A high demand for organic products has risen. We’ve become increasingly worried about what we use on our skin and the impact it has on the environment. I’ve nothing against multinationals or making profits but it’s time that we are aware about our planet. That we’re thinking about consciences. How not to destroy the earth, who has given us a place to live (in peace).
This may sound heavy for “beauty” products but I cannot stop stressing about the fact that we have to start somewhere. Whether it’s using organic products, which benefits your skin and health or using public transport the reduce pollution. I don’t know whether big companies are ecological due marketing reasons or because they believe it’s for a bigger cause but whatever the reason may be I’m happy that they’re making the decision to be more sustainable .
Today I want to introduce you “Garnier Bio”** the new ecological range by Garnier.
1. The products are certified by Ecocert Greenlife according to COSMOS standards.
2. The formulas are vegan an do not contain animal-derived ingredients.
3. The main ingredients come from renewable resources that re-grow every year.
4. The ingredients are organically produced and most of them are fairly traded with respect for biodiversity
5. They use as much recycled and recyclable materials.
Konjac CLEANSING SPONGE
It’s the only product in the Garnier range which isn’t organic certified but the sponge is 100% natural-origin. The Konjac plant is native to Asia and its root fibers are used to make sponges gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin.
HOW TO USE:
When I used it for the first time, I didn’t knew I had to soak it in hot water so it stayed hard. Now I know you have to soak it in boiling water for a few seconds till it become soft and spongy. Wash your face with the sponge and let it dry for the next morning.

Lemongrass DETOX GEL WASH
This detox gel wash is enriched with organic lemongrass essential oil that offers a deep yet gentle cleanse. It can be used in the morning and evening.
Before receiving this gel I had no clue if I had to leave it on my skin or rinse it because I’m only used to soap and micellar water to cleanse my face. Both aren’t really beneficial for my skin they dry it out. Except for organic soaps with an oily element which I will talk about in another blogpost.
HOW TO USE:
Best to combine it with the Konjac sponge. Put it on the sponge. Massage your face gently. Wash it of and use toner to remove the additional product of your skin. Then apply your day cream.
