Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam Review

Arkana is a polish brand I’ve been really enjoying for skincare and I tried the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam, so here’s my full review after trying this cleanser foam for a couple os months.

I must confess that the first time I saw this product almost a year ago on the Cosmoprof, I thought that “cannabis” was quite a new thing as an ingredient, then I’ve noticed over the last months a lot of brands launching products using it on their formulation, and it became a trend on skincare lately.

Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam

The Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam contains Hemp (a variety of the cannabis sativa plant) + Poppy oil. The cannabis sativa oil is antioxidant, a super moisturiser, it has calming properties, provides deep hydration and revitalisation for the skin. Therefore, it’s a great ingredient to be part of a skincare product.

So now back to the review of this cleanser foam that I’ve been really liking.

 

• Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam (200ml) Review:

Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam Review

I’m a big fan of foam products to use as a face cleanser, they are my favourite kind of product for washing my face morning and night. So I was happy to try this one.

I’ve been using the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam over the last months both morning and night, so I could really try and put it to the test. This is a face and body foam, but I’ve been mainly using it on my face, since it is recommended for dysfunctional and irritated skin and face skin is always more sensible.

This product is really gentle and it didn’t cause any irritation on my skin (which is quite sensible) and I also felt it didn’t leave any weird sensation (like those products that make your skin dry and you can feel it after removing the product), it actually leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, even using it twice a day.

 

Arkana Cannabis clean foam

Since I love wearing makeup, my skincare routine is really important and the cleaning and washing steps are always very important for my routine. I usually use a makeup remover and then a facial cleanser to wash my face with, but the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam claims to remove the makeup too, so, of course, I put it to the test!

And I was so surprised! I actually just decided to try it today, before writing the review (no idea why I haven’t tried it before this way🙈), and I was so surprised how well it removed my makeup: full face (foundation, highlighter, powder, eyeshadow and even my mascara). I washed my face with it, then I did a little test: with a cotton embedded with makeup remover, I checked how my skin was and the cotton went out clean! I can’t believe why I wasn’t just using it before.

Therefore, the final veridic is that I really like this foam cleanser by Arkana: it cleans well, removes makeup and doesn’t leave the skin dry.

Esqido Gel Eyeliner Review

If there’s a makeup item that I love is a good eyeliner, I hardly ever leave the house without some eyeliner and today I’m reviewing the Esqido Gel Eyeliner.

Esqido gel eyeliner: Review

I”ve met the brand Esqido a while ago, I had reviewed a pair of false eyelashes from the brand a couple of months ago,  and then they launched a new product, a gel eyeliner that is available in two colours: black and brown. I’ve been trying it over the last weeks and I must start saying that I LOVED the black one!

But let’s get into the details:

 

• Esqido Gel Eyeliner Review:

Esqido gel eyeliner review

 

Both colours are in form of an eyeliner pencil and they are very pigmented on the skin and they both have a great duration on the skin. Even when I washed my hands, the lines stayed still strong on my skin.

They also apply very easily to the skin with a soft texture.

Esqido Gel Eyeliner: Black and Brown

 

The black eyeliner was my favorite between the two gel eyeliners from Esqido, it is very pigmented and the colour isn’t just strong by itself (like when I applied on my hand with no makeup under it), but it’s also very strong on the eyes applied with eyeshadows under it.

You can check on my photo and on its detail that the black eyeliner is very strong and it shows really well over the makeup, applying it only once is already sufficient for a dark and strong colour (I love it!):

Esqido black gel eyeliner review

This black liner had a great duration on my skin, staying on place and strong during the whole day.

 

Esqido gel eyeliner review

Now on to the Esqido brown eyeliner, it also shows a very strong color when applied directly to the skin but when I applied over the makeup, the color wasn’t as strong as it was directly on the skin. This is something that happens with most of my brown eyeliner pencils, so I decided to try to make it work and this is what I found:

If I apply this brown eyeliner pencil before starting the eye makeup, meaning before your eyeshadows, then I go with the shadows as usual even over the liner, and to finish I apply the brown eyeliner again. It’s been working much better than just doing the eye makeup and only after applying the liner, I found it looks stronger this way than if I just apply it later (even when I apply it more than one time after the eyeshadows).

 

Therefore, I’m loving the Esqido black gel eyeliner and I’m using a lot on daily and night makeups! And I also made the brown liner work, making it stronger than most liners I have tired before

Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion: Review

I love bath products especially if it’s an in-shower body lotion and this is a review of the Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion skin conditioner for bath. What a big name. But it is nothing more than that super practical product that is a body lotion to be used during the bath.

Hidratante de banho Eucerin (Resenha)

Yes, the name on the product is in Portuguese because I’ve received in Brazil

I find this type of product to be so practical and also very useful, especially in winter, when it gets colder and you can get really lazy with your skin care after the shower, so the good news is that it is a body moisturizer that you apply while you’re in the shower. So, there are no excuses for not applying a moisturizer, you can’t say that it was too cold or it was too much effort, it’s so practical and that’s why I love this kind of product!

I’ve already did other reviews of products from Eucerin here on the blog and I really like the products from this brand and this moisturizer in-shower was not different, so I can already tell you that I’m loving it!

 

Body lotion: Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion skin conditioner for bath (400ml) – Review

Hidratante corporal Eucerin banho

Starting this review of Eucerin In-Shower Moisturizing Body Lotion for bath (sensitive skin), it is a moisturizer to be applied during your shower, after cleansing the skin. That is, it is a product created specifically for sensitive skin that promises to strengthen the skin’s natural defenses and provide immediate hydration (and everything while you’re still inside of the shower).

An important detail is that after applying this body lotion, you need to rinse it (this would be the only difference between a normal body moisturizer and this one, if the traditional one you apply and leave the product on the skin, but the shower version need to be rinsed after it).

The body moisturizer for bath from Eucerin has 5% Dexpanthenol, but what is it and what is its function?

Dexpanthenol is used in some cosmetics, including some very famous ones, to moisturize the skin (remember Bepantol or see any similarities between the two words? Dexpanthenol is used in it too). What this powerful ingredient does is reduce the loss of skin water, so it prevents dryness and/or peeling of our skin, being a great ingredient in products with hydration function. Because it leaves the skin more hydrated and smoother.

Textura do Eucerin Hidratante para banho

In addition, this body moisturizer Eurcerin In-Shower Body Lotion for Bath is unscented, without dyes and is free of parabens.

The texture of the product is very similar to a traditional moisturizing lotion, it is super easy to apply on the skin during your shower and shortly after when you rinse it from the body, you can already notice that the skin is smoother and smoother.

As it has the function of a body moisturizer, after using this product in your shower, you don’t need to apply another traditional moisturizer, as it has the same function. It can be used daily, as well as other type of moisturizer for the body.

For its practicality, I love body lotions that are in-shower and I really liked this one from Eucerin, it does not have perfume (which is good point for me) and leaves the skin smooth and hydrated.

Where to buy it? Find it here for U$ 7.66.

Esqido false eyelashes: Review

Who doesn’t love a pair of false eyelashes? I definitely do, since it’s such a great way to “open your eyes” and get instant volume and long lashes in a few seconds.

Being a fan of false eyelashes for such a long time, I love wearing them on specials occasions or even just for going out when going for a more glam look. True is I would wear them everyday if needed.

Anyway, I received a pair of false eyelashes from Esqido for the most voluminous and glam look, the pair is called Nebula lash style and it as voluminous as you can go.

 

• Review of Esqido false eyelashes

Esqido false eyelashes review

Let’s start by the packing that’s so beautiful and glam in white and rose gold! The falsies are of a high quality and the lashes are very beautiful.

I also received their ESQIDO eyelash glue, which I’m loving and using all the time to apply all my fake eyelashes! The applicator is great to get the right amount of glue you need to glue your eyelashes in place and it also dries very quickly, so you can apply your falsies in a clean and mess-free way!

 

Now back to my pair of lashes, Nebula false eyelashes are very black and full of volume, it’s definitely not a natural pair, it’s the one you should pick for a full glam makeup look.

And here’s the difference between a no eyelashes makeup and a makeup with the Nebula Esqido false eyelashes with a before and after photo:

Overall as a Esqido false eyelashes review, I really liked the quality of the lashes, they are really well done and beautiful. The glue is also great, it’s easy to apply and it holds the lashes on place.

They also arrived very well packed, which is so important when shopping online.

Prismologie: Shower Gel Bergamot & Citrine (Review)

I love bath products, especially the shower gel kind and with a more luxurious fragrance and texture, so the Prismologie’s shower gel with Bergamot and Citrine is exactly like this!

With minimalist and colorful packaging, Prismologie products, a British brand I met at the Cosmoprof Bologna last year (a huge beauty fair here in Italy), call a lot of attention not only to their design, but also for their quality.

Prismologie Shower gel - Yellow Day

 

• Prismologie: Yellow Day Shower Gel (Bergamot and citrine)

Prismologie Shower Gel: bergamot & citrine

I’m not a big fan of products with strong fragrances, but at the shower, I like a shower gel with a good fragrance, it doesn’t need to leave a strong scent on the skin, but a good smell in the air during the shower.

The fragrances really influence my mood at my shower time and I love products with a nice fragrance and this one with bergamot and citrine from the Prismologie’s Yellow Day line is incredible!

All product lines of the brand have a different color and fragrance and I loved this one! I also tried the pink line, check it out here on my Review of Prismologie’s Hand cream.

 

Prismologie Shower Gel: Bergamot and Citrine

The brand also brings a bit of positivity into our lives, after all, the small details are what make a difference, and this shower gel brings the following text on the packaging: Stand tall. Feel radiant. Spread some sunshine.

This shower gel from Prismologie has a light texture and it’s very pleasant to use during the shower, leaving a delicious fragrance in the bathroom and lightly on the skin.

The skin gets soft and with that velvety touch, but remember that as it’s just a shower gel, it is to clean the skin and does not have the function of a hydrant. Do not forget to use a moisturizer later.

Prismologie Sower Gel Yellow Day (Bergamot & Citrine), U$ 50.

If you also love high-end bath/shower products that bring that different texture, it could be a good choice of shower gel for you to try.

Prismologie is a British brand and you can find it easier in the UK, but you can also find it online, like on the website above.

Combray Facial Oil Review (Complete)

One of my favorite skincare products at this moment is the Combray Facial Oil (a regenerating face oil) which is a facial oil with only two ingredients and it has made my skin AMAZING! It is an antioxidant and multifunction oil.

 

And if you also have oily skin and you were scared just to read the word oil, wait a minute, because I also have oily/combination skin and the product is recommended for all skin types. Yes, I was also afraid of oils at first, but once you find an interesting product, you understand that even oily skins can use oil products, but attention, just apply the right amount to your skin and choose the right product. Anyway, let’s go back to Combray Facial Oil review. (This is a spontaneous review, I really liked the product, it’s not a sponsored blog post).

Óleo Combray: Review

Combray Facial Oil contains only 2 ingredients and it’ss a multifunctional oil, but what does it promise?

It is an anti-aging treatment, which moisturizes the skin, soothes and regenerates it, and protects the softness of the skin.

I should add that I LOVE skincare products, but I had never been so excited about a single product as I am with this one, since I noticed visible improvements on a kind of a bad skin time I went through a while ago, while it was also very cold here in Milan, anyway, I talk more about my experience bellow.

• Combray Facial Oil: my favorite facial oil

Combray Facial Oil: review

Like I wrote above, the Facial Oil from Combray has several functions and properties in one single product.

You probably noticed in this last photo that the bottle is almost halfway through, so I really try a skincare product for a long time, because generally cosmetics are not products that give you immediate results and according to the brand’s information, I read that better results were visible after one month of using the product, by the time I’m writing this full review, I am already using Combray facial oil for almost 3 months every day, twice a day, and I’m really enjoying it.

Combray Facial Oil is rich in antioxidants and it contains only two (magic) ingredients: grape seed oil and another one called Oxofulleram, which is an antioxidant. The product has no other ingredients, preservatives, coloring or perfume and besides it all, the brand is cruelty free!

• Combray Facial Oil: product’s purposes

  • Anti aging
  • Hydration
  • Calming and regenerating the skin
  • Protect skin against oxidation caused by stress, pollution and inflammation

According to the brand’s website, they have clinical studies that demonstrate high product efficacy in reducing the appearance of free radical damage caused by oxidative stress, aging, sun, air pollution and inflammation.

In fact, you already start to see a difference in your skin in the early days, but of course I went deeper into the use of the product and I waited two months to be able to properly see the effects of the product on my skin and be able to actually review it properly.

 

• Combray Óleo Facial: How to use it

Combray Oil Review

The product should be applied after washing your face, I have been using it both in the morning and at night and since it has several functions, I have been trying an almost minimal daily skincare routine: applying a cleanser gel to wash my face, an eye cream and the Combray facial oil.

Just a few drops for the face and neck, the recommended by the brand is: 6 drops, I think I have a small face or not for having a very dry skin, I often apply only 4 or 5 drops and that’s enough to my face. You should apply the product on the face and massage it with your fingertips, so that the product is better absorbed by your skin.

As you can see by the color of the oil in the photos, it has a dark color and the only care is actually massaging the product so it is well absorbed by the skin (it does not get your skin colored or anything) and take care of waiting a little at night and do not apply and lie on a white pillowcase straight after the application. But the brand itself has the instructions on how to apply the product and which are the movements indicated on the package.

 

• Benefits and my experience with Combray Facial Oil:

Combray Facial Oil (Review)
I started using the Combray Facial Oil at a time when it was very cold here in Milan and my skin, that’s actually a bit oily, was dry and even peeling close to the eye area. In fact I was even afraid to try a new product with the skin like that, but since I had met the brand on Cosmoprof last year (a cosmetics beauty fair that’s very respected worldwide), so I thought it was worth the try, since it has purposes like to moisturize and regenerate the skin.

And it was great, it helped my skin recover very well and in the following days and it also helped to keep it beautiful during the very cold days here, applying the product every day, I had no problem at all in my skin getting dry. It was super soft and hydrated all the time, even when I was in Switzerland and we had negative temperatures such as -6˚.C

I felt that in addition to being softer, my skin looks very moisturized and bright, in fact, I find myself in a great skin moment and I believe that the product also played a part on it. I also try to eat very healthy and, of course, that is something that helps to have healthy and beautiful skin. But with regards to the cold weather, I believe Combray Facial Oil has helped a lot in keeping my skin hydrated.

Facial oil Review: Combray

To summarize: I really liked Combray Skincare Facial Oil because the daily application left my skin looking healthy, soft and moisturized even on the very cold winter days. Plus, it’s a multifunction product that makes it easy for anyone who wants more everyday convenience and I also really enjoyed their travel size packaging, I’ve been using it straight on all my last trips.

The Combray brand is from the Netherlands, but Combray Facial Oil is sold and delivered worldwide by the brand’s website and you can get 20% OFF when you buy with the coupon code: MANU20 (the coupon is valid for only one month, so enjoy it while you can). Website: Combray Skincare

Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion (Review)

A good body moisturizer is always important in our body care routine and for those of you who have or are facing a very dry skin, I tried the Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion, an intensive moisturizing lotion with 10% urea and I’ve been loving it!

Eucerin Hidratante Complete repair

I have been really liking Eucerin products for a few years now, since some years ago when I first tried a cleanser for rosacea or reddish skin that I really liked. But returning to this moisturizer review, Eucerin’s Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion is one of those lotions with a more consistent texture and it really moisturize the skin very well, after all, it’s a product to dry skin.

 

• Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion: Review

Eucerin Loção Hidratante Intensiva

The Eucerin Intensive Complete Repair moisturizing Lotion has 10% urea and aquaporin technology, I believe that among the two of them, urea is more famous in general. Urea is a component that can bring the water present inside the blood vessels into the skin cells, meaning that it has a strong hydrating action on our skin and it’s an important ingredient in many body lotions.

But the aquaporin technology was new to me and I went to give it a little research to understand it better. Aquaporins are channels that are on the cell membrane and have the function of driving the water molecules in and out of these structures, as well as blocking the passage of other substances.

Therefore, the use of this technology in cosmetics has the function of activating the production of aquaporins, as a result, they increase irrigation in the skin region and it can improve hydration capacity by up to 50%. That being said, the combination of this technology with urea actually creates a very strong moisturizing product to our skin and the results are visible.

In practice, I found that the intensive moisturizing lotion is really intensive and it’s great for dry skin or for when your skin gets drier during the cold days. After you apply the product, the skin is already soft at the time, of course for long-term results, you need to apply it everyday.

Eucerin Intensive Moisturizing Lotion, U$ 18.06.

On the instructions it says you should apply the product as many times as necessary during the day, as my skin is not usually very dry, but since here in Italy we are in the winter season, my skin ends up getting drier, but still, I applied it only once a day, after a shower. And it was great to my skin.

Another interesting thing about this body moisturizer is that it actually leaves the skin moisturized for long hours, it is not one of those lotions you apply on the skin and shortly after the skin has the same dry texture as before. It actually leaves the skin softer and moisturized for a much longer time.

Dermadoctor K P Duty Body Scrub Review

I tried out the Dermadoctor’s body scrub, the K P Duty Body Scrub, do you know when you use a product and you’re all excited and wondering where it’s been all your life? I have been using this body scrub and it was like that, I am loving the product and considering it to be the best body scrub I have ever tried!

Dermadoctor Body Scrub K P Duty

 

I got to know the brand Dermadoctor during the Cosmoprof, it’s an American brand, and I have been trying several products of them and I’m really liking all of them! I will publish a video talking more about them and showing the products I’ve been using soon, so I’ll update the post later, but let’s go back to the review of the body scrub I liked so much!

[To see the video about the launches and products that I met in Cosmoprof here in Italy, check out: Cosmoprof 2017.]

 

• K P Duty Body Scrub from DERMAdoctor (review)

Dermadoctor best body scrub ever!

The K P Duty Body Scrub is a chemical and physical body scrub, it does not only perform an exfoliation through the grains in its texture, but it also works by chemical agents in its formula.

Another difference I saw in this exfoliant and that I had not used a product like that before was the way of using it, it says to apply the product on the dry skin before your shower. I used to use only scrubs that you just apply on the wet skin, and this one really made a difference.

The skin gets SUPER soft!

It is very simple to use: you apply it on your dry skin before your shower and massage it gently, then just rinse during your sure and you’re done! Your skin will look and feel super smooth and soft.

 

Body Scrub Dermadoctor

It has a texture in which you feel and can see the little grains, since they are not so small. You should use this body scrub once or twice a week, according to your skin. I usually use this type of product once a week.

Seriously, I felt in love with this product, I love bath/shower products and body scrubs, but this one has gained a special place in my list of favorite products and I’m already feeling like I need to stock it up for it’s finished. [laughs]

Two other important things about it: it’s a product without parabens and the DERMAdoctor brand is cruelty free. Check out the full list of ingredients at the end of this blog post.

Another thing, it is just a body scrub, it’s not suitable for facial use. Never forget your face skin is always very sensitive and you should use only adequate facial products!

 

• Where to buy the Dermadoctor K P Duty Body Scrub scrub?

Well, the brand is american, so if you live in the USA, lucky you, you can probably find it easily over there. If not, don’t worry, I’ve got you too, I have found a few websites that deliver worldwide as well. ;)

Review Hand and Cuticule Cream – Pink O’Clock from Prismologie

Prismologie is one of those brands with a packaging that is a work of art of the minimal design and they also have great quality products. I tried out the Prismologie Hand and Cuticle Cream of the Pink O’Clock line with Rose and Pink Quartz fragrance of Prismologie, which has a delicate floral fragrance.

 

Prismologie Rose Hand and Cuticule Cream

 

• Review of the Pink O’Clock Hand and Cuticule Cream from Prismologie:

Prismologie Pink Hand and Cuticule Cream

I can’t get enough of looking at these beautiful packaging from Prismologie, I love the minimalist design and they look so beautiful and elegant in any bathroom. But let’s go back to the product’s Hand and Cuticule Cream from Pismologie review, it is a hand cream with a delicious fragrance that leaves the hands more soft and moisturized.

The fragrance of this line is ideal for those who like more floral smells, especially the rose fragrance and sweet smells. I love more citrus and fresh fragrances, but this one does not have a very strong sweet smell and I quite liked it.

I found it interesting that this cream is for hands and cuticles, besides using it as a hand cream whenever I see the need to moisturizer my hands, I have also used it to moisturize the cuticles when I’m doing my manicure.

 

It’s been a long time since I’ve been doing my own manicure and I do not remove the cuticles (since it’s healthier to leave them there, but very common to have them removed in Brazil where I was born and raised). I have been using this cream after I remove my nail polish, I push the cuticles very carefully, to make the nails more delicate and more beautiful. By the way, whenever possible, I try to stay one day a week without any nail polish, to let my nails breathe.

The product has a slightly creamier consistency than a lotion but is very light one, that leaves the hands with a good smell its easily absorbed by the skin.

Review: Soft Clean Powder – Arkana Skincare

One brand that I met at Cosmoprof was Arkana, a polish skincare brand that I have been enjoying a lot lately. The Soft Clean Powder from Arkana was my favorite product from this brand, because it’s a facial cleanser that is in powder texture, it’s so cool!

Check my full review on the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana, a skincare product I really liked, you can also watch a video where I show this and other products from this beauty brand.

 

•Soft Clean Powder from Arkana:

Arkana Soft Clean Powder Review

It became my favorite product from Arkana and it’s also the one from this brand I was the most excited to try and do I tell you, it actually lived up to the expectations.

It has the different kind of product feeling that I love, but I also really like the quality of this facial cleanser. When in contact with water, it gets a soft texture that cleans my face well. It’s just a cleanser, it won’t remove makeup, so don’t forget to remove your makeup before this step.

This product is recommended for sensitive and delicate skin, as well as irritated skin by chemical peel treatments or excessive sun exposure. It’s also hypoallergenic.

 

Arkana Soft Clean Powder Review

 

The Soft Clean Powder has many active ingredients such as amino-acid, aloe vera, Allantoin (hydrates, smoothes and removes dead cells), Salicylic Acid (clears and unclog pores, exfoliates dead cells and it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties), lemon extract (rich in natural vitamin C and with antioxidant qualities) and cornstarch (that absorbs the excess of sebum and mattifies the skin, being adequate also for oily skin).

It leaves my skin soft and smooth, I have oily skin and it doesn’t make my skin oily, but it also doesn’t dry it out, but I always apply a moisturizer day and night after washing my face so I can get it moistened and hydrated even after using products for oily skin (oily skin also needs hydration).

 

The coolest thing about this product is that it’s in powder! I always wanted to try a facial powder cleanser since I’ve heard about them a few years ago from asian brands, but I didn’t have my hand on any before the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana. Here’s how the texture looks like when dry:

Soft clean powder from Arkana

When you have wet hands and then get a bit of the powder on your hands, it transforms the powder texture into a foam/liquid kind of texture that’s easy to apply and very comfortable. It’s also a very no-mess kind of product.

You can see better this texture on my video review of the Arkana skincare products I had tried, the Soft Clean Powder is the first one I talk about on the video:

 

Another interesting fact about the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana is that since it’s in a powder texture, I love to take it when I’m traveling, because it’s much easier to carry than a liquid facial cleanser would be.
