PinkPanel Goodies!

Disclaimer:  Product sent for the purposed of review.  All opinions expressed are my own. 

Last week, I posted about the PinkPanela community of beauty-obsessed women who share an undying passion for beauty products!   The PinkPanel was kind enough to send me a little bag of goodies to try out!

Two of the products were from a European company that I hadn't heard about before, Bell.  The third product is from Nailtini.

Bio2 Vitamin Booster is a reinforcing serum for weak nails.  It is said to strengthen and nourish nails, harden the nail plate and stimulate nail growth.  Containing an advanced complex of plant stem cells it is supposed to stimulate the formation of keratin, the main construction material in nails and results in and accelerated growth of strong, healthy nails.  

My natural nails are already pretty strong and grow fast.  I used this for a week and didn't experience any breakage, but I don't normally anyway.  It did make my nails very shiny, which I liked.  I'm not sure if you can use this as a base coat under polish, as it it supposed to let your nails breath.  

This product does not yet seem to be available in the US.

Bell Derma Intensive Beauty Skin Ant-Age Foundation is formulated for sensitive and acne prone skin.  It is said to cover skin imperfections and provide a fresh matte complexion for hours. It is supposed to inhibit the growth of bacteria, protect skin from free radicals, rebalance oily and acne prone skin, and fight irritation while providing a soothing effect.  It has a UVB filter and Vitamin C and E.

I received this foundation in the color 1 Porcelain, which I believe is the lightest shade.   Even though I thought it would be too light for me, I figured I would give it a chance, even if I had to darken it up with some bronzer.  This really didn't do anything for me and provided absolutely no coverage.  The color blended into my skin and just disappeared.  It was like I had not put anything on.   I may give this another shot and try it as a primer under my foundation to see if it really gives the benefits it claims.  

I was most excited to receive Nailtini's hot pink shade in Grenadine.  Nailtini is a line of nail lacquer developed to maximize the creativity of the user by "cocktailing" different shades.  

Grenadine is a gorgeous vibrant hot pink.  It applies really nicely and evenly.  I wore it for a full day with no topcoat without any chips before I removed to change polish.
