Review: Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Skin Lotion

image

This week my review is on my favourite skin lotion, from Holland and Barratts at £7.49

I definitely think the price is reasonable because you get 200ml in the tube which will last for ages. A little goes a long way, it’s really absorbed into the skin and doesn’t leave your hands feeling sticky or a weird layer over your skin like other lotions do. It’s best in my opinion to use this lotion after a bath or shower because it is really moisturising and always leaves my skin super soft.

The lotion comes out of the tube with a smooth consistency and white colour. The aroma is sweet, light and lasts a while so you may get compliments throughout the day 🙂

Also I really love the shape of the bottle because it doesn’t take up a lot of space and the lid is very secure so you can carry it around without the worry of it leaking.

What’s your favourite lotion?

Review: Mineral Foundation

image

This was my first ever powder foundation that I brought from PHB Ethical Beauty. The cost of it was £18.95, the colour is cinnamon and they have a range of colours to suit most skin types but mainly paler tones.

I would really recommend checking out their website http://www.phbethicalbeauty.co.uk/natural-organic-fairtrade-vegan-paraben-free-cruelty-free-make-up/mineral-powders-face/Mineral-Foundation and having a good read because they have lots of information about the ingredients used in their products and also what they don’t use!

Even though I don’t wear makeup every single day I still want the best for my skin when I am wearing foundation. I mostly use the mineral foundation over my concealer around my eyes in attempt to cover up the dark circles and it works really well, only on special occasions do I apply it to my entire face to get that smooth full coverage.

The foundation is so light in terms of texture and blends in with my skin tone giving me a really natural appearance.

All you have to do is twist and gently shake to release the foundation onto the lid.

You choose how much you want to be released from the container which is super cute and small making it easy to carry around in your bag.

I really love that the bottom of it is see through so you get to see the exact colour, what it looks like and how much you have left.

*The only negative which really applies to all loose powders is that it can be a bit messy and fall onto your clothes so my advise is to do your makeup before getting dressed or wear a robe 🙂

Review: Truly Natural Lipstick

image

I’ve got another review for this week which is my favourite and only lipstick, to be completely honest I am not a massive fan of coloured lip products however this lipstick is one of a few exceptions.

This lipstick is from the brand Honeybee Gardens which to my knowledge is sold in America and available to the UK on their online website https://honeybeegardens.com they have got a great range of natural beauty products and the prices are very affordable. Items such as soap, aftershave and eye shadow which are all kind to the skin.

This lipstick colour is called desire  and they have so many others to choose from costing only $12.99 which is roughly £8.86

The packaging is a simple silver colour with the logo print of a bee on the lid, when applying the lipstick to your lips it is extremely smooth and has a long lasting gloss look that isn’t overly shiny. I also find it really moisturising which is good because it does not make my lips dry.

image

It is quite a classic colour but not too red so it can be worn casually and I feel like it will look good with all skin tones because the colour isn’t too strong, it is like a red colour with pink tones 🙂
