Welcome back! And welcome if You are new here xoxo
Hope You are well. Today I am excited to start a new segment on my blog called “Testing” where I would share the new products I am about to try that month and also my monthly stash. It could be anything from products I am trying to use up to adding seasonal Holy Grail products back to the rotation because of the weather changes. Shall we?
In no particular order, here are the products I am testing/ using this month:
FUSHI SHEA BUTTERS
With the weather cooling by the minute, it is time to swap Your body lotions for something more nourishing and more skin protecting. Please step forward Fushi Shea butter – or three! Shea butter is so good for You & my skin is just lapping it up. I already blogged about them twice, please go and check the post(s) for more information. Psst, if Your skin is eczema/ dermatitis / chapping prone, You need those!
Evolve Organic Beauty hand cream & Superfood Shine Hair Mask
My favourite clean beauty brand released three new products and I am here for them! Because of Postal strikes in the UK and also here in Ireland, it took me longer to get them, but they are finally here and I can’t wait to begin testing! I will keep You posted for sure. In the meantime, You can check out my favourite products from this brand.

ERE PEREZ bundle from Naturisimo
I was overjoyed to win Ere Perez giveaway on 2nd September together with my fellow blogger buddy Lu from A Life Of Lovely. While she had hers in her hands two days later, mine is still to arrive. After waiting patiently for three weeks, I contacted them to inquire about it and we found out it was sent to US by accident. After de-tour it was finally sent to Ireland only to be stuck at customs since 28 September. Now that I paid charges on it I can finally relax it is definitely will reach me any day now. Can’t wait!
*It arrived the next day 🙂
rms beauty foundation sample
Lu from A Life Of Lovely was kind enough to offer me a sample of hers once I left a comment on her review post saying I am a bit apprehensive about coconut oil in it. The package reached me not without the glitches too – unknown to me it was sent back to her & she was made to pay for the return postage too. I am grateful she was kind enough to post it again and this time round it reached me safe and sound. I am yet to try it, because I am currently healing not only the dermatitis outbreak, but also a zit on my chin that won’t go away for weeks now.
Living Libations mascara
One of my favourite clean beauty brands Living Libations are about to launch a mascara and it sounds the stuff of the dreams! I asked to try it and they said yes, but once again, they are now facing additional hurdles and had to postpone it.
*Update a few weeks later – it is fabulous! I first impressions reviewed it here:

Essential Oil Blends
I love love love essential oils and my “canon” waterless diffuser! I am starting to discover the essential oil blends for cold time of the year. I am trying out Synergy by Pure Anada I got from Live In The Light and Winter Magic by Atlantic Aromatics from Dutch Health Store (see links below) and I love them. They clean and deodorize the indoor air and are totally natural.
Organic & Raw hot Chocolate
As I mentioned in my last Monthly Musings post, my body started craving hot chocolate lately, but I aim for the best quality of it – organic and raw is best. Added medicinal mushrooms sound like my idea of heaven. I am trying to DIY my own, but nothing worthy of posting just yet.
Don’t forget that chocolate is also good for our skin, I wrote about mixing it with manuka honey to create the best DIY mask (and 12 more!) here. Turns out is it Chocolate Week too – I learned it from Evolve Organic Beauty IG page. Go enter their giveaway too if You are inclined. There are also all sorts of chocolate-y beauty goodies at Dutch Health Store and Live In The Light – I am seriously tempted to get Chocolate Best Skin Ever soon. What? It’s my birthday next month and I shall treat myself 🙂
That’s it for this month when it comes to natural beauty stash/ routine/ products. Thanks for reading, I appreciate You taking Your time to visit my little corner of internet!
