Today I’m showing you the latest three additions to my natural skin and hair care stash. And they’re real multitaskers, because the three products that I’m reviewing today can all be used in more than one way. Continue reading to find out how I like to use my new products!
Safeas Organic Orange Blossom Water Vitalizing Toner Spray
The Organic Orange Blossom Water Vitalizing Toner Spray from Safeas is an organic revitalizing facial spray with Egyptian neroli blossom that refreshes the skin and boosts your mood. You can use the spray as a final step in your cleansing routine, or as a way to freshen up during the day. I personally use the spray in the mornings and the evenings after cleansings and before putting on my skin care products. The smell of the Organic Orange Blossom Water Vitalizing Toner Spray – seriously, I think the name should be longer – is really lovely. It smells fresh, citrusy and just very happy and pleasant. The spray also has a lovely refreshing effect on my skin. So it’s definitely a boost, both for your skin and mood. Is this product a must-have and do I really need it in my cleansing routine? Probably not. It’s the kind of product that you use because of the wellness aspect of it, just to pamper yourself a bit. And why not? We deserve a little treat every now and then :-)
Price: 18.50 CHF at Thetwistshop.
Safeas Organic Tamanu Repair Oil
A soothing and quickly absorbing face oil for sensitive skin with Polynesian Tamanu nut oil. The oil is packed with calophyllic acid and neo-flavanoids that boost the skin’s regeneration and to support its protection function. The oil can be used daily as an alternative to moisturizer, or as an intensive care treatment. I personally don’t use the oil every day, but I use it twice a week after scrubbing and exfoliating. The oil is light, not very thick and it gets absorbed quickly, even by my oily skin. So the product doesn’t feel heavy at all. My skin feels soft and fresh, and it can still breathe. The Safeas Organic Tamanu Repair Oil is definitely more than just a feel-good product. I can really tell the difference when I use it, and that says enough.
Price: 38 CHF at Thetwistshop.
Bio Planète Virgin Coconut Oil
Coconut oil, are we going to cook? Nope, sorry. Not everything that you normally use in the kitchen can only be used there. Olive oil for example is a great waterproof make-up remover. And brown sugar and honey make a lovely body scrub. And also coconut oil can be used for more than just cooking. This 100% virgin coconut oil from Bio Planète can be used as a night cream, a hair mask, lip balm, hand and foot cream, make-up remover, shaving oil, cleansing oil, on insect bites, on scars, as a deodorant, you name it. Below 25°C coconut oil is solid, so it’s a butter. But when you heat it up, it becomes liquid and turns into an oil. You can use the product cold or warm, depending on what you want to use it for, but I always use it warm.
Those of you who read my blog post about Bali Cosmetics might remember that I started with hot oil hair treatments. If you want to know more about those treatments you can read the blog post again here. Once I had used up my two hair oils from Bali Cosmetics, I started using this Virgin Coconut Oil from Bio Planète for my treatments. You can use any oil you want for hot oil hair treatments (olive oil, jojoba oil, sesame oil, you name it) as long as it’s 100% virgin. But coconut oil is definitely a great choice for anyone. It’s really good for dry or damaged hair and it gives your hair a real moisture and shine boost. Coconut oil is one of the heaviest and greasiest oils, though, so make sure that you don’t overdo it and always shampoo it out completely. I know that there are lighter oils that are more suitable for my greasy hair type, but the smell of this Huile de coco is so lovely that I’m completely sold on it. And it’s super cheap, so that helps too.
