Skincare: Long Haul Flights

Continuing my travel posts here is my skincare routine for when I’m traveling.

skincare

First of all I need a hand cream because I feel like my hands are the first thing to get dry considering I’m carrying around bags and suitcases so I like to always have a hand cream with me. Not really skincare well I guess it is, deodorant. I think it’s really important for when you just feel a bit sweaty which is totally normal (a day at the airport or on a plane can be quite stressful). Other than that I obviously have my face serum and moisturizer which I apply before take off and landing. For my lips I’m using a beeswax balm which nurishes them beautifully. For the rest of my body I use a lotion that is also very moisturizing so if I get dry skin or itchy skin I just apply it to those spots. That’s it for my skincare routine. I don’t usually wear makeup when traveling so it’s not that much but I hope you guys still found it interesting.

Products:
Soap and Glory – Hand Food
Rexona Biorythm Deodorant
IndeedLabs – Hydraluron
La Roche Posay – Effaclar Duo
Lush – Dream Cream
Lipbalm – Handmade

TAG: Would You Rather

Today something a bit different. I wanted to do a Tag which is usually a YouTube thing to do but I love them and I’m sure they are not just fun to watch but also to read ;).

QUESTIONS:
1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I’d rather lose all my palettes and eyeshadows  because mascara and lipsticks are just much more important to me.

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
I’d rather never be able to cut them again because I could always braid it or make it in a bun even if it’s long but chopping it all NO WAY.

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Coral cheek because it just suits my skintone better :).

4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Definitely clothes because I wouldn’t know what makeup to buy for 1000$ dollars and having too many makeup items makes you not even use them.

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Probably lipstick as an eyeliner a pop of colour could maybe even look good in spring/summer but a black or brown lip probably not.

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Sephora because I like to have different brands and not just one.

7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
One eyeshadow color. I could probably live with a natural brown eyeshadow because I don’t really use anything else on my eyelids anyways.

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Summer clothes in winter because I could always wear a summer dress with tights and a scarf but sweating in the sun with a jumper on no thanks.

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Dark nails, I love dark red or black nail polish on me it just compliments my skin tone and goes with everything.

10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
I would rather give up my favourite eye product because I need lip balm and I just wouldn’t know what to do without it.

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Ponytail because I love how the hair swings from one side to the other when walking (… weiiiiird, sorry)

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
I don’t use lipgloss as much so I’d rather never be able to use lipgloss anymore.

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
OMG this is such a hard question… but I would probably go for the sharpie and use a brown one so it doesn’t look super crazy.

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
I’d rather live without makeup because I’m just obsessed with nail polish :).

If you’ve come that far congratulations and I hope that even though this post is a bit different you still like it.

Lots of love xx

Lush Soak and Float Solid Shampoo Bar Review

Today I want to review a product for you that I just recently bought. After trying it out twice I might not be able to tell you a whole lot about it but I can at least share my  thoughts and first impressions with you.

lushshampoobar

A while ago I noticed that my scalp was getting really dry giving me a bit of an uncomfortale feeling. I don’t know if the cause for it was the shampoo I used before or hair products I started using lately, I just knew that I had to do something about it. Always being a fan of Lush products I thought I could try one of there solid shampoo bars. The lady in the store was as always super helpful and found the perfect shampoo for my hair type. Only after using it once the dry skin on my scalp was gone and my hair was shiny and soft. The only negative point about this shampoo is the scent, it smells very very smoky and no matter in what room you’ll store it the whole air will be filled with this “bacon” smell. Don’t worry though it doesn’t leave your hair smelling like that at all it’s just very intense while you’re using it. Overall it’s a great product and it’s supposed to last up to 80 washes if you keep it in a dry place and if you drain it well.

My Nail Care Routine

My Nail Care Routine might not be the most interesting one but I still thought I’d like to share it with you guys.

My Nail Care Routine

First I remove any nailpolish or residue I might have on my nails with nailpolish remover.

Filing my nails is up next and I use a “Revlon Emery Board” because it just works best for me and I’ve noticed that it doesn’t damage my nail as much as other files I’ve tried (I only use nail scissors if it’s really necessary and if I’m in a hurry).

Using my “Essence – Cuticle Remover Gel” I push back my cuticles (the gel softens the skin which makes it easier to push them back :D).

I then wash my hands with soap and dry them thoroughly. Using a tissue or cotton pad I go over my nails and cuticles again to make sure I got rid of all oils and the water.

Applying one thin coat of the “Essence – Studio Nails 24/7 nail base” evens out the ridgeds on my nails and makes the nailpolish last longer (usually my nails chip after 1-2 days with this on the nailpolish lasts 2-3 days longer).

After letting my base coat dry for 10 min I apply 1-2 coats of any nailpolish and let each coat dry for 10 minutes at least.

I don’t use a topcoat because I just didn’t find one I like yet so if you guys have any recommendations comment down below :). So the last step would be using my super rich “Lush – Dream Cream” which makes my hands really soft and nurishes my skin perfectly leaving me with beautifully manicured hands :D.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post if you did please leave a comment or like this post.

Top 5 Lipstick Picks for Spring 2014

After showing you guys my Top 5 Nail Polish Picks for Spring 2014 I decided I also want show you my favorite lip products for this season.

Benefit Cha Cha Tint
I love using this product on my cheeks and lips during spring and summer. Because it is a lip/cheek stain it’ll stay on for a long time which is perfect for me because I don’t like to touch up my makeup during the day.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter- 035 Candy Apple
Can’t tell you enough how amazing the Revlon Lip Butters are but you probably already know. This colour is absolutely gorgeous for people with pale but also tanned skin. You can wear it sheer or build up the colour with a few more coats. Perfect for everyday :).

NYX Buttergloss – BLG06 Peach Cobbler
The scent of this gloss is just divine and eventhough I’m not a lipgloss person I do really like this one. The colour payoff of this lipgloss is amazing and I’ll defintely try out some other colours.

Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick – Red Sunrise
This bright lipstick is super easy to apply and feels like a lipbalm on the lips. The colour payoff is incredible and if you like bright rasperry tones you should check that one out.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss – 107
This lipstick might seem a bit dark for spring but I like to wear it with hardly any eye make up and a white dress. I think that it just looks fabulous and would be just right for a party or a night out in town.
