    Ecosoapia – Natural Soap Review

    I’m really loving natural products at the moment. I’ve tried body creams and the loveliest shampoo and conditioner combo which you can read about HERE, among other things. It’s just nice to use products that don’t contain any nasty ingredients that you can’t read the names of! It’s better for your skin and for the environment. I was sent a bottle of Ecosoapia to try and the first thing you notice about it is the label. Just WOW! It was designed by David Smith who is regarded as the best calligrapher in the world and you can see why! The detail that has gone into the design is just incredible…

    Homemade Salt Scrub

    I was lucky enough to be gifted the most amazing Himalayan Pink salt at the end of last month from Monsoon Season. I’ve been using it loads in my cooking and I’m absolutely in love with it! It brings out the flavours of my dishes so well just from the smallest pinch. I actually called it “the saltiest salt I’ve ever had”. Well last night I decided to try out one of its other uses and make a Salt Scrub. I never realised how easy they are to make and I actually had the ingredients lying around the house! All you need is: A small jar with a lid 6…

    June 2018 Glossybox Review

    I decided not to do a reveal this month as I have quite a few beauty products to post about as it is and I am struggling to find the time to write up posts. It hasn’t taken me long to make way through the products though so here’s my review for this month! For anyone who doesn’t know about Glossybox, it’s a monthly subscription box that comes through the post and contains 5 different beauty products. It’s a great way of trying things you wouldn’t necessarily buy yourself and it’s only £10. We have the pink box again this month which is as beautiful as ever. This colour just…

    E’lifexir – The Miracle Cream To Solve All Our Body Woes?

    I’m a bit of a sceptic when it comes to beauty products making bold claims as I’ve not had the greatest experiences in the past: “Gradual Tan = look like you’ve dragged a teabag down your limbs!” These creams and gels don’t actually claim to be miracle workers but with name like “Flat Tummy” and “Body Lift” I know people would get excited and expect them to be! E’lifexir promote themselves as the “Next Generation of Natural Body Care Products” with 99% of their ingredients being totally natural. They are vegan friendly and contain no nasties, are also hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types. I was asked which of…

    May Glossybox Review

    This month was a special edition box and it was SO pretty! I keep all the special edition boxes so I’m sure this one will find a new home as something else at some point. This box was definitely a pamper one which was really nice, I actually had to take time out to try some of the products rather than fitting them in to my usual daily routine like a normally would. So let’s just have a recap on what was in the box: I’ve got to admit, I do feel a little bit cheated this month as there were technically 5 products and an “Extra treat” I feel…

    Naturally Beautiful Haircare

    When I think about what shampoos and conditioners contain I just imagine a lot of chemical sounding ingredients that I can’t pronounce. I have real issues with my hair and scalp and finding a product that works for me is quite hard. I have an itchy scalp, greasy roots and dry ends so a real combination! Shampoos can really irritate my scalp but I need something that actually cleans my hair. In other words, I hate finding shampoos! When I got offered the chance to try natural products, I’ve got to admit, I was a little sceptical but I’ll try anything once so requested the Argan and Amla set. I…

    May Glossybox Reveal

    It feels like forever since I received my last Glossybox, I think it’s because the last one came early and I managed to use all the products pretty much straight away which makes a change! This month is a special edition box and it is just beautiful!

    April Glossybox Review

    I really do love receiving my Glossybox each month, you get such a variation of products to try and some of them you wouldn’t pick up yourself in store. This month was very much a makeup filled box which I always manage to use pretty quickly so it hasn’t taken long for me to review the items really.
