Bottega Organica is a natural, chemical free skin care brand. The ingredients go straight from their farms in Italy and Upstate New York into the bottle. They offer this wonderful little sample pack for just the cost of shipping. Included in it are an eye serum, cleansing oil, facial oil, facial moisturizer, and a hand cream.
The texture of this serum is very interesting as far as eye products go. It is very liquidy. I would describe it as watery rather than oily. It has a bit of a learning curve if you are used to creams. It has a faint honey-like scent and is a light brown color.
This reminds me a lot of Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Acne Cleansing Oil. It has the same lemon-thyme scent and moisturizing texture. It feels and smells wonderful on my face!
Just a couple of drops of this ginger-scented oil goes a long way. It is incredibly moisturizing and smells wonderful. I wouldn’t, however, use it under makeup. It’s a very oily oil. I enjoy using it on relaxing, no-makeup days.
This oil based face cream is incredibly hydrating. It’s not something I would use under makeup. But applying this in combination with the Morning Face Oil smells wonderful. The ginger and vanilla scents go together very well!
During the dry, colder months powerful hand moisturizers are always great to have on hand (ha). This hand balm is just that. It’s oil based but absorbs into the skin quickly and effectively. According to Bottega Organica’s website, this balm is supposed to be orange scented. To me, it only has a gentle olive oil scent, but it doesn’t linger.
All of these products are a liquidy formula. The eye serum is a watery consistency and the rest are oil based. I wouldn’t use any of these under makeup. For someone with oily skin, I think these will work but I’d be careful with the amount I apply. For dry skin, these oils will be loved by your skin! I have combination skin and my dry, flaky patches drink the oils right up.

Eyeshadow is a beautiful addition to any makeup look whether you go for neutral shades or bright colors. Or maybe you prefer cream shadows over powder. For many of us, no matter the amount of effort we put into blending our beautiful pigments, it always creases. Every time we close our eyes the is a nice thick band of clumpy eyeshadow in the crease of out eyelid. Yum. My current go-to product, to avoid that clumpy issue, is Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick…read more
Vapour Beauty makes beauty products from non-toxic, natural, organic and mineral ingredients. All of their products are a beautiful quality inside beautiful packaging. On their website, there is a list of dupes where you can find clean replacements for your favorite cult products. Their Lipstick, in the color Purr, is a dupe for Nars’ Lipstick in the color Sex Machine. I’ve had heart eyes for Nars’ Sex Machine for quite a while but did not want the less than desirable ingredients. I’m so glad I found Vapour’s Purr…read more
