Zeitgeist 4

What happened the last weeks? I’ll give you a short catch-up to my beauty world!

Buys and Rebuys

I like the Lavera Pink Energy Shower Gel very much. It smells really refreshing and energizing in a fruity way, and it contains extracts of pink grapefruit and pink pepper. This was a limited edition and when I wanted to rebuy the shower gel, it was no longer available in most stores. When I finally found a shop that had it in stock, I bought two shower gels and a body lotion as backup. The shower gel lathers very well for a natural one, and mostly after biking to work I enjoyed using it. If you find a store that has some of those left, smell if you like the fragrance!

New Beauty September 2014

In September I got lots of new beauty things. Mostly travel sizes, but also some full size products.


Cattier Perle d’eau, micellar water. This is my second bottle and I absolutely love it. Nothing removes my eye make-up as gentle as this remover.

Full sizes:
Alterra Orange Soap and Sandalwood soap. Soap. I used these for my enzyme peeling soap bars.
Alterra Eyeliner Flashing Star & Liquid Eyeliner. I am not that good at using eyeliner, and mostly I go without. But I want to learn how to use liquid eyeliner, and here I have one with a brush and one with a felt tip.
Benecos Natural Mineral Powder in Golden Hazelnut (the darkest of the 4 colours). Hopefully this will mattify my skin. The colour is a little bit dark, so if it works for my, I think I will buy a lighter tone, too.
Khadi Reetha Powder (soapnut powder). I use this mostly for washing my hair, but it is not as finely ground as I wished it was. I had the washing powder once, now I give the pure soapnut powder a chance.

Travel sizes:
Farfalla Feel Beautiful Travelset. I am so curious about Farfalla. Most of their products are certified organic and vegan, so I will test them. I like the brand, they seem nice as they cover most my requirements that I have on beauty products.
Intelligent Nutrients Volumizing Spray. If I use hairspray twice a month, that is often for me. My conventional hairspray is nearly empty and I wanted to replace it with a greener version.
Khadi Face- and body Oil White Lily Travel Size. This is going to be an experiment for a face oil blend.
Less is More Lindengloss Finishing Spray. This should work together with the hair spray.
Sensena Shower Peeling and Seasalt-Oil-Bath Walnut & Fig. The last salt scrub I bought is long gone, I usually do other peelings.

Trial Sizes and other Stuff:
Ebelin Dupe to Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring: nice hair ribbon that stays in place. It is gentle to my hair and gives hold to my ponytail or bun.
i+m Phyto Balance 24h Moisturizer Trial Size: My skin is super dry on some days, and I want to find a moisturizer that really helps on dry patches and makes my skin smooth and hydrated.
Interdental Brushes to comb through my lashes after I applied mascara.
Sanoll Hair End Moisturizing Cream Trial Size, with goats milk. My hair ends are very dry, I have to moisture them otherwise they will split or break.
Ebelin Shampoo and Massage Brush, never tried a shampoo brush before, it should help to massage oily hair treatments into the roots.

Private Purchase

On the photo above you see products that have been sent to me, too:

Indemne Gimme Clear! Travel Size: Dry oil to help with blemishes, whiteheads and acne discolouration.
Indemne Gimme Smooth!: Dry oil to help with cellulite and orange skin.
Maybritt Krewald MK organic pure aronia A (aroniajuice): Juice with high ORAC level to protect skin.
Maybritt Krewald MK organic pure oil W (foodstuff oilblend): “Beauty begins inside” is Maybritt’s slogan, that means that you treat your skin with good oils from the inside. I take oil and juice stirred together as a shot every morning.
