At my local beauty store I prefer getting free samples of skincare products over fragrance samples. Concerning my fragrances I am quite loyal to a few favorites, so  if I get fragrance samples, they keep in my bathroom cabinet until I ditch them…  So skincare samples please !

Recently I got a sample from the Pink Perfect Cream from the Korean brand Erborian. Read more about this Pink Perfect Creme!

Coconut oil, the best beauty budget buy ever !

Recently I have discovered a few wonders and miracles of pure coconut oil. I stumbled upon a jar of coconut oil in my local beauty supermarket… it was hidden near hair colour and care for afro hair. I suddenly remembered some celebrity (whose name I forgot) stating,  that she was really taken with the wonders of coconut oil and revealing it as her beauty secret. I couldn’t remember what the hell she did with the coconut oil, but hey…  4,49 EUR for a jar of wonders… it couldn’t possibly be a rip off ?! Read more about the wonders of coconut oil!

Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for face and body.

A few weeks back I went to a dermatologist for a check-up. My husband goes every year so this time I’d thought I’d join him and made an appointment for the both of us.

As the dermatologist was examining my fully-exposed body (!), she spotted a dark spot on my lower back… She took a picture with her Iphone (hopefully not to share it…) and asked me if the spot had always been that dark… how would I know ! It’s not that I have eyes on my back you know (that would come in handy now I come to think of it…). I knew there was a spot, but in my opinion it had been there all my life and I didn’t actually notice it any more, let alone the darkness of it ! She wants me to come back in a few months’ time to have it checked again and warned me about sitting in the sun and going to a solarium.

The Mac products I bought.

Last week I went  to Mac in Antwerp to get a make-up tutorial. I have been using make up since I was 14 so you’d think I get the hang of it by now after nearly 30 years ! But of course my skin has changed a great deal since then and so has the use of make-up. So I thought it would be great to hear some tips from a professional make-up artist.
