Emma S Warm Beach Body Wash Review

body-wash-270x360

Pros:

Smells of a summer beach – just like promised.

Cons:

Its price.

More:

This whole winter has been a looong longing for a summery and warm vacation – and finally its here (I‘m writing this post from sunny Florida yay – don‘t miss the layers). To help me getting through those cold days I‘ve read a few good books set in exotic places, watched too many episodes of Anthony Bourdains culinary adventures – but also used some body products whose smell of summer made me feel my bathroom was a beach. One of them was this Emma S shower gel  – which smells of coconut, sandelwood and fig. It lathers well and leaves a nice scent lingering on my skin and in the bathroom. And it doesn‘t dry out my skin – which I love. It‘s a bit pricey but one needs some luxuries sometimes and this is one of mine.

Emma S Warm Beach Body Oil Review

Pros:

Nice smell that makes you feel like you are heading to the beach, but still subtle enough for gloomy casual days in the city.

Cons:

The price.

More:

Those of you who have been following this blog for a while know that I‘m a big fan of Swedish Emma S (her cleansing oil is my favourite facial oil of all times). Hearing that Emma had released a new line I got curious – knowing that she made the best cleansing oil, I wanted to see what their body oil was like. I have an obsession for oils, that is no secret so I kind of consider myself being a expert. This body oil smells of vanilla, fig, coconut and (a tiny bit of) lemon. The fragrance is very subtle, but still lingers on my skin for a while. My skin doesn‘t get itchy after using this oil, something I have experienced in the past using other oil, and even though I‘ve been using this 125 ml bottle all summer I still have about 75% left. My skin also feels very hydrated after use. It dries in very fast which is a plus. Minus – the price.

The Best Oils For Face and Body List

Having a creepy and unhealthy (but ooh soo fabulous) and addictive relationship with oils I‘ve been going pretty wild these past years and tried to purchase everything for my body and face in oil form. Here is my top list:

  1. Best hair oil ever is this one – affordable and bottle last for a year at least, the only thing that helps when your hair is dying for a cut.
  2.  My favourite body oil smells of lavender, great before bed for a calming effect both for my soul and my legs (whom are scared they will never see the day light due to their chicken skin look).
  3. Cleansing your face with oil became a dream with this cleansing oil, it smells of childhood and the bottle last for many months plus I love to support a good entrepreneur.
  4. Despite its fishy smell I love love love what this oil does for my face during the winter.
  5. The best budget oil out there – almost free and makes you soft like a baby.
  6. This French shower oil is a true treat.

I would like to say I haven‘t meet an oil I didn‘t like but that would be a big fat lie – don‘t try this oil at home beauties.

Emma S Sensitive Day Cream Review

Pros:

Very nourishing and light.

Cons:

Isn‘t suitable for winter when my skin is super dry.

More:

I have previously written about cool Swedish Emma S Wiklund. This face cream is part of the line for sensitive skin, and I have been using it for a few months. It is very nourishing, feels very light on my skin, gets absorbed quickly and leaves my skin very soft – as promised. I think this is a great mid price range cream, and my sensitive skin has responded well to it (aka not broken out). What I don‘t like is, that it is only suitable for the “warm” times of the year, I first tried to use this cream back in november, when my skin was very dry and it was simply not giving me enough moisture – now that spring is here, my skin is in a better place and I replaced my oils with this face cream.

Review of Emma S Cleansing Oil

EMMAe_0065-CleansingOil-470x627

Pros:

Takes away make-up very well and can be used as a “semi-oil”.

Cons:

You get a lot of oil per pump.

More:

This is my first cleansing oil (this blog contains many firsts and I am very happy to have you with me on this adventure of beauty dear readers).

First and foremost I really love the smell of this oil, the smell reminds me of my grandmothers creams and sun oils, and therefore lazy summer days spent on the country side. Secondly it works great on my skin. Normally my skin likes to break out when I use oils, but I have not noticed anything like that, using this cleansing oil. Sometimes when I feel like I need a break from my evening routine I just use this cleanser, and no tonic afterwards and skip the creams, and the result is my skin still feels hydrated. It removes make-up very well (even when you accidentally smudge mascara on your forehead). The only minus is the price and that you get much more then needed per pump.

Review of Emma S Ageless Oxygen Mask

Pros:

My skin feels very fresh after using this mask.

Cons:

The price.

More:

I have previously written about my admiration for ubercool Emma S Wiklund, the supermodel who turned her knowledge from her modelling years into a great skincare brand. I am a big fan of the serum from the same line, and was very excited to try their oxygen mask. It promises to make your skin softer, smoother, and be a real energy booster. The mask is supposed to “give your skin oxygen” and thereby hydrate it. The consistency of the mask is a gel, which when applied turns into a foam and starts to bubble and tickle on my skin. I have never experienced anything like this: a mask that turns to life on my skin.

I feel really fresh after using it, and my skin is also visibly softer and smoother. The idea of an oxygen mask that bubbles and tickles my skin is new to me, and therefore really refreshing, I am a fan, and therefore would recommend it to you.
