Dermalogica facial

Dermalogica-Ultra-Calming

Update: Mon 7/1 I'm feeling alive again ;) Cleansers, mask, massage and hydrating creams to wrap it up! So worth it.

On Thursday I'm gonna spend 1½ hour being pampered at the beauty salon, desperately need to hydrate my skin after the holiday craze, wine and lack of sleep is so bad for the skin and I haven't exactly bothered lately.

This treatment is basically a normal hydrating facial using Dermalogica products and it will be soo nice. Will tell you about it later :)

L’Oreal Youth Code serum

L'Oreal Youth Code serum has become my new favourite in the serum jungle after using / trying both The Body Shop Drops of youth and Vichy Aqualia Thermal serum lately. Although many products make you think Aaah this is the one in the beginning, this might actually be one which I at least keep using.  It looks and feels like silk on your skin and has a beautiful fresh smell. I'm also trying the Youth code daycream.

 

Björk & Berries

Next month when we're in Sweden for the annual holiday we're gonna go for a little road trip me and J, it's gonna be so much fun showing him where I grew up, where I went to school, spent time with friends etc. I haven't actually been back to that town for many many years since when we go for the holidays we spend most of the time in the countryside or at J's parents place. Actually where I grew up is also the birth place of the heavenly scented skin care brand Björk & Berries (iihh) so good for me. Bad for the wallet.

L’Occitane shower oil vs Nivea shower oil

Almond Shower Oil

If you try shower oils, which are actually great in winter when your body is more prone to dryness, you might think they share some kind of similarity when it comes to feel and fragrance. I tried these two lately. L'occitane shower oil made my skin super smooth and soft, it has a luxury almond scent and it transforms into a light foam while the Nivea has a bitter smell and felt mostly sticky.

I would not say Nivea was the less liked one because it comes at a cheaper price, Nivea has plenty of good products but in this case L'occitane won (at least in my opinion) so best thing is not always to look at the price tag instead work your way through the massive amount of products and see what you like. I usually prefer brands which focus on one kind of range. I don't see why expensive brands like Dior would be better at skin care compared to a more affordable brand such as Decleor which focus on skincare only. My point is that I trust 'pure' brands mostly. If Decleor starts making bags etc I would start to wonder a bit. With this said I've tried several Dior skin care products and found them good, however not as satisfying as the price suggests.

What do you think?
