L:A Bruket Broccoli Seed Serum Review

10994_large_c677162c-ab52-40f4-adcb-1293764d69b8

Pros:

Contains broccoli – which is something I never tried on my skin before.

Cons:

Comes in a glass jar.

More:

This serum got an uninvited – but very pleasent extra “dimension” – after accidentally dropping the glass jar on my bathroom floor – I put the remain in my fridge in a plastic container – and voila – applying the ice cold serum now feels beyond refreshing.

I have never used broccoli on my face – but having read its long list of beneficial properties – I was all game. Since broccoli is consider a superfood – being loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, I hoped that my post-winter superdry and very pale skin could get a good boost. Broccoli contains vitamin A (helps stimulate new skin cell production), arachidonic acid (calming effect) plus vitamins C, E and beta-carotene (reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation). So my expectations were hight – the result – the serum is like a light gel, gets absorbed relatively fast – and makes my skin feel very smooth and refreshed (especially since the broken glass jar ended up in my fridge – where it puzzles my boyfriend daily).

A big con is obviously the glass jar – which is very appealing visually but can be very unpractical.

ACO Stay Soft Lips Review

original

Pros:

The package is light and easy to take with you everywhere (like in the pockets of my hospital uniforms).

Cons:

Doesn‘t make my lips feel hydrated for a full 24 hours – like promised.

More:

My lips have been suffering from being back in this cold climate after enjoying two full months of sunshine..This lip gloss/lip balm makes my lips feel very hydrated, has a nice consistency (though it is boarding to sticky a bit) and gives a nice shine – but still with a natural look. The product promises to make your lips soft for 24 hours – I would say 3-4 hours would be more accurate.

Aco Protect and Restore Eye Cream Review

Pros:

Budget friendly.

Cons:

Smells neutral but with a slight hint of pharmacy.

More:

I have previously written about ACO, which is a  beauty brand you can get at the Swedish pharmacy. Being a general fan of pharmacy products, and believing that they are just a bit more trustworthy I have often turned to them for some budget friendly options when my wallet has been thin.

Using eye cream is rather new to me, since I am a bit lazy. But soon hitting my thirties I realised that I don‘t want to have wrinkles from smiling too much, around my eyes – no matter how charming they can look on other people – they are just not for me (I want to look like Sharon Stone). This eye cream is budget friendly, doesn‘t smell of anything and gets absorbed very fast. The package is hygienic since you don‘t stick your fingers into anything, and lasts for months and months. About the results – I‘m not sure you can really judge if a cream reduces you wrinkles, but to me ACO is a trustworthy company and I chose to think I have less wrinkles now – not because I smile less but because this cream is good.
