Are organic cosmetics better than the “normal” ones? What are the better products to protect my skin?
When using a product every single day, you kind of end up asking yourself these kind of questions without really knowing where to find some solid answers.
So I decided to try some more natural products, some of them even organics, based on ingredients known for their positive effects and which will not over-nourrish my skin.
Aloe vera gel from Hübner (only in organic stores)
Since I don’t really need any moisturizer but still get some dry spots from times to times, I like to use this aloe vera gel, without any oils or fat ingredients. Aloe Vera is a very hydrating and soothes the skin. The gel formula is very refreshing as well.
Eau de Beauté from Caudalie (in pharmacies)
I love this product. Very refreshing and great after removing your make-up and to awaken the skin in the morning. It kind of replaces a moisturizer for me. The grape juice extracts strengthen the skin and make it look fresher.
Purifying mask from Annemarie Börlind (in organic stores)
The texture is confusing since it feels like it’s very fat when applying it, but it feels great afterward. My skin felt smooth and more pure than before. I recommend leaving it until the make has almost completely disappeared. Then rinse it off with a washcloth and warm water. The scent is not super great, but it’s ok.
Mint tea shower gel from Korres (at JACKS Beauty Department)
Love the scent! It doesn’t dry out the skin and give a nice fresh kick in the morning.
In the end, it’s nice feeling using products that bring something positive to your skin without any side effects (overly dried or oily skin).
