Shopping in Germany: Alverde hair care

I took me "a while" to write this :P I'll also write only in English, since these are unfortunately not sold in Finland (and I'm too busy). The prices are CHEAP: shampoos 1.95€ and conditioners 2.25€. Most of these shampoos or conditoners are not ecocertified but vegan & silicone free, there is one ecocertifien conditioner (sensitive) but I don't like it at all. Most of the Alverde products are ecocertified.


I bought Alverde Men shampoo for my husband and he loves it :D It's as good as the other Alverde shampoos (I've tested it too) but it looks more masculine and contains beer. I recommend this to your dads, husbands, boyfriends & sons :D The scent is ok for women too, it's not like "masculine" scents usually. NaTrue certified.

I also bought Alverde Men Eye roll-on for him but it's mine now ;D It is REALLY good, easy to apply, refreshing and the scent is mild & neutral (not masculine or feminine), I recommend this to everybody but not if you have very dry skin. I think I'll buy many of these when I visit Germany next time! BDIH certified.

Alverde Blond shampoo & conditioner: These are as good as the rest of Alverde shampoos/conditioners but  I personally don't like this very sweet scent of honey. I also don't think it does anything for my blonde hair :)


Alverde Coffein (green coffee) shampoo and condioner are just great! I think they make my hair feel stronger :) The scent is also nice, it's green and fresh and suitable for both men & women.


Alverde Sensitive condioner, BDIH certified and that certificate was the only reason I didn't leave this to my hotel in Germany :P I really do not like this at all! The scent is too strong (lavender I think?) and it just doesn't make my hair feel as soft & good as the other Alverde conditioners. Makes me think that it's impossible to make ecocertified conditioner I would really like :/ I tried to use this in my hair & kids hair but eventully I gave up.

The travel size is Alverde Avocado conditioner, one of my favorites and the one I'd recommend for longer or damaged hair. I have to use it carefully, it's very conditioning. I have also used this as a waterproof eyemakeup remover! Yep, I forgot my makeup removers home and this did the job ;D


Alverde styling gel (I have travel size & normal size) is ok and I like to use it. I still won't say it's great but it's BDIH certified and not expensive, so you could try it. The consistency is very typical to eco-gels. The hold is not strong, I use it on my damp hair before blow drying. My hair type is very silky & fine, this makes it a bit more manageable. Smells very good!

Alverde hair spray is also something I can't recommend to all but I still like it. The hold is not strong, not enough for me anyway, but almost everytime I've used it I've heard compliments of my "super shiny hair"! Smells good too :)

You can buy this brand from the Central Europe (I buy mine from DM in Germany), the products not sold in webshops. I REALLY love their products (except makeup) I bought a lot as a gift too:

Prices are around 2€/ bottle so I bought "a few" ;)

  1. I've seen these in my local DM shop but I never tried them. I do have long and dry hair so Alverde Avocado conditioner sounds promising :)

  2. I've read a lot about DM brand. The other one that receives a lot of rants is Balea. I go to DM very often but have never tried any of their products.

  3. MissA: You should try these :D Especially the body products are just GREAT! Post about them coming soon :)

    Noir: yep, avocado might be the best. It also works great as a hair mask!

  4. Arrgh, ei tosiaankaan taida olla nettikauppaa, joka näitä möisi. Saksan eBaysta löytyy satunnaisia tuotteita, ehkä pitäisi kytätä sitten siellä...

    If anyone knows a place where you can buy these online (other than eBay), give a shout! :)

  6. graphology: I want that too :D My suitcase is always full of Alverde products!

    Silli: Eipä taida saada, taitaa olla DM:n oma merkki. Toivottavasti saat jonkun saksalaisen postittelemaan. Matkalaukkuni näyttää varmaan aika vinkeältä läpivalaisussa, kun tulen Saksasta kotiin ;D

  7. Silkkaa vääryyttä, ettei tällaisia ja etenkin tähän hintaan myydä täällä suomessa!

  8. Sannu: sepä se... Suomessa ei tuollaisiin myynteihin päästäisi ja suuri määrä toki laskee hintaakin. Mälsää joka tapauksessa!

New Aromaleigh products for face (primer, powders, foundations)

Vain englanniksi, omaa tekstiä on vähemmän ja menee muuten liian sekavaksi :)



illuminata luxe mineral finishing powder
Yay! "diamond" powder without silica! I can use some silica but better if not too much... So I prefer products without it. This made skin look very radiant. Me likey! I already bought a full size of this :D "Aromaleigh "Illuminata Luxe" Finishing Powder is a translucent, sheer loose mineral cosmetic powder, that contains reflective minerals to give your skin a subtle, more radiant appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are less dominant, and a fine finish is revealed. It takes the Illuminata formula a step further with the addition of a revolutionary light-diffusing diamond copolymer, which is a spherical powder with an entrapped photoluminescent diamond core. This diamond copolymer ingredient, while not "mineral" or "natural" in nature, adds great benefit to this Finishing Powder's ability to impart a soft-focus effect and …

Vänttisen (Arja's Art) valjaat kissoille & Power of Nature-kissanruoka

*This post about cat products is only in Finnish, sorry!*

Tässä muutamia kuvia lempivaljaistamme, Vänttisistä :) Arja Vänttiseltä saa myös aivan loistavaa palvelua ja valjaat tehdään mittojen mukaan samaan hintaan. Valjaat ovat pehmoiset ja todella helpot laittaa kissalle. Myös lapset ja mummit onnistuvat näiden laitossa hyvin :D Plussaa siitä, että solkia on vain yksi ja sekin on laadukas. Valjaita löytyy niin kissoille, koirille kuin kaneillekin. Valmistajan lisäksi näitä saa mm. Mustista&Mirristä ja Megaeläimestä. Kissanvaljaiden hinta alle 20€. Meillä on näitä koosta XXS kokoon L.

Suosittelen Vänttisiä erittäin lämpimästi muillekin :)

Valmistaja: Arja's Art









Toinen ehdoton suosikkimme on Power of Nature-kissanruoka! 80% lihaa eikä mitään turhuuksia!

Colored contact lenses - Freshlook Dimensions Caribbean Aqua

Sain Lenstorelta piilarit testiin ja mukava oli testata välillä värillisiäkin! En osannut itse päättää väriä, joten annoin Lenstoren valita :D Testiin tuli Freshlook Dimensions-linssit Caribbean Aqua-värissä. Linssit olivat väriltään yllättävänkin tummat, tummemmat reunoiltaan kuin keskeltä, omat silmäni ovat todella vaaleat.

"FreshLook Dimensions värjätyt piilolinssit / kuukausilinssit CIBA Visionilta tehostavat ja vahvistavat silmien vaaleaa luonnollista sävyä. Piilolinssit soveltuvat sini-, harmaa- ja vihreäsilmäisille (tummasilmäisille suosittelemme FreshLook Colors tai FreshLook ColorBlends -malleja). Tummempi rengas iiriksen ympärillä lisää katseesi intensiivisyyttä (katso kuva ohessa). Huomioi, että väritulos riippuu omien silmiesi väristä, emmekä täten voi täydellisesti taata toivottua väritulosta. Linssit otetaan silmistä ja puhdistetaan ennen nukkumaanmenoa, otetaan käyttöön jälleen seuraavana aamuna ja korvataan uusilla kuukauden käytön kuluttua." Lensstore.fi
