Notes from a Swedish stylist


It’s the season of giving. I feel, more than ever, that time is what I will enjoy both giving and receiving the most. It’s been a busy fall and I crave some serious quality time with my family.

Time, and a few well-chosen gifts. This week, the plan is to get some precious gifts for our loved ones. I really like the idea of life gifts instead of Christmas gifts. I think there’s something precious about the tradition of giving that I don’t want to give up, but obviously, I can do without conspicuous consumption and buying weird things that’ll be used once or twice just because “I have to”.

Life gifts are all-time favorites that fit into the life of the receiver, perhaps enhance it or make it a little easier. I love giving everyday things that are sure to be used–perhaps something yummy eatable; perhaps something that makes a grey December day a bit easier.

After having worked continuously with SKIN TREAT for this whole year, I’ve really been able to identify some favorite highly effective beauty products for everyday use–made in my neighborhood (!) from plant based sources and potent organic ingredients.

I would highly recommend these three products for anyone you love. Perhaps they suit as last minute sustainable gifts for someone you haven’t figured out what to get yet?

SKIN TREAT Brightening Vitamin C Face Elixir
SKIN TREAT Multi-Action Face Wash
SKIN TREAT Deep-Hydrating Hand Cream

Either way, I hope you will get some of that precious time with your loved ones. Talk soon!
In paid collaboration with SKIN TREAT.
