Nivea surprises me a lot with
Nivea surprises me a lot with their products and as I've enjoyed them so far these two are a small disappointment. Nivea Fresh Revive Blonde Dry Shampoo The first product has probably the most creative design I've ever seen and I was expecting a lot from it because it contains Rice Starch which I've never seen before in a dry shampoo. Nivea did a thing that you can get different shampoo colour for different hair colour, my hair is more on a blonde side. And yes, it helps my roots to be less visible - it makes them pale, maybe it's not ideal blonde but for sure my roots are lighter and you can't really see that I use dry shampoo but my scalp doesn't like it, I could scratch my scalp all the time when I use it. The smell isn't bad but that's not enough for me and I feel disappointed with what I can feel on my scalp. Nivea Oil in Lotion Orange Blossom & Avocado Oil This one smells so good and I'm aware that lots of people choose this Oil in Lotion body moisturizer. I can't deny, it absorbs quickly but because it contains alcohol it makes my skin dry as well. It's an ideal summer moisturizer but not for a person with dry skin, just stick to mix it creams from Nivea or a classic cream if you've got a dry skin.

Sheet masks or wash-off masks?
Sheet masks or wash-off masks? I like both but the Wash Off masks from Althea are probably my new addiction! I'm so happy to be one of Althea Angels and share with you these new masks made in collaboration between Althea and Get It Beauty. If you don't know Get It Beauty is a show all about beauty, I can't even tell you how much time I've spent searching for episodes of Get It Beauty with translation and writing down some useful information. I have to admit that not only the texture but also the scent surprised me.

Calamansi or Calamondin might
Calamansi or Calamondin might not be my favourite because it's not a fruit which you can normally see in Europe but I have to admit I like sour fruits and I even eat raw lime from time to time. My genes are weird since I'm not the best with salty and fatty food, but sour, spicy or sweet? But nevermind the food, Calamansi is told to fade acne scars, does it really do that? It's too early to say that but this mask totally saved my skin during the heatwave - I put it overnight into the fridge and then use it straight from the fridge. It didn't break me out and I never felt so relaxed. The mask has a yellow colour and the fit is really good. I will totally buy more of them when I'm out of my sheet masks.

Do you like Centella? I litera
Do you like Centella? I literally love this ingredient so when I got a package from Neogen I knew that I'll need some time to test the product and give you the most honest review I can make. Why are these products so unique? The whole Real Cica line from Neogen contains Cica ingredients such as Centella Asiatica Extract, Asiaticoside, Madecassoside, Madecassic Acid and Asiatic Acid. But you can also find here ceramides or Hyaluronic Acid. Neogen Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil - I really enjoy this product since it works on my sensitive skin and it removes makeup well (just to let you know, I always pre-cleanse my makeup with micellar water). I cannot really smell any scent in it and face massage while cleansing is not a problem when you use this product. Neogen Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam - unfortunately, I have no pH strips to test the pH but Neogen claims that pH of this product is around 5,5 - 6,5. I can believe that since I had no acne attack after using this foam - something that usually happens to me when pH of the cleanser is above 6/7. Usually, acne-prone skin prefers slightly acidic pH of the cleanser so if your skin freaks out - try to check your cleanser first. The foam contains Polyhydroxy Acid and Lactobionic Acid - both can be called PHA's, very delicate exfoliators. I can smell so citrus in this product but my sensitive skin goes along with this product. Where to get both products? You can get both products on sokoglam the price is really good for such products, I use them for over a month now and I used probably less than 1/4 of the packaging in each bottle .

Do you like ginseng? I like th
Do you like ginseng? I like the scent of a ginseng a lot, so when I got a package from blingdear_official and I saw Missha 3D Red Ginseng Sheet Mask I was happy that I'll be able to try it. It took me some time because I'm the worst if it comes to sheet masking but I can share the review and all I can tell you is that at first, I thought that someone sew this mask wrong but it turned out it's not a mistake - Missha has decided to make a 3D mask which should stick to the face better but it doesn't. The scent is amazing and even if I like ginseng due to the bad fit of this mask I can't tell that I like it or I'll repurchase it. It's a nice product to try on your own but if you really want to try then go for Missha Pure Source Cell Sheet Mask with Red Ginseng.

­čî┐LeeGeeHaam Grow Hyal B5 Tone
­čî┐LeeGeeHaam Grow Hyal B5 Toner This product was the strangest one for me because it smells to me like a nutmeg and cardamon and it does contain nutmeg and cardamom oils. The main ingredient here is Provitamin B5 (Panthenol) which is a good moisturizer and it's accompanied by Niacinamide (B5) and Centella Asiatica Extract. The whole formula is not bad, the toner is quite thick - like other Korean toners I've tried but also very moisturizing. This formula didn't make my acne worse or didn't make my skin sensitive, even better - my skin is calmed now. Only the scent is a bit annoying at first but it's easy to get used to especially when you can't smell the scent when the product is on your face. Is this a product worth a try? Yes, I like this toner because it'll stay with you for a good couple of months and a small amount of it is enough to cover the entire face. ­čî┐LeeGeeHaam Vita Propolis Ampoule I made a post about this ampoule before in an old design version and does anything has changed from that time? No, this is and I feel like it forever will be my favourite ampoule. Why? It makes my acne less irritating - I got less acne when I use it even during the period when I usually get lots of acne. It's a small ampoule but it's made in 50% out of propolis, the rest are ingredients that can help with acne like Witch Hazel Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract or Licorice. You can even find adenosine here. Is it worth a try? Totally, you just have to try it! I swear, it can change your life. ­čî┐LeeGeeHaam Grow Matcha Clay Mask This is the product I wanted to try the most because I like a good clay mask and I like matcha/green tea. This mask is pure perfection. Why? It's not a mask that makes your skin super dry, it cleans your skin well and removes all the sebum well, leaving your skin moist and happy. The scent is very delicate I almost can't feel it and the formula itself has matcha tea quite high on the ingredient list. It can be really helpful for acne prone skin and if you deal with pores just like me. Overall feelings: Is this trio worth a try? Totally! Not only with Oily or Combo skin but in general I think that LeeGeeHaam makes really good products which are worth a try and I'm sure I won't end up my skincare journey with this brand on this trio. I feel encouraged to try more products from this brand.
