Isla Apothecary Skin Balm Review

For me, this month has been all about striking a balance between getting all of my work done and taking care of myself. How has the first month of 2019 been going for you?

Today is the third and last part of my mini Isla Apothecary review series. Scroll down to read my review on the Isla Apothecary Skin Balm!

Are Isla Apothecary cruelty free?

This London-based brand makes everything with care using only natural, ethically sourced, and where possible organic ingredients.

Formulated without animal-derived ingredients, parabens, phthalates, synthetic materials, preservatives or aromachemicals, all ingredients and products are free from animal testing, and are suitable for vegans.

The Isla Apothecary philosophy is to package products according to what is essential to their integrity, to reduce waste at the source and to encourage re-use and recycling, using recyclable boxes and 100% biodegradable void-filling chips made from renewable sources.

Isla Apothecary Skin Balm

The Skin Balm is a luxurious and versatile treatment formulated to offer extremely effective anti-oxidant protection against damaging radicals to restore balance and moisture, reduce inflammation, accommodate cell turnover and strengthen the skin’s protective barrier.

Made with a careful curation of pure, cold-pressed fruit, nut and plant oils naturally abundant in potent essential fatty acids and vitamins vital to skin health. The Skin Balm is a lightweight, grease-less balm used to cleanse, moisturise or prime the skin. The Skin Balm is suitable for all skin types and costs £35.00 for 60ml.

Review

One thing that I noticed was that the jar is much smaller than the others, but it’s safe to say that I definitely underestimated how much product I would need to use.

The Skin Balm doesn’t really have much of smell, but that didn’t really bother me too much. What I really loved it the smooth, buttery texture of the balm, the texture reminds me of ghee. As I mentioned before, I underestimated how much I would need to use on my skin, I’ve been using a pea-sized amount of the balm on my face and haven’t needed to use any more than that.

Most of the time I had used the product on my skin where I had dry patches because of the cold weather and it worked like a charm. The balm spreads quickly and settles into the skin in minutes, leaving a nice shine to it without feeling greasy. After a while, my skin looks and feels smooth – I love it!

Overall, I felt that all the Isla Apothecary products have been high-quality and have become a part of my daily skincare routine. I would definitely recommend the brand to anyone that’s looking for organic skincare, and wants products that are versatile and easy to use. Thank you to the Isla Apothecary team for sending me the set.

Isla Apothecary Body Exfoliant

Isla Apothecary Body Exfoliant + Balm Review

Today is the second part of my mini Isla Apothecary review series. Over the past few weeks, I haven’t been too well and so this review is a little overdue. Thankfully, I’m doing better now, so I’ve got more time to focus on blogging!

About Isla Apothecary

This London-based brand ensures that everything is handmade with care using only natural, ethically-sourced, and where possible organic ingredients.

Formulated without animal-derived ingredients, parabens, phthalates, synthetic materials, preservatives or aromachemicals, all ingredients and products are free from animal testing, and are suitable for vegans.

The Isla Apothecary philosophy is to package products according to what is essential to their integrity, to reduce waste at the source and to encourage re-use and recycling, using recyclable boxes and 100% biodegradable void-filling chips made from renewable sources.

Isla Apothecary Body Exfoliant + Balm

The Body Exfoliant + Balm is a revitalising blend of citrus, mint and wood essential oils wrapped in a mousse-like luxurious body scrub

Made with Organic Raw Sugar Cane and Papaya Extract to buff the skin to purge surface impurities and dead skin cells. A deeply conditioning combination of Shea butter, Coconut, Peach kernel, and Vitamin E oils restores moisture balance, promotes healing, and reduces skin inflammations. The body exfoliant melts into the skin to cocoon and protect against water loss and dryness. No residual greasiness, and no need to moisturise separately after use. Body scrubbing stimulates sluggish circulation, which can lead to lower collagen production, making skin more prone to sagging.

The body exfoliant is suitable for all skin types and costs £34.00 for 300g.

Review

Before I had even tried the body scrub, I felt that the peachy and citrus aroma of the body scrub was soothing. (Which, for me, is usually a sign that the product is good.)

Honestly, I was quite surprised at how large the granules of the organic brown sugar are; most of the body exfoliants that I’ve used in the past are much more smaller than this one. At first, I was a little worried that the scrub might be a little harsh against my skin, but I couldn’t be more wrong.

In the shower, the exfoliant works and melts on the skin within a couple of minutes of using it. It leaves the same kind of polished finish that the mud mask left on face on my skin, and the oils in the exfoliant keep the skin nourished and soft. After getting out of the shower, I definitely felt that the exfoliant and balm helped in keeping me relaxed all over.

It’s definitely worth trying out especially if you get dry skin during the winter, or just like to keep your skin exfoliated. If you’re unsure of whether you want to buy the full product, then you can also get the 60g jar (like the one in my pictures) from the Discovery Kit on the Isla Apothecary website.

So far I am loving the high quality of the Isla Apothecary products, especially since the products have more than one use which is so convenient!

Thank you to the Isla Apothecary team for sending me this fabulous body exfoliant.

Yaoh Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Hey everyone, how have you all been? ☺

(Apologies for the late post, I’ve not been well and had to concentrate on my health first *always prioritise that* )

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted up a review but in case you didn’t know this post is part of a mini series on an amazing 100% vegan brand – scroll down to read my second review of the Yaoh review series – Yaoh Shampoo & Conditioner.

Who are Yaoh?

Yaoh is based in Bristol, UK, and is one of the UK’s original hemp companies, with a range of hemp body care and food products that are 100% vegan, paraben-free, sulphate-free and free from animal testing. Yaoh’s food range is also 100% certified organic.

Review

Yaoh Coconut & Lime Shampoo

Made with a combination of organic Hemp Seed Oil with extracts of Rosemary, Lavender and Chamomile along with Coconut and Lime fragrance to create an invigorating and refreshing shampoo.

The smell of the shampoo really was so refreshing. As someone who has thick hair, I found myself using the shampoo more often than I normally would (roughly around 4 times a week). It’s a little mild for my hair type, in the winter my hair can go a little more greasy from wearing hats, keeping it tied up etc.

Other than that, I think the shampoo would work better for my hair in the summer, and perhaps if I had thinner hair.

Yaoh Summer Breeze Conditioner

Made with Organic Hemp Seed Oil with extracts of Rosemary, Lavender and Peppermint along with floral extracts.

I actually loved the conditioner, it’s kept my hair pretty smooth in the cold weather. The ends of my hair can get quite dry in this weather and I find that I don’t need to use too much product on the ends of my hair for it to work.

I definitely think that the Yaoh Shampoo and Conditioners are worth trying out, especially if you’re looking for an all vegan brand! The products are also recyclable and there’s currently a special offer on the Yaoh website running until the end of December.

Thank you to the lovely Yaoh team for sending me these products. ☺

Yaoh Body Butter Review

The last few of weeks have been such a challenge, naturally, I had to take a bit of a break from the blog to focus on everything else. Before I’d feel guilty about taking a break, but one thing that I’ve been working on this year is not being such a workaholic. So far, I’m getting the hang of it!

In the mean time, I’ve been reviewing quite a few different products (which I can’t wait to share with you). This post in particular will be part of a series on an amazing 100% vegan brand – scroll down to read my first review of the Yaoh review series – Yaoh Body Butter Range.

Who are Yaoh?

Yaoh is based in Bristol, UK, and is one of the UK’s original hemp companies, with a range of hemp body care and food products that are 100% vegan, paraben-free, sulphate-free and free from animal testing. Yaoh’s food range is also 100% certified organic.

Review

All the skincare range is made with organic hemp seed oil. The body butters are all £11.99 for 200g. Overall, I really do like the Yoah skincare range, the body butters and moisturiser are so buttery and smooth – perfect in this cold weather. There are plenty of options to choose from, so there’s something for everyone. And I like that the brand are quite neutral i.e for everyone.

Yaoh Body Butter Original

Made with a combination of Hemp Seed Oil to moisturise and rejuvenate the skin, with extracts of Rosemary, Lavender and Peppermint. Personally, I found myself using this more on regular basis, the lavender and peppermint extracts add a more floral and refreshing fragrance to the body butter compared to just the hemp seed oil – which I loved! My skin stayed smooth throughout the day, which is so important when the seasons change.

Yaoh Body Butter Coconut and Lime

Made with Organic Hemp Seed Oil with extracts of Rosemary, Lavender and Chamomile along with Coconut and Lime fragrance to create an invigorating and refreshing body butter. This was one of my favourite body butters, the smell is uplifting and again the body butter works well in keeping my skin smooth, it does eventually make you feel hungry after a while.

Yaoh Body Butter Tropical Fruits

Made with Organic Hemp Seed Oil with extracts of fruit essences to create a refreshingly fruity body butter. While this is a tropical fruit body butter, I actually liked the fact that the smells weren’t so strong with this one. Again the body butter keeps my skin looking fresh and nourished, and this one reminds me of summer. 🙂

Yaoh Moisturiser Deep Forest

The moisturiser is £6.99 for 56g. Made with Organic Hemp Seed Oil with Essential Oils and extracts to create an exotic moisturiser. I will be honest, the moisturiser was my least favourite, mainly because I prefer floral and fruity fragrances. But I must admit that I did like that the moisturiser is lightweight, and small enough to travel with. Like the body butters, the moisturiser lasts all day, the only real difference is that the body butters have a thicker consistency while the moisturiser is more lightweight.

Generally, I think it really depends on the kinds of scents and ingredients that you prefer in the products that you use, I would definitely recommend the brand. he best thing for me was that I didn’t have to use too much of the product for it to go a long way, and that the packaging is recyclable. Thank you to the lovely Yaoh team for sending me these products. ☺

In the next few weeks there’ll be some more reviews on the Yaoh range. So do let me know what you think!

Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar Review

Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar Review

Bubble bubble toil and trouble!

Halloween is generally a festival that I’ve never really celebrated, the most that I’ve done is watch Halloween films. But last year, I bought some Halloween themed bath bombs from Lush and tried them out – absolutely loved them! This year, I bought some products from the Halloween bath range as my little way to celebrate Halloween (and to relax). Scroll down to read my Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar review! ☺

Who are Lush?

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.

Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar ✨🎃

If you’re pumped for Halloween, you’re sure to feel jacked up by this sparkly bubble bar. Crumble your pumpkin up under running water to build a mountain of soft bubbles. Lay back in the warming juniperberry and uplifting grapefruit waters as they simultaneously brighten your skin and mood. Happy-making lime oil scares away the doldrums and blues, making you feel happy as a Jack whose got the scream. This shimmery pumpkin is really Samhain to shout about.

I bought the bubble bar from the Lush Oxford Street store for £4.75 (each).

Review

This bubble bar looked so magical when I saw it in store, like something you’d see in Harry Potter ☺

As soon as I put the bubble bar under running water, it began melting away instantly, and the colour of the water started to look more like a shimmery tango (orange soda) with bubbles on top. The smell of the pumpkin and grapefruit is so refreshing while the two little cinnamon sticks adds a little soothing spice to the otherwise citrus scent.

Based on the amount of time that it took for the bubbles to disappear, I’m guessing that I spent about an hour in the tub. The combination of the lime oil, grapefruit oil and juniperberry oil left my skin feeling soft and cleansed even after I got out of the bath. I actually regret only getting one of the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bars, it’s definitely my new favourite bubble bars from Lush (might probably buy some more soon). Hopefully they continue making this next year too! ✨

Have any of you tried this bubble bar yet? What were your thoughts on it?

Bewitched Bubble Bar 🐱🧹🖤

After a busy day whizzing around on a broomstick, run a bath, crumble this lucky little cat under the water and ground yourself with spicy olibanum. Let superstitions go and allow yourself to be spellbound by uplifting bergamot oil as your twitch your nose and breathe in this familiar blackberry scent. Whether in this life or one of the other eight, you’d be a fool to let this pass you by!

I bought the bubble bar from the Lush Oxford Street store for £4.95 (each).

Review

Before I had even bought the bubble bar in store, I was in love with the berry scent. On its own, the bar itself is dry and crumbles a little.

When I put the bubble bar under running water, it took about 10 minutes to melt completely – which is great for me because I still managed to get some pictures of it. The blackberry smell becomes even more prominent while the bubble bar melts away and I loved the way the colour of the water darkens with little flecks of glitter (it really adds to the Halloween theme).

There wasn’t as many bubbles as I was expecting. While the scent was lovely and the bubble bar was overall relaxing, I felt that the bergamot oil wasn’t working on my skin. I must have spent about 30 minutes in the tub. Unfortunately, I just think that this bubble bar didn’t meet my expectations, it’s still worth trying as I enjoyed watching the bar melting. I guess this would probably be more fun than anything else, especially for children.

Have any of you tried this bubble bar yet? What were your thoughts on it?

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!

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

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

Are Electric Ink cruelty free?

It’s currently priced at £9.95 for 200ml.

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. ✨
