Benecos Natural Nail Polish Remover - Review*




For a long time, natural cosmetics had a bland, generic look, limited product choices and, generally, high prices. However, this is no longer the case because at Benecos we offer bright, modern, cruelty-free products all at affordable prices. Our products are natural and organic and our makeup range is filled with a variety of colours, so say goodbye to dull and boring and hello to the vibrant and dynamic world of Benecos colour cosmetics!

The natural nail polish remover is acetone-free, vegan and BDIH certified. It, therefore, removes nail polish more gently than a conventional nail polish remover.

I haven't used many vegan nail colour removers, so when I needed to replace my usual one due to it running out I came across this Benecos Natural Nail Polish Remover on LoveLula.com. Firstly, nail colour remover is pretty straightforward, this one works nicely to remove nail colour but it doesn't smell very natural to me at all. It does what it says on the tin really well but sadly the scent just isn't for me!

Benecos Natural Mascara Volume Vegan Magic Black - Review*





For a long time, natural cosmetics had a bland, generic look, limited product choices and, generally, high prices.

Our products are natural and organic and our makeup range is filled with a variety of colours, so say goodbye to dull and boring and hello to the vibrant and dynamic world of Benecos colour cosmetics!

Benecos Natural Mascara Vegan Volume Magic Black enhances your lashes with the large bristle brush and clump-free magic black natural formula which boosts definition, providing lift, separation and clump-free lashes. Perfect for use any time of the day! Give your lashes some added length, volume and TLC with this Vegan Volume Mascara.

I came across this Benecos Natural Volume Mascara in Magic Black on LoveLula.com. As described, this mascara gives you very natural looking lashes. This mascara is great for a day at work or anywhere you don't fancy your lashes looking too dramatic. The mascara's wand is really easy to use,  it also separates the lashes nicely which is great. When it comes to removing the mascara it dissolves really easily with my makeup remover and taking it off is no effort at all.

Yaoh is based in Bristol, UK, and is one of the UK's original hemp companies, with a range of hemp body care and food products that are 100% vegan and free from animal testing. Yaoh has in store a brand-new range of body care products to supplement their existing range of much-loved body care collection, including a new range of body butter's as well as a number of new flavours for their lip balms, shampoo, shower gel and moisturisers. They've also enhanced their packaging with the consumer in mind.

Yaoh Hemp Seed Oil Tropical Fruits Moisturiser combines the moisturising and rejuvenating qualities of organic hemp seed oil with fruit essences to create an exotic moisturiser that is vegan, free from sodium lauryl sulphate, parabens, harmful substances and unnecessary chemical additives

Yaoh Hemp Seed Oil Coconut & Lime Shampoo combines the moisturising and rejuvenating qualities of organic hemp seed oil with extracts of rosemary, lavender and chamomile along with coconut and lime fragrance to create an invigorating and refreshing shampoo that is vegan, free from sodium lauryl sulphate, parabens, harmful substances and unnecessary chemical additives.

Yaoh Hemp Seed Spearmint Lip Balm is a luxurious vegan balm made with candelilla wax, rich in organic hemp seed oil, & great for protecting and repairing damaged lips. Available in 9 great dynamic flavours. Free from parabens, harmful substances and unnecessary chemical additives.

I first came across vegan brand Yaoh when I went vegan a few years ago. So I was super excited when Pete contacted me about reviewing a few of their new products that had come out earlier this year. I've only ever tried Yaoh's Mango Lip Balm before so I was really looking forward to trying out a few more of their products. I opted to try out three of the Body Butters in Orginal, Coconut & Lime and Tropical Fruits. I also went for the Tropical Fruits Moisturiser, the SPF 25 Sunblock, the shampoo in Coconut & Lime and both their Spearmint and Strawberries & Cream Lip Balm. The Body Butters are thick and creamy so are great for when you're needing a good moisturise. Whereas the Tropical Fruits Moisturiser is a light all over moisturiser which is great for the hotter months. A must have when going away in the sun is the SPF 25 Sunblock, as it's a great product to use when you're trying to get a tan. I find the Coconut & Lime Shampoo larvers up well and has a very fruity and fresh smelling scent which is great for any gender. And lastly, both lip balms smell lovely and are super moisturising to the lips making them perfect for the colder months. Overall I'm really glad that I got a chance to try out more from Yaoh's range and I'm happy that I have discovered a few new favourite products!

Emani Prismatic Duo-Tone Bewitched Lip Colour - Review*




Emani Vegan Cosmetics is uniquely formulated with the most discriminating skin types in mind. Exclusively designed and specifically formulated to benefit sensitive, acne-prone, and ageing skin, each of our products enhance the appearance and well-being of problematic skin. Emani uses only all-natural ingredients to create natural beauty. Emani Vegan Cosmetics combine natural minerals with certified-organic botanicals, oils, and waxes to create quality makeup that enhances your dermatologic health.

One lipstick that can be worn four ways. Each colour can be worn alone, or both shades together. Emani Prismatic lipsticks are infused with two intense symmetrical colours. Create, sculpt and highlight your lips. Artisan-made in California with the "good" stuff: natural oils, waxes and pure, long-lasting pigments for the most glamorous comfort wear. Toxin-free, cruelty-free and gluten-free.

I've never been one for lipsticks and have always stuck to a clear lip balm due to not finding the correct shade for me. I ended up coming across Emani, which is a brand that I hadn't heard of before now. LoveLula.com have a good variety of Emani lipsticks and I ended up going for their Prismatic Duo-Tone Lip Colour in shade Bewitched. I've been searching for this sort of shade for a few months now and I'm glad to say this is the perfect shade for me. The lipstick is easy to apply and I love that you can wear the colours separately or blend them together for a softer shade. I was a little worried that the lipstick would stain my lips like some darker shades do, but I find it easy to remove with a little make-up remover. It stays on well throughout the day and needs minimal replication.
