Love Lula November Box

Love Lula November Box Review

It's the first of December, I've eaten my first advent calendar chocolate today, now I'm ready to roll with everything Christmas!! And right in cue I have also come down with my first cold bug of the season - so all these goodies I received in my November Love Lula box have come in handy to make myself feel pampered whilst I'm under the weather. Suti Cleanse Balm (50ml) This magical delightful pot of utter yum is IN-CREDIBLE! I had never heard of this brand before I tried this and wow it's so delicious. The blend they have come up [...]
Madara Moonflower Set

Madara Tinting Fluid Review

As someone who used to be inseparable with her MAC Studio Fix, I still find it amazing I can now happily use a sheer tinting fluid rather than a heavy-duty liquid foundation. This Madara tinting fluid has been a favourite and an everyday make-up staple of mine for two years! Choosing Which Shade Moon Flower Rose Beige Vs Sun Flower Golden Beige Initially I began using the Sun Flower Golden Beige shade, as I thought my pale complexion needed a boost and quite frankly, I was scared to look like the living dead should I actually wear a foundation colour [...]
All-Natural Lavender Magnesium Spray

Lavender Magnesium Deodorant Spray

So in my last post about deodorant, I mentioned a coconut-oil and orange recipe I tried that didn't quite give me the results I was hoping for. After it broke me out in an uncomfortable and embarrassing rash, it now has a new life as quite a nice exfoliating body oil! Though I limit to using it only on areas I don't shave at all, as it doesn't seem to be very friendly on broken skin. In vain, I decided to try a magnesium spray inspired by Wellness Mama which actually seems to be very effective! I have tested this [...]
Opened Love Lula beauty box

Love Lula October Box Review

 It's Bonfire Night Eve, which means I have been testing out the products from my first ever Love Lula beauty box (also my first ever subscription box of any description!) for almost a month. I'm glad to say I've quite liked all the items that came in the package, which seemed to have a cleansing theme to it. The contents: Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips (3ml) Bodhi & Birch Mint The Bath and Shower Therapy (50ml) Yes To Carrots Gentle Cleansing Wipes (pack of 10 wipes) Inika Organic Eye Liner, shade Black Caviar John Masters Organics Rose and [...]
DIY Natural Orange Deodorant and Giraffe Spatula!

A DIY Natural Deodorant That Works?

What worries me the most about antiperspirant is it's regular association with breast cancer. Just reading the ingredients list on the back of the bottle looks scary, with a long list of oestrogen (estrogenic) compounds including parabens and aluminium. Reading a lot on the subject however, there appear to be contradicting conclusions from various scientific reports and I have yet to find an article which suggests for definite that there is a confirmed link between long-term use of antiperspirants and developing breast cancer. In any case, the ingredients they use in these products are enough for me to not want [...]
Natural toxic-free rose spray

DIY Rose Toner & Make-up Setting Spray

I'm very excited to share a post about my favourite homemade product which I use excessively everyday. It's an easy, all-natural, chemical-free way to incorporate the goodness of roses into your skincare routine. As someone that likes quick ways to get ready in the morning and at night (I'm always in a rush in the morning and desperate to get to bed at night!) I like a skincare routine with as few steps as possible and products that don't require much fuss. I decided to create this multi-purpose spray which is perfect for using as a prepping facial toner and primer before [...]
