Eyebrows or not to be

Eyebrow artist

Shir Nakash

has released a line of eyebrow care products, which will be marketed in the April network.

The products combine herbs and oils to restore and nourish skin and eyebrow hair and rich pigment powders.

Among the products: cleansing foam, eyebrow mascara, mechanical pencil with a thin tip, tweezers and more.

The eyebrow cleansing foam is actually a facial cleansing foam, to be honest, its smell is gentle and it cleans the skin thoroughly without drying it.

The transparent eyebrow mascara is easy to apply and separates eyebrows, although the material is not strong enough to keep the eyebrow hair standing and tidy for a long time.

The pencil in the shade of natural brown was darker than expected and would suit eyebrows in a very dark brown shade, comes with a thin tip and is convenient for drawing thin hairs.

The pigment is strong but not overpowering, and it remains durable throughout the day.

All products are designed with an elegant and glam appearance, and it is obvious that these are ones that have invested in them.

Price range:

NIS 89-99

Two sides to mascara

A new series of mascaras from

L'Oréal Paris

- PRO XXL - and among them you can also find a silver mascara for volume and a red one for lifting.

The red is enriched with pro-keratin, lasts for 24 hours and does not smear and crumble, and the silver is enriched with panthenol and is also resistant, according to the company.

The mascaras are double-sided, one side is used as a kind of primer and the other as mascara.

We tested both mascaras after using an eyelash circle.

We couldn't see a lift with the red, which was fine, but gave the same reasonable and average results with and without the primer.

With the silver we didn't necessarily see volume, but we saw an upgrade of eyelashes from the first moment we used it - rounded, longer, separated and looking great, yet still natural looking.

An experience with and without a primer also showed a difference in favor of using it, and it is the winner for us.

Creator of the Bamba fruit

As lovers of bamba and red bamba (separately), we were happy to try the new flavor - bamba filled with Asam's sweet bamba



We probably wouldn't have recognized it in advance if they had told us that the filling was red bamba, ours was more strawberry flavored.

The snack is tasty and crunchy, but the charm and uniqueness of the red bamba is not felt in it, and its taste seems more like a bamba with a sweet fruity filling.

Even children who tried the snack connected less, unlike the other bamba combinations - mainly nougat.

It is of course still delicious, because after all - it is bamba, but probably at this stage it is better to leave the red bamba alone.

Price range: 

NIS 3-7.90 for 60 grams

upgrade the fitness

When we first wore the Smart Band 7 Pro,


's upgraded fitness bracelet , we felt we got a little more than a strap that measures heart rate and records fitness training.

In fact, this is a set of improvements to the base model (Mi Band 7), where the highlight of the bracelet is the great screen, which, compared to the previous model, has expanded to the sides and reaches 1.64 inches.

Its rectangular shape confuses and blurs the line between a fitness bracelet and a smart watch.

The change made by the company does not amount only to the physical size of the screen, but also to its quality.

A brighter AMOLED type display, which reaches up to 500 nits, guarantees pure enjoyment when it comes to reading text and displaying content.

The resolution, which stands at 456x280 pixels (density of 326 per inch) will not disappoint even in direct sunlight.

Xiaomi even integrated 5 brightness levels for personal selection and an automatic brightness sensor, which does an excellent job.

This device has physical buttons (to turn it on you will need to connect the charger to electricity) and the metal frame around it looks great, and together with its low weight, they create the feeling of a particularly elegant premium watch.

The interface of Mi Band 7 Pro is easy to navigate, although you will have to use gestures only - as mentioned, due to the lack of a physical button.

Swiping left will display central widgets, and swiping right will lead to the settings buttons.

Any activity you want

Xiaomi packed into its new watch no less than 110 different sports activities, such as walking, running, swimming (water resistant, of course), climbing, cycling and more.

Even if you haven't started a specific workout, the watch will collect daily data for you such as the number of steps, walking/running distance, heart rate, amount of oxygen in the blood (SpO2) and will summarize everything for you in one place.

An option to use GPS has been added to the Mi Band 7 Pro, and now you can use an exact location on the map, which means you don't need your phone to track your training route.

For the guys who don't exercise, here's something for you: during the night Jacob will watch your sleep and rate its quality.

You can watch the light and deep sleep cycles, as well as the length of time you closed your eyes.

The Chinese electronics company guarantees that its battery (235 mAh) will provide no less than 12 days of use (with average work and economical use).

In practice, we were able to operate the bracelet for six days that included thousands of messages, emails, a bit of navigation and playing with the settings for the purpose of the review (the test was done without sleep monitoring at night).

So who is the bracelet suitable for?

It is true that there are quite a few good alternatives in the Israeli market, but if you do sports or just want a smart watch that won't break your pocket - you may find what you were looking for in this watch.

Buy roses, buy


is launching a new face care collection with an international organic standard, GLOW FACE CARE, which consists of unique minerals from the Dead Sea and includes ingredients from Damascus rose.

The series includes a rose water extract spray, a serum enriched with 8 botanical oils and a night and day care cream enriched with the same ingredients.

According to the company, the products have a 100% natural fragrance, but to us they felt a little too perfumed like facial products, with a heavy scent of roses.

The serum and cream have a pleasant and rich texture and are not heavy and greasy, are easily absorbed and are well received on the skin.

The watery spray was not so noticeable on the skin, but the Shabbos experimenter liked to use it as a liquid moisturizer for the skin of the face.

Price range:

NIS 289-255

Whitney's blush

A new


makeup collection in tribute to Whitney Houston was inspired by her unique style on the occasion of her 60th birthday, and among other things you can find lipsticks, glosses, blushes and more.

We tested the MAC X WHITNEY HOUSTON blush in the pink rose shade, which is stamped with Whitney's signature and comes in a fancy packaging.

As its name implies, it is extremely pink, yet gentle and natural on the cheek and stays on for a long time.

For darker skin, you can build another layer on it, and for light skin, one light stroke is enough to create a flushed look, and it refreshes the look of the cheek, is durable and pigmented, and blends easily with the brush.
