Review | Green People

Green People is a company that specializes in organic products and cosmetics. With over 100 certified products and award-winning ranges for all of the family, Green People are one of the leading companies in the market for suffers of skin conditions. The products are packed with over 90% natural organic ingredients to help protect, nourish and balance your skin. 

I have no skin conditions myself but looking after my skin with the most natural and nourishing products is important to me. Recently I have been testing out a number of samples from Green People and I have loved using them.

Firstly the Vita Min Fix 24- Hour Cream is free from all the nasty ingredients you would normally find in your every day moister which we are often warden against using. The Vita Min Fix is designed for normal to dry skin and also holds properties for anti-ageing. Having a combination of normal to dry skin with an oily t-zone, this moisturizer was not exactly specifically designed for my skin type. However I loved this cream, on my dry skin zones it left my skin feeling soft and well moisturized.  

Next I tested out the Help at Hand cream and it was very soothing for dry or irritated skin, that I often find I suffer with when the cold winter months set in. 

The products really do live up to the claims, they are luxury quality and are a delight to use. They are a little on the expensive side but are a great investments for your skin.

Review | Soap and Glory Foam Call

If you have followed my blog for a while you will know I love Soap and Glory products. Today I have a little review on their Shower and Bath Body Wash - Foam Call. 

Firstly this product has the usual pop art effect packing and easy-to-use pump bottle, which I love and makes it so simple to use in shower.

Usually with body washes I go the sweeter scent such a Sugar Crush, however this wash has a more frutigo fragrance to it. Once I started using the body wash and bubbling it up I started to smell hints of mint in it, which unfortunately for me I don't like.

Although this isn't one of my favourite S&G products (due to the minty scent) I would still recommend it. A 500ml bottle of this was lasts me months, which is great value for money. Foam Wash cleansed my skin well but also let if feeling moisturised and smooth as well. 

Do you prefer a sweet or fruity scent when it comes to body wash?

Review | Benefit Hoola Bronzer

Benefit's Hoola Bronzer has been one raved about product in the beauty blogging world. I decided to purchase it and find out why it was so hyped about.

This bronzer is completely matte with no sign of shimmer anywhere. I actually prefer matte bronzer for daytime wear as they leave a much more natural finish. It has a slight orange undertone, which you have to be a little careful with, but is pretty much the standard brown bronzer shade.

It comes with a small contour brush, which is a nice idea and added extra but I still prefer to use my real techniques contour brush to apply this product.  I really like how this product applies it's very light yet buildable so whether you want a natural looking contour or something darker this product can achieve both looks.  

Overall, it's a great bronzer for both day and night time looks, however if it’s worth the massive hype it has received, I am not to so sure.

Review | Lush So White Bath Bomb

Today I am going to be reviewing the So White Bath Bomb from Lush which was part of their christmas collection, so you may have to wait a few more months until you can get your hands on it again.

The scent of this bomb is fresh and crisp, much like green apples, which is great for waking you up. So if you have baths in the morning, this is the one for you.

This bath bomb has a pink inner section  which I was not expecting. The pink centre gave my bath a pretty pale pink hint to it, but without being too overpowering.

The smell is what made this bath bomb stand out. I have used a lot of bath products but I have never used a bath bomb with a scent so spring like and fresh as So White. I feel like this bath bomb is wasted being in the christmas range, as I think it should be moved to be launched in Spring as it would be much more suitable. 

What I loved most about So White is that, it looks so plain and boring compared to most of the more outrageous bath bombs you see in Lush stores. However it smelt great and also didn't make my bath water turn into an lively or vibrant colour. 

I think if you are looking for a fun or exciting bath bomb with lots of colour and frizz, Lush has much better bath products to ofter. However I think it's a great bath bomb if you are looking for a change or something new as So White it a pretty individual product.

Where have I been? / Update

It’s been exactly 5 months (whoa) since the last time I posted on this blog, which is the longest time I’ve ever gone without any sort of update. Recently my life has been a whirlwind of movement and change.

Firstly, I have been buying a flat, which is just the most exciting yet terrifying thing I have done in all of my 20 years! I cannot wait to have my own space and independence, yet the thought of paying out on a mortgage and bills is rather daunting.

As I am moving to a different area, I am also starting a new job, which again is big change but I am looking forward to the new challenges it will bring.
Being away from the blogging, beauty and fashion world for a few months it has given me a chance to test out a number of products that I have had knocking around for a while so keep an eye out for new review, hauls and many more posts.

Book Review | Amy, My Daughter

I adored Amy Winehouse, her music, her style and her overall individuality which I think even to this day no-one can replicate. I was incredibly saddened when I heard the news she passed away. 

Amy, My Daughter is a heartfelt, honest but overall an incredibly sad book. Whilst I knew the outcome the impending doom was obvious from the first few pages, and I am not sure there was ever another outcome for Amy.

I think it was brave of Mitch Winehouse to write such an honest book detailing Amy and more so her families struggle with her addictive personality. As you read you can't help but feel for those close to her because they were so helpless. 

As someone who has never experienced addition or had anyone close to me struggle it really is eye opening and this book I'm sure will give solace many people who find themselves in similar situations. Amy's passing & indeed anyone's needless death at the age of 27 in nothing short of tragic . Amy Winehouse will always be regarded by me as one of British music's most talented & innovative Stars. 

All the proceeds are donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation

Review | Thierry Mugler Alien

Whether you love it or hate it, there is no denying that Alien by Thierry Mugler is a distinctive and instantly recognisable fragrance.  Alien perfume has such a unique scent however, that there’s very little on the high street that even comes close.

The style of this bottle completely portrays its contents. A dark precious stone mined from another world with sharp claws protecting its mysterious deep purple hue contents.  
This scent is extremely hard to describe as this fragrance smells different on each individual person. However the scent is strong and bold, with hints of white amber. Alien gives off a rather musky scent for a female perfume, but that gives off a dark, sexy and mystical smell. 
Alien has great staying power, the scent stays strong on your skin and clothes all day long with no more. This has been my go to perfume for the last few months. 
Have you tried this perfume and what are your thoughts?
