Things of Beauty Pt. I

A while ago I was given the opportunity to test out some new beauty products by Newpharma* for you – and of course I said yes!

Every woman wants to look beautiful in some ways and of course the right products help you to achieve that goal. So sit back, relax and get your pen and paper ready so you can make some notes on what to buy and what not to. 😉

This is the product I definitely loved the most of all the ones tested. I have very dry and sensitive skin, which tends to spots and blemishes, so it’s often hard to find a cleanser which doesn’t dry out my skin even more. The Uriage Cleansing Gel leaves your skin purified, fresh and soft after usage. Conclusion: would buy again!

Another product I really liked, although it didn’t moisture my skin as much as the Uriage one did, was the Vichy Make-Up remover. A big advantage in comparison with the Uriage cleanser is that it doesn’t only clean the skin but also helps to get rid of all your make-up (even waterproof). The texture is very creamy, easy to apply and smells pretty good. 

The third cleanser in the row. I consider micellar waters as a very practical thing: you only need to apply a bit of it on a cotton pad and you are good to go. The sad thing is that my skin doesn’t tolerate fluids as much. My skin feels dry afterwards and gets spotty. Same for this cleanser by Vichy.

No recommendation from me! 🙁

I had two packs of the Vichy Mineral Mask, so I could try it more than once.

The texture is quite nice. It’s like some kind of gel. It refreshes the skin immediately and gets absorbed pretty fast.

The first time I applied it on my face I didn’t like it that much, because as so often my skin wasn’t happy about the new product. The second time I directly put it on after showering and my skin seemed to stand it much better. Maybe I need to give it one more try to finally make my decision if I’d recommend it or not. If you skin isn’t as sensitive as mine, I would say that you should give it a go 😉

I’ve seen a few advertisements on Instagram for  the Minéral 89 Hyaluron-Boosterso I was quite excited to test it out. The texture is very similar to the one from the mask. The booster consists of only 11 ingredients, while 89 % of it are based on Vichys Minéral water. You can use it as a plump up serum or as a compensatory for your primer. I’ve used it a few times but I didn’t feel or see much of a difference. Although the product is meant for very sensitive skin, mine didn’t tolerated as much (ugh!). 

That’s another favorite! The Dermalex Shower Oil smells like heaven and is perfect for dry and sensitive skin. The oily texture is quite nice, especially because it’s easy to apply.

Would definitely buy it over and over again!

I always wanted to test out the products by Darphine, but as those aren’t the cheapest I never bought something. So I was really happy about the Darphine products I got to try. The first one is the Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood and I really love how it works: You put a bit of it on your hand, add some water and the product unfolds itself into a wonderful smelling cleansing milk. It leaves your skin soft and clean. Highly recommend you to test it out!

The Illuminating Oil Serum was the second product by Darphin I got from Newpharma. I was really curious about it as I’m very much into serums. It should help your skin to absorb more moisture and I can’t say any other. It also smells very good, the texture is oily and easy to apply. Would order it again! ♥

A mascara which helps your lashes to grow? Sounds very promising! I never had lash extensions or a lash lift, I like my lashes more natural. Nonetheless, a good mascara is your best friend, especially if it helps you on the long run. The La Roche-Posay Respectissime Mascara is definitely worth investing your money! Need to see how it affects the length of my lashes over a longer period of time (first results are expected after four weeks of usage).

Hope you enjoyed my little test! Have you tried any of these products? What’s your favorite “beauty thing”?

    Also als erstes: die Bilder sind absolut umwerfend! Du siehst toll aus Liebes.
    Danke auch für die Reviews zu verschiedenen Produkten. Ich habe auch eine Zeit lang Vichy getestet, weil meine Haut wirklich sehr “schwierig” ist und mochte es sehr.

    Wie schön sind bitte diese Bilder ♥ So toll schaust du aus!
    Ich habe bisher keine Erfahrungen mit der Marke gemacht. Ich bin nicht so experimentierfreudig, aber es hört sich sehr vielversprechend an, wie ich finde 🙂

    Liebe Grüße

    Wow erstmal sind die Bilder einfach umwerfend – du schaust so glamourös aus!
    Und der Uriage Cleanser klingt wirklich toll, meine Haut ist auch ziemlich empfindlich – da bin ich auch immer vorsichtig beim testen von neuen produkten… 😉
