    LF Beautybox Januari

    Då var den där underbara dagen i månaden här igen. Dagen då LookFantastics beautybox kommer levererad till dörren. Älskar dessa boxar och det är alltid så kul att se vilka produkter man får med varje månad. Denna gång blev det:

    • En mjukgörande kräm från Dr PawPaw. Har fått denna tidigare hos Glossybox och tycker att den fungerar helt ok. Är som ett balsam att ha på läpparna, huden eller håret. 
    • Popband Active hair ties. Hårsnoddar som ska vara vänliga för håret och passa perfekt att ha håret uppsatt i när man tränar.
    • Swell serum. Ett serum för håret som ska vara väldigt fuktgivande och motverka frissigt hår samt kluvna hårtoppar. 
    • Gold dust sheet mask. En koreansk inspirerad ansiktsmask med äkta guldstoft som ska vara mjukgörande ända in på djupet.
    • Setting powder. Har aldrig använt setting powder innan så måste lära mig vad detta är först :p
    • Coconut skin mjukgörande primer. En mjukgörande och fuktgivande primer som är oljefri och baserad på kokosvatten. Ska fungera utmärkt för att ge huden mer glow samt fungera bra som bas för makeup.

    Jag är nöjd med månadens box och det ska bli kul att testa alla produkter för att de om de håller vad de lovar 😉


    And today it was time for that wonderful day a month where i got the LookFantastics beautybox delivered to my door. I love these boxes and it is always so fun to see what is hidden in them each month. This time i received this in my box:

    • A multipurpose smoothing balm from Dr PawPaw. I received this product earlier from Glossybox and think it works alright. It is like balm to use for lips, skin and hair.
    • Popband Active har ties. Hair ties that are supposed to be friendly to your hair and work perfect to tie your hair with when you are training.
    • Swell serum. A serum for your hair that will protect and renew your hair. Should be good towards split ends.
    • Gold dust sheet mask. A Korean inspired sheet mask that contains real gold dust. Supposed to help moisturizing deeply in the skin.
    • Setting Powder. I have never used this type of product before so i need to learn a bit about it before i use it :p
    • Coconut skin moisturizing primer. An oil free primer that moisturize your skin and gives it glow. Works perfect as a primer before adding makeup.

    I am very happy with this months box. And it will be a lot of fun trying out these products and see if they keep what they promise 😉

    Naobay Valencia

    Jag har sedan något år tillbaka varit förälskad i skönhetsprodukter från märket Naobay. Älskar framför allt deras rengöring under vinterhalvåret då den lämnar huden fräsch och återfuktad. Varumärket är dessutom ekocertifierat och har ett högt innehåll av organiska och naturliga ingredienser. Dessutom luktar deras produkter supergott. När jag flyttade till Valencia så hade jag ingen aning om att Naobay är härifrån. Men det fick jag reda på efter några veckor och nu beställer jag gladligen hem produkter från dem till ett bra pris med snabb leverans. <3


    // Since a couple of years back i have been in love with the beauty products from Naobay, especially their face cleaning products to use during winter time. It leaves the skin very fresh and moisturized. The brand is also eco certificated and have a high amount of natural and organic products in it. When i moved to Valencia i had no idea that Naobay was from this city. I found out after a couple of weeks and now i am happily ordering their products for great prices and quick delivers. <3

    The happiest day each month

    lookfantastic box

    Eller ja nästan iallafall. För 1,5 år sedan så började prenumerera på skönhetsboxar och nu kan jag inte sluta. Jag ÄLSKAR det! Även om jag inte använder allt så fungerar det mesta. Och är det något man inte vill ha så kan man alltid ge bort det. 
    När jag bodde i Sverige prenumererade jag på GlossyBox. Efter att jag flyttade till Spanien bytte jag till LookFantastic beauty box. Det är väldigt jämt mellan de båda, men jag måste säga att jag gillar innehållet i LookFantastic lite mer. 


    // Or almost at least. About 1,5 year ago i started receiving beauty boxes every month and now i can not stop, i really LOVE it!. Even if i dont use exactly everything, most of the stuff is usable. And if there is anything i know for sure i will not use, i can always give it away. 
    When i lived in Sweden i received boxes from GlossyBox and after i moved to Spain i changed to LookFantastic beautybox. It is almost a draw between them both but i must say that i like LookFantastic a little bit better. //

    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.

    lipstick colors

    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.
