travelling — toiletries in your carry-on

if you’re like me and you don’t like to leave the house without your precious skincare and makeup, but also feel ridiculous by checking in your bag for a 3-day trip just because of the liquids-security issue, this video may just come in handy.

grab a cup of your favourite beverage, because this is going to be a long one…

LFBB August 2017

Here’s another unboxing for you. This one had me wondering about what happened this month and, when I went to do the maths… I got even more suspicious… I talked about it on my Insta Stories, also.

L’Oréal Low-Shampoo

on my last visit to the supermarket, I was flabbergasted: they have discontinued the only sulfate-free shampoo line that was not meant for extremely damaged and colour-treated hair and that was readily available (as in, in the supermarket). this oily haired gal that prides herself on keeping her locks on a delicate balance that only need washing up to 3 times a week but gets dandruff whenever she uses a regular sulfate shampoo was outraged.
then my eyes hit that new thingamajig L’Oréal came up with. I’m no stranger to the no-poo trend but had never tried it — and this is just LOW-poo, but still… it probably will be too heavy, I thought.
then I reminded myself of my 3 readers/subscribers and decided “what the heck! it’s for science!”

my favourite Lush products

although I have a great time with Lush’s bath bombs, bath mets and overall fun stuff, to me Lush is an overall really solid green-oriented brand with great products in all ranges. Lush is hardcore cruelty-free, many of their products are vegan, and they claim all of the chemicals they still use on their products (fragrance, sulfates, preservatives) to not be harmful for the skin, especially in the concentrations they use.
I had to had to do a video on my everyday Lush favourites.

nose disclaimer: I love soft, creamy, nutty scents, vanilla absolute, and then soft roses, coconut and coffee sort of aromas. not too much into the strongly fruity, tropical, sickening sweet or floral end of the smell spectrum. but all of this has to do with preferences, right? nothing like giving it a whiff in store ;)
