Peace – introducing the new artisan and organic beauty website

It was only recently that Anna posted about our top 3 favourite natural beauty online destinations and so we are extremely excited to share another, very unique website with you – Peace. We had the pleasure of being contacted by Huma, the owner of Peace, who is one of the most passionate people out there, living a healthy and green life, and wanting to share it with others. Hearing stories from people on what motivated them to live healthier and less toxic lives always brings us joy, and Huma’s store is no different. Similarly to us, Huma found it very difficult to switch to natural beauty products due to conflicting information and words such as ‘natural’ not being regulated. As a result, Huma trusted her skin only with handmade organic products which helped her skin to heal, after a skin rash she had developed as a reaction to cosmetics from big and well known brands. She strongly believes that less is more – and we couldn’t agree more, especially that our skin can absorb up …

Organic food – to buy or not to buy?

Organic food, and whether buying it is more beneficial for people and the environment, is an on-going debate. You can find a number of articles in press and online, analysing the results of various studies, which often are contradictory and inconclusive. Whilst big corporations are said to have paid for some of them to work to their advantage, by ‘proving’ that pesticides and GMOs don’t have negative impact on the planet and us, you will still find a lot of independent studies. I wanted to make my own stand on this topic, and so I started with defining the meaning of the term ‘organic food’. The word itself has taken its meaning from the organic matter that farmers use to fertilise the soil. Conventional farmers on the other hand, instead of using compost and animal manure, opt in for synthetic fertilizers. How convenient for them!! And I am not just being sarcastic here. My grandparents used to use animal matter on their farm and so I remember the smell during my holidays thre as a …

Where to shop online for green beauty products

Green beauty products become more and more popular these days and the number of new green brands grows. However, the market is still dominated by non-clean brands and it’s not easy to find natural cosmetics in shops. Thankfully, there is a lot of great online shops offering a full range of green beauty products – I find online shopping really convenient, because I can check products’ reviews, compare with others and find the best deal. Also, when I’m in the shop, I tend to grab some items quickly, not giving the purchase a thought because I’m in the rush. When it comes to online shopping, I usually bookmark a product first and think whether it’s worth buying or not. Anyway, let me introduce three of my favourite online shopping destinations to you! 1. Naturisimo We love Naturisimo – it offers free worldwide shipping, the range of products is fantastic and – what is really cool – you can order samples before making a purchase. To get a discount, use SUMMER -10% code at the checkout …

Antipodes – the natural way to treat your skin

I tested quite a few natural beauty products over the past few months and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. First of all, I wanted to talk about face creams and I will start with one of my favourite brands, Antipodes. The brand is from New Zealand and their products are made of sustainable and traceable ingredients, which are free from parabens, silicones, petrochemicals, sulphates and many more toxic ingredients, which can be found in conventional creams. The packaging they use are made of recyclable materials and their products are not tested on animals. Products I tried so far: Antipodes Rejoice Light Day Cream This cream’s key ingredients are Manuka flower and avocado oil, which heal, are anti wrinkle and provide moisturizing nutrients for the skin naturally. I find this cream perfect for the day. It feels rich but is well absorbed by my skin, even when I started using an oily foundation on top of it. I always worry whether a new face cream will sting my skin and feel uncomfortable, …
