Always Having a Backup

IMG_1241post IMG_1246post IMG_1249post

Are you stocking up on your favourite products? Or at least having an extra bottle or tube of an important beauty item?

There are just a few things that I simply can’t have only one of. I’m a little bit scared that I can run out of them and see myself helplessly trying to find a replacement for the moment. As you can see, they are mostly skincare items.

I’ve mentioned too many times that my favourite moisturiser is the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care because it’s perfect for my combination skin and even if I’m trying another day cream, I always like to have this one around me. It wouldn’t have been a mistake if I included the night cream from the same range in this post. The night moisturiser can’t be found in Norway at all which is even more problematic for me.

Micellar waters have a steady place in our routines nowadays. They remove makeup quickly and can be a really good help in the first step of our skincare rituals. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is an affordable product, comes in a big bottle of 400 ml and does a great job in removing even more stubborn lipstick or mascara. Another one of my favourite micellar waters is the Eucerin DermatoCLEAN 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Fluid which can be used as a facial cleanser, eye makeup remover and toner. Usually I take off my makeup, wash my face with a face wash, then use this cleansing fluid to remove what’s left and continue with a second toner. It’s a really gentle cleansing water, it’s perfume-free and it’s suitable for contact lenses wearers like me.

La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Duo[+] is famous enough but in a few words it’s a great little thing to help unclog pores, fight against marks and reduce imperfections on oily/combination skin. It’s one of my skincare staples and I try to have an extra tube of it all the time.

If you’ve seen this post, you already know how much I love the Lilly Oil-based nail polish remover. It’s probably one of the best nail polish removers out there but it’s unfortunately available in only one drugstore in just several countries. I can’t recommend this product enough, if you have the chance to try it, don’t hesitate!

Last but not least is a product that years ago I haven’t thought I’d use. I just never seemed to know the benefits of applying something like this. Now, I love it so much and I’m trying to always have another tin of it although a little goes a long way. It’s the Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and I apply it on bare or polished nails, day or night. It’s not only good for your cuticles but for your nails as well. If you haven’t tried it, please correct this and get this little gem, you won’t be disappointed!

Haul: Burt’s Bees 30th Birthday!

IMG_0904post IMG_0906post


Last month Burt’s Bees celebrated their 30th birthday! I’m sure everybody knows Burt’s Bees and especially their lip balms but basically it’s a skincare brand that is not testing on animals, their products are natural and just wonderful.

Usually, when you have a birthday, you receive presents but Burt’s Bees Norway decided to give presents to the others! They organised an Instagram contest and I was one of the lucky winners. The prize was a box filled with their classics.

I was very excited because I genuinely love the brand, I’ve tried many of their products but there are also some items that I’ll be trying for the first time. I have to say that the box was so cute and wrapped with care, there was a hand-written personal message, candies, a balloon and it was simply amazing. A real birthday present!

Now to the products inside the box.
There is the well-know Beeswax Lip Balm and I’m pretty sure I have at least 5 in the different scents and formulas, this one here is the original one. Pocket-friendly, perfect for all year round but especially in the winter, one of my all-time favourite lip balms.

I’m pretty curious about the Res-Q Ointment because it’s a remedy for bumps, bruises, insect bites and all kinds of minor injuries. I’ve heard a lot about it but never tried it.

I found two hand products in the box – the Hand Salve and the Almond and Milk Hand Cream.

I’ve been using the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream for a very long time and I’ve actually included it in my first ever post on this blog, that’s how much I love it.

Last but not least is the Coconut Foot Cream which I haven’t tried before and sure I’ll get good use of it in the colder months.

Thank you for the lovely prize Burt’s Bees Norway!
