Emma S Skincare

Emma S Skincare
This morning I went to the launch of Emma S Skincare – a Swedish skincare brand created by the former model Emma Wiklund that you might remember from the iconic George Michael ‘Too Funky’ video (she’s the one wearing the amazing motorcycle corset and the robot costume), starring alongside Linda Evangelista, Eva Herzigova and Tyra Banks. She has graced the covers of magazines like Vouge and Elle and did shows for Chanel, Dior, Thierry Mugler and many more. Over the years she developed an interest in beauty products and after moving back to Sweden, she founded Emma S Skincare together with Nora Larssen in 2009. The line of skincare has just launched in Denmark and you can find it exclusively in Magasin and on Magasin.dk. The products are developed and produced in collaboration with some of Sweden’s best laboratories and most experience manufacturers. They are all based on safe and well-documented ingredients and all formulas are clinically tested. The stylish packing is hygienic (no jars – only pumps) and travel friendly and the products are free from parabens, mineral oils, micro plastics and cyclic silicones.

After meeting Emma I can’t wait to try her products and the first ones I’m giving a go is this treatment duo. First the Enzyme Peel that Emma recommends using one minute once a week. In a single minute it will remove dead skin cells, dissolve blackheads and give your skin a fresh glow and an improved moisture balance. Follow with the Overnight Repair Mask – I do love a product that does the job while I’m sleeping – it saves med time and my skin is nourished all night long. It prevents visible signs of daily stress, it tightens and leaves your skin moisturised and looking more relaxed and soft. You can use the mask 2-3 times a week or if your skin really needs a treat – give it a boost my using the mask every night for a week. Another favourite sleep mask is Wake Wonderful but tonight I’ll be wearing Emma S Skincare. Read more about the range of products here.

Apot.care Tailor-made Skin Care Solution

Apot.care Tailor-made Skin Care Solution Serum
Apot.care is the new generation of French beauty – inspired by traditional French apothecary. We all love a trip to a French pharmacy and some of the products I started buying on my trips to Paris a decade ago, have become staples in my beauty wardrobe. I cleanse my skin with Bioderma Solution Micellaire every morning and night, love waking up with a spritz of Eau De Beauté from Caudalíe and I never run out of Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré.
Apot.care was created by Antoine Le Galloudec and every single product is formulated in Paris and produced in Normandy by a team of experts. They source high quality ingredients and avoid anything that may cause irritation to the skin. Apot.care are committed to the environment and are using 100% recycled paper and minimum paper quantity for their boxes, they are a cruelty free brand and are PETA certified.
Because everyone’s skin is different Apot.care has designed a collection of 10 pure serums to meet your skins needs. You can create a bespoke serum trio and mix these three to give your skin exactly what it needs, when it needs it. On their website you can take a quick test – a skin diagnose which will help you identify your main skin concerns. My test showed a need for Hyaluronic Pure Serum that combines 3 types of hyaluronic acids to work on the different layers of the skin. My second serum is the DMAE Pure Serum that offers powerful anti-ageing properties that helps to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The third serum, pictured above, is COQ10 Pure Serum, that enhances your skin’s ability to energise and repair itself for firmer, more youthful looking skin. It contains co-enzyme Q10 – a vitamin-like substance that possesses powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to protect skin from free radicals. My birthday is coming up and the thought of turning 40 is not that easy, so I’m hoping that my Apot.care Tailor-made Skin Care Solution can make my skin look its best.

October Essentials

October Essentials - Fall Shopping Nouvelle
The weather makes me want to stock up on comfy staples. October essentials include warming wool, heavy suede and cosy cashmere. The most elegant rain coat ever made would look almost spring fresh with a warm yellow sweater. Before the weather cools down even more – make sure you wear your ballerina flats – the Jil Sander ones are on my wish list. Find more warm shopping here.

Vase Diffuser

Vase Diffuser by Skandinavisk
Skandinavisk recently launched a selection of beautiful vase diffusers. Mouth-blown glass vases with a perfume and natural alcohol blend that comes with three thick rattan reeds. You can use all three reeds og just one that will make the diffuser more minimal. Pour your desired amount of liquid into the vase, place the reeds in the liquid and rotate them weekly to fill the room with fragrance. When you have used up the scented liquid you can reuse as a flower vase. I chose the fragrance Heia for my vase diffuser, a scent inspired by remote wilderness. The rough, exposed terrain in the higher altitude fells of Norway and Sweden – a home to hardy shrubs, wild herbs and berries and fragrant hills of heather. A scent of thyme, heather bearberry and leaf sap. Read more about the vase diffuser here and if you are in Copenhagen, make sure you stop by the Skandinavisk pop-up shop in Magasin – they will be there until Sunday this week. They also have these cute perfume oils that are super easy to carry with you and super easy to apply.

Glossier Cloud Paint

Glossier Cloud Paint cream blush
Glossier Cloud Paint is a light gel-cream blush designed to be user friendly and I must say as a person being afraid of cream blushes (as I tend to look like a clown every time I try them), this is something else. You simply dab a tiny dot onto your cheeks and blend into skin. Since it’s super sheer it goes on seamlessly and leaves your cheeks looking fresh and healthy. The formula has blurring powder pigments that provide a soft, diffused finish – aka no streaks. Glossier Cloud Paint comes in six shades and at the moment I’m a fan of Dusk – a brownish nude that is almost invisible but just leaves you looking more awake. As you all know by now – Glossier finally ship their pretty products to Denmark – you can see all the shades and shop Glossier Cloud Paint here.
