Dec 5: What to get for…

A few tips if you’re wondering what to get for mom, or for another special lady in your life. Offer a heavenly blend of tea and some beautiful cups. White tea “Avec les Anges” from Tea for Two. Cups are second hand. Pamper her with a Korres face cream or a luxurious wool and silk throw from Coco-Mat. Or get her a book to read during the holidays. Another idea that can’t fail is a homemade hamper: gather some of her favourite goodies from the bio shop. Or offer a Gift Card: a good present can also be a service – offer to baby-sit, cook a three course meal, give a massage or offer to clean the house. Advertisements

wild rose beauty

After the Korres Brussels store opening I was eager to test the Wild Rose skin care products, which I received as a gift at the opening. As the weather is getting colder and the winter winds are blowing, it’s important to make sure that my skin is well moisturized and nourished. My skin tends to get more dry in the winter months and I usually look for a more rich face cream for this period. The Wild Rose 24-h moisturising cream feels wonderful on the skin, it absorbs easily and keeps the skin feeling soft and radiant for the whole day. I’m looking forward to see the long-term effect as already after two days my skin feels ready to battle the winter cold 🙂 The Wild Rose and Vitamin-C dark spot correcting treatment promises to prevent and remove all types of dark spots. Even if I don’t often suffer from dark spots, I’m going to use this treatment on the T-zone to make sure they stay away. The Wild Rose eye cream promises to moisturise …

Welcome to Brussels, Korres!

Last Thursday I joined the opening celebrations of the Brussels Flag Ship store for the Greek natural cosmetics brand Korres. The story of the brand, whose innovative and stylish packaging has won design awards and whose product range now offers make-up, skin care, hair products and fragrances, started when George Korres joined his pharmacological expertise with the homeopathic tradition of Greece’s first homeopathic pharmacy, The Tzivanides, to introduce a natural skin care line. I remember how I first got to know this brand, when I found a small selection of the it’s products in a pharmacy in Cyprus about 5-6 years ago. I had read about Korres before, but the products were difficult to come by back then in Finland. Over the years I have discovered a few pharmacies and retailers stocking my favourite face wash and shower gel wherever I lived, but now I’m happy that I can just walk into this amazing store and experience the world of Korres to the full. The store is located on one of the little charming side streets …

skin focus

A few people have asked me how I take care of my skin and I thought that today would be the perfect day to share my skin rituals and beauty tips. I believe that the key to the perfect skin cannot not be found only in expensive creams and lotions but most importantly in the way we eat, sleep and love our body. I prefer natural cosmetics and often my beauty shopping is done at the bio shop. I have a few favourite skin care products including: – Washing: Korres white tea fluid gel cleanser. – Eyes: Clarins Eye revive beauty flash for day and Clarins Eye contour balm for night. – Moisturising: Both my day and night creams are from Lift Argan bio cosmetic line. I try to treat myself to a little facial treatment at home once a week. A quick tip for a scrub: mix half a teaspoon of organic coffee, half a teaspoon of organic brown sugar and a bit of moisturizer.  For deep cleansing I use green clay and to revitalize …
