Welcome back to another beauty empties post! I was cleaning up my beauty room and suddenly found a whole bag of empties I had totally forgotten about (bad blogger!) and since I have a few things to say about these products, here we are. As usual there’s more skincare than makeup. Do any of you finish more makeup than skincare? I’m curious.
Oily skin and impurities have always been my main concern when I though of skincare, but being on the verge of turning 30 made me realize I needed to start thinking about ageing as well. Coming Fall, I decided to start a renewing and anti-ageing skincare regimen (read more here) focused on the long term benefits of ingredients like Retinol. One of the key products of my new skincare routine is the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum*, which I was kindly sent to try. I have been using this serum religiously for a month now and I think I have a few things to say about it.
The seasons they are a’changing and it is time to switch up my skincare. So here comes this Fall Skincare Edit with the products that are going to be my routine in the next colder months. Out goes the extra SPF, in come the chemical exfoliators.
An American Tail was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and I kept singing “There are no cats in America” for a few months after I saw it. Just love it! The song is a promise that all your troubles will be solved and life will be perfect in America! This is the spirit with which I am moving to the US and running a giveaway!
As I’ve mentioned a few times in the past few months, my husband was offered a position in the US and we are leaving The Netherlands is just a couple of weeks. I am so excited and imagine myself spending days in Sephora and Ulta and all the drugstores swimming among all the makeup that I haven’t been able to try on this side of the pond. Not to mention the ColourPop, Limecrime and Makeup Geek orders I’ll be placing. *Sigh*
