Sukin Rose Hip Oil

Sukin Rose Hip Oil

I've spoken about the Sukin Rose Hip Oil in my Winter Beauty Essentials post, but this stuff is just too good not to dedicate it a post on it's own.

I have been using this oil for a few months now, and I love that it is not greasy at all but at the same time it's very moisturising. I have generally oily skin and this oil makes it less oily, doesn't make me break out and makes my skin look plumper and feel softer. 

As it has a 44.1% Linoleic Acid vs 13.9% Oleic Acid content, it's great for people with oily and acne prone skin. This particular brand is certified organic and preservative free, great if you are concerned about the provenance of your beauty products. 

At night I apply 2 drops (sometimes 3 if my skin is feeling a bit tight or dry after a face mask or peel) after spraying on some rose water to my face, which helps it absorb more easily, then apply my serum and night cream on top. I might use 1 drop during the day occasionally to add extra hydration. 

If you are looking for an extra moisture boost in your skincare routine that doesn't feel heavy on the skin, then I would definitely recommend the Sukin Rose Hip Oil.

Have you tried it?

Photowall Custom Canvas

Photowall Canvas

Last month I was contacted by the lovely people at Photowall to offer me a free product. Photowall is a Swedish brand that specialises in wall murals and canvas prints. They have a big selection of designs which you can use, or you can upload your own picture.

I uploaded my own picture, which is from our wedding day. I chose the smallest possible size of canvas for my picture (40 x 50 cm) as I didn't want a giant canvas that I wouldn't be able to find a space for, but the sizes range from 40 x 40 cm to 150 x 150 cm. You can order the canvas only or with a wooden frame (that you put together yourself) to hold your canvas. 

The wooden frame was easy to assemble following the instructions included in the package and the delivery was quite fast, considering it comes all the way from Sweden! The canvas is really good quality and would make a nice gift for a friend or family member.

Photowall was also generous enough to provide me with a 20% discount code for my readers: IHINCampaign2018. The code is available for 30 days only and it is live until the 15th of February.

Have you ordered something from Photowall?

A New Start

Succulent plant

Hello! Hope you had an amazing start of the year. I will try and make this year better after a bit of a meh one last year. I started by decluttering a bit (I'm far from done) but yeah I just want to have a tidy, calm environment that will help me have more peace of mind and be more creative.

Having a lot of stuff lying around (or in general) can be quite stressful as there are more things you are responsible for cleaning, washing, putting away, etc. Plus a clean, tidy space makes you feel more relaxed and you'll be able to focus your energy on things that matter and what you actually want to do, instead of constantly thinking about all of the cluttering material things, which can be very draining.

What about you? How has your year been so far?
