Quite good spices: Spices Kotanyi

Date:      Author:     Category: Seasonings & Spices
Every lady of the house who loves cooking has her own spices and seasonings. Of course, it is better to preserve potherbs from your own kitchen-garden, but not everyone has such a possibility and some vegetable herbs don’t grow in our severe climate. That is why we have to buy spices and their taste is not always the same. Regularly I buy spices in bright packages of Kotanyi, but I cannot call them “excellent”. Yes, they are good – fresh flavor, bright green color. You can see that they were taken raw and were processed properly. The package is evidently metalized. If you open it you can fold the corner and it will stay ...

When at work, I just must look immaculately, that’s why I have to use cosmetics every day. When I return home late, I only wish to remove the makeup quickly and carefully, so that my skin looked well and there were no remains of lash mascara, eyeliner or orbital night. I’ve recently solved this problem after having tried numerous tonics, gels and cleansing milks. The ones exasperated the mucosa, the others made it dry. Having tried the L’Oreal decorative makeup remover I stopped searching, because I really enjoyed it. Now I’ve fully realized that it’s better to spend a bit more money for higher quality. Now I don’t ...

I like these good drops: Hylo Tear

Date:      Author:     Category: Eye Diseases
As I spend most of the time working on a computer, I regularly use moistening eye drops to avoid the Dry eye syndrome. I’ve made up my mind that I like the HyloComod drops the most, because both the composition (hyaluronic acid) and the design suit me. At first the flacon seemed too heavy and unhandy to me, but I’ve got used to it in a couple of times, and now I certainly won’t return to the usual glass-droppers. The flacon lets you dose the drops in a very precise way: 1 press – 1 drop that is always of the same size. You’ll never drop more than needed, which is the case of glass-droppers, and as a result, the consumption is more ...

A perfect scent and a great bottle: Antonio Banderas Golden Secret Eau De Parfum

Date:      Author:     Category: Perfume
In the past I was skeptical about "celebrities" perfumes as I thought these scents are rather simple and off-grade. While choosing a present for my husband I decided to smell a perfume The Golden Secret presented by Antonio Banderas. I was pleasantly surprised. This scent was provocatively strong and sexy. There’s some special thrill in it, which sets the perfume apart from the other men’s perfumes. The smell is memorable. I've decided to break my own principles and bought that perfume for my husband. The composition includes such top notes, as mint and rum, middle notes, as musk and black pepper and basic notes, as ...

Getting rid of scars: Skin Medica Scar Recovery Gel

Date:      Author:     Category: Skin Care Products
Though products of this label are quite expensive, I think that they are rather qualitative and effective. I`ve already tried serum and facial cream which I liked. Six months ago my husband had surgery for appendicitis and the joint was not very successful so a terrible big scar remained. We decided to try this gel in order to try to get rid of it. First I worried about the safety of this product because I thought that it should contain different chemicals but I have consulted the doctor and he said that there is nothing dangerous in the content of cream. So, my husband has been using this gel for a month or so. Of course the ...

Date:      Author:     Category: Insomnia
Recently, due to my difficult job where I`m constantly in stress, I`ve noticed that it is extremely difficult for me to fall asleep. Even if I manage to do it, in an hour or so I wake up and can`t fall asleep till the morning. Every morning I have a terrible feeling as if I`ve been working all night long and a terrible headache as a result of unhealthy sleep. I was exhausted and my sister told me that she has found some magic pills that can help to solve my problem. At first I thought that it is rather dangerous because I`ve heard that medications of such type can influence you so much that you can be sleepy all the next time which is ...
