Mono Oils – Organic, Wild Crafted, Raw, Fresh, Outstanding Radiance Oil.

Hello fellow skincare addicts,

Since I started getting the Skin Organics clean Beauty box I have been introduced to some of the most beautiful oils I have ever tried! All made with the brand owners own special blends, for me it is exciting to try them all and these oils are so light and refined they just glide over the skin and sink in like no others.

Mono Oils the Radiance face oil. Mono Oils are Artisan skincare and made in small batches to retain freshness.
They contain organic raw cold processed oils at their very best, they are designed to harness both the body and spirit and they really do! They are addictive! Ones you pick these bottles up you will not want to pick up anything else.

Radiance face oil is an evening oil, it is light and a little goes a very long way, you can really work it over your face giving yourself a good massage, great to use with the Hayo’u beauty restorer I know some of my friends bought.

This oil is perfect for mature ,combination and dry skins like mine(mature/dry). First thing I noticed about this oil was the absolutely beautiful look of the green plant oils within this oil (give it a little shake before using). Seeing this oil so pure appeals not only to the chef in me but to knowing how easily it warms in my hands and then inhaling those oils – such raw freshness, my skin is at the softest and most hydrated it has been for a good few winters at least.

Luxurious, silky and with organic oils of Camelia, Rosehip, Neroli & Sandalwood to mood boost this oil is a blend of 12 oils to immediately nourish the skin and get your glow back. Honestly it has left my skin so well conditioned, calm and glowing and silky smooth. It is also full of these essential omegas/essential fatty acids our skin needs alongside powerful antioxidants. It is infused with Citrine.

Citrine – a warm and comforting stone of abundance, often described as sunshine packed into a crystal. Citrine enhances the whole body’s healing energy and is full of positive vibrations, emitting a warm energy that promotes joy, happiness and optimism, strengthening the inner light, and warding off depression, stress and general unhappiness.

Honestly blown away by this stunning oil, I just want more, completely addictive and I am well and truly hooked on the quality, feel and the incredible mood boost and lift I get off this oil. I naturally radiate towards it every day, they are stunning in every way and I am so pleased to have found them because for now I am ruined for all others!
I am very lucky because this beautiful oil came from a cracking October Autumn Glow – Skin Organics Clean beauty box!
You need to love/adore skincare I think to know you that have something very special here. Something that stops you in your tracks and really fulfills what you and your skin are looking for …

Salon Science Repair and Protect Duo


Hello everyone,

I always dread the start of winter, when I put the heat on and as I have gotten older I can really feel it not only drying out my skin, but my hair too.

Usually I leave my hair curly in summer and let it dry on its own. But in winter, I need to get the hairdryer out, so I can get it dry faster and I need to be putting on products that help protect my hair and stop it going dry and crispy lol.

The Salon Science Repair and Protect Duo contains Swiss Grape to repair the hair and add radiance. I also has a ‘state of the art UV filter’. Salon Science combines hair care with the latest beauty technology to bring you powerful hair products that work.



So first up is the Reglosse Smoothing Serum. The first thing I notice is I love how it smells and the second thing I note is you only need a small amount of this .. don’t overload your hair. My hair feels silky soft and frizzy ends are smoothed out, it’s really nourishing!

Then you apply the Salon Science Reprotectant Thermal Creme. This binds to the hairs surface, protecting it from heat, preventing damage caused by styling. It also has a state of the art UV filter, protecting the hair from environmental factors too. It has Vitamin E and other antioxidants to help maintain hair colour and shine. It also conditions the hair and helps prevent further damage, always a good thing, as most people pick up the straighteners non stop these days.



Really this is a fantastic set, anytime of year, for anyone who styles their hair a lot. It not only nourishes and takes down any frizz, but it leaves hair beautifully glossy and not weighed down with product.

My hair feels light, fresh and healthy. I detest a lot of product in my hair or that feeling like it is bogged down with products. So this feels great and my hair is lovely & shiny. They are big sizes of product and will definitely last me the winter.

If you would like to check out the Salon Science Duo for yourself, there is a fantastic £9.50 off the Duo here ..with the Libbie Club

Anne Semonin The Daily Musts – Coffret

Hello you gorgeous lot!

Anne Semonin is a pioneering, high end, Parisian brand. It aims to bring vitality, freshness and nourishment to skin, no matter what your age, with the approach that everyone’s skin is unique and everyone’s skin changes daily.

This brand has been on my wish list for a while now, as it can be quite pricey and a considered purchase. This affordable Daily Musts Coffret, allows you to try this brand’s holistic approach to skincare and how they can tailor it to your needs.


So this travel set of 4 masks (always use masks on cleansed skin for best results) contains:

Exfoliating Mask infused with Red Seaweed and Kaolin clay. It sloughs off old skin-cells, dirt and oil, freshens and brightens your complexion and is great for both oily, congested skin and dry skin alike. This has left my skin baby smooth, matte and ready for my morning skincare routine.


Gel Mask Enriched with Marine Trace Elements and Uplifting Essential Oils. This mask energises tired, older skin-types (yes please). It gives a great radiance boost to your face before a night out, as it gives firmer, glowing skin. It definitely gives skin and mind a boost from the off ..it is fantastic!


Mineral Mask Full of Marine Trace Elements & Minerals. This mask can be used in several ways: of course as a face mask, but also as a stand alone eye mask, a booster mask and even a cleanser, so a very handy one to have on the go! Perfect for congested, lifeless skin, it detoxifies, balances and brightens your skin, leaving you with a lovely, healthy glow.


Last but by no means least, is the Cream Mask, which is a lovely rich, nourishing mask to feed the skin. It has jojoba, shea butter & marine minerals and it takes down redness and restores calm, to sensitive or damaged skin. It is a powerful, vitamin infused, hug of a face mask. It will soothe broken capillaries, redness and re-plump tired skin. It is like a big, fluffy, comfy blanket for the skin .. I love this, it’s so soothing and it smells so comforting too.


You can custom blend and mix these masks to your own needs. They are incredibly balanced and put the right nourishment back into your skin as they go.

What I will also say, is that I got 2 masks out of each pot. This makes these beautiful, luxury, high end masks £2.50 a go. This in my book, for what they are, makes them a very affordable treat for someone who loves skincare, like myself.

This I hope won’t be my last foray into her skincare .. I want some more asap!

James Read H20 Mist with Rosewater

Hey Everyone,

I got sent the brand new on the market James Read gradual tan with a rose water infusion.



Firstly let me say I adore pure rose water  and use it a lot in my skincare, it is my daily morning and night toner. It soothes my skin, takes down any redness and it is a hydrolat which means that it hydrates deeply as it goes.

So when I saw this tanning mist had rose water in it i was excited to try it last night. It is super easy to use and perfect for people with busy lives who want to look healthy, tanned and not have to sit and wait ages for their tan to dry!

This tanning mist puts you completely in control of your tanning and what colour you want to go as a light mist will give you a healthy look and be great in fair skins like myself and a few spritzes morning and evening will of course give you a bit of a stronger tan.

I don’t think this is for people who are avid die hard tanners as they would be looking for a much stronger look but it you like a light tan/golden glow then this really is fab!

First thing I noticed last night was no tan smell (yay) at all! The tanning mist is infused with rose water and minerals .. I used this on clean dry skin. My skin tends to be on the dry side and this did not dry it out in any way. In fact I went to bed with no other skincare on and even this morning skin looked and felt well hydrated.


The mist is clear and doesn’t stain clothes/ It can be used as a primer under make up or applied on top to set make up .. and to give a hydration boost and refresh to skin during the day.

You just hold the bottle about 15 cm from your face and spray evenly over your face .. let it dry and get on with your day, apply your make up or whatever that may be.

All things considered I really like this Tanning Mist because it is light .. natural in colour, it hydrates really well, doesn’t smell and I like the colour of my skin today, so much so I have put another application on so .. tomorrow I shall look like I had a week away (I wish lol)

The only thing I was not overly impressed with was the nozzle that delivers the spray, I feel it could be finer and deliver a much lighter spritz to the face and it would go on even more evenly ..other than that it is fantastic!


Have you tried the James Read H20 Rose Water Face Mist yet? I think it is perfect for pale skins for summer ..I want to look golden, healthy and hydrated and this mist delivers on all of these points!

You can check out the Tan here where there is 10% off The Libbie Club and get your glow on for summer.

That is it for now folks

Miracle Cleanser by Aurelia

Hi everyone,



Aurelia is a brand I am really getting into. I have bought the face scrub as I found it to be pretty incredible and leaves my skin like velvet. So when I was sent the cleaner to try i have just been blown away by these skincare products.

Auriela mixes powerful pro-biotic and peptide technology with BioOrganic plant and flower essences. So these products feel really gentle on the skin yet they are power packed to leave your skin feeling at it’s optimum level of hydration, calmness and softness.

I have to say I am totally loving how this cleanser makes my skin feel and look. After using there is a firmness to my skin, my pores are a lot smaller, my skin feels really clean, balanced and nurtured.

There is a real calmness to my skin.



Auriela uses only organic ingredients, it is free from any nasties that can dry your skin out or inflame it and after only one use I could really see and feel that firmness and real radiance to my skin. That makes me pick it up time and time again and still sill see these amazing results.

This cleanser is packed full of amazing ingredients to really feed your skin like Boabab which is packed full of omegas and vitamin c, Mongoongo oil full of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Kigelia Africano that I can really feel firming my skin. It is also used for helping a number of skin conditions such as dry, itchy skin, redness, eczema and psoriasis.

It is blended with essential oils that not only smell amazing but they are in there for the job they do on the skin.Chamomile a natural calmer and anti inflammatory, Rosemary invigorating and stimulating, great for refreshing your mind too! Bergamont to uplift and Eucalyptus to decongest any troubled areas of skin.



All this comes together to make a very powerful hard working cleanser on the skin, it repairs damaged skin, heals, feeds de-stresses, takes down inflammation, firms and just leaves skin feeling super velvet soft, calm, relaxed, happy, glowing skin.

Good cleansers don’t just cleanse your skin nowadays, they put hydration back into your skin, take down redness, calm, soothe and feed your skin. They put back in what the day takes out and stabilise your skins natural oils.

You seriously could not want more from a cleanser .. I have noticed how well my skin looked from the very first use. I really noticed a marked firmness, a natural glow from my skin and it just looks really calm and healthy.



Have you tried the Miracle Cleanser by Aurelia? I absolutely love it! So much so I have just bought the Refine and Polish Miracle Balm too, it is an investment for great skin!

Our skin is the biggest organ we have, it is multi sensory and we should look after it a lot better than we sometimes do..

From the beautiful bamboo cleansing cloth to the packaging this product comes in. Everything about it says your in for a really special treat and it lives up to that feeling completely!

You can get a free travel sized Miracle Cleanser with your purchase of a full sized Miracle Cleanser here through the Libbie Club and free postage too.
