The Friendly Facial Cleansing Bar

When I saw the new range of gorgeous sounding soaps from Friendly Soap on the MyPure website, I just knew I had to try the cocoa butter facial cleansing one. Mostly because I’ve always hated using bars of soap on my face (dry, tight skin, requiring lots of moisturiser afterwards) and I wanted to see…

Living Nature… Mineral Powder Perfection

I love mineral foundation. Mostly because it’s a natural product, without a tonne of chemicals thrown in, but also because it gives a great coverage and a very fresh and natural look. For every day make-up, I prefer to look as though I’m not caked in the stuff! My only problem with mineral make-up is…

Love Perfume, Love Acorelle.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever thought about what goes into making the perfume you happily spritz onto your skin on a regular basis. Many perfumes contain a mix of chemicals that have been linked to hormone disruption and cancer. Many of the ingredients in perfumes can also lead to allergies, and affect those with…

Green & Sustainable – Native Unearthed Deodorant

Native Unearthed prove that our ancestors didn’t smell, and not only that, they were far smarter than us. We spend hours of our days mixing up chemical concoctions, when our ancestors knew that what they needed was already provided by the earth. They used natural volcanic crystals with exceptional properties, and no side effects or…

Madara – Natural Gem of the Baltic

I’ve written many times about Madara products over the past year or so. Each and every time I try something new from them, I’m always impressed with the quality and the gentle effectiveness. My skin is always left in better condition, and I’ve never had a bad reaction to any of the ingredients. The balancing…

Love Shea – Key Lime Pie Body Moisturiser

I absolutely adore multi-use beauty products, and I’ve¬†discovered a wonderful Shea Butter moisturiser¬†from Love Shea which is suitable for both hair and body. I have to admit to not having dry enough hair to use this kind of product for this purpose, but I’m sure that many of you do. I’ll therefore be reviewing it…

Find Skin Balance with Tomatoes

What’s the secret to finding balance in your life? I’m not sure I’m quite ready to answer that deep a question just yet, but I can tell you that the secret to finding balance for your skin is tomatoes! Yes To… Tomatoes, to be exact! The Yes To range covers pretty much every skin type,…

Home… Smell The Hedgerow

I was just pondering on how many posts I write about candles and making your home smell nice. To be honest, I seem to have an obsession in the range that suggests I have a really awful smelling home, or that I think everyone else’s homes smell like a pig sty. I must clear this…

New Year, New Cleaning Products?

New Year, New You? Is your resolution to switch to natural cleaning products to minimise your environmental impact? Perhaps you’ve started Veganuary, and you need some cruelty free cleaning options. Well, I know it’s a bit weird to write a blog post on toilet cleaners, but it’s something we all need and use, right? Not…
