Cosmetics for Women

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques

I have discovered Lauren Brooke Cosmetics a few years ago and I totally adore their products.

Find out about Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques mission here

This is extremely hard now to find cosmetics that are not tested on animals and safe to use at the same time.

You have to be so careful with what you apply on your skin, once absorbed it can reach every organs transported via your blood stream.I also have learnt that it’s safer not to use foundation in the form of loose powder so I don’t use loose powder anymore.


Before making a purchase, I always research the ingredients even if there are not listed
So many brands, especially those testing on animals usually don’t disclose the harmful components of their ingredients list.
You can see all the ingredients of each product on Laure Brooke’s website.

The ingredients are high quality, organic GMOs free. You can’t dream of better ingredients to put on your skin.

Choosing the right foundation is really important.
Lauren Brooke gives you the possibility to try small sample sizes and it’s a brilliant idea, I would recommend to try several shades before purchasing a full size.
I have tried the samples myself and I have finally found the perfect match for me. I have ordered a 10 Warm, it’s the lightest color and even though I have olive tone skin, it blends perfectly.
Don’t forget that you will apply blush, sun powder.. So don’t go too dark but not too light either of course.
Don’t forget to put foundation on your neck too. I used to have a friend in High School who was wearing a foundation two shades darker to look tanned and she was not putting foundation on her neck and it looked really weird, plus the color was far too dark and not matching her skin tone.

Remember less is more when you use make up.
To determine what is the right tone for you, apply a stripe of foundation on your down cheek, the best match will disappear on the skin and blend.
My color matching guide.

The cool shades work best for people who have pinkish red undertones in their skin. Very sensitive to sun.
The neutral shades work best for people who have yellow undertones, peachy hue, sensitive to sun.
and the warm shades work best for people who have yellow, orange golden tones in their skin. Likely tans easy.

That being said, each person is so individual and the best way to find out is to apply a small amount and see which shade just disappears into your skin.

I love Lauren Brooke’s foundation. It looks so natural and gives you a perfect buildable coverage (depending on how many layers you apply), it enhances your complexion without clogging your pores, and gives you this dewy finish.
I have so many Lauren Brooke products in my make up bag.


Other Lauren Brooke I love:

The body glitters are fantastic too. I love everything that sparkles and those mineral body glitter are absolutely amazing.
I have also purchased two adorable perfume rolls. Whimsy smells like if you are entering a spa: this is what I think. Allure smells like a sun lotion,I love both but I haven’t tried other smells yet.
The compact blushes give you a glow and I wear Sweet Sixteen or Caramel depending on what I am wearing or the result I want to get.

Not all the products are Vegan, some of them contain organic beeswax and silk but there is so much choice already and more to come. You can easily find out which one are vegan by looking at the ingredients list.
I insist on the fact that are cruelty free and organic.




















It’s very difficult now to find cruelty free and products without harmful chemicals.
The lip glosses are great and smell lovely but they are not vegan. The colors are so pretty.
So many brands are not cruelty free anymore, you know if you have read my other posts, so it’s really important to encourage the cruelty free brands, especially if they are organic and safe.
I know that Lauren is working on new vegan products.
I would really suggest to try the products, you won’t regret it.

I was not financially compensated for this post.I received samples of the products for review purposes.All views and opinions stated on this post are 100% my own.


Coming soon: Lauren Brooke cosmetics.

I am so excited to introduce you to this amazing brand. I’m so in love with the products.You will love them too, no doubt on this. We will talk foundation too and this is really important so bear with me.


“Lauren: Because I was beginning to question the safety of traditional skincare and makeup. I was questioning everything trying to figure out what my body needed. And the idea of making something that offers other women a choice not to use toxic makeup was intriguing to me. I started researching that. It took me a few years, but I learned how to make natural products and I began putting together my line.”

If you decide to order and you should, please mention that Valerie is sending you:)
Here is where you can find these amazing magical products:
And on FB :

Nadine and Ron kindly sent me two amazing products to review.
I have to tell you, I am so impressed.
I am very careful with the products I am using. First I only use products non tested on animals and the most natural as possible. Some products give me breakouts especially if they are very rich.
You will never see me shopping in the high street, I order my products online. I am not using many products just quality ones.


Let me show you the first product: Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever.

This product is absolutely amazing. It is a delight to use it, a truly magical product. It’s so versatile. Don’t be intimated by the fact that it is an oil. It doesn’t leave any greasy residue on your skin. I am completely in love with this product.
This their best seller product and I understand why. It is like heaven in a bottle.
Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever is the foundation creation for radiant skin. This body and face product is “all-in-one” for cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. Of all the Best Skin Evers, this one and Rose Best Skin Ever are the best choices for the face and can also be used on the body. Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever is the ultimate choice for brilliantly cleansing, moisturizing and toning the skin.
All Pure Organic and/or Wild crafted Ingredients: super-critical Sea buckthorn oil, golden jojoba oil, virgin coconut oil, tamanu oil, lavender, vetiver, grapefruit, and palmarosa essential oils.
I am using it more as a moisturizer but this is very personal. I use it on my hair ends too.
I have used the whole bottle Nadine and Ron have sent to me and I have just ordered a new one. After using it my skin is so smooth and soft like silk. I love the smell of it.You know when you are using it that you are doing good for your skin.And the wonderful thing is that men can use it too.




The second product i have been sent is absolutely fantastic too.
Here it is: Healthy Gum Drops.


I have shown this product to my Holistic dentist and she said that it was a great product to use.
Quick Overview:
Healthy Gum Drops help you to have the healthiest mouth ever. Happy, healthy teeth and gums allow the full enjoyment of life’s sensuality. Your mouth is a reflection of your overall health. At last, a truly effective oral ecology product to reach every tiny crevice in your mouth.

For the healthiest gums use these formulas for brushing, flossing, massaging gums, mouth-rinses, proxa-brushes, sulca-brushes, rubber-tip stimulators to overcome sensitive teeth, to ease the recovery of oral surgery, and for general overall cavity prevention.

These organic and wild-crafted ingredients create an effective anti-bacterial, anti-fungal anoint for all aspects of oral care. Add one drop to toothbrush, salt mouth rinses, massage into gums and glide a drop over dental floss to cleanse the tiny spaces in between the teeth.

GABRIEL. Gabriel Organics.

Today I will be reviewing the normal to combination Skincare series with white seaweed calming cleanser, the seaweed nourishing moisturizer and the sea mineral tonic.

Gabriel focuses on the rejuvenating and healing qualities that are derived from the sea ingredients that they use. They refer to themselves as pioneers in bringing these ingredients to you, which is wonderful.

We will start with the white seaweed calming cleanser. It smells great and made my skin incredibly soft, I strongly recommend this product as it left my skin feeling replenished.

Next is the sea mineral tonic which you apply with a cotton ball all over your face to prepare your skin for the moisturizer. The application was very easy and it made my skin feel fresh and very clean.

The last product is the series is the seaweed nourishing moisturizer which you apply after the toner, it did not feel too heavy on my face it got absorbed by my skin straight away and made me feel clean once again. My skin felt nourished and refreshed. The moisturizer is currently out of stock and it is so great that I am waiting eagerly for it to come back so that I can purchase another!

These products are organic and cruelty free which means not tested at all on animals which I find truly great and admirable.These a products are also vegan, GMOS and gluten free and there are no synthetic ingredients. I strongly recommend these products they are easy to use and work great together and have such a good ethical background to them.

I have ordered products myself.My hair is really damaged and I really want to try the Morrocco Method products. They are for sure wonderful , completely pure and wildcrafted organic.
I want to try the vegan lip tints and different other organic raw products.
I would actually love to try everything. the quality of the products is outstanding.
Here are a few pictures but you should go on the website to look at the delightful products. Enjoy:)













I have received these amazing products. I am delighted to review them because they are absolutely fantastic:
Organic and Hand-Selected Collection of the finest, most pure, vegan and raw skincare and body care products: age-defying serums, face and body …
The website shows a very impressive collection of exceptional products for men and women…You will be really impressed and the products are of a great quality. Please go on the website, look around and enjoy.

I’m so thrilled to have discovered Living Earth Beauty. I’m so excited to tell you about it. I adore this brand. I really love their products which by the way are made from natural, pure and organic ingredients.
This is the link to shop:
I recommend for you to go on the blog too. You will find awesome tips.
Living Earth Beauty is a small family owned and loved business located in Arizona. They are very passionate about health and the use of clean products on and in our bodies.

They envision a world where we live in health and harmony with the Earth and all beings. Living Earth Beauty is their expression of that vision. Your health and well-being is important to them, and it is their mission to offer you products which will heal you, nourish you, honor you, and enhance your natural beauty.

I love using natural products. They are a real pleasure to use.

I have allergies and I don’t want to use anything with nasty chemicals.

You have to be so careful with what you use. The strange ingredients add up and so do the harmful ingredients finding their way in your bloodstream. Some have the highest scores of toxicity and health hazards. Using those products, you are exposing your body to carcinogens, endocrine disruptors and harmful chemicals that could decrease your fertility.

I had very bad experiences in the past. I don’t easily trust spas. I had a facial and the lady left a permanent mark on my face. Plus it was at the time when I was not checking the labels and I’m sure that she was using products full of chemicals. Now I only use organic products.

Let’s jump into the review now.
-ISUN Alive & Ageless skincare



To introduce ISUN Organic Skin Care, Living Earth Beauty offers product sets in small sizes. Introductory Sets come in hemp bags with zippers. Each set includes full instructions for use.
This set is for maturing normal skin types and it contains: 30 ml – Phyto-Cleanse II 10 ml – Emerald Sun Hydrosol 10 ml – Ultra Restore Sample: Rhassoul Refining Exfoliant Sample: Chlorella Algae Mask.

The effects on me are spectacular, my skin is clean and soft like a baby’s skin.
I totally adore these products. They smell wonderful and make your skin look amazing. It’s like doing your own spa treatment at home.
I’m totally addicted now.
The scrub and the mask are truly amazing, your skin will look superb after using them.
The whole kit is a gem.
It comes with a citrus lip balm that you will love for sure.



– Isun Antioxidant Lip Tint Ruby:

This lip tint comes in an adorable little bag, it’s absolutely adorable and It smells so nice.
A total nutrient and moisture-rich lip tint with butters and oils containing high levels of antioxidants providing natural UV protection. This naturally tinted lip balm deeply nourishes your lips, keeps them moist and soft and adds a hint of color best described as a natural red. If you love a little bolder lip color, you will love this natural red Ruby tint!
This product contains organic beeswax .
It exists in different colors , you can check the website.


– Vegan Mineral eyeliner pencil

I have it in the color Grape.It’s actually a brown color with a hint of purple.
first I was not sure about the color but now I just love it.
This vegan eyeliner exists in different other colors,
First I love the fact that it’s vegan. You will find so many vegan options on this lovely website.
now I really enjoy the color especially when I’m using it with my fairybell eyeshadow. It lasts for so long, and it’s not dry like some eyeliners can’s a great product.

Earthlab’s eye liner pencils are handcrafted with natural plant products. A base of jojoba and natural waxes yields a wonderfully creamy texture that glides on smooth, lasts all day and washes off clean. This popular shade of ‘Grape’ when applied to the eye line, appears brown with a hint of purple. If your eye color is brown or hazel this is the color you want to wear. Earthlab’s eye liner pencils are handcrafted with natural plant products. The only truly Vegan pencil handmade in North America.

-Fairybell body shimmer

I was looking for a body shimmer that color for a very long time.
I just love it. It’s very shimmery. It sparkles. if you don’t like shimmery products like I do, you can find many other options on the website.



The Natural Color Fairybell body shimmer is great for adding a little sparkle to your skin wherever you want it — shoulders, arms, cheeks, eyes or wherever you dare!

Living Earth Beauty recommends applying it dry with a large brush such as the Deluxe Kabuki or Blush Brush.
I use it at the moment as an eyeshadow, then I will see in the summer.

– Moon Swoon Lip Shimmer

I love this product. the color is amazing, really shimmery. it’s a very soft color. on my lips , it looks baby pink.So pretty.
MoonSwoon Lip Shimmer glows with a weightless shimmer, a hint of sheer-sixties-white, and a burst of sparkling moonlight. Create instant pearls of illumination on brows and cheek bones, or grace upon lips for a goddess-like moonlit pout.

Layers of crushed gemstones from mineral-rich micas join with botanical roots to coalesce into scintillating, shimmering hues that dynamically interact with sunlight, indoor light, and the light of your smile. Shine divine with a balm created from organic oils of jojoba, happy beeswax, pure essences of jasmine, vanilla, lavender, lemon and mica.

* Living Libations lovingly and gently gathers their beeswax from their own happy bees in their pristine wilderness retreat.

* For vegans who do not use bee products, this product contains beeswax.
Same here you can find Vegan lip balms on the website.
