Review: Viridian Essential Female Multi Vitamin

Review Viridian Essential Female Multi Vitamin
I have been taking vitamin supplements on and off over the years because I can’t escape the fact that I have food allergies and my diet lacks in certain areas. Back in December I visited a Dietitian who suggested I monitor my calcium, vitamin C and D intake as I may be lacking due to my allergy to milk, OAS to fruit and I do not eat meat.

Free From Skincare Awards 2015 - Judging & Shortlists

Free From Skincare Awards 2015 Judging Shortlist
One of the awesome events I get involved with through my blog is the Free From Skincare Awards. It was really lovely to be asked back for my third year of judging. There was a switch around in the system this year, the Beauty Bible testers got their hands on products first. Usually, I have been involved in shortlisting ahead of testing. It was really interesting to work with tester feedback when judging products. Last week I helped select Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in four categories. Oh my goodness knowing the secrets I do it is so exciting and I can't wait until July when the announcements are made at the Love Natural Love Organic show on 3rd July 2015 at Olympia.

To give you a bit of background, the awards were founded in 2012 to encourage and reward manufacturers of skincare products that are ‘free from’ many of the allergens, ingredients, additives and artificial fragrances associated with skin sensitivities, health concerns, as well as ethical, personal and environmental issues. Over 150 products from more than 100 skincare brands have made the shortlist of the fourth annual Free From Skincare Awards. To view the Shortlist visit
www.skinsmatter.comNeal’s Yard Remedies lead the way with five shortlisted products, followed by four brands with four shortlisted products – Ayumi, Botanicals, JustBe Botanicals and Zk’in.

Reviews Samples Natural & Organic skincare Andalou Naturals, PHB Ethical Beauty, 100% Pure, John Masters
You spend a Sunday tidying up and realise you have accumulated a bigger stash of samples than you expected. In the last few weeks I decided to tackle the pile and get testing. I can’t give you a lengthy review but I can provide first impressions and let you know if I would part with my cash on the full size.

Gorgeously Green Gathering: Meet the Brands - Myroo

Myroo Starflower Orange Blossom Skin Boost Facial Serum
A little recap for you in the "Meet the Brands" Interview Series so far we've covered Botanical BrandsThe Rose Tree and Bodhi & Birch. I suspect that out of the five brands attending Gorgeously Green Gathering, Myroo is the one most of you are not familiar with. I have had the pleasure of knowing Rachael since 2012 when we bonded over twitter regarding allergies. I have also reviewed her Starflower Orange Blossom Skin Boost Facial Serum which I highly recommended. Jen, Rachel and I decided to have Myroo involved in our event because we wanted to share with attendees at least one brand that was perhaps "off the radar" with bloggers.
