Today I’m sharing 2 products I’ve been using quite a lot recently and that have suprised me! As I want to buy more natural and cruelty free products I purchased this Ladrôme Rose water in Biotoop in Leuven and this Argan Oil when I was in Greece last Summer. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but enjoy using them now!
As you can read from the lables, both products are natural (for the most part) and cruelty free! This is a first thing I really like about them. I want to support brands that do an effort to create products good for not only us, but also our environment.
The Argan Oil comes with a pipet applicator. I use it for different purposes. Most of the time I use it as an overnight skin hydrating booster! I apply some on the palms of my hands, rub them togheter and then press a little bit in my skin. I also like to add a drop of it to my moisturizer and mix both in my hands which I then apply onto my face. It’s also great for dry patches on your body. The first time I used it on my hair, I applied way too much which left my hair greasy and gross! I waited a long time to try it again, but now I sometimes apply a tiny bit on the tips of my hair if it gets dry. A little bit goes a long way! I also don’t recommend using it in the morning. I always apply it before going to bed, because it takes some time to really sink in the skin.
I think it was Estée from essiebutton.com who raved about rose water! When I made a trip to Biotoop in Leuven and spotted this bottle of Ladrôme Rose Water, I thought I’d try it out! I use it as a second toner to hydrate and plump up my skin. It comes with a spray pump, so at night I like to sprits a couple of sprits (that’s a lot of spritsing 😉 ) directly on my skin. I don’t see major differences in my skin, but it does help making it look less tired and more dewy. Different from Estée I am not at all fond of the smell… I’m not sure if I would repurchase it, but for now I really like to add this little step.
What do you think about natural/bio face products? Do you have any recommendations? I’m also really interested to know if you have some great cruelty free brand suggestions! Let me know!
