Hi, I am Elina!
Since I posted a picture of me with BEE GOOD Lip Balm on Instagram I got tons of messages asking about the product and how/where I get it from, how soon one sees positive effect on dry lips and so on, so I thought to pack everything in a blog post and share it with you guys... :)
I've been struggling with dry/broken and even bleeding lips for as long as I can remember and the various piece of advice I'd gotten included exfoliating my lips and other techniques I honestly hate and it would always end up messy so then I had to cover up my bruised lips with lipstick that further dehydrated my lips and there the vicious circle went on and on.
I bumped on this little piece of magic one day at a stock shop that would bring organic products from abroad at extremely low prices and you could buy tones of that stuff... so I grabbed just one at first to try it out - I went for the VANILLA & HONEY LIP BALM.
How soon one sees a difference: Personally, immediately. Minutes after I put the balm on my lips it soothed the feeling of dryness, that feeling as if my lips were being stretched was gone. Lips still looked bad but they started looking much better already the next day. A week later lips were perfectly healed (no ''bruises'', looking healthy) and kind of found their balance which means my lips stopped getting so dry and chapped even when I would not use the product anymore. I use the balm every day for optimum results and particularly after brushing my teeth as toothpaste can be particularly hard on the lips.
Ingredients: British beeswax, British crambe oil, British echium oil, British Borage oil, British wildflower honey, Vitamin E.
NO parabens, synthetic color, mineral oil, silicone, SLS or SLES.
Where you get it & for how much: You can get it for 5.36€ (or dollars) at their official website and in fact they have different sizes; the size you see on the picture I posted is the 10ml one for 5.36€ and there is a triple pack (3 times 10ml) which costs 11.26€. For 11.32€ you can also get their LIP BALM TRIO which includes the lip balm in 3 different versions:
Vanilla & Honey, Raspberry & White Chocolate and Lime Blossom & Honey. Which reminds me I have to restock and I am probably going indeed for the LIP BALM TRIO next time as I can't wait to try the rest two balms :)
Other info: Well, the brand (BEE GOOD) has all sorts of other skincare products as well such as cleanser, exfoliators etc.
Check their website to get a taste - I know you'll love it! :)
Happy New Year, every one!
Breakfast is the most delightful meal of the day because I can wake up and slowly put myself together, organize my thoughts and plan the day ahead while... munching something delicious!
Throughout 2017 I disciplined myself to eat breakfast every day and not to venture off to my business with an empty stomache. I must say it has been very rewarding simply because I feel much better, I am more focused and I also have some extra time to contemplate how awesome life is - no joke, I feel particularly blessed!
Some of you asked what I usually eat for breakfast and the truth is there is no standar answer to that simply because I love to alternate what I am having for breakfast. I have phases where I go for delicious salmon or avocado toast or plain brioche bread and juice.
Currently my favorite breakfast is - wait for it- traditional Greek yogurt (yes, the full fat one) or SKYR with fruit.
I like to get my yogurt pure, without the fruit already in it. This way I can add whatever fruit I want myself, fresh from the market. Finally, I love to add some honey for energy and chia seeds on top.
What is your favorite breakfast? Do you always go for the same recipe or you like to alternate often your options?
