Here’s a secret: sometimes I don’t really want to review something not because I’m lukewarm about it, but because I am too attached. Blogging about beauty involves constantly trying new things, but sometimes I’m actually really happy to stick to what I know and love, like Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Treatment! To put simply, it’s a dry oil, and probably the heaviest but the best I’ve ever tried! If I have anything important the next day or just feel my skin needs some extra boost, this is what I take out of my arsenal!
This is something I haven’t really noticed till now: a lot of the skincare brands I have blogged about recently haul all the way from Australia. Alpha-H is famous for their glycolic acid-based products, and today I’m sharing my two cents about their bestseller, Liquid Gold.
I have to admit something: I used to be horrible to my neck. When I applied skincare products to my face, I left it out. When I applied lotion to my body, I still left it out. My neck was constantly in a skincare limbo, which is really bad since that’s one of the first places that show signs of aging! That’s why Babor Skinovage Firming Neck & Décolleté Cream was a much-needed and welcome addition to my skincare routine, and I am happy to report it does work!
I might have mentioned that “organic” or “all-natural” skincare brands are a bit of hit or miss with me. Today I’m showing you a brand that is a big hit, Aesop. I got to know Aesop years ago with Animals (pet shampoo. Tango has needed some baths in his life, but much to his relief the bottle a) is at its end and b) now mostly serves as my brush detergent) and a face cream, but then the brand was promptly forgotten until I rediscovered it some months ago. After having spent some time with the Geranium Leaf Body Balm and Rosehip Seed Oil Lip Cream, I am ready to share my thoughts with you!
I’ve been in love with Jurlique for a couple of years, and the affair started with their Rose Hand Cream. It’s the product that taught me when rose is done well, it doesn’t necessarily smell old. Around 3 months ago I found the nice Pick of the Bunch set on Beautybay and decided to give it a try!
