Summer is in full swing and we’re all enjoying the sun and hopefully the sea. Unfortunately the sun is only fun if we protect ourselves properly.

Happy Friday everyone! This week I’ve tried some products by Lovely Day Botanicals, a vegan organic skin care start up from Berlin. I’ve stumbled over their beautiful Instagram Account while looking for products with hyaluronic acid in it. And I’ve found it: the quintessential toner with vegan hyaluronic acid.
