acquarella / review / beauty expression / nail polish / persnickety / nail varnish / water based / non toxic





Acquarella water based nail polish in the shade persnickety






Product description

A subtle opaque, lavender grey colour with a hint of shimmer. Acquarella offers a high quality, chemicals free nail polish based on natural ingredients. The special water-based formula hydrates your nails and allows them to breathe, prevents from chipping, peeling and yellowing, creates strong and beautiful looking nails.

Review

When I received this nail varnish I didn't know a lot about water based nail varnishes so I did a bit of research and the idea behind them is a good one because it means there are less fumes and the product is more natural and less chemical. So I was looking forward to trying the product based on this idea.

The product did not disappoint. There is no pungent smell from opening the bottle that you get with normal nail varnishes. My husband absolutely hates the smell of regular nail varnishes and will leave the room if I am doing my nails but with this he didn't even notice till I was halfway through my second hand and that was only because he noticed the bottle!

The second great thing about this product is that if you make a mistake while it is still drying you can just wash it straight off.

I would suggest gloves when washing up so that you don't remove the nail varnish too soon but that's a small price to pay for such a natural and eco friendly product.

I also like the idea that my nails can breathe whilst I am wearing this product.

I love this colour that I received and the coverage with two coats is brilliant as you can see from my picture above.

So overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a less toxic way to paint their nails.

rossi skincare / review /clear and bright face cream / blemish problem skin / natural / sensitive skin / pure ingredients


Clear and bright face cream



Product description 

A gentle face cream formulated to sooth and relieve the symptomes and causes of minor problem and blemish prone skin.
Formulated with Tea Tree organic essential oil with antibacterial properties to keep pores clear and organic Lavender oil, also antibacterial and an excellent skin tonic.
  • Antibacterial and astringent properties
  • To help relieve and improve skin appearance
  • High quality ingredients to nourish and support skin
100% pure and natural ingredients. No Parabens, Sulphates, Petro- chemicals, PEGs, Phthalates, plastic fillers or other synthetic chemicals which could be harmful to your skin.



Review

I have been using this product alongside the pure and clear face toning mist, also by Rossi skincare, to help with blemish prone skin.

This is a very light cream and I have had no adverse reaction to it no redness or itchiness.

It is absorbed quickly and leaves no oily residue on the skin

I was pleasantly surprised that it had a nice fragrance even though it contained tea tree which I sometimes find can overpower a product if it contains it.

I also like the fact that the products from the Rossi skin care range are 100% natural so there are no synthetic ingredients and because I have sensitive skin my body seems to work better with this type of product.

100% natural, pure and unrefined ingredients. No Parabens, Sulphates,   Petro-chemicals, PEGs, Phthalates, plastic fillers or other synthetic chemicals which could be harmful to your skin.


Review

I don't usually use this kind of product because I don't like my face to feel wet and I want to dry it straight away but this product was so light and went into the skin straight away, if held far away enough, that it was nice and refreshing.

One of the claims is that it reduces sebum oil production and I found that this actually did happen because my skin gets really oily which causes me to breakout especially on my chin and forehead and this was definitely decreased with this product.

You only need one spray for the desired effect so I can see this bottle lasting for quite a long time.

I had no reaction on my skin no redness or itchy patches and overall it did do what it claimed to.

I have found myself reaching for this quite a lot throughout the day.

I also like the fact that the products from the Rossi skin care range are 100% natural and because I have sensitive skin my body seems to work better with this type of product.

pure organic heaven / review / radiant eye revive / organic / natural / skin care radiant eye



I received this beautiful pot of eye gel from this company




Product description:

A soothing eye gel for women, containing ingredients with anti-ageing properties. This cooling eye gel should be applied to the skin around the eyes to help reduce puffiness and instantly feel refreshed and revived.

The natural ingredients in amazing eye gel instantly make you feel refreshed. Organic aloe vera has anti-inflammatory, hydrating and anti-aging properties along with soothing and calming the skin. Organic arnica reduces dark circles and puffiness. Organic eyebright reduces inflammation and helps reduce eye fatigue. Vitamin E is essential in maintaining youthful, well nourished skin. Other natural ingredients are also used to create this product.

Review

Comes in a well presented pot with the little added touch of sparkle which I thought attractive.

As soon as I opened this package I was impressed by the nice light fragrance of this product and I actually tried the product there and then.

 The consistency is not too thick and sticky and is quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving a residue.

I have tried other products like this before and have had to wipe them off as they have irritated the skin at the corner of my eye but I did not have this problem with this product.

Overall I would say this is a well-made quality product and would definitely recommend to people who have sensitive skin around the eyes as the natural products work very well to soothe and calm the skin.

lyonsleaf / sample / natural body butter and beauty balm / healthy skin care



This company have sent me a selection of their products to review:

Natural body butter


Product description


Natural beauty balm

100% Natural Body Butter with Organic Shea butter, Coconut & Avocado.
 
Healthy skin is beautiful skin and this product will repair damage and maintain skin health for long-term benefits rather than the short-term, short-lived plumping achieved with water based products.
Natually free of artificial fragrance and colour. By leaving out the water you can also avoid all antimicrobial preservatives (like parabens and phenoxyethanol) and emulsifiers (which play havok with the skins protective outer layer, the stratum corneum).
You get 100% active ingredients bursting with natural emollients, vitamins, antioxidants that fight the root causes of skin ageing.


Product description

Natural beauty balm

They have blended 100% Natural oils including Shea Butter, Babassu Oil, Macademia Nut, Jojoba Oils and essential oils with their home grown Calendula to create this Natural Beauty Balm.
Natually free of artificial fragrance and colour. By leaving out the water they can also avoid all antimicrobial preservatives (like parabens and phenoxyethanol) and emulsifiers.
Water-free means you get 100% active ingredients bursting with vitamins, antioxidants that fight the root causes of premature skin ageing. Because they only use cold pressed, unrefined oils and because they cold blend them, they maximise the beneficial compounds in the mixture.
They have chosen rich, yet light oils that are easily absorbed right into the deepest layers of the epidermis. Used correctly (sparingly) you will find this product absorbs remarkably quickly, leaving no greasy residue. And you will find a conveniently small jar lasts a very long time.

I shall be trying out these products and doing a blog post about how I got on so be sure to check back and see what I thought.

sophie la girafe / review / organic / skincare for the whole family / sensitive / natural




I have now used these two products on both me and my four year old daughter and this is my review:


Sophie la girafe Baby Hair and Body wash.

It claims that Lavender Water and Oat Milk provide gentle cleansing of even sensitive and allergy-prone skin and this was true because me and my daughter both have eczema and our skin was not irritated.

It forms a light lather which is good because too many bubbles tend to irritate our skin.

It has a nice texture to it, it doesnt feel greasy or oily.

My daughter loves the picture of the giraffe on the packaging.



Sophie la girafe Baby Body Lotion

A gentle, moisturizing and nourishing body lotion made especially for baby’s skin.

This is a lovely product which I loved using.
 
And again like the wash, our sensitive eczema prone skin was not irritated. 

I tend to shy away from putting products like this on my daughter because as I'm putting them on her my fingers and hands start to go red and inflamed but this did not happen.

Also I found that a little went a long way and I only used a few pea size amounts.


So overall I was very impressed with both of these products and would definitely recommend them for babies skin but also for all the family if anyone suffers with eczema or sensitive skin.  

See the website above for similar products from this company.

Break out magic lotion

Wonderful for spots, acne, severe eczema, stubborn dermatitis, cracked heels and mystery rashes than resist steroids. The thyme essential oil kills acne bacteria more effectively than benzoyl peroxide, with none of the redness and drying side effects than chemicals can produce.


Breakout magic cleanser


Product description

The cleansing bar contains: goatsmilk, probiotic kefir, coconut oil, olive oil, sustainable palm oil, thyme & tea tree essential oils and organic french facial clay. 

The lotion contains: goatsmilk, probiotic kefir, hazelnut oil, rice bran oil, olive oil and thyme & tea tree essential oils. Note: due to the inclusion of hazelnut oil, this lotion is not appropriate for people with nut allergies.

 Perfect for eczema, spots, stubborn rashes that have resisted steroid creams,  cracked hands and feet.  
This formulation won us our first national award in the FreeFrom SkinCare Awards for Problem skin. The combination of goatsmilk, kefir, thyme and tea tree essential oils does something magic – they have yet to find something it won’t clear, if applied morning and night for three weeks!

A little about this company from their website:

.Natural skincare

I started using natural skincare products  when I became aware of the benefits of natural products; I had developed an irritated scalp which disappeared after using a natural shampoo so I started looking at what was in the products I was using.  After reading an article about using certain vegetable oils to help skin conditions in my massage magazine, I attended courses in natural skincare with Aromantic, (part of the Findhorn Foundation) and started making products for my clients. I got so involved and fascinated that I went on to making them for the general public.   Each product is carefully made with the best natural ingredients for the purpose for which it is intended.

Natural skincare contains vegetable oils and ingredients from natural sources which are easily absorbed by the skin and nurture it; they contain Fatty Acids, vitamins and minerals which stimulate the skin to function better and become healthy and vital.Natural products feed the skin many of the nutrients it needs and do not block the pores, leaving your skin glowing with health. Natural skincare works with the skin,allowing it to breathe and secrete normally. By using different vegetable based oils and active ingredients, skincare products can be made to suit different types of skin.When you consider that the skin is the largest organ in the body it is important what we put on it Many of the chemicals that are used generally in skincare are cheap to produce and appear to give good results, but do not benefit the skin in any way and may be detrimental to it. Two of the most commonly found chemicals are mineral oils and sodium laureth sulphate:  

Mineral Oils :  

Non natural skincare ( and also some natural skincare ) often contains mineral oils (paraffin and vaseline) which soften and protect the skin in the short term by forming a layer on the surface of the skin. However by doing this they may block the pores; this prevents normal functioning of the skin and used for a long time makes the skin dry, lifeless and reliant on the oils. Mineral oils may also enlarge pores allowing blackheads to form.  

Sodium Laureth Sulphate:  

This is a commonly used ingredient in skincare and an efficient cleanser. However it is a very aggressive detergent and its degreasing power is too strong to be used in skincare although it makes very good washing up liquid. Long term use of SLS in skincare, especially shower gels and shampoos, may cause dry, itchy skin and flaky patches

review / full on neem and coconut cream / serendipity herbals / the neemteam / neem oil / eczema

www.theneemteam.co.uk

Full on neem and coconut cream.

 

Product Description

The addition of neem leaf to our Neem & Coconut Cream enhances the formula. Neem is soothing for dry, sensitive skin. Coconut is rich in nutrients essential for skin repair and rehydration. Vitamin E oil is an anti-oxidant, and also supports rough dry skin.
This triple combination is also easily absorbed, leaving the skin feeling smooth but not greasy or sticky. Hygienic pump-action dispenser.

100% natural
 
Ingredients
Cocos nucifera (coconut) cream
Tocopherol (Vitamin E oil)
Botanical extracts of
Azadirachta indica (Neem) Leaf
Cocos nucifera (Coconut)
Prunus amygdalus (Almond)
Vanilla planifolia (Vanilla)
Azadirachta indica (neem) oil *
Cocos nucifera (Coconut) oil
Prunus amygdalus (Almond)* essential oil
* Organically grown
 
Overall I was very impressed with this product. I used it on both mine and my 4 year old daughters skin after a bath.
We both had no adverse reaction to the product. I was particularly impressed with the fact that it did not leave the skin feeling greasy as some similar creams do.
The fragrance is nice and light not too overpowering.
So if you or your children suffer with dry skin or eczema I would recommend this product along with the neem soft wash also available from the neem team.
It is available to purchase for £7.50 for the smaller 100ml bottle or £21 for the larger 400ml bottle.
This company are very prompt at replying to emails and they sent me out my products the same day I had confirmed what I was trying.

A bit about them from their website:
About Us:
The NEEMTEAM evolved out of personal experience. With two young children of school age, it was not long before the problem of head lice reared its' head. Bad publicity surrounding the use of chemical treatments deterred me from using 'over the counter' chemical treatments. What I was really after, was something to stop the persistant recurrance, whereby you no sooner cleared the problem - only to catch it back again.

Quite by chance, we came across information given in an alternative health column, recommending the use of Neem shampoo to prevent head lice. Rather sceptically, we followed this advice, and were amazed to find that it really did work! Head Lice became a thing of the past in our household. We were hugely relieved that this horrible episode had ended. Over the years, we have shared this advice with many other parents in a similar position, and have only received positive feedback from all of them.

Having come from a scientific background (17 years as a Biomedical Scientist), I was intrigued to discover more about Neem, and began my own research project.
A veritable 'journey of discovery' began! Although the Western world has been largely unaware of Neem, Indian culture has been reaping the benefits for over 4000 years! Not only was Neem recognised for its ability to perform as a naturally 'soft' pesticide, it had a wide range of beneficial properties. Many anecdotal claims are now supported by scientific studies. There is a huge amount of information freely available in the public domain, should you wish to conduct your own research. EU legislation does not permit us to give further details of these findings on this website.
Inclusion in creams and body lotions is useful for all skin types, including those with sensitive or dry skin. As part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, neem leaf supplements support overall health, the skin and digestion.

We felt sure that many people in the UK would be receptive to neem as an ingredient in personal care formulae. However, it seemed that most of the suppliers were based either in India or the United States. Very few companies were promoting Neem in the UK.
We decided to source a range of tried and tested formulations which adhered to the standards demanded in the UK ie. Quality Assurance, Organic or ethically produced raw materials, and avoidance of unnecessary chemical additives.

Turning our attention to the US, we discovered Organix South.
Founded by Autumn Blum, the ethos of this company was very similar to our own.
Autumn graduated in Chemistry (specialising in environmental studies), and began work in a traditional cosmetic company. After crossing paths with someone interested in formulating a Neem Oil shampoo, she began researching Neem herself.
Months of research followed. Neem Oil was a very difficult component to work with, and sourcing ethically wildcrafted and Certified Organic Neem in India and Mexico finally resulted in two bona fide sources of supply.
Organix South was founded in May 1998, offering contract manufacturing to companies wanting to introduce Neem products.
Having gained mastery over a variety of these products, Autumn introduced her own retail line in 2001. Organix now offers a wide & ever-expanding range of products.
Autumn stated 'I felt there was a need for a complete family of products, all displayed together, that could properly educate the public about the tremendous uses and benefits of Neem.......It has been tremendously rewarding, my customers tell me stories of how Neem has helped their lives.....we are the primary manufacturer of premium Neem products in the United States'.
Our quest to find a like-minded supplier coincided with Autumn having reached the point where she wanted to expand into the UK. Happily we were appointed the sole UK distributor for the Organix South product range.

Since founding our business in 2003, our product portfolio has expanded to include our own label, UK manufactured 'Serendipity Herbals' range, and also the popular CSJ Billy & Filly No-Mates! for dogs, cats & horses. We continue to specialise in researching & offering our discerning customers the very best in neem. We look forward to celebrating our 10th Anniversary with you in November 2013. With many new and exciting products on offer, we trust that every customers will find what they are looking for, and be delighted with the results.

Organic Skin Care Products

Yin Yang Skincare was born in 1973 when Katie May formulated a range of plant based natural skincare products, free of chemical additives, and often using organic botanical ingredients,  that were designed to work with the skin's own systems of renewal and defence. Pure skincare, effective skincare and affordable skincare - the three principal qualities of our natural skincare products for 36 years. Launched at Cranks iconic "green" store and restaurant on Carnaby Street, London in 1973, Yin Yang Skincare quickly became the natural skin care range of choice for the early advocates of chemical free botanical products.

Human skin is in a constant process of renewal as young fresh cells from the dermis migrate up to the surface epidermal layer to flatten, harden and finally peel off, and all the while the skin is being challenged by hostile external forces ranging from the weather to pollution and man-made chemicals. From the very start, Yin Yang Skincare products have been formulated to nourish & hydrate the skin, and to help maintain & restore the critical balances of acidity and microfloral cover that keep the skin looking healthy and beautiful. Because acidification is important for the maintenance of the skin's barrier function, all Yin Yang skincare products have a pH value of 4.5 – 5.0 which is perfect for the health of the skin’s protective microflora. This so called “acid mantle” is the first line of defence for the skin and the body beneath.

Yin Yang Skincare for Your Daily Skincare Routine

Today you will find Yin Yang Skincare products in stores across the UK which offer natural, organic and health focused product lines. Fragranced with subtle essential oils of citrus and aromatic plants, our delicate creams and refreshing sprays, have been designed to be part of your Essential Skincare Routine.
