Benecos Natural Nail Polish in Peach Sorbet - Review*

For a long time, natural cosmetics had a bland, generic look, limited product choices and, generally, high prices. However, this is no longer the case because at Benecos we offer bright, modern, cruelty-free products all at affordable prices. Our products are natural and organic and our make-up range is filled with a variety of colours, so say goodbye to dull and boring and hello to the vibrant and dynamic world of Benecos colour cosmetics! The Benecos range is BDIH certified except the happy nails nail polish range which is now free from 8 harmful chemicals (toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, phthalates, parabens, silicones, TPHP and colophony). Over 72% of our products are vegan, this means that they do not contain any animal ingredients or derivatives and that our products contain less harmful chemicals than other cosmetic brands. We are continually developing our products to ensure effectivity and results to bring you the best natural and organic products possible. Our team are constantly on the lookout for the newest make-up trends to make sure our cosmetic collection remains modern and fresh.

Benecos Natural Nail Polish, Peach Sorbet is a beautiful on-trend pastel creamy peach shade reminiscent of hot summer days eating sorbets. No base coat is needed with Benecos Nail Varnish but for even longer-lasting chip-free nails finish with a coat of our Nail Polish in Crystal.

I've never really been one for nail art or anything like that, but I do like to take care of my nails. The second product I liked the look of to review from Mypure this month, was this Benecos Nail Polish in Peach Sorbet. With nail colours, I've always preferred darker reds, pinks and everything in between as I think that's what suits my nails best. I tend to steer clear of light colours though as I can't cope with applying so many layers to get a good outcome. So I was a little disappointed with this colour as I thought it looked dark enough to skip all the layers. I ended up needing two or more layers of the product, and as you can see from my photos above I may have needed more. This was a shame as I really like the Peach Sorbet colour as I find it really pretty and Spring-like. Besides this colour, I actually have quite a few shades that I'm in love with and use quite often from Benecos' range so I think it's about finding that perfect shade for you.

Effectively reduces skin imperfections. The lavera SOS Blemish Control provides immediate results. The redness of spots is reduced and skin is calmed. Its concentrated formulation with zinc and natural salicylic acid from willow bark extract minimizes blemishes, clears up spots, fights bacteria and helps prevent new eruptions. The transparent gel is easy to apply and is ideal for when you are out and about.

I've suffered from spots for as long as I can remember, so the first product I choose to review from Mypure this month was this SOS Anti Blemish Control Spot Treatment from Lavera. The tube itself that the product comes in is a handy size to take away with you as it's small and compact. I also like that the item has a fine nib to help apply the product directly to any blemishes without it going everywhere and wasting any of product. The product itself is a clear liquid and when dried it creates a thin see able barrier over your blemish, because of this I prefer to apply before I go to sleep so that no one else can see this! I found that the product helped reduce redness and that it calmed my blemishes down quicker than without applying the gel. Overall I'm quite happy with this little item and it's now part of my night time routine.
