Hey guys!Hope you all are having a great day.

Favorite beauty products

Acnacid 2 in 1 face cream

My face is going crazy(breakouts, dry patches, redness) this past month and this face cream helped with some of the problems.It’s not drying, but doesn’t make my face oily, I really recommend if you have an oily face, but are experiencing dry patches time to time.It’s a great face cream for the price.

RL de Young power hardener

Guys, you can’t imagine how many bad reviews I have read about this nail polish. It’s mind-blowing for me because I like it even more than my favorite essence XXL nail thickener.

Dzintars-Kredo lux Lipstick in the color T76

I love it..I simply love this lipstick!It’s just perfect, creamy and the color is just amazing and looks good on me!

Created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman for CBS All Access, the story of “Star Trek: Discovery” begins roughly a decade before Captain Kirk’s five-year mission — as portrayed in the original “Star Trek” from the 1960s — and a century before the events of “Star Trek: Enterprise.” The series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they encounter new worlds and civilizations, delving into familiar themes and expanding upon an incident that has been talked about within the franchise’s universe, but never fully explored

Surprise Package: A Bad Boy Christmas Romance

by Kira Blakely

She needs a fiancé for Christmas, so I’ll pretend.
Hard not to when a gorgeous virgin walks into your strip club.
She’s thinks this is an escort service, and that I’m for hire.
Man is she in the wrong place.

Blair is everything I’m not.
Loving. Gentle. Family girl.
I’m rude, arrogant, and do what the fu@k I want.
Right now, I want her.
So, I’ll play the good fiancé.
Tell the family all the right things.
Kiss her in all the right ways.
And when we’re alone?
I’ll claim that sweet innocence.
Make her soul mine and her body tremble.
I don’t want it to end.
And I damn sure didn’t expect to feel this way.
After this, she’ll have more than just memories.
I have a special gift in mind.

All Kira Blakely novels include alphas who know what they want and know how to treat a lady. This is a full length standalone steamy Christmas romance novel. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

Skincare mini haul

giphy (1)Hello beautiful people!I hope you all had a great week.Who else is getting into Christmas mood(or is that just me)? Last week for me was …”fun” one, My old tablet died and I wasn’t able to save any photos or notes from there..that’s why my blog was a little quieter then I would like. But there is no bad without good(old Slavic saying) and my mom(bless her soul) got me a new phone as an early Christmas gift.That’s why I’m back today with a mini skincare haul from my local drugstore that carries brands from Eastern Europe and the “Dzintars” Latvian cosmetic store. Hope you enjoy!

So …What I got!

Dr. Sante Cucumber Balance Control.

Mineral Face Mask

Mineral Face Mask is produced by the Ukrainian cosmetic company Elfa for its Dr. Sante Cucumber Balance Control series. The product is formulated with white clay (kaolin). It helps to improve complexion and reduce pore size, making your skin noticeably smoother. The mask regulates sebum secretion and has a matte effect on oily and combination skin.

My thoughts: I have an eye cream from this line, so I did buy this just because I like the cream so much. I like the texture, can’t really say about the effect of using it, you need time for that to show.Overall I like it, and the price is very nice.

My thoughts: It’s not my first time getting this, It’s an okay face cream from acne prone skin.It’s not the best I ever used, but it’s pretty decent for the price.

Formula based on natural substances with vitamins and moisturizing ingredients that gives your lips a feeling of comfort. Lipstick Kredo Lux gives lips a moist shine and has a pleasant fruity aroma.

My thoughts: I just am in love with the color(it’s a little darker than my natural lip color) and how it feels on my lips, so creamy.The perfect lipstick for cold weather, your lips will stay hydrated and it does stay on lips for some time.The price is great and the lipstick is good, will buy some more.

Very creamy, but not long lasting.

Overall: 4/5 stars

This set, It’s a great way to try some pricey product before buying it.After trying I can say I will totally buy the lipstick, but the BB cream is just not for me.
