Today is a very exciting day, it sees the launch of Holistic Green Beauty a line created by former Green beauty blogger Danny and his partner Scott. Danny has been a friend of mine since we met through blogging, I have been privileged enough to chat to Danny about the range from the moment he started formulating it and have witnessed first hand the knowledge, passion and hard work that have led up to the launch.

I have never been a great advocate of DIY skincare, I tend to think there is a reason why skincare brands exist and generally they do a far better job than we could do ourselves. I certainly would never recommend making anything water based yourself unless you really know what you are doing (one word mould! ick!), but even for the DIY reluctant like me there are a few core recipes that are easy, great value and worth taking a few minutes to do yourself.

With the colder months ahead of us, dry skin can be a problem, but Pai skincare has a great and customisable solution that is perfect for delicate skins. If you dislike heavy body butters, this combination is the perfect solution and is in fact a great trick for supercharging any body lotion you may be using that just quite isn't affording you enough moisture alone in the colder months.

One of the lovely things about blogging has been just how much I have learnt about products, skin and brands. I don't think a week goes by that I don't learn something different. Something I have been focusing on lately has been adding hydration to my routine without overloading my skin, as it has been less dry than normal thanks to the reasonable weather we have been having.

I was checking the blog the other day and I realised that it has been a whole year since I last did a disappointing products post. With the volume of products that come through my door there are bound to be things that just don't cut it at times, rather than posting lot's of individual negative reviews (although I write them when in the mood) I tend to pop things together in a post like this. These days there is a heck of a lot more pressure on bloggers, with more PR involvement and everyone seeking positive coverage, it is easy to sweep disappointments under the carpet for an easy life, however this is still my corner of the internet and people come here for my opinions, so I wouldn't want to be afraid to give them.

Cosy winter evenings in my house wouldn't be complete these days without the log burner on and a candle burning. It is no secret that I am obsessed with eco candles, by that I mean candles that use clean burning soy wax and essential oils for scenting, rather than the use of cheap paraffin wax.

I think of all the Naturisimo limited edition boxes, this one has to be my favourite. With a theme like de-stress and unwind it has some absolutely gorgeous brands and all for a very reasonable price, as usual much below the RRP of buying the products individually.

When it comes to the confusing world of skincare we are swamped by well meaning advice, some of which ranges from the ludicrous to the downright dangerous. What products do we really need? What is the best routine for our skin? These are the questions I have been seeking the answers to from Skincare Specialists that I trust.
