Beauty Review | Ziaja.

As am I getting older I’m getting more and more idle. I think it is because you feel your body is changing, like it is upgrading towards adulthood. Your body, your mind and skin changes into a ‘’shape’’ that is called ‘’you’’’. You will get to know yourself better and you will anticipate to it. Whether you like it or not! It is just something that you cannot change because it is called life.

During my life, my facial skin became important to me, I suffered from acne my whole teenage years and they still pop up every now and then. We all are familiar with those annoying intruders on our faces that are caused by stress, diet and even cosmetic products. Because of this, am I always pleased to get to know new brands. Especially when you discover them spontaneously. I met Ziaja through my latest unboxing blogpost and I fell in love with it ever since.

The beauty of Ziaja is that it is based on natural active ingredients and their pharmaceutical experiences, it has a refined and pleasant fragrance and light texture. All their products are carefully dermatologically and allergy tested in their own labs, never on animals! I have been using it for a while now and I am very pleased with it. The moment I opened it for the first time, the smell was such a pleasure to smell! Not chemical at all. The preservatives are reduced to the essential minimum making it enjoyable to use.

The assortment of Ziaja is tremendous; from woman to men to children. Something for everyone! Their focus is on skin, so you will find a range of facial care, body care and even hair care. Because Ziaja has a wide range of beauty products they have thought of all skin types and this shows that they are thoughtful towards their customers.

Lately wat also has been important to me is where I get my beauty products from and if it truly works. I enjoy it every time when I use it. Whenever I’m done with showering I use Moisturising Body Lotion with Silk Proteins. It absorbs quickly and my skin feels soft right away! Because it is moisturising and it reduces skin roughness I use it also on my elbows and knees for that extra soft touch. During my day, I use the Manuka Tree Purifying Normalising Day Cream. It has an SPF 10 factor and it is for an oily/combination skin type which matches perfectly with my own skin type. My facial skin goes from oily, especially on my T-Zone (forehead, nose, chin and the apples of my cheeks.) to dry at my jaw line. The smell of the Manuka Tree is refreshing on my skin and what I mostly love it doesn’t make my face oily at all!

When I want to pamper myself after a long day I remove my makeup with the Cucumber Cleansing Milk, yet again for an oily/combination skin type. The smell of cucumber makes me feel like I’m in a spa resort relaxing with a towel on my head and two slices of cucumber on my eyes. Perfect!

Are you already imagining it Loves?

New In | Unboxing Love #3

img_4700

Style Tone box from month November popped out of my mail box and it is also my last box to review for you Loves. The theme of this month is Power Woman, instead of wearing fluffy pj’s and fuzzy socks to hide in your cocoon of comfort this season are these products for pampering to pop out of it! As my last box was a bit of ‘’mwah’’ am I pleased to see that this box turned out lovely.

Let me start first with the Lord & Berry ultimate lipliner in the colour Nude. The formula of the pencil is enriched with macadamia oil and waterlily extracts. It is waterproof and blends so well! I have an Essence lipstick (Cute Nude) that suits perfect with it. Or I can use it with the Tini Beauty lipstick in the colour Pink Champagne. When I opened it to try it on I’ve noticed golden glitter sparkles on it! It is so subtle that you cannot see it but when you apply it; hello beautiful lips! I totally see what Style Tone did there; perfect match!

They were very thoughtful about this Power Woman box. The Cailyn Cosmetics Mummy Whipping Bubble Cleansing Mask is a perfect 3 minutes’ mask for an energy boost! I must say that the package looks a bit scary, it does make you curious what is it all about. This sheet mask uses an advanced technology of oxygenated cleansing bubbles imbued within unique mold-inducing microfiber to create a soothing and softening formula that deeply cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates the skin. This is such a mouth full! My curiosity is sparked.

In this season our hands need pampering more than ever, this Coconut Hand Cream from Ziaja comes then in handy. Get it? Handy! Hihi…The smell of coconut is not overwhelming, the familiar coconut smell around you will not occur. Perfect for a tropical feel when it’s cold outside! While we are at it; the nail polish from Meeki Beauty Lab will look like a fresh manicure with this hand cream! In the box, I found the colour Sophie. I don’t wear black coloured nail polishes but I’m going to give this one a try!

As I told you Loves, this is my last Style Tone Box. I had a three-month subscription which I choose to meet new beauty brands. It is also nice to see that the cosmetic brands develop items that are animal cruelty free and vegan.

Which item caught your eye Loves?

Beauty Look | Double Up!

IMG_3520

New title and look! From today all blogpost about a make-up look is going to be called new look instead of beauty. I’m going through some blog changes Loves, you will notice it soon.

Anyway, let’s get started!

I did this look when I went to a Moroccan wedding last year. Today I want to show you how I did it. I started first with my favourite concealer from Essence. As you can see it is time for a new one. I applied it on my impurities and under my eyes as an upside down triangle for a natural look. After concealer I used H&M BB Cream Beauty Balm in Rose Porcelain. I am so glad I found this gem! I finally found a good cream that matched my skin tone. It truly covers very well for a BB cream; it also doesn’t feel heavy on my face like a foundation. Since the new beauty department of H&M Beauty I’m falling more and more in love with H&M.

And now my eyes. I always used an eyeliner pen because it is easy to use. This time I tried a Gel Eyeliner from Max & More. It came with an eyeliner brush and I must say I’m impressed. Not only is Max & More a perfect budget brand and cruelty free, it has good make-up! The Gel Eyeliner is waterproof so it stayed perfect all day. On top of the black eyeliner line I used H&M Liquid Eyeliner in Green. Perfect double up! To finish it off I used Maybelline New York Illegal Definition Mascara on my eyelashes, which I forgot to place with the others for pictures. Sorry Loves!

On my cheeks I applied MAC Soft & Gentle with the strobing technique. To do this I used a Butterfly Brush by Kruidvat Professional. This brand is from my local drugstore. It is so easy to work with. It feels light in your hand, different then an ordinary brush.

For my lips I used Max & More Lip Liner in Dark Red. I applied all over my lip line. Also this lip pencil came together with the Dark Red Lipstick. Even though it says Dark Red, I expected it would be like the colour Velvet Red but it came out lighter.

What do you think Loves, would you do a double up too?
