Yes To Tomatoes Combination Skin Daily Pore Scrub - Review*

Yes To Tomatoes is specially formulated with witch hazel and salicylic acid to treat acne breakouts and keep oily-combination skin in tip-top condition.

This acne-fighting scrub is powerful enough to combat blackheads and breakouts, but gentle enough for daily use. Ground mango seeds and bamboo exfoliate skin and help skin turnover a clean, clear surface. The Salicylic Acid helps to combat acne-prone skin and blemishes, Tomatoes help unclog pores and a blend of Ginger Root and Bisabolol helps skin avoid redness.

The first product I decided that I would like to review from MyPure this month, was this Yes To Tomatoes Combination Skin Daily Pore Scrub! I've always liked the idea of the Yes To range as they have so many different products to offer. At first, I was a bit sceptical about how this face scrub might smell, as it is made from tomatoes... But after having a smell of the product I was very surprised at how mild the scent was and how little it smelt of tomatoes. I find the scrub itself to be quite thin, but despite this I find the small grains work well with the consistency of the product. After using the scrub on my face, my skin felt clean and a lot softer. With the spot/acne reducing side of this product I haven't been able to see any physical change in my appearance as my skin is so up and down lately. But hopefully, the more I use the product the more I will notice a difference in my appearance.

Salt of the Earth Natural Foot Deodorant Spray - Review*

Unlike traditional antiperspirants, which block the skin’s pores and impede the body’s natural sweat production process, Salt of the Earth won’t block your pores, instead, it works by leaving a thin layer of natural mineral salts on your skin, which inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria. Comprising 100% natural ingredients, including natural botanical extracts and oils, mineral salts and organic Aloe Vera, Salt of the Earth is kind to skin, allowing your body to function naturally while protecting you from body-odour. What’s more, Salt of the Earth deodorants are kind on clothing and won’t leave any embarrassing white marks!

Fresh feet are only a spray away with the latest member of the Salt of the Earth Family – the all-new, 100% natural deodorant formulated specifically for your feet. Containing calming aloe vera and infused with an invigorating menthol fragrance, the unisex Salt of the Earth Foot Deodorant Spray offers long-lasting, effective protection from foot odour, whilst simultaneously cooling and soothing tired toes.

I was kindly sent the new Natural Foot Deodorant Spray from Crystal Spring to review. The first thing I did was undo the bottle to take a whiff as I was intrigued by the 'cooling menthol fragrance' that's stated on the bottle. To my surprise, it smelt lovely and most definitely like cooling menthol (a bit like chewing gum). I had a family party coming up, I knew I would be standing and moving around on my feet for quite a few hours in my new sandals. So when I was getting ready I massaged the spray into my clean feet and let it get to work. After my night of moving around in my sandals, it was time to smell my feet to see if the product had actually worked. And guess what, it had! It seemed to work well and my feet were left non-sweaty and not so smelly as I thought they might be. This product would be great for both male and female, especially if you do activities regularly or you're on your feet all day and would like your feet to stay smelling fresh when it comes to the end of your day.

The Mooncup Menstrual Cup, One Year On - Review

Over a year ago I nervously purchased my first ever Mooncup*. If you'd 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 more than a year 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!
