Odd Couples: Mix and Match Aveda Products

Ever wonder what it would be like to take an Aveda product from one product line and then use it with another? I do - and I do it all the time! I put together a quick list of some of my recent favorites that I’d like to share with you. And, on second thought - the combos aren’t that odd at all, as Aveda products are interchangeable and versatile - plus - aroma profiles are often complementary and “play nice with others” when you mix them up a bit!

  • SunCare Hair and Body Wash & Rosemary Mint Body Lotion Right now, I’ve chosen to stay out of the gym, so I’m spending a good amount of time outside jogging or walking for the cardio portion of my workout. During the hot summer months I love to use SunCare Hair and Body Wash. I love its bright, summery aroma and the way it cleanses my skin. It’s a pearly cleanser so it gently but effectively cleanses my skin without stripping away moisturization - it's great at removing salt build-up after plenty of cardio in the heat and sun. After cleansing, I apply Rosemary Mint Body Body Lotion. Rosemary Mint has always been a favorite of mine, but during the summer, I’m addicted to it. Its lightweight texture is perfect for summer - and it delivers the perfect amount of moisturization without the heaviness. Packed with organic peppermint, it cools the skin and leaves behind (only after initial application) a tingling sensation. It’s my summer go-to moisturizer, hands down!

  • Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme & Shampure Composition Oil Olivia and I have the same affinity for Hand Relief! Hand Relief is a staple in my body care routine, and has been for a long time! It’s a very rich creme that intensely moisturizes your hands without being greasy or heavy. I use it every time I wash my hands, and then kick it up a notch by adding just a drop of Shampure Composition Oil for extra nourishment. This oil is a multi-tasker - great for scalp, body, hands (especially cuticles), and feet.

  • Illumination Petal Essence Single Eye Color & Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisture Mix your foundation with eye shadow? Yes! What you get with the combo is a great highlighter for cheekbones and the tip of your nose. Using a smaller drop of Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisture in your shade, scrape in (using a little wooden spatula or even the back of your fingernail) Illumination Single Essence Single Eye Color, mix gently, and voila! You have an instant face highlighter. Mix a bit of a bigger amount to use on legs or arms - and then buff in with a kabuki-style brush, like Aveda’s Inner Light Foundation Brush. Show your glow!

  • BONUS! Use one of our beautiful, shimmery Feed My Lips Lip Gloss Toppers as a highlighter as well! Simply take a small amount of your favorite one - Rose Gold Shimmer, Gold Shimmer, or Silver Shimmer, and gently dab and blend on your cheek bones for a little extra sparkle!

Have fun being an Aveda mixologist - I know I do! Do you have a favorite, “unlikely” pair that you like to use? Let us know! We’d love to hear from you, of course. Happy mixing!
