Melvita is a brand i'm sure all you are pretty familiar with, what with them being one of the main leaders in the natural and organic beauty world. They have recently announced that they are adding a few more deodorants to their collection. They currently have two deodorants in their range (Purifying Roll On Deodorant and Men's Roll On Deodorant) but this January 2014 will see the introduction of two more roll on deodorants to the line. It will be their new Natural Deodorants Collection!
Both deodorants will be aluminium free and will work to prevent both odour and dampness! The two deodorants to be added to the collection will be:
24 Hour Effectiveness Deodorant - This is formulated with sage oil, triethyl citrate, acyl lactylate, Vitamin E and essential oils including Peppermint, thyme thymol and sandalwood to combat body odour and leave a lovely fragrance. The fragrance will be a floral blend of water lily, lily of the valley, rose, aloe and apricot!
Also natural mineral silica is added to help absorb sweat and reduce dampness.
Sensitive Skin Deodorant - This deodorants formula is a blend of usnea lichen, aloe vera, vitamin E and the all important damp busting absorbent silica! The scent of this one sounds even nicer, a sweet blend of freesia, rose, violet, vanilla and raspberry! Floral and fruity!
Both formulas are designed not just to tackle both the issues of smell and dampness but also the ingredients are chosen to be non-comedogenic to keep your under arms fresh, unblocked and free to breathe. That will equal happy under arms and happy skin, helping avoid bacteria build up and dark pigmentation.
Emu Balm - £20 Emu Oil - £10
Hmm, an interesting news today. Recently new 100% Natural skincare brand Lorem has launched. Lorem's brand launch comes with two products, Emu Balm and Emu Oil.
Yeah, genuinely this is oil from Emus, SO, obviously, these products are NOT VEGAN! Juuust to avoid any misunderstandings with this one.
So apparently in Australia Emu oil has a long long long history waaay back to the first Aboriginals who used it as a natural sunscreen and moisturiser. It's meant to be amazing stuff. I did a little digging and there are a lot of brands that use Emu oil as a product or in products so there you go.
These products are 100% natural (non vegan), bacterio-static (anti-bacterial) and non-comedogenic.
It can be used not just as moisturisers but as treatment for rashes, inflamed skin, redness and itchiness. You can use it to treat many skin conditions including eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and more. Plus it can be used on the scalp and for hair too.
It is also meant to be super duper especial for aching joints and muscles.
The Emu Oil formula is blended with coconut oil and Essential oils including Arnica, Wintergreen, Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Sweet Marjoram, Lavender, Clary Sage and Juniper. Something tells me this is a fragrant balm and oil!
You can get these from the brand's website Loremcare and they are available now.
Yes that's right, I'm only just posting about this box and it is very nearly not october any more. But still! better late than never they say right? Agreed!
Seeing as it is so very very late and we have all seen lots of other people's lovely posts on this months box I'll keep it brief.
In this months box we have:
LAVERA BEAUTY BALM - Firstly, I adore Lavera, they make my favourite foundation ever and secondly I am really really into bb creams now. i've mentioned before how much I love the REN bb cream so it will be interesting to see how this one compares! Exciting!
SANTAVERDE ALOE VERA CREAM- Interesting, very interesting. i've used Santaverde products before and while liking them never made them a must have or part of my routine. Perhaps this will be the one that wins me over.
MENDILL- As an ex face wipe user this both excites me and makes me nervous. I used wipes all the time until i really read up on them. Now I know wipes are like marmite, love them or hate them but they can be really handy just for a quick once over or if you're travelling. Sadly i got the lavender scent, dang it.
DR HAUSCHKA MELISSA DAY CREAM - Another interesting one as I'm a fan of the ol' Dr H! I like how this cream is designed for winter protection as well as summer skin healing. It's a unique combo that's piqued my interest!
Overall, I like this box, but I am glad it had a decent sized Lavera product as otherwise with just the sachets I think I would have felt a bit short changed!
Nourish Revital-Eyes Kale Biometric Anti-Aging Eye Cream - £29.50 10ml
Don't you just love it when one of your favourite brands launches a new product?! Well, it's exciting to spread the word that Nourish have released their new product: Revital-Eyes Kale Biometric Anti-Aging Eye Cream.
Ok firstly, I'm seriously into eye creams of late and secondly I adore kale, I eat it non stop, its just so tasty and good for you. So kale in beauty care...errm yes please! Oh and thirdly, you have got to love a product with a good ol' bit of word play in its name eh?!
So a little info about this sweet and very stylish looking product. Nourish have formulated this eye cream with oil based Kale extract, Yeast and Tonka Bean extracts and anti-oxidants, vitamins B and E plus peptides and enzymes to help with dark circles, puffiness, redness and even crows feet. The eye cream is designed to be brightening and anti-aging, boosting the skins natural elastin, as well as to protect and repair the eye area.
Another power ingredient that is packed into this eye cream is tetra-peptide 3. Tetra-peptide 3 (an amino acid that is said to boost collagen in the skin) is apparently clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just one month (28 days) so you can see why this is targeting those crows feet! Aditionally this cream also contains bio-peptides Chronoline and Drieline which help treat and prevent internal cellular metabolism mechanisms which can cause premature ageing!
It is also 79% Organic!
And there is so much more to this cream. You can read in-depth about the wonders of this on the Being Content blog!
Nourish Revital-Eyes Kale Biometric Anti-Aging Eye Cream is available exclusively at Being Content throughout october until it launches nationwide on 1st November 2013!
I have a cold.
No matter how hard or for how long i fought it, it crept up on me. Now we all know how a cold can make you feel. Personally I feel like i want to climb into bed and hide under the covers with a box of tissues, watching old disney movies and noshing on endless plates of fish and chip shop chips (yeah i know it's a weird craving, but hey) Unfortunately life doesn't really let you do that and you have to muscle on and face the day and try and combat everything a cold can throw at you.
So as my cold has progressed so have my techniques at managing it. I thought it would be interesting to share with you my little go-tos, hints, tips, favourite products etc that really help make having a cold that little bit easier to live with.
Today I'll focus on the little beauty bits and then in the following posts i'll whitter on about nutritional and miscellaneous bits if you are interested in those too.
So...beauty for the beast of a cold.
