I have been trying a few new beauty products this summer. I really wanted to share with you guys if they are worth the hype or not. l’Oreal has been everywhere this summer with their commercials, marketing and new product launches. So I just had to try out a few of their new products. I have always been a fan of the brand and I bought all these products with my own money. I’m only a tiny blogger so big brands as l’Oreal don’t even send me products, just to get that off the table 🙂
The first product that has been domination our social media is this Hydra Genius aloe vera water. From the very first pomp on my hand I loved the consistency of this product. It feels like a very liquid gel. And it smells amazing, really fresh. But that is what you expect with aloe vera products, so far so good.
The first couple of times that I used it, I just used it on my bare skin. To be honest it didn’t sink in the way I expected. It felt a bit sticky. But I kept playing around with it. So I found out that when you apply it over your moisturiser you don’t get that sticky feeling. It really does hydrate your skin perfectly.
If you like aloe vera products and you need a new hydration product in your skincare routine, I would give this one a try.
I might not be the best person to review skincare products. But I do know a good mascara! And let me tell you that I was really excited to try out the new Paradise extatic mascara from l’Oreal. Especially because people kept comparing it wit the better than sex mascara from too faced. We all know that baby is golden.
I think I used this mascara only twice when I already ordered a second one. I can’t live without it anymore!. It applies so smoothly and it gives the right amount of length and the perfect amount of volume. I barely know any mascara that does both equally. Also really important, it does last a whole day.
The third product that I have been testing lately is this new foundation. It exists in two colours, which already concerned me because I have a really pale skin. So obviously I bought the lightest one. When I first swatched it on my hand I already noticed that it was still way to dark for me, I gave it a try anyway. When I applied it to my face it wasn’t as dark as I expected. It is a really light, almost none, coverage foundation. It actually just gives your face a warm and healthy glow. So in my humble opinion I wouldn’t really consider it as a foundation. But it does make your skin look healthy and glowy, and who doesn’t like that. I use this foundation on ‘no’-make up days where I could use a little extra glow.
Lots of Love
