About a hour north of Auckland is the beautiful town of Matakana, which has an amazing farmer’s market every weekend! If you are somewhere in the area or are planning a trip to New Zealand, I can highly recommend to check it out! Despite the delicious food, I was happily surprised to find some natural skincare items as well, which I obviously had to try out!
As soon as I knew that I was going to move back to New Zealand (after living in Germany for the past 2.5 years), I started looking around the internet for green beauty companies and distributors (obviously…who needs a flat when you have makeup, right?). When you know you move across the world with only 2 suit cases you are kind of forced to stop buying makeup and beauty items and downsize to the bare minimum. However, if you already have someone you can ship new things to in the country you will move to (aka my parents), well then you might as well start doing that, right? 🙂 So that is how I found Lük Beautifood, a lovely Australian online shop, which distributes 100% Pure products (my favourite company, helloooo!!!) and also makes her own lip sticks! So imagine my excitement when I had these lovely new friends (please tell me I am not the only one who has a strong bonding with their makeup) waiting for me after a 3-day plane journey #treatyoself !
I have already mentioned it in this post, but just in case you missed my confession: I am a lip balm addict. However, in my defense, my addiction is more or less accidental. Today, for example, I bring to you three lip balms, which were given to me as gifts for various occasions (christmas, my birthday) by different people. Okay, I admit, that kind of shows that if people know me well they buy me lip balms and then we are back to square one…but anyway, I am rambling…My point is: I LOVE these lip balms and, yes I use all three of these at the same time (they alternate between purses, drawers, my desk and various pockets 😉 ).
I am sure you have seen these before as well, because they are crazily hyped up and everyone and their dog owns an EOS lip balm. That stands for Evolutions of Smooth by the way, which I did not know – clever name though, right? So you can imagine my excitement when I first read their ingredients and realised that a natural, organic lip balm has reached such an it-product status! Wohhoooo, 1 point for natural beauty!
Welcome to this new week, beauty-lovers! I hope you will have a great one! 🙂 Today I would like to share with you a product that I have been using A LOT lately. Like every day really. First off, I have to confess that I am an accidental lip balm/butter/product addict. Somehow these little guys just appear in my purse, on my desk, in my pockets… everywhere really. I am not complaining though, as my lips are loving the extra care and are always well nourished. This one from 100% Pure (no surprises in the choice of company here), is a special one though, as it is also nicely tinted.
I don’t know about you guys, but when it comes to getting up in the mornings I savour every extra minute in bed that I can get. So usually my morning routine is pretty hectic and I gladly take any short-cuts that will get me out of the house on time, while still looking work-ready. And that is where my new friends come into the game: These 3 little pods from 100%Pure (my favourite company, check out my last post where explain why I am so in love with their products).
So what are we talking about here…Technically, the two lighter shades are Fruit Pigmented Satin Eye Shadows and the red shade is a Fruit Pigmented Pot Rouge, but in reality they are miracle workers and I use them for a lot more than what they are intended for. 🙂 They all come in these cute little glass containers and are perfect for throwing into your on-the-go makeup bag!
