My boyfriend was on a work trip to Berlin, so he asked me if I needed some beauty products. I’m always curious about their drugstore make-up and that’s basically what I wanted to get. Then, he decided to get something extra, as per usual and here’s my Berlin beauty haul.
Hair and body products
I love Kneipp‘s shower products because they’re natural, they smell amazing and they’re very gentle. My boyfriend found a set of three shower creams and he picked it up for me. The scents are Fig Milk and Argan Oil, Almond Milk and Almond Oil, Litsea Cubeba and Lemon.
How cute are these mini Roger & Gallet soaps? I love their body lotions and the soaps smell gorgeous as well, they’re in Green Tea and Bois d’Orange.
There are two body creams, the first one is from Rituals and it’s their Honey Touch Indian Rose and Himalaya Honey Body Cream. Everybody raves about it, I love Rituals products and I’m very excited to try this one. The second one comes from DM, a drugstore that has its own brand called Alverde and it has products free from mineral oils. parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrance and artificial colourants at a more affordable price. The body butter that I wanted to try is for very dry skin and is the Macadamia and Shea Butter one. Everybody says it smells delicious.
Another brand from DM is Balea and when I learnt that they had a Professional haircare line, I decided to try their Volume Shampoo.
Who doesn’t love lipsticks? Most of the ones above look like ”my colours” except for one, the last one on the right, it’s from p2 and the shade is 059 Copacabana. It’s a gorgeous coral, the only problem is that I don’t wear coral, I don’t really think it suits me but I’m curious to see if I could actually make it work. The first on the left is from Maybelline‘s new Rebel Bouquet ColourSensational series and it’s in 342 Mauve Mania. It looks gorgeous in the bullet and I can’t wait to try it. Then there are two shades from Catrice‘s Luminous Lips Lipstick in the shades 100 Me, My Macaron & I and 120 Wood Rose Propose?. Another two shades from Essence Longlasting Lipstick: 06 Barely There and 07 Natural Beauty.
Catrice has a dupe for the famous Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector and I’ve been wanting to get my hands on it for a very long time. The shade of their Beautifying Lip Smoother that I got is 010 Sweet Caramel. Another balm-y product from Catrice is the Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm and my shades are 010 Rose & Woody and 040 My Cherry Berry. I pretty much use two shades of lip products in different forms, I know…
Apparently the Essence LipLiner is a very popular product because I was hoping to get at least three shades but my boyfriend found only one – 06 Satin Mauve.
It wouldn’t be me if I don’t try to get new concealers. There are two here and both are from Catrice, the first one is their Camouflage Cream and the second one is the Allround Coverstick. I wasn’t sure which shades would be good on me, so it was quite the task for my poor boyfriend to do. Hopefully, these would fit me.
From the eyeshadows that I wanted, they had only the Essence I Love Nude in 05 My Favourite Tauping.
If you’ve seen my London hauls, you’ve probably noticed that I got about 10 nail polishes, so I decided to limit myself to just three this time…plus one ”treatment”. I’m a nude nail lover, so I had to have Essence The Nudes in 03 I’m Lost in You but needed some brighter colours for the upcoming warmer months. This is when Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer in 82 A Gallon of Melon and Catrice Luxury Nudes in 08 Little Dose of Rose come.
The last product is the only one that I’ve already tried and I’m loving it! It’s from Essence and is the Nail Art Express Dry Drops. I think I might do a separate review on it because it’s cheap and gets the job done in less than a minute.
Have you tried any of these products and would you suggest some other drugstore beauty items from Germany?
