Those Bambi Salon Two Week Vegan Express Lashes - Review


The Bambi salon is where you can enjoy a quiet, home-based, cruelty-free and vegan salon experience either in Gravesend or in Hartley, Kent. Better for you, better for the environment and better for the animals. The team is made up of two vegan sisters, Gina and Danielle who are on a mission to help make us feel amazing using only ethical and moral brands. Bambi even has a gang that you can sign up to as well. You'll get loads of vegan beauty information including an exclusive #GangPerks offer sent to your inbox every month. They also have a private group on Facebook where you can ask absolutely anything and chat with other members.




Danielle is our lash extension fairy. She loves creating perfect lashes for you to wake up to every, single morning so it's time to get yourself cosy on our super soft blankets and let her work her magic. ​ Danielle understands that 'perfect' is different for every single person so we have a little something to suit everyone. Award-winning, premium quality, lash extensions in 5 different curl types as well as different thickness' and colours. ​ If natural is more your kind of perfect, we also offer lash lifts. One of our most popular and low maintenance treatments to date.

I've had a fair few treatments done at the lovely home salon in Hartly from false lashes to gel toenails. And I've actually managed to try out most of the false lashes that Danielle has available. Danielle kindly took some photos of my lovely looking lashes so I could write another review about these specific lashes the great Bambi Salon.

Two Week Express Lashes £35

If you want the look of a full set of extensions but don't want the maintenance, then Express lashes are for you. The look is created using the same high-quality individual lashes but the process of application is different and quicker. This means they last for two weeks before needing to be removed completely so are perfect for holidays or events. A patch test is needed if you have never had the treatment with us before- your eyes are precious.



I've never been very good at applying false lashes, so when I came across the Vegan Bambi Salon over a year ago now, I loved the idea of someone applying them for me instead. The whole lash experience is a great pick me up and I like to get mine done for any special occasions that I have. This time I needed my false lashes for a long weekend away for a Wedding, so I went for the Two Week Express Lashes. For the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours, you're advised to not get your lashes wet due to the glue still bonding your lashes together. So please keep this in mind when getting your lashes done before any special occasions. For me, my lashes last around four to five days if I go out partying in them, but with extra care, they should last around under twos weeks. Danielle is great at applying all different types of lashes and I'm always happy with the outcome that she's achieved for me!

This BeBarefaced Anti Blemish Mattifying Toner from Love Lula leaves my skin feeling clean and soft after use. The toner is a great pick me up for when your skin is feeling a little heavy or greasy throughout the day. I also like using it before I apply a face mask as it makes my skin super clean before I apply the mask. My only problem with this product is that I would prefer a spray bottle to the pour lid that currently has, as a lot of the toner seems to come out at once.

Emani Lip Shine is a long-lasting formula that may be worn alone or over Emani Hydrating Lip Color for a bolder, multi-dimensional look.

This Emani Lip Shine in Red Wine from Love Lula has a great flat applicator which makes it easy to apply the product across my lips evenly. You can easily create a darker or lighter look with this Lip Shine by applying more or less of the product. The darker shade personally lasts on my lips for around half an hour, after this it fades to a lovely lighter shade.  It's a little sicky once applied, but once it's soaked in it doesn't feel too bad. I find this product easy to remove with make-up remover and it doesn't leave any stains which is great. The product itself also has a lovely sweet scent to it, which I love!


• Long-lasting, multi-dimensional colours for every skin tone • Infuses the lips with moisture, never drying • Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that nurtures the lips • Organic fruit and essential oils combined to keep your lips in optimum health • May be used alone or over lipstick for bold colour combinations • Light reflective ingredients give the lips a lustful finish •

BeBarefaced Anti Blemish Exfoliating Wash - Review*



At BeBarefaced we’re committed to helping achieve barefaced confidence through the power of natural ingredients. While we may appear playful, we take our formulations very seriously. If we don't think it’s natural and doing some good then we don't add it in! All our products are made with precision and care to deliver a category-leading performance worthy of your trust. Our high performing formulas focus on carefully selected natural ingredients combined with antioxidants and essential oils, ensuring that our products are honest, natural and effective.

Our anti blemish exfoliating wash is specially designed to gently treat and prevent stubborn breakouts and blemishes. It provides a gentle exfoliation that won’t leave your skin red and upset. Formulated with soothing, natural antiseptic tea tree to calm and sanitise congested skin, protecting from further breakouts. Pore minimising salicylic acid helps clear pores, eliminate excess oil and prevent spots. Gently exfoliating pumice stones help remove dead skin cells and prevent blemish scarring. Never harsh, drying, stripping or scratchy. With only natural alcohols, to ensure that it is non-drying and non-irritating for sensitive skin types. Skin is left feeling tingly clean, balanced and refreshed.

My skin's reaction to facial washes is very hit and miss, but when I came across this BeBarefaced Anti Blemish Exfoliating Wash on Love Lula it sounded perfect for me. I've enjoyed using this facial wash in the evening to give my skin a good deep clean before I go to sleep. My skin is left feeling clean and very soft after use, but be careful not to rub too hard, as the exfoliating beads are pretty coarse and I found this can cause slight redness. I find that this facial wash is perfect for oily skin, due to it containing pore minimising Salicylic Acid and Tea Tree which is a great antiseptic. The only downside that I found to this product is that the bottle's pop up lid is a little messy to use, because of this I would recommend using a pump instead.

BeBarefaced Mud Mask - Review*



At BeBarefaced we’re committed to helping achieve barefaced confidence through the power of natural ingredients. While we may appear playful, we take our formulations very seriously. If we don't think it’s natural and doing some good then we don't add it in! All our products are made with precision and care to deliver a category-leading performance worthy of your trust. Our high performing formulas focus on carefully selected natural ingredients combined with antioxidants and essential oils, ensuring that our products are honest, natural and effective.

Our cult favourite mud mask is the ultimate skin clearing treatment. Dead Sea mud and kaolin clay work to remove impurities, oil and congestion. Willow bark a natural form of salicylic acid works to gently refine pores removing dead skin cells for velvety matt clear skin. Feel the mask at work boosting circulation and targeting blemishes. Naturally formulated with mint and eucalyptus for an invigorating, skin awakening experience.

I came across this BeBarefaced Mud Mask on Love Lula earlier this month, having not used a mud mask for a while this one really caught my eye. I was a little worried when I read that the mask may cause a slight redness to the skin, so I applied the mask a lot thinner than I usually do. Even though I thinly applied the mask, it still worked its magic on my skin. I found the mask dried evenly across my face and was easy to wash off in the shower. My skin felt super smooth and soft after use and I'm looking forward to using the mask again. I also love that the mask itself smells of sherbet sweets!

I chose this GLOSSWORKS Nail Polish in shade Tyrian to review from Love Lula this month as it matches a bridesmaid dress that I'll be wearing later this month. This nail polish is a really pretty colour and is a great shade for the Springtime. I find that the nail polish applies well but it does need two coats for full coverage. The polish itself removes easily and leaves my nails stain free which is great. I'm looking forward to wearing this nail polish with my bridesmaid dress as it matches so nicely and compliments my dress.

GLOSSWORKS Nail Polish in Shade Last Mango in Paris - Review*



Be the boss of gloss with GLOSSWORKS 9-free nail polishes! Professionally formulated to deliver a high-gloss coat with a gel-like texture that just won’t fade. GLOSSWORKS sets the new standard in nail friendly colour without nasty chemicals normally found in nail polish. GLOSSWORKS are not tested on animals and are suitable for vegans.

I was kindly sent an extra item to review for Love Lula this month. I ended up choosing the GLOSSWORKS Nail Polish in shade Last Mango in Paris from their new range of colours. I went for Last Mango in Paris as I thought it would be a great colour to use in the Summertime (when it actually arrives in the UK that is!). The nail polish itself applies well but you definitely need two coats for full coverage. I also find that this nail polish is really easy to remove, which isn't always the case with bright colours as they can get super messy. I'm happy to say that I'm in love with this very Summery colour and I can't wait to wear it against a Summer tan!

I love a good hand cream, so when I came across this Odylique Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie from LoveLula I thought I'd give it a go due to its name sounding amazing. Firstly, it smells lovely, very fresh and fruity which I love. The hand cream itself rubs in nicely and doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy afterwards which I really dislike with hand creams. All in all, my hands are left feeling very soft and all dry areas are fully moisturised after use.

BeBarefaced Anti Wrinkle Moisturiser - Review*



At BeBarefaced we’re committed to helping achieve barefaced confidence through the power of natural ingredients. While we may appear playful, we take our formulations very seriously. If we don't think it’s natural and doing some good then we don't add it in! All our products are made with precision and care to deliver a category-leading performance worthy of your trust. Our high performing formulas focus on carefully selected natural ingredients combined with antioxidants and essential oils, ensuring that our products are honest, natural and effective.

Our Anti-Wrinkle Moisturiser harnesses the power of vitamin A. Boasting many anti ageing benefits, it's a must for your skincare regime if anti ageing is on your priority list. This Moisturiser is a powerful anti ageing tool, effectively targeting the trickiest skin concerns; wrinkles, loss of volume, uneven skin tone and sun damaged skin. 1% Vitamin A complex fights free radical damage that causes ageing. Cells are turned over faster targeting not only wrinkles and fine lines but also spot prone skin. Skin plumping Hyaluronic Acid locks in water content giving skin a volume boost while reducing wrinkles. Collagen reduces the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines. And Antioxidants Vitamin C and E repairs sun damaged skin and protects against photo-ageing.

I've always steered clear of anti-aging creams, as the ones I've tried so far have been too thick for my oily based skin. I came across the BeBarefaced Anti Wrinkle Moisturiser on LoveLula and decided to give it a go as the description of it sounded great. The moisturiser rubs in really well and doesn't need much rubbing in at all. It does tend to leave my skin a little oily at the end of the day though. So because of this, I've only been using the cream in the evening before I go to sleep, which has helped. My skin is left feeling soft after use and I've noticed that the lines on my forehead have reduced slightly.

BeBarefaced 3 in 1 Eye Gel - Review*



At BeBarefaced we’re committed to helping achieve barefaced confidence through the power of natural ingredients. While we may appear playful, we take our formulations very seriously. If we don't think it’s natural and doing some good then we don't add it in! All our products are made with precision and care to deliver a category-leading performance worthy of your trust. Our high performing formulas focus on carefully selected natural ingredients combined with antioxidants and essential oils, ensuring that our products are honest, natural and effective.

BeBarefaced 3 in 1 Eye Gel combines three powerful ingredients Marine Collagen, Vitamin E and Argan Oil, to rehydrate and revitalise the eye area. Marine collagen reduces fine lines and restores volume lost from premature ageing. The delicate eye area is susceptible to sun damage and over time this starts to develop wrinkles and affect skin laxity. Antioxidants Vitamin E and Green Tea work to repair these effects of photoaged eyes, visibly lifting and brightening the eye contour, reducing dark circles and discolouration. Aloe vera hydrates, cools and minimises puffiness waking up tired eyes. And Argan oil locks in moisture targeting the ageing effects of dehydration.

I hadn't been getting on with my previous eye cream, so when I came across BeBarefaced's 3 in 1 Eye Gel on LoveLula I decided that is was time to try out a new one. I've had trouble with eye gels in the past where they've left my skin feeling very sticky, but this gel soaks into my skin really well which is great. The skin around my eyes is left feeling softer after use and I can see visible differences in the smoothness of my skin and the fine lines.

The bottle is also really easy to use when it comes to squeezing the product out.

Bondi Sands Self Tanning Lotion in Light / Medium & Resusable Self-Tan Application Mit - Review*




Inspired by Australia’s most well-known beach, and a desire to make the ultimate tan accessible to everyone, our salon quality formulas work to give you an even, naturally golden tan that hydrates and nourishes .your skin meaning you stay bronzed for longer. Owned and made in Australia.

Look like you’ve spent the day at the beach, all year round. A lotion that dries in seconds to reveal a rich, natural looking tan. Infused with Aloe Vera and Coconut, to ensure your tan lasts longer, Bondi Sands’ lightweight, Self-Tanning Lotion will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

The Bondi Sands Self Tanning Mitt enables you to apply an even streak-free, flawless tan every time. And what’s better is that you’ll never have stained hands again. Washable and reusable, perfect for Bondi Sands, Mists, Foams and Lotions.

I was kindly sent these two personally selected products from Annalisa to review for Bondi Sands. Firstly, I absolutely love the coconut infused scent of the Self Tanning Lotion in Light / Medium, it smells divine. So after prepping my skin and applying the fake tan with the very soft Application Mit, I immediately saw amazing results (as shown in the above photo). With the Application Mit being as soft as it is, this helps to apply the product evenly all over the body. The tan washes off very easily, meaning you're not left with any unwanted marks when you've finished applying. I'm super looking forward to using this product in the Summertime, especially because of its coconut scent!

A gentle Deodorant Spray that offers 24h protection.

When working long shifts I like to have a freshen up deodorant in my locker at work. I came across this Lavera Deodorant Spray with Wild Rose from LoveLula.com and thought it'd be great for this. The deodorant comes in a glass bottle which is a lot nicer than a plastic one, although the lid is plastic. I also really like the push-down spray button as it makes it a lot easier to apply the spray all over in a mist. I chose this particular deodorant as I love rose scented products, making this spray the perfect scent for me. Overall, the product does a good job of keeping me smelling fresh throughout my day whenever I need a little freshen up.

Not just a perfume, it adds shine, calms frizz and protects your hair from heat – all in one spritz. Citrus fragrance made from a blend of Grapefruit, May Chang & Jasmine.

I always forget to use heat protection on my hair, so when I came across the lovely looking Hairy Jayne Citrus Hair Perfume & Heat Protection on LoveLula.com, I thought it would make me remember! I really love that this product comes in a glass jar and not a plastic bottle. Unfortunately, I'm not too keen on the scent of this product but I love the fact that it does its job by protecting my hair from heat. It also works really well when my hair needs a little freshen up if there's no time to completely wash it. Overall, I'm definitely looking forward to trying the other scent of this product which might be more to my liking.

I was kindly sent this Prasada Moisturising Cream from ekaH to review for them after Helen had contacted me via email. I accepted to review the product as I loved the background of ekaH and the moisturising cream sounded great. Firstly, I absolutely love the scent of this cream it smells amazing. I'm not sure as to whether the cream is meant for your body or your face... Personally, it would be too heavy for me to use on my face due to my oily skin, but I've found it's great to use on my legs. Due to the cream being super thick and creamy my legs are left feeling really soft and hydrated after use. And the amazing scent lingers throughout the day which is an added bonus for me! When it comes to the packaging, I personally feel that a glass jar over the current plastic one would look a lot better and would finish off the classy look of the product. Overall, this is a great moisturiser that I can't stop smelling!

I'm a big fan of lip balms and the other day I actually fully used one up! When I found this Blueberry Lemon Crazy Rumors 100% Natural Lip Balm on LoveLula.com I definitely had to try it out as it sounded amazing. For some reason, I don't think I've had a blueberry muffin since going vegan and this lip balm smells exactly how I remember blueberry muffins to be, super sweet and moreish. Due to their extensive range of amazing scents, Crazy Rumors Lip Balms are probably the best vegan lip balms out there. My lips are left feeling really soft and super hydrated after use which is why I love using their lip balms throughout my day.

Fair Squared Lime Foot Fresher - Review*



Fair Squared offer cosmetic and personal hygiene products made from certified fairly traded and natural ingredients. They are an alternative trade organisation who have fair dealings with producers from some of the world`s poorest countries and were one of the first companies to be labelled with the well-known Fairtrade logo.

Soften and smooth hard skin with this zesty moisturiser for the feet. Fairtrade Argan Oil from Morocco. Vegan, Fairtrade and Natrue certified.

I came across this Fair Squared Lime Foot Fresher on LoveLula.com whilst on the hunt for a new foot cream to replace my old one. After having a shower, I really like to moisturise my feet to keep them hydrated and soft skinned. This foot cream soaks in really well and leaves my feet feeling super soft after use. The scent is light and refreshing which will be perfect for the Summer. For me, the cardboard box that the bottle comes in isn't really needed as it causes more waste. And I would prefer a pump for this bottle or a pot of the cream to make use a little easier. Overall, this is a great foot cream with great ingredients.

All three shades blend really well together and have a lovely shimmer to them. Unfortunately, the shade that I was looking forward to trying out most doesn't look the same as it does when on. For me, the burgundy shade is a lot browner than you think it would be and I was hoping for a redder shade. It's not a favourite coloured shade but it does create a great dark look when all three of the shades are blended together.

Lavera Natural Q10 Concealer 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. And the products do NOT contain Parabens, SLS’s, synthetic sunscreen actives, artificial dyes or fragrances.

The pleasant formula of the Natural Concealer with Q10 active ingredient complex and carefully selected, high-quality organic ingredients such as organic liquorice root extract and organic shea butter hides under-eye shadows and redness. This makes you look fresher and more awake, while sensitive skin is moisturised to restore its natural elasticity. To hide under-eye shadows, apply the concealer in the inner corner of your eyes and under the eyes. Then blend in with your fingertips.

I've been on the hunt recently to find the perfect shade of concealer for my skin tone. I came across this Lavera Natural Q10 Concealer in Ivory 01 on LoveLula.com and thought I'd try it out for the underneath of my eyes. Unfortunately, Ivory 01 isn't really my shade as it makes my skin look very orange and patchy. I also can't seem to blend the product into my skin very well, but this may just be me not being able to blend very well in the first place. This concealer definitely hides any under-eye shadows but it's a little tricky to get it to look natural due to it being the wrong shade for my skin. Here's hoping that I find the perfect match to my skin tone soon!
