Happy Monday my loves! Today I want to share with you my current beauty and skincare routine using mostly natural products. It all started a couple of months back, were I decided to change up my routine completely. I tried as good as I could to find all-natural products, which was not that easy first but I quickly managed to find the right products that worked for me best. I am very happy with my choice, my skin looks and feels better from day to day. But I must say, sometimes I go back to non all-natural beauty products, like lipsticks or mascara as I haven't found the perfect alternative yet. But I keep you updated if I find something amazing!
Let’s start with skincare:
Here my go-to brand has to be Lavera, it works just perfect for my skin type and I am very happy with the results. For daily moisturiser I am using the Lavera basis-sensitiv and sometimes I switch back to Grown Alchemist matte balancing moisturiser with acai-berry and borago. For my nightly routine I am constantly using Lavera’s re-energizing sleeping cream and for cleansers I switch between Lavera basis-sensitive an erborian black cleansing oil. I always try new shower gels and shampoo’s, so it never gets boring and I love to discover new scents and formulas. But one I am always go back to is Sebamed “pflege dusche” with pomegranate. It just smells so good! Another brand I highly recommend is Nuxe, I love the Oil huil sèche on my body and roots for some extra care and Lush of course needs to be mention here, with there impressive engagement against animal testings and there with love handmade products. My all-time favorite products are the soap bars, with citrus, coconut and honey flavor!
Moisturise creams are also very important to me even during summer, here I use l’Occitane almond cream and Kiehl's creme de corps most of the time, which are not 100% natural but better as the most of the products you'll find in stores. Deodorants was the most difficult product to find, I’ve gone through so many alternatives but haven’t found the one that worked best for me yet. Sebamed has some good ones, which have won a few quality tests, but the protection doesn’t last all-day, well in my case at least. But just recently Weleda came out with there new deodorant citrus line and I have high hopes for this one to be the one! Let me know what your favourites are, I would be happy to hear your opinion on natural skincare products.
Bareminerals has to be my go-to beauty brand, the variety and the results are always what I expect them to be. I already talked about the complexion rescue cream and the ready powder foundation a few times now, these products just work wonders especially during the warm summer months! Lightweight products with SPF and all-day lasting guaranteed. Jane Iredale with there blush and gorgeouse lipsticks and Nars with the great concealers are just close behind. Not all of the products here mentioned are 100% natural but I am ok with that using from time to time favorites of mine which I just love, like the Dior Beauty products, the finish on my skin is just unbeatable! So I use these kind of products for special occacions or a night out etc. One product I just couldn't live without anymore is honey lip balms such as Burt’s Bees or the one from a beekeeping point of sale in my hometown in Tyrol, made from honeycomb wax, so moisturising and soft. You have to try these and thank me later. ;-)
I hope you liked my Monday beauty talk and I would be happy to hear back from you! I linked all of the products mentioned and if you are in Luxembourg you will find the Lavera and most of the natural products I talked about at the Naturata stores! If you have any questions or other suggestions, then leave me a comment below. Have a good start into the week! Kisses
