Keep It Fresh – Goodiebox Review  

Keep It Fresh – Goodiebox Review  

 

Today we are looking at the “Keep It Fresh” goodiebox.

It was made after the new year with the thought that it was dark and the winter would never end. That does not mean we will succumb to the darkness (and cold), instead this box was a “Light in the dark” with products to light up your face and refresh your mind.

 

Ivy Aia – Cleansing Mousse with Vitamin B3

This cleansing mousse is just like magic. When in the flask, it is only a transparent fluid and very watery, but as soon as you pump if out it becomes a mousse.

It is made fantastically without perfume or any other weird ingredients, and smells of absolutely nothing. It is amazing to know that it has been made as carefully as it has.

It cleans my face just fine without drying out my skin, and is overall a good and mild cleansing mousse.

150ml (5oz) costs about 50DKK (6.7Euro) which is actually pretty cheap.

Rodial – Vit C Brightening Mask

This mask is said to be exfoliating, even skin tone and resurface the complexion.

I have had good experience before with their “dragons blood cleansing water” and use it daily, so I was excited to see and feel their other products.

The mask itself smells a little citrusy, and contains a lot of acids (which means it is a strong mask), so be careful if you have irritated skin or injuries.

It has a very thin formula, and is almost a little gel like, but feels like it “dries” into the skin and therefore feels tight.

My skin also felt a little tighter afterwards and my skin looked brighter.

50ml (1.7oz) costs 645DKK (86Euro) but it will go a long way since only a small amount is needed.

You can get it here

Youth Lab. – CC Complete Cream SPF 30

The first thing I noticed was the faint smell of paint. It does not smell bad or strong, but I thought it was a little funny, and it made me wonder what it was made of.

It has been dermatologically tested, and should be paraben & gluten free (but I still wonder where the smell comes from)

It gives a little bit on colour to the skin, but not as much as I thought it would. It does look very pigmented when out of the tube.

It doesn’t really “sink” into the skin in any way and I do not think it is a product I would use again (yes, the smell is a huge turn-off); beside this, the colour is way to orange on my skin.

If you are interested though, is costs about 240DKK (32Euro) and can be bought here

Laritzy cosmetics – fine dew pot illuminateur in bot

This is the second creamy highlighter I have tried, and the first one I tried turned out disappointing me really bad, so I am excited to see if this one is just as bad (I really do not hope so)

It smells exactly like a stress ball, which is kind of weird and unexpected.

It has an absolutely stunning rose colour, and is easy distributed on the skin. I think this product might work better as a shimmery blush or maybe a subtle highlighter since it is very pigmented. I am very interested in trying out other colours from them because this one it so beautiful, shimmery and pigmented.

It is really easy taking off, do not stick anywhere and leaves no traces. I am impressed!

It costs 130dkk (17,4 Euro) and can be bought on their website

Goodiebox – Beauty Blender

Compared to some of the other products from goodiebox, I am really impressed with this one!

The sponge itself is very nice and squishy – it is cute and pink.

I use this beauty blender every day, and it blends very well. It does not streak or clump, but helps my makeup distribute prettily.

Unfortunately, I made the mistake the first time to not dampen it – I know, I know, I am ashamed – simply because I am lazy, so it has taken a lot of colour from my products. Afterwards though I remember to dampen it (almost every time) so now my makeup goes a long way.

It costs 120 DKK (16 Euro) and is found on their own website

What do you guys think, and what is your favorite beauty blender??

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Benefits of yoga

Benefits of yoga

 

For me, yoga is a great way to stay healthy in both body and mind and therefore I aspire to do at least a little of this every day.

There is one trillion yoga poses (that is maybe a little exaggeration) and they all help with a lot of different things.

Some helps a lot with digestion, some with losing weight, others with balance and focus. There are even yoga poses to calm down and fall asleep, or to get energized and moving.
I usually do a little of each when I do yoga (I don’t always take the ones to both sleep and getting energized since that seems a little unnecessary, but tailor them more for if I actually need to calm down or if I need to get going for something I need to be pumped for)

 

Today I will tell you a little about the benefits of doing yoga, so that you hopefully will start doing a little bit of yoga occasionally too

 

  1. Increases lung capacity because you have so much focus on breathing while doing yoga
  2. Focusing on breathing in yoga also gives you more oxygen to the brain so that it will function better while improving your focus and concentration
  3. The slow breathing (I know, why so many benefits of breathing? Well because it is ESSENTIAL for living- literally) causes your body and mind to slow down and therefore balances your hormones, which makes you de-stress.
  4. Increases your arm strength- it has been shown that after 16 classes, your arm strength will have increased by 12% because so many yoga poses have you using your arms in different ways that you normally would
  5. You get a better posture by doing yoga since there is such a huge focus on how you utilize your body. This also improves your sense of balance
  6. Another study has shown, that you after 8 weeks of yoga practice increases your flexibility by 35% because your stretch and exercise your muscles so much during yoga
  7. Can help treat arthritis. Doing yoga regularly has been shown to work as pain relief for people who suffers from arthritis
  8. Makes you more flexible because you stretch both your muscles, ligaments and tendons
  9. Helps lose weight because most yoga poses stimulate the liver, activates the thyroid gland and creates the right pH- balance in the body (and just saying- some yoga poses can make you sweat. A LOT)
  10. Helps prevent lower back pain. It has been shown that if you just do two 90-minute yoga classes a week for six months, your lower back pain should be eased with 56%. This is caused because almost every yoga poses exercise your back muscles.
  11. Keeps you happy. One hour of yoga increases the levels of depression fighting chemicals in your brain by 27%
  12. Yoga works as anxiety relief. A study has shown that 12 weeks of yoga can helps reduce anxiety while increasing the gamma-aminobutyric levels in the brain (if the gamma-aminobutyric levels get low we are more prone to get depressed or anxious)
  13. Studies have shown that after three months of yoga practice migraine sufferers have fewer and less painful migraines
  14. Yoga might fight food cravings. Yoga means you have to be aware of your breathing. This has been shown to improve the awareness of the emotional sensations that are associated with consuming food and will therefore reduce eating mindlessly.
  15. Aids with digestion. Especially poses that includes twists applies a gentle pressure to the abdomen, which stimulates and stretches the muscles in your stomach and therefore align your organs to function better

 

This is a crazy amount of benefits I know, and that is exactly why I love yoga!

 

Now with all this in mind, go out, enjoy some yoga and have a ball with it!

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time! ❤
