Dermalogica After Sun Repair (+Winactie!)

 Spring truly has arrived an the sun in showing his pretty face more often. Trying to get in touch with every single sun beam. Spending more and more time on terraces with friends which I love! But that can be very tricky to. The first sun beams are always the strongest and your skin isn't used to the sun yet. So it's important to always wear an SPF. Specially now the next season has arrived.
Protecting is not the only part of treating your skin right. When your skin has exposed to the sun you need to give your skin some time to relax and get the change to recover. This product from Dermalogica works very well for that! Specially because it's sort of a balm that's very light-weighted. I love Dermalogica, its one of my favorite brands.
A cooling treatment balm to help remedy damage from exposure to UV sunlight. Lightweight gel helps calm skin and reduce irritation induced by sunburn.


Provides instant comfort and naturally reduces the pain associated with overexposure.
Makes a soothing post-waxing balm that cools and helps minimize redness.
Moisturizes the skin to help shorten recovery time while calming extracts soothe and refresh.

how to use

Apply a generous amount over previously sun-exposed areas of the face and body. Keep product away from the eyes. Repeat application on sensitized areas, as necessary, for maximum skin comfort.


quick tip

Use after waxing to cool and help minimize redness.
And The best of all? (For the Dutch ladies)

Origins Clear Improvement Mask


 I've recently received this mask from Origins. I'm  a huge fan of face mask and I've never tried any of Origins. So I was very curious! I've heard such a positive reactions on this clear improvement mask.
When environmental toxins, dirt and debris get under your skin, its waste-filtering system gets jammed, pores get clogged, skin looks cloudy. Nature's complexion clean-up crew gets to the bottom of skins overcast condition and clears the way for it to act its best. Activated Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Without all that "stuff" down there, skin "breathes a sigh of relief."

HOW TO USE: Once a week or as often as needed, open pores with warm, moist towel and layer mask on. Allow to dry, rinse well. Watch your skin shake off the shroud of dullness and take on a new clarity.

The mask doesn't really has a fragrance. It feels very soft on the skin and also calming. After you applied the mask on the skin you wait till it gets dry. That feels like always very tight and dry. But after you wash it of (that takes a while though.. you needs lots of water) it doesn't feel greasy at all! It gave me such a fresh clean feeling. I do have some groove pore area on my cheeks so there I could see the most differences.
Have you tried this mask from Origins yet? What was your experience?
