Flora Mare Skin Energizer – Fleur de Sel

Ah, France! The land of fromage, vin rouge and apparently best projection screen for skincare fantasies.

Don´t you agree? French skincare is as much a myth as French food, and while I am a fan of both (a cheese plate is life!), I´d advise you to take the things said about them with a grain of salt.

Probably a grain of Fleur de Sel de Camargue, to stay on topic.

So what if I tell you that the Flora Mare Skin Energizer not only contains marine extracts, but that these extracts are actually harvested in France, at the beautiful Atlantic Coast? Add some peptides and platinum to the mix and you have the modern version of a skincare fairy tale.

I at least was immediately eager to slather myself in the green goodness the Flora Mare Skin Energizer provides. Preferably with a side of Bûcheron.

But French phantasies aside, did the product convince?

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum – Not an INCI blog

I am NOT a skincare guru.

It is incredibly flattering when my blogging buddies call me that, and I am happy and grateful for everyone reading here and trusting my reviews, but I would never (ever!) claim that title for myself.

You see: This is NOT an INCI blog. I am not a chemist, nor do I have any experience working in the industry.

I am a doctor, and even though I have read a ton of scientific publications and dermatological textbooks, I would be lost if I had to come up with my own formula.

While I do think that I know more about skincare than the average person (even more than the average beauty blogger), I am still not an expert in this field, as blogs like Lab Muffin tend to teach me.

There is still so much to learn, and until I know everything, being called a skincare guru simply feels wrong.

So keep that in mind while reading my review on the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum.

Taking the day off – my evening skincare routine

While my mornings are all about an efficient, streamlined routine (if you fancy taking a look, click here), in the evenings I really like to take my time. Being a new mum with Mr Loca working crazy hours, this tends to be the me-time I get on an average day and I try to make the most of it.
Not in order of appliance (is that even a word?)
Wearing SPF and make-up on a (almost) daily base, I make sure to give my skin a proper cleanse. No matter how late it is and how tired I am, I just can´t just go to sleep without that. The thought of the days grime clogging my pores, feeding the bacteria and causing wrinkles and zits leaves me so itchy, it makes me get
up at 3 am, after I fell asleep on the couch trying to read and get on with my full on routine.
I just wish, I had that discipline considering exercise.
Or sweets.
