The importance of a healthier, more organic lifestyle is growing every day. You want to give the best for your family, and also for yourself, so you can have a long and happy life with them. The natural approach has to be present in your diet, in your household routine and also in your personal care. In this post I introduce you to some great brands and products that can – literally – save your life.
Recently I started to make some really big changes in my life, – a kind of detox in all aspects of living – including my beauty routine too. After changing our diet, later switching our detergents to organic ones, the next step was to clean our bathroom of “poisonous” toothpastes and shower gels.
Now with slow steps I’m trying to reset my whole makeup collection as well, in order to have a healthier more “eco-friendly” beauty kit and service to my clients. Since I spent a lot of time outsourcing natural, organic and bio beauty and makeup products in the past couple of months, I thought it would be a great idea to share some of my precious findings with you my faithful reader. I hope you will feel the wind of change and start to think twice (and read the ingredients) on your next beauty shopping trip.
Purely Perfect – Cleansing Cream
After reading tons of positive reviews about this innovative hair care product, which -compared to a regular shampoo- has no drying effect and includes the cleansing and the nourishing in the same product (no need for using a conditioner after this) The price is quite high / 236 ml – 40 EUR / so I have to wait for the right moment to purchase, but it’s a total must have in my new healthy bathroom.
Dr. Hauschka – Nude Eyeshadow Palette
Healthy makeup is like the hardest thing on earth to find… This beautiful palette from Dr. Hauschka has all the basic colours that you can ask for a subtle smokey- eye makeup, unfortunately whenever I tried to buy it (EcoPlaza – 27,95 EUR) so far it was always out of stock. Wish me luck, maybe next time I’ll grab it!
RMS – Raw Coconut Cream
“The ultimate organic beauty product! This can honestly be called the best makeup remover ever. Removes even the most stubborn mascara with ease. This multitasking product can also be used as a facial cleanser and skin moisturizer.” says the introduction on skins.nl This has to be a great investment for 42 EUR (236 gr).
Mario Badescu – Silver Powder
During the dry winter months I’ve managed to get some stubborn blackheads mainly on the nose and chin areas, which just doesn’t want to leave no matter how many face cleansing masks or scrubs I use. Then I heard about the “magic power” of the Mario Badescu Silver Powder / 29 ml – 17 EUR / I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
Konjac Sponge Company – French Green Clay Konjac Sponge Puff
I met with this brand first in Dubai, but I never had the chance to try these special sponge puffs. The speciality of these cuties are the cleansing effect (without any additional products) and they’re balancing the natural PH of your skin. “Research in Japan has proven that Konjac Sponges can deeply cleanse without damaging the skin better than any normal wash cloth or even a sea sponge that has been designed for washing. ” The French Clay version is great for combined/oily T-zone skin, available at corponatura.com for 9,99 EUR.
