Come, come, let’s gather, green beauty lovers! Today, let me introduce you to Kjaer Weis, a natural and organic cosmetic brand created by Danish-born, New York based make-up artist, Kirsten Kjaer Weis. So how exactly do we pronounce the name? It’s Kē-yar Wīs. Okay, that’s Danish and I suppose it might be verbally challenging for many of us in this part of the world but at the least, just try to remember the spelling okay?
This is a handmade crocodile-skin handbag that belonged to my mom. I remember she had this made when I was a lot younger so this bag must have been around for at least 35 years. It’s definitely a vintage now but while I love vintage inspired fashion, I’m not sure I want to carry this around. For one thing, even though croc skin is valuable, it’s not really my kind of thing. But during my mom’s day, such croc-skin handbags are very popular; they were the IT bag of her days.
My face seems to like a variety of beverages. Currently it’s Pu’er tea but for a period of time, I was using a DIY green tea rinse for my face. Just that after awhile, I couldn’t keep up with the daily usage of green tea powder and I stop drinking the tea too. But it’s a great facial rinse and is still one of my favorite today. Apparently, it’s also a favorite for Korean actress Kim Nam Joo who is fond of using green tea to wash her face and to keep her pores looking clean and clear.
Despite being a skin care junkie, I don’t use too many facial sheet masks because I’d found the whole application rather time consuming. But increasingly, I am more open to trying them again, because they’re truly convenient when it comes to giving my skin a quick hydration boost. Unfortunately, I haven’t come across an all-natural facial sheet mask but I’m good when they are made without parabens, alcohol, silicones, fragrance and artificial color—like the Amask Gold & Stem Cells Facial Mask, an anti-aging product formulated with gold, Swiss apple stem cells and Ecocert certified herbal extracts.
