Ksoni – Black Owned Vegan Beauty

In addition to protesting, signing petitions, making donations, and making calls to government officials, another great way to make your voice heard and support Black Lives Matter is to purchase from black-owned beauty and fashion brands. Many people don’t realise that the financial impact of COVID-19 has generally affected black-owned brands harder than others. Housing…

Make Your Own Tea Toner with just 3 Ingredients

Beauty products can be expensive, not to mention laden with all sorts of synthetic chemicals and wrapped in layers of plastic. Even if you buy natural, chemical free, zero waste products, it’s nice to be self sufficient and make your own – plus you can save loads of money. So today, I am going to…

Clarify Your Skin Naturally with Madara

I’m a huge fan of toners – they provide a refreshing finish to your cleansing routine, and sweep off any final traces of make-up. A toner in the summer, mixed with a little water is also a wonderful way to keep fresh and cool. Getting the right toner, however, is the key to radiant skin….

Pure Chimp Super Tea (Matcha Green Tea)!

It’s the New Year and time for all those promises to yourself to get healthy, fit or try new things. Well, Matcha Green Tea is certainly a health boost (especially if you’re trying to cut down on your coffee intake) and it’s probably new for many people too! I was very kindly sent a tub of…

Random Beauty… Smooth, Calm & Hydrate your Combination Skin!

Even if you have oily or combination skin, it’s important to moisturise. Cleansing alone simply strips your natural oils away, so in response, your skin will pump out more sebum and oils in a bid to replace those lost, and you’ll be back to where you started! The secret is finding the right moisturiser for your…

Beautiful Minerals

Several years ago, I watched a TV programme hosted by Sarah Beeny about chemicals found in make-up, cosmetics and toiletries. I was so horrified, I dumped everything I was using and went out and purchased new stuff the very next day! Yes, I do act on impulse, but only if it also feels right –…
