Nourish London’s Radiance Firming Facial Oil
Thanks to Nourish, we got to try out the Firming Facial Oil which smells fantastic, is easily soaked into the skin, and doesn’t feel greasy. We saw that it features Macadamia Oil and is rich in Omega 9 to support cell regeneration and reduce local inflammation in the skin. Vitamin C-rich Rosehip Oil helps build strong collagen. Borage and Pumpkin Seed Oil with their high levels of gamma linoleic acid help the skin reach optimum health and reduce sensitivities. The active ingredient is the ocean’s gift of healthy skin; an Algae extract with superior antioxidant activity to improve levels of collagen and Hyaluronic Acid in the skin to give a smoother firmer appearance.

Freya and Bailey
Founder and skin care crusader Abbie Oguntade introduced us to Freya and Bailey products recently. The range is made up of a whopping 27 different vegan-friendly products that aims to encourage us to adopt a healthy skincare routine, getting us ‘battle ready’ and helping to protect our skin against toxins and pollution’s we unknowingly face every single day.
“I tried the Glo Up Dream Face Cleanser which smoothes & restores skin with essential fatty acids, The Restore Endurance Face Toner and the Quench Clarifying Face Moisturiser. The products feel luxurious to use, smell delicious and made my skin feel so soft. I love the website too as it has a tailored skincare regime page – “Skincare is personal. No two women are the same. We’re all unique and so are our skincare needs”.”
This is in our top ever favourites of skincare here at VV TV – our skin feels amazing. Freyaandbailey.com

Tasked with trying the new Sacla Vegan range, our reviewer created an amazing Vegan ‘Lasagne’ with the Sacla Vegan Bolognese Sauce and the Sacla Vegan White Sauce.
Browning a mixture of tasty vegetables, she added the Bolognese Sauce, then built up the lasagne layers using char-grilled aubergine instead of pasta. The result went down a treat with all the family, apparently – there weren’t any leftovers for us a VV HO to try! Sacla.co.uk
Finally, our lovely reviewer took the Earlybirds ‘snack in a bottle’ into work to try. He said they were an absolute godsend on a busy shift.
Earlybirds goal is to provide healthy and convenient solutions to breakfast and snacking while minimising their environmental impact thanks to their innovative sugarcane bottle.
The oat-based drink uses only the freshest ingredients and is currently in two delicious flavours: Berry Bircher and Mango & Oats (£2.25/bottle). Earlybirds.co
Our reviewer commented; “The texture is like a thick smoothie, and you can feel the oats in the mix so you actually feel like you’ve had a snack, instead of just a drink. Both flavours are very tasty, it’s certainly a great product to have in the fridge for those manic days where you can only stop for a moment!”
With thanks to the lovely guys who send us super vegan products to test for you – so you know what is worth picking up too!
