Best Face Wash for Oily Skin

If you’ve been reading some of the posts on this website you would know by now that I’m only recommending natural and/or organic skincare products. Why? After studying natural skincare and seeing wonderful results in my friends and family I believe this is a route that should be at least tried and tested. After my menopause I couldn’t deal with ‘fake’ smells (still having trouble with some perfumes) and although I’m not really allergic to anything my body seems to …

Art Naturals Organic Argan Oil Hair Loss Shampoo Review

My hair has always been thin (very thin and curly) and when I was younger I remember looking at the top of my head noticing the bald-ish patch-area (which I also had around the sides of my head). I did try to hide the patches in numerous ways (although I have to say I was never too bothered about the bald-y areas, just bothered enough to comb the hair or style it in particular ways). Once I hit the menopause …

Best Organic Bee Pollen, What is Pollen Grain & Recommended Pollen Tablets

A few years back, when I first started thinking I should take care of my body (after having taken care of the ‘spiritual side of things’ first), I contemplated the idea of taking bee pollen.

And I did, for a …

Herbatint Hair Color Review & Why we Bought this Product I had never heard of Herbatint hair color til Lynn needed to dye her hair and we suddenly were forced to look for a natural solution that worked.We had never used any natural hair dye brands before, and I’m not an expert in applying permanent color to the hair either, so it was all a little cumbersome.

Floradix Iron: Is Salus Floradix the Best Liquid Iron Supplement?

About Our Floradix Iron Review…Lynn and I decided to take Salus Floradix® Floravital – which is basically the same as Floradix without the gluten and the yeast – because we feel tired most of the time. It could be due to the menopause but also the fact that we’re not getting any younger (and we don’t exercise as we should). After around 11 days of constant heartburn, a heavy feel to the stomach, looking for ways to disguise the taste …

Weleda Deodorant Review: a Citrus Roll-On that GAVE US A RASH!

​Lynn and I love going to natural stores just to browse. This time we picked a natural deodorant that has proven to be a complete disaster. Read below. After checking a few natural deodorants out, we opted for the Welleda one. I think it was the ‘citrus’ bit that got us, and the fact that it’s a roll-on, which always makes it look like the deodorants we feel familiar with.Anyway, here’s a photo of the Welleda natural deodorant:And here’s a …
