All About That Base

My friends always make fun of my skincare addiction. As much as I love clothes, there is something about shopping for new skincare products…My skin is sensitive & a bit dry and doesn’t respond well to certain products, so it needs special care. I always look for organic ingredients and avoid using damaging chemicals. After years of testing I have found a couple of favorite products! Jet lag? These products will make your outer beauty jet lag proof! It is all about that base…

All About that Base

1. Pai Camelia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser $ 39,-.
Includes an exfoliating muslin cloth. The products are all organic, without damaging artificial ingredients like perfume. Perfect for sensitive skin. I love the cloth!

2. Philosophy Hope in a Jar $15,- & Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash $15,-.
Hope in a Jar is a major dicovery, thanks to Oprah. It makes my skin extremely soft & I love the lavender scent. The wash is gentle. I use it twice a week. I’m a huge fan of Philosophy and the words added to the products. During the day I use the Amazing Grace perfume.

3. Kiehl’s Miraculous Night Recovery Eye $ 36,-.
What an ‘eye-opener’! This is, without a doubt, the best eye cream I have tested so far. During the night this miracle worker gives your eyes a mini lift. Bye bye puffiness & circles!

4. Estelle & Thild Biohydrate Thirst Relief Vitamin Serum $ 35,-.
Estelle & Thild is my most recent discovery. I bought this serum for the night, but it is so soft that I use it during the day too. All of the formulas are free from pesticides and toxic residues and are certified organic.

5. Vichy Pureté Thermale Cleansing Foam $10,-.
Pleasant & soft cleanser, that doesn’t dry out my skin. Affordable and it does the job a lot better than some expensive cleansers I have tried!

6. Bergman Crystal Cleansing Water $ 30,- & Skin Supplies Day Spf 15 $ 87,-.
This combination works for me. Not completely organic, but soft & effective for my skin & an spf!

7. Ren Omega 3 Optimum Serum $ 39,-.
Ren uses only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and is free from skin-unfriendly synthetic ingredients. I used this serum during the night and I am a fan!

8. Dr. van der Hoog Hypo Sensitive Night $ 18,-.
This Dutch skincare brand is affordable & perfect for my sensitive skin. It works better than some expensive product I used before. So when you’re visiting the Netherland, be sure to try this one! You can find the products in every drugstore.
