Review: Geo Angel blue


Another lenses review kindly sponsored by my favorite lenses shop Geocolouredlenses! As I said in the previous dedicated posts (check them here) this shop sells only genuine Geo lenses and offers free worlwide shipping with every order. There are also a lot of lenses with prescription, really important for myopic ones! I chose Geo Angel blue, it was the first time I tried this model, I was really curious 'cause I saw a lot of people wearing it!

I got the little parcel with the usual business card and the usefull leaflet about how to put lenses on and take care of them, as always the packaging was really accurate!

Power Range: 0.00 ~ -10.00
Diameter: 14.2mm
Base Curve Radius: 8.6
Water Content: 38~42%
1 year disposable

The lenses have a really vivid blue with a large black circle outline, the model is not made to blend perfectly the color between the lenses and the eyes, but it's not really notable in real life. They're really comfy like every genuine lenses from Geo, also with my sensitive eyes! They come with prescription for myopic people like me.

Color 5/5: the color is really vibrant even on dark eyes!
Design 4/5: really cute design, I like the black outline.
Enlargement 4/5: they have a little diameter but they give a nice natural enlargement.
Comfort 5/5: super comfy as all the Geo lenses!

- vibrant color
- perfect for a natural look
- super comfortable lenses
- available with prescription

- not suitable for who is searching for a big enlargement effect
- not apt for who is searching a natural blending on dark eyes

Hair care routine & extensions

I received many requests about how I usually take care of my hair, mostly because my own hair has the worst nature ever, they're always frizzy and with tons of nodes, they are not straight but I don't like how they look with natural curls, so I always need to smooth them or to use a curly iron. I also bleached them many and many times so you can understand how difficult is to have beautiful hair with these conditions. The past year I decided to totally change my hair care routine and it was an awesome decision, now I have beautiful hair and I don't need to use a lot the irons and ruin them more! I said goodbye to all the products with parabens and silicone!

Before washing: I use every time a moisturizing mask because my hair are dry to the lenghts, Lush masks are my favorite all the time, but you can make one also with what you found in your kitchen, there are a lot of recipes online! I always leave them for 40 minutes (not 20 as Lush wrote on the packages) so the hair will be more straight and soft! Obviously I have the italian versions but I did a search to share with you their English names: Belli Capelli = Jasmin and henna fluff-eaze, Capelli D'Angelo= H'suan wenhua.

Wash (Shampoo): I have oily hair on the roots and dry on the lenghts, maybe the worst combination ever 'cause you need different products, but after ages using a pharmacy shampoo for my roots I noticed there aren't any problem with Lush liquid shampoo, also if I use them on all the hair! I tried this three shampoo ( I also have Lazzaro on my parents home in the medium version) and I really like all of them! In English: Lazzaro= Rehab, A Tutta birra= Cynthia Sylvia Stout, Dolce metà= Fair Trade Honey. All of them smell so good, I'm totally addicted!

Wash (conditioner):  this is a really important step for me, hair become a lot  smoother and soft after using a really good conditioner. My favorites are Lush AAA Cercasi (Retread in English) and the Splendor coconut conditioner ( I don't know if it exists outside of Italy). The first one is absolutely my favorite but I also use the second one when I'm near to finish the first one, it hasn't a ecobio inci but it's really good anyway and also very cheap!

Extensions: As many of you know I wore extensions, I like a lot more my hair with them 'cause before the bleaching my hair were really really long and now I feel a bit naked after I removed the damaged tips . has really beautiful human hair extensions and you can choose between a lot of colors, lenghts and types (like brazilian hair, weave, micro loop, clip in sets, etc). I personally recommend Clip in Hair Extensions like mine 'cause I'm totally satisfied with them, you can take them only when you have a special occasion and take down to the evening, really convenient! As my real hair I wash them with my own shampoo and styling with the iron without any problem!

Let me know if you have some products with great inci to suggest me, I'm really curious to know what do you use and if you like extensions!

Review: Jollychic leopard coat

I recently got this amazing coat from Jollychic, if you don't know this shop they sell a lot of amazing  things for affordable prices! The choice is so large I'm sure you'll find something you like, there are so many amazing things it's really hard to choose (my favorite sections are leggings, coats and sweaters)! As you already know I'm a big fan of leopard prints, I have in my closet tons of clothes and accessory but I miss in my collection a fur long coat, so when I saw this one my heart screamed like a crazy!

I was really surprised how amazing the quality is, the fake fur is really soft, I absolutely love it! The material is so warm I have no problem to wear it also with this freezing weather. I love how it fits perfectly and how it's versatile, I can wear it with a lot of different things in my closet! I chose an s size , it's not too tight so you can wear thick clothes under it. If you are a leopard-addicted like me I'm sure you'll love it!

And also some outfit pictures without the coat!

I absolutely recommend Jollychic, I love their service and their products! Let me know if you already bought something from them!
