The Shining Mermaid

On the occasion of the release of the film "The Little Mermaid", makeup brand KIKO MILANO is collaborating with Disney and releasing an extensive limited edition makeup collection dedicated to the beloved film. The packaging is beautiful and designed as seashells and shells, the colors are sparkling and pigmented and we loved everything we reviewed in the collection: the bronzers in deep and yeast shades, the pigmented blushes and manage to stay on the skin for a long time, the lipsticks in beautiful matte shades, apply easily and are easy to use, and the highlighters are delicate, but give a natural and beautiful shine to the cheekbones. Great fun.

Price range:139-64 NIS

Behind the filter

Nespresso introduces several innovations for summer 2023: a filter-style coffee blend – the capsule, which is suitable for original machines, includes an outer wrapper that covers it and can be removed, and the discovery of the filter contributes to a higher aroma.

The blend features powerful roasting notes combined with earthy and smoky notes, along with subtle flavors of caramel and honey. The mixture fits in an extra-large glass (150 ml). We have to admit that we loved the trick of opening the capsule cover, which makes the taste a little more present and definitely reminiscent of filter coffee, although it is still a more subtle taste than we expected.

The Magic of Blush

Super-Pharm brought PIXI's blushes to Israel, which went viral, as a first step in bringing Pixie's makeup to Israel. If you've seen women apply something that looks like deodorant to their cheeks, it's these. On the glow blush comes in three shades, enriched with ginseng, aloe, castor oil, green tea extract and more.

Although they are also suitable for use as lipsticks, we didn't like the texture and result on the lips. On the cheeks, on the other hand, they created a perfect look, were easily applied, and it was possible to create layers from a lighter and subtle look to a more flushed look. They are particularly convenient to use and can be blurred with your fingers or brush. We also tested over powder – and they still created a smooth, glowing application.

Restore hair

Johnson & Johnson is launching a new brand in Israel, OGX, which includes a series of hair care and restoration products. We tested the series (shampoo and conditioner) plus milk and coconut oil for dry, moisture-free and shine-free hair, and the series (shampoo, conditioner and serum-oil) plus argan oil and keratin, for long, brittle and delicate hair with split ends.

Coconut Series smells amazing and feels good on dry, moisture-free hair, and hair feels softer after use. The Argan series also has a pleasant floral citrus scent that even stayed on the hair, and it made it shine and be more pleasant, but after a few days the hair returned to being dry and less easy to comb. We did not feel a significant change after using the serum.

Price:33 NIS per shampoo/conditioner, available at Super-Pharm

Straight out of Dubai

A new perfume series in Israel from the Emirati club de nuit. The perfumes are unisex, but feel more masculine – we tested Anne-Told, which is based on saffron and jasmine with amberwood and cedar notes: the perfume breaks out in a powerful bombardment combined with deep saffron scents, and then evaporates into a lighter jasmine scent.

The smell feels very heavy and less suitable for the days of the Israeli sherb, although the bottle is particularly beautiful. The second perfume, Blue Iconic, is based on lemon and mint with a floral scent, and it storms the Israeli heat with a refreshing citrus scent, hints of amber and even an echo of balsamic. The differential smell manages to last on the skin, and is especially pleasant.

Facial technology

A pair of new serums from Shiseido present a scientific breakthrough, according to the company, which is the result of three years of dedicated research with multidisciplinary experts. The serums, day and night, contain high molecular weight hyaluronic acid technology, while maintaining its moisture and volume and without changing its molecular structure.

The acid penetrates the skin and expands after penetration to increase volume from within, creating a more youthful appearance. Although there was no change after one use, as the company promises, after two weeks our skin felt and looked better. We can't say we could have diagnosed fewer fine lines or more volume, but overall, the skin would look healthier, more hydrated and even – and between us, that's what we're looking for.

ABOUT A YEAR AGO, MAC LAUNCHED THE MAC STACK MASCARA, AND NOW THEY'VE CREATED IT IN A WATERPROOF VERSION. In Israel's sweaty summer, when all mascaras leave marks on the upper eyelid and sometimes apply to the lower eyelid as well, we tested the mascara and saw that it was good - little to almost non-existent application and maximum durability. Just keep in mind that in order to take it off - you need to use a makeup remover and not micellar water. Price: 149 NIS.

A new series of premium vegan skewers from the "Teva Sheli" brand is marketed by the company "Guri". The skewers come in chicken, beef fillet and kebab flavors. The products contain no chemical ingredients and are not genetically modified. All products are certified by the Vegan Friendly Association. We tasted: the chicken and fillet do resemble something meatier in their taste, mainly thanks to the very specific seasoning for the skewers. They are delicious and can be a refreshing change from meat skewers. The kebab, on the other hand, is too dense and fails to come close in taste to the kebab, and we were less attached to it in taste. Recommended price: 25 NIS per 260 grams.

Saba Habib presents a series of olives stuffed with five flavors: filled with lemon, hot pepper, red pepper, garlic and almonds. We approached the olives filled with almonds as people who don't particularly like olives but love almonds very much, and we came out of it people who love olives (and the almonds are also fine). They are extremely fresh, juicy and have a clean aroma that leaves you wanting more. Excellent snack between meals. Price: 20 NIS per 500 grams.

Thelma expands the PROTEIN granola series and launches a new granola with 22% protein, dark chocolate and cashews, and contains half a teaspoon of sugar in a 30-gram serving. The mixture is delicious, and the dark chocolate icicles greatly enhance the flavor. The only problem: 30 grams is an extremely small serving, and it's hard to settle for it. Price range:15-22 NIS.
