Monthly Favourites / April 2017

Happy May everyone!

This is my first monthly favourites on my blog, so excited.

I admit that I’m a big fan of monthly favourites blog posts because they are interesting due to their personal fact. It’s nice to see what different people have been loving the past month. Therefore I would like to share you mine.

Konjac Sponge Aloe Vera

I have been washing my face once a day (in the evening) with this Aloe Vera sponge. My skin is also quite sensitive, acneic and dries out easily. The aloe vera helps to soothe, moisturize, even out the skin tone and make dull skin more vibrant. The sponge really helps to properly cleanse my pores.

I let the konjac sponge soak in warm water for a few minutes while removing my makeup. After that I dampen my face, apply a cleanser on the wet sponge and start cleansing my face with it. When done, I rinse my face and squeeze the excess water out of the sponge and let it dry hanging from its string. Lastly I continue with my regular evening skincare routine.

MADARA Detox Ultra Purifying Mask

This, my new favourite mask! My forehead is like one of my problem areas, always clogged pores no matter what. But this is a true detox for your face, that’s why it’s called Detox Mask. It has honestly cleared most of my acne. I need to repurchase this in normal size because the mini version is almost used up.

You only need a thin layer of this and have to let it do its thing for 5-10 minutes. I have used this twice a week. It is suitable for oily and combination skin, skin with large pores, inflamed skin and acne skin.

This is a strong mask and does let your skin a bit red after use (this also reads on the product packaging). So I recommend to use this in the evening. Just remember to moisturize well afterwards and the redness will be all gone by the morning. If you have sensitive skin (or any type) I suggest to test any kind of mask in a small area first for possible irritation.

Lavera Re-Energizing Sleeping Cream

This has made my skin go from rough to smooth. It has also made my skin brighter, more moisturized and the redness has calmed down to a more even complexion. I have made a review of this and written more precisely of its benefits for my skin.

Flow Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Powder, Ivory

I have been applying this mineral powder when I go out. It’s so easy to apply and build up. It makes my skin look so dewy and bright. I like that it’s talc free and doesn’t have any unnecessary ingredients. It also lets acne skin breathe because it doesn’t clog pores. This mineral powder comes in cool and warm tone shades, so it’s easy to find the best one suited for your skin tone.

Clipper Tea, Organic Orange & Coconut Infusion

This smells like a true paradise to me and the scent is so good. It tastes fruity and sweet. I drink this in the morning for a vibrant start for the day. The ingredients are: Honeybush, orange peel, pineapple, coconut.

Taboo TV series

The events are happening during the War of 1812. James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy) returns to London after hearing his father has passed. His intentions are to rebuild his late father’s shipping empire. The government and other competitor are trying to stop Delaney’s plans at any cost.

I absolutely love this series, hooked. I have been binge watching this with my boyfriend. We watched the hole season in three days or so. Oops!

The show is mysterious, dark and brutal, and it’s all well executed. It has awesome actors and the characters are even better.

And the best part… At the end of every episode you just can’t keep of thinking: “What will happen next? I need to know”.

Style inspiration, Allana Davison

Allana Davison is a youtuber who does beauty, makeup, fashion and lifestyle related videos and blog. She is so cool and I absolutely love her style. Her fashion hauls are the best, she is very good at combining clothes. I can describe her style as elegant, chic and edgy. I have had such an inspiration to change my style thanks to Allana.
