Stop The Water While Using Me! Wild Mint Toothpaste - Review*

'Water can't stop itself. But you can.'

Stop The Water While Using Me! is the first natural cosmetics series which combines beauty care and water saving. Active, effective and made from 100% natural ingredients that meet the highest standards of certified natural cosmetics. As such, the brand represents a daily reminder to protect this precious resource as well as attend to one’s own beauty. They use exclusively the best essences and oils that nature has to offer, primarily sourced from organic cultivation. And strictly forego any use of synthetic colour, fragrance and preservatives. All the products are free of silicones, parabens and mineral-based raw materials. Not only is the sustainability of the ingredients important to the company, but also the quality performance of the products. That is why they're constantly working on new, sustainable organic ingredients that have a great effect on skin or hair and are more than just “organic”.

Natural, mineral tooth cleaning is boosted by a high sea salt content and thus prevents tooth decay. This fresh toothpaste also provides natural care for gums: extracts of myrrh, green tea, peppermint and sage firm up and strengthen them. It will leave your mouth feeling unbelievably fresh and the subtle hint of wild mint will turn the ritual of brushing your teeth into an exhilarating experience. 

• Provides natural care for gums. • Helps to prevent cavities. • Sea salt boosts the self-cleaning process.

I came across this Wild Mint Toothpaste by Stop The Water While Using Me! on LoveLula and decided that I needed to try it out due to sticking to my usual toothpaste for a while now. I am in love with the simple yet effective packing of this toothpaste, the message 'stop the water while using me' on the front of the tube is really effective. I really like the fresh minty taste the product gives off when brushing my teeth with the toothpaste. I feel that my teeth are left feeling really clean afterwards.

Pacifica Aquarian Gaze Water-Resistant Mascara Shade Abyss Black - Review*

Pacifica design products to enhance rather than overwhelm; to take you on your own personal journey. Committed to producing the finest quality products, the brand is the expression of a clear philosophy: Don't follow trends, follow your heart and the belief that romance, travel and adventure are all in a day's work! The company is acutely earth-conscious, paying minute attention to formulating the most natural, safe, and sustainable products.

This amazing lengthening brush makes your lashes insanely long and gorgeous as it separates to build volume. The nourishing formula is infused with coconut oil, kelp extract and vitamin B to hydrate each lash as it lengthens and strengthens. Studies have shown that coconut oil is to be an excellent hair strengthener and moisturiser that can reduce breakage, Panthenol (Vitamin B) helps strengthen and nourish hair, whilst Kelp Extract moisturises and conditions the lashes.

Every now and again I like trying out a new mascara. I was on the hunt for a waterproof one this time, as I've never tried out a vegan version. Over on LoveLula, I came across this waterproof mascara by Pacifica which comes in Abyss Black or Deep Blue, I decided to give Abyss Black a go. First off I love the cute design on the mascara's tube, but I do feel that the cardboard box isn't really needed. For me the brush is perfect, it simply lengthens my lashes whilst separating them at the same time. This mascara is very natural looking, almost to the point of it looking like I'm not wearing anything on my lashes. This is great because I personally prefer the more 'natural' look. The mascara is super easy to take off and I do this with coconut oil before I wash my face. Overall a great product from Pacifica which I will probably repurchase in the future!

Maggie Anne Nail Polish in Shade Unda - Review*

'The perfect shade for Winter.'

Maggie Anne is a six toxin free gel-effect nail polish which is ultra glossy and has a high shine, with a sensational gel-like finish. All Maggie Anne gel effect polishes are not only made without the three common chemicals found in nail polishes (Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde) but also without three other very dangerous chemicals (Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor and THTP). 

There's a new shade on the block for 2017 and boy, is it pretty. It's a little grey in tone, but with purple hues mixed in. Glam and full of chic.

As Winter was approaching fast, so were the Christmas parties. I was on the lookout for the perfect shade to go with a couple of dresses that I had recently purchased for my Christmas gatherings. I ended up coming across this lovely shade called Unda by Maggie Anne on LoveLula. Not your usual Christmas party shade, but this grey goes perfectly with all of my black dresses and more. I've been a fan of Maggie Anne's Nail Polishes for a while now and I'll always love the wide brush that they supply you with. Applying this nail polish was like a dream and to my surprise, only one coat was needed for full coverage. I personally find this shade lasted just under a week on my nails with a base coat, which I think is great!
