As a kid I always looked at my mother’s beauty products and it was such a mystery why she needed so many products. Now I know.
A good, radiant skin and nice, thick, healthy hair may have something to do with genes, but it doesn’t hurt to help nature a little hand while still striving for perfection.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. White creamy substances and moisturizing essences. Brown glowy packages with a wonder remedy. These are a few of my favourite beauty things.
Pure vitality skin renewing cream
I use Kiehl’s skin renewing cream with red ginseng root and manuka honey as a night cream. This product has a rich texture that moisturizes your skin perfectly without feeling to heavy on the skin. And it smells great by the way. You can also use this product as a daycream if you feel like your skin can use some extra moisturizer.
Kiehl’s Midnight recovery botanical cleansing oil
I absolutely love this product! The blue bottled range of Kiehl’s is probably the most popular one of all and this without a doubt is my number one. I use this product before using the vitality renewing cream, to make sure my skin is clean. I just apply two pumps in my hand, rub it in and rinse with warm water. Don’t be afraid to use rather oily products, even if you have an oily skin. By using products that eliminate the oil on your skin, your natural oil production might by elevated so you end up with an even more oily skin.
I also use this product to remove my water proof make up. Because of the fact that it is an oily product, the waterproof make-up comes off way more easy. Which is an absolute gift because we all know how much of a pain in the ass, waterproof make-up can be.
Caudalie vino perfect
This product is my absolute must-have. It’s a cream that moisturizes your skin and eliminates dark spots. This product is oil-free and the main ingredient is Viniferine, which is extracted from grape vine sap, so it’s super natural. I apply it in the morning, before my make-up, to even my skin. Sometimes I also use it before going to bed when I feel like my skin can use some extra care. It’s also a must-have when you travel, because of the flight your skin can get really dry, so I immediately put on a layer of Caudalie vino perfect as soon as we landed so that my skin can recover.
Caudalie Vineactiv Eye cream
Many people forget that the skin around your eyes is even more sensitive, so it needs a special care, that’s why eye cream is definitely a must. The caudalie vineactiv eye cream is a great product. It softens the skin and it makes sure that your skin had enough moiste, by using an eye cream you also create a great base for your eye shadow, so it lasts the entire day.
Caudalie Vineactiv glow activating anti-wrinkle serum
This serum helps to protect your skin from daily pollution. You have to put it on before your day or night cream to maximise the effect. Your skin immediately feels more radiant and soft. The range is specially made for women with a busy lifestyle to take away the signs stress and dullness.
My hair definitely needs proper care, it’s rather thin and wavy, especially during the summer months it can look dull. My hair can suffer from damage really easily so I’m always on a hunt for the best products. The products from Kérastase are one by one, amazing. Recently I’m using the Kérastase Aura Botanica essence d’éclat. I use this spray after I washed my hair. It hydrates my hair and keeps the frizz away. Once a month I use the concentre essentiel and I only apply it on my dry ends. When you have thicker hair you can make this a part of your hair care ritual but because my hair is rather thin I prefer using it as an extra care once a month.
