In the last weeks we did this segment a little bit diferent, but today we are going back to our old ‘It’s new and we want to try’. We are going to see some new products (at least for me) and hopefully with a ‘not so long introduction’. On a side note, if you still didn’t make all you Christmas shop, then maybe some of these products will help you.
Have you started to think about your new year resolutions? I still didn’t. Or a better question: Have you full fill all your 2017 resolutions? I didn’t.
Well, at least by now I know that I need to add a few old resolutions… maybe 2018 will be the year that I accomplished all of them.
If you asked me last year, I never thought that I would start a blog nor that it would be so amazing. Of course, the ‘Blof life’ has ups and downs but when we do what we like, we start to see more the ups than the downs. I have absolutley sure that Joana agrees with me.
Here I am drifting.
Sorry. Anyway, I promised a short introduction, so here it’s our choices for this week…
(Disclaimed- this is not na ad, sponsored and does not contain any affiliate links. All products were chosen by us and we didn’t try them, so we can’t give you our opinion on the efficiency. these are products that we want to try).

Drunk Elephant | T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum
This night serum contains 12 percent AHA/BHA that refines and resurfaces dull skin, lifting dead skin cells away by gently dissolving the glue that holds them to the surface. I found this serum very interesting because they promise to deliver an effective chemical exfoliation without the harsh side effects like dryness or sensitization. In theory, fine lines, wrinkles, excess oiliness and the pore size will appear diminished.
