I’d been uhmming and ahhing about going to the LNLO show for a few weeks as I just got back from Amsterdam on Thursday & its the Field Trip Tour Green Blogger Meet on Saturday so I knew money would be tight. However, my three sisters & I all jumped in the car and drove down to London on Sunday morning and my sister Mia & I visited the show whilst my other two sisters did some shopping. Tickets were free and we drove in Ella’s car so the bakery paid for petrol….bargain! 😉
Potion Shop Cleanser – I thought their packaging looked so cool which is what drew me to this brand at first (I’m such a packaging sucker!) and I tried out a couple of their products on my hand & they seemed really nice. As it was the last day of the show they had a great offer that I couldn’t resist. Their cleanser was reduced to just £5.00 from £28.00! Its an oil based cleanser and it just sounded and smelt so lovely so I picked up one of those. Then I found out that this company don’t list all their ingredients on their website so I frantically checked the ingredients label and luckily for me the ingredients are okay in the cleanser (I think, can someone double check for me please?! Probably not so keen on the glycerine being so high up but everything else seems ok) but others are not so good so do ask for ingredients lists before if you’re planning on buying from them.
Scott Farms Sweet Potato Crisps – These tasted SO good. They’re just sweet potatoes, fried (I think?) in sunflower oil and then they add a little bit of sea salt & they are just so scrummy!
Lyonsleaf Samples – I visited the Lyonsleaf stand as I’d seen their balms reviewed on so many blogs and I’ve been wanting to try them out for a while. They won Silver for their Beauty Balm in the Free From Skincare Awards on Friday which beat the Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm which is amazing! Especially as WRBB costs £37.00 and Lyonsleaf costs £12.95…I picked up a pack of their samples so I’m looking forward to trying those out!
Odylique (by Essential Care) Samples – I visited the Odylique stand as I have been trying out their Tea Tree & Herb Shampoo for a while now and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t for me. So I explained this to the girls & they offered me some advice (massage it into the scalp more & leave it on for longer – will be trying this from now on, thanks girlies!) and they also gave me a couple of samples to try – their Coconut Candy Scrub which just sounds divine and their Gentle Herb Shampoo as I know that Sarah raves about it!! I’ll keep you all updated how I get on with them!
Green People Sun Lotion Sample – I visited the Green People stand & they kindly gave us a sample of their sun cream which apparently has a tan accelerator in it. I only just got back from my holiday but I’m sure we’ll (hopefully!) be having more warm weather this summer so I’m looking forward to trying this out. I also very coincidentally got an e-mail from the lovely peeps at Green People & I’ll be trying out a couple of their products soon so keep an eye out for a review of those!
Greenscents Cleaning Products – I didn’t get a sample or anything from this brand but I thought I would just give them a mention as I like helping small family businesses! They are the only natural cleaning product brand to be certified as Organic by the Soil Association! I thought that was just brilliant and their products smell great! They have citrus, mint & lavender and quite a variety of products so I’d love if you check them out!
