Fashion Revolution Week, brand report. Where can we shop ??

This report looks into to top 200 clothing brands in the UK. Lots of companies didn’t respond, but the ones that did we required to answer questions on supply chains, environmental impacts and so on. Definitely have a look for yourself, and work out where you’re willing to buy:   But in summary, the brands…

May Lindstrom Problem Solver: REVIEW

The brand: American, organic, luxury, expensive. The product: A clay mask. Well, the powder part. You add the water in and it’s an active clay mask. Who can use it: People with a thick skin and willingness for a bit of a burn. Avoid if you’re sensitive, rosacea, prone to redness. Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?:…

Skincare routine, when skin is spotty (cruelty free)

This is my go-to routine when my skin is at it’s worst. Stubborn acne, spots that are red and sore, usually caused by hormones. If I’ve eaten too much dairy, about to start my period or my skin has just decided to be spotty I take a bit of extra care. I avoid my more…

trench coat style

This much loved staple is synonymous with Burberry, who – because of ethics – are best avoided. Remember when last year we found out about stock being burned, all the name of brand protection? Get your modern coat fix elsewhere, (think: Whistles, Paskal and Kassl) and feast your eyes with some style inspiration centered around…

Pixi, Glow Mud Cleanser: REVIEW

The brand: Widely available, always been cruelty free, you know em! The product: Clay based cleanser. They say; ‘active yet gentle cleanser with 5% glycolic acid’. Active and gentle, which is true: but quite contradicting terms don’t you think? Who can use it: All skins, unless you’re very sensitive to glycolic acid. Cruelty Free Status/…

Glasses and Sunglasses Inspiration!

This fleeting moment of sun in the UK has had me pining after sunglasses. I love big fat plastic frames, and wearing coat with my sunnies on, it makes me feel like a proper fashion editor gal! Here are some that have caught my eye! xxx   From Le Specs: The Last Lolita £75 From…

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm: REVIEW

The brand: British, well known for this cleanser. Cruelty free (obvs) The product: Balm cleanser Who can use it: If you’re really acneic then maybe give it a miss, but my spot prone skin loves it mostly. Other than that, anyone can use. Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?: Fully CF, PETA approved. Not vegan (this balm…

Balance Me, Congested Skin Range

The Congested range at Balance Me is a particular highlight for me. I’m massively impressed with the products, which tackles blemishes whilst remaining loyal to ‘natural’ ingredients. Often when I think of ‘congested skin’ products I think salicylic acid and alcohol, but these products are a great alternative to this. You might like to look…

Beauty Pie, is a subscription worth it?

In my mind, Beauty Pie is the only beauty subscription box that makes any sort of sense because you actually get to choose what you get. Most subscription services work like a lucky dip, in which you end up paying a lot of money for something that you might like. Personally, I wouldn’t waste my…

Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Skin Perfecting Liquid, REVIEW

The brand: American, chemical (in a good way), very well known for their range of exfoliators. The product: Salicylic acid toning liquid Who can use it: This is specifically for combination/oily skins. I would say it’s gentle enough for anyone. Ingredients: Aqua, Methylpropanediol (hydration), Butylene Glycol (hydration), Salicylic Acid (Beta Hydroxy Acid, exfoliant), Polysorbate 20…
