Electric Ink Daily Moisturiser Review

Today I’m reviewing a new vegan skincare brand, specifically for all of your tattoo care needs: the Electric Ink – Daily Moisturiser. Scroll on down to read more! ☺

(Quick disclaimer: I do not have any tattoos, so I tried out the daily moisturiser on my skin as I would with any other moisturiser.)

Who are Electric Ink? 💉

When your body is a canvas and tattoos are your artwork, it’s important to take care of them. With Electric Ink Skincare, tattoo and skin care couldn’t be easier – their specialist products are packed with ingredients that keep skin looking nourished and tattoos looking fresh and vibrant.
All Electric Ink Skincare products contain a mixture of oils and vitamins that work to nourish the skin and protect the tattoo, as well as improving the definition of the tattoos and keep them from looking faded. Every product can be easily incorporated into an established skin care routine.

All the Electric Ink products are all made in the U.K, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and available to buy from Boots.

Daily Moisturiser

The Daily Moisturiser hydrates and soothes dry skin, helping to protect ink from fading and discolouration with a selected blend of effective ingredients.

The moisturiser contains:

  • Liftonin-Xpert to help reduce signs of skin redness and support the maintenance and intensity of tattoo ink.
  • Inca Inchi Oil is obtained from a Peruvian Amazonia plant, which helps to improve skin elasticity and maintains skin hydration.
  • Vitamin E Acetate assists with increasing the moisturisation of the skin’s surface and helps to prevent the signs of sun damage.
  • Coconut Oil has great moisturising abilities and its light texture is ideal for dry skin.

At the back on the box, you can see that the box is recyclable and that the PAO symbol (period-after-opening) says that you can use it for 6 months after opening.

It’s normally priced at £10.95 for 200ml, but right now it’s on offer for £7.30 at Boots.

Review

First of all, I have to mention the packaging – I love it, it would definitely draw my attention when shopping.

Initially, I used the moisturiser after I used the Electric Ink – Exfoliating Body Wash in the shower. The moisturiser smells almost the same as the body wash. Generally, the moisturiser is quite lightweight and lasted throughout the day.

While it does keep my skin hydrated, I’m not particularly a fan of the way that the smell kind of lingers. It’s kind of a shame that the coconut oil is not as prominent in the moisturiser, otherwise I might have liked it a little more.

Since this range is specifically created for tattoo care, and I don’t have any tattoos, I feel that my review might be a little limited – having said that, the moisturiser worked well on skin, so I can only imagine how well it works on tattoos.

I would love to know if any of you have tried out this range already, or what your thoughts are after using the product, and how well it works to maintain your tattoos and skin.

Once again, thank you to the lovely Catalyst PR team for sending me this sample.

Electric Ink Exfoliating Body Wash Review

These past few weeks I have been so productive, I’ve achieved almost all of my goals for this month in terms of my work, at home and even with this blog. And I’ve hit a new milestone on my Instagram – yay!

Review

First of all, I have to mention the packaging – I love it, it would definitely draw my attention when shopping.

On first use, I noticed that that the body wash has a citrus scent but also smells slightly of the amino acid. I could feel small sugar-like granules in the light yellow body wash. As I don’t have any tattoos, and used it directly on my skin, I noticed that it thoroughly polishes and exfoliates the skin.

After getting out of the shower, my skin felt and looked smoother – it really works well with removing and exfoliating the dead skin. I couldn’t stop feeling my arm after getting out of the shower, in fact the day after using the exfoliating body wash my skin was still just as smooth as it was the night before.

Honestly, I don’t think I’ve done this review any justice because I don’t have any tattoos – nevertheless this product has worked amazingly on my skin!

I would love to know if any of you have  tried it out already, or what your thoughts are after using the product, and how well it works to maintain your tattoos and skin.

Thank you to the lovely Catalyst PR team for sending me this sample, I hope you enjoyed my review.

Alchemy Oils Amla Hair Remedy Review

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of the self-care kit that I got from Alchemy Oils on Instagram. Since I got the kit, I was trying everything out, and decided to write a review on the Alchemy Oils Amla Hair Remedy. Last year, I did a couple of reviews on the Alchemy Oils products and was generally impressed with the quality of their oils and this year Alchemy Oils have redesigned the packaging of their products.

(If you haven’t already – follow me on instagram! @kindcultureuk)

A post shared by Kind Culture (@kindcultureuk) on

A little about Alchemy Oils

Alchemy Oils specialises in creating effective, natural hair care solutions and hair oil. Combining the age-old Ayurvedic practice of hair oiling from India; where they use oils in scalp massage (which increases blood flow to the scalp) for a deep conditioning treatment, with Western hair styling sensibilities (oil/serum hybrids to smooth fly aways, add shine and heat protect). The brand also caters for all hair types that includes afro hair.

All of the products are do not contain any parabens, PEGS, phthalates, sulphates, silicones, mineral oil, glycols, DEA or TEA. Alchemy Oils are registered with the Vegan Society and also certified by Peta as cruelty-free.

Alchemy Oils Amla Hair Remedy

Made with a combination of Amla, Coconut, Avocado, and Argan oils topped off with a splash of Lemon Essential Oil to naturally cleanse. These all work in sync to fight premature greying, promote growth and impart a lustrous shine.

Amla, Indian Gooseberry, is a powerful hair tonic known to stimulate the hair follicle to encourage growth. It nourishes the hair shaft, adding strength and sheen, and cleanses the scalp to prevent dandruff, providing a perfect environment for long and healthy hair. Featuring a number of essential fatty acids, Amla oil is known to strengthen the hair follicles and condition the hair. Amla oil penetrates the scalp and can help treat dry, itchy scalp and along with vitamin C, Amla is also very rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants carry anti-ageing mechanisms which can prevent hair from premature greying.

The Amla Hair Remedy is £38 for 50ml, and is available to buy online on the Alchemy Oils website and through many other stockists.

Review

I love the redesign, the new drop bottles are much easier to open, meaning that I won’t have to worry about accidentally spilling oil. In the past, I used amla oil that left a pungent smell that really lingered. Thankfully, I couldn’t smell the amla in this hair remedy, it actually has more of a citrus smell, the combinations of the oils has such a calming effect. The oil does feel quite thick & rich.

Initially, I massaged the oil on my scalp and hair, leaving it to soak in before washing it. I left the oil for about 2-3 hours in my hair. While washing my hair, I noticed that the oil is quite rich and I may have put too much oil on my hair so I washed it out twice.

After washing my hair and drying my hair, my hair was visibly more shiny, and healthy looking. It felt so much more smoother. Even after a couple of days had passed, my hair was still quite smooth. It leaves my hair nourished and has the same high-quality finish as the grapefruit hair remedy. ✨

Thank you the amazing Alchemy Oils team for sending me the Amla Hair Remedy (and the self-care set).

Lush Twilight Body Spray & Bath Bomb

Lush Twilight Body Spray Review

The past few weeks I’ve tried out the Lush Twilight Body Spray – I loved it so much that I made my family try it, and sent pictures of it to my friends. And it turns out some of you wanted me to do a review on the body spray, so I hope you all enjoy this review!

Are Lush cruelty free?

Lush are an all-round ethical company that are committed to being cruelty-free, vegetarian (and occasionally vegan) as well as sustainable where possible. Their products are all handmade, smell amazing, and have a cool sticker at the bottom of their (packaged) products to tell you who made the products, when they were made and when it will expire. With over 100 stores across the U.K, Lush is easily one of the most prominent organic beauty brands.

Lush Twilight Body Spray

Lush Twilight Spray from behind

The Lush Twilight Body Spray is from the Lush Twilight Collection. Made with a blend of Lavender Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil known for its natural antidepressant and antiseptic properties, Tonka Absolute and Benzoin Rezanion for helping to reduce inflammation and give a sweet aroma. And it’s vegan!

I bought the body spray for £20.00 (200ml) from the White City Westfield Lush store.

Review

Lush Twilight Bath Bomb fizzed out

When I first sprayed the Twilight Body Spray, I could immediately smell the lavender oil. Once the body spray settles on the skin, it begins to smell exactly like the Twilight Bath Bomb. Like the bath bomb, the body spray has such a calming effect with the stress relieving aromatherapy scents like the ylang ylang oil and the lavender oil. Did I sleep well after? Yes! It actually didn’t take very long for me to fall asleep, bearing in mind that I had a shower before bed, so I was already relaxed. I do think that the spray did work, but it is kind of overwhelming if you’re not used to the scents.

Before buying the body spray, I remembered that the staff at Lush said that it’s best to spray the bed sheets and pillows as it lasts longer. How did I sleep after spraying on the bed sheets and pillow? Much better than before. In fact, I’ve continued to use the body spray on my pillows and bed sheets. The smell is still there, but just more subtle, and allows you to gradually fall asleep.

In general, I found the body spray to be a little strong when I sprayed it directly on myself. When I followed the advice of the staff at Lush, it worked just as well and the smells weren’t as overpowering. This body spray is perfect for those who have trouble sleeping. ✨

Lush 'Sugar Daddy-O' Conditioner Bar

Lush ‘Sugar Daddy-O’ Conditioner Bar Review

Earlier on this week, I did a review on the Lush ‘Honey I Washed My Hair’ shampoo bar and today I wanted to follow-up on that with a review of the Lush conditioner bar that I’m using too.

A few weeks ago, I shared a video on my Facebook page about the environment effects of plastic waste and how we can reduce our plastic waste by using shampoo and conditioner bars instead of bottles. After seeing the sheer amount of plastic that we have accumulated in land fills, I think that the least that we can do is to make positive changes to the environment by reducing our plastic waste.

About Lush

(Do I really need to write this at this point? Haha)

Lush are an all-round ethical cosmetics company that are committed to being cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable as possible. Their products are all handmade, smell amazing, and have a cool sticker at the bottom of their boxed products to tell you who and when the products were made. With over 100 stores across the U.K, Lush is easily one of the most prominent organic beauty brands.

Lush ‘Sugar Daddy-O’ Conditioner Bar 💜

The eco-friendly Lush ‘Sugar Daddy-O’ Conditioner Bar is made using luscious linseed infusion, argan oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and olive oil to nourish. A floral bouquet of violet leaf absolute, rose and bergamot creates intoxicating fragrance that will last on hair all day. Work the bar between the hands before applying a small amount into wet hair; a little goes a long way.

I bought the ‘Sugar Daddy-O’ Conditioner Bar for £6.75, the bar is approx. 45ml, which may seem a little expensive for people but based on other online reviews the bar lasts for about 180 washes (6-8 weeks for some). And to top it off, this particular product is vegan! ☺

Review

As soon as I saw the conditioner bar in store, I had to buy it. I loved the fact that it has ‘Hair Conditioner’ embossed on top, and of course because of the lovely smell of the shea butter and cocoa butter.

Before using the conditioner, I tested out the Lush ‘Honey I Washed My Hair’ Shampoo Bar, and then conditioned my hair. The conditioner bar took a little while to lather, but once it did, it had a thick and smooth consistency – just like any other conditioner. And again, like the other conditioners that I use, it took roughly 5 minutes to thoroughly rinse my hair.

After drying my hair, it had a sleek and smooth shine to it. Normally, I get this kind of healthy shine in my hair when I’ve soaked oil on my hair and washed it, but since using the conditioner I haven’t been using any other hair oil because I didn’t feel the need to. The conditioner is nourishing, and left a soft fragrant smell of the cocoa butter.

Since using the Lush conditioner and shampoo bars my hair feels smoother and healthier, in fact I’ve got quite a few compliments on the condition of my hair. It’s also important to mention that I’ve experienced less hair fall than I normally do. Like the description says, a little really does go a long way; on days that I’ve used the minimal amount of conditioner, my hair still looks conditioned.

The Lush ‘Sugar Daddy-O’ Conditioner Bar is all round economical, eco-friendly and smells amazing. ✨

I’ll be honest, this video prompted me to try the Lush shampoo and conditioner bars and try to reduce my plastic waste wherever possible.

Lush ‘Honey I Washed My Hair’ Shampoo Bar 🍯

The eco-friendly Lush ‘Honey I Washed My Hair’ Shampoo Bar is made with moisterising honey to keep the hair soft and for its natural antiseptic properties. To top it all off the uplifting sweet wild orange and bergamot oils create a gentle aroma.

I bought the ‘Honey I Washed My Hair’ Shampoo Bar for £6.50, the bar is approx. 55ml,which may seem a little expensive for people but based off of other online reviews the bar lasts for about 180 washes (6-8 weeks for some people).

Review

The first thing that I noticed about the shampoo bar was that it smelt of honey, and I’ll admit that I was kind of taken back by how small it actually was when I bought it in store.

Once I got home, I tested it out immediately. Surprisingly, the shampoo bar lathered so quickly, it generally felt like I was washing my hair with a honey and milk blend. The aroma of the shampoo was pretty soothing, and it took me 5 minutes to rinse my hair (roughly the same amount of time that it would with any other shampoo).

After drying my hair, I could still smell the shampoo in my hair. I found that the shampoo bar nourished my hair and since using the shampoo I’ve experienced less hair fall than normal. Before, my hair would fall out like a dog during malting season (I wish I was exaggerating), but thankfully the Lush shampoo and conditioner bars have done wonders for my hair.

One little thing that I would have to complain about, is that I wish the shape and overall look of the shampoo bar itself was a little bit more quirky and fun like their bath bombs. Though, I do love the naked packaging concept that Lush have. The Lush ‘Honey I Washed My Hair’ Shampoo Bar is all round economical, eco-friendly and smells amazing. ✨

P.S: I normally don’t use shampoo on its own, I always condition my hair, so to see the full effects of the shampoo and conditioner bars combined, you have to check out my next review. 😉

Friction Free Shaving Review

Today I wanted to share a game changing gift set with you all, just in time for the summer, the Friction Free Shaving – Gift Set. If you’re anything like me and you have sensitive skin and just generally dread the thought of going through the gruelling pain of getting waxed, then this little kit will save you on both the pain and money.

Who are Friction Free Shaving?

Friction Free Shaving is the first razor delivery service designed exclusively for women. Friction Free Shaving are on a mission to make it cleaner, easier and cheaper for you to shave your legs, underarms and any other areas. All you need to do is sign up and you’ll receive the handle and fresh blades every month.

FFS – Gift Set

With Friction Free Shaving, you get your choice of Shaviour (the razor handle) and free engraving of your choice. First of all you need to use Pre Shave Scrub, a gentle and all natural exfoliate made using the husk of walnuts. After using the scrub, apply the have Cream which is packed with moisturising Manuka honey, Shea butter and coconut oil. And finally, after getting out of the shower you simply need to apply the Post Shave Balm, which provides deep hydration to soothe and condition your skin. The gift set includes four German-engineered razor refills, each with 6 diamond-coated steel blades, styling bikini blade, shower hook and blade cover.

One of the main reasons for the disposable blades was mainly due to hygiene; when we continue to use the same blade over and over our skin becomes more at risk of getting infected, pigmented and developing abscesses. Changing our blades weekly is recommended by skin experts to prevent any damage that could happen from using blunt blades.

Review

Shaviour

I am loving the rose gold razor and the ergonomic design. The razor head moves according to the shape of your legs and the direction that its going in which makes it all the more easy to use that your average disposable razors. The blades itself are not too sharp.

Pre – Shave Scrub

This scrub has a thick consistency and you can smell of the manuka honey. It works well at prepping the skin by exfoliating and smoothing the skin and hairs without hurting the skin, which is great because I have sensitive skin. The exfoliating process is pretty straightforward, and worked well at softening the hairs.

Shaving Cream

The shaving cream completely smoothed out the skin, and honestly I was amazed by the fact that my skin didn’t sting once. The smoothness of the shave was unbelievable, I didn’t experience any cuts and redness at all, and after a while I noticed that I didn’t get any bumps on my legs.

Post – Shave Balm

Once I got out of the shower and dried myself down, I noticed just how smooth my legs were and after adding the balm on the skin, my skin become so soft and nourished. It genuinely did not feel like I had shaved my legs, it felt more like I had just got my legs waxed (minus the pain and redness).

Overall, I feel that the process is relatively simple and easy to follow – my legs are so smooth and I’m not getting any bumps on my skin (yay). It makes great sense in terms of hygiene, and for someone with sensitive skin – it works wonders. And I’ve got to appreciate their sassy style.

I hope you all enjoyed my Friction Free Shaving review, I’d like to thank RebKan PR and the FFS team for sending me this awesome gift set.

Plum Goodness Vanilla & Fig Body Butter

Hi everybody, how are you all doing today? ☺

I hope the snow has cleared up in your area. Lately, I’ve been juggling a few different projects (I feel like I say this a lot) and I am working on bringing you guys more reviews, guides and offers. For now, I’m coming towards the end of the Plum Goodness series; there’s only one more review left to do, at this point it’s needless to say that I am kind of in love with this brand, so perhaps I may do some more reviews on their products later on this year. Last month, I did a quick poll on whether you guys wanted to see more reviews from this brand or not. Thankfully, you all weren’t fed up of seeing me talk about this brand.

Today’s review is on the Vanilla & Fig Feel The Fudge Body Butter from the Vanilla & Fig range.

A little about Plum Goodness…

Plum Goodness is an online-cosmetic brand, based in India, that was founded by Shankar Prasad in July 2014. The brand is one of the first 100% vegan brands in India that are completely committed to ensuring that their products are ‘safe and good’ – not only are the products cruelty-free but they are also free of parabens, phthalates and SLS.

The products all feature the ‘1% For The Planet’ logo, meaning that Plum Goodness give 1% of their sales to non-profit organizations that are dedicated to protecting the environment.

Plum Goodness Vanilla & Fig Body Butter

The Plum Goodness Vanilla & Fig Body Butter is a deep hydrating, emollient body butter with nourishing shea butter, soothing vanilla and antioxidant fig extracts for all-round care. The body butter contains added vitamin B3, vitamin C and fig fruit extract for its anti-ageing and skin conditioning properties which works well for all skin types, including those with dry skin.

The body butter is priced at Rs. 450.00 (Indian rupees) for 200ml, which is approximately £5.00 – please do bear in mind that the exchange rate can fluctuate, and the price could be a little higher for someone purchasing from outside of India. I bought the body butter as part of the Vanilla & Fig Irresistible Bundle, at the time it was worth Rs. 1440 and I was charged £16.35  for it but it’s currently on sale for Rs. 1,050.

Review

One of the main reasons that I bought this body butter, was because of the quality of the brand and the great reviews on it.

When I first opened the Plum Goodness Vanilla & Fig Body Butter, I could immediately smell the soothing vanilla scent, I couldn’t really smell the fig as much. On its first use, I found the body butter to be quite rich and smooth, as well as good value for money as I didn’t have to use a lot of product on my body for it to be completely moisterised.

Generally, I’ve been using this body butter since I received it a couple of months ago and I’m pretty impressed with the way that it manages to keep my body nourished throughout the day, especially when it’s freezing outside. I haven’t needed to re-apply the body butter, and when I shower after using the body butter, my skin is still soft. During the snowy weather, this body butter doubled as a hand cream and it did not dry up at all, my hands did freeze but they weren’t dry if that makes sense. So far this body butter (and brand) has continued to amaze me with it’s high quality. 👌🏽💆🏽‍✨

If you are from India, then you can order directly from the Plum Goodness website. If you live outside of India, then you can order the products by emailing hello@plumgoodness.com
