    Tropic Skincare

    *This post contains gifted items with no obligation to post and any opinions are my own Tropic skincare If you are like me you will have seen plenty of buzz around social media surrounding Tropic Skincare. I thought it simply to be another hyped up mail-order type brand with no real substance behind its advertising. Tropic Skincare stands with Cruelty-Free International, The Vegan Society and PETA as a 100% cruelty-free brand, now and always. The brand is supported by Sir Alan Sugar after Suzie Ma (tropic founder) appeared on The Apprentice. You can not only purchase directly from the Tropic shop online but you can also buy from a local…

    LifewithChristine is under construction!

    LifewithChristine is under construction! I have finally taken the plunge and scrapped the terrible WordPress themes (no offence WordPress!)   I have been seriously struggling to find a theme for my blog since I removed the PIPDIG one (you can read why here)   After the scandal regarding Pipdig being able to wipe out websites using a plugin I have to admit I got totally freaked. It is super disheartening for someone like me who has invested time (and money) building their website and creating content only to hear it can all be wiped out/destroyed etc.   Therefore I have been trying out a few WordPress themes in order to…

    Summer Skincare Essentials

    Summer Skincare Essentials. Gosh, it seems like no time ago that summer seemed miles away and now it is only round the corner! To this end, I thought it was time that we started to talk about the summer skincare ‘essential’ products that are needed to keep your skin healthy and nourished without leaving it exposed for sun damage and harm.   I spent a few months this year in Florida and with temperatures reaching 30 degrees in the winter months I became very aware of my skin and the products I needed to use to keep it in tip-top condition. We have all seen the scary images of the…

    Nads Wax for hair removal

    Nads Wax for hair removal. Summer is here! Yay to wearing my Birkenstocks until they fall off my feet and planning my summer vacations. I also dream about BBQ and wine spritzers.   I am heading to Portugal later in the year and I simply hate the thought of the hassle of hair removal while I am away. So I have been looking for better alternatives.   Waxing Waxing is not a permanent solution to hair removal. Instead, it will remove hair for a period of 4-6 weeks. This is perfect for vacations or special occasions. The hair is removed by placing wax on to the skin and pulling off.…

    Skin Genius Leave On purifying gel

    Skin Genius Leave On purifying gel is a natural solution for Acne. During my teenage years, I suffered slightly with acne breakouts.

First, you have the foaming facial wash, followed by the Leave-on purifying gel and finally the Soothing Moisturiser.   We have kindly been gifted the Leave On purifying Gel to try. I wanted to know…

    Sensual Sorcery by Stella Ralfini

    I recently got my hands of the new book by Stella Ralfini, Sensual Sorcery. I was initially put off by the name as I thought it may be a little ‘hocus pocus’ for my liking. However, after reading the first few pages, I was hooked! At 72, Stella looks stunning! She credits her health to her homemade recipes which use essential oils. The books tag line reads ‘Natural Beauty and Health Recipes.’ Sensual Sorcery is crammed full of natural recipes for all skincare concerns. This is Stella’s third book.   Stella has compiled an easy to follow guide detailing her favourite recipes for natural beauty. She believes that you have…
