18 Natural & Organic Favourites

How are all of you, I hope life is treating you well? I’ve been thinking about my favourite products lately and which ones are long standing ones, and I have came up with a blog post on the spot – let’s see my ride or die favourites from 2018 still used daily today?

Natural & Organic Spring 2019 Empties

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back and welcome if you are new here 💕💕💕

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!

*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.

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 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂

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.

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

  • 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.

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

OIL BASED SERUM

  • 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.

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

FACE MASK

TONER/ MIST

FACE /NECK TOOLS

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 🙂
