NeveCosmetics Flat Perfection

After many reflections, I got Flat Perfection. Again curiosity overcome! 
It is sold as a pressed powder foundation, finally a vegan alternative to loose foundation powders. I have nothing against loose powders, I've been using them for years and I'll keep on doing it, but pressed powders are much more handy as you can easily imagine! :)

#95 Aphorism of the week: Women

Women and cats will do as they please,
men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Nourishing Lip Balm by Yves Rocher

This is gonna be a speedy quick review about a Natural Lip Balm by Yves Rocher. It is a real 'Coup de Coeur'! 
It contains Acacia Honey to delicately soften your lips, sunflower oil to nourish them (yea perhaps they could have chosen a more valuable one, but it's ok), chestnut extract to prevent them from dehydration and oats to repair them and promote cells renewal. 
It has a delicate scent and for its low cost is a great vegetal-based balm, to be used at night or as a protective gloss during the day. I like it :)

Lush Big Guy!

Big has been out for years already, but I've never talked about it before, I wonder why. Lately I've not been using many Lush products because they have raised their prices too much and I think most of them are not worth it. 
Lush claims to be ethically and environmentally active, but some of their 'formulas' are questionable from this point of view. For example the choice of Sodium Laureth Sulfate as the main detergent is not such a safe, green and environmentally friendly choice. But let's come to the review.

Neve Cosmetics Beauty Farm

Beauty Farm by Nevecosmetics is a 2 in 1 product, created to be a make up remover and a beauty mask. 
I usually prepare my make up remover by mixing a vegetal oil with a hydrolat or simple water, then adding the preservative since it's meant to last for weeks. This time though I felt the exigence to change :D and opted for this cheap big (150ml) vegan guy. 
When it comes to removing make up from the delicate eye area, it's always preferable to use thick balms or creams that help removing it more easily and without having to rub much.

Dr Bronner's Balm VS Badger Balm

I think it's always useful to compare two similar products from different brands to see which one works best, at least it is for me :) 
Last year I reviewed Badger Balm Cuticle Care, I was satisfied with it and in love with its smell  ^-^ 
Since I always want to try new products, I decided to try Dr Bronner's Body Balm
I chose the Patchouli-Lime one, it has a nice smell but can't be compared to Badger Balm sorry, they are at different levels! 
The consistency is pretty similar, they are both balms which result oily once applied but will soon be absorbed by the skin.

than to succeed in imitation.
