With Rossana Sotos, founder of I Am Natural Store

A few months ago, Rossana Sotos, the force behind I Am Natural Store (AKA one of my favourite Aussie online green beauty stores) mentioned to me about her upcoming green beauty masterclass in Sydney, but I didn’t think I’d be able to make it to the event. I live in Melbourne, and the last time I was in Sydney was about 9 years ago! I told her I’d consider it, but forgot all about it until a few weeks ago when Rossana sent me another private message on Facebook with an invite. Although I’d never met her in person, Rossana’s loveliness is infectious, and without thinking too much about the logistics, I just said yes! And I’m glad I did. The masterclass was an amazing opportunity to catch up with and learn from some of the most passionate people working in the Australian green beauty industry.  View Post

Samples
I have a long history of not testing the samples that come with my skincare orders. Usually, I put them away in boxes and forget all about them. Recently, when I received a whole bunch of samples from very generous online retailers (I Am Natural Store and Be Naturally You, extra-special shout outs to you!), I decided to make an effort to try them straightaway. Here are my mini reviews based on my first impressions:

Rahua

Shampoo: Brilliant shampoo, deserves all the praise it gets. It lathers a lot better than most natural shampoos. Has a unique (but pleasant) smell, which may take some getting used to.

Conditioner: I’ll definitely be buying a full bottle of this. It’s luscious, creamy, and coats hair very well for a natural conditioner. Leaves hair soft and healthy, without weighing it down. Love at first use! View Post
