Huge Beauty Haul (New In #37)

We are here again. I left new products to accumulate for too long again and now I have a massive post to write again. These posts actually make me think how much money I spend on these kinds of things and I'm satisfied with the fact that I don't buy useless crap anymore like I sometimes used to. Now I don't even go to drugstores anymore and the new products don't really interest me anymore. Sometimes bloggers made such good posts that I had a feeling I needed something but now I really trust two Slovenian beauty bloggers and I mostly just buy the product if I really like it and if they recommended it. You probably know who they are but if you don't, you should check out Mateja and Petra.

The Body Shop Warm Vanilla Shower Gel*
The shower gel has a regular thicker consistency like most of the TBS shower gels. To me, it smells the same as the last year's version, a bit caramelly. The scent is not strong when you use it but it lingers for a while. I could smell it in the bathroom for quite some time.

The Body Shop Juicy Pear Body Yogurt*
I really like body yogurts from TBS, I almost used up my ginger one. They are so quick to apply and they sink into the skin fast but I still feel that they leave my skin hydrated enough. I use them about two-three times a week but other days I do need something more nourishing. The scent is nice but not my favourite but I feel it's a scent that everybody would like, it's fruity and sweet.

The Body Shop Rich Plum Hand Cream*
This is my new favorite hand cream. For a long time, I loved the shea butter hand cream from L'Occitane but now I like this one better, mostly because I got a bit bored of the scent. I didn't expect for a TBS hand cream to be so good, I had one before but I didn't use it because it wasn't so good but I'm so impressed with this one. Also, the Rich Plum collection is my favorite out of the three TBS Christmas collections, very similar to Frosted Plum, I love it.

The Body Shop Salted Caramel and Vanilla Reed Diffuser*
This smells so nice and Christmasy but it's so strong that I actually got lightheaded a few times. I thought I will get a migraine or something, I was feeling tired and nauseous. I didn't even realize at first that this all is because of the diffuser but then Simona mentioned the same thing in her post and I realized what it was. Since then, I took the sticks out and I sealed the diffuser and after two weeks I can still smell it. I had the diffuser in the kitchen which is downstairs and even that few minutes when I was in the kitchen were too much for me. 

Butters Mango and Amaretto-Banana Butter
If you read my blog, you know Butters brand is my new favourite discovery of the year, I already made a post about them here. I have very dry skin that gets even drier in winter and these butters keep it nourished. This time I went with mango, which has a nice but subtle scent. The other one is amaretto-banana and I have to say that I needed some time to get used to the scent but now I really enjoy it. It smells just like a banana dessert.

Butters Cocoa, Raspberry-Vanilla, Strawbery and Belly Butter
On Black Friday I ordered some more butters. These were my only BF online order and that says something. This time I repurchased strawberry scent because it's my absolute favourite out of all. I also chose belly butter because I have heard many good things about it. Raspberry-vanilla is a newer scent but it's too sweet and strong for my taste. My mom got the cocoa version, she likes the anti-age version but they didn't have it in stock.

Essence Glow My Mind LE Baked Highlighter Palette and Brush*
The highlighters are very soft to the touch and very pigmented. Also, there is a lot of shimmer so I don't use it for everyday wear. All three shades are rose-goldy and suit my skin tone well.
The brush is dense and the quality is okay. It's perfect to apply a more subtle highlighter but for the highlighters in this palette is too dense and picks up too much product.

Essence From Santa With Love LE Powder and Eyeshadow Brush
I saw these style of brushes in last year's winter collection from Essence but I didn't get them back then so I bought them this year. First, I got the powder brush but then when I was in Müller I also got the eyeshadow brush. So far so good, I have nothing to complain about.

Avon True Ageless Day Cream SPF 30 and Overnight Gel
I really liked how these looked and I heard my favourite cream from Avon is discontinued so I thought I would give these two a try. Firstly, I think the day cream stings my eyes but I have to test it more to surely say that. The overnight gel is good so far. It's similar to the Hydration line but I still prefer that one.

Avon Nutra Effect Hydration Overnight Gel-Cream
This is the cream that Avon discontinued. I have repurchased so many of these thought the year and if I knew about this sooner I would probably order 10 more. I also made a review here.

Green Line Basic Moisturizing Cream
I like to use this cream a few times a week in my nighttime routine, in summer I use it almost every night. It is enough hydrating for when I don't want a heavy cream on my face, it sinks in quickly and feels very lightweight. Also, this huge packaging (100ml) costs around 6€ which is a really good price. The scent is very fresh.

Oriflame Swedish Spa Soft Tide Hand Mask*
I didn't have time to try this hand mask yet but I have heard good things about it.

Oriflame Magnetista Eau de Parfum*
I made a review of the fragrance here. The scent is fruity and sweet at first, later it gets more floral. The base notes are vanilla and sandalwood.

Avon Little Black Dress Sample Size
I think this is one of the most famous Avon's fragrances and everybody raves about it. Notes are cyclamen, ylang-ylang and plum. It smells more grown-up and more expansive than it really is. Plus, I really like that it's a roll-on.

Avon Planet Spa Heavenly Hydration Moisturizing Hand Cream
I got this as a gift with purchase but I don't like it. The cream itself is lightweight and it's not enough for my dry skin. Also, the scent is not up my alley.

Avon Planet Spa Aromatherapy Beauty Sleep Hand Cream*
Another hand cream from Avon. I haven't tried it yet but the scent is so strong that I will probably give it away in a giveaway because I can't stand strong scents.

Avon Mark Epic Lip Powder Pen Lipstick in shade Trust Fall*
Trust fall is a gorgeous rose shade but I don't get the concept of this packaging. When I first opened it, it worked okay but now, a few weeks later, it the lipstick dried or something. I can't get it to have any pigmentation. I know it's a powder pen but still, it just doesn't work. I'm confused, I haven't seen anybody talk about that.

Ebelin Professional Nagellackentferner Express and Aveo Professional Nagellackenferner Sensitive
These are a repurchase. The sponge nail polish remover is just genius and so quick to use. But don't remove any strong coloured polishes with it because the colour stays in the bottle and stains your fingers when you use it again.

Pantene Pro-V Super Food Pflegespüllung
I already have one Pantene conditioner and I absolutely love it, so I got another one, this one is from the Super Food line. I haven't tried it yet but if it's as good as the one that I' currently using it will be great.

Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo
I have also been loving Dove shampoos lately. This, compared with Pantene conditioner is a top combination for dry hair.

Borotalco Original Deo Stick
My favourite for years, it never disappointed me.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner
Also a repurchase. I use this toner here and there when I feel my skin is acting up. I have been using it for a while now and I actually put it in my 2018 favourites.

Microcell Nail Repair 2000
I desperately needed something to fix my weak nails. When my nails grow a bit, they always start to chip and layer and I really don't know what to do anymore. I heard so many good things about this Microcell Nail Repair but I have been using it for a few weeks and I don't think it's working well. If you have any recommendations for weak nails, please let me know.

Clay Ritual The Moon Massage Candle*
Clay Ritual has a new product and I love the idea. It's a candle that you burn and you can use the oil for your body. I haven't heard of anything like that before. I haven't tried it yet, I didn't have time but I will definitely test it and report about it.

Avon Merry Little Plum Bath and Body Wash*
This smells so good I can't even describe it. I haven't tried it yet because I didn't have time but I'm sure I will love it.

Avon Care Enriching Moisture with Yoghurt & Honey Hand Cream*
Lately, I have received so many hand creams that I didn't have time to test this one yet.

Avon Mark Prism Lipstick Orbital Lust*
This lipstick has gorgeous packaging, dark with some holo shimmer. The shade is called Orbital Lust and is one of the nude ones. I like the shade itself but I don't like how lipsticks with shimmer look on me, so I'm not a fan.

Catrice Kaviar Gauche 2019 Mini Lipstick Set and Essence Brushes*
This was such a nice surprise from Dominur. They sent me a set of mini lipsticks that I was interested in when the collection was in stores but I never bought it. Lipsticks come in small metal tin packaging and you get two nude shades, a red and a more peachy shade. These are perfect to throw in your purse and they are the size that I could maybe even use up completely. For the brushes, I'm not sure from which collection they are but there is never enough of them. I actually like limited edition brushes from Essence and Catrice, so I'm excited to also try these.

Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Primer Concealer and Foundation 45 Warm Almond*
I have never tried a Max Factor foundation before, at least I don't remember. I googled and found some awesome reviews for this one. I got the shade 45 warm almond and it's a little too light for me, even now, when my tan is gone. I only tried it once but I'm pretty sure it oxidized a bit so it was okay. This foundation is supposed to be 3-in-1 with primer, concealer, and foundation. I only applied a little bit of it for a natural look and I did like it. It didn't feel oily, I only wore it for a couple of hours but I didn't have the need to apply powder on top. It looked very natural, just what I like with foundations. The only bad thing is, that it emphasized dry patches but to be fair, my skin is pretty dry right now. These are just first impressions, I need to test it more to see how it performs.

Oriflame Women's Collection Delicate Blossom Gift Set*
This was a lovely gift from Oriflame. It's a set with a fragrance and a body lotion. This has such a strong scent that when I left the packaging sealed on my table for one day I could smell the scent the other day. It's a classic floral scent that it's not really up my street, I prefer more fruity and sweet scents.

H&M Makeup Sponges
These H&M makeup sponges are the only ones I have found that I like. They are about 3-4€ but I usually wait for discounts so I get them even cheaper.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Najprej hvala za zaupanje. Mi veliko pomeni. <3 Jaz tudi najraje berem tebe in Matejo. Realne ocene in ravno dovolj infomacij :).

    A so res ukinili Avon hydration gel kremo? Pa ravno ko sem že vse prijateljice navadila na to kremo. Saj ne morem verjeti. Jaz pa le čakam, kdaj bo spet v katalogu. To in dnevno verzijo sem res vedno uporabljala. Zdaj bom pa očitno morala kupit nekaj drugega. Bi bila Ageless gel krema dobro nadomestilo?

    Superfood balzam je meni super. Sploh zdaj pozimi, ko imam lase bolj suhe. Je pa kar negovalen, tak bolj gost kot drugi se mi zdi.

    Ko sem imela tudi sama precej šibke nohte, sem uporabljala Eveline 8 in 1 total action lak za nohte. Sicer po navodilih, potem pa vedno kot podlak in mi je kar pomagal. Niso se cepili in so bili bolj trdi. Ampak ne morem garantirat, da bodo tudi tebi. Jaz si zdaj že zelo dolgo ne lakiram nohtov in so tudi veliko bolj trpežni. Ampak ok, saj to je jasno, lak za nohte tudi vpliva na nohte.

    Catrice mini šminke so meni fantastične. Sploh oba nude odtenka. Zelo lepo mazljiva in tak super občutek na ustnicah. Ne bi nikoli rekla, da je to od Catrice šminka :D.

    Glede Max Factor podlage se strinjam s tvojimi besedami. Meni je bila na začetku tudi zelo všeč, sploh ker sem tudi jaz dobila odtenek 45 in je bil presenetljivo svetel - ampak tudi meni oksidira oz se potemni ob nanosu. In vsepovsod kjer imam kaj suhe kože ali teksture izgleda katastrofalno. Vsepovsod drugje je pa odličen in nikoli nisem mastna pod njim. Ne morem se odločit ali mi je všeč, ali je zanič :D.

    1. Hvala :D <3

      Ja, mislim da mi je ena bralka javila, da ima nek znak ob strani, da gre iz prodaje in zdaj je res več ni bilo :/ Ageless je podoben gel, mi je všeč, ampak te perlice so pa malo pita. Nekatere se lepo razmažejo, nekatere pa nikakor, pol pa to ostane na koži in če ne opaziš, imaš cel dan na obrazu haha :D

      Jaz si jih tudi zelo redko lakiram zadnje čase, pa še vseeno. Bom še probala s tem Microcellom, drugače pa še ta Eveline, da vidim, če bo s tem kaj boljše.

      Jaz še podlage nisem utegnila dalje stestirati, ampak mislim, da ne bo okej, če se res tako pozna potem suha koža :/
