The Oxygen Beauty Spa: my first impression

Yes, that is me! ๐Ÿ˜€ 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...

FreeBeautyEvents giveaway: total prize package worth $95

I’m back in the US! I’ve been back for almost a week actually, but the jet lag has been real.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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...

IT’s on! IT Cosmetics is QVC Todayโ€™s Special Value #ByeByeBreakthroughs

As you know I love IT Cosmetics. Over the years this brand has become a staple in my makeup collection.

Sephora’s Spring Bonus Insider Shopping Event has started!

I’m alive, guys! I’ve been missing over here, because (mom)life kinda took over… We’re currently staying at my family in The Netherlands and I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and family. Also, my little one was sick for a while. There just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! I have been active on my Instagram (@Kizzyonline), but I haven’t gotten around to update the blog. Anyway, I’m here now. You probably know this already, but I feel like it would be wrong for me to not mention it: Sephora’s Spring Bonus Sale has started! ๐Ÿ˜€ The...
