Cien Liquid Foundation




Bought this foundation a couple of months before and used it but didn’t find the time to share with you the experience. Now I’m going to reveal all the good and bad parts of it. That’s how we will notice once again the importance of good foundation.

Never tried before a foundation from Lidl and was intrigued when it came up. I rapidly purchased it and the first problem was that there were only three shades available, each one a little too dark for me. The shade I bought is 030 Golden tan and because it was summer then, it fitted me so much better than now.

The coverage is okay and because of the liquid formula it is easy to apply. It does have a way with skin; you have to use some moisturizing cream because there is the risk to make it dryer. The finish is matte and you have to be quick when you apply it. It leaves the skin smooth and firm and it lasts a decent amount of time.

The package is rather effective than esthetic. It has 30 ml of product.

Don’t want to be mean, but it seems like it’s something I would use only in case of an emergency, not something I would return to buy. The formula is too dense and leaves a sandy feeling. It’s a shame because a lot of products from Cien are so good. Unfortunately, this one destroys a little Cien’s reputation.

Pros:
-        -  Cheap and easy to take around package;
-       -   Nice matte finish.

Cons:
-       -  You have to be extra careful when you apply it, if you leave too much product in an area, it will look rather despicable;
-        - Few shades to pick from.

Until next time, blend well.

Oriflame Love Nature Milky Foam Cleanser and Face Toner




These two products have been my favorites lately, whenever I wanted something more delicate and calming I would use them. They are both meant for dry skin and what other season could their effect be more important?

Both bottles have 150ml of product and have oat as the base ingredient. Never thought that an ingredient so common like oat could have so many benefits for the skin. When they promised you would get your skin nourished and soothed, it wasn’t a lie. The smell is pleasant, sweet, but not overwhelming.

The face toner is among my favorites. It doesn’t irritate the skin, but leaves it smooth without feeling burdened. The thing I appreciate the most about it is the calming effect, it doesn’t stress the skin. I would usually apply it with a cotton pad, not at night, but after work as a way to bust my skin. Make-up is removed decently.

Regarding the milky foam cleanser, it is a good cleanser, it does make your skin a little dry, but it doesn’t exaggerate. The part I didn’t understood about it is the foam effect. After being used to some other products that used foam technology, this one doesn’t create a decent amount of foam. However, it does remove the impurities and leaves the skin fresh and nourished. 

Pros:
-         - The formula is very suitable for sensitive skin;
-        -  Appropriate for giving your skin a little relax time;
-        -  Great smell;
-         - The package is also good looking.

Cons:
-         - The face toner did its job completely;
-        -The face cleanser could have made a little more foam. If it wasn’t specified then it would have been okay.  Nobody likes broken promises, right?

Take care of your skin.
