Full skincare regimen with Vichy and La Roche Posay

Perfect gift for the special lady in your life - face and body skincare set

If you have combination skin and are over 25, this selection of Vichy + La Roche Posay will be perfect for you. We've taken care of your face as well as body with the baby body lotion that can be used by adults too!

I've selected these moisturizers specifically for combination skin. My skin is oily in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and normal to dry elsewhere. It's hard to pick up your daily lotion for that type of skin, but the options I offer you do the trick perfectly.

User review of our new Beko DS 8133 G tumble dryer

Review of our new tumble dryer Beko DS 8133 G + pictures

Recently we purchased our first tumble dryer for our new home. After careful research, we decided for a mid-range condenser tumble dryer that we can use without connecting to the house's water lines. So, naturally we selected Beko DS 8133 G model and are very happy with our choice.


What I like the most about the Beko DS 8133 G dryer is that it doesn't have to be connected to the pipeline of the household. You only need to plug it in the power outlet and you're in business! This is exactly what we did when we received it. Unpack and plug and you're ready, it's that easy and you don't need any tools.

This dryer is not a slim model, but it's not too bulky. It measures 85 x 60 x 54 cm and fits perfectly in its designated spot. However, keep in mind that if you have a slim washing machine, you won't fit this dryer on top. Another thing I was pleasantly surprised with is the interior light of the dryer when turned on.

As I mentioned above, this is a condenser dryer, no heat pump. Now I know that you've read all about heat pump dryers and how they're so famous these days, but this condenser dryer has its benefits as well. The price is the biggest one of them - the difference between a condenser and a heat pump drier is at least $150. Most people think that this spending will be compenstated by the difference in the electricity bill, however to justify that you would have to use the drier at least 7 years to compensate for the used electricity.

The Beko DS 8133 G has a water container for the condensed water after your clothes are dry. Naturally, you will have to empty the container yourself. It probably takes 3-4 dry cycles to fill the container depending on how much clothes you put in and how wet they are.


The dryer has 16 programs depending on the type of laundry you are going to try. In my opinion, the programs are more than enough to suit all needs. When you select the desired program, the diod light next to it fires up. Usage of the programs is as below:
  • Jeans - you can use specifically for denim clothes
  • Baby protect - gentle program for baby clothes
  • Shirts 15 min - short program for more delicate drying with less wrinkles
  • Sport - use for synthetic, cotton or mixed fabric laundry
  • 10 min, 20 min, 40 min, 60 min - dries for the selected time duration regardless of drying level
  • Cottons iron dry - you can use for durable cotton laundry, dries enough to be ironed afterwards
  • Synthetics iron dry - you can use for non-durable synthetic laundry, dries enough to be ironed afterwards
  • Cottons Cupboard dry - you can use for durable cotton laundry, dries enough to be stored in your warderobe
  • Synthetics Cupboard dry - you can use for non-durable synthetic laundry, dries enough to be stored in your warderobe
  • Cottons Cupboard dry plus - you can use for durable cotton laundry, higher dryness level
  • Cottons extra dry - you can use for durable cotton laundry, highest dryness level
  • Delicates - low-temperature drying for delicate clothing
  • Freshen up -  ventilates the clothes for 10 mins; usable if you've left the dried laundry in the tumble dryer for a long time

Final verdict

I am perfectly happy with this dryer and I think that the Beko DS 8133 G is a great choice for a dryer that corresponds perfectly to my needs:
  • Budget price
  • Comfortable and easy to use
  • Good dryness level
  • Relatively energy-efficient
  • No need to connect to the drain system

Which is the right TV size for you?

What is important to know when choosing your next TV - best TV sizes

choosing the right TV size
Many of you are probably wondering which is the best size when choosing your next TV. Nowadays there are so many different models and sizes that might be quite difficult to select the proper one. There are couple of major things that you may consider though and we will be discussing each one of them today.

One size fits all - not a good idea

It is very important to take into consideration the size of the room where the TV will be located. Smaller spaces would do better with smaller screens depending on the purpose for getting your TV. For example, if you need a TV for your kitchen you would be much better with a smaller TV between the 15-21 inch range and if you are looking for a new TV for your living room then you should get bigger screen of 40+ inches (well, that makes sense, doesn’t it).

Reason for buying / What you will use it for

Different people need new TV for different reasons. If you are in the search for a TV set that will primarily used for home cinema I would recommend getting a TV bigger than 39 inches (typically 42-47). Gaming TVs on the other hand shouldn’t be too big and exceed 47-inches.


That is an important factor when shopping your next TV. Most consumers will make the choice entirely relating to their budget and the limits it has. For people with average income I wouldn’t recommend spending over $1000 for a TV as this would definitely affect their overall budget. Of course this part is quite subjective and it is up to you to decide how much you would spend.
