Jealous Sweets || Grizzly Bears Review.

Jealous Sweets Grizzly Bears.

I have been vegetarian for about a decade now and eat about 90% vegan diet, as well as having been completely vegan for several significant periods. However, something I have never been great with is checking whether the sweets I am eating are gelatine free/vegan. It's always been the one thing that has slipped through the net of my otherwise string vegetarianism. This year, though, I have made a real effort to actually check and be more conscious about it. This, has been made significantly easier by the introduction of Jealous Sweets into my life.

I picked them up on day in Asda, along with a few other vegan brand sweets and was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved them. I love gummy bears but most of them aren't veggie and a lot of veggie/vegan ones I have tried in the past I haven't been keen on the texture and the flavour has always been very lacking. So when I picked them up I didn't have particularly high hopes. BUT I WAS WRONG!!!

The flavour of the Grizzly Bears is spot on. Really fruity, well balanced flavour and the texture is also really nice, still gummy and super satisfying. I really like the four choices of flavour, Lemon, Orange, Apple and Strawberry, they mix really well if you wanna just shovel a load down but all individually have a lot of flavour. They are some of my favourite sweets I have ever tried and it is really nice to have a basic sweet like gummy bears easily available. | think the packaging is really cute but still slick and they are also at a really good price point. Bonus points for being available in supermarkets too! I also recently bought a case of them online (because quarantine right now, don't judge) and they actually lasted me a decent amount of time, without feeling like I was in anyway rationing them.

Overall would highly recommend if you are veggie/vegan or just trying to be more conscious about your food choices!! Jealous Sweets also have a good few other varieties that I can't wait to try soon!

Have you tried any Jealous Sweets yet?

Dr Jart | Dermaclear Trans-foam Clay

Dr Jart || Dermaclear Trans-foam Clay. 

So, I have been using the Dr Jart Dermaclear Transfoam Clay for a couple of months now and in a bid to sort out my hormonal cystic acne that has plagued me for years. Happy to report I have seen some decent results!

My skin is definitely oily, not extremely so, but by the end of the day noticeably so. I always struggle with balancing it. Whilst I love clay masks in general, especially the Aztec Healing Clay mask, I can't really use them consistently as my skin is also a little sensitive. I also really struggle with finding the right cleansers for my skin too but recently have started using the Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel in the mornings. I really like the light exfoliation as its pretty gentle but definitely needed something more to balance out the oils on my face.

Enter... the Dr Jart Dermaclear Trans-foam Clay. Although its a mask, it foams out into a cleanser and I have been using it nightly as such. It does a really good job at keeping my cystic acne in check but is also gentle enough that it doesn't irritate my skin at all. It comes in three different varieties, Calming White, Refreshing Green and Moisturising Pink. I have tried all three and whilst there is a slight difference between them I generally reach for them all equally and like having the set of three so I can swing between them.

All in all, I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a gentle but effective cleanser/mask if you struggle with acne and oiliness. I have actually tried a number of Dr Jart products over the past few years and been really impressed with them.

Have you tried any Dr Jart products?
