Packing Series // The Skin Care

  Hi darlin’s!
Hope you’re having a great summer! As you may know, from the last two posts on packing, I’ve been camping. I got home 2 days ago and I survived with a lot of mosquito bites and some small break outs – Too many fries and ice creams! Wups.
I just arrived at my dad’s and looking forward to Thursday where I’m going home to myself and my little apartment – love being with my family, but also miss my apartment 🙂 
As you, by the title, already guessed, this is part 3 in my Packing Series. Today’s post is going to be about the skin care bits I packed. So let’s get going. 
As the other two posts – The Hair and The Body – are these inspired by Vivianna‘s Packing Series. 
For skin care she suggests packing a Cleanser, Toner, Serum, Moisturiser (AM/PM), Facial SPF and Eye Cream

To start this post of, I wanted to say that I’m not happy with my skin care routine and products just yet. Still trying some things out, but this is what I’m using at the moment. 

  One of the things in my skin care that I’m actually really happy with is my toner. This toner is the Biotherm Hydra-Mineral Lotion Toning Water. I love the way it feels on my skin and I kind of enjoy seeing all of the dirt and nasties on the cotton pad afterwards – is that weird? This bottle is a sample, but it’s the perfect travelling size. The large one comes with a pump – which I love! Love everything with pumps. So I just pump some products from the big bottle to the small bottle. 

But yeah, love this! 
My eye makeup remover is from Plaisir which I believe is Danish, can’t quite remember. I loved this at first, but know I’m kind of tired of it. It’s for waterproofed makeup as my eyeliner is waterproofed. It does what’s is suppose to, but it still leaves a at bit makeup – especially mascara – for the next day. This annoys me a bit and I want to try a new one out. 
Do you have any recommendations? Let me know in the comments or tweet me – @mlhauken.
The last thing, on this picture, is from The Body Shop. As I mentioned in my previous post, I did a The Body Shop Collection Part 1 on Lipgloss and Lashes.  Hop over and see some of my The Body Shop bits. 
This product is going to make an appearance in Part 2 which will be up on my blog. It is their Vitamin C Skin Boost for dull skin. 
I either apply this after moisturising or I use it as a primer before foundation/BB cream if I’m applying makeup later in the day. Love this and the scent is lovely too!
My last two products are my daily moisturiser and my eye cream. One of them I like the other not so much. 
Let’s start with the negative, so this post can end in a positive way.
I’m not the biggest fan of my Eye Cream From Nivea. It’s not that it is bad but it doesn’t do anything. I feel that I might as well not use it, cause I can’t tell the difference. I bought it as my friend loves it, and I thought why not. I’m the kind of person who really want to use the products up, and since it’s not doing anything bad for my skin I took it with me. 
So I need some recommendations on a new Eye Cream? Do you have one you love? Tell me in the comments or tweet me – @mlhauken
Lastly I really like my moisturiser. This one I have had for a month and a half or something and I really like it. It’s from Embryolisse and it is their Lait-Créme Concentré for all skin types. I like that it is a multipurpose product. I use it under my arms after shaving, I sometimes use it to remove makeup and of course as a moisturiser. 
So this was part 3, hope you liked it! Part 4,5 and 6 will be up in the next couple of days now that I have regular WIFI 😉

Remember to let me know if you have any recommendations on Cleanser, Eye Makeup Remover and Eye Cream 🙂 

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for reading
