Erre Due Waterproof Volumizing Mascara Review

Hello beauties!

How are you?  Summer is coming to an end but fear not. 

A hot autumn is coming our way with new things, trends, ideas, renewals.

This may be the end of a season but don't forget,  it's the beginning of a new one.

Don't worry about sand castles that got carried away by the waves or the tan you are struggling to hold on to your skin. 

We can always keep the sun in our heart, eyes and smiles and keep it glum and frown proof.

And speaking of resistance, I will speak to you today about a waterproof mascara I have been trying and wearing all summer that really impressed me.

Erre Due Waterproof Volumizing Mascara*


I was never really into waterproof mascara just because I used to think its only use is when you want to go to the pool all made up! 
Well, things have changed..I have changed and now, I embrace the idea of waterproof mascara especially when I know I will be wearing my makeup for lots of hours on a humid day or a night out that I want my mascara to stay right on my lashes and not my under eye area all smudged up. 

So when I got to try this one I was intrigued. And later, hooked.

The other mascaras I used in the past are a little dry or they dry really fast and as for the waterproof part...some days you are lucky and other's you are not.

I trialed this mascara by mistake. 

I was getting ready for a night out and wanted my makeup to stay intact so I thought I would try out this new mascara.

When I got back, late at night, really late at night, I totally forgot about the waterproof mascara that I was wearing and did my usual cleanser routine. 

Well........after throwing water on my face, after rubbing foam on my eyes, I looked my self in the mirror because something didn't feel right and voila!

All my eye makeup was gone except my mascara! But when I say was not gone , I mean it was there looking like just applied!

I am very happy with this waterproof mascara. It gives my lashes a good volume and length.

Yes it takes a little more than others to dry but not too long. As soon as I finish with the rest of the face, my lashes are dry.

See for yourself.

01 Black



02 Electric Blue



It is ophthalmologically tested and paraben free.

Do you use waterproof mascara?

Which one is your favorite?


As always,

stay healthy & beautiful

Castalia Sensial Gel Nettoyant Surgras Review

Hello beauties!

I am so sorry for having to write a post for so long but you know……it is August…….vacation month…….lack of internet…..all that.

But now, I am officially back to start on our reviews and I have so many!

Today I will start with a cleansing product that I have been using during my vacation as I wanted to help  my skin a little more against the extra trouble I was putting it through, with the sea, salt, sun, every day.

Castalia Sensial Gel Nettoyant Surgras





It is a face & body gentle daily cleanser for sensitive normal – combination skin.

It is a rather thick foaming gel that purifies the skin without disturbing its moisture levels.
Soap free and enriched with soothing and calming ingredients that help your skin regain its hydration.



It feels quite rich and luxurious on my skin and so soft……

It is not the best for removing your makeup but either way this is not why it is made for.

I have combination/oily skin and in the past I thought that the more drying cleanser I used, the better.

It is years now that I know how false and wrong is that for my skin.

Drying your skin from all its natural oils, you are forcing it to produce more and more oil.
And it never stops.

The ideal is to cleanse your skin with a good anti-irritating cleanser like this one that will help your skin to maintain its hydration, soothe it and protect it from irritations, redness etc.

I got this Castalia Cleanser inside a beauty box I was subscribed to, here in Greece.

Forgive me for not saying the beauty box brand, the beauties out there know for which one I am talking  about, but I was very disappointed simply because I think their purpose is to provide mostly travel size or in some cases full size products not products like this one that says “free gift” on the package, probably from a previous brand offer that is left over and I may find it next month inside of a magazine.

I was really disappointed even from the first box I got, this is the second, as I chose a 3-month subscription after seeing a fantastic premiere box with top brands I always wanted to try, which these came in sample sachets.

And one last thing. After comparing my beauty box with the boxes of other girls of the same month, I noticed, and not only me, that there was a big difference of products and total cost of the box.

For example mine cost around 18 euro and others around 40 euros. That is an unforgivable difference.

I would love to hear your true opinion about it.

Anyway, I said I wouldn't say anything and I got carried away.

Back to the review.

I really really like this cleanser. It feels so soft and luxurious on my skin and I know it does good to it.

Along with some new skincare regime I adopted, for which I will talk about soon, my skin feels and seems relaxed and healthy.
I will repurchase it for sure.

If you have normal-combination skin but feel dehydrated you should give this a try.

It costs around 12,70 for 200 ml. 


As always,
Stay healthy & beautiful
