Ere Perez Olive Oil Lipstick in Royal - Review*





Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics is an Australian natural makeup brand with Mexican heritage that prides itself on producing the highest quality, toxin-free, healthy and easy-to-use makeup. Founded in 2004 by Ere Perez, a Mexican-born natural therapist who has lived in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs for many years, Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics is an independent brand of toxin-free makeup, made from high-quality GMO-free and certified Cruelty Free ingredients.

We love our party-themed lipsticks - there’s one for every occasion! This gorgeous naturally long-lasting lipstick is uniquely formulated with olive oil to help moisturise and hydrate your lips to the max, delivering pure, smooth, highly pigmented colour. 

I've been searching for a darker shade of lipstick for a while now. When I came across this Ere Perez Olive Oil Lipstick in Royal from Love Lula, I fell in love immediately. The lipstick itself is perfectly packaged, giving it a great outer look. I find the lipstick applies very smoothly, which is great if you want to build up the shade into a darker look. I also love that the shade actually matches its online swatches in real life. It also removes very easily, leaving no stains on my lips which is a bouns. Overall, this lipstick is a great addition to my make-up collection!

Benecos Raspberry Lip Balm - Review*



For a long time, natural cosmetics had a bland, generic look, limited product choices and, generally, high prices. However, this is no longer the case because at Benecos we offer bright, modern, cruelty-free products all at affordable prices. Our products are natural and organic and our makeup range is filled with a variety of colours, so say goodbye to dull and boring and hello to the vibrant and dynamic world of Benecos colour cosmetics!

A sweet lip balm with Organic Raspberry Seed Oil and Organic Shea Butter. Our Natural Lip Balm creates a subtle shine and completely natural look with a fruity raspberry scent. Perfect for everyday use.

I came across this lovely Benecos Raspberry Lip Balm on Love Lula. The lip balm itself has a lovely subtle smell of raspberries, which I really like. I find this balm slides very smoothly over my lips and it doesn't leave my lips feeling sticky afterwards. It also soaks into my lips really well, leaving a slight natural looking shine to them.

Those Bambi Salon Two Week Vegan Express 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 our lash extension fairy. She loves creating perfect lashes for you to wake up to every, single morning so it's time to get yourself cosy on our super soft blankets and let her work her magic. ​ Danielle understands that 'perfect' is different for every single person so we have a little something to suit everyone. Award-winning, premium quality, lash extensions in 5 different curl types as well as different thickness' and colours. ​ If natural is more your kind of perfect, we also offer lash lifts. One of our most popular and low maintenance treatments to date.

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. Danielle kindly took some photos of my lovely looking lashes so I could write another review about these specific lashes the great Bambi Salon.

Two Week Express Lashes £35

If you want the look of a full set of extensions but don't want the maintenance, then Express lashes are for you. The look is created using the same high-quality individual lashes but the process of application is different and quicker. This means they last for two weeks before needing to be removed completely so are perfect for holidays or events. A patch test is needed if you have never had the treatment with us before- your eyes are precious.



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 needed my false lashes for a long weekend away for a Wedding, so I went for the Two Week Express 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 around under twos weeks. Danielle is great at applying all different types of lashes and I'm always happy with the outcome that she's achieved for me!

BeBarefaced Anti Blemish Mattifying Toner - 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-blemish toner is specially designed for unbalanced, blemish-prone skin. Formulated with soothing, natural antiseptic tea tree to calm and sanitise congested skin, protecting from further breakouts. Pore minimising salicylic acid helps clear pores, eliminate excess oil and prevent spots. With only natural alcohols, to ensure that it is non-drying and non-irritating. Moisturising glycerin ensures skin is correctly hydrated, preventing that unpleasant ‘overly dried’ feeling. Leaves skin with a silky - smooth, matte finish and prepared for optimal application of further blemish treatment products.

This BeBarefaced Anti Blemish Mattifying Toner from Love Lula leaves my skin feeling clean and soft after use. The toner is a great pick me up for when your skin is feeling a little heavy or greasy throughout the day. I also like using it before I apply a face mask as it makes my skin super clean before I apply the mask. My only problem with this product is that I would prefer a spray bottle to the pour lid that currently has, as a lot of the toner seems to come out at once.
