The Ordinary Lactic Acid

One of my wishes to try for 2019 were some good exfoliants. I had always used physical exfoliants before and they worked well enough, but I had also heard they aren’t the best for your skin or the environment. So I decided to try a chemical exfoliator instead. With my skin being quite sensitive, I…

The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil

I feel it’s been some time since I last reviewed a skincare product and that’s easily explained: I just wasn’t trying anything new. With skincare I love using up what I have before opening up a new product. Not only is that more sustainable, it also means the product cannot expire before you can use…

The Ordinary Buffet Serum

One brand known for its no nonsense skincare items at an affordable price point? The Ordinary of course! And because of that I have been really curious to try more of their products. Not everything I try has been successful, but I think that in the Buffet Serum I have definitely found a gem that…

The Ordinary “B” Oil

Face oil is probably one of my favorite skincare products to use and I love trying them. One of my most recent trials is The Ordinary’s “B” Oil. This isn’t necessarily one of the most raved about products by the affordable skincare brand, but it was one that came onto my radar as it is…

The Ordinary Serum foundation

The Ordinary is not only an affordable skincare brand, they also do some other products. One of those products is a range of 2 different foundations: the coverage and serum foundations. The coverage foundation promises to be more full coverage, but since I prefer a light to medium coverage foundation I decided to try the…

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid

A skincare brand I had been wanting to try for some time is The Ordinary. A while ago, the Internet was abuzz with how well this affordable skincare brand should work. The idea is simple: simple ingredients that are stripped down to its core at an affordable price point that just does what it says…

Top 9 Most Repurchased Skincare

Today we are talking skincare favorites. These are my most repurchased skincare products for dry, dehydrated, sensitive skin.

Skincare Routine

I am not a skincare buff by any means, but I was determined to make 2019 the year I pay more attention to what I am using on my face. In my 20s I struggled for years trying to find products that worked on my dehydrated, sensitive skins. After some trial and error, I found…

Shop My Stash December 2021

A bit earlier than planned: but I am already coming to you with my Shop My Stash. I felt ready and December is always a weird month for content so I figured it really wouldn’t make much of a difference if I did it a week earlier than planned. So today we are going over…

Skincare haul

As you may know, I am looking to amp up my skincare routine this year. So when I bought a few bits to get started and stocked up on some of my skincare favorites, I also made a bit of a wish list of stuff I would like to try. That’s what today’s video is…

Foundation Collection 2021

I thought I could do a more in-depth look at my makeup collection. We are kicking off the series with a look at my foundation collection.

Top 6 Foundation for Summer Time

My favorite foundations for the summer? Lightweight, super light coverage foundations that are barely there. These are my top 6 favorites.

Beauty Haul

Today’s video is a massive beauty haul because I needed to stock up on some haircare, bodycare and skincare.

Winter Skincare Routine

You may know that I am quite diligent in my skincare use. I rotate products out when I use them up as I feel that changing up my skincare too much isn’t great for my skin. So once every season I tend to update you on the products I am using and how I feel…

Shop My Stash August 2021

In this video we are doing my August shop my stash! I review my July products and select the products to try in August.

Fall Skincare Update + New In

We’re in the midst of fall so that means it is time to review my skincare routine. For two reasons: my skin needs are different from the summer time and I have been super lazy when it comes to my skincare. So it is time to get back into the swing of things. I also…

Empty Products | July 2019

It’s been a few months since I showed you my empty products. So high time we dived into my beauty trash and give you some mini reviews on products I have been using up recently. I used up skincare, haircare and bodycare products from several brands. Some of these products are longstanding favorites while others…

Shop My Stash | April 2019

It is the start of a new month, which means we are going over the products I am selecting for use yet again. In March, I got some consistent use again out of the products I selected and so it is time to change them out again. Some of these I will have reviewed by…

Good Molecules Priming Moisturizer review

Time for some skincare! I was sent the Priming Moisturizer by Good Molecules and have been using it as a night time moisturizer since. Now it’s time to review it.

Shop My Stash | March 2019

It’s the first Tuesday of the month and you know what that means: a new shop my stash. I used all of the products in my makeup drawer religiously last month, so it is high time to be pulling them out and switching them for new products. As a bonus, I also talk you through…

Empty Products | January 2019

It’s been a few months since I did my last Empty Products video and now that it’s been a few months I have used up quite a few products again. So today I will be talking you through everything I used up in the last few months of 2018. There are some makeup bits, a…

Sunday Riley Good Genes review

Do you remember me wanting to try some more expensive skincare? Well, I tried some. This is my review for the Sunday Riley Good Genes glycolic acid treatment.

Good Molecules Cleansing Balm review

Have you tried cleansing balms before? I had but had never found one I liked, until I found the Good Molecules Instant Cleansing Balm. This is the review.

Nabla Skin Glazing highlighter

This is the second Nabla review I am posting in a week’s time, but I just so happen to be testing out a few of their products. I put their Skin Glazing highlighter in my Shop My Stash, so it is time to update you how I feel about this highlighter. I have been using…

Book Review | June 2018

Just a few more days until my summer vacation starts, which means I will have finally more time to read. Because July was another meagre reading month. It’s not that I don’t want to read, I just haven’t had the energy. The last few weeks leading up to the summer vacation are always the busiest…

Blogger recognition award

Not one but TWO lovely ladies awarded me with the Blogger Recognition Award in recent weeks, which means I have to do a post on this. I always appreciate it if people enjoy reading my blog and so I’m all for spreading that love. Blogger recognition award

Win + Beautybloggers Dilemma Tag

It’s here! It’s here! Another beautybloggers’ day with a new blog hop to hopefully introduce you to 24 blogs by some amazing ladies as well as a chance to win a nice prize. Because this weekend it just so happens to be that my blog has its 6 year anniversary! Six years!!! I pinch myself…

Sassoon Edit Hold finishing spray

Today I’m reviewing the Sassoon Edit Hold finishing spray. This high end haircare product has been a game changer for me. I was never a fan of hairspray. I bought a can 3 years ago and still have finished it. It’s too sticky, it stinks and it weighs my hair down rather than make sure…

Combined book review #8

The time of year I read the most books? Fall. Hands down. As the days become darker and the temperatures start to fall, I love snuggling up on the couch (or the train, because that’s where I do most of my reading to be honest) with a book. That is why it’s only been 2…

Dior lipstick round up

When it comes to the highest priced make up brands, my favorite would have to be Dior. I feel their overall collection is well-rounded, with plenty of classics (but not only) and the odd bright pop of color (yet nothing too crazy). One side of the brand I hadn’t really explored much yet were their…

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Diffused Heat

A little while ago it seemed everyone on Youtube was ranting and raving about Hourglass. First there were the Ambient Lighting powders, followed by the Ambient Lighting blushes. Hourglass is not readily available in The Netherlands and I haven’t seen any of their products being reviewed on Dutch blogs. When I found the brand and…

Combined book review #5

Remember that reading kick that I have been on these past few weeks? Well, it’s still going strong. So strong that this post won’t even include all that I read. What is astonishing to me though, is the fact that I read a grand total of 30 books in 2014. Half of these I read…

Combined book review #4

I’ve been on a massive reading kick these past few weeks. I finished listening to the Harry Potter audio books at the end of fall break and found I needed a substitute. And I figured, if I can’t be read to, I’ll just do it myself. So now I’m reading on the train to and…

NOTW: Indigo Sparkle

Nail time! For a few weeks in November, I decided to take proper care of my nails. Ever since last winter, my nails had been so dry and brittle. They just kept on breaking and it seemed as if wearing nail polish only made things worse. So when I was at the drugstore, buying nail…

Monthly favorites (February 2014)

February seems to have flown by. This month meant taking more time to get back on my feet and a doctor’s appointment to check my physical well-being (I’m fine in case you’re wondering). It also meant encountering some more new products or discovering old favorites and new combinations. Join me in a relay of products,…

High end lipsticks #1: Chanel

Today I’m bringing you the first part of a two part post featuring some high end lipsticks that I bought over the past 6 months or so. First up is Chanel and tomorrow will be devoted to Dior. I bought these lipsticks on discounts from the high end drugstore where they quite often have deals…
