This past May my boyfriend, Joel, I took a vacation to Iceland and Sweden. We went horsbeackriding through the Iceland countryside, saw all the natural wonders, and bathed at the Blue Lagoon (Ladies, get there if you can, it’s worth the 4 hour plane ride) while enjoying a white silica mud mask. I’m not sure if it was just the amazing time we had, or the relaxation and natural beauty that you experience when you’re there, but since going, I have a soft spot in my heart for all things Icelandic. Iceland beauty means natural wellness, natural geothermal active ingredients, silica and algea.
With all that being said, you can imagine how excited I was when I heard about the new skin care line that Sephora was starting to carry, Skyn Iceland. I’ve been eyeing it for quite some time now, but it’s quite pricey, and I’ve promised myself that I’m going to use up most of the eye creams, moistureizers and peels that I have before I allow myself to buy more. So far, I’ve kept my promise, but last night while in Sephora I was super close to buying their new Detox Kit for Stressed Skin. I asked the skin care specialist what she thought of the line, and she said that since it was so new she hadn’t had much time to use it or familiarize herself with it. Instead of buying the Detox Kit (which I will have sooner or later) I asked for a sample of the Oxygen Infusion Night Cream. I’m going to try it tonight, but I hope she gave me enough for one use (from the looks of the sample, it’s doubtful) – she was being very stingy! Review coming soon!
