Lately, I have been really paranoid about my skin. Any new spot seems to be so magnified for me. Since last year, I have been very meticulous with the products I put on–especially on my face. I remember one morning when I saw a new sun spot on my face and decided that I will use facial sunblock from then on. Since then, I have tried to be very conscious with the products I review and test, leaning towards finding natural and organic cosmetics.
Lotus Cosmetics USA is not yet available in the Philippines but they provide a wide range of all-natural cosmetics. I’m lucky to have their lippies and I’m loving it so far.

Organic or All-Natural lipstick has not yet hit the Philippine market but how I wish local beauty companies would start bringing in Organic lippies soon.. I love the fact that Lotus Cosmetics’ lippies do not contain Parabens, Petro-Chemicals, Phthalates, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, or Synthetic Dyes. It’s perfectly good for your lips. The formula is non drying, although the staying power is not that long. But who cares? I’d rather reapply a product as often as I want knowing that it’s safe that have something stuck on my lips that’s going to have harmful effects in the long run.
