Natural Beauty Box - Queen of the Nile edition

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you will know I have long been a fan of natural beauty boxes. They are a fun way to discover new products and expand your beauty horizons. When it comes to beauty boxes with a natural focus, there are a small handful on the market that fit the bill and today I am bringing you a review of the July Natural Beauty box which had a theme of Queen of the Nile, which was perfect for summer.

New in: W3LL People Nudist multi-use duo

I have bought a few make up items lately that I wanted to share with you. I find myself reaching more and more for items that are as easy as possible, I got out of the habit of wearing make up after having baby number two but it's something I am trying to change and get back in to a more normal routine.

Beauty Basics: Trevarno Rose and Jojoba soap

Bar soaps were once thought of as a little old fashioned, but with more people paying attention to packaging waste and looking for gentle options on the skin soap is very much making a comeback.

Ingredients focus: Cucumber in natural beauty

I distinctly remember my first proper skincare routine and skincare purchases. I was around the age of fourteen and my mum took me to the Body Shop and bought me a cucumber cleanser and toner. I remember the large green plastic bottles and the fact that the sales assistant did a little mini demonstration telling me how use them, including telling me to wipe off the cleanser with a cotton pad. I laugh now at the cotton pad advice but my Mum was never a beauty enthusiast the way I am, she slept in her make up and wasn't fussy about products, so no one taught me how to cleanse properly. In fact that is something I didn't really start doing consistently until I started blogging.

Interview with Lorraine Dallmeier of Formula Botanica

The natural and organic beauty industry is thriving, with natural brands now sold in major retailers and being featured in glossy magazines such as Vogue. What started out as a niche movement has developed real traction over the last few years, with consumers taking a real interest in botanical ingredients. The rapid growth of the industry means that it is more important than ever to seek out trusted voices for information.

New in: Hynt Beauty Duet perfecting Concealer review

When it comes to natural and organic make up products I feel that overall there is still a lot of catching up to do with skincare. Make up is much harder to formulate without silicones, mineral oils and other synthetics, that's not to say there aren't good products, but we are still a long way behind the industry in general. I have been a fan of mineral powder formulas for years, they work well for me, but I do get excited when I find a cream formula that is well made and stands up to some of it's conventional counterparts.

Tried and tested: Beauty Bust Oil by Laboratoire du Haut-Segala

I usually don't buy in to body treatments that are targeting a specific area, instead choosing multi-purpose nourishing products that can be used wherever needed, but there are some exceptions. After two babies and many months of breastfeeding, I have noticed that my bust and chest area was looking a little more dry than usual and with some fine lines starting to form. Having never tried a product specifically formulated for the bust area, I thought it was certainly worth investigating.

Family Fun: The Just So Festival

A weekend packed full of fun, mystery and a touch of magic. That is the Just So Festival, a family friendly weekend held at Rode Hall in Cheshire. The festival is ran by Wild Rumpus, a not-for-profit community interest programme dedicated to supporting the arts. This is our second year attending the festival and we loved every minute of it.

Tried and tested - Weleda natural spray and roll on deodorants

One of the products I get asked about more than any other is deodorant. For many people finding a natural deodorant that works well for them is a struggle. Something I always disliked about most deodorants found on supermarket shelves was the scents, they tend to be largely synthetic and not all that pleasant, so personally I find natural deodorants much more pleasant to use.
