Thinking outside the box - the green oasis box in Berlin

Are you the type of person who makes new years resolutions ? We secretly do, as there is something very appealing (yet often unrealistic) in the notion of new year, new me. When we made the decision to try to incorporate more natural products into our beauty routines about a year ago, we wouldn’t have thought they would take over so much of our beauty cabinets. While we haven’t completely sworn off other brands, we definitely tend to reach for our natural and organic products much more often than before. I’m sure it doesn’t come as a surprise to you when we say that we totally adore our Weleda products. But it’s not just the fact that their products work in a very gentle but effective way but also the fact that as a company, this green beauty brand is truly committed to all things natural, organic, eco-friendly, sustainable and fair trade. How can you not think highly of a brand who has such respect, love and responsibility towards nature (and people)?

A couple of weeks back, we were invited to Berlin to check out the Weleda pop-up store at the concept mall Bikini Berlin. It is Weleda's first pop-up store of their corporate history! The idea was to create a green oasis in the midst of an urban city like Berlin.

The store is rather a pop-up box, meaning that the store won't be permanently located in the mall. But don't worry, until March 2015 you will be able to pay a visit.

Last time we were invited to get to know their Pomegranate Nailcare Line, but this time we had the chance to explore Weleda's new products and also re-explore their core products (e.g. Lavender Relaxing Oil).

A new line that Weleda recently launched is the so called Nachtkerze - a nocturnal plant that builds flowering branches within minutes. The oil from the Nachtkerze-semen prevents the skin from moisture loss and supports its regeneration.
 Check out the Nachtkerze magazine for further information.
We really enjoyed seeing all Weleda products at a glance and testing out several products on site.

We basically opened every Body Oil bottle since we were way too curious about their scents.

We also spotted some accessories like these bio cotton pouches. Aren't they cute?

After soaking in all the good stuff and reconfirming our ambition to incorporate more natural products into our beauty lineups, we had some time left to take a stroll around Berlin.

Thank you Weleda for having us!

Nesli, I love your hair! How do you get it done? What do you ask for at the salon?

@A Cup Of Nostalgia: That's so nice of you to say and makes me already a bit nostalgic, because I just cut my hair and had it colored a lot darker... :) If you're referring to the color in the photos above, it's an ombré they did at the hair salon and I was lucky it looked so natural. Unfortuantely I don't know the exact color/brand they used but if you have uncolored hair to begin with, an ombré effect is easier to achieve for the hairdresser. I am still into the ombré look, maybe i'll go for it again. As for the styling, I usually use a curling iron for a few strands and brush them out, so it's more wawy and natural-looking. Hope this answered your question somewhat... :) Kind regards, Nesli

@Nesli Thank you so much for the detailed answer! Your replies are always so kind and thoughtful :) Can't wait to see your new hair! I've always been a fan of your hair colours over the years! Which hair colours do you gravitate towards? I am a complete beginner!
