Beauty product of the day: Llongueras Instant Beauty Serum Todo en 1

When it comes to hair, the task of finding the right beauty product isn’t an easy one. I was looking for a product that will bring out the color and shine, make them soft and at the same time won’t increase their weight and make them sticky or loose the volume.

I was beyond happy when I came across Instant Beauty Serum by Llongueras. It is very light, makes my hair silky and soft and in few seconds my hair looks like I just went out from hair salon.

Give it a try and I’m sure you will enjoy the results!

I have tried so many eye make-up removers that it’s difficult to count them all. Maybe I expect too much from the make-up remover, but basically:

a) I want something that is not greasy or irritate my eyes

b) I want all my eye lashes to stay at their place and not fall out

I don’t think that my expectations are unrealistic, yet I wasn’t lucky to encounter a product that would pass both conditions even though I have tried so many brands from drug stores to high-end.

However, eye make-up remover from Сто рецептов красоты seems to do ok. It certainly passed the first condition, it doesn’t contain oil, is very gentle and if, by accident, few drops end up in my eyes, it doesn’t have itchy effect. Feels like water. It’s active ingredients include green tea, aloe and cucumber extracts. I certainly have less fallen eye lashes compared to a lot of other products I used, but still result is not perfect. This is going to do for now, but I’m going to continue my quest for the perfect eye make-up remover.

I have to say Russian cosmetic brands surprised me with the quality of their products, some of them are so much better than their pricey western alternatives.

*Tip: It’s always useful to read the instructions on the bottle. You might think why would I need instructions to remove make-up, it’s so simple, you just wipe it off with the cotton pad. However, instructions suggest to hold the wet pad on the eye lid for 20 seconds and then to wipe it off. I noticed that it’s easier to remove the thick layers of mascara that way.

If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments below.

Have a great day!

Glossfinity by MaxFactor

Another product by MaxFactor that I recently tried and adore is Glossfinity nail polish in Opal color. It says on the bottle: “glossy nails for up to 7 days”. It stayed for almost 3 weeks! Quite amazing! The color is very neutral and goes well with any make-u  p and clothes.

MaxFactor Xperience Foundation


I love to try out new cosmetic products every time and this time it was the turn of MaxFactor Xperience Foundation. I chose Fair Sugar Cane 55.

I like the packaging. It’s simple, easy to hold and small enough to fit into any cosmetic bag, while holding 30 ml of this foundation. The nozzle is made that way that it doesn’t spill too much foundation, just what needed. The packaging says: “Luxurious flawless coverage with a weightless feel. Suitable for sensitive skin. Won’t clog pores. Oil free.” The texture of the foundation is very creamy. At first, I thought that it might be too “heavy”. Actually, I was pleasantly surprised, with quite opposite. Foundation perfectly blended into skin, gave nice coverage over the red spots and gave a nice tone to the skin. It actually made my skin looked tan like, but more like ‘sun-kissed’, not too dark and doesn’t look different from the neck color, because it’s just terrible when the face tone is much darker than the rest of your skin. After a few minutes after applying, foundation blends into the skin fully and skin feels very silky and no-makeup like. Another advantage is that it is quite easily removed with the make-up remover. The foundation I used before by Dior took ages to remove.

I’m usually not a fan of drug-store brands. I’ve been using Dior for a long time, but I have to admit I love this foundation so far and I actually like it more than more expensive brand’s foundations I used.
