Benecos Angled Brush Colour Edition - 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!

Angled brush made from high-quality synthetic fibres, with FSC certified handle and recyclable aluminium.

This Benecos Angled Brush from Love Lula is a must-have when it comes to liquid eyeliner. I have a pot of liquid eyeliner that doesn't come with a brush, so I thought this would be a great tool to use to apply it. The brush is really easy to use as it's a lot easier to apply the eyeliner with.

Teeth Whitening KIKI Health Activated Charcoal Powder - Review*

IKI believes in adding only the purest of ingredients with the highest potency available. All ingredients are meticulously chosen and ethically processed to preserve and maximise the beneficial and powerful elements, ensuring unsurpassed bioavailability. KIKI does not compromise their products with inexpensive fillers and synthetics. KIKI was born out of a desire to promote optimum health and well-being and is fast becoming one of the leading manufacturers of natural plant-based health products in the UK.

KIKI’s Activated Charcoal is a finely reduced powder (5-10 microns), which presents a huge surface area for the absorption of unwanted substances. So when taken orally or used on teeth or skin it works like a sponge to soak up contaminants. Activated charcoal contributes to reducing excessive flatulence after eating. KIKI ‘s Activated Charcoal is produced from sustainable coconuts which have been highly purified with steam to remove any contaminants for use as a pharmaceutically active ingredient.

I'm really glad that I came across the Teeth Whitening KIKI Health Activated Charcoal Powder on Love Lula, as it's made my smile a lot brighter. I've never used anything like this before so I did find the process a little messy at first. Just after one use, I had honestly already noticed an immediate change in the colour of my teeth! I try to use the powder every other day or night to help keep my smile brighter and stain free.

Ayumi is a natural skincare brand, inspired by the ancient principles of Ayurveda. A holistic brand, lovingly made in the UK, Ayumi is certified as both vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Dating back approximately 5000 years, Ayurveda is an Indian system of health and wellbeing with the aim of reaching a state of content. Now, however, it is more difficult to maintain a balance in our new, urban environment. This is what Ayumi stands for - maintaining balance in our new surroundings. Ayumi is committed to making natural and mindful living available to everyone, bringing back the natural environment even to the busiest of cities. Bursting with aromatic essential oils, organic extracts and Ayurvedic ingredients, Ayumi is designed to balance the skin and the mind.

Blending Neem, Tea Tree and Lemongrass oil, our Neem soap is good for drawing out impurities, keeping the skin clean with antibacterials and leaving it with a moisturising touch. An effective way of getting your skin’s radiance back, is by using a cleanser with natural antibacterial abilities, that will remove the oil but not drain your skin of its moisture. Using a glycerine base, our Neem soap is a great addition to your bathroom, using Neem, Tea Tree and Lemongrass to clean and refresh the skin.

The Ayumi Neem & Tea Tree Soap from Love Lula had been on my wish list for awhile so I decided it was time to try it out. I've loved using soap bars to wash my face with over the past year or so. And I've really enjoyed using this one as it's so gentle yet effective on my skin. It brightens up my skin after use and also leaves it feeling soft.

Natura Siberica Gentle Face Peeling - Review*

Made with adaptogenic herbs and plants, this range of face, hair and body care was born in Siberia.

Our gentle face peel reinforces the skins protective functions, making it smooth and supple. Aralia Mandshurica protects skin from external factors while Meadowsweet restores skin’s natural regenerative functions. AHA-acids gently exfoliate skin while Vitamin F facilitates cell renewal, making skin firmer and more elastic.

When I choose the Natura Siberica Gentle Face Peeling to review from Love Lula I was expecting it to be a peeling mask, hence the name. The product wasn't what I thought it would be, but I'm kind of glad about this due to it being a really nice face scrub. The product gives the skin on my face a really good scrub and leaves it feeling soft after use. The product itself also smells really fresh which is an added bonus.
