Stenders Chocolate & Vanilla

Monday, 20 October 2014

Yet another long overdue post. I got sent this Stenders duo that is perfect for any passionate chocolate lover out there. I'll be honest, I don't recognize much of the vanilla, which kind of saddens me because the scent is very strong and I'm not too big on chocolate in general *sorry*. Scent wise, it all comes down to personal taste here. Otherwise, the shower gel is really lovely, creamy and ladders up perfectly. Can I really say more about a shower gel? The body scrub on the other hand I LOVED from the beginning, it made my skin soooo so so soft and due to the indulging scent, the whole experience was really pampering. But then, not even a month later, something really odd happened; I wanted to scrub the day away and upon unscrewing the lid, I discovered this. I do not know if this was my jar only or did I not store it correctly.... Either way, it was a very sad day. You can check out all of the yummy pampering stuff by Stenders here

Stenders Rose Hand cream

Wednesday, 3 September 2014


I have a quick little review for you today, as I really don't think there's a lot to say about a hand cream. First and foremost, I really love the packaging on this one - matte, dirty pink (?) with a silver cap, plus the opening is really tiny so there's no danger of squirting out too much product. It claims to be rose scented and while I know absolutely nothing about flower scents, this is a pleasant and subtle one, therefore it can't get annoying over time. As far as nourishing goes, it's your average everyday throw-in-the-handbag kind of hand cream: not too thick and sticky, yet not one of those cheapo ones that only make your hands feel unpleasant. It also almost doesn't make your hands greasy at all so that's always welcome as well. You can snatch a tube of 75ml for 10,75.

LUSH Ro's Argan Body Conditioner (ft. a letter of return)

Tuesday, 22 July 2014
First things first - yes, I am still alive. My readers (all four of them) had probably given up on me months ago, but it just feels weird posting like nothing happened after such a long time. I wish I could blame it on school and exams, but I was slacking so much I can only blame it on being busy procrastinating. More than anything though, I just didn't really feel like blogging and I figured it's better not to post than do it poorly just to do it. Well after falling out of the habit and seriously considering deleting the entire web site, I started to really miss it, so I came up with a plan. I have a bunch of products left to review from months ago (companies probably hate my guts) so I'll get that out of my way first - which does not by any means mean the reviews will be any less honest! After that, I'm not going to be accepting any more products to review (unless I get some super amazing offer, but I don't see Nars or Mac writing me any emails in the near future), though I'm still open to hosting giveaways for brands. I've also decided to quit my 'new in' monthly series, since I always show what I buy on my Instagram (@NusaPavlic) and Facebook and Twitter (@NusaPavlic) right away so I really don't see the point. Bottom line, I am back to spamming Twitter timelines with links to my new posts!

****

Now onto the gorgeousness that is this little LUSH miracle. I did not know what to expect from a 'body conditioner', but saw the rave and as much as I didn't believe it, I am a changed woman after trying it out. First and foremost - I'm pretty sure this is what heaven's chambers smell like. I guess it smells like roses, but oh it's so much more! I can't even begin to explain it, but it's amazing, very specific, yet I am positive no living being would hate it, very powerful, yet so subtle you can't get that 'scent headache' even if you wanted to. I could stop here and order you to get it for the smell only, but I've got more. It also lasts on your skin (and in the bathroom) for absolutely ages! I apply this after rinsing my shower gel as usual. I massage it in (just because it feels so amazing) and perhaps let it really work its magic for a minute or two (in that time I die a few times because it smells so heavenly), then rinse it off and there you go, most deliciously smelling, soft. moisturized, silky skin I've ever had. Applying lotion as well kinda ruins it because I honestly don't need it, I just can't really see it getting any better than this. And you know how you sometimes love a product so much you'd rather die than let someone borrow it? Well, I love this SO much, I gave my half full jar to my friend Ĺ˝iva, I jsut couldn't bear to be the only one enjoying it. And because this is such a pamper product for those nights you crave some spoiling, the price fits aswell. It's quite heavy on the wallet (€26,95 for 225g), but to be honest, I think I wouldn't see it as such a treat if it were a few bucks only. Bottom line, this is the ultimate pamper night product and I think everyone should snatch themselves a jar the second they can spare those twenty-something euros.

Stenders shampoo and hair cream

Saturday, 3 May 2014
I'm the worst blogger in the history of beauty blogging and companies that expect my reviews probably hate me, but it's not like my description claims I'm at all organized. Well anyhow, I'm bringing to you two hair product reviews today, so keep on reading if you are looking for ways to pamper your locks!


Starting off with the shampoo (which I accidentally left in my other shower and by the time I returned to that apartment, the bottle was empty, thanks to my sis - but fear not, I did get the chance to try it out); it's meant for normal hair and that is actually the best description of it. My hair falls in the category of oily scalp + dry ends, also known as devil's work, and while this shampoo did make my locks noticeably smoother and 'taken care of', I also got oilier a tad bit sooner. If you're used to washing your hair everyday as it is and just want to provide a bit more nourishment, this is perfect. It would work best for, obviously, normal hair and even dry hair if you don't like the overly creamy texture of some shampoos meant for super dry hair. This one will set you back 13,20€ for 200ml

FOTD: Yves Rocher

Sunday, 13 April 2014

I have received a bunch of makeup products from Yves Rocher in order to create a makeup look and give my honest opinion about them. Me and nine other Slovenian bloggers will then have a little competition on Facebook - makeup look with most 'likes' will win even more goodies (you can vote here)! Though I have to apologise in advance - the pictures are next to crap since, I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do not cope well with deadlines (I basically had to put this together in a week)!

Why hello here April, my favourite month! Today I'll show you the products I got in March and will keep me warm company throughout these short 30 days before the horrible May and June arrive. I am not looking forward to those fifteen exams.

Grey's Gras glitter nails

Saturday, 5 April 2014
I try to be clever with my titles but sometimes the odds are just everything but in my favour. Anyway, I had this mani stashed on my computer for ages and I just didn't get around to posting it - in fact, if you follow me on Instagram (@NusaPavlic) or Facebook (www.facebook.com/moonchildbeauty), you might have seen this before, forgot about it, and are now having a faint deja-vu. Ha!
