How I healed a rash caused by product reaction

A few days ago I had a terrible reaction to a cleansing balm (pictured below). Within 10mins of using it my face got covered in hives, I couldn't take photos because it happened at night, there was no light, and I took a antihistamine and proceeded with a calming gentle skincare routine and was much better the next day. 


HOW TO Recycle Beauty Packaging

Since the booming of the plastic industry, around the 1950's, an astonishing 9.2 billion tons of plastic have been produced. 6.9 billion tons have become waste and of those 6.3 billion tons were not recycled. It is hard to know exactly how much has ended up in the ocean but it is estimated that 14 million tons of plastic are dumped in coastal regions EACH YEAR. Let that sink in for a moment.

Beauty Empties and How To recycle them

I have the biggest amount of empties that I have been collecting for nearly a year to show you but I always seem to forget but I have recently trying to declutter my home and my life and that includes getting rid of all this trash so I'll be posting 10 empties every week :) For each empties post I'll be also showing how to recycle all this packaging!

Going cruelty-free & to do with all other beauty products

I see so many people online who are currently or have recently transitioned to a vegan lifestyle. Myself after 11 years vegetarian, decided to go one step further and adopt a vegan diet from January 1 2020. It started out as a 'Veganuary' challenge and I soon decided this was the best decision for my body, my mind and the planet. 


Healavie Cleansing Oil Gel REVIEW

When it comes to my night skincare routine, I might not always be in the right mood for a 10 step routine but I always, and I mean always, cleanse my skin at night. For days when I’m too tired or feeling t0o depressed to do anything, I like a cleanser that quickly and effectively removes makeup and cleanses my skin, so I can just spritz something and put on a sleeping mask and crawl into bed. Unfortunately lately these days have been more frequent than I liked to and that’s when this Healavie Cleansing Oil Gel comes into play.
