I'm continuing with my series to bring you some more Youtuber Favourite Swaps. The concept behind these is I’m looking at “mainstream” product recommendations and finding “Green” alternatives. I want to show you that it is possible to buy products which are similar to the high street options but better for you and the environment.
For anyone not following me on Instagram/Twitter you might not be aware that I've just come back from my Sister's wedding in Skiathos. Despite my extended family being Greek I have never visited this part of the world before now (usually we hop across to Spain or Portugal). My sister is a regular to the island so advised me to bring inspect repellent because from her experience the Greek bugs like the sweet taste of English blood. I haven't used repellent since my year long trip backpacking Australia. I did a little research on natural alternatives as I wanted to avoid DEET and in the end bought Eco by Sonya Personal Outdoor Spray from Love Lula**. I must admit I was sold on this for the fact it's an Australian brand and a good price in comparison to similar products.
I'm struggling to find the time to sit down and film so I've resorted to a blog post for my recent empties. It's a little collection of bits and bobs that have accumulated over the months as I don't film/write these on a regular basis.
Exfoliators are not something I use on a weekly basis, my skin is far to sensitive and prone to eczema for what are often harsh treatments. A muslin wash cloth with my cleanser is an adequate solution for me. I might use a scrub once a month or on holiday they are handy for removing the build up of SPF but it has to be super gentle.
