    Birds Keep Building Nest In Front Of Traffic Cam

    >A group of Ospreys, large fish-eating birds of prey, have opted to build their nest in front of a traffic camera on Maryland's Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and no matter how many times officials take the nest down, the Ospreys just build a new one. All in all, the nest has been removed three times and then rebuilt again by the Ospreys. Yup, these birds have definitely ruffled the MDTA’s feathers. …

Tried and tested: Xhekpon Crema

Verdict: This tightening face cream moisturises while boosting skin properties. It is supposed to help you git rid of wrinkles, too. Plus, it contains aloe vera which calms and soothes.

My first impression is that this is an old school face cream, very rich and thick. It feels nourishing on my face. After some days I get little bumps on my forehead so I only use the cream on facial parts with lines and wrinkles. It certainly helps and when the bumps are gone, I start using the cream all over my face again so maybe it takes some getting used to.

I am a 30-year-old with somewhat sensitive skin and while I find it hard to estimate if a cream really helps for my aspiring wrinkles I think I can see that after using this the deeper line between my eyebrows has become less profound. I am encouraged and will keep using this product!

Rated: 4 out of 5

Tried and tested: L'Oréal Paris Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer

Verdict: This primer is supposed to make your skin radiant and moisturise your face for eight hours. I am a make-up artist and used to different kinds of primers and I do love a great base on skin, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for L’Oréal Paris to have come up with a good one.

To use this product all over your face as a primer you have to be white as a ghost. I have tried that only a couple of times and then had to OD on blush and bronzer not to look like the living dead. So I prefer this as a highlighter, to give natural shine and radiance to the bridge of the nose, apple of cheeks and collar bones. If you have an actual skin tone, I’d recommend Crystal Radiance Primer from Lumene instead, as its peach tone goes with most Caucasian and Asian skin tones.

Rated: 2 out of 5

Tried and tested: Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm

Verdict: I am an avid user of the oh so popular BB Creams, which includes primer, concealer, foundation, SPF and skin care in one product. This is one of them.

I have an Asian skin tone and the shade Vanilla Glow worked wonders for me. The texture is amazing, as it is easy to apply the product evenly with fingers and the coverage is not too thin or thick. I feel, however, this is more of a foundation than a tinted moisturiser.

My skin stays matte all day and my skin tone gets more even with a healthy glow. To top it off, the smell is great!
