Beauty investments to survive winter

19.11.2016

We can all argue about which product is best to keep your hands moisturized and your lips hydrated. But one thing is sure, stores will smash products to your head claiming to be the best ones you have ever had. Stop listening and start sampling.

One of my golden tips is sampling. Wherever you go, you have to ask a sample first to try out whether your skin can bear the products. If a store doesn't agree there is a big chance they were trying to trick you in buying. Most reliable stores where to buy your products are the pharmacy and specialized stores, mind the exceptions. In Belgium I recommend stores like Fin Du Jour, Lush, Ici Paris XL and your local pharmacy. They will always help you find the best product that matches your skin type and give you a sample of it. I tried out many products and picked out five of my favorites that really were worth investing in. If you also need to protect your skin against the cold then these products might also be something for you.

This nourishing hand cream made with honey and vitamin C protects against premature aging and goes deep into the skin to prevent dryness. The nails are also protected from becoming brittle.

Balneum bath oil

 

Balneum Forte is a very greasy bath oil against drought. It works immediately from the first time. Compared with fun and nice smelling bath oils like from Rituals or The Body Shop, this one is very natural thanks to the pure peanut oil and paraffin. It also has a healing effect.

Paraffinum liquidum, arachis hypogaea, laureth-4, oleamide DEA, isopropyl palmitate, parfum, geraniol, hydroxycitronellal, hexyl cinnamal, limonene, linalool. Propylene glycol, BHT, ascorbyl palmitate, citric acid

 

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse


This dry oil might be my all-time favorite product. It reduces dry skin and dull hair plus it smells like summer paradise. It is a very natural product made with six vegetable oils. Dry oil benefits us all because of its anti-aging effect.

 

Ingredients:

 

COCO-CAPRYLATE/CAPRATE, MACADAMIA INTEGRIFOLIA SEED OIL, DICAPRYLYL ETHER, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS (SWEET ALMOND) OIL, CORYLUS AVELLANA (HAZEL) SEED OIL, CAMELLIA OLEIFERA SEED OIL, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, CAMELLIA JAPONICA SEED OIL, TOCOPHEROL, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, BORAGO OFFICINALIS SEED OIL, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS (ROSEMARY) LEAF EXTRACT, POLYGLYCERYL-3 DIISOSTEARATE, ASCORBIC ACID, SOLANUM LYCOPERSICUM (TOMATO) FRUIT EXTRACT, BENZYL SALICYLATE, LINALOOL, LIMONENE, CITRONELLOL, GERANIOL, BENZYL ALCOHOL [N2212/A].
 

Furterer Curbicia shampoo

 

This shampoo not only smells amazing but it creates a great effect. My hair is very oily so I must wash my hair at least 4 times a week. This shampoo helps to reduce the frequency of shampooing.

 

Ingredients:

 

Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Cocamide MIPA, Glycol Palmitate, Glycol Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Limonene, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Oil), Coco-Glucoside, Citric Acid, Camphor, Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil (Cucurbita Pepo Seed Oil), Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Flower Oil (Eugenia Caryophyllus Oil), Eugenol, Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Methylisothiazolinone, Polyquaternium-22, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil (Rosmarinus Officinalis Oil), Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Oil (Thymus Vulgaris), Thymus Zygis Oil

 

 

Vaseline

 

Great for dry feet, a red nose, dry lips... If you mix the vaseline with sugar you created a homemade lip scrub.
