Sunday... What better day to chill out with my mango and coconut juice and post to my blog!

Today I want to share with you another product from Botanicals, this company is one of my favourites at the moment, I literally love everything of theirs I've tried.

If you aren't aware of Botanicals they are a natural, vegan, cruelty free brand that are all about plant based products and basically providing ethical products, if you'd like to find out more follow the link below:

Their products can also be found at Botanical Brands who are a re-seller of brands with the same ethics, to check them out click here:

Anyway, back to the product itself...

"Botanicals gentle aromatic hydrating mist will remove the last traces of cleanser, help balance the skin’s natural ph, and replenish the skin with essential moisture."

I've been using this stuff as a toner, a cleanser but most of all a post and during workout cool down method haha!!

Getting back from a run and little spritz of this is so good! Not only does it smell amazing it cools you down and makes you feel clean again...kinda...even though you're dripping with sweat and stink!

Not only for after exercise but as a summer essential, it's generally been quite warm lately so it's great to take with you out and about in the sun to cool down.

You can spray it straight on your face or on to a cotton pad thingy... (I can't help how this sounds) I prefer it straight on the face... 

Moving on...

You can buy it online in two sizes: regular (100ml – £20) or salon (200ml – £35).

There is also another "flavour", rose & camellia which also sounds lovely.

Overall I really like the product and so did my skin, how could it not with all those natural organic ingredients...

I would recommend this to anyone, it says for all skin types and I wouldn't disagree!

Yay! So I've finally go around to resubscribing to LoveLula Beauty Boxes, I used to receive these a coueple years ago but lost my card so the DD cancelled and just kept forgetting to resubscribe...

2 years later haha! And here we are! If you don't know who LoveLula are, they are natural, cruelty free and organic beauty products seller... in a nutshell...and they do a monthly Beauty Box.

Anyway so in this months bow you receive the following:

MADARA - Fine Line Minimising Cream 20ml
"NEW from Madara! As part of their new Smart Antioxidants range this Fine Line Minimising Cream will help boost the skin’s natural vitality & radiance."

I am a huge fan of the Madara stuff, I have loads of it to be honest and I actually have a delivery on it's way to me of some more stuff...oops... It's essentials though like make up remover...

But I haven't actually used this product yet but if it's like the rest I know I'll love it!

LYONSLEAF - Marshmallow Facial Oil 30ml 
"Rich in antioxidants to halt damaging chain reactions caused by free radicals. Contains a broad range of fatty acids that boost lipid content, bolstering skin barrier and helping the skin retain moisture."

Now I looove this stuff, I love oils and stuff like that... The thought of this natural essentail things soaking in my face fills me with so much joy and this stuff you can wear in the day before you put on your normal moisturiser... It's not greasy at all! I love it! 

It smells nice, feels good on and yeah...what more can I say!

JOHN MASTERS ORGANICS - Spearmint & Meadowseet Scalp Stimulating Shampoo 60ml
"This purifying shampoo optimizes scalp conditions for healthy, manageable hair. Six certified-organic ingredients remove build up and stimulate the scalp while soy proteins hydrate hair and lock in moisture."

John Masters...Amazing as always! If you really want to treat your hair any of their products are winners.

I like the smell of this one but personally prefer their lavender range!

PHB Ethical Beauty - All In One Natural Mascara - Black 
"PHB’s Award-Winning, All-In-One Natural Mascara is the perfect all-encompassing mascara. It lengthens, thickens and volumises lashes with a gentle water-resistant formula that lasts all day."

Now receiving this annoyed me because I literally bought my own about a month ago!!

Luckily I love it so it won't go to waste but I couldn't believe it haha! But yeah a lovely natural mascara that lasts all day!

REN - Satin Perfection BB Cream 3ml 
"A silicone free BB cream with colour adaptive technology. It adjusts to a wide range of skin tones and leaves the skin looking flawless, even toned and luminous with a perfect non-oily, satin finish."

I haven't used much Ren stuff in the past just the odd sample cream, I have been using this everyday since receiving the box and yeah it's great...

It's not thick and gross, it's definitely a more natural look which for everyday use is what I'm after. 

Roll on August's box!

I can't wait already!

So it feels like forever since I've posted and well it's nearly been a month.

I won't bore you with the details of my absence but basically I lost my other bunny Marley, he passed away a couple weeks ago and to be honest I just haven't really felt like blogging...

But anyway today's post is something slightly different, I want to talk to you about toothbrushes! Wooohooo!

Humble Brush is a small company from Sweden. The brush handle is made out of 100% bio-degradable bamboo, as bamboo is naturally antibacterial it means that there is no need to use fertilizers or pesticides so no plastic and no chemicals.

The bristles are made out of nylon however this isn't the usual nylon you find on toothbrushes, Humble Brush use Nylon 6 which is bio-degradable, free from BPA and also a durable material that degrades over time.

As well as being better for the environment, cruelty free and vegan, every brush you buy they donate another to a child in need through their charitable organisation, Humble Smile Foundation. 

Humble Smile Foundation manages oral health outreach projects for kids that live in the most vulnerable areas around the world. 

Brushing your teeth is something we do normally twice a day without thinking about it, I am sure most of us have never even thought about the fact that for so many people is the world don't have the option to keep their teeth clean.

The packaging as you can see is lovely, the brush comes in a little wrapper within the box which I like, nice and clean.

It's hard to review a toothbrush because it is what it is... For me the best part is all the benefits mentioned above, its vegan, CF and helps the environment! As for the brush, it's just a normal decent toothbrush, does what a toothbrush should.

Why all toothbrushes are't made this way I don't know... 2017 and we're still making things like this out of plastic that will sit on the earth pretty much forever...

The only negative comments I have is nothing you wouldn't get from a normal plastic toothbrush but when you have the brush in a holder the bottom of the handle can get a bit gross... basically don't leave it in a cup after using it!

Feels like forever since I've posted! It's actually been just over a week, I've been weirdly busy lately, not with anything interesting but still busy...

Not that anyone cares what I've been doing or why I've been slack with posting so lets crack on with another summer themed post!

This post is going to be about the most important summer essential, second to sun protection (obviously), bronzer!

The product in particular is Living Nature's Summer Bronze Pressed Powder.

Living Nature is a skincare company based in New Zealand however can be purchased here in the UK from Botanical Brands.

Living Nature of course a cruelty free brand to be featured here on my little blog, their products are also all made from natural ingredients and a number of them are vegan friendly.

Now to the bronzer itself, let me firstly say I'm not a major bronzer'll never see me with a full on orange face... I use the stuff vary sparingly, thankfully this particular bronzer is a nice subtle colour.

I tend to use bronzer to contour, I don't mean Kim Kardashian style, just lightly here and there so I'm not all the same flat colour all over and to avoid looking like a big moon face... 

This stuff is perfect for me, literally adds a nice shimmer and colour without looking streaky or orange and gross.

Not only does it looks great it lasts all day, it doesn't curdle on my face and go all patchy like previous ones I've tried have done.

There's not much more I can say really, if you're in need of a new bronzer that is cruelty free, vegan and isn't too heavy this is the stuff for you.

I'll admit it is kinda pricey but you really do get what you pay for, an ethical, lovely, long lasting golden summer shimmered face of destiny.
