   It’s not easy to find cosmetics that are completely natural, organic, and suitable for all skin types, so this week I’d like to introduce you to a relatively new business selling nothing but 100% ethical beauty products. Founded by Rose Brown, PHB Ethical Beauty launched their all-natural collection in 2012. The versatile range includes all kinds of amazing award-winning beauty, hair care, and skincare products for men and women, as well as gift sets and starter kits, all of which is handmade in the UK. Needless to say, PHB are against animal testing and all of their products are completely cruelty-free, but their products are also free from any animal products whatsoever and the company is registered with The Vegan Society UK. Their products are also free from alcohol, Parabens, SLS, and GM ingredients. Great care has even been taken in ensuring that the packaging is completely eco-friendly. Their products have won numerous awards, and the company has even been dubbed “The New Body Shop”. This truly is a caring-company!

   I happen to be a complete beauty-addict (no surprise there), especially when it comes to make up. It’s not at all uncommon to have reactions to cosmetic products, especially if our skin is sensitive or we suffer from skin conditions. Did you know that up to 60% of what we put on our skin can be absorbed into the blood stream? Commercial products tend to be packed with synthetic substances and nasty chemicals, so it’s no surprise that unpleasant skin reaction occur so frequently when we apply them. If you’re concerned about the effects that commercial concoctions may be having on your skin, why not switch to something more natural? PHB Ethical Beauty sells everything you could possibly need to transform your mass-produced make up collection into a skin-loving beauty bliss (including cleansers and brushes).

If, like me, you’re a lover of mineral make up, I’d definitely recommend considering PHB’s Mineral Miracles collection. Everything in this range is free from dyes, chemicals, animal ingredients, alcohol, preservatives, gluten, fillers, oils, talc, and GM ingredients. It also contains sun protection and zinc oxide (a natural product which is great for treating acne), and is Vegan and Halal Certified.

  I was lucky enough to try out one of PHB’s best-sellers, the All-In-One Natural Mascara. It’s available in two shades, black and brown (I went for black). This award-winning product is a great “go-to mascara” as it combines the benefits of lengthening and volume-boosting mascaras into one. It’s also kind to the eyes and waterproof - an excellent choice if you suffer from sensitive peepers! The fact that it rolls all these advantages into one product also makes it a great space-saver, so it’s ideal if you’re going travelling or just want to clean out your make up bag. It can also save you money, as you’ll just need the one mascara to achieve all the results! I like to wear two coats of mascara for extra length, volume, and drama. Some products flake and clump when you apply multiple coats, but I had no issues with this one! I found it to be quick-drying, clump and flake-free, easy to build up, smudge-proof, long-lasting, and the jet black colour is great beautifully defining the eyes.


I've added some photos below to show off the results that I achieved after applying two coats of PHB All-In-One Natural Mascara in Black.
