At the end of last month I was lucky enough to be invited to the Biome Eco Store at Hawthorne to check out their DIY Naked Beauty initiative. A bit of background about Biome – they’re an eco and environmentally conscious brand who seek to do no harm to animals or people through any of their business practices. And they follow through on their ethical stance recently removing all products with palm oil from all stores and online in a bid to protect the orangutans meaning they can no longer sell any liquid foundations or mascaras as well as dozens of other product lines. The brand also seeks to reduce, reuse and recycle selling products with minimal plastic packaging and naked, glass or paper packaging where possible. Which leads us to the advent of the DIY skincare range.
Disclaimer: I’m going to get real graphic in this post, I want to give a honest review and when it comes to periods and menstrual cups the only way to be honest is to get very TMI. So if you’re squeamish, know me personally and don’t want to read about my vagina or are male I’d recommend clicking away now. Ok so now that’s sorted let’s get to it.
Mother’s Day is one of the hardest gift giving days to buy for, what do you get the person who gave you life? Lush has some ideas this year and they’re all absolutely lovely and I was sent the range to try. I’ve been around for a few Lush collections in my time (just scroll through the blog and see how many) and this one has been, in my opinion, the best overall. There isn’t one product here I didn’t love the smell of and all the bath bombs, bars and solid scrubs are gorgeously moulded and coloured.
Skincare favourite Weleda has released a new range of tinted lip balms and sent me a couple to try! They are lovely and nourishing, perfect coming into the cooler months.
Easter is just around the corner and I’m just a bit excited. A whole weekend devoted to chocolate? Yes please (yes, I went to Catholic school and know it’s not just that but in this day and age that’s what it’s kind of fizzled down to.) The lovely humans at Lush sent me a box filled with their Easter range which smelt like heaven and I can’t wait to use. But first I thought I’d tell you all my first thoughts about the range.
