Ayumi is a natural skincare brand, inspired by the ancient principles of Ayurveda. A holistic brand, lovingly made in the UK, Ayumi is certified as both vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Dating back approximately 5000 years, Ayurveda is an Indian system of health and wellbeing with the aim of reaching a state of content. Now, however, it is more difficult to maintain a balance in our new, urban environment. This is what Ayumi stands for - maintaining balance in our new surroundings. Ayumi is committed to making natural and mindful living available to everyone, bringing back the natural environment even to the busiest of cities. Bursting with aromatic essential oils, organic extracts and Ayurvedic ingredients, Ayumi is designed to balance the skin and the mind.

Body Scrub - A super-foamy body scrub with finest volcanic pumice and ground olive seeds to gently remove deep-seated dirt and grime and slough away dead skin cells to reveal new vibrant skin. A blend of Ayurvedic neem and Nimba envelop the skin with a healthy protective veil, while bearberry, mulberry, moringa and nettle help the skin to a sensuous temptation of smooth softness.

Body Wash - A sumptuous frothy delight that gently cleanses the skin to sparkling softness. A unique blend of bearberry, mulberry, nettle and moringa leaves the skin with sensuous temptation and tone. A blend of Ayurvedic neem, Nimba and tea tree oil envelop the skin with a healthy protective veil, while a tinge of cooling menthol leaves skin feeling fresh, healthy and bursting with freshness.

Body Lotion - A perfectly balanced blend of moisturisers in a fast-absorbing lotion to maintain the ideal level of hydration and softness for oil-prone skin. Witch hazel with a hint of nettle and mulberry gently firms and tones the skin to leave it feeling vibrant. A glorious blend of neem, lemongrass, vetivert, spearmint, patchouli, eucalyptus, cedarwood, cypress and aromatic galbanum surround the skin with an exciting healthy protective veil that refreshingly invigorates both skin and senses. A sparkle of lemon, mandarin, peppermint, spearmint, bergamot mint and menthol leave a zesty zing.

These three Ayumi Neem products from Love Lula go perfectly hand in hand with one another. All three products smell amazing and I really love the design of these bottles. The Body Scrub is great on both dry and wet skin giving a relaxing scrub, even for feet. The Body Wash foams up really well giving a lovely clean and fresh wash. The Body Lotion glides over skin well and soaks in pretty quickly after use, leaving behind a lovely scent. Overall, I'm really glad that I got to try these products out as I now absolutely love them!

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.

A really good shampoo should make you tingle from head to toe. With Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo, invigorating ingredients wash in rejuvenation while washing away the previous day. You are left with something rich, something clean. Something incredibly stimulating... for hair and mind. Think about it.

Conditioner - Hair type normal to oily, dandruff. Recommended for moisturising & volumising conditioner, alleviates dry and flaky scalps. Sends volumising hydration into each individual hair. Smoothes as it nourishes and restores strength. Encourages natural shine and resilience. You expect a conditioner to moisturise, smooth and detangle. You expect it to create a silky, sexy feel. You probably don’t expect it to make you tingle all over. With Tea Tree Triple Treat Conditioner, an incredible plethora of stimulating ingredients provide all of that plus a real treat for hair.

The Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Invigorating Shampoo and Conditioner from Love Lula are the perfect duo! Both the shampoo and conditioner smell of fresh Tea Tree and Mint which I really like. Firstly, I find that the shampoo foams up very well and leaves my hair feeling very clean. Secondly, I find that the conditioner itself is light and doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy. Overall, I really like this duo as they leave my hair feeling clean and soft after use.

Mossa Youth Defence Restoring Eye Cream - Review*

Good skin starts with kind ingredients. That's why we ethically source the juiciest berries from Nordic nature, which are a mega source of nutrients and vitamins. Mossa ingredients and final formulations are ECOCERT/Cosmos certified. So whichever formulation you pick, you can be sure it’s safe, effective, good for your skin and good for the planet. We also take a big step to reduce the ecological footprint by providing our unique formulas with recyclable packaging.

Smooth and treat the eye area with this precious certified organic Restoring Eye Cream. The real hero of this product is the blackberry, rich in Omega 3-6 fatty acids. The rich blackberry extract easily absorbs into the skin in the eye area. Omega 3-6 complex nurtures and hydrates the skin. 92% of women confirmed that the eye area felt firmer in just 4 weeks.

I chose the Mossa Youth Defence Restoring Eye cream from Love Lula to review this month, as I was in need of a new one and thought this one would do the job! I find this eye cream easy to apply and I like how well the product soaks in after applying it. The cream itself smells warming and fruity which I quite like. The bottle is really easy to use and it's a great size for travelling with.

Yes Cleanse Intimate Rose Wash - Review*

The idea that started The Yes Yes Company Ltd in 2003 arose between two friends, Susi Lennox and Sarah Brooks. Susi and Sarah's experience of working in the Drug Safety divisions of major pharmaceutical companies meant they were very aware of the health risks associated with certain synthetic, chemical ingredients. They set themselves the challenge of designing a range of intimacy products that would be completely benign, have no side effects, free of all known skin irritants and be highly effective.

YES CLEANSE - a sensitively formulated organic intimate wash, designed to respect the delicate vaginal ecology, with a refreshing and effective cleansing action. Hypoallergenic Guaranteed Pure and Natural Organic plant actives, Calendula and Aloe Vera. YES CLEANSE has been carefully pH matched to complement and protect the intimate environment. Washes away odour-causing bacteria without irritation. A Propellant free foaming Luxurious feminine washes you can use with confidence and safety day after day. YES Cleanse Rose contains exquisite Organic Rosa Damascena.

I've been using the Yes Cleanse Intimate Rose Wash from Love Lula for a couple of weeks now. I love that the product is a foam wash, as I feel it gives a more of a gentle wash. The wash itself has a lovely delicate scent of roses which I really like. I find that the pump on the bottle is really easy to use in the shower, as there's no need to tip the bottle upside down! This is overall a good product that does exactly what it's meant to do.

Fair Squared Coconut Shower Gel & Body Lotion - 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.

An everyday shower gel formulated with Olive oil to gently cleanse and moisturise the skin. And a moisturising body lotion with coconut oil, olive oil and grape seed oil which is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids to soothe, protect and rejuvenate the skin. Coconut oil is rich in natural vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants which soothe and rejuvenate the skin (anti-ageing). Vegan, Fairtrade and Natrue certified Fairtrade Coconut Oil from Sri Lanka and Fairtrade Palestinian Olive Oil No parabens, phthalates, SLS or PEGs.

Here I have the Fair Squared Coconut Shower Gel and Body Lotion from Love Lula. I've always been a massive fan of coconut-scented products, but I do tend to find it a bit of a hit or miss kind of scent, especially when it comes to body products. Unfortunately, the coconut scent doesn't smell as good as I had hoped for with these two Fair Squared products. On the upside, the body lotion is really easy to rub in and does soak in well, leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturised. Unfortunately, I did find that I needed to use a lot of the shower gel to get a full-body wash, which isn't ideal for me. Overall, these products would be great for someone who prefers lightly scented products.
