Fit Pit Natural Deodorant

Do you ever feel like a twonk when you rave about your all time favourite product only to find something you love more the very next week??

Yes??? No?.? Well I don’t feel that bad about finding this little gem of a deodorant from @thegreenwomanuk

Now I think you all know I’m always hunting down a good, effective but natural deodorant and I did think I’d found ‘the one’ but then I received this little beauty.

It came in a kit with razors from @ffshaving and as much as the razors are good it was this that blew me away. It is the most effective one I’ve tried so far. It’s called Fit Pit Natural Deodorant made by @thegreenwoman for @ffshaving as well as supply to 80 other stockists.

I chose Rosemary and Bergamot but it comes in various other different ‘flavours’ as I call it haha. Including Tea Tree and Orange, Peppermint, Frankincense and Jasmine as well as an unscented version and one for guys too, although the Cypress scent in this makes me want this one.

All the range is 100% organic ingredients, aluminium and paraben free, plastic free, cruelty free and vegan.

But let me tell you the best part, this stuff blummin works.

It contains Bicarbonate of Soda which alters the pH of the skin which prevents the smell. I haven’t tested this on a normal days work as obviously I’m not at work right now but I’ve used it on a full day of painting and decorating, through exercising and all day on those hot few days we’ve been having and trust me, I had no underarm whiff whatsoever.

It’s a light mousse textured cream and have noticed no transfer onto clothes at all.

All I can say is WOW I’m impressed. And you all know by now it takes a lot to impress me.

Its £10 for a 100ml glass pot which is a much better price than the one I liked before so much better value.

I know there’s conflicting thoughts on natural deodorant but I have a strong family history of breast cancer so I want as little aluminium and chemicals under my pits and in that area so I’d personally prefer to go down this route, but you do you boo.

Also I’m happy to support a small family run UK businesses like this, especially at a time like this.

All about BeautyPie

Hi there Blog viewers…..long time no read. I’d love to say i’m back with a bang but it’s more likely to be a gentle pop and fizz.
Many apologies for going missing but due to other commitments I took a break from blogging. Then following a big event in my life, yes I turned 50 years old I then decided to change Instagram names, which then prompted a change of blog name. And as I’m a complete tech nugget this is where I hit the problems. I had to seek out professional help to move my existing blog content to the new blog but anyway….here I am now. So here is my new blog under the title Fiona’s 50 Life….give me a follow if you like, thank you.

My first post on the new blog is all about Beauty Pie and all about this new skincare buying experience.
It is sort of a subscription service with the ability to buy products at a greatly discounted price.

Marks & Spencer Beauty Hall

If like me you normally just use good old Marks & Spencer to nip to the food hall for a quick lunchtime sandwich or you’re at an age where M&S fashion doesn’t quite tickle your pickle then you may be missing out !!
Most larger stores now boast a large beauty hall packed with all your favourite beauty and skin care brands and I don’t want you to miss them.
My nearest branch is at the Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield and I find myself going there more and more often as the range is expanding, meaning I don’t have to order online and wait in for deliveries. When you enter the beauty hall it’s more like going into a branch of trendy Space NK rather than M&S.

Battle of the SPF’s Bioderma V’s Garnier

As we all know it is one of, if not the most important thing in skincare to wear SPF daily. This is something relatively new to me, especially living here in the UK where we see zero hours of sunlight most days!! So when I started to up my skincare game I also wanted to up my SPF wear…..and this is where I came across a problem……I didn’t really like any of them, or more the feel of them. So this is where my quest to find a great SPF formulation started.

Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Shampoo

Being a hairdresser I have access to all the top brand salon shampoo’s that I can get from the beauty suppliers which is why I would never go to brand like Kiehl’s for a shampoo…..but perhaps I’ve been a little too hasty??

I received this bottle of the Nourishing Olive Fruit Oil shampoo when I attended a bloggers event at Kiehl’s Meadowhall and I thought although I would use it I wouldn’t love it….especially as I was happy with my current brand.

Hylamide serums that I wouldn’t be without.

Lets’ talk about serums. In my mind these are right up there in the important steps of skincare……and my current preference is of the hydrating type. I definitely do not drink enough water and it shows in my skin’s texture!!

I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of different sera (the correct word for the plural of serum) that are available but a brand I keep coming back to for many reason’s is HYLAMIDE.
