What’s happened lately at green conscience? Here is my update.
In the last weeks I tried to get rid of some sample sachets that pile up in my sample drawer. Yes, I admit it: I have a small drawer where I have to stock samples and trial sizes because there are soo much of them. I used up quite a lot and liked some of the products.
Yüli Halcyon Cleanser: I liked it so much that I bought a full size.
Dr. Alkaitis Organic Treatment Oil: This is part of the travel kit which I also bought.
Urtekram Blond Shampoo: When I think about it, I like Urtekram as a brand very much. I also used up a large bottle of shampoo and have stocked some other items. I am not blonde, but the shampoo was even nice for my hair. It is good to know for me that the formulation of their hair care products work for me!
Safeas Fig Hydro Active Moisturizing Cream: Although it contains glycerin – which I tend to avoid – my skin was happy with this sample. The consistency is lighter than most creams I use, so this could be a product for summer.
I used up a lot more samples than these ones, and afterwards my skin showed me that I should get rid of my sample stash. Okay, you won.Continue reading “Zeitgeist #6”
In July and August I bought new products which I haven’t used before. Most things are from online shops as the brands are not available locally.
Alba Botanica:Mineral Terra Tints SPF 15, Blaze
I like having a tinted lipbalm in my handbag. The colour is a brownish rose tone and suits my lips.
Alima Pure:Satin Matte Blush, Honey Rose
This blush fits the colour of my natural blushing but adds some freshness. Powder blush for every day use.
Dizao Organics:Protective Lip Color Balm 207 Oleander
The ingredients of Dizao’s products are really good and I wanted to try another colour. This is, as the Alba Botanica one, a tinted lipbalm. This one is more pigmented, has some shimmer and comes in a natural fresh pink.
This duochrome eyeshadow is likely to become one of my favourites. The main colour is a blueish green, the shimmer is a yellowish green. Zuii uses petal powders as base for the powdery products as eye shadows, powder foundations and blushes.
Skincare and Fragrance:
After using up some trial sizes I purchased the full size of this powdery fragrance. Absolutely love it!
Joik:Alcohol Free Facial Toner with Sea Buckthorn Oil and Aloe
Funny two-phase-product which you have to shake before use. The sea buckthorn oil will disperse in the transparent fluid and then float up again. I own so many serious products that, from time to time, I have to get some not-so-serious stuff. The ingredients are not so bad, though.
Urtekram:Nordic Birch Hand Soap
Usually I use solid soap bars. When I got this in my Blogger BIOty Box I was happy to try something totally new.
Dr. Bronner’s:Peppermint Soap
Travel size of the liquid soap. Didn’t have any Dr. Bronner soaps by now and wanted to try something.
Go & Home:Conditioner
New brand from Austria. They invented products with double function, this conditioner is also a shaving cream. Sounded interesting and I needed a conditioner for the weekend out so I bought this travel size.
Kivvi:Bergamotte & Litsea Body Marmalade
Travel size body butter that smells like summer. Great ingredients, love the design.
Less is more:Tangerine Curl Balm
I wanted to try some of the less is more haircare products and started with the curl balm. Smells nice, feels good.
Living Nature:Deep Cleansing Mask
This single unit trial size cost me 4€ so it’d better be good.
Pai: single use samples of Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream for Dry Sensitive Skin, Echium & Macadamia Replenishing Day Cream for Age-Prone Sensitive Skin, Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser for all Skin Types, Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator
I hope I like them!
Marie W.:Powder Bowl
Tiny powder bowl for mineral makeup. The size is small but fitted for kabuki brushes.
