When we stumbled across Mindy Koenigsfeld’s Instagram, there was no way we weren’t going to ~lightly~ stalk her until she agreed to be featured on TF. Such. A. Babe. And if you’re looking for therapeutic interiors, :O-worthy clothes, and the freshest beauty pics you’ll ever see, we strongly suggest taking a look.
Aside from shelling out an endless supply of inspo, the Chicago-based photographer and content creator of Kind of Luxe spends her time switching between Le Labo scents, swapping beauty tips with her mum, and carrying under-eye masks in her handbag – #dreamgirl. And luckily for us, she’s given us the low-down on the products she’s loyal to. We’ll let Mindy do the talking from here on in.
Le Labo Bergamote 22
“I’ve been a huge fan of Le Labo for a while – I find their scents to be very unique and lovely. I had a bottle of Rose 31 made for my wedding, but I only wear it for special occasions, so I needed a scent for every day. I was then introduced to Le Labo’s Bergamote 22, and I’m obsessed. It has a really fresh and clean scent, and perks me up immediately when I spray it on.”
Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
“I’ve been traveling a lot lately, and jet lag has really messed with my sleep, which then makes my skin a mess! I was looking for good eye products and stumbled upon Skyn Iceland’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. They are heaven-sent! I am absolutely obsessed. I order a new pack of these every other week and always have one in my purse (and another three in my carry-on). They help de-puff and reduce the dark circles I get when I’m lacking in sleep. The cooling feeling when you put them on is magical. I can’t rave enough about these!”
Sunday Riley Good Genes
“I started using Sunday Riley products about 8 months ago, and have been really liking their Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment. So many people raved about it to me, and I finally gave in. I get the hype now! I think it’s really helped clear up old marks on my face and reduce the redness on my cheeks. This is the first product I introduced my mom to that she loved. It made me feel really good that she has handed down so many tips and secrets, and introduced me to products for great skin, and I finally had the chance to share a product with her that I had discovered and that she now loves.”
Glossier Boy Brow
“When it comes to my make-up routine (in comparison to my skincare routine), it is very minimal. Most the time I just leave the house with one product on. That product is my absolutely favourite – Glossier’s Boy Brow in Brown. It’s a creamy wax formula that keeps my brows in place all day, and the added color helps thicken and fill them in. It’s like a one-stop shop for your brows. It’s all you need!”
Aesop Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste
“From a young age, my mom taught me about the importance of skincare. She always said to use products according to my skin needs for that day. I have so many different face washes for different purposes. My absolute favourite, though, is Aesop’s Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste. It’s the perfect exfoliant that isn’t too harsh for my sensitive skin. I like to use it in targeted areas, like around my nose and my forehead, and I’ll mix it with some of my clay masks if my skin really needs an extra scrub.”
