Hurraw! Papaya & Pineapple Lip Balm - Review*


Hurraw for Papaya & Pineapple!


Hurraw! balms are made with certified organic, vegan ingredients (yes no beeswax) and are these made using cold pressed oils to keep them full of goodness.

'The juicy duo of cold pressed papaya seed oil and natural pineapple flavour makes for a tropical treat! The primary ingredient in this papaya pineapple balm is cold pressed papaya seed oil, which has loads of moisturising essential fatty acids and is great for the skin. Papaya seed oil also contains the enzyme papain, which is keen to quiet inflammation.'

I never have enough lip balms and I'm always looking for new ones to try out! I ended up coming across this Summery sounding Hurraw! lip balm from MyPure.co.uk and was sent a tube for reviewing purposes. When you smell the product from the tube it smells like sweet pineapple, but when applied to the lips the lip balm smells more like those fruit salad sweets, which is lovely! I love how smooth and non-sticky this Hurraw! lip balm makes my lips and I feel that the balm itself lasts a good time after applying.

Lavera Volume Mascara in Black - Review*



Volumize those lashes! 


For over 25 years, Lavera have manufactured all natural skincare and cosmetics to the highest quality standards. Using herbal ingredients, certified organic whenever possible, Lavera products are all formulated without synthetic preservatives, colours or fragrances, developed to be effective yet gentle for sensitive skin, and safe for you, your family and the environment.

This volume mascara offers natural volume and is an everyday companion, for naturally thickened lashes. Its vegan texture with mineral-based colour pigments and selected organic ingredients, such as organic carnauba wax, leaves lashes looking gorgeous. This mascara is also suitable for contact lens wearers and is both dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested.

I haven't worn mascara since my last review on one, which was probably well over a year ago now! So I thought I'd give a different brand a go, I ended up going for this black volumizing mascara by Lavera. Firstly, I love how the brush both separates and lengthens the lashes without making them look thick or clumpy. I also found the brush itself to be a great size and a it was a pleasure to work with. The mascara isn't water proof and because of this I sadly ended up with black underneath my eyes, I also found that the mascara had flaked a little by the end of the day. Although the other good thing about this mascara is that it smells sweet and not strange like some other products can, but from my point of view I probably won't be using any mascara's again as I much prefer my eye lashes without!
