Lip Love

When you are switching to clean green beauty products, start with swapping either your foundation (because it covers a big area) or your lipstick.
Here are 4 reasons why switching to clean lip products is a good idea:
-The skin on your lips is thin and it’s easier for nasties to penetrate
– You probably re-apply during the day so larger quantities of toxins will be absorbed.
– you will inadvertently swallow some of the product as you eat and drink.
– Your kisses won’t come with nasties ūüôā

Monthly Beauty Buys


This month beauty buys included three repeat-buys:

My much loved  Shu Uemura eye lash curler retired after years of hard graft and had to be replaced with another one, exactly the same.

I buy a new ¬†Ilia lipstick in In my bedroom every couple of months. It’s non-toxic and the colour is a mega flattering natural soft pink that manages to bring some swish to my gloomy¬†autumn face.

Living Natures foundation (in Pure Fawn) is a great lightweight foundation without any nasties
It’s the perfect every day foundation and leaves the skin dewy and soft.

I needed a new blusher and tried out a few non-toxic ones before I settled for Jane Iridales beautiful mineral blush in Barley Rose.

French brand Kure Bazaar’s nail polishes are as natural they can be without compromising on performance.
I needed a  boring base coat, but will defiantly try the deep red cherry coloured Scandal next time.
