If there is one thing I can say with 100% honesty I absolutely adore about what I do it is the times when I get to test face masks! I just love them more than I can express in words! I try to test at least make one per week and sometimes even more depending on the needs of my skin at that particular moment. I love the feeling of really taking care of my skin and it makes me feel better both inside and out. So on that note I decided that today I would focus my post on my 5 favourite 100% natural face masks that I have tested thoroughly and fully approve!View Post
Last September I posted on Instagram about my hair loss and how much it was concerning me. I was losing clumps of my hair not only every time I shampoo’d or brushed it but also just by running my fingers through my hair. It was starting to have a real impact on my confidence particularly because I had experienced this exact same issue a few years earlier due to a Keratin Treatment I had mistakenly tried and reliving this experience was quite painful and hard to deal with. In an attempt to remedy the hair loss I was currently experiencing I started to do a lot of research into the subject and concluded that the best route of action would be to put in place an effective natural care routine. I now feel happy and proud to say that I solved the problem through perseverance and the careful application of my care which has made me feel so much better about myself again. My hair loss issue has been greatly reduced and new healthy baby hair has once again started to appear! So today I thought I would break down the routine that helped me in the hope that it could help others who might be similarly afflicted.
FYI, hair loss can be due to a myriad of varied reasons: fatigue, stress, change of season, hormonal variations, psychological shock, poor diet or too aggressive hair care … so it goes without saying that it is vitally important to first identify the reasons of your hair loss before trying to tackle it as there will never be a one fix solution.View Post
It’s been ages since I last shared my organic morning skincare routine and as I update my essential daily product list every so often, mostly when I find new products I love, I thought it was about time I should do a little refresher! My combination skin type is annoyingly still the same as always, prone to dehydration in some areas and prone to spots in others! It’s not always easy to take care of my type of skin, but through rigorous testing of different product combinations, I think I have managed to find a really good balance.
So, here is my natural and organic morning routine that I have been sticking to every day for the last several months and after all that time I can confidently say that it suits my skin wonderfully. View Post
With Christmas just around the corner it’s once again time to start choosing which Advent calendar you are going to spoil yourself with this year! Advent calendars have all of a sudden become ubiquitous and it seems like every cosmetic brand now has one! I am definitely seeing more and more organic/natural brands selling them too and recently featured one from Mademoiselle BIO on my Instastories which is already out of stock! Not to worry though as I have managed to find another really nice one if you didn’t manage to get your hands on one in time. It’s from the brand Green People and has an absolutely amazing product selection hidden inside! So, let’s get straight to the most important question, what does the Green People Advent Calendar contain? View Post
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
