Who doesn’t know the iconic “blue tin” from Nivea? The iconic cream has been around for a century now (the blue tin was introduced in 1925) and like in many other families, this has been passed on from generation to generation. In fact, this is probably the first beauty product I was ‘aware’ of, or paid attention to when my mum used it when I was still a little girl. I remember her calling it a wonder cream. Even now, … Continue reading
Another cleanser post today! I’ll admit I have been on a cleansing frenzy lately. Forget about regular makeup removers, milk, facial wipes etc. I’m totally intrigued by the latest cleansing hypes, especially the ones that were once feared. Who doesn’t remember the “don’t ever use oil if you have oily skin” warnings? Wipe everything you’ve learnt about cleansing off the table and start fresh. Now it’s all about cleansing oils & balms.

Nothing makes your skin look & feel more radiant and smooth like a good scrub. It has become my favourite part of bath time recently and a lot has to do with the Braun Silk épil 7 with brush head I got a while ago.

How can you not love the dreamy, fresh powdery … Continue reading
There’s no trip to France without a little skin care shopping at the French pharmacy. I don’t live that far from the French border, so I often make a little trip to Lille to stock up on some French skin care since it’s fairly cheaper there and the range of high-quality brands they offer is incredible. Let’s see what I got!
Do you ever have one of those days where you’re in a hurry and/or your hair is a little too greasy to be comfortable but not greasy enough to wash it? I certainly do. Especially with bangs, I find that they always get oilier much faster than the rest of my hair. So what to do when that moment occurs? The answer is simple.. good old dry shampoo. This product has been on the market for years and years only … Continue reading
