Nivea 3 in 1 micellar cleansing water for all skin types

The most annoying thing and also ironicly the most satisfying is the proccess  of removing make up after a long day. My relationship with cleansing milks and all sorts of other products has never been a good one. And believe me I have tried a LOT them! They always irritated my skin and after, I had the stickiest, awfull feeling on my face. I don't know what brought me to cleansing waters but now I can't live without them. Some are good, some can also be bad but the Nivea 3 in 1 micellar cleansing water is my favourite. It doesn't irritate my skin or makes it red. My skin feels clean after using it and it takes off all of my make up. After using the cleansing water I usualy use a cleanser also but that is just beacuse after a long day of my skin being exposed to dirt and germs, I think it deserves a second cleanse.  I use two cotton pads for my eyes.I soak them in the product and leave them on my eyes for a fey seconds. The product itself starts disolving make up, I wipe my eyes and almost my whole eye make up is gone. Quick and easy!

This is what I used before discovering the Nivea one!

Steamed rum & chocolate pudding

 
steaming bowl from Dr. Oetker available on Amazon
Ingredients:
- 200 g dark chocolate
- 140 g melted butter
-125g brown sugar
- 8 eggs
- 2 table spoons of rum
- 120 g unpilled ground almonds

Recipe:
Firstly melt the chocolate over the hot water. In a separate bowl mix butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy, add egg yolks and mix. Now blend both of the liquids together (the chocolate part and the creamy egg part) for 20 minutes with the proccessor. One by one add ginger, an orange pill, candid orange, almonds, rum, and crumbs. Mix egg whites until the right consistency and slowly add it into the other mixture. Now it's time to butter the steaming bowl and use flour to prevent the sticking. Fill the steaming bowl with the dough and cook it for 70 minutes in the steaming bath (the instructions on using the steaming bowl come with the bowl). Before serving, add whipped cream and sprinkle it with pistachios.

A spring thing #1

1. Spring time means that I start to add some colour into my daily routine. I love wearing black and adding bright lips to my look makes a big difference. It brightens up my face, also I don't have to make an effort with my eye make-up! I like to keep it natural. My favourite type of everday lip product is the Revlon colourburst balm stain or the Revlon colourburst matte balm, I like the intensity of the colour and also how easy they are to apply. I still didn't get my fingers on the new lacquer series but I can't wait to try it out. I also own a lip pencil from Collistar (the brown one on the picture), I like it as well but beacuse of the price I preffer the Revlon ones. 
2. My one spring scent that I wanted to mention in this post is the Oh Lola by Marc Jacobs, I got it tottaly by coincidence and really liked the smell. It is very spring like and sweet. 
3. I can't describe my love for Essie nail polishes, they are great quality, beautiful shades and the brush is just wide enough to cover my whole nail, so that I don't have to apply it twice. My favourite shade for spring is a new find of mine and it is called Big Spender. It is probably my favourite shade from the ones that I own.
This is just one of my favourite dresses, the other ones will be in my next spring thing part, so stay tuned!
