The Body Shop Superfood face masks – Good enough to eat?

If you did watch my blog from August, you´ll know that I visited The Body Shop for the launch of the new Superfood Face masks. And of course I had to pick up one. Or two.

Okay. Make it three.

And samples of the remaining ones, so I can say I have tried every new face mask they launched. All in the name of science, of course.

The main thing I noticed upfront is that all of them smell and look delicious. I wouldn´t recommend eating them though, but I have been tempted.

But which ones are my top picks? Here are my recommendations and overall thoughts!

Taking out the trash IX – Empties

As I mention at the end of the video, that was supposed to be my September Empties.

Yeah, I know.

In my defense, I do have a ton of video ideas and barely any time to film and edit them, so I guess I will leave the „monthly“ empties schedule and sneak them in as a Sunday bonus video whenever I find the time.

What better way to spend a Sunday then talking about trash, am I right?

September 2016 Favorites – Still a beauty blog, promised!

Yes, I know. This is called a beauty blog. And again, I only have one makeup item to show you in my favorites. My excuse? I don’t really have one.

But I try to make it up by rambling on about skincare and life in general, and I promise I am all settled now and will play more with my makeup throughout next month.

So here they are, without further ado: My September 2016 Favorites. With bloopers.

Face masks – All you need to know

When I asked in my recent videos which topic you would want to hear more about, sheet masks were highly requested.

But as sheet masks on their own are not that big of a topic, I decided to film a video about face masks in general, with a special emphasis on sheet masks.

Oh, and with bloopers.

July 2016 Favorites

As July is almost over, it is time for another favorites post.

With the upcoming move (it is actually moving day today!) and the incredible heatwave we had, makeup had to be quick and minimal. Not that I am complaining about the heat, not in the slightest. I feel a lot more energetic and happy when the sun is out, even though our current flat with the big window fronts was probably not the best place to be throughout the day.

As far as skincare is concerned, I didn´t really try much new things. Most of it was packed away in boxes anyway, and I wanted to finish as many products as possible, to not move half empty containers.

So prepare for minimal makeup, old favorites and a short episode of #grannygonewild at the end. And blooper, of course.

Taking out the trash VII – July 2016 Empties

After filming this months empties video I realized that I seem to have separation anxiety when it comes to lip products. I mean, seriously, a six year old lipgloss?

That is gross!

But no longer, four makeup items had to go, and I did finish some skincare as well.

So without further ado, my July 2016 Empties, along with mini reviews and, of course, bloopers at the end!

June 2016 Favorites

Another month, another favorites post. Ain´t that how it goes? I will tell you what was not my favorite this month in the post here:

The weather!

 

June 2016 Favorites

 

You see, it was raining pretty much all June, and with June 21th coming along, I knew the days were going to get shorter. Now I am all about those long, warm and light summer evenings spend outdoors with friends and a cold drink, and if that didn´t happen before the nights are getting longer again, I feel cheated.

But enough moaning about the weather, it is time for the things I enjoyed!

Taking out the trash VI – June 2016 Empties

Empties and watermelon – is there anything else you need for a chilled summer evening? I don’t think so.

This months version features a lot of Antipodes products, which brings back memories of our road trip to New Zealand. And of course turns up the ancient question:

Why does everything always have to run out at the same time?

Taking out the trash V – May Empties

Another month, another empties video. This time it is a little bit of everything: Makeup and skincare as well as hair and body care. Oh, and a perfume!

Not that I am going through all these products in one month, mind you, but I am making an effort to finish my stuff before using new one. And as I felt like I needed to stop rambling for ten minutes plus about my trash, I made different piles to film different videos in the time coming.

 

 

Yes, I sat there organizing my trash. And planning to use this trash in the upcoming months. This is either art or very disturbing. I will leave it to you to judge.

Inspired by … Jill Stuart Summer 2016

If you are not familiar with the „Inspired by…“ series, click here for an explanation.
But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.
Dressing up and awkward posing included!

This month I really wanted to do something with a hat (silly idea, as it turned out), and something blue, so I chose the Jill Stuart Summer 2016 ad for it´s beachy and summery vibes.

Now I had forgotten that I lost my white hat last year, so I had to make do with a big straw hat. Plus the hand positioning turned out more challenging than I would have thought.

But see for yourself, upon common request I added some outtakes at the end that explain what I mean.
