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 [...]

Natural makeup to fake looking awake

Guest Post – Fake It ‘Til You Wake It

Today I'm so pleased to feature a guest blog post from Bristol-based beauty blogger, Sasha Seaward. She is the writer behind Balanced Beauty Bristol, and has some amazing tips for how to look refreshed when you don't feel it. Fake It 'Til You Wake It So as tired mumma with a toddler who has rubbish nighttime habits, I have picked up more than a few tips and tricks to make myself look just that little bit more awake. (Or on the really bad days... you know, just to look ALIVE is good). In fact I'd say I was a bit of an [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Famous Dave's Tan

Greenwashing | Famous Dave’s Tan

If the completely fickle British weather allows, summertime is skirt weather: the only time of the year the skin above my knees sees any daylight whatsoever, so this is when I like to whip out the fake tan! Unlike my lucky olive-skinned sister, I have pasty pale skin. The type of pale skin that is almost translucent and makes me feel like I am a jelly fish. And the very same pasty pale skin which down-right refuses to tan naturally and people ask me if I'm unwell. To achieve summer bronzed skin, and make myself look a bit more human, [...]
Nourish balance moisturiser

Nourish Moisturiser for Combination Skin

The woes of combination skin. How do you tackle excess oil, shine and dry patches on your face all at the same time? Thank you dear face for deciding to be everything difficult and not just choosing one skin issue. This is especially annoying when trying to find a moisturiser that will multi-task and treat all these problem areas as well as acne flare-ups. In the past I have found many products that are good for either dry skin or oily skin but not both (I'm sure every girl has faced this same distressing calamity). Lately I have been trialling [...]
5 Raw Honey Recipes To Heal Acne Naturally | aprillilyrose.com

6 Raw Honey Acne Remedies

Raw honey is the most effective, most powerful and safest natural remedy I have found to help treat and heal my cystic acne. Six months ago I switched from my prescription antibiotic topical lotion from my GP which I had been using for 2 years, to simply a jar of raw honey. Since then, I have not looked back and I thoroughly recommend anyone having trouble with acne to try this side-effect free option! The Side-Effects of Conventional Acne Treatments Before researching natural solutions, I tried in vain several different options from both high street beauty brands and the pharmacy. [...]
