Review: Nivea in-shower body milk skin conditioner for dry skin

Excuse the messy packaging. The water messed it up!

Last review i did on the blog was a long time ago but it was about the nivea lip butters. Today I have an other Nivea product to talk about and it's also moisturizing. It is the in-shower body milk skin conditioner for dry skin. Let me tell you something. If you have dry skin and you're in a rush then this is perfect for you. It's really moisturizing and loving for the skin. When I get out of the shower my skin feels well-hydrated after using this. I feel like I need to let it sink in for a minute after drying my body before putting on clothes or else it feels a little sticky but it's not really a problem and won't make me dislike the product at all.
This bottle is my second one but I don't use it that often, only when i'm in a hurry.

Review: Nivea lip butter

As you can see on the pictures, then I have two of the, ever so hyped up lip butters from Nivea. I have the scents Vanilla & macadamia and the caramel cream. The caramel cream I keep in my purse all the time (which you can see on the beaten up lid) and the vanilla & macadamia I keep with my skin care selection.
Now you all know that I am really dedicated to my Nuxe reve de miel lip balm but for a lighter lipcare i use these. I'm still not a massive fan of pots, even though I've got lots of them, but these really are great and lovely. As I said these gives a lighter lip care, with which I think the butter part of the name is a little so on. It's nothing compared to my Nuxe balm but it might be heavy for people with regular, non-chapped lips. I like these on a daily basis, alone or even on top of a lipstick to give a little extra moist.

I really recommend these, just don't expect them to be miracle workers.
And enjoy the scent. It's really the best thing about them. SO yummy!

An other MAC haul..

From the left: Soba and sumptuous olive

So, a long time ago I got two more eyeshadows for my MAC palette. It's not like I need any more BUT they look amazing in the palette and I love them lots already.

The first one I choose was the color Soba. Soba is a neutral golden one and it's just a really pretty everyday one. It's nothing special, out of the ordinary but i'm happy that i got it!

The other one, sumptuous olive, is definitely out of the ordinary and out of my comfort zone. To make myself experiment more, I convinced myself to get it and i'm very happy that i did. It's a olive-green, sheeny color that reminds me of old ancient stuff. Not the best description but it really is very beautiful.

Batiste dry shampoo

My little 'collection' of batiste dry shampoo's at the moment.

So the Batiste dry shampoo might not be a new thing for anyone out there. It's a cult favorite and everyone and their mother loves this stuff. Now that's not gonna keep me from telling you my thoughts on it if there is still some left that haven't tried this. The dry shampoo from batiste is the most inexpensive and lovely way to get that greasy second day hair looking newly washed. It's very powdery and you need to remember to always shake the bottle before using it. The powdery product is guilty of leaving a bit of white residue if you don't work it in enough but with blonde hair i don't really mind that. Especially considering the price.
Batiste don't just make your hair look good but also smell good. I have a few different scents in mini's to try but my all time favorite so far is the one called blush. It's a floral and fresh scent that smells clean and really nice and girly. I absolutely love it and i couldn't live without it... Okay that might be a little too dramatic but it really is THAT good. The only downside to dry shampoo's in general is if you have a bit of a flaky scalp or dandruff, then it might be drying on your scalp so just watch out for that. But even though my dandruff is cray-cray then it doesn't get extremely crazy with dry shampoo.

I would really recommend this to anyone. Even darkhaired gals (or guys), it just need a bit more work.
Have any of you tried this? And do you like it just as much as me?

Review: The body shop shampoo

So i'm not gonna lie....... I've only used this product about five times. And normally I won't review a product unless it's been used for a while. But if something does miracles then you can't deny it. 
The deal is that when the cold weather hit Denmark, my scalp went cray-cray and i've never tried anything like it. I have never suffered from dandruff but i had the WORST case and because it was so itchy, my scalp started to flake of and bleed. I know that sounds gross but it's the truth. So, I needed a anti-dandruff shampoo to make some miracles for me and after about an hour of searching the internet for a not to expensive solution I found out that the one from the body shop had some really great reviews. Long story short i went out to buy it and after having used this twice i don't have any dandruff left. I think it's so cray and amazing and i need to forward the amazingness of this product to anyone that might need it!
Only downside about this product is that I don't love the smell, but that's peanuts compared to how amazing it is. Go get it, if you need some love for the scalp that's falling off your head!
