In several beauty posts I already mentioned Mylène, a Belgian beauty and skincare brand, which sells through homeparties. Every couple of months, some friends and I come together at someone’s home, we gather around the table with some wine, tapas… and Mylène products! One of these products is an absolute classic : mink oil. Read more about Mylène’s mink oil!
As you probably already know, my husband and I went on a weekend break to Holland a couple of weeks ago. You could read already a post on Amersfoort in the tips ‘n trips, a post about our second day will be coming soon! But here on this beauty post I tell you more about what we did on the third and final day of our weekend getaway. This day was completely devoted to a visit to wellness resort Zwaluwhoeve in Hierden, Holland. Read more about our visit to this wellness resort!
It is important to scrub your skin frequently to get rid of all the dead cells. Now this summer I have been using Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster for face and body to get me a tan. The why’s and how’s you can read in this post. When using a self-tan product, your skin really needs that weekly scrubbing session or else you end up with layers of self-tan product that don’t look that flattering… Read more about the two body scrubs I like using!
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!
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. Read more about the Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster.
