Miessence Deodorant

I decided to review a slightly different beauty product today. I’ve been using this deodorant, in two different scents for quite some time now. As some may know, it is pretty hard to find a good natural deodorant. Some of them simply are not strong enough for daily use or some do not have pleasant smells. However, I have found that Miessence deodorants are so far pretty good in both those aspects. I love the smell of the Ancient spice one and the Tahitian Breeze one is pretty nice too. I find that they’re good for daily use, but maybe not for heavy duty stuff like if you’re exercising or something along those lines.  So I think it’s a great natural deodorant for daily use.

Natural Instinct Body Wash

A good body wash is something I’m always on the lookout for. I saw this at my local supermarket, and thought I’d try it out since I’ve used Natural Instincts products before and they’re pretty good. I really, really like this body wash. It smells great, and doesn’t make my skin feel tight afterwards the way some body washes do. I also like that it’s more natural than some of the ones I’ve used in the past, and of course that it’s cruelty free. All in all, a great body wash I’d buy again.

Natio Pure Mineral Concealer

I came across this concealer one day when I realised I’d run out of my regular one. So I popped down to Priceline, and grabbed this one to try. I wasn’t sure how it would look on my skin, but it works wonders on under my eyes (I tend to get dark circles), but on blemishes, it’s a little dark for me. I do like how it’s a brush, and that you can just swipe it onto your skin. It really brights my face up, and makes me look more awake. So I would get this one again because of how it looks under my eyes, but I’m going to keep looking for one to put on blemishes.

E.L.F Mascara

Apart from lip stuff, I also love mascara. I wear it every day, and kind of feel like I’m naked without it ;) So I decided to give this mascara, from E.L.F (Eyes, Lips, Face) in black, a go, since it’s pretty cheap. It comes with two mascaras in one – One end is water proof, and the other is regular. I mainly use the regular one, and found that it’s pretty long-lasting, and comes off easily with some water.
There’s no smell, and it doesn’t irritate my eyes. It stays on, and doesn’t smudge either. 

I like how it comes with two mascaras, so you can choose from regular or waterproof, and it’s great daytime mascara for me.

Niyama Lip Glaze

I bought two of these lip glazes – One in Rosebud (On the left in the pic) and the other in Naturally Nude. The Rosebud one looks like a deep red in the tube, but goes on quite sheer. It contains cocoa butter, so there’s a subtle scent of cocoa butter, nothing too strong. The colour is sheer, and pretty. It doesn’t look or feel like lip gloss, but more like a tinted lip balm. It’s not bad, but the colour could be deeper. 

The Naturally Nude has no colour, and feels a bit thin on my lips, as though I need to apply more of it. I like my lip balms to be thicker on my lips.

The packaging is adorable, I really like the look of it. I don’t know if I’d repurchase since I didn’t really like the Naturally Nude one, but I’d consider buying the Rosebud one again.

Crazy Rumors Lip Balms

Crazy Rumors is a lip balm, and their lip balms are natural and vegan, which I love. I’ve tried two lip balms from Crazy Rumors: Peppermint Twist, and Cola (Which is pictured here). I love the scents these lip balms come in! The Cola one smells like those candy cola bottles you can get, and the Peppermint one smells just like the name: Peppermint! The lip balms themselves are very moisturising, and they glide easily across my lips. I love the packaging, the whole retro feel of the tube is very cool. I'd definitely buy them again.
