*The Humble Co Products Review - Toothbrush, Interdental Sticks & Toothpaste Tablets

Image
*I received these products for free but the opinions are my own. I was kindly sent some The Humble Co products to try out and I thought they would be great to take on my recent holiday as they are eco-friendly products that are kinder to our planet so would be better then taking my usual plastic toothbrush.   Humble Brush Plant Based Toothbrush 2 Pack * - The Humble Co has a bamboo version of this but if you aren't keen on using the bamboo toothbrushes then The Humble Co. have created a plant based Humble brush which has a handle made from a mix of plant based materials. The products inner and outer packaging is made from paper and is eco-friendly. Its Vegan, cruelty-free and verified BPA free.  These are for sensitive teeth and are very soft and as someone who has sensitive teeth I didn't have any problems using this toothbrush at all. It comes in a pack of 2 brushes and there are 2 colour options - purple & blue brush heads or black & white brush heads. These toothbru

The Body Shop Recycling Scheme - Return, Recycle and Repeat

Image
I don't know about anyone else but I am always on the look out for ways to recycle my empties rather than just throwing them in the bin.  We all know about the issue with plastic in the ocean so anything I can do to help stop a little bit of that plastic ending up in the ocean I'm happy to do.  I already recycle and I have written about Kiehl's Recycle and Be Rewarded Program  here , but there are limitations on what they will take.  The Body Shop Return, Recycle and Repeat Scheme helps recycle the more difficult beauty and skincare empties.  Its available in most UK stores and aims to be in 800 stores across 14 countries by the end of 2022. You can recycle beauty packaging, small bottles less then 50ml, pipettes, pumps, plastic pouches, mascaras, and lip gloss tubes which is great as most of them are difficult to recycle elsewhere.  You just need to make sure they are as empty as possible and clean and dry.  You can even recycle other brands as well.  You can just take the

Primark PS Retinol Overnight Hand Cream

Image
I always like to check out Primarks beauty and skincare range as it is so reasonably priced.  I picked up the Primark PS Retinol Overnight Hand Cream as it was a product that I had never come across before and for £2 for 50ml I thought it was definitely worth a try.  This product contains Vitamin E and Shea Butter so its very hydrating and moisturising and it promises smooth and youthful-looking hands. I don't know about you, but I definitely forget to give my hands any TLC and they are open to the elements as much as my face, so I really should take more care of them. I do think the hands can be a tell tale sign of age and I really should do more to protect them, so any product that promises smoother hands sounds like a winner to me. As with all Primark beauty and skincare products this is cruelty free and its also vegan. This hand cream is nice and thick and doesn't have a fragrance which I prefer. It sinks in quickly as well which is good as I hate touching things after us

Cat Comb Review

Image
I don't normally review cat products but I had to review this cat comb as one of my cats loves it.  I have owned cats for years (or more likely they have owned me - any cat lovers out there will agree I'm sure) and I can never resist buying them things even when they are more than happy with the empty boxes from all my beauty purchases.   I wanted to post about this product as I have a shorthaired cat that isn't keen on getting groomed. I've tried soft baby brushes as well as the usual cat brushes that are out there (the furminater is fab for long haired cats). Then I came across the Cat Comb and he absolutely loves it. He will sit there and rub against this comb for ages which is so unlike him. The handle is shaped like a cats head and the brush part is flexible so it goes over the contours of the cat as you are brushing without hurting them.  It does a good job of getting the loose hair off him as well.  This is a great little product and its only around £4.99 from

Bumble and bumble Dry Oil Finishing Spray

Image
I am a member of The Beauty Drop from Liberty and I like to use my £20 monthly subscription credit to purchase products that I haven't tried before.  My recent purchase was  Bumble and bumble Dry Oil Finishing Spray .  This is a lightweight mist for subtle shine and softness for dry hair. I straighten my hair quite a lot and I find that throughout the day, the frizz starts to set in and this spray just gets rid of the frizz and gives me a shine boost. As its a weightless spray, you can apply as much as you want and it doesn't leave your hair feeling or looking greasy. You can just spray the mid to ends of your hair and comb it through and the frizz is tamed. Its not cheap at £26 for 150ml, which is why I bought it with my Beauty Drop credits, but it really does make a difference to my hair. Leigh 💜 I bought this product with my own money

*The Geomag Glitter Panels Recycled Range

Image
     *I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. I was recently sent The Geomag Glitter Panels Recycled 35-piece set* to review. Each Glitter set is fully compatible with the full Geomag range, including Classic, Green line, Supercolor, and Glow. The Geomag Glitter Panels Recycled 35-piece set is suitable for ages 3-99 and is made from 100% recycled plastic which is great when sustainability is the main goal for many of us. The set also comes with a storage box which makes it easy to store when not in use. This works by connecting magnetic rods to metal spheres, using plastic panels to reinforce and decorate. All you need is your imagination to start building different structures and shapes. Geomag ensures that children can learn key skills through the joy of building, construction, and even demolishing their creations. Packed full of invisible forces that make the magnetic rods and metal spheres attract, Geomag allows children to build endless designs, all you ne

*The Hair Boss The Anti-Static Mist & The Humble Co. Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrush

Image
  *I received these products for free but the opinions are my own. I have curly hair so I definitely suffer from the frizzies around my hairline (even when I straighten my hair those pesky short hairs around my forehead can be such a pain to deal with), so I was happy to try out The Hair Boss The Anti-Static Mist* and the Humble Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrush* (I know you are probably thinking what has a toothbrush got to do with frizzy hair, but stay with me folks and I will explain all). First of all the Hair Boss The Anti-Static Mist* is a superfine mist that neutralises and controls fly-aways, static and frizz. It smooths split ends and at the same time enhances shine (another god send for curly haired peeps). This spray forms a thin coating around the hair shaft and is suitable for all hair types. You can use the mist before and after styling for a shiny, smooth finish. It doesn't leave your hair feeling sticky or stiff either. It costs £8.99 from Superdrug for 150ml. So
