My name is Zandra and i'm an impulsive buyer

Mades Signature Series Organic Shampoo

When it comes to my hair and my skin i try as much as possible to use organic or natural products. So when i saw this product range, so happily colored and with the word organic yelling on the bottle i knew i had to try it. I've been using it in the last weeks and it's much better than i expected but not as good to make me try it again.

Cand vine vorba despre parul meu sau corp incerc pe cat posibil sa folosesc produse organice sau naturale. Asa ca atunci cand am vazut aceste produse asa vesel colorate si avand scris "organic" mare pe ambalaj am stiu ca trebuie sa le incerc. Am folosit samponul de cateva saptamani si este mult mai bun decat ma asteptam dar nu atat de bun incat sa-l mai cumpar o data.


99.42% of the ingredients are from natural origin / 99, 42% din ingrediente sunt de origine naturala.
10% of the ingredients are from organic farming / 10% din ingrediente provin din culturile organice.
Perfume is subtle / Parfumul este foare subtil.
It makes as much foam as a normal shampoo / Face spuma ca un sampon normal.
Your hair can be easily brush / Nu incurca parul.


The small pomp that has to be pressed more than 5 times to get a sufficient quantity of product / Pompita care trebuie apasata de cel putin 5 ori ca sa obtii o cantitate suficienta de produs
Apricot perfume which i don't like / Parfumul de caise care mie nu-mi place.
It does not make your hair shine / Nu face parul sa luceasca.
Expensive / Pret ridicat (aprox 27 de lei pentru 200 ml)

Will i buy it again: No

To Cajun Shrimp or not

I'm declaring Cajun Shrimp one of the most amazing colors of this summer. I'm sooo in love with it. I'm sure you can see why. A vibrant and playful color that makes your world spin around.Yay!

And if you don't want to really spend a lot of money on OPI ( expensive) i present you its "hell so much cheaper" sister: Farmasi no 74

Amazing right? So i got Farmasi yesterday for 5 Ron and OPI for 37 Ron.

And the colors are so much alike.

Now what i noticed is that it takes  3 layers for the OPI to perfectly color the nail while for Farmasi only 2. But OPI applies so much better than Farmasi.

So let the party begin! :)

Where do you get your make-up products from?

Well i like shopping..and i like finding deals and when it comes to find the cheapest price of a product well i can say i rule :).  Now i do have some sites i check regularly for deals or just for a relaxing drooling session at the end of the day.

So here are some of my sites: - this one is awesome. It has a lot of brands and i did ordered from them a couple of times (Mac and Too Faced products). It takes around 3 weeks for products to come but i've never been disappointed. It is based in USA. - you can find NYX cosmetics and Crown brushes. Fewer brands most of them NYX, Crown, Sigma, Japonesque, La femme, MAC, theBalm. It is based in UK. - almost same brands as They have also Everyday minerals products and ecoTools brushes  - everyone knows this site so no introduction needed :) - Romanian blog from where i got some NYX lip products. You have to wait a long time as she place the order once a month but if the products are in stock it goes smooth and fast. - I got a Revlon foundation at half of the normal price :). You can find Wet&Wild products, Gosh, Maybelline etc and the site is updated almost daily. Romanian blog. - again a Romanian blog. Never ordered but i follow the updates daily :)

And you? What are your shopping sites?

NYX soft matte lip cream

I love matte lipsticks so when i heard about the new NYX soft matte lip cream i knew i had to test it. So i ordered one which is Istanbul, a pretty pink doll like shade. 

Imi plac la nebunie rujurile mate iar atunci cand am auzit de NYX soft matte lip cream am stiut ca trebuia sa-l testez. Asa ca am comandar nuanta Istanbul, un roz frumos putin doll like.

Now i need to say that i find the packaging so adorable. It's small and pink and easy to carry with you everywhere.

Trebuie sa spun ca ambalajul este adorabil. Este mic si roz si usor de purtat dupa tine peste tot.

The actual product is like a cream and it smells so good you might be tempted to eat it :).  You do need to moisturize the lips before applying it cause otherwise the aspect will be a bit cakey. 

Produsul in sine are consistenta unei creme si miroase atat de frumos incat ai fi tentata sa-l mananci. Trebuie insa ca buzele sa fie hidratate inainte de aplicare pentru nu avea un aspect cakey.

And how it looks on my lips.

Si cum arata pe buzele mele.

Lazy Sunday on-line ZARA shopping

When you get bored staying inside you end-up by shopping online:

Cand te plictisesti stand in casa ajungi sa faci cumparaturi on-line :)

I knew about this online shop but it's the first time when i buy something from them: Kurtmann. Prices are ok, a bit more expensive than Miniprix but for sure a lot cheaper than the Mall shops.

Stiam de acest magazin on-line de mult dar este prima data cand comand de la ei. Preturile sunt ok, putin mai mari decat in Miniprix dar cu siguranta mai ieftine decat in magazinele din Mall.

Best face cream ever

When you are almost 28 years old (sniff) using every day a face cream becomes a must. I have a combination skin that is most of the time dehydrated and it's really hard to find a good face cream because most of those made for an oily/combination skin are almost powerless when it comes to hydrate and those made for dry skin are way too oily for my skin.

Cand ai aproare 28 de ani (sniff) folosirea zilnica a unei creme pentru fata e un must. I'm un ten mixt si deshidratat in ceea mai mare parte a timpului si este foarte greu sa gasesc  o crema buna pentru ca cele mai multe creme pentru ten gras/mixt sunt ineficiente cand este vorba de hidratare, iar cele pentru ten uscat sunt prea grase pentru tenul meu.

So after years of searching something to make me smile i found the best face cream ever: natural Shea butter. I use it every night before sleep as a face cream and for the eyes zone and it's incredible. You might think it's too heavy for an oily/combination skin but it's not true. It gets absorbed while you sleep and in the morning the skin looks awesome. It's noncomedogenic unlike the cocoa butter, it helps your skin regain elasticity and smile again. 

Dupa ani de cautare a cremei perfecte am gasit cea mai buna crema: unt de Shea natural. Il folosesc in fiecare seara inainte de culcare pe post de crema pentru fata si zona ochilor si este incredibila. Ati putea crede ca este prea grea pentru un ten gras/mixt dar nu este adevarat. Se absoarbe in timpul somnului iar dimineata pielea arata superb. Este noncomedogenic spre deosebire de untul de cacao, ajuta pielea sa-si recapte elasticitatea si sa zambeasca iar.

I'm using Shea Butter from Now Solutions but any other brand should be the same.

Folosesc Shea Butter de la Now Solutions dar orice alt brand ar trebui sa fie la fel.

And i've been using it for body too and a small amount goes for a long time. It has a neutral smell and a buttery color.

L-am folosit si pentru corp si o cantitate mica iti ajunge pentru mult time. Are un miros neutru si o culoare asemanatoare untului.

So why use those face creams with a lot of weird and unhealthy ingredients when you have this awesome option? Try it and you're going to feel the difference right away.

De ce sa folosim acele creme care contin atat de multe ingrediente ciudate si nesanatoase cand avem solutia asta? Incercati-l si o sa simtiti diferenta imediat.

I'm a FAntastic trender

I'm sure all of you know about the new campaign Word of Mouth Fa Nutriskin. I've been selected to test two of their Nutriskin rage products ( body lotion and deodorant) of my choice. What i've got? Fa Nutriskin Firming Body Lotion and Fa Nutriskin roll-on. 

Sunt sigura ca toate ati auzit despre noua campanie Word of Mouth Fa Nutriskin. Am fost si eu selectata sa testez doua produse din gama Nutriskin (o lotiune de corp si un deodorant) la alegere. Ce am ales? Fa Nutriskin Firming Body Lotion si Fa Nutriskin varianta roll-on.

Let's start testing! Yay.
