    Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic & Douglas Naturals lipbalm

    I looove roses, I do, but as soon as Valentine’s starts creeping round social media and shop windows, suddenly the world is all via GIPHY But! the truth is that deep down I find collective nonsense like this entertaining, so I’m playing too, and today I bring roses… well, not really: I do bring lipbalm, though, which is a necessity for me at this time of the year; lately I’ve been using this Douglas Naturals lipbalm with organic pomegranate extract, and the Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic. Lipbalms and I, a tale of devotion (& a brief disgression) First off, I want to make one thing clear:…

    Lip color and care: Essence lipstick & Dizao Organics lipbalm

    As a rule, I’m all about gloriously tacky colors and piling up on the eye makeup, while being very conservative and dull with lip products.

The new year so far has brought me awesome and challenging new work projects that have kept me away from my blog during all these days… however, like Ah-nold, I promised I’d be back, and here I am, with a fresh new review of Benecos lip products. I’ve already talked about this German brand some posts ago, and despite my less-than-stellar experience with their (dreadful) mascara, the lip products I’ve tried from them have made me want to go back for more… A couple months ago I went back to using my favorite product from this brand, Benecos Bio Lipbalm. And when I say it is my favorite,…

    Review: Weleda Everon Lip Balm

    This year I imposed myself the rule of using only one lipbalm at a time, rather than buying and keeping one in my handbag, one in the bathroom, one in my bedside table, as I used to do… nevertheless, Weleda’s Everon Lip Balm almost made me break my rule and go get another one ASAP, without using it up first. I haven’t done it because I want to finish this product, and recycle the container so that at least a part the sacrifice isn’t made in vain, and I know that if I buy another lipbalm, this one will simply be pushed aside and forgotten, serving no earthly purpose to…
