JĀSÖN SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen - Review*




Top quality, affordable products created with over 50 years of knowledge and only the purest organic ingredients... JĀSÖN products contain the finest food-grade, natural, organic and nutritional ingredients to deliver topical benefits to the hair and skin. Their unique formulations are infused with botanicals, plants, roots, herbs, proteins, vitamins and minerals, gathered from the earth. All products are created in the company's own impressive manufacturing plant in Culver City, California, giving them complete control over the quality and integrity of their range.

An all-mineral sunscreen that is chemical and fragrance-free, which provides UVA and UVB protection and creates a natural barrier to protect skin against sunburn. The easy-to-rub in formula won’t leave a white film on the skin like most mineral sunscreens do and is hypoallergenic making it ideal for sensitive skin.

With my holiday coming up in September, I was needing to accumulate some more sunscreen. I ended up coming across this SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen by JĀSÖN on LoveLula.com. The packaging really caught my eye and the fact that it's reef safe and biodegradable is amazing! This sunscreen takes me a few rubs to get it into my skin and to get rid of the white film, but after that, you can't tell that I'm wearing anything on my skin. After having had a shower after using the sunscreen, I could still smell the product on my skin, this is always a good sign that a sunscreen is water resistant. When applied frequently this sunscreen prevents sunburn and provides UVA and UVB protection.

JĀSÖN SPF 20 Facial Sunscreen - Review*



Top quality, affordable products created with over 50 years of knowledge and only the purest organic ingredients... JĀSÖN products contain the finest food-grade, natural, organic and nutritional ingredients to deliver topical benefits to the hair and skin. Their unique formulations are infused with botanicals, plants, roots, herbs, proteins, vitamins and minerals, gathered from the earth. All products are created in the company's own impressive manufacturing plant in Culver City, California, giving them complete control over the quality and integrity of their range.

An ultra sheer, hypoallergenic, oil-free formula absorbs easily to help protect skin from the sun which could result in premature ageing. Enriched with specially selected antioxidants, such as Grape Seed and Green Tea Extract, this lightweight, non-comedogenic formula is ideal for everyday use and should not clog pores. Completely translucent and never chalky, this sunblock is recommended even under makeup because it will not change the shade of foundation.

• Non-Greasy • Water Resistant • Long-Lasting • UVA & UVB Protection • Helps Prevents sunburn • Higher SPF gives more sunburn protection •


I'm going on holiday in September, so a new facial suncream was definitely needed. I came across this SPF 20 Facial Suncream by JĀSÖN on LoveLula.com. I've heard of JĀSÖN before but I've never actually tried any of their products since going cruelty-free and vegan. so firstly, I love that this facial suncream is in a bottle with a pump. This makes the product so much easier to apply to the face as you can control how much cream comes out over a squeezy bottle. With just one application this is now my favourite facial sunscreen! It applies easy, it's quick to rub in and it soaks into my skin in seconds. Surprisingly my face doesn't feel greasy or oily after using this sunscreen and it feels very mattifying to my skin which I've never experienced with a facial sunscreen before! When applied frequently this sunscreen prevents sunburn and provides UVA and UVA protection.

Lavera Repair & Care Rose Shampoo & Conditioner - 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.

When hair is dry and damaged the outer protective layer of the hair (cuticle) becomes raised, this causes the hair to lose its shine and become dull and tired looking. Lavera Repair & Care Shampoo and Conditioner has been specially developed to care for dry and or damaged hair, the innovative formulation with active organic ingredients gently cleanses hair and provides it with essential nutrients to nourish and hydrate. The organic rose moisturises, smoothes and has a repairing effect on hair structure and the pea protein moisturises and leaves hair soft, supple and easier to comb whether wet or dry.

Rose is one of my favourite scents, so when I came across this Repair & Care Rose duo by Lavera on LoveLula.com I just had to try them both out! Firstly, both bottles look great on their own but I'd personally prefer them to match when they are together. I haven't used any shampoo or conditioner bottles which are designed like this conditioner bottle before. Using this conditioner bottle has made me prefer using a hair care product this way around! You don't need to turn it upside down or worry about getting the last of the product out when it's nearly empty. Both the shampoo and conditioner leave my hair feeling very soft and silky after use. My hair also becomes easier to brush after use and I can visibly see fewer flyaways after I've to blow dried my hair. Overall, I'm super happy with this Lavera duo and I'll be taking them on holiday with me to give my hair a little TLC after it's been in the sun and sea all day!

Hurraw! SPF 15 Sun Protection Lip Balm - Review*


Hurraw! Balm started out of pure intent; a personal obsession to create the perfect balm: all natural, vegan, made from premium raw, organic and fair trade ingredients, complete with a bunch of natural and fun flavour options. They source honest, fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers and are thrilled to share the labours with other balm lovin' individuals. Your purchase also supports legit fair trade, organic farmers and suppliers in the States and around the World.

For those long exposure times, Hurraw's SPF 15 Sun Balm will give your lips the extra protection they need. It glides on silky smooth (and virtually clear) like their regular balms but they've formulated it to be extra thick and creamy for longer staying while out in those shining rays. Juicy Tangerine with hints of Vanilla, the unique scent of Roman Chamomile lends a calming note. Packed full of amazing cold pressed oils to moisturise, protect and heal. This lip balm protects your lips by sitting on top of them and therefore, provides a physical barrier against UVA and UVB rays. It actually deflects the rays away from the skin to prevent any harm being caused 

Now that the sun has actually come out in England, I've been on the hunt for a new SPF lip balm. I came across this lovely looking Hurraw! SPF 15 Sun Protection Lip Balm on LoveLula.com. When I first opened the lip balm I was pleasantly surprised by the scent of it. Being an SPF lip balm I was expecting 'that' smell you always get, but instead I was hit with a lovely scent of tangerine. I find that Hurraw's Sun Protection Lip Balm is perfect for me, as no matter how many times you apply the balm you're not left with any thick white marks. This product is also a super must have for when I go on holiday in a couple of months time!

Giovanni D:tox System Purifying Facial Mask & Scrub - Review*






Giovanni's principles are based on beauty from the elements and beauty from within. Their pioneering formulae include vitamins, herbs, minerals, proteins and nutrients that ensure your hair & skin looks and feels its best. And their simple yet unique bottles add a funky modern twist to the bathroom.

Giovanni D:tox System Purifying Facial Mask 
To keep your skin at its most pure, you need this deep detoxifying mask. Volcanic ash works to extract and absorb pollutants while activated charcoal pulls the deepest impurities to the surface to help detoxify. Antioxidants of acai and goji berry dive deep to fight free radicals. As your mask experience comes to a close, a pleasant cooling sensation envelops your skin.

I've had my eyes on Giovanni's D:tox System Purifying Facial Mask for a while now. And since I was getting low on my current face mask, I decided that is was finally time to try this one from LoveLula.com. The mask has a nice scent to it and is really easy to apply with a foundation brush. The packaging tells you to wait twenty minutes before you remove the mask, but for me, I felt I only needed to wait fifteen minutes before the mask was fully dry. I love washing a face mask off in a shower as it minimises mess and it feels more relaxing to me. The mask came off easily and left my skin feeling really smooth!

Giovanni D:tox System Purifying Facial Scrub
In order to help your skin be pure and detoxified, you need this gentle exfoliating scrub. With volcanic ash to dislodge pollutants and activated charcoal to extract impurities and help detoxify skin without drying. Super-antioxidants acai and goji berry help recharge cells. Leaves your face buffed and smooth.

So after finding the Giovanni face mask on LoveLula.com, I thought it would be a great idea to create a duo with the matching face scrub. I love a good face scrub and this one ticks all the boxes for me! I feel like this face scrub gives my skin a good clean without being too harsh on it. And like the face mask, the face scrub also left my skin feeling really soft.

Firstly, the packaging as always is simply perfect and very classy. This is probably the most expensive mascara I've ever tried out, but this definitely reflects on the quality of the mascara and the ethics of the brand. For me, the mascara brush glides through my eyelashes nicely, separating and coating them evenly in mascara. I really love how natural my eyelashes look with this mascara, which makes it a great day to day product. The only downside for me is that at the end of the day, I did notice a little flaking and smudging from the mascara.

Thanks to LoveLula.com and PHB Ethical Beauty, I've finally found the perfect eyebrow power that matches my eyebrows!

Raven is a lot darker than Brunette which is why it's perfect for my fairly dark haired eyebrows. The powder itself is easy to apply and blends well with PHB's Brow Define Brush, it's also easy to remove when need be.

Lavera Basis Sensitiv Toothpaste Sensitive - Review*






Safe, chemical-free products without the high price tag of other natural brands, the Lavera range has grown over the last 25 years to include Mineral Makeup, Skincare, Anti-Ageing Skincare, Haircare, Bodycare, Suncare and Babycare. Lavera products offer a safe, healthy solution for the whole family and those with sensitive skin and allergies. The formulations are continually updated with innovative active ingredients based on the latest scientific research. Multi award-winning, Lavera is recognised and acclaimed worldwide for its ethical stance and product efficacy.

Lavera Basis Sensitiv Sensitive Toothpaste offers protection from tooth decay, naturally white teeth and mint-fresh breath in one product. The special lavera recipe with sea salt cleans the teeth intensively yet carefully. Plaque and tartar are removed while retaining the natural dentine.

This Lavera Basis Sensitiv Toothpaste for sensitive teeth has been my favourite for quite a good couple of years now. So when I came across it on LoveLula.com I was reminded of how good it is and that I hadn't reviewed it yet! Firstly, the toothpaste has a pleasant minty scent and flavour which isn't overpowering, this is good as some vegan toothpaste's I've tried have tasted horrible. The toothpaste foams up really well, unlike most vegan toothpaste's I've tried before. It also leaves my teeth feeling clean and my breath smelling fresh after every use. Lastly, the sensitive side of this toothpaste has really helped with a couple of exposed root surfaces that I have and they no longer hurt like they used. Overall I'm so glad that I've finally come across my favourite vegan toothpaste!

Glossworks Nail & Cuticle Oil - Review*





Softens and moisturises nails and cuticles. This simple, yet effective formula uses only natural ingredients. Avocado Oil exhibits rapid absorption and high skin penetration and is a rich source of vitamin A, D & E. With anti-oxidant properties, to help moisturise and promote healthy skin and nails!

I wanted to treat my nails to something a little different than my usual nail care routine. I ended up coming across Glossworks' Nail & Cuticle Oil on LoveLula.com. I've used oils on my fingers before but not for awhile so I thought I give this one a go. After trimming my cuticle skin and filing my nails down I applied the Nail & Cuticle Oil to my nails and the surrounding skin. There's a natural light scent to the oil but nothing overpowering for me which is good. Only a small amount of oil is needed as a little goes a long way. The bottle is easy to use and the pipette allows you to control where the oil is going. The oil itself rubs in nicely and doesn't leave my nails feeling greasy or wet. My nails were then left feeling very soft and smooth throughout the day.

I've really enjoyed using Elsa's Organic Skin Foods Deodorants in Dew, Ocean and Love from LoveLula.com this month! Natural deodorants don't stop you from sweating as they don't block your pores like commercialised ones do. I've been using natural deodorants for about a year now so I'm pretty used to sweating naturally like we should do. The weather's slowly been getting warmer here in the UK, so I've actually been able to test these deodorants out in the heat. I've tested a lot of natural deodorants in my blogging days and most haven't been great for me, but I'm happy to say that Elsa's Organic Deodorants are now up there with my top five natural deodorant favourites. The product itself is a waxy formula which almost heats up when it comes into contact with the skin, the deodorant then slides on easily protecting your armpits all day. Elsa's Organic Deodorants have worked really well for me, I wasn't sweating loads throughout the day like I have done with other natural deodorants and each scent smells amazing which lingers all day. The only downside for me is that the packaging is all plastic and the deodorants can leave marks on clothing (which can be washed out), but other than that these deodorants are great!

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!

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!

The nail lacquer goes on really easily and is also easy to remove with the brands nail polish remover. I personally found that two coats of Poppy is needed to get full coverage of the colour. I also really like the rubber handle which I find easy to keep a hold of when applying the product. I can't wait to wear this shade when I have a Summer tan!
