Beauty favorites – january

Beauty favorites - january 2014

These are a few of my january beauty favorites:

1. Kiehl’s Hair Conditioner and Grooming Aid – Formula 133 – Great conditioner with hydrolyzed wheat protein, suitable for all hair types. It really moisturizes, leaving the hair very soft and manageable. I highly recommend!

2. Dermage Eyelash Power - I’m always searching for a product that will fill in the gaps in my eyebrows, so I was super excited when I saw this fortifying serum that helps eyelashes and eyebrows grow. After one month, my gaps are still there (so sad), but I can say that the rest of the hair is more elongated and thick.

3. SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF - I can’t live without serum guys! This one is antioxidant and has a molecular combination that protects the cells from external aggression and strengthens the skin structure. It has a high concentration of vitamin C (some people find it a bit too strong) and makes my skin super luminous.

4. La Roche-Posay Anthelios AC – 30 SPF - In the scorching sun here in Rio, we can only survive with tons of sunscreen. I’ve been experimenting with several of them and I really liked this one. It’s fast-absorbing and has a non-greasy texture that I love. Perfect for oily or acne prone skins.

Which beauty products were your favorites this month?




A beautiful and fun collaboration between photographer Marion Luttenberger and her friend Briony for Vancouver based company Goodforks. The focus of this series is on the authenticity and transparency of markets while believing that good food has the power to change the economic viability of communities. Very nice!
