Zuzka Natural Beauty

As some of you know for the last year I have been suffering with acne. It actually got so bad that I went into hiding! I stopped going to work, I stopped seeing friends and family and I just felt so down that when I went to the doctors they prescribed me antidepressants. 

I was at all time low and I didn't think that I would ever feel happy again. However I made the decision to not comply with the antidepressants as I knew that what ever it was I was going through could not possibly be permanent, I was trying to reassure myself that it is just a season and for that reason I wanted to over come it naturally. 

It was hard and at times it can still be hard as although my acne is no longer active the scaring is real! Which makes me self-conscious but I am in a much better mental space now than I was a couple of months ago.

Some of the products that helped me overcome this dreadful phase were cool blue cleansing lotion and cool blue contour day cream. 

Both the products were soothing which helped my acne as my face was becoming extremely itchy and dry. 

What I love about Zuzka products is that they are all made with natural and organic ingredients. Zuzka encourage their customers to care for their skin in a way that is pleasurable and therapeutic.

Taitus Botanicals Experience

August 2016 was a whirlwind of a month for me; I can only describe it as the beginning of an end, both a physical and mental transition.

The struggle between balancing a job I hated and being a student nurse was coming to an end. However, the exciting challenge of turning my lifestyle choices into a blogging career was now on the horizon.

Thus, receiving Taitus Botanicals body wash, natural soap, hair and body oil was a welcomed blessing. At a time, when all I truly needed was to relax and nurture my mind, body and soul.  

At only £6.45 / $8 a bottle the ‘Lavender Body Wash’ lives up to its description of cleansing and moisturising the skin. Its ingredients, just to name a few include organic coconut oil, aloe Vera and an infusion of essential oils.

I was in heaven; I literally did not want to get out! I do not remember the last time I felt that relaxed. I left my hour-long bath feeling and smelling like a Nubian queen.

I don’t know where to start with the ‘Rosemary Peppermint Hair and Body Oil’ (£6.45 / $8 a bottle). This oil was 10/10! I cannot explain to you how much I was feeling the consistency. It is so hard to find an oil that isn’t too thick or too runny. I am not exaggerating when I say that product is perfect. Not only did the formula hydrate and moisture my hair and skin the aroma captured everybody’s attention.

Last, but not least, the ‘natural soap’ (£4.90 / $6). The earthy fragrance was out of this world. After using Taitus’s Soap I did not feel the roughness I usually feel after washing my hands and I did not get the typical urge to cream my hands as this soap is not made with any harsh chemicals.
