How are You, I hope You are all well?

How much do we ? Love Lula?* 100+ posts much in my case! No, really, just check this FB album here.  A long time fan and a customer before I joined their blogger family, I can honestly say that Renata the regular customer was treated no different than Renata The Blogger – always with respect and with the highest standards of care. So it is safe to say my love for this online shop is 100 real! Let’s see what I picked up this month?

Empties! Feels good to finish products to the last drop, but a drag to post about them at the end of the day. But! You guys love it, so I am dutifully serving my followers. Let’s see what I used up this month? This year I am also adding up the costs, something I *might* regret already 🙂 Not too sure I am ready to face to totals I am spending on my beauty 🙂

iHerb Wish List - Green Life In Dublin
iHerb Wish List – Green Life In Dublin

From iHerb must haves to wish list 🙂

After one too many DMs answering Your questions what products and brands from iHerb I recommend, I blogged about them here. While browsing my lists and order history, I fell down the rabbit hole of browsing to store to no end and compiling various lists. Be sure to watch the sales, because they happen a lot there & also use CDI1500 to save further if it’s Your 1st order.

Love Lula Picks & Reviews – Hurraw, Alteya Organics, Kimberly Sayer, Natura Siberica, Organii [April 2019]

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here xoxo

Love Lula Product Picks – Kimberly Sayer, Natura Siberica, Organii, Alteya Organics, Hurraw

How are you keeping? I hope you are all well?

If you follow me for any amount of time, you would know that Love Lula (sadly no more) is one of my absolutely favourite online shops – and for a good reason! Thousands and thousands of clean beauty products to choose from, natural skincare, hair care, body care, tools, make up – they have everything! I have been a satisfied customer for years and years before being accepted into their blogger family, and I am so happy to report that my experiences as customer Renata and blogger Renata are equally good! I always got what I ordered without a single mistake ever, all my queries were answered promptly and clearly, happy to say they have the best customer service ever and they treat everyone with respect.

My Best Love Lula 2018 Products

Hi Lovelies,

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

Love Lula Best Natural & Organic Products

How are all of You? I hope 2019 is treating You well so far?

Idea for today’s post came via Love Lula Natural Beauty Club post, 5 Best Natural Beauty Products of 2018 of Live Naturally N (see her post here) and that got me thinking – how many of my Holy Grail Products of 2018 actually came from Love Lula? 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 or are no longer stocked by Love Lula. If You want to know my Love Lula* Loves too, You are in the right place 🙂 Continue reading “My Best Love Lula 2018 Products”

2018 Favourite Products – Natural & Organic

Hi Lovelies,

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

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.


  • Bella Aura Daily Repair Moisturiser
  • Bella Aura Night Cellular Renewal

My Holy Grail skincare line, see review here.

*Update on why I no longer stand by this brand, even though I still think their products are fantastic here, scroll down to the very end.

  • DrHauschka Rose Day Cream

Holy Grail prior discovering Bella Aura, but still a Hero in winters due to richness, when the temps really drop. See review here.


All amazing for different reasons, but I LOVE them equally. Mahalo has a review here, all others are still waiting their turn. After being a face oil fiend for years and years, I had to give them up due to developing dermatitis (which hates oils) but I still add them for winter, when my skin isn’t coping very well on it’s own in the harsh elements.


  • Earthwise Beauty Nap In The Meadow
  • Alteya Organics Rose Otto Regenerating Concentrate


  • see facial oils

Healing BALM

  • Mahalo Rare Indigo
  • May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon

Please let me explain why I chose these balms that are both uber expensive – it is purely because I need all the healing help I can get with my dermatitis, which sometimes flares up for no apparent reason, and blue tansy, which is present in both products, seems to be the magic that heals my skin. It is my face after all! While Mahalo Rare Indigo is a firm fave for the last three years (just check my 2017 & 2016 Favourites posts), I wanted to change things up a bit this year and purchased Blue Cocoon, which seems to be equally impressive. Pricy as they are, both jars last a year, which makes me justify the price point for them. I see more blue balms popping here and there, so I intend to try more of them out.


  • Hurraw



  • Mahalo Rare Indigo
  • May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon
  • LaVigne Mayan Magic Balm
  • Uliv Skincare

All seriously the best from what I have tried.


  • Alteya Certified Organic Rose Otto Face Wash
  • Dr. Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk


  • Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm


face SPF product

  • Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Organic Facial Moisturiser SPF30 – 120ml
  • Alteya Organic Rose Otto Face Sunscreen SPF25
  • W3LL People Bio Tint Multi Action Moisturiser SPF30

Kimberly Sayer is what I used for the last four years or so, but it might be overthrown by the next two, which are newer discoveries, but oh-so-impressive. I’ll talk about them soon. W3LL People, if you are reading this, come back to EU! I’ll campaign to make it happen if I’ll need to!



  • l’Odaïtès Pépite de la Palmeraie – Gentle Polyphenol Exfoliator


  • Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm
  • followed by a regular cleanser

What I Got In Black Friday Sales 2018

Hello Lovelies,

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

If you want to know what I got this Black Friday this year, you are in the right place. This year I didn’t do  Black Friday sales round up for all the EU & UK online shops and brands post like I did last year, I decided I am against mindless consumerism. However, having said that, I did spend a lot of money myself – it was all on the good stuff that I know suits my super sensitive skin, but the total is still eye wateringly high, and I don’t want to add up totals just yet. Head in the sand method works just fine for now, thanking you 🙂
