L'oreal Paris Triple Active Fresh Review

Hi everyone! 

Sorry for not being a very good blogger, I need to blog often but I feel like I have so much to do, and I have so many reviews waiting in line for me, it's crazy! I have several mask reviews, nail-polish reviews, skincare reviews, and it's wayyy too much, I'm getting tired just thinking about it. 

But anyways, here is my L'oreal moisturiser review, this is my current moisturiser along with one other. 

This is; L'Oréal Triple Active Fresh intensive moisturising gel cream. 

I use a washgel for my face, but never have I had a moisturizing gel. The texture is quite different, it really does have the texture of a typical washgel. It cools down the skin and feels super nice in the morning when you need to wake up - thought it's a con at night when you want to stay sleepy. 

Here's a gif to give you an idea of how the texture is.

This matches my skin since it also suits mixed/combined skin. I do not use this for my neck though, face only. It says that it "tonifies" and I feel like it actually really does, it makes my face feel super fresh! 

The moisturiser is cheap, hence there's not a lot of a product in the big bottle. I feel I paid more for the pretty bottle, than I did for my product. 

Translation: TRIPLE ACTIVE FRESH extra moisturising gel-cream is full of vitamins (CG, E and B5) and essential minerals (magnesium and calcium) for a full feeling of moisture, for an immediatly fresh skin with a fresh teint everyday. 

Triple effect. 
Moisturises: Adds intenst and full moist to the skin all day. 
Gives springines (anti-wrinkle: The formula is full of vitamins and minerals to make the skin springy (lol, I can't find a better translation) and give it new energy. 
Refreshes: Your skin will immidiatly refreshed thanks to the soft gel-texture.

Result: The skin becomes refreshed and springy. It will have lots of mositurise from morning to evening and feels soft and nice. 

How to use: Apply to face and neck every morning and evening after cleaninsing skin. The gel-creams easy consistence makes it for the skin quick to absorb. 

I use the L'oreal moisturiser for my face and Neautral Face Cream for my neck. 

- The gel-texture is awesome!
- It freshnes up my face
- Cheap

- Lots of parfum, it doesn't smell good
- Not a good moisturiser for normal or dry skin

All in all, I like it, but I would not continue buying it. 
That's all for this entry. See you in my next, which hopefully will be sooner.

Essie Nailpolish Review

Sorry for being inactive for so long, I've been busy (playing sims *cough* *cough*) 
I'm back with a small Essie-nailpolish review! I'm reviewing both the pink one and the "grow stronger", but this entry will be meant for "grow stronger". I'm a huuuuge fan of Essie's nailpolish, they're all the perfect flawless colours! 
For my lazyness recently, I've started on a new this february. I am going to fitness and I do my skincare (or try to) every single day, no matter how much lack of sleep I've gotten! But I sure look tired now... 

Anyways, here are my two recent buys, the Essie "Need a Vacation", which is this super quite strawberrymilk colour, and this "Grow Stronger" Essie polish. It has no colour, but is meant to strenghten weak nails, like mine! 

 First I removed my nailpolish, put on handcream, and cut my nails short. My nails can't get more than a few milimetres long before they break off or get ugly. My nails are and have always been very ugly and fragile, and now that I'm working it's even worse. They floss very easy, and my thumbs are the worst, hence I don't want to upload a picture of them. I can not grow them long at all, and they seem to be in several "layers" of nail. 

So I was hoping I could find my saviour here!
It works as a basecoat as well. It says that in just 5 days your nails should appear and grow out stronger. Seems good to me! ~
I've worn it for 2 weeks now, and I have had nailpolish above it. (Apply as a basecoat, let it dry, and apply a coloured polish). It works alright I guess. I feel my nails are still very fragile, but they look prettier. They can't grow very long, but that's probably just a fact I have to look in the eyes. Poor me, I think it's super feminine when girls have long and healthy nails! 

Essie is semi-pricey for a nailpolish, but you do get a good amount of product. I now own 7 Essie-nailpolishes, and I love them! They're about 18dollars for one polish. 

All in all, I'm satisfied, recommended for weak nails! But I don't think my nails grow a lot longer though. But at least they are healthier! Hope you enjoy my thoughts on this product.

Bye for now, see you soon hopefully! ~
