Skin Likes 100% Natural Roll-On Deodorant - Review*

Roll on!

Skin Likes have created a formula that gives you peace of mind which has no sting (even after shaving), kills bacterial odour in sweat instantly, doesn't clog pores or leave white marks on clothes and is completely free from irritating chemicals. Using food-grade, plant-based ingredients and nothing else, this product as with everything that they produce have not and never will be tested on animals. Apply this gentle, natural underarm deodorant after showering. In extreme heat or when exercising, reapply for best results. The wonderful natural ingredients in this product are Scottish spring water, bicarbonate of soda, xanthan gum and a special blend of bacteria-busting therapeutic essential oils and nothing else.

After having my eye on this roll-on deodorant for a while, I was kindly sent some to review! Since going vegan, I've found it quite hard to get on with roll-on deodorants. Sadly I haven't been able to get on with this deodorant either, which is quite disappointing as I really love the smell. My only problem with this deodorant is that it leaves my armpits feeling really wet, even after leaving the product to dry. I did find the roll-on ball itself very simple and easy to use, which is a surprise as some can be loaded with too much product or not roll properly. Sadly I won't be using this deodorant again which is a shame, as I really like the smell. I do recommend that you try this deodorant out though as it might be perfect for you!

Acorelle Eau de Toilette in Intense Cherry - Review*

Smell intense as a cherry!

Acorelle is a French range of certified organic fragrance, skin care, body care and baby care. All of the Acorelle Eau de Toilette range are 88% natural and are formulated by perfumers in Grasse, the birthplace of perfume. All of their scents are guaranteed to be free of phthalates, nitromusks and colouring. The Eau de Toilette is described as a tender, gourmet perfume thanks to the red berry notes blended with precious gardenia and orchid fragrances, underpinned by warm, woody base notes.

The second product I decided I would like to review from this month, was this lovely looking Eau de Toilette (dilute form of perfume) by Acorelle in their Intense Cherry scent. I've said this before, but since going cruelty free and vegan with my cosmetics I've been eager to try and find to a good smelling scent. I've tried a few testers of various brands and scents, but I haven't found anything that's made me want to buy the bigger version. But for once I actually really, really like the scent of this Eau de Toilette! When I first sprayed myself I was hit with a lovely scent of subtle cherry. I find that I only need one spritz of this Eau de Toilette to last me a good few hours. However If you like a more intense scent then this product is also great for building up throughout the day. I would say this product is great to wear during the day and during the night as it's a very versatile scent and can be worn either lightly or heavily.

Yes To Blueberries Fine Lines & Wrinkles Daily Repairing Moisturiser - Review*

Say Yes To Blueberries!

Yes To Blueberries is Yes To's speciality range for age-damaged or mature skin. The range is said to improve firmness and diminish the appearance of fine lines with blueberries, cotton thistle & paracress flower.

Yes to Blueberries Daily Repairing Moisturiser is a powerful and non-greasy daily moisturiser. The main ingredients are blueberries, these are rich in antioxidants such as vitamin c and anthocyanins which help fight the formation that can damage the skin. Organic cotton Thistle which hydrates age-damaged skin and helps boost natural collagen production and skin rejuvenation. Aloe, which helps provide hydration, soothing, and healing of age-damaged skin. And lastly olive fruit oil which is high in oleic acid and skin identical squalene which help regenerate skin cells, repair the skin's barrier function and attract moisture to age-damaged skin.

The first product I decided I would like to review from this month, was this Yes To Blueberries Daily Repairing Moisturiser. If you read my blog regularly you will know that I can be quite fussy when it comes to the scent of a product! So the first thing I will say about this facial moisturiser is that I love the smell of it, which is quite rare for me. It doesn't smell of blueberries so don't be off by the name. So rather than smelling of blueberries I would describe the scent as being quite flowery but very subtle, it's definitely not an overpowering smell. The cream itself is thin but quite creamy so you only need a tiny amount to cover one area at a time. I found that If I applied too much of the product my skin felt quite heavy, although it did seem to soak in well. The only thing I can't state yet is that the product has reduced my fine lines, as this can take time and constant use of the product. I will say that my face has begun to look a lot more fresh since using this facial cream though!
