Summer Solstice Favourites – Collaboration with Laura Bruj

Hi Lovelies,

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

How are all of You, I hope You are great? Today is the day I will share my early summer 2019 favourites in collaboration with the ever fabulous fellow green beauty blogger Laura Bruj. You should go and check her out (I will leave all the links at the end of this post) and you will be glad you did – she is US green beauty blogger who is making waves into the right direction, she focuses on all things plastic free, sustainable, natural and as much waste free as possible, and is not afraid to call out greenwashing brands. You just got to love her for it. But wait, there is more – she is also a Youtuber (again, find the link at the end of this post) and she is so good with make up that she is making me all jel – a green beauty chameleon for sure. You just have to scroll her IG page to see for herself.

Let’s see my current favourites now and go see Laura’s favourites straight after? Done deal πŸ™‚

Audrey Hepburn lipstick natural dupe

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back and welcome if you are new here πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Have you ever thought what lipstick Audrey Hepburn wore? And if yes, do you want a natural alternative to it? I must admit that thought never crossed my mind until I watched Lisa Eldridge’s video about her putting Audrey’s DNA on her lips (go see her Youtube video about it) – Lisa is the last non natural Youtuber I watch, simply because I adore her personality, looks she creates and techniques she uses – and in fact she does use some natural and organic products. So while I watched the video, the lightbulb moment hit me – I knew in an instant what the natural alternative is, so instead of keeping it to myself, why I don’t blog about it to let people know? Maybe there’s a soul out there wanting the exact same thing, the Audrey Hepburn look sans the harmful chemicals that comes with it. I mean everybody knows about the lead in the conventional lipsticks many many times above the allowed limit (why is there lead in the lipstick to begin with?). If this post will help at least one person, I will be a happy (cruelty free) bunny πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Audrey Hepburn lipstick natural dupe”

Natural & Organic Spring 2019 Empties

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back and welcome if you are new here πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Green Life In Dublin Empties
Natural & Organic Empties 2019

How are all of you, I hope you are well? I myself am still shaken to the core – I witnessed a car crash unfolding right before my very own eyes yesterday & still can’t shake it the day after.

I am due loads of reviews by the end of this month, but please allow me to take the easy route with empties post right now.

As I mentioned in (rather colossal) last empties post here, I will be splitting my empties into three categories right now with pretty much self explanatory titles, so I won’t have to go into too much details of why I am repurchasing or not repurchasing some product or the other.

Let’s get into it, shall we?

 

fabulous green beauty products I will repurchase

Bella Aura Daily Repair Moisturiser & Bella Aura Instant Lifting Eye Contour

My love for them is infinite, the best green beauty has to offer, full stop. See full review here. I never want to be without them!

Elsa’s Organic Skinfoods x2

I find they work great and keep me stink free, when sooooo many other natural deodorants failed at that. Baking soda free too! See this post to know my thoughts – they are a fave for a reason!

DrHauschka Rose Day Cream x2

I don’t know what’s with me and running out of things in twos, but yeah, that happened. Another fave for a good reason – my dry and dermatitis prone skin just loooves it! See full review here – I swore by this before I discovered Bella Aura, even though I found it a bit too greasy for summers. A must in winters though, that’s why I had two – I like stocking up πŸ™‚

Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Organic Facial Moisturiser SPF30 – 120ml

A staple for the last four years or so. See here to learn why it is my favourite. As you can see, already repurchased.

Terra Nova Cordyceps

Fabulous stuff for boosting immune system, I now swear by it!

KIKI Health Body Biotics For Children 650mg Chewable Tablets

A must for my 6yr old princess. Took care of her tummy and toilet troubles (sorry for the TMI) and I don’t want to switch to any other brand. They taste like sweets, so kids will definitely love them.

Neals Yard Remedies Vitamin C

Repurchasing come next fall. I also really love their elderberry syrup & thyme and honey syrup, brilliant for persistent coughs.

Solgar vitamin D

One of my weapons against dermatitis, I take 2500iu daily. Your ideal level might be different, check with your doctor first. But one tip though – research optimal vitamins and mineral levels versus RDA, your life will be changed forever. And you can thank me later πŸ™‚

NYR Thyme & Honey Syrup

Just like I said, amazing for coughs. I am stocking up every winter.

Manuka Honey

One more thing I can’t live without! I use it as a medicine and also for masking, see my 12 DIY manuka masks with super simple ingredients you already have in your kitchen here.

 

Great natural items I won’t get for now due to the size of my stash

Fat & The Moon All Cream

Very natural and minimalistic, I simply don’t need so many creams I have right now. Came from Live In The Light, see this review of the online shop if you want?

Meadows Lip Balm

Great natural Irish brand I’d reviewed here. Not repurchasing for now, have eight or so lip balms and one more came in the Love Lula box πŸ™‚

Inner Senses Frankincense Essential Oil

A big fan and now ambassador of the brand. Adore their body oils, esp Awakening (review here) & Quiet Earth mask (review here)

By the way, if you are like me and find yourself with lots of products nearing their expiration date, see my blogger friend Bryanna from The Eco Logical post where she list all sorts of creative ways of using up your products.

Madara Peel

Passed to my friend due to having too much of the exfoliating products. Might get again once I will reduce my stash, who knows?

Phb New Gentle Moisturiser

As you can see, I finished the whole lot, but as a hand cream, it wasn’t really suitable for my face.

Green Beauty Items I a not repurchasing ‘cos they weren’t suitable for my needs/ didn’t work for me

Madara Plant Stem Cell Age Defying Sunscreen SPF30

Got this in the hopes that it will be my W3LL People Bio Tint replacement, which I adore but am running out of – fast! Sadly this didn’t work out for me for a few reasons, was too orange and dark (and I chose light shade!), way too scented & it broke me out. Tried ten times and had to give up. My friend who got this loves it to bits however.

Benecos Lip Pencil

The dark raspberry colour didn’t suit me, nothing wrong with the formula.

Leahlani Meli Glow

Good product, but it irritated my dermatitis patch, so that’s the reason I am not repurchasing.

Lots of Love,

Renata.
