Support the S.O.P.H.I.E. Lancaster Foundation



On 11th August 2007, 20 year-old Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were kicked, stamped on and left unconscious – for nothing more than looking different. Sophie later died from her injuries.

The S.O.P.H.I.E. Lancaster Foundation was set up by Sylvia Lancaster, a youth worker and Sophie's mother, in her memory, and is dedicated to educating young people in our society about acceptance and tolerance towards others through interactive youth workshops.
As a brand that promotes the right to experiment and self-express through the way you look, Illamasqua have continually supported the Foundation's work and remains committed to changing attitudes towards subcultures.
To mark the 4th anniversary of Sophie's death, we have created a new film in association with The S.O.P.H.I.E. Lancaster Foundation to further raise awareness and celebrate their work.
Stand up for Sophie – act now and buy an Illamasqua Sophie pencil,wristband or make a donation. £3 from the Sophie Pencil purchased and all proceeds from the wristband sales go directly to the Foundation and help them spread their message of tolernace and acceptance throughout our society.

Yellowstone Bees

Hello Beauty Lovers, it has been some time since I have written a review- or a simple update for that matter. I miss you all and hope everything is going well. Some time ago I received products from a natural skin care company, Yellowstone Bees. I am 29 weeks pregnant and always on the lookout for more natural/organic skin and body care products that are safe to use. Yellowstone Bees did not disappoint!

About Yellowstone Bees

Natural Since the Beginning

Yellowstone Bees is located in Bozeman, Montana, a historic western town north of Yellowstone National Park. Montana is legendary for its natural beauty – spectacular landscapes, world-class rivers, inspiring mountain views, and big open skies. The beauty of nature is reflected in the body care products we create for our customers, who seek products that nourish skin and contain all natural ingredients.
We are dedicated to providing healthy natural skin care solutions. At Yellowstone Bees we use the essence of ingredients from plants and herbs such as chamomile, lavender, and sunflowers as well as beeswax to create moisturizing products that restore, replenish, and reenergize the skin and body. We create natural body care products using our own time-tested special recipes with premium natural ingredients and scents. We keep our products pure by ensuring they are free of ingredients that are not good for our customers such as parabens (artificial preservatives), synthetic dyes, sulfates or mineral oils. Our products put your body and your skin first!
Yellowstone Bees has been developing healthy, natural and luxurious body care products since the company was founded in 1997. Our first products were inspired by a love and respect for nature's cures and a desire to support healthier lifestyles among friends and family by making natural body care products for their every day use. We’ve been natural since the beginning. Our mission and commitment to you is to continue creating products that will help you nurture and protect your own beautiful skin and natural beauty.

Lavender Hand & Body Cream
buy it here
2 oz. $6.50 or 4 oz. $9.90

Description:

Our Lavender Natural Hand & Body Cream adds the moisturizers in extra virgin olive oil and vitamin-rich beeswax with lavender natural essential oil for a smooth creamy natural skin care treatment. Lavender has been a calming, restful and serene influence for centuries. Often referred to as a “medicine chest in a bottle”, Lavender is used all over the world to balance and soothe nerves and promote natural skin regeneration.
Aromatic Scent: Lavender is a sweet floral-herbal fragrance. Once called “Blue Magic”, Lavender has a relaxing aroma that helps you unwind, soothes nerves, and promotes restful sleep.
My Take:
Although this hand and body lotion is rich and creamy, it absorbs rather quickly... it does NOT leave behind any oily residue or slip. A great year round body and hand lotion! The scent is a TRUE LAVENDER. So soothing, not over-powering and it's as if it's been made with freshly ground lavender! I love this product, definitely recommend trying it out!

You can lick but you can’t hide from cracked, dry or chapped lips. You can feel them and everyone else can see them. We bring nature’s most soothing secrets to your lips to keep them comfortable, healthy and soft.
Exposure to the sun, wind, cold and heat can really take a toll on your lips. Lucky for you, Yellowstone Bees Natural Lip Balm is all you need to protect your lips from the elements. Just smooth on a layer of our beeswax-based natural chapstick and let the healing begin!

Raspberry Lip Balm
Our natural lip balm is a smooth blend of olive fruit oil,beeswax, and vitamin E that drenches your lips in softness. Apply our Raspberry Lip Balm for a sweet taste of summer all year long.


Tea Tree Lip Balm
Put the healing powers of tea tree pure natural essential oil to work for your wind or sunburned lips. Our Tea Tree Natural Lip Balm has a spicy and warm flavor that moisturizes and repairs.

My Take
I'd say these are comparable to Burts Bees lip balms! Super hydrating, smells yummy and doesn't have that funky taste. If you like sweet, try the Raspberry! Buying one for that special man in your life? Give him the Tea Tree Lip Balm- my Dad says it's "very moist and soothing!"
