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?

Empties: Miniature Edition

Empties Miniature Edition

End of the month again, so time to have a look at the products I finished this month. It is a bit of a special edition, as each of these products is a tester. I had so many of these lying around and decided to work my way through them and collect them all in a single post. Obviously, you can’t really test a skincare product properly from a small sample, so I will just be giving you my first impressions on these.

This Works: In Transit Camera Close-Up

In Transit Camera close-up thisworks

If a brand claims a particular product does just about everything at once, I am usually rather sceptical. You know the type I mean: the serum that miraculously deals with twelve different issues at once. Usually, these products just leave me disappointed, even if they are actually quite nice, because they simply don’t live up to the bold claims on the packaging.  So, I approached the In Transit Camera Close-Up by Thisworks with caution as this claims to be a mask,moisturiser, and primer in one.

I don’t really want to tell you the news just yet as I don’t want to jinx it, but we all know how stressful job interviews are right?!

Purging my Stash

Purging the stash

This insane changeable summer weather of late -no honestly, right now it is pouring with rain and grey, yet two days ago I was wandering around in a dress enjoying the sunshine -has been irritating, but those dreary Sundays are perfect for cleaning and organising. Inspired by Stashy from Stash Matters, I decided it was time to get rid of some stuff I simply don’t use and older products that have passed their use by date (in some cases, I am a little ashamed to admit, by quite some margin). Let’s have a look at what is going into the trash.

Golden Goodie: Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or golden body oil

Some fragrances just instantly transport you back to a great memory and the tropical scent of Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse just reminds me of summer as a child. I don’t know why exactly, but it works every time I open the bottle. Just makes me happy, but it isn’t the only great thing about this mini bottle of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or.
