What’s On My Bedside Table

 

IMG_1040postIMG_1047postIMG_1045post

I try to keep the situation on my bedside table pretty simple. You can see just a couple of products that I use before going to bed because I do my evening skincare routine much earlier.

The most important thing for me is to apply lip balm because night is the time when we don’t drink and eat and it can stay on my lips for at least 6 hours. It’s the best time to nourish my lips and usually I keep a thick lip treatment near me. Origins Lip Remedy contains menthol and camphor which means it feels cooling on the lips. It’s really soothing and although the scent can be pretty strong and the consistency reminds me of a body lotion, I really like this product as an overnight treatment.

Next up is the foot cream and we all feel ashamed to talk about feet. I have to admit that I’m a little bit lazy with my feet mainly because I don’t like the sticky feeling of a lotion or a cream on this part of my body. Luckily, Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream absorbs quickly, smells amazing and nourishes my feet during the night.

I always keep a body lotion on my bedside table in case I’ve missed this step after taking a shower. I just love Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus Revitalising Sorbet because it has a divine scent, it’s lightweight but moisturising at the same time and you can read my review on it here.

Soap & Glory’s Hand Food is one of my favourite hand creams and I can never get bored of the smell. Lovely product along with their hand scrubs. I usually ”wash” my hands with the scrub before going to bed and then apply a thick layer of the hand cream.

The tiny travel bottle with no name, no colour, no nothing is actually a mixture of oils. I have sleeping problems and this little guy helps me feel calmer and sleep better. And although there are many oils inside, it actually smells of mandarins, it’s very fresh and nice.

Usually reading is part of my night routine, I like to read before falling asleep and using my Kindle is the most comfortable way to do it. I was a little bit negative at the beginning but I can give you so many reasons to try such device now. We all love the smell of paper books but we can save many trees by using this or similar little thing, you can carry it everywhere with you and you can load hundreds of books…

What’s your bedside stash?

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!
