It’s time for my fall favorites 2017! And not only that; I also have a really cool giveaway for you (Germany only)! Scroll down to the end of this post to get to know more about how to win a set of matcha tea powder and roiboos tea powder from Kissatea – so that you can try those fancy roiboos and matcha lattes that I have been blogging about the other day (you can find the post here) 😉
But before getting there, let me share some of my current favorites with you guys!
This is my absolutely favorite toner right now. I love spray toners and I love everything rose and this mist combines both. I only recently got to know the brand Whamisa from South Korea and they definetly are super intersting. Why? Because they work with fermented plants! Fermentatation is all over the place when talking about health food but have you heard about it in the cosmetics area too? For me Whamisa was the first brand that brought my attention to the fact that fermentented plants are equally good for our skin as they are for our gut.
The Damask Rose Petal Mist does not contain any water but only high quality ingredients such as fermented dandelion and lotus, it smells amazing, is super refreshing, and leaves my skin with a nice clean and refreshed feeling.
For everyone who likes to spend a few extra euro on really good natural and organic toners: this is one a must try!
I haven’t blogged much about store bought chocolate on my blog so far. That is mainly because most ready made chocolate is just not made for me; too much added sugar, low quality cocoa beans, additives, or even cows milk. However, Original Beans is different!
Actually, you may or may not know that the cacao tree is infused with flavours from the environment in which it grows. This is why Original Beans travels into the rarest places on earth to bring the most original bean flavours from wild cacao trees to their costumers. Not only that, they are also planting one tree for every chocolate bar sold! This is something I find absolutely AMAZING.
Oh and yes, the chocolate tastes beyond wonderful. I was never a fan of dark chocolate and when I make my own chocolate I always add loads of almond butter to it, however, the Original Beans chocolate is really really delicous. Actually the most delicious I have ever tasted!
Massages are the best, aren’t they? In case you are lucky and have a best friend, boyfriend or husband who is willing to give you a massage every now and then, then you know that a massage with a well smelling massage oil makes a good experience become a perfect highlight of the week. My husband is not like super into massages but sometimes I am lucky 😉
On all other occasions I actually love giving me foot massages all by myself. It improves blood circulation and refrehes my entire body.
There are loads of great massage oils out there and I am sure you have a few favorites too!? One of my favorites is the massage oil by fair squared, not only because it works and smells great but also because I like the philosophy behind fair squared, being an all vegan, natural, fair trade, and halal company.
Ever since I stopped eating refined sugar two years ago (two years already? Wow how time flies) I also stopped eating marmalade. And I did miss it sometimes. This is why I was super happy to find that there are more and more companies popping up that are making 100% fruit marmalades or marmalades that are sweetened with only a little bit of agave or apple syrup. Two of the ones I liked best so far is Naturya and The Fruit Tree.
Naturya is making marmalades with superfoods such as goji berries and maca powder, which are sweetened with agave syup. The Fruit Tree is using mostly regional fruits and sweetens with apple syrup. Both brands are amazing when you are looking for high quality refined sugar free marmalades.
In case you are now saying “another high end cosmetics product?” I want to tell that I actually never really used high end natural cosmetics but rather the “normal” kind of natural cosmetics and they do work really good for me. However, I know that many women out there like to treat themselves with high end cosmetics and I can relate to that to some extent to. I just love this feeling of spoiling myself with something extra special. For those of you who are intersted in high end cosmetics, I want to inspire you to invest in natural and organic choices. When you are ready to spend a lot of money in a good serum or toner anyway, then better choose a product that is not harming your health with chemicals or pesticides (which unfortunatly even the most expensive conventional products often contain). It makes sense, doesn’t it?
Anyway, so I tried this serum from Master Lin and I love it a lot. I actually got super curious about the entire line and will make a more detailed review post sometime soon. For now let me just tell you that all Master Lin products are inspired by traditional Chinese medicin and contain ingredients such as gold which is said to energize the skin. Witch hazel, that is also contained in this serum decreases irritation which makes this serum also a great after shave for both men and women.
Who else is loving the scent of vanilla and lavender? It is one of the most comforting scents for me and I LOVE taking a hot bath with a few drops of vanilla and lavender essential oils. Fortunately, Primavera has a whole line of products combing lavender and vanilla.
The pillow mist can be sprayed on your pillow at night but I also like to use it as an air spray before going to bed. The essential oil blend in the small flacon can be used for aroma lamps, to be put on a wet towel that you place on a warm heater (so that the scent can spread around the room) or as an add on to your bath oil. Mine is almost empty already and fall did not yet even start for real 😀
Finally there is another favorite of mine: matcha and roiboos latte! You may have noticed that there is a lot of matcha going on on my blog recencelty :D? Well I used to drink a matcha every now and then since around two years already, but it is only this fall that I really fell in love. In love to an extent that I feel sad when I do not hug my matcha latte every day, and where I start thinking of it every five minutes as soon as the afternoon is turning into night and I still didn’t have my daily cup of this healthy green gold.
