Organically Epic Charcoal Infused Peppermint Vegan Dental Floss - Review*




Organically Epic is a multi-award-winning business, launched in 2015, founded and owned by Jayne Clark-Denyer and Karon Robertson (a Daughter and Mother duo). Organic and Natural Dental has always been a love and passion of Jayne's so it was only natural that Organically Epic would launch their natural dental collection. All of our products are sustainably made and ethically sourced. Approved under PETA'S beauty without bunnies campaign, Vegan, Biodegradable, Recyclable and our toothbrushes are made of mature bamboo that is Panda Friendly.

Charcoal infused peppermint vegan dental floss is a must for any dental routine. The charcoal will help brighten and lift stains from between your teeth whilst the peppermint essential oil will help freshen breath. With 30 metres of floss, this sustainable gum lover will last you an average of 3 months if you use it once a day. Dentists recommend using floss as part of your regular dental routine, flossing every evening to prevent bad breath, sore bleeding gums and gingivitis. How to dispose of your floss and packaging The floss will need to go in your general recycling. It is not biodegradable but it is a much better alternative to conventional floss. The glass tube and aluminium can be recycled but, feel free to purchase our floss refills and reuse the glass and aluminium packaging The cardboard kraft packaging can be recycled or put in your compost for breakdown.

Since getting my braces off a few weeks ago, I've wanted to get back into flossing as I couldn't really achieve it with my train track braces on. I came across the Organically Epic Charcoal Infused Peppermint Vegan Dental Floss on Love Lula and thought it looked great due to its low waste. The floss is presented in a glass jar which I think is great, as you can refill it again and again. I found the floss easy to use, just like any other floss really. Although, this floss is slightly different to your usual floss, as it tastes of peppermint which I find very refreshing.

Benecos Natural Nail Polish in Vintage Red - Review*





For a long time, natural cosmetics had a bland, generic look, limited product choices and, generally, high prices. However, this is no longer the case because at Benecos we offer bright, modern, cruelty-free products all at affordable prices. Our products are natural and organic and our make-up range is filled with a variety of colours, so say goodbye to dull and boring and hello to the vibrant and dynamic world of Benecos colour cosmetics!

Instant glam for any occasion, our Nail Polish in Vintage Red is the perfect classic shade. No base coat is needed with Benecos Nail Varnish but for even longer-lasting chip-free nails finish with a coat of our Nail Polish in Crystal. Free from toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, phthalates, parabens, silicones, TPHP and colophony.

I love the Benecos Nail Polish brushes as they're flatter than most brushes I've used before, meaning you can coat your nail with polish almost in one go. This Benecos Natural Nail Polish in Vintage Red from Love Lula is a classic pink-red. I personally find this shade needs two coats to get full coverage. The nail polish removes well without staining my nails too much, which is always a hassle with darker shades!

Benecos Natural Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bloody Berry - Review*




For a long time, natural cosmetics had a bland, generic look, limited product choices and, generally, high prices. However, this is no longer the case because at Benecos we offer bright, modern, cruelty-free products all at affordable prices. Our products are natural and organic and our makeup range is filled with a variety of colours, so say goodbye to dull and boring and hello to the vibrant and dynamic world of Benecos colour cosmetics!

A bold matte lipstick with a lightweight, velvety texture and non-drying formula of this lipstick has been enriched with castor oil to nourish and hydrate the lips.

I absolutely love the shade of this Benecos Natural Matte Liquid Lipstick from Love Lula. I'm not a big fan of matte liquid lipsticks as I don't like the overly dry feeling on my lips, but Blood Berry seems to be more moisturising than other liquid lipsticks that I've tried in the past. It also goes great with a clear lip balm underneath it for extra moisture. I find this shade lasts a good amount of time before needing to apply it again. It's also very easy to remove and doesn't stain anything, considering how dark the shade is!

Organyc Intimate Wash with Chamomile - Review*


Intimate Wash with Chamomile contains a blend of gentle and organic natural ingredients which include extracts of Calendula, Cornflower and Aloe Vera to gently cleanse, soothe and protect your intimate area. Suitable for sensitive skin. No alcohol, no chlorine, no parabens and no SLS.

I like using products that are specially made for certain areas and nowhere else. So when I came across the Organyc Intimate Wash with Chamomile from Love Lula I was looking forward to trying it out. Firstly, the bottle is a great size and shape to keep in my shower and the pump is an added bonus. The gel does smell of Chamomile which I'm not too keen on, but luckily it isn't too overpowering. I personally find that two pumps of the wash are the perfect amount per wash for me, meaning this 250ml bottle will last me a good few months. Overall, the gel foams up nicely giving me a gentle and refreshing clean all over.
