Lush Bewitched Bubble Bar Review

Lush Bewitched 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 review on the Lush Bewitched Bubble Bar! ☺

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.

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.)

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. ✨

The Ordinary Serum Foundation – Light Medium Review

I hope you all are staying hydrated in this heat. In the summer, I usually try to avoid using much makeup on my skin. The combination of wearing makeup and the heat always ends up looking messy on me. But there are times when I really do want to wear makeup despite the hot weather. I was browsing the net, as you do, and I came across this foundation – naturally I had to do a review for you all!

Are The Ordinary cruelty free?

The Ordinary is an evolving collection of treatments offering familiar, effective clinical technologies positioned to raise pricing and communication integrity in skin care. The Ordinary, are free of parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, animal oils, coal-tar dyes, formaldehyde, mercury, oxybenzone. This brand does not test on animals, does not pay others to do so and do not sell any products in mainland China.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation – 2.0 N Light Medium ️ 

The Serum Foundation is available in 21 shades, ranging from very fair to very deep and each classified according to its undertone. ‘P’ shades stand for pink undertones, ‘R’ for red, ‘N’ for neutral and ‘Y’ for yellow, so you can suit your skin tone to a tee. The formula also offers SPF 15 sun protection without the use of chemical sunscreens – and it’s vegan. I bought the serum foundation for £5.70 (30ml) from Cult Beauty.

Review

At first, I actually thought the cap was missing. Turns out it’s just meant to be that way, the pump twists to open and close. I found the serum foundation a little runny, but I guess the consistency is supposed to be thin if it’s serum based. The foundation blends well into the skin with a beauty blender, once it set it gave my skin a matte finish and matched my skin tone perfectly.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve tried different combinations of moisturisers, face oils and setting sprays to see which works best and lasts long. In that time, I thought that using face oils (whichever suits your skin type) and a light spritz of setting spray kept my foundation in tact and looking a little more fresher. Personally, I’m not a fan of the matte finish – though this wasn’t too mattifying. I appreciate that I can make small changes to my skin care to get the dewy look that I normally go for. For what it’s worth, I think it’s a steal; the lightweight natural coverage is perfect for this hot weather.

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer Review

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably seen the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer everywhere. Known for its value for money, multiple shades and countless comparisons to its high-end counterparts the Makeup Revolution Concealer had everyone interested.

Are Makeup Revolution Cruelty free?

Makeup Revolution is a budget UK makeup brand, owned by TAM Beauty, that offers a variety of makeup and brushes. The brand launched in 2014, offering affordable high quality makeup and dupes of expensive high-end makeup – to top it off the entire range is 100% cruelty-free and most of their products are actually vegan too!

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer – C7

The Conceal & Define Concealer made using Rosehip Seed Oil to even out and brighten the appearance of the skin, Castor Oil – for it’s anti-inflammatory properties and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract for it’s antioxidant effect. I bought the C7 shade, which is for medium skin tones with yellow undertones. All together there are 25 concealer shades, for different skin tones and undertones – and the best part is that it’s £4 for 4g each. To top it off, this particular product is vegan.

Review

Initially, I thought that the concealer wasn’t too creamy, felt lightwight and blended in well to my skin with my beauty blender. The colour was almost a perfect match to my skin tone, which I really appreciate as it can be quite difficult to find the right match and I’m personally not a fan of ‘the eyes looking lighter than the rest of my face’ look.

The best way to apply the concealer was with my beauty blender, the brush is not as effective, and can leave marks – it just don’t work even if your brush has soft bristles. Using a brush just doesn’t give it the smoothed out look that I normally like (I prefer a no makeup makeup kind of finish).

After using the concealer for about a month, I noticed the difference in the overall finish of the concealer when using different moisterisers and face oils on my skin. When using my normal day creams and moisterisers, the concealer appeared slightly pink-ish on my skin. For me, the best results that I had with the concealer was when I was wearing the A’kin Rosehip Oil under the concealer – it gave my skin a smooth look and I felt that the colour didn’t change with the face oil on.

I used the A’kin Rosehip Oil (below) and a Plum Fig & Vanilla moisturiser (above) under the concealer to show you the difference between the finishes.


That’s what the concealer looks like when swatched on my skin.

And now after blending the concealer, it’s like it was never there *magical* 👀✨

(Unfortunately, the difference in colour is not quite visible in the picture, but I personally felt that the rosehip oil gave it a more even finish.)

Now I will be honest, I usually use eye primer, so for me this was my first time using a concealer but I’m impressed with the quality of the product. One thing that I genuinely do appreciate, is the amount of shades that are available to buy, sometimes it’s such a struggle to find the right shade and undertone as surprisingly most high street stores still don’t sell a wide variety of makeup for people of colour, which is unfortunate – because, you know, you’re missing out on a huge market! This is a wonderful product for those who are trying out new products on a budget and still want to look fabulous. 💅🏼

I also used this over my eyelids when going to a wedding a couple of weeks ago and I was amazed at how well the colours of the eye shadows popped on me. ✨

Makeup Revolution Strobe Lighting Palette Review

Makeup Revolution Strobe Lighting Palette Review

The one thing that you cannot have enough of in this sunny weather is a good highlighter. I try to use highlighters as much as I can because I love the extra pop that it gives to my makeup. Since you all enjoyed my last makeup review, I decided that I’ll keep at it and today I’m reviewing the Makeup Revolution Strobe Lighting Palette.

About Makeup Revolution

Makeup Revolution is a budget UK makeup brand, owned by TAM Beauty, that offers a wide variety of makeup and brushes. The brand launched in 2014, offering affordable high quality makeup and dupes of expensive high-end makeup – to top it off the entire range is 100% cruelty-free and some of their products are actually vegan.

Makeup Revolution Strobe Lighting Palette 🎨

This palette contains 3 strobe highlighters in a rose gold lidded case and a large mirror. As well as being cruelty-free, this particular palette is also both vegan and gluten-free – but unfortunately it does contain parabens. The Strobe Lighting Palette is £8 for three strobe highlighter shades, I actually got for free at Superdrug with the ‘Free Strobe Lightening Palette when you spend £12 on selected Revolution’ deal.

Review

Before I say anything else, I have to appreciate this gorgeous packaging – I absolutely love the shiny rose gold cover (just a tad obsessed). On first look, the shine of the white and green luminescent shade stands out the most to me. The highlighters have a silky feel to it and easily blend in to the skin.

The gold is more on the chalky side, but having said that it does make for a natural looking glow and is easy to build over. Generally, I felt that both the creamy gold and peach shades appear to be quite powdery on my skin and kind of blend in to my skin tone. I found that using a good setting spray brings out the look of the highlighters even more giving it an added pop to my makeup and helps the highlighter last longer than it usually does.

So far, out of all three shades, I’m loving the white luminescent shade with the green shimmer; I don’t normally get to wear colours like that but it’s fun to wear on a night out. ✨

I hope you all enjoyed my review of the Makeup Revolution Strobe Lighting Palette, and get a chance to use the deal a Superdrug too. Click here to buy the palette from Superdrug.

Femna Relax Tea Review

Hey guys, how are you all doing?

Did you know that over the past year, 74% of people have at some point felt so stressed that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope (Mental Health Foundation). Lately, I’ve fallen into the habit of completely stressing out, panicking and feeling burnt out in the past 4-5 months and while I’ve bounced back, all of that stress has been its toll on my physical health. Strangely enough, this week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the main topic that they discuss is stress.

I get irregular periods due to stress and at times I get bloated and sensitive to many foods that it’s not only effected my confidence but my routine too. Generally, I drink green tea to help with the bloating but I felt that it wasn’t working as well as it normally would due to the problems that I face with my periods. I’ve spent more time working on self-care, i.e making sure that I’m spending more time focussing on my health and making time to relax. During this time, I got an email about this wonderful brand that makes teas specifically for womens health, so of course I had to try this out and write a review for you all.

A little about Femna…

Femna was founded by Maxie and Emily, two young and committed social entrepreneurs based in Berlin, Germany that share a passion for women’s well-being. They believe that ailments like menstrual cramps, PMS, cycle fluctuations and menopause discomfort need not be tackled with popping pills all the time. The range of natural alternatives is huge and effective, giving women the opportunity to feel good, naturally.

Femna offer the best natural products possible to make women’s lives easier by helping women maintain a healthy lifestyle, and education around various stages of life.

Femna Relax Tea ☕✨

Lavender can help you unwind so the world won’t look so overwhelming. Nature’s passion flower is made of perfect concentric circles which radiate calmness and peace. Lemon balm and tansy help you to let go of unwanted stress and Chamomile comforts your organs from all the negative energy that might surround you.

The Relax Tea is priced at 11.90 for 50g, which roughly makes 25-30 cups of tea. This tea is not recommended for women during pregnacy and lactation.

How to make

Drink as a regime for a few weeks with 2-3 cups a day and use 2 teaspoon per 200ml boiling water, cover (so you don’t lose the essential oils) leave to brew for 8-12 minutes.

Review

Let me get straight to the point – it was love at first sip! The aroma of the tea itself is soothing, you can smell the blend of the lavender and passion flower. As the relax tea is a loose tea, the smells and taste are more prominent than your normal cuppa.

I’ve never drank anything with passion flower or rose before and I am not complaining, it really adds a gentle touch to the tea. You can taste the chamomile in there, but personally I think that I could feel the calming effects of the chamomile more than you can taste it.

So far so good, I generally feel less bloated in the past few week that I’ve tried the tea and overall my body feels relaxed. As a result of my body feeling more relaxed, I don’t panic as much as I have done in the past, I definitely feel that this tea has been working on helping me to relax. This feels like a natural, more cleaner way of dealing with everything without worrying about any extreme negative side effects. Of course not every girl and woman experiences the same symptoms or problems which is why Femna have a whole range of teas designed to suit you at whatever stage you’re at in life.

Femna itself is amazing, I’m always for supporting a brand that helps women talk openly about their health without feeling any kind of stigma which is why I’ve tried my best to be as open about my personal health with you all. Thank you to the lovely ladies at Femna for sending me this brilliant tea.

A’kin The Big Deal Kit Review

I hope you all are having a great start to the week, today I finally get to share news about another amazing deal from A’kin & QVC. Those of you that follow my blog have already seen my review on an A’kin product a little while back  and I was pretty impressed by the amazing quality of their product. Today’s deal is not just about one product but as you can tell from the title of this post, it’s about four products namely the A’kin The Big Deal Kit!

Review

A’kin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

This lightweight but nourishing oil has quickly become one of my personal favourites; the rosehip oil is formulated to help soothe and hydrate your complexion, as well as other areas of dry skin on your body. It’s perfect to use over scars, stretch marks and just over dry skin in general. On days that my skin needs less moisturising, I’ve used this before applying my makeup and it’s kept my makeup looking fresh the whole day.

I’ve already reviewed this before you can click here to read the full review on the A’kin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil.

A’kin Hydrating Antioxidant Day Cream

This daily facial moisturiser has a fast-absorbing formula enriched with organic coconut water and green tea, that works to deeply hydrate your skin.

The day cream is refreshing, calming and has a light, buttery texture and that nourishes my skin throughout the day. The smell of the green tea is quite refreshing, and when I apply the cream to my skin, I can definitely feel the calming coconut ingredients which works well for the skin as the weather starts to get warmer outside. I do wish that there was a night cream to the kit.

A’kin Hydrating Mist Toner

The mini mist spray is from the same range as the day cream, infused with organic coconut water and green tea, helps to balance the pH levels skin and soothe your skin.

I’ve been using this over my makeup before I go out to work and days out in general and I love the freshness of the spray. It keeps my makeup pretty much intact throughout the day, which is perfect if you don’t have the time to touch up or check your makeup. Word of advice to you all – don’t make the mistake of using this a little while after using mascara, I learnt that lesson the hard way (lol), in all honesty that was my fault for not waiting for my mascara to dry. This travel size toner spray is perfect to take with you on the go!

A’kin Cleansing Micellar Water

The cleansing micellar water is infused with organic coconut water, green tea, cucumber and lavender, there has never been an easier way to cleanse than with this micellar water, which works to instantly remove impurities and make-up from your face without the need to rinse it off.

Since I received this, I had been using the toner as a makeup remover everyday and despite the green tea in the water, it was so gentle and easily removed my makeup. The water left my skin feeling hydrated, refreshed and glowing after using it.

Personally, I think that this kit is a great way to try the different products from A’kin, especially if you’ve never used the brand before, it’s definitely worth the price. I’d like to thank the lovely people at RebKan PR and A’kin for sending me this wonderful kit!

Click here to buy the A’kin The Big Deal Kit from QVC – remember this offer is running for one week only, so make sure you get your hands on it before it all goes! ☺

I hope you all enjoyed my A’kin The Big Deal Kit review of this product and your bank holiday weekend!
