Hi lovelies, when I say RED, what does come to your mind first? Is it love, roses, wine or something else? For me it was all those and it is the colour that inspired my first order from Bottega Verde review. Let’s discover what I got, the gift with my order, my honest impression of them, plus pics of the results. Stay tuned until the end of this article, as I have a special discount, just for my readers.
BOTTEGA VERDE REVIEW
First, let me tell you why I chose to shop from Bottega Verde. If you follow my beauty reviews for a while, you already know that I love natural products. I believe they are the best choice for your skin and health, without those pesky chemicals. Now, many people believe that natural = crazy expensive. While it might be true for some brands, Bottega Verde is surely affordable. Let’s view the first product and see if apart from affordable they are of quality or not.
RED GRAPES BOTTEGA VERDE BATH FOAM
I started getting ready for my red themed date night with a shower. I used the red grapes bath gel and foam called ”Uva Rossa bagnodoccia”, which was actually totally free, as it is a gift for orders over a certain amount. It is made of a delicate extract of red grapes from the beautiful region of Tuscany. It makes a lovely foam and it doesn’t need a big quantity. It smells sweet and it does hydrate the skin. Its scent stays for a few hours on the skin.
I also have to admit that I love the packaging, it looks like a wine bottle and it is very cute in the bathroom. A big plus is that its cap doesn’t brake nails, it is easy to open. Regarding the label, at first I thought that it is made of paper and I was wondering how will hold up near so much water, but do not worry, it is made of plastic that is meant to look like paper. Clever!
BOTTEGA VERDE REVIIEW SHAMPOO
Next, I washed my hair with this shampoo made of Brazilian nuts oil and red fruits, for colored hair. I was curious to see if my color is going to go literally down the drain but this does its job, and my hair color didn’t ”bleed” more than it does with my other regular shampoo. I washed it twice and it makes a good foam, at first a little, then a lot more at the second wash. I felt my hair clean and nice after it. It has a fluid consistency and a pleasant smell.
BOTTEGA VERDE REVIEW CONDITIONER
After that, I applied a conditioner made of silk proteins.
It promises to take care of wavy hair and make it shiny. As you can see from my photos below, it did keep its promise, it entangled my hair and overall I am pleased with what it does, because it makes my hair soft without making it look greasy or flat. Plus, it didn’t strip it of its color. And I love love love this conditioner’s scent, it is fruity, almost as strawberry. The texture is not very fluid, which helps in applying a little. It stays on the hair while it activates and it doesn’t drip.
BOTTEGA VERDE REVIEW BODY CREAM
While I was waiting for my conditioner to work on my hair, I hydrated my body’s skin with the cream from the ”Uva Rossa” range. This red grapes body cream smells amazing! It has a pastel pink color and it is easy to apply. In under 5 minutes, it enters the skin and you can dress up. I love how it calms the skin and it gives it a satin finish. The scent is also pleasant and cheers you up. The pump is practical and again, the packaging is very creative.
BOTTEGA VERDE REVIEW NAIL POLISH
Last but not least, I painted my nails using the nail polish in medium pink, which is a pink full of magenta, with red tones. It has a small brush and the fluidity is quite high. In my opinion, that is good because it is easier to apply two fluid layers (apply one, let it dry for two minute then apply another) rather than having to fight and mold a sticky, thick polish in one layer. I just wish the brush was a bit pointier, as this one spreads like a paper fan but after just one hand I got used to it. I was surprised of how strong this nail polish is, I am writing this article in its forth day on my hands and the nail polish is still there, with very little chips but nothing visible unless you are extremely close to my nails. I have to say I am impressed so yes, you guessed it, I will order more nail polishes along with other products next time. I must also mention that this is a regular polish, even if it says gel, it does not need an UV lamp to dry, it air-dries.
Here are the textures for all products mentioned above, except the nail polish because that you can see on my nails.
As you can see, preparing for a date night can be easy and fun with the right products.
I hope my article helped you in trying grape extract and silk proteins, or a new nail polish (we never have enough red ones). Overall I am honestly happy with my order from Bottega Verde (website here), the products are looking great and they do work. They have a good price and orders have gifts. I am excited to make my next order and share it with you.
