Green Beauty Haul/New In

7 Dec 2016

I've got a little haul for you all today and I'm also throwing in a couple of bits that were sent/given to me too to make it a little more interesting!
As I have a lot of skincare, on Black Friday I resisted buying loads more however I was seriously tempted by Skin & Tonic's 20% off code as they'd just released some brand new products. I picked up their new Detox Mask which is made with matcha green tea and green clay and is especially for oily/combination skin. As a special "Green Friday" deal I got 20% off, a sample of the mask too along with a seed Christmas tree that when you plant will grow flowers and S&T are also planting a tree for every order they had that weekend.

Clean Cult was this weekend and it was such a fab event! I had so much fun catching up with the green beauty girlies, meeting new people and seeing all of the brands who were there; Therapi Honey Skincare, Mallow + White, Green People, Isla Apothecary, Clean Beauty Co and Nom Nom. I picked up an Immortelle Scar & Blemish Oil from Isla Apothecary as you can never have too many spot treatment products IMO, and also the Well Earned Soak bath salts from Clean Beauty Co which are actually a Christmas present for someone so fingers crossed they don't read this post! They're scented with lavender & frankincense and smell so freaking good. Also...isn't their new packaging just gorgeous?!

Whilst I was at Clean Cult, Kelly from Itha London came to say hello and also gave me one of her newly packaged lip glows which was a lovely surprise & gift from her. I got the shade Rose Kiss so I'm looking forward to trying that out.

A couple of weeks ago I got a message from Schmidt's in America asking if I'd like to try their new Spruce & Spice deodorant and as they're one of my favourite natural deodorant brands I couldn't say no! This new deodorant literally smells like Christmas, it's amazing!

Green Beauty Empties

5 Dec 2016

Time for another empties post of some natural & organic skincare and beauty products I've used up over the last couple of months. 
Supernatural Beauty Redemption Oil
I got a sample of this at Clean Cult back in July and fell in love with it after the first use. I'll definitely be re-purchasing this oil very, very soon!

Soley Lift & Glow Oil
I got this travel-size oil at the Natural Products Show back in April but didn't open it until a couple of months ago. I did really like this oil and would definitely say it was high up on one's I like with...Angela Langford Bloom & Glow! This is the second one I've used up and I'd definitely buy another but I am going to start narrowing down my favourites to try & keep my skin in the best condition it can be - rather than trying loads every couple of months!

Schmidt's Lavender & Sage Deodorant
This deodorant is one of the best natural ones I've tried. Definitely in stick form though - the pots are too hard to scoop out, especially when the weather's cold! After using this for a couple of weeks in a row, I do experience some bad irritation which can be quite painful so I use something else until my skin is less inflamed but it definitely keeps me smelling fine all day!

Sappho Organic Foundation
Love this stuff. Sappho have just had a re-brand with new packaging and formulas/products so I've got their new foundation on the way from Nuciya and I'm looking forward to trying it out. The new Paradigm offers a more full coverage but the normal one is still my holy grail foundation.

Indie Lee Co-Q10 Toner
Love this toner! I tried a full size last Summer and this was just a sample that came with an order from A Beautiful World. Definitely one that works well in Summer as it's so refreshing & it smells amazing.

Therapi Lemon Myrtle Toner
Lovely refreshing toner that I use when my skin needs a bit of clearing if I have any spots! This is a sample size that's soon going to be available in gift sets from Therapi which look amaze!

OSKIA Renaissance Cleansing Gel
I used to absolutely adore this cleanser, but this time I tried it I didn't fall in love as much and I'm not sure why! I think I'd definitely try it again but maybe I just have a few favourite cleansers now & this didn't quite live up to them?

Mallow + White Blossom Balm
I've gone through a whole jar of this beauty! It's my collaboration product with Joanna, founder of M+W so of course, I'd definitely repurchase again. It's a fave!

Natural Beauty Boxes

23 Nov 2016

There are a few natural and organic beauty boxes on the market right now and a couple I've tried recently are from Love Lula and Vertue so I thought I'd share my thoughts on both in this post.
Natural & Organic Beauty Box

Love Lula have a monthly subscription box that comes full of natural and organic skincare products for just £12.50. The value of the box is a lot higher and it's a great place to start if you're new to green beauty. The products inside are from brands that Love Lula stock so there will be repeat brands every few months or so but they do have a good range of products to offer. You also get a discount code for 20% off the brands featured in each box which works well if you want to go ahead and purchase a full size product that you may have liked in the box.  

Featured in November's Beauty Box are products from Madara, Ooh! Oils of Heaven, MOA, PHB and Humble Natural Beauty worth a total value of £50.

Vertue Box are a brand new box subscription who not only include natural beauty products in their boxes, but also health products. Created by a make-up artist wife and personal trainer husband, the two have merged health & beauty to create their box which aims to make you look and feel good. Vertue have a higher retail price of £30 however there is a slightly more luxe feel to it than the Love Lula box.

October's box featured products from Skin & Tonic, Balance Me, Odylique, Raw Gaia and Aduna although there were quite a few samples and travel sized products rather than full sizes which was a bit disappointing. I emailed founder Laila and discovered they did unfortunately have a couple of issues with the October box but going forward, there will be 5-7 full size products included in the box and I think this is definitely one to keep an eye on and consider subscribing to.
