JĀSÖN SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen - Review*




Top quality, affordable products created with over 50 years of knowledge and only the purest organic ingredients... JĀSÖN products contain the finest food-grade, natural, organic and nutritional ingredients to deliver topical benefits to the hair and skin. Their unique formulations are infused with botanicals, plants, roots, herbs, proteins, vitamins and minerals, gathered from the earth. All products are created in the company's own impressive manufacturing plant in Culver City, California, giving them complete control over the quality and integrity of their range.

An all-mineral sunscreen that is chemical and fragrance-free, which provides UVA and UVB protection and creates a natural barrier to protect skin against sunburn. The easy-to-rub in formula won’t leave a white film on the skin like most mineral sunscreens do and is hypoallergenic making it ideal for sensitive skin.

With my holiday coming up in September, I was needing to accumulate some more sunscreen. I ended up coming across this SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen by JĀSÖN on LoveLula.com. The packaging really caught my eye and the fact that it's reef safe and biodegradable is amazing! This sunscreen takes me a few rubs to get it into my skin and to get rid of the white film, but after that, you can't tell that I'm wearing anything on my skin. After having had a shower after using the sunscreen, I could still smell the product on my skin, this is always a good sign that a sunscreen is water resistant. When applied frequently this sunscreen prevents sunburn and provides UVA and UVB protection.

JĀSÖN SPF 20 Facial Sunscreen - Review*



Top quality, affordable products created with over 50 years of knowledge and only the purest organic ingredients... JĀSÖN products contain the finest food-grade, natural, organic and nutritional ingredients to deliver topical benefits to the hair and skin. Their unique formulations are infused with botanicals, plants, roots, herbs, proteins, vitamins and minerals, gathered from the earth.

An ultra sheer, hypoallergenic, oil-free formula absorbs easily to help protect skin from the sun which could result in premature ageing. Enriched with specially selected antioxidants, such as Grape Seed and Green Tea Extract, this lightweight, non-comedogenic formula is ideal for everyday use and should not clog pores. Completely translucent and never chalky, this sunblock is recommended even under makeup because it will not change the shade of foundation.

• Non-Greasy • Water Resistant • Long-Lasting • UVA & UVB Protection • Helps Prevents sunburn • Higher SPF gives more sunburn protection •


I'm going on holiday in September, so a new facial suncream was definitely needed. I came across this SPF 20 Facial Suncream by JĀSÖN on LoveLula.com. I've heard of JĀSÖN before but I've never actually tried any of their products since going cruelty-free and vegan. so firstly, I love that this facial suncream is in a bottle with a pump. This makes the product so much easier to apply to the face as you can control how much cream comes out over a squeezy bottle. With just one application this is now my favourite facial sunscreen! It applies easy, it's quick to rub in and it soaks into my skin in seconds. Surprisingly my face doesn't feel greasy or oily after using this sunscreen and it feels very mattifying to my skin which I've never experienced with a facial sunscreen before! When applied frequently this sunscreen prevents sunburn and provides UVA and UVA protection.

Lavera Repair & Care Rose Shampoo & Conditioner - Review*





The core of Lavera’s philosophy can be found in its name: which literally means ‘the truth’, which is the founding principle of the company and the cosmetics they produce. Lavera is totally committed to bringing you the healthiest and safest, high quality, pure natural and organic products. They are proud to be certified organic by NATRUE and have over 100 products certified vegan by the Vegan Society. All lavera products are free from animal testing. And the products do NOT contain Parabens, SLS’s, synthetic sunscreen actives, artificial dyes or fragrances. Lavera is committed to making sure that you and your family are safe from potentially harmful ingredients by providing you with effective and chemical-free options with wholesome values.

When hair is dry and damaged the outer protective layer of the hair (cuticle) becomes raised, this causes the hair to lose its shine and become dull and tired looking. Lavera Repair & Care Shampoo and Conditioner has been specially developed to care for dry and or damaged hair, the innovative formulation with active organic ingredients gently cleanses hair and provides it with essential nutrients to nourish and hydrate. The organic rose moisturises, smoothes and has a repairing effect on hair structure and the pea protein moisturises and leaves hair soft, supple and easier to comb whether wet or dry.

Rose is one of my favourite scents, so when I came across this Repair & Care Rose duo by Lavera on LoveLula.com I just had to try them both out! Firstly, both bottles look great on their own but I'd personally prefer them to match when they are together. I haven't used any shampoo or conditioner bottles which are designed like this conditioner bottle before. Using this conditioner bottle has made me prefer using a hair care product this way around! You don't need to turn it upside down or worry about getting the last of the product out when it's nearly empty. Both the shampoo and conditioner leave my hair feeling very soft and silky after use. My hair also becomes easier to brush after use and I can visibly see fewer flyaways after I've to blow dried my hair. Overall, I'm super happy with this Lavera duo and I'll be taking them on holiday with me to give my hair a little TLC after it's been in the sun and sea all day!

Hurraw! SPF 15 Sun Protection Lip Balm - Review*


Hurraw! Balm started out of pure intent; a personal obsession to create the perfect balm: all natural, vegan, made from premium raw, organic and fair trade ingredients, complete with a bunch of natural and fun flavour options. They source honest, fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers and are thrilled to share the labours with other balm lovin' individuals. Your purchase also supports legit fair trade, organic farmers and suppliers in the States and around the World.

For those long exposure times, Hurraw's SPF 15 Sun Balm will give your lips the extra protection they need. It glides on silky smooth (and virtually clear) like their regular balms but they've formulated it to be extra thick and creamy for longer staying while out in those shining rays. Juicy Tangerine with hints of Vanilla, the unique scent of Roman Chamomile lends a calming note. Packed full of amazing cold pressed oils to moisturise, protect and heal. This lip balm protects your lips by sitting on top of them and therefore, provides a physical barrier against UVA and UVB rays. It actually deflects the rays away from the skin to prevent any harm being caused 

Now that the sun has actually come out in England, I've been on the hunt for a new SPF lip balm. I came across this lovely looking Hurraw! SPF 15 Sun Protection Lip Balm on LoveLula.com. When I first opened the lip balm I was pleasantly surprised by the scent of it. Being an SPF lip balm I was expecting 'that' smell you always get, but instead I was hit with a lovely scent of tangerine. I find that Hurraw's Sun Protection Lip Balm is perfect for me, as no matter how many times you apply the balm you're not left with any thick white marks. This product is also a super must have for when I go on holiday in a couple of months time!

Giovanni D:tox System Purifying Facial Mask & Scrub - Review*






Giovanni's principles are based on beauty from the elements and beauty from within. Their pioneering formulae include vitamins, herbs, minerals, proteins and nutrients that ensure your hair & skin looks and feels its best. And their simple yet unique bottles add a funky modern twist to the bathroom.

Giovanni D:tox System Purifying Facial Mask 
To keep your skin at its most pure, you need this deep detoxifying mask. Volcanic ash works to extract and absorb pollutants while activated charcoal pulls the deepest impurities to the surface to help detoxify. Antioxidants of acai and goji berry dive deep to fight free radicals. As your mask experience comes to a close, a pleasant cooling sensation envelops your skin.

I've had my eyes on Giovanni's D:tox System Purifying Facial Mask for a while now. And since I was getting low on my current face mask, I decided that is was finally time to try this one from LoveLula.com. The mask has a nice scent to it and is really easy to apply with a foundation brush. The packaging tells you to wait twenty minutes before you remove the mask, but for me, I felt I only needed to wait fifteen minutes before the mask was fully dry. I love washing a face mask off in a shower as it minimises mess and it feels more relaxing to me. The mask came off easily and left my skin feeling really smooth!

Giovanni D:tox System Purifying Facial Scrub
In order to help your skin be pure and detoxified, you need this gentle exfoliating scrub. With volcanic ash to dislodge pollutants and activated charcoal to extract impurities and help detoxify skin without drying. Super-antioxidants acai and goji berry help recharge cells. Leaves your face buffed and smooth.

So after finding the Giovanni face mask on LoveLula.com, I thought it would be a great idea to create a duo with the matching face scrub. I love a good face scrub and this one ticks all the boxes for me! I feel like this face scrub gives my skin a good clean without being too harsh on it. And like the face mask, the face scrub also left my skin feeling really soft.
