Skönhet is the Swedish word for beauty. Perfume in lovely bottles from Organic Glam.
Rituals products are fab! I haven’t tried all their stuff but the body butter is fantastic.
I am especially fond of the Sakura Rituals as Sakura happens to be my middle name. I was born in Japan during the blooming of cherry blossoms. Yep, that’s the truth.
Sweet Nina at Presskontakterna is a genius when it comes to beauty products. The press agency carry a wide range of really top notch brands. As I am a sucker for moisturizers this place is heaven on earth for me and we had a jolly old time Nina and I. She gave an extra push for her personal favorites: Vitamin A Booster from Beauté Pacifique and SkinRise Bionic tonic from Exuviance.
Lovely and lush and Oooooooh so sweet smelling soaps in a box. The perfect present from Rancé 1795.
Rancé 1795 is very exclusive indeed: Since the beginning of 1600s the Rancé family became famous for producing perfumed gloves for the French Aristocracy in Grasse (France). In 1795 François Rancé turned entirely to perfumery. His innovative spirit led him to create extremely refined and modern perfumes, which secured him the favour of Napoleon. He became the Empereur’s favourite perfumer, and created for him ”Le Vainqueur”, ”Triomphe” and ”L’Eau de Austerliz”. In honour of Josephine Bonaparte he created ”l’Impératrice” which he presented to the Empress in a precious Sevres porcelain box. The last example of this precious porcelain objet d’art is kept in the Rancé archives. Several generations of Rancé have followed. At the end of 1800s Alexandre Rancé moved to Milan; his place at the head of the family firm is held today by his granddaughter Jeanne Sandra Rancé with her son Jean Maurice Alexandre Rancé.
L’Occitane is another fine brand with a french touch. They recently launched four new lovely fragrances: Jasmin & Bergamote, Magnolia & Mûre, Vanille & Narcisse, Thé Vert & Bigarade. Sweet sweet smelling and I can’t decide which one I like the most.
Vichy is a brand that never really interested me. The prices are middle-range and I haven’t thought much about their products, but thanks to Helena Stenqvist at Mildh Press my opinion has changed completely. I am still using the Neovadiol Magistral moisturizer and I love it!
That’s it for today. I am extremely tired after an evening with the girls (read: lots of wine) and beauty seems very very far away….but after a good night’s sleep I will be back on track 🙂 Meanwhile: moisture up girls and boys for spring is a-coming!
