DERMIKELP Beauty Review - Spring Hair & Body Care - Sustainable Beauty

Dermikelp
Dress online here /

Paid advertorial - As a beauty lover, it’s always exciting for me when a new brand comes to the market and ticks all the boxes. In today's beauty spotlight is Dermikelp, a brand I’ve been watching with interest since I heard about it last year. Dermikelp is a new range of body and hair care made with nutrient-rich sea kelp. Before I use new products, I always try and understand a bit about their background. I fall in love with brands that little bit more once I start to understand their story and the background of their founders - it really makes a difference to me. Dermikelp was launched by Dr Nigel Christie, a marine biologist who, in the first instance, developed kelp products for agricultural use, and following its success turned his attention to exploring the potential of sea kelp to nourish skin.

Gifted press products featured and Ad affiliate links - I’m massively into a lot of things, pizza, chocolate, travel, fitness - my life is just one big balancing act if I’m honest. Another thing I adore? Skincare. I’m very lucky that in my job, I get to trial many new products (read all about gifted press items if you're wondering why influencers are 'gifted' things) and in all honesty, it means I switch my skincare around a lot. I obviously have my hero, holy grail favourites which you’ll see on my vlogs and on the blog a lot if you’re long time readers/followers but today, I want to talk to you about some brand new skincare products I’ve been using this spring to make my skin glow. There are so many epic skincare products out there and I just love trying them all. I thought I’d do a little beauty round up of the current new skincare products I’m loving for a spring glow.

‘Gifted’ is a word that is popping up everywhere on social media recently and the subject is something I feel is worthy of its own blog post firstly to allay any confusion and to explain what ‘gifted’ really means. I love listening to what people have to say on different subjects, one of the most amazing things about the whole social media world is that everyone gets an opportunity to share their views and those views are often so varied and different which absolutely fascinates me. The perception I get from listening to a wide community of followers on the subject of things being ‘gifted’ is that when the word gifted is used then bloggers must be receiving everything for free. I’ll be honest, it’s for this reason I don’t personally like the word ‘gifted’ and the reasons for that will hopefully become clear throughout this post but in a nutshell, unlike a present given by a friend or family members, media ‘gifts’ usually require some work before deciding whether or not to talk about them.

Erborian CC Eye Cream Review - The Low Down On BB and CC Creams

Erborian CC Eye Cream Review
Gifted PR items featured and Ad affiliate links used - We're all busy and always on the go plus with my job I'm quite often in front of a camera for photo shoots so I’m always looking for ways to ensure I can make my skin look good without endless hours of effort. I'm also always looking for ways to hide my tiredness as I usually have quite puffy eyes. I'm definitely a quick-get-ready kinda gal and would rather have an extra ten minutes in bed.  One thing that has helped me tremendously over the years is the range of CC/BB creams on the market and I rarely wear make up without applying them first in the warmer months. I definitely feel as if I up my CC/BB game in Spring, as soon as the weather starts to get a little nicer I slather it on. In fact, on non-make up days I often use them to even out my skin tone and give me a healthy glow without popping any foundation over the top. Today I'm going to talk to you about an epic new CC eye cream, Erborian's CC Eye Cream, yep, I've used BB and CC face creams for years but never an eye cream version. Let's discuss.
