Welcome back and welcome if you are new here xoxo
How are all of you, I hope you are well? I myself am still shaken to the core – I witnessed a car crash unfolding right before my very own eyes yesterday & still can’t shake it the day after.
I am due loads of reviews by the end of this month, but please allow me to take the easy route with empties post right now.
As I mentioned in (rather colossal) last empties post here, I will be splitting my empties into three categories right now with pretty much self explanatory titles, so I won’t have to go into too much details of why I am repurchasing or not repurchasing some product or the other.
Let’s get into it, shall we?
fabulous green beauty products I will repurchase
Bella Aura Daily Repair Moisturiser & Bella Aura Instant Lifting Eye Contour
My love for them is infinite, the best green beauty has to offer, full stop. See full review here. I never want to be without them!
*Update on why I no longer stand by this brand, even though I still think their products are fantastic here, scroll down to the very end.
Elsa’s Organic Skinfoods x2
I find they work great and keep me stink free, when sooooo many other natural deodorants failed at that. Baking soda free too! See this post to know my thoughts – they are a fave for a reason!
DrHauschka Rose Day Cream x2
I don’t know what’s with me and running out of things in twos, but yeah, that happened. Another fave for a good reason – my dry and dermatitis prone skin just loooves it! See full review here – I swore by this before I discovered Bella Aura, even though I found it a bit too greasy for summers. A must in winters though, that’s why I had two – I like stocking up 🙂
Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Organic Facial Moisturiser SPF30 – 120ml
A staple for the last four years or so. See here to learn why it is my favourite. As you can see, already repurchased.
Terra Nova Cordyceps
Fabulous stuff for boosting immune system, I now swear by it!
KIKI Health Body Biotics For Children 650mg Chewable Tablets
A must for my 6yr old princess. Took care of her tummy and toilet troubles (sorry for the TMI) and I don’t want to switch to any other brand. They taste like sweets, so kids will definitely love them.
Neals Yard Remedies Vitamin C
Repurchasing come next fall. I also really love their elderberry syrup & thyme and honey syrup, brilliant for persistent coughs.
Solgar vitamin D
One of my weapons against dermatitis, I take 2500iu daily. Your ideal level might be different, check with your doctor first. But one tip though – research optimal vitamins and mineral levels versus RDA, your life will be changed forever. And you can thank me later 🙂
NYR Thyme & Honey Syrup
Just like I said, amazing for coughs. I am stocking up every winter.
One more thing I can’t live without! I use it as a medicine and also for masking, see my 12 DIY manuka masks with super simple ingredients you already have in your kitchen here.
Great natural items I won’t get for now due to the size of my stash
Fat & The Moon All Cream
Very natural and minimalistic, I simply don’t need so many creams I have right now. Came from Live In The Light, see this review of the online shop if you want?
Meadows Lip Balm
Great natural Irish brand I’d reviewed here. Not repurchasing for now, have eight or so lip balms and one more came in the Love Lula box 🙂
Inner Senses Frankincense Essential Oil
A big fan and now ambassador of the brand. Adore their body oils, esp Awakening (review here) & Quiet Earth mask (review here)
By the way, if you are like me and find yourself with lots of products nearing their expiration date, see my blogger friend Bryanna from The Eco Logical post where she list all sorts of creative ways of using up your products.
Passed to my friend due to having too much of the exfoliating products. Might get again once I will reduce my stash, who knows?
Phb New Gentle Moisturiser
As you can see, I finished the whole lot, but as a hand cream, it wasn’t really suitable for my face.
Green Beauty Items I a not repurchasing ‘cos they weren’t suitable for my needs/ didn’t work for me
Madara Plant Stem Cell Age Defying Sunscreen SPF30
Got this in the hopes that it will be my W3LL People Bio Tint replacement, which I adore but am running out of – fast! Sadly this didn’t work out for me for a few reasons, was too orange and dark (and I chose light shade!), way too scented & it broke me out. Tried ten times and had to give up. My friend who got this loves it to bits however.
Benecos Lip Pencil
The dark raspberry colour didn’t suit me, nothing wrong with the formula.
Leahlani Meli Glow
Good product, but it irritated my dermatitis patch, so that’s the reason I am not repurchasing.
Lots of Love,
Enjoy my content? A tip into my PayPal Tip Jar - will get You my eternal gratitude and more awesome green beauty reviews Your way! I weed out all the greenwashing products so You won't have to.

What a great collection of empties! I definitely need some of these immune boosting supplements come autumn. Had too many illnesses last year!
Thanks for reading Helen – and yes, I hear you! My family is the same, especially the youngest used to catch every single flu and cold going around. These supplements worked like magic for us, all bookmarked for stocking up come next Fall.
So interesting about the Madara how it broke you out but your friend loves it!
Yeah, I was so happy to pass it to her & even more happy to hear she loves it! Thanks for reading Andrea xo
