 I am quit loyal when it comes to skincare and specially when it comes to creams.
I do not want to put something different on my face every week or so but when I am hearing positive feedback about something and specially from people with the same skintype I want to try it so badly!
It's actually a good idea to switch skincare ones in a while.

And I am very enthusiastic about this product from Estee Lauder. I am talking about the Hydrationist. Is no new launch to be honest it's here for a while.
With this cold weather my skin need something extra. No light-weighted moisturizers like in the summer time. It smells amazing (you know how important I think that is!) and it feels so good on my skin.

About the moisture creme: 

Feel the instant rush of moisture. Resist the look of aging. Stay significantly hydrated for up to 24 hours.
Immediately see a fresh vitality. With its moisture in balance, skin is naturally ready to fight signs of premature aging.
Over time, skin's moisture barrier is strengthened by 50%*. With our exclusive Sustainable Moisture Complex™, Hydrationist leaves skin youthful and healthy looking. Soft, silky smooth and super hydrated.

The Normal/Combination skin creme is refreshingly lightweight, silky. The luscious Dry Skin creme comforts and cushions skin.

 I've bought myself a new lipstick! Charlotte Tilbury is a make-up brand that is very populair and since a few months also available in The Netherlands. So it was time to try out something. I was checking out the eyeshadow pallets at the counter a few times but I could not make a decision.
Then up to the lipsticks! A nudy-pink.. or a classic red? I've tried a few and then I fell for the "So Marilyn" I like it because it's creamy and not so matt. The pigment it quit intens and classy for the next season. Yeah I am quit impressed so far.. the quality is good and it stays on the lips for many many hours with the same intensity.

If there is a way to make a skin-care lover happy its with this masque set from Dermalogica!

Also included the Multivitamin power recovery masque.
I've wrote reviews about them but a short reminder:

Nutrient-rich Algae Extract helps moisturize and soften skin, Pro-Vitamin B5 helps nourish damaged skin while botanical extracts of Licorice, Comfrey and Burdock soothe, calm and help decrease sensitivity. Apply this revitalizing masque after cleansing as an ultimate remedy for dulling, dry, dehydrated, lackluster, photodamaged skin and skin aging. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.

Skin Hydrating Masque:
A refreshing, moisturizing masque to remedy dry, stressed skin. Use after cleansing to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Unique cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid traps moisture to deliver time-released hydration for lasting suppleness.

A new launch from Collistar!  I love their bodycare.

Welcome to the world of Profumo dell’Amore with essential oils and petal extracts, a seductive and enveloping olfactory creation that is a prelude to the new Collezione Benessere dell’Amore from Collistar. Dedicated to a woman who places love at the center of her life, is romantic and knows how to seduce with grace."
A romantic and seductive fragrance. A dance of rose, peony, magnolia and orchid petals, combined with delicious hints of fruit.

Love luxurious candles! Marc Ibane is known for their famous natural tanning spray (which I love! ) but they now launch a different (unexpected?!) product: A small selection of scented candles.
The ingredients are minimalistic and the quality is high. 

Each candle is manufactured in a traditional way and precisely hand-poured in layers to blend the wax and the fragrance evenly until the end of the burning time.

You have 3 options: , Pastèque Ananas, Tabac Cuir and Scandy Chic. Then you can choose if you like a black or a white glass. Both classic but I went for white. That suits the fragrance if you ask me.
Now that the winter is starting I love burning candles. This is also a perfect gift for the holiday's!
 The price is €55,-

It has been a long time since I've gifted myself something luxurious like this. 
Still dreaming of owning a bag someday. 
After a intens month (giving birth and having a baby) I thought I would treat myself on a birth gift!

I went to the big Chanel store to buy new earrings but I could not find any that were my style. 
Than this beauty crossed my eye!
It's a tiny wallet/cardholder were you can put money in and your cards.
The beige color is gorgeous and limited edition!
I could went for classic black but.. this is really the "Ilse" color ;)
I'ts also not the classic hardware but the "boy" 
Love it!!

Top Notes:
This oriental-chypre fragrance includes challenging and refreshing notes. A lovely touch Pink Grapefruit, a light dose of Italian bergamot associated with Plum leaves provide sparkling energy.
Middle notes: 
Besides the lively top notes, you can also find an elegant bouquet of Sambac Jasmine. The Osmanthus and Neroli forming a perfect combination to discover a sensual and provocative femininity.
The soul of the fragrance gives the woman a modern, timeless style. The subtle and feminine scent of Myrrh, Vetiver and Tonquin Bean leaves a dark but cozy warmth behind ...

I am not quit sure yet if this is a fragrance for me. You all know that I like clean/flowery fragrances. But for autumn I like to spice it up a bit, like Coco Noir From Chanel. So I kind of like this one but it's kind of sweet so on my skin that gets warmer.
I would like to advice this fragrance to a woman that likes warm, classic fragrances.
