My Skincare Wish List (continued)

I felt it became a bit of a too long blog post, so decided to separate it over two. Now I can ramble on a bit longer about the products haha. I promise, won't be too long! ;-)

So on to the products. If you didn't recognize the products from the image, don't worry I have named them and described each of them briefly.

Bioderma 'Sensibio H2O' - €15
Super raved about, I know, but that's what gotten me interested. For those that do not know (which I doubt), it's a super gentle makeup cleanser for the sensitive/dry/normal skin type. Alcohol free, fragrance free and without phenoxyethanol (whatever that is).  

Origins 'Drink Up Intense Overnight Mask' - €26,50 
A few of my favorite bloggers (Lily and Vivianna) have raved about this mask, and gotten me curious about it. It says to moisture your skin overnight and leaves it glowy and moist in the morning after. 

Caudalie 'Beauty Elixir' - €13
I'm sure everyone has heard of this product, unless you've been living under a stone for the past few years. No seriously, this is one of the most raved skincare item, ever I think. Especially since Vicki B. tweeted about it. No description needed I think.

Alpha-H 'Liquid Gold' - €42
This is quite a splurge item for me, but I have only heard great things about it. It's a kind of peel that will help "vanish" hyper pigmentation and also for fine lines, enlarged pores, some even say it helped clearing their acne! Mostly raved about by Ruth (from AMR).

Kiehl's 'Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution' - €45
Kiehl's promises that it's a fast-acting serum that evens skin tone and diminishes dark spots to impart overall radiance and luminosity to the skin. That honestly sounds amazing to me, and to top that off. It doesn't contain any silicones, parabens, it's colorants, fragrance and optical diffusers free. Hello, can it get any better? I thought so. I am planning to get a sample of this product first, and if it doesn't really work I'll get the Liquid Gold.

Kiehl's 'Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion' - €45
As I had a few micro-dermabraision treatments a while ago, I wanted to continue with it as I saw minor improvements. I stopped the salon treatments as they were €90 an hour and my insurance company just covered 2 treatments. It also says to help with enlarged pores (to make them smaller I mean ;-).

Origins 'Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask' - €26,50
I have heard and read many good things about this mask. It promises to clear pores and acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, and Lecithin dissolves impurities. Sounds promising doesn't it? 

REN 'ClearCalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask' - €36
I've used this mask a before (a few years back) and it's helped my skin calm down a lot. When I had blemishes, I just put this mask on and the next morning it would be less red and inflamed. Have used Queen Helene's Mint Julep mask, but that one doesn't do a thing for my skin at all.  

Kérastase 'Crystalliste Lait Cristal Luminous Perfecting Conditioner' - €18,50
Is a conditioner for those with dry ends, and will leave it silky and smooth after its use. Crystalliste is a product line designed specifically for young women with long hair, prone to weighed down roots and dry ends.

Liz Earle 'Cleanse & Polish' - €17
If you read British beauty blogs/magazines and watch British gurus on Youtube, I'm sure you've heard of this cleanser a million times! As it comes in a 100ml pump and with two muslin cloths it seems to me it's worth to try it out. 

Kérastase 'Specifique Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo' - €18
It's marketed as a shampoo for oily roots and dry/sensitive ends, which perfectly describes my hair. It promises to leave the scalp fresh and re-oxygentated (no clue what that is supposed to mean) and lets your hair feel clean, nourished and beautiful.

As you might have noticed, there are some products that have more or less the same purpose. The reason for that is because I just want to try out some products, and see which one works the best for me. And sorry that the blog post became a bit longer than it was planned to be, apologies! I do hope it helped you in a way to orientate on skincare.  

Have you tried any of these products, and have they 'helped' your skin in a way?



  1. I have the Origins Face Mask and it's amazing! really love it, great post :)


    1. Will definitely give it a go then, thank you!(: x

  2. I really want to try Liz Earl's Cleans and Polish :) xx

  3. I have tried the Origins Drink Up Intensive but it didn't really work for me. It gave me whiteheads and didn't feel that hydrating. But I have the charcoal mask, which I really like! :)

    1. Yikes! Hmm, will definitely try and get a sample first then, thanks for telling me! And the charcoal mask definitely seems nice, and it can be used as scrub as well right? x

    2. I don't if it can be used as a sbrub (well everything can be used as a scrub if you add sugar ;P) because it doesn't contain any grains or something like that..

      I have liquid gold which is amazing. I have used for 3 weeks i think - 2-3 times a week and I can definitely see changes in my skin! It's pricey but soooo worth the money!

      I just added the Ren mask to my list of products to get a samples of! It sounds really nice.

    3. The REN mask is very nice indeed, and definitely worth the splurge! I got a sample of Kiehl's Corrective Concentrate so will be testing that out for a week or two. If it doesn't work I'll definitely try the Liquid Gold! : ) x

  4. I tried Bioderma 'Sensibio H2O' before, though it looks like water, its amazing and works wonder!

  5. I also like Bioderma.

    I wonder if you would like to follow each other : ).


    Happy blogging.

  6. I love buying skincare. Bioderma is amazing! x

  7. As a French girl living in Amsterdam I would love to know where to buy the Solution Micellaire from Bioderma!
    It's my ultimate favorite! Add on top the Lait-Crème from Embryolisse and my sensitive skin is radiant!

    1. Hi Juicy, unfortunately there is no actual store that sells Bioderma (not that I know of). But you can order it online though via newpharma.be and farmaline.nl! As for Embryolisse, you can get it here: http://embryolisse-shop.nl/. Hope it helped! x
