“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself”, said the legendary Coco Chanel once. Therefore, it’s the perfect time to choose who you want to be and to pick the perfect beauty products for your skin. And, for this month, let’s go local! I have discovered 7 different Romanian brands and I put them on my beauty list.
Right, this blog is not about beauty, in the first place. And I am not a beauty expert, for sure. But I really like to discover local brands (like jewellery ones or young cool Romanian designers. And, after a summer spent in Romanian swimming suits, in some beautiful local places… I think now it’s the perfect time to meet the Romanian beauty brands.
1. Iehana – @iehanacosmetics
Their secret ingredient: Kangen water (pure, alkaline and antioxidant water). Along with that, the products incapsulate clay, lily and alga extracts, ginseng, essential oils – in fact, a lot of substances with Ayurvedic proprieties.
On my try list: Cleanser Balm – a solid make-up remover, vegan, with shea and coconut butter.

Their secret: handmade cosmetics, with 100% natural ingredients – bee wax; green tea; almond, coconut, jojoba, olive, kukui oils; rosemary and honey. P.S. – I just loved the smell of the facial cleanser!
On my list: the Body Cream with green tea and almond oil.

The secret ingredient: CBD oil. The products are natural, vegan and cruelty free. I just loved their packaging – the gemini stickers are lovely and the illustrations that get along with the website, as well.
On my night desk now: CBD Infused Hair Oil it’s already there and I think my hair will thank me for the oil mix (sweet almonds, apricot kernels, marula, coconut, CBD).
