Celebrating 30 years of Weleda Nappy change cream

I am a big fan of Weleda's baby range, in fact it was one of the few ranges I used on my son including the calendula nappy change cream which is celebrating 30 years since it launched. The calendula nappy change cream combines biodynamic calendula, sweet almond, sesame, beeswax and zinc amongst other natural and beneficial ingredients.

500 Blogposts: The good, the bad and the downright ugly...

This is my 500th blog post, I feel I should have balloons or a cake but all I have is my thoughts and the keyboard which isn't quite as exciting. When I first started this blog I had no idea what I was getting myself in to, had I known I would have run a mile, but then it is those things that truly stretch you out of your comfort zone that you learn and grow from.

Le Petit Olivier Anti-ageing serum

A water based serum from French brand Le Petit Olivier is the latest addition to my skincare arsenal and as the brand is new to me one I was keen to explore. Anti-ageing face serum* (£19.90 for 30 mls) comes in a glass bottle with a pipette for easy dispensing, I use just two to three drops and either press it in to damp skin by itself or mixed with a few drops of a facial oil.

Lippy girl Vegan lipstick: Snog me

Lipstick is one of my favourite make up items, a swipe of colour never fails to make me feel better even on the worst of days. Lately I have been testing out a Vegan lipstick by Lippy Girl which is a brand that has recently landed in the UK.

Get ready for summer with Indie Lee coconut citrus body scrub

Coconut and Citrus? You couldn't keep me away from this body scrub with that combination. Indie Lee's products have already featured quite a few times on this blog and I have always found them to be great, the squalane oil in particular has something of a cult following now.

Greenfrog Botanical handwash and bodywash

Another UK brand to look out for today on the blog. I never tire of saying it but we really are spoilt for choice. Greenfrog Botanic have a lovely website full of extremely useful information about their ethics and products, it is impressive and clearly both the products and the site are put together by people who are incredibly passionate.

MonShea Shea Butter review

If you are someone with dry skin or hair then Shea Butter is an ingredient you need to know about. Shea Butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree and has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for hundreds of years. Shea Butter is very versatile as it can be used on skin and hair, it's deeply nourishing but also helps repair skin so it's perfect for very dry skin that needs help healing.

Green and spring relaxing candle set

I recently finished off this little set from British brand Green and Spring and I enjoyed it so much I knew it deserved it's own post. In my opinion we don't hear enough about this brand, the 100% natural range is handmade in the UK and is free from parabens, sulphates, artificial fragrances, PEG's, glycols and petrochemicals. The packaging and plant extracts used are inspired by the British countryside and I adore the the beautiful birds used on every product.

Fresh Therapies Nail care review

If you are new to the brand Fresh Therapies, let me introduce you to some of the best nail care products on the market, natural or otherwise. The brand was created by Nicola Dickinson who spotted a gap in the market for a nail varnish remover that was naturally derived and non-toxic, whilst the skincare market has been booming for some time when it comes to nail care the competition is much less tough, so when I found Fresh therapies over two years ago I never looked back.

Pai Lotus and orange blossom Bioaffinity tonic

As one of the brands that I have been loyal to the longest there are only a couple of Pai products I haven't yet tried, strangely enough despite my love of a good moisturising spritz the toners were among those products. This mistake on my part has now been rectified and as much as I thought this might be the one product from the range that wouldn't wow me, I was wrong.

Another gorgeous release from Nourish on the blog today, always a go to brand for me due to the high level of organic ingredients and formulas packed with things that are great for your skin.

Naturisimo Kiss and Make up discovery box

I really hate to tease you with something that is already out of stock but these literally flew of the Naturisimo site! The postman delivered mine a few hours ago and so I thought I would share with you what is in the box and how to make sure you don't miss out on the next offering if you were disappointed this time.
