Skönhet

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

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

Rating: 5/5

Beach Sunset is the perfect creamy peach for spring and summer. Simple as that. I love this polish from the KICKS spring collection and I will wear it loads! Three quick drying coats was needed for full opacity.

Paintbox Soapworks Lavender Truffle Solid Scent Balm

Min favoritdoft på sistone är från Paintbox Soapworks på Etsy, de gör bland annat parfymer i små burkar, företaget känns lite LUSH! I övrigt kan du shoppa krämer, tvålar, skrubbar och annat kul, ofta återfinner du en doft i alla produktkategorier så hittar du en doft du gillar kan du alltid bygga ihop en hel serie.

Doften jag kört fast på är Lavender Truffle, en mjuk och enkel liten skapelse som jag bär dag ut och dag in. Smörig 50-60procentig choklad (ni vet, mörk karaktär men egentligen bara godis) pudrad med vaniljsocker och en svepning av sval lavendel. That’s it. Älskar perfektionen i denna simpla lilla komposition, den är behagligt söt men ändå lite seriös, och lämnar kvar en disig chokladkantad vaniljdoft (Kinderägg!) på hud och kläder tills, ja.. allt skuras rent! 60 kronor väl spenderade.

 

My favourite scent lately is from Paintbox Soapworks on Etsy, amongst other things they make perfume balms in little jars, the brand concelt feels a little like LUSH! Apart from perfumes you can buy creams, soaps, scrubs and other fun stuff, and most scents can be found throughout all of the product categories so if you find a scent you like you can get yourself the full line.

The scent that I’m loving is Lavender Truffle, a soft and simple little creation that I’m wearing day in and day out. Buttery 50-60 percent chocolate (you know, dark character but still just candy) sprinkled with vanilla sugar and a cool breeze of lavender. That’s it. I love the perfection of this simple little composition, it’s comfortably sweet but still a bit serious, and it leaves a haze of chocolate tinged vanilla (Kinder egg!) on skin and clothes until, well.. you scrub it off! $9 well spent.
