nail polish: Hema
cream: Skin Rescuer by Kiehl’s
glass container: iittala

/ As you can see I’m not that fond of labels. Bare containers and bottles look less cluttered and more uniform on my shelf.

/ Some of you have send me messages about skin care routines. It is pretty basic and straight forward, I just try to keep my face 1/ as clean as possible, 2/ hydrated and 3/ protected against the sun (by adding some extra sunblock to my day cream).

/ A little over a month I’ve been testing out this new Kiehl’s cream, and I can’t let it go unmentioned. Specially during busybusybusy times where I tend to have less sleep, this little bottle has been a lifesaver in the morning. When really stressed, I like to take an extra minute or two to apply it and really massage it in, it makes your face feel completely awake and fresh again.

    Hoi Ivania! Ik heb een vraag voor je. Ik meen me te herinneren dat je ooit op een van je foto’s een soort ‘neppiercing’ boven in je oor droeg. Hij was breed, en mat-zilver. (Misschien was het trouwens ook wel een echte piercing.) Ik vond hem er in ieder geval erg mooi uitzien en vroeg me af waar je zoiets koopt.

    Just took off the labels on the products the i use. thanks for the inspiration

  22. Hey Ezra! Ja dat klopt, ik heb een gouden(die ik bij de 2e hands afdeling heb gevonden van een juweliers zaakje) en een zilveren die ik destijds bij Asos had gekocht. Op ebay kan je ze nog wel vinden als je zoekt naar ‘ear cuff’

    hier eentje bijvoorbeeld:

    i use exclusively LUSH, the only reason i mention this is that your post reminded me of them as all of their skincare is packed in a neat way that does not need to be altered or stripped of its labels
    all black
    with white font
    the only company so far i have come across that has outstanding packaging but the reason for using them is that i strictly support the ethics of natural skincare
    no carcinogens
    little or no preservatives
    and no animal testing
    nothing of it sinks into the body

    You even managed to get all the clutters in your home uniformed. Girl, you’re my role model :’)

    Nice idea especially if you see your cosmetics as designing objects, too.
