EcoEscolhas – Vegan products – Review

In this post I am going to show you the set of vegan products received by EcoEscolhas and what I think about them! Hope you like it! 

As you already know  you can find here my sincere opinion about the products. Luckily so far I have been loving everything I have received, will it continue like this?

Moisturizing lipstick – Benecos

This was the first product I tried as soon as I received this set of vegan products. There is no way to do not like it, it smells like raspberry and moisturizes super well, without leaving the lips “oily”, as some do. The packaging is of an adorable pink. It is organic and enriched with shea butter and raspberry seed oil. You can find it here.

Shower gel and body lotion – Benecos

From the same brand I received these two samples: a shower gel and a body lotion. The first one is an orange and sea-buckthorn shower gel and it has a soft and pleasant aroma. I was quite happy with this product because it leaves a pleasant scent on the skin and leaves it very moisturized! You can find it here. The second one is an apricot and elderberry body lotion is and I can tell you that it is the creams that are most quickly absorbed! It does not leave oily skin, but rather soft, and has a soft aroma of apricot. Liked it! You can find it here.

Nail polish – Benecos

The third product of Benecos is a nail polish enriched with avocado oil and biotin, in a shade of pink. It is free of toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, phthalates, colophony, parabens, silicone and organohalogen compounds. This was the second product I tried. I had to test in my toenails because washing dishes, cooking and so on would not allow me to realize its durability. You can find it here.

In this photo you can see that even if you put only one layer of nail polish, the color is well defined and it is beautiful! I can say that with more than a week walking barefoot and beating everywhere, the nails are still great!

Eyelash mascara – Benecos

This is the last product of Benecos! An eyelash mask enriched with vitamin E. You can find it here.

Unfortunately, this product disappointed me a little. I love eyelash mascara – it’s one of the few things I use to make-up myself, so I was very excited about this product. You can find it here. As you can see from the images below, the mascara really gives some volume, but glue the eyelashes immensely – I had to separate them, otherwise it looked like I had no eyelashes (laughs). Having said that, of course I will continue to use, but it gives more work to get the same result that would be with another mascara.


Balancing citrus super tonic – Odylique

I am a basic person regards to skin care, so I have never used tonic in my life (laughs). But, I am amazed, I fell in love with this product! I usually use it after washing my face with my charcoal soap, to moisturize the skin without adding fat (like a moisturizer). It works flawlessly. It smells very soft and pleasant  Just a few drops and the skin is ready for a new day! Can be found here.

 Organic Coconut Scrub – Odylique

This product although it smells super good and really does well its work I could not adapt to it. I can not like the texture and feel it on my skin. So, if you like this type of exfoliation the product is great, if you do not like to feel the granules, this product is not for you. You can find it here.

Maca mask 3 in 1 – Odylique

This mask was a total disaster (laughs). I was expecting a lot, but when I used it, I ended up getting full of itching and red face – I had an allergic reaction. So, I can not tell you whether it is good or bad, everyone has their sensibilities and it seems that my skin did not like this product. Can be found here.

Orange, Lemon and Grapefruit with Chamomile Shampoo – Bentley Organic

This was probably the biggest surprise ever! As soon as I opened and put the shampoo in my hands I was automatically teleported to Portugal, more precisely, to the orange tree in my garden. If you have an orange tree, you know that sweet and strong smell of orange! And this is exactly what this shampoo smells like, it’s a wonder This product makes a very soft foam and by washing only once the head, it was well clean and the hair was very soft – I usually put coconut oil and this time it wasn’t needed . You can find it here.
