Revisiting My 2018 Love Lula Favourites

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome, if you are new here 💕💕💕

Love Lula Best Natural & Organic Products

How are all of You? I hope everyone is keeping up well during these difficult times? If You need a distraction & are up for some blog reading, let’s revisit my 2018 Love Lula Best products & see how many of them are still standing strong today? See this FB album for 80 more Love Lula related posts here & check out their online shop here.

Idea for this post came when I was backing up my blog posts – being still is the best time on catching up on all the things I knew I needed to do, but never had time to actually do it. You can see my blogger recommendations here, but as life doesn’t stand still, my Holy Grail product change over time too, due to many different reasons – the brands sell out, products change in formulations, stop working for me or are no longer stocked by Love Lula. If You want to know my Love Lula Loves from two years ago, You are in the right place 🙂

A few things to note before we get rolling – I  am on the wrong side of 30s (very wrong) umm, now good side of 40s 🙂 with uber sensitive and dermatitis prone skin. Lucky girl, I know! Hair is fine, but lots of it. I am what you can call a ‘minimalist blogger’ – I like to have one or two of the same things of each category open at a time, so if I have two foundations/ lipsticks/ body oils open, I won’t get any more until I’ll finish some, not even for research or blogging purposes. Even so, I managed to post 400+ posts on my old blog here and 80+ all-things-Love-Lula-related posts, all found in my Facebook album here. I do plan to conquer green beauty world, but one product at a time – it is going to be marathon rather than sprint, and I am so going to enjoy it 🙂 Not all of the products mentioned will have separate reviews, but I’ll link related posts, and you can always ask. Let’s get started?

Make up

Inika Certified Organic Liquid Foundation

Inika Organic BB Cream Foundation

Inika Highlighting Creme

Inika Peachy Keen (loose blush)

Inika Bronzer In Sunkissed

Inika Long Lash Mascara

Inika Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow Duo in Golden Oyster

I swear this post isn’t sponsored by Inika or Love Lula for that matter, they simply have amazing products 🙂 Inika make up review here & you can also see this post on Natural Nars Orgasm Dupes here, where I list more than 20 green beauty dupes for it, including my FAVOURITE BLUSH EVER – which is Inika Peachy Keen! I worked hard on that post. I like it that way.

*Still in love with every product! Really keen to get my paws on their Full Coverage concealer too.

Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pot in Harmony

multiple

Ere Perez Color Pots

I talked about Harmony, the shade I own here and it is safe to say I haven’t put it down ever since.

*this expired on me halfway used, I plan to repurchase it, but haven’t got round to it just yet. Ere Perez has expanded make up range since & I will delve more into it.

 

LIP BALM

Hurraw, especially Moon Balm

*Still one of my Best Products and I don’t see it changing for the longest time ever. The brand has come out with highlight products and I am really intrigued by them. See this post on my Favourite Lip Balms That Actually Last – my requirement for lip balms 🙂

DrHauschka Rose Day Cream review

moisturiser

DrHauschka Rose Day Cream

*Absolute fave prior to discovering Bella Aura. Still my Holy Grail in winters, mind you – see full review here. If you have sensitive skin and aren’t vegan, this is the product for you.

 

Alteya Organics Products Review
Alteya Organics Products Review

Facial oil

Alteya Certified Organic Nourishing Rose Otto Face Serum

WATER/ ALOE BASED SERUM

Alteya Organics Rose Otto Regenerating Concentrate

*Update – as much as I enjoyed the concentrate, I haven’t repurchased it, as I moved onto other things I’d wanted to try. I do plan to come back to it one day though, it is a product I can recommend!

 

OIL BASED SERUM

see facial oils

Living Nature Manuka Gel review

ACNE TREATMENT

Living Nature Manuka Honey Gel

Upgrade from plain tea tree oil I’ve used for so many years – not cheap, but so so good!

*This I haven’t repurchased as the brand is no longer stocked on Love Lula. For acne treatment, I replaced it with DewDab by Living Libations (review).

face wash

Alteya Certified Organic Rose Otto Face Wash

Dr. Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk

Both newer additions, but loves – neither irritates my dermatitis prone skin or dries it out! I can’t say that about many cleansers.

*I have neither at the moment, but repurchasing one or the other next month. Cleansers I have tried post them haven’t been as gentle as these two.

 

BALM CLEANSER

Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm

Love, and long lasting one too – check this review from 2016. I still love it!

*Again, great product I can recommend but don’t have it in my stash right now.

 

MOISTURISER WITH SPF

Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Organic Facial Moisturiser SPF30 – 120ml

Has Holy Grail status ever since I discovered it, about four years ago. No white cast and no clogged skin, do I need to say more?

*Have it. Love it. Do I need to say more?

 

FACE EXFOLIANT 

l’Odaïtès Pépite de la Palmeraie – Gentle Polyphenol Exfoliator

Came via Love Lula beauty box, and I am dreading the day I’ll run out – the gentlest most scrumptious face exfoliant I’ve tried to date. And I’ve tried a ton. Everything else leaves my stash pretty soon, this one doesn’t.

*This brand is no longer stocked in Love Lula, but I have two jars acquired via Love Lula FB Group swap 🙂 Let me know Your fave gentle exfoliants?

 

MAKE UP REMOVER

Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm

Isla Apothecary Refine & Radiate Mask

Face mask

Isla Apothecary Refine & Radiate Mask

Chobs Sheet Masks

*Isla product I still have but have to throw it away, it is oxidized by now – time for a replacement.  Chobs brand review can be seen here. I haven’t repurchased everything from them, but I still get the masks for those special occasions.

 

TONER/ MIST

Alteya Organics Certified Organic Chamomile Water

Alteya Organics Certified Organic Rose Water

With my skin being so super sensitive, simple mists work the best – see this post if you want more thoughts on them.

*Still love, still have both, as well as their new(ish) Certified Organic Bulgarian Centifolia Rose Water.

 

FACE /NECK TOOLS

Kathleen Natural Facial Sonic Cleansing Device

Kathleen Natural Facial Ionic Treatment Device

*I still have and use both of them, although the Ionic device stopped working on me recently. I’ve changed the battery, but it works for one second before stopping. It might be faulty battery, I do not know for sure – as I can’t get a new one due to being in the lockdown for the time being. I will keep You updated.

 

BODY SCRUB

Natura Siberica Oblepikha & Honey Body Scrub

I don’t want to spend much on scrubs, so this one is perfect for me.

*Haven’t repurchased it due to having a bit too much scrubs for the moment, but this reminds me to put it back on my wishlist!

BODY WASH

Castilian Soap Company Fragrance Free Castile Soap

Again, body washes are something I want clean and not too pricy. This is it.

*I have moved onto other things with a bit more luxurious user experience. This is not a bad product, it is a case of me wanting to try something new.

 

Elsa’s Natural Food Deodorants

DEODORANT

Elsa’s Organic Skinfoods

Talked it as one of my favourites here – and it is still a fave. Hasn’t failed me when so many others did.

*Still a fave, still works, still recommend it. In fact, I just got their Tangerine deodorant in the tin last month, see post here.

BODY OIL

Inner Senses Body Oils

Kathleen Sensual Rose Body & Massage Oil

Inner Senses body oils reviewed here.

*Both brands still have my heart.

hand cream

Neal’s Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Hand Cream (am)

Kiss The Moon Love Night Cream for Hands (pm)

Chosen for different purposes – NYR hand creams are nice and lightweight and sink into the skin really easily, leaving no residue whatsoever – perfect if you have desk job like me. Kiss The Moon one is absolutely gorgeous but richer, which is why I recommend it for the evening. It is my absolute must have winter product, it is saving my hands – and it is now moved into I-will-repurchase-it-until-I-cease-to-exist category.

*Both on my “to repurchase ASAP” list.

 

BODY SPF PRODUCT

Green People Sun Lotion Scent Free

Again, a workhorse product with no review.. Keen to try more Green People products. Tell me your favourites!

*Still a firm favourite, will repurchase come closer to summer. Please God we will be allowed to travel then.

 

Rahua Voluminous Shampoo

SHAMPOO

Rahua Volume Shampoo

See this review right here and you will find out why I don’t want to switch to any other natural shampoo.

*Have been cheating on it trying different brands (sorry, Rahua!), none came even close to it. So I have decided to stop my hair care journey looking for best natural shampoo here and now. Currently using Rahua Classic Shampoo, which is a tad bit cheaper, but just as good.

CONDITIONER

Tabitha James Kraan 4in1 Organic Conditioner Amber Rose

*Still love, but don’t currently own it due to having a full bottle of something else. Miss it though, it is a really good product.

 

HAIR AND SCALP OIL

Alchemy Oils Grapefruit Hair Oil

Let me put it this way – I never believed in special hair oils until I met this little guy. Converted!

*Still love and recommend this.

Walden Natural Perfumes

NATURAL PERFUME

Walden Natural Perfumes

A Different drummer shot straight into my Top Three All Time Faves ever since it came out. See Walden Natural Perfumes review here. It is safe to say it will be repurchased before it runs out – for years and years to come.

*Again, still love, still use on the regular basis, still recommend.

 

NATURAL(ISH) NAIL POLISHES

Glossworks

*jel of everyone who can order them freely – I can’t get them due to postal laws, grr!

 

Natural Supplements from Love Lula

WELLNESS:

Natural vitamins and supplements is not something I skimp on – it is my health I am investing it, so no shortcuts or fillers for me please! If you want me to make a separate blog post on them, do let me know and I will be happy to do it for you.

*Still love and recommend all of them, but some brands are no longer stocked on Love Lula. I am eyeing Kiki Health medicinal mushrooms next.


Well, it looks like majority of my Holy Grail Products are coming from Love Lula – no wonder it is one of my favourite online shops – coupled with outstanding customer service is is very special to my heart indeed! I don’t say that because I am one of their bloggers, I say that because I was a happy customer for years before I was accepted into their LLABP family -and I am happy to report they were treating me the same, with utmost respect and care. So trust me when I say I wholeheartedly recommend this company.
