    Beauty Papier Green Tea Blotting Paper Review

    Time for something a little different here on RockPaperSpirit. I love trying new and interesting beauty products, especially those from brands who have an altruistic approach to beauty and today I’m reviewing Beauty Papier’s Green Tea Blotting Paper. The idea is that when you get excess oil on your skin, you can blot it away with these handy little sheets of blotting paper before re-powdering so that the powder doesn’t clump on your skin, which looks unsightly and embarrassing. The sheets are made from wooden hemp and natural pulp with green tea leaf extract which is so nourishing for the skin. This product doesn’t contain any parabens, mineral oil, sodium…

    Review: LaRitzy Lip Pencil

    I’ve always associated lip pencils with the 1980s and Caroline (aka Caggy) from Big Brother series 1. I’ve never been a huge fan of them. However, when I received a sample of one recently as part of a subscription box, I decided to give it a go. LaRitzy Cosmetics weren’t a brand I was familiar with, so I’m not only discovering lip liner for the first time, I’m also trying a new brand. LaRitzy Cosmetics are a Montreal based brand who are passionate about creating and selling products which are high-quality, vegan and cruelty free. So that’s already three awesome things about them. The lip liner I tried was also…
