Glossworks Nail & Cuticle Oil - Review*

Softens and moisturises nails and cuticles. This simple, yet effective formula uses only natural ingredients. Avocado Oil exhibits rapid absorption and high skin penetration and is a rich source of vitamin A, D & E. With anti-oxidant properties, to help moisturise and promote healthy skin and nails!

I wanted to treat my nails to something a little different than my usual nail care routine. I ended up coming across Glossworks' Nail & Cuticle Oil on I've used oils on my fingers before but not for awhile so I thought I give this one a go. After trimming my cuticle skin and filing my nails down I applied the Nail & Cuticle Oil to my nails and the surrounding skin. There's a natural light scent to the oil but nothing overpowering for me which is good. Only a small amount of oil is needed as a little goes a long way. The bottle is easy to use and the pipette allows you to control where the oil is going. The oil itself rubs in nicely and doesn't leave my nails feeling greasy or wet. My nails were then left feeling very soft and smooth throughout the day.

I've really enjoyed using Elsa's Organic Skin Foods Deodorants in Dew, Ocean and Love from this month! Natural deodorants don't stop you from sweating as they don't block your pores like commercialised ones do. I've been using natural deodorants for about a year now so I'm pretty used to sweating naturally like we should do. The weather's slowly been getting warmer here in the UK, so I've actually been able to test these deodorants out in the heat. I've tested a lot of natural deodorants in my blogging days and most haven't been great for me, but I'm happy to say that Elsa's Organic Deodorants are now up there with my top five natural deodorant favourites. The product itself is a waxy formula which almost heats up when it comes into contact with the skin, the deodorant then slides on easily protecting your armpits all day. Elsa's Organic Deodorants have worked really well for me, I wasn't sweating loads throughout the day like I have done with other natural deodorants and each scent smells amazing which lingers all day. The only downside for me is that the packaging is all plastic and the deodorants can leave marks on clothing (which can be washed out), but other than that these deodorants are great!

Organyc 100% Organic Cotton Buds - Review *

Organyc only uses 100% organic cotton. Conventional cotton buds are usually made of synthetic materials such as viscose, rayon, polypropylene and superabsorbent polymers. These materials are predominately plastic and ultimately made from our diminishing crude oil resources that cannot biodegrade. Using our products which are biodegradable can make such a difference.

Made from 100% certified organic cotton, making them ideal for use as part of a gentle but effective skincare routine.

I've actually been using these Organyc Cotton Buds for a few years now and since seeing them on I've been wanting to write a little review about them. These work like any other cotton bud but are extra special as they're both biodegradable and compostable. The packaging that they come in is also fully recyclable. The cotton buds are very simple to use and are also really soft and gentle. So say goodbye to non-biodegradable and non-compostable plastic cotton buds and swap over to these Organyc cotton that we can use without feeling guilty!
