Wake Skincare Face Mask review

- This post contains gifted products and affiliate links. -

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I last reviewed Wake Skincare (formerly EyeWake which is the name that brand used when I last reviewed them) but today I have a new product from Wake Skincare to share with you all today; the Wake Skincare Face Mask.

The Wake Skincare Face Mask is a kaolin clay-based face mask that is designed to help with acne and dull skin by detoxing, exfoliating, removing dead skin and unclogging the pores. The goal is to leave the skin smooth and clear with a radiant glow. 

The mask is paraben and sulphate free, not tested on animals and is FSC approved. 

The Face Mask comes packaged in a white jar that holds 50ml of product. In a bid to reduce plastic waste, the jar is made of glass and can be recycled. The mask itself is a pale, dusky pink in colour and is quite thick and gritty consistency wise as it contains exfoliants.

Norfolk Natural Living Natural Deodorant review

- This post contains gifted products and affiliate links. -

Hey guys! I’m back! Thank you so much for your patience whilst I had some things to deal with, but I’m here again and today I’m bringing you a post about a product that I received recently from a brand called Norfolk Natural Living.

The Natural Deodorant from Norfolk Natural Living is described as being a unisex, "refreshing, long-lasting natural deodorant" that is made of natural ingredients, is vegan friendly and is free of aluminium and parabens. It has also never been tested on animals and is good to the environment (and the packaging is made of recycled materials). In addition to acting as a deodorant, it also contains hydrating ingredients to keep your underarms moisturised. All ingredients used are also gentle enough for sensitive skin.

The Norfolk Natural Living Natural Deodorant comes in a range of four fragrances; fig, rose, sea salt and lime. I have the fragrance sea salt and it smells lovely and refreshing, like hanging around at the sea side. I imagine it would be particularly great for the summer months!

Alongside the deodorant, Norfolk Natural Living have a varied range of other natural products for sale, including skincare, bodycare and haircare as well as household and cleaning products. So if you like your household products to be as natural as your skincare, maybe you’d like to check out the rest of their range.

Going back to the deodorant though, each bottle is 50ml in size and is made of glass with a shiny, plastic screw cap lid. The deodorant has a rollerball inside to apply it with and the deodorant itself is a pale yellow in colour.

I love the style of the bottle and the packaging. I also love how it looked when I opened the box as I felt that the packaging and the bottle itself had a nice, rustic vibe to it. Therefore, I took all the photos of the bottle still in the box so that you could all appreciate that vibe also!

Skinny Tan Face range reviews

- This post contains gifted products and affiliate links. -

Hi guys! A few posts back I wrote about the Skinny Tan Coconut Tanning Water Mist and Dual Tanning Mitt and today I’m going to be writing about a whole range of complimentary products from the Skinny Tan Face range.

Skinny Tan Gradual Tan Daily Moisturiser, 2in1 Overnight Tan & Hydrating Mask, Moisturising Tanning Drops, Daily Superglow Highlighting Serum and Semi-Permanent Contour Serum

Skinny Tan Gradual Tan Daily Moisturiser, 2in1 Overnight Tan & Hydrating Mask, Moisturising Tanning Drops, Daily Superglow Highlighting Serum and Semi-Permanent Contour Serum

In this post we will be looking at the Skinny Tan Gradual Tan Daily Moisturiser, 2in1 Overnight Tan & Hydrating Mask, Moisturising Tanning Drops, Daily Superglow Highlighting Serum and Semi-Permanent Contour Serum.

Each of the products work together to give you a natural looking, streak-free tan on the face that also sculpts the face.

The Gradual Tan Daily Moisturiser and the 2in1 Overnight Tan & Hydrating Mask are both gradual tanners (or tan extenders). The Moisturising Tanning Drops contain a concentrated tanning product that can be added to your regular moisturiser and you can decide on the shade level yourself.

The Daily Superglow Highlighting Serum and Semi-Permanent Contour Serum are sculpting, highlight and contour products. The Contour Serum is effectively a semi-permanent bronzer for a contoured face without makeup. 

All of the products in the Face range contain Aloe Vera and Guarana as well as the signature Skinny Tan scent of caramel and coconut. They promise that all products are fast drying and non-sticky. On top of that, they are sulphate and paraben free with no skin drying chemicals and they are vegan/vegetarian friendly.

Wicked Gummy Co. Vitamins Range review

- This post contains gifted products and affiliate links. -

Hi guys! I’ve been a bit quiet lately (but most certainly still here), but I’m here today with a whopper of a review discussing 5 different beneficial gummy vitamins for your hair, skin, nails and health. If you’re a regular reader of the blog you may have seen some other posts over the last year or so discussing different hair, nail and skin vitamins, but today we’re definitely taking it up a notch with a whole range to show you. Not only are we talking beauty vitamins, but we’re looking at multivitamins, natural sleep and anxiety/depression aids, probiotics and vitamin D goodness. 

Wicked Gummy Co. range

Wicked Gummy Co. is a new vitamins brand that just hit the market who offer a range of gummy vitamins that are vegan friendly, allergy friendly and contain no added sugar.  The collection includes:

  • Vitamin D Sunshine Gummies - 1000% of your RDI of vitamin D to help strengthen bones, muscle and teeth. Also good for those who follow a plant based diet. Orange flavour 
  • Hair, Skin & Nails - a blend of biotin, vitamins A, C D2 & E, zinc and folate to help provide and maintain healthy hair, glowing skin and stronger nails. Mixed berry flavour
  • Peaceful ZZZZZ - valerian root, passiflora and 5-HTP, a combination to increase serotonin levels, helping to aid sleep, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, weight gain and more. Passion fruit flavour
  • Multivitamin - a blend of essential daily vitamins, including A, B6, C, D & E as well as selenium, biotin and niacin. Overall helping the immune system, normal vision, bone health, psychological function, fatigue, cell protection and maintenance of the hair, skin and nails. Lemon flavour
  • Happy Tummy - a probiotic gummy that contains friendly bacteria to keep your gut flora in balance helping with digestive health, weight loss and immune function. Yoghurt flavour 

Each of the Wicked Gummy Co. vitamins come in packs of 60 and have a dosage of 2 gummies per day, so one bottle will last 30 days. You can purchase each bottle individually, in special duo packs or as a large bundle. The duo packs and bundles carry a very decent discount.

The bottles are clear plastic with a black safety screw cap lid. They each have a black sticker wrapped around the bottle with product info. The gummies themselves are all circular and dome shaped except for the Peaceful ZZZZZ gummies which are shaped like bears.

As you may imagine, trying to go into detail about how each kind of vitamin has helped me specifically is going to be difficult when some cross over in regards to what benefits they have. Therefore I am going to discuss the Wicked Gummy Co. range as a group but make some comments about the individual vitamins as we go.

Update & Bondi Sands news

Hey guys! I want to start off by giving you all a massive apology for being so quiet recently both on the blog and social media. I promise that I’ve not disappeared, but I’ve had to prioritise some family stuff. It’s nothing bad so absolutely no need to worry, but it has been very time consuming.

I just wanted to let you know that the blog is still alive and I have posts that are currently being worked on. One shall be online later this week. In addition, I wanted to update you all on a collaborative post I took part in with Bondi Sands recently titled Bondi Sands’ Best Beauty Tips for 2019. I’d really love it if you could check it out and see not only my best tip but some fab tips from others also!

I’m hoping on having the weekly posts back on track within the next month-2 months, but aiming more to the month timescale. Until then I shall be getting content onto the blog as and when I can.

Thanks so much for your support and patience!

Zoe.
