Review: This vegan exfoliating scrub is amazing. I tried a bunch of scrubs in my life already, but this one is just one of the best peelings I have ever tested. However, It is a deep cleansing peeling that removes deep-rooted impureness gently and effectively and gives your skin a soft feeling thanks to its Jojoba Oil. Directly after using this product, I noticed a nice change in my skin. The dead skin removing and refreshing effects, giving your complexion a healthy glow. I also love the fresh smell of the bioactive native lime extracts. This product is certified by Organic Food Chain (OFC).
Review: Firstly, I want to describe you the smell of this powerful facial oil. Close your eyes and imagine a strong smell of the most beautiful plants. When you open the bottle you will know what I mean. In the morning, I inhale the smell before using it, starting the day calming. I use this oil as my daily ritual post showering in the morning. It absorbs very quickly, and I use it before applying my makeup. This plant-based oil prepared my skin for winter since it moisturizes my skin with its nutritionally packed ingredients like seed oils.
Review: I use this cleansing oil at the night to clean my face after removing my makeup with coconut oil and before applying my serum. I massage 3-5 drops into my dry face and neck skin by using circular movement and then leave it for a few minutes. I rinse the oil off with warm water using a small facecloth. The result is that the skin feels very fresh, chilled, bright and well nourished.
Review: My favorite and the most classy nail polish color of the season is a dark red tone, here called: narcissist. You can wear narcissist every autumn/winter season and the color won´ t never be out of style. So I can keep this nail polish for years. The bottle deign is super minimal. The brush is handy and has the perfect width which is important for me since I want to apply the polish accurately and easily on my own. The nail varnish dries quickly within 1-2 minutes. The polish is very glowy so no need for an extra layer of transparent glow. I just apply a second layer to make sure the color last as long as possible and after 2 minutes waiting, I am ready. All Kester Black polishes are vegan and five-free which means that they do not include toxins like DBP, Camphor, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin. The polish is certified by Australian Made, Cruelty Free International, UK Vegan Society.
Review: I love this beautiful natural lipstick in color Goodness. Since I am naturally blonde and I have a lighter complexion, I prefer to use lighter lip colors for the day. This silver shiny blush-pink is suitable for a coffee with friends and also looking great for the office. The super soft consistency of the Axiology lipstick makes applying very easy and gives you a soft moisturizing feeling on your lips. I also love the idea to wear a vegan, organic and ethical lipstick on my lips which last a long time.
