Contes de la beauté is a lifestyle blog by two girls in the age of 25 & 26 from Austria. We write about beauty stuff like makeup looks, product reviews, some fashion-related posts or stuff that won't leave our heads.

TCM: Cleansing Powder

I am a bit skeptical when it comes to cleanser in powder form, because normally I am more into gel or foam cleansers, but a sweet friend of mine gifted me with the Master Lin “Herbal Cleansing Powder & Beauty Mask”, so shout out to her, because this is really great stuff!
Master Lin “Herbal Cleansing Powder & Beauty Mask” – € 49,90 / 40 g

Sometimes after washing my face, my skin feels a little bit dry. That’s why I don’t use my Origins-foam anymore. But if I use the Master Lin, my skin doesn’t feel dry at all. According to the products description: “The deep penetrating effective facial cleansing powder and mask comprised of handpicked herbs such as lavender and jasmine which gently nourish and peel. Balanced TCM-recipe with precious pearl (antiseptic), tiger grass (disinfectant) and chamomile (soothing). Used skin cells are gently removed and the skin once again reveals its natural glow. According to the Yin-Yang principle it is suitable for all skin types.”

How I use it: I place a tiny amount on my hand, add a few drops of water and mix it into a cream. After that I rub it on my dry face, wait a few seconds then I wash it off.
My face feels refreshed and clean without any feeling of tension and the product itself lasted for two months – great product which I am going to repurchase!

Master Lin returns the skin to its natural balance and restores elasticity, vitality and freshness. Last but not least: it is an Austrian brand, based near Vienna.

May favorites

While in Vienna/Austria the weather wasn’t showing its best side I spent the majority of May in the UAE where it had 41 degrees and wasn’t cloudy at all. So for me the last month was all about the heat.

May favorites
1. Origins “GinZing refreshing eye cream” / 2. Sephora “Flawless moisturizing lotion SPF 15 sunscreen” /
3. Essie “tart deco” / 4. Too Faced “Shadow Insurance” / 5. Dolce&Gabbana “#260 Provocative

1. This tinted eye cream helps to brighten and depuff and diminishes dark circles. It doesn’t have a cooling effect but nevertheless it gives good results – I use it only in the morning because of its tint. After applying it you will look awake even after a long night.
2. Since a good face moisturizer is half the rent – especially in summer and winter – I bought this moisturizing lotion when I was at Sephora. It has SPF 15, a fluid lightweight texture and works perfectly for combination to oily skin and humidity areas. I need to buy myself an additional bottle because it’s awesome and hydrates the skin so you won’t have cakey face after applying your foundation.
3. This nail varnish is perfect for summer and its coral color looks even better on tanned (or in my case fake tanned) skin. Furthermore it lasted me approximately one week without a chip.
4. A creasing eye shadow isn’t really cute that's where this baby comes in – it will help your eye shadow to last all day without settle in the crease and a little goes a long way.

5. A woman can’t own to many lipsticks, right? This creamy long-lasting one moisturizes your lips, so you don’t need to apply a lip balm before applying it and the pink color really pops out and gives you a fresh looking appearance. 


Hey honnies!

I just wanted to let you know that if everything went as it should I arrived safely at the UAE. There I will spend some time to relax. At the of end of may I will be back with some new blog posts and also some new products that I am going to review.
Have a great time until then and if Wifi works, I will keep you updated via Social Media.
