Meet Kristin Seregina, this month’s 20th Anniversary Competition winner! We had a chat to her about some of her favourite things, and how she felt when she found out she’d won $2,000 of Linden Leaves! How did you feel when you found out you had won this month’s draw? I literally couldn’t believe it for a while – it’s the first time I’ve won something in a lottery or draw. I was extremely happy, just sitting and smiling, it must have looked pretty hilarious but I didn’t care – I was the winner! 🙂 Tell us a little more about yourself? I’m 28, I live in Auckland with my husband. I’m also a very passionate software developer and like everything related to tech and science. What are some of your favourite things? Natural beauty with everything it might imply. I love traveling, nature walks and hikes. Sometimes just watching the ocean is enough. I also like cooking healthy vegetarian dishes, reading books, and shooting arrows at the Auckland archery club. What is your skincare routine? My husband calls me a “beauty maniac” and he is correct to some extent. I love skincare products and never skip makeup removal (even if it’s 3 am in the morning!), cleansing, toning and moisturising. I always use masks 1-2 times a week. I also have pretty thin skin around eyes so a good cream for this area is a must have. And oils! My skin adores oils in different combinations. There was a period in my life when I was experimenting and playing with pure essential and carrier oils, making my own blends. Some of them worked very well. But with time I came to understanding that blends made by professionals work better and it’s a huge time saver! Since that time I use only natural, preferably organic and cruel-free cosmetics and I can see huge improvements in my skin quality and texture. What is your favourite Linden Leaves Product? Both masks – I’ve been buying them for more than a year so far. I love to use them in combination: firstly purify my skin with the Clay Cleansing Masque and then make it soft and comfortable with the Moisture Replenishing Masque (my face literally drinks it up in a couple of minutes!). I can’t choose my favorite, they work perfectly together for me. Be sure to stay subscribed to our newsletter for 4 more chances to win $2,000 worth of Linden Leaves products!
