New in: KINN Living

It has been extremely interesting to see so many new brands launch that are certified organic lately, I don't think for a second that the organic beauty movement is going to slow down, in fact I think it will go from strength to strength. KINN is one of those brands that are instantly appealing with it's minimalist aesthetic and clean lines, in a way that also reflects the purity of the ingredients inside. Launching just this spring, KINN is a brand that has captured my attention.

Current Skincare favourites: Featuring Nourish, Samaya Ayurveda and A'Kin

Three skincare products that have made it consistently in to my routine lately, I use the word routine lightly because let's be honest it is part of what I do to keep trying new things. Not sure if anyone else feels the same, but the hot weather really makes simplify my skincare choices, when it's hot and sticky all I want is to feel less hot and sticky! I have been using mists liberally, they are heavenly in the hot weather and have a few on rotation, some in the bedroom some downstairs for use during the day. Generally though I have found a simpler routine works better for me when it's warm, so here are three products I have been thoroughly enjoying.

Introducing LA EVA the art of organic beauty

When I first started my green beauty journey, I instantly fell in love with some of the pioneering organic beauty brands, back then though there was still a tendency to see organic as something a bit crunchy. Fast forward to today, you have organic brands making it to the pages of Vogue, organic beauty hitting the high street and making it's way to even the most exclusive celebrity bathrooms. The crunchy image is really no more, in fact when you see brands like LA EVA launching it's hard to think of time when organic wasn't this glamourous.

Five great value natural beauty products to try: Featuring Silvan skincare, Lyonsleaf, Weleda, Alucia Organics and Earth Conscious

One of the reasons people often give for not choosing natural and organic products is that natural products have a higher price point than their conventional counterparts. Whilst generally speaking it is true that natural, wild crafted and organic ingredients all carry a higher price tag than many synthetics, you absolutely don't have to break your budget to enjoy natural beauty and this is a message I am really passionate about. You can have a great natural routine using ethical and cruelty free brands that are affordable without any sacrifice in quality.
