[sponsored] Absolute NY – skin and foot care products

Good evening everyone,

today i have another post for you about a few of the Absolute New York skin care products.

If you have question please feel free to ask them in the comments.

A big thank you to Absolute New York for sponsoring the products so I can test and review them for you.

Besides the face brightening essence masks, the 24k glow gold gel face masksoil control tissues and heel patches – Absolute New York also offers make-up cleansing tissues, cooling eye pads and a great exfoliating foot mask which I would like to review today.

I received the following:

  • make-up cleansing tissues – A823 green tea (33 wipes) ~4$
  • make-up cleansing tissues – AT010 fresh aloe (10 wipes) ~2,50$
  • cooling eye pads – AEP24 orange (16 pads) ~5$
  • cooling eye pads – AEP22 aloe (16 pads) ~5$
  • exfoliating foot mask – A610 one size (1 foot mask) ~8$

Let’s start with the make-up cleansing tissues – A823 green tea, which I got in a big pack. The feeling on the skin and the smell of the wipes are pretty nice. They feel gentle and do not irritate my skin. Usually some make-up wipes tend to do that to my skin, but these are pretty nice.


In general these powerful yet gentle, pre-moistened, make-up remover wipes use an emulsion of natural botanicals to break down even the most stubborn formulas, while eliminating impurities for visibly softened, cleansed, and refreshed complexion. Especially the smaller pack is perfect if you are on-the-go. Great for a perfect pick-me-up any time of day.

The make-up cleansing tissues – AT010 fresh aloe feel especially gentle and calming. I tested them on very hot and sunny days, knowing that aloe is a great treatment for sun burned skin.



The cooling eye pads – AEP24 orange and AEP22 aloe look very cute. I love the packaging and design on the pads and it is very convenient that they are packed individually. A small tip, put 2 pads in the fridge before opening them for use. Revitalize. Refresh. Soothe. Absolute! Eye Pads provide instant relief to tired, puffy eyes. Look and feel awake as these specially formulated pre-moistened pads infused with botanicals and Vitamins, restore moisture and suppleness in the eye area.



Now to my absolute favorite product! The exfoliating foot mask – A610 one size is one of a kind. When I used to live in Japan I always saw the commercials and ads for exfoliating food masks like these.
The mask from Absolute New York combines natural botanical acids and extracts from Lemon, Papaya, Apple and Orange for a revitalizing treatment that will gradually remove calluses for visibly smoother heels and feet.


key ingredients:

Alcohol, Water, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Isopropyl Alcohol, Urea, Glycolic Acid, Betaine, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Salicylic Acid, Triclosan, Menthol, Disodium EDTA, Apple Extract, Lemon Extract, Orange Extract, Papaya Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Fragrance, Tocopheryl Acetate



how to use:

  • prepare and clean your feet
  • apply the mask and leave it on for 60-90 minutes
  • thoroughly rinse your feet with water and dry them off
  • calluses start peeling within 4-7 days of application
  • do not further pick at or exfoliate skin
  • the complete process of peeling and leaving you with baby bottom soft feet takes around 1 to 1 and a half weeks


For me it was the first time to try an exfoliating mask and I was very surprised about the process. I left it on for 2 hours and was really excited. The ingredients didn’t irritate my skin at all. The packaging is very cute, it has little green feet on the clear plastic bag. If you need to move while having the bags on your feet you should me careful. At my apartment we have wooden floor so I slipped a few times. Make sure to walk slowly and get a hold of the walls or something^^

Which of these products interests you the most? Have you tried any of these? What can you recommend?

[Review] Florena

Good evening everyone,

today I would like to talk about some products by Florena, a german cosmetic brand, that sells mainly skin care products.

For a while now I am searching for a good face creme that will hydrate and also nurture my skin. I have a combination of normal and dry skin, as well as sensitive skin. I tried a few brands so far but none of them satisfied me.

Since I recently tried the make-up wipes and was pretty happy with those, I thought I would try their face cremes as well.

I bought their night creme with olive oil and used it the same day right after I finished cleaning my face. Sadly I had an immediate reaction to it. My skin burned and turned red, which was I rinsed it off after around 5 minutes after application.

I was also very intrigued by their creme with green tea and rice powder, but probably won’t buy it due to my reaction to their oder product.

Do you have any experience with Florena products? Do you might know why my skin reacted this way?

Let me know in the comments, also if you have any recommendations.

HAULy friday – seventeen – Rituals

Hey everyone,

today  I have a different HAULy friday for you.


After I already bought one of their shower foams a while ago and since I loved it so much I decided to visit my local Rituals Shop. I wanted to try their Sakura (cherry blossom) range so bad, but since they are not really cheap I was hesitant to buy more.

Anyway, that day I went in knowing this could be dangerous haha but I still did and started sniffing around. The sales lady came running and went through the whole Cherry Blossom Ritual with me. She wet my hands, used the hand oil, the peeling, the shower foam and later the body cream. I was in heaven!

I smelled incredibly nice and actually wanted to lick myself haha

Oh well, sold. I decided against one of their big packs, which included 200 ml Zensation (shower foam), 150 ml Rice Scrub (hand scrub), 100 gr Sakura Scrub (body scrub) & 70 ml Magic Touch (body creme). Why?
Simply because I wanted the the full sized products.

So here is what I bought.


Left top to bottom right …


Sakura Scrub
Body Peeling
18,50 euro / 375 gr


Magic Touch
Body Creme
15,00 euro / 200 ml


Shower Foam
8,00 euro / 200 ml


Tea Time Candle
Green Tea
17,50 euro / 290 gr

candle in action^^



All together I paid around 60 euro, but it was totally worth it!

I used all of these products a few times already and I really love them.
Because of their price they are for sure no everyday items, but I always use them when I am super stressed or had a shitty day/week.

So I am sure these will last me a while.

The peeling is really nice, you don’t need much but it gives you really soft skin. In combination with the shower foam and body creme it is even better. For me this is a little luxury treat once in a while, to pamper myself and feel good. Mostly after I used them, I will light the candle and relax watching my favorite shows. The whole Ritual is very calming.

So far I also bought the Shower Foam from Trees, which is a Douglas brand I think, but I mostly don’t use it. I liked the smell at the beginning, but it is kind of too strong for me now.

Kneipp also came out with two different shower foams. But more on that later^^

I will definitely re-buy those products and really hope they will never discontinue them. I am a big fan of these.

Have you ever tried Rituals products? I know they sell a lot of different products and scents, also Make-up, but since I almost never use Make-up anymore I was not really paying attention to that area of the shop^^
They also sell home goods like towels, room scents and clothes. I know right now they have an offer where you get a free Hammam beach towel if you buy things over the value of 40 euro.

Let me know which Ritual products you like. I am curious to read your opinion.

Have a relaxed long weeked (if Monday is a holiday for you).
