Concerning fragrances I am quite a loyal woman (as I already mentioned in this post). In all, I’ve got 6 favorite fragrances. Usually I’ve got a few bottles I’m using alternately… according to the mood I’m in ! I usually have empty bottles of the fragrances I am not using at the time. I have the habit of sniffing these empty bottles quite regularly so when one of the bottles I’m using is nearly empty, I immediately know which one I want to replace it with !
So… six fragrances… As it is high summer I will start with two summer favorites : Parfum d’été by Kenzo and Fragonard by Fragonard. I use my other fragrances as well in summer, but these two I use most during summer months. Read more about my favorite summer fragrances!
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!
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.
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.
