Emma S Jasmine Facial Toner Review

7350053040526_1_default_default

Pros:

Keeps my skin hydrated whilst removing impurities.

Cons:

You need a lot per use.

More:

I‘m obsessed with facial toners – I still remember my first one – my skin never felt so clean. This toner smells lightly of jasmine and also contains cucumber (simplicity for the win). I really like how clean my skin feels after use (and I can see how much dirt and sun powder it gets off my face). Most importantly it doesn‘t dry out my skin, and leaves it feeling hydrated. A minus? You need pretty much per use, but the price is reasonable so it makes up for it.

L:A Bruket Koriander/Svartpeppar Conditioner Review

432647-b86113b4bbe64e0d8fac7217f2bd4d6c

Pros:

Packed with good ingredients – almond oil, vitamin B, cilantro and blackpepper.

Cons:

I still need to use extra products for my split ends after use.

More:

I have to admit that I was sceptical to this conditioner – as much, as I love L:A Bruket and their natural ingredients – my hair is so dry nothing but hardcore chemicals can help it. I know, that stating that one loves chemicals in anything is almost despicable since one is supposed to be into all things natural and eco. But honestly my frizz needs some things that nature alone can not offer. So I was pleasantly surprised by this conditioner when it actually took great care of my scalp and my hair.

My scalp is very dry and during the winter season I‘m like a snake shedding skin – after ignoring this fact for years I‘ve actually started investing in products which aim at giving the scalp some love (not only your hair). This conditioner is filled with goodness aiming at the scalp – almond oil, vitamin B and wheat protein. The cilantro and black pepper is is supposed to stimulate blood flow in the scalp. I love the unexpected combination of cilantro and black pepper – the smell is fresh and new to me. The conditioner gives my hair a lot of hydration, helps my split ends – which feel more soft and most importantly has taken great care of my scalp – my skin is less dry and itchy. That my split ends still need some leave-in conditioner and hair oil despite the use of this conditioner.

L:A Bruket Gurkmynta Cucumber Mint Hand Wash Review

81peqlK-YjL._SY450_

Pros:

Feels very luxurious and makes my hands very soft..

Cons:

The smell could have been a bit stronger..

More:

This hand soap was a big treat for me – I don‘t usually give myself soaps as expensive as this one – but then again – I don‘t want to be the richest on the cemetery (and after getting this one and two Diptique candles I certainly won‘t be).

This soap smells deliciously fresh, the bottle lasts for about 2 months (450 ml) and makes my hands very soft after use. I also like that you can buy a re-fill – which is both sustainable and cheaper alternative. What is the minus of the soap? I wish the smell of mint was a bit stronger.

ACO Body Lotion Moist Review

aco_bodylotionmoist_parf_400ml

Pros:

You get a lot for your money.

 

Cons:

The smell is very neutral, I would have preferred a stronger smell for a feel of luxury – but depends on what you are locking for.

More:

I love that this body lotion comes in a huge package (400 ml to cover my voluptuous body) and that it comes as a pump bottle – making it very easy to use – and hygienic. It gets absorbed instantly, gives good hydration (not the best I tried but decent). The smell is pretty ok too, very very discreet. So verdict – this is a very decent and budget friendly body lotion where you get a good effect and amount for the money.

Review of the Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Serum

Pros:

I love the idea behind the brand, being nice to the nature and your skin at the same time is a treat.

Cons:

This is a pricy serum, especially if you buy it outside of the nordic countries.

More:

My nordic heart beast with pride as I write this. Swedish Estelle & Thild has been around for 8 years, but they are a new discovery to me. All the cremes and wonders from this brand are free from toxic residues and eco-friendly, and the woman behind it (the gorgeous Pernilla Rönnberg) started it bearing her own daughters and the world they would grow up in, in mind. I’m always happy discovering cool strong women making their way in the beauty business with their own independent ideas taken to a new level, not being a part of the big brands with the long histories and big budgets.

Now about the serum, it contains many yummy ingredients such as figs, blueberries, cranberries and jojoba oil. It promises to make your skin, firmer, more hydrated. My last serum was amazing so therefore I had great expectations, and I was very satisfied. You need a very small amount per application, it smells very fresh of rose, and I could already see a difference on my skin after a few weeks. My skin feels more luminous and very hydrated, even skipping my religious ritual of using face masks. I think after starting to use serums there is no way of going back, it just adds that extra over the top hydration we all are chasing with oils and masks. I will be honest this is a luxury brand, and therefore not cheap, but it is a nice alternative to all the other expensive brands out there.
