When a brand promises there is no need for needles because all it takes to keep our ‘plump’ faces is a mask, I sure have to try.

When it comes to my skin, I like it to be ridiculously silky soft.

Lately – when I am able to find a bit of spare time – I like to spend it at some at home pampering. Even when it’s simple things like taking a bath (something I should definitely do more often!), painting my nails or cutting an inch off my hair (yep, I am back at cutting it myself, let’s just say I am really REALLY bad at making appointments). It also helps me to try out new products that – when they are super awesome – change up my daily routine a bit.

BEAUTY BEACH ESSENTIALS

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

As you might have noticed by the amount of beach posts we are currently doing, we are quite excited about everything summer. This past week was all about surviving our first heat wave of the year (maybe even in years). And what better place to do so than at the beach? Whenever I go to the beach I tend to overpack in the beauty department. I mean when heading to the beach, everyone’s number one beach essential should be a proper sunscreen. But you never really know when you’re in desperate need of that rose water spray. Or a radiant lip crayon for that matter. Here’s a few of my current favorites.

SUMMER SKIN CARE 101

Tags: , , , ,

During summer our skin has just as many challenges to deal with as in the colder – less sunnier – seasons. While in winter we mainly have to protect ourselves from harsh wind and the cold (and don’t forget about the sun that can get super bright!), summer obviously asks for good care as well. A lot of stuff has been written about how to protect and take care of our skin. But what is true? To help us get through the summer without damaging our main organ, we have asked three experts – Brigitte Hoogdorp (Biodermal), Natasja Vallé (Yves Rocher) and Charissa de Ruiter (Kiehl’s) – about everything you need to know.

THE MIGHTY MUD MASK

Tags: , ,

Basic, fresh and no nonsense. Ideally, the package of this mud mask from Formula 10.0.6 sums exactly what’s inside. This is the latest addition to my beauty shelf, and even though the bright hue clashes with fellow products on there… She’s a keeper. There, I said it!

HOW TO GET RID OF COLD SORES

Tags: , ,

Time to talk beauty taboos. From teeny tiny red blisters to full on breakouts, we’ve (almost) all seen or had them: cold sores. And while the majority of people carry the virus and another significant amount experiences them, they tend to go hand in hand with shame. Oh, what to do with these unwanted guests? Nasty comments are one thing, physical pains are another. Since beauty is more than cosmetics and trends, I felt like it was time to shed a light on an often underexposed topic. From preventative measures to simple treatments, here are some first aid tips to nip cold sores in the bud.
