What I am testing & using in October 2022 – Green Life In Dublin

Natural Products Wishlist - Spring 2024 - Green Life In Dublin


Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And welcome if You are new here xoxo

Hope You are well. Today I am excited to start a new segment on my blog called “Testing” where I would share the new products I am about to try that month and also my monthly stash. It could be anything from products I am trying to use up to adding seasonal Holy Grail products back to the rotation because of the weather changes. Shall we?

In no particular order, here are the products I am testing/ using this month:


With the weather cooling by the minute, it is time to swap Your body lotions for something more nourishing and more skin protecting. Please step forward Fushi Shea butter – or three! Shea butter is so good for You & my skin is just lapping it up. I already blogged about them twice, please go and check the post(s) for more information. Psst, if Your skin is eczema/ dermatitis / chapping prone, You need those!

Evolve Organic Beauty hand cream & Superfood Shine Hair Mask

My favourite clean beauty brand released three new products and I am here for them! Because of Postal strikes in the UK and also here in Ireland, it took me longer to get them, but they are finally here and I can’t wait to begin testing! I will keep You posted for sure. In the meantime, You can check out my favourite products from this brand.

ERE PEREZ bundle from Naturisimo

I was overjoyed to win Ere Perez giveaway on 2nd September together with my fellow blogger buddy Lu from A Life Of Lovely. While she had hers in her hands two days later, mine is still to arrive. After waiting patiently for three weeks, I contacted them to inquire about it and we found out it was sent to US by accident. After de-tour it was finally sent to Ireland only to be stuck at customs since 28 September. Now that I paid charges on it I can finally relax it is definitely will reach me any day now. Can’t wait!

*It arrived the next day 🙂

rms beauty foundation sample

Lu from A Life Of Lovely was kind enough to offer me a sample of hers once I left a comment on her review post saying I am a bit apprehensive about coconut oil in it. The package reached me not without the glitches too – unknown to me it was sent back to her & she was made to pay for the return postage too. I am grateful she was kind enough to post it again and this time round it reached me safe and sound. I am yet to try it, because I am currently healing not only the dermatitis outbreak, but also a zit on my chin that won’t go away for weeks now.

Living Libations mascara

One of my favourite clean beauty brands Living Libations are about to launch a mascara and it sounds the stuff of the dreams! I asked to try it and they said yes, but once again, they are now facing additional hurdles and had to postpone it.

*Update a few weeks later – it is fabulous! I first impressions reviewed it here:

Essential Oil Blends

I love love love essential oils and my “canon” waterless diffuser! I am starting to discover the essential oil blends for cold time of the year. I am trying out Synergy by Pure Anada I got from Live In The Light and Winter Magic by Atlantic Aromatics from Dutch Health Store (see links below) and I love them. They clean and deodorize the indoor air and are totally natural.

Organic & Raw hot Chocolate

As I mentioned in my last Monthly Musings post, my body started craving hot chocolate lately, but I aim for the best quality of it – organic and raw is best. Added medicinal mushrooms sound like my idea of heaven. I am trying to DIY my own, but nothing worthy of posting just yet.

Don’t forget that chocolate is also good for our skin, I wrote about mixing it with manuka honey to create the best DIY mask (and 12 more!) here. Turns out is it Chocolate Week too – I learned it from Evolve Organic Beauty IG page. Go enter their giveaway too if You are inclined. There are also all sorts of chocolate-y beauty goodies at Dutch Health Store and Live In The Light – I am seriously tempted to get Chocolate Best Skin Ever soon. What? It’s my birthday next month and I shall treat myself 🙂

That’s it for this month when it comes to natural beauty stash/ routine/ products. Thanks for reading, I appreciate You taking Your time to visit my little corner of internet!
