Bessant & Drury's Chocolate Dairy Free Frozen Dessert

I got really excited when I spotted a new dairy-free ice cream in my local Tesco: Bessant & Drury's Chocolate Dairy Free Frozen Dessert. There was no price label on display but I picked it up anyway. At the till I was shocked when it turned out to be £4.69, however, the product is marketed as a fine ice cream, and I guess it is of a similar price to the luxury dairy ice creams.

This ice cream is also free from soya and GMO ingredients, contains no artificial additives, colours or preservatives, and is low in cholesterol. It has a very rich cocoa taste, with a lovely subtle hint of coconut (the main ingredient is coconut milk). The texture is extremely similar to dairy ice cream; it even melts quickly too! I encouraged some of my non-vegan family members to try it and they loved it - they said that you couldn't tell that it wasn't dairy ice cream!

I thought this ice cream was delicious, and I will definitely be buying it again; I'd like to try the other flavours too if I can get hold of them. I feel that it is worth the price, as it is more of a luxury ice cream than an everyday one, plus I won't be tempted to buy it too often!

Sorry, Jack insisted on being in my picture again!

Has anyone else tried this ice cream, if so, what did you think?

Jason Family Natural Sunscreen Review

What a hit and miss summer we are having! A few weeks a go when we had a hot and sunny spell I was offered the chance to try a suncream from Jason. When it arrived the weather changed again! But there were a few sunny days at the weekend so I grabbed my new suncream and headed outside.

The Family Natural Sunscreen is a broad spectrum suncream and has an SPF of 45. My skin is fair with freckles, and as I burn easily I always go for a high sun protection factor. The product is vegan and BUAV approved, and is also free from parabens and phthalates.

I love the smell of this suncream, it is really tropical which I think is a great aroma to have in a suncare product! I hate suncreams that are really greasy on your skin, but this one is not greasy at all. It is easily absorbed which is definitely one of my top features to have in a suncream.

I did not burn whilst wearing this suncream, although I did ensure that I didn't stay out in the sun too long as even with protection your skin can still burn if the sun is very strong, especially if you have been swimming, sweating or have rubbed it away.

Here's hoping I get to use my suncream a few more times before the summer's out!
