Lovely Review: Glov – Removing Mak-Up Without Chemicals

review, beauty, glov
Glov – A glove that removes makeup in an ecological way, using only water.

Fibres 100 times thinner than a human hair remove make-up with micro precision.

Skin as smooth as rose petals? Glov promises to help!

The two sizes Comfort (rectangular) and On-The-Go (small).


My least favourite part of the day is to get ready for bed. I must look like a grumpy panda while I desperately try to get rid of my make-up. It's not my intention to insult pandas, but their look just doesn't suit me at all, and I ask myself if there is no gentler way to get a fresh and clean face. Then Glov came and promised help, thanks to its advanced micro-technology that works without chemicals and residues.

Glov is a patented cosmetic accessory that claims to be the world's best make-up removal. Its special micro fibre is perfect for any skin and works as a magnet on make-up. No matter how strong your mascara or lipstick is, glove removes it while it helps to maintain the natural hydrolipidic barrier of your skin.

All you need is to apply water to your Glov and remove your make-up with a circular motion. After use, you can wash Glov with soap and let it dry. Glov is reusable for up to three months.

Glov comes in two versions: Comfort is perfect for home and can be used as a home spa accessory. On-the-Go takes up almost no space in your luggage and is made to be your new travel companion.


My experience with Glov

"This is just too good to work" was my first thought when I heard about Glov. Could the times of burning eye makeup removers be over now and forever? When I opened the packaging, I was surprised how soft the glove is. I applied warm water to it for a reflexing effect and instantly had to think of those lovely smelling towels you get at Asian restaurants after eating. The makeup disappeared quite fast. Just my mascara tried to resist because I don't like to rub around my eyes. But with a little bit of patience this was solved.

Afterwards, my skin felt matte, clean and very smooth. The experience of having just nothing on the skin was (and still is) amazing and very new to me. I just wanted more. The only thing I disliked is the procedure of washing out the Glov with soap. It takes a lot of soap and patience, and it's almost impossible to keep it perfectly white.

I am testing Glov for a week now and day after day I get more fond of it. My skin feels very smooth and either if I imagine or not, I have the feeling that especially the area around my eyes feels less stressed then when I use a makeup remover. I'll definitely keep using this product!

Why I Buy All the Quirky Stuff

Melissa shoes, high heels and socks
Every cute look needs jelly shoes and cute socks.


My wardrobe must be the dream of every five-year-old girl: There are boxes full of fascinators, loads of flowers, pompoms and novelty handbags in fruity shapes. Not to forget a whole cupboard full of Barbie-like jelly high-heels.

Some not fashion-conscious people might think I buy my jewellery and cutie-things for a few quids in cheap stores, but they are completely wrong. What an insult! Learn now and forever: There are worlds between cheap crap and quirky perfection. Kitsch isn't always just kitsch, and there is nothing more exciting than buying the right kind of it. It's worth every penny to buy something that makes the heart beat faster.

Just because I can spend a lot when I'm excited doesn't mean that I'm a lavish girl: I am reluctant to spend money on some things, even if they would make my life easier. For example, I'm still using an iPhone released almost in the stone ages. Couldn't I get a new one instead of craving for another shiny Maude studio bag and an even bigger Pearls & Swine fascinator? Yes, I could, but where is the joy in buying a new phone?  I want to buy something I can stare at for hours because I love it so much.

A new phone doesn't fulfill the criteria at all: Everybody has one, and they all look nearly the same. It might be faster than the one I have, but it will not come with abilities like an app to create rainbows on the walls of my rooms or an instant glitter-up-my-life function. A new bag has the power to make me squeak and jump into the air on the other hand. So it's an easy decision how I'd prefer to spend my hard earned money!

I go for things that give me a piece of this -being-in-wonderland-feeling and takes me out of the everyday routine. I think this is what we are all craving for in the end.

How do you like this look lovelies and what do you think about spending money on quirky things?

Oh, my: It's already the middle of June and I didn't manage to post a fashion favours post for May. Recently I struggle a lot to keep up with my blog schedule. There is just so much going on at work, and very often I come home almost too tired to lift a finger. Do you know this feeling when everything you desire is to sleep?

I decided to not post a fashion favourites post a month anymore, but as soon as I have a selection of looks you shouldn't miss. Today this moment has come and what a gorgeous selection I have for you!

What I like best about my fashion favourites is that they show, how international inspiration has become thanks to all the cool blogs out there. Today's looks are from the UK, Canada, the Netherlands, India and Australia. All those bloggers approaches to fashion are very different, and this is what I love about them.

I think the secret of style is to stay open-minded, absorb a wide variety of inspiration like a sponge, and never stop trying new things!

How do you like this looks lovelies and who is inspiring you most?

How Colourful Hair May Affect Your Career

Nobody ever complained about flamingos being pink, why should it be different with girls?

It shouldn't be a contradiction to have colourful hair and work in the job you're qualified for.

Last advice of the day: Invest in good shoes and cool glasses. They will bring you far.


Pink haired girls do not look professional, are offensive and will have no serious career! While we speak with holograms, have robots hoovering our homes and even transplant whole faces, mankind has a serious problem: There are a few troublemakers disturbing the introspective society with their unnatural hair colours. What a scandal!

Jessica Chelsey wrote a great post about the difficulties of finding a job with colourful hair and inspired me to talk about this topic too. Jessica dyed her gorgeous blue hair back to dark because she was urged to by an employer. Since then she doesn't feel like herself and sees it as discrimination to be forced to change her appearance in this way. When you consider how hard mankind fought for freedom during its whole history, colourful hair sounds like a ridiculous thing to raise tempers, don't you agree?

My experience as a girl with a candy floss mane is, that growing a thick skin is the price for having your dream hair. People are making jokes about my hair, children are screaming "Katy Perry" whenever I appear on the street and my mother had a very hard time getting used to have a pink-haired daughter instead of a blond angel.

Sometimes it feels like my pink hair is what the red flag is to a bull in the arena. Some people overslept the takeover of rainbow hair by fashion and still believe, you have to be either a punk or a goth to dye your hair any other colour than a mousy brown.

But, and here comes the but: In my experience my hair was never in the way of my career. Part of it might be because I work in a creative job and this gives me a certain freedom to look the way I choose. But it's also because there are amazing people out there who are capable of distinguishing the skills of a person and her hair colour. A big thank you to my bosses at this point; you are amazing in counting on what matters: My qualifications. I work as hard as any blond or black-haired girl if not harder.

As head of design of a branding company, I meet a lot of clients, not all of them the most fashion forward people. But nobody ever complained about a pink-haired girl in a sea of suits and I am proud of every client who is intelligent enough to know that hair colour doesn't destroy brains. Having the job I am qualified to AND my pink hair makes me happy and this in turn makes me do a better job.

I think the world is ready for a gang of colourful girl bosses in 2015! Follow me, everybody of you shall be a drop of colour. We can achieve change together and stand for more tolerance and open-mindedness. The day is close when everybody laughs about colourful hair being an issue at all!

Lovely Trend: Your Handbag Is Your Best Friend

cute handbags, fluffy bags, bags with eyes
Furry Backback  –  Cat Pouch
Shark Bag  – Yellow Keychain  – Rainbow Coloured Keychain  – Owl Backpack
Monster Choupette Bag  –  Flying Pig Handbag

Are you lonely sometimes or just in the need for more cuteness in your life? Then these bags and keychains are waiting for you to keep you company! One is cuter than the next; my dream is to have all of them and start a little zoo of pretty creatures.

Life is too short for boring bags! Carry around some joy and never grow up entirely! Your inner Peter Pan will agree and have a lot of fun, carrying a furry creature or a hungry shark with you and have that perfect "what-else" expression on your face.

I think cute bags hold kind of a precious super power: They can make even the grimmest people smile. Just observe the reaction of people on the street when somebody with a flying pig on his shoulder crosses and you will agree.

Which one of those bags is your favourite?

A Colour Bomb Has Wiped Out My Words

YRU, rainbow shoes, platform sandals
Rainbow feet may cause a sudden rush of inspiration, let's try!


While I look like a Carmen Miranda version for beginners (or intermediate if the beholder is generous with me) I don't have an idea what to write and stare at the screen. A colour bomb, but no explosion of words. Oh hello, writers block, I thought I'd never see you at my doorstep, but after three and a half years of blogging you finally found me. You even brought a gift: An inexistent idea of a topic to chat about, how lovely!

Is anyone interested in the musings of a fashion blogger or are you just here for pretty pictures? Does somebody even realise if I just use dummy text? Let's make a test: If you read this, comment with "pink poodle". Anybody? Please, please, please. You'll be my ultimate hero if you tell me what topics you'd be interested to read about here.

Until then, I continue my search for the words I lost: Does it help to make a handstand? Maybe I better don't try, shame on unathletic me… Half a day later: I cooked some homemade tortellini, tidied up my flat and repotted plants. Still no single word is written on my blank page, but at least my home benefits from this misery. Can it be so difficult to find a few words? No novel with a 1000 pages required so come on Sara!

The next day: Must have fallen asleep while trying to write something and finally I give up. May the words reappear till the next post. Enjoy the colourful look in the meanwhile and appreciate that I talked rather visually than linguistically.
