Baby H has such lovely soft, squishy, smooth, nice smelling skin. He has had some moments though, like infected eczema on his scalp which required two courses of antibiotics to get rid of…it’s actually very upsetting to see your child with a skin condition of any sort, because it’s just usually very uncomfortable for them and of course it doesn’t look nice. So what do you get…lots of people commenting on the rash, or whatever […]
At first it is a little easy to not give Acorelle a second glance; this scent in simple packaging (box and bottle) doesn’t look like anything particularly special, but with further investigation reveals a few interesting facts about the brand! Acorelle hails from France and is the one of the world’s first certified organic fragrances. Each perfume (and the range is quite large) contains ‘natural’ raw ingredients, that is, they avoid many of the synthetic […]
I was sent a selection of products from a French brand, terre d’Oc which is certified organic, non-comogenic and is formulated with a number of oils and butters. The idea is that the products nourish as well as looking pretty! I have 3 products here, Eye Shadow Duo which has a cream texture in Rose and Prune Takaro, Eye Kohl in 701 Prune Kerala and Gloss Sublime Lip Gloss in Peach. Want a closer look?
My skin hasn’t been the best behaved lately so I’ve been testing various simple, preferably organic moisturisers to see which would help my skin out without being too heavy. Pai is a British skincare brand, which specialises in organic skincare for sensitive skin. It actually took me a while to get to the right cream! I tried their macadamia & rose which was nice but too strongly scented for me, then they sent me the […]
I am all for supplements (I have been testing various ones these last 8 months) on the condition that they don’t: A. Send me funny (I am quite sensitive to medicine and herbal supplements, I give hives easily!) B. Don’t taste really bad and C. Are simple to use. If you expect me to pop 8 pills a day, then forget it. I was interested to try this Melvita 20 day Skin Blemishes treatment because […]
I was sent a range of skincare called Les Fleurs De Bach to try a few months ago and boy, did it arrive at a good time…Les Fleurs De Bach’s skincare range is a range to help you relax and de-stress. It was just what I needed. At the heart of all Les Fleurs de Bach Anti-Stress Skincare products is a subtle, delicious and natural fragrance based on essential oils: opening Top notes of Bergamot […]
There are so many little Eco friendly brands popping up in the UK and so far I have had positive experiences with most of them. Evolve Beauty has a range of skincare, bodycare and haircare products that are organic (certified by Ecocert) and come in 100% recyclable packaging. I like how the range looks; it has a sort of softness to it but looks smart at the same time, and I also like how simple […]
Regular readers will know I have a sensitive scalp and itches and flakes easily; as a result I avoid shampoos with SLS and Parabens whenever possible because they make my situation worse. Check out some other shampoos I recommend… However, just because a shampoo is SLS free, it does’t mean it always suits my hair. Another thing that you have to accept with SLS free shampoos is that your hair may feel a lot rougher […]
