Last week my boyfriend had a working trip to Denmark and he was told that they’d have a couple of hours around the city so, he asked me to make a list with beauty products that are hard or impossible to find in Norway. The list included mainly items missing at the drugstores here and was pretty short (because I’m nice). He couldn’t find all of the products and that’s why he decided to pick up something extra for me (because he’s nicer).
One of the unexpected items was the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Honey Drops Body Cream which I’m not sure if I’ll be keeping because my mom adores the series and since it’s the 500 ml jar, I think it would be a great gift. Honestly, I think he got it with exactly the same idea.
And since we’re on a body products topic, it would be nice to mention this wonderful Rituals True Happiness set with Organic Mandarin and Yuzu Shower Foam, Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood Shower Oil, Organic Mandarin and Yuzu Body Scrub, Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood Body Cream. I think it’s a great travel set, the tubes actually have very much product inside, it smells amazing even without opening it, it’s pretty and I can’t wait to try it. It’s a very nice set if you want to get familiar with the brand like me, I’ve seen it many times but it’s the first one that I’ll be trying something from them so, I think it was a good choice of my boyfriend.
Everybody knows the Batiste Dry Shampoo, this one is the original formula and he decided to pick it because he thought a girl can never have enough dry shampoos and because I haven’t tried the classic version.
I’m very excited about the Matas Natur Vitamin E and Organic Aloe Vera Leave-In Conditioner because I love leave-in conditioners. This one is from a Danish brand and if you trust my non-existing Danish, it’s without parabens, colourants and perfume. It has 20 % certified organic aloe vera and you can spray it on a damp hair after washing or to refresh and nourish it between washes. I love the packaging, hope I will love the product as well.
Next up are the skincare and makeup bits. There are two toners – Clinique Clarifying Lotion and Clarins Alcohol-Free Toning Lotion with Iris. Both of them are for oily/combination skin. Normally, I use rose water as a toner and I simply love it but would be interesting for me to try new ones.
I love facial sponges for a light exfoliation or when the face wash is a bit more foamy and it needs some more work to wash it off. These ones are Body Lab Facial Sponges which is perhaps a bit of a random item for you but I just liked the fact that there are 3 inside and I wanted them. It may sound strange to you but there isn’t a big variety of such things here.
The only product that I already tried is the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer because I just couldn’t help myself. I’ve mentioned that Rimmel is not available in Norway and I had several products from them on my list but apparently, they didn’t have them in Denmark either. So far, I like this concealer, I actually like it very much but would like to have several more uses of it to finally have an opinion.
I also had several shades wishes from the Maybelline Forever Strong Pro. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe it’s the same as Maybelline Super Stay 7 Day Gel Nail Color (different countries, different product names?) because the colour range looks exactly the same. Unfortunately, they had only Rose Poudré but I can’t wait to try it. It’s really sad that these nail polishes never came to Norway while everybody is raving about them. This one is such a pretty shade, I can’t even explain it now but I will try to make a post on it once I try it out!
