Herbal Gypsies products are 100% natural plant based, just like nature their products are down to earth simplistic. The ingredients are super simple which makes a real pure and gentle skincare line. Branding always gets me excited when it's super fun and the first thing I noticed about the Herbal Gypsies products was the packaging, it's so cool with the adorable little drawings. I have recently been trying out the Herbal Gypsies Rain Dance Toner which is a heavenly refreshing toner, it contains Rose water which is not only great in food but it is also amazingly beneficial to your skin. Rose water revitalizes, hydrates and moisturizes while maintaining skins natural PH. It also contains Pure witch-hazel which is designed to help control blemishes by fighting inflammation and controlling excess oil. 
Herbal Gypsies products are designed to nourish and cleanse the skin with a less is more philosophy, natural, pure and simple. Every ingredient serves a purpose to help keep the skin healthy an clear, there are no harsh irritants to worry about with the Herbal Gypsies range which is great. Unlike other toners that contain alcohol, the Rain Dance Toner removes any excess residue on my face while still nourishing and hydrating my skin. The formula is refreshing on the skin, it's super gentle and feels very cooling. It has a lovely calming scent and I really enjoy using this both morning and night as part of my every day skincare routine. The Herbal Gypsies Rain Dance Toner leaves my skin feeling super fresh, clean and smooth to touch after use, it's refreshing formula feels great on the skin. I love that this toner not only provides moisture for my skin but so many other benefits to help fight against blemishes. I love a good toner and this one is definitely a keeper, if you have blemish prone skin and are on the hunt for a super effective reasonable priced toner then I highly recommend checking out the Herbal Gypsies natural skincare range.

Eve Lom Eye Cream

 I'm back with another luxury product review from the Eve Lom skincare range. I recently reviewed the Eve Lom Intense Firming Serum which you can check out here. Eve Lom are one of my top skincare brands and I absolutely love every single product I have tried and still continue to use. I have recently been using the Eve Lom Eye Cream which has a triple action formula which is designed to reduce puffiness around the eyes, diminish dark circles, and lock-in moisture, resulting in brighter, younger looking eyes. This little gem is packed with beneficial ingredients which include Echium seed oil for its rejuvenating omega 3 and 6, Sodium hyaluronate for long-lasting hydration, Shea butter and rose hip oil to reduce fine lines, Ginseng-derived jiaogulan to enhance blood circulation and reduce puffiness around the eyes, Swiss garden cress extract, which will encourage an even skin tone and last but not least Peptides to reduce dark circles and inflammation, and to firm the skin.
 Eve Lom produce fine quality products that nourish and treat the skin at a high level. The Eve Lom Eye Cream comes in the cutest most chic looking white glass pot with rose gold detailing.. I'm obsessed with it, the glass pot is also the perfect size for travelling so I will definitely be taking this on the go with me this Summer. The Eve Lom Eye Cream is packed with intensively concentrated actives to revitalise the eye contour area. The Shea Butter locks in moisture which promotes long lasting hydration as well as brightening and toning the eye area. We all want to say farewell to those dark circles and puffiness and hello to hydrated, rejuvenated, younger looking skin. I have been using this for around two months now and absolutely love the results. I simply use a small amount under my eyes and gently dap it into my skin, I do this both morning and night to ensure my under eye area is receiving long lasting hydration.
The Eve Lom Eye Cream has a lovely texture, it's silky smooth and I love that it easily absorbs into the skin without leaving any greasiness under the eyes. As mentioned I do use this day and night as I absolutely love it and I have seen great results since using it. My under eye area looks a lot brighter and super moisturised and I have noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin. This luxurious and rich cream is so light weight but yet it deeply penetrates the skin leaving it feel so soft and supple. The Eve Lom Eye Cream is on the pricey side but if you do have the money to splurge on a decent luxurious everyday eye cream you should do so on this one. The Eve Lom Eye Cream is the perfect double daily treatment for my under eye area. You can purchase the Eve Lom Eye Cream at

The Body Shop Drops Of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream

I am a huge fan of The Body Shop products and have been longing for a new day time moisturiser. So I have recently been trying out The Body Shop Drops Of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream which is one of four products in the Drops Of Light range. The line is accumulated with four different products which include the Pure Clarifying Foam Wash, Pure Translucency Essence, the Pure Healthy Brightening Serum and the Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream. The Body Shop have created this range for women to feel good in their own skin, the Drops Of Light range is a daily regime which is enriched with red algae and Vitamin C to help skin appear brighter and more luminous. The packaging is super luxurious.. the tub itself is glass and solid built which is great, I absolutely love the white against the rose gold label it looks chic and classy. So what makes this line unique? Well it's suitable for all skin types so even if you have sensitive skin you can give this range a go. The Drops Of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream is packed with natural ingredients such as North Atlantic Red Algae which is an extract that helps to brighten the skin and gives it a healthier glow. It also contains Vitamin C which is an amazing ingredient that is used to help get rid of both dark spots and hyper pigmentation. 
I have been using this for around one month now and can honestly say the results are amazing. The texture of the cream is silky and feels quite thick and heavy but once it's rubbed into the skin it feels as light as a feather. I love that it melts into my skin instantly without leaving a greasy residue. I simply massage a pea sized amount into my face and neck after the Drops Of Light Serum. This jar of goodness is proven to significantly reduce the number of dark spots and pigmentation, which I can honestly say I do stand by. Since using the Drops Of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream my skin feels smoother, it appears plumper and more even toned. I absolutely love applying this as my day time cream, I love the natural glow it gives which makes it the perfect cream to prime my face with before applying makeup. My key focus is to hydrate my skin while giving it a natural glow and that's exactly what The Body Shop Drops Of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream does.

PUR Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation

I've recently been trying out the PUR Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation which is designed to give you a flawless mineral coverage, it's lightweight feel and no mess application makes it super easy to apply. The 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder is a foundation, concealer, powder and SPF 15 all in one which sounds amazing, all of the ingredients have been clinically proven to correct, prevent and interrupt your biggest skin concerns even after the makeup comes off. I've read great reviews on the PUR Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Powder Foundation but I was a bit sceptical on what made it so unique so of course I had to try it out. So what makes the PUR 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation so unique.. It's in fact vegan-friendly and paragon free, it contains Waltheria Extract which naturally brightens the look of dark spots and discolouration for a more even skin tone. I have the shade Light which I was very pleased with, sometimes it's hard to find a shade pale enough for me so I was super happy when this matched me perfectly. The PUR Mineral Powder comes in the perfect size compact which also includes a mirror.. super handy. I personally love the packaging, it's practical, sturdy and pretty. When it comes to Mineral Foundation, the denser the brush the fuller coverage you will achieve, now I truly do believe this so I like to apply this with my Zoeva 104 Buffer Brush I personally think this helps me to achieve a flawless medium coverage look, I highly recommend using a dense brush with a flat top when using the PUR Minerals Pressed Powder.
The benefit's of using a pressed mineral foundation is that it's a lot less messy and super easy to apply on the go. I have been using this every single day since it's got slightly warmer here in London, I really like how it feels on my skin as well as how it looks. I love when I first apply it, it looks super fresh and flawless. It gives a lovely subtle natural coverage and is the perfect foundation for summer time as it also contains SPF. It's super lightweight, not cake or powdery.. which is always a plus. I find that the PUR Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation instantly brightens up and evens out my skin tone while making my skin look naturally smooth and flawless with a light to medium coverage. The Pur pressed mineral pigment delivers a flawless, breathable coverage for all skin tones and types, while the proprietary Ceretin complex helps smooth, firm and lift the skin's appliance for an ageless complexion. It last's all day long and still looks the same as when I first applied it which I absolutely love. I personally see myself wearing this every single day in the summertime, it's lightweight, looks natural and contains SPF. I highly recommend checking out the PUR Minerals range, be sure to let me know if there are any products you love and would recommend me trying out.

Swell Ultimate Volume Shampoo & Conditioner

Swell haircare have been on my wish list for some time now so I was super excited to try out a from products from the Swell range. Swell haircare was created by Jonathan Stallick and Andrew Bidwell, they developed an amazing hair range to help the huge number of people with fin, limp and thinning hair. I have recently been trying out and loving the Swell Ultimate Volume Shampoo and the Swell Advanced Volumizing Conditioner. I personally have a lot of hair but it's still quite fine and I hardly get any volume at all but since using these two dreamy products together my hair has been looking super healthy and my hair has a lot more bounce to it. I'm amazed and I can absolutely tell the difference after the first use, not only does my hair have more volume it looks a lot healthier too swell as well smelling divine.The Swell Ultimate Volume Shampoo is a 97% natural, vegan friendly shampoo it is also free from SLS, Silicones and Parabens, and it's safe for coloured treated hair, which is always a plus. I absolutely love the scent of this shampoo it has a lovely fresh scent to it and my hair smell absolutely divine after use. The shampoo comes in a bottle (250ml) with a pump which I personally prefer as it allows me to use the right amount of product to cover my whole hair without wasting any down the drain, I tend to use 6 pumps as my hair is quite long but of course this will vary depending on how fine your hair is. The Swell Ultimate Volume Shampoo is SLS free I wasn't expecting it to lather up much but I was quite surprised when it started to foam up when massaging it into my hair. My hair instantly felt super clean and a lot more manageable after use.The Swell Advanced Volumizing Conditioner is also 97% natural and vegan friendly swell as being free from SLS, Silicones and Parabens. The conditioner also smells amazing, it has a lovely fresh scent matching the shampoo, my bathroom smells divine after a pamper night in using this little gems. I tend to use 5 pumps to cover the mid length and ends of my hair, I will let the conditioner soak into my hair and leave it for around 5 minutes to give it a little extra tlc. The Swell Advanced Volumizing Conditioner is concentrated so a little honestly goes a long way and I see this lasting a good amount of time. My hair feels super healthier and nourished after use, I notice that my hair feels thicker, healthier and has more volume. 

I'm super impressed with the Swell Ultimate Volume Shampoo and the Swell Advanced Volumizing Conditioner and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has fine hair and is looking for more that extra bit of volume. You can check out the full range of Swell haircare at
