T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house… you could smell this Lush Christmas Eve Bubble Bar (Review)

Long ass title, but I couldn’t resist. Anyone feeling ready for Christmas yet, or still feeling broke and bah humbug? In the old days, Christmas was such an exciting time, but sadly as an adult I just get more and more broke every year. In part, that’s down to my Lush addiction, but hey ho … More T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house… you could smell this Lush Christmas Eve Bubble Bar (Review)

This is Halloween: Lush Lord of Misrule Shower Cream Review

That’s right folks, it’s time to get your pumpkins out and don your best, cheap AF Wilko witch costume. It’s Halloween and that means a night of eating all things orange – and probably drinking off-coloured beverages, too, wishing you were still young enough to go trick or treating. Lush releases a small Halloween range … More This is Halloween: Lush Lord of Misrule Shower Cream Review

You’ll smell like Grandmas: Lush Happy Happy Joy Joy Review

In an attempt to sort of grow up (maybe), my style and sense of smell is evolving. I seem to be going through outfits a mile a minute these days… so check out my eBay page, because my once-loved garments usually end up there. Anyway, I read on Buzzfeed (i.e. Millennials ‘R’ Us) that I … More You’ll smell like Grandmas: Lush Happy Happy Joy Joy Review

Perspiration Ting: The Greeeeench Deodorant/Dusting Powder Lush Review

In my quest to find the perfect ‘natural’ deodorant, I have been testing out pretty much all of Lush’s deodorant range. Aromaco is my favourite, but I’ve become used to the lovely patchouli scent now, so I cannot enjoy how great I smell. Others still can, but my days of sniffing my own underarms for … More Perspiration Ting: The Greeeeench Deodorant/Dusting Powder Lush Review

The opposite of a tangle-teaser: Body Shop Rainforest Conditioner Review

Following on from my experience with the Rainforest Shampoo, you might be wanting to know how the conditioner went down with me. You probably aren’t, as I doubt anyone waits with bated breath for a blog post, but you never know. To recap, I felt that while non-sulphate and paraben products *might* be better for … More The opposite of a tangle-teaser: Body Shop Rainforest Conditioner Review

Sulphates (might) suck, but they work: Body Shop Rainforest Shampoo Review

The jury still seems to be out on whether sulphates are bad. The chemical ingredients commonly found in shampoos, cleaning products and soaps – sodium laureth (and lauryl) sulphate – have been demonised A LOT online recently. They do appear to be damaging for your hair if you wash it every day, as they trap … More Sulphates (might) suck, but they work: Body Shop Rainforest Shampoo Review

Scrub-a-dub-dub: Superdrug Vitamin E Facial Scrub review

Imaginative title, I know. I’m sorry. As any vegan/cruelty free person knows, Superdrug’s own brand products are usually clearly labelled vegetarian/vegan, and their products are cruelty-free accredited. They have the leaping bunny logo to prove it! As one of the most widely available and cheapest cruelty-free out there, it’s a real lifesaver. Additionally, they try … More Scrub-a-dub-dub: Superdrug Vitamin E Facial Scrub review

Smells better than deer testicles: Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Toilette Review

I didn’t used to like buying from the Body Shop. Until recently, they were owned by L’oreal – so although they didn’t test on animals, their parent company did. If you’re really trying to live a more ethical lifestyle, this is a no no. It also went against pretty much everything its founder, Anita Roddick, … More Smells better than deer testicles: Body Shop Red Musk Eau de Toilette Review

Pink and Greasy: Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner Review

Just to clarify, “pink and greasy” is NOT a description of my complexion – though you could be forgiven for thinking so – I am in fact talking about this very unique product. Snow Fairy is one of Lush’s most popular ranges, but it’s only out around Christmas time, because apparently we don’t want our … More Pink and Greasy: Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner Review
