Over the last month or so I've been getting more and more into natural and cruelty free beauty products and have realised that in almost all areas there are viable alternatives to many of the products I repurchase simply out of habit. I've heard really great things about RMS beauty products but the thing that always put me off indulging in any of them was the price. However, I really do think this was just a poor excuse because I can think back and remember spending more money on similar products from brands like Benefit and Dior so I think my real hesitation was about whether natural beauty alternatives were worth splashing out on. This month I've been reading more blogs that feature (sometimes exclusively) natural beauty products - Ana Goes Green, The Ramblings of a Beauty Bird, Sugarpuffish, Beauty Balm, NatuRia Beauty, Amber's Beauty Talk - and from their blogs and their reviews I got the impression that I should bite the bullet and go for it.
Once I'd made the decision to invest I just had to work out which products to go for. I had a lot of help on twitter which I really appreciated and in the end I opted for RMS Beuaty's Beauty's Buriti Bronzer (RRP £25) and RMS Beauty's Living Luminzer (RRP £30). I looked into purchasing them from Love Lula and Naturisimo as both had £10 off vouchers on a £50 spend. In the end I opted for Naturisimo because I could choose 5 free samples with my order. I picked up free sachet samples of Lavera's Wild Rose 24 Hour Moisturising Cream, Lavera's Soft Moisturising Creme and A'kin's Purely Revitalising Firming Night Creme. I also chose a free sample of Pai's Kukui and Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliater (which at first glance seems gorgeous). Lastly, I also managed to get a free Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream. I actually received the same eye cream in a goody bag not long ago so I'm going to give this away to one of you lovely lot.
For a chance to win a brand new 10ml Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream leave a blog comment telling me about anything that you've bought for yourself recently that you'd recommend and leave your email address or twitter handle so I can contact you if you win! Good luck and thank you all for your continued support :) The giveaway will run for roughly one calendar week (ending at midnight on the 7th November) and I will pick the winner at random.
