theCream Skincare and Colostrum- Nature's Superfood for Skin

Only recently I discovered  theCream Skincare by thePinkCowBrand or better say they discovered me on Instagram and because they heard I never tried Colostrum in skincare before they offered me the opportunity of trying out 2 products of my choice. I decided to go for the Age Defying Eye Serum and the Comforting Facial Cleanser.

When it comes to skincare or even makeup, I am really selective and careful with what I put on my skin for the simple fact that I don't want or need any toxins in my blood via my skincare regimen.

theCream Skincare is the only biologically alive skincare in the world and is based on nourishing and energizing skin cells with nature's most powerful life-giving New Zealand Colostrum.

      What exactly is Colostrum ?

Well, colostrum is a form of milk produced by mammals (yes, including humans ) to help provide all the essential ingredients needed in the first 72 hours of life, in other words : the starter of life.
Colostrum could be considered the oldest and the most researched super food in all human history. Its health, beauty and healing effects were recorded in the Ancient Egypt, at the Ayuverdics in India and even by the old cattle tribes in Africa. I really had no idea but with blogging comes knowledge, the main reason why I love blogging!
In modern times, there is an abundance of publish research showing colostrum's health and healing properties, including the topical application for skin, beauty and healing. Colostrum can be found in everything from supplements to high end expensive beauty cream.

Barnängen - Gentle skincare, balanced beauty and living "lagom" in The Netherlands

Barnängen was founded in Stockholm in 1868 by the Swedish wholesaler Johan Wilhelm Holmström and ever since Barnängen has been characterized by genuine and gentle products with a natural and pure feeling. Entire generations of Swedes have used and loved them, making Barnängen one of the most iconic brands in Sweden.

Recently, Barnängen launched also in The Netherlands and products can be found exclusiv in da and dio stores. This article has been sponsored by Barnängen NL 

Barnängen is using a fusion of Nordic-inspired ingredients and the Swedish aesthetic to create products that truly reflect lagom, but what is lagom and how do I live lagom?

NOT TOO LITTLE, NOT TOO MUCH .JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT. This is LAGOM, a sense of  feel good balance.

Five years ago I decided to slow down and live life slow, but not too slow. I started to enjoy little things as well as important ones; to be grateful for everything I have in my life even if I dont have a perfect life. I decided to spend less, to collect moments and not only objects, to find time for meditation, self care and relaxing moments after work. I decided to balance everything in my life, to become more aware and conscious and finding a balance was the key to my happiness. 

Lagom is an concept to live a life in balance and harmony, appropriate but not perfect, a way to live a simpler, fairer, less complicated and more content way of life. You can implement lagom in everything you want, at work, to your wardrobe, to your garden, or your home or even to your beauty rituals. I really believe that lagom needs to be a trend, because it feels so good to be balanced!

I believe in natural beauty but in the same time I believe in aesthetics, self care, relaxing, nourishing, moisturizing and pampering ! I am really happy to be a part of the #barnangenbeauty concept in The Netherlands.

Barnängen believes that beauty comes from when you feel “just right”—confident, authentic, and balanced. Their mission is to provide balanced care for a beautifully balanced skin.
