I found out about benecos during the opening event of the vegan supermarket in my city. I posted about the event here. Anyway, there I saw the products from benecos for the first time and I was really exited about them. Why? Because its so unbelievable difficult to find somehow "natural" nail polish! I love nail polish but I always feel bad when I use it because its not organic, its not natural, its just not good for my nails. Now, the one from benecos is not 100% organic neither BUT at least they do not use any Formaldehyde, Toluene, Camphor, Phthalates and Colophony - and thats already something!
So, I got these wonderful products to try:
2 nail polishes which you can find here or here (colors are Wild Orchid and French Lavender)
1 nail polish remover which you can find here (its all organic and natural!!!)
1 Natural Quattro Eyeshadow which you can find here or here
If you live in Germany you can also find the products from benecos in several organic online shops, like on http://www.ecco-verde.de/benecos , in some shops which sell organic cosmetics and in some organic or vegan supermarkets (such as Veganz)
In my last post (here) you could see me wearing the Wild Orchid nail polish and I have to say that I really like this color! I am also satisfied with how long it lasts. I am wearing it since five days now (three coats plus top coat) and my nails still look good. This is really important to me since I dont like to remove my polish too often (it just damages my nails). Before putting on the polish "for real", I tried the nail polish remover and I was happy and surprised how good it works. I thought it may be difficult to remove the polish, since the remover is all natural but it actually works really well. And, I somehow even feel like my nails are less damaged when using this remover, compared to the ones I usually use (but maybe thats just my imagination, I dont know).
Now about the eyeshadow. Some of you have read my reviews about this organic brand called Lavera which I really love. I have to admit that in the past years I NEVER used other eyeshadows than the ones from Lavera! Yes, this might sound super boring to some of you, but I just find it difficult to find good organic eyeshadows which are looking good, feeling good and which have great ingredients - and I do not let anything else touch my skin! The skin around my eyes is really sensitive and up to know it was only the eyeshadows by Lavera which did not irritate my skin (and which are afforable at the same time...)
So... then this little package with the products from benecos came into the house and since that day I have been using the benecos eyeshadow every single day! I love the lightest color as a highlighter and I do not leave the house without it anymore! I also love the natural color of the other three shades and I love to mix around with them. It feels so good on my skin, it looks good, I just love to wear it!
And there is a last thing I have to say about benecos... its actually cheaper than most organic cosmetic brands! It may actually become my new favorite brand for organic make up. For now, I am really in love with the eyeshadow and the nail polish and I really want to try their mascara! I am still looking for a good organic mascara and find it hard to find. Maybe I will be lucky with the ones by benecos :)
What do you think, how do these products look to you? If you are intersted in natural cosmetics, and even if you are intersted in cosmetics in general, I think you should check out benecos and try some of their products! Its a German brand but you can order world wide from different shops or from amazon.
I hope you enjoyed this review as much as I enjoy my benecos products :)
Have a wonderful day!!!
