New Products I'm using aka Alverde Review

Again Alverde *gg* I'm in the process of checking out a lot of their products and since my Body Shop shampoo is empty, I needed a good alternative.

Alverde Coffein Shampoo and Tonic:

At the moment I make a pause from dyeing my hair black, I already miss it, but I'm still not sure if I don't want my "natural" hair colour back to get more possibilites. Maybe even make it lighter.. I don't know, what do you think?

But let's move on to the review:

Since I don't need a shampoo for coloured hair at the moment I chose the coffein shampoo, which is against thin and fine hair. It is with green coffee, never heard of that in a shampoo, but why not.

I'm still not totally sold on the shampoo and that is becauce of the smell. The shampoo itself is great, you don't need much and it foams nicely, which I want and it's silicone free. The problem, as stated, is the smell. When you shampoo your hair it actually smells like a bean, like a green coffee bean. So you kinda have the feeling you massage a plant into your hair, which isn't that great. The good thing though is that the smell doesn't last at all. You really only smell it during shampooing and then it's gone, so it's not that bad. Your hair feels clean and fresh. :-)

I never used a hair/scalp tonic before and I love it! *gg* It is so funny. You use it after you towel dry your hair. It has a water consistency and smells great! Thank god.. It smells like a mixture of green and lemon ice tea. You put it all over your scalp and massage it in, like you would do with a hair colour, it also has the same kinda bottle top.
It does !not! clump you hair or makes it sticky, you can brush through your hair and it feels like nothing is on your scalp. I can totally recommend it, I love using it. :-)

In a nutshell: I can recommend both products, the smell of the shampoo is a bit weird, but it's not that bad. The tonic is gorgeous and both products are free of artifical stuff, what do you want more. :-) I will repurchase both items.

Augentrost eye cream:
This is a very rich and intense eye cream and it does a great job, what I don't like about it is that it is a bit sticky. That feeling goes away after a few seconds, but if you get it in your eyebrows they stick together like crazy. An unpleasent feeling, like you put glue in them. Nevertheless, it does moisturise your lid area very well and that is the most important thing and you only need a tiny amount of product.

In a nutshell: If you have very dry lids and don't mind that you have to be careful where you put it, go buy it. :-)

I hope this was informative and useful.

Warum schreibst du auf Englisch?
Hört sich doch ein bissel holprig an?!

Eine ziemlich leicht zu beantwortende Frage:

Es sprechen weitaus mehr Menschen Englisch als Deutsch. Und ich kenne keinen einzigen Österreicher oder Deutschen, der kein Englisch spricht oder versteht.
Noch dazu hab ich einige Follower, die nicht deutschsprachig sind, wieso sollt ich diese Leute ausschließen? Wieso sollt ich also deutsch schreiben, wenn mich so viel mehr Leute verstehen? :-)Ist in meinen Augen etwas unlogisch.

Ich muss zugeben mein Englisch hat noch nie jemand als holprig bezeichnet, könntest du mir sagen worauf genau du dich beziehst?
Weder von den Amerikanern, die in unseren Make Up Store kommen und mich fragen, ob ich auch Amerikanerin bin oder Englisch meine Muttersprache is, weil ich es so fließend und akzentfrei sprech, noch von meinen Uniprofessoren, die es ja nun wirklich nicht nötig haben mir zu schmeicheln.

Natürlich bin ich nicht fehlerfrei oder so redegewandt, wie jemand, der Englisch als Muttersprache hat, aber ich find ich mach es ganz gut. Falls deine Muttersprache Englisch ist oder du vielleicht Englisch unterrichtest, natürlich bin ich nicht perfekt darin, aber als holprig würd ich es nicht bezeichnen. Holprig is vielleicht mein Französisch, aber sicher nicht mein Englisch.
