Coconuts are definitely a big hit. During the last years the exotic coconut experienced an image change and nowadays you can buy the superfood almost everywhere, as well as the extolled coconut oil. The cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil is in fact one of the richest sources of saturated fats and a real “problem” solver for everyone. I have a huge container stored in my kitchen and bathroom, it is incredibly versatile to use and provides so many benefits. Coconut Oil As A Moisturizer For Skin…

I don’t know about you, but my skin is always pretty much out of control after traveling. Air condition and temperature difference are kind of tough. Due to my horrible skin disorders at the moment I try to keep my skincare routine simple and try to use only the minimum of products. The problem is that anti-acne products are effective but they are not really moisturising. I checked my skincare drawer and stumbled across the Lancôme Hydra Zen Masque that I have used and loved…

If you’d ask me what step of my skincare routine is the one that’s most important to me I’d say it’s cleansing. Without thinking.

Only one molecule alone is able to hold up a 1000-fold of its own weight in water and that is the reason why HA is a major skin plumper. As we age, starting in our mid-twenties, the natural production of HA in ours bodies decreases. The NIOD…

This post is for all the dry-skinned girls out there. My skin is far away from being dry now but before I slipped into my hormonal acne issues I used to have quite dry skin. That explains why I still have lots and lots of products for that concern in my skincare drawer. Uhh, I have to tell you that I really miss using a creamy moisturizer, I miss the comforting and pampering feeling a heavy cream leaves on the skin 🙂 Thinking back I…

I’m sure a bad buy doesn’t only happen to me. The internet is packed with reviews and advices, sometimes we are just overflowed by information. Of course I am well aware of the fact that products which work for others might be a total disaster for me, my needs or skin condition and this also applies vice versa. I still wanted to write this post down and tell you about my disappointing experience with some previous purchases. Clarins UV Plus SPF50 I am really sorry to…
