My body and face care routine

Today I want to share my body and face care routine with you...

... I never did a "my whatever routine" post before and some of you asked me to do so when I commented on their routine. So here we go :) 

I am a simple girl, using simple products (always natural and organic) and not too much of everything. So when it comes to my body I use a shower gel (currently I am in love with the shower gels from benecos - I love their smell!) and a body lotion afterwards (currently my favorite one from Weleda...). Around once a month I use a body scrub which i make from grinded avocado kernel (I just put a avocado kernel in my high speed blender, turn it on, until I have a kind of powder and thats it). Thats it about my body care routine :)

Currently I really love these shower gels from benecos so they are an everyday part of my morning routine. 

I change my body lotions quite regularly since I cannot decide on an all-time favorite. I showed you a few of my favorites here. This one from Weleda did actually not make it to the list that time even though it definetly belongs to my favorites!

The last part of my daily body routine is of course my deodorant. Those of you who, like me, only use organic cosmetics, know that its a little bit of a thing to find a good organic deodorant. I have been trying quite a few in the past few years and I was never 100% satisfied. Often they smell too strong of essential oils, they do not really protect you, they do not last long etc. etc. For a few weeks now I try this deodorant from benecos and I have to say that so far I really like it. The smell is decent and fresh, it protects me well and I feel clean and fresh with it, even when I go running or do other sports (or when I am moving boxes from the old apartment to the new one ;)). But I have to try it further in Summer when I am hot for several hours, to say if it really is as good as I think right now ;)

But now to my face care routine. I do not use any make up remover but instead I remove my make up with coconut oil - its cheaper, better for my skin and 100% natural and organic :) 
Have you tried this? I can really recommend doing this - it also works perfectly fine for waterproof eye make up and I am sure its so much healthier for your skin than whatever make up remover you can find.  

And here a few other products I use for my face: A toner from Burts Bees that I use every morning, organic almond oil which I use instead of a night cream (in Summer I do not put anything on my face at night, but in Fall and Winter my skin is more dry so I put a little bit of almond oil), and two day creams. Depending on my mood I either use a Beauty Balm from Lavera or the Regenerating Day Cream from Love me Green that I showed you already here :)

Well, and thats it. As I said, I am a simple girl. Do you use a lot more products in your body and face care routine or maybe even less than I do? I would love to know :)

Sending much love and wishing you all a great week ahead!

  4. These types of posts are so interesting, great to see yours.

  5. Great post dear! Following you now :)

  6. I'm using a Weleda body lotion, but a different one. It's not my favourite, but it's very nice.
    I think when it comes to any part of the body, products should be changed regularly so the skin can't get used to them.

  7. I think this is the first time I've never heard of one of these products :)
    It's really interesting to see other products available around the world! I'm planning on doing a BIG trip next year and traveling the world, so at least when I get to your side of the globe and run out of some beauty care products I know what to get ;) hehe

  8. Thanks for sharing. Sounds like you have found some good products.

  10. Fantastic review. First time? I had no idea. I am actually surprised to hear that as this was very well written!


  11. Nice post! Thanks for sharing this!


  12. I am so bad and never use any products! I need to try some of these!

  13. Ich habe ja gehört, dass es gar keine richtigen Beweise für die Schädlichkeit von Aluminium gibt. Bei mir weiß ich zumindest, dass ich Deos ohne Aluminium gar nicht erst benutzen brauche, da kann ich auch gar nichts nehmen - denn das ist ja auch die eigentliche Komponente, die die Schweißproduktion im Griff hält.
    Kokosfett nutze ich auch gern und viel!


  14. I'd love to try out those Shower gels and that Burt's Bees Toner too

  16. Hello from Spain: great beauty products. I just discovered your blog and I like the variety of topics that you write. Fashion and beauty are my hobbies with my Barbie doll collection. Right now I have a blog dedicated to those dolls that I invite you to visit: If you want we keep in touch. I already made me a follower of your blog.

  17. What great products, I have never seen these before!


  18. I love posts like this, cos I adore cosmetics- you intrigued me with this avokado body scrub, what a great idea! Unfortunately I dont think my blender could handle avokado kernel:( But I love coffee and sugar body scrub which I make myself. I've heard about make up removing with oils but I was always afraid to use them on my eyes, if you recommend it I will try it, cos I have a lot of coconut oil. When it comes to body I prefer natural oils or oils for babies - I like those from Babydream or Alterra. You've asked about red cabbage soup - I was craving some red cabbage, so I have one in my fridge now. but I'm planning to make some slaw out of it. I havent cooked a soup with it, but I'm sure it would be yoummy. In here we make white cabbage soup more often, usually with vegetables and some grains. Today we have a national holiday, so we are resting at home, cos its raining all the time. But the weekend was nice, we visited our family as always and enjoyed a long walk with a dog:) Have a lovely evening, hugs:)))
