Natural Beauty from Myanmar

THANAKHA While we were on holiday in Myanmar I noticed most of the women and and children as well as number of men had a yellow patch of something on their faces. I asked our local guide what it was. He explained that it was called Thanakha and was a make up which also worked as a sun protection and as a bonus smelled good too. We saw this for sale as a piece of wood that needed to be ground which looked like hard work so I asked where I could buy it as a powder. He said that it was available in markets in some places but the wood that ...

Vita Liberata Self Tanning Travel kit

 Vita Liberata Travel Tanning Kit I was very lucky recently and won this in a beauty on trial competition. I have reviewed a few of the items on the site but struggled to find the others on line in order to list the products on the site to review so thought I would do a blog instead. This set arrived packed in a lovely little bag with a zip closure. The bag is silky feeling outside but lined and quite sturdy so a very handy bag to use as a toilet bag after you have finished the products inside it. The bag has a nice handle too so easy to carry from ...

Apple & Bears Bergamot & Green Tea Gift Set

I was lucky and was chosen to try this lovely gift set of the Apple & Bears product in return for writing my views about it on this site in my blog page. I admit that prior to their offer I had never heard of this company so I was keen to see what they made and what their products were like. A bit about Apple & Bears I have been very impressed with what I have found out about this company. They are a family owned, small, British company which I always like to support and to make it even better they only use organic and natural ingredients in all their products. ...."formulas ...

My Weleda Insight Day Experience 2014

This week I was lucky enough to be invited to a Weleda Insight Day. We were asked to arrive by 9.30 and as everyone was gradually arriving from paces as far away as Northern Ireland, London and so on we were offered a drink and biscuits. The drinks ranged from delicious organic cordials , fresh filtered water and a range of organic fruit and herb teas as well as the usual tea and coffee. Once everyone was there we had a short introduction before we were taken by mini bus to the thirteen acre organic and biodynamic gardens about a mile from the main Weleda buildings. This site is in Ilkeston ...

Honey Honey How You Thrill Me

This is one of the newest of lush’s shampoos just released in the last few weeks and I couldn’t wait to try it. Whenever I hear of new products I have to restrain myself from rushing straight to Lush to get them. A bit more about Lush's philosophy Lush only buy ingredients from companies that do not test on animals. They invent their own products and fragrances and make everything fresh by hand. They use as little preservative and packing as possible. They put the date made on the product so you can see how fresh they are and they use vegetarian ingredients. “We believe in happy people making happy soap, putting our ...

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

When my step daughter lived with us for six months after her marriage split we had the pleasure of granddaughter and her company and all the ups and downs that go along with that closeness. Partly the stress and partly other things caused my step daughter’s eczema to flare up again and so in order to avoid using steroid cream we did some investigation as to what was new on the market that we had not tried before. The product that came up as being more natural and very calming for eczematic skin was this Aveeno lotion or aloe vera lotion. We had tried aloe vera a few times before ...
