Kobashi Spritzer Hydrolat

Oh, the name was so attractive that I couldn't resist ;) 
This is a blend of hydrolats ideal for soothing reactive and sensitive skin and for toning your mood! 
It has such a delicate floral feminine smell that could be used as a body mist, really lovely. 
I don't like the bottle though, it is made by plastic and it's not so appropriate for such a delicate and precious blend of vegetal ingredients. I would have chosen a glass bottle, much more elegant and suitable for being recycled over and over again. 
So the packaging is the only downside, this tonic is a paradise! 
Besides the beautiful smell, this is a real caress for irritated skin and a concrete help for problem skin. 
Let's take a look at the hydrolats chosen: 
- rose (astringent, purifying, soothing) 
- neroli (antiseptic and calming) 
- lavender (refreshing and healing) 
- chamomile (soothing and calming) 
- Frankincense (regenerating and purifying) 
- Witch Hazel (astringent and purifying) 
- Aloe Vera (the best soother ;) 
Ah, I almost forgot to notify you that I checked its PH (you know I always do it with face cosmetics) and it is 4, so this water has also a mild exfoliating effect!
Would I purchase it again? Despite the cost (8€ for 100ml), I am enjoying it very much, so YES probably I'd look for it one more time!

Biovera Hair Lotion

Essendomi finita la lozione anticaduta di Fitocoseho deciso di lanciarmi su quella proposta da Biovera
Nonostante sul Giardino di Arianna ci fosse solo una recensione al riguardo ed oltretutto negativa, ho dato adito alla mia testardaggine e quindi l'ho ordinata, perché a mio parere l'INCI è proprio carino! 
Intanto bisogna lodare la confezione che è perfetta per l'utilizzo in zone limitate del cuoio capelluto e ne facilita l'utilizzo. Questa lozione è nata come coadiuvante per la prevenzione della caduta dei capelli e quindi logicamente se ne deduce che sia un ottimo rinforzante e che stimoli la microcircolazione. L'odore, a differenza di quello di Fitocose è molto più discreto, quindi si presta bene ad essere applicato come leave-in.

some men achieve mediocrity

Maharishi Ayurveda Tonico Purifying

Convinta che l'equilibrio psicofisico sia la chiave per una vita sana e quindi per un corpo in salute ed una bella pelle, da poco mi sono avvicinata all'Ayurveda, che con un approccio olistico mira a riequilibrare i tre dosha che 'governano' il nostro corpo (Pitta, Vata, Kapha). Il Tonico Purifying di Maharishi Ayurveda mi ha quindi incuriosita particolarmente, essendo composto da estratti vegetali tipici della tradizione ayurvedica.

'Amore' is in the air!

This is a quick post just to show you the swatches of this new shade that came out for Saint Valentine's Day: let me introduce you the new Pastello by Nevecosmetics called Amore. It has a sister, Psiche which I decided not to purchase because it's a nude shade and as you know I prefer to avoid that kind of light colors on my lips. Amore is a rosy shade, they say it has a velvet/matte finish but I'd say it results slightly shiny on the lips. If you want you can find swatches of my Pastelli here and here. :)

Borlind Wonders: Natural YSL Touche Eclat

Longtime back, I made a comparison between the renowned Touch Eclat by Yves Saint Laurent and a much cheaper version by Catrice, stating that the latter was a really valid alternative. Today I'm proud to let you know that I found not only a cheaper alternative, but also entirely natural and cruelty free!

Stream of Consciousness...again!

Mind blowing go with the flow solar flares among the storms 
NWO bells ringing I know you come caterpillars turning butterflies hell 
on earth blood in paradise floods earthquakes warm linens stains 
against the wall tattoos mark your being your ego conquers the world big bellies 
supercharged bald scalps scrawny child raising hands to the sky 1984 
2016 Orwell prophesying androids descent I'm here love anger energy I can 
help this is my duty fingers running on a keybord I am eager to make you aware 
Obraham opens Pandora's box HAARP geoengineered climate chemtrails throwing 
alumina over us I am still here know and talk Virus so rooted Gates so intentional 
evilish wish behind caring smile eugenics beyond humanitarianism 
billions pruned 500 millions everything is feasible put a hand 
on your heart ooops ignored your mutilation worldspread Mayhem 
of compassion puffy eye dictating law egyptians built and you 
stole their symbol isn't it reckless or disproportionately ambitious 
your plan hey you leading smurfs Daffodils in radiation hold each 
other hands time has come black ties marching on Our lands perfect 
seeds for poisoned perfect bodies silicone hearts robotic fellows 
here we are Agenda 21 ready for 666 Nazi revival legalized genocide 
push the button no time to waste that beautiful smile broken by assisted 
homicides foreign policy cares about vaccines prevent diseases and 
kill cure illnesses and create more Middle Finger wants to come up 
pointing finger you listen you know this is real hardcore sh*t 
hypnotized masses what are you gonna swallow today give you 
facilities what are you gonna purchase today Saint Valentine golden rain falling on GMO hearts 
branded underwear hanging from balconies like glorious sails 
proclaim victory of love on hatred give her a diamond proud of your inflated bank account 
didn't expect resistance it's easy to control minds and bodies not souls blessed from above against worldly curse 
vests and braces power puppets the process has started Baphomet disguised as bright stars horns peering from 
billions valued bras losing souls and path. 
Psychological warfare 
mass media creating cognitive dissonance we want obedient sheeple. 
Silent bombs automatics beats of drums 
a harp melody swinging in the oblivion we dancing in a deadly embrace
Earth has a cancer Mankind here we go I see victorious light shining 
over Illuminati bitter gloom 
I win hand raised doomsday has come.
