My favorite sunscreen for the face

Absolutely love this sunscreen from La Roche-Posay! I heard the swedish influencer Margareta Grääs rave about it several times before I finally tried it, because I havn’t liked any of the sunscreens I’ve tried for my face before.

However, this summer is the summer of my new habits, and this is one of them. I’ve now used up an entire bottle of this product, and I have already bought a new one. It’ that good. I didn’t even think about trying another one, that’s how good it is!

My skin is normal, I have no direct issues with my skin, more than a pimple or two now and then, and sometimes I react around my eyes with eczema due to some products. The sunscreens I’ve tried before have all made me look and feel like a greasy mess in an hour.

However this product makes my skin feel hydrated without feeling greasy. I always put some kind of serum or moisturizer underneth the sunscreen though. It doesn’t give a white-cast and it goes into the skin so effortlessly. The skin keeps looking the same as when I put the product on, all day long. Can’t live without it!


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.


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!
