Bounce V-Life Energy Balls
Bounce is passionate about making nutritious, balanced and convenient snacks available to everyone. Bounce V Life, a new vegan Protein Energy Ball range, has five delicious new flavours to try. A chewy mix of vegan proteins, fats and carbs, they taste perfect pre or post-workout.

We’ve got our eyes on the beetroot cashew flavour, but we’re big fans of the almond and kale combination too – it’s like melt-in-the-mouth marzipan.. so tasty!

Burt’s Bees Lipstick
We are so in love with all 18 shades of this 100% natural moisturising lipstick from Burt’s Bees. It lasts for hours without drying out or staining lips, and is enriched with beautiful ingredients like beeswax, moringa and raspberry seed oils to help soften and condition lips all day long. Just as nourishing as the Burt’s bees lip balm range, we love how hydrated they leave our lips. The deep plum and vibrant crimson shades make for a great statement pout whilst the soft blush and subtle nudes work well for work.
