Lavera Cover Stick in Ivory 01 - Review*

The core of Lavera’s philosophy can be found in its name: which literally means ‘the truth’, which is the founding principle of the company and the cosmetics they produce. Lavera is totally committed to bringing you the healthiest and safest, high quality, pure natural and organic products. They are proud to be certified organic by NATRUE and have over 100 products certified vegan by the Vegan Society. All Lavera products are free from animal testing.

A specially formulated Cover Stick with organic witch hazel that conceals and hides blemishes, redness and imperfections to leave the skin flawlessly radiant.

This Lavera Cover Stick in Ivory 01 that I came across on LoveLula.com is perfect for hiding those little 'imperfections' without wearing a face full of make-up to cover them. I love how easy this cover stick is to use, it blends into my skin without trying too hard. The product tends to cling to dry skin so it's best to exfoliate and moisturise before using it. It's also great for covering up tired looking eyes and is a handy item to keep in your bag when out.

Pacifica 7 Free Nail Polish Rainbow Top Coat - 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 silver top coat (with rainbow opalescent finish) goes on smooth and stays put. Our new 7 Free Nail Polish is long lasting and void of many chemicals that one would find in traditional nail polish. Plus we have added a custom wide 100% vegan brush for easier application! 7 FREE is formulated without parabens, phthalates (dibutyl phthalate), toluene, xylene, camphor, formaldehyde, resin, and animals. 

I was looking for a glittery nail colour to use over the Christmas period and ended up coming across Pacifica's Rainbow Top Coat on LoveLula.com. The polish is super easy to apply, a little harder to remove but I feel like a Glitter Princess when I wear it so I don't mind so much! It looks great used on its own if you're wanting something a little more subtle but it also looks amazing on top of darker colours too.

A gentle scrub for a brightness boost. Cleanses, brightens and refines. Get the twin action of a mask and scrub, gently exfoliating the skin, leaving it clearer and brighter.

I haven't been using face scrub's for a while as my skin flared up about a month ago, so I stripped back the cosmetics that I was using on my face. Now that my skin is a lot better I decided to give this Gallinée Prebiotic Face Mask and Scrub from LoveLula.com a go. Firstly, I love how this face scrub can also be used as a face mask if left on for five minutes. Secondly, I've been on the hunt for a face scrub exactly like this one since going vegan four years ago. After a few years searching, I've finally found my perfect vegan face scrub! It's thick and creamy, exfoliates really well and it doesn't leave my skin feeling oily after use. The face scrub also has a really lovely peach scent which is an added bonus.

I was running low on eye make-up remover so I decided to have a look for a new one on LoveLula.com. I ended up coming across this NATorigin Eye Make-up Remover Lotion. The lotion works really well and removes my mascara really easily in just a few gentle rubs. The lotion didn't sting or leave my eyes feeling sore after removing my mascara which is great. I also really like how easy the bottle is to use, as you can apply as much or as little remover to your face cloth as needed.
