7th Heaven - Dead Sea Sheet Mask

Hi guys,

I've been searching a lot and found some different kind of facial masks, which I'll review here on my blog in the next months - as they are pretty much!:) Today I'd like to show you the "Dead Sea Sheet Mask" from the brand called 7th Heaven:


This mask should be used once a week to keep up your facial skin smooth and rehydrated. While the dead sea salt  is rich in minerals, the algaes are high in nutrients and have a super detox power, which improves the health of your heart too! (but of course for heart benefits, you should add spirulina or other algae extract capsules to your healthy diet!).


Step by Step - how to use this sheet mask:

1. Cleanse your skin with lukewarm water (if you've worn makeup - use makeup remover before turning to step 1!)
2. Apply - gently open the mask and apply it on your face, that's the ONLY disadvantage I've to mention: the size of the mask! - it's simply too big, I guess it has been used a smaller version for the cover itself - as the mask doesn't fit well.
3. Instant boost - I just can agree, your facial skin feels refreshed after few seconds already and you can feel a comfortable cooling on your skin.
4. Peel it off after 5-10min. (I've peeled it off after 8 min.)
5. Rinse with water and dry your facial skin
6. Feel fresh - for more hydration you can use a facial serum or gel


Ok I've not the biggest face BUT I'm not one of the person with pea sized face - so I guess, it has been made for giants:)

What's your opinion?! Did you have ever tried out one of 7th Heaven masks - especially the sheet masks? Please let me know, what's your experience:)

Yours,

3 PAULY - Red Lentil Fusilli with Rucola & Cheese*

Hi everyone,

I've been trying out the last few days some of the gluten-/lactose free pasta range from 3 Pauly.


This time, I'd like to review the Red Lentil Fusilli pasta* - which are 100% made from red lentils, yep - no flour or other ingredients just red lentils:

3 Pauly Red Lentil Fusilli*- 3.49€ (250g)

The bright red-orange colour makes any kind of pasta dish really special and fun to serve, especially if you've kids or for us who eat almost twice a week pasta and would like to have a slightly different type of pasta dish the next time. This one will make your pasta pot even more delicious, due to the nice taste and shade:


Boil the pasta between 8-10 minutes with fav' vegetables and your fav' spices.


I've served my ready to eat pasta with some dry thyme and fresh Traungold cheese (also similar Tilsiter cheese).

Opinion: 

I really like the quick boiling time (8-10min) and that you can't really taste the difference between a pasta made of wheat and this one made of red lentils. Although it has a slightly aftertaste it's now one of my fav' from the whole 3 Pauly pasta range - and healthier in compare to traditional pasta!:)

Did you've ever tried one of 3 Pauly's glutenfree and lactose free pasta? - If not, you should give it a try - it's the perfect way to enjoy fresh homemade pasta dishes if you've really gluten-/lactose intolerance or if you just prefer sometimes (like me:)) a healthier dish.

Yours,

APEIRON NATURAL CARE - ROSE WATER VITAL SPRAY & TONIC

Hi everyone,

well Winter doesn't quit yet BUT let's hope, it gets better the next few days or weeks:) This rose water vital spray & tonic, which I've started to use for my daily facial care routine in January helps me to avoid unnecessary break-outs and leaves my skin moisturized:

 Apeiron Natural Care - Rose Water Vital Spray & Tonic - 8.95€

The rose water vital spray & tonic is great for your face as well decollete. Well if you'd like to know how much and how I use it - usually I spray 2-3 times (sometimes 3-4 times) in rotated movement all over my face and after that I gently massage it into my facial skin. Especially I massage under my eyes, by the chin area I usually blend it down to the decollete with a smooth movement - if you know what I mean:)


It's so hydrating and calming, that I sometimes leave the moisturizer after I used it.


Ingredients:

Aqua, Rosa damascena extract, Geraniol*, Citronellol*. * from natural essential oils  

It will last you for about 2-2.5 months, if you're using the 100ml spray like me during your morning and night routine. 

The rose extract helps to refresh, calm and to clear your facial skin, it avoids imperfections (like the small nasty pimples we all know:)). Also I found, that my facial skin looks more bright even without makeup, after I've been using it for a month - in fact it tones my face.


Due to its calming effect, it's perfect to use during hot summer days, where your skin tends to get irritated and as well as the lovely fresh rose scent will give you the extra pamper feeling. Plus it's alcohol-free, which means "whohooo" for all sensitive skin types (including me:)) no more red irritations!

So I've not much more to say about this facial/decollete tonic rose spray from Apeiron, which I got as a gift, a very good christmas gift - thanks again sis':)

Yours,
