Spiezia is back!

Spiezia is back!
This week it is a pleasure to welcome back one of our favorite brands. After an absence of over 2 years, the newly re-launched Spiezia is back on our shelves. Spiezia is the ultimate organic skincare brand. Unlike many others, it offers a truly 100% organic and natural experience to such an extent that their products are actually edible. Using only certified ingredients, unique maceration formulas and hand-made in harmony with the lunar cycle on a farm in Cornwall, Spiezia Organics was the first to be accredited 100% organic by the Soil Association.
The Spiezia Organic Gentle Cleanser (£21.55) is still one my all-time favourites. This 100% Organic Cleanser was voted 10/10 by The Times and one of the top 25 skincare products. This deliciously scented cleanser melts away every trace of dirt and leaves skin incredibly clean and soft.
One of its latest additions of the range is the Spiezia Rose & Chamomile Gentle Face Scrub (£19.10), which benefits from a luxurious oil base. Thanks to the tiny pieces of organic chamomile stamen, skin is buffed so gently it's suitable for sensitive skins too.
The full newly launched Spiezia Organics is now available at

Makeup Summer09

Natural Makeup Update - Summer 09.
Green goddesses, it’s time to have a close look at your make-up as the new Summer 09 season is officially here and it’s the ideal time for a makeup update. We have been searching for the ultimate trends and testing the latest organic beauty products to help you choose only the best for this season. And here we go….
Bold lips are the biggest makeup trend this season. Winter was all about eyes and this season is about lips. If there’s one thing you do this season, it is to load your lips with colour. Statement lips were all over the catwalks with brilliant shades from tangerine and orange, to glossy corals and reds to dark rich chocolate browns.
Our natural lipsticks contain nourishing oils like jojoba, minerals and vitamins that make blending easy and replace artificial preservatives and petrochemicals. The latest formulas have a staying powder to rival that of its conventional counterparts. We love Suki Color Lip & Cheek Stain (£21.49) in Vermillion which is very durable and is best applied with a brush. For strong color with easy application, the Elysambre Organic Lipstick (£13.61) in Matte Carmine Pink Red is just perfect for summer.
If you are a lip gloss fan, you can still be on trend by choosing playful pinks, coral, raspberry red or strong fuchsia. We love the pigment-rich and hot pink gloss of Nvey Eco Lip Lustre (£15.95) in Temptress. For everyday shine, Living Nature Lipgloss in Berry Essence will give you lips a hint of delicious burgundy colour.
Complete your look but keeping eye makeup to a minimum. Define lashes lightly with soft eyeliner and mascara so attention is only brought to your lips. Lavera Natural Mascara (£10.70) and Lavera Natural Eyeliner Pencil (£6.12) are gentle on your eyes and are available on a number of shades to suit your complexion.
