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.
