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.

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!

A couple of weeks ago I won some products from Vichy. Can you believe how excited I was when the box with goodies was delivered ?! I thought I’d get some samples, so I was really glad with what was actually in the package… these 3 full size products 🙂 :

I haven’t used the sun protection yet as I had just started a new bottle. I will save this bottle for next year as the bottle I just started will last me through the summer.

I have been using the other two products though. Today you can read what my thougths are on the Idéal Body serum/milk. Read more about this Vichy body milk!

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!

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.
