Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here xoxo
Time for monthly empties! A necessary evil if you will – feels so good to be finishing products down to the very last drop, but such a drag to put these posts together.. The blogger in me wants to be onto the next best thing at all times, but it is also important to show people that the products I am reviewing are the same products I am using. Shall we get into it?
FABULOUS GREEN BEAUTY/WELLNESS PRODUCTS I WILL REPURCHASE
Inika Bold Lash Mascara
Talk about one of the best, if not THE BEST of natural mascaras in the industry! I love love Inika for various different reasons, clean ingredients, great formulas, Chanel-esque packaging that rivals any conventional brand, wide range of appealing colours of products, Nars Orgasm natural dupe blush – yes, really! Step forward Peachy Keen blush (post). You can also see full brand overview here. Let’s come back to this mascara, shall we? I have heard criticism of high price point of it, but hear me out, let me explain why I deem it worth every penny. I am not sure if You know that my clean beauty journey started a decade ago & let me tell you, I have come across plenty of disappointing mascaras – most of them flake, sting the eyes like crazy & run at the first sight of rain or tear – this is none of those things. It gives lots of length & volume, it never flakes (unless it is more than 4m old, do not try this at home kids!) and despite having the most sensitive eyes, I never experienced any irritations. Every time I was tempted to try cheaper mascara, I ended up disappointed, so I kind of made the decision to end up my quest to try all the natural mascaras available. I mean, what’s the point if I already know this is my Holy Grail? And did I mention it is natural, vegan and cruelty free?
*this particular one didn’t last as long as all the others I’ve had, but having solid positive experience with it for many years, I will not hold against it & simply get another one. I am not giving up on the products easily, I have used two tubes of Lily Lolo mascara before reviewing it, and gave 100% Pure multiple and multiple chances before giving up on them because of inconsistency in quality, find the picture of my hand holding like 10 mascaras waaayy down on my IG feed if you want to know more.
Jane Iredale Lash Serum
This is amazing product & I think I ought to review it separately! Not only it makes any (crappy) mascara look amazing, conditions lashes, but get this – it stops flaking in the tracks, a problem with so many natural mascaras out there. Most definitely a repurchase.
Umm, all of those things are Holy Grail status in our casa, repurchased time and time again. See this post below on my Natural Medicine Cabinet. I shall replenish my stash very soon.
EcoEgg Natural Washing refill pellets
This is what I use to wash clothes for my family for many years, it was time for a pellets change. Let me know it You want a separate post on how I do my laundry? I would be happy to put together for you.
GREAT NATURAL ITEMS I WON’T GET FOR NOW DUE TO THE SIZE OF MY STASH
Just FIY up front, nothing wrong with these products or formulas, it’s just I’ve been Marie Kondo-ing my stash with an aim to have only one open product in any given category, bar make up.
AnnMarie Gianni Neroli Toning Mist
Meta Pora Hydrating Mist
Absolutely nothing wrong with either mists, it’s simply a classic blogger mistake of (accidentally) acquiring too much facial mists at once. Both of them came from Live In The Light online shop, which is a UK online shop with uber strict selecting criteria and very very natural products – and that’s why I love them a lot. See around 10 posts I’d done for them below.
