I've never really been one for nail art or anything like that, but I do like to take care of my nails once in a while. The second product I liked the look of to review from MyPure this month, was this Benecos Nail Polish in Peach Sorbet. With nail colours I've always preferred darker reds, pinks and everything in between as I think that's what suits my nails best. I tend to steer clear of light colours though as I can't cope with applying so many layers to get a good outcome. So I was a little disappointed with this colour as I thought it looked dark enough to skip all the layers. I ended up needing two or more layers of the product, and as you can see from my photos above I may have needed more. This was a shame as I really like the Peach Sorbet colour as I find it really pretty and Spring like. Besides this colour I actually have quite a few shades that I'm in love with and use quite often from Benecos' range so I think it's about finding that perfect shade for you.

'Banish Blemishes with this Lavera SOS Blemish Control Cream. The transparent Blemish Control gel is ideal for targeting, and minimising skin imperfections, such as spots, blemishes, and redness. The natural and organic formula includes zinc, salicylic acid from willow bark extract which work towards clearing up spots, fighting bacteria and help prevent new eruptions. Organic Peppermint is anti-bacterial and clarifying, zinc dries out spots and salicylic acid actively fights spots.'

I've suffered with spots for as long as I can remember, so the first product I choose to review from MyPure this month, was this SOS Anti Blemish Control Spot Treatment from Lavera. The tube itself that the product comes in is a handy size to take away with you as it's small and compact. I also like that the item has a fine nib to help apply the product directly to any blemishes without it going everywhere and wasting any of product. The product itself is a clear liquid and when dried it creates a thin see able barrier over your blemish, because of this I prefer to apply before I go to sleep so no one else can see this! I found that the product helped reduce redness and  that it calmed my blemishes down quicker then without applying the gel. Overall I'm quite happy with this little item and it's now part of my night time routine!

Just 4 Kids Gentle & Effective Natural Deodorants for Young Skin & a Giveaway - Review*

'JUST 4 KIDS by NOOSC Ltd was created by a mum and her 2 boys, concerned by the lack of natural deodorants available on the market. We were unable to find a natural deodorant that was aimed purely for children, that didn't contain any nasty chemicals like aluminium (associated with ALZHEIMERS) parabens (being studied to determine if they play a role in breast cancer) and propylene glycol (a neurotoxin that causes dermatitis, kidney and liver damage) which can be found in everyday deodorants.'

'With lots of research help and advice from experts in laboratories (the kids loved their visits to meet real scientists), we began developing the best natural deodorant formulated JUST 4 KIDS. Our deodorant is a healthier alternative to traditional antiperspirants; we have made our product with passion to give children a healthier start in the deodorant arena formulated for younger sensitive skins. One that children would like to use and parents would want to use on their children.'

I was kindly sent all four scents of the Just4Kids deodorants to review on my blog after contacting the company. All of the deodorants are free from aluminium, alcohol, parabens, nasty chemicals and are made with only the best natural ingredients with a hypoallergenic formula. This means these deodorants are especially great for young children! The range consists of the following four scents, Vanilla Cream, Green Apple, Strawberry and Sea Breeze. I can confirm that all four of the scents smell great and I decided to try out the Sea Breeze and Strawberry, I left out the other two so I could give them away in a giveaway! (see below for details). With these deodorants you can roll the product up for when you're using it and then down again for storage whilst not in use. I really like this design as it makes them quick and easy to use. As you may know natural deodorant don't stop you from sweating but they are meant to prevent you from having smelly body odour. I found that these deodorants did prevent odour for a while but not throughout a whole day of work. I felt that I needed to reapply the deodorant quite a few times to stop myself from smelling. This made me became quite concious that other people could smell me... The only downside of these deodorants is that they didn't help fight my body odour, but I'm wondering if it's because the deodorants are aimed at children and not for people in their early twenties? Other than that I think these are a great 'first deodorant' for younger children to help get them in a routine of using one and the scents are lovely, it's just a shame they didn't linger through out my adult working day.
