Joik Rose and red clay handmade soap

Joik Advent Calendar Day 7 – Rose & Red Clay Handmade Soap

This is an oil based handmade soap. It literally starts melting in your hands if you will hold it long enough.  Like all Joik products it is nourishing and very gentle on the skin. It does not contain any harsh cleansing agents.

I use soaps quite a lot. I use them instead of shower gels and hand soaps. A soap with good ingredients works better on my skin than a liquid soap. Your skin will feel very moisturised after using it. I am not sure I would try it on my face. Oh .. did I say that it smells amazing … it does …. it smells like a rose. It has a very pleasant and subtle fragrance that  I can’t imagine anyone disliking 😉

JOIK Cleansing facial foam with cucumber & watercress extracts & aloe juice

Joik Advent Calendar Day 1 – Cleansing facial foam

Hello everyone!  So … this year I got my Christmas decorations  out early this year … middle of November early 😉 Shortly after that I was browsing LoveLula website and I came across Joik Advent Calendar.  Now, I am a complete Advent Calendar Newbie. I never ever had an advent calendar before. I actually felt in love with the packaging first. I absolutely love the box design. Then I did a quick brand research and thought to myself … gosh I really want to try this brand … and what a better way to try a new brand than get a bunch of samples… get yourself an advent calendar  … and that is exactly what I did.

Hello everyone! I know that there is no schedule to my blogposts. I think I have to get better at organising my time.

My skincare routine inspired by Charlotte Cho

Hello everyone. A while ago I have introduced into my daily life Korean skincare routine . I always felt that my skin is high maintenance. There is no way I could go to sleep with my makeup still on and wake up without a few surprises and hundreds of blackheads on my face. Cleansing my face each day thoroughly  was always a priority for me ever since I was a teenager. I never had bad acne but since I was about 15 years old  I suffered from blackheads. I tried everything and twenty years later I still have them.
