If you’re reading this, you may have noticed that I did not put the most affordable products on my list haha (some of these goodies are a. quite steep, b. geographically unavailable or c. both ) However, those are really the products that I’d love to have in my possession *evil laugh* :-).
May Lindstrom Skin The Complete Experience
I recently bought a few samples enabling me to get a glimpse of this high-coveted natural skincare line. I tried the clean dirt (which is actually a cleanser ) and the problem solver (which is a mask). Both products, due to their incredible ingredients ( raw cacao, healing bamboo charcoal, soil nutrients, salts, exotic warming spices etc..) are potent and effective, leaving the skin detoxified. I’ve already raved on Twitter about my love for the Problem Solver, which definitely feels like a spiritual experience.
Now quality has a price: in this case, it’s quite high, but the quality is incredible. This little black box contains every item of May Lindstrom’s beauty line: The Clean Dirt – The Good Stuff – The Problem Solver – The Youth Dew – Skin Handmade Treatment Bowl and Skin Treatment Brush. The good news: the products are meant to last for an entire year.
I’ve tried quite a few RMS Beauty (concealer, highlighter, lip2cheek, cream shadow) and I’m completely sold. I decided to purchase RMS “un” cover-up in shade 22 for now, but truth to be told, I’d love to buy everything haha.
Therefore I put here the RMS essential gift set, which is an assortment of RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up, RMS Beauty Cream Eye Shadow, RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek, RMS Beauty Living Luminizer &
RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream.
Penhaligons Ladies Miniature Fragrance Collection.
It’s probably the less “green” product on this list, but it’s such an iconic brand and I’ve always wanted to try Penhaligon perfumes. This is a beautiful box containing 5ml bottles of Lily
of the Valley, Malabah, Ellenisia, Artemisia and Gardenia.
Neom tranquility bath foam
Neom candles are such a hit, but I wouldn’t mind trying their bath foam.
This tranquility bath foam smells like English Lavender. It is also packed with Marshmallow (oh yum!), Aloe Leaf, Coconut, Sweet Almond, Sweet Basil and Jasmine). I can only imagine a warm bath with Neom bath products to be a blissful and soothing experience.
This little roll-on contains a blend of essential oils (primrose oil, lavender, lemon, thyme, parsley…) to diminish blemishes. I have tried so many spot treatments but most were inconclusive, and based on the reviews, this one is a must-have.
What I find particularly interesting is the fact that it contains no tea tree oil (unlike most spot treatments). Since there is no retailer in Europe, you have to buy it on Osmia’s website.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask – Plum limited edition
I tried one sample of Tata Harper’s resurfacing mask, which could also be named resurrecting mask because that’s how my skin felt afterward. I understand why this product got so many beauty awards. It tightens the pores and gives your face an incredible plump and glow. Recently they released a limited edition, which according to their website is “infused with Wild Plum Blossom Hydrosols & Purple French Clay for deeper hydration, improved elasticity, & accelerated cell renewal and collagen formation”
In short : plum to plump 🙂
Jane Iredale D2O Hydration Spray
I don’t have any spray setting the makeup, never used any. However, at the end of the day, I think it might be judicious to try one to see if my makeup (especially when I’m wearing mineral makeup) could last longer. This one also hydrates and plumps the face.
Baobab loose powder
Baobab fruit powder forms naturally inside the hard-shelled fruit of the
African Baobab tree. It’s high in Vitamin C, Fibre, Calcium and Potassium. I bought one sample on Beingcontent to see the taste and it seems to be the perfect substitute for sugar. It has a subtle sweet taste (almost zesty) You can put it in your smoothies, juices or sprinkle it in yogurts, oatmeal. It’s suitable for use in a wide range of food and
ZuZu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner
Nice list :-)) would love to try May Lindstrom products too :-))
Thank you hehe. Well you can order some samples on Amazingy.com. That's what I did because I did not want to buy the full size product, before seeing how skin would react to it.
