Korento is a new cosmetics line that aims to provide a high-quality, natural alternative to synthetic makeup. Their products are made in Finland in small batches to ensure good quality. I personally am excited about their products since I’ve had a hard time finding good natural makeup to use as foundation. My skin is very dry, especially during winter and I find that wearing foundation often makes it even worse. Their Cream Foundation is my new best friend when I want some coverage on my skin.

Products used:

berry vitamin cream foundation*

This is my new go-to concealer/foundation. It’s silky smooth and super easy to layer for better coverage.

vitamin infused lip & cheek tint*

Incredibly high-pigmented, long lasting product. I’ll be wearing this shade for all the christmast parties in December!

serum foundation*

I use this to even out my skin tone and pamper my skin. Not very high coverage, so I like to dab on the cream foundation on imperfections when using this.

botanical finishing powder*

This is made of rice flour. It absorbs oils and leaves your skin matte, as a mineral powder would. I use this very carefully, on my nose and forehead. Works as emergency dry shampoo as well!

BYBI Beauty is an English skincare line that almost sounds too good to be true. 100% vegan, using all natural ingredients and exotic oil blends to make your skin glow. + their packaging is adorable and mostly biodegradeable! 

Made by women

Founded by natural beauty industry experts Elsie and Dominika from Clean Beauty Collection, BYBI skincare is a brand created with insight. No fillers or diluted ingredients used. 

Our favorites:

Supercharge serum has more than 18 different botanical oils- and extracts. It's designed to feel almost like a dry oil, soft and pampering but with fast-absorbtion.

"A concentration of Squalane, Prickly Pear and Jasmine oils moisturise, soften and encourage skin cell rejuvenation.
Meadowfoam, Poppy Seed and Lemongrass oils work to balance and even skin tone, for all day bright complexions." 

Babe balm: I've had a hard time finding an organic thick multi-purpose balm to replace my old one. But I can gladly say i've finally found the one.

I use it on my lips, hands and any dry areas. I also love to dab some on my cheekbones for a glossy & dewy look! 

Buffer & Plumper

This is probably the cutest pair of skincare I've ever seen. 
Delicious (but not for eating) sugar & strawberry lip scrub for a smooth canvas

Cooling lip balm that gives you a plump look using peppermint and blood orange essential oils. Let the shea butter wonder work it's magic!

A cosmetics line filled with crystal magic, natures own pure ingredients and innovation, might I say I'm in love? 
Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr launched in Finland last week with a new line of amazing products. One of the star ingredients is Rose Quarts, which is used to energize all the water used in the products. Another highlighted ingredient is the Noni fruit, a scrumptious high-antioxidant superfruit that's responsible for that 'Noni Glow' Miranda Kerr has going on. The brand is completely Cruelty free, Vegan and Certified Organic. Let me introduce you to my absolute favorites from the line. 

Energizing citrus mist:

This mist is a delicious mix of Noni extract and Aloe vera, combined with mandarin and lemongrass essential oils. It's a refreshing and rejuvenating little treat to keep on your desk or in your bag for a little pick-me-up during the day, and especially in the morning. Who needs coffee anyway?

Noni radiant eye oil: 

Get this. The roll-on ball is actually made of Rose Quarts! How amazing is that? It's calming and cooling on the sensitive parts of your under-eye skin, and the repleneshing oils do wonders for the skin. 

Rose quarts highlighter: 

The key ingredient is crushed rose quarts. This highlighter is my favorite one ever, it gives your skin a dewy glow naturally and every time I use it i feel like I'm not only glowing from the outside but on the inside as well. 

Noni Glow face oil:

I'm a big fan of face oils, and this one did not fail me. The Noni Extract, Rosehip Oil, Pomegranate Oil and Sea Buckthorn Oil create a luxurious blend that feels silky smooth on your skin.
