Yes, yes, it’s the first week of advent already! We are all counting down to X-mas! Only four weeks until X-mas! Did you light up the first candle on Sunday? I went to a advent concert with Mache and I bought four candles from Lagerhaus to celebrate the first Sunday of advent. This is a Christian tradition from beginning to start counting down to X-mas. What did you do this weekend?
Counting down to X-mas
I can’t believe it’s almost December already! How are you counting down to X-mas? Is there any special prep you do? I start to feel the colder wind here in Stockholm, some snow and the warm temperatures indoor. This makes my skin a bit dry if I don’t take care of it. Especially the soft skin of my face needs some extra care. Lucrece is a brand that I have been using before and telling you about here. Do you remember? I still have good contact with Lucrece and I was very pleased to be able to keep using their products as being their ambassador. They offered me to try some new products as well. I had to show you, because this brand is an absolute keeper.
Since I have received some of the same products, I will trust you to go here to my first blogpost to read about them. Now, I will tell you all about the four newer products that I tried for the first time! I used them all for a couple of weeks.
To start with, the ‘vitamin C stem cell mask‘. Minimum once a week, you should wear a mask to take some extra care of your skin. This mask can be left unto the skin for the whole night or day or you can rinse it after 15 min. I love to sleep with a mask, so that I wake up with a healthy, hydrated and soft skin. You can wipe off some of the left overs, depending how much you use. Although you don’t need much because the mask is rich. The mask works great to keep your skin young thanks to the ingredients.
Then we have the lip plumping revitalizer. While I applied this on my lips, I feel the ingredients start to work. It’s a feeling of a cold sensation and my lips feel hydrated and plumped. It’s a small difference but it helps to get those full lips as a base for any lipstick or just to protect your lips against the cold weather or even sunny hot temperatures.
Next to the eye product that I am already using from this brand, I wanted to try the anti-wrinkle eye cream. I have some fine lines and they seem a bit filled after using this product for a couple of weeks. Apply it twice a day. The anti-wrinkle cream tightens the skin a bit, so the fine lines show less on me.
The next new product is the Collagen Peptide Complex. This is a product you use under your day or night cream and sun cream. This gives a little extra push for the maturing skin to stay young and full of collagen. This works a lot, so you don’t have to use it more often than once or twice a week, but you can use it every day too if you like. This is perfect for women like me who starts to see their first lines appearing, as well as for women that already have some fine lines.
The reason why I like to blog about these products, is because the features of the brand are great. One of the most important feature to me is that all the products are paraben-free! The package materials are recyclable or biodegradable as well. What I adore more is that there is no animal derived collagen or stem cells in the products (plant based). Three big plusses for me why I like to keep using Lucrèce.
