Hi beauties, did you read my previous blog post where I share with you my Morning Beauty Routine? Today I'm going to talk with you about a night beauty routine, because it is just as important as well-balanced morning skin care. Here are a few items that I keep in bathroom vanity as a part of my nightly routine.

Good morning beauties, how do you feel today? Today I would like to share with you my morning beauty routine and tell you a little bit about the products I love to use. First of I like to start my morning with cup of water. I have dry to combined skin type and experience some complications with water consumption, so this step is especially important to me. Staying hydrated is crucial for a proper functioning of body and for  healthy skin.

Balea Aqua Hydrating Serum | Review

It`s been a while since I reviewed one of my favorite beauty and skin care brand Balea, so today I`m going to talk about the Balea Aqua Hydrating Serum - a lightweight moisturizing product that hydrates and nourishes dry facial skin. Summer time is getting close, so it is a perfect timing to change the skin care products and routine.

Balea Aqua Hydrating Serum comes in a light plastic bottle with a hygienic pump on the top, so you don`t need to dip your fingers in the product every time you want to moisturize your skin - gently push a pump and get the amount of the serum you need. 

Balea Aqua Hydrating Serum has a very light and watery texture, when applied on the skin it absorbs in no time and doesn`t leave any sticky or greasy residue. I like to use this serum before my makeup, I apply a small amount of the product on the clean face and neck skin, gently massage and continue with my makeup. Balea Serum nicely hydrates the skin during the whole day without making it oily, but you can also use it at night and the serum will take care of your skin through out the whole night while you sleep. The next morning after the usage the skin feels very fresh, tight and hydrated.

Balea Aqua Hydrating Serum retails at € 2, 95 and I think it is an amazing product for those who is ready to substitute their thick and heavy winter creams and moisturizers with something more lightweight. The serum will work the best for dry and combined skin types, but people with oily and acne prone skin can use this product as well because it is water base and doesn`t cause break outs.

Lots of love,

Winter is here! The most exciting and festive season of a year will bring us a whole bunch of sweet holidays together with three cold and long months. This also means that now it is a perfect time to chance your regular skin care routine a little bit. The freezing temperatures and low humidity leave our skin dry and flaky, so the most important thing during the cold winter month is to keep our skin nourished and moisturized. Today I want to show you some of my favorite skin care helpers, that keep my skin healthy, hydrated and cozy at winter.


Though my skin is pretty dry, I always cleanse my skin with a face cleanser before bed. My favorite face wash at the moment is Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel (or simply Balea Refreshing Cleansing Gel).  The cleanser was developed for normal and combined skin types but it is good enough for sensitive skin as well, because it is very gentle and doesn`t dry the skin. I still like to apply some moisturizing cream after I wash my face. Frequent bathing and cleaning can wash out all the essential natural oils off your skin, so try to limit your bath time and don`t forget to hydrate your skin after the shower.


Winter is not a time when you can skip moisturizer, it is very important to have a good hydrating cream, which will protect your skin and restore the skin cells. But I`m not a big fan of a rich and heavy face moisturizers, I prefer to use something lighter. Cell Renew Hydro-Plus Overnight Moisturizer by Stemology perfectly fits my dry skin time, it has a very lightweight formula and consistency of a melted honey. This moisturizer is made of all natural ingredients, they help to restore and hydrate the skin overnight and keep it healthy and glowing throughout the whole winter time.


This product has a very special place on my beauty shelf and in my heart as well. This is an anti - aging serum and it was specially developed to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, discolorations and other skin problems, which occur with age. The key ingredient of the serum is Vitamin C helps to boost up natural collagen production and it serves as a shield, saving our skin from damaging free radicals and severe winter weather. I like to use this serum everyday on a freshly cleaned skin, before applying my makeup, it helps to prime my face and seal in the moisture. The serum is water based, so it absorbes in no time, leaving the skin soft and healthy.


The next product I would like to recommend is a Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, because our lips also need a very special treatment at winter. You can use this lip mask overnight or apply it during the day, if your lips need some extra hydration. The Laneige mask contains an special Berry Mix Complex - a mixture between raspberry, strawberry, cranberry and blueberry extracts rich with vitamin C, these ingredients help to remove the dead flaky skin cells of the skin during the night and the nest morning lips feel super soft and plump. Use this mask on a daily basis for the best result and stop licking your lips in the cold! This naughty habit will make your lips even more chapped and dry.

Skin Masks

The last few products I want to talk about is  facial masks. Usually I rarely use facial masks at summer, because I don`t want to over nourish the skin and clog the pores on my face, but winter is the time when I like to treat my skin with some extra attention. The Tony Moly `I’m Real Face Mask` Skin Purifying Mask and Garnier Hydra Bomb are my current favorite masks, I also like using Balea skin masks, because they perfectly fit my dry skin type. For the blackheads, which live on my nose and cheek area I use Tosowoong Blackhead & Sebum Out Nose Packs, the main ingredient of this packs is charcoal and it helps to remove dirt and grease of the pores and minimizes their appearance on the skin.

That`s all for my Winter Skin Care Routine post, now you know all the secrets to keep your skin healthy and beautiful this winter, I hope some of you will find this post useful and interesting. Drink plenty of water and don`t forget to stay warm and cozy this winter.

And what are your favorite winter skin care products? 
Lots of love,

Top 3 Cold Weather Hand Creams

cold weather winter autumn hand skin care routine remedies blogger review

Usually I do not suffer too much from a dry skin, but as the weather gets colder the skin on my hands starts to feel super dry and itchy. The situation gets even worse after a usage of cleaning products on a daily basis. The only thing that seems to fix the problem is a nice moisturizing hand cream and a pair of soft mitts to protect the skin from the severe surroundings. So I would like to dedicate today's blog post for all of my angels who consider themselves hand cream junkies and skin care addicts. 

I would like to start from Cien Madame Glamour Hand Cream, it is the newest addition to my cold weather skin care collection and favorite hand cream at the moment. Basically it is a regular hand moisturizer, but with a lightweight formula (the main ingredient is water) and gorgeous fragrance, I can sniff it all day long :) It has an incredible formula that keeps the skin smooth and nourished for a good 5 - 7 hours. The cream absorbs immediately into the skin and doesn't leave greasy residue on the hands. `Madame Glamour` by Cien is definitely a cold weather must have!

For those who needs some extra care or an emergency help I would recommend to try out a 2 in 1 Hand Cream and Mask With Macadamia Nut Oil by my favorite bargain brand Balea. This product contains a huge amount of natural macadamia seed oil, so the formula it is very nourishing and super rich. It takes quite a time to absorb into the skin, but the result - soft and fresh skin is worth waiting. You can use Macadamia Hand Cream as a skin mask. Apply a generous amount of the cream all over the hands, focusing on the most dry areas like cuticles, put on a special cotton gloves and go to bed. After you wake up in the morning your skin will be very smooth and young looking. If you suffer from extremely dry skin to the point of bleeding and cracking, I would recommend you to try out Balea Macadamia Hand Cream.

And the very last for today, but not the least and definitely the cutest product in my Best Cold Weather Hand Creams list in a Mengkou Hand Cream, for those who prefers a lightweight skin protection instead of nourishment. This product has a light gel like non - greasy consistency, that instantly absorbs and spreads evenly on the skin. I can`t say that I`m a big fan of the it`s scent, thought I liked it a while ago, but now it feels too sweet for me.

That`s all for today guys, I hope I helped you to prepare your winter skin care essentials. Please let me know what is your favorite hand cream during the cold time, I`m excited to try out something new! If you have some secret tips or homemade recipes that help to keep the hands` skin healthy and glowing please feel free to share as well , thanks for reading!

Lots of love,

Balea Refreshing Cleansing Gel | Review

When I finished my Stemology Cell Refresh Hydrating Cleanser (review) I wanted to try out something new and different. And as I have promised a million years ago today I`m finally going to review Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel or Refreshing Cleansing Gel by one of the most popular European brand Balea. This brand develops a whole bunch of budget friendly skin care cosmetics and makeup products and it is widely famous in Germany, Austria, Hungary and other countries.

Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel is a very basic cleanser it does not have fancy packaging or expensive ingredients, but I was very excited to try it out. I have a dry skin type, but time to time evem the most dry skin needs a special care, especially when the weather is hot and sunny. The cleanser was formulated for normal and combined skin types but it is good enough for sensitive skin as well, because it doesn't dry the skin. I still prefer to use a little bit  of moisturizer after I wash my face, but even if I skip this step my skin doesn't feel tight and uncomfortable. 

There are many nice ingredients in this product I've never seen before in a cleanser such as lotus blossom and a bamboo extract, both of them help to maintain natural PH balance of the skin. Provitamin B5 together with our favorite well known glycerin prevents the loss of the moisture from the skin. The scent of the cleanser is very nice and mild, it is something between wooden and floral fragrance, I like it a lot.

I really like to use this gel on a daily basis, it does not dry or irritates it and I just love how fresh and clean the skin feels after the wash. Balea Refreshing Cleansing Gel retails for 0,95€ (a little bit more than $1) and you`ll receive 150 ml of this product for the price. It is the best and the cheapest washing gel I ever tried in my life, so I definitely recommend you to give this cleanser a try. See you all soon!

What is your favorite cleansing gel at the moment?

Balea Eye Makeup Remover Pads Oil-Free | Review

Balea Eye Makeup Remover Pads Oil-free Review liz breygel beauty blogger buy online
Balea Eye Makeup Remover Pads Oil-free Review liz breygel beauty blogger buy online

My all time favorite way to remove makeup, especially eye makeup is to simply to wash it away. I don`t really care if soap is drying my skin, but I don`t the smell and residue that makeup remover leaves on my skin. But recently I had an opportunity to try out Balea Augen Make-up Entfernerpads ölfrei or an Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover by a very famous European brand Balea, so let me share my little review and impressions on this product. 

Balea Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover comes in a simple plastic container, which I don`t find very comfortable, because it broke on the very next day when I lightly pressed it, but I know it was my fault so I don`t blame the brand :) It contains 50 very thin cotton pads, which are generously soaked in a special oil free remover. It has a very soft and gentle formula, it does not leave any unnecessary residue on the skin and has an amazing fragrance. The skin feels absolutely clean and fresh, it removes even the heavy smokey makeup, that I love to wear even on a daily basis.

It is super fast and easy to use this makeup removing pads, they are already prepared for usage, so all you need to do is gently run the pad all over your eyes, face and neck and you are ready for sleep. Balea Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover has everything I ever needed from a good makeup remover, it retails for 095€ at the moment and you can buy it at any DM drugstore market in Europe. This product is perfect for any skin type, especially for oily and acne prone skin, but my dry skin was very satisfied as well! 

Lots of love,

Hello my beauties, how are you doing lately? The weather outside is getting better and better each day, even thought we had a hail few days ago, so I`m feeling great! Especially because today I want to show you and share the first impressions on the skin care products by the famous European brand Balea. This is a very popular drugstore brand and I had a few products by Balea in the past and even talked about them on my blog (here), so I was super excited to show you everything I got. So let us begin ;)

So the very first product I want to talk about is Balea Flower Frost Body Lotion from a limited winter edition. I`m not a huge fan of rose fragrance in beauty products, but I almost don`t feel it in this lotion, unlike a sweet fruity aroma of passion fruit, it is divine. Even though Frost Flower is a winter body lotion, the texture of the product is pretty light and even a little bit runny. It makes my skin silky and lightly moisturized, so I think I`ll be using it in the summer with pleasure. Unfortunately, I haven`t found a link on the official Balea site on this product, probably because it was a limited addition.

The next product is a Balea Handcreme 2in1 Pflege & Maske mit Macadamia - Nussöl - it is a heavy moisturizing hand cream and mask with an oil of macadamia nut. I was not expecting it will be so nourishing, there is a huge amount of the macadamia seed oil in this cream, I even pretend to use it in winter, when I struggle with a dry skin on my knees, elbows and feet. The product has a very pleasant scent as well, but it takes quite a time to absorb into the skin.

Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel is an everyday washing gel for a normal and mixed skin type. It has an extract of lotus and bamboo, which helps to keep a natural balance of the moisture in the skin. I also found a Citric Acid in the list of the ingredients, it helps to clean the clogged pores and black heads, preventing the appearance of the new ones. I`m very excited to try it out, hope it will not dry out my skin.

The Balea Pflegendes Gesichtswasser or simply a Toner by Balea, is a product I already had in the past. It has no alcohol or ethanol, so even a people with a very sensitive or acne prone skin can use it on a daily basis. It has a very light and sweet scent and I love to use it as a makeup remover, because it gently and  thoroughly removes the residue of a makeup and oil from the skin, without drying or irritating it. I also use it after the facial mask or right after I wash my face, to help my favorite facial cream absorb deeply into the skin. 

The next four items I want to talk about are four different face mask by Balea. I really love treating my skin with mask, I always forget to apply them on though :) I got the one with Lavender - Lavendelmousse Maske, as I understand it suppose to calm down the irritation and heal the skin; the one with Vanilla and Raspberry - Himbeer Vanille Maske, it has an extract of shea butter, so it should moisturize the skin and prevent the dryness; Totes Meer Maske or Dead Sea Mask with a salt and huge amount of useful minerals, it removes the dead skin cells and opens the pores, this one I used already and I really loved it, even though it gave my skin a burning sensation (just a little bit), I think because of the sea salt. And the fourth facial mask is Feuchtigkeitsmaske or a Moisturizing Mask, with a thermal water and a sea weed. All the masks are vegan, there are two masks in one pack, each has 8 g / 0,0.28oz, but you can use one bag three times, because this quantity is enough for three faces :)

The next two items I pretend to settle in my bag, because I know I will always need them close to me in the summer. It is a small travel sized care cream and a lip balm, I haven`t found the links to these products, but I really loved them both. Fresh citrus scent and a nice moisturizing abilities, it is everything I need at the moment. And just a few little words about the Balea Badesalz Sanfte Erholung ( Bath Salt Jasmine & Lilly) and a Balea Badeperlen Tiefe Entspannung (Bath Pearls Black Orchid and Vanilla). Both products meant to deeply relax, calm down and satisfy our noses, because they have a very strong and sweet scent. 

And, finally, the very last, but not least product in my today`s haul is Balea Augen Make-up Entfernerpads ölfrei, it is an oil free cotton pads, which help to remove the eye makeup without any difficulties. I`m sorry that my post was so huge today, usually I`m a little bit less eloquent, but I hope you lied it. Stay tuned to see the detailed review of the products from my Huge Drugstore Haul post, talk to you very soon :*

Lots of love,

Balea Young Skin Care | Review

Balea Young Mattierendes Make up & Balea Aktivierende Augenpflege balea dm cosmetics blogger review

Hi, dear ladies. Today I`m going to do a very quick review of my Balea skin care products. I was so happy when I knew that  all products by Balea are vegan. Hope this post will be interesting for you.

Balea Young Mattierendes Make up
40 ml 

The first product, that I got is a creamy foundation from Balea Young seria. It comes in two shades - 01 - natural and  02 - beige. I really didn`t like to use this foundation cream. I don`t see those magical effects, which are described on Balea site. They say that Balea Young seria is antibacterial and prevents irritation. Also it gives matte finish look, but this products even didn`t absorbs in my skin. I bought beige colour, but it looks like orange on my skin. Texture looks very watery and leaves sticky feeling on my skin. But, it is just my opinion.

Balea Aktivierende Augenpflege - under eye cream
15 ml 

And the second product  is under eye cream Balea Aktivierende Augenpflege, which I really like. It is not a cream, more like a gel with very light formula. Especially this gel will be useful for people, who have dark circles around your eyes, or this zone is very dry. It was ophthalmologically tested, so will be suitable for people, who wears circle lenses. I`m using it twice per day - in the morning and before to sleep and already forgot about dryness. The biggest advantage of Balea Young cream is SP filter, because we all know how important is to protect our gentle skin from severe sun.
