We totally can’t believe how fast September has come, if you are mummy/parent bloggers like us then you would have had a long holiday break with your kids enjoying the fabulous and almost perfect Summer. Hope your kids, as ours, are now ready to head back to school and meet up with their friends and get into a set routine again. Last month, we shared a lovely Gift Guide Post with gift ideas as well as activity ideas to keep the little ones busy during the holidays. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to comment and share your thoughts on our blog post as well as our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter social media channels. It is always great to get feedback from our readers as this motivates us to share more especially as we consider ourselves social media influencers and love helping others decide on what products to buy or where to head on Family Days Out. This month, we are sharing with you products on beauty, style and food ideas. We start with SKINIRVANA Pure Bliss Beauty Oils, which is 100% chemical free for mums (who totally need this after the long summer) and equally not forgetting the dads, we also share the Bioderma Sebium Purifying Foaming Gel / Sebium / Sensibio Forte beauty set. As Autumn slowly creeps in, we try out some pickles and chutneys by The English Provender Co which is great for BBQs (before you store it away permanently for next year). The Roqberry Mixed Box assorted teas and infusions is great for someone who is adventurous with their drink tea while sitting with a good book. Finally, we share where you can get your little Harry Potter fan a Hogwarts Backpack just in time for the new school term. Do enjoy reading our selection for this month and feel free to leave your comments.
Mary Lobo, the founder of SKINIRVANA, suffered from eczema and rosacea in her early twenties and decided to launch Skinirvana beauty products four years ago. We were sent SKINIRVANA Pure Bliss Beauty Oils which are hand poured, 100% natural, chemical-free, never tested on animals, vegan and contain over 95% ingredients from organic origin for fragile skin. This is a really lovely product and I really loved trialling this over a period of a week and I felt as though it made my face feel nourished. Being filled with essential oils I thought it would be greasy but it didn’t feel like this at all. It made my skin feel lovely and smooth. The 30ml luxury bottles uses a pipette to dispense the oil, this can be a bit tricky to use as you try not to squeeze out too much. This would be perfect as a gift, however, it does come at a cost of £45. As someone who tends to get a burning sensation when I use face creams etc, this product didn’t do that at all. So I can say its great for people with reactive skin. You can purchase yours here.
Roqberry Mixed Box assorted teas and infusions
This is perfect for anyone who wants to liven up their tea breaks but isn’t sure which flavours to choose. Containing 10 different, individually-wrapped pyramid teabags, this box gives you the chance to try a wide selection of blends. I’m a big fan of tea and drink several cups a day (and not just English breakfast), so I was eager to be even more adventurous with my brews. Each bag is given an intriguing name, such as Banana Bee (a rooibos herbal infusion) and Coco and Joe (a black tea). But the first blend to grace my mug was The Big Smoke, a black tea with a delicious, distinctive flavour. I also loved the Spiced Blueberry, which, being naturally caffeine-free, was ideal as a tasty evening cuppa. The teabags are biodegradable, and most of the tea in this box is made with 100% natural ingredients (except the Spiced Blueberry). Plus, each packet includes instructions on the best way to brew each blend. The Roqberry Mixed Box costs £6 and is available here.
