The healer: CV Skinlabs restorative skin balm

When it comes to uncomfortable or painful skin conditions I think I have found a bit of a miracle worker all the way from the US, the CV Skinlabs restorative skin balm. CV Skinlabs has only recently come to the UK to natural boutique Cos Natural but the buzz about this brand from US bloggers has had me really curious for awhile.

Reading the labels: Free From marketing.

As awareness of cosmetic ingredients has grown so have the list of companies aiming to remind us of the ingredients they don't include in their formulations on their sites and packaging, personally I have mixed feelings about this and it's something I have wanted to address on the blog for a while.

Lily Lolo Make up: Mascara and BB cream review

Another brand who's products I have been using for years today and that's Lily Lolo. Founded in 2005 Vikki Khan named the brand after her two sisters nicknames, the brand started primarily with mineral make up and have since expanded in to other items such as pressed shadows and blushes and more recently mascara and BB cream.

Skincare for sensitive skin: Weleda White Mallow body lotion

My own skincare routine is full of Weleda products, they are a brand I love and trust and I have also used their children's products on my son for years. When I saw they had released a new line specifically for sensitive skin I was excited to try it out, both on myself and the little man in my life who is now six.

Juice Beauty Green apple peel brightening pads review

When it comes to skin tone I think most people are interested in something that brightens the skin and adds glow, especially at this time of year when the cold weather has taken it's toll.

Rosey hues: Living Nature Bloom lipstick

 I have been on a search for the perfect pink lipstick for a while now and I think I may have just found it. This lipstick from New Zealand brand Living nature is a very pretty rose pink, described by the brand as a vibrant hot pink shade this is in my opinion a good option for someone wanting a brighter shade that is still incredibly wearable.

Heaven scent: Coming up smelling of roses

The post second in my heaven scent series (you can find the first here) focuses on one of my all time favourite ingredients: Rose. Roses have been a part of peoples beauty rituals for centuries, in fact both the Greeks and the Romans used rose petals to scent their baths, as well as being naturally fragrant roses have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and calming properties and rosewater can be helpful in cooling the skin.

Giveaway with Odylique: Win an organic Lip kit

I have a wonderful giveaway for you today from a brand who's squeaky clean ingredient policy and lovely formulas have been impressing me for a while and that brand is Odylique by Essential care. Whilst I have been recently seeing lot's of praise for their skincare and body care I wanted to show a little love for their make up. I have been using quite a few of their products for some time now including their lipsticks, concealer and eye liner, as well as being organic certified by the Soil Association and certified fair trade Odylique are one of the very few brands I have found that are also palm oil free, the overuse of palm oil is environmentally problematic and so I am always pleased when brands eliminate completely as it gives the consumer choices. 

So on to the giveaway, you can win a lovely Nude Lip kit worth £36 which includes a lovely hydrating lip balm, a lip liner and a lipstick. The kit includes everything you need to create a really pretty nude lip perfect for everyday or pairing with a smokey eye. 

Dry skin be gone: Conscious skincare orange and frangipani body butter

New In: Intensae Assam with A Beautiful World

I feel like we all deserve a little pat on the back for surviving January, the bleakest and coldest month of the year. As the snowdrops pop up you can start to feel that change in the air that says spring is on it's way, slowly but on it's way. So it only seems fitting that this stunning hot pink shade of nail polish be released today, it has definitely put an extra spring in my step.
