Green People organic Rejuvenating Eye cream is made without parabens, lanolin, alcohol (ethyl alcohol, ethanol), artificial perfumes, methylisothiazolinone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, petrochemicals, phthalates and colourants to bring you the purest organic eye cream that nature can offer.  A soothing anti-ageing eye cream to reduce wrinkles and nourish delicate skin. The Plant Squalane, Glycerin and Perilla add nourishment for maximum hydration. Whilst the Tara Bush and Seaweed extracts lock in moisture for sustained long-term hydration. Ideal for use over-night to rejuvenate delicate skin.

I was on the hunt for a new eye cream as my current one was running out, I ended up coming across this really nice Rejuvenating Eye Cream by Green People from LoveLula.com. Firstly, I'm in love with the rounded nib that the tube provides! It's a great help, as you can easily apply the product directly to the skin without wasting any. I find that the cream itself soaks in nicely without leaving any greasy residue, which is what you want around your eyes really! My skin is then left feeling very smooth and soft throughout the day.

Organyc 100% Organic Cotton Buds - Review *




Organyc only uses 100% organic cotton. Conventional cotton buds are usually made of synthetic materials such as viscose, rayon, polypropylene and superabsorbent polymers. These materials are predominately plastic and ultimately made from our diminishing crude oil resources that cannot biodegrade. Using our products which are biodegradable can make such a difference.

Made from 100% certified organic cotton, making them ideal for use as part of a gentle but effective skincare routine.

I've actually been using these Organyc Cotton Buds for a few years now and since seeing them on LoveLula.com I've been wanting to write a little review about them. These work like any other cotton bud but are extra special as they're both biodegradable and compostable. The packaging that they come in is also fully recyclable. The cotton buds are very simple to use and are also really soft and gentle. So say goodbye to non-biodegradable and non-compostable plastic cotton buds and swap over to these Organyc cotton that we can use without feeling guilty!

Norvell Venetian Sunless Colour Extender & Venetian Sunless Mist - Review*




'Sun, Sea & Tan'

The Venetian range by Norvell Tanning creates a deep, dark Mediterranean tan. With a unique blend of violet and brown-toned bronzers, you are guaranteed a flawless colour with no orange hues! The range consists of four products designed to give you your desired sunless colour. All Norvell Tanning products are cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, paraben and gluten-free.

Venetian Sunless Colour Extender
A rich moisturiser mixed with an effective amount of DHA, this buildable formula gradually develops intensity over multiple applications. Perfectly prolonging your Venetian tan.

Venetian Sunless Mist Aerosol Spray
If you prefer a tanning mist, this micro-fine sunless spray will give you the Paradise-ready deep, tan of your dreams in an instant. The violet and brown tone bronzers mean there's no need to worry about those pesky orange hues! 

I was kindly sent these two Venetian Sunless products from Norvell to help me get my body looking tanned before the bare arm and leg season starts. I really like the packaging of the products and both formulas actually smell quite nice, unlike most fake tanning products. I've actually never used fake tan in spray form before, I've only ever used it as a cream or lotion. I found out that spray form isn't really my sort of thing as I feel I need a professional spraying me to get an even looking tan. I do really like Norvell's Venetian Sunless Colour Extender though, I find fake tan lotions and creams a lot easier to use than sprays as they spread a lot better. The Colour Extender rubs in well and leaves my skin looking instantly tanned and golden. I can't wait to use this before I go on holiday later on this year!

I never really trust these adverts but this time I did and I'm so glad that I did. I got in contact with Eviternity Skincare to find out some more information about the mask. They were super friendly and even agreed to send me a tube of their Activated Charcoal Deep Pore Cleanser Facial Peel-Off Mask in return for a blog review. I quickly received the mask which I tried right away. This mask is exactly what I've been looking and hoping for. It leaves my skin feeling super soft after use and I've actually witnessed blackheads being removed! Overall, I'm so happy with the results of this face mask that I actually bought a second tube.

The Mooncup Menstrual Cup, Four Years On - Review




Four years ago I nervously purchased my first ever Mooncup*. If you would like to read my first-time experience post just click here. I'll start by telling you some basic information about the cup... The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup that will last you years and years. It's made of soft medical grade silicone and sits a lot lower than a usual tampon. While a tampon absorbs your period (and everything else), the Mooncup just collects it and nothing else. The Mooncup is also said to collect three times as much than a tampon does! And because the Mooncup is reusable, you only need one of them, so whilst you're saving money, you're also saving the environment. If you'd like to find out anything else including what size to buy or how to clean you Mooncup then please visit my previous Mooncup post.

After four years of using my Mooncup, I'm still loving it over tampons and pads! When I first tried it I was quite worried about using it in public, but now I'm quite happy and very comfortable to go out with it! With my experience, I've found the cup very easy to use once I got used to it a few times and now I don't find it as scary as I used to. Since using my Mooncup I've realised just how much waste I'm personally preventing compared to using tampons and pads. I honestly really recommend the Mooncup. And even if you're a bit scared to try it just go for it, you won't look back I promise!
