Plastic Free Natural & Organic Make Up – it can be done!

Welcome back! And welcome, if you are new here ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Plastic Free Make Up - Natural & Organic
Plastic Free Make Up – Natural & Organic


.
We all know that plastics are bad for us, our health and the planet. And hopefully You have been taking the steps to reduce it in our every day lives & were left wondering – what about make up? Especially if it’s natural and organic? It’s about time we all took action and took responsibility for our actions – every little bit counts! Even not buying or using plastic straws. Or having a lunchbox. Because you are not producing considerable amounts of trash every single day, when it is easily avoidable. Have a Starbucks habit? Take a reusable coffee cup with you. So many people don’t actually know, or choose to ignore, the fact that coffee cups aren’t recyclable. They are not made from paper as one would assume, they are made from mixed materials, and lined with plastic from the inside. Just think what would happen if you poured hot coffee into real paper cup – it would melt within seconds. So, your every take out cup you ever got are still polluting our planet somewhere. Yeah, sorry about being the bad guy for pointing that out.


Thankfully Zero Waste movement is going strong, and more and more people people are joining it. Myself included. This post is for those of you wanting to significantly reduce plastics in your make up stash – let me show you the green beauty options!

Don’t beat yourself up about the products you currently own, just replace them with plastic free options as you go along. It is a bit tricky to avoid plastics all together as I don’t know one company who would house all of their make up products in plastic free packaging (plastic lids and pumps are common) nor I know if it can be done at all, but I wanted to highlight the companies who are trying their best. So, let’s get into it?ย 

ย (Little FYI note upfront, I haven't tried all of these products, I am only one person, but give me time and I will work my way through them, ha. Ask me questions on IG about the products I own and I will do my best to answer)
Zao Organic Make Up

Zao – refillable and recyclable bamboo packaging on most of their products. Bamboo palette for your own customized collection. Review here.

Pure Anada Lip & Cheek rouge in Isabella swatch

Pure Anada – cardboard packaging on pressed pans, like foundation, blushes and eye shadows. metal tube mascara & lipstick. Big fan of foundation & other powder products like blushes & shadows – the pigment is insane! Also, any naysayers claiming that green beauty is boring 50 shades of brown, should take a look at this brand. I have a few posts here, here and here.ย 

RMS Beauty Lipstick Swatches
RMS Beauty Lipstick Swatches


RMS – selected products housed in glass pots. Mainly concealers and lip & cheek stains, bronzers and luminizers. Sadly new products like eye shadows and palettes are in plastic, I am not even sure why? Lipsticks are in aluminium bullets, review here..


100%Pure – cardboard palettes, lipsticks in metal tubes. Cream foundations in glass, blushes and bronzers in metal tins.


Living Nature – foundation in glass. Blushes and other products in recyclable cases.

Studio78Paris – cardboard or glass for selected products like bronzers.PHB – eye shadows in cardboard boxes. Foundation looks like it is in glass, but I am not too sure.

Couleur Caramel – cardboard palettes, single pans, lip gloss & foundation tubes. Customizable cardboard pans. Good quality make up too, big fan!


Kjaer Weiss – ultimate refillable line. Uber expensive, so make sure to try samples first to see it is for you.ย 


Axiology Beauty – vegan lipsticks housed in metal tubes. Not sure about lip crayons though.


Vapour Beauty – foundations, blushes and bronzers, as well as primer housed in metal tubes.

Avril – wooden chubby lipstick thing & lip/ eye liners. Cardboard eye shaddow palettes. Same with Benecos.

Boho Green Make Up – almost entire line is housed in bamboo or cardboard packaging. Adorbs.ย ย 

Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pot in Harmony swatch

Ere Perez – cream multiples in glass pots. Concealer in glass pots. Great formulas at that. Wooden pencils and metal tubes for lipsticks.

Neek Skin Australia – lipsticks in bamboo/ metal tubes.

Sappho New Paradigm – metal mascara tube, refillable cardboard palettes & single pans.

Gressa – mostly glass packaging on everything.

Antonym – how could I forget Antonym until now? Their bamboo packaging is famous! Foundation is housed in glass.

Colorisi – just discovered this brand at Content Beauty & fell for cute square bamboo packaging hard! The whole range is in my wishlist now.

Aether Beauty – amazing looking gem eye shadow palettes in cardboard packaging.

Jane Iredale – many refillable options. Glass packaging where possible.

 

So there’s that, the brands & products at the top of my head. I hope this blog post helps at least one person, I would be very happy with that! If I missed any brand, be sure to let me know on any social media or in the comments. Let’s share the clean beauty love ๐Ÿ™‚

Love Lula Beauty Box June & July 2019 [AD]

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Love Lula Beauty Box June 2019

Love Lula Beauty Box July 2019

Umm, I apologise in advance, this post is gonna be a bit different from my usual Love Lula Beauty Box posts where I would not only list ingredients but also my opinions of everything, as well as previous month boxes. Reason being is that I have too many plates to spin at the moment, work/life balance isn’t really in my favour right now, and as a result my health suffered. That’s the story in a nutshell, normal service resuming in August ๐Ÿ™‚ Not wanting to disappoint my readers, I am still doing a post, but shorter version of it.

LOVE LULA BEAUTY BOX JUNE 2019

Worth 48ยฃ this box hadย  two products from NATOriginย  – Mascaraย andย Eyeliner,ย bothย black (ยฃ15.95+ยฃ7.95).ย Mascara was too natural looking for my short lashes, so I gave it away, but the pencil is in use. Next we had Ayumi Intensive Hair Conditioning Treatment (ยฃ8.99 – 150ml) which I like, I am impressed with a lot of Ayumi products I have tried to far, see this post here. FoM London featured Anti-Pollution Hydra Plump Serum (sample size) which is ultra-light, absorbs quickly and is fragrance free.ย Madara’s Weightless Sun Milk SPF20 sachet sample was a final addition that month.

 

LOVE LULA BEAUTY BOX JULY 2019

Worth whopping 101ยฃ!!! Yes really – no kidding. Really worth subscribing, don’t you think so? The box featured Dafna’s Personal Skincareย Summer Heroes Set in a nice cotton pouch – I will make sure to take this on my holidays (first in four years, overtired me can’t wait!) to test. Next was Madaraย is theirย Plum Plum Lip Perfection Balm (15ml – ยฃ10) – I like it, seems super moisturising with a delicious fruity scent. Next we got Kathleen Natural Refreshing & Lightening Cleansing Lotion (150ml – ยฃ29.50 – I am yet to try this, so let me come back to you on this. I have been impressed with what I have tried from this brand so far though. Next we got 10mlย ofย Skin Alchemist’s Apothecary Sesenne Facial Elixir (10ml – ยฃ30), which has 26 skin loving oils in it. What a box, right?


So, all in all it was a great box, I say well done Love Lula! I believe this time UK box and the international box were the same (sometimes they substitute other products for the ones they canโ€™t send internationally, like nail polishes, perfumes, etc..)ย  Where else you would get that good of a value at the budget price you pay for? Exactly! What I like about Love Lula box is that you are guaranteed to get at least two or three full size products each month, the sample sizes are almost always deluxe samples, like travel sizes. In nearly two years I am getting this box, Iโ€™ve seen sample sachets less than five times, I swear. Are you interested yet? Check out here. Want to see what was in previous boxes as well as plenty of reviews on all kinds of products from Love Lula? See this FB album All Things Love Lula here.

Natural & Organic Products For A Weekend Away

Hi Lovelies!

Welcome back and welcome if you are new here ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

How are all of you, I hope you are well?

Today is going to be a quick post on what natural and organic products I took to Rome for a mini getaway to treat Mom for her birthday. For those of you who might not know, my mom had a breast cancer about a year and a half ago. She won, which pleases me to no end, but being aware of the limited time we had left, I got this idea in my head to whisk my mom away for her ultimate Birthday this year and I didn’t rest until I made that happen.
I got request to see what exactly I took with me, so this post is for you guys – here is the breakdown of the products. Continue reading “Natural & Organic Products For A Weekend Away”
