I was kindly gifted this lovely Hemper For Her Hamper from Organiqua to share on my blog. The Hemper For Her Hamper includes a face cream, a duo bath bomb set, a body butter bar, hair oil and a lip balm which all come perfectly presented in a wicker basket, making the Hemper Hamper a lovely gift! Each item comes with a little card describing the product, telling us its ingredients and its use by date, which I think is great. I also love that all of the packagings are either reusable or fully bio-degradable. Each product smells lovely and fresh with my favourite being Body Butter Bar which smells of chocolate orange, it glides really well onto the skin leaving it very soft. The scent of the Peppermint Scented Lip Balm is also in my good books and I love how it's packaged in a sliding tin. Unfortunately, I don't own a bathtub so I couldn't try out the Bath Bomb Duo but I can tell you that they also smell really good. The Face Cream is very thick and creamy so a little goes a long way. Lastly, the Hair Oil, I don't tend to use hair oils due to having oily hair but this would be great to use on any slipt ends that you may have. Overall, this Organiqua Hemper For Her Hamper would make a lovely gift for someone and I've loved coming across all of these new products.

Lavera Colour Cosmetics Deep Darkness Mascara In Intense Black - 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 Deep Darkness Mascara, containing only natural mineral colour pigments, comes in a mystical deep black for irresistible, cat-like lashes with extreme volume. The extra-large power brush captures even the shortest of lashes, to give them the ultimate boost without any clumping. Formulated for sensitive and allergy-prone eyes and skin, it’s also dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, so it’s ideal for contact lens wearers. When you consider how quickly eye makeup can be absorbed into your bloodstream, natural really is the only way to go. That’s what sets all of Lavera's mascaras apart from the rest – their natural and non-toxic ingredients – as well as high level of performance.

Recently, I've been loving trying out different mascaras to try and find the perfect one for me. I came across this Lavera Colour Cosmetics Deep Darkness Mascara in Intense Black from LoveLula.com. The brush on this mascara is really good at separating my lashes and applying the mascara evenly. The wand is easy to hold and the thick handle is a great size to work with. I find this mascara lifts my eyelashes nicely but not dramatic enough for me when it's used alone. Overall I'm happy with this mascara for a more natural eyelash look.

Cleanse and detox the skin with this super-efficient cleansing mask. It has been specially formulated with organic Algae and Clay to thoroughly remove environmental dirt whilst gently exfoliating the skin. Natural mineral clay is composed of numerous minerals and trace elements and is well known for its absorbing qualities and deep cleansing effect.

Recently, my skin's been acting up real bad which it hasn't done for a while! I decided it was time to take a trip to see a Doctor. I ended up getting prescribed a gel to use before I sleep and it's been working wonders, so I'm a lot happier. With my skin settled, I wanted to treat my skin to a good quality face mask, I found this Lavera Detox Effect Face Mask over on LoveLula.com. Firstly, I absolutely love the scent of this face mask, it smells good enough to eat! I like to apply face masks before I head into a shower, as I find this an easier way to wash them off. The mask is easy to apply and dries within ten minutes which is great if you're in a rush. After washing the mask off my skin is left feeling a lot softer than before. With the combination of my prescription and this face mask, my pores have visibly gotten smaller, which is great.

As you know, I love a good lip balm so I was on the hunt for a festive scent to add to my collection. This lip balm has a very sweet scent and it perfectly reminds me of Christmas gingerbread biscuits! It applies really well and stays on for a good hour afterwards, along with the scent. It also moisturises my lips nicely, which is perfect for the colder weather.

I came across this Saint Come Aroma Spray Pillow Mist on LoveLula.com, it's said to promote a restful and comforting nights sleep. I haven't used anything like this before so I was intrigued by the product as I haven't been able to get off to sleep very well lately. I would advise that when spraying you try to spray little as possible, as I personally found the scent quite strong and overpowering. The scent is very refreshing and it sets a calm atmosphere to help with drifting off to sleep.
