Lider du av eksem?

Hej på er! Idag vill jag uppmärksamma några produkter till er som lider av eksem. Som tur är har jag själv aldrig drabbats, men av vad jag har sett hos personer i min omgivning som har eksem så är det något man helst vill slippa.

En av mina vänner Alexandra Björsell driver bloggen Ecosmart och hon tipsade om några naturliga produkter som hjälpte henne markant med att få bukt med sina eksem. Märket heter Secuvie och som sagt är deras produkter helt naturliga.
Jag tror att det absolut bästa är att alltid använda naturliga produkter eller ”botemedel” när det är något som inte står rätt till. Att kleta in huden i kemikalier och hoppas att det hjälper är inte något som känns rätt. Därför ville jag passa på att tipsa om dessa produkter ifall någon av er läsare tampas med eksem. Gå gärna över till Alex blogg och kolla på hennes före- och efterbilder! Det är en otrolig skillnad efter bara en veckas behandling! Hennes inlägg kan du hitta HÄR.

Hoppas ni får en fortsatt bra fredag och en fin helg! :)

Snygg blazer från Gina Tricot

Hej allihopa! Här kommer ett litet inlägg från hotellrummet på Mallorca :D Satt å nätshoppade lite så här på kvällskanten när jag hörde en liten katt jama utanför balkongen. Utomlands finns det ju alltid en massa hemlös, magra katter som springer omkring, vilket gör ont i ett kattälskande hjärta som mitt! Snodde med lite lax från frukostbuffén imorse som jag gick ut och gav honom, så ikväll fick han åtminstonne en ordentlig middag

Men, tillbaka till nätshoppingen :) Hittade en supersnygg blazer som nyss kommit in på Gina Tricots webbshop, en svart med synliga silverdragkedjor på fickorna. Så snygg! :D Jag har verkligen en förkärlek till kavajer, trots att jag inte själv bär dem så ofta. Och denna skulle jag gärna ha i min samling :) Och svart och silver är alltid en vinnande kombination hos mig! Vad tycker ni?

Kavajen är som sagt från Gina Tricot och kostar 299 kr. Du kan hitta den HÄR.

Hissa & Dissa: Naturliga Solskyddsprodukter

Hej! Eftersom vi är mitt uppe i semestertider tänkte jag dela med mig av ett par recensioner av naturliga solskyddsprodukter. Vare sig du är i Sverige eller på semester utomlands är det jätteviktigt att du skyddar din hud mot solen, året runt. Här kommer mina tankar om 4 naturliga solskyddsprodukter. Kolla in videon eller läs recensionerna längre ner. Min absoluta favorit hittar ni längst ner :)


 
Jason Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30

 

Denna solskyddsprodukt från märket Jason är anpassad till väldigt känslig hud, men en stund efter att jag applicerat den på mitt ansikte börjar det klia. Jag tror att detta inte beror på produkten i sig, utan att jag, som flera andra, är känslig mot zinkoxid som är den dominerande solskyddande ingrediensen (14,5%) tillsammans med Titanoxid (2%). Krämen har en väldigt tjock konsistens som gör krämen svår att jobba in i huden och som med de flesta naturliga solskyddskrämer lämnar de en vit film på huden.

 


Detta är inte en produkt som jag 
rekommenderar att ha på daglig basis under smink, men den fungerar bättre till kroppen, speciellt på axlar och andra områden som lätt blir brända. Eftersom man får den typiska vita beläggningen kan detta vara en bra produkt att ha på stranden eller vid poolen, snarare än ute till vardags, men det är så klart upp till var och en. Den tjocka konsistensen är något uttorkande så jag rekommenderar att spä ut den med någon typ av olja eller hudkräm vid applicering för att krämen lättare ska sjunka in i huden och appliceras jämt.  

Sammanfattningsvis är denna solkräm okej till kroppen, men inte en topprodukt till ansiktet. Du kan hitta produkten HÄR.

Betyg: 3 av 5

 


+ Hög SPF
+ Skyddar mot både UVA och UVB
+ Lång hållbarhetstid (bäst före-datum)
+ Bra skydd till axlar och andra "högpunkter"

- Börjar klia i ansiktet
- Tjock, svårjobbad konsistens
- Lämnar den typiska "vita filmen" på huden
- Något uttorkande

Earth's Best Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30
 

Denna produkt, som ingår i Jasons sortiment, är anpassad speciellt till bebisar och deras känsliga hud. Precis som den ovan nämnda solkrämen från Jason är de skyddande ingredienserna Zinkoxid (14,5%) och Titandioxid (2%). Dessa två produkter är mycket snarlika och mitt omdöme blir det samma. En tjock, svårjobbad kräm som passar bättre till kroppen än ansiktet. Lämnar en vit film på huden och får det att klia i ansiktet på mig efter ett tag. Något uttorkande så fungerar bra att blandas med en olja eller olja vid applicering. Men tänk på att SPF:en sjunker då krämen blandas ut. Det enda som egentligen skiljer dessa produkter åt är att denna är snäppet liiiiite tunnare och att denna även är vattenresistent, vilket kan vara bra. Du kan hitta produkten HÄR.

Betyg: 3 av 5

+ Hög SPF
+ Skyddar mot både UVA och UVB
+ Lång hållbarhetstid (bäst före-datum)
+ Bra skydd till axlar och andra "högpunkter"
+ Vattenresistent

- Börjar klia i ansiktet
- Tjock, svårjobbad konsistens
- Lämnar den typiska "vita filmen" på huden
- Något uttorkande


100% Pure Pomegranate Antioxidant Hydration SPF 20

Detta solskydd från 100% Pure är helt naturligt och vegetarisk med snälla ingredienser som inte skadar dig eller din hud. Den har en behaglig konsistens som gör att krämen lätt appliceras i ansiktet och sjunker fint in i huden. Krämen är vit till färgen och som med de flesta naturliga solskydd lämnar den lite utav en vit film på huden, dock mycket mindre märkbart än andra solskyddskrämer jag provat. De aktiva ingredienserna som skyddar mot solen är Titandioxid (15%) och Zinkoxid (10%), som är mycket vanliga i naturliga solskyddsprodukter.


Den bleka hinnan som uppstår blir inget problem om man applicerar en foundation ovanpå, men om du tänker ha krämen utan smink kan du se lite sjukligt blek ut. Jag tror att denna produkt främst är framtagen till ansiktet eftersom den kommer i en så pass liten förpackning (50 ml), men jag ser inga problem med att ha den på övriga kroppen om så önskas. Smart förpackning med pump som gör användningen väldigt hygienisk! Krämen kan kännas lite uttorkande till huden, så jag rekommenderar att du först applicerar någon typ av fuktkräm innan du använder denna solskyddskräm.

På det hela taget är detta en väldigt bra produkt, 100% Pure har överlag väldigt bra produkter om du är ute efter ett naturligt/ekologiskt alternativ, och jag kan rekommendera denna produkt som en daglig SPF att ha under smink. Du kan hitta produkten HÄR

Betyg: 4 av 5

+ Tunn och fin konsistens som enkelt sjunker in i huden
+ Börjar inte klia på huden
+ Skyddar mot både UVA och UVB
+ Bra förpackning med pump

- Lämnar lite utav en vit film, dock inte märkbart under smink
-Lite uttorkande använd tillsammans med en fuktkräm


Devaz Hallonfröolja (SPF 28-50)

Hallonfröolja är min absoluta favorit då det kommer till naturligt solskydd! De unika hallonfröna har en naturligt inbyggd SPF på mellan 28 och 50 beroende på kvalitén på fröna, så du får ett högt skydd mot solens farliga UVA och UVB-strålar. Denna ekologiska, kallpressade olja är av en torrare variant som snabbt sjunker in i huden så du behöver inte oroa dig för att huden ska kännas fet eller oljig länge. Och eftersom det är just en olja agerar den på samma gång som en fuktkräm, så du behöver inte använda en hudkräm innan du applicerar ditt solskydd.

Fungerar fint som primer under smink och lämnar ingen typisk vit film som är vanligt hos andra naturliga solskyddsprodukter. Den går därför även utmärkt att använda även om du inte ska ha smink, och är även en perfekt solskyddsprodukt till resten av kroppen.

Jag rekommenderar verkligen denna produkt, vare sig du är ute efter en SPF till ansiktet eller kroppen. Gammal som ung, man som kvinna, även bäbisar kan säkert använd denna produkt och få ett perfekt skydd mot solen. Jag har köpt min hallonfröolja HÄR. jag valde även att beställa till en pump för 9 kr extra, vilket gör oljan mycket lättare att applicera och förpackningen blir mer hygienisk.  

Betyg: 5 av 5

+ Fin, silkeslen konsistens som känns skön på huden
+ Sjunker in fort
+ Hög SPF
+ Bra till både ansikte och kropp
+ Skyddar mot både UVA och UVB
+ Lämnar ingen "vit film" på huden
+ Fuktgivande

- Hittar inga fel på denna produkt!

Har du koll på innehållet?

God kväll kära läsare! Jag tänkte bara dela med mig av ett snabbt tips när det kommer till ingredienser i skönhetsprodukter. Många konventionella skönhetsprodukter (smink, hudvård, hårvård etc) innehåller kemiska, och dessutom farliga ämnen som kan vara skadliga för både din kropp och miljön. Detta är en av anledningarna till varför jag har valt att byta till naturliga och ekologiska skönhetsprodukter, men även på dessa kan innehållsförteckningen vara svår att tyda. Dessutom är det tyvärr många märken och produkter som utger sig för att vara naturliga och ekologiska när de i verkliga fall inte alls är det. 


(Innehållsförtäckningen för en ögonskuggepalette från Neve Cosmetics)

Oavsett om du använder naturliga eller konventionella skönhetsprodukter kan det vara bra att hålla koll på vad de svåruttalade orden på innehållsförteckningen faktiskt är, och om de är skadliga. I EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database kan du söka på ingredienser och ta reda på om de är skadliga eller inte. Resultatet visas i en skala från 0-10 där 0-2 (grön) är ingredienser med låg riskfaktor, 3-6 (orange) har medelhög risk och 7-10 (röd) är ingredienser som du definitift bör undvika. Ju högre upp på skalan, desto sämre med andra ord. I vissa fall kan du även söka direkt på en produkt för att få ut ett genomsnittssiffra över dess ingredienser.



Detta är ett mycket bra verktyg för dig som vill veta vad dina skönhetsprodukter innehåller, och jag har haft stor användning av det sen jag bytte till naturliga och ekologiska produkter. Så, vet du vad din foundation innehåller? Eller din hudkräm? Eller ditt nagellack? Kanske är det värt att ta en titt...

Tips från Neve Cosmetics

Hej på er! Hoppas ni har en fin ledig dag :D Själv har jag suttit den senaste halvtimmen och scrollat igenom sortimentet hos Ecobeautystore.se och snubblade över ett naturligt mineralsminksmärke som heter Neve Cosmetics. De har ett fantstiskt stort utbud av smink, allt från basmakeup till ögonskuggor i alla färger du kan tänka dig! Jag måste erkänna att jag blev grymt frestad att lägga in en beställning, men jag ska tänka över saken och överlägga med mig själv innan jag bestämmer mig :P Här är i alla fall 3 produkter som lockar mig! Ni kan klicka på bilderna för att komma till produkten.Om någon av er har testat produkter från Neve Cosmetics får ni gärna kommentera och säga vad ni tycker!

Gå gärna in på Ecobeautyshops hemsida och kolla igenom sortimentet du också :) De har flera spännande märken med smink, huvård, hårvård, kroppsvård mm i flera olika prisklasser. Så det är definitift värt att ta en titt om du är på jakt efter någon ny naturlig och ekologisk skönhetsprodukt!


#1

Jag är en sucker för neutrala ögonskuggor, och sedan jag bytt till att endast använda naturliga och ekologiska produkter har jag inte använt någon ögonskugga alls. Så ni kan ju tro att det kliar i fingrarna nu när jag hittat den här! 10 naturliga mineralskuggor för 329 kr. Inte alls så farligt tycker jag! Något som är bra är att man även kan köpa alla Neve Cosmetics skuggor separat och sätta ihop en egen palette, vilket är jättebra om man vil blanda neutrala och mer färstarka nyanser :)

#2

Denna ögonbrynspenna verkar helt fantastisk! Man får två olika färger på pennan, en ljusare och en mörkare nyans och dessutom en spoolie-borste, i en och samma produkt! Just nu använder jag min brow powder gel från 100% Pure som jag verkligen gillar, men jag måste säga att denna penna lockar! Den kostar 105 kr och finns även i fler nyanser, så du kan hitta en som passar just dina ögonbryn.

#3

Sista produkten för idag är denna hudfärgade kajalpenna. Det är verkigen jättefint att lägga i vattenlinjen för att ljusa upp ögonen och får dig att se mer vaken ut på ett kick! Tidigare var jag väldigt förtjust i min nude kajal från Rimmel, så det är inte alls omöjligt att jag beställer hem en av dessa i framtiden! Denna kostar 95 kr :)

Vad står på din önskelista? Let me know :D

Naturliga nagellack från Scotch Naturals


Hej på er! Innan jag började byta ut mina skönhetsprodukter till naturliga och ekologiska alternativ hade jag en ordentlig samling nagellack. Egentligen många fler än nödvändigt. Med ett fint lack kan man snabbt och enkelt piffa till en outfit, speciellt eftersom jag älskar att klä mig i neutrala nyanser. Då kan en färgklick på naglarna verkligen göra stor inverkan!

Nu när jag letar efter naturliga nagellack har jag fattat tycke för märket Scotch Naturals. De har väldigt fina färger och har fått fina betyg av sina användare. Scotch Naturals är veganvänliga nagellack som är fria från ethyl- & butyl acetat, nitrocellulosa, aceton, och tungmetaller som är vanligt i konventionella nagellack. Många nagellack innehåller till och med cancerframkallande ämnen, vilket man undviker om man istället väljer ett naturligt alternativ.

Nagelacken från Scotch kostar 150 kr st, vilket för mig är väldigt mycket pengar för ett nagellack då jag är van att köpa mina för 39 kr på Gina Tricot (som förövrigt har väldigt bra nagellack om man använder konventionellt smink). Så trots det breda urvalet höll jag mig tillbaka och beställde bara två, Paisley Martini och Highland Fling. Jag blev även väldigt sugen på Leprechan Lynch, men det var tyvärr slutsålt.

Jag inväntar leverans med spänning och återkommer med en recension när jag testat lacken ordentligt. För den som är intresserad köpte jag mina Scotch-lack på Softskin.se. De har många fler färger än de på bilden ovan, det var bara några av mina favoriter :) Vilket Scotch-lack skulle du villa ha i din samling?

Collective Haul: Vår- & sommarkläder

Oops! Har blivit lite utav en shoppoholic på senaste tiden :P Jag var trött på att bara se mörka, trista vinterkläder när jag öppnade garderoben, så jag bestämde mig för att köpa lite vår- och sommarkläder. Och lite blev ganska mycket. Okej, väldigt mycket... Men nu har jag så jag klarar mig ett bra tag! :D 

Kolla in min senaste video för att se vad jag köpte :)

Ha en fortsatt trevlig fredag!

Min sminkkollektion: Konventionellt smink

Hej alla glada, fina människor!

Som ni säkert redan vet ska jag byta ut alla mina skönhetsprodukter till produkter av naturligt och ekologiskt ursprung, så jag tänkte att det kunde vara intressant att visa vilka produkter jag har och använder idag och i framtiden visa vilka produkter jag har bytt upp mig till :) Så här är en ganska lång och ingående video där jag visar alla mina sminkprodukter och berättar vad jag tycker om dem.

Några av mina favoritprodukter kommer jag länka till här, och om någon är intresserad av att köpa näst intill oanvända BareMinerals READY foundation i R110, R210, Urban Decay Naked eller Urban Decay Naked 2 för en billig peng så hör gärna av er! Eftersom jag ska byta till naturliga produkter så kommer jag inte ha användning för dem och jag tyckte det skulle vara dumt att slänga. Foundationerna från BareMinerals har jag bara testat en gång då de inte matchar min hudton, och Naked 1 och 2 har jag använt ett fåtal ggr :)

FAVORITER:
TiKei mineralfoundation 
BareMinerals Touch Up Veil 
Collection concealer (Endast UK) 
Oriflame Wonder Lash Mascara
Elf Mineral Lipstick i "Party Pink"
Revlon Lip Butters
Gina Tricot Nagellack

Revlon och andra utländska märken som inte finns så lätt att få tag på i Sverige kan du bla hitta på http://craycray.se :D

Naturligt & Ekologiskt smink från Naturisimo

Hej allihopa!

I fredags fick jag hem min beställning från Naturisimo.com, en engelsk sida som säljer naturliga och ekologiska skönhetsprodukter. Eftersom jag ska byta ut hela mitt skönhetsarsenal till naturliga och ekologiska produkter har jag sökt frenetiskt på nätet de senaste veckorna för att hitta de bästa märkena och produkterna. Jag snubblade över Naturisimo via Google och köpte 4 artiklar: en cake eyeliner från Nvey Eco och tre läppstift från Beauty Without Cruelty.





Denna eyeliner
hade jag även sett på svenska sidor och den verkar vara mycket omtyckt av de som testat den. Den kan användas aningen blöt eller torr, beroende på om man vill ha skarpa linjer eller en mer smokey look. Den är certifierad ekologisk och är tillverkad i Australien.

Anledningen till att jag valde att beställa denna produkt från Naturisimo framför en svensk sida är att priset var betydligt lägre i England. Naturisimo har även gratis frakt, och enligt min mening snabb leveranstid för att vara från utlandet, 5-9 arbetsdagar. Det ska bli spännande att testa denna och se om även jag kommer uppskatta den :) Eyelinern finns även i brunt för den som är intresserad.


Sen plockade jag även upp 3 st läppstift från BWC. Dessa naturliga läppstift har en högpigmenterad, mjuk och krämig formula som inte torkar ut läpparna. Jag testade Rosehip igår och den höll sig i timmar utan att blekna. Läppstiftet höll sig även perfekt i extrem hetta (behöll det på när jag ångade ansiktet :p) så det passar perfekt till heta sommardagar.

Något jag märkte med dessa läppstift är att de lätt överförs till glas eller koppar, så pussa inte någon annan på kiden om du inte vill de ska gå därifrån med ett stort pussmärke :) När läppstiftet så småningom fadeas, tex när man ätit osv, så lämnas en fin tint på läpparna, så en del av färgen finns fortfarande kvar.

På det hela taget är jag väldigt nöjd med kvalitén på dessa läpprodukter och jag ser fram emot att använda dem mer!


Pink Crush - En vackert rosalila nyans med fint pärlemorskimmer. En lite ovanlig nyans för den vågade.


Rosehip - Ett rödrosa läppstift med matt, krämig finish. Superfint till våren och sommaren!


Pomegranate - En härlig ceriserosa färng med matt, krämig finish. En fin statementfärg! 


Swatshes :)

Nya tider!

Hej allihop! Jag har bestämt mig för att börja blogga på svenska istället. Sedan jag startade min blogg har jag skrivit på engelska, men nu känner jag att det är dags för en ändring på det. Jag hoppas detta kommer glädja er som läser min blogg :D

För nån vecka sedan visade Gina Tricot upp några kommande kreationer på sin instagram, och jag blev helt besatt av en av klänningarna de visade. Sedan dess har jag varit inne på deras webbshop varje dag för att se om den kommit in, och idag äntligen hade den kommit! 

Vitt har på den senaste tiden blivit min nya favoritfärg, vilket är väldigt annorlunda för mig. Men jag tyckte att denna klänning kändes väldigt passande inför sommaren och det var framförallt ryggen jag fastnade för, och så var den ju vit åxå :P Så nu är den beställd och förhoppningsvis snart levererad :) Dock måste jag nog vänta ett tag innan jag kan börja använda den. Sommarvärmen får gärna komma NU!

Kolla in klänningen här.


Snygg va?! :D

Fresh Spring Makeup

Hi guys! Now that the weather is getting warmer I've been loving using mineral foundation. It gives a very natural look and it's also much better for your skin than liquid foundation since it's natural and not so heavy. So mineral foundation is definitly one of my spring and summer staples. What are yours? Let me know in the comments below!

Here's a makeup tutorial on a fresh makeup look for spring, where I use my mineral foundation from Tikei. Check it out if you're interested, and don't forget to head over to my YouTube channel and like and subscribe! :D You can find links to all my social media in the right top corner of the page.

Have a good rest of the day! :D

Love at first sight





Hi guys! I've been on the hunt for a white leather jacket for a while now and I FINALLY found one! Needless to say, it was love at first sight. I spotted this at Cubus when Carl and I stopped by the mall after we had returned the keys to our old apartment. I wasn't even looking for anything, it kind of just popped up. But isn't that the way it always goes? When you're looking for something you can't find it anywhere, but as soon as you stop looking it just appears? :D

So what do you guys think? I've been really in to anything white recently, both in clothing as well as interior design. I think white is such a great color for spring!

My new obsession






Bought this beautiful bag the other day, and I'm completely obsessed! I absolutely love the mix of faux caviar leather and suede paired with the silver hardware.
It's a mix of hard and soft which fits my style perfectly! The bag is by the brand Fuchsia, which I have never heard of before, but I think this bag looks far more expensive than the amount I paid for it. A real bargain. Me like :D

Review: Clarisonic Mia 2

Hi guys! Today I want to share a review of the Clarisonic Mia 2 with you guys. For you who don't know, the Clarisonic is a device to clean your face. You can use it before, or after you remove your makeup, and you can use it both morning and night.

There has been a huge hype on the Clarisonic on YouTube and it got me curious to try it out myself. The Clarisonic Mia 2 is the sequel of the original Clarisonic Mia, and this one is more targeted towards sensitive skin. When you turn it on the brush head starts to vibrate and this helps deep clean the skin and remove the top layer of dead skin cells in a very gentle way.  It vibrates for one minute per use, 20 seconds for your forehed, 20 seconds for your nose + chin area, and 10 seconds on each cheek. The product claims to clean your skin 6 times more effective than just using your hands, and I have noticed a big difference since I started using this device.



In this review I'm going to show you pictures of how my skin reacted while using the Clarisonic for 4 weeks and tell you my thoughts on it.

The Clarisonic comes with the device, a brush head for sensitive skin, a travel case, a charger and a cleanser sample. I didn't use the cleanser that came with the product. Instead I used the Gariner Nordic Essentials Gentle Cleanser with Protecting Rose Extract on the brush after I have already removed my makeup. I used the Clarisonic morning and night. After I had rinsed the cleanser off my face I followed up with the toner from that same Garnier line, and then applied my day or night cream.  Both the cleanser and toner are for dry and sensitive skin and doesn't contain any alcohol. Before bed I also put a salicylic acid treatment on my breakouts, the same treatment that I usually use on my skin.  


BEFORE: When I started using the Clarisonic Mia 2 my skin was pretty messed up. Over the Christmas Holiday season I had eaten a lot of BAD things, and this really broke my skin out. So starting off my skin was worse than it usually was.  A lot of my breakouts was targeted on my forehead, but I also had a few on my chin and some on my cheeks. Usually I never break out on my cheek area, so this was unusual for me.





WEEK 1
: After the first week I had noticed a big difference in my cheeks. Almost all of the breakout were already gone, but my forehead and chin area was pretty much the same after one week of using the Clarisonic.




WEEK 2: After the second week my cheeks were still clear except for one huge zombie zit that came from an indulgence of chocolate. My chin are was clearing up and I noticed some improvement on the forehead as well. I had a few larger breakouts on my forehead, but most of the original breakouts were fading.  




WEEK 3: After the third week I had gotten a few new tiny breakouts on my chin. My cheeks were clear and the zombie zit was disappearing. The forehead was still the biggest problem area, but there was a definite improvement from the week before.




WEEK 4: I noticed most improvement during the fourth week of using the Clarisonic. Except for two small breakouts on my forehead and one small on my chin all of my previous breakout had completely disappeared. Left behind are some hyper pigmentation spots, but those take longer to disappeared. Dark marks after breakouts can take up to 6 months to disappear, so next I'll be trying to find a treatment to speed that process along.




FINAL THOUGHTS: Over all I'm very impressed with the Clarisonic Mia 2. I admit it's a little up there in price, but for the result I got I think it's well worth the money. I think it's so easy to use and it makes my skin feel super clean and soft. And I did notice a huge difference in the quality of my skin when using this device.

So in my humble opinion this is well worth the hype. Some people notice an increase of breakouts within the first week or so of using the Clarisonic, because it brings impurities that hides deep within your skin to the surface. I didn't notice this myself, but that might be due to the fact that my skin was already at it's worse. But if you notice an initial increase, don't worry. It's just how the process works. Just keep using the Clarisonic and you will soon notice the benefits :)

I hope you have enjoyed this review and that you found it informative and helpful.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to leave them in the comments below.

Review: ESCADA Cherry in the Air

Hi guys! Today I have a short review for you :) A while back I bought the "Cherry in the Air" perfume from Escada. I had been eyeing this perfume since this summer, but I never ended up buying it since perfumes tend to be on the pricier side of the beauty spectrum. But I had gone in to try it a bunch of times, and every time I sprayed it on me I just wanted it more. So when I saw it at a great price a little over a month ago I had run out of reasons not to get it.

When I first tried this perfume I was actually surprised how much I liked it. It has a sour scent to it that reminds me of this sour cherry candies that I used to buy when I was a kid. It is a very playful, fresh and young scent, maybe a bit more appropriate for the spring and summer time that the colder months, but what the heck? A great scent is always a good scent, in my opinion, no matter what time of the year it is.

The "Cherry in the Air" perfume from Escada is labeled Limited Edition, so I'm not sure for how much longer it will be around in stores. So if you're like me and have been wondering about this for a while maybe it's time to get it before it disappears. I think they should keep it around for longer, and since it has been the top seller at a bunch of my local perfume shops it seems the public agrees. This is truly a lovely scent that lingers for that fresh and sour sensation all day long. This is one of my favorite scents at the moment and I think I will get a lot of use out of it when spring comes around again! And I have to say I love the bottle as well. Red is my favorite color and this oval shaped bottle with the large, silvery cap looks great in my bathroom cabinet.  

If you are on the lookout for this scent, or any other kind of scent actually, I recommend checking online for good deals. I have noticed that you can save quite a lot of money buying scents online, so keep that in mind next time you are on the hunt for a new perfume :)




What is your favorite scent at the moment? Let me know in the comments :D

London HAUL!

Hi guys! I am so sorry that I've been so quiet presently. There has been a lot of stuff going on in my life these past few months and I haven't been able to keep up with a lot of things I normally would. Things has started to slow down a bit but there are still some things I need to sort out. When you think about the future it always seems so far ahead but then all of a sudden the future becomes the present and then your life kind of crumbles.

So, on a more positive note; My boyfriend and I went to London a while back and I have put together a haul video with the things that i got. So there are some fashion pieces from Primark (God I love that store!) and some makeup products from Boots and Superdrug. So if you are interested to see what I got, then the video will be down below :) It would mean the world to me if you would subscribe to my YouTube channel! Also, leave comments below on what sort of videos you would like to see from me in the future! :D

On my nails: ”Punk” by Gina Tricot

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share a nail polish favorite of mine called “Punk”. It is this awesomely beautiful dark grey metallic shade from Gina Tricot, that definitely spices up your nails for fall and winter. This super opaque polish contains tons and tons of sparkle, which catches the light in the most beautiful way.

This is one of my favorite shade for colder weather months! It can really spice up an outfit and the sparkle makes the shad not seem as hard even though it’s a dark color. This shade has a really great color payoff and it also stays on the nail quite well. If you can get your hands on this polish this fall/winter I definitely recommend it!

Feel Unique

Hi guys! A few days ago I received my first ever order from feelunique.com. Feel Unique is a UK based site that sells cosmetics and skincare, and the cool thing is that they have free delivery world wide, which I think is awesome! :D


For the past month or so I've been on the hunt for an everyday facial sunscreen, because the one I currently use unfortunately break me out. But it seemed impossible to find a good, breakout free sunscreen in Sweden, if you're not prepared to pay a huge amount of money, so I decided to check out what they had at Feel Unique.


I ended up trying two different sunscreens, the first is from a brand named Jason and it's the "Pure Natural Sun - Mineral Natural Sunscreen" with broad spectrum SPF 30. It says to be for very sensitive skin, and that's really the reason that I picked it up.


The next one is from the brand "Earth's Best" and it's the Mineral Sunscreen for babies, also with broad spectrum SPF 30. I thought that a natural alternative might be kinder to my skin, so hopefully these two won't break me out! I will try them out and return with a review.


I also picked up a makeup brush, and it's the Real Technique's Expert Face Brush. I've had my eyes on this for a long time because I've heard so much many people rave about this on You Tube, and when I saw that Feel Unique was carrying Real Technique's products I just had to have one. I've only used it once, but I really like it!

Have you guys tried any of these sunscreens? What did you think of them? Leave me a comment below telling me what your favorite facial sunscreen is, it would really be great to have a few backup once if these fail.

Have a great weekend everyone and I will talk to you soon! :)

Review: Garnier Response

Hi guys! Today I’m bringing you a review of the shampoo, conditioner and hair mask from Garnier Response. This line contains avocado oil and shea butter, which are two ingredients that really nourishes the hair and gives it moisture and softness. The shampoo and conditioner are for dry and damaged hair, and the mask is for very dry hair.


The entire line is very inexpensive, and for the price I have to say that I am fairly impressed! I first bought these products because they specifically were for dry and damaged hair, and my hair had been feeling awfully dry for ages!

 

Let’s start with the shampoo. In my opinion this product really does get my hair clean. I can’t find any product residue after washing my hair, which is good. It has a nice, fresh smell and the consistency is very nice and on the thicker side. The shampoo is also paraben and silicon free, which is nice. One thing though is that you have to be really careful when you squeeze the product into your hand. The bottle has a fairly big opening and if you just squeeze the bottle a little bit you will still get a lot of product out. The first time I used this I was using the normal amount of “force” that I use with any other shampoo bottle, and ended up filling my entire palm full of product in a second. Luckily I managed to get the product back into the bottle, but be careful with this if you decide to try this product. 


Moving on to the conditioner. This product is paraben and silicon free. I have tried similar products before and found them to e really drying for my hair, but this product is not.  I feel that it gives me a lot of moisture and after using the shampoo and conditioner together I really notice a difference of the condition of my hair. It is softer and not as dry, so I think these two products keep their promises. Another positive aspect of the shampoo and conditioner is the packaging. Both bottles are designed so that they can stand both upright and upside down, which comes in handy once you start running out of product. A big plus in my eyes! 


My favorite product of this line is definitely the hair mask! After the first time I used this I was completely hooked, and I have been implementing this into my hair care routine once a week ever since. It has a really thick, creamy consistency, and a lovely scent of shea butter. 


The jar sais to leave it in for 3 minutes and the rinse it out, but what I’ve been doing is that after I shampoo my hair I get out of the shower, apply this generously all over my hair and tie it into a bun on top of my head. Then I put a plastic bag over my hair and secure it with a hair tie, and then put a woolly hat on top for added heat. The plastic bag keeps the hair and product from drying out and the hat provides heat which help activate the product.

I usually keep this on for about 45-60 minutes while I do a facial and shave my legs, and then I take everything off and rinse it out in the shower. This leaves my hair feeling so incredibly soft! It’s truly an amazing feeling, and once my hair is dry it doesn’t feel weighed down. It’s just airy, soft and shiny. What more could a girl want? 


I give this line a 4 out of 5 in overall grade. I recommend these products if you have dry hair or just want a paraben and silicon free alternative that doesn’t dry your hair out.  And for the low price I think these products are really, really good. I would definably repurchase all of these products, but especially the hair mask is going to stay in my hair care routine for a long, long time!

I hope you have enjoyed this review! If you have tried any of these products, please leave a comment below with your thoughts :)

First Impression Review: H&M Liquid Eyliner

Hi guys! The other day I posted a makeup and jewellery haul on my blog and one of the things I bought was a liquid eyeliner pen from H&M. If you missed this haul and want to go read it, click here :)

If you did read it, you will know that I swatched the eyeliner and was a little unsure of the color payoff. It just seemed not to be as black as I would have wanted, because I like my eyeliner to be as black as possible. Now I have tried it for the first time and thought I’d give it a first impression review.

I will judge this product based on 5 criteria: Application, Color payoff, Lasting power, Price and Packaging. I will score it on a scale from 0-5 on all the criteria and in the end give it an overall grade from 0-5. So, let’s get started!  :)


First things first, I found the application quite tricky. It was hard to get an even thickness of the line and I had a hard time following my eye shape. I had to start over a few times to get the result in the pictures below. This might not be 100% due to the product, because I’m not the best at applying liquid liner, but I have had bigger success with other similar products. 
Application: 3

When it comes to color payoff, which was an initial concern of mine, the eyeliner actually surprised me. On the eye area I find that the color performs much better than when I swatched it on my hand, so I’m happy with that. It’s definitely not the blackest of blacks color wise, but black enough for me :)
Color payoff: 4

I found the lasting power of this product to be quite good. I didn’t wear an eye primer underneath, and the color lasted fine throughout the day. It didn’t smudge on me, which is good. At the end of the day I found the wings closest to my outer tear duct to be slightly faded, but that is to be expected I think. One thing though is that it is not at all waterproof. During the application I had to start over a few times and the product completely melts away when using a wet q-tip. This makes the eyeliner very ease to remove at the end of the day but I would not recommend using this on a rainy day.
Lasting power:  4

When it comes to the price I have nothing negative to say. It costs 39.90 SEK, which is about $5-6, £3-4 and 4,5 EUR. So I don’t think you can find anything less expensive.
Price: 5 

Last but not least, we have the packaging. I find this to be very simple and elegant. Nothing out of this world but the color combination of black and silver is something I enjoy. The cap seems very secure, so if you carry this with you in your purse it won’t come off. It seems very tight so I don’t think that the product will dry out quickly either. The only downside I find is that the cap doesn’t fit on the back of the pen, which I found slightly enjoying. I like placing my cap there whilst applying liner because then I don’t lose it. This cap is also clear, which makes it harder to spot among your other things.
Packaging: 4





The H&M eyeliner pen scored high on most of my criteria, and the overall grade is 4. I would maybe want to retract some percentage due to the fact that it is so un-waterproof, but since the product doesn’t state to be waterproof I don’t think that would be fare. But for wearing on a daily basis I would prefer my eyeliner to be more, at least water resistant, like I find my kohl pencil to be. For daily use I find this to be a little unstable for my taste since you can’t control the weather. But this is just my opinion and for indoor wear this eyeliner works beautifully.

I would recommend this product to someone who spends a lot of time indoors or in sunny weather, or if you, like me, are a newbie at applying liquid liner and want a good, inexpensive liner to practice with. Even though I found the application to be tricky with this product, I think that once you’ve mastered this, no liquid eyeliner pen will be a problem :)

I hope you have enjoyed this first impressions review and I’ll talk to you soon! :D

It's all about the shades

Hi guys! I’ve been doing a bit of online shopping these past few days, I kind of get hooked, not so good for my bank account :S I saw this outfit from Forever21 and fell in love with the picture! It just looks so chic, and I wish I would have the guts to wear it, but I’m not that gutsy unfortunately. Practically all of these pieces are out of my comfort zone, but somehow I still really, really love this outfit.

I really did like the glasses thought. I’ve been looking for a nice round shape of shades, but unfortunately they didn’t have them on the site. But I did find a very similar pair from H&M’s website that I’m currently waiting for to arrive :)

What are some trends that you’d like to wear but don’t feel brave enough to? Let me know in the comments!




The H&M shades. Find them here.

Haul: Black & Silver

Hi guys! I just came back from the mall and thought I’d share a few of the things that I got :) When I came home and looked through the items I noticed a theme; they are all in black or silver :P


I mostly bought jewelry, but I also picked up two makeup items. I only went to two stores but ended up with 6 items :P



This leather/metallic bracelet I found on sale at Lindex for only 40 sek, which I’m very happy about! It has a button securing/releasing the leather strap.


Also on sale at Lindex (for 30 sek) I got these metallic triangular earrings. I’m actually going to dissemble these and make a necklace out of one of them :) What to do with the other one I don’t know :P Any suggestions? 



At H&M I got this statement necklace in distressed silver. Once again its triangular, which has kind of become my thing recently, and it’s got this hard, edgy look which is right up my alley. This was 99 sek.



Also from H&M I picked up this silver metallic chain bracelet with a metal plate in the middle. I have very small wrists and I find it hard to find bracelets that aren’t too big for me, most of them slide right off, but today I managed to find 2 that fit me :D This one was 69,50 sek.



The first makeup item I picked up was a Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour in the shade “Infinite White”.
It’s a white shimmery/metallic shade that I am going to use for smoky eye looks. I have never tried any of these before but I swatched it in the store and it looked quite nice! I just hope I can get an even coverage with this, because I have noticed that white products most often don’t have the same kind of flawless and seamless coverage as other shades of makeup. This one costs 99 sek at Lindex.



Lastly I picked up a liquid eyeliner pen in black from H&M. I haven’t tried this one before and unfortunately seem to be a little weak color wise when I swatched it on my hand just now. I like my eyeliner to be jet black, but I will give this one a go and see how it looks on the actual eyes. THis eyeliner was 39,50 sek. 


So, that’s everything, guys! I hope you have enjoyed this small makeup and jewelry haul and I’ll talk to you all later! :D

Summer favorites

Hi guys! Aren’t these necklaces gorgeous? I love the look of distressed silver with the pop of turquoise, these two are definitely two summer favorites when it comes to jewelery! The one with triangles I bought on sale at Cubus, and the oval shaped one I bought last year at Affection :)

Summer outfit idea

Hi guys! I went to the park the other day to enjoy the sunshine. Summer is finally here and I for one am going to take full advantage of that. The last two summers have been dreadful here so if the sun is shining, I’m outside :)

Today I thought I’d share one of my favorite summer outfits with you guys. I am really digging the high-low trend that has been going on for a while now and this black high-low skirt from H&M is so chick and it goes with absolutely everything! Paired with it I’m wearing a graphic black and white T-shirt from New Yorker. I love the Aztec lettering, Aztec patterns is another one of my favorite trends, and here I just wear it tied up to go with the high waisted skirt. I’m also wearing my wedges from Avenue and my favorite summer nail polish Lemon (which I wrote about in my previous post). I am also wearing sunglasses from H&M as well :) 



(God I look pail in these photos! :O I do have some color, I swear :P)

This is the perfect outfit to wear over your bikini. It will take you to the park, the beach or for a shopping trip without looking out of place.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and that the sun is shining wherever you are! Talk to you later :D

A pop of color

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share my current favorite nail polish; Lemon from Gina Tricot. You might remember this from my shopping trip to Stockholm, I wrote a post featuring this nail polish along with two other once from Gina Tricot, along with my Grease Lightning from Lush and my makeup sponge. Anyways, ever since I got this polish I have been loving it! I have painted and repainted my nails with this lovely yellow and I think it’s such a great shade for spring and summer :D




The first time I used it I thought it was a little hard to get an even coverage without my nails looking streaky, especially on my right hand since I’m a righty. But practice make perfect, and after a few times I got the technique down :) I wear this shade on both fingers and toes, and it’s such a happy pop of color to go with any summer outfit! I think this shade especially looks great with a tan.

They still sell this shade in stores, so I definitely recommend checking it out if you want a summery yellow shade :)

What is your favorite shade for the summertime? Let me know in the comments below! :D

The 3012 Series


Finnish designer Mats Lönngren has designed a series of outstanding watches for Hygge. These watches have a sleek and modern design, and are truly unique! I have never seen a design quite like it. I especially love the black and orange combination, it’s the clear favorite for me :)

If you would like to own one of these bad boys you can get them online at Dezeen’s web store, but the price is £135-150 depending on which model you want. This is how the product is presented on the web site: “The 3012 Series by Finnish designer Mats Lönngren for Hygge tells time using two rotating disks instead of traditional hands. The two disks are layered on top of each other. The bottom larger disk indicates the hours and the smaller top disk marks the minutes. The disks are different colours to allow the wearer to distinguish between the hours and minutes.

Lönngren designed the watch with quality and simplicity in mind. Each disk features a small triangular arrow extruding from the edge to tell the time. The crown sits flush with the case allowing it to be pulled out only when necessary. The watch has a rubber strap and a stainless steel case that has been sand blasted to create a matte finish. There are three colours available: white and orange, black and orange and white and grey.”

Don't they look awesome? :D

New in

Hi guys! I completely forgot that I had promised to show the things I bought while I was in Stockholm. As I said in my previous post I didn't get a whole lot, but I thought I'd show you anyway :) I leave links to everything if you want to check them out, just click the name.  

The first thing I got was 'Grease Lightning' from Lush. This is my first ever Lush product and I am really looking forward to using it. 
Grease Lightning is a spot treatment that gets rid of blemishes. According to Lush it:
 - Gets rid of ‘unwelcome visitors’: Everyone can use Grease Lightning on unsightly blemishes.  
- For a matte finish: Grease Lightning also works well to control excess oil, especially your T-zone.
- 500 green grapes in every batch: Combat the dirt that builds around spots with fresh green grapes.

I will try this out for a few weeks and then come back with a review :)

The next thing I bought was three nail polishes from Gina Tricot. If you buy three you get a discount, so that's why I picked up so many. I got the shade 'Lemon', which is a soft neon yellow.

The next shade is called 'Blue Bug' and is almost a holographic shade. It reminds me of the oil spills you sometimes see at gas stations, she polish shifts color from a greenish blue to a beautiful purple.
The last one is called 'Luxurious' and is a soft nude, champagne color with lots of sparkle. 
From Gina Tricot I also got a beauty buffer, or makeup sponge, which I have used to blend in my concealer. So far it has worked fine :)
So that's everything I got whilst in Stockholm :) I hope you have enjoyed this post and I'll talk to you later!

Fire Coral

Hi guys! Sorry I have been a little off the grid lately. My life is pretty hectic right now with putting the final touches on our essay before graduation so school has taken up a lot of my time. I promise I’ll do better soon :)

Today I wanted to share a kickass nail polish with you guys! This shade, that I have been wearing on my nails this week, is ‘Fire Coral’ from E.L.F. It’s perfect for the transition into summer! I find it to be a more orangey red kind of tone, rather than a coral which the name states. This fiery shade will definitely get you noticed and get your nails hot for summer! :D




I have my fair share of E.L.F nail polishes, and I have to say that I like most of them very much. They have a large variety of colors and the formula and lasting power is great for the price. I find buying more inexpensive nail polishes is the best alternative for me, because I find that they have about the same lasting power, if not better, than more expensive nail polishes. The thing about the E.L.F nail polishes though is that they do a very poor job with translating the actual color of the polish onto their website. You can’t trust that the shade you see on your screen is the one you are going to get. Some pictures are too dark, whilst others are two light, and some completely different on all points. I once ordered the shade ‘Champagne’, which on the site looked like a soft and light champagne color, but what I received was a dark pinkish brown kind of shade that I have never seen anywhere else in my life. But apart from that one, I like all the other shades I have bought :)

Have you ever tried a E.L.F nail polish? What are your thoughts on the matter?

Hi guys! Got these bad boys the other day :) Found them at a store in Örebro where they were on sale, but of course they did not have my size. So when I got to Karlstad I looked for theme there and luckily they had my size! :) But then, of course, they weren't on sale so I had to get them at full price. But I think they are worth it! They will go perfectly with everything in my closet this summer :D

Fashion with flare

Hi guys! I want to show you some really beautiful fashion statements, but I do this with a WARNING. The following designs I’m going to show you are from the finale of Project Runway season 11. So if you are a Project Runway fan but only watch it on Swedish TV, then SPOILER ALERT!  So if you don’t want to know anything about the show in advance, click here to read my post on Steps towards a healthier lifestyle instead. 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!  SPOILER ALERT!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 


The looks I am going to show you is from a designer named Michelle Lesniak Franklin. She was my favorite designer this season, because she has the perfect combination of hard and soft. She creates fashion with flare, and I think her clothes are pieces of art.

The inspiration for this collection was a lone female wolf who has lost her pack and now need one last kill to survive, a metaphor for her own journey on Project Runway.



LOVE!



LOVE!



LOVE!








Not my fav. To me this looks a little 18th century instead of modern...




LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! My absolut favorit piece! The pictures does not do this coat justice! You need to see it move!





LOVE! Can you see the subtle wolf print? Really abstract and the colors are so pretty for fall!




Not my fav. To litteral. But the judges absolutely LOVED it. Sometimes we don't agree.... :P


LOVE!


I love the way she uses these earthy tones mixed with the hardware! It is just amazing! And I also love how some of her looks are even stronger from the back!

I couldn’t manage to find better pictures, but the clothes make a lot more impact in moving footage. I found this clip on YouTube where the final walk of her collection is shown, but if you want a real good look I will feature the final episode of Project Runway below.

Have you guys tried the Urban Decay Naked pallets? Do they live up to the hype?

Outfit of the day

Hi guys! My camera has arrived and I am super excited to get to know it and learn how to take great pictures. So far I have only used it on auto mode with some traditional point-and-shoot action, but I look forward to learning how to tweak the manual settings in order to get really interesting pictures.

My boyfriend and I went outside to get some pics of today’s outfit, but I get really stiff in front of the camera so I soon goofed off and did some silly poses instead. It takes some getting used to, being in front of the camera, as well as being behind it.

On me: Jeans – Gina Tricot, T-shirt – KappAhl, Leather jacket – Primark, Shoes – Diechman, Sunglasses – H&M.

Silver Lake

Good morning guys! I’m at the University waiting for Michelle to arrive so that we can continue on our essay that is due in about a month! We have about 27 pages right now, and we have to get that up to about 45-50, so we have our work cut out for us! While I’m waiting I thought I’d share another one of my favorite winter and spring nail polishes, Silver Lake.

As in my Spring favorites post, this nail polish is from Gina Tricot as well. It is a gorgeous light blue/turquoise/silver color with lots of sparkle. The way it catches the light is amazing, and I am completely in LOVE with this color.




The images doesn’t do it justice, the color is even more beautiful in real life. The turquoise aspect doesn't really show through in the pictures, it looks more silver here. This nail polish is in the same price range as the last one I told you about, and it is really inexpensive. I also think that it last just as well as more expensive nail polishes so you do get a good product for a low cost.

The cool icy color makes this the perfect shade for both winter and spring, and I also think it can work in the summer if you pair it with the right outfit :) I’m not sure if you still can find this shade in stores, because I did buy it this winter, but on the website they have this similar shade called Blue Bug, which is the same metallic turquoise but with less sparkle. But if you do find Silver Lake in stores I definitely recommend it, or if you find another shade that you like; grab it! Because they don’t seem to stay in stores that long.

What is your favorite shade of nail polish right now? Tell me in the comments :)

Fighting breakouts

Hi guys! I have recently tried two new skin care product because I wanted to clear up my skin. When I was I suffered from a lot of breakouts, but as I grew older they kind of subsided to only a few. It got much more manageable and I didn’t feel self-conscious about my skin any more. Then a few months ago, just before the new years I started switching out some of my skin care products for 100% natural ones to be kinder to my skin. I found a few that works really well, but one problem I had was that my skin didn’t get clean enough so I got hundred of tiny tiny bumps in my face that made me look ridiculous, especially when I was wearing liquid foundation.

I started searching for new products and I found two new face cleansers to help me deal with that problem. Within just a few days of using the first one all the bumps had disappeared and my skin was back to normal again. But a few weeks later I stared using two products that I bought from Amazon that I had heard a lot of great things about on YouTube and blogs: the Aztec Indian healing clay and the Nutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask. The Aztec Indian healing clay is a 100% natural clay mask that fights impurities in your skin and deep cleans it. It is supposed to bring all of your impurities out from your skin and fight it, so after you have used it a number of times you will have clear, great looking skin.



The Nutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask has benzoyl peroxide in it, which is a treatment for acne. You can use it as an everyday cleanser or as a deep cleansing mask to clear your skin.



The thing is, that after I used the Aztec Indian healing clay the first time I got a few breakouts as a result of it. I thought that this probably was because the clay had brought the impurities from underneath my skin up to the surface and didn’t think so much about it. I used it once more that week and since I have used it once a week for two weeks, so I have used it 4 times total over three weeks time. I have also used the Nutrogena Clear Pore as a cleanser every day for about two weeks or so, and the weird thing is that my skin is now worse than it has ever been!

I have tried to find bad reviews on both these products but have come up empty handed. Sooo many people rave about how great the the Aztec Indian healing clay is and that they have used it for months or years and never are going to let it go.  Some has said that they did get a few breakouts initially, but that it subsided quickly. When it comes to the Nutrogena Clear Pore cleanser I haven’t heard anyone give it a bad review or say that they broke out from it.  

I just don’t understand what is going on! The clay mask is 100% natual, so that’s why I am skeptical to it being the source of my new breakouts, but on the other had the Nutrogena product is supposed to fight acne, not cause it, and benzoyl peroxide has always been a great acne treatment for me. Maybe there is some other ingredient in the cleanser that my skin doesn’t like, but that is hard to know. Anyways, the point is that my forehead now looks horrible and I got breakouts on parts of my face that I never had had before. It has been a fast transformation from only a few breakouts to a massive amount, as I said more than I have ever had. That’s why I find it hard to believe that it is only impurities from underneath my skin that has been brought to the surface, because then I would have gotten a few years worth of them in one go and that doesn’t seem possible.

Have you ever had this kind of reaction to any skin care products that you have tried? Since I don’t know which one of these products that causes my problem I don’t know which one to stop using. I’m thinking of stop using both and then when my skin has cleared up again give them both a separate try to see how my skin reacts. The sad thing is that I only wanted to clear my skin up, and now it has goon from the best it has ever been to the worst in matter of days! It makes me feel really bad and sad, because now it will probably take me months to get my skin back to the way it was before I started with these two products.

I’m thinking about using Basiron again. It is the far best treatment I have ever used for breakouts! It also had benzoyl peroxide in it and once I started using it around the age of 15 it really did wonders for my skin, and I used it all the way until I was about 18-19. Then I stopped because I got tired of always having to have white towels, the Basirone bleaches fabric so if you don’t use white towels or bed linen you will get nasty pinkish stains on them. My skin had also cleared up a lot by then I didn’t feel as big of a need for the product. But now, when I look like I have breakouts freckles all over my face, I’m thinking of buying a new tube. The price has gone up a lot since I first started to use it, originally it was 79 sek and now it has gone up to about 139 sek for the stronger kind. But it really is a great product and it last fairly long, so if you think of how long it will last you and the good result you will receive then the price doesn’t seem so bad after all. You can buy Basiron at pharmacies but sometimes they only have the one with 5% benzoyl peroxide in the shelves and you have to ask for the one with 10%.



What is your best products or tricks to fight breakouts or acne? Pleas tell me in the comments, it would really help me out? And as I asked earlier; have you guys had these types of reactions when you have tried new skin care products? And, have you tried any of the products I have mentioned?

5 tips for clear skin

Hi guys! Today I’d thought I’d share five tips on how to get clear skin. As you know, there are millions and millions of skin care products out there on the market, and all of them specializes on different areas and work for different skin types. Finding the products that work for you can be really hard, but there are things you can do to clear up your skin that that does not provide the use of these many different skin products. Today I thought I’d share these tips with you :)


These are all simple things that you can incorporate into your everyday life to get clearer, more radiant skin.

1. Drink lots and lots of water! This will bring your skin moister from within and you will definitely see a clear difference in your skin if you drink more water. You will have to use the bathroom every hour or so, but it is definitely worth it!

2. Keep your skin clean and moisturized. Make sure that you clean your face thoroughly so that all your makeup and dirt is removed. Moisturize your face to keep it from drying out. Also make sure not to touch your skin with dirty fingers. Always make sure your hands are clean when you put on your makeup or touch your face during the day.

3. Eat lots of fruit, vegetables and good fats. Fruits, berries and vegetables contain a lot of vitamins and antioxidants that are great for your skin. Blueberries and pomegranate for example has lots of antioxidants. Good fats are found in fish like salmon (omega 3, 6 and 9) and in nuts and avocado. Foods like wheat and dairy can also mess up your skin, especially dairy since it contains hormones that mess with your hormone balance, which can cause acne. Breakouts from dairy products usually present around the mouth and jaw line, some if you have a lot of breakouts in those areas or are sensitive to dairy products in general, your skin might benefit from cutting dairy products from your daily food intake.

4. Let your skin breath! Only wear makeup when you’re going out and wash it off once you get home and won’t be doing anything special. You don’t have to wear makeup all day every day. Let your skin breath, and as I said before, make sure it’s thoroughly cleaned.

5. Give your face some sunlight! Sunlight provides the skin with vitamin D and for me it works wonders on imperfections like breakouts. Just make sure to use sunscreen if you are going to expose your skin to a lot of sun, to prevent the harmful UV-light, skin cancer and premature ageing.

So this is five simple tips that everyone can do to help clear their skin! I hope you have found this information helpful :) What are your favorite tips for keeping your skin clear? Tell me in the comments!

Spring favorites!

After a very long and cold winter spring is finally here :) Where I live it is still about 10°C colder than it usually is this time a year, but when I went to the store earlier this week I saw that the spring flowers had begun to bloom in the ditches, and for me that means that spring is finally here!

Even though it’s still too cold to wear my new spring jacket that I bought a couple of weeks ago, there are still a few spring inspirited things I tend to stride towards. The first of my spring favorites is this nail polish from Gina Tricot in the color 110 Pool. It’s a gorgeous pastel turquoise color, the perfect mix of blue and green. 




I have to say that I really like the nail polishes from Gina Tricot. They are very inexpensive, comes in a large variety of colors, and on me they stay on just as well as more expensive nail polishes. I have a few of them, but this is the one I have worn most recently.

I’m not sure if this particular shade is still available in stores, but I could not find it online. Though they have a similar shade called “Candy Mint” which is a good substitute color. Find that shade here, along with the rest of their nail polishes that are available online.

Another spring favorite of mine, who coincidently goes extremely well with the nail polish I just mentioned, is this knitted sweatshirt from Lindex. This too has a gorgeous pastel turquoise color and fits perfectly for the more chilly spring days.


Though the sweatshirt is covered with holes it’s still quite warm. I wore this shirt with distressed black jeans and a plain white top underneath. And, of course, I paired it with the Pool nail polish and a statement necklace.  You can get the sweatshirt online here.

So, this was two of my spring favorites, what are yours? Tell me in the comments :)

Have an awesome spring day!
