REVIEW: Mane'N Tail Shampoo & Conditioner

Hey guys!

Another post about the product we got in the LookFantastic beauty box. This time it's a Mane'n tail shampoo and a conditioner. I heard many great things about the shampoo but let's see if it stood up to my expectations :)


We got a sample size of these two, but it's a generous sample with 60 ml of product which was enough for me to properly try it out.


They both contain sulfates. After washing my hair a couple of times, I have to be honest with you, I really don't understand what the rave is about. Honestly, my hair didn't really feel good - straw-like. Of course I did use it in combination with conditioner but that was only worse. It made my hair super oily.

It's very thick in texture and hardly has any scent. As you would guess, it was made for horses but these products are also safe on cats/dogs.


I wouldn't recommend it for dry hair, or if you do use it, use it in combination with a good conditioner, since it does dry your hair out. Apparently it's also suppose to help you with hair growth, but I didn't notice anything.

To conclude, I didn't like it at all. My hair didn't feel clean and I would not recommend it even though it was raved about.

What do you think, have you tried this shampoo? Let me know!

Have a wonderful day <3

REVIEW: Skin79 BB Cream

Hey everyone :)

Today's review is about another product I got from LookFantastic beauty box. It's a Skin79 BB Cream. This is a Korean BB cream and the perfect mix between skin care and makeup. Contains Damask Rose Flower Water and Acerola Extract. It comes in several different shades like “Pink”, “Orange”, “Purple”, “Green” and “Gold”. All of them however, are quite light. Pink is the brightest shade. This BB cream is brightening, smoothes out the skin, protecting the skin, moisturizes and conceals an uneven skin tone. Anti-aging against wrinkles and lines. Protects against UV light with SPF 30 PA ++. Sebum control. The formula balances water and oil in the skin and dries to a soft, powdery smooth finish that looks fresh throughout the day.


 You only need a small amount of BB cream to cover the entire face, a little goes a long way. Creamy and soft yet very concentrated thick texture. Almost a “wax” type feeling. Light skin care type scent. For the full size product you get 40g of product and it costs around 12€.


Ingredient Highlights : Arbutin, Tangerine Oil, Phyto-Complex, Adenosine, Ceraminde 3.


I really love this bb cream, it gives a nice medium coverage and evens out my skin tone. I love it so much I even ordered a pack of three (gold, violet and pink). Can't wait to get them :)

You can see how it looks on me. I apply it with a wet beauty blender.



PROS:
- affordable
- doesn't cling to dry patches
- awesome formula for both dry and oil types

CONS:
- comes only in one shade

All in all I really love it. Already repuchased it and can't wait to try other versions of this cream as well. A bit disappointing that it only comes in one shade, but that's how usually is with BB creams.

Hope you enjoyed, let me know if you tried it :)

Kisses,
Katja

REVIEW: Avon Mark Epic Lip Lipstick

Hey loves <3

Avon will soon come out with the new line of Mark lipsticks called Mark Epic Lip. These are two in one - a primer and lipstick hybrid that comes in 17 different shades. Not only does this range stick to traditional shades but they actually included some blues and a grey shade. I decided to buy one lipstick in shade  Rosy Outlook.



You get 3,6g of product and the regular price for these will be 8,50€. The second ingredient is a bit worrying since it is rated as a safety level of 6 on cosdna. It's basically a sunscreen but  extensive research has shown that a number of UV filters frequently used in the formulation of commercial sunscreens, such as 4 MBC, octyl methoxycinnamate, oxybenzone (benzophenone-3), octyl-dimethyl-PABA and octinoxate, possess endocrine activity. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that interfere with endogenous hormone action and/or production. These have been implicated in the development of a number of diseases in both males and females, including cancer of the mammary glands and reproductive organs, as well as the abnormal development of the male reproductive system. 


Rosy Outlook is a beautiful nude, my lips but better shade :) It's super pretty and perfect for day to day life. It doesn't have any particular scent which I like.



They also engraved Mark in the actual bullet of the lipstick, which is a nice touch I have to say. It looks really nice.


This shade is very pigmented and it does last longer than the Mark liquid lipsticks for example. You will still need to carry your lipstick with you though because it's not going to last you the full day. It lasted on me for a few hours, without eating or drinking of course.


To conclude, Avon really surprised me coming out with the line of lipsticks as bold as this one, since it includes even blues. I find the lipstick better than the Mark liquid ones, and that's really nice. The ingredient list however does scare me a bit, since the sunscreen is on the second place with a safety level of 6 on cosdna. 

Hope you enjoyed, and if you try any let me know :)

Best,
Katja
