Estelle & Thild is a multi award winning organic certified Swedish skincare brand. Founded by Pernilla Rönnberg  and named afer her two doughters. The BioDefence Multi- Nutriënt Youth Oil (49,50/30ml) is packed with some awesome ingredients known for delaying the signs of aging. Remember that what you put on your skin is as important as the food you eat. Ingredients: Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil*, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil*, Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline, Palmitic Acid, Tocopherol, Aqua, Parfum, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool – Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil:  (Apricot Kernel Oil) is rich in fatty acids, good for oily skin, contains vitamine A and E, anti-inflammatory effect, good for skin conditions such as eczema. – Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil: (Sweet Almond Oil) is easily absorbed and has a high content of essential fatty acids. – Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil: (Jojoba Oil) is also easily absorbed, good for oily skin, identical to sebum oil, rich source of fatty acids. – Rosa Canina Fruit Oil: (Rose Hip Oil) is full of vitamines, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. All the above mentioned ingredients will “increase moisture retention, boost radiance and combat early signs of agening” I prefer face oil over a moisturizer because the high concentration of active ingredients in face oil makes it a very good investment. This BioDefence Multi Nutriënt Youth Oil has a nice smell, it make me think about berries and I  find it very hydrating.  I love the fact that two drops is enough for my combination (sometimes oily) skin. I follow up with two drops on my neck. Remember this rule: “what you use...
AESOP HANDPICKED BY SKINS COSMETICS

AESOP HANDPICKED BY SKINS COSMETICS

I want do dedicate a blogpost to the famous skincare brand AESOP. Do you know that feeling? not knowing what to choose? AESOP is known for their minimalist (medicine bottle like) packaging and their large range of products. I never knew what to buy from this skincare brand because they offer such a large range of personal products.  Thanks to the lovely salesladies at SKINS COSMETICS I recently got to know more about the product range and what AESOP has to offer. Let me tell you more about AESOP: “We are committed to using both plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients of the highest quality and proven efficacy – particularly those with the greatest anti-oxidant properties. We value all human endeavours undertaken with intellectual rigour, vision, and a nod to the whimsical. Every Aesop product is made with the same attention to detail we believe should be applied to life at large, taking into consideration a diversity of needs as well as seasonal and environmental conditions.” As you can read above AESOP products are made from plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients. The smell can be described as ‘herbaceous’ and ‘medicinal’. There are big individual differences in scent preferences so I would not recommend AESOP to someone who doesn’t like this kind of scents. If the scent is a killer for you i guess you better leave it alone! Let me help you a little bit trough your search for AESOP products. 1. AESOP IMMEDIATE MOISTURE FACIAL HYDROSOL (€21) This is a great addition to your skincare collection, a must have for the warmer days. “A Rose Petal-infused spritzing hydrator to refresh and revive skin and mind. Ideal for those journeying...
DR VRANJES FRAGANZA D’AMBIENTE

DR VRANJES FRAGANZA D’AMBIENTE

There we go again! I was walking trough Skins Cosmetics this weekend when the Dr Vranjes collection caught my eye. I always wanted to have a reed diffuser from Dr Vranjes in my bedroom, the ‘clean’ and simple packaging look very nice and chic, and Dr Vranjes uses the finest essential oils and pure natural ingredients to fill your room with bouquet to enrich the air and remove unwanted smells. I ended up choosing TUBEROSA MUGHETTO.  TUBEROSA MUGHETTO ” Toghether for the elegance of their notes. Delicate and pure Lilly of the Valley, with a touch of Hyacinth, and intense and mysterious Assoluta di Tuberosa.  It relaxes and balances the ood while enriching the air with purifying components”. I still love my candles but a reed diffuser doesn’t have to be lighted, blowed out and you don’t need to trim the wick. For a busy person like me it is much easyer to maintain then a candle. Dr Vranjes reed diffusers are available in 5 sizes: The first few hours I didn’t smell the Tuberosa Mughetto very good so I was a little bit dissapointed, but then I remembered that i have been told to turn the bamboos after putting them in the bottle for 30-60 minutes. There is one downside to this product. The fragrance evaporates very quick, this means that you must buy the refil imediately because you need to add the perfume constantly to leave the level above the curvature of the bottle. The shop lady told me that a 100 ml bottle will last for six months but Dr Vranjes claims that it will last me 3 to 4...
GROWN ALCHEMIST

GROWN ALCHEMIST

Vandaag review ik een aantal producten van het merk Grown Alchemist. Grown Alchemist is Australisch en 100% bio organic. Dagelijse verzorging zonder synthetische stoffen en conserveringsmiddelen. Op de verpakking is duidelijk te zien dat de producten vrij zijn van: Lauryl Sulphate, Glycolics, Petrochemicals, Artificial fragrance, Animal derivatives, Synthetic colours, Silicones en Parabenes. Ik ben altijd op zoek naar organische merken. De verpakking, de ingrediënten, de geuren… Organische merken zijn vaak heel ‘clean’ en dat trekt mij enorm aan. Grown Alchemist maakt verpakkingen van gerecycled materiaal en gebruikt donker glas om de anti-oxidanten te beschermen tegen de invloed van licht. De amenity kit van Grown Alchemist bestaat uit: Vanilla & Orange peel handcream (20ml) Camelia & Geranium hydrating cream (12ml) Watermelon en Vanilla lip balm (12ml). 1. CAMELIA & GERANIUM HYDRATING CREAM Deze dagcreme laat geen vettig laagje achter en is ook niet bepaald vettig te noemen. Hij smeert heel makkelijk en hydrateert direct. De Camelia & Geranium hydrating cream bevat theunisbloem olie, jojoba olie, amandel olie, rozenbottel olie en macademia olie. Ondanks de oliën blijft het goed zitten onder make-up.Ik ruik duidelijk de geur van geranium maar ik ervaar het niet als storend.Ik kan mij wel goed voorstellen dat niet iedereen weg is van de geur.Goed masseren op het gezicht en de nek voor de beste resultaten. 2. THE WATERMELON AND VANILLA LIPBALM Deze lippenbalsem is vergelijkbaar met een transparante gel. Hij is niet vettig en de consistentie is wat meer aan de waterige kant, hij laat een behoorlijke glans achter, misschien is het iets te vettig. Het is mij wel opgevallen dat er niet echt sprake is van...
BYREDO CREME MAINS LA TULIPE

BYREDO CREME MAINS LA TULIPE

Byredo La Tulipe- Ik wordt altijd heeeeeeel hebberig van Skins Cosmetics, voor mij een paradijs op aarde. Bij Skins vind je niche merken, bijzondere geuren en de winkel zelf ziet er ook niet verkeerd uit. Kortom het is daar ge-wel-dig. Ik heb altijd een tube handcreme in mijn tas om bij te smeren zodra het nodig is. Ik houd enorm van rijke handcremes, een crème moet goed smeerbaar zijn, een goede consistentie hebben en vooral goed intekken. Byredo is goed geslaagd met zijn handcremes. Ik ben zelf de trotse bezitter van La Tulipe (inmiddels al bijna op!) en ik ben er enorm blij mee. Het is mijn eerste tube maar zeker niet de laatste. La Tulipe ruikt heerlijk, verzacht en verzorgt heel goed. Je moet wel van bloemen houden want alle drie de geuren zijn bloemig en fris, ze doen denken aan de zomer en verse bloemen. Te koop bij Skins Cosmetics Prijs: €25 voor 30 ml...
