Celebrating 20 years with Green People

This is a special year for Green People because they are celebrating their twenty year anniversary. Green people is one of the first natural brands I explored and one that I always use and enjoy. The brand has a large variety of skincare, body care and make up products to choose from and in my opinion offer great value for money. The brand was founded by Charlotte when her young daughter developed multiple allergies and sensitive skin. The brand started with a strong ethical stance which has continued, in terms of ingredients used, the manufacturing process and of course they have never tested on animals.

Boxwalla - The Wandering Woman's English spring

The theme for April's Boxwalla was the Wandering Woman's English spring, so the products are all about hydration, which is also perfect given the warm weather that has hit the UK this week. I have been nothing but impressed with Boxwalla, as the boxes are bi-monthly you don't feel overwhelmed with products and the focus is on quality rather than quantity which fits with my wish to try and cut down the amount of products I use and try, not an easy task as a blogger. This a US based subscription, but it ships internationally, I am always impressed with the speed of the shipping and the fact that you can track the location of your box.

Skin Organics Clean beauty box is a new beauty box on the scene that launched this month. Beauty subscriptions are a nice way of trying out new products, up until now there have been limited options if you use natural and organic products but recently there has been a real surge in the market.

Natural and Organic certifications to trust: NATRUE

All of this week I have been talking about Organic beauty and what certification means for brands and consumers. At a time when the natural beauty market is expanding more than ever, looking for certifications can help consumers buy with confidence knowing that brands have voluntary signed up to provide a certain quality and standard. I have talked a lot about the Soil Association stamp, especially as they organise Organic Beauty and Wellbeing week, but today I am turning my attention to the NATRUE seal and what it means.

Organic Beauty and Wellbeing week 2017: Look for the Logo

This week was Organic Beauty and Wellbeing week, an event organised by the Soil Association, one of the leading certifying bodies for organic cosmetics, food and textiles. Organic beauty and wellbeing week is all about raising the profile of organic, there is a lot of misconceptions about organic beauty and unlike food there is no legal standard that cosmetic companies have to abide by to call their products organic, meaning that there is a lot of deceptive marketing going on. Brands with little organic content are thrown in the same category as brands who have a high organic content and abide by strict rules.

New in: Walden natural perfumes

How beautiful is this latest launch, I am actually smitten with the sophisticated packaging of the Walden perfumes. Solid glass bottles and wooden topped lids make this a nice choice for a conscious consumer that doesn't want to compromise on looks or performance of their products.

Spring and summer natural make up: Featuring Green People, Ere Perez, W3LL People, PHB and Inika

I am sure I can't be the only one who is getting very excited about some warmer weather being on the way, it has felt grey and cold in the UK for too long. In anticipation of some warmer weather and because I am making an effort to get back to wearing make up regularly again I have been testing some new products that are perfect for spring and summer. There are quite a few new to me brands and some old favourites in today's post, so lets get started.
