Summer Travels with Lather

Brought to you by Lather – Disclosure here – opinions are strictly my own.

Happy Monday!

This is my last day here in Salzburg, Austria – I am flying back to LA tomorrow, another long flight within a relatively short time. I must say I am really surprised how well I did with my jet lag this time around, I had previous trips where I had a hard time adjusting and sleeping, this time I had no problems whatsoever.

I personally think that it has a lot to do with my Yoga exercises, I made a point out of taking better care of my mind as well as of my body, set some healthy boundaries for myself and it improved my personal wellbeing and productivity a lot.

Flying on planes and airports have been a steady companion throughout my life being a dancer – I actually do not like to fly and I am also quite afraid but I got it down to a science and it became a normal and very manageable routine for me. But I make a point of taking extra special care of myself, flying and time changes are stressful for the body and I only use products  I love to make me feel good and to protect my skin.

This is why I am so excited to show you my latest obsession. I found out about Lather a couple of month ago on a trip to Arizona when I walked into one of their stores and loved it immediately. Lather is all about wellness and natural ingredients combined with aromatherapy. all their products contain unique healing ingredients and essential oils that are good for the mind and body.

I took the “Fly Away Kit” c/o with me on this trip, it includes travel-friendly sizes of  some of my favorites.

  1. mint thyme hair wash – a light daily cleanser that makes my hair feel soft and silky. peppermint and thyme oil are awakening and stimulating – great for the morning or to help with jet-lag when traveling.
  2. yuzu bergamot crème rinse – bergamot and yuzu naturally uplift and refresh and the product helps keeping your hair soft and elastic.
  3. bamboo lemongrass body wash – leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh – I kept using it for my face as well.
  4. lavender lime moisturizer – I also used it for my face,  I loved using it on the plane to  moisturize my skin.
  5. unscented lip balm – with broad spectrum SPF 15 – this was my life saver, no cracked, dry and irritated lips – the perfect protection and nourishment.
  6. AHA hand crème with evening primrose – AHAs gently exfoliate the skin, Evening primrose, rosehip and grapeseed oils moisturize and protect the skin. One of my absolute favorites, especially on the plane!

I would love to hear from you if you have any special routines and tips for traveling, please share with me, I would love to hear!

Thank you so much to Lather for bringing you this post!

Love My Scrub

Happy Monday!

We had the best weather here this weekend and I spent time with my horse outside, did new outfit shots and took the doggies on a little road trip.

The air is dry in California and my skin gets irritated easily and needs exfoliated frequently to keep it soft and glowing.

I got this new scrub that I would like to share with you. I use it especially in the morning – it is made from Coffee beans and it smells so good, like freshly brewed Espresso.

Originally this scrub is for the body but I used it on my face as well – I just use a small amount, the particles are quite effective exfoliants. For the excess coffee particles you can simply use a bathtub drain protector.

I love the fact that this is a hand made, natural and organic product with no harsh chemicals. And it leaves my skin soft and with no greasy or oily residue afterwards. I just use regular moisturizer and I am ready to go.

Thanks to Love my Scrub, for sponsoring this post.

Rakuten x Lancome Bonus Box

These products were sent to me for reviewing purposes. All reviews are my own opinions. Post contains affiliate links.

Oh I am so excited, I got selected by the Rakuten Network to receive the Exclusive Lancome Bonus Box! It feels like Christmas in August and I love all these products they sent me including the brand new Monsieur Big Mascara.

The House of Lancome has an extensive history going back to 1930ies, it was founded by Armand Petitjean. Today, more than 80 years later, Lancôme stands for the highest quality in skincare, with timeless style and scientifically proven results.

I remember getting introduced to Lancome products when I was still a teenager and my first perfume I owned was Tresor by Lancome, I loved their products ever since.

Bi-Facil Eye Make Up Remover: This is in my experience the best eye make up remover I know. It is a double-phase liquid and you have to shake it before you apply it so the two fluids mix. You just need a little bit on a cotton pad – it removes any kind of eye make up – even waterproof ones – and it leaves you with a smooth feeling – no grease – no pulling on your eye lids. And no “raccoon look” the next morning – lol.

Energie de Vie Liquid Care: It feels like drinking water with Lemon every morning – just from the outside… – that was my first thought that came into my mind when I tried Energie de Vie Liquid Care – it feels like it nourishes, hydrates and detoxes the skin at the same time – a real energy boost. It leaves the skin super soft and smooth with a little glow. Fabulous for me – especially for my busy lifestyle! I LOVE!

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Corrector: This magical little tube manages to conceal skin irregularities like dark spots, dark circles, redness and other imperfections and comes in different colors for different skin types. For me it is especially important that it is lightweight and does not crease plus stays on for a whole day – and I got exactly that. I can recommend you to try it as well – it’s great!

Monsieur Big Mascara:  I love thick black eyelashes and what I loved about this one is that it is very creamy when you put it on – therefore it builds up Volume – and – it does not come off. It gives you an intense black lash color and I do feel that it emphasizes my eyes and makes them look bigger and more dramatic. I am hooked for sure!

Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick:  This is a cool product, you shake the little bottle and when you open it you have a sponge with the color on the tip. When you apply it it feels like fluid – you can build up color by layering it – so you can go from natural to intense however you would like. The Best Thing is that it does not dry out your lips – but gives you this beautiful silky matte finish. Definitely a new approach to Lip color. I LOVE!

Thank you so much to the Rakuten Network and Lancome for sending me this amazing Box! I loved it!
