Scienea Superfruit Anti Ageing Serum

Scienea Superfruit Anti Ageing Serum is manufactured in the UK and prides itself on using only natural ingredients to create skincare products with proven results to aid skin issues such as ageing, repairing and restoring skin.

The Superfruit Anti Ageing Serum is packed full of over 20 natural ingredients including Pomegrante Oil, Apricot Oil, Rosehip Oil, Sunflower, Flax Seed Oil, Rasberry Oil, Pumpkin  Oil and Strawberry Oil to name just a few, that penetrate deeply into the skin to help to reduce fine lines as well as smooth and enhance the firmness of the skin.  With over two years of research to come up with the final product I had high hopes for the performance of this serum.

It’s so simple to apply and using your fingertips you can just massage the serum onto a clean skin and allow it to penetrate through the pores to get to work. It has a lightweight easy flowing texture and is best left for a couple of minutes to sink in before applying moisturiser but perfect to use as part of your daily skin care routine.

I found the product to be really easy to use and it just glided across the skin leaving it feeling ultra hydrated and enriched.  It really smooths the feel of your skin and leaves it looking fresh and youthful.  I’m really enjoying using the Scienea Superfruit Anti Ageing Serum and feel that my skin is plumper and soft to touch. I hope the results over time help to maintain a youthful glow across my skin as in just a few weeks it certainly feels good and is a pleasure to use.

Why not try out the Scienea serums for yourself – available in Superfruit for Anti Ageing or Superberry for Repairing & Restoring the skin.

Herbal Essences bio:renew Shampoos and Conditioners

Herbal Essences bio:renew haircare is a range of natural shampoos and conditioners packed full of some amazing natural ingredients with various properties to suit all your hair needs.

Containing % parabens, silicones, gluten and colourants they really are natural and are literally clear or white in colour which I actually prefer. They are bursting with fragrance and I couldn’t wait to get them on my hair to try out.

Available in the following fragrance combinations:

  • Argan Oil of Morocco
  • Coconut Milk
  • White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint
  • Golden Moringa Oil
  • Cucumber & Green Tea
  • Rosemary & Herbs
  • White Strawberry & Sweet Mint

First up I was drawn to the Rosemary & Herbs being in a lilac bottle and I wasn’t disappointed!

Packed full of multi-layered scents of infused herbs, clean mint and sandalwood along with a blend of essential antioxidant, aloe and sea kelp this left my hair feeling ultra fresh, clean and soft.  It certainly didn’t leave any build up or residue to my hair felt light and renewed  – this is currently my favourite and one I’ll go back to!

White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint is bursting with fruity fragrance and helps boost volume. Again this is fresh and renewing and really depends on your preference of fragrance as to which you prefer.

Coconut Milk is really hydrating and does actually smell really lovely even though I’m not a huge coconut fan.  It really nourishes the hair and I have to say was the favourite with all my friends and family who gave it a try.

Overall I’m really impressed with the Herbal Essences bio:renew range and being honest it’s not a brand I’d probably have bought before trying it out over the last few weeks.  The bottles are a fantastic size making them great value and the products are really natural being clear or white in colour but still bursting with fragrance.  The Rosemary & Herbs from Herbal Essences has won me over although lots of my friends love the Coconut Milk so there really is something for everyone – why not give them a try yourself today?

Feel Good Infusions – 100% Natural Summer Drinks

The Infusions range from Feel Good Drinks consists of lightly infused water to give it a gentle flavour using 100% natural ingredients.  A new addition to the Feel Good Drinks range are the infusions which sit alongside the other 100% natural still flavoured drinks and also the ones with a few bubbles.

The Infusions range consists of:

  • Lemon & Elderflower
  • Strawberry & Mint
  • Apple & Rose

Each just contains water and natural flavourings meaning they are only 5 calories per 100ml.

So what did we think of the Feel Good Drinks?

Well I had a bunch of family and friends around to try them out with me and the lighter infusions range definitely appealed to the females whilst the men preferred the standard still drinks such as Orange & Mango.

We all found the drinks to be incredibly refreshing and grown up in flavour with the subtle hints of interesting flavours.  Apple & Rose was my favourite with it’s delicate apple flavour and a hint of rose.  Best served chilled these flavours are definitely a twist on the usual flavours you see and were a pleasant experience on the palate.

Lemon & Elderflower proved one of the most popular combinations in our group of tasters, being a great drink for a Summers afternoon!

Have you had a chance to try these out yet?  I’ve spotted them in my local Morrison’s but believe they are also available at Asda, Sainsbury’s, Co-op and Waitrose so check them out if you are looking for something light, refreshing with a bit of a twist!

Vegan Beauty Must Haves for Spring

The world of cruelty free and vegan beauty has come a long way in the last few years and I’ve been lucky to try out some amazing products that will be perfect to fit into your Spring beauty regime.  From various brands, all of these products stand out for me with premium ingredients and high quality results that leave the products desireable to use and a pleasure to place on my skin.  Not only that, they look gorgeous on your dressing table too!

*************************************

jojoba and rosehip oil bottle

The Jojoba company 100% natural Jojoba and Rosehip Oil is a multipurpose oil, perfect for hair and skin.  The combination of ingredients is crucial to the benefits in that they help deliver the product to the deeper layers of your skin where it is really needed.  By massaging 2-3 drops onto clean damp skin the product is absorbed and nourishes where needed.  I loved using this before bed to really hydrate my skin as I’ve found with age I get dry around the chin area.  I love to let this work it’s magic overnight for a really healthy glow and thoroughly moisturised skin in the morning.  The bottle is stunning by the way – you won’t forget to put this on, because it’s a must have on your dressing table!

*************************************

Embryolisse is a French brand I’ve used before with their Radiant Eye Cooling Stick so I knew the quality would be good.  I don’t normally use a CC cream, just foundation so thought this would be interesting to try out.  The product has colour adapting technology and literally changes on your skin to suit your tone and colour.  With SPF 20 included and high coverage I absolutely love this product and was amazed at how well it applied to my face.  It covered all my blemishes, is moisturising, left my skin fresh, glowing and blurred away those fine lines – definitely a replacement for my current foundation.

*************************************

The Superfruit Complex 10 in 1 Multi-Benefit Hair Masque from Shea Moisture is a luxurious treat for your hair that leaves it ultra soft, shiny, nourished, strengthened and more.  I found this easy to use in the shower by applying then letting the water run down my back while the hair masque worked it’s magic before rinsing off.  As you put your fingers through to rinse, you can feel that your hair is so smooth and soft, it feels fabulous, like a real treat and worth doing once a week when you have a few minutes to prevent dry, ageing hair.

*************************************

No Bleeding Lips from Know Cosmetics is a secret lip liner, clear in colour that can be applied around the edge of lips before lipstick or gloss to prevent bleeding.  I found this super soft and easy to apply, leaving me with a well defined lip line and lipstick that looked well applied. Definitely a staple for the make up bag!

Amla & Clary Sage Shower and Bath Gel from AA Skincare

AA Skincare prides itself on it’s products being full of natural ingredients and the best quality essential oils so I was keen to try the Amla & Clary Sage Shower and Bath Gel.  With a busy lifestyle it’s nice to get my 5 minutes of me time in the shower and indulge in a luxury shower gel full of premium ingredients, that also benefit from being vegan.

The ingredients in this are suitable and appealing to my skin with Amla (also known as Indian Gooseberry) which is packed full of natural antioxidants to help your skin glow, just what I need especially in this colder weather.  Clary Sage essential oil is included which helps balance out oily complexions and reduce the signs of breakouts and the addition of Lemon Oil is refreshing, cleansing and adds to the fragrance.

I found the Amla & Clary Sage shower gel from AA Skincare to be very gentle and cleansing, with a good foaming action to cleanse my skin.  It smelt really invigorating and fresh, perfect for a morning wake up shower gel.  My skin was left soft and clean and throughly refreshed after a nights sleep, leaving me energised and ready for the day ahead!

YOU Home Cleaning Products – Review

YOU home cleaning products are naturally powered using 100% plant based products.  With products available for the kitchen, bathroom, windows and all purpose cleaner, there really is something to cover the whole house.

youI received the kitchen and bathroom cleaners to put to the test and I’m immediately drawn to the bottle.  They come in large clear spray bottles, with the liquid inside being clear too.  Each product has as different coloured label making them instantly recognisable.  I really like the packaging and have to say it’s very eco friendly too.  A unique concept with these products is that they are refillable which you don’t usually see with bottles of household cleaning fluids.

you 2These rather cute refills are simply screwed onto the top of the bottles when empty along with water to create a whole new bottle of cleaning fluid.  It’s estimated that the high quality trigger will last for at least 10,000 sprays, meaning you should be able to refill each bottle at least 10-15 times.  The small size of the refills are ideal for storing at home and means less big bottles to bring home from the supermarket!

you 3I’m really impressed with the trigger on these bottles, you can see they are sturdy and well made.  What I like is the lift up flap which when open allows for a standard spray to come out, and when the flap is closed it produces a foam, great when more product is needed for heavy duty cleaning.

I’ve enjoyed using the YOU cleaning sprays.  They are simple to use and I have found both to be effective.  The kitchen spray really does work and is more powerful than I expected from a clear looking spray.  I loved the foam action which worked well on my hob and the spray was great for round the sink and worktops.

The window spray was also brilliant and comes with claims that it is smear free.  I can assure that it most definitely is and one wipe of a cloth and it the window was left immediately shiny, not a hint of a smear.  This is great and something that we get used regularly having young children and lots of sticky fingers touching the windows all the time!

Overall I’ve loved using the YOU naturally powered products and they have been a great addition to to my cleaning cupboard.  I’d definitely recommend giving them a try and don’t forget about those handy refills!
