New Organic Skincare at Vivaness 2017

Vivaness is Europe’s biggest trade show of organic skincare. I attended for the first time this year to scout new organic skincare products and was positively overwhelmed by the amount of super interesting brands and products.

This Face Serum Keeps You Young and Wise

This Face Serum Keeps You Young and Wise

“I just keep getting wiser dahhhhling.” I’m starting this first post of the year with a serum that’s called Another Year Wiser by Neighbourhood Botanicals.

What a Body Serum does for your Mind and Body: Khus+Khus Modern Herbal Infusion

A Balanced Body and Mind Are you using a face serum? If yes, why not use a body serum as well? As I’ve been mentioning throughout the blog, our skin absorbs between 60 to 70% of what we put on it. The stuff goes right into our bloodstream. This is why it is so much better for our well-being to exclude harsh chemicals and instead welcome ingredients with healing properties. This is not always 100% possible in every situation and that’s OK, as long as the majority of what you get into your system is…
