Until I discovered the wonderful Sweet and Safe Mascara from Absolution I was continually jumping back and forth between conventional and natural mascaras as I hadn’t managed to find a natural one that managed the job quite as well as their counterparts. It was the one area of my beauty regime that I just hadn’t managed to switch over and I kept having a little nagging voice in the back of my head telling me it had to be possible to find an alternative. As soon as I tried the Absolution mascara though I switch over instantly and never went back (and of course wrote a blog post about it which you can find here). It managed to make me completely forget about all the other mascaras for quite a while…….that is until I found Lily Lolo’s……Big Lash! Straight away I could see that this one was a real contender for the crown so I thought it was a great opportunity to pit these two against each other in a battle royale! What I want in a good mascara is length, separation and of course volume so let’s see which one comes out on top! View Post
Today, as is it here in absolutely sweltering conditions, I thought it might be the perfect time to share my favorite summer beauty products for warm weather. I can’t believe we’re already at the end of july. Summer seems to be speeding by so fast but we’ve been exceptionally lucky this year in UK. The sun has been out non stop for weeks now so it got me thinking about the beauty products I have been loving and think are especially great for the summer months. Here are my favourite 7 organic products! View Post
Today, all my attentions have been focused on organic makeup, more specifically the latest new products from Absolution which were created in collaboration with make-up artist Christophe Danchaud! Absolution is a French natural cosmetic brand certified organic by Ecocert. They have a wide range of skincare and bodycare products as well as a range of makeup. Recently, they expanded their makeup line to include three new products: a mascara, an eyeliner and four shades of concealer.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to test these little cuties so i could give my impression………….and make sure you read to the very end of the review as there is a wicked little surprise!! View Post
I constantly have people asking me where to shop for natural/organic beauty products and the main reason they give me when they are doing this is that they feel not only overwhelmed by the selection of shops available but also that they have no way of telling which is the best. The one repeating theme seems to be that everyone feels completely lost within this marketplace as there doesn’t seem to be a clear and decisive market leader. The funniest part of this is that it was these exact same people who I used to hear complaining that there weren’t enough options of shops they could go to buy their natural beauty products. It now seems that everyday there is new online green shop opening and while we are all grateful for the ever expanding choice and competition the downside is that it just seems to add to the growing confusion. The next complaint that follows soon after is of course that with the huge number of naturals brands joining this marketplace these same people have no idea what to purchase as they scroll through the thousands of options on the thousands of shops!

I mostly speak about skincare, bodycare and haircare on my blog but I always seem to forget to give equal attention to makeup. This also seems to be the case in my daily life too as for the last few weeks I’ve been using the same makeup every single day! Throughout the summer months I prefer having a natural, warm look to my makeup. I would describe it as a fresh, bronze day look with a subtle glow, perhaps the term I am looking for is Sun Kissed? So for this post I wanted to share with you which products I use to achieve this look particularly as it’s really simple and easy and takes less than 10 minutes to finish! View Post
