AVON PORE PENETRATING BLACK MINERAL CLEANSER REVIEW


AVON is a brand a lot of people overlook; it gets shrugged off any time I mention it and a lot of people still have this misconception of it being a dated brand but that's definitely not the case. They definitely have upped their game in recent years and are making products to rival mainstream brands.

TUMMY TUESDAY - THE FINAL COUNTDOWN PREGNANCY UPDATE


It's the final countdown for me now. When this goes live, it will be 3 weeks exactly to my due date. I honestly never thought I would get to this point; it always seemed like something that would happen in the very distant future. It's really hit me that I'm going to be a Mum in a few weeks. I am going to be a Mum and be responsible for a teeny tiny baby! It really does blow my mind.

SUPERNATURAL BEAUTY REDEMPTION FACE OIL REVIEW

beauty, review, skincare, organic skincare, natural skincare, Supernatural Beauty, Supernatural Beauty Redemption Face oil

As you may know, I've been trying to widen my beauty horizons since being pregnant and I've been taking more notice of what I'm putting on my skin and looking into natural products and brands; if these sorts of products interest you, you need to check out Annabel's blog, HelloAnnabel as she only blogs about natural, organic and cruelty-free beauty. It's actually because of Annabel that I got to try these products from Supernatural Beauty as she reviewed them on her blog and also had a giveaway - so big thank you to Annabel!

Supernatural Beauty is a relatively new brand that was created by Jenny and their philosophy is all about using natural and organic ingredients. This means no nasties (at all!) in their products; all of Supernatural Beauty's products are free from parabens, petroleum, sulphates (SLS & SLES) xenoestrogen, phthalates, artifical colourants, synthetic fragrence, petrochemicals, harsh detergents, silicones, propylene glycol, GMOS, PEGS, TEA & DEA, toxic ingredients and animal testing! It's scary how long this list is considering these ingredients are probably in the majority of products and, really, how many of us read the ingredients list on our skincare?

ARBONNE INTERNATIONAL MAKEUP PRIMER REVIEW


I think back on the days when I didn't use a primer for my foundation and shudder as I remember looking at myself in the mirror halfway through the day and seeing that half my makeup had migrated south of where I had applied it. Since that time, I have become (somewhat) wiser and now I ensure I always have a primer in my makeup stash because, with my skin type, it would be silly to not have one. Arbonne International was not a brand I had heard of until fairly recently and I was very happy when they sent me the Arbonne International Makeup Primer* (full size £27) to try. (As you can see, I received a sample size of the primer but I did receive two of this size and, after a few uses, I still haven't touched the second one as a little goes a long way.)

OUR PRAM: MOTHERCARE ORB PRAM & PUSHCHAIR



One of the biggest things you have to buy when having a baby is, of course, their pram. You want one that's good quality, long lasting with a guarantee (just in case) and, preferably, one that is a travel system so you're not having to buy the individual bits and bobs on top of the cost of the pram.
