Our Favourite After Shower Body Lotions

Monday, October 15th, 2018

What’s the first thing we do when coming out all fresh and scrubbed clean from the shower? After drying ourselves with fluffy towels, of course. Why, moisturize! It’s important to keep all that radiant skin hydrated from head to toe. While it may seem tedious, it certainly doesn’t have to be — especially with all those luscious lotion options out there to choose from. Here are our favourite post-shower body lotions!

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Body Butter

Body butters tend to be super rich in texture which often leaves skin feeling greasy, even hours after it’s been applied. Kiehl’s has a solution to feeling like an overly-lubricated lovely, and it’s with their Creme de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Body Butter. The whipped texture makes it ultra-hydrating without being dense and it absorbs wonderfully! We love it’s heavenly scent too.

Guerlain Insolence Shimmering Body Milk

Guerlain’s body milk is the stuff of beauty gods. It’s beautifully scented (we would expect no less – this is Guerlain we are talking about after all) and the texture is so light it almost appears to melt away on contact with your skin. Don’t let the lightness fool you though – this lotion will leave your skin softer than a new-born. It’s the lotion equivalent of Tom Ford sunglasses, yes, it’s that good!

Greenaby Rose Geranium Hand + Body Lotion

Perfect for dry and cracked skin, Greenaby’s Rose Geranium Hand + Body lotion is not only intensive, but also smells like a dream. Rose with chocolate undertones, to be specific. Made in from all-natural ingredients and based out of Canada, it happens to be all-organic too. Win!

Yu-Be Moisturizing Body Lotion

We might not have heard of Yu-Be here in North America, but over in Japan it’s one of their most trusted skincare brands! And with good reason. Free of sulphates and synthetics, their Moisturizing Body Cream in their original formula is pure and effective enough to use every day.

Burt’s Bees’ Body Lotion

A fantastic drugstore alternative, Burt’s Bee’s has amassed a cult following for their highly useful products. Their Body Lotion is no exception with its sweetly scented lotion containing milk, honey and vitamin E. As with all their products, it’s 99% natural, and made in the USA. We love us some Burt’s Bees.

Size and reputation of SEO agency: it truly matters

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

The size and name of the SEO Companies often seem to be a crucial selection criterion in addition to the references. The size of the agency says only that it is big. But that can only be justified by a large sales team and you have learned that this is more about quantity than quality. Therefore, you should always wonder why the agency has become so big. Maybe the agency is simply an excellent advertising agency or has a professional sales force and a good network.

Where to get the references?

One can find out about the ranking of some agency reference projects for specific search terms if the agency understands their work. SEO projects and their rankings are to be evaluated with caution because you do not always see at first glance how you made it to these rankings and how sustainable you worked. A good way to check the validity of the references is to contact them and to ask for feedback on the work of each agency.References are also important. It is not so much about the good-sounding names but about whether an agency is familiar with an industry. It’s not just about finding a technical solution but it’s about taking the company with you. And that’s where experience within an industry is very important.

Industry know-how of the SEO agency

As an SEO consultant, it is important to work intensively with the industry, the topics and the target groups of the client. Existing industry know-how is an advantage here since one can fall back on existing experiences from the market environment.As hard as the competition is, you can quickly get an overview of the number of indexed pages. If there are only a few hundred or a thousand pages in the Google index, this is usually an indication that the optimization of this domain was not a special SEO masterpiece. And if one deals with the reference projects of the agency, one can also make a first impression about the quality of the backlink profiles.

Conclusion: Determination is the tool

The age and reputation of an SEO agency does not say much about the quality of the work. These agencies have often reached a certain size. As a result they may be like old ships that have become less innovative and inflexible due to retracted structures. If you want to use other services in addition to search engine optimization then you should look for larger agencies with more than two employees and several core competencies. On the website should be apparent at a glance that the desired services such as SEO are among the core competencies of the company.
