More and more of my finds seem to come from Australia. This makes sense if you think about it. There is a relatively wealthy, white population that is keen to prevent and repair sun damage, plus the government has imposed stringent standards (that put those in the US to shame) for organic products. In this fine tradition comes NVEY ECO.

A relative newcomer to Sephora, most of the range can only be bought online (such as the eyeshadow that I wrote about a few weeks ago). The stores have just started to carry NVEY ECO's concealer, called Organic Erase. It feels rich and creamy, yet light. It does the basic job of a concealer, but only if you have a relatively peaches and cream complexion. The big limitation of this product is that it comes in only one - pale - shade.

Nevertheless, NVEY is to be saluted for cramming in as many good things as possible into a humble zit coverer. The main ingredients are natural oils (some of which are anti-oxidant grape and carrot) and waxes. The color is a mineral (mica). At my count there are seven botanicals (marjoram and honeysuckle, for example). Then there are vitamins C and E. And that is it. No parabens or other preservatives (the vitamin E acts as a natural anti-bacterial).

It isn't cheap at $30, but you know it is doing no evil, perhaps some good, and a little goes a long way.
