Weleda Skin Food Review - this cream is made from all natural ingredients and is perfect for dry skin that needs a little TLC

Weleda is one of my all time favourite natural skincare brands, whom I discovered about 6/7 years ago. Back then I was still very new to the natural skincare and eco living thing. In fact, one of the reasons I got into natural skincare is because I’d been searching for a remedy to soothe my dry and angry skin. And funnily enough, the product I’m reviewing today was my first jump into Weleda’s products – their highly praised Skin Food.

Hey all! It’s been a little while since I last blogged. I can’t believe how quick the time has passed as it only seems like I posted a few weeks ago! Life has been quite busy recently and for that reason I’ve not felt up to blogging.

I've Been Poorly And Dealing With Hospital Admission

Sometimes Things Don’t Go To Plan

Christmas was extremely busy and I’d not been feeling too great during the festive period. I had a noticeable increase in various symptoms that deep down I knew what the problem was. I didn’t do anything about it since I just felt so fedup of my health getting in the way. Looking back I should have addressed this issue sooner as it completely fudged up a surgical procedure on 28th December. They found an intestinal stricture (as I said – I knew what my problem was) which needed fixing. Unfortunately it meant that what I went in for got sidelined. View Post

I’ve been meaning to do a quarterly favourites post for some time now. But each time I thought about it, I ended up prioritizing another post. Well, I’ve finally sat down and snapped my current Winter 2017 skin and haircare faves to share with you all! These are all products I am super enthusiastic about right now. From organic hair baths, right through to CBD oil balm for sore joints. You’ll find an array of different products and brands featured here. Enjoy!

Green Haircare Faves

From L-R: Oway Silk ‘n Glow Hair Bath, Pure Potions Natural Shampoo, Oway Moisturizing Hair Mask, Evolve Hair Oil

The Oway silk ‘n glow hair bath and moisturizing hair masks are an absolute winter staple for my hair. I find with central heating that my hair seems to dry out quite a bit. Not to mention it gets quite fluffy. These two products help smooth my hair and add much needed moisture back, too. After my hair is dry, I love to add the hair oil from Evolve to the mid lengths and ends of my hair to give it extra nourishment. The oil is quite light, so it doesn’t weigh down hair. The natural shampoo from Purepotions isn’t something I personally use often on myself. However, I use it on my son a LOT. He has a very dry scalp that’s extremely dandruff prone. This is the only shampoo that’s worked for him. Plus it’s 99.9% natural which is a huge plus and very important to me. A must have if you have dandruff or eczema. View Post

Hello my lovelies! I can’t believe that the year has flown SO fast and that Christmas is nearly here. I’m totally unprepared. How about you? Just like last year, I’ve put together a little guide for you that features eco and green products to help you out. Much like last year, there will be a few affiliate links, which, as always, will be clearly marked. I’ve also included any discount codes I have with the brands mentioned so you can try save some money. I hope you enjoy my 2017 Christmas gift guide!

A little while ago, a few readers asked me about my opinion on the deodorants available from Weleda. Being that I am a tad obsessed with reviewing natural deodorants, of course I got a couple to try out. It’s taken a good few months of testing but I think that it’s important to be as thorough as possible with things like this. After all, who wants stinky pits?!

Weleda Deodorant Review

I was sent three deodorants by Weleda to try: The spray version in citrus and wild rose, plus their roll on in citrus. View Post

Urtekram makes affordable, organic skincare that's cruelty free

Urtekram is a Danish organic brand that makes cruelty free skincare and haircare. Many of their products are vegan, plus they’re very affordable. I was recently sent some products to try out. Below is my review.

Aloe Vera Body Lotion

This body lotion says regenerating on the label, so is meant to be great for skin. With my recent issues with random allergic reactions, my skin has been very sore. Whilst this lotion didn’t help with the severe itching, it did help soothe my skin once the severe itching from my reactions had passed. The Aloe Vera lotion has a very thin consistency to it and is slightly watery. But that’s not a negative. I like that because it’s very lightweight. This would be perfect for people whose skin needs just a little moisture. I don’t think this would work well on very dry skin. View Post
