I’m doing the Olay 28 Day Challenge

Ever had a moment in the mirror? I had one the other day. I looked in the mirror the other day and thought ‘man, I’m getting old’. I’ll be 39 next year, awfully close to being 40…yikes! In order to get my skin back on track, I’m taking the Olay 28 Day Challenge. This is an easy-to-follow daily skincare routine comprised of the best Olay products that have been clinically proven to make skin look younger in 28 days.

Review: White Marble Bright Face Mask by Erno Laszlo #GlowBetter

Guess who’s back from another hiatus? This girl. Oops! It’s been a while since my last blog post. I’m going to try to do better! Life has been super hectic lately. Mostly good though. Mason is doing really well at school and our baby girl is now exactly 14 months. Yay! I stopped breastfeeding about a month ago and now my hormones have been all over the place. My skin hasn’t been at its best, so I’ve switched up my skincare routine. I’ve been using some new (to me) products, one of it being the White Marble Bright Face Mask...

The Oxygen Beauty Spa: my first impression

Yes, that is me! πŸ˜€ Laying in a luxurious spa, surrounded by millions of oxygenated micro bubbles. I’ve had some pretty hectic weeks lately, so this past weekend I decided to treat myself to a treatment in an Oxygen Beauty Spa. I’m sure you’re wondering what this is… Trust me, I did too! I’ll explain in this post. The Oxygen Beauty Spa is a self-contained and eco-friendly spa that you can place inside your home, in your backyard or on your patio. It does not need to be connected to your home’s drainage system. The spa is filled with regular...

FBE’s monthly beauty giveaway + throwback pics of our son’s first day of school

Last time I was here a few days ago and I mentioned that Mason (5) had started kindergarten (kleuterschool, in Dutch). I promised to post some pics of him on Instagram, but like with most of my promises recently…I didn’t keep it (sadly). I’ve actually been off social media for a while now and it’s kind of a ‘step’ to get back on… I have been checking Facebook once in a while, but that’s about it. Because I didn’t post these pics there, I decided to put them here instead. So here’s Mason posing and holding different objects on his...

Review: The best inexpensive face cream, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

The other day I mentioned my oily skin. As long as I can remember I have oily skin. My nose gets oily, my chin, cheeks…pretty much my entire face, except for the outer perimeter. That’s where it’s a little dry. I guess you could say I have combination/oily skin. Even with my skin type, hydration is always important. My skin produces oil throughout the day, however, I always make sure to moisturize in the morning. Olay contacted me a little while ago and told me about an independent test by the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) that showed that their Regenerist...

New favorite! Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser by GLAMGLOW

I have a new favorite, guys! A couple of weeks ago I ran out of facial cleanser and I happen to have a coupon for Parfumerie Douglas. So I went to the nearest Douglas store and asked the sales lady what she recommended for my oily skin. She couldn’t stop talking about the Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser by GLAMGLOW. She asked me if I was familiar with the brand, which I was (I love their facial masks) and had me try a sample in the store. I ended up purchasing the full-size bottle and I gotta say…I’m happy that I...

Why people with dark skin still need to wear sunscreen

It finally feels like summer here in The Netherlands and, of course, I’m taking full advantage of it. πŸ™‚ The other day I was last minute shopping for sunscreen. I went into a (never been before) drugstore and because I didn’t want to waste time looking around, I asked a sales associate where in the store I could find it. Before answering my question, she looked me up and down and I could almost hear her think: ‘why would she need sunscreen?’. That brings me to this post. Just because I have dark skin, that doesn’t mean I don’t need...
