Vichy Ideal Soleil SPF50 Stick

•••
I'm breaking up with my regular tube sunscreens for something way better, a portable stick! How many times do you leave the house for a random shopping spree, bumping into friends, staying out way too late with some wine as you eyeball everyone passing by. Even if I'm at that age.. I haven't forgotten that in spring the sun can and will burn you lobster red [...]

Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil

•••
Fans of the well known Nuxe Huile Prodigieux know how intoxicating the scent is. I'm well aware that they launched a fragrance to match the oil, but it's just not the same effect as sleeping in the oil overnight and then waking up with a hint of it the next morning. The Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil is clearly a must-have if you enjoy showering in that famous s[...]

Weleda Birch Elixir

•••
As strong as my coffee cravings can get in the morning when we open that inbox at work, many people join me in the quest of a healthier alternative. Drinking those eight glasses of water a day can be a chore when you're a water virgin, so adding flavor is key before you go all out and drink it pure. As it's spring and all of that easter chocolate has been di[...]

A Caudalie-Kiehl's Power Couple

•••
Entering my 30's is a milestone I'm completely fine with in terms of career and life, but I'm nowhere near prepare to look the part. It's not that fine lines freak me out or anything, I just know what I look like when I'm well rested and eat healthy.. so not ready to give up on that moist glow. So many anti-aging treatments promise the world but there's stil[...]

Weekend-Proof Your Look

•••
The most prominent distinction I can come up with beween fashion and beauty people is that.. they want to look good with clothes on.. and I'm more into what I look like when it all comes off! I don't have a meticulous masterplan that covers me from head to toe -or do I?- but I do need a solid base each time. Three cornerstones for my personal style are a dee[...]

Vichy Spa Shower Gel-Oil

•••
Skincare rules may ever be in favor of those that can scream loudest, but there's one rule that will always remain true: You have to cleanse before you can get anything done. Just like we exfoliate, cleanse and mask away to get our pores permanently de-gunked, our body needs regular maintenance. Showers are still beyond perfect to gather up your army of prod[...]

Fresh Faced With Clinique & Origins

•••
It's not a given when you turn 30 to party all night long and still appear fresh faced the next morning after inhaling nacho's and doing shots for the better part of the evening. Coffee jolts the brain but my face needs a different approach, heck I've even tried coffee scrubs but that was a unique experience  to repeated later on a larger scale. What I need [...]

La Roche Posay Redermic C

•••
A good skin brightener is an absolute essential for me. A constant in cooler weather to undo some of the sundamage amassed during summer, vitamin C is still widely known as an excellent investment. The La Roche Posay Redermic C combines the collagen boosting and skin brightening vitamin C with mannose -a denfisying sugar for an optical blur- and fragmented h[...]

Summer Facial Oils

•••
It's easy to assume we all wake up with perfect skin, heck I still get the occasional question as to why I look so "shiny" and well rested -not having kids helps- but there's no miracle procedure other than consistency and a few drops of facial oil. Believe it or not, it takes quite a bit of practice to figure out what you personally need but once you get it[...]

Vichy Dercos Mineral Soft Shampoo

•••
There are a lot of reasons why people have sensitive, itching scalps. For me it's the combination of going to the gym a lot plus having to shower to get styling products out. I can't skip showers so a little Vichy Dercos Mineral Soft Shampoo is a necessity, something to soothe while it still gently cleanses more than just water can. Even in between harsh dan[...]

Avène Soothing Eye Contour Cream

•••
Being quite sensitive by nature, our eyes really suffer from irritation no matter where it comes from. Allergies, using the wrong products, wind, straining them or maybe yours get red no matter what. The Avène Soothing Eye Contour Cream is a loyal ally to keep your skin happy, calm and fresh. Containing the soothing bisabolol extract, calming thermal waters [...]

Nuxe Rêve de Miel Ultra Comforting Foot Cream

•••
Have you ever looked down.. all the way down to your feet and wondered what the hell happened? Sure they're not on display often, and there's nothing I hate more than a sudden cold feet attack in bed, but if your feet look & feel like you could use them to climb trees.. schedule the damn pedi already! Nuxe Rêve de Miel Ultra Comforting Foot Cream is a so[...]
