Absolution Sorbet Lipstick in 05 Dusky Rose, Warpaint, Absolution Addiction Face Serum

How are all of You, I hope You are well? Today I wanted to draw your attention to the new(ish) green beauty online shop that might become your go to destination. Jolie in French means pretty, nice, charming, wonderful, beautiful, and other synonyms describing all the different nuances of beauty, so I am loving the name from the start - let me talk a bit about it and there *might* be a discount code for You at the end, you never know πŸ˜‰

The story behind Jolie:

The company was founded by four friends in 2012, and it quickly became a natural cosmetics sensation in Finland. Jolie was born of the need and desire to cherish and inspire a better, healthier, ethical, ecological and more beautiful lifestyle. Jolie wanted to provide selective, 100% pure and effective natural cosmetics in one place.
Currently Jolie is the largest natural cosmetics house in Finland, a pioneer in beauty and well-being that is known for its exceptionally good and uncompromising genuine natural cosmetics. Jolie team values quality and luxury – with a hint of Parisian elegance, and they take care of customers very well - I can attest to that myself. They are happy to listen to your needs, ask a few questions and help you find your perfect products.

The brands they carry are selected through a very strict and sincere selection process. Our test groups have picked only the brands that have proven to be the very best that are 100% pure and safe without any contaminants or harmful ingredients. Our criteria include an official organic cosmetics certification as well as – in true Scandinavian style – the functionality of the products in everyday use: they demand absolute quality, comfort and convenience. 

The selection includes modern, up-to-date natural cosmetics innovations, the best brands and outstanding examples of meticulous and ambitious product development. The products come second to none of the synthetic cosmetics. Instead, they are the best that the field of cosmetics has ever seen: true luxury without harmful effects.

All that sounds like a music to my ears, and I can confirm the team behind Jolie are very nice and customer friendly. Prior to sending me their six best sellers to try, they asked me if I have some specific needs or allergies or other restrictions. So they selected the products suited specifically for my sensitive skin needs, as well sending me Absolution lipstick in Dusky Rose 05 when they heard of my eternal quest in finding "your lips but better" nude lipstick.  So let's see for the individual products, shall we?

Please bear in mind these are first impressions reviews only, if you want me to review any of those products in depth, let me know. And give me six weeks for proper testing - that's what I always do when posting any skincare review. All of the brands and the products are new to me.

Warpaint 100% Natural Teeth Whitener

Warpaint takes a holistic approach to oral health without any chemicals or additives. With carefully selected 100% natural ingredients, Warpaint whitens and polishes teeth, strengthens enamel and detoxifies mouth. Mineral-rich edible calcium bentonite clay remineralises and strengthens teeth. Non-abrasive, very fine activated coconut charcoal helps remove discolouration, stains (coffee, tobacco, tea, etc.) and debris and leave the surface area of the teeth clean. The appearance will be whiter. Organic sweet orange peel (does not contain citric acid) removes stains and strengthens sensitive teeth. Organic lemon myrtle (does not contain citric acid) is a powerful microbial and anti-fungal agent which also contains calmative properties to soothe and relax. Organic peppermint reduces infections and inflammation. Plus, it'll keep you smelling fresh and zesty!

This was an instant favourite! The first pleasant surprise was the deep black colour when I opened the jar, and when I went on to use it, it was a pleasure to use too - just one small dip in the powder provided enough powder to clean my teeth properly, and compared to Holland & Barret own brand teeth whitening powder, which I also happened to own, this didn't stick to my teeth in the slightest and my teeth were proper black! After just two uses my husband asked what I have done to my teeth and told me I look like I have a Hollywood smile, which was a delight to hear! My teeth aren't so white naturally, so I want to move this product in my Holy Grail category in an instant! I know it costs more, but seeing how well it works and how little you need, I am a convert. And this will definitely last you for ages! My other tooth powder will not be repurchased.

All in all, I can say I really enjoyed all of of the products I've got. None of them made my skin react in an adverse way, and you guys know my skin is pretty temperamental at the best of times. Warpaint and the Absolution Addiction Face Serum oil were my instant loves at the first use, but I enjoyed all of the products throughoutly! Jolie team clearly know what they are doing, and I think You should check them out. Website is gorgeous and easy to navigate I should add. Gorgeous array of products and brands like Amala Beauty, May Lindstrom, Estelle & Thild, Kjaer Weiss, Alima Pure, In Fiore, HonorΓ© des PrΓ©s, Kypris, Pai Skincare, Madara, Neal's Yard Remedies, a couple of brands I didn't know, like Mia HΓΆytΓΆ Cosmetics and SA.AL&CO - and then there's Hurraw holding the court for affordable options. 

It wouldn't be a webshop review if I didn't list my wishlist, lol! One of my favourite pastimes is browsing all these gorgeous online shops and adding all of the products I desire to my cart. I won't list all of my wishlist, as we would literally be here all day, just some of them, and my reasons behind the choices.

My Jolie discount code & wishlist - Siam Seas, Blue Cooccon, Evolve Daily Defence Moisture Mist, Kypris SPF

May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon

I really want to compare it to the Mahalo Rare Indigo I own. 

Evolve Daily Defence Moisture Mist

After ignoring the face mists and toners for the last two thousands of years, I am on the quest to try all of them green beauty has to offer and find my perfect one! This one has good ingredients, hyaluronic acid among them, and it promises to shield you from the environment, so needless to say I want one.

Siam seas 

I couldn't even choose one product, all of them, come this way please! 😍

Abel Eau De Parfum Red Santal 

This instantly called my name! Natural perfume are notoriously hard to buy online, but I think I would love the scent of this based on it's description.

Antonym Small Angled Brush 

I have this old no-name small angled brush that I've had for years and years, that's perfect for both eyebrows and winged eye liner, that I am desperate to find a replacement of. Nothing comes close to it, every other small angled brush I've purchased in the recent years don't compare - they are either too big/flimsy/not stiff enough, etc! This seems promising.
And every eye blending brush please!

Kypris Pot of Shade Heliotropic Sunscreen & Primer SPF30

Kypris is one of those lines that are way out of my budget, but I would love to try their primer, which has SPF30 and is a primer too.
