The pixi skintreats Rose Ceramide Cream is the one I almost missed.

And yes, “The one I almost missed” is a long standing skincare term, same as “The one that got away.” Only less life-changing, less heartbreaking and, usually, less romantic.

Although you could probably argue with the latter, at least in this case: Pink packaging, roses, it ticks all the romance boxes.

Still, I was not interested. “Ultra-rich cream suitable for normal to dry skin”, these are words that I do definitely NOT look for in my products.

What can I say, winter had come, my skin was feeling rough and I thought: “Why not! Just use it, what could possibly go wrong?”

I just shift my attention to skincare products.

The cleanser I am flirting with in 2018? Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser.

Caudalie Premier Cru Serum – Motivation

Motivation can come from different sources. Like, you motivate yourself because you really want something. Or you are motivated by something external, like the bonus you´ll get if your work turns out superior.

And sometimes you are motivated by another person. Your wife, for example. Like it happened in the case of developing the Caudalie Premier Cru Serum. Dr. David Sinclair (Harvard) was approached by Caudalie with a research question and almost declined the offer. Almost. Until his wife said: “Oh, Caudalie? I use a lot of their stuff.”

True Story? I don´t know. I read it in a magazine and immediately knew I had to give the Caudalie Premier Cru Serum a go – good thing my mother had a bottle in her bathroom cabinet already.
