    In my Beauty Cabinet – Soap & Glory

    beauty products from soap and glory

    Dessa två produkter är från märket Soap & Glory. Jag köpte dessa på Boots under mitt besök i Bangkok men de går även att beställa online på Skinstore (detta är inte en affelänk). Jag gillar båda produkterna men måste säga att ansiktskrämen är min favorit av de båda.

    • Speed Plump All-Day Super Moisture Marvel – Jag tycker att huden blir fantastiskt mjuk och len av denna produkt. Den absorberas dessutom direkt och den fräscha återfuktande känslan håller i sig hela dagen.
    • Puffy eye attack – Väldigt speciell konsistens. Nästan som en tjockare mousse. I helhet så gillar jag krämen, den känns uppfriskande och gör huden under ögonen len. Däremot vet jag inte om den gör något mirakel mot ”puffiga ögon”. Jag kommer snart att testa en annan ögonkräm och sedan jämföra den nya krämen med denna. soap and glory review

    These are two product from the brand Soap & Glosy that i bought at the Boots store during my visit in Bangkok. But you can also order their stuff online, here for example: Skinstore (this is not an affiliate link). I like both of the products but i think the face moisturizer is my favorite of these two. 

    • Speed Plump All Day Super Moisture Marvel – I think that this product make my skin extremely soft and smooth. The skin absorbs the cream immediately and the fresh moisturized feeling stays the entire day. 
    • Puffy Eye Attack – Very special texture. Almost like a thicker mousse. In general i like this product, it feel refreshing and make the skin around the eyes feel soft. But i dont really know about the ”puffy eye attack”. I will try out another eye cream soon and after that i will out this one against that one to see what i think.  

     

    Prices for the products should be around 15 euro for the moisturizer and around 14 euro for the eye cream.

    Make up base favorites

    make up favorites

    Jag tänkte börja dela med mig lite mer av vad jag använder för produkter när det kommer till smink, hår och hudvård. I detta inlägg tänkte jag dela med mig av tre favoriter när det kommer till sminkbasen.

    • Smashbox Photo finish primer – Jag har testat flera olika primers men detta är min absoluta favorit. Tycker sminket lägger sig bättre ovanpå denna plus att den minskar synligheten av porer och fina linjer.
    • Bare minerals matte foundation – När jag vill ha en matt fräsch look så använder jag endast denna ovanpå min primer. Oftast på somrarna när huden känns solkysst och fräsch och jag endast vill jämna ut hudtonen lite grann.
    • Foundation från Clinique – En stor favorit under många år. Tycker deras lätta foundation lägger sig naturligt på huden utan att man ser för sminkad ut.

    Alla dessa produkter tillhör den lite dyrare kategorin när det kommer till smink. Jag använder inte endast ”dyra” produkter utan har en hel del andra tips till billigare priser som jag tar i ett annat inlägg. Varför jag valde att dela med mig av dessa idag är för att det just nu är 20% rabatt på alla tre produkter hos Kicks.

     

    // I have been thinking for a while that i should start sharing my favorite make up, hair and beauty products with you guys. In this post i will share 3 of my absolute favorite make up base products.

    • Smashbox Photo finish primer – I have tested a lot of different primers but this is still my favorite. I think the makeup is looking really nice on top of this product and it also help to minimize the sight of pores and fine lines.
    • Bare minerals matte foundation – When i am looking for a fresh matte look i use only this one on top of my primer. I usually use this during summer times when the skin is fresh and sun-kissed and i only want to get an more even skin-tone.
    • Foundation from Clinique – A big favorite for many years. I think this light foundation is looking very natural on my skin without making it looks like i have too much makeup in my face.

    All of these products is in the more expensive category when it comes to makeup. I am not always using ”expensive” products, i also have a lot of other make up products for cheaper prices that i would like to recommend in another post later. Why i am sharing this ones today is because Kicks has 20% off on all of these 3 products right now.

    My skins savior’s during winter times

    A lot of people, including me, are getting a very tired and dry skin during these cold winter months. At least i used to have problems with that during my winters in Europe. but this year i found something for my skin that have prevented that for 100% so far. My skin feels softer and more moisturized than ever. And that is once again thanks to GlossyBox, who sent these products to me in the beginning of the winter. And now i can not live without them.

     

    The best serum, moisturizer and mask for dry skin

    The first item is a serum for your skin from Ole Henriksen. The name of the product is Truth Serum. This serum gives you skin a boost of collagen and vitamin c complex. It is like a cocktail of vitamins for your skin. It tightens up the skin and make it glow. But it is also keeps your skin moisturized for a long time while it is also preventing early signs of aging and fine lines. The serum is free from oil and feels really luxury on your skin. I absolutely adore this product.

    The second on is also a product from Ole Henriksen. ”Sheer Transformation Perfecting moisturizer” is the name if the cream. I use this on top of the serum after i let the serum going in to the skin for a little while. I love the consistent of this cream because it is very light. It really goes in to the skin and leave it with a luxury moisturized feeling. My cheeks feels like silk after using these two products.

    The last one is ”Sleep repair renewal nourishing mask” from Mudmasky. This is a face mask that you apply before going to sleep and than leave it on for the whole night and wash it off in the morning. This mask is making winder for my skin. It repairs and protect it from daily damages and keep it balanced during the cold nights. I can 100% truly say that this mask have given my skin more energy and glow, it helps it looks less tired and reduces dark circles under my eyes.

    So here they are. My 3 favorite products for nice and soft glowing skin in the dark, cold winters. Than all products doesn’t fit everyone of course, but these ones really worked on me, and still does.

    I love lipsticks

    If i had to choose only two makeup products to use for the rest of my life. I would probably choose my eyebrow pencil and lipstick. If i only could chose one.. Well lets hope it doesn’t come to that. But lipsticks (and other lip related makeups) is one of my absolute favorite products in my makeup bag, and i have A LOT of them. In various colors, since i love to wear a little bit bolder ones sometimes. But most of them are in shades that remind me of these colors. So beautiful. You find them both at Nelly.

    I think red is my absolute favorite color.

    Lets talk about NAOBAY

    So during these past 6 months i have been getting Glossy boxes delivered to my home every month. And i also accidentally ordered two extra special editions because i must say, they are freaking awesome! Not everything in the box is of course, but most of it. So i will start updating you guys about the absolute BEST products i received from my Glossy Boxes. And i will start with something that i didn’t thought from the beginning would be something i would appreciate this much.

    Cleanser from NAOBAY

    This product is not only amazing for my skin, it also smells like heaven. Or actually, it smells like a set of Bambi towels and soaps that i had as a kids, which i LOVED! So it makes my love this product even more.

     

    almonds
    So why did i thought in the beginning when i received it that i wouldn’t like it so much?
    Well, i am not using thick cleansing creams. I think they are tricky to wash off and i always ending up black around my eyes. I prefer light gels that are easy to wash off. This is a gel in one kind of way, but it is very thick. I was very suspicious to start using it at first, since i thought i was just going to end up having to clean my face all over again with something else. BUT NO! This one cleaned my face pretty good, and it left the skin feeling very moisturized and soft. Perfect during those dark and cold winter months when the skin can get dry and boring.

    So here it is, i simply love this product. It is something i never thought about using but now i can not live without. The best friend for my skin atm.

    It is made from ecological oils such as almond and olive oil which help to moisturize the skin & promotes the natural cell renewal. It also contains apricot oil which are calming and refreshing for the skin and prevent it from looking tired and fatigue.

     

    So where do i find this product and how much does it cost?
    I received mine from Glossy Box but i did a run in Price runner to find out where the best price would be when i need to buy a new one.
    At Nordicfeel you will get a package with 75 ml for 139 SEK and with free delivery.

    I also saw that they have an offer right now that gives you a 10% discount on your order if you use the code: JANUARI when checking out. It is valid until 28/1 – 2018.

    My New years eve

    I have not been updating very good during the Christmas time, but i will start updating better from now on. At least once a day i will try to write in here.

    So how was everyones New Years eve?
    Mine was really nice. I have not been celebrating New Year in Sweden for years and i must say it has changed a bit. It has gone from awesome dinners with close friends and a huge house parties to small dinners with kids and the ones who wants to continue are going out.

    I miss the old days but this one was nice to, i got to spend it with some of my favorite people and was invited to a nice party in the city after. Rock party of course.

     

    new years dinner

    This was some of the dinner my cousin had fixed. For lunch during the day me and L had some lobster. And for dinner we had carpaccio (not me since it is beef), a toast skagen on crude straight and an amazing soup from artichoke.
    For main i had fish and potato gratin with a red wine sauce that contained chili and chocolate. Awesome.
    Dessert i had to skip unfortunately if i wanted to make it to the party before 00.00.

    New years party
    Here is some pics from the party. It was a really nice evening and we ended up taking the last subway home. I think we got home after 6.00… No wonder i was so tired on Monday.

    Glossybox September (August) Beauty and the city




    Beauty and the city

    So a couple of days ago i received my very first Glossybox. It was the box for August but since i ordered it a bit late and the delivery was a bit late it did not arrive until now, September. So it is not really the Septembers Glossybox.

    pink glossy box review
     

    So what was my first impression of Glossybox in general?

    I love it! It got delivered in a really cute pink box, that i will save for sure. And you open it up and it is just filled with these nice beauty products. I mean what is it not to like? And if the box would have anything that you don’t like, well just give it away as a gift and make someone else happy.

    What did August Glossybox contains?
    The Glossybox of August contained:
    – A liquid lipstick from The beauty crop.
    – A radient glow sheet mask from Beautaniq Beauty
    – A liquid soap with Verbena oil from Natural care
    – A Glo illuminator from Manna kadar cosmetics
    – A pink metallic slant tweezer from Pick and Pinch

    I have not been able to try everything yet. But the ones i have been trying so far is the face mask and the soap. And so far i am very happy with the products. The face mask made my skin feel really fresh and moisturized. I also learned a really good thing about face masks while reading about this one in the Glossy magazine.
    If it says that the face mask is supposed to stay on the skin for 15 minutes, do not  leave it on for much longer than that. Instead of moisturizing your skin it can start drying it out instead. Which make sense. Since all beauty products have active ingredients that starts getting old as soon as you opening the package, you should never use anything for too long since it will end up giving you the opposite result than you want. Well, you can read more about the lasting time of your beauty products here if you want.

    With that said. If you are like me and love to keep the face mask pretty much longer on your face than it is recommended on the package, stop doing that. I will from now on.

    glossy box beauty and the city

    The second product i have been testing so far is the soap with Verbena oil, and i really like it. It feels very soft and natural on my hands which is perfect since i have very sensitive hands. I am easily getting rashes on my hands when using too strong products and it is a pain in the ass to get rid off. So far this soap seems to treat my hands very nice, so i will keep you guys updated on that subject. I am sure there is more people out there than just me who has the same problem, lets help each other out!

    If the rest of the products are good is still to find out. I will probably try out the make up later today, especially the lipstick since i am a real lipstick lover.

    Shopping in Stockholm

    Shopping in Stockholm… god what i missed that. I love all the stores you can choose between and all the infinity of boutiques and shopping malls you can find. My last shopping round i managed to bring home a lot of goodies. I especially like the face masks that i bought from The Body Shop. They had some new Vegan face masks that felt really good on my skin. They even made some test to see what skin type i have before i decided to make my purchase of the products.
    I also love the face cream and the serum i bought from Lumene, i absolutely love their products. Adding the serum and the face cream after washing off the face mask made my skin fell totally awesome! By far some of the best products i ever had, and i found them on 20% sale, perfect!
    If you dont want to go to the store to buy the products you can find them to a cheaper price online too here.
