Latest in Beauty - Build your own box December

Although I like to shop in stores that make natural and organic their USP, these days you can find lot's of natural products in places that perhaps you wouldn't expect. I first discovered Latest in Beauty a few years ago and I like the concept. It's an online store that creates collections of beauty products so you can discover products from up and coming or well established brands. I don't often shop the pre-made collections as most of the time they are not exclusively "natural" or "green" but I have been a big fan of the "Build your own box" selection for some time and it has introduced me to some fabulous brands.

Green Beauty Predictions for 2017

I am stealing this idea for a post from Fiona at the Beauty Shortlist, she recently wrote her 2017 beauty predictions (you can find that post here) and I loved what she had to say. If you don't know Fiona or the Beauty Shortlist awards, either as a beauty enthusiast or as a brand, then you should. Every year the Beauty Shortlist awards introduces me to at least one new fabulous brand I didn't know before. They are a must for anyone who is looking for niche brands that are a little bit different, although not entirely green, she does champion small green brands alongside the more mainstream which is fantastic.

Party prep beauty - Skincare, body care and makeup

Party season is well underway and I wanted to show some of the star products I have been testing that are perfect for this time of year. A lot of these are new to me products, with a few old favourites thrown in. I have quite limited time to get ready this year as I have Baby Green to keep me busy so I am keeping it simple with speedy products.

New in: Pai Skincare Head to Toe Buriti balm

This new treat from Pai Skincare launched really rather quietly, but I think it is such a versatile product and so beautifully done that I am going to shout about it. This is fast becoming a staple product.

Introducing Terreverdi skincare

I have to say 2016 saw so many new discoveries for me in terms of brands and products, more than I could really keep up with in fact. I mentioned Terreverdi back in September as part of my Organic Beauty week posts and I thought it was a brand that definitely was worth revisiting. Terreverdi was created by Alessandra de Gregorio who was inspired by her childhood in Sicily to reconnect with nature and re-evaluate many of her choices after she had her four children.

Juice Beauty Stem cellular Anti-Wrinkle booster serum

I am pretty sure Juice Beauty are contenders for one of the longest product names with this serum, although there are a few that are even longer! I do sometimes wonder if brands are having some kind of secret competition we don't know about when naming their products. But anyway back to the important stuff, the review itself!

Skincare tips: How to apply facial oils and serums

My love for face oils and serums runs deep, but I had never used one until I fell down the green beauty rabbit hole. I am convinced that if I had to pin point one thing that had made a big difference to my skin, adding a face oil daily would be it! Having said all that, it took me a little time to work out how to best apply face oil to ensure glowing skin without the oil slick, so in today's post I wanted to share my top tips for using a facial oil for all skin types.
