January Beauty Favourites

Jeg har alltid elsket å finne nye skjønnetsprodukter i starten av nyåret. Når jeg er på utkikk etter skjønnhetsprodukter ser jeg alltid etter noe for ansiktet. Jeg har lenge hatt problemer med fet hud i t-sonen så jeg er alltid på jakt etter noe i den kategorien. En av mine favorittprodukter denne måneden er nemlig noe som hjelper på fet hud – Foreo Luna 2 er en batteridrevet rengjøringsbørste til ansiktet. Foreo Luna kommer i forskjellige farger i forhold til hvilket behov du har. Jeg valgte Foreo Luna 2 i turkis som da skal hjelpe mot fet hud. Det finnes også en mindre størrelse som har et batterilevetid på 100 timer, i mens den større versjonen er oppladbar. Foreo Luna 2 brukes ved å føre børsten rundt i ansiktet. Jeg bruker ca 5 minutter, også skal den skylles. Etter å ha brukt børsten i ansiktet skal porene dine være åpne og man kan da bruke ansiktsvasken man normalt pleier å bruke.

Den norske vinteren gjør at det er viktig å pleie huden. Jeg har nylig begynt å bruke en Overnight Repair Mask og en Treatment Enzyme Peel fra Emma S. Begge produkter bruker jeg to ganger i uken og huden føles utrolig fresh etter. Emma S har lenge vært en favoritt hos meg fordi produktene er utrolig skånsomme og føles rene.

Et annet skjønnhetsprodukt som har blitt et favoritt for håret er EMI Shape Me 48h fra Wella. Dette er en hårgel som aktiveres ved varme. Jeg syntes dette produktet er helt fantastisk og jeg bruker det alltid etter at jeg har krøllet håret. Produktet kan brukes på hvilken som helst hårstil.

//I always stock up on new beauty products in early in January. When I’m looking for new beauty products I always look for something new for my face. I’ve always had problems with oily skin, so I’m always looking for something new in that category. One of my favourite products this month is actually something that helps prevent oily skin – Foreo Luna 2 is a battery-powered facial cleansing brush and comes in different colours depending on your particular need.  I chose Foreo Luna 2 in turquoise as it should help prevent oily skin. There is also a smaller size which has a battery life of 100 hours, while the larger version is rechargeable. Foreo Luna 2 is used by moving the brush around the face. I spend about 5 minutes using it before I rinse it with water. The brush opens your pores, and you can then use the face wash you normally tend to use. With open pores the face wash will have a better effect. 

The Norwegian winter makes it important to care of the skin. I recently started using an Overnight Repair Mask and Treatment Enzyme Peel from Emma S. Both products are used twice a week and makes your skin feel amazingly fresh after. Emma S has long been a favourite of mine because the products are incredibly gentle and feels clean.

Another beauty product that has become a favorite for hair is EMI Shape Me 48h from Wella. This is a hair gel, activated by heat. This product is absolutely fantastic and I always use it after I’ve curled my hair. The gel also has an amazing smell, and you can use it for whatever hairstyle you want.

Winter Skin Care Tips

Struggling with dry hair, skin and lips in the wintertime? Well, you’re not the only one. Fortunately, there are many products on the market that can save us with dry skin. I have tested four products which are essential for winter.

The first product is from REN Skincare and is a Moroccan Dry Oil. This product can be used on your skin as well as your hair and has a wonderful scent of roses. I applied this product on my hair after using my curling iron three days in a row and got back the normal moisture in my hair. This product also leaves hair shiny and silky and is one of the better drying oils I’ve tried.


The second product is from Elizabeth Arden and is an Adcanced Lip Fix Crem which is perfect for dry winter lips. This product takes care of cracked lines on the lip and also takes care of the deeper lines and treats the whole lip. The product is also supplied much antioxidants to preserve moisture of your lips. You can also apply this product before you apply your lipstick. Just make sure that the Lip Fix Cream is completely dry before you apply the lipstick.

The third product is also from Elizabeth Arden and is the world renowned Eight Hour Lip Cream. This is a lip balm, but can also be used on dry hands, which is brilliant. This product is one of my all-time favourites and is constantly with me in my bag.

The fourth and final product is an Argan Oil from Björn Axén with added oils from macadamia nuts and a plant called buckthorn. The Moroccan Argan oil is rich with antioxidants which is good for your hair. This product is also good for you with dry hair and especially for you with dry ends.

Elizabeth Arden Liquid Series

This post contains sponsored products

Elizabeth Arden’s Liquid Lipsticks are creamy and gives immaculate coverage. The lipstick is highly pigmented and contains emollient ester and glycerin, which soften the lips and adds to comfortable wear.
The lipsticks comes in an innovative pen-style that you click when you apply the lipstick.

As it is a liquid lipstick it dries, but it doesn’t leave your lips feeling dry. Because of the emollient ester your lips feel soft while wearing the lipstick, and also after you’ve removed the lipstick. There are several liquid lipsticks that dries your lips out completely and makes your lips dry for several days after, but the Liquid Lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden doesn’t.

The series also comes in several beautiful colours. I’ve tried Seductive Magenta, Pink Lover and Fiery Red. By the way, these are perfect to give your sister, girlfriend or mother for Christmas.

These Red Lips

If there’s something I never can get enough of, it’s red lipstick. Red lipstick is essential in your make up bag, and it’s just like the the little black dress; you just can’t get enough of them in your closet, or in your make up bag in this case. A little bit of red lipstick can really make your face and even your outfit pop! I’ve picked out three of my favourite red lipsticks from different brands!

1. SIREN IN SCARLET

Siren in Scarlet is a classic red lipstick from Maybelline. This red lipstick is matte and reminds me of MAC’s Ruby Woo, but less dry. This is the kind of red lipstick that I would choose for a night out with the girls, or for a night out with my boyfriend. The colour makes your face pop!
BUY ME

2. CHILI

This lipstick is from MAC, and is also matte. This red lipstick has a hint of orange in it and is one of my favourites. This is the kind of red lipstick that I would choose for work or for coffee with friends as it is a little bit toned down. This lipstick goes great with a white shirt and jeans.

3. CLASSIC RED

This Classic Red is an Elizabeth Mott liquid lipstick. The lipstick feels light on the lips and it doesn’t get sticky and lumpy as some of the other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried. This is also a lipstick that I would choose for a night out. This red colour isn’t as strong as MAC’s Ruby Woo or Russian Red, but it really does the trick.

My Morning Routine

I thought I share my morning routine with you, as I tend to get questions about what I use on my skin, and how I keep it acne-free. Lately I’ve been using different products from La Prairie, including a foam cleanse, toner and facial cream which I think works miracles on my face. I’ve never had problems with acne, but I’ve always had a problem with oily skin – especially in the T-zone area. After I started using these products I feel that my T-zone area is getting better.

Before I apply the foam cleanse I clean my face with facial wipes. I use Simple Facial wipes. I then apply the foam cleanse. After washing my face with the foam cleanse I let my face rest for two minutes before applying the toner. I feel like the toner is the factor that does the most for my T-zone.


After applying the toner I apply a facial cream. I only use a really small amount as I don’t want my face to feel or look greasy. I do this routine only in the morning as I have another routine at night. The facial cream from La Prairie is also an anti stress cream which I can’t get enough of!

The products that I’m using from La Praire are; La Prairie Foam Cleanser – Nettoyant Mousse, La Prairie Lotion Cellulaire Vivifiante and La Prairie Creme Anti Age Destressante. All my products are from La Praire Steen & Strøm Oslo.


Christmas Press View

 I attended a CHRISTMAS Press View hosted by Polhem PR where the main theme was Christmas present. You may think it’s early to think about Christmas present, and it probably is, but it’s a good idea to have a plan, because everyone knows how Christmas time is. You barely have time to do any Christmas shopping because there is so much to do. The presentation was beautiful and there were a lot of good Christmas present ideas.
