My Bathroom Essentials

My Bathroom Essentials

Today I want to share my bathroom essentials with you. I mentioned before that I am no beauty expert, but every girl has her favourite products and brands. And after years of a strict skincare regime, I know what works best for me. I am a big fan of natural skincare, which means I try to use products that are free from preservatives and additives as much as I can. Especially on my face I try to follow the rule, "If you can’t eat it, don’t put on your face!". Which means I sometimes apply the DYI method and end up melting and whipping body lotions and face masks in the evening when everyone else is asleep. Here is my recipe for a great body moisturizer. It is very rich, but great after a day on the beach as a after-sun moisturizer and in winter, you can use it on a daily basis to keep the moisture locked in: Slowly melt unrefined Shea Butter, pure Coconut Oil, Mango Butter, a little bit of Argan, Olive or Vitamin E oil with a few drops of your  favourite essential oils and let it cool down. Then use a hand-mixer and whip it until it turns into a soft buttery texture. Absolutely amazing! Please try it and let me know what you think. But I also love nice looking luxury products int the bathroom. Sometimes great packaging speaks for itself. Have a look at some of my favourites below.

The Green & Spring 'Revitalising' is my all time favourite scented candle!

The Antonia Burrell skincare range is pricey, but worth every penny!

Do you love Tom Ford as much as I do? The colours in the body scrub are amazing!

I love the limited edition of L'Oreal lipstick and nail-polish with Jewel by Lisa's designs

I don't know what I would do without my Moroccan Oil?

Le Teint Touche Eclat by YSL is the best foundation ever! I love tat you don't look 'made-up' as this gives you a natural glow!

You have to get used to the salty taste of this Weleda toothpaste, but it is great! An all natural!

Lush's Gorgeous moisturizer is one of my favourite products ever. This my the secret to young looking skin!

Wonderful scent and not too lathering! I love Ren's Neroli and Grapefruit body-wash.
