Hello my beautiful souls,
I return to talk to you about the remaining products that the Korean company Elizavecca sent me a few weeks ago. I saw that you appreciated the first post and that you are interested in this brand and these products so I hurried up to finish my second post. Just like the precedent post I will start talking about them one by one.
Just as the name says, the main ingredients of this product are the snail slime filtered water and 24K gold extract. It also contains witch hazel extract, grapefruit extract and colloidal gold. This product is recommended for tired and dull skin that lacks vitality and due to all those ingredients it offers elasticity and shine to the skin. The ingredients have also well-known anti-wrinkle properties. It should be applied after a normal cleansing routine. You should retrieve the mask from the pack and spread it on the face, after you make sure it is well adhered to your face you must leave it for 15 to 20 minutes and relax while doing so. After this interval you may remove the mask and let it seep into the skin the remaining essence or massage your face lightly. After this treatment you should be reborn in a noble skin.
Personal experience: The first thing that I noticed is that just as the manufacturer states the mask is well drenched into a good amount of essence. A thing that created me some problems is that I found it a little bit difficult to properly apply it to the face due to the incisions made on the boards of the tissue. It had the tendency to move and I tried to lay it. After the application I noticed a softer and hydrated skin but I can’t say that I noticed my skin glowing or having less wrinkles, although it is true that the producer recommends using it 4-5 times a week in order to see the results described above. I also have to say that I had the skin somewhat irritated and after this treatment the irritation was calmed.
The first thing I have noticed when seeing this product was the cute packaging, the white and refreshed piggy face that hides behind a dark and dirty mask is a transfiguration of what this product should do. Inside the box I found a tube with 150 ml of a translucent liquid that contains small rolling particles. On the internet and on the site of this brand unfortunately there are no information on English about this product so I had to rely only on the instructions on the packaging in order to use this product. For the description of this product I will share with you what I can read on the packaging that is the fact that is a peeling gel enriched with vitamins for a cleansing, refreshing and brightening effect. It contains Chamomile flower extract, Snow Lotus flower extract, Brown Alga extract, Citrus fruit oil, castor oil and Lily bulb extract. Thanks to all these ingredients and to the fact that it contains rolling particles this product eliminates dead skin cells and cleanses the pores. The directions for use indicate to take a proper amount of product and spread it evenly throughout the entire face then massage it gently and when the gel is tight it should be rinsed with tepid water.
Personal experience: I have to say that just warm water it isn’t enough to rinse it otherwise one might need very much time to do it. I recommend using a wet towel to rub and remove the gel once it becomes tight. I also recommend to apply it on small areas that need treatment and not on the entire face otherwise you might have problems removing it. That being said, once removed, I noticed a very clean face and as you might see in the photo below my pores are clean and the black heads were removed. I have to say that I prefer this product to clean my pores, it is better than a black carbon mask in my opinion.
The last product that I will talk to you about is a true innovation, this product is both a mask pack and a bubble wash at the same time. The Hell Pore Bubble Blackboom Charcoal pore pack is a cleansing product that contains 4% charcoal and cleans your pores in a bubble wash. It is a low irritation foam pack indicated for oily skin to remove pore sebum and skin keratin. It also contains panthenol and tocopheryl acetate to help moisturize skin. Other ingredients are: Papaya fruit extract, Rosemary extract, Chamomile extract, and Soapberry peel extract. It can be used on morning and evening by applying a proper amount of product to whole face except around eyes. After 5 minutes it can be removed with warm water by massaging in circular motions to form a rich bubble wash. It should be washed thoroughly with tepid water and after this it is possible to continue with the normal skin care routine.
Personal experience: I like this product because after using it my skin is very clean. It is similar to a soap wash in results and finish. I noticed a strong degreasing effect that is why although the producer indicates this product as appropriate to all skin types, I would recommend it mostly for oily skin. Afterwards, when using also a good hydration cream I noticed a very beautiful, bright, soft and clean skin. Another thing that I like very much is the fresh perfume of this product.

Elizavecca sent me these products for testing but this did not alter in any way my opinion. This is an honest and objective review.

Ciao belle anime,
È da un po’ che non vi parlo di qualcosa che mi piace a tal punto da diventare un'ossessione. Io amo la poesia e amo la musica perciò le canzoni che coniugano questi due elementi mi affascinano. Oggi pensavo di parlarvi di una canzone uscita da poco, una canzone particolare per il modo in cui utilizza le metafore. Questa canzone si chiama "L'amore è" di Enrico Nigiotti ed è un splendido inno all'amore. La parte che mi piace di più è il modo in cui usa le metafore per descrivere questo sentimento talmente complesso, che spesso non basta una sola parola per definirlo. Quando ami diventi forte, diventi grande per la persona che ti corrisponde il sentimento e questa cosa Enrico Nigiotti l'ha espressa benissimo nella frase "l'amore è avere armi senza fare male" perché non c'è niente di meglio a dare ali, forza e coraggio ad una persona quanto l'amore. La frase "l'amore è solo carte da scoprire" mi fa venire in mente quanto sia imprevedibile questo sentimento e quanto possa essere bello scoprire sempre cose nuove nella persona amata. Mi piace particolarmente il modo in cui il cantautore ha descritto la sicurezza che l'amore possa ispirare ad una persona con la frase "proteggimi dall'alba di un futuro che non conosco".
Forse la metafora che mi piace di più è "l'amore è scarpe vecchie che non vuoi buttare" perché sintetizza in queste parole l'attaccamento e la forza di questo sentimento duraturo, a volte eterno.
Penso che anche voi concordate che il messaggio di questa canzone è che l'amore vuol dire fiducia, l'amore significa fidarsi, credere anche quando ci sono tante cose da cambiare, credere quando gli interessi cambiano e le persone cambiano, credere anche quando sembra che non ci sia più nulla.
Adesso vi lascio ascoltare questa canzone, fatemi sapere cosa ne pensate nei commenti qui sotto.
Baci e abbracci,

Hello to all you beautiful souls,
Today I will write about cosmetics. I have received a few weeks ago a pack from Elizavecca, a Korean cosmetic company. If you are interested to know more about the brand you can do it here, the site is in Korean and some English but with some help from google and your browser you can translate it in your language or English. After I have used the products in these weeks I decided to talk to you about a couple of those products.
Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic acid 97% serum
I will start with their company logo, the Witch Piggy. One might ask why is a pig their logo and why should I buy products from a company that uses this kind of logo but I remind you that a pig always has a white and fresh skin and this is also the purpose of this company. Many of their products have a whitening and refreshing effect. The story behind the Witch Piggy is that with her witchy powers and using only raw materials and in optimum conditions created products that could moisturize and give a glow to the skin so that all people could be equal. I will talk now about one of the Witch Piggy products and that is the Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic acid 97% serum. This product comes in a cute bottle and it contains 50 ml of a transparent rather liquid gel. It also has a validity of 12 months after its first use. The serum has a moisturizing effect due to its 97% hyaluronic acid component, it captures and continually diffuses water within the skin to restore its moisture balance and leave skin feeling soft and supple. Only moisturizing? NO! It also has a whitening and anti-wrinkles functionality. The product helps with the fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and uneven skin tone and promises to minimize enlarged pores. It should be used on morning and evening after a basic skin care routine. A few drops are enough and it should be applied on forehead, nose, cheeks, chin spot and massage it gently until it is fully absorbed. Avoid using it around the eyes and the producer advices against the use in cases of open wounds, eczema or dermatitis. In case of swelling, itching or stigmata the user is advised to consult a doctor. Suitable to all skin types.
Personal opinion: after using it daily for two weeks now I have noticed a softer and smoother skin. For the moment I haven’t noticed any anti-wrinkle effect. I noticed instead a more elastic skin.
Red Ginseng Deep Power Ringer mask pack
Now I will talk about one of my favorite products from this brand, that is this energizing tissue mask. The Deep Power Ringer mask pack is made of a dense fiber and high density cellulose sheet that has a great adhesion to the skin. The logo of this specific product is the Milky Piggy. Elizavecca produces this masks in 10 ten types, one for every skin problem and necessity: EGF DEEP power drip mask with proteins and amino acids for dry skin, MILK DEEP power drip mask for oily skin, VITA DEEP power drip mask for dull skin, Centela Asiatica deep power mask for a rough skin with calming effect, AQUA DEEP power drip mask with a hydrating effect, COLLAGEN DEEP power mask for a shiny skin effect and wrinkle improvement, TEA TREE DEEP power mask for soothing and skin barrier strengthening effect, FRUIT DEEP power drip mask excellent in dead skin and pores care, HONEY DEEP power drip mask to give nutrition and flexibility to the skin and last but not least the RED GINSENG DEEP power drip mask pack for tired skin that lacks vitality. I have tried this last mask pack and I have loved it. Now I want to say a few words about this product in general and then I will share also my personal experience. The ingredients of this mask pack are the red ginseng extract and coenzyme Q10 to give vitality, nutrition and increase elasticity to your skin. It also has a whitening and anti-wrinkle effect. After using this product you will notice a shinny and more vibrant skin.
How to use it: After your cleansing skin routine you may remove the sheet mask and apply it to your face. Make sure it fits your face and then relax and wait for 15 – 20 minutes. When the time is up, remove the mask with a simple gesture and use your finger tips to massage until the product is fully absorbed.
Personal opinion: After using this product I have noticed a fully and deeply hydrated skin that lasted until the next day. As you might also notice in the pictures below, my skin is radiant and glowing. It is redundant to say this again but I simply love, love, love this product.
Elizavecca sent me those products for testing but this did non alter in any way my opinion. This is a honest and objective review.

L'Oréal Revitalift laser x3 serum - REVIEW / L'Oréal Revitalift laser x3 siero - RECENSIONE / L'Oréal Revitalift laser x3 ser - EVALUARE
Salutare suflete frumoase,
Astazi revin cu o postare despre produse cosmetice. Produsul despre care vreau sa va vorbesc este serul anti-aging Revitalift x3 de la L’Oréal. In acest moment produsul este epuizat, asadar fac aceasta evaluare dupa o utilizare cotidiama pe o durata de mai bine de 3 luni de zile. Mentionez ca am cumparat acest produs cu banii mei iar scopul acestui post este impartasesc cu voi experienta mea. Mai jos voi enumera caracteristicile produsului din descrierea producatorului, parerea mea personala dar si cateva elemente pro si contra.
- Produsul se prezinta intr-un tub de sticla rosu semitransparent prin care puteti monitoriza cantitatea de produs
- Din descriere produsul reduce ridurile, compacteaza si netezeste pielea
- Contine Pro-Xilane, acid hialuronic si LHA
- Producatorul promite dupa o utlizare cotidiana o piele mai neteda si uniforma.
- Promite sa reduca ridurile si sa restranga porii.
- Pret intre 40 si 81 RON cu o validitate de 12 luni de la prima utilizare
Din experienta personala:
- Este suficienta o cantitate mica de produs pentru intreaga fata
- Are o consistenta destul de fluida si se absoarbe imediat
- Am constatat o piele mai neteda, fina, compacta si o culoare mai uniforma
- Din pacate ridurile mele au ramas tot acolo, poate a avut un efect asupra micilor riduri pe care nu le observ, dar daca nu le observ nu stiu cat ma intereseaza faptul ca actioneaza asupra lor :P
- Intentionez sa achizitionez din nou acest produs in viitor (nu foarte apropiat intrucat mai am alte produse de terminat)
- Se absoarbe repede si ofera o piele cu aspect uniform.
- Util toate tipologiilor de piele si varsta (desigur nu copiilor)
- Are un parfum delicat si o consistenta placuta
- Pretul destul de crescut
- Tubul nu permite utilizarea produsului pana la ultimul strop, cand am ajuns la ultimele straturi a trebuit sa scot pompa si sa adun de pe fund produs suficient pentru o alta saptamana de aplicari
Ciao belle anime,
Oggi torno con un post sui cosmetici. Il prodotto di cui voglio parlare è il siero anti-invecchiamento Revitalift x 3 di L'Oréal. In questo momento il prodotto è finito, quindi sto recensendo il prodotto dopo un utilizzo giornaliero per più di 3 mesi. Devo menzionare che ho comprato questo prodotto con i miei soldi e lo scopo di questo post è quello di condividere con voi la mia esperienza. Di seguito elencherò le caratteristiche del prodotto dalla descrizione del produttore, la mia opinione personale e alcuni pro e contro.
- Il prodotto si presenta in un tubo rosso semitrasparente attraverso il quale è possibile monitorare la quantità di prodotto
- Dalla descrizione del prodotto riduce le rughe, ridensifica e leviga la pelle
- Contiene Pro-Xilane, acido ialuronico e LHA
- Il produttore promette, dopo un uso quotidiano, una pelle più liscia e uniforme.
- Promette di ridurre le rughe e restringere i pori.
- Prezzo tra 40 e 81 RON con una validità di 12 mesi dal primo utilizzo
La mia esperienza personale
- Una piccola quantità di prodotto è sufficiente per l'intero viso
- Ha una consistenza abbastanza fluida e viene assorbito immediatamente
- Ho sentito la pelle più liscia, più fine, compatta e con un colore più uniforme
- Sfortunatamente le mie rughe sono ancora lì, forse ha un effetto sulle piccole rughe che non noto, ma se non le vedo non so quanto fossi interessata ad agire su di esse: P
- Ho intenzione di acquistare nuovamente questo prodotto in futuro (non uno molto ravicinato dato che ho altri prodotti da finire)
- Si assorbe rapidamente e dona alla pelle un aspetto uniforme.
- Adatto a tutte le tipologie di pelle ed età (ovviamente non bambini)
- Ha una delicata fragranza e una piacevole consistenza
- Il prezzo abbastanza alto
- Il tubo non consente l'utilizzo del prodotto fino all'ultima goccia, quando ho raggiunto gli ultimi strati ho dovuto rimuovere la pompa e raccogliere dal fondo del barattolo abbastanza prodotto per un'altra settimana di applicazioni
Hello to all you beautiful hearts,
Today I come back with a post about cosmetics. The product I want to talk about is L'Oréal's anti-aging Revitalift x 3 serum. At this moment the product is finished, so I'm reviewing the product after a daily use for more than 3 months. I must mention that I bought this product with my money and the purpose of this post is to share with you my experience. Below I will list the characteristics of the product from the manufacturer's description, my personal opinion and some pros and cons.
- The product comes in a semi-transparent red tube through which you can monitor the amount of product
- From the product description reduces wrinkles, redensifies and smoothes the skin
- Contains Pro-Xilane, hyaluronic acid and LHA
- The manufacturer promises, after daily use, smoother and more uniform skin
- It promises to reduce wrinkles and shrink pores
- Price between 40 and 81 RON with a validity of 12 months from the first use
My personal experience
- A small amount of product is sufficient for the entire face
- It has a fairly fluid consistency and is absorbed immediately
- I felt the skin smoother, finer, more compact and with a more uniform color
- Unfortunately my wrinkles are still there, maybe it has an effect on the small wrinkles that I can not see, but if I do not see them I do not know how I was interested in acting on them: P
- I'm going to buy this product again in the future (not very soon one since I have other products to finish)
- It absorbs quickly and gives the skin a uniform appearance
- Suitable for all skin types and ages (obviously not children)
- It has a delicate fragrance and a pleasant consistency
- The price quite high
- The tube does not allow the use of the product until the last drop, when I reached the last layers
- I had to remove the pump and collect from the bottom of the can enough product for another week of applications
