The primary ingredient is Jojoba oil, so it has to be applied in very small quantities and massaged into damp toned skin to avoid any greasy consistency. Suki says the serums are very uniquely concentrated and when used as directed, they should not be at all greasy. The Suki Blue Chamomile Serum is actually indicated for oily skin. I really liked this product. It was very mild and kind to my skin. It did seem to improve the pimple situation a bit, although there is still no magic cure. The Suki Blue Chamomile serum and the Suki Pure Cosmetics range is available at Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.

Dr Alkaitis will be launching in the UK this summer. Ever since I discovered Dr Alkaitis in the
Dr Alkaitis’ organic skincare is already a cult range in the US and it has a huge celebrity following with written endorsements from Sharleen Spiteri (Lead Singer Texas) and Billy Zane (actor & director) featuring in their site.
I love the whole range, each and every product. It is so hard to choose just one product. The Dr. Alkaitis Purifying Cleanser and Nourishing Treatment Oil leave my skin unusually soft and the clarity is amazing. The Organic Replenishing Serum feels divine. I don't generally endorse products this heartily. Maybe it's to do with the fact that all Alkaitis' products are organic aloe-based rather than water based. Maybe it's because of the high concentration of all those lovely ingredients. Whatever it is, I'm sold. Dr Alkaitis organic skin care is being launched in the

Any downsides? Nvey Eco concealer doesn’t come in enough shades. It comes in only two colors which works well on fair to light tan skin tones. Anyone with deep-medium to darker skin, however, will probably find this concealer to be too light. Besides that, this is a very nice concealer. If you have fair to medium skin, I recommend giving it a try. NVEY ECO Organic Erase Concealer (£13.95) and the full Nvey Eco Organic Makeup line are available from Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.

I recently received a sample of the Juice Beauty Tinted Lip Moisturiser in Joyful. This Lip Moisturiser retails at £5.95 and also comes in a trio pack (Joyful, Playful and Delightful - £13.95). It smells great, very juicy berry/cherry flavour, although when you put it on you don’t taste it much. It gives a little hint of colour, although I would have preferred it without, not that I don’t like tinted lip balms, it’s just that I am not convinced by the colour of this one. This is not a greasy, glossy lip balm, which may be perfect for some. For me however, who has dry lips, it is a little dry and will not slide on the lips the way I like it. I was really looking forward to try this Juice Beauty Lip Moisturiser because I'm still looking for my perfect lip balm but for me this is not it. If you are looking to protect your lips from the sun and don't like the greasy feeling, this could be just the ticket. Juice Beauty SPF15 Tinted Lip Moisturiser and the entire Juice Beauty line is available from Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.

I absolutely adore Suki and it is probably the best natural cosmetics range I’ve ever tried, and I’ve tried many. So when I was told that Suki was going to launch Suki Color I was delighted. Because of the huge demand for Suki samples, I’ve only managed to get my hands on the Suki Lip & Cheek stain in Dhalia, the only colour available in a sample at the time. I first used this product on my cheeks and I didn’t really go WOW! because I found the colour slightly brownish and I am more of a pinkie blusher kind of girl, but it grew on me. I would have liked this blusher to have a more creamy texture, so it is best used after your moisturiser or facial oil. As a lip stain it didn’t work for me. It was too dry and I would have liked a little bit more gloss to it. If you are on a budget, like most of us are, then at £31.95 it’s pricey and I would rather spend £13.50 on an Nvey Eco blusher or two. The Suki Lip & Cheek stain and the entire Suki natural cosmetics range is available at Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.

The packaging of this Earth’s Beauty Lipstick is very deceiving. It is quite plain and the Travel Size looks like children’s make up, but the quality is actually rather good. It feels as moist as a lip balm, slightly glossy and slightly shear. I received the Earth's Beauty Lipstick in Rose Quartz and although the color didn’t much my skintone completely, I still like using it. It is a medium pink with a light lilac undertone and because it is not a natural tone of pink, it is more of an evening shade. I would love to try some of the other colours and find my right shade. The full size costs £11.95 and the travel/tester size £5.95 and although it is tiny, I think it can still last you for a month using it everyday. I would definitely buy this lipstick again. Feels like a lip balm and has no taste or smell to it. The Earth’s Beauty Lipstick and natural mineral makeup range is available at Naturisimo The Organic Skincare Company.
