Window 16 – 2014


Window 16 contained…


Indian Night Jasmine Fragrance Mist

This was an interesting product to get since I really haven’t looked closer at this series.
I like the scent and think that this fragrance mist will do me company in my Yoga Room (under construction), probably both as a room scent and a mat spray.



Window 08 – 2013


The eight window held…


Moringa body mist.

I only have one other body mist and that’s pink grapefruit. I like the feeling of it and the fresh scent.

I haven’t tried the Moringa products much, I’ve thought the smell a little to strong. But since I got thus now I’ll dig up my shower gel and body milk and give them another try.


Window Number 16 – 2012

In the 16:th window I found

Lucka 16 Stängd

Vanilla Body Mist – 100 ml

Lucka 16 Öppen

I’m not really a vanilla kind of girl. At least I’ve never been. The scent used to give me an extreme headache and I’d shy away from anything – except ice cream – containing the word vanilla, even vanilla milkshakes.
So naturally I’ve never given the vanilla products at The Body Shop a second glance.

This mist doesn’t give me a headache. It’s soft, smooth and subtle enough to just leave a faint smell of vanilla on my skin, without bein overwhelming. Wich for me is a real surprise, when I opened the window and saw this I sighed and though “damnit, vanilla” so I was pleasantly surprised. But it’s probably because it’s a mist and not a perfume. It will probably be a while before I dare try a perfume that says vanilla.
I’ll probably combine the vanilla scent with the Chocomania scent to get a sweet, rich chocolatey vanilla scen. at least until I’m used to the vanilla.


Window Number 6 – 2012

And the sixth window contains

Lucka 06 Stängd

Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray – 60 ml

Lucka 06 Öppen

I already have this one but in a bigger bottle and I love it.
The peppermint scent is nice and it really is cooling.

You spray this on your feet to refresh them, it feel nice and its simply wonderful during hot summer days or when you’ve been wearing heels for long. The cooling effect can also have a small shrinking effect on swollen feet, but that might just be in my imagination.
Since it’s a spray it’s easy to apply whenever needed. and I usually fit the larger bottle in my bag, this one might even fit in my purse.
But this is a must have for me during the warm summer months and always have a place in my bag.


Winter is Coming – Feet Guide

Picture from Here

Here’s the next part of my Winter is Coming Series.
This Time it’s about Feet

During the winter months your feet aren’t out in the air so much. Shoes and socks are on our feet constantly. This causes the feet to get warm, sweaty and disgusting. I’m not really a fan of feet.
Since your feet are so closed up they can’t really breathe, wich can result in athlete’s foot. So here are some tips to prevent athlete’s foot and keep your feet fresh and callus free.

Prevent Athlete’s Foot

1. Use breathing material.
Materials like cotton and other natural materials allows your feet to breath through the materials.
Also change socks every day. If you sweat alot you can even change twice a day.

2. Inside shoes
Get a pair of inside shoes for your workplace/school. Sandals or other open shoes are good.

3. Wash your feet.
Your feet get’s sweaty in the shoes, that sweat stays on your feet. Wash your feet every night, make sure to wash between the toes. Also make sure your feet are dry
This might sound annoying, but clean feet are healthy feet. And it doesn’t really take that much time.

Remove Calluses

1. Soften feet
Take a nice foot bath with some foot salt and soak your feet to soften the skin before scrubbing.

2. Scrub
Try to avoid the foot file since it’s easy to file on the healthy skin which will just cause more hard skin. Instead go for a foot scrub or buff gently with a pumice stone. If filing is needed, do it carefully. After you scrubed you can soak your feet a bit more.

3. Moisturize
A key step in not getting that hard skin to come back so fast is to keep your feet moisturized. For some people moisturizing is even enought o get rid of it. Massaging in a foot lotion after a foot bath makes the lotion absorb better.

+Tip – Lemon
The acidity in lemons work well against hard skin. Simply rub fresh squezed lemon juice on the hard skin or put some lemon slicec on and let sit for a few hours. Then scrub as usual.

Keeping the Feet Fresh

While all of the above obviously helps keeping your feet freash, here are some extra steps to use if needed.

1. Foot Spray
This is a spray you just spray on your feet. It usually works on tired, warm and – some sprays – even mildly swollen feet

2. Nails
Keep ypur toenails trimmed and clean.


Here are some of the products I use.

Foot Bath
Usually I use The Body Shops – Peppermint Reiving Foot Soak
But dead sea salt and/or a little soap works to.

Foot Scrub

Again, usually I use The Body Shops Peppermint Soothimg Pumoce Foot Scrub
And/or a pumice stone.
But body scrubs and exfoliating gloves works to.
I just love the scent of peppermint


The body Shop – Cooling Foot Lotion
The Body Shop – Intensive Foot Rescue
The Body Shop – Hemp Foot Protector
Shemen Amour – Mineral Foot Cream
I usually moisturize my feet before going to bed. Wich one I use depends on my mood and what I feel like.
I’f I’m lucky enough to get a footmassage from my wonderful boyfriend I always go for one of the heavier creams since they’ll get massaged in.

Foot Spray

The Body Shop – Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray

This one was in my bag the entire summer. If my feet were getting tired and sweaty I could just sit down on a bench, kick of my shoes and spray this on to cool the feet of and get a fresh boost. I also use this if I get home after a late night with high heels.


That’s all I had on this right now. I f you think I missed anything, let me know.
