I love healthy looking and feeling skin, which is the main reason I like to take care of it and give it lots of love and care. In this post and on stories today, I’m trying out L’Oréal Paris True Match foundation with a new formula, infused with Hyaluronic acid. I love to wear makeup that does good for my skin, because my skin philosophy is: protect along the day and nourish during the night when our bodies repair and re-build. Hence the love for using makeup that protects my skin and does good. This foundation is something between a moisturizer and foundation, because it’s 80% moisturizing cream and says it will improve skin quality in two weeks! If makeup can do that, I’m on!

True match feels very lightweight and smooth, is easy to apply while it gives a medium coverage and a very natural but beautiful and dewy finish. I always use my fingers for a warmed-up formula to work with, which I think sets beautifully onto my skin while it feels like the cleanest “tool” to use. I love when the foundation blends into the skin instead of stay “on top”, and this does that very well, which I think makes it so natural looking while still giving my skin an even skin tone and satiny feel.

The new formula is fragrance free and  you know I like that, because I like to limit fragrance only to my chosen perfume and lipstick. Side note, lipstick is one of my favourite scents in the whole world! Anyhow, if you like me love the natural look, I highly recommend going for this one.

To drop off the kids to daycare with shampoo foam dripping down your shoulders (congrats you got that far!),” brushing” your teeth with gum, shower every third day and the only hair many of us get is with an abundance of dry shampoo – seems to be pretty basic for many of us. Well today was definitely one of those days, and even though I finally took a shower after God knows how long, threw out the garbage that has been laying around in the hallway for more than a day and you know, tried to at least play the part of being myself, I still feel like I’m ready to delete this day from my calendar. Not my strongest mum day today.

Luckily, I’ve been busy doing things all day, and I’ve been more productive than I have in weeks. Thank you so much for your support. Your messages made me cry many times today. Not because they were sad (most were actually pretty funny and really made me feel less bad), but because sharing is caring, and I felt so happy and privileged to see how much we all want to be there for each other when we sense it’s needed.  It may be a cliché, but it’s true. At least for me. I hate feeling alone, so just knowing that there are more of us out there who fail every now and then, makes my mind feel lighter and hopeful.
