Estee Lauder Double Stay in Place Review

Hello, dear readers! So, today I wanted to share with you my opinion regarding the foundation Estee Lauder Double Stay in Place. I heard so many positive things about this product before and a few months back I decided to give it a try.

As you might know, having sensitive skin and acne-prone makes it difficult to identify a product that might actually work for you. I am saying this because I kept looking for the perfect product since my acne problems started long ago, and nothing seemed to really work.

Most of the products that I have used in the past either looked good on the skin after applying them, but shortly after you could see the difference, you could see clearly the imperfections out of the skin, which in time became oily and hard to manage.

As you know I have tried in the past also the revolutionary Revlon Foundation. It worked for about a few months until I managed to observe that my skin does not really go well with it. It’s a heavy foundation that is hard to remove from the face, it becomes oily and it’s not the right answer, at least not for me.

Estee Lauder Double Stay in Place Foundation

At the moment, this foundation is No. 1 in the US and not only. Estee Lauder Double Stay in Place comes in all skin tones, all undertones. It is a matte foundation that looks flawless and natural, feels lightweight and comfortable.

The best part of this foundation is that it is a long-wear product, it’s oil-free and oil-controlling, and moreover is transfer-resistant, and the waterproof formula lasts longer in humid and hot places.

For me, Estee Lauder Double Stay in Place is the best answer until now. I can go to work and stay even 12 hours, my skin does not get oily, looks fresh and clean.

Also, it is easy to wear and doesn’t act too harshly with the skin. Making a comparison with Revlon, Estee Lauder it’s a miracle. Revlon became oily after the first 2 hours, had no transfer resistance at all, it was hard to wear on the skin and worsened my skin condition.

With Estee Lauder Double Stay in Place sometimes I even forget that I am wearing it. It is so comfortable to wear and kind with the skin, thing that simply makes me love it.

Also, when I arrive at home I make sure that I cleanse my face well, and rarely I can observe any skin eruptions and those when I go too over the board with the consumption of dairy products.

Yes, the price is a little bit spicy but it deserves its payment, I rather purchase a more expensive product and use it wisely than spend less and cause harm to my skin and self-respect.

I use to buy the foundation from Sephora as it is more close to my workspace and the employees are really great and offer great advice about the skin and not only. I would totally recommend this product as for me it works the best, I have no complaints about it so far and I am a happy customer 😄.

Review Clinique 3 steps

Hello, my dearest ones!

Lately I have received advice from friends and acquaintances regarding Clinique cosmetics. Knowing myself with a sensitive skin prone to acne and blemishes, I told myself that there is nothing wrong with trying.

Given that I work near a mall, I considered the Sephora store for more details. The store staff was very nice and able to answer all my questions about these products.

From the store I was recommended for the beginning, to see how the skin behaves with the products a small skin care kit containing the following: 50 ml facial liquid soap, 100 ml cleansing tonic liquid and a 30 ml moisturizing emulsion .

The set of products costs 150 lei purchased directly from the Sephora store, but considering that it was the Black Friday period, I managed to find the set at a better price from the Elephant, at 90 lei.

I started using the products immediately after I recovered the parcel from the courier, being curious about the results from the first day.

I. Liquid Cleansing Soap – Cleansing soap is one of the best products tried so far, because it is a light, water soluble and gentle skin product.

It removes makeup easily, removing the foundation and cosmetics right from the first try. It does not irritate or dry the skin, leaving a pleasant smell after use.

II. Tonic Cleansing Liquid – Tonic Cleansing Liquid is the second step in the facial care ritual, representing an exfoliating lotion. It contains alcohol and witch hazel that reduces healing during the healing process and smooths the skin around the affected area.

III. Moisturizing emulsion – Moisturizing emulsion has the texture of a lotion, is lightweight and has been rapidly absorbed by the skin. This product has no oils and hydrates the skin deeply, leaving the skin soft and luminous.

Opinions about Clinique 3 steps products

Overall, I am satisfied with these cleaning products. It does not treat the affected skin in depth, but it keeps the skin clean and less prone to acne, acting gentle on imperfections and external agents.

In order for the products to have an effect on the skin, they must be used together as recommended even in the name. Used daily, under normal conditions it helps to improve the quality of the skin, giving a fresh and youthful skin, without problems.

Recenzie produse Clinique 3 steps

Buna ziua, dragilor!

In ultima perioada am primit sfaturi de la prieteni si cunostinte cu privire la produsele cosmetice Clinique. Stiindu-ma cu un ten sensibil si predispus la acnee si imperfectiuni mi-am zis ca nu este nimic gresit in a incerca.

Avand in vedere faptul ca lucrez aproape de un centru comercial, am luat in considerare magazinul Sephora pentru mai multe detalii. Personalul magazinului a fost foarte dragut si in masura sa imi raspunda la toate intrebarile cu privire la aceste produse.

Din magazin mi-a fost recomandat pentru inceput, pentru a observa cum se comporta pielea cu produsele un mic kit de ingrijire a tenului ce contine urmatoarele: sapun lichid facial 50 ml, lichid tonic de curatare 100 ml si o emulsie hidratanta de 30 de ml.

Setul de produse costa 150 de lei achizitionat direct din magazinul Sephora, insa avand in vedere ca a fost perioada de Black Friday am reusit sa gasesc setul la un pret mai bun de pe Elefant, la 90 de lei.

Am inceput sa utilizez produsele chiar imediat dupa ce am recuperat coletul de la curier, fiind curioasa de rezultate chiar din prima zi.

I. Sapunul lichid de curatare Sapunul de curatare este unul dintre cele mai bune produse incercate pana in prezent, datorita faptului ca este un produs usor, solubil in apa si bland cu pielea.

Acesta indeparteaza machiajul cu usurinta, indepartand fondul de ten si produsele cosmetice chiar din prima incercare. Nu irita sau usuca pielea, lasand un miros placut dupa utilizare.

II. Lichidul tonic de curatare – Lichidul tonic de curatare reprezinta pasul al doilea din ritualul de ingrijire a fetei, reprezentand o lotiune exfolianta. Acesta contine alcool si hamamelis (witch hazel) ce reduce cicatrizarea in timpul procesului de vindecare si uniformizeaza pielea din jurul zonei afectate.

III. Emulsia hidratanta – Emulsia hidratanta are textura unei lotiuni, este usoara si a fost absorbita rapid de piele. Acest produs nu are uleiuri si hidrateaza pielea in profunzime, lasand tenul catifelat si luminos.

Pareri despre produsele Clinique 3 steps

Per total, ma declar multumita de aceste produse de curatare. Nu trateaza in profunzime pielea afectata dar pastreaza tenul curat si mai putin predispus la acnee, actionand bland asupra imperfectiunilor si agentilor externi.

Pentru ca produsele sa isi faca efectul asupra pielii, trebuie folosite impreuna precum este recomandat chiar si din denumire. Utilizat in fiecare zi, in regim normal ajuta la imbunatatirea calitatii pielii conferind un ten proaspat si tanar, fara probleme.

Review Dermacol Foundation

Today I will talk about a product frequently used by me during the years 2018/2019, namely the Dermacol foundation.


What is Dermacol?

Dermacol company was founded in Prague in 1960, bringing unique products to the market from the beginning. Dermacol foundation is a hypoallergenic product that offers extreme coverage with a natural and fresh final look.

Due to the fact that Dermacol has 50% pigmented component, it gives the skin full coverage. Dermacol has the possibility to cover the entire area of ​​the skin affected by imperfections, acne skin, scratches, blemishes and even tattoos.

What I like about Dermacol?

I have a skin that is very light in color and prone to acne, which makes it impossible for me sometimes to find a product that covers well, does not cause allergic reactions and suits the skin tone.

In time, I discovered that Dermacol product along with a decent primer and a cosmetic powder may be the best choice for a long day. Applied with the help of a sponge for makeup in small quantity can resist up to 24 hours.

I find it amazing to this foundation that it has a very low price compared to the competing products on the cosmetics market.

The product comes packaged in a small tube, which can be opened easily by removing the seal.

The texture of the foundation is creamy, which makes it easy to blend and apply to the skin. The product also has a pleasant, floral scent.

Dermacol is water resistant, ideal for all skin types.

A small tube of foundation can last a whole year under the conditions it is used with care, because it has high coverage power and a drop can be enough for the entire face.

What I don’t like about Dermacol?

Besides positive attributes, Dermacol also has negative attributes. I do not like this foundation because you always have to be careful about the quantity used. If the product is not properly distributed on the skin, it tends to become oily, creating an unwanted look.

Also, during the day you should have make-up powder, especially in the summer. The probability of sweating is very high and it is most advisable to apply as little product as possible to avoid unpleasant situations.

Transfer resistance: 0. The product has an oily texture which makes it extremely prone to transfer. To be serious, it is not pleasant to leave foundation on the clothes of the person next to you or even more on his / her skin. I recommend the use of a cosmetic powder.

Due to the fact that it has great coverage power, the particles of the foundation enter the pores of the skin and can easily cause imperfections. In this case, it is recommended to thoroughly clean the skin after use, exfoliating and moisturizing the skin.

Overall, I recommend this product. Dermacol is one of the foundations that work for me and I can say that I am satisfied with it.

Review Fond de ten Dermacol

Astazi voi vorbi despre un produs utilizat frecvent  de mine in decursul anilor 2018/2019 si anume fondul de ten Dermacol.


Ce este Dermacol?

Compania Dermacol a fost fondata in Praga in 1960, aducand pe piata produse unice inca de la inceput. Fondul de ten Dermacol este un produs hipoalergenic ce ofera o acoperire extrema cu un look final natural si proaspat.

Datorita faptului ca Dermacol are in componenta sa pigmenti in proportie de 50%, ofera pielii o acoperire totala. Dermacol are posibilitatea de a acoperi in intregime zona pielii afectata de imperfectiuni, ten acneic, zgarieturi, pete si chiar si tatuaje.

Ce imi place la Dermacol?

Am un ten foarte deschis la culoare si predispus la acnee, ceea ce imi face imposibila uneori gasirea unui produs care sa acopere bine, sa nu provoace reactii alergice si sa se potriveasca nuantei pielii.

In timp, am descoperit ca produsul Dermacol impreuna cu un primer decent si o pudra matifianta poate fi cea mai buna alegere pentru o zi lunga. Aplicat cu ajutorul unui buretel pentru machiaj in cantitate mica poate rezista pana la 24 de h.

Mi se pare uimitor la acest fond de ten faptul ca are un pret foarte mic (40 de lei) in comparatie cu produsele concurente de pe piata cosmetica (200 de lei in sus).

Produsul vine ambalat intr-un tub mic, ce poate fi deschis cu usurinta prin indepartarea sigiliului.

Textura fondului de ten este cremoasa, ceea ce il face usor de intins si aplicat pe piele. De asemenea, produsul are un parfum placut, floral.

Dermacol este rezistent la apa, ideal pentru toate tipurile de ten.

Un tub mic de fond de ten poate tine un an intreg in conditiile in care este folosit cu atentie, deoarece are putere mare de acoperire si un strop poate fi indeajuns pentru tot tenul.

Ce nu imi place la Dermacol?

Pe langa atribute pozitive, Dermacol are si atribute negative totusi. Nu imi place la acest fond de ten faptul  ca trebuie mereu sa fii atenta la cantitatea utilizata. In cazul in care produsul nu este distribuit corespunzator pe piele, acesta are tendita sa devina uleios, creand un look nedorit.

De asemenea, in timpul zilei trebuie sa ai la tine pudra matifianta, in special in sezonul cald. Probabilitatea de a transpira este foarte mare si cel mai recomandabil ar fi sa aplici cat mai putin produs pentru a evita situatiile neplacute.

Rezistenta la transfer: 0. Produsul are textura uleioasa ceea ce il face extrem de predispus la transfer. Sa fim seriosi, nu e placut sa lasi fond de ten pe hainele persoanei de langa tine sau cu atat mai mult pe tenul acestuia/acesteia.  Recomand utilizarea unei pudre cosmetice matifiante.

Din cauza faptului ca are putere mare de acoperire, particulele fondului de ten intra in porii pielii si pot cauza imperfectiuni. In acest caz, se recomanda curatarea riguroasa a tenului dupa folosire, exfolierea si hidratarea pielii.

Per total, recomand acest produs. Dermacol este unul dintre fondurile de ten care pentru mine functioneaza si pot spune ca sunt multumita de el.

Voi ce parere aveti? 🙂

Review Aroma Plant 2#

Okay, asadar dintr-un comentariu la Review-ul facut de saptamana trecuta la Aroma Plant, Illusion ma ruga sa o tin la curent cu folosirea produselor marca Aroma Plant si evolutia mea. So, dear Illusion here we go! 😀


Saptamana aceasta, desi a fost putin cam ciudata, fiind prima saptamana de lucru la o companie necunoscuta de mine, cu munca pe acasa si gatitul tot am reusit sa folosesc cu regularitate aceste produse.

Am ales sa folosesc mai des aceste produse in primul rand pentru mine, pentru a observa schimbarile ce se petrec in organismul meu si pe fata mea, si in al doilea rand pentru voi dragi cititori.

In prima faza, e putin cam greut de utilizat cu regularitate crema deoarece dupa cum am mentionat si in articolul precedent, are un miros cam neplacut datorita grasimii animale din componenta sa dar dupa o vreme mirosul incepe sa iti para mai comun, si nu mai exista acea reactie de miros insuportabil.


Lotiunea, acum drept sa va spun, imi este indiferenta in sensul ca nu ma deranjeaza la folosire. Acest produs are doar plantele din marul lupului macerate si alcool dublu rafinat si este suportabil.


Cat despre ceai, pana joi a fost bine 😀 . Spun pana joi deoarece in acea seara eram mai obosita si am neglijat cantitatea de plante pe care am pus-o in apa fiarta, si am avut din nou probleme cu stomacul, dar no problem, acestea trec.


Asadar, dupa o saptamana de folosire cu regularitate a acestor produse, lotiunea de fiecare data dupa ce ma spal pe fata, crema odata sau de doua ori pe zi si ceaiul de trei ori pe zi rezultatele sunt vizibile.

Acneea s-a dat batuta, imperfectiunile dispar treptat lasand in urma o fata curata, neteda si proaspata.

Pana la urma, recomandarea parintilor mei a dat roade, si produsele marca Aroma Plant chiar functioneaza!

Aroma plant si efectele curative ale acestor produse

Acum cateva zile m-am intalnit cu parintii mei la tara. Oameni simpli, sociabili si cei mai buni prieteni 😀 !

Din pacate, si la ei, varsta a cam ajuns la apogeu si odata cu ea au sosit si problemele de sanatate: guta, probleme circulatorii, colesterol ridicat si asa mai departe. Satuli de toate medicamentele din comert si de sistemul medical au incercat si alte solutii.

Despre una din acele solutii va voi vorbi si eu astazi, si anume despre Aroma Plant.

Aroma Plant este de fapt o afacere de familie, ce dateaza inca din 1860. Aceste persoane se folosesc de actiunile curative ale plantelor preparand ceaiuri, lotiuni, alifii, siropuri si uleiuri in scopul vindecarii diverselor afectiuni ale organismului: afectiuni hepato-biliare, afectiuni stomacale, diabet, sistem nervos si nu numai.

Parintii mei au observat initial reclama la televizor si au zis de ce nu?! Au pus mana pe telefon, au sunat. La capatul celalalt al receptorului se aflau chiar persoanele care produc aceste produse, mai concret Ion Bonchis si sotia sa, si i-au consiliat pe dragii mei parinti oferindu-le produsele potrivite pentru simptomele si afectiunile lor.

Initial, cand am auzit de aceasta firma si de produsele lor am fost putin sceptica. Daca erau niste persoane care urmaresc sa scoata bani de pe urma unor oameni simpli?

In fine, cateva luni au trecut, mama si tata au folosit acele produse (ceaiuri in special, lotiuni si alifii) si rezultatele s-au vazut. Acum o saptamana tata a fost la controlul de rutina, la Iasi si doctorita lui a fost uimita; Colesterolul era in limite normale si guta lui parca nici n-ar fi fost acolo!

Cercetand in cartea lor de produse, parintii mei au descoperit un tratament si pentru afectiuni ale pielii. Stiindu-ma cu tenul sensibil si predispus la acnee, imperfectiuni mi-au comandat si mie setul de produse. Am primit prin posta ceaiul depurativ, lotiunea marul lupului si crema Marul lupului.


La mine tratamentul nu a functionat prea bine deoarece nu l-am utilizat des. Ceaiul depurativ l-am folosit doar de cateva ori si nu m-am simtit prea bine deoarece am facut ceaiul mult prea concentrat si am avut efecte adverse (ceaiul a avut efect diuretic si am avut dureri stomacale) dar lotiunea de marul lupului o folosesc cu strictete. Crema de marul lupului are un miros respingator datorita grasimii animale pe care o are in componenta insa efectele sale sunt uimitoare.


Cu renovarea prin casa nu am mai purtat machiaj si pielea mea sensibila a fost afectata urat. Am inceput cu ceaiul, lotiunea si crema. Pot spune ca este a doua zi de cand am reinceput tratamentul si efectele sunt vizibile si se simt 100%. O sa va tin la curent cu evolutia mea insa sunt sigura ca merg inspre bine.

Asadar, Aroma Plant si familia Bonchis, va sunt recunoscatoare ca existati si ne faceti viata mai usoara!
