My thoughts on the product:
I love everything I have tried from the Organic Works so far. I first discovered this British brand via Cert Clean Clean Beauty Awards, when I got to test their body wash (loved it), then the body lotion and the Night Cream that came in the Love Lula Beauty Box – the latter is definitely featured in my upcoming Favourites post soon. This serum has got my immediate attention. It is gel consistency, which is perfect for summer. I tried it a couple of times and the first impressions are good. No tightness or adverse reactions on my uber sensititve skin. The ingredients list is short, which is a good thing, but the alcohol is listed as second ingredient, which is a bit of red flag for me. It is drying with no real benefits to the skin, so why brands are putting it so high on the ingredients list is a bit of a mystery to me. In the case You didn’t know, ingredients are listed in order of quantity, meaning the water and the alcohol denaturate are a bulk of this product. I will keep You posted on this.

My thoughts on the product:
I have to say I agree with everything they are saying. Inika mascaras are THE.BOMB.DOT.COM. They will give You all the va-va-voom You are looking for. Even one layer is making my short and stubby lashes look impressive. The tube lasts for months, never flaking or giving me racoon eyes. Most of the natural mascaras do, I have tried tons and tons of them and I always seem to go back to Inika mascaras. The price is a bit steep though, so I always try to look for a deal. Deal or no deal this is worth the money though, I can count on it to perform without a fail. I love Inika as a brand, I have reviewed them before. A lot of their products are my Holy Grails.

My thoughts on the product:
I love body oils! Body oils and shea butter is all I use on the body, so this product product had me really excited… till I discovered the spearmint in the ingredients list. I am someone who cannot tolerate any mintiness anywhere on my body. Spearmint is less minty, but still. The oil seems like a good quality oil, the fragrance can be described as indian spice mix meets spearmint and it lasts on the body. The oil itself is easily absorbed, so I liked that about the product. I will honest I will be passing this on, but I will look into other oils Urban Veda offers – this had me interested enough to know more. Hope others does not have mint in them 🙂
LYONSLEAF beauty balm
Lyonsleaf beauty balm is fragranced with essential oils, but we also have an unfragranced version.
Beauty Balm is an incredibly effective complete facial skincare solution with absolutely no artificial chemicals. A real one-pot-revolution in natural skincare.
This product is water-free, so it is a super concentrated product. You need only use a tiny amount and will find it glides on, absorbs easily, covers a surprisingly large area and keeps skin hydrated for a very long time. A small pot uses less space, resources and packaging yet it goes a remarkably long way.
Made with over 95% tropical oils, this product will not oxidise on the skin and is perfect for daytime use. Great as a primer or make up or under mineral sunscreens that are otherwise often hard to apply.
INGREDIENTS: (95% organic/wild harvest): orbignya oleifera [cold pressed babassu oil] • butyrospermum parkii [raw organic shea butter] • macadamia ternifolia [organic, cold pressed, macadamia nut oil] • simmondsia chinensis [organic, cold pressed, jojoba oil] • prunus amygdalus dulcis [cold pressed sweet almond oil] • tocopherol [natural vitamin E oil] • cymbopogon martinii [palmarosa essential oil]• salvia sclarea [clary sage essential oil] • styrax benzoin [benzoin resin] • pogostemon cablin [patchouli essential oil] • rosemarinus officinalis [organic rosemary essential oil] • calendula officinalis • [calendula flower extract] • note: the essential oils naturally contain: citral, geraniol, benzyl benzoate, benzyl cinnamate, farnesol, limonene, linolool.
My thoughts on the product:
I love this thing! Over the years I have gone through a lot of jars of it and I am yet to review it separately. I think I ought to. The texture is creamy, melting to oil as soon at it hits the skin. This protects my skin from harsh Irish winds and can be used so many other different ways too, like balm cleansing. I immediately used half of it to make my own cough balm to be used on my kids chests & soles – let me know it You want the recipes?
