got2b 2 Sexy – Yay or nay?

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

got2b sexySom ni säkert läst så vann jag en tävling hos Beleza och fick därför Schwarzkopf got2b 2 Sexy big volume hårspray och mousse med collagen lift effect.

Nu har jag hunnit testa dem ett tag och kan nu göra ett ordentligt utlåtande ;).

Moussen:
Är helt okej. Har använt den i vått hår innan föning och den luktar inte för starkt (luktar lite hallon på ett kemiskt sätt (?)). Lukten tycker jag försvinner efter föningen. Stadgan tycker jag är jättebra jämfört med Wella’s mousse.

Sprayen: Efter föning med moussen så har jag använt sprayen. Den luktar väldans mycket i början men det antar jag att alla gör, man bör ha god ventilation! Känner mig däremot lite kluven till “hallondoften” även om lukten inte stannar kvar hela dagen. Stadgan är fantastisk! Håll upp håret, spraya lite grann och håret stannar i samma vinkel som du höll det i!

Dock har jag märkt att mitt hår blir extremt sprött och frasigt efter sprayningen! Jag blev nästan lite rädd! Det kändes verkligen som att håret skulle trilla av om jag rörde vid det! Det var samma visa varje gång tills jag slutade använda båda samtidigt!

På mig fungerar de här bäst var för sig! Min hårbotten kliar lite efter att jag haft sprayen i en hel dag, men jag har ännu inte hittat någon som inte kliar!

Produkterna tillsammans: 1/5

Var för sig:
Schwarzkopf got2b 2 Sexy Big Volume Hairspray: 3/5
Schwarzkopf got2b 2 Sexy Big Volume Mousse: 4/5



English:

I posted before that I won a contest at Beleza where I got Schwarzkopf got2b 2 Sexy big volume hairspray and mousse with collagen lift effect.
Now I’ve tried them out for a while and here is my little review:

Mousse: Works great. I’ve used it in wet hair before blow-drying it and the smell isn’t too strong (smells a little bit like raspberries in a weird chemical way). Most of the smell disappears after the blow-drying. It’s way better/stronger than Wella’s mousse.

Spray: After blow-drying with the mousse, I used the spray. It smells quite a lot in the beginning (don’t they all?) and I’m not sure if I like the “raspberry scent”. But it does the job great! Hold up the hair, spray it and it will stray in the hair will stay in the same position!
However, after using it, I’ve noticed that my hair got extremely fragile and crispy! I got a little scared that my hair would fall of if I touched it. It happened every time until I stopped using the mousse and the spray together!

So, on me these products works best separately! My scalp do itch after wearing the spray for a day, but I have not yet found a spray that doesn’t give me itch yet!

The products together: 1/5

Separately:
Schwarzkopf got2b 2 Sexy Big Volume Hairspray: 3/5
Schwarzkopf got2b 2 Sexy Big Volume Mousse: 4/5

Lucy Minerals Foundation

Friday, April 9th, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I received samples of Lucy Minerals foundation (I ordered the original formula – If you have oily skin they have a Oil Control Foundation and if you are extremely allergic they have a Lucy Light Foundation – without any additives.) in the shades Fair, Light and Snow White (it rhymes!). I’ve seen so many good reviews online about them that I just had to order some samples to try them out myself! They came in tiny zip-lock baggies but there were quite a lot in them! Will last long for me!
The sample sizes are $1.50 and the full-sizes are $14 with free shipping ($6.00 Minimum Order) worldwide!

Lucy Mineral Samples

What the website says

Anti-aging, natural sun protection (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide), NO Parabens or Micronized Minerals, Water-resistant – Holds up well in humidity, Zinc Oxide has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, Ideal for sensitive, acne-prone, or problem skin (especially rosacea), Contains the ingredient Allantoin (an anti-irritant) to soothe and protect the skin, Great coverage – reduces redness in skin, Free from bismuth oxychloride, talc, fragrance or preservatives…

Since I have problem with my skin; extremely dry areas and redness I was so excited to try it out! And the first time I used it I was like; WOW! Extremely good first impression! And second, and third! I love it! It covers my redness really good and it stays on longer than I thought as well. I even got a bit sweaty one day and I just had to put on some powder on my forehead to cover the shininess.

As you can see below, I have put on the “Light” foundation on the left side (just a little to make it look as natural as possible), the right side is only moisturized (look at that horrible redness, and this is on a good day!).To me it was a huge change!

Lucy Minerals Foundation Fair
After the photo was taken I put Everyday Minerals foundation “Fair” (Intensive formula) that I normally wear on the other side just to compare. The EM foundation didn’t cover the redness as good as Lucy Minerals, I also felt that EM made my skin more dry and that I had to use more to get the coverage I wanted. I have also had the feeling that EM wears of more easily during the day.

The shades

At first I thought “Fair” was too light for me but now I think that it’s almost the perfect match. If I compare with Everyday Minerals, I can use their “Fair” and “Ivory”. Even if it’s hard to tell from the picture, EM’s “Fair” is a tiny bit darker than LM’s “Fair”. I haven’t even tried “Light” yet, it seems too dark and too yellow for me.

Be ware of “Snow White”! It’s really white! :P I tried a little bit on to see if it made my skintone brighter, and hell yes. I looked like a goth afterwards! :D So Snow White is a foundation for all you goths out there! However, it’s perfect to brighten the other shades up a bit, or use it as a highlighter.

Everyday Minerals vs Lucy Minerals

Buy full-size?

If it doesn’t happen anything unexpected with the rest of the sample, I will absolutely buy a full-size!

Have you tried Lucy Minerals? What are your thoughts?
