Review: Eucerin - AQUAporin Active

Hello! Skincare has been my priority in the last couple of months and I tried to use up quite a lot of products. One of them was Eucerin AQUAporin Active facial cream for normal to mixed skin type. I have tried and tested this one last year actually, but it never got to be on my blog. Since it was one of the best hydrating facial creams I have tried so far I thought it would be appropriate to give it a full blog post and a more detailed review!

Those two blog posts will be even longer, so get ready for picture heavy super long posts! Check out if any of my used up products are also your favourites!

NEW IN - January 2017 :)

Hello! Yes, I am finally back with a new blog post. Some of you commented that you missed my NEW IN blog posts.

So I will start with November, than comes December and finally all new products from January! I have created photos for each blog post separately so you will be able to follow which month it is just by looking at the different backgrounds. :P Anyway, I hope you won't mind the long post, I really want to have everything up on my blog, so it's easier for me as well to check on the products and see what I have tested already and what not, how long ago and such. So let's get started!
