BEAUTY WEEK PART iiii

A very important thing when it comes to beauty is ones morning and nighttime beauty routine. My routines include the products below - it has been a looong process finding my favorites, however, I am pretty satisfied with my current beauty ensemble.

 

MORNING ROUTINE

Apparently, my morning routine consist exclusively of Avène products - I did not realize this until now... Anyway, here it goes: Each morning I wash my face with the soapless  Avène Cleanance gel while I am showering, as it makes my skin feel all clean and fresh, without making it seem dry. Two times a week I use an exfoliating scrub, currently this one, to rinse more thoroughly. After washing my face with the cleanance gel, I use this gentle toner from Avène to minimize my pores (or whatever. but it feels great...) and after that I use this eye-cream from Avène. I finish off with a daily mousturizing cream from Avène that includes SPF 20 - I am very aware of protecting my skin from the sun and I actually use a SPF 20 day cream all year and try to use as gentle products as possible. This is probably why I swear to Avène...

 

NIGHT ROUTINE

 Before I go to bed I rinse off my makeup - EVERY single night, as I have discovered that not removing my makeup makes my skin seem very dull, and it also somehow makes my hangover worse? Anyway, I use the micellar lotion from Avène to rinse off my eye - and face makeup. Afterwards, I rinse my face with the Avène Cleanance gel, rinse my face even more with the Avéne gentle toner and then I spoil myself with some splashes of the delicious rosewater facial mist from Jurlique. I have experienced that I do not really need to use a night creme, at least not during the summer months, so I just let the rosewater sit on my face for a while, and then I pad my face dry with a small face towel and finish off with the Avène eye cream. I use the Azulene Calming Mask from Mario Badescu one or two times a week when I feel like I need to spoil myself and add a spa-element to either my morning or night routine (mostly my night routine, as I am often short of time in the morning), usually after I have exfoliated my skin and it makes my skin feel babysoft and so refreshed!

BEAUTY WEEK PART iii

This is my last hair-post, I promise!! I just have to share this new very awesome dry shampoo from the French brand Klorane. It is the ONLY hair shampoo that I am using from now on. It does not make my hair all stiff and "powder-looking", and it does not make my scalp all itchy and sensitive like other dry shampoos tend to and it has a fresh and natural smell! If I really need to skip a hairwash or just need to add some extra volume to my hair, this is my go-to product! You can only buy it at the pharmacy and online here.

 

Okay, det her er min sidste hår-post - promise! Jeg bliver bare lige nødt til at dele denne virkelig skønne tørshampoo fra det franske mærke Klorane med jer. Det er den ENESTE tørshampoo jeg bruger fra nu af. Den får nemlig ikke mit hår til at blive helt stift, eller se helt "pudder-agtigt" ud, og den får gør ikke min hovedbund helt sensitiv og irritabel, som andre tørshampoo kan have tendens til. Derudover har den en skøn frisk og naturlig duft, hvilket er super vigtigt! Så hvis jeg bliver nødt til at skippe en hårvask, eller bare har lyst til lidt ekstra volumen i midt hår, så er dette altså mit go-to produkt! Man kan købe den på apoteket, eller online her.

BEAUTY WEEK PART ii

... and speaking of hair, I think I might need to get a haircut soon. It has been 10 months since I stopped by Salon Mono where the very talented hairdresser Signe cut my hair short. Maybe I should stop by them again with these to inspirational pictures of Dasha Zhukova and Charlotte Gainsburg? I like my hair to look natural and not too "cut" if you know what I mean? I think I am going to keep it in a midi-length (a little shorter than it is now) and maybe try and work some long bangs like these two beautiful ladies. 

 

... og nu hvor vi taler om hår, så tror jeg muligvis snart jeg bliver nødt til at blive klippet. Der er gået 10 måneder siden sidst, hvor jeg var forbi Salon Mono og få klippet mit hår kort af den dygtige Signe. Måske skulle jeg tage forbi Salon Mono igen, med disse to inspirations-billeder af Dasha Zhukova og Charlotte Gainsburg under armen? Jeg kan bedst lide at mit hår ikke ser for "stylet" eller "klippet" ud... Jeg tor jeg vil holde det i en medium længde (lidt kortere end det er nu) og måske prøve at kaste mig ud i noget langt pandehår af en slags, ligesom disse to smukke damer.

BEAUTY WEEK PART i

Hey! Since I have not posted anything yet this week, I am thinking that I will take the opportunity to make this week beauty week here on Rainbow Dash. As you know, this is not exactly a beauty blog, however, I am a huge sucker for beauty - and skin care products and my week is not complete if I do not have a weekly spa-session in my humble bathroom, so why not put some serious focus on the topic for once? 
First, I am going to start with my daily hair-routine. I really want to recommend these two products from the Japanese brand Shu Uemura. The blue one is an amazing cleansing oil shampoo and the yellow pastel one is an even more amazing conditioner. My hair is very flat and if I do not wash it every.single.day it looks extremely boring. However, after I have began using these two products my hair seems and feels fresher and more clean, so I have actually only been needing to wash my hair every other day since I started using them. I wash my hair twice (yes - you have to wash your hair twice, did you know that??!!) and afterwards I squeeze excessive water from my hair and use the conditioner, which I rinse out immediately. I have been using them for about two weeks now, and my hair (and scalp!!!) never felt better. PLUS I am back on the whole conditioner-thing again, which I think is really good for my hair!

 

Hey! Da jeg endnu ikke har postet på bloggen denne uge, tænkte jeg at det kunne være sjovt at gøre denne uge til beauty-week her på Rainbow Dash. Som I nok har bemærket er det ikke ligefrem en beauty blog, men jeg er en kæmpe sucker for skønheds - og hudpleje produkter, og min uge er ikke rigtig god uden en ugentlig spa-session på mit badeværelse, så hvorfor ikke tale lidt mere om emnet for en gangs skyld?  Jeg vil gerne starte med at fortælle lidt om min daglige hår-rutine. I den forbindelse vil jeg rigtig gerne anbefale disse to produkter fra det japanske brand Shu Uemura. Den blå er en fantastisk cleansing oil shampoo og den gule pastelfarvede er en endnu mere fantastisk balsam. Mit hår er mega flat og hvis jeg ikk vasker det hver.eneste.dag bliver det SÅÅÅ kedeligt at se på. Men efter jeg er begyndt at bruge disse to produkter føles mit hår meget mere rent og friskt i længere tid, så jeg er faktisk gået ned til kun at vaske det hver anden dag. Jeg vasker mit hår to gange (ja, man skal altså vaske håret TO gange, vist I det??!!) og efterfølgende presser jeg vandet ud af mit hår og putter balsam i, som jeg vasker ud med det samme. Jeg har brugt produkterne i omkring to uger nu og mit hår (og min hovedbund!!!) har aldrig føltes bedre. PLUS jeg er med på balsam-vognen igen, hvilket jeg tror mit hår elsker!
