Sheet Happens | July 2017 box

Sheet Happens July box

I have been having major problems with acne on my cheeks and jawline the last couple of months and I have been so frustrated because I don’t know why I’ve been having these skin issues. It’s extra frustrating because I never really suffered from acne when I was a teenager, so having skin issues when you’re an adult and supposed to be past that stage is very frustrating.

I think I have been able to pinpoint my acne to allergies and stress. I have noticed that hydrating and calming products help a lot so I have literally been dousing myself in facial moisturizers and aloe. When I want to give my skin that extra shot of hydration, I personally love to use a sheet mask. I really love me a good sheet mask so when I heard about the Sheet Happens subscription box, I was so excited!

It’s a monthly subscription box full of sheet masks that is available in Sweden and Europe. You’ll receive a box of 8-10 sheet masks every month from big Korean brands like Holika Holika and Dr. Jart + among others. They ship the boxes around the 25th of every month. I’m really obsessed with sheet masks as I love how my skin feels hydrated and plump after using them. I may have oily combination skin, but my skin feels best when it’s deeply hydrated, and that’s something I feel sheet masks are really good at. This is my first box from them so I can’t give you a overall review of the subscription box, but I’ll show you the masks I got in my July box and how I liked them.

COVER FX | CUSTOM COVER DROPS (REVIEW)

Cover FX Custom Cover Drops

The Cover FX Custom Cover Drops Foundation (44 dollars/495 kr for 0.5 oz./15 ml) is described as a innovative and revolutionary dropper bottle full of pure pigment that you can mix in with your favorite liquid beauty products to create your own tinted moisturizer or ideal foundation.

This product was a game changer when it launched a few years ago, and in many ways it still is. The idea behind these foundation drops is amazing and I knew I had to try it the second I heard about it. The idea that you can custom make your own tinted moisturizer using your favorite moisturizer is appealing to many of us. What appealed me the most was the fact that I could improve my different foundations by making them more full coverage. I’m a full coverage kind of girl and that thought appealed to me a lot.

Highlights and disappointments | June Edition

June favorites

I actually haven’t been using that many different products during this month of June. Most of the products that are a lot of the same products that I was loving in the month of May. There are however some new products (and even some old ones) that I’ve been loving a little extra lately.

Köpa Tarte, Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury i Sverige

Shoppa Tarte Dose of Colors Colorpop Charlotte Tilbury Becca Hourglass i Sverige

Som svensk beauty nörd kan det ibland vara svårt att få tag på utländska märken som är väldigt populära på youtube och andra beauty forum, men som inte säljs i Sverige. På senare år har det dock faktiskt kommit fler och fler kända märken till oss här i Sverige, men vi är fortfarande ett väldigt litet land och många skönhetsmärken prioriterar inte alltid den svenska marknaden eftersom skönhetsmarknaden här är relativt liten. Som tur är bor vi inom EU och kan därför utnyttja att länder som England, som har en större marknad, även levererar (ibland med gratis frakt!) till oss här i Sverige.

Som Stockholmsbo är det ibland lätt att glömma att inte alla har tillgång till samma utbud som vi har i de större städerna som Stockholm, Göteborg och Malmö. Själv är man ju såpass bortskämd att man har Åhlens, Sephora, Kicks och Kiko Milano på 10 minuters gångavstånd.

Låt oss kika på vilka hemsidor där man kan köpa kända märken som Tarte, Hourglass, Tom Ford och Charlotte Tilbury bl.a. och få det fraktat hem till Sverige
