Beauty Essentials

Hello 2015! A New Year comes with some new resolutions. An important one for me is cleaning out my beauty closet (I have too much stuff!) so I can start fresh. The only things I will allow to be added this year are make-up and beauty products I actually use and have proven to do what they promise!


Curious yet? Here are some beauty products that have already conquered a spot in my closet!

Wrap temps futur


“Le wrap temps futur”, a perfecting lifting balm – Qiriness
I love to use this balm as a base for my make-up. I apply a thin layer all over my face after my morning beauty routine, before using my foundation (when I’m in a hurry, I mix a little in my foundation). It moisturizes, illuminates and smoothens my skin without making it oily. I like the fact it’s hypoallergenic, doesn’t contains parabens and has a lovely perfume. When using this balm as a mask, it will help smooth away signs of premature wrinkles and aging (luckily I don’t need that yet ;-)

Slant tweezer” – Tweezerman
Beauty favorite number 2: My tweezer – also known as my best friend every time I look in the mirror and see an unwanted hair peeking out my brows! In my opinion it’s worth investing in a tweezer that really gets all the unwanted hairs time after time. Many brow experts swear by a Tweezerman tweezer. It’s available in many happy colors and a mini-size. Tweezerman also offers a life long service to sharpen your tweezer for free; isn’t that just fabulous?!

“Thirstymud hydratating treatment” & “Powermud dualcleanse treatment” – Glamglow
“Supermud Clearing Treatment” was the first mask Glamglow launched a few years ago and it became an instant worldwide success. I have been a fan from the very beginning – mask-addict as I am. In the meanwhile, my Glamglow collection has expanded with its green and blue sisters:


A few times a week, I go to sleep with my ‘Thirstymud Hydra Mask’ on. I have an oily skin, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have to hydrate (hydration is important for all skin types!). This mask hydrates your skin deeply and has a delicious coconut perfume. After a night filled with dreams of tropical locations (a welcome side-effect), my skin looks more vivid and glowing!


Another Glamglow product I can no longer live without is the ‘Powermud dualcleanse mask’. It’s the first product I know that has a ‘mud-to-oil’-formula. Apply a layer of this mud on dry and clean skin and let it dry out for about 10 minutes. Next step is to add water and this is when the magic happens: the mud transforms into oil! Massage the oil with a circular movement all over your face. Wash it off and enjoy your intensely purified skin!
This mask will be in Belgian stores in februari 2015.
