Pandora’s Box #10 with Consumerista

pandora-consumerista03

 

Beauty Pie’s signature category: the notorious Pandora’s Box. This time we’ve teamed up with Consumerista — probably the best blogger writing about natural beauty in Russian. You can also check her updates on the instagram — not only in Russian. So that’s what Consumerista told us:

nat-001

Lately, cosmetics labeled as “eco” and “organic” have gradually replaced all the other bottles, jars and tubes in my bathroom. Although I do agree with some of the points Aline made in her post about making conscious consumer choices and not falling for marketing traps, I still want to sort out all the reasons why I’ve decided to switch to natural cosmetics.

About a year ago I shared a couple of products that I’d discovered last spring. So I thought to myself: “I should write the second post in this series” and this time it’s going to be about cosmetics and instruments, which I’ve been digging this winter.
