graduating, so we(me, Alina and my mom)did go on a cruise Riga-Stockholm -Riga on the ship Tallink ”Isabella”.On the first night there I had the worst headache ever and Alina won in the lottery(on the ship)! We did sleep a lot and had deep talks and catching up with each other.

Midsummer Celebration!

It was a 3-day trip and this time we did have an excursion to a city called Sigtuna(because we all have seen Stockholm like thousand times and will see it in the future too). And I really liked it there, it was very quiet and we did see the Midsummer celebration. I can say you one thing, it was

exceptionally weird to go to Sweden and not have the usually stressed atmosphere around us because of work (we joked about that every a lot I think). I genuinely enjoyed the trip and spending time with my mom and my best friend.

Clinique Pep-Start hydroblur moisturizer review!

giphy (5)Hello, my darlings! How are you this week? Do you already have summer plans? I finally have, going to Sweden this week for vacation(so look out for a blog post of that). But today I want to talk about skincare, to be exact about Clinique Pep-start hydroblur moisturizer.Let’s start with the review!

About the product :

IMG_20180614_125308

Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination

What it is:
A lightweight, 24/7 hydrator that provides matte moisturization, instantly blurs imperfections, and preps for makeup.

Solutions for:
– Oiliness

If you want to know more…
This lightweight, oil-free moisturizer instantly blurs imperfections and provides all-day hydration, while immediately reducing surface shine and providing lasting oil control for up to eight hours. Great for use alone, under foundation, or for touch-ups throughout the day, skin looks naturally perfected with a matte finish. It’s the ideal way to give your skin the moisture it needs, and the forgiving retouch that blurs the look of pores and fine, dry lines.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
This product is allergy tested, non-acnegenic, and free of fragrance and oil.

My Thoughts:

Consistency: 4/5 stars

4-stars

It feels very slippery, but smooth when you put it on your face. It does feel like a silicon-based primer on the face. I’m not mad about it.

The quality of my skin after use: 3,5/5

3-5-stars

It’s too oily for me…sadly. I’m used to every single “for all skin types expecialy oily skin” products never working for me ,but I still buy them…Why??? Becouse I still hope that maybe it will work(If you don’t know my skin is very oily and acne pron). I think it’s better for winter or fall when my skin is a little bit on the dry side.

Overall: 4/5 stars

4-stars

IMG_20180614_125340

Overall it’s not that bad if I use it twice a week like a primer in this hot summer,but I think it’s better for my skin in winter. So if you have very oily skin keep that in mind.
