Smell good, feel good.
Today, I want to share with you my new discovery: the Cosmetic Kitchen, an Austrian brand with 100% vegan products. I stumbled across their line in DM and I was initially attracted by their simple, cute packaging. But little did I know -when I discovered their “do it yourself” spirit, I instantly fell in love with it and my first thought was to share it with all of you.
To make a long story short, the Cosmetic Kitchen offers a wide variety of products that you can use independently, or mix with each other, in order to create your own favourite. You can buy their products separately, or -alternatively- they offer special kits, in which they already include everything you might need: the “base” product (e.g. a base shower gel, or a base body lotion, without colour and without scent), different scented oils, mixing tools etc. You can literally “cook” your own body care line!
Initially, I bought a lovely scented oil a few weeks ago. It is called “Million dreams”, and it is a very relaxing oil, that you can put on your wrists, behind your ear, on your pillow before you sleep… one of the most relaxing scents I have ever tried.
Recently, I went to DM again and decided to take a look at the rest of their products. A decision I didn’t regret! On that day, I got their base shower gel. It is transparent and has a neutral scent -just pure soap, without any additives.
Today, we will “cook” together! I will use a pink container I got from IKEA a while ago, and combine the scentless shower gel with their Million dreams scented oil. Let’s see what happens! The instructions written on the bottle of the shower gel suggest mixing 200 ml of it, together with 30 drops of fragrance. My container holds 100 ml, so I’ll add just 15 drops of oil and shake it well.
Aha, the result smells good!
It is an amazing and inexpensive way to create your own products. The possibilities are endless -you can even combine a few drops of your everyday signature scent with the base shower gel. Plus, they can make a great DIY gift for your loved ones!
As you can see, I am quite impressed with this brand and I would recommend to give it a try, if you like the idea of preparing your own body care products and spend some time on this kind of project. It would be very nice if I could try more of their products and tell you about them. Who knows, perhaps in the future!
Okay, I’m off! I’m going to have a relaxing shower with my new shower gel, pour a couple of scented oil drops on my wrists, wear my sleeping mask -and take a lovely nap.
Have you tried these products? What do you think of them? I would love to read your comments!
