Skins Cosmetics – New Store Opening

If you weren’t convinced yet, you for sure will be after reading this post. Ghent is the place to be. In general! It always has been (love my city ^_^) but it is even more now with all the new shops popping up like mushrooms!

Newest kid on the block:

Skins Cosmetics


The 1st store opened 16 years ago in The Netherlands. 12 shops later, they found their way to Belgium. More specific in Ghent @ Post Plaza, Korenmarkt.


There aren’t many cosmetic stores that sell Niche brands. Aside from Fin du Jour there are none in Ghent. So it will definitely catch on! Perfumes, make-up & skincare. You won’t walk out empty handed. But I can’t guarantee the same for your wallet…

The brand list is endless but I must warn you, not all will be available. BUT you can order online (or in store) get it delivered in store AND pay in store 😊


Some brands are 😱! Have you heard of Le Labo before? Diptyque? Eve Lom? Estelle & Thild? Christophe Robin? Coola Suncare?

I am known with Rosebud Salve (my favorite!), Molton Brown, E.Coudray & Grown Alchemist.

And many will be over enthousiastic for Laura Mercier, and so many more…


I read the store was opening tomorrow, Saturday, but since I was in the neighbourhood Wednesday I wanted to sneak peak. Shelves were being filled and it seemed great! I was afraid to take some pictures (as usual) but I found some pictures on their site.


I asked for some information and I was immediately allowed to buy something since someone had to be the 1st customer ^_^ (Yeay!) They were so friendly & such a great service even when they weren’t officially open yet. What I bought is still a little secret since I’ll review the product later this week so keep an eye on the blog if you’re curious! Tip: Summerrrtime!


Top 5 to buy @ Primark

Many women lose control by hearing the word ‘Primark’. They literally go insane.
I used to be one of them, the day I found out Primark was coming to my hometown, Ghent. About 4 years ago I guess?!? But I never entered a Primark. I just heard the stores are amazing & I knew I wanted to be the store manager… Until I visited a Primark IRL for the very 1st time… Such a disappointment!

But I understood why Primark is that cheap rightaway. No good looking store (it looks like a factory in my opinion), no marketing or publicity at all, no online shop,… And of course they order like a million pieces of everything because they get sold anyway…

Primark is bad for the economy… People compare. And if Primark can sell their fashion this cheap, they expect other brands to do so as well. People 😍discount, no denying there.

But I’m not a party pooper! It’s your right to ❤ it!
I wont deny, you’ll find Primark in my dressing room. But just a few pieces.

Love it or hate it!
