A Chai Latte for your Bath? Yes, it exists! Bathtub Tea, Living Naturally - Review

If I had to write a top 10 list of things that make me happy, baths and chai lattes would be up there. Not so long ago I discovered that you can combine the two! That's right! Living Naturally have created a range of teas for your bath and I've been trying them out.

White Chocolate Bath Truffles, JOIK - Review

Let me start by telling you a little secret... I am not a chocolate fan. *Gasp* Oh the shock! Oh the horror! Take a deep breath and be assured that whilst I don't really eat it, I do ADORE the smell. When I came across these delicious looking White Chocolate Bath Truffles by JOIK on a peruse of the Love Lula website, I just had to try them.
Cruelty-free, vegan, calorie, sugar and fat free plus 100% relaxing = Keep the chocolate bars and give me chocolate baths!

The Lush Cosmetics Tag

I saw this tag a while back on one of my favourite blogs The July Journal. Readers of my blog will know I just had to take part. Writing out this tag made me realise how old I am so prepare yourself for a retro Lush product throwback down memory lane.

Fomo Jelly Face Mask, Lush - Review

I am a sucker for new Lush products so was very keen to try their new jelly face masks. In store it was difficult to smell each of the 5 options individually (you know how strong Lush stores smell!) In the end I decided to choose based on ingredients, ending up with vegan friendly Fomo as I know rose can reduce redness and I love the smell of neroli.

Begu Tea, Tea for your Mind - Review

Begu Tea*
Begu Tea*
Unless you live under a rock, I'd say it's pretty obvious that I love tea. A healthy lifestyle is important to me so I was quite intrigued to try some of the Begu tea range. Begu aim to promote a healthy lifestyle and offer meal plans and online health related advice. Before you think "Oh no, not *another* detox tea" stop right there! I am personally trying to put ON weight, not lose it. I've found that each of the Begu teas offer something different and definitely do not suggest any quick-fix miracles. They are made with high quality ingredients, each promoting different health aspects and most importantly, taste delicious.

Things I've Loved in July

I've decided my blog needs a more "personal" edge. I have done a few tags where you can find out more about the face behind Tea in the Tub so feel free to tag me in more. Recently I have really enjoyed reading other bloggers various versions of their monthly favourites and thought this would be a fun thing to start and might give you a small snippet into my life somehow. So here are a few things I have loved this month:

What I Bought at Bristol VegFest 2017

One of my favourite events of the summer is Bristol VegFest. It is one of the best vegan festivals in the UK featuring food, beauty and lifestyle products, cooking classes, lectures, live entertainment and music followed by a music festival in the evening. It is a fun weekend for vegans, meat eaters and everyone in between. This year was no exception.

Think Pink Bath Ballistic, Lush - Review

On a recent trip to Lush, I noticed a "new" bath bomb only to discover it wasn't new at all, just updated. I have tried Think Pink in the past and thought nothing of it but smelling this new formula I put it in my basket instantly. But don't be fooled, this bright pink beauty holds more than meets the eye...Think Pink, Lush

My Current Cruelty-Free Hair Care Routine

My hair care routine is pretty simple. I have thin, fine, medium-long length red hair so finding products that don't make it flat or frizzy can be annoying. Luckily it is naturally straight and relatively "normal". I wash my hair about twice per week and these are the cruelty-free products I am currently using and loving on my hair:

Amla Hair Remedy Oil, Alchemy - Review

One of the small frustrations in my life (and many other ladies and gentlemen) is my infuriatingly fine hair. This year I have been suffering with more hair loss than unusual and I'm not sure if this is just naturally how my hair is or whether it is due to my thyroid disease. Either way, it's a pain. For the past few weeks I have added Amla Hair Remedy hair oil by Alchemy to my hair care routine. Alchemy state that it can stimulate hair growth and my head needs all the help it can get.

Peony, Bay & Brahmi Shower & Bath Gel, AA Skincare - Review

One of my favourite ways to relax after a long day is by taking a long bath or a hot shower and pampering myself lots of lovely cruelty-free products. I like having an array of aromas to suit my mood. You may remember I reviewed one of AA Skincare's face creams back in November (link here) and loved it so I am thrilled to be trying out their vegan friendly Peony, Bay & Brahmi Shower & Bath Gel

H2woaaahh! Supercharged Water with Ion8 - Review

With the new year comes a fresh start towards our health and fitness goals. One goal I believe is achievable and will benefit everyone is to drink more water. Water is the best beauty product for your skin and body. Other than needing it to live (well duh!) it also reduces joint pain, rids toxins, oxygenates blood and helps us concentrate. With my anatomy and physiology exam next week, I need all the help concentrating I can get.
Since the summer, I have been drinking from my 550ml Ultimate Ion8 bottle which is not any old bottle, but a supercharging bottle.
