Favourite skin care products April

skin care musthaves April

A change of season is the perfect moment to replace and update your skin care products. Every month new products make their way onto store shelves and I want to tell you all about it! This month I received a few products to try out ( the advantage of being a ‘blogger’, I know) and I bought new products of my number 1 favourite brand Kiehl’s. Nop, not everything is sponsored you see. There are a few brands out there I absolutely adore and Kiehl’s is one of them.  If you have a few minutes to relax this Sunday, make yourself a coffee and read my new article about my favourite products. These are my favourites I can’t live without this month.


Everyone knows Kiehl’s, but my story goes way back in time. I first got to know this brand because of my grandmother. She loves this brand! Whenever she got back from holiday abroad, she always brought one of their lip balms with her, which isn’t available in Belgium.

Have you ever visited one of their shops? Imagine a place where you’re warmly welcomed, where you’re surrounded by amazing skin care and where you’ll absolutely find whatever you need. A skin test will show what your skin needs and you’ll leave the shop with products tailored to your needs. Doesn’t that sound amazing?

Midnight Recovery Concentrate

I’ve gathered up quite a collection of this brand. My favourite one is their bestselling Midnight Recovery Concentrate. It’s a rich face oil designed to be worn at night. The relaxing lavender aroma reduces the effects of stress and I feel completely relaxed. My skin looks amazing in the morning! I only need to use a few drops for my skin, and it contains enough oil for about 6 tot 9 months. One of my favourite skin care products!

Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil

Because I loved the concentrate that much, I decided to give their Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil a try.  It’s enriched with botanical oils and smells divine. This lightweight essential oil cleanser emulsifies with water to a cleansing milk, gently, yet effectively dissolving even the hardest to remove makeup and impurities.

Overnight Mask

Also I bought their newest overnight mask: Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask. This indulgent velvety cream mask is formulated with hibiscus, whose flower is known to close during the night to preserve its nectar. It softens the look of fine lines for a younger-looking complexion.

Massage it onto clean skin at night with an upward motion. Leave on overnight and cleanse skin in the morning. I absolutely love this mask! It’s so fresh and my skin feels really soft. A must have!

Kneipp Body Lotion Spray

Who doesn’t know the brand Kneipp? I love their bath products but now they’ve also come up with a new type of body lotion in their famous scents Patchouli and Silky Secret.

Kneipp has launched this new range for when you don’t have a lot of time in the mornings. The sprays moisturize skin and have a quick absorption. In fact, I don’t like to apply body lotion cream because it takes too long and now I have this great alternative.

I love the scents and the sprays are really refreshing as well, perfect for warmer weather in Spring/ Summer!

Babor Ampoule Concentrates Hydra Glow

Last but not least: this festival edition from Babor. You guys probably know I’m a huge fan of Babor, they always have the most amazing products. Right now they’ve come up with a a range of limited editions of festival ampoules. At festivals you obviously don’t have plenty of time and you can’t bring your entire bag with skin care products. That’s why Babor came up with this brand new product.

The different sets contain tailored combinations of ampoule concentrates for maximal effect in 7 days.

I’ve received the ‘Ultra Glow‘, which is a 7-day ampoule treatment with hyaluronic acid and polysaccharides that moisturize the skin deeply. This treatment adds extra radiance thanks to glow pigment. Sounds great! It contains different ampoules, each of them for a specific day of the week. The order in which you apply them is important as well! Start with the ampoule from day 1 and end with the last one.

I’ve been testing these ones and I believe it can be a life saver. It hydrates skin, leaving it soft and all glowy. Perfect for festivals!

You can find Ultra Glow over here.
