Guys, today is the day: it’s time for my ultimate favorites, the crème de la crème of 2017! I just want to take the time to list all the products I can say down from that it’s my must-haves. Today I tell you which products you should have, my ultimate recommendations. Read on quickly if you want to know my favorites for the whole year 2017.


For me, 2017 was the year of skin care. I have tried a lot of products, and also discovered a lot of fine products. I became acquainted with brands that I had not heard of, and also with products from brands that I was already a fan of. I have selected 9 brands / products that I am 100% behind.

1. Uncover Skincare, especially their Vitamine A serum

It has been almost exactly a year since I first came into contact with the products of Uncover. Uncover is the facial care line of Doctor Jetske Ultee, and it really is a line that stands for transparency and healthy skin. Uncover is undoubtedly one of my favorite skincare brands. I especially liked the Vitamin A serum this year, I almost had to cry when the bottle ran out. But all products are fine, so I will definitely place an order again soon.

2. Le Petit Marseillais Express Body Spray

I got to know the Express Body Sprays of Le Petit Marseillais and I use them every day. They are so easy, they attract quickly and smell nice. Available at the pharmacy! Read my extensive review here.

3. Ikari Skincare

Ikari opened a new store in Ghent this year, and I went to visit it. When I left I received a few products that I could try, and they are so nice! I also fully support their philosophy, they really want a perfect skin for everyone. At the moment there are a lot of Ikari products in my bathroom, I am so happy about it.

4. Clephar

Clephar is a Belgian brand that is available at the pharmacy. I was allowed to try out a number of products, and they immediately came to my list of favorite brands. I really have a top 4 of the best skin care brands, and Clephar is there.

5. Juhldal PSO Speciallotion N°11

Juhldal has recently become available at Ethos, so the products are now even more easily available. This PSO Specilotion 11 works slightly exfoliating, keeping my skin clean and hydrated.

6. Glamglow Glowstarter

If my skin is dull, I have the ideal tool to add some glow to my look. I smear a little bit of the Glamglow Glowstarter over my full face, and I look like I’m beaming from the inside. Love it!

7. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

I LOVE oil, and this DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is hands down the best cleaning oil I have ever tried. He cleans my skin thoroughly, but leaves no taut feeling. He removes even waterproof mascara easily. Delicious, this!

8. Doctor Babor

I was allowed to try out Doctor Babor products a few months ago by getting a wonderful facial treatment. I find the products all fine, they always give my skin a boost.

9. Jeunesse Ageless

This serum evoked a lot of reaction when I shared my mom’s before and after photos. It is a kind of cream that makes your skin contract – or something – and effectively removes lines and wrinkles. To emphasize it again: no Photoshop was involved!

Makeup is my big love, and I have made myself almost every day the past year, haha. There are many products that I use with love, but these are my ultimate favorite products.

1. Jane Iredale Purepressed Powder Blush in de kleur Clearly Pink

Yes, this blush is clearly pink, but he is so beautiful on the cheeks! He really radiates my skin, as if I radiate health. Definitely my favorite blush of the year.

6. Les Couleurs De Noir F-OXY Mascara

I test so many mascaras, so if a mascara is my favorite, it certainly means that it is really good. The black mascara from Les Couleurs de Noir gives my eyelashes volume, length and curl, and also stays super good. This is available at the pharmacy.

I actually have a lot of different hair products that I really like to use, but there is one product that I want to do a shout-out. My favorite shampoo of the year 2017 is the OGX O2 Gravity-defying & Hydration shampoo.

Other things

1. St. Moriz Self Tanning Mousse

Everyone is always so scared of self-tanning, but with the St. Moriz Self-Curbing Mousse you just can not do anything wrong. I never have stains or stripes, my color is very natural and besides, it is also very budget proof and you can buy it at Kruidvat.

2. Beautyblender

All shapes and sizes of the Beautyblender. It works so easily and gives my makeup a beautiful, natural look. Really a must-have!
