Yes Cleanse Intimate Rose Wash - Review*

The idea that started The Yes Yes Company Ltd in 2003 arose between two friends, Susi Lennox and Sarah Brooks. Susi and Sarah's experience of working in the Drug Safety divisions of major pharmaceutical companies meant they were very aware of the health risks associated with certain synthetic, chemical ingredients. They set themselves the challenge of designing a range of intimacy products that would be completely benign, have no side effects, free of all known skin irritants and be highly effective.

YES CLEANSE - a sensitively formulated organic intimate wash, designed to respect the delicate vaginal ecology, with a refreshing and effective cleansing action. Hypoallergenic Guaranteed Pure and Natural Organic plant actives, Calendula and Aloe Vera. YES CLEANSE has been carefully pH matched to complement and protect the intimate environment. Washes away odour-causing bacteria without irritation. A Propellant free foaming Luxurious feminine washes you can use with confidence and safety day after day. YES Cleanse Rose contains exquisite Organic Rosa Damascena.

I've been using the Yes Cleanse Intimate Rose Wash from Love Lula for a couple of weeks now. I love that the product is a foam wash, as I feel it gives a more of a gentle wash. The wash itself has a lovely delicate scent of roses which I really like. I find that the pump on the bottle is really easy to use in the shower, as there's no need to tip the bottle upside down! This is overall a good product that does exactly what it's meant to do.

Fair Squared Coconut Shower Gel & Body Lotion - 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.

An everyday shower gel formulated with Olive oil to gently cleanse and moisturise the skin. And a moisturising body lotion with coconut oil, olive oil and grape seed oil which is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids to soothe, protect and rejuvenate the skin. Coconut oil is rich in natural vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants which soothe and rejuvenate the skin (anti-ageing). Vegan, Fairtrade and Natrue certified Fairtrade Coconut Oil from Sri Lanka and Fairtrade Palestinian Olive Oil No parabens, phthalates, SLS or PEGs.

Here I have the Fair Squared Coconut Shower Gel and Body Lotion from Love Lula. I've always been a massive fan of coconut-scented products, but I do tend to find it a bit of a hit or miss kind of scent, especially when it comes to body products. Unfortunately, the coconut scent doesn't smell as good as I had hoped for with these two Fair Squared products. On the upside, the body lotion is really easy to rub in and does soak in well, leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturised. Unfortunately, I did find that I needed to use a lot of the shower gel to get a full-body wash, which isn't ideal for me. Overall, these products would be great for someone who prefers lightly scented products.

JOIK Organic All Clear Facial Soap for Normal / Oily Skin - Review*

JOIK is a natural luxury. All the goodness from nature combined with luxurious emotions of scent and colour. Using nature to our best advantage, but also caring for nature. JOIK is Northern, pure and minimal style. All products are hand made in Estonia in small batches using only the finest ingredients to ensure high quality and ultimate pampering. All products are formulated to be skin-friendly, free of parabens, petrochemicals, sulphates, other harmful ingredients and are not tested on animals.

Luxurious facial soap for normal and oily skin gently dissolves impurities and removes make-up. The soap is rich in organic oils such as babassu oil, olive oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, neem oil and castor oil that all help to make the cleansing bar skin-friendly and gentle, yet effective and especially suitable for oily and combination skin. Green clay and essential oils of tea tree and lemongrass help to balance the skin. All JOIK Organic soaps are handmade in a traditional cold-process method and do not contain palm oil.

I've been using the Joik Organic All Clear Facial Soap for Normal / Oily Skin from Love Lula for around a week now. The soap itself has a very fresh scent to it and it foams up really well. I find the soap suitable for both day and night usage as it doesn't dry out my skin. After using the soap, my face feels clean and fresh.

No more broken, blunt or scratchy eye pencils! This cute sharpener will give your pencils perfect point for flawless application. The biodegradable Eco Sharpener sharpens pencils with precision and care for flawless application. The blade is also recyclable made from the highest quality carbon steel.

This Ere Perez Eco Pencil Sharpener from Love Lula had really good potential, but unfortunately, not all of my pencils fitted in it. Due to this, I wasn't able to sharpen said pencils at all. The sharpener is best suited for smaller pencils rather than large chunky ones. On the plus side, this sharpener is biodegradable and the blade is recyclable, which is great!
