My blog has a new look!

8

Happy hump day :D We  have published the new design for my blog. Yay!! It’s been a bit quiet here lately cos I have been battling stomach problems (IBS) and food allergies. I’m learning to eat low FODMAP and I have left all the dairy and wheat out of my diet so I’m starting to feel better now. I still have a lot of food allergies to figure out though. These things will probably come up again in a few different health related blog post in future.

Beauty Box X Meikkipäät

10

Today I have another Finnish cosmetics box for you. This was sent to me and I was very excited to check it out. As usual the products inside are international so I’ll give you my opinion of them on this English side of my blog too. This is a one-shot box that is available in Finland only.

Some Essence shopping for spring

9

I recently did some Essence shopping. I was surprised to see the Juice It! Trend Edition in the store because I thought it came out last year. Did I miss something? Did they re-release it? So I got some products from that collection and two Matt Matt Matt lip products plus a lipliner pencil.

I love just Essence! Many of their products are so good and so affordable.

My first NCLA polishes

I received my first ever NCLA polishes this week. I was very excited to try these cos they are my first 7-free polishes. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the brand plus their color and finish selection is amazing. I also got NCLA Treatments First Base base coat to test.

Secret Scent Expression Coconut Splash – finally found an antiperspirant that works for me

8

Today I’m going to talk about my battle of finding a right deodorant/antiperspirant for myself. When I was younger I didn’t need to think about this at all. I could choose anything, just find the scent I liked and it worked. After my first child my hormones must have taken over and nothing worked. I tried so many products and they failed me almost as many times.

January Empties

8

I already showed you my favorite products in January and today it’s time for the empties. There wasn’t a ton of empties this month. I do have a lot of products that are almost out and they will probably be done and over with by the end of February. Actually, I think there’s already a bigger pile of Feb empties by now than what I have on this post.

February Bette Box – Finnish monthly subscription beauty box

8

It’s time to take a look what was inside of February Bette Box, a Finnish monthly subscription beauty box. This box is only available in Finland but the products in it are usually mostly internationally available so I might as well show you what was inside and talk about my first impressions. January box was the first ever and I was quite happy with it. At the same time I was a little nervous about this month’s box, wondering if it would live up to the expectations the January box created. I’m happy to say it did.

Signe Seebid Cucumber-Tea Tree Face Mask

8

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Today I have a Cucumber and Tea Tree clay face mask  from Signe Seebid, hand made natural cosmetics brand from Estonia. I’m already using two products from their brand and those are excellent. So when I placed my order for more of their amazing orange sugar scrub I added two new-to-me products to my order. Here’s the first one of them. I think Signe Seebid products are only available in Estonia and Finland at the moment. I still want to show this to you in case there’s a chance these lovely products will be available internationally later on.
