Empties #32

Heyy :)

I gathered quite a few empty products so I decided it's time to make a blog post, so I can throw them away finally :P

Let's jump into it :)

Old Spice Kilimanjaro Deodorant Spray - my boyfriend used this one and he enjoyed it. I also liked the scent ;)

Repurchase: Maybe if it's on sale.

Alpstories Damask Rose Floral Water - I didn't like the scent at all, I guess I don't like rose scented cosmetic products, it almost made me sick a little bit. However I did like it as a face spray, but the pump unfortunately broke and I can't use it anymore.
Repurchase: No.

Avon Senses Citrus Zing Hand Wash - fruit scented hand soap, nothing special about it. I did like the fresh scent.

Repurchase: If on sale, maybe.

Balea After Sun Dusche - by all means my favourite summer shower gel. To me, this one smells like summer in a bottle :D

Repurchase: Definitely.

Balea Rasiergel Frische Kick - love these shaving gels from Balea, I always use them because they're affordable and work great. This one wasn't the exception.

Repurchase: Different scent.

Parodontax Classic Toothpaste - not an empties post if this one isn't included haha ;) Always repurchased if you follow me, you know ;) my favourite toothpaste even though you really have to get used to the taste of it, but it works wonders, trust me I've been having gum problems all my life.

Repurchase: Forever.

Caudalie Vineactive 3 in 1 Moisturizer - I did really like this moisturizer, thanks to LookFantastic, since I got it in my beauty box ;)

Repurchase: Not sure.

Essence "Merry Berry" LE - Hair Fragrance - this was from last year's Essence Christmas limited edition. I loved the scent. It also had gold shimmer in it and I really did enjoy it. Also lasted a fair time on me, which is nice for the price point.

Repurchase: It was unfortunately a limited edition product.

And that's all for this month empties guys :)

Hope you enjoyed! Kisses,

Haul from*

Hey loves :)

Recently I had an opportunity to collaborate with the company called BeautyBigBang. I decided to chose two items for free in exchange for an honest review :)

The first thing I chose is a face cleansing brush since I've been wanting one of these forever.

Unfortunately you don't get any information or how to use instructions in English, but they do have everything you need to know listed on the website. It's also very easy to use. This cleansing brush does need batteries to work, but they're not included so you have to buy them yourself.

You get 5 different brush heads, which I really like. The first brush head that is on the brush already when you get it is for cleansing your face and exfoliating as well. I'm using it all the time to cleanse my face and I really love it. It works amazing plus leaves your skin feeling very soft.

One brush head you get is for peeling massage, one is just a sponge for removing makeup, etc. Love the fact that it's so versatile.

I do really enjoy it and for the price (it retails for 9,99$) it's absolutely amazing. It's currently on sale for 7,99$ and you can get it here -> CLICK.

The second item I chose for myself is a liquid lipstick.

I chose mine in shade 01 Coquelicot, but they're 8 different shades to chose from, also some stunning metallic ones!

It's an orangey matte red lipstick. I like it, but I don't wear red very often. Would I buy it again? This shade no, but metallic ones are gorgeous and I'd love to try at least one!

The applicator is a standard doe foot applicator.

It retails for 7,99$ but it's on sale for 4,99$ currently. You can buy it here -> CLICK.

I have to say I love the cleansing brush the most, it really makes the difference to your face, especially if you have enormous pores like I do. I really feel like it gets in the pores and makes my face look more "clean" and soft to the touch. Also foundation looks prettier on. The delivery takes up to 4 weeks, depending on where you live. They do offer Paypal as a payment method plus free shipping worldwide if you order more than one item :)

I do have a 10% off code for you guys, it's KATJA10, if you want to get even more discount ;)

Hope you enjoyed!

LookFantastic Beauty Box - June

Hello everyone <3

Since I've been extremely busy in June I totally forgot to share with you my LookFantastic beauty box. I decided I'll do it today, because the box for July is already on the way ;) You can see what I got in my May box here -> CLICK.

The June's design of the box was my favourite by far :) The theme was Wanderlust.

Let's start :)

1. Kerastase Shampoo

As one of the leading luxury haircare brands, Kerastase is at the forefront of innovation to deliver beautiful results to your hair. With a huge collection of shampoos, designed to cleanse, condition and protect your locks, which one will you discover in your special beauty box? 

2. Monu Rosewood Reviving Mist

This lightweight facial mist contains a nourishing blend of Lemon, Rosewood and Sandalwood to refresh the skin and revive fatigued complexions in need of a little energy boost. You can even use it to fix your makeup on warm, summer days!

3. Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser

This hydrating face cream is enriched with Neroli Oil, Spruce Knot and Bergamot Oil, to brighten the skin, reduce shine and give the complexion an even and perfected finish. The result is skin that has a naturally beautiful glow.

4. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

Travelling is great for your wanderlust, but not great on your complexion. Keep your skin healthy and glowing with FAB's Radiance pads, which are suitcase friendly thanks to their no-liquid formula. They contain a blend of lactic and glycolic acids, to refresh and  revitalize tired complexions.

5. Hailey Baldwin For ModelCo Super Lips Lipgloss

This hydrating lip gloss gives the most beautiful high-shine finish with the longevity of a long-lasting lipstick. It's luxuriously rich texture melts into the lips to impart a gorgeous pop of colour, leaving behind a super moisturised lip in it's wake.

6. Bellapierre Shimmer Highlighter

This loose shimmer powder is beautiful to use as a higlighter on the cheekbones, the Cupid's bow and on the inner corner of the eyes to highlight and accentuate your features. The iridescent sheen is perfect for all skin tones and will leave you with a gleaming radiance.

These are all the products that were inside my box, I'm totally loving it again! For 20€ including free shipping these boxes have not failed me so far :)
