Here are some products we wouldn’t mind getting our hands on this month..

Hydration Intense serum by Codage – Wouldn’t mind trying out this serum from Codage which is supposed to help protect your skin and lock in moisturize, especially important in a change of seasons (aka colder weather..brrr) when you need that extra care and hydration.

Pumpkin Enzyme mask by Peter Thomas Roth – Used up the sample size very quickly… This mask smells absolutely delicious, pretty much like a freshly baked pumpkin pie. Beware if you have very sensitive skin though because it is quite powerful.

Bath salt by L:A Bruket – A lovely bath salt including orange, geranium, marigold, rose and lavender, for a hot soothing bath.  We are just in love with basically anything from this Swedish brand with all natural products och very stylish packaging.

White Forest perfume by Björk & Berries – White Forest is described as a sensual and exciting scent with notes of  wood and forest air, that got us hooked already.  Comes in a beautiful minimalist bottle with gold details.

“Snö” candle by Skandinavisk – “Snö” means snow in Swedish and we already got some of that over here.. this candle has a subtle scent of wood and berries, perfect to light up those cold northern winter nights.

Lola earrings in royal blue by Lily & Rose– We adore the brand Lily & Rose by Zetterberg and their exquisite vintage style jewellery. These earrings..yes please! Loving the royal blue colour.

Pure Glow oil by Akademikliniken  – Heard a lot about this little gem from Akademikliniken skin care. It is quite pricey, but has a high concentration of Vitamin C and promises glow, protection and deep nutrition.

Moonchild glow kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills – The Aurora glow kit was a love at first sight.. and now this! The Moonchild glow kit contains cooler blue, more wintery shades – Purple horseshoe (glittering lavender) and Blue Moon (frozen blue with silver reflect) sounds like something else…!

Instant illuminizer by Lumene – Give your cheeks some natural glow with this beautiful highlighter, the rosey shade “Rosy dawn” is absolutely dreamy and it contains cloudberry extract..what’s not to love?

Mini candle collection by Jo Malone London – Have always admired the gorgeous fragrances and candles by Jo Malone London. This lovely little set contains scents Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Red Roses and English Pear & Freesia.
