Review: Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath and Shower Gel


Hi loves! The last post on this week is on Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath and Shower Gel (500 ml). 


The shower gel comes in a big squeeze tube, which is easy to get the product out. I think in the end its hard to get it out though. I need to put the bottle upside down, so I would have liked to see it with a pump.

The formula is without parabens and is not tested on animals. Its infused with honey extract. It bumbles up well when I have been using it on shower and it has a strong sweet scent, which I do like most days. Sometime I switch it up and go for another scent, which is fresh floral or fruity scent. I do like honey scented products, but this one has only hint of honey to it. The scent of this shower gel reminds me of a syrup scent.


It leaves my skin clean and soft, after I have used it. I don't feel it dries out my skin as some other shower gel do. 


I'm overall happy with this shower gel. Its affordable (around 3 or 4 EUR), has a cute design and smells good :) I bought mine in Alber Heijn and they do have them on offer all the time.



Have you tried any of their products before?

Epic Hair Care Haul | Garnier, L'Oreal Schwarzkopf....


Hi loves! I have a collective hair care haul. I can't believe I ended up buying so many hair care products, but it is something I use always and there was sale :D 

I picked up from a local drugstore Kruidvat Moroccan Argan Oil (150 ml). I got it on sale and its something I always use. I'm eager to see if it preforms better or worse then some of my other hair oils.

I also picked up John Frieda Frizz Ease (100 ml), which is something Tati from Glam Life Guru was recommending, if you don't follow her, you should. She makes amazing hauls and has great reviews. I'll link her YouTube channel here. Anyway this should take the frizz away, which i do get, as I do have dry hair.


Lets continue with Garnier products, because I have a lot. I picked up their Loving Blends Body Bodymilk  with Olive Oil (250 ml). I have already used it and can say it smells so good and hydrates the skin instantly. 

Continuing with hair products from Gariner, I got their Fructis Style Densify Volume & Mass Maker Mousse (200 ml). I have used other products from the range, which you can read about here. I have high hopes for it and I'll let you know in another post how I like it.

I got also from their Loving Blends Honey Treasures range Repairing Shampoo (300 ml) and Conditioner (200 ml). I have dry hair and it claims to nourish the hair, so I have high hopes for this range. I also got from the same range Repairing Mask (300 ml) and Repairing Serum (50 ml).


Then I picked up Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omega Repair range. I got their Shampoo (250 ml) and Conditioner (250 ml). The formula is gentle and with pearl essence, so I have high hopes for it. I picked up their Intensive Mask (200 ml) as well. I'll take all the help I can get when it comes to my dry hair ;)

I also got from the same range their BB beauty Balm (100 ml). It has 7 benefits and one is split end prevention, which is something I need for my hair. I blow-dry my hair every time I wash it and it can make it already dry and cause me to have split ends.


I have few products from L'Oreal as well and I picked up their Elvive Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo (250 ml) and Conditioner (200 ml). From the same range I got their Nourishing Hair Mask (300 ml) as well.


Because I have dry hair I got L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil hair oil (100 ml), which is for colored hair. It comes in a glass bottle and has a pump and I adore nourishing hair products, because of my dry hair.

The last 2 items are also from L'Oreal and I got their Hair Expertise Ever Rich Nourishing Care System Shampoo (250 ml) and Conditioner (250 ml). The formula is with botanical oils and there is no sulfates. 



I haven't tried any of these products before, so I have lot to test out and share with you guys in the next post. If you have tried any of these products do let me know your experience in the comments section :)

Review: Oriflame Eleo Range


Hi loves! I love trying out beauty products and like to test out cheaper and more luxury products. I have been testing out Oriflame Eleo hair range, which is more pricier then their other hair care items.  The formula is infused with Argan and Rose oils and also with vitamin F. The range claims to strengthen and protect the hair, and also smoothens and restores hairs natural shine.


I picked up from the range Shampoo (200 ml, 16 EUR), Conditioner (150 ml, 16 EUR) and Hair Mask (125 ml, 24 EUR). These fit all hair types and I have dry hair. I picked this range up because the formula has argan oil in it and my hair always loves everything with argan oil.

The 3 items I picked up have all very fragranced scent to them, which is not something I personally like. I would prefer something more lighter. The range has hair oils as well, which I didn't pick up, because of the price. 


The shampoo and conditioner both come in squeeze tube, which is easy to use when taking shower. This range didn't irritate my scalp, which surprised me, because how heavily fragranced the range is. The shampoo cleans my hair well, I can't say, it doesn't do what it should, but the conditioner is not making my hair as soft as I would like. I really don't feel these give my hare any softness or make it smooth. I feel my Garnier Fructis Thick & Gorgeous hair range (review) was better to my hair and the price was way better.



Usually when I use hair masks I end up with softer and smooth hair, but not with this one. It made my hair softer, but like conditioner would do. I didn't feel like my hair was nourished at all, which I expect a hair mask with argan oil to do. 

I applied the mask to towel dry hair and kept it on for 5 minutes and then rinsed it. Like I said before my hair wasn't as soft as I expected. It was as soft as a conditioner would make it.


As you can see I'm not happy with this range. I had so high hope for it and it didn't live up to my expectations. There is way better choices in the drugstore with less money.


Which is most disappointing hair product you have used?

Review: The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Sorbet


Hi loves! I'm a huge fan of Mojito and when The Body Shop game out with the Virgin Mojito range I knew I want to try it. I picked up from the range Body Sorbet (200 ml), which is perfect formula for summer ;)


The lotion comes in  a squeeze tube and the design of the packaging is really summery, with lime and mint on it. Its easy to get as much product out as I want. Also I like I can see how much product I have used up. 


The formula of it is like a gel, which feels very refreshing when the weather is hot. We don't have heat wave at the moment (it rains almost every day) and it still feels refreshing on skin. It sinks instantly into the skin and hydrating it. It doesn't feel sticky after application, which is not something I like. Its also handy to use when you are on a rush, but your skin needs some hydrations, because it absorbs into the skin so fast.


If you where wondering how it smells, it reminds me of lemonade with hint of mint to it. It instantly takes me to summer and how I used to have lemonade by the Mediterranean and they do add mint to the mix, which makes it so good and yummy. 


I'm loving the formula for this time of the year and the scent of it smells so yummy and summery. Now I'm eager to try other flavors from they Body Sorbet range.


Have you tried any of the body sorbets already?

Review: Phyto Secret De Nuit Hydrating Regenerating Night Treatment


Hi loves! This week I'll be only reviewing hair and body care items. To start the week off I'll have review on Phyto Secret De Nuit Hydrating Regenerating Night Treatment (75 ml, 27.90 EUR). I have been using it on and off for years, so its fully tested and I'm ready to share my thoughts on it ;)

The treatment comes in glass blue bottle and has a pump, which makes using it so easy. The formula is with out Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. 

What they say:
Meticulously selected for their regenerative and antioxidant properties, black orchid extract, grape procyanidins, ceramides, and essential fatty acids are blended in Secret de Nuit. This incredibly luxurious treatment goes to work as you sleep to intensely hydrate, replenish, and help strengthen hair's ability to defend itself against external aggressors. Wake up to radiantly soft, supple, manageable hair that looks its healthiest.

The formula of it is more to liquid side and I use 2 pumps. I apply it to the end of the hairs before I go to bed and leave it in the hair. Its recommended to use 2 to 3 times a week, but I have been using it almost every evening. I have very dry hair, so I need all the extra hydration I can get ;) I usually take this treatment out when I need an extra care and boost. 

Whit most treatments I don't see the change in my hair the next day, but this one makes my hair softer and the end of my hairs look healthier and smoother. Its like magic in the bottle, plus it smells good and my hubby seems to like the scent of it as well :)


Active ingredients:
  • Milk Thistle Fruit Extract, which regenerates and promotes suppleness and shine
  • Ceramides and Essential Fatty Acids
  • Macadamia Oil hydrates, softens, and nourishes the hair
  • Black Orchid Extract contains antioxidant properties

I can't be more happy with this hair treatment! It instantly makes my hair look nicer and I can be sure to have good hair day the next day. If you have dry hair I highly recommend this night treatment and together with the Aïcha hair serum I can be sure to have healthy hair.

This is available on Feel Unique, which you can check out here. If you are in the US you can find it on Sephora for $40 and I'll link it here.

Which is your favorite hair treatment?

Review: Lollipops Pink Eyes Palette


Hi loves! When I was in Brussels I came across a new brand to me, which had the cutest packaging. The brand is called Lollipops and I got their Pink Eyes Palette (7.2 g, 16.63 EUR).


The packaging of the palette is cardboard and closes magnetically. I find the packaging bit bulky, because it does contain only 4 eye shadows, little applicator and a mirror. Other then that the design of it is so cute and girly. 


The palette contains 1 matte eye shadow and 3 shimmery. The formula of these is creamy and buttery to the touch. I feel the lighter shades are more silky to the touch then others. The shadows are all nicely pigmented. One of the shadows stood out for me and its the second shade from left. I feel the formula of it is smoother and pigmentation is better as well.


The darker shades both have glitter in it, which makes these perfect to do smokey eye with. I really enjoyed the dark brown, which had golden glitter in it. Some reason it doesn't come out on the swatches, but trust me there is glitter ;) 

I have been wearing these with and with out a eye shadow primer and can report back these stayed on all day with out a primer as well. I also didn't experience any creasing or color fading. My eye lids are more to dry side, so I'm not sure if it plays any roll.


Overall I'm happy with this quad. The packaging is bit big, but it is really cute :) I'm eager to try more of their products and see how I like them. On their page there wasn't this palette available, but I'll link the rest of their makeup line here. They also do bags, shoes and other accessories. 


Have you tried anything from them before?
