Make-up that is good for your skin

Do you like clogging your pores with parabens, heavy metals or even hormone disrupting chemicals?

No? Nope, me neither!

Have you ever thought about what your make-up is made of?

Nope, me neither! Well until recently…..have a read of these and then have a look at Neal’s Yard Organic make-up.

The Good: (Hurrah for ethical shopping)

Good shopping guide NYR 100

The Bad: (Toxic load in make-up is astonishing)

avoid these cosmetics


make up offer


As a fan of natural skincare, I’ve started looking at what goes into my make-up. I’m struggling with some congested pores at the moment (nice!) and along with increasing hydration and cutting back on trigger foods, I’ve been working hard with my skin care routine using a mixture of the Palmarosa, Rose and Frankincense NYR ranges. I don’t want to them undo all my hardwork by putting a toxic load of pore clogging chemicals on my face!

I tried out the NYRO range last week and couldn’t believe how GOOD it felt on my skin. It didn’t feel heavy and honestly like my skin was BREATHING throughout the day. Plus using Palmarosa Mattifer  beforehand helped it stay on all day long.

I’m not very good with make-up but it looked great. I went for a natural look but you can vamp it up with our night time shades. Fancy trying it? Check out the full range for all skin tones.

I am very happy to celebrate #InternationalWomensDay.

How many of you have experienced being paid less than your male peers? Feeling marginalised just because you’re a woman? Have felt vulnerable just because you’re wearing a skirt? How many female leaders do you know of? How many of your female friends do an incredible yet silent job of raising their children or managing the household? How many of your female friends have started their own business? And how many times have you downplayed your achievements or said ‘Oh it’s only a little thing?’

I am incredibly proud to be part of NYRO, who have come TOP in the world’s most ethical shopping companies, who have strong developmental and supportive links helping empower women. It’s not a nameless marketing trick, but a genuine relationship. I listened to Susan Curtis speaking yesterday on her trips to Africa and sharing her experience and photos of the great work NYRO do out there.

For example, our organic frankincense is gathered by the Samburu Tribe in northern Kenya. As well as a much needed income, the women receive a 10% social premium, which helps to support their children’s education.

So, stand up and be proud to be a woman.  You don’t always need a megaphone but can support by simply shopping with a Fairtrade company. So why not treat yourself or a wonderful girl friend and enjoy that warm, fuzzy feeling knowing 10% of your purchase goes directly to Women fow Women International. (Plus there is still £5 off selected gifts so save money for yourself AND support the charity – yes pelase!)




I’ll let the below post describe more accurately the work NYR actually do.

Happy International Women's Day! Today we're donating 10% of sales to Women for Women International to support their…
