PHB All In One Natural Mascara Review

natural mascara

PHB All In One Natural Mascara (15.95) is made with natural ingredients hence the word ‘natural’ in the tittle. It does not refer to the effect it gives lashes, which I’m glad about as I need all of the help I can get in that department.

I have very long but very sparse eyelashes so I need a mascara which will easily build volume but also keep lashes separate, rather than spiky. That is exactly what this mascara does. It also glides on really easily without any clumps, no matter how many layers you add and gives lashes a slight glossy look. There is always a big blob of mascara on the end of the wand so I use it to add depth to the roots of my lashes. I haven’t even used eyelash curlers here – impressive result!

As much as I love this mascara, it’s not very water proof so no going out in torrential rain or swimming.

The formula is increadibly gentle as I found out when I rubbed my eyes vigorously when really tired and managed to spread it all over my face and eyeballs. It didn’t irritate at all and I was oblivious until someone gleefully pointed out that I looked like Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max.

I’ve worn it a lot since and every time I’ve been too tired to take my makeup off before bed, I’ve woken up with lovely soft lashes that weren’t dry or broken. So I’d say this mascara actually cares for lashes too.

Rating 5/5

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast is a very quick Mascara to use as it glides on without clumping. However, it does not make lashes look thick no matter how I use it.

I do love this mascara for quick every day use or when I’m in a hurry as it’s pretty fool proof to use and it does make my lashes look super long and separated. With just one coat, eyelashes look as if they naturally appear this way and you aren’t even wearing mascara. You can use two layers for more depth without clumping but as I said, it doesn’t really alter the thickness.

I really like the retro chrome effect packaging but wish that the brush was a little narrower at the tip for those smaller lashes.

This Works, Clean Skin 5-in-1 Water

img_4833

Clean Skin 5-in-1 Water £21 is basically a cleansing ritual in a bottle. It’s a wonderful makeup remover, cleanser, toner and is one of the most refreshing and moisturising cleansers I’ve used.

This is a result of rosewater, olive and almond oils and wild mint. Afterward I apply a vitamin C serum for day or retinol moisturiser for night and my combination skin stays balanced for around twelve hours.

It might seem expensive but 200ml is going to last ages as the spray novel easily lets you control how much you use. It’s also narrowed my skincare routine down to only two products so it’s now cheaper and quicker!

This Works uses 100% natural fragrances and 100% pure essential oils.
