It’s just so fab with bright colors on the lips, in particular when you’ve gotten a summer tan . Here are three of my favorites from e.l.f. Cosmetics Studio Moisturising Lipsticks! The first Coral Cutie just hs summer written all over! Flirty & Fabulous is hot hot hot with bronze golden skin and Velvet Rope is a fierce red, nice for a summer parties! See more swacthes I’ve made here.
Are you beach ready? I’ve scrubbed and smeared myself with various goodies from Mádara and Urtekram. In the shower, I love Brown Suger shampoo from Urtekram. Cane Sugar Crystals soothing and anti-inflammatory and keeps the scalp in balance.
The scent of lavender is always nice soothing, and this lavender balm contains herb decoctions of lavender flowers and oil from real lavender. Plus extra care with aloe vera, I love the smell .
In the bath the body also needs a hand! I love body scrubs and the lovely cane sugar crystals exfoliate the skin gently, filled with almond oil, jojoba oil, broccoli seed oli, lavender oil and eucalyptus oil! Yummy, almost good enough to eat . And it’s all organic!
When I come out of the shower, I switch between Mádara sculpturing oil and anti-cellulite cream, cause it is bikini season. The oil is super delicious and aromatic with vitamin-rich extracts of rose hips and barley. The oil tightens, tones and improves skin elasticity and prevents stretch marks. And that can always be usefull .
The anti-cellulite creme contains stimulating extract of hawthorn and horse chestnut combined with caffeine. I smear it on in a circular motion, particular on my thighs, that needs some extra stimulation! At least I feel more ready for summer, when I have cared for my skin and hair.
It’s always exciting to try beauty treatments, it’s great to give the skin a boost and get some glow back. I have been by Pure & Simple, located just at Vesterport. Here I tried a treatment with pHformula called Skin Resurfacing. There are four targeted treatments, anti-aging, pigmentation changes, acne and one for rosacea. I tried the last one, since I have sensitive skin and once in a while struggling with a rash. My face was cleansed, peeled and I got a lovely mask on before I was mosturized and had a touch up by a makeup artist at Pure & Simple.
pHformula is a Spanish-owned family business that is run by Fernando Bouffard, PhD, who is a pharmacist and fourth generation in the family business. The products are paraben and coloring agents free. You can see more about it here. I could immediately see some extra glow in my face and although I have sensitive skin, it diden’t flush up, and my skin felt moisturized and lovely.
I’m loving berry coloured lips at the moment . And e.l.f.’s mineral lipstick in Rich Rasberry is just absolutely perfect! 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.
