Green People Beauty Boost Skin Restore Review

Green People Beauty Boost Skin Restore Review

Happy Easter, little chicks! Since my last product review wasn't a positive one, I thought I'd share my thoughts on Green People Beauty Boost Skin Restore. It is, thankfully, a natural skincare product I have been loving, especially for days when I have tired skin. Labelled as the 'Number One for Radiant Skin', it's an interesting piece to add to your skincare collection. Let me tell you all about it including which high end product it is a clean dupe for! Green People Beauty Boost Skin Restore Review Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane? From the labelling it's not [...]
Living Nature Foundation Review

Living Nature Foundation Review

If I'm honest, most natural and organic 'foundations' have about as much coverage as a tinted moisturiser. Acne, angry blemishes, and bad bad skin days have sadly not been helped by the green beauty makeup I own. Late last year, I went through a really horrid acne phase (again!!)... maybe due to stress... I wish I knew... but my forehead and skin around my mouth kept breaking out in big (and I mean FAT ASS) spots that just... Would. Not. Go away. Annoying enough. However, working in a front of house position in hospitality, I was desperate to hide my bumpy, [...]

Purple Hallowe’en Nail Art

This year I decided to have a little fun and try out some spooky nail art, after being set a challenge by UK nail polish brand, Maggie Anne! Award-winning and 6 toxin-free, their polishes are high quality gel-effect in a range of vibrant colours. If you want to see how I created my purple Hallowe'en nail art, read on below.... Purple Hallowe'en Nail Art Ombre Base For the base of the nail art, I opted for an ombre effect. I thought this would be a cool backdrop for my flying bats and Hallowe'en silhouettes. To do this, I first painted two [...]

The Spa at Armathwaite Hall bath tea

Bath Tea for Silky Soft Skin

Today’s post is based on something I like to do sometimes after a stressful day, and that is making a fancy bath. When plain hot water is not good enough on these occasions, I like to add a few more lovely ingredients to transform the sad old bath into a luxurious spa. Bath Tea for Silky Soft Skin As a tea-drinker, the concept of a bath tea sounds rather brilliant. Making myself a human biscuit in a large bath-shaped teacup. I’ve never tried a bath tea before, so I’m excited to embark on a new bathing experience. The bath tea [...]

Green People Quinoa Body Care Range

Green People truly excel with reliable, natural and kind-to-skin beauty products. I've been a regular customer of theirs for a while now, so when I was sent the new Green People Quinoa body care range I knew I'd probably love it! Last June I reviewed the Green People quinoa and artichoke hair care range, which gave me super soft locks and are still firm favourites of mine. Now they've formulated a shower gel and deodorant also featuring the superfood quinoa. After trialling for a month (my shower gel is now empty!), here's my review... Green People Quinoa and Calendula Shower Gel Scent Ginger, [...]

TOTM Organic Pads and Tampons

TOTM Organic Pads and Tampons Review

One of the main early changes I made when transitioning to a green lifestyle was to start using organic cotton pads and tampons. As a sufferer of chronic period pain for three years, it has been a key element to help reduce monthly pain, and maintain healthy feminine care without the use of harmful synthetics. There are a small number of organic brands available in the UK to cater for the eco girl. This is my TOTM organic pads and tampons review. TOTM Organic Pads and Tampons Review Organic vs Synthetic TOTM organic pads and tampons* are made of non-GM cotton, meaning [...]
