It was great to 'bump' into my new favourite cosmetics brand Face Stockholm again during Fenwick Beauty Week last month. Ever since I've been introduced to them this summer (post here) when they first launched in the UK, I started using their products and I haven't been dissapointed. As I mentioned before, simplicity and quality won me over.
So here are my two 'front-runners':
Icelandic Solution. This mosturising gel, which contains minimal ingredients, is simply genius. Extremely light, it tightens and calms your skin. At £140 it's obviously not cheap, but you only need a small amount and it can be used under your eyes, on your lips and as a base under foundation. Basically, it is lots of different products in one bottle. It is the most expencive moisturiser I have ever owned as I am rather sceptical of overly expencive creams and I do believe that price is not always an indicator of quality, but this one appears to be working and I just cannot believe how light it is.
The other new favourite product is BB Natural Beauty Balm. Similary to the moisturiser, it is very light. It can be used on its own for a natural looking coverage or as a primer under your foundation. I am not a fan of heavy foundations, so this balm is ideal. It comes in a handy compact box with a mirror, so it's perfect for when you are out and about. Moreover, it contains Vitamin E and it SPF 30.
