Skin Blossom Toner Review!

IMG_2411

I have never really been a toner gal, more of a cleanse and moisturise type of gal with the odd bit of serum here and there. I have now however upgraded my evening skin care routine to include this toner and really reaped the benefits. Skin blossom is an organic, vegan and cruelty free brand so they pretty much hit the nail on the head with everything I’ve been looking for at the moment.

This toner has greatly improved the appearance of my skin. My skin tones looks even and my pores are less visible. Toners use to scare me because i just flash back to when i was 18 and used the harshest ones out there that stripped your skin and left it feeling tight. The however does non of that. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. It does surprise me however that no matter how much you cleanse your face it doesn’t quite get rid of the final bits of grime like a toner and that is another reason I’m sticking to this skincare routine.

Skin Blossom are a really affordable skincare line and so far the products i have used have been a dream. You can buy this toner for £5.95 from LoveLula and many other well known online beauty retailers such as Naturisimo and MyPure.

Review: Honeybee Gardens pressed mineral powder!

IMG_9831

Back when i was 18 i was a liquid foundation girl now hurling towards my 30’s and rather fast might i add I’m a converted powder girl.

I recently ran out of my rather conventional Maybelline fit me pressed powder, what a horrid product, it broke me out it dried up my face and i won’t even mention the rest. Trying to be good with the whole spending i was determined to use it up before i bought anything else.

Antipodes | Rejoice light facial day cream

I’ve wanted to buy something from the Antipodes range for such a long time. Known for their scientifically and clinically proven products I’m glad i could get my hands on this moisturiser. I love the packaging, simple yet eye catching. The aluminium tube is 100% biodegradable and not to forget the squeeziness of it is great for minimal wastage of the product!

John Masters Organics | Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk

IMG_8785

Sorry i have been MIA this last week, i’ve been quite poorly and it really took it’s toll but I’m glad to be back with another review!

I recently purchased a few things online. Things i’d pondered over for a while. I love the John Masters Organics range, i’ve tried quite a few of their products. Today i bring you the blood orange and vanilla body milk. An all over body lotion which is silky smooth and absorbs nicely into the skin. A small pump goes a long way and the smell is out of this world! The consistency is more on the runny side which i usually shy away from but with this lotion it works really well. It is extremely potent upon application however it does not linger around but instead gives a subtle scent to the skin. Wes says i smell like a drumstick, you know those lollies you used to eat as a child and to be honest id actually agree. It does smell like them, but with that hint of orange. Don’t let the sound of smelling like a lolly pop put you off, this really is a lovely body lotion.
