I rarely use body lotion/butters/creams, or any body care products for that matter. I was simply being, negligent, or rather, I didn’t think I need it.
For real? NO, I’m just LAZY.
I’ve bought quite a few in the past, only to let them prettify the vanity desk. But, seeing my mom quite religiously put hers every night and her skin is always soft and moisturized (obviously), I thought that I should try to get myself on that bandwagon.
I was generously sent by Evete Naturals four out of the five variants in their Body Butter collection. To know about the brand more, you can read my review on the Lip Balms here.
Lately, I’ve been seeing many local Indonesians come up with handmade beauty brands. To be honest, I never touch local brands anymore because I’ve tried a few in the past and they just didn’t work for me. Too many pet peeves, the biggest one being the pungent artificial scent. And the too-affordable price tags alarm me too. Call me skeptical, sure, because I am.
With this new breed of handmade cosmetics, only a handful that piqued my interest. One of them is Evete Naturals, a Yogyakarta-based small brand. It pronounces as “i-vet” which means feminine in Italian. The people behind the brand are three best friends with chemical engineering background who have a love for beauty products and a passion for a healthier lifestyle. The brand prides itself in using quality natural ingredients with no mineral oil, no parabens and no artificial colorant.
Currently, the brand offers two products, lip balms and body butters. Today, I’ll be reviewing the lip balms first.
