About a year ago, I made some life changes and wanted to get everything on the right track. As a 25-year old I won’t get any younger, right? And whilst my same-aged blogger colleagues argue that one cannot simply go ahead and devour chocolate bar after chocolate bar without it going straight to the hips – like they did with sweet 16 – I found a strategy that works for me. I only snack in the dark. That way the calories can’t find me!
But actually, even though I struggle with regular work outs, I keep a strict eye on my cosmetic and my diet. It all started when I stopped taking the pill and tried to cleanse myself from the inside out. At least that’s what I thought, until I (probably out of boredom) started to check the ingredients of my cosmetic products. I meticulously take care of exposing my body to as little pollution as possible, but I never realized how much of it ends up on my face twice a day. That’s a no go when you’re trying to achieve a healthy life style. So here is my Natural Cosmetic Love (with a quite fitting name) For The Good Life!
Gets under the skin
Who stops taking the pill might notice that at some point, the body finds its own rhythm. And who looks closely will realize that the body is orientated upon the cycle of the moon. Once I realized this, I’m trying to align myself in as many ways as possible to it. When do I cut my hair, when do I try to lose weight…? Great that there’s a cosmetic line that works with the natural cycle and offers ideal support for your skin!
The products from For The Good Life support, nourish and protect your skin individually with precious substances from natural cosmetics. It focuses on your wellbeing, which is reflected in your skin and your beauty. Look and feel of your skin combined in a unique way.
The skin is our largest organ and is known as a mirror of our soul. Shouldn’t it get the most attention then? I recommend this line to take care of your skin and protect it ideally. It’s a brand with personality and for the first time, I had the impression of being recognized as a customer and getting everything fitted for only myself. Concentrating on my individual skin problems. Behind this natural cosmetic brand is the professional beautician Susanne Kaußen, who works as a fulltime natural beautician and is well educated in the field. She shares her longtime experience and knowledge with out and guarantees high quality products with amazing effects that way. And if that wasn’t enough, she’s working with kinesiology to find the root of the skin problem.
For the potential beauticians reading this! It’s a very dear project of Susanne to teach natural beauticians. Perhaps this could be interesting.
A brand by women for women!
In order to guarantee the ideal care it’s optimal to have Susanne take a look at your skin in person. If that’s impossible, like in my case, because I’m living too far away, the right products can be measured carefully. That way you’ll have a momentary picture of your skin profile and can find the fitting products for it.
Für das gute Leben
This brand is a 100% pure natural cosmetic line, without any chemicals. It also doesn’t contain any artificial color, scent or preservatives. Plus everything is cruelty free.
And whilst other cosmetic lines are being criticized for mikroplastics, For The Good Life refines its products with gold leaf. But what I like best is that the production of the skin care lines are aligned to the moon cycle, for example using only pure full moon spring water.
SANFTMUT – Cleansing Milk
For the first time I’m using two cleansing products at the same time and I noticed immediately that the face gel is way too intense and should only be used with harsh acne or extremely oily skin alone. I have to admit, the result is impressive and the feeling is amazing after the very first use.
Let’s start with the cleansing milk. It’s very gentle, calming and a nourishing cleaning option. You get a 200ml bottle which will last you for a long time. It’s mild and gets deep in your pores, regenerates, binds moisture and leaves you relaxed. This is guaranteed by the perfect combination of Vitamin E, almond oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil and very special – the milk refined with 22 karat gold leaf!
Apply the milk to your face and neck and massage it in. Add a drop of the washing gel and massage it as well. Remove both with water or a wet cloth.
Get it HERE.
REINHEIT – Cleaning
Like I said before, the gel is too intense for most cases. This comes from the surfactants. Even though it uses coconut surfactants that are very mild, you should consider using both products. The gel concentrate for face and body comes in a handy 200ml bottle.
I really like the fresh scent of lemongrass. It makes a great mood, especially in winter. Plus essential oils like orange and lemongrass give a clear and beautiful complexion. The skin is cleansed gently and carefully deep in the pores.
The gel lasts a long time. You only need a pea size drop, which you can foam up in your hands with a little bit of water. Don’t forget to rinse your face with slightly warm water.
Get the gel HERE.
LEBENSFLUSS – Face Cleanser
Let’s continue with a clearing and reviving face cleanser. This all day helper fits perfect in your skin care routine, or just in between, because it locks in moisture and increases the smoothness of the skin. Plus, “Lebensfluss” regulates the pH-value and neutralizes chalk rests in the water. It comes in a 120ml bottle and is produced in a classic, therapeutic way and ideally prepares your skin for every following skin care product.
Spray the beautiful flowery water onto your skin and remove with a cotton pad. Add a small mist onto your skin again and let it sink in before using any other product.
Get the water HERE.
KRAFT – Hyaluronan Energy Gel
Apply this gel on your skin when it’s still damp from the Face Water. It increases the overall moisture and smoothens the skin visibly. Wrinkles disappear and cell renewal is motivated. This is guaranteed by the high-grade ingredients like hyaluronan acid that’s 100% plant based, Vitamin B12, minerals and antioxidants.
Application: Simply massage it in and you’re done! It’s also nice as an eye treatment.

HARMONIE – Sandelholz Active Balm
This balm clears impure and stressed skin. Ideal for me and I’m pretty sure everyone else that needs a little bit of wellness with Christmas around. The liposomes, Q10 and Vitamin E enable the serum to settle into every layer of your skin. It also binds moisture, refines the pores and increases the natural glow of the skin.
Application: You only need a few drops and only have to massage it gently into the skin. Then you can continue with your regular skin lotion.

ERKENNTNIS – Eye Treatment
Last but not least, here comes “Erkenntnis” – a smoothing and de-puffing eye treatment that’s been refined with 22 karat gold leaf. It stimulates the formation of collagen and makes your eye look fresh and bright. It has a cooling effect and calms the entire area. A perfect finish!
Application: After cleaning your face, massage the eye treatment from the outside in, gently. Try massaging it in behind your ears too, that’s amazing! The ingredient myrthe from the Andes, stimulates the lymph flow, reducing swelling of the eyes.
It also absorbs right into the skin, so if you’re in a rush, you won’t need to worry about applying make up right after!

ENERGIE– Q10 Lotion
This lotion is the ideal protection from early skin aging, guaranteed by pure natural liposomes from soybeans. This finishing touch to your skin care routine is regenerating, reviving and refreshing. You can get it in a handy 30ml bottle, so you can take it anywhere you’d like. No more excuses!
Application: Massage it in and you’re done already! Your face is now perfectly taken care of and it’s as protected as it can be!
Get the Lotion HERE.
You can use all the product twice a day too, if you’d like. Perfect for morning and evening routine. I am head over heels for them – not only the products but also the philosophy and people behind it.

Petal Perspectives | healthy and fit through summer
This blogpost contains advertisment.
Right now there’s nothing more beautiful than spending time outside and enjoying the sun. But even though you’re lucky enough to have the time to be outside, there’s the one or other summer must-have that makes everything work. A hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and a handy drinking bottle. Sounds like something you won’t like spending your time on, so I’ll go ahead and take care of it in this entry. Because I have to admit that the whole “stay hydrated” theme was like a thorn in my eye. Water isn’t the lightest thing to carry around and depending on the bottle it gets even more uncomfortable. All I’m saying: city trips with a glass bottle that gets heavier with each step, a stressful day at uni and suddenly your bottle leaks, or you get lucky to have a pretty looking one that sucks to clean up – and ends up being used only once.
After many summers, I decided on Option B. Headaches and lack of concentration, because I didn’t drink anything. Not the best alternative and you’ll notice how important it was to tackle this topic. Besides endless beauty tips and food recommendations, I was searching hopelessly for the right solution to get hydrated through summer. At least we can drink ourselves healthy and slim with the proper detox drinks, prevent headaches and my highlight: if you drink enough water, you’ll even prevent wrinkles and early skin aging.
So here’s my beauty tip for summer: DRINK ENOUGH WATER!
For you, I started looking for the perfect drinking bottle all around. And I’ve found it. These models make daily drinking fashionable while being incredible handy. Sustainable, pollution-free and leak-safe – in three sizes and with amazing designs. Perfect for sports, uni, work, a city trip, a shopping spree and most of all – for big and small.
The sustainable drinking bottle
You’ll be drinking with a good conscious, because ISYbe have developed wonderful, sustainable drinking bottles. The soft case makes it nice to hold without adding any additional weight. Perfect for on the go. Plus, they don’t smell a bit like plastic, so you don’t even need to worry about that.
You’ll get the bottles in three sizes: 0,5l; 0,7l and 1,0l. This fact alone makes me love it even more, because I can decide individually how much water I want to carry and can be prepared for anything. A whole day outside or for fitness (they even fit perfectly in the common bike mounts)? You’d better go with the big one. If you just need to run some errands, it’s nicer to have a smaller option. So you won’t waste any space in your purse.
One of the greatest perks: ALL drinking bottles are absolutely free from pollution, and absolutely leak proof. Plus, the bottles also work well with hot beverages (up to 100°C). So they can be more than your summer must have – they’ll be just as great for autumn and winter. On the chemical side: they are pollution free and without softeners, or Bisphenol (BPA). You can also safely put them in the dishwasher! Top!
But what I like most is the huge range. It doesn’t matter if you want a playful design, or something simple in a high-quality, classic look. There’s something for everyone. Convince yourself from the diversity for e.g the 0,5l bottles HERE.
I decided on these two models: The smallest (0,5l) version is decorated with a bird in front of a red dot. It’s so pretty and reminds me of warm summer days with one-of-a-kind sunsets. You can get it for 11€ HERE.
I also fell in love with the “Flower of Life”-motive and if you follow me on Instagram @amely_rose (and carefully watch my stories), you might have notices that I’ve used this one all around my place and in my everyday life. And now it’s on my 0,7l drinking bottle. I love the friendly greens, combined with the calming motive of the flower of life. Symbols and meanings are a true eye catcher, not just the people that are searching for their inner middle. You can get this bottle for around 12€ HERE.
Last but not least, the top seller in the online store. The water as the elixir of life. My 1,0l bottle is – typically for water – completely blue. I love the shades of blue in the lid, and it’s this love to detail that makes the products even more precious for me. In addition, a dynamic water-design decorates the lower part of the bottle, making it look fancy and high-grade. My secret favorite. Get this drinking bottle for 13€ HERE.
I hope my unusual tip was to your liking and you’ll learn to love these bottles as much as I do – while hydrating you well. Feel free to tell me which design is your favorite, but even I had problems deciding on which I liked best, since every single one of them is unique and beautiful.
