My boyfriend had a last-minute short trip to Germany last week and I told him that I wouldn’t want anything beauty-related. I love Germany and their cosmetics, there is such a big variety but I’ve accumulated so much in the past few months that I wanted first to use up what I already have.
However, he decided to get several things for me to try, most of them are body products.
We’re going to a much warmer place next week (basically, every place is much warmer than Norway), so he decided to pick some sun care products. Eucerin Sun Creme SPF 30 for Dry Skin is going to be his sun protecting face product because I think I’m going to rely on my CC creams, primers and so on.
For body, there will be the Piz Buin Sun Sensitive Skin Lotion SPF 30 and the Piz Buin After Sun Soothing and Cooling Moisturising Lotion. Haven’t tried any of these, so we shall see. We’re not going to be sunbathing but the trip would involve a lot of standing/walking in the sun and my boyfriend has very light skin that burns easily. I’m a bit more lucky and straight away get tanned without having the painful feeling.
Then he wasn’t sure what to pick from DM’s brand Alverde because I haven’t tried so many products from them but I’m always curious. At the end he got a Nettle and Lemon Balm Shampoo. I love herbal-based products and nettle shampoos used to make my hair very shiny when I was younger, so I’m curious to try this one out. As you may know, Alverde‘s products are using ingredients from certified organic agriculture, they’re without silicones, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances and dyes. I’m not a big fan of their make-up line but their skincare and body products are often a good choice.
Another product from Alverde is the Avocado and Shea Butter Repair Hair Mask and this one looks so familiar to me. Maybe I’ve used it years ago but I don’t remember. It also contains Vegetable Keratin, so both – the shampoo and the hair mask are vegan products.
The Schauma 7 Herbs Shampoo is completely unknown to me, sometimes I like their shampoos, sometimes they are a total miss for me, so I’m curious to see if this one would be good for my hair.
I haven’t talked about intimate washes so far and I actually think girls should mention it more often because it’s really important to use an appropriate product for the delicate area and there is nothing to be ashamed of. I’m a fan of the Sagella washes but I’ve always been curious about Sebamed because many people are sharing good reviews on their products. So, I will finally try it.
There’s also a face mask from Sebamed and it’s the one with Camomile, so it must be really calming and soothing and the sachets are going to be perfect for travelling.
I’m really excited about the body washes that my boyfriend picked for me. I love every body wash from Kneipp that I’ve tried and just take a look how pretty this Watermelon and Mint one looks! It would be great for the summer days.
The L’Occitane Bonne Mère Peach Shower Gel smells absolutely divine and is enriched with peach extract.
There’s one more product from L’Occitane because I love their body range and it’s their Verbena Body Lotion. My favourite was the one with roses from 4 different countries but I can’t find it and I’m not sure if it hasn’t been discontinued. Hopefully, this one will be just as good.
Then my boyfriend wanted to find something from the make-up stands but he said there wasn’t a big variety, so he picked a mascara from Catrice, it’s the Lash Extension Volume Mascara. I’ve been looking for Eternal Optimist from Essie for quite some time now, so he remembered and found it which makes me very happy.
Last but not least, is the Kaufmanns (literally) Skin and Children Cream and I’ve been looking for it for probably a year and a half. You can find it only in Germany and I hear so many people using it as a lip balm and claiming it’s the best lip balm ever.
Have you tried any of these products?
