Beauty Bit – Cure Acne and Dry Skin With The Instanatural Dead Sea Mud Mask

Instanatural Dead Sea Mud Mask

Thanks to Brandbacker.com, I was able to try another product from Instanatural. I have really been enjoying their products. I’m four products in and have yet to hate one. The product I am reviewing today is amazing. The Instanatural Dead Sea Mask is phenomenal. I love how it tamed my oily skin and made my pimples go away. You can find it on the Instanatural website for $25.77 or Amazon for $24.97 plus Prime shipping. Either way, I love it! I plan on using this product again tonight. Watch the video for more.

Resort 2012

The Resort 2012 collections have been coming out everyday for the past two months or so. I hate Resort and Pre-fall collections because they always come out at sporadic times. I wish they could all come out in like one week or so, or have the designers release their collection photos at scheduled times. The collections that you are about to see are just a few of the ones that I like. All photos are from Style.com. Thoughts?

A Small Guide to Swedish Fashion

This post is from Sofie. She is my new European Correspondent Intern. Please show her some love by commenting on this blog post and checking out her blog OK, Bowtie. Also if you are interested in being a TFAS intern send your resumes and/or writing samples/blogs to me at thefatandskinnyblog[at]gmail[dot]com.

If there is any successful brand from Sweden it is probably Acne. It has absolutely nothing to do with acne at all, it’s just short for Ambition to Create Novel Expressions. Sounds a lot more cheerful, right?

Acne was founded in 1996 as Acne Jeans in Stockholm by Jonny Johansson as a part of Acne Studios. The brand also creates magazines (Acne Paper), toys (Acne Jr) and Movies and TV ads (Acne Film).

Acne is by far the Swedish brand that has actually “made it” outside Sweden (H&M not included) and creates clothes that are typcial for swedish boys and girls to wear, but still it’s something new. Every season they are praised on every fashion blog across the country and their clothes are either flying off their shelves or copied by every budget brand there is.

Of course there’s a lot of successful Swedish brands, but I doubt they have made it internationally as much as Acne has.
