Today's hair

The braids from yesterday actually worked pretty well. 
I guess because the thinner braid is hidden on the inside?

Well, that's pretty good to know: I don't have to be so careful to split the two braids equally.

Today's hair

Usually when I do the royal bun I split the two braids in equal thickness. Tomorrow I'm going to try one where the bottom braid is significantly thinner.

Sensitive skin sucks!

In my Lumene Christmas calendar last year I got a glow boost essence. At first I was suspicious, because it contains vitamin C and that often comes from sea buckthorn, which I'm, highly allergic to. An ingredient check proved it didn't, so I used it and loved it. 

I loved it so much I've been getting the full sized ever since.

Then later in the calendar, I got a cream in the same line. I put that one in my "to use" pile and sort of forgot about it.

Some weeks ago, I had to travel for work and grabbed that cream because it was a good, small size.

After two days, my skin had freaked out on me: Itchy, sore and with a weird, bumpy texture. I tried to get a good picture of that weird, sandpaper-like surface.

Because although the essence doesn't contain sea buckthorn, the cream does.

When you have sensitive skin or allergies, always, always check your ingredient list. Just because one product in a line doesn't contain a certain ingredient, it doesn't mean everything else doesn't either. Sigh.
