Skin Organics February Beauty Box – Love Yourself.

Hello fellow beauty addicts,

This month’s February Skin Organics Clean Beauty Box is another cracking box giving me exciting new products that I haven’t tried before! I just love it as I adore skincare and this brings me fresh & exciting new products to try.

So this month’s box is based around ‘Love yourself’ we all get caught up in the stresses of the world and taking some time out to take care of ourselves is something we rarely do, as we are too busy running around after everyone else! So what could be better than a lovely box of wonderful products to help us to take that time out and have a chill.

My first product is Inner Senses Organics limited Edition Sensual Body oil – made especially for this box! Firstly it has a good top on it so you can’t knock it over and lose half the oil. This sensual blend includes clary sage, ylang ylang, Patchouli. It goes onto the skin like silk and the wonderful fragrance lingers lightly your skin. I adore patchouli so when I use this and get that lovely waft of the patchouli I am a happy girl, very mood boosting. (which I need right now).

Love to Cleanse by Guiltless Skin – Organic Rosehip Cleansing Gel, this is one where the jury is still out. Made for the most sensitive of skins this has organic rosehip oil in. It has a really good grip factor on the skin meaning you can give your skin a really good massage with this product and when I say ‘grips the skin’ I mean you can feel it under your fingers and it is pulling all the dirt out of pores as you massage which is really good particularity for sensitive congested skins. It emulsifies really easily rinsing clean off the skin and no dry feeling or tightness. I need to use it some more to decide if it is for me tho.

Make Skincare Fresh Floral Mist & Toner – Well now this is a bit of a revelation! Firstly the bottle is absolutely stunning. I had a look on their website and all their products come in brightly coloured bottles and jars. I love that, so fresh! The bottle contains pure floral waters. I much prefer floral waters to toners as I don’t like a lot of alcohol & preservatives in toners. I like to give my skin a good spritz with a product like this and let it soak in and it is another step of hydration, contains – Rose, Geranium and Lavender Flower Water, so I really love this and the pop of colour on the bottle does the soul good .. a fantastic price of £10 for 100ml.
SKINORHANICS15 gets you 15% off on their website !

Juno Skincare – Illumine lip glaze – is a beautiful nourishing balm for the lips. It is a beautiful fresh rose colour in the pot. It has just enough colour to brighten the lips a bit and the hint of colour makes lips look younger and bright. I love this product because of how it makes my lips feel, soft and conditioned so I keep it close by me always. The name Juno is a goddess and protector of women who keeps watch over us, I like that as I like strong women who support each other. I need to check out other products in this brand, I get such a lovely vibe off it.
SKINORGANICS10 gets you 10% off on their website.

Last but my no means least is the Seed of Life Holistic Health – Eternal Rose Bathing Salts. I love my bath salts and this is wonderfully fragrant and luxurious it has Neroli, Grapefruit,palmarosa & Frankincense,& rose damascena, super mood boosting oils plus pink Himalayan salt, Epsom salts & dead sea salt this gave me such a luxurious soothing bath and every time I went into my bathroom I could still smell the beautiful oils … ahhh heaven nothing like a bath with great salts in to take the ache out of your bones!
SK10 for 10% off on the website.

I absolutely love this box! It brings me new and beautiful organic, clean products to try every month. The owner wants to be different and bring new products from smaller Artisan brands. I have had so many beautiful things in every box I can only rave it about it. It is streets ahead of any other boxes out there bringing me something to get really excited about it every month!

The February box is sold out but you can sign up for the March box and NICOLA10 gets you 10% off your first box. You can check out more about the products here: Skin Organics Clean Organic Beauty Box

That is it for now folks, keep warm!

Siskyn Grapefruit & Sweet Fennel Toning Body Oil.

Hello Beauties,

Siskyn was created by two sisters Emma & Sarah who had a host of different skin conditions ranging from very dry, combination, to oily, and sensitive!

After trying so many ‘good’ products to help themselves, they found a lot of products lacking in quality and plus found they were full of silicone’s & parabens & preservatives.

So they decided to learn about skincare and about quality ingredients and how that mattered, they decided to start their own range of 100% organic, pure vegan oils of the highest quality there is .. and so Siskyn was born, an ‘eco luxe’ brand bringing you the finest blends of high potency oils from across the world!

As I get older I look more and more to organic products, clean, green beauty that really hydrates my dry skin. Quality of ingredients matter so much more to me now, it has to work.

Ok so back to my Grapefruit & Sweet Fennel toning body oil! I got this in my Skin Organics Clean Beauty Box and It smells so good you could eat it. The sweet fennel – that light aniseed cutting across the citrus of the grapefruit is just a heavenly mix and I am hooked.
I am going to have to get a full size.
For me I know something is good when I pick it up time and time again and I do that with this oil … as my mother always said ‘Where the heart lies the feet wander’. So true!

IMG_20180131_131215219 (2).jpg

It is delicious, my skin loves it and drinks it up, it is a blend of 14 organic botanical oils to stimulate, redefine, tone and hydrate your skin. It has black cumin oil & carrot seed oil, well known for their deeply hydrating qualities and as you massage it on with the lovely scent of the sweet fennel & grapefruit you just feel so good using it. This has to be the best body oil product I have picked up and been crazy about in years.

Absolutely mad about this oil and have my eye on a few others too. Currently trying the Frankincense & Jasmine nite oil and I have the Camelia & Safflower hot cloth cleansing oil on the go too, enjoying using a lot of high quality oils at the moment. But right now this body oil is my favourite!

If you love good quality ingredients, organic, vegan or are just learning about how important it is that good quality ingredients make good quality skincare then take a look at Siskyn Oils .. they are winning awards everywhere and it is not hard to see of feel why, they are stunning and they work …

That is it for now folks

Skin Organics -Clean & Natural Beauty Box Competition!


Hello Beauties,

Today I have a competition for you! Yay!

It is for a Skin Organics Beauty Box. I have to say, I have been seriously impressed with the box I was sent and I have decided to subscribe, as I just love organics and clean products. Our skins readily accept these products and they work so much better on the skin (no harsh parabens).

Every month, you get sent 5 organic and clean products for just £21 plus £3.95 shipping .. For organic products that is a pretty amazing price, as it really can be much more expensive for niche, purer products. Funny how you have to pay more for products in their natural state and not filled with ingredients to really dry your skin out and irritate it!

Everything about this box feels smart, clean and beautiful. I am absolutely loving the 5 products I was sent. They are all award winning products, which I will list below, as you will receive the same box if you win.

Siskyn Camelia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil – a skin-brightening cleansing oil, that is gentle enough to take over your eyes to remove your eye makeup too. I don’t know about you, but sometimes  I think it is a pain having to get a lot of different cleansers out at bedtime!

Terre Verdi Acqua Di Rose Balancing Mist – Anyone who knows me, knows I am crazy about rose water and this one is lovely and pure as it just contains pure Damask Rosewater. I will be buying this in a full size as it has not left my side since it arrived (alcohol free).

Freyaluna Tea Tree and Peppermint Refreshing Foot Scrub – when I opened the box I could smell the beautiful peppermint coming from this … it is a brown sugar scrub and with it being so hot at the minute, it is a real treat to refresh hot tired feet. The good thing about a sugar scrub is it goes all creamy on the feet as the sugar dissolves leaving so silky smooth.

Kathy Sue Ann’s Anti-Ageing Eye Balm – Now this is a bit different to what I am used to, but I think it is a very good product. Particularly where I live, on the coast, it can get very windy and you can get watery eyes that sting and get very irritated. In an emergency, great on lips or other patches of irritated skin too.

Last up is Maggie Ann’s Nail Polish in Grace – A beautiful bright pink for summer! Free from 6, this nail polish is Peta approved gel polish and its formula is streak free and super glossy.

So how do you enter to win this box? Just like the skin Organics facebook page HERE & Subscribe to their website HERE (wait for the pop up to appear) and like my Facebook page too HERE and leave a comment on the competition on my facebook page to say you have entered all the conditions and give the competition a share.

Winner will be drawn at random in on Friday evening (4th of August), good luck everyone ❤ . You can also get 10% off one of The Skin Organics with code firstbox10.

Bye for now

December’s Love Lula Beauty Box

Hey Folks,

Its that time of the month when one of my favorite beauty boxes gets handed to me by my wee postie 🙂

My Love Lula Beauty Box!


My first item is a Salcura Hand Hydrator, i really go through a ton of hand creams as i only have to look at products with SLS in and my skin starts to dry out, i also have contact dermatitis on palms of my hands as i am allergic to a lot of metals like nickel.

This is a fabulous hand cream! It sinks very quickly  into my hands, there is no residue left on the hands. Designed for people with mild to moderate dry skin on their hands i have found this hand cream a real treat to use and it seems to be helping my dry skin issues.


Next up is Joik Silky Facial Serum and Joik Shimmering body lotion, i am putting them together as they are only very small samples and i do not rate them as individual items at that size really.  The lotion i have not received yet but it is on its way so onto the serum..


Joik Silky Facial Serum has cranberry and wheatgerm has to be in the most awkward opening serum sachet ever!! Who is going to guess you fold and squeeze it and the oil comes our the underside all over the place lol ( its not idiot proof for people like me hehe) .. it smells lovely and is meant to be for mature skin and that is as far as i got this as it went everywhere which is a shame as a love trying new serums and skincare!


My Joik luxury bath truffle smells divine! I got a lovely citrus one, you pop them in under running how water and they melt into the water giving you  beautifully scented extra hydrating bath! With ingredients like orange, grapefruit essential oils they are also packed with Shea butter and are all 100% natural .. heaven 🙂

Fair Squared vegan lip balms are not products i have heard of before but their balms are wonderfully soft and just glide over the lips without pulling the skin. I got a spearmint and a pomegranate one the latter of which i have open and am using.


Made with apricot kernel, almond, coconut and coca butter these balms are ultra soft and hydrating on my lips i have to say and much needed at this time of year.  They are fair trade and really reasonably priced too at £2.99!

Last but not least is Dr Bonner’s Magic Soap, i have used a variety of these soaps before and if you travel a lot a bottle of this is an incredible handy thing to have because .. well you can wash just about everything with it!


There is no harsh chemicals in it and when its cold it can go cloudy and that’s testament to the natural oils in the product.. Dr Bronner himself has a fascinating life story and is worth a read up on as he was a truly fascinating man and a lot of his traditions are still carried out today including the writing on the bottles .. his soap is fantastic pure castile eco soap and mine smells wonderfully almond and marzipany .. just love it , so warming ❤

So this month i am torn with my Love Lula box, there is bits i loved like the hand cream and the soap and that’s really where the value of this box lies plus the lip balms. The Joik not so much really as the samples are tiny and the face oil very awkward to open.

But i can still see the value in the box and the fact it is organic too accounts for a lot too, so here is looking forward to January and another organic beauty box from Love Lula!


As always there is a card with 20% off the the brands in the box too which gives some pretty amazing discounts on products ..

Bye for now folks
