Lavera natural cosmetics - trend make up

OK Magazines Beauty Director Emma Gunavardhana talks lavera!

There's more to buying cosmetics and skincare than the desire to 'buy a cleanser' or 'get a new lipstick'. We want something that works, makes us feel good and something we can rely on and come back to again and again. We are a discerning consumer, false promises or inadequate products won't last long, that's what makes lavera's 25th anniversary this year all the more special. It's a heritage that shows real truth in a brand that inhabits a unique place in the beauty market, it's 100% natural and organic. 47 lavera products are sold every minute across more

Terre d'Oc - mineralise your skin For those of you who haven't heard of terre d'Oc then let me tell a bit of background information. It's a French range, certified natural and organic by ECOCERT and produces absolutely gorgeous natural mineral make-up.

Argan Oil the product that does everything

I've always been quite sceptical about putting oil on my face - when you're used to creams, an oil seems abit too adventurous. But after the cold winter, my skin felt like it needed that extra dose of moisture, as dry, red skin wasn't a good look for the new year! So, after reading many many articles on the benefits of argan oil I thought it was time to be a daredevil and buy an oil for my face . So, before I start, my vision of putting an oil on your face meant more

Florascent is a beautiful range of natural and organic perfume and home fragrances that do not contain any synthetics or chemical nasties, only the purist naturally-occurring substances from the finest fragranced ingredients nature offers.
