Mint is a plant that I saw growing in my parent's garden during my childhood. The very unique scent combined with powerful bioactives make Mint a very interesting beauty ingredient.
It refreshes, gives some tonic vibes and just helps me to rewind quickly. It is one of my favorite scents!
I am have been in a real minty mood lately. Let me tell you how.
First thing I do in the morning is to jump in the shower and waking up freshly thanks the Organic Surge Citrus Mint shower gel. I am totally loving this bodywash; powerful and invigorating!
I can't wait to order it again (see here), along with their refreshing face wash, but I guess I will wait for a super promotion discount code from Naturissimo.
In the morning and evening, I can't do without my organic Peppermint water that I bought in the Provence (see here). It is one of my favorite plant waters of the bunch I have purchased and it is just fabulous at toning and clarifying the skin in a very subtle manner of course. Since I am not too much of a fan of skincare beauty products that are powerfully scented with essential oils, I find that hydrosol is a good alternative. Why? One of the advantages of organic waters is that they contain only a very very small pecentage of essential oils. It means that you get the benefits of them without the "negative effects" of being overdosed. So any sensitive skins, get reassured, the risks of irritation are minimised....and the scent remains very subtle.
Another really nice beauty goodie I am using at the moment is the Beauty by Earth lip balm. It is nicely scented with Peppermint and delivers a great hint of cool when you apply it to the lips. On the top of that, it is deeply nourishing and has the amazing rich and onctuous texture that "covers" your lips without disappearing after a few minutes...if you are not familiar with Beauty by Earth, I strongly advice you to read my latest post about this brand that I love.
What do you think? Which scent are you crazy about at the moment?
