I was born with the sense of smell of a hunting dog, no seriously, I was… For me, its always been extremely important how good or how bad things smell, that could be one of the reasons why I have my apartment flooded with scented candles, or are obsessed with buying scented creams, perfumes, body wash and the list goes on. The thing is, in my experience, what smells good, is not necessarily good when it comes to skin care. I guess some brands put a lot of effort into making something smell good, that they forget that the actual purpose of a moisturizer -for example- was to, humm, I don’t know, moisturize?
My problems always comes down to the fact that I let myself get fooled with things that smell good, rather than things that work, just because scent is everything to me… On a trip to Stockholm a few months ago, I coincided with the opening of & Other Stories and Carolina and I spent literally over 2 hours browsing the store up and down. They also have a beauty and skincare section which I was very skeptical about -to be honest- and left the store empty handed (ok, I lied, I might have taken a skirt, a visor, a necklace, a…..a lot), or more like I didn’t take any beauty products.
After a few days, I tried one of those creams at a friends place and man did they smell good! So that got me hooked and then -as you do-, I went back and got me some.
I’ve been using it for about 2 months and I am trying to keep an open mind, it does smell good, really good, but does it do the work? So far, SO GOOD! Finally!
