💦Essences💦 . “What is an essence? And do I need one?” Two of the most reoccurring questions I get from you guys, and people in general when discussing skincare. Essences became popular in the West with the wave of Asian beauty, and now most skincare brands offer some kind of essence. So what is an essence? It’s something of a hybrid between a toner and a serum. It’s texture can be watery, sometimes viscous and even milky like a thin lotion. Actually essences are called lotions in Japan. And to make things easier, in Japan serums are called essences 🤷🏼‍♂️ Essences add extra hydration to the skin and also preps the skin so it can easily absorb following products. It’s also a way of adding actives targeting a specific concern and customising your routine even more. . So do you need one? Are you lazy and don’t want another step added to your routine. Or is it the end of the month and you have to prioritise a glass of wine, then no you don’t need an essence. However, if you enjoy pampering your skin, adding plenty of hydrating or if you want that extra step to customise your routine, then yes you do need to add an essence. . Which is your favourite essence? ✍🏼⬇️ . #skinregimen microalgae essence, hydrating and energising with algae extract #sisley sisleÿa essential skin care lotion, moisturising, strengthening and age-prevention #cliniccare X3M EGF glow essence, hydrating and brightening #huxley secret of Sahara oil essence, mix of facial oil and essence, hydrating and nourishing #benton snail bee high content essence, my first essence, repairing and hydrating . . . . . #essence #skincaretips #hudvård #kbeauty #hydration #skincare #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincarecommunity #abcommunity #glow #sisleyparis #skincareproducts #hydratedskin #healthyskin #topshelf #shelfie at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

🧖🏼‍♂️Friday facial🧖🏼‍♀️ . Is there a better way to start the weekend than with a really good facial? No, I don’t think so. And I did just that a couple of weeks ago. I was treated with the new Biologique Recherche VIP o2 booster facial at Revivekliniken. Revivekliniken is the distributor of BR in Sweden and the go to place in Stockholm if you want glowing healthy skin and to be seriously pampered at the same time! The new VIP o2 booster facial is the latest addition to the VIP o2 family and contains the brand’s famous oxygenating complex. Like the rest of the series, it works anti-pollution, detoxifies the skin, and stimulates the dermis. The result is radiant, glowing and healthy looking skin! 💫 . Just like any BR facial your skin is cleansed with one of their ‘laits’ (cleansing milks) using a massaging glove. For this specific facial they used the VIP o2 version followed up by the iconic P50 lotion to purify, exfoliate and balance the skin. Afterwards your skin is ready for the highlight of the facial – the VIP o2 booster. The product fizzes when it comes out of the bottle and is applied together with a facial massage. Starting with one half of the face, the booster is followed up by the VIP o2 masque. Once your face is covered you receive this amazing massage with BR cryo-sticks 🥶 The cooling massage will reduce redness, minimize inflammation and smooth your facial contours. Once the treatment was over I walked out with the most amazingly radiant and glowing skin that lasted for days 😍✨ . Do you go for facials regularly? ✍🏼⬇️ . . . . . #facial #biologiquerecherche #revivekliniken #luxuryskincare #facemask #pampered #frenchskincare #frenchbeauty #glow #glowup #hudvård #skincare #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #facialfriday #skönhet #skincarecommunity #abcommunity #instabeauty at Revivekliniken

💐AM routine💐 . It’s a Sisley morning 🥰 I woke up early and had time for a coup of turmeric tea and a full on Sisley routine. Focus is age-prevention and a bright, healthy complexion. Several of the products contain botanical strengthening and age-preventing ingredients such as padina pavonica (algae), phytosqualane, white willow extract as well as several sources of antioxidants. . Starting by sloughing off dead skin cells and particles and waking up the skin with the buff and wash facial gel ✨ Since there was plenty of time to mask, I turned to my favourite brightening and purifying mask. Phyto-blanc is a gentle and moisturising brightening mask that that leaves the complexion even and radiant. The floral toner hydrates, soothes and prepares the skin for the rest of the routine 🌸 I only have a travel size but I would definitely consider buying the full size. Using the Sisleÿa lotion as an essence, it moisturises and strengthens the dermis as well as working replumping and age-preventing. I follow up with this routine’s powerhouse, the Sisleÿa l’intégral anti-âge serum. This serum works twofold; it awakens the skin’s firming potential and then re-tensions the skin ⚡️ I haven’t used the serum long enough to see any results, but I will continue using it regularly. The Sisleÿa eye cream has saved the skin around my eyes this winter, highly moisturising you can immediately see results with faded fines lines, diminished dark circles and more rested look 👀 The black rose oil is perfect for this kind of cold winter weather; a nourishing and strengthening dry oil with age-preventing properties that keeps my skin moisturised all day without leaving any shine. Finishing off with my favourite moisturiser, the black rose cream 🌹 With it’s silky texture and subtle rose scent it hydrates and provides a ton of antioxidants leaving the skin plumped and radiant 💫 . 🌟Buff and wash facial gel 🌟Phyto-blanc ultra lightening mask 🌟Floral toning lotion 🌟Sisleÿa essential skin care lotion 🌟Sisleÿa l'intégral anti-age firming concentrated serum 🌟Sisleÿa l'intégral anti-age eye contour cream 🌟Black rose precious face oil 🌟Black rose skin infusion cream at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

👺Sunday masking👺 . The hassle of using a sheet mask when you’re bearded, it pulls and lifts and you keep having to pat it down. However, I still enjoy using them, the effect and that it’s a moment to lie down and relax 😴 . Clinic care is Swedish skincare produced in South Korea, all products contain low molecular hyaluronic acid that’s able to penetrate to deeper levels of the skin 👌🏼 Regular hyaluronic acid has quite large molecules that aren’t able to penetrate deep into the skin but just sit there on top. . The EGF glow mask is a soothing and rejuvenating mask that works on hyperpigmentation. While it’s usually difficult to see immediate anti-pigmentation results the mask felt incredibly hydrating on a deep level leaving my skin glowing. There was none of that sticky feeling on top of the skin. However, there was a lot of essence left in the pouch and according to Clinic care you can reuse the mask 1-2 times! Just seal it with some paper clips and put it in the fridge 🙏🏼✨ . How are you Sunday masking today? ✍🏼⬇️ . #cliniccare EGF GLOW mask 💫 . . . . . #sheetmask #masking #facemask #hydration #mask #menwhomask #hudvård #skönhet #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincare #malebeauty #mensskincare #abcommunity #skincaretips #selfcaresunday at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

👨🏼‍🔬Customised masking👨🏼‍🔬 . There are times when you can’t find the perfect mask for the occasion. And believe me I’ve had those difficult moments. Luckily with Biologique Recherche products you can easily concoct just the mask you were looking for. Masque VIP o2 is an anti-pollution masks that restores glow and a healthy complexion ✨ It also contains BR’s oxygenating complex that enhances cell regeneration and revitalises the skin. It’s also gentle enough to be used under the eyes to reduce dark circles. For some extra serious glow and brightening I’ve added a few drops of sérum oligo-protéines marines with algae and malachite extract. I also mixed some hydrating masque visolastine+ into the mix for extra plumping and skin barrier repairing effects 🙏🏼 . . . . . #biologiquerecherche #masking #frenchbeauty #luxuryskincare #skincaretips #facemask #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #hudvård #skönhet #glow #glowup #skincarecommunity #abcommunity at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

💙Texture Tuesday💙 . Finally Sunday Riley is launching in Sweden! I’ve been curious to try this brand for some time now so I was super excited when I got a bottle of their cult favourite Luna retinol oil in my hands. This oil works while you sleep, replumping you skin, improving the overall complexion and reducing lines and damaged skin by increasing collagen production. It’s also hydrating and contains calming ingredients such as blue tansy and chamomile. And no it won’t discolour you face or pillow 👌🏼✨ .

🥶Winter skincare🥶 . Meet the winter heroes! 🦸🏼‍♀️🦸🏻‍♂️ Just when I thought spring finally had reached Stockholm I woke up to snow and degrees below zero. Winters in Stockholm tend to be windy and cold with dry air, which is why you have to adapt your skincare regime accordingly. In harsh conditions you have to be kind to your skin, moisturise and strengthen the skin barrier ☃️ . First of all I switch to gentle cleansing using only oils, balms and cleansing milk. Secondly, I use treatments that focus on strengthening the skin barrier. I also add lots of moisturising face oils and overnight treatments. .

🧬Texture Tuesday🧬 . One empty and one untouched version of my new favourite - crème masque vernix. This little nugget has healed and restored my skin on numerous occasions. It’s THE product I turn to when I’ve over-exfoliated, when the temperature has dropped or when I feel my skin needs some extra TLC. By mimicking the vernix of a newborn this versatile product heals and strengthens the skin barrier. Lipids, proteins and antioxidant peptides repair and hydrate the epidermis giving it a second birth. It can be used daytime as a cream mask when it’s cold outside or if you’re flying, but mostly I use it as a healing over-night mask. . #biologiquerecherche crème masque vernix . . . . . #hudvård #texturetuesday #frenchbeauty #br #skincaretips #luxuryskincare #facemask #healthyskin #hydratedskin #glowingskin #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #abcommunity #skincarecommunity #menwhomask at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

🍒Sunday triple masking🍒 . Let me introduce my Sunday crew! Some gentle exfoliation to start off with. Since I use Biologique Recherche P50 PIGM 400 every morning I don’t want to use anything too strong to upset the skin or compromise the skin barrier. Unblocking pores, removing dead skin cells and accelerating skin renewal, Verso’s ezyme peel is gentle enough to do the trick but still very potent. Followed by a purifying, detoxifying and brightening mask from Biologique Recherche to revitalise the skin. And finally treat your skin with a hydrating mask for a fresh and rested look. Sisley express flower mask is like giving your skin a tall glass of water. . Are you Sunday masking today?

🧖🏼‍♂️Learn to love the mud mask🧖🏼‍♂️ . One year and 161 posts have passed since I started this account so I thought it was time to return to where it all started - the mud mask. For many people this is the quintessential face mask, and probably the most photographed and instagrammed type of mask. The first thing that comes to mind is a pore minimising and deep cleansing type of mask that back in the days also used to be quite drying for the skin. However, there are several types of mud masks and a mask for each concern. Some are moisturising, while others are brightening and exfoliating. Here’s a selection of my favourite mud masks currently in use 🙏🏼✨ . #sisley photo-blanc ultra lightening mask, a deep cleansing mask with brightening vitamin C and white mulberry extracts . #nealsyard reviving white tea face mask, gentle detoxing and nurturing clay mask with antioxidant-rich white tea . #theorganicpharmacy purifying seaweed clay mask, a classic deep cleansing mud mask with calming seaweed and antioxidants . #dermaceutic mask 15, a potent exfoliating acid clay mask with 15% glycolic acid and 2% salicylic acid that burns good . #sisleyparis radiant glow express mask, an express mask with red clay for quick deep cleaning and immediate glow . #biologiquerecherche masque visolastine+, moisturising and skin strengthening mask with fatty acids and vitamin E . #evelom rescue mask, a deep cleansing and calming clay mask that’s also gently exfoliating .

☁️Comforting face mask☁️ . A new #Sisley mask to my collection, the linden blossom mask is especially made for sensitive skin - making it perfect for this time of the year with cold harsh weather 💞 Soothing and cocooning for your skin it’s great when you’ve accidentally over-exfoliated 🙋🏼‍♂️ Linden blossom extract soothes the skin, while non-drying clay gently deep cleanses. The result is smooth and radiant skin with even complexion 💫 .

🎠Sunday triple masking🎠 . Exfoliate, deep cleanse, hydrate! 🙏🏼 All good things come in three, also when you’re masking and this is how I usually do my Sunday masking routine. Exfoliation to rid the skin of dirt and particles so the following treatments can work to their fullest. A deep cleanse for a healthy and glowing skin, today also with some brightening vitamin C and white mulberry extracts. And to finish it off a thick moisturising, plumping and nourishing mask with peptides to boost collagen and elastin production 👌🏼✨ .

🌿Organic Face Masks🌿 . Two new favourite face masks that are not only organic but also deliver amazing results! 👌🏼✨ One gentle deep cleansing and detoxifying face masks full of antioxidants from white tea. And the other is a plumping and firming mask (needed now that I turned 35+). These two are perfect paired together! Usually when I’ve used a cleansing clay mask I apply a moisturising mask afterwards. Clay masks are in their nature also drying so it’s important to add lots of hydration and moisture afterwards. . #nealsyard reviving white tea face mask, gentle detoxing and nurturing clay mask with antioxidant-rich white tea 🍵 #patyka intensive moisturising mask, plumping and firming face mask with shea butter and peptides that boost collagen and elastin production ✨ . . . . . #organicskincare #facemask #masking #mask #facial #skincaretips #skincareproducts #abcommunity #skincarecommunity #menwhomask #glow #glowup #skincare #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #hudvård #skönhet #cleanskin #healthyskin at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

🌨Sunday masking🌨 . Sundays are for staying in, reading, drinking coffee and masking. My three favourite activities 👌🏼 Since I started using Biologique Recherche P50 regularly I’ve been careful not to use too much other exfoliating products at the same time. However, I haven’t exfoliated since Friday morning so I though I’d go big and use mask 15 ✨ If you exfoliate your skin regularly, with serums or toners, it’s important to keep track of what your other products contain so to not over-exfoliate the skin ☝🏼 It’s especially important during winter, you don’t want to compromise your skin barrier when the weather is harsh. . Are you Sunday masking? ✍🏼⬇️ . #dermaceutic mask 15, a potent acid clay mask with 15% glycolic acid and 2% salicylic acid that burns good 🔥 . #klairs midnight blue calming sheet mask, a soothing and calming mask that at the same time reduces the size of the pores 🌙 . #lamer intensive revitalizing mask is full of La Mer’s miracle broth (fermented algae) plumping your skin and adding lots of hydration and antioxidants that protects the skin against environmental stress and pollution 🐙 . . . . . #selfcaresunday #menwhomask #masking #facemask #mask #skincareroutine #skincaretips #hudvård #sheetmask #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #cosmeceutical #healthyskin #skönhet #mensskincare #skincare #skincarecommunity #exfoliate at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

🛢Facial oil🛢 . Having combination skin I never thought I would come to love using facial oils but it has become one of my favourite products, especially this time of the year ☃️ Face oils are great at protecting and nourishing the skin. Their moisturising properties will give your skin a natural and almost immediate glow ✨ Which is why facial oils are perfect for mature skin that tends to be more dry and therefore appears dull. Facial oils not only seal moisture in, they also act as a barrier and keep harmful pollutants out 👌🏼 Everyone can use face oils regardless of your skin type, even if you have oily skin you can benefit from a dry oil. Just keep in mind to stay away from comedogenic products and maybe use oils only in your PM routine 🌙 Now during winter I actually use oils both in my PM and AM routine; however, I find it to be a bit too much during summer to use oils at daytime. . #theordinary “B” oil, is a lovely oil blend (rosehip, argan and marula amongst others) infused with micro-algae that makes it a soothing and strengthening oil full of nutrition and antioxidants. #esteelauder advanced night repair mask-in-oil, a facial oil that's also a night mask! It strengthens and rebuilds the skin and supports the skin’s natural recovery process, making your skin looking more radiant and healthy in the morning. #esse protect oil, a protecting and nourishing facial oil with ximenia oil that increases blood flow, delivering both oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Due to its unusually long fatty acids it shields and protects the skin. #caudalie overnight recovery oil is a dry oil made out of 6 natural and active oils, including grape seed oil, that strengthens and repairs the skin barrier while you sleep. #marinamiracle active face oil, a balancing and soothing facial oil with olive leaf extracts full of antioxidants. Jojoba and avocado oils soothes and hydrates the skin. It’s also got a mild and nice scent of patchouli. . . . . . #faceoil #botanicalskincare #skincaretips #skincareproducts #oils #facialoil #mensskincare #winterskincare #glow #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #abcommunity #skincarecommunity #hydratedskin #healthyskin #esseskincare #mycaudalie at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

☃️Sunday masking☃️ . With temperatures around -10C I want to focus on strengthening my skin barrier and add lots of hydration ❄️ First some gentle exfoliation from Sisley, to slough off dead skin cells and impurities, preparing your skin for following treatments. Followed up by a hydrating and moisturising mask from Biologique Recherche. This mask is like a comforting cocoon for your face, fatty acids and vitamin E boost and strengthen the skin’s protective barrier and prevent dehydration. And as a final step a comforting cream over-night mask with pro- and prebiotics to strengthen the skin 🦠 Esse’s mask also contains hyaluronic acid and kigelia that increases collagen production and brightens the skin 👌🏼✨ . #sisley gentle facial buffing cream #biologiquerecherche masque visolastine+ #esse cream mask . . . . . #selfcaresunday #masking #facemask #menwhomask #mensskincare #skincareaddict #frenchbeauty #hudvård #skönhet #healthyskin #hydration #skincaretips #skincareroutine #skincare #luxuryskincare #cleanskin #mysisleyparis at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden

🤡Multi-masking🤡 . Different areas of your face have very different needs. Which makes it difficult to find one mask that suits all the various needs of your face. Luckily there’s an easy solution (that’s also time saving) - multi-masking. For example apply a deep cleansing detoxing mask to your t-zone to balance the face, and a moisturising mask to your cheeks and areas that tend to be more dry. Got problem with hyperpigmentation, then target that specific area with a suitable mask. The possibilities are endless 👌🏼✨ . #biologiquerecherche masque vivant Biologique Recherche masque visolastine+ . . . . . #facemask #masking #menwhomask #skincaretips #mask #maskformasc #cleanskincare #healthyskin #glowingskin #skincare #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #frenchskincare #multimasking #hudvård #skönhet #abcommunity #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine at Norrmalm, Stockholms Län, Sweden
