A light gel textured eyeshadow base that helps keep eyeshadow in place all day long!

I'm not an avid eye shadow user, but when I do use it I'd rather it didn't crease towards the end of my day or evening leaving my look a little worse for wear. That's where Lavera's Eye Shadow Base from LoveLula.com comes in handy. I've never used an eye shadow base before, so when I applied the product to my eyelids they did feel a little sticky afterwards. Not long after, I realised that the product had soaked in nicely. With the Eye Shadow Base on my eyelids, I am also able to create a darker look with any eyeshaow due to the moisture from the gel. The eyeshadow seemed to stay in place longer than usual and is a great way to elongate your look.

Lavera Organic Eye Make-Up Remover - 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.

The soft and gentle Lavera Eye Make-Up Remover carefully removes eye make-up from the delicate and sensitive skin around the eyes and lashes. It has been developed using the best organic and natural ingredients nature has to offer and has been specially formulated with skin caring organic Aloe Vera and organic Sea Buckthorn which is particularly suitable for sensitive skin. The Lavera Organic Eye Make-Up Remover has also been tested by dermatologists and ophthalmologists.

In need of a replacement for my current running out eye make-up remover, I decided to try out this Lavera Organic Eye Make-Up Remover from LoveLula.com. The product itself smells lovely and it comes in a good sized bottle. I found it removes my eye make-up well (even waterproof mascara), meaning it doesn't take me long to remove a full eye of eye make-up. The only downside is that if you use a lot of the product and do accidentally get it directly in your eyes it does sting. Other than that I really like this eye make-up remover from Lavera and I will continue to use it in the future.

Those Bambi Salon One Week Vegan Cluster Lashes - Review


The Bambi salon is where you can enjoy a quiet, home-based, cruelty-free and vegan salon experience either in Gravesend or in Hartley, Kent. Better for you, better for the environment and better for the animals. The team is made up of two vegan sisters, Gina and Danielle who are on a mission to help make us feel amazing using only ethical and moral brands. Bambi even has a gang that you can sign up to as well. You'll get loads of vegan beauty information including an exclusive #GangPerks offer sent to your inbox every month. They also have a private group on Facebook where you can ask absolutely anything and chat with other members.

 


Danielle is the lash extension queen, over at the Hartley home salon, she loves creating the perfect lashes for her clients to wake up to every, single morning. You're welcomed to get cosy in the beauty chair upon the super soft blankets whilst you have your treatment done. With world-leading quality lash extensions and five different curl types as well as different thickness' and colours to choose from, you know Danielle can find the perfect style for you. I've had a fair few treatments done at the lovely home salon in Hartly from false lashes to gel toenails. And I've actually managed to try out most of the false lashes that Danielle has available. On my last appointment, Danielle took some photos of my lovely looking lashes which made me think about writing a review on them and about the great Bambi Salon.

One Week Clusters Lashes £25

The lashes used are from Nouveau Lashes who are a proud cruelty-free company. Pre-made clusters of five hairs each are applied along your lash line to give a fuller lash effect in half an hour. They need to be removed after one week of wear, either in the salon or with a home removal kit. Perfect for special occasions and weekends away. If you've never had the treatment before you'll need a quick patch test twenty-four hours before your treatment.



I've never been very good at applying false lashes, so when I came across the Vegan Bambi Salon over a year ago now, I loved the idea of someone applying them for me instead. The whole lash experience is a great pick me up and I like to get mine done for any special occasions that I have. This time I only wanted my false lashes for that weekend, so I went for the One Week Cluster Lashes. For the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours, you're advised to not get your lashes wet due to the glue still bonding your lashes together. So please keep this in mind when getting your lashes done before any special occasions. For me, my lashes last around four to five days if I go out partying in them, but with extra care, they should last just under a full week. Danielle is great at applying all different types of lashes and I'm always happy with the outcome that she's achieved for me!

PHB Ethical Beauty New Skin Perfector Bio-Gel*



PHB Ethical Beauty is a pioneering family run business with a revolutionary multi-award winning a range of UK handmade ethical beauty products which are all natural, vegan and halal certified. PHB give us ethically made products that are a safer choice for our health and for the environment. They're also raising awareness about ethical issues that arise in the cosmetics industry, such as the use of animal-derived ingredients, plastic microbeads and palm oil in cosmetics. All of PHB's products are free from alcohol, animal ingredients, harmful chemicals & allergens and they are strongly against animal testing.

This skin perfecting Bio-Gel blends the finest quality organic Aloe Vera with pure Rose Oil & Sea Buckthorn in a skin-quenching and healing formula. Rich in essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that help increase elasticity, promote scar healing & improve skin’s appearance and texture.

I'm always on the hunt for new products to try that claim to promote scar healing or help with stretch marks. I've now accepted that scars and stretch marks are normal and that everyone has them, but I do like to keep mine extra hydrated than the rest of my skin so that they stay super soft. I simply love the look of the new range that PBH Ethical Beauty has brought out and the glass packaging is amazing. You can buy the new range from LoveLula.com which is where I came across it. This Skin Perfector Bio-Gel from PHB Ethical Beauty smells lovely and I love using it on my body as it sinks in quickly. The only problem I have is that it seems to leave my facial skin feeling a little heavy so I prefer to use it in the evenings before I go to sleep rather than in the mornings. This product is great at leaving my skin feel super soft, making it the perfect product to keep my scars and stretch marks hydrated!
