Balm Balm Little Miracle Rosehip Serum

Balm Balm Little Miracle rosehip serum

I adore organic beauty products and recently I have been testing out several new brands to find skincare that is both green and affordable. While browsing for a new face oil, I came across the Little Miracle Rosehip Serum by Balm Balm. I was rather curious about the brand as I have never tried anything by Balm Balm before and at a mere £14.50 (about $18 / €16) a bottle it certainly met the affordability criterium. So, is this a little miracle?

NOTW: Meet me at the chimney

This week I am rocking a color from the Essence christmas polish collection, as you might have been able to tell from its name: meet me at the chimney. Now, I have no idea how this semi-matte pistachio polish fits with a christmas theme, but it hasn’t stopped me from loving the color.

The semi-matte effect is rather lovely and actually stays put relatively well on my weak nails: the first small chips appeared towards the end of the second day. Doesn’t sound very long lasting, but actually pretty decent from budget brand Essence as (semi)matte polishes are notoriously tricky. Meet me at the chimney is one of my surprise summer favorites.

Deze week draag ik een kleurtje uit de Essence Kerst nagellak collectie, zoals je misschien al had geraden na de naam: meet me at the chimney. Ik heb geen idee hoe deze semi-matte pistache nagellak bij een kerst thema past, maar ik hou van deze kleur.

Het semi-matte effect is heel leuk en blijft verbazingwekkend lang zitten op mijn zwakke nagels: de eerste kleine chips waren pas te zien aan het einde van dag twee. Dat klinkt misschien niet heel lang, maar is eigenlijk best goed voor budget merk Essence omdat (semi)matte lakjes erg lastig zijn. Meet me at the chimney is een van mijn verrassende zomerfavorieten.

Natural Beauty: Trilogy Eye Contour Cream

Trilogy Natural Skincare Eye Contour Cream

Time for another look at one of my favorite green brands Trilogy Natural Skincare and in particular their Eye Contour Cream. I love their rosehip oil, a true cult classic and have slowly been working my way through the collection. Trilogy relies on natural ingredients and supports ethical trade practices. The packaging is recyclable and there is – obviously- no animal testing.
