Today I will talk about I problem I have since I hit puberty. It's the dreadful thighs. Even when I was skinny, my thighs always rubbed somewhat together and now that I have gained weight the problem is even more noticeable. It's not that rubbing is unpleasant (it is), but the irritation after it (rashes, tiny acne or blisters, redness on the area) is a real problem.

I have received from the Slovenian Essence PR team a sample of the new Essence Fun Fair collection. I got a blush and the lovely "cotton candy" decoration for nails.
The blush comes in this round package, that doesn't look all that travel friendly. But the font is lovely and I think that's what makes it pretty.
Mine came in the color "Ring around the Rosy" which is a cool toned pink.
It is also pretty pigmented, so you don't need a lot for it to transfer from your blush to your face.
Because I get more "pink" toned in the Summer, I will keep this blush and see how well it looks on me during Winter days. For the Summer days I'm more of a coral / red kind of a blush lady. ;)
+ blush is very pigmented
+ stays all day on me
+ inexpensive (about 2€)
- the package isn't good, it opens very easily (even on its own when you bump it in stuff)
I think that Essence makes great products, especially for their Trend Editions. I am usually not a huge fan of their blushes (from the regular line), because they don't stay on long enough on my skin. But the blushes that come in their TEs are wonderful. Pigmented and long lasting. The design of the blush is OK, sadly the packaging lacks and I hope they will keep this in mind for their next line.
Overall it's a good product for a decent price and I do totally recommend it.
I also received a "cotton candy" nail decoration and I want to give it to one of my followers.
This giveaway is open internationally.
It starts on Monday 27th of July and ends on Monday 17th of August at midnight.
This product was sent to me by the company itself or its PR. For more information please do read my Disclosure Policy. My opinion is always honest.

Last week we went shopping to Italy, Monte D'Oro. We went to check H&M and even if I said I won't be buying any cosmetics, but rather focus on clothes, I couldn't skip the occasion when I saw many products marked down to 1€.
I didn't know that H&M's cosmetic line was this big. I mean, in our country - Slovenia, I saw only nail polishes, an eyebrow kit and some small things here and there (a lip balm, sometimes glosses). Never this many products and never all in one place!
I only got products that I would buy even if they weren't marked down, because I won't be purchasing stuff just because it's cheap.
I didn't know they had brushes! And super soft and pretty brushes too!
Nail polish duos looked pretty. I can't stop wearing the right combination. It's... so pretty and sparkling!
And a huge glass file. HUGE. Like 25 cm huge. Maybe a bit less, but still huge!

It's been a little while since I posted my latest empties post. Some have accumulated in the mean time, so I decided to share them with you.
EBELIN Nail polish remover - without Acetone (~1€)
I like this brand of nail polish removers because they are very affordable, don't stink that much and do their job well. I would repurchase it.
LUSH Lemony Flutter (~9€)
This is a holy grail among nail polish enthusiasts. It helps with cuticles in a matter of days and it is also great for dry heel skin. It's wonderful, but the scent is not my thing. I can totally forgive the scent, because it truly is an amazing product.
BALEA Oil Repair hair mask (1.6€)
I bought this mask after my hair got very damaged from the many bleaching sessions on it. At that time I didn't have a cretin mask, but this one did its job well. It helped a bit with my hair. But I prefer the stronger "professional" mask, so I won't repurchase it.
TOO FACED Shadow Insurance eye primer (~15€)
I remember the time I bought it. I just ran out of UD primer and wanted to try something new. Well I did like using it, but it didn't exceed my expectations. The shadows become a bit muted or diluted after a couple of hours of wear and sparkle doesn't look at all pretty on it. The staying power is fine, except during hot, hot summer days.
I don't think I'll be repurchasing it.
EVERYDAY MINERALS finishing powder sample (1€)
I must say that I was expecting a bigger quantity of a sample. Okay, not bigger but in a vial kind of packaging. This packaging is hard to use, so I had to put it into another pot.
It does well with fixing my makeup, but doesn't help it last longer.
I won't repurchase it, because I am not impressed with it.
DAS GESUNDE PLUS A-Z vitamin capsules (~5€)
I have been using these vitamins for the last half a year. I think they do help with faster healing (of skin) and they have (at least a Placebo effect) an effect on me. I do like them and I will be repurchasing them.
BALEA Cocos & Nektarine Deo Roll-ON (~2€)
I had high expectations from this deodorant, because I love their Shower gel with the same scent. Sadly it stops smelling good about 2h into wear and then starts to stink. It's irritating to say the least.
I won't repurchase it.
These are the products I wanted to talk about today. Did you try any of the talked about products?

I am back with another TOP post which will be featuring all the colors that are IN this Summer.
Every Summer a must have basic color is plain white polish. And add some neons and you're good to go.
But this Summer there have been seen color combinations that mixed a neon mint with some neon pinks, yellows and oranges. It's quite lovely to see.
As you can see I picked a bit from this and that brand. My favorites polishes (this Summer) come from Alessandro, China Glaze, Essence and Oriflame.
Click on the swatch picture to view it full sized.
1. Oriflame white (for the french manicure, but it works well as an overall polish). Dries quickly and has a "drier" formula, more like an edis whitener.
2. Essence Indian Summer has a great formula and dies in a OK time. Love this color!
3. Essence Love is in the Air is one of my absolute favorite yellow polishes. Pastel and bright.
4. Alessandro Tropical Jungle Pinkini - the perfect neon pink. Dries semi matte and also quickly!
5. Alessandro Tropical Jungle Fantasy Island - a neon violet, that isn't all that very much neon. Camera doesn't do it justice because it is beautiful.
6. Alessandro Tropical Jungle Mintastic - A mint neon that makes pale skin look even paler.
7. China Glaze Sun Worshiper is a lovely neon yellowish orange that needs a white base underneath to get the color quicker and more opaque.
Which are your Summer nail polish Must haves?

It's time for the so much promised review of the Makeup Geek palette by Makeup Revolution (I heart makeup sister brand).
The palette comes in this rectangular packaging, which isn't anything too pretty or special, until...
Yeah, the holographic cover does help!

V recenzijo sem dobila masko, katero sem si že nekaj časa želela, pa se kar nisem in nisem mogla odločiti za nakup. Bila sem v dvomih kako bi se obnesla na moji mešani koži, katera je pred kratkim še tako zelo rada izbruhnila v bolečih aknah.
I got to review a mask/peeling about which I was thinking for a very long time. I wanted to buy it, but then again I wasn't sure. Why? Well I was in doubt because my skin was terrible, I had lots of acne and anything would make them reappear in a more powerful wave. Ouch!
Gre za zeleno DETOX masko, katera vsebuje same super (zelene) sestavine.
It's a DETOX green mask, which contains only the best (green) ingredients.
