Those Bambi Salon One Week Vegan Cluster 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 the lash extension queen, over at the Hartley home salon, she loves creating the perfect lashes for her clients to wake up to every, single morning. You're welcomed to get cosy in the beauty chair upon the super soft blankets whilst you have your treatment done. With world-leading quality lash extensions and five different curl types as well as different thickness' and colours to choose from, you know Danielle can find the perfect style for you. 

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. On my last appointment, Danielle took some photos of my lovely looking lashes which made me think about writing a review on them and about the great Bambi Salon.

One Week Clusters Lashes £25

The lashes used are from Nouveau Lashes who are a proud cruelty-free company. Pre-made clusters of five hairs each are applied along your lash line to give a fuller lash effect in half an hour. They need to be removed after one week of wear, either in the salon or with a home removal kit. Perfect for special occasions and weekends away. If you've never had the treatment before you'll need a quick patch test twenty-four hours before your treatment.

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 only wanted my false lashes for that weekend, so I went for the One Week Cluster 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 just under a full week. Danielle is great at applying all different types of lashes and I'm always happy with the outcome that she's achieved for me!

I'm always on the hunt for new products to try that claim to promote scar healing or help with stretch marks. I've now accepted that scars and stretch marks are normal and that everyone has them, but I do like to keep mine extra hydrated than the rest of my skin so that they stay super soft. I simply love the look of the new range that PBH Ethical Beauty has brought out and the glass packaging is amazing. You can buy the new range from which is where I came across it. This Skin Perfector Bio-Gel from PHB Ethical Beauty smells lovely and I love using it on my body as it sinks in quickly. The only problem I have is that it seems to leave my facial skin feeling a little heavy so I prefer to use it in the evenings before I go to sleep rather than in the mornings. This product is great at leaving my skin feel super soft, making it the perfect product to keep my scars and stretch marks hydrated!

Fair Squared Intimate Peeling Scrub, Washing Lotion & Deodorant Cream - 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.

Apricot Peeling Intimate

This gentle scrub is an important preparatory step before shaving the intimate area as it helps to open the pores and removes dead skin cells which can help prevent ingrowing hairs and painful razor nicks. A key ingredient in the Fair Squared Intimate Peeling is Fairtrade apricot kernel oil, from Pakistan, which helps to soothe and hydrate the skin.

Apricot Wash Lotion Intimate

A mild and gentle intimate wash, suitable for even the most sensitive skin. 

Apricot Deodorant Cream Intimate

Developed for women of all ages this rich cream deodorises and nourishes the sensitive skin in the genital area leaving it feeling fresh and smooth. It contains Fairtrade apricot kernel oil and is formulated to match the natural pH value of the intimate area. Suitable for daily use.

I wanted to pamper myself a little bit so I decided to try out Fair Squared's lovely looking Intimate set from Firstly, I love the colour scheme and the design of the packaging, it's so cute! All three products have different bottle tops to one another. My favourites are the Washing Lotion (screw lid) and the Deodorant Cream (small pump) as they're easier and less messy to use than the Scrub (Peeling) bottle which has a push-down and pop-up lid. I personally don't see the need for both the Scrub and the Washing Lotion, as they're both very similar to one another. For me, I prefer the scrub to the shower gel as it gives a nice gentle exfoliation to the skin as well as cleaning the area. All three products smell really nice and fresh which is great if you're feeling a little self-conscious. I also love that all of these products are Fairtrade.
