Dielle Nail Polish

Dielle Nail Polish

I had never heard of the brand Dielle prior to receiving these nail polishes, but when I heard it was owned by brownbeauty, Rosalie Audon I knew I had to support. Dielle means goddess as Rosalie wanted every woman to be more aware of her value. She also donates proceeds to organisation’s in Haiti to help support women and children. As if all of that wasn’t enough, the nail polishes are toxic free, meaning they do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, DBP, Camphor or Phalic acid. The polishes are made in France, from premium quality ingredients and are not test on … Read More

Beauty Idol: Hope Jikiemi from Epoh-Ireti

I met Hope Jikiemi at a friend’s birthday dinner last year where she told me about her candle brand, Epoh-Ireti. It consists of ethical luxury soy candles which are hand crafted in Britain. Hope started the company to celebrate the pending birth of her son. She sent us the Vanilla and Black Pepper Candle to review and I was impressed by the stylish packaging and gorgeous aroma.

The Vaseline Cocoa Butter line includes three different products all formulated to work in different ways. Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion is … Read More

I have never used a Sea Salt Body Scrub before but I have heard a lot about it and I am aware of its many benefits.

Lord&Berry Supreme Eye Pencils

Lord&Berry Supreme Eye Pencils

I’m most familiar with Lord&Berry through their lipsticks, which I love, so it’s no wonder this brand from Milan have become known for their eye and lip products. I finally got to delve into some of their eye products and see what all the fuss is all about. This eye and lip specialist have introduced a new offering to their vast range, that takes inspiration from the runways, called Supreme Eye Pencils.

They have stayed away from the normal brown and black eyeliners and introduced some rich jewel tones. I have the three new shades called Smart Green, Smart … Read More
