While browsing through my twitter the other day I realised that I had been nominated for the Liebster award by the beautiful Amy Chessman from the wonderful blog Disguised By Zebras. Amy's blog is a fascinating blend of beauty, food, travel and lifestyle, i'd recommend you check it out if you haven't already! Amy herself did a great post for her Liebster Award and I'm so thrilled to be nominated by her for it. Thank you very much Amy, wish i'd seen it earlier!

Liebster Award!

Can you believe that we are only a few weeks away from it being 2014? Nope me neither, but new product launches are a sure sign of the new year to come. And that's where REN steps in.

Undoubtedly one of the leading brands in fabulous organic and natural skincare in the UK, REN have announced that they are launching yet more must-try items to their already hugely impressive range of skincare!

2014 shall see REN introduce not one, not two but three new products that make the beginnings of their spanking new V-Cense collection. These three products are as follows:

A new brand has just launched called So Pure! 

So Pure is created with predominantly natural ingredients including it's signaure ingredient, Prickly Pear Seed Oil. ( I love when a brand has a signature ingredient, like KORA with Noni) The formulas will be artificial additive free and free from the usual suspects including including parabens, phenoxyethanol, fillers, silicones,  some glycols,  colours, phthalates, PEGS, TEA, DEA and synthetic fragrances.

To those who are true Essential Care fans this may not be new, but to those like me who are still exploring the brand this will come as some great new news! 

The creators of Essential Care have launched a new brand of skincare called Odylique by Essential Care. 

As mentioned on their site, 'Odyl' means - force/power of nature, which lends it's meaning to the name as they use natural ingredients. 

Apparently Odylique is designed as a luxury, or eco-luxe as they call it, affordable line of skincare aimed at sensitive skin. The products are formulated as organic and 100% natural, certified with the Soil Association seal of approval.
The formulations of all the products also promise to be hypoallergenic and free from common allergen tree nut oils, soy, wheat or dairy, as well as parabens, petrochemical and sulphates!


There's a whole range of products within this brand from cleansers and serums to milks, tonics and much more. Above are just some imagery examples I have from the website, the design i think is so chic and clean looking, i'm quite impressed! (i love good packaging i do!)

I've taken a look at the Essential Care site and as well as an intro to Odylique page they have a whole FAQ page all about this new development of the Odylique brand. It's very interesting and worth a read as they cover loads of info about the change. They even say how many of the Essential Care products will become Odylique in the future so it's worth reading if you have current Essential Care products.

What do you think of this new launch from Essential Care?

Hooray after things being a little quiet on the natural beauty and skincare news front, I have some great, great news to share!

Lavera! Yes this great brand have launched a whole huge heap of hair care products! They already have a few hair products in their range but this is a whole new level of total all-round hair care, natural style!

I cannot believe it is December already! Well actually i can because i'm wrapped up in bed typing this as it is the only warm place in the house, and i can't go anywhere about town without a father christmas thrusting gym subscriptions at me! Hey the merriment of December!

Anyhow i've been testing some new products lately after i set myself a mission to just get on and use up all those samples and travel sized minis that are overflowing in my very many draws and cupboards. First impressions are quite important to me, but not the be all and end all. Many times i'll try a product, not like it and then pick it up again months later and fall in love. But when i adore after the first or first few uses, that's when i know its a golden keeper fosho.
