It was only a matter of time until & Other Stories decided to add fragrances to their growing beauty range. The four fragrances have been made in collaboration with perfumer Jérôme Epinette who’s also the nose behind some of BYREDO’s most iconic fragrances, and trust me, they don’t disappoint. I especially love Morrocan Tea with its notes of lemon, spearmint, cardamom, sandalwood, musk and cedarwood, and did I mention that the fragrances are not only good smelling but also very good-looking. See for yourself at Stories.com.

 

BEAUTY FAVOURITE

I recently started using the Mineral Pressed Powder from Tromborg, and it didn’t take long for it to become a go-to favourite in my beauty bag. I mainly use it around the nose and at the nosetip, between my brows and on my chin to even out the skin tone and to avoid getting shiny. Apply it with a larger brush for a natural and soft result. I use the Eye Shader Brush by Bobbi Brown but I’m actually not sure if it’s available anymore as i could only find it on Ebay. However, I’m certain that both Bobbi Brown and MAC have perfectly good alternatives. Like this one, or this one.

CLEANSING ROUTINE

cleansing

 After all the recent hype I decided to give the sponges from The Konjac Sponge Co. a try – and it didn’t take me long to get addicted to the calming, softening and mild exfoliation effect the sponges offer the skin. For both face and body I went for the French Pink Clay sponges, which are perfect to refresh a sensitive skin as the clay repairs and improves circulation. You won’t see the changes to your skin overnight, but give it a few weeks and those annoying clogged pores will definitely improve making your skin appear more even and fresh faced.

It’s actually not necessary to use any cleansing products with the sponges but I prefer to – and after all adding some will only make the sponges work deeper. I was recently introduced to Mádara and have been using the Purifying Foam am and pm for the past few weeks now and I love it for being mild, effective, and organic. I massage it into damp skin before I bring the sponge into action and lastly rinse with warm water.

TREAT YOUR FEET

margaret dabbsEven though summer is coming to an end there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t keep your feet in good shape. Being hid away in socks and boots is no excuse and this is hands down the best foot lotion I’ve tried (and trust me, I’ve tried quite a few). I use it both morning and evening and it hydrates without making the skin greasy, which I find is often the problem with footcare products. It contains Emu oil, which not only is anti-bacterial but also known for its healing and regenerating qualities.

And pregnant or not, there’s nothing like a relaxing foot massage after a long day…

Get it here.

VELVET ORCHID

There’s something about Tom Ford.  It’s sexy, glamorous, mysterious and completely irresistible so when I stopped by the presentation of what’s new in the world of Tom Ford Beauty the other day, I wasn’t surprised to find myself lusting after everything, from the makeup collection to the signature fragrances and  private blend perfumes. Even the sparkling water and canapés that I was being served somehow felt sexy.

Velvet Orchid, the latest signature fragrance by Tom Ford, is as seductive as it appears with notes from petals, honey and rum that create a warm and oriental floral fragrance with a touch of freshness. Perfect for those wintery nights (and days) to come.
