Shopping in Germany: Alverde body & skin care

Some Alverde bodycare products I bought from Germany this autumn. This post is also only in English because I've been too busy (and lazy) ... Grapefruit-Bambu Shower gel 1.45€ & Papaya-Sea buckthorn shower cream. The shower gel is ok but it's not as concentrated as S.A.V.E or The body Shop shower gels. I won't buy it again but the scent was very good! I prefer soap bars anyway. Shower Cream smells yummy too but it was more like gel-cream, I use this kind of products in shaving but Weleda's cream wash is so much creamier & better! Macgo-acai Anti-Aging lotion 2.95€, Ultra Sensitive body lotion 2.95€, Macademia nut body butter 2.95€. I LOVE Alverde body lotions & butters , I won't use anything else anymore. *heart* These are BDIH cerfied, CHEAP, smell too good and feel so nice on skin (I can't use anything containing silicone anymore, those feel just disgusting after natural ones) . This time I got Vitamin lotion & unscented Jojoba lo

[NOTD] Essence Show your Feet "In the Jungle"

I have a few Essence Show Your feet nail polishes and I've really liked the quality. This one was not that opaque as the colors I bought before (but those were almost one coaters), this one ok after 2 but would have better with 3 coats. This nail polish was very easy to remove! Usually I have green nail polish all over my fingers but with this one, I didn't have any problems. Yay! Minulla on muutama Essencen Show Your Feet-lakka jo ennestään ja olen pitänyt kovasti niiden laadusta. Tämä lakkahan on tarkoitettu varpaankynsiin mutta pelittää toki mainiosti myös sormissa! Tämä vihreä ei ollut niin peittävä kuin aiemmin hankkimani turkoosi ja lila, mutta ne olivatkin peittäviä jo yhdellä kerroksella. Tämä oli ok kahdella mutta olisi ollut vielä parempi kolmella. Tämä oli hyvin helppo poistaa, toisinaan viheän lakan jäljiltä sormetkin ovat ihan vihreät mutta tämä lähti heti pois. Ostan näitä jatkossakin :)

Shopping in Germany: P2 nail care products

apricot cuticle cream, apricot nail pen 2.75€, cuticle softerner pen 2.45€. I bought some nail care prodocts from Germany and now I've tested them a while. This post is also only in English, I'm just too busy at the moment :P Reviews of many products also look confusing with many different languages.  I've noticed that many bloggers like these products and no wonder, these really were inexpensive and very nice products! I'll definitely buy more next time I visit Germany :) Apricot cuticle cream : Excellent quality and I love the creamy consistency & lovely scent of apricot. *heart* Felt nourishing. Apricot nail care pencil : My favorite! This is SO easy to use, I love the brush applicator. Too bad I bought just one, I need this on my work place, bedside table, makeup table, handbag... ;D The smell is lovely and the consistency is fresh, non greasy gel-cream. Cuticle Softener pen: I always hate cuticle softeners, because my cuticle are terrible :P I wish I

Shopping in Germany: Alverde hair care

I took me "a while" to write this :P I'll also write only in English, since these are unfortunately not sold in Finland (and I'm too busy). The prices are CHEAP: shampoos 1.95€ and conditioners 2.25€. Most of these shampoos or conditoners are not ecocertified but vegan & silicone free, there is one ecocertifien conditioner (sensitive) but I don't like it at all. Most of the Alverde products are ecocertified. I bought Alverde Men shampoo for my husband and he loves it :D It's as good as the other Alverde shampoos (I've tested it too) but it looks more masculine and contains beer. I recommend this to your dads, husbands, boyfriends & sons :D The scent is ok for women too, it's not like "masculine" scents usually. NaTrue certified. I also bought Alverde Men Eye roll-on for him but it's mine now ;D It is REALLY good, easy to apply, refreshing and the scent is mild & neutral (not masculine or feminine), I recommend this to e

Canmake Nudy Glow lip gloss "Sugar Milk Tea"

I bought Canmake's Nudy Glow in Sugar Milk Tea when I was shopping with Jennifer in Hong Kong :) This gloss is really a lovely nude gloss, too bad that I just have far to many nude glosses! Canmake is a japanese brand so there were no incis in this package. The color is very nice, so neutral and light that it looks good with strong eyemakeup. I like the brush applicator and creamy consistency. These are not very lasting on lips, but I don't think any lipglosses really are... This also gives nice amount of color, it's nude but not invisible :) I think this is as good as MAC's ridiculously overpriced (that big tube contains as much as travel sizes usually :P) Cremesheen glasses. Ostin Canmaken Nudy Glow huulikiillon sävyssä Milk Sugar Tea ollessani Jenniferin kanssa shoppailemssa Hong Kongissa :) Tämä kiilto on oikein ihana, harmi vain kun tällaisia on kertynyt kaapit pullolleen jo :P Canmake on japanilainen markettimerkki ja kuten yleensäkin japanilaisista tuotteist
