Sundays are for peeking into other people’s bathrooms with our green glasses on! We premier with Iryna, photo- and videographer, designer, entrepreneur, and mom of two.
Iryna (or Ira as friends know her) Montag is a travel photographer turned founder of TOSHKA BERLIN, kids’ natural linen bedding and home wear manufacture who you’ve met in my BCBtW Series in 9 Reasons To Choose Linen Bedding. She loves niche and artisanal products that have a story to tell. A busy mum, she doesn’t have lots of time for a sophisticated beauty routine, so she chooses products with aromatherapeutic effects to fully benefit from a few brief beauty moments she’s got for herself.
MY GREEN FAVOURITES
“I’ve become a glowing fan of Dr. Hauschka. More and more of their products keep popping up in my bathroom. Basically, I don’t own much: face moisturiser, Pure Alpine Oil, hydrolate (Primavera, Double Happiness), foundation, blusher, eye shadow and mascara. That’s it.
To me it’s crucial that the products I use smell good. Which reminds me of a wonderful moment with my little daughters. I received a travel size of the Pure Alpine Oil as a gift, and was blending 1-2 drops with my facial cream at night. I loved the smell so much. After a while my kids asked me for a drop of this oil to be put onto their hands. When I asked why, the two said “because it smells so nice of mama”. The best reason to now get the full size indeed :)”
MY GREEN BLIND SPOT
“Unfortunately I am yet to find good and affordable “green” hair care products.”
MY BEAUTYCALYPSE DISCOVERY
“Thanks to BEAUTYCALYPSE I discovered a wonderful brand. I’ve a soft spot for niche fragrances, and ‘Middle East Peace’ by The 7 Virtues is now one of my all-time favourites. The scent reminds me of travels in foreign countries.”
