Things I like Thursday v.2 - Beauty edition (+penguins & polarbears)

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

I have to say that I love reading beauty blogs. I love to see the pictures, I love to discover new things and I love to get some inspiration. So I thought it would be a nice idea to show you my favorite beauty products at the moment. 

1. Tangle Teezer

My hair and I are not very good friends. It can be so painful to brush it and it never looks the way I want it to. So I never looked forward to brushing my hair after I had washed it. Then I heard and read about the Tangle Teezer and I have to say that I was more than sceptical. I mean, it is just a weird looking piece of plastic plus it is not the cheapest brush you can imagine. In Germany you have to pay 14,95 Euro (almost 19$) for that pink little bit of plastic, in America you can get it for 9,95 $ (8 Euros). But hey, I have tried it and now I don't have to cry anymore when I brush my hair. I don't know how it works but it does work. I have to say that I have never tried it with dry hair but it works fine with wet hair. So  I can only recommend it, especially when you have terrible hair like me. 

2. Lush Herbalism

I know, I have said it before but I love Lush products. Some people don't like the smell but I can't get enough of it. I love the way you already smell the store from a hundred meters away. Herbalism is a facial cleanser and it is made of rice vinegar, almonds, rosemary, chamomile, nettle and kaolin (China clay). It has a peeling effect and is completely vegan. I use it every night to clean my skin and my skin feels like a baby's butt after using it. 

3. Alverde Feuchtigkeitskur Aloe Vera & Hibiskus

This is a product from Germany, you can buy it at "dm Drogeriemarkt" which is the most famous drug store there. It is a treatment for dry hair and I use it every second time after I have washed my hair and used conditioner. It contains Aloe Vera and hibiscus and is from "alverde" which is the natural cosmetics line from dm. It is pretty cheap, only 1,45 Euros I think and it is absolutely great. My hair feels so much better and it gives it a lot of moisture. It is also completely vegan (and smells soooo good!)

4. Lush Handy Gurugu

Another Lush product! Yay! Okay, I have dry hair AND skin and especially the skin on my hands is always terribly dry so I need a really really really good hand cream. I have tried a lot but I recently discovered this one and now I don't want to use anything else. It smells wonderful and makes your skin so soft. It contains shea butter, pumpkin seed butter, almond butter and cashew butter. So lots of butter. But don't worry, it does not feel like butter on your hands. It is also vegan and did I say that it smells really good?

5. Lush Rockstar soap

LUSH! What a surprise! But this is the best smelling soap I have ever used and it is pink! It smells like vanilla and contains some glitter. So I would say it is the perfect soap.

And here is something I really really really wish for my birthday....a Lime Crime lipstick. The color is so cute and I just love the packaging. Hehe. (Hello husband!)

And here is my song of the day: Penguins and polarbears by Millencolin.

What are your favorite beauty products? Any recommendations?
Have a wonderful Thursday!


  1. When I saw the second one, I thought it was ice cream. :) And that lipstick is really pretty. Happy Thursday!

  2. I really should try the tangle teaser! Thanks a lot for the tip!
    I really, really don't like Lush. Every product I've tried was way too oily. I really like Kiehl's and Burt's Bees, though. They are way cheaper in the US.
    I understand why you'd miss's awesome!!!
    The design of the Line Crime lipstick is awesome!

    Have a great day!

    1. I hope it will work for you too! I am really happy with it!
      I guess it works different on people. It works great for me!
      dm is the best! :))
      And yeah, I love the design and I hope I'll get it for my birthday! :))
      Have a great evening! Hugs!

  3. mmm. Love Lush products! I've recently been obsessed with bright lipsticks and beauty hair treatments! Just picked up a macadamia hair masque, and it's fabulous. xoxo

  4. I completely agree with the tangle teezer! I bought one for my daughter who has very long hair and she is incredibly impressed by it!

    1. It's really good, I never even expected it to work that well! I am glad I got one!
