My Juicy Bottle Mask, Vita Ampoule Juice

Every time I get the KoreaΒ Box with really fantastic snacks they always send the sweetest letter and a tiny present because I was their first costumer. That is just how they are. A few months back I received My Juicy Bottle Mask from Scinic which is a brand I actually really love. So that was a match made in heaven πŸ™‚

They have a really handy packaging and makes the skin soft and moist. I got the orange Vita Ampoule Mask and I am really considering getting more. I love it πŸ™‚

I’ll give it **** out of 6 stars and I am a bit hard with my stars πŸ˜‰

Just cleanse your face and put the mask on for 10 – 20 min and then your skin will look refreshed and lovely.

I really recommend trying out Korea Box! You can get Snack boxes, Beauty Boxes and a very fun Korean K-Pop Fan box. Please check out their webpage. I am only a happy customer and do not have any part of the company at all but the owner is just always so friendly and listen to the feedback of the boxes which is a super +++

Eye Color Palette, Aubergine Dream

I’ve had this Eye Color Palette from H&M for quite a while now but I have not really used it before. I have so many palettes, so it was hiding at the back of my drawer. I was not expecting much since I have had really bad luck with H&M makeup but that was before they launched their new stuff for what now seems forever ago. I really love their lipsticks and also the packaging. I actually run around with them in my bag and have totally forgotten to use my YSL and Dior lippies since I got them. That is how good they are.

H&M

The palette is called Aubergine Dream and it is filled with different shades of Aubergine colors. I really like the mix of mat and shimmery shades. I have to admit that the glitter shades swatches better as with a lot of cheaper eye shadows. But in general I like the quality. They blend really well and if you spray with UD All Nighter Settingspray then they will last all day or night.

On the picture they look very brownish but that is because my camera is really bad sorry πŸ™‚

I give this palette **** out of 6 stars! I really like it for the price!

Sephora Toffee Creamy Body Wash!

I really love the Sephora Creamy Body Wash.Β The tube is 140 ml and it is really easy to bring to the gym or on a weekend trip. At the moment I am using the Toffee Creamy Body Wash and that is probably not for everyone as it is quite sweet.

Luckily there are a lot of varieties that you can try out. Both flowery, fresh and fruity scents. You can also get hand wash, hand lotion, body lotion and small bath tub singles.

I recommend this and give it **** out of 6 stars.

January blues ;)

After the happy December comes dark, wet and cold January. It has been up to minus 18 degrees here and I know I should not even complain compared to other parts of Norway!

But what do you do when it is so cold and your skin feels like it is cracking and your face is red?!? I have very dry skin in the winter but it is not nearly as bad as it has been before and thus I will share some of my secrets to maintaining a healthy look during the wintertime with you πŸ™‚

A. Always use a skin toner or a moisture tonic right after you step out of the shower! Don’t just spray it on your face but preferably all over the body except certain intimate areas of course.

This is L’Occitane but you can also use a Korean or Japanese one of course. At the moment I am using this on my body and Sulwhasoo timetreasure Perfecting Water on my face!

 

B. Use really good face masks every week. I use a Sheet mask 2 times a week, a hydro-gel mask one time a week, a clay mask and a peel one or two times a week followed by a moisture mask depending on how dry my skin is.

My favorite moisture mask at the moment is Glam Glow’s Thirstymud – I use it both as a mask and as a sleeping mask sometimes if my skin is really dry. You do not need to take it off before it’s morning – you can sleep with it all night.

C. Never leave your house without a thick cream on that preferably is not water based. If you use a water based cream then wait 30 min before you go out!
Use a lot of makeup – not so it looks cakey of course but makeup protects your skin so on with your primer, cushion or foundation on top of the cream… πŸ˜‰

D. Always run to the bathroom and take off the makeup when you get home after being in very cold weather. Cleanse and put on a mask or thick layer of lotion and relax in front of the telly, the computer or read a book for 20 – 40 min. Saves my skin all the time… A thick layer of cream on the cheeks and chin with a hydro-gel eye mask is the best for me. At the moment I use Glam Rock from Too Cool For School.

Do you have any winter tips?! Please share them with me! And I wish you all a great January without any skin blues…

A scented candle is always a perfect Christmas Present for most women. If you know them well enough to pick out a scent that they love. This candle is from B & Bw but there are also many popular brands here in Europe depending on which Country you are from. If you wish to buy luxurious candles it is also possible. You can get very fancy scented candles in most stores these days.

Rituals…Tao Yin

minisite-tao-products

I have to admit that I am totally in love with this!!! The smell is just beautiful and so feminine.

I love the bath gel that turns into foam. A little goes such a long way! I also love the Organic White Lotus & Yi Yi Ren Calming bed and body mist.

Body and bed

If you are busy and a bit stressed this Christmas the answer is simple.

This relaxing serum from Rituals with Chinese Mint and Yi Yi Ren is amazing if you put it on where your pulse is… Β Wrists, neck and behind your knee for instance. Just keep it in your purse and use it on the job and everywhere you feel you need it. It is also a very caring Christmas gift for someone you love!!!

I give Rituals in this version a big ****** out of 6 stars! And that almost never happen… πŸ™‚
