Deauty box of February!

Hi my lovely and beautiful followers,

This will be my last Deauty box review! Since they want to increase the price of the box and ask 2€ in additional for the shipping I decided to cancel my membership. A bit sad, I might have paid the new price but I don't wanna pay for shipping when it used to be for free. And sometimes you have to stant by your principles.

So this month I got 6 products, one full size only.


Menu of February

Kérastase - Ciment Thermique (50 ml)

"In winter, our hair faces many attacks. The contrast between the cold spice to the exterior and the hot dry air inside makes them fragile and without spring. Extra attention won't hurt them. For this, we always come back to Kérastase Ciment Thermique, a bestseller. The 'Vita-Topseal' repairs the surface of the keratin layer and surrounds the hair fiber with a protective envelope. Apply to washed hair and distribute evenly. Do not rinse. Full size: 150 ml & price: 26,50 €."

Since I got the box just before I wanted to shower, I already tried this product and I must say my hair felt really great after. There is a scent of lemon to it but after you dry them it most of it get lost.

Kérastase - Bain Force Architecte Shampoo (80 ml)


"We love Kérastase products, it's clear. This shampoo restructuring based on Cylane Cement Complex repairs the hair fiber depth and surface. A deep treatment for brittle or damaged hair. This energizing shampoo also protects hair from external factors such as the icy wind or a heavy downpour and treats split ends. Full size: 250 ml & price: 19,90 €."

Same for this product as for the other Kérastase product, I already tried it once and my hair was pretty good after. It was easier to comb my hair and they were slightly straighter than usual. ^^ 

Le Couvent des Minimes - Eau des Missions 'Botanical Fragrance' (30 ml) 

"This cologne Couvent des Minimes, is pure nostalgia. It's fragrance is a tribute to the Missionaries of Mary who, for a long time, committed to human causes around the world, from India to South America. Passion for botany, they studied the benefits of plants. This mixture of the world does not leave you indifferent. This water scent combines citrus three and seven plants, selected because of their beneficial properties. Tip: put a drop of it on your sheets and fly to the sweet world of dreams ... Full size: 100 ml & price: 26,00 €."

Ohhh, I can't wait to try this on my sheets. It smells really really amazing!!!!

Weleda - nourishing body lotion with Seabuckthorn
(10 ml)

"The word evokes rather buckthorn than something pungent, unpleasant, but very quickly we were surprised by this powerful plant. The flesh and seeds of berries indeed contain an oil rich in antioxidant vitamins. This oil supports the natural regeneration of the skin and protects it from drying out our battered by winter skin. This body lotion is especially pleasant in the winter for sunny citrus scent awakens memories of warm summer evenings.  Full size: 100 ml & 15,50 €."

Hmmm this is the kind of citrus scent I don't like, smells bitter. We'll see....

Weleda - Regenerative hand cream with pomegranate

"The Greeks and Egyptians already knew: the grenade is a concentrate of vitality and full of vitamins and antioxidants that help improve the health and beauty. Weleda has developed, in collaboration with POM Wonderful, this hand cream environmentally responsible that fights skin aging, prevents the formation of pigmented spots and treats intensively. Give yourself a little more often hand massage because this exotic aroma is absolutely soothing. Full size : 50 ml & price: 8,99 €."

Love the scent of pomegranate! Only tried it once on my hands. I'll keep you updated.

Arkopharma - Forcapil (full size)

"It is not always easy to maintain a healthy lifestyle and occasionally, balanced meals take a hit. So complete your meal aves food supplements Forcapil. What does this have to do with beauty? we will tell you. Well, the formula containing zinc, vitamins and minerals, Forcapil stimulates the production of keratin, a protein that gives spring and shine to hair and makes stronger nails while stimulating their growth. Beautiful from head to toe, then! Full size: 60 capsules & price: 13,00 €."

Awwwww this is pretty cool. Never in my life would I have guessed that I would receive a product like that in a beauty box. ^^ This is my favorite product from this month's box!!! I once took similar pills and they really helped, unfortunately I find them a bit pricey to take them non stop. Thank you Deauty team for this amazing opportunity! The only thing that's not so great is that they smell terrible and probably won't taste any better either. But I already went through that once or twice and I can't wait for the result.

Final thoughts: I'm pretty satisfied with THIS box. I feel a bit sorry that it's my last box but who knows maybe I decide to continue getting them... (to be continued?)

Thanks for stopping by!

LUSH Rosa Lisa/Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

Hiiii my lovely readers,

Just a short blogspot to tell you how much I've fallen in love with the LUSH Rosa Lisa body conditioner. 

Lamiya Slimani aka the Dorient mentioned this product in her January's must-have video on youtube and said it was like the new Nivea body douch milk/lotion.
I tried both versions from Nivea, have a look at >>> this blogspot <<< and since she said it was even better I had to go to the store and try it at least out. And so I did that and the really nice lady from the store made me try it on my hands and they were from one second to the other so soft that I couldn't believe my eyes, it felt like I used a magic potion on my hands. Since I lately always have dry hands no matter how often I put cream on them I decided to buy this conditioner and use it for my hands and sometimes on my body when I feel like it.

You really just need a bit of product to get an awesome effect and since this product is pretty expensive in my eyes, it costs about 32€ as far as I remember, it can pay off after all. The smell of it is nice, I'm not an expert in fragrances but this really doesn't stink at all for a VEGAN product.

I think in other countries you can find this under another name, Ro's Argan Body Conditioner but this is the one and the same product.

So this is basically for those people that find the Nivea body douch milk/lotion not effective enought and are looking for something with a bigger influence. I would only suggest you this condition if you REALLY have DRY skin.

I'm looking forward to try more LUSH products (if only they weren't so expensive xD) and review them for you! ^^

Have a nice week,

LORAC PRO palette + swatches!

Hiiiii everyone,

First of all, excuse me if you were expecting a post the last 2 weeks. Funny story! The day I was planning on writing a new post (actually this one) the charger of my macbook died and it took me one week until I got my new one delievered and then I didn't find any time the last 3-4 days on doing this post but today I'm pretty motivated and I took some time to finally get this done ^^

I wanted to show you my LORAC PRO eyeshadow palette and swatched it for you guys ;)

My wonderful friend Kelly send me this amazing palette from the USA, unfortunately the mirror was smashed when I opened the box but luckily all the colors were save.


The Lorac Pro palette has 16, yes SIXTEEN eyeshadows! Half of the shades (upper line) are matte and the other half  (lower line) are shimmery. It comes with a little Behind the Scenes Eye Primer tube. The eyeshadows have a very nice pigmentation and you can wear them wet or dry. The palette has soft and smooth textures, and the colors are quite neutral. ($42.00 for 16 x 0.02 oz.; 1 x 0.19 oz.) 

Descriebed by Lorac: "Go PRO with the LORAC PRO Palette! Created by celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw, this PRO artistry palette is packed with 8 Shimmer and 8 Matte Eye Shadows in all the shades you need to create the hottest looks straight from the Red Carpet. LORAC’S velvety-smooth shadows are infused with soothing botanicals and are ultra-pigmented to perform wet or dry so you can shade, shadow, line and define your eyes, just like a PRO."



White (= crisp, powdery texture, great as highlighter)
Cream (= pale beige)
Taupe (= warm toned, medium dark brown)
Light Pink (= well light pink lol, powder texture)
Mauve (= pink-plum, a bit powdery)
Sable (= dark taupe)
Espresso (= very dark brown)
Black (= medium dark black)

Nude (= shimmery pale beige, close to Champage)
Champagne (= rose tinted, close to Nude)
Gold (= rich metallic medium dark copper, not exactly gold)
Light Bronze (= warm toned peach)
Pewter (= medium dark shimmery brown)
Garnet (= redish-brown copper)
Deep Purple (= blackened warm purple)
Slate (= charcoal gray with flecks of teal micro-shimmer)

My favorite colors from this palette are Taupe, Light Pink, Mauve, Espresso, Champagne, Gold, Light Bronze, Garnet and Deep Purple. LOL I know that are half the colors but I would have also got it if it only contained those 8 ^^

The price is very raisonable for the 16 eyeshadows you get. I would say they are as equal as my Urban Decay shades. The case is so easy to carry and you can do almost any look you want. 8 shimmers and 8 Mattes is such a great idea. This is a great palette for the price and I am excited to try more looks and do some posts for you ;)


Nice to be back in the blogger world
