NAVA Bastet’s Spring Ice Cream Review

Every spring, Nocturne Alchemy (NAVA) release a plenitude of colourful, bright perfumes that embody the cheerfulness of springtime. One of the most popular collections seems to be the Bastet’s Spring Ice Cream, so I imagine that its resurgence is good news for plenty of NAVA fans.

I’m still a NAVA newbie and therefore a lot of scents are completely unknown to me. That’s why I’ve opted for decants to test them out. Please keep in mind that these were purchased in 2018 and they were aged for half a year before I went on to review them. As always, YMMV! These perfumes are not available all year long, so do keep checking the NAVA website for updates.

Melvita Indigo Oil

I believe I’ve always taken good care of my tresses but I started taking haircare more seriously once I had bleached and dyed my hair back in July 2018. Prior to bleaching, I could use only a tiny amount of oil on my scalp before it would make a mess. Even now when my hair is of medium-to-high porosity, using such products is risky business. I always worry I’ll have to spend ages trying to get oil out of my hair.

In October 2018, Melvita released haircare products formulated with indigo oil. Melvita makes this oil from a plant called Persicaria tinctoria that is a source of indigo dye. As you can see from my photos below, the oil isn’t actually indigo but raspberry pink (just like my hair was!).

Nelipot Diven Shampoo

It will probably come as no surprise if I tell you that I’m becoming more and more interested hair products that are natural and/or made by a small business (see here or here). When I was at the BBMU conference back in November 2018, I got a chance to chat with Nelipot representatives. They showcased their newest products – one of them can be used as a lubricant but I’ll be a tease and keep you waiting for its review 🙂 – and I was lucky enough to receive a sample of their Diven Shampoo.

At the time of writing this post (19 February 2019), the newest Nelipot offering is available only on the Slovenian market. However, Natalija from their social media team told me that this shampoo would become available on the Croatian and international websites on 8 March 2019. Soon!

For now, Nelipot Diven Shampoo is available in a 50 ml sample size. This should be enough for 6 to 10 washes, depending on how much shampoo you use for each wash.
