Lockdown Empties – Natural & Organic Products

Hi Lovelies,

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. I won’t be linking the products or reviews, as that takes too much time I don’t have anyways, so if any products take your fancy, please hit that search button in the top right corner of my blog and I am pretty sure some posts will come up. Shall we get into it?

Supplements at Love Lula

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Supplements at Love Lula
Supplements at Love Lula

.
How much do I love Love Lula? 80+ posts much πŸ™‚Β This is the online shop we know and love for make up and skincare, but do you know it carries aromatherapy and health & wellness products too? I am really impressed with their new addition Soil essential oils (review here & post how I use them here) Love Lula also has vitamins, minerals & superfoods too. Let’s see what I got and what do I think of it?

 

ENER C

I love EnerC! I cannot keep stock of these tasty vitamin C drinks in the house – everyone loved them and I love watching everyone get 1000mg of vitamin a pop? Anyone wants to sponsor me and get me a container of them? That would me super happy πŸ™‚ If You want to know more thoughts in them, I wrote about them in my Natural Medicine Cabinet post here.

Ingredients in Ener-C Raspberry:
Supplement Facts Serving Size: 1 Packet (9.25 g) Servings per Container: 30 Amount Per Serving % Daily Value Calories 25 2% Total Carbohydrate 5 g 2% Sugars 5 g 2% Vitamin C (ascorbic acid, mineral ascorbate mix) 1000 mg 1,667% Vitamin A (acetate) 2500 IU 50% Vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) 15 IU 50% Vitamin B3 (niacin) 5 mg 25% Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) 2 mg 100% Folic Acid 40 mcg 10% Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) 25 mg 417% Pantothenic Acid 2.5 mg 25% Calcium 50 mg 5% Phosphorus 38 mg 4% Iodine 150 mcg 100% Magnesium 60 mg 15% Zinc 5 mg 33% Manganese 0.5 mg 25% Chromium 12 mcg 10% Potassium 200 mg 6% Other Ingredients: Cane Fructose, citric acid, malic acid, sodium bicarbonate, natural raspberry flavor, tapioca maltodextrin, silicon dioxide, glycine, aspartic acid, tartaric acid, cysteine HCl, purple sweet potato, caramel color, beet juice powder.

KIKI HEALTH Baobab powder (organic)

Also not a new thing to me. It is what I think of natural form of vitamin C + so much more superfood. I should use it so much more that I do actually. Now that I am typing this, I got an idea of mixing it with manuka honey for a face mask – I think it should work? I don’t see why not? For in depth post about baobab, see here.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Baobab Powder

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Naturally free from gluten and wheat.

No artificial colours, preservatives, sweetenersΒ or fillers.

kiki health liquid chlorophyll

A new addition to my wellness arsenal, I have never tried it. The way I look at it, it should help the body to tip towards alkalinity, therefore get or stay healthy. Chlorophyll is basically the blood of the plants, right? The taste is ok & I will keep You posted on how I found it in my next month’s Love Lula post.

Ingredients in KIKI Health Liquid Chlorophyll:
Chlorophyll extracted from Medicago Sativa (alfalfa), purified water. Naturally free from gluten and wheat. NO ARTIFICIAL COLOURS, PRESERVATIVES, SWEETENERS OR FILLERS

 

PS. Please keep in mind that some of the supplements fly off the shelves really fast, but Love Lula team are working hard at getting them back as soon as possible. So if something is out of stock, do check back or enter email to be notified. I know I did.

So that’s all for today, please let me know what supplements are You guys taking? I would love to know and add them to my list. All the medicinal mushrooms are already on it πŸ™‚

See You here next Tuesday.

Sending LOVE & LIGHT!

18 products from 2018 Best I still use daily

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Hope all of You are doing well? After revisiting my 2018 Love Lula favourites, I was curious how many other products I still use from two years ago? This listing of favourites of the moment used daily – there are some of the things I still have and love to death like BeDew Dab by Living LibationsΒ  which is a fantastic blend for blemishes – but not used daily, only when needed. Same for Kathleen Natural Facial Ionic Treatment Device or Living Libations Rose Quartz Facial Roller. Same for my Manuka Honey DIY masks – I love and use them on the regular basis, just not daily. Some of the things I ran out of & still haven’t repurchased due to having other open products in the same category, like Couleur Caramel Liquid Eyeliner & Kiss The Moon Love Night Cream for Hands. Odd, I know – I will blog about those products soon. It was so hard to narrow down the products to 18 – as they are pretty much all my faves still! Shall we start?

How I use essential oils

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

How I use essential oils
How I use essential oils

Essential oils. These little bottles of plant magic help me so much in these difficult times when the world is upside down. You might remember this Soil essential oils review (here) or this Living Libations Nebulizing Diffuser review (here) posts I’d done recently – both are still the loves of the moment! In this post I will explain the ways I use essential oils, as I get lots of questions about it. The brands I love and trust are Living Libations, Neal Yard Remedies & more recent addition, Soil. Organic is always best, but if can’t afford it, at least do the homework on brand’s background check – do they grow their plants? How they are sourcing their raw materials if not? What is their extraction method? Do they use solvents? All that matters greatly, because the finished product is only as good as your starting material. You don’t want concentrated pesticides, am I right? Here is a good article on what good practices principles You want to be looking for.

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Green Beauty Deals, steals & discounts

Hope all of You are holding up well! After initial panic mode in the first few weeks of social distancing, I’ve come to realize that our favourite indie brands and online shops need our support now more than ever. If we stopped buying from them now, they would find it very hard to keep going & when we will come out out of this haze a few months on, they might *not* be there anymore – gasp.. This post lists deals and discounts from my favourite brands and stores that truly have my heart.

Also don’t forget to follow my FB page offersΒ orΒ this Pinterest board if that’s what You like better? I think we all spent a bit more than we liked recently stocking up on goodness-knows-what recently, so savings can’t hurt, right? Continue reading “Deals & Savings on Natural Products – April 2020”

Revisiting My 2018 Love Lula Favourites

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome, if you are new hereΒ πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

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 πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Revisiting My 2018 Love Lula Favourites”

Sending Love & Light To All Of You! Shine a light to fight Coronavirus

Hello Lovelies,

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

This.

There’s so much I wanted to say to lift people up. Very hard when I am coming apart at the seams myself – I am like a yo-yo emotionally. Stories of waters clearing in Venice, no smog in China & animals coming back to the places they haven’t been spotted for years are nice to see, but I wish this wouldn’t involve people dying. My heart bleeds and I am praying for the world!

This blog is also an opportunity to invite all of you people to get together and shine a light to fight this damned virus this Friday at 20.30 UK time (see this relevant FB group for matching time around the world). Because collectively we have power & if we will join together in thought at the same time, it will make a huge difference.

Also this:

Also this.

 

We are in this together. Let’s join together and pray for the world.

 

Sending Lots of Love & Light,

Renata.

Ps. I will be taking some time off blogging - I hope you understand. I have a family to take care of, not used to juggling everyone in a small space with added schooling on top of it - hard as it is, but add meltdowns & anxieties, food and supplement shortage & it is little wonder I am panicked. Anxious. And so many other things, I do not have to explain. Very nearly have panic attacks before going to work (it is considered essential) & hearing all the stories just fuels the bad state I am in. Blogging is the last thing on my mind right now. x
