Five lessons blogging taught me about skincare

I have been writing this blog consistently for well over five years now, in that time I have tried hundreds if not thousands of products and whilst I would never consider myself an expert I have definitely learnt some lessons about skincare in that time. I am expecting next year to be a year where I learn a lot more, but I thought it would be interesting to reflect on some of the key things I have learnt so far.

Holland and Barrett becomes the first retailer to ban microplastics

I have been watching the evolution of natural beauty on the high street for some time and it has become more obvious to me that stores are either wholeheartedly embracing the changes in the consumer tide or lagging behind.

Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton range review

Now that I have been writing about beauty consistently for over five years, it is always fun to go back and revisit brands I have spoken about previously. In this case the brand Beauty Kitchen which I reviewed shortly after it first launched. Beauty Kitchen have gone from strength to strength in the last few years, securing a presence on the British high-street with their partnership with Holland and Barrett.

Wonderoos cloth nappy review: Real Easy and V3 Pocket nappy

We have been testing a few nappies from Wonderoos for last six months now, so it's definitely time I weighed in with my thoughts. We absolutely love testing new cloth nappy options and use reusable nappies full time, day and night. Having a longer testing period means I can weigh in on longevity and how well the nappies last, something important when making an investment in reusables.

Neek skin organics vegan lipstick review

Neek is a vegan and natural range based in Australia that was founded by Angelique, her nickname as a child was Neek, because for a toddler Angelique is a bit of a mouthful. Angelique also had an allergy to parabens, so she started exploring making her own products and so Neek was born. The range is a relatively small one, but it has some skincare and a range of natural and vegan lipsticks.
