guiltless skin natural skincare product review eczema

This is a company that ticks all the boxes for me and my family when it comes to natural skin care.
Guiltless Skin products are handmade in small batches from a small workshop in Essex, England. 
I like the fact that they only make as much as their customers demand which means they don’t compromise the purity of ingredients that have a limited shelf life.
I received three products from guiltless skin. These were:
Organic jojoba soap
Dash of Citrus soap
Organic hemp and shea whipped butter.
A big positive for me is that this company uses all natural products and they don't use any alcohol, sulfates, parabens, silicones, artificial colours or fragrances. The reason this is so important to me is because I have very sensitive skin especially on my hands.
Out of the soaps I think the one with jojoba was more suited to my skin on my hands as I have eczema and as it was unscented I wasn't worried about my eczema flaring up.
For the rest of my body that is not as sensitive I enjoyed using the dash of citrus one. I really liked the lime scent which is really refreshing and a bit different from the usual orange scent with citrus soaps.
Both soaps lather really well and they don't leave that greasy residue that you can sometimes get.
The shea butter was a perfect consistency and absorbed really well into my skin. It is even suitable to use on the lips as a moisturiser and I found if I put a little on in the morning then it lasted for quite a long time through the day.
I also used the shea butter as a barrier for my youngest son to prevent nappy rash and it worked really well.
I had no adverse reaction to any of the products no itchiness or redness and the shea butter actually had a positive effect on the eczema on my hands as it helped to moisturise them.
On their website at the moment they have a few offers on if you buy bundles. One that particularly stood out to me was the four handmade soaps for £10 which is really reasonable.

beauty expression acquarella natural non-toxic nail polish brand new spring colours review

This is the 2nd post of 3 reviews of products from this website that are all natural in origin.
I received a nail polish from the brand Acquarella in one of the new spring colours in the shade poppet. There are over 70 great colours to choose from.
I wasn't aware that conventional nail polishes were originally derived from automotive paint in the early twentieth century which explains why polishes usually contain a lot of chemicals. On the other side of the scale this brand is completely non-toxic so it contains no petro-chemicals or nasty fumes and is actually water-based.
These polishes are not tested on animals and this is recognised by PETA.


I let my six year old girl have a little play with it because it is perfectly safe for even toddlers to use. It is even safe to use during pregnancy as there are no toxic fumes to deal with. My daughter actually noticed that it doesn't smell horrible like normal nail varnishes. 
This is with just one coat and no base coat or topper which I think is quite impressive. It dries to touch in just a few minutes and is dry for use after about 20 minutes.
My favourite thing with these nail varnishes is that if you do make a mistake it is so easy just to wipe off and start again.
So I would definitely recommend this brand primarily for its low toxic smell and also its quick drying time.

beauty expression natural sensitive skin eczema skincare review QMilk

This is the first of 3 blog posts I will be doing featuring products from this website which has a wide array of products that are natural and suitable for sensitive skin.

The first set of products I received was from the brand QMilk. This is a German skincare brand that is natural and handmade. I was very interested to see on their website that they even make clothes out of milk protein which is incredible.

I received a natural peeling cream and I really like the concept of this cream. It contains biopolymer beads from milk which cleanses old skin cells and protects the upper skin layer. The genuine rose petals wax protects the skin after peeling.

The beads dissolve without residue and don't clog the pores. You only have to put it on for 10-20 seconds and straight away after first use the skin feels deeply cleansed.

I have very sensitive skin especially on my face and I also have eczema so this was a perfect combination for my skin because it was exfoliating but did not irritate. I had no reaction to the cream, no itchiness or redness.

I also received a lip gloss and I really liked the consistency of it. It wasn't sticky and it absorbed really well and you can use it on its own or as a base layer or as a topcoat with a lipstick its so versatile.

Like the cream, the lip gloss contains no chemicals or artificial ingredients it is 100% natural. The products are not tested on animals and have been tested by medical practitioners and their patients.

So these products tick all the boxes for me and I highly recommend this skincare line.
