Empties of June 2020

Hi loves

I actually forgot to post this one in the beginning of the month! I am so sorry! So here I am with a quick update on my empties of June! Hope this information is useful to you!

*** Hadalabo Gokuyun Toner: actually I was really happy with this toner! It is extremely hydrating and tends more to a serum than to a toner. Furthermore the packaging is huge (170ml), so it lasts you for ages! It’s a hydrating lotion and contains 3 different sizes of HA to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin! I would certainly rebuy this one!

*** Pixi Glow Tonic: Normally you know that I have this one always in a back-up. This maybe is our 5th bottle or so! Great gentle chemical exfoliator!

*** Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer: More than a moisturizer this also is an anti-aging cream due to the peptides in it. It is a medium light moisturizer which helps me reduce my fine lines while plumping my skin. It leaves my skin glowy! I feel really safe when using it and I also have a back-up ready! In winter time I prefer mixing in with a face oil for a little extra, allthough I do find it moisturizing enough! A pitty is that it is expensive retailing for 68$. I will continue using my back-ups, but when they are finished I have a lot of moisturizers ready to try out!

*** Dr Roebucks Ningalo serum: I actually bought this serum because I was so much in love with it’s colour! It has a liquid blue texture, which is as lightweight as water. The ingrediĆ«nt list is really short. It sinks in really fast and it’s a very good serum to add peptides to your routine in case you have none! Peptides are necessary in skincare when you’re +30, they are necessary ingrediĆ«nts for your skin to produce collagen which keeps your skin souple and plump! So when I use a moisturizer without peptides I use this serum in my routine or the buffet serum from The Ordinary. They both contain copper-peptides (responsible for the blue colour). When using I really notice a difference from when I don’t. Not at short notice, but when I started adding peptides to my routine my skin improved a lot after 7 to 8 weeks! I definately recommend this serum!

*** The Ordinary Niacinamide: My daughters are using this always to prevent them from having blackheads. It’s really efficient! When they run out and stopped using, they saw the blackheads forming after a few days! They now always have back-ups! The Ordinary now has a bottle of 60ml and they are really glad about it! Products from The Ordinary are always very economical!

** Australian Gold Mineral tinted sunscreen spf 50 : This SPF was my favourite last year! Unfortunately it is overdue, so I prefer not to risk my skin from getting burned! I would certainly recommend this sunscreen as it is mattifying, great make-up base, has a blurring effect due to the skintone, it’s not expensive, it’s mineral!

* Bioderma Sensibio AR Anti-Rougeurs moisturizer : This was during a long time the only skincare I used before informing me better. I cleansed, and I used this moisturizer under my make-up. No SPF, nothing else during my first 35 years! I guess it is good because I am really glad with my skin! I don’t have many deep lines or wrinkles and no severe skin conditions, and I never had plastic surgery. Now I use a 10step skincare method to keep it this way as long as possible, and this is not enough any more at the moment!

** Bioderma Sensibio AR BB cream : Actually more or less the same situation. This was my BB cream for years, I still like it! It’s such a gentle BB cream!

** Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer: My daughter Mirte advised me this concealer! I have used it during a year and it doesn’t set into wrinkles, it covers all imperfections and it’s not expensive! The only downsize to me is the applicator! I do find it highly unhygienic and I cannot dose it in minimal quantities like I’m used to with concealer! I will not rebuy it, but I do recommend it if you have no issues with sponge application!

*** Rituals Handbalm Ritual of Sakura: Great rich hand balm! It’s a rich cream, feeling really soft! It gives your hands a boost of hydration! I do use a towel to take it of my palms so that they don’t remain greasy! The perfume is so great and I liked it very much!
