Kate Somerville's Goat Milk Cream has been consistently raved about for years and is something I've always wanted to try. When Megan and I did a swap around new years I knew this was the number one thing I wanted to request. I was super excited when it finally landed at my doorstep and I'm happy to say I haven't been the least bit disappointed.
After the very successful launch of the Dual Intensity eyeshadows Nars is now following up with the first limited edition versions as part of their Fall 2015 Collection called 'Private Screening'. The collection also consists of another Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in 'Telesto' which is a beautiful warm bronze brown. I've only picked up Pasipahae from the collection and that is what I'll be talking about today.
Rodin's Olio Lusso is one of those products I wanted to try for the longest time, but never did. Mostly as it's quite expensive and I've always got so much other skincare on rotation I never felt I could quite justify it. However, around new years my curiosity got the better of me and I bought it after all. It was all very exciting.
I had never heard of Pangea Organics either, until this year. Pangea takes organic to the next level, where it's also about sustainable production and using packaging that can be recycled. The products themselves are 100% plant-based, but the boxes the products come in is what I find amazing. The boxes incorporate organic seeds, so if you take the label off and soak the box in water you can actually plant it! I'm all for preserving the earth, so when I learned this I got really excited to try the brand and really wanted to like it.
I guess I kind of ended up taking a bit of an unplanned break from the blog, sorry guys! I had my brothers wedding and then I've felt a bit under the weather so this post has taken a while to finish. There's quite a lot of stuff here though, which I'm of course excited about. There's also a lot of good products so you'll probably get a mini review of at least something you've been curious about!
There hasn't been much of a summer here in Norway, but I've made sure to take advantage of the days when the sun and warmer temperatures did decide to peek through. Even without the typical summer weather I've still found myself gravitating towards lighter makeup and skincare as I usually do this time of year. Fall is just around the corner and even though I'm a bit sad I barely got to wear any dresses this year, I'm kind of excited as fall is my favourite time of the year! I've already started eyeing candles - but that's for next month! Now for my still-"summer"-july favourites!
Quite a while back I used and reviewed ( here ) the Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer. I was very happy with it and always meant to re-purchase, but never did. My skin type has since changed from combination/oily, to dehydrated, so my wishlist changed from the Light version to the regular version. Still I wanted to finish my other primers before trying it again. Then imagine my joy when I received the Photo Finish Primer as a complete surprise present! And now here is my review!
Since trying and being blown away by LING's Hi-Vitamin C 12% Anti-Oxidant Brightening Solution I couldn't wait to try more from the brand. I've bought several serums since and figured it was high time I review one of them, especially as I'm about to finish this one. Summer is also high-season for not wanting to wear much makeup, so I thought writing about the skin-perfecting Oxygen Plasma Potion now would be perfect timing.
You all probably know my love for La Mer by now, and following finding my favourite night cream and lip balm from the brand, trying another everyday product from the brand seemed like a logical next step. I'm an SPF everyday kinda gal, and so I decided to try their SPF 50 on a bit of a whim, but I am so happy I did.
You all probably know about my love for cleansing balms by now, and even though I've found several I love I keep trying new ones. Oskia is a british brand that was created when the founder saw the benefits of Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) which is an ingredient in this cleansing balm as well. It's a natural brand that has received a lot of acclaim and blogger raves over the years and I always wanted to try the brand for myself. What better to start off with than their cleansing balm?
