Once again this post is going up a bit late, but I do completely blame the fact that I am working crazy hours at my new job and I have NO TIME to do much of anything else. It is gonna get easier after next week so then I will have time to actually put in some real effort to the posts and videos. But enough about that let's get into the point of this post which is this Bette Box, that was again full of fun products for me to try out.

As you can see there were 8 products in this months box and that is not bad at all. Okay one is a foil packet and one is a perfume sample but still, I am not mad at it at all.

The foil one is a Vichy Ideal Body Serum Milk which is a body lotion. I will try it out but I am as you know not a fan of foil packets since they give so little and they are a bother to use. Because of the fact that you need to rip it up and somehow I find that to be very annoying.

There was also another Vichy product and that was the Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying and Plumping Daily Booster. On the package, it says to use it morning and evening by applying 2 drops on your skin. It fights against pollution, stress, and fatigue. This is definitely something my skin needs right now.

The perfume sample in this box was the Kenzo World. This one has peony, jasmine and ambroxan crystals. Don't ask me what the crystals are, I have no idea. I have a hard time saying anything about perfume samples in these posts since I feel you need a little time to actually know if you like one or not.

There was a time when seeing a shampoo in these boxes made me go meh, but now I don't mind them that much. I think they are quite fun to get again. Mostly because my shower isn't full of them anymore. This one is Schwartzkopf BC Scalp Genesis Purifying Shampoo. I have never really used purifying shampoos since I have never felt a need for it. But shampoos will always get used.

This did catch my attention because of the weird design. It is a lip balm. Blistex Ultra Moisturizing Bliss Flip is the name of this contraption which is really cool. You can open it with one hand if you need to. I don't know if that really is a necessary trait when it comes to lip balms, maybe people with small kids will like this, but I don't see the need. It does look quite cool though. It is also pretty big so it might be good to have in a bag since it is easy to find in there.

Next, we have SB12 Boost Antiplaque chewing gum which is to help with bad breath.  These have zink and flour. I will try these out and tell you if I like them.

The Nivea Creme Care Waterproof eye makeup remover is my favorite product in this box since I just had been thinking that I need to buy a new one since my last one is on the brink of death. So this really came perfectly. I am very pleased that the gods of Bette Box have been listening to me, not just this month but they did last month too! Thank you very much for making my life a bit easier.

Last but definitely not least is the Lumene Nordic Chic Soft Matte Pressed Powder. I love the white packaging but it will get really dirty in use, which is very sad. It still looks really good. I will have to try it and see if the color is okay or not, I really do hope it is. I love Lumene as a brand and I would love to use this one. I will keep you updated.

I am very happy with this box. There are many products that I will get to use and that is always great. The full sized products were together 27,85 € and you pay 18.90€ for the box so it is quite good since there are also all the testers too. My favorite product in this box was the Nivea makeup remover since it was a product I really needed.

Change is something that really puts my head for a spin. It doesn't matter if it is a good change or a bad one or if it is done by me or it has been out of my hands. I just react to change, which I guess is a very human thing and I can imagine that I am not alone in this. Change is the word I would use to describe the few last months of my life. It seems appropriate since there has been a lot of that happening lately. A lot of good things but also some less good, but the good things are the ones I am gonna concentrate on because that is what one should do. 

Firstly there is the fact that I have started working out which I mentioned in this post. It has been so great and I couldn't be happier about my choice to start the 8-week challenge with the team. I have already gotten such great results and I can't wait to see the results after the next 4 weeks. The people I work out with are just amazing and so supportive and it is just the best. The workouts are really hard but are done in a fun way. In the summer I worked out 3 times a week but now in the 8-week challenge, it is only 2 times a week, which is really good. Even if it is fun and great it does force you to change some things in your life to have time for it.   

Me and my awesome coach Niina <3
The second thing that has been taking up some (or a lot) of my time is my new relationship. This is a very unfamiliar situation for me since I have been single for such a long time (about 5-6 years). So it has been a very big change in my life, a very welcome one for sure and I couldn't be happier at the moment but it is a huge change that does put everything for a spin, in your brain, and in your life. I have to tell you that it does feel weird to call someone my boyfriend (not to mention hear someone use the word girlfriend when talking about me) but it is weird in a good way. A very good one. W will not be a huge part of this blog but he might get mentioned sometimes as in this post. And I just wanted to let you know about this big new happy change in my life. So now you know.

The third and final reason is quite a new one but a pretty big one that will absolutely take up a lot of my time at least for the few upcoming weeks. I have a new job. I now work behind one of the lights at Svenska Teatern and last week was my first week. It has been very fun but there is a lot I need to learn so it is a challenge, but I am very eager to learn. It is so much fun and it is a dream workplace for me so I am very much over the moon about it. It will, however, take a lot of my time which I realized last week. It will be my second home for a few weeks forward which means that both this blog might suffer a bit, not to speak of my relationship since I don't have time to see him as much. 

So trying to somehow find a way to also add writing a blog and doing videos seems to be a very hard challenge. That is also the reason why I have decided to start writing this blog in only English because it makes it a bit easier to write and frees up some time. I will however still have a blog where I do write in Swedish, it is over on Ratata and you can find it here if you want to follow it. I will do my best to still do blog posts and videos but it might be a bit slow in the beginning before I really figure out a working system.

But you can still count me as being back.

Det är verkligen längesen jag gjorde ett inlägg om Bette Box och orsaken till det är att jag inte fick förra månadens box alls pågrund av ett misstag som jag gjorde. Men så kan det gå ibland och nu skall vi bara gå vidare och hoppa in i den här månadens box. Som alltid så har jag även filmat en video när jag öppnade den så ifall ni vill se den så kan ni gå hit. Den är på finska dock. 

It has been a minute since the last Bette Box post and the reason for that is that I didn't get the box last month because of an error that I did. But it happens and all we can do is move forward and jump to this months box. As always I have also filmed a video of when I opened this one so if you wanna see that you can do so here. It is in Finnish though. 

Nu när jag tittar på det här innehållet så är jag nog ganska så nöjd med allting. Parfym-testern från Clean kommer definitivt att användas då jag verkligen tycker om deras dofter. Jag är ju lite av en tvätt-freak så rent byke är något av det bästa jag vet. Ny ögonfransböjare är också något jag behövt redan en tid, men bara inte fått köpt, så det var verkligen perfekt att det fanns ett par från Ibero. Nu kan jag kasta bort mina gamla som bara ser hemska ut. Så skönt!

Munskölj är något jag funderat på mycket, alltså är det något jag verkligen behöver eller klarar man sig bra utan. Den här Listerine Zero skall jag nog ta och använda, det kan ju inte skada ändå. Jag har ju tidigare bara använt billiga märken så det skall bli roligt att testa "det äkta". Ni får mera än gärna berätta om ni vet att munskölj verkligen gör skillnad.

Den här gångens sminkprodukt var en primer från Manna Kadar. Jag använder jättesällan någon primer när jag lägger på mig smink. Den här verkar också vara väldigt orange så jag vet inte riktigt om den passar min hudfärg. Men jag skall ta och testa. Den här är troligen den produkten som jag gillar minst i den här boxen.

Någon av er har säkert hört mig klaga över mina mjuka och sköra naglar och även mitt hår som behöver all hjälp den kan få. Well, dessa kosttillskott från Helein kommer definitivt att ätas och hopperligen så gör de under åt åtminstone mina naglar som verkligen behöver hjälp då jag tog bort mina akrylnaglar för en stund sedan. De är så mjuka nu och bara går av.  Det är riktigt jobbigt kan jag säga er.

Jag vet inte hur många gånger jag har sagt åt er eller mig själv att jag skall börja använda mera handkräm, både för att jag har så mycket i lådan men också för att det skulle göra så bra för mina stackars händer. Den här gången kom det ett handkräm från Nivea i en rolig förpackning.Jag skall nog försöka skarppa med handkräm och ha en vid datorn och sedan lägga på varje kväll före sängdags så blir det nog bra tror jag. Skulle ju även kunna kasta en i väskan och ha med.

Sist men definitivt inte minst så har vi nattkräm från Lumene. Detta är verkligen min favoritprodukt i den här boxen då jag har sagt många gånger att jag har massor med dagkräm men nästa inga nattkrämer. Någon har lyssnat på mig! Helt perfekt! Just nu håller jag på och testar Herbalifes Skin, men sen när jag fått dem slut så skall jag ta den här i användning.

All in all so var detta en mycket bra Bette Box. Jag väntar ivrigt på nästa, som faktiskt borde komma vilken dag som helst!

Now that I am looking at all of the products I am pretty happy with this box. The perfume tester from Clean will totally be used since I am a bit of a freak when it comes to clean laundry and the smell so this is absolutely perfect for me. A new eyelash curler is also something I have needed also for a while but just haven't been bothered to get one, so this is really perfect that there was one from Ibero. Now I can throw away my old ones that look gross. So good!

Mouthwash is something I have been thinking about a lot, in the sense that is it really something you need. I am totally gonna try this Listerine Zero, I mean it can't hurt. I have also just used cheaper brands so it is nice to get to try something else. If you can tell me that it makes a huge difference then do tell. 

This time the makeup product is a primer from Manna Kadar. I don't really use primer when I put on makeup. This does also look very orange in so we shall see if I get and use out of this. But I will try it and let you know. This is probably the product I like the least in this box. 

Some of you might have heard me complain about how soft and fragile my nails are and how my hair also needs all the help it can get. Well, these pills from Helein will hopefully do some good. At least my nails really need it since I took away my acrylic nails a while back. They are so soft now and break really easily. It is not fun. 

I don't know how many times I have said to you or myself that I will start using more hand cream, both because I have so many in my drawer and because my hands would probably like it. This Nivea hand cream does really have a cool design. I will try to really do my best and have one hand cream at my desk and one at my bed so that I can put on some before going to sleep. Maybe I could throw one in my bag too. 

Last but not least we have a night cream from Lumene. This is hands down my favorite product in this box since I have said it before that I have a lot of day creams but almost no night creams. Someone has been listening to me! Perfect! Right now I am trying out Herbalife Skin, but after that, I will give this one a go. 

All in all, this was a very good box. I am really looking forward to the next one, which actually should be here any day.
