PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick review

Who is loving the beautiful weather? Who isn’t loving the smell of body odour that comes with sweating in the hot weather? Well, if you are one of those who hate body odour but prefer using natural products, then this post is for you.

The PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick is a natural, crystal deodorant that is fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin.  It works by applying a thin layer of mineral salt which is a bacteriostatic agent that prevents odour causing bacteria from growing, and it does not block pores. It is suitable for sensitive skin, is free of Aluminium Zirconium and Aluminium Chlorohydrate, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, parabens, fragrance and silicones.

When a product has as many 5-star reviews as this one does, it’s worth paying attention to it and checking it out. It definitely captured my attention and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with all of your beautiful faces!

It comes packaged in a shiny, black plastic tube with the PitRok logo in white and gold in the front. It has a screw cap lid and the product itself is a hard, translucent crystal that can be pushed up from the bottom. It hold 100g of product.

E45 Daily Lotion Spray review

Hey guys! Do you ever get dry, itchy skin? Flaky skin? Eczema prone? Looking for a product to get rid of your eczema or dry areas but prefer to put minimal effort into your skincare routine? No fear! This post is for you.

Of course, it’s not just for those with drier skin. Even if you just want a low maintenance body care product to incorporate into your routine, this post is also for you.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the brand E45, especially if you do have dry skin. They’re a great brand for eczema sufferers, and recently they released a new body moisturiser in the form of a spray: the E45 Daily Lotion Spray. This product also comes in an intensive version, but today I shall just be reviewing the Daily Lotion Spray.

E45 explain that this is their trusted formula, but in a fast-absorbing spray for quick application. It contains no added colours or fragrances, is suitable for dry and sensitive skin and is dermatologically tested. It promises 24 hour moisture with a non-greasy formula.

So what’s the difference? What is it for? Well, instead of having to either pump or squeeze lotion from a bottle, with this you simply get to spray it onto the skin, massage in and go. It’s so minimum fuss and effort and really helps to attract those who just either don’t have time or don’t have the effort to give their body care routine any thought. 

Of course that’s not the only reason you may want to try a spray version. I bought this for my daughter to try as well as myself as my little girl gets terrible eczema that really flares up in the warmer weather. Sometimes she doesn’t like having a regular cream applied either, and she will pull her legs away or run away and so on, so something a bit different to get her to cooperate is sometimes a plus.

It comes packaged in a white spray can in the same style and design as other E45 products, except it looks more like a deodorant than a moisturiser, so make sure that you remember which is which!

Avon True Colour Delicate Matte Lipstick reviews and swatches

Hey guys! I’ve got a treat for fans of the Avon True Colour Matte Lipstick and matte lipstick fans in general today! Avon are about to drop their new True Colour Delicate Matte shades.

So what’s the difference between these and their regular True Colour Matte Lipsticks collection? Well, these shades are stepping away from one of the major points that they drove home with the original release about being "more matte than MAC" and instead are giving us some slightly less matte, soft and sometimes sheer vibes - hence the name "delicate".

It comes in a range of 8 shades which only include one shade that could be classified as dark on a shade scale, so there is a lot of focus on the soft/nude type of colours here and less of the bright and colourful (such as the recent Avon mark. Epic Lipstick range).

They promise a comfortable, glide-on formula, to be long-wearing, and that it will not cake up on or dry out the lips.

Each of the shades are packaged in a traditional style of Avon lipstick packaging. It’s a black, matte, rectangular tube with Avon written on a silver strip around the lid. There is no transparent window at the top with this style though, and the inner tube is silver.

Niikam Pure Clay Mask review (& discount code!)

As spring finally arrives, it’s that time of year where we just don’t want to wear as much makeup, so we make sure that our winter skin is well and truly behind us and prep to achieve a beautiful glowing complexion that is bright and ready to face the sun. The product that I will be reviewing today is a face mask that will help on the first step of that mission.

The Niikam Pure Clay Mask is a healing, detoxifying face mask/exfoliant that is designed to help with removing blackheads, tightening pores, smoothing and evening out skin tone. It can be used as a face or body mask or in bathwater. 

Niikam is a new brand that has just launched recently and their business ethos is that the "products [they] produce and deliver will inspire a lasting change to [their] customers physical and mental well-being". 

The Pure Clay Mask is 100% natural, and this particular one who is made up of just one ingredient: bentonite clay. It is also organic and is cruelty free. 

Bentonite clay is a powerful healing clay that is used in many commercial face masks, so if you are a clay mask fan then the chances are that you have used this on your skin before. This product though simply allows the power of this clay to shine on its own.

It is particularly great at helping to heal blemishes, remove blackheads, unclog pores, soothe eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, reduce inflammation, help to heal the skin after sun exposure and also to detoxify. You can see why it's used in so many clay masks, I'm sure. 

It comes packaged in a white foil, re-sealable packet with the product info on the front and the back in black, so it’s a very sleek monochrome package and it looks very nice. Once you tear it open though, the mask itself is a fine, light brown clay powder that comes in a transparent plastic pack that will need to be cut open with scissors. I warn you to be careful with that though as the clay is so fine and it can be easy to lose excess mask in a cloud as you open it.
