I thought September’s Look Fantastic Beauty Box was good, but I was even more pleased with this October box due to the range of top brands included inside.

Yogandha – Balance Roll-On Body Oil

Yogandha – Balance Roll-On Body Oil

If you’re a regular reader of Beauty Best Friend blog you may have noticed that I’ve been AWOL for a few days – that’s because I’ve been busy with other things… Two weeks ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter, so blogging has had to take a back seat for a few days whilst I take care of her and we try to get into a routine. I was also struck down by a kidney infection which was the last thing I needed, but luckily I’m feeling much better now and we’re starting to get into some kind of a routine. A few days before I gave birth I was sent this Roll-On Body Oil* from Yogandha and it couldn’t have come at a better time! Available in three scents I chose the Balance variety to help balance and normalise my hormones after having a baby – the other two fragrances are stress relieving Ground and uplifting Salute. All of Yogandha’s wellness oils are 100% natural, vegan and...

Dibi Milano – Pure Perfection Sebo-Balance Cream & Cleansing Gel

Dibi Milano – Pure Perfection Sebo-Balance Cream & Cleansing Gel

I’d never heard of Dibi Milano before a couple of weeks ago, but I have a feeling they’re going to be big news over the coming months. It’s one of Italy’s best-selling skincare brands and they’ve recently launched here in the UK. Their products are split into seven product lines, each one targeting a specific skin issue including sensitive skin, dull skin and wrinkles. I was sent two products from the Pure Perfection range, aimed at oily and problem skin, which help to balance the production of sebum (oil) and fight bacterial growth. Pure Perfection Sebo-Balance Cleansing Gel* – this is a translucent pale golden cleansing gel that you can use morning and night to cleanse the skin. I found it a bit strange because you expect it to foam when you apply it but it doesn’t, it works a bit more like a cream cleanser in that you massage it into the skin then rinse it off with warm water. The bottle is very rigid and I found...

The Body Shop – Rainforest Balance Shampoo & Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter

The Body Shop – Rainforest Balance Shampoo & Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter

You may have already read that I have recently made the move to using natural shampoo and conditioner, following a problem with an itchy scalp (read about that here). I was interested to find out what other natural shampoos and conditioners were out there, and came across the Rainforest haircare collection from The Body Shop®. As this is such an affordable range I thought I would try it out, and none of the Rainforest range contains any silicones, colourants or parabens which can irritate the scalp. Rainforest Balance Shampoo is for oily hair, so I chose this as I have found that that my hair and scalp have been more oily since I started using natural shampoos as they don’t strip the oil from your hair like regular shampoos. This shampoo contains a number of natural ingredients including pracaxi oil, white nettle and seaweed plus Community Trade sugar and aloe vera. The thick, clear shampoo gives an ok lather on the first application – better than a lot of natural...
