Blogging For My Pure

Like a number of other bloggers I was recently accepted to do some reviews and blogging for My Pure. I thought I'd just do you a quick post explaining more about what I'm going to be doing and what you can expect to see on my blog - just for transparency and to make sure I am being 100% honest with you I guess :)
For those of you haven't heard of them My Pure is a UK based site that specialises in hard to find natural skin, hair, and body care products. I was thrilled to be accepted on to their bloggers panel - I've recently started looking at the ingredients in my products and to say I've been concerned at some of them is an understatement so I am looking forward to trying some new and interesting natural brands. As part of their blogger panel I will be reviewing around three products a month for you - as per usual despite the fact that I am been sent items I can promise I will give you an honest opinion. be it good or bad which is exactly what My Pure have asked for :)
As I said earlier a number of bloggers are going to be doing the same thing - I am lead to believe that the first few parcels we all get will contain the same items but after that we will be getting products tailored to our own skin and hair types. I know a few bloggers have had some concerns about the fact that in the early stages we will all be receiving the same products and there is therefore a risk of overkill or blogger boredom. Whilst I can understand this view (I understand how annoying it is to get 20 different posts in your feed about the same product) Hopefully this won't be an issue I can imagine our reviews will all be slightly different depending on our own experiences with the products and our different ages, hair and skin types,so fingers crossed you won't be reading the same thing too many times, and as with all things on my blog if you don't want to read or your not interested in a post that's fine by me, move on and hopefully you'll enjoy the next post better.
Anyways I am thrilled to be taking part and I received my first parcel on Saturday morning and I have to say it made a lovely surprise on a day of surprises!
Wrapped in lovely tissue paper and recyclable cereal noodles (aren't these so much better than polystyrene) I received two skin care products - the A'kin Pure Rose Hydrating Facial Mist, and the Kosmea Eighth Wonder Revitalising Facial Serum and a haircare product - Lovea's Moroccan Argan Brilliance Shine Shampoo. I'll obviously give you more details on the products when I come to do my reviews but just from reading the ingredients labels and a bit of a blurb on the packaging this is exactly the sort of thing I've been looking to try - paraben, and sulphate, etc. free (look up parabens sometime if your curious). I'll hopefully be integrating these reviews in to my regular postings over the next next few weeks (we have been set a deadline of 7th June to posts our reviews) so hopefully you won't get millions of reviews from different bloggers coming up in your feed at once :) Anyways don't forget to keep an eye out for the posts if natural products are your bag hopefully it will be worth a read xx


  1. I got them too, the parcel made my day. I'm loving one of the products already :)

  2. Ooooh I have the A'kin rose spray thingy, got it from qvc, its a lovely product. I use it for all sorts, setting make up, making makeup look more dewy, mixing with make up, wetting eyeshadows on back of hand hehe xx
