Beauty is all around us

St Tropez Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water Face Serum

The sun is finally coming out here in Sweden, and I looove it!!! ☀️

All summer long I’m in the sun as much as I possibly can. I tan pretty easy, so a few years ago I did not use SPF that much, but now I do, atleast in spring and summer. My goal is to to it all year around though.

Enough rambling 😅 Nowadays, I use SPF 30 or most often SPF 50 on my face, and therefore I don’t get a tan there. So I use self tanners on my face to match my body 😊

This is by far my favorite one out of the ones I’ve tried so far. I got a sample last year, and I’ve used the product ever since, exept for trying another one here and there.

It has an amazing serum consictancy and it goes into the skin so fast. It smells so nice when you put it on the face, no self tanner smell at all, but that comes later on. I can smell it a few hours after butting it on and even the day after if i wear a mask (as I do at work). That is the ONLY downside to this product. It gives perfect colour to my light skintone and if I want it deeper, I just put on a new layer two days in a row.

The price is ok, but it’s not cheap, it’s around 325 SEK, around 38$ here in Sweden. But one bottle lasts a long time for me since I don’t use it every day.


Makeup Mekka Falsies; Romantic

Ok, how do I start this? Well, I don’t like them 🤷‍♀️ The lashband shows however I do, because it’s kind of white to beguin with and nothing really sticks to it because of the material. Especially in the inner corner is a big problem, bescause it’s hard to get that part not to be seen. The lashes look good and natural though, long and fluffy like real lashes.

You see the band, don’t you?
Beautiful lashes that looks natural.

Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum

Got this sent to me as PR. It’s a serum that targets hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. It’s formulated with an advanced form of tranexamic acid to visibly improve the appearance of dark spots, acne scars, melasma, and sun damage.

I get alot of hyperpigmentation on my upper lip, after my pregnancies. I also have some dark spots in the rest of my face, probably from sun damage, but I accualy like those 😊 So I will use this product on my upper lip, and see how well it works. I started using it a couple of days ago, and I THINK that I already see result, but can that really be true? So soon?

FLAER Brushes

Got these brushes and sponges sent to me as PR around Christmas, so I’ve been using them for a while now. I see my self reaching for the brushes over my other brushes accually, and that tells me something… They are sooo soft and they pick up product so good! The rounded blending brush really blend the shadows so effortlessly, and the detailed one is great to pack on eyeshadow on the lid and blend into the crease.

The sponges are very good as well, I always end up with a base that I like when I use them. They are very soft and squishy, just the way I like my sponges to be.


304 Detailed Blending Brush (99 SEK~11 USD)

302 Rounded Blending Brush (99 SEK~11 USD)

504 Velvet Blending Sponge (129 SEK~15 USD)

501 Soft Blending Sponge (129 SEK~15 USD)

The brushes from FLAER are vegan and made by recycled material. I think the pricepoint of their brushes are great for the quality you get.


NYX Glitter Primer

This is my favorite glitter primer. I’ve tried a few from different brands, like Makeupstore, Lime Crime and Lit Cosmetics, but this one is by far the best I’ve tried. It doesn’t destroy the makeup underneath it, as I find some other primers doing and it’s therefore very easy to work with. It also makes the glitter stick to the primer perfectly and it doesn’t crease. The price is great, compared to other brands as well.

If you’re thinking of getting one glitter primer, this is the one!

Wake Up Eye Gel by Good Molecules

Got this eye gel sent to me as PR from Good Molecules. I’ve tried it out a few times and I really like it so far.

The special thing with this eye gel is that it contains yerba mate, that is a natural source of rich antioxidants and polyphenols, known to stimulate body and mind.

Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? A rewiew will be up in a few weeks 😘

Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 2

This palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills is a palette full of 25 pigments. It’s cruelty-free and vegan. It’s not a new palette, it released about a year ago, so I’ve had plenty of time trying this out 😊

All shades swatched

Pigments can be a bit tricky to work with, because they have a bit different texture than eyeshadows. They can be harder to blend for example. I’m very used to colorful pigments and eyeshadows, as I often do colorful looks.

With that being said I think this palette is really easy to work with. Especially the matte pink, the greens and the blues are 👌. The mattes are very pigmented and has great opacity, the shimmers are more sheer. Tbh I like other shimmers in my collection better, so I rarely use the ones in this palette.

Overall it’s a good palette, and the color E3 is one of my favorites in my collection. The price, around 80 dollars here in Sweden, is a bit too much I think.


Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

This is a cleansing water, formulated with zinc and aloe vera. It efficiently removes makeup from the face and eyes while purifying the skin. It’s suitable for normal, dry, combination, and oily skin. The product is vegan.

I’ve used it a few times now, and my first impression is that I really like it! The scent is fresh and my skin feels clean after it.

I use it after cleaning my face with a foaming cleanser, as if it was a toner.

So far so good 😊

Soap & Glory Flake Away Bodyscrub

This product claims to effectively and effortlessly exfoliate, help brighten and even the skin tone (after just one use). Leaving the skin feeling smoothed, polished, conditioned and glowing. It’s also supposed to help prevent in-growing hairs and help smoothing bumps on the skin. It’s suitable for all skin types and dermatologically tested.

Here is my thoughts of this product. It has a nice smell, not my favorite, I like more fruity, fresh, citrusy kind of scents, and this is more floral scented imo. The smell lingers a little bit, and I like that. It has some oils in it, and that makes the skin feel so soft after using it. It also has the perfect amount of scrubbing salts and sugar in it, so it gives a perfect peeling effect, it removes of all my dry skin. The price is amazing too! It costs around 150 SEK which is about 15 $.

I will definitely purchase this one again, and again… And again 😊 Also, I want to try out more of Soap & Glory Scrubs to see if I find a scent that I like more.
