Sukin Body Creme

Feeling Tropical: Sukin Moisture Rich Body Crème Review

For most days, I like to use good old coconut oil to moisturise in the morning after a bath. There are times when coconut oil is a royal pain in the arse. For example when your brain turns to potato and you forget that coconut oil is an oil. And that getting dressed with oil on your hands will saturate your clothes with oil. Which will then take 7 washes to come out. Or the time you put too much on your under arms and you had oil patches on your new Topshop tee in said area for a fortnight. [...]
Natural Being Manuka Cleanser with ribbon and white flowers

Natural Being Manuka Cleanser Review

Cleanser is just one of those beauty items I never seem to have enough of. I feel like I go through the stuff like water. It is the staple in my nighttime skincare routine. And by staple I mean, the only product I'm using in the evening lately. This is partly laziness, but mostly because I find that a good cleanser does everything I need in one go. There are only three things I care about after 5.15pm: taking my makeup off, getting into pyjamas, and one other thing I can't think of right now. As a girl that frequently has stroppy [...]

St Valentine’s Pamper Night

I've seen a lot of people saying it this St Valentine's weekend but it's true - every day should be love yourself day! As it is all lovey dovey today I thought I'd pick out some of my favourite indulging beauty products for an extra special St Valentine's pamper night. This might be something you'd like to do before getting ready for a date, or getting ready for a night with Netflix. This year I'm afraid it's just me watching a very dashing Tom Hardy and these treats I bundled up for this post... Balm Balm Frankincense Deep Cleansing Balm [...]
COCO Hair Oil with carnations

COCO Hair Full Review and Giveaway!

Hey folks so I'm really excited to be doing my first ever giveaway on April Lily Rose! Yay!

The lovely people at British brand, The Little Health Co, were kind enough to send it to me to try, and as I think it's such an awesome natural product I want you to try it too! There are three bottles of COCO Hair (100ml) up for grabs - read on to find out how to enter. COCO Hair A [...]
Three natural products for soft hair

3 Natural Products for Soft Bouncy Hair

Since getting blonde balayage last month after a four-year break from highlighting my hair, it's all come flooding back to me now how much maintenance is involved! Especially if you have your hair lightened, you'll understand the battle with keeping your locks looking and feeling soft and healthy. As my hair is also fine and quite thin, it is less tolerant to colouring and can easily become brittle. This is my tried and tested method of preventing hair from becoming dry and damaged as a result of bleach colour-treatment using only 3 natural products. Step 1: Hair Oil This is something [...]
Green People DD Moisturiser

Green People Tinted DD Moisturiser

Hands up pale girls who have the problem with finding an ivory foundation that is actually anywhere close to the colour of white ivory!?? I bring forth good news - the hunt is over, there is a brand that have created a tinted moisturiser that (hold your breath) isn't orange. It's hard to believe, I know, but finally the Snow Whites out there can use a product that doesn't need to be mixed with anything else to make it match our porcelain skin. As if this couldn't be amazing enough, it also helps prevent wrinkles... Mind blown. Could it be [...]

January Mini Survival Kit

Freezing cold, wind, rain, snow, winter blues, anxiety and difficulties with low confidence (thanks to a crappy break-up) have started to take their toll on me this month. Why is it when you're going through stress the natural reaction is to not look after yourself? Since when does self-destruct help any matter? After neglecting my body proper nutrition, and surviving instead on Amazon Prime movies, tea, rage and excessive worrying, I realised taking good care of myself needed to be part of my healing process. I have found a few things that have helped me survive what has so far been [...]

Rio Rosa Mosqueta Cream Cleanser & Rosehip Seed Oil

Winter Skincare: Rio Rosa Mosqueta

This month I have decided to try something new in preparation for the cold winter ahead (currently upon us in the form of snow I think). My usual cream cleanser finished and I wanted to do what proper ladies do and start a fancy skincare routine. Who knows, maybe one of these days someone might notice and comment on my radiance. I hope it makes me look like a golden angel with this thing called glow that all girls want to shine off their faces. On to the review... Rio Rosa Mosqueta Cream Cleanser Sensitive skin and eczema-friendly After testing [...]

Pai Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream

Pai is a natural skincare brand I associate with luxury. All their products look beautiful and the natural ingredients they select sound amazing. I waited a while to try one of Pai's infamous moisturisers (I feel like I am completely late to join the bandwagon!) but I finally got my hands on the Pai Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream*. Read on to see how I got on with this cream after testing for two months... Packaging on point My expectations were high for this brand. At a retail price of £34 for a 50ml bottle, it's not cheap. I wondered if [...]
