Autumn Favourites

Hello Autumn!
As Summer has officially left us for this year....we are now in AutumnI wanted to write my first seasonal post. In this post, i will talk you through some of my favorite Vegan Beauty products which will help you feel like its still Summer :)

The first product is a Perfume! I am a sucker for anything Citrus or Sweet scented. I picked up this Perfume whilst on holiday in France over the Summer.

Its by a company called L'OCCITANE en Provence. It is an Eau de Toilette which is scented Organic Verbena for a dazzling scent burst. It smells like a refreshing slice of lemon, its sweet and zesty at the same time!!! 
The Packaging is stunning. It comes in a Eco-friendly box which has come from sustainable forests, and the Perfume comes in a beautiful Glass bottle with a leaf design. It looks very high end when its sitting on my Perfume stand!
It is long wearing. I use this perfume pretty much everyday, and it lasts from the morning into the evening. Its delightful!I sometimes struggle with Perfumes, as some are too floral for me, others are too strong or some don't have the scent i like. 

L'OCCITANE do not Test on Animals. 

You can read their position here-

It really is a Summer fragrance, but who says you can't wear it in the Autumn/Winter? 



Keeping on with the scented theme,i have really been loving the 24hour Bionsen Dermoprotective deodorant! 
In the Summer, i wore this pretty much everyday, and it kept me fresh, smelling lovely, even in the heat and being very Active!

This Deodorant is very gentle on the Skin, and can be used on Sensitive Skin. Bionsen is Alluminuum and Parabens Free, which is great news. You can read all about Parabens here-
Bionsen do not test on Animals and their ingredients come from Natural Minerals found in the Japanese volcanic spa's and is Sutable for Vegans.
 Its a little pricy at the £2.60+ mark but its worth it if you want to keep fresh and stay dry.



Autumn is the perfect time to start wearing more Reds, Burned Oranges and Neutral colours on your lips. I have been obsessed with making my Lips look Hydrated and healthy. I love Red Lipsticks, but it always tends to end up smudged.

I was sent this Inika lipstick to test out.

Recently i have written a post on Inika and some of their products, you can check it out by clicking the link below-

This Lipstick is a gorgeous burnt Orange/Gold Colour great for the Autumn.What i really like about this lipstick is that it stays on. When i first tried it i had to layer it a few times as the oils in the lipstick are better when they are warm until you have your desired look.It is a really nice lipstick paired with Autumn clothes. 

I love the packaging which is the same as with all Inika products. Its really stylish in black and gold.
You can pick up this Lipstick on Inika's website linked below along with lots of stunning colours-

This product retails at £18.00 (Which seems a lot but its worth it for the lasting power and Quality)



Sticking with the Lips, i recently picked up this Balance Me Lipgloss. This Lipgloss is made of 100% Natural ingrednets. It contains moisture, so it leaves your Lips Chapped-Free and protects delicate Lips. 

The Colour is a deep red, perfect for this time of Year. It is not greasy or Sticky and has a nice little shimmer which i personally love! The Smell is delicious. It smells like Almonds.....maybe as 'Sweet Almond Oil' is its first Ingredient :P 

This Lip gloss would be nice on an Autumn night out, with a little Black dress and its a nice change from wearing Lipstick.



Last of all is a Hair Mask. As you know i love a good Hair mask. I like to make my own Hair Masks when i can but when i don't have time to go in the kitchen and make one fresh, i like to reach for this wonderful little product.

This is the Luminois Colour Masque by Maria Nila. 

It has a few benefits:
-Sulfate & Parabens Free
-100% Vegan Ingredients
-Protective Pomegranate
-Colour Guard Complex
-UV protection

As it states on Maria Nila's website-
''When we develop new products it is important for us to always dig deep into the latest research to find the most healthy ingredients for the scalp, the animals and environment. None of our products has been tested on animals and we constantly strive to make all of our products 100 % vegan''

This Hair Mask nourishes Hair and leaves it silky and smooth. As its coming up to Winter, Hair begins to get dryer, so its the best time to start using Moisturising & nourishing Hair masks. I use this Hair mask once a week for Deep Conditioning and extra love. 

If you haven't already, check out the Maria Nila webiste, its fresh, fun with some wonderful products!!!!



All these products are great quality & would be lovely wrapped up as a special gift for any beauty lover!
