2018 Favourite Products – Natural & Organic

Hi Lovelies,

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

2018 Best Natural & Organic Products

So it is that time of the year, wonderful time of the year, my favourite time of the year – Green Beauty Yearly Favourites time of the year. If Green Life In Dublin Green Beauty Awards existed, these would be it! So let’s get started, shall we? We all know I love to talk and to review good products, so majority of them will have reviews either on their own, or as part of Favourites posts – so be sure to hit that search box either here or in my previous blog with 400+ posts here. Just a reminder, my skin is dry, uber sensitive and dermatitis prone. Hair is thin, but lots of it, with a sensitive scalp to boot. Lucky girl, I know 🙂

 

(Full disclosure, some, but not all, of the links are affiliate links, and I  thank You for using them - they are at no extra cost to you as a consumer. All products mentioned here are tested thoroughly by me, and truly my Holy Grail products - I would never recommend anything that isn't my true favourite. Some of the products date back for years and haven't left my Yearly Favourites for well, years! I also want to point out that Google collects data while you browse my blog, but I think we all know that at this point?)

Sarya Couture make up vegan face brush (102 face curve)

I love vegan make up brushes and this looks perfect for base as the curved shape will allow me to get in to the contours of the face!

Annane Sensitive skin serum

This brand is a bit of a splurge, but having tried it before I know the quality of the formulations is worth it. My skin has a tendency towards redness and sensitivity and this serum looks like a perfect match for me.

Kjaer Weis Collectors kit

I am a big fan of both refillable make up and the Kjaer Weis formulas, which I have been using for years. The collectors kit is the ultimate tool for make up on the go that can be filled up with Kjaer Weis colours of your choice. Simply gorgeous.

ByBi Bakuchiol Booster

Bakuchiol is a new plant based ingredient that is getting a lot of attention due to its retinol like properties on the skin. This booster also features olive squalane, which my skin loves!

Lina Hanson Global Treasures

Balms a must for winter parched skin and Lina Hanson is a brand that has really impressed me with their ingredients and formulas. This balm looks beautiful and even has gold leaf on the top! Really luxurious.

Reviews I Never Posted

Hi Lovelies,

 

Welcome back! And welcome, if you are new here

Today is the day I have to get over myself and bring out less than positive feedback on products and brands – even if it brings me out in rash! As a natural people pleaser I want to be nice to everyone around me, and I am always about support for fellow green beauty sisters! Green Beauty community is largely nice and supportive, and in my mind I would like everyone to get along well and be supportive of one another. But at the same time I know there are undercurrents in it, as any other industry.  This post is not about throwing people under the bus or some people’s or brands kind of nasty behaviour behind the scenes – although I could tell a few stories.

Walden Natural Perfumes Review

Hello Lovelies,

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

Walden Natural Perfumes Review

Today I am coming at you with a review of some fabulous natural perfumes that are still into my Top Three Favourites, ever since they launched a little more than a year ago, and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

Walden Natural Perfumes are 100% natural and made from the finest absolutes, resins and essential oils in the world. They are named after Henry David Thoreau’s seminal novel Walden. Part meditation, part handbook for simple living in natural surroundings the book has inspired countless readers and Walden Perfumes is proud to follow in those footsteps. Offering a natural alternative to mass-produced fragrances made by industrial processes and shilled by celebrities, Walden Perfumes is proud to return to the glory days of real perfumery when fragrances were made by hand in small batches from natural ingredients of the finest quality. They are housed in simply stunning bottles, they are very simplistic, but elegant, there’s chunky square glass bottle with a wooden lid and a simplistic label. The fragrance feels very decadent and luxurious to me, exactly the way I like my perfumes to be. There’s five scents to choose from.

A Little Star-Dust: Ylang Ylang, Iris & Jasmine with Amyris & Tonka Bean
(Finalist for ‘Best Natural Beauty Product’, Natural & Organic Awards Europe 2017)
A Different Drummer: Pepper, Cedarwood, Amber, Amyris & Sandalwood
Castles in the Air: Citrus, Tropical Flowers and Lavender
The Solid Earth: Petitgrain, Vetiver, Patchouli Oil & Amyris
Two Eternities: Wild Roses, Jasmine, Iris, Bergamot & Sweet Orange Oil

A Different Drummer Walden natural perfume

I chose “A Different Drummer” one as it appealed the most to me, and I am pleased to say I got it right (sandalwood and amber – yes please!) – I can’t stop oohing and aahing over it ever since I got it! I fully intend to try samples of them all as the time goes by, “A Little Star Dust” is calling my name too, but I am sure “A Different Drummer” will be in my favourites forever. When first applied, it can be a little heady and strong, but soon sinks into your skin and transforms into a natural scent that smells classy and exotic at the same time, almost one of a kind! I like not smelling like everyone else, and that is exactly that type of a smell. Choosing fragrance is very personal to me, and that is why I am so picky about it, I reject 95% of the fragrances easily. That is why I am so chuffed with myself for getting it right from the very start with Walden. The scent can easily be worn by men or women, I noticed my hubby sneakily using it too. I simply adore this scent and I am simply under the spell and utterly in love with it! I look forward to wearing it – that is saying something, believe me. Well done, Walden Natural Perfumes, your products are simply exquisite! I am looking forward to wearing them for years to come. As you can see from the photos, I love it so much that I invested in a baby roll version of it, so I could carry it with me at all times!
The fragrances are available in a few different formats, 50ml bottles, 15ml purse sprays, 10ml oil based roll ons, cutest baby roll ons bottles that you can fit in any sized purse, and of course, sample sizes, so you can try before you buy. Don’t you love samples? All available via LoveLula.
(free shipping worldwide for all orders £15+ woohoo or what?)
