Acorelle Eau Fraiche in Silky Rose - Review*

Silky Rose is a mellow fruity raspberry perfume emphasised with rose floral water. All of Acorelle's eau fraiches are composed of wheat alcohol, organic essential oils with active properties, and floral waters which are 100% organic and adapted to each fragrance.


  • Head notes: rosebuds, lychee
  • Heart notes: rosegeranium, freesia
  • Base notes: raspberry
Quite recently I've been on the hunt for some new scents, so I'm very happy that I came across this lovely Acorelle rose scent from this month. I love how subtle the smell of this product is and for me this means I can wear it casually throughout the day or for evenings out. I find the that scent can linger a good few hours but if you wanted the smell to last longer you could always spray the product elsewhere, such as your wrists. I also love that this product doesn't involve phthalates, artificial colours. artificial musk or synthetic chemicals.

Yes To Tomatoes Combination Skin Daily Clarifying Cleanser - Review*

After running out of my previous cleanser I was on the hunt for a new one to try out. I ended up coming across this Yes To Tomatoes combination skin cleanser, which I requested from from for reviewing purposes this month. 

Yes To Tomatoes is specially formulated with witch hazel and salicylic acid to help treat acne breakouts and keep oily-combination skin in tip top condition.  Made with 98% natural ingredients, Yes To Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser is perfect for combination skin. The naturally derived formulation blends tomato and watermelon extracts with other ingredients to help keep combination skin balanced and clear. The cleanser also maintains your skin's pH balance while removing excess oils and impurities, purifying and refreshing your complexion. 

Of course the first thing I had to do when I received my product was smell it. I've loved previous Yes To Tomato scents before but this is probably the best so far as it's so sweet and fruity! As I ditched my electric face brush about a month ago I went back to basics with this cleanser and have been wetting my face with warm water, squeezing a bit of the product into my finger tips, massaging into my face for about a minute and then rinsing it all off with cold water. This routine has worked like a dream and has cleared my previous breakouts up. I find the that product can be drying after use so be sure to use a good facial moisturiser afterwards. Other than the product being a little drying to my skin after use this cleanser is great and I've nearly used the bottle up!

ERiiS Sun Triple Protection Sun Filter in SPF 30 - Review*

ERiiS Sun is a complete range of sun protection milk that combines a new and innovative filtering system with the energy of fresh fruit extracts. Triple action UVA, UVB, and Infrared-A protection, in a real juice formula, to refresh the skin before, during and after sun exposure.

This is an innovative complex of sun protective filters for triple UVA, UVB and Infrared-A protection. It actively targets free radicals generated by exposure to sun and helps prevent damage to skin cells, including the formation of solar scars, and protect against premature ageing and the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and loss of skin elasticity. 

Carrot Fresh Cells Extract:
 A real live microencapsulated cellular extract from the carrot root It is a natural source of beta-carotene, useful in repairing skin tissue. It deeply hydrates the skin whilst ensuring an intense even tan. 

Vitamin A, C, E:
 Vitamin complex with high refreshing and antioxidant efficacy for the skin. It helps to protect and regenerate skin stressed by sun exposure by limiting the risk of erythema and abnormal pigmentation.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Rebecca requesting if I'd like to try out a new sun protection product that was hitting the UK. I've only ever tired one brand of vegan and cruelty-free sun cream so I thought I'd give ERiiS Sun a go! I ended up going for their Sun Protection Milk in SPF 30 as this suits my skin the best. ERiiS Sun is said to be an extra gentle formulation and is both paraben and allergen-free. I really love the smell of this sun cream, it has the typical 'sun cream' scent but I'd say it's a bit more subtle than others I've previously come across. I found that due to its light oil-free consistency the cream itself absorbs quickly into the skin and it doesn't leave any white marks afterwards, which is a bonus! I also love that the product is presented in a bottle with a pump as this makes it a hygienic and practical way to apply the sun cream. Overall I'm quite happy that I've come across this sun protection range and I'll happily use it again.
