So Eco Make Up Brushes

*PR sample

When it comes to make up application, I'm very particular with the brushes I use but I'm always keeping my eye out for new innovative ways to 'put my face on'. For the past month I have been using two new base brushes from the sustainable beauty brand So Eco, who have successfully developed a range of eco-friendly cosmetic brushes made from 100% ethically resourced materials.

The brush handles are made from bamboo and the bristles are formed from cruelty-free Taklon, even the product packaging is biodegradable! I had the pleasure of testing out the flat foundation brush and the stippling brush, which I have been using daily. I prefer to use the stippling brush to blend my foundation all over the face, buffing to evenly apply product. I like to use the foundation brush to pat concealer and powder on the under eye as it gives more precision and I especially love how the colour of the bristles have been chosen to help show you how much make up is on the brush head.

So Eco is available in store at selected UK supermarkets and online at

The Body Shop White Musk L'Eau

*PR sample

The Body Shop's White Musk fragrance is somewhat a nostalgic scent for me, it's a classic from the brand that I've known for years. Back with a refreshed new look the White Musk L'Eau de Toilette now has a new 100% vegan formula that is free from animal testing.

Blended with delicate floral and fresh fruit notes with a soft musk base note, it's a light and pleasant fragrance perfect for the transition into Spring. It doesn't sit heavy on the skin and is a lovely uplift throughout the day. It's also the perfect size to keep in your handbag to spritz on the go!

Lee Stafford Coco Loco

Lee Stafford is one of my go to high street hair brands, I adore the Argan oil range and now I've fallen in love with the Coco Loco collection, found in Boots stores. Here are my chosen favourites..

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Shampoo & Conditioner - £5.99 each
The perfect duo for keeping hair clean and soft, these two products are enriched with lauric acid to keep locks looking luscious for longer. The consistency isn't heavy on the hair and rinses out with ease, the shampoo doesn't lather as much as I'd hope but needless to say I love the results.

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Blow & Go Genius Lotion - £6.99
On towel dry hair I like to apply this product through the ends before drying and heat styling. The key ingredient is Coconut oil which helps to nourish and maintain moisture, leaving it soft and smooth. Hair appears sleeker and shinier instantly, protected against frizz. 

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Coconut Dry Shampoo - £4.99
I use this in between washes to refresh the hair of oily roots. It is incredibly lightweight and doesn't leave unwanted powdery patches on the scalp. Best of all it has a pleasing coconut fragrance that lingers through the day.
