These days, a skincare product needs to tick a lot of boxes for me to buy it. First of al, I will only buy it if I have used up everything that falls into the same category, I really don’t want two of almost the same thing. My second demand is that it needs to be either zero waste, or have minimal packaging (preferably no plastic). My last demand is that it needs to be vegan. I am beginning to feel like a bit of a snob here :D. Anyway, I found this multipurpose solid butter by Lamazuna, and it had everything I was looking for.
The solid butter has very minimal ingredients, consisting of cocoa butter, baobab oil, coconut oil and fragrance. It smells like a mixture of coconut and marzipan. It feels similar to the massage bars by Lush. When it comes into contact with the skin, it melts and leaves a layer of oils that you can then rub into your skin. It is absolutely amazing for very dry skin. I have been using it for my dry spots on my forehead, nose and between my eyebrows and it works like a charm.The bar is quite little, so I only use it on my face. This way it will probably last quite a long time. You can also use it on your body, to massage or to prevent stretch marks on pregnant bellies.
Lamazuna is a french brand that sells reusable cotton rounds, menstrual cups and solid cosmetics. I have their solid toothpaste, and that one works well and lasts ages. All of their products are vegan and the cardboard packaging is compostable. Lamazuna is definitely a brand that is worth promoting. The prices are not too bad either, most solid cosmetics cost €12,50.
