Keeping with the SPF trend, I have another SPF containing product to talk about today, a sunscreen to be exact, and this one is by now famous and easily available, french pharmacy brand Bioderma.
It is summer so naturally I've been focusing a lot on using products containing SPF, and the higher the SPF the better in my opinion! One of those products is the Protection Naturelle Powder by Chantecaille with a whopping SPF 46! It has become a go-to for me this summer, now let me tell you why.
There's not that much exciting stuff this month. I actually didn't finish a lot of stuff. For me, at least. I did finish some makeup items, body care and some hair care, the latter being a very welcome edition to my empties as they take ages to finish. No full size skincare this month, which I think is a first. I didn't focus on using stuff up this past month, and wanted more to just use whatever I gravitated towards, which was nice, but I ended up with fewer empties. Lots of things are so close to being finished though, so they will be in next months' empties instead.
So I went on a bit of an unplanned and unexpected break from the blog. There was just a lot of changes happening in June, and I was really short on time, and the blog just had to be one of the things to be put on hold. I am now officially on my summer holiday though, and can't wait to have time to get back into everything. I hope you are all enjoying your holidays, or if it's not just yet for you, that you will when the time comes.
May Lindstrom's Blue Cocoon was something I wanted to try for a long time, before finally deciding to take the plunge about this time last year. I initially hesitated mostly as it was complicated to get shipped here, but when I discovered it on a Norwegian online retailer, and on sale on top of that, I just couldn't pass it up. May Lindstrom's products are all organic, natural, free of most typical things you don't really want, and really high quality. I've previously used and reviewed The Jasimine Garden Botanical Mist ( here ), which I loved. The Blue Cocoon I think I may actually love even more.
May was quite a fun month. We had the national day here in Norway, the weather was great so I've spent a lot of time enjoying the beautiful outdoors and I went for a little weekend trip to Vilnius. Due to the trip I have a few samples I didn't quite finish over there, but took back with me to finish here. Otherwise there's a lot of regulars, and some things I've been working on for a while. There's also a few makeup items and some nail polish which is super exciting!
Summer finally hit Norway by the second half of May and has come full-blown since. The sun is out everyday and it's warm and nice and green. I don't have much skincare this month as I've been sticking to using the same stuff as I've been for a while, but there's quite a bit of makeup this time.
A long while back I was given a sample of the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Treatment. It was amazing and I really wanted to buy the full size. When I went to Aesop I noticed there was a Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum, which contained 100ml of product (compared to just 15ml in the other one), and the Serum cost just approximatively 10pounds/dollars more. I decided to try the Serum instead. After all, how different could they be, right?
I've been really interested in getting one of all the bronzer, blush and highlighting palettes that's been released lately as it would be super convenient for travel. Imagine then how excited I was when I saw that this was getting released with not only those three products, but also eyeshadows included!
Here we go again with another months worth of empties! I finished quite a few makeup items this month, and decided to get rid of one or two things. Otherwise I've gotten through a few sachet samples, which I am happy about, and then it's the usual round of body products.
