I love a good hand cream, so when I came across this Odylique Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie from LoveLula I thought I'd give it a go due to its name sounding amazing. Firstly, it smells lovely, very fresh and fruity which I love. The hand cream itself rubs in nicely and doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy afterwards which I really dislike with hand creams. All in all, my hands are left feeling very soft and all dry areas are fully moisturised after use.

BeBarefaced Anti Wrinkle Moisturiser - Review*



At BeBarefaced we’re committed to helping achieve barefaced confidence through the power of natural ingredients. While we may appear playful, we take our formulations very seriously. If we don't think it’s natural and doing some good then we don't add it in! All our products are made with precision and care to deliver a category-leading performance worthy of your trust. Our high performing formulas focus on carefully selected natural ingredients combined with antioxidants and essential oils, ensuring that our products are honest, natural and effective.

Our Anti-Wrinkle Moisturiser harnesses the power of vitamin A. Boasting many anti ageing benefits, it's a must for your skincare regime if anti ageing is on your priority list. This Moisturiser is a powerful anti ageing tool, effectively targeting the trickiest skin concerns; wrinkles, loss of volume, uneven skin tone and sun damaged skin. 1% Vitamin A complex fights free radical damage that causes ageing. Cells are turned over faster targeting not only wrinkles and fine lines but also spot prone skin. Skin plumping Hyaluronic Acid locks in water content giving skin a volume boost while reducing wrinkles. Collagen reduces the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines. And Antioxidants Vitamin C and E repairs sun damaged skin and protects against photo-ageing.

I've always steered clear of anti-aging creams, as the ones I've tried so far have been too thick for my oily based skin. I came across the BeBarefaced Anti Wrinkle Moisturiser on LoveLula and decided to give it a go as the description of it sounded great. The moisturiser rubs in really well and doesn't need much rubbing in at all. It does tend to leave my skin a little oily at the end of the day though. So because of this, I've only been using the cream in the evening before I go to sleep, which has helped. My skin is left feeling soft after use and I've noticed that the lines on my forehead have reduced slightly.

BeBarefaced 3 in 1 Eye Gel - Review*



At BeBarefaced we’re committed to helping achieve barefaced confidence through the power of natural ingredients. While we may appear playful, we take our formulations very seriously. If we don't think it’s natural and doing some good then we don't add it in! All our products are made with precision and care to deliver a category-leading performance worthy of your trust. Our high performing formulas focus on carefully selected natural ingredients combined with antioxidants and essential oils, ensuring that our products are honest, natural and effective.

BeBarefaced 3 in 1 Eye Gel combines three powerful ingredients Marine Collagen, Vitamin E and Argan Oil, to rehydrate and revitalise the eye area. Marine collagen reduces fine lines and restores volume lost from premature ageing. The delicate eye area is susceptible to sun damage and over time this starts to develop wrinkles and affect skin laxity. Antioxidants Vitamin E and Green Tea work to repair these effects of photoaged eyes, visibly lifting and brightening the eye contour, reducing dark circles and discolouration. Aloe vera hydrates, cools and minimises puffiness waking up tired eyes. And Argan oil locks in moisture targeting the ageing effects of dehydration.

I hadn't been getting on with my previous eye cream, so when I came across BeBarefaced's 3 in 1 Eye Gel on LoveLula I decided that is was time to try out a new one. I've had trouble with eye gels in the past where they've left my skin feeling very sticky, but this gel soaks into my skin really well which is great. The skin around my eyes is left feeling softer after use and I can see visible differences in the smoothness of my skin and the fine lines.

On the hunt for a new eye make-up remover, I came across NATorigin's Eye Make-up Remover Emulsion from LoveLula which I thought sounded great. Firstly, the cream-based lotion smells lovely and I can't stop smelling it every time I use it. It removes my mascara very well and doesn't sting my eyes at all, which is great for my sensitive eyes. The bottle is also really easy to use when it comes to squeezing the product out.

Bondi Sands Self Tanning Lotion in Light / Medium & Resusable Self-Tan Application Mit - Review*




Inspired by Australia’s most well-known beach, and a desire to make the ultimate tan accessible to everyone, our salon quality formulas work to give you an even, naturally golden tan that hydrates and nourishes .your skin meaning you stay bronzed for longer. Owned and made in Australia.

Look like you’ve spent the day at the beach, all year round. A lotion that dries in seconds to reveal a rich, natural looking tan. Infused with Aloe Vera and Coconut, to ensure your tan lasts longer, Bondi Sands’ lightweight, Self-Tanning Lotion will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. Perfect for light and medium skin tones.

The Bondi Sands Self Tanning Mitt enables you to apply an even streak-free, flawless tan every time. And what’s better is that you’ll never have stained hands again. Washable and reusable, perfect for Bondi Sands, Mists, Foams and Lotions.

I was kindly sent these two personally selected products from Annalisa to review for Bondi Sands. Firstly, I absolutely love the coconut infused scent of the Self Tanning Lotion in Light / Medium, it smells divine. So after prepping my skin and applying the fake tan with the very soft Application Mit, I immediately saw amazing results (as shown in the above photo). With the Application Mit being as soft as it is, this helps to apply the product evenly all over the body. The tan washes off very easily, meaning you're not left with any unwanted marks when you've finished applying. I'm super looking forward to using this product in the Summertime, especially because of its coconut scent!

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.

A gentle Deodorant Spray that offers 24h protection.

When working long shifts I like to have a freshen up deodorant in my locker at work. I came across this Lavera Deodorant Spray with Wild Rose from LoveLula.com and thought it'd be great for this. The deodorant comes in a glass bottle which is a lot nicer than a plastic one, although the lid is plastic. I also really like the push-down spray button as it makes it a lot easier to apply the spray all over in a mist. I chose this particular deodorant as I love rose scented products, making this spray the perfect scent for me. Overall, the product does a good job of keeping me smelling fresh throughout my day whenever I need a little freshen up.

Hairy Jayne Citrus Hair Perfume & Heat Protection - Review*




Hair care for dry hair. Handmade with natural ingredients and fragranced with essential oils, approved by the Vegan Society. Hairy Jayne isn't actually hairy! She's a hairdresser (with lots of hair) who listens to her clients about their one biggest hair problem – dry hair. All of Hairy Jayne's products are designed to be nourishing, moisturising or protecting. All are packed with ingredients derived from nature, fragranced with essential oil blends, are highly biodegradable, paraben free and 100% cruelty-free.

Hair Perfume with Heat Protection protects wet hair from heat when blowdrying and adds freshness and shine to dry hair whenever it needs it. If you find washing your hair a pain-in-the-neck, or if frequent shampooing is drying your hair out or stripping the colour, this is for you! Not just a perfume, it adds shine, calms frizz and protects your hair from heat – all in one spritz. Citrus fragrance made from a blend of Grapefruit, May Chang & Jasmine.

I always forget to use heat protection on my hair, so when I came across the lovely looking Hairy Jayne Citrus Hair Perfume & Heat Protection on LoveLula.com, I thought it would make me remember! I really love that this product comes in a glass jar and not a plastic bottle. Unfortunately, I'm not too keen on the scent of this product but I love the fact that it does its job by protecting my hair from heat. It also works really well when my hair needs a little freshen up if there's no time to completely wash it. Overall, I'm definitely looking forward to trying the other scent of this product which might be more to my liking.

At the animal sanctuary, there are also environmental projects, for example, the planting of 6000 trees, and the cultivating of area’s for insects and wild rabbits and foxes.

I was kindly sent this Prasada Moisturising Cream from ekaH to review for them after Helen had contacted me via email. I accepted to review the product as I loved the background of ekaH and the moisturising cream sounded great. Firstly, I absolutely love the scent of this cream it smells amazing. I'm not sure as to whether the cream is meant for your body or your face... Personally, it would be too heavy for me to use on my face due to my oily skin, but I've found it's great to use on my legs. Due to the cream being super thick and creamy my legs are left feeling really soft and hydrated after use. And the amazing scent lingers throughout the day which is an added bonus for me! When it comes to the packaging, I personally feel that a glass jar over the current plastic one would look a lot better and would finish off the classy look of the product. Overall, this is a great moisturiser that I can't stop smelling!

Clean, tasty and ethical, the balms include super moisturising delights like Certified Organic Shea Butter & soothing Jojoba oil.

This magical combo can do no wrong! Fresh, bright blueberries whisked together with tart, Meyer lemon, pure bliss! Super moisturising with shea butter and jojoba oil. 100% natural, Vegan, Certified Cruelty Free. 

I'm a big fan of lip balms and the other day I actually fully used one up! When I found this Blueberry Lemon Crazy Rumors 100% Natural Lip Balm on LoveLula.com I definitely had to try it out as it sounded amazing. For some reason, I don't think I've had a blueberry muffin since going vegan and this lip balm smells exactly how I remember blueberry muffins to be, super sweet and moreish. Due to their extensive range of amazing scents, Crazy Rumors Lip Balms are probably the best vegan lip balms out there. My lips are left feeling really soft and super hydrated after use which is why I love using their lip balms throughout my day.

Fair Squared Lime Foot Fresher - Review*



Fair Squared offer cosmetic and personal hygiene products made from certified fairly traded and natural ingredients. They are an alternative trade organisation who have fair dealings with producers from some of the world`s poorest countries and were one of the first companies to be labelled with the well-known Fairtrade logo.

Soften and smooth hard skin with this zesty moisturiser for the feet. Fairtrade Argan Oil from Morocco. Vegan, Fairtrade and Natrue certified.

I came across this Fair Squared Lime Foot Fresher on LoveLula.com whilst on the hunt for a new foot cream to replace my old one. After having a shower, I really like to moisturise my feet to keep them hydrated and soft skinned. This foot cream soaks in really well and leaves my feet feeling super soft after use. The scent is light and refreshing which will be perfect for the Summer. For me, the cardboard box that the bottle comes in isn't really needed as it causes more waste. And I would prefer a pump for this bottle or a pot of the cream to make use a little easier. Overall, this is a great foot cream with great ingredients.

Since rediscovering eye shadow I've been wanting to try out more and more colours than usual. I choose the Emani Vegan Cosmetics Trio Eye Shadow in Tango to review from LoveLula.com, as the dark trio captured my eyes. All three shades blend really well together and have a lovely shimmer to them. Unfortunately, the shade that I was looking forward to trying out most doesn't look the same as it does when on. For me, the burgundy shade is a lot browner than you think it would be and I was hoping for a redder shade. It's not a favourite coloured shade but it does create a great dark look when all three of the shades are blended together.

Lavera Natural Q10 Concealer in Ivory 01 - 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 pleasant formula of the Natural Concealer with Q10 active ingredient complex and carefully selected, high-quality organic ingredients such as organic liquorice root extract and organic shea butter hides under-eye shadows and redness. This makes you look fresher and more awake, while sensitive skin is moisturised to restore its natural elasticity. To hide under-eye shadows, apply the concealer in the inner corner of your eyes and under the eyes. Then blend in with your fingertips.

I've been on the hunt recently to find the perfect shade of concealer for my skin tone. I came across this Lavera Natural Q10 Concealer in Ivory 01 on LoveLula.com and thought I'd try it out for the underneath of my eyes. Unfortunately, Ivory 01 isn't really my shade as it makes my skin look very orange and patchy. I also can't seem to blend the product into my skin very well, but this may just be me not being able to blend very well in the first place. This concealer definitely hides any under-eye shadows but it's a little tricky to get it to look natural due to it being the wrong shade for my skin. Here's hoping that I find the perfect match to my skin tone soon!

Organically Epic Adult Charcoal Infused Bamboo Firm Toothbrush - Review*




These beautiful toothbrushes are made from sustainably grown, ethically sourced bamboo. One of Mother Natures fastest growing grasses. The handle is 100% biodegradable. The bristles are infused with Charcoal to brighten the teeth by being slightly abrasive, lifting stains and absorbing tannins as you brush. The bristles are nylon so will need to be recycled. Activated charcoal has been used for centuries to detoxify the mouth and brighten smiles. The natural antiseptic qualities of Charcoal help to fight bacteria as well as being anti-inflammatory to help soothe inflamed gums. Mother Natures remedy for good oral health. Sustainable packaging that can be recycled or composted. Made with love for you and your family.

Organic and Natural Dental has always been a love and passion of Jayne's so it was only natural that Organically Epic would launch their own toothbrushes, shortly be followed by other dental products. We are a small business with big dreams.

Over the years I've tried many different bamboo toothbrushes to swap my plastic ones with but unfortunately, I've never got on with them. Having not tried one for about a year I decided to give them another chance. I ended up coming across this newly stocked Organically Epic Adult Charcoal Infused Bamboo Firm Toothbrush from LoveLula.com. As much as I want to, I just can't seem to get on with any bamboo toothbrushes. And unfortunately, this one has the same fate as the rest. What annoys me the most is that bamboo toothbrushes are SO environmentally friendly compared to plastic ones. The reason I can't get on with them is that I really dislike the texture of the bamboo in my mouth. The head on this toothbrush is bigger than any other bamboo toothbrushes that I've tried and sadly it felt too big for my little mouth. I did feel that the brush gave my teeth a really good clean despite being too big though. So after trying yet another bamboo toothbrush, I'm sadly still in a love-hate relationship with them.

A light gel textured eyeshadow base that helps keep eyeshadow in place all day long!

I'm not an avid eye shadow user, but when I do use it I'd rather it didn't crease towards the end of my day or evening leaving my look a little worse for wear. That's where Lavera's Eye Shadow Base from LoveLula.com comes in handy. I've never used an eye shadow base before, so when I applied the product to my eyelids they did feel a little sticky afterwards. Not long after, I realised that the product had soaked in nicely. With the Eye Shadow Base on my eyelids, I am also able to create a darker look with any eyeshaow due to the moisture from the gel. The eyeshadow seemed to stay in place longer than usual and is a great way to elongate your look.

Lavera Organic Eye Make-Up Remover - 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.

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 soft and gentle Lavera Eye Make-Up Remover carefully removes eye make-up from the delicate and sensitive skin around the eyes and lashes. It has been developed using the best organic and natural ingredients nature has to offer and has been specially formulated with skin caring organic Aloe Vera and organic Sea Buckthorn which is particularly suitable for sensitive skin. The Lavera Organic Eye Make-Up Remover has also been tested by dermatologists and ophthalmologists.

In need of a replacement for my current running out eye make-up remover, I decided to try out this Lavera Organic Eye Make-Up Remover from LoveLula.com. The product itself smells lovely and it comes in a good sized bottle. I found it removes my eye make-up well (even waterproof mascara), meaning it doesn't take me long to remove a full eye of eye make-up. The only downside is that if you use a lot of the product and do accidentally get it directly in your eyes it does sting. Other than that I really like this eye make-up remover from Lavera and I will continue to use it in the future.

Those Bambi Salon One Week Vegan Cluster Lashes - Review


The Bambi salon is where you can enjoy a quiet, home-based, cruelty-free and vegan salon experience either in Gravesend or in Hartley, Kent. Better for you, better for the environment and better for the animals. The team is made up of two vegan sisters, Gina and Danielle who are on a mission to help make us feel amazing using only ethical and moral brands. Bambi even has a gang that you can sign up to as well. You'll get loads of vegan beauty information including an exclusive #GangPerks offer sent to your inbox every month. They also have a private group on Facebook where you can ask absolutely anything and chat with other members.

 


Danielle is the lash extension queen, over at the Hartley home salon, she loves creating the perfect lashes for her clients to wake up to every, single morning. You're welcomed to get cosy in the beauty chair upon the super soft blankets whilst you have your treatment done. With world-leading quality lash extensions and five different curl types as well as different thickness' and colours to choose from, you know Danielle can find the perfect style for you. I've had a fair few treatments done at the lovely home salon in Hartly from false lashes to gel toenails. And I've actually managed to try out most of the false lashes that Danielle has available. On my last appointment, Danielle took some photos of my lovely looking lashes which made me think about writing a review on them and about the great Bambi Salon.

One Week Clusters Lashes £25

The lashes used are from Nouveau Lashes who are a proud cruelty-free company. Pre-made clusters of five hairs each are applied along your lash line to give a fuller lash effect in half an hour. They need to be removed after one week of wear, either in the salon or with a home removal kit. Perfect for special occasions and weekends away. If you've never had the treatment before you'll need a quick patch test twenty-four hours before your treatment.



I've never been very good at applying false lashes, so when I came across the Vegan Bambi Salon over a year ago now, I loved the idea of someone applying them for me instead. The whole lash experience is a great pick me up and I like to get mine done for any special occasions that I have. This time I only wanted my false lashes for that weekend, so I went for the One Week Cluster Lashes. For the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours, you're advised to not get your lashes wet due to the glue still bonding your lashes together. So please keep this in mind when getting your lashes done before any special occasions. For me, my lashes last around four to five days if I go out partying in them, but with extra care, they should last just under a full week. Danielle is great at applying all different types of lashes and I'm always happy with the outcome that she's achieved for me!

Nature's Wish Peace Roller Ball has definitely helped me feel calmer when I've needed to do so.

I simply love the look of the new range that PBH Ethical Beauty has brought out and the glass packaging is amazing. You can buy the new range from LoveLula.com which is where I came across it. This Skin Perfector Bio-Gel from PHB Ethical Beauty smells lovely and I love using it on my body as it sinks in quickly. The only problem I have is that it seems to leave my facial skin feeling a little heavy so I prefer to use it in the evenings before I go to sleep rather than in the mornings. This product is great at leaving my skin feel super soft, making it the perfect product to keep my scars and stretch marks hydrated!

Fair Squared Intimate Peeling Scrub, Washing Lotion & Deodorant Cream - Review*





Fair Squared offer cosmetic and personal hygiene products made from certified fairly traded and natural ingredients. They are an alternative trade organisation who have fair dealings with producers from some of the world`s poorest countries and were one of the first companies to be labelled with the well-known Fairtrade logo.

Apricot Peeling Intimate

This gentle scrub is an important preparatory step before shaving the intimate area as it helps to open the pores and removes dead skin cells which can help prevent ingrowing hairs and painful razor nicks. A key ingredient in the Fair Squared Intimate Peeling is Fairtrade apricot kernel oil, from Pakistan, which helps to soothe and hydrate the skin.


Apricot Wash Lotion Intimate

A mild and gentle intimate wash, suitable for even the most sensitive skin. 


Apricot Deodorant Cream Intimate

Developed for women of all ages this rich cream deodorises and nourishes the sensitive skin in the genital area leaving it feeling fresh and smooth. It contains Fairtrade apricot kernel oil and is formulated to match the natural pH value of the intimate area. Suitable for daily use.


I wanted to pamper myself a little bit so I decided to try out Fair Squared's lovely looking Intimate set from LoveLula.com. Firstly, I love the colour scheme and the design of the packaging, it's so cute! All three products have different bottle tops to one another. My favourites are the Washing Lotion (screw lid) and the Deodorant Cream (small pump) as they're easier and less messy to use than the Scrub (Peeling) bottle which has a push-down and pop-up lid. I personally don't see the need for both the Scrub and the Washing Lotion, as they're both very similar to one another. For me, I prefer the scrub to the shower gel as it gives a nice gentle exfoliation to the skin as well as cleaning the area. All three products smell really nice and fresh which is great if you're feeling a little self-conscious. I also love that all of these products are Fairtrade.
