Let's start 2017 with Lots Of Love ???

A post shared by ?Green beauty blogger, Renata? (@green_life_in_dublin) on

First and foremost, THANK YOU! Thank You to each and every one of You who followed me, read my posts, engaged with me, thanks for the brands and online shops who worked with me – I wish I could go round giving bear hugs and kissed to all of You!

Without further ado, let’s get into my FAVES -these are the products that are not only natural, but they do work the same if not better than their “regular” counterparts – and I know that because I have made my way through mountains of products over the years. I wouldn’t be recommending a  product I haven’t used and loved myself.

Natural and Organic Skincare reviews
Natural and Organic Skincare – and lots of reviews


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

My absolute favourite skincare products! Can’t live without them, period. Not only they are suitable for my uber favourite skin, but they help manage my dermatitis in a way no other products did. See full review here and don’t forget my ambassador code “Renata15” saves you 15%

*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.


  • Mahalo The Vitality Elixir

Pricy, but oh-so-beautiful! I really enjoyed using it, see review here. Let’s put it this way, if you pressed me to get rid of all my facial oils and choose only ONE for the rest of my life, it would be this. Enough said!

Living Libations is on another level when it comes to the true natural products and ingredients. You might balk at the price first, but soon you will be a convert, trust me. This oil is a true multitasker, you can wash with it and use as your only one product if you like – it is good for face, body or as a hair treatment. Ingredients are fantastic. Living Libations review here.

  • Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil

Much more wallet friendly face oil option – and this is the best rosehip oil I’ve tried to date. A cult favourite not only on the green beauty scene but also on the conventional one too – I think this is the most featured “editor’s favourite” natural product to date. Want natural retinol alternative? This is it – you won’t believe the changes in your skin in one month.


  • Earthwise Beauty Nap In The Meadow

Great healing ingredients like turmeric supercritical CO2 extract and german blue camomile oil, if you only get one thing from the brand, I recommend this one.

  • Alteya Organics Rose Otto Regenerating Concentrate

Oil free serum packed full of anti-aging and regenerating ingredients. A true natural powerhouse.

  • Dr.Alkaitis Organic Soothing Gel

Very healing gel packed full of great ingredients! It was a key player in healing my dermatitis, so I recommend it highly. Can be used to treat itchy sensitive scalp too, so it’s a true multitasker well worth the money.

  • Ere Perez Quandong Green Booster Serum

Bought primarily for the natural form of vitamin C, this packs a punch when it comes to actually hydrating the skin. Chockfull of great ingredients too.


See facial oils. Some call it serums, I call it facial oils. Serum is something aloe/water based with runny consistency, not an oil. Just my 2 cents 🙂


  • Mahalo Rare Indigo

Get this, one sample pot of this was enough for me to put this into my Yearly Favourites! Amazing healing properties like no other, so so good for my #dermatitis that I consider it as my Holy Grail product ever since I discovered four or five years ago. Went through a few full sizes and I never want to be without it ever again. Pricy, but worth every penny to me. Mahalo review here.

  • May Lindstrom The Blue Cocoon

Holy Grail product for my dermatitis prone skin, it works like magic healing it in no time. Can’t be without it. won’t be without it. Expensive, yes, but worth every penny to me.

*PS – I don’t have them both at the same time, only one, as not to waste a good product. I get whichever is on a good deal at the time (always watch deals like a hawk, haha!) – I find that in terms of efficiency they are both equally impressive.


I am a bit of lip balm connoisseur – I need my lip balms to be very nourishing & stay on the lips for long time! These are the best!

  • Hurraw Moon Balm
  • DrHauschka Lip Care Stick
  • DrHauschka Lip Balm Pot
  • Golden Lip Balm from ISUN Skincare
  • Flying Wild Rosemary & Honey Lip Balm

Acne Treatment

Pricy, yes, but once you try any of Living Libations product, you won’t want to go back to whatever you had before. The quality is far superior to anything else on the market and this 15ml bottle of pure essential oils blend is guaranteed to last you over a year. Review here.

Dermatitis Treatment

  • Mahalo Rare Indigo
  • May Lindstrom The Blue Cocoon

See descriptions above, both are way better than any dermatitis products I’ve tried to date. Both worth every penny. Watch the deals if you are on a budget like me. One jar lasts a year and doubles up as an under eye “cream”, so I deem them both worth the price.

  • Bella Aura products

My love for Bella Aura products knows no bounds – they are so well suited for my dermatitis prone skin, in fact they healed it is a matter of days. As long as I stay on Bella Aura train, using their products exclusively, my skin is happy and healthy. If I fall off the wagon, testing other products, my skin protests very soon. I never want to be without those products, ever. The best skincare a green beauty world has to offer. truly.

*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.

  • LaVigne Mayan Magic Balm
  • Uliv Skincare Souffle Moisturizer

Face Cleanser (gel /cream/ liquid)

  • Alteya Certified Organic Rose Otto Cleansing Milk

My second favourite, a very gentle milky cleanser that does not irritate my uber sensitive skin. A rare find indeed, as 98% of them do that. Very good value for money as you get a huge 200ml bottle.

Balm Cleanser

  • Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm

If you are into a balm cleansers, this is a good one. Rosehip oil based, so excellent for the skin. See my review here – and please know it is a true multitasker too – can be used as a balm, on the face, body, lips, elbows, cracked heels, hands, etc.

Oil Cleanser

Another great multitasking product with amazing healing ingredients! This oil can be used as a cleanser, moisturiser for the face or the body, hair treatment and so on.

Moisturiser with SPF

  • Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Organic Facial Moisturiser SPF30 – 120ml

Possibly the best city face SPF product – you get a giant 120ml bottle with a sanitary pump, the product is non drying, quickly absorbing, no dreaded white cast, no breakouts – could you ask for more? I always come back to this. A firm favourite for the last five years.

Balm with SPF (Beach Balm & Lip Balm)


  • Green People Organic Children Scent Free Sun Lotion SPF30

No review per se, but this is what we all use on sun holidays for well over a decade – and no sun burn in sight!

Make Up Remover

  • Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm

Eye Make Up Remover

Toner/ mist

  • Isun Skincare Ormus Myst
  • Alteya Organics Certified Organic Chamomile Water
  • Alteya Organics Certified Organic Rose Water

Isun was a love at a first spritz- you have to try it at least once! (review) Alteya Organics stuff is really pure, you can tell it straight away. (review)

  • Dafna’s Personal Skincare Active Mist

One of my favourite things of the moment, it is really beautiful! Definitely going into my Current Favourites very soon. Did you know it has an incorporated oil too?

Face Mask

  • 100% Pure Caffeine Sheet Masks

Gets your skin red carpet ready, no less! Whenever my skin is at it’s worst – red, inflamed, patchy, dry in places – I always reach for this and it always helps. Not everything from this brand worked for me, but this mask is the reason I come back time and time again. Read my full review and tip how to make this mask last 3x longer here.

  • Isla Apothecary Refine & Radiate Mask

Great mask with turmeric, I really love it. Please keep your eyes peeled for a review in a near future.

  • 100% Collagen Boost Sheet Mask

Equally as good as the Caffeine Sheet Masks, I try to have one for special occasions.

  • Chobs Sheet Masks

Want to try Korean Beauty but want natural stuff? This is the way to go! Certified organic, no less. Review here.

Face /Neck Tools

Natural and Organic Make Up – and lots of reviews


  • Inika Certified Organic Pure Primer With Hyaluronic Acid 50ml

It diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the skin. Extra hydration from hyaluronic acid creates a perfect base. Increases skin elasticity. Provides a youthful and dewy glow. Inika review here.

mineral Foundation

A long time favourite, ever since I discovered it years ago. Seriously, just check my Yearly Favourites for the last four years! Full coverage, blendable, lasts all day, affordable – what else would you want? Minimal ingredients too. Review here. Don’t forget the code to save 25%!


  • Inika Certified Organic Liquid Foundation

One of the best natural foundations on the market for sure. Really nice semi dewy finish with light to medium coverage and good staying power. Great nontoxic ingredients like hyaluronic acid. natural vitamins, antioxidants & minerals. It hasn’t left my #yearlyfavourites or #HolyGrails for at least four years – that says something, doesn’t it? Full review here.

BB cream

  • W3LL People Bio Tint Multi Action Moisturizer SPF30

This is my Holy Grail complexion product at the moment and for the last year as well. It does all the things you want your tinted moisturiser to do plus it has a built in SPF30 – perfection if you ask me. I never want to be without it! This might be my favourite BB cream / tinted moisturiser  product – and my favourite green beauty product I have tried in a really long time! It is light, but yet gives the most amazing luminous finish to the skin – I can see my skin but it also miraculously blurs all the imperfections – talk about real time Instagram filter? It does not tug or can be felt on the skin, which is exactly how I like my make up to be. Lasts all day.

*Update a year later – the brand sold out to Elf and lost me as a customer. End of story.

  • Inika Organic BB Cream Foundation

This is very comparable to  Inika certified organic foundation, great ingredients, light coverage (less than foundation, but buildable). Great product all around, but I wish this had SPF in it. If you aren’t looking for SPF in your BB cream (for photography flash or other reasons), this is the product for you. Did I mention 80% of ingredients are organic? Inika review here.

Cream concealer

My favourite concealer ever! I could talk about it for days, no kidding. I have stayed with it for the last five years through branding, production and packaging changes and it is still the item I reach for every single day. True workhorse or Holy Grail if I know one. Full coverage, moisturising, creamy and all natural. See my review here & Hynt Beauty brand review here.

  • Ere Perez Cream Concealer

My second favourite concealer, very comparable to the Hynt Beauty, only this is kind of sticky and does not fully set. Still a great product, if you can’t get your paws on Hynt Beauty, get this one. Full coverage indeed. See review here.

Powder concealer/ corrector

Get these brilliant colour correctors made from pure minerals – the most full coverage pigmentation I’ve ever seen, truly amazing! Full size for only 8$ CA – a steal, considering you will get years use out of them! See review here. Again, don’t forget the code above.

Setting Powder

  • as a dry skin gal, I do not use it


  • Inika Bronzer In Sunkissed

It adds a beautiful sun-kissed glow to your skin that looks and feels natural. Perfect for use over your foundation, or simply apply on your fresh-faced skin for an added glow.

A beautiful sun-kissed glow to your skin all year round. Very clean ingredients and very pigmented too. Comes in different shades and pressed format too. Go get it and thank me later 🙂 Inika review above.

Couleur Caramel Compact Bronzer

Brand overview here. This bronzer is perfect if You are looking for a natural looking bronzer without too much redness in undertone. This bronzer is pressed into such a pretty mandala pattern, that you might deem it too pretty to use, I know I had qualms about starting using it, see here 🙂


  • Inika Peachy Keen (loose)

Oh my gosh, where do I begin? This is my most favourite green beauty item ever and I never want to be without it, ever! Want Nars Orgasm alternative without the nasty chemicals in it? This is it – and it looks good on every skintone! See me talk about it and other natural Nars Orgasm dupes here.

It is a  so pigmented that you only need a tiny dip with a brush for both cheeks application, promise. Meaning it will last you years! Such a fun vibrant color too, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Did I mention it is an absolute bargain too? 12$ CA for a whopping 9gr of product when blushes are normally 3gr. Bargain worldwide shipping too. See review here. Don’t forget “GREENLIFE” code if You want to save 25%


  • Inika Highlighting Creme

The only highlight I ever use, true story! The tube looks tiny, but you are guaranteed to get months if not years use out of it. Not too golden, not too pink, perfect balance in colour to suit all skin tones, and I am yet to see the person who wouldn’t love it. Tiny shimmer particles do not translate to the face, you are only getting healthy and gorgeous glow. You can make it subtle if that’s your thing, or really pile it on if you want to be seen from outer space – your face, your rules! Did I mention that it is certified Organic, Halal & Cruelty Free? A firm fave for years and year, why re-invent the bike, right?


  • Inika Long Lash Mascara

This mascara has been my Holy Grail for years now and a repurchase over and over and over time and time again.. Great length and volume, no smudges or flakes, ever – I mean could you ask for more, really? A pure, mineral-enriched formula, Ideal for sensitive eyes Certified Vegan. Certified Halal. Certified Cruelty-Free. Any Inika mascara is amazing! Brand review here.

Eyebrow Product(s)

Eye Pencil

  • 100 Pure Creamy Long Lasting Liner

The softest and most pigmented eye liner in green beauty world. I have tried many, but I always come back to this. In all honesty it smudges a bit, but giving you instant rock chick look without you having to do a thing.

Liquid Eyeliner

  • Couleur Caramel Liquid Eyeliner

Single/ Duo Eye Shadow

  • Inika Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow Duo in Golden Oyster

If I were told I could only keep one eye shadow product that’s not a pallete, this would be it! Shimmery neutrals are my jam, as well as Inika, so you get the idea. Very pigmented and long lasting, you can’t really go wrong with Inika! There’s more shades and loose mineral shadows too.

Eye Shadow Palette

  • Couleur Caramel Eye Essential Palette Nr1 – Warm

Brand overview here – haven’t been disappointed by any of the products!


My perfect nude lipstick period, nothing ever can come close to that – purely because of how well the colour suits me. If you have been searching all your life for your perfect nude, you will know what I mean. Creamy, moisturising, all natural, good staying power – I could go on! Comes with a flip top with a mirror and a lip balm too. Review here.


  • 100% Pure Gemmed Lip Gloss Peacock Ore

If you loved Lancome Juicy Tubes, you need this in your life! Perfect dupe, only with natural ingredients and made with real gems – say what? I even made a whole post dedicated to these lip glosses here.

Couleur Caramel Lip Glosses

Different formula, but I really enjoy these too! Smooth and very pigmented formula with nourishing ingredients, a win in my world. Brand review here.

Natural & Organic Hair Care – and lots of reviews of it


  • Rahua Volume Shampoo $$$

Reviewed here. Long story short, this is my best natural shampoo! Pricy, not going to lie, but totally worth it in my opinion. More thoughts in that blog post.

  • Ayumi Sandalwood Shampoo $

Budget brand discovered in 2019, I talk about it here. The whole family is really enjoying their shampoos, scrubs, body oils, body washes and soaps – repurchased many many times. Be sure to peruse the ingredients, it might not be for purists among us.


  • Tabitha James Kraan 4in1 Organic Conditioner Amber Rose $$

Really nice light organic conditioner that you can use as a leave in or styling product. It is a winner for me!


  • Alchemy Oils Grapefruit Hair Oil $$

Great formula, the oil is not greasy, washes out well leaving hair silky soft, not greasy like most of the other hair oils do. Full size lasts for absolutely ages!

  • Zatik Organic Hair Oil $

Organic blend of natural oils, the product works great at soothing my sensitive scalp & moisturizing my hair. Non greasy, is easy to wash out and smells like candy. I am definitely a fan.

Dry Shampoo

Reviewed here. How about a truly natural dry shampoo with probiotics? Say what?

Dermatitis/ sensitive scalp Treatment

  • Dr.Alkaitis Organic Soothing Gel

Natural and Organic Body Care – and lots of reviews of it

Body Scrub

  • Natura Siberica Oblepikha & Honey Body Scrub

Budget option.

  • Ayumi Sandalwood Body Scrub

Another budget option, the brand is a pleasant discovery of 2019, see here.

  • Bloomtown The Hedgerow Blackberry & Honeysuckle Sugar Scrub

Yet another budget option with a scent to die for! Review here.

  • REN Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish

Body Wash

for the purists of us out there

  • Kathleen Natural Sensual Rose Bubble Bath and Shower Gel

  • Ayumi Sandalwood Body Wash

Ayumi is a pleasant (and budget!) discovery of the 2019 and Sandalwood range is my favourite. See more here.

Work amazingly well and no baking soda in sight! See more here.

Body Oil

  • Bloomtown The Hedgerow Nourishing Dry Oil

Reviewed here, it is one of my favourite products from the line. Actually, the whole line is a favourite! Budget friendly too, but not purist level natural, so be sure to read review first.

  • Inner Senses Body Oils

See a review here.

  • Kathleen Sensual Rose Body & Massage Oil

A treat for the body that I don’t want to run out of. See me talk about it more here.

If you are on the market for the best and the most natural green beauty world has to offer. See Living Libations review here.


Evolve Organic Beauty Tropical Body Butter

My new favourite because of the amazing scent, Tahitian monoi with hibiscus. I consider it a wellness product, because there is nothing better than applying it post shower. The scent lasts a few hours, the softness, a few days! Amazing texture too. Review.

Body SPF Product 

Both trusty faves in Casa Green Life In Dublin. Green People is a true workhorse used every summer for a decade. 100%Pure is much easier to use on kids, as it is in a spray format, but a bit harder to get (for me). Living Libations balm is a handy stick that can be used on the face or anywhere, really, nose, shoulders, chest, etc. Review here.

Dermatitis/ irritations Treatment


  • Neals Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Hand Cream (am)

My favourite AM hand cream. It is perfect for the daytime – sinks in quickly, leaving no residue and thus not getting in a way of what you want/ need to do. Some hand creams are too oily and might interfere with your tasks – driving, typing, etc. This is not those things.

  • Kiss The Moon Love Night Cream for Hands (pm)

It is perfect for the night time. Or Winter time. Rich, buttery, sinks in quick leaving hands soft, supple and happy. I want an endless supply! See post here.
