Got wind in my sails today, not only I published a post earlier today, now I am filming a Youtube video for You guys on what natural supplements I take. Think Solgar, Better You, Kiki Health, Ener C, Fushi Naturals, medicinal mushrooms, baobab powder, all kinds of fun stuff. Shall we see?
Reason #23589 I 💕 Love Lula – You can get so many different things from it – from natural & organic cosmetics to zero waste body/ hair care to sustainable every day use items (bamboo straws, toothbrushes, cotton washcloths anyone?) to your healthier period products. Yes really! See this FB album for 100 Love Lula related posts 🙂
Hope life is treating you well and you are enjoying summer! Today I ordered both my blogger and personal order from Love Lula (it is important to me to support brands and businesses I believe in) and I got thinking what products I purchased from Love Lula time and time again? Turns out more than 20 and counting! Check out this FB album for nearly 90 Love Lula related posts and reviews. My love for this wonderful online store runs deep!

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 🙂 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.
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, sweeteners 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 🙂
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 🙂 Continue reading “Revisiting My 2018 Love Lula Favourites”
Do I love Love Lula Beauty Box? You bet I do – just check this All Things Love Lula FB album here, half of the posts are about Love Lula Beauty Boxes. They are are a great way to discover new items you might have missed otherwise, and I love that anything coming from Love Lula is cruelty free and guaranteed not to have any toxic ingredients – they have strict criteria for any brands/product they accept, and that is taking the guesswork off your shoulders. International boxes sometimes differ from the UK ones due to Love Lula not being able to ship nail polishes or perfumes. Shall we see what’s in the March 2020 box? And my thoughts on January 2020 one?

RAHUA VOLUMINOUS SHAMPOO
My Holy Grail of all green beauty shampoos, and I never want to be without it ever again. Sounds quite dramatic, but hear me out – I have suffered two years of bad hair days trying to switch my shampoo to a clean version, and after two friggin years I wasn’t sure whether to cry and go back to the conventional shampoos or tear my hair out (or rather bird nest at that stage) and keep persevering with natural shampoos that never worked for me. Until RAHUA happened. See full review here and you will know that even though this is quite pricy for a shampoo, to me, it is worth every penny. Last for six months and never gives me any scalp issues 99% of the shampoos did. My Holy Grail if You will.
Rare Indigo is a miraculous product for my dermatitis prone skin. Get this, one sample pot of it was enough to impress me so much that I included it into my Yearly Favourites in 2016, the year I discovered it. I went on to purchase a few full sized versions of it since. I have also had The Bean mask and the The Vitality Elixir Facial Serum, both of them are dreamy. See full review here. The ingredients in each product are outstanding – and I dream of the day I will come into money and will be able to treat myself to the whole Mahalo collection without giving any thought to budgeting.
MAY LINDSTROM THE BLUE COCOON
Another version of the balm with the ultra healing blue tansy in it (hence the blue colour). After a few samples I splurged on a full size this year, and I am in love!
DR.ALKAITIS ORGANIC SOOTHING GEL
W3LL PEOPLE MAKE UP
W3LL People is a brand that has my heart, even though they left EU a while ago. Their Bio Tint Multi-action Moisturizer with SPF30 quickly took over as my favourite facial SPF product, and mascara is amazeballs too. Dreading the day I will run out of both. I am about to reviews them soon, but in the meantime check my thoughts in a bit more detail here and see me using a few products in this post titled Natural Make Up Look Using Natural & Organic Products – sans filters, no less!
Ps. W3LL People, if you are reading this – you need to come back to the EU ASAP! I’ll start a campaign if it needs to be! Yes, I am that serious.
Those Caffeine sheet masks are so great – they make your skin red carpet ready, no less. Whenever my skin is seriously misbehaving – red, blotchy, irritated, dry in places – I always reach for it and it never disappoints. See full review and my tips on how to make them work 3x longer here.
Another Holy Grail and a firm favorite – I am never without one for the last five year. I love all of them, but Moon Balm is my nr1 – it has different texture than the rest of them and it is perfect for nights and winter time.
Two things are absolute standouts for me – their Duet Perfecting Concealer and Pinkibelle, one of their Aria lipsticks. All of the line seems really nice and pure, samples I’ve had never disappointed me and I plan to pick up more products in the near future. Now let’s talk about the products I absolutely love – the concealer is the most full coverage concealer green beauty has to offer. It is one of the hardest working products in my stash – used daily for the last five years, or more, I can’t really remember when I discovered it. I tried numerous clean concealers since, but I always go back to it. A true Holy Grail indeed! See reviews on it here and here. Pinkibelle is more recent discovery and a favourite for very subjecting reason – it is my perfect nude I’ve been looking for for so many years! See me modeling it here.
Living Libations products are one of a kind when it comes to quality, once you will try, soon you will want everything! Sea Buckthorn Best Skin Ever, Dew Dab, shampoos, Zest The Best, Everybody Loves Sunshine with Zinc and dental products are what I’ve tried to date, and I am in love with all of them. Can I have a lifetime subscription to all of them please? And every product I haven’t tried, please?
RMS Beauty Mod Palette
Cult classic in the green beauty, this brand needs no introduction. See me working their Mod palette here.
Another great natural make up brand I’ve used and never reviewed – oops! Love their foundation, primer and multiples.
Any of their supplements is great, and now that are on sale, even better!
Ah, Lotus Wei – you had my heart since the first spritz and swipe… Not only these flower essences work on a cellular level, bu they also contain essential oils and smell ahmaaazing (flower essences don’t smell of anything interestingly enough) and I want to own every single one of them! Review here for those of you interested.
Amazing line for troubled skin like mine. The cleanser is really gentle and their Bio Regenerating Rosehip Oil is stuff of the legends – seriously, it has been on every editor’s “best products” list. For a good reason I’d add, it is seriously the best. It contains oil not from the rosehip seeds, but from the fruit itself too, making it superior to other rosehip oils on the market. One bottle lasts over a year, and if you are looking for natural alternative for retinols, look no further!
HONUA BEAUTY WATER
I was a lucky duck to win this via Instagram competition, and I have to say I love it a lot. Does not irritate my sensitive skin at all. This is one of the products that you can FEEL working on your skin – enzyme exfoliant will reveal new skin underneath in no time. A repurchase for sure!
And if you still will have some space left over, you can get either gua sha or jade roller – you know you want to 🙂
