A Quick look at Skin Philosophy by Palina

I FINALLY got a hold of the full series of skincare from Palina and I am super excited to show you everything!

At the DaisyExpo 2017, we were able to be the first to try Palina’s new skincare line Skin Philosophy. Palina is a Swedish brand created by Make Up Artist Lina Ivarsson. I absolutely love their loose powders and shadows and Lina is an inspiring and beautiful person so I was so excited to get a package sent home to me to try!

/På DaisyExpo 2017, var vi först med att prova Palina nya hudvårdsserien SSkin Philosophy. Palina är ett svenskt varumärke skapat av Makeupartisten Lina Ivarsson. Jag älskar deras löspuder och lösskuggor och Lina är en inspirerande och vacker person så jag var så glada att få ett paket som skickats hem till mig för att prova!

I love the packaging since they are simply white outer packaging but with colorful insides. The tubes themselves are also color coordinated which is seriously genius! I know that Palina has taken extreme care to create the best ingredients and technology. There will be 21 products total so this is just the beginning!

/Jag älskar förpackningen eftersom de är helt vita ytterförpackning men med färgrika insida. Tubarna har olika färger och är sorterat i typ av produkt som är en genius move! Jag vet att Palina har tagit extrem försiktighet med att skapa de här produkterna med bästa ingredienserna och högteknologi. Det kommer att finnas 21 produkter totalt så detta är bara en början!

As you can see, there are 8 products in total including 1 gel, 3 masks, 1 scrub and 3 creams. I found a few of my favorite products from the line already: The Fairy Scrub (495kr), The Rescue me Gel (595kr) and the Calm Down Mask (595kr).

/Som du ser så finns det 8 produkter som inkl. 1 gel, 3 masker, 1 skrub och 3 krämer. Jag hittade några fravoriter redan: The Fairy Scrub (495kr), The Rescue me Gel (595kr) & Calm Down Mask (595kr).

The Fairy Scrub is a mild peeling that has sweet almond oil, Vit A, E, B1,2&6. In addition it also has Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract that works as an antioxidant and is good for sensitive and unclean skin. It works for all skintypes and I love that I can use it from 1 to 5 times a week.. squeeky clean!

/The Fairy Scrub är en mild peeling som har söt mandelolja, vitamin A, E, B1,2 & 6. Dessutom har även fläderblom extrakt som fungerar som en antioxidant och är bra för känslig och oren hud. Det fungerar för alla hudtyper och jag älskar att jag kan använda det från en till fem gånger i veckan .. squeeky clean!

The Rescue me Gel is perfect for calming angry skin and quickly. I have been having issues with stress acne and by just spot applying this product, it has calmed the acne down which is more than any other product has done! You can find glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid.

/Rescue me Gel är perfekt för att lugna ner irriterad hud och snabbt. Jag har haft problem med stress akne och bara spot behandling med denna produkt funkade jätte bra och lugnat ner stress acnen vilket är mer än någon annan produkt har gjort! Du hittar glykolsyra, mjölksyra och salicylsyra i denna!

Calm Down Mask is a deep cleanser and again great for irritated skin or just balancing moisture in the skin. I feel that my skin feels softer and moisturized. In this mask there is Vit C, Jojoba Seed oil and even kaolin.

/Calm Down Mask är en djuprengörings rengöring och återigen riktigt bra för irriterad hud eller för att balansera fukt i huden. Jag känner att min hud känns mjukare och återfuktad. I denna mask finns Vit C, jojoba fröolja och även kaolin.

Have you tried any of these skincare items? Which one are you most interested in?

Summary Sunday: DaisyExpo 2017

What a weekend! Daisy Expo has always been the number one highlight of the year! It’s the first big bang in the winter gloom and this year it is just that extra special because I too am now a part of the Daisy Beauty Gang!

daisyexpo16

I will be starting with Daisy Beauty as their Sales Rep together with Kicki, Sam & Beauty By K. I am very excited for this opportunity (and quite nervous too!) and cannot wait to share my experiences with you all! As for now, my blog will stay here and I will take a look at options if I would like to move to the Daisy Portal or stay on my own domain. Let me know in the comments what you think I should do? 

Anyway on to the more interesting stuff! DaisyExpo 2017! Though I was invited as a blogger, I was able to jump right in and help out! I did of course keep my camera handy though! The first day was lectures and unfortunately I only got to sit in one of them, the rest of my day went to help set up the exhibition for the day after so this post is all about day 2 of the Expo!

Day 2: DaisyExpo 2017

Lets start on the bottom floor!

DaisyExpo 2017

Garnier had the most beautiful flower arrangements! I snapped the whole progression and it was just fantastic to see the final result of the room! They released four new series in the Respons and one of them has Maple extract and castor oil! It says to detangle, revitalize and care so I am super excited to be able to try it out!

DaisyExpo 2017
Akademikliniken was also present with their latest Pure Glow Oil (ca. 1700kr/30ml) and they also had competitions throughout the day! The Pure Glow oil is a highly concentrated Vitamin C that works against early aging and also works on lustre and elasticity.

DaisyExpo 2017

New to this year is Cinq Mōndes! I got in contact with this brand I believe a year or so ago so it was great having them present! Cinq Mōndes Spa Paris is a beautiful French Spa brand which is created by Jean-Louis Poiroux.

DaisyExpo 2017A return was from Kiss with their new Blooming lashes, Fabby Style with their glass nail files, and Vita Liberata with a 10 minute mask… but this time they also had a new brand called AtacheThe brand has 30 years of experience within Dermatology and was founded in 1983 with ASAC pharma.

DaisyExpo 2017

Speaking of Paris, Farao from Dior held mini fragrance trainings in the Diro room. I thought that their worksamples were so freakin exclusive! And not to mention their new Spring Collection is so colorful and all about the Gradations! PS: did you know that Dior has now Boy George and Rami Malek as new faces of Dior?! Mums!

DaisyExpo 2017

Rosenserien was a stand full of smiles! This brand is a swedish organic skincare brand and I love their lipbalms! They have just released the lavender one (again!) and I would love to give that one a try! (Though I do have the other 4 in every pocket and bag haha!)

DaisyExpo 2017Ellos was a newcomer to the Expo and they had a mini living room that was super cozy! They servered these huge gorgeous looking cupcakes too! Makiash also was a part of the Ellos stand and I can honestly say that I have never tried anything from the brand (nor from Ellos for that matter!). I would love to give that loose powder and that highlighter a whirl from Makiash but also the Take a shower products from Ellos Beauty!

DaisyExpo 2017

L’Occitane is a brand I haven’t had all that much contact with but the ladies were so welcoming and the room smelt like a french spa! I loved the tranquility they set up in their room and they were offering hand massages!

DaisyExpo 2017

Another favorite room was Scandinavian Cosmetics with Escada, Tweezerman, Max Factor and even Lacoste! Escada is celebrating 25 years of summer frangraces with their latest: Fiesta Carioca (420kr/30ml)! They also demoed the two new Lacoste L.12.12 fragrances for him and her AND also had the amazing Makeup Artist Tomas Lenneryd who you can see here doing Kicki’s makeup with Max Factor!

DaisyExpo 2017

Also new for this year was Toni & Guy with Alf Sörensen. I have had much contact with Alf Sörensen during my Sephora days and it was awesome to see that they have gotten the haircare brand. The room smelt yummy AND they were also serving scones!

Whew! I hope you all are still with me?

Let’s take the stairs to the second floor!

DaisyExpo 2017

Derma ProMedical is also new and they took bookings- They also had this awesome LED mask that could be used in treatments. You can see Monas Universum trying it out above! They also introduced the Tebiskin products which are new to me so hopefully I would be able to try them out soon!

DaisyExpo 2017
I was so excited to see that Yves Rocher was at the expo this year! They had a beautiful room filled with greens! They had white flowers that decorated around their products and they even took in these awesome Mojito Paralines that looked like dinosaur eggs! Guests also had the opportunity to get their skin scanned at Yves Rocher.

DaisyExpo 2017

Palina was also great to see since I bumped into them at other exhibitions earlier. They worked on new skincare which they then presented at this years expo! How awesome is that? The packaging is so colorful but classy! I had my eye on the Fairy Scrub and the Overnight Mask haha!

DaisyExpo 2017

Olaplex was the perfect lounge area! They spoke of their step 3 (259kr) and the women there were so fun to be around too!

DaisyExpo 2017
Guests had the opportunity in doing a skinscan at Eucerin and set up a new skincare routine! I personally was very interested in their sun products haha! I am obsessed with sunscreen and I saw that they had a 50+ sun fluid (129kr/50ml) that is mattifying for the face and for sensitive skin!

DaisyExpo 2017
Apoteket‘s set up was elegant in mirrored black! This matches their products super well but gosh, a bit difficult to photograph! I have not personally tried their products (yet) but they looked super interesting!

DaisyExpo 2017
GHD had amazing stylists who offered to do some blowouts, here you see Alexander working his magic!

DaisyExpo 2017
Revlon is also a newbie at this year’s expo and I loved that they used the scene in the screening room! They set up and made beautiful curls! Here you can see the beauty Amanda getting her hair done! They recently released their Be Fabulous series!

DaisyExpo 2017
Here you can see Tanja from L.Y.X Cosmetics fixing some Lacqua & La Chrome on Linnea Öst. I personally am obsessed with L.Y.X and love the women and the concept behind the brand.

DaisyExpo 2017
Acasia Skincare is new for me and my (now) coworker Beauty By K wrote about them earlier so I can’t wait to try them out on my skin!

DaisyExpo 2017
M Picaut released the Hydra Lagoon Overnight Mask (499kr/50ml) that has Malachite, Niacimide and Hyaluronic Acid. I was able to take one home on the first day and tried it. It did have a strong scent BUT worked wonders on my extremely tired skin! I need to try it longer before I can completely comment.

DaisyExpo 2017
AnneMarie Börlind released three new masks: Anti-Aging Cream Mask, 2 in 1 Black mask and Hydro Gel Mask! I am seriously needing the latter two!

DaisyExpo 2017
L’Orèal stood for the most out of this world transformation from conference room to Paris Apartment! They even covered the windows to make it look very parisienne AND there was even a parisienne living there during the expo! How cool is that? They released loads of new cleansers, makeup and I am loving the new Botanical Series! I will probably do a separate post showing all these news!

I had an incredible two days and I really hope the guests and exhibitors also had a great time. Let me know what you’d like to see more of. What brand are you looking forward to reading about here?
