Recent Loves


One Love Organics Brand New Day Microderma Scrub & Masque : Dual purpose products are always great and when they work well, they're awesome. Mixed with water, this powder becomes a gentle exfoliating scrub. A little plain greek yogurt or raw honey transforms it into a skin renewing mask. It smells lovely and has done wonders for my pores. 

Yes to Cucumbers Daily Gel Cleanser : My skin tends to be more sensitive during the winter months and this soothing cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed without drying it out. A fantastic natural and cruelty free cleanser for under $10.

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil : Last month I started using a half cup of coconut oil in my twice weekly mineral salt baths and it leaves my skin incredibly soft and moisturized. I also use it as a conditioning pre-wash treatment once a week and my hair is so much more manageable and easy to style now. 

These are my recent loves. Do you use any of these products? And do tell me about yours.

Oh too bad we don't have these products in our country. Right now, here in the Philippines, the wind can get dry and cold (especially at night). I'm actually not used to this kind of weather since it's always hot here! My oily skin has turned flaky, so I'm most curious about Yes to Cucumbers Daily Gel Cleanser. :)

I don't use these but they sound great! xx

I was looking at One Love over weekend, actually. May eventually try something… :) Unfortunately, my experience with Yes to wasn't as nice as I hoped for - my skin didn't like the products… :( As for the oil - yes, I use it for so many things - fantastic stuff! :)

Hi Rowena, those all look like amazing products and would like to try them too. Especially the coconut oil, it is one of my fav too, usually I use it more in summertime but with these cold days, is great the same. I need to buy it too. Have a lovely week ahead my dear, many kisses! xo

The scrub and mask sounds great, I agree multi-tasking is important. I didn't have a good experience with the Yes to Cucumbers shampoo but it's nice to see the products are helping your skin because I like the products in theory. I use coconut oil in a salt scrub I make, I just get the organic grocery store brand though :)

I just got a sample pack of a bunch of scrubs and masks and I'm having fun trying them out.

These all sound lovely! I have used the cucumber product before although my hair guy forbids me to use coconut oil on my hair these days. It's great in the bath though, I must remember to use mine!

The skin smoother sounds amazing! Since these days my hands are getting so dry because of the cold, I'm using an Aloe Vera hand lotion by Bath & Bloom and I'm loving it!

Amyboo said...

I've heard of coconut oil from so many people now. I really need to get myself some. My skin is getting too dry this January!

Unfortunately I don't think to find these products in Italy...but thanks to share them!

Happy day

Ooh, these products sounds amazing! I especially am interested in the coconut oil. I have really dry skin and my hair seems to dry out really easily so I'm always having to switch my conditioner. I'm going to have to hunt something like this down!

I haven't tried any of these products, but I tried a different coconut oil on my hair. Not sure if I liked it though. I spent at least three hours with that oil on my hair, but when I washed it off, my hair felt a bit like a straw - a very strange reaction! I do get some unanticipated reaction from various products on my hair though. A lot of people avoid products with silicone, but for me they are the most predictable and always give the result that I want...

Oh, I'm in love with One Love Organics! And I use coconut oil often with my oatmeal, and always wondered what it would be like when used on the skin/hair. I definitely need to try it out if it works for you!!

Pilar Bernal Maya said...

I think I'm going to try the YES products this year. They've really peaked my curiosity. I've heard good and bad things. So when that happens, you have to try them yourself. HAHAHA The scrub and coconut oil sound divine.

I do not use any of them currently but I need to!!! My skin is looking a bit blah after having these 3 beans...a bit of a refresh with that skin smoother sounds just about right!!! Thanks for sharing these friend! A very wonderful week to you!!! Nicole

M.E said...

For me coconut is one of the best natural products that are around, especially for my dry skin... I often use just pure coconut oil (the one they also sell for baking!) to moisturize and it does miracles :)
Love your choice of products Rowena x

Emma Henderson said...

I haven't tried any of these - I'm not sure we can get them in Ireland - but they all sound lovely!

Diva In Me said...

Sam said...

A skin and hair conditioner made from coconut oil! That sounds divine and so nourishing too. The scrub seems like a great find Rowena. I love learning about new products from you

MaysaAndSunshine said...

I tried coconut oil two years ago when I went back home to Thailand, it was very popular there at that time before making its way to the shelves in the US. I liked to put it in my hair before shampooing (but I found d it quite difficult to rub into skin). It was messy but good then I just got too lazy to continue.

Marcela Gmd said...

Great products!!!
Have a good week, dear Rowena!!! my g+and like for you!!!:)))

Besos, desde EspaƱa, Marcela♥

I think I have that same Coconut Oil! Though I don't use it for beauty, I use it for cooking and baking. I can imagine it would be very moisturizing in a bath though!

Rosemary Nardone said...

I prefer the coconut oil in my hair than using it to cook or bake with. I would like to try that skin smoother, sounds very nice. Hope your Tuesday was FAB!!

Elle Sees said...

i am trying so many things right now, so no current routine.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

That's not the coconut oil that I use, but I totally love organic coconut oil. I use it in my hair all the time.
