Hello hello

Hello lovely friends,

I have missed this little corner of the internet!

It has been a ridiculously long time since I last posted, and for that I am raging with myself. I had written a big post about where I have been, what’s been happening but you know what? They’re just lame excuses really. Work, university, exams, driving tests… they’ve shaped the last few months, but that’s not what I want to focus on.

I have so many blog post ideas, and I really hope I can kick my butt back into action over the summer. From my holy grail face products, nutritional reviews to lifestyle posts, I hope to resurrect mirrorthelove

Thank you to all who have stayed subscribed and those who have joined this journey! I appreciate it so very much. I should also add that I cannot use Instagram anymore, so apologies for the barren nature of my feed lately… technology is not my forté!

I look forward to catching up on a lot of your posts and send hugs to you all!

Viridian Ultimate Beauty Organic Nail and Cuticle Oil

 I was recently lucky enough to be sent a gift package from Viridian, an eco-friendly, ethical and natural company aimed at increasing health and well-being from the inside out. When it comes to natural and ethically sourced ingredients, Viridian are at the top of their game, as reflected in their numerous awards and accolades. Having previously purchased products from them, I was over the moon and itching to post about it, but I had to wait to give things a good try first!

I’ve mentioned before that I am a nail-polish magpie – if I see it, I’ll buy it and while it’s fun and makes me feel more “put together”, there’s no denying the impact that constant chemicals can have on your nails. Over the years, mine have become very fragile and peel extremely easily. Needless to say, I was delighted to see this nail and cuticle oil in the parcel and began using it immediately (about a month ago now), though I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t even realise nails would absorb anything to be honest!

 As you can see, this product is as organic and chemical-free as you could ever get and I love that. It has a gorgeous citrus scent that smells so fresh and clean. A little goes a very long way and I don’t even have to squeeze the pipette dropper; I just touch it onto my nail and it’s more than enough. It’s only £12.95, so it’s not a massive splurge but nevertheless, it’s great to know it’ll last a long time. They recommend applying twice a day so I do it once during the day and then right before I fall asleep. It absorbs within 5-10 minutes, so I’d recommend doing it after washing your hands, when you won’t be eating immediately and when you’re ready to settle down for the night!

My conclusion? This stuff is gold! Frankly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from it – as I said, I didn’t even realise my nails would absorb anything so I was a tad skeptical but this product had far exceeded any expectations I could have had. My nails feel stronger than ever and they haven’t been peeling whatsoever. I haven’t painted them as frequently so that I could really see if the oil had any significant impact, and I can say without doubt it has. I will most certainly be repurchasing this and I’ll be getting my mum some for Mother’s Day this month because she’s a nail-woman like me!
