Drugstore Nail Polish Removers vs. ZOYA

Beauty, Reviews

zoya-nail-polish-remover-livingwithjane

I never gave a second thought to nail polish removers that I used to use. I thought they were all kind of the same, but as it turned out  not all nail polishes are made equal. I recently tried Zoya Nail Polish Remover, and it was an eye-opening experience 🙂 Seriously, I was surprised at how easy it took off my nail polish. It easily removes any nail polish, even the most glittery ones. And bonus: it doesn’t smell bad.

The 3-in-1 formula removes nail polish, nourishes nails and fortifies the nail plate for guaranteed extended polish wear. But even if the only thing it did was removing nail polish, I’d still recommend it.  Continue reading “Drugstore Nail Polish Removers vs. ZOYA”


The Truth About Zofran

Health/Body, Maternity/Baby, NEWS, Reviews

Zofran-Lawsuit-livingwithjane

I have been recently contacted by ZofranLawsuitGuide.com asking me to get the word out on the dangers of a drug called Zofran. Many pregnant women are familiar with this drug since it’s prescribed to help with nausea and vomiting, but not many of us know about birth defects that Zofran can cause to a baby.

I’m usually against any medications in general, just because you never know the whole truth about any of them, I don’t want to endanger myself and especially my baby to any side effects. Thank God both of my pregnancies were good and I didn’t have bad morning sickness at all, I was prescribed Zofran once when I was pregnant with my second baby just in case my morning sickness got worse, and I waited as long as I could, not to take this medicine. But towards the end of my first trimester, I felt really sick and I took one, it helped. Luckily, the next day my morning sickness was gone, and I didn’t have to take more of it. But if I knew then what I know about Zofran now, I wouldn’t take it at all.

I’m not a doctor or medical worker, and I won’t ask you to solemnly rely on just this article, but I will ask you to do your own research on this drug before you take it, talk to your OBGYN as well. I read many articles about Zofran some say that the risk is minimal (but the risk is still there), some are completely against this medication to be prescribed to pregnant women. Here are the highlights about Zofran ↓

REVIEW: Micellar Water Simple vs. Bioderma

Beauty, Reviews

Micellar waters are becoming more and more popular, especially in Europe (for some reason). Here is just a short review of two micellar water that are famous here in US. One is by Simple, and another on by Bioderma.

In other words, micellar water is a cleansing water that removes makeup. It looks just a regular water..no fragrance, no foam..and the best thing you don’t have to rinse your face after using it..

Bioderma Micellar Water.

  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Comes in different sizes: 3.3 oz, 8.4 oz. 16.91 oz
  • Removes waterproof makeup
  • Removes lip stains (with a little effort, but still does the job)
  • A little hard to find in US (links to where you can find it below)

Price: 3.3 oz – $14, 8.4 oz – $17, 16.91 oz – $24

Where to find: Amazon (3.3 oz, 8.4 oz, 16.91 oz)

Simple Micellar Water.

  • You need to use a lot of this water to remove makeup
  • A little bit harsh
  • Easy to find
  • Removes waterproof makeup, but again you will need a lot of it
  • Can dry your skin

Price: $6

Where to find: Amazon

How I use it: 

I use it on lazy days when I absolutely don’t want to use cleansers and foams and wash my face. On usual days I remove my makeup with cleanser, and I use micellar water as a toner, and just to make sure that I remove all my makeup. And then I follow with a serum or cream..

Have you tried micellar water? Which one would you recommend?
