After a long week I took the day off and treated myself with and hour and a half of pure pleasure at DollFace. These ladies keep my brows in place, but today it was all about the Ling Signature Facial. A facial that has been on everyones lips. Time to spring clean my face.
First cleansing, then a skin analysis, a triple peel, a lot of steam, a deep cleanse followed by hydrator, face massage, two masks – first Oxygen & Multivitamin nourishment for dry and dehydrated skin to replenish, hydrate and fortify skin. Then Ginseng Therapy Moisture Mask formulated with Aloe Vera to soothe, Collagen to firm and Ginseng to tone. Last jade roller massage and Re-lite Eyegel that relieves puffiness and diminish the appearance of dark circles around the eye area. I left with visibly better skin – ultra clean and very hydrated. I rarely recommend facials as we all have different preferences, but this treatment will without a doubt be appreciated by everyone. So if you want to give your skin a treat – this is it.
Tomorrow I’m off to Paris for the weekend – croissant & vin blanc coming up. The picture is from my last trip there – make sure you keep up on Instagram here.
This treatment is one of Dr. Murad’s most sought after formulas – and I can see why. It infuses the delicate eye area with an exclusive surface-filling and firming technology that instantly lifts, firms and tightens to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The use of eye pads helps boost the penetration of the ingredients. I use this and follow with Ling’s ‘Gift of Lift’ (read more here) and then carry on with my normal skin care routine. The result is visibly younger looking skin in less the 30 minutes. My favourite quick fix at the moment.
These five beauty wonders are a mix of news, new to my routine and old favourites. April’s beauty selection:
Fig is my absolute favourite fragrance, so I’m spoiling myself with Korres ‘ Fig Body Butter’ and the juice scent of freshly cut figs every time I step out of the shower. Caudalíe ‘Eau De Beauté’ is a beauty enhancing mist that is a true staple in the kit of most of the makeup artists I work with, and it has been a favourite of mine for ages. Use before your moisturiser and anytime during the day for a little pick me up. This travel size fits perfectly into your handbag. New to my routine is Ling’s ‘Gift Of Lift’ – an instantly firming wrinkle gel that your wear under your day cream and makeup. We are already the best of friends. Apply a very small amount, otherwise a white residue might appear. I use hand cream a million times a day and I like them to be quite light and sink in fast – no sticky hands here please. Sard just launched this ultra light cream that has a delicate rhubarb fragrance – so fresh and still plenty of moisture for dry hands. Tromborg’s Lip Cure is the ultimate treatment for dry lips. I think I’m on my fifth container – this is one of the products I keep in stock at all times.
Spring has arrived in Copenhagen and my plan is to spend the rest of this weekend outside.
& Other Stories celebrate the warmer days with a new scented candle, named ‘La Belle Saison’. Bergamot, Acai, Geranium and Peach Flower notes, housed in a ceramic jar that has been carefully hand-dipped in a delightful light pink. Enjoy the sun.
’10’ is a limited edition collection celebrating 10 years of Cos. Focusing on creative pattern cutting, each garment is constructed from pieces that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, minimising waste material. This shirt dress in crisp cotton poplin can be worn with or without the belt, so leave it out if you are into more boxy shapes. Check out the rest of the collection of timeless classics here.
Add a pop of colours to your neutrals – it can be pale yellow or baby blue as I did here in my latest editorial. The perfect match if you ask me.

If you are a fan of natural skincare you have without a doubt tried Dr. Hauschka. It was some of the first skincare I bought when I was a teenager and I have used it on-off since then. Two products I’m a fan of is the Hydrating Cream Mask and the Lip Balm. The mask contains nourishing almond, avocado and jojoba oils, that hydrate, soothes and protects. Use it a couple of times a week as a mask that you remove after 20 minutes, sleep with it or wear a thin layer over your day cream for extra protection on cold days.
