Leonor Greyl Huile Secret de Beauté

En kroppsolja vid namn Huile Secret de Beauté från Leonor Greyl ramlade in hos mig under sensommaren förra året och då var jag inte så sugen på tropikerna längre, men nu! Den solkräms- och citruskantade blomsterdoften (hittar inga uppgifter på doftnoter men jag skulle gissa jasmin och neroli) bolmar ljuvt och spraymunstycket gör oljan lätt att portionera ut över kroppen eller i handflatan så den kan appliceras i hårtopparna.

Doften och oljans känsla på huden är nära besläktad med NUXE Huile Prodigieuse som jag också älskar, NUXE-oljan har något lite läppstiftigt över sig i doften vilket i denna olja är mer av en varm citrus. Älskar båda!

Finns att köpa över nätet på Net-a-Porter, och i fysisk butik ska den finnas på Sephora.

 

A body oil from Leonor Greyl called Huile Secret de Beauté found its way here at the end of last summer when I didn’t really want those tropicals anymore, but now! The suntan lotion and citrus tinged floral scent (don’t find any information on notes but I would guess jasmin and neroli) dances around and the spray nozzle makes the oil easy to apply on the skin or in the palm of your hand for applying in the ends of your hair.

The scent and feeling of the oil is closely related to NUXE Huile Prodigieuse which I also love, the NUXE oil has some kind of lipsticky character when this one has more of a warm citrus. I love both!

Available online at Net-a-Porter and as far as I know also in Sephora.

Shocking Coral

I’ve stayed away from lip glosses for a long time now (icy January hair stuck in lipgloss.. no thank youuuu!) so I’m really feeling it again! Matte natural skin with strategically placed highlights and a glossy bright lip in contrast with the plain skin. Yum!

And what was I wearing two years ago?

It’s always fun to look back at old makeup looks, so let’s see what I wore during the spring of 2012!

Judging by the pictures I was totally into smokey lower lashlines, glowing higlighters and fun lippies. I remember that I often wore my brows combed through with only a clear brow gel, when I didn’t I wore them very well defined. Love the brow shape I had back then! I miss my dark hair aswell.. Hmmm..

Review: Original Mineral (O&M) Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray

Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray från Original Mineral (eller O&M som de kallas) är en stylingprodukt för håret som med hjälp av Australiskt havssalt, Provitamin B5, Aloe Vera, Nattljusolja, grönt te, olivlövextrakt och den inhemska växten Lilli Pilli ska ge textur, stadga, UV-skydd och samtidigt ge glans utan att torka ut håret. Spraya den i håret och låt torka antingen på egen hand eller med värmeverktyg, fungerar både på handdukstorkat och torrt hår. Kostar 239 kr och går att köpa på utvalda salonger.

+ Ger stadga och definition likt en hårspray
+ Inte klistrig/stel i håret
+ Spraymunstycket skapar “moln” och inte blöta pölar
+ Får inte håret att kännas smutsigare under dagens gång
+ Klarar touch ups utan problem
+ Dryg
+ Ergonomisk och snygg flaska
+ Klassisk lyxig salongdoft

- Ganska dyr
- Innehåller ett silikon (om du ser det som ett problem)

Betyg: 5/5

Hair secret: Use nice hair products and EAT YOUR FRUIT!

 

Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray from Original Mineral (or O&M as they’re called) is a hair styling product that thanks to Australian sea salt, provitamin B5, Aloe Vera, Evening Primrose oil, green tea, olive leaf extract and a native plant called Lilli Pilli is supposed to give texture, hold, UV protection and at the same time give shine without drying out the hair.

+ Gives hold and definition like a hairspray
+ Not sticky or stiff in the hair
+ The spray nozzle creates a mist and not wet puddles
+ Doesn’t make the hair feel dirtier throughout the day
+ Touch ups work just fine
+ Lasts a long time
+ Ergonomic and nice looking bottle
+ Has a classic luxurious salon scent

+ A bit expensive
- Contains a silicon (if you dislike that fact)

Rating: 5/5
