What To Take On Holidays – Natural Beauty Edition

Hi Lovelies,

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

As you might know, I went on holidays recently – first in four years, so it was a big deal to me 🙂 I asked you if you want me to post about what natural and organic products I took with me and you said yes, so this post is for you guys! I will be very honest with you here and will let you know what products ended up working and NOT working in the different climate. You see, I live in the cold, rainy and humid climate here in Ireland (hello +14*C to 20*C summers with rain daily or trice weekly at the very least. Heatwave? What heatwave?) and Mediterranean ain’t that, we all know it. So a couple of products I counted on working for me turned out complete disappointments while one other spoiled as soon as we touched down, I swear. I will also make a list of products I will take on my next holidays, while my mind is still fresh on what worked and not. Shall we get started?

My Best Love Lula 2018 Products

Hi Lovelies,

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

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 💕💕💕

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.

MOISTURISER

My Holy Grail skincare line, see review here.

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

FACIAL OIL

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.

WATER/ ALOE BASED SERUM

Bella Aura is what floats my boat the most, see first impression review here. The other two are good in their own ways too, choose according to your needs.

OIL BASED SERUM

  • see facial oils

Healing BALM

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.

LIP BALM

ACNE TREATMENT

DERMATITIS TREATMENT

All seriously the best from what I have tried.

FACE CLEANSER (GEL /CREAM/ LIQUID)

BALM CLEANSER

OIL CLEANSER

face SPF product

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!

BALM WITH SPF (BEACH BALM & LIP BALM)

FACE EXFOLIANT 

MAKE UP REMOVER

EYE MAKE UP REMOVER

UNDER EYE CREAM

Seriously the best. No crows feet at five minutes to forty, that’s all I can say about it!

FACE MASK

TONER/ MIST

FACE /NECK TOOLS

If anyone’s interested you can check my 2017 Yearly Favourites here and 2016 ones here.

Lots of Love,

What I Got In Black Friday Sales 2018

Hello Lovelies,

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

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, bu 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 🙂
