Natural & Organic Empties - March & February 2018

Hi Lovelies,

Welcome back! And if you are new here, welcome 💕💕💕

green life in dublin
Natural and organic empties

How are all of you? I hope you are well?
Due to health struggles and generally feeling down, I will keep this post short if that's ok with you? I will touch on what products I will repurchase without going into too much details and ingredients, I usually like to do that, but not today. Empties posts feels more and more like a chore, and I have to force myself to do them, so not too sure how long I will keep them going on - I have no joyous feeling like I have writing all my other posts. But at the same time I feel it is important to show consistency, it is important for my readers to see that the products I use and review are the same products. So let's jump in, shall we?

By the way, products pictured are March Empties only, I have deleted the picture from February by accident.

March Empties:

Skin & Tonic Calm Clean for dry /sensitive skin
Was lovely to use, but due to owning too much products, not getting it anytime soon

Comvita Olive Leaf Extract 
Couldn't stomach the taste (foul) so will look into capsules next

Fruu Lip Balm
Will repurchase if I will see it online somewhere 

100%Pure Caffeine Sheet Mask
A pure gold, makes your skin red carpet ready. Hit search button for a review and a tip on how to last it 3x longer. Will repurchase.

Cordyceps by Terra Nova
A winner in my eyes, and constant repurchase from now on come winters - this boosted my immune system so much that I didn't get sick! I used to get sick 8 times before.

Ere Perez Concealer duo in Light
I have a review of this, and will get it again. For now I repurchased Hynt Beauty Duet Perfecting concealer, which I also have a review on - it is my Holy Grail and I missed not having it. Have my eyes on Hiro Space Balms too. We will see.

Inika Long Lash Mascara
Amazing product, and that is all I use for more than 6 months! Due a review, and I repurchased it already.

The last one from the stash I've squirreled for winter, but I think I need a couple of more for spring too. 

Look for my Top Three Natural Products post where I talk more in detail about it, but let me just say I never want to be without it! 

Sante Myrrh Tootpaste
This was only 3eu, which was a nice change for me - here in Ireland we pay around 8 and more for any kind of natural toothpastes. Having said that, this had too much of glycerine for me, I could really feel that coating in my mouth and had "furry" teeth in the mornings, so not repurchasing. Glad I had a chance to try it though.

Acure Smooth Shampoo
I was so excited to try it, thinking it would make a cheaper alternative to my beloved (but pricy) Rahua Voluminous Shampoo, but it was not meant to be - it gave me dandruff. Not a shortfall of the product, as 99% of shampoos do that. My family have finished it and asked for more. Amazing, they said.

Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Shower Gel
Amazing product, I love NYR shower gels - they last for months! And there's four of us! I would like to not repurchase, as I am keen to use soaps only, due to wanting to go zero waste, but my family are putting up a good fight. So we will see. A lot of NYR products are housed in glass, but not this one sadly.

February Empties:

Sand & Fog Goji Berry candle
Came from TKMaxx, the brand isn't available to me otherwise, so not going out 
of my way to repurchase

Mahalo Rare Indigo Balm
Ammmaaazing! Holy Grail for my senstive skin, have another jar already

Eco Body Wash with Jasmine, Lemon & Patchouli 
TKMaxx purchase again - if I will see it there again, getting it

Calia Moisturising Shampoo
Mr. Green Life In Dublin finished it before I got a chance to
reach for it for a review, so I made him to buy ALL of their shampoos!
The boy had to learn his lesson, no?

Inner Senses Awakening Meditative Oil 
I don't think I will be able to live without this again! Repurchased already.
 Due a review soon. Just got their Sensual and Vitality body oils.

John Masters Organics Spearmint Shampoo & Citrus Detangler
Bought this before JMO sold out, so therefore it is old. Can't recommend 
this brand due to changing formulations for the worse.

Wabi-Sabi Botanicals Budhi Awaken Eye Nectar 
Loved this eye oil for a year and was going to put a review of four of their products
I own. But guess what? They discontinued everything and came out with a set of 
brand new products - formulations, packaging, everything! I mean, huh?

Greenfrog Soap berry Body Wash
Really natural wash I enjoy and use on the kids

Cliff House Organics soap x2
I like my Dudu Osun soaps better, sorry

Jack & Jill Strawberry Toothpaste 
Constant repurchase

Loved the fact it's organic, will looks into repurchasing come winter. For now, Mahalo 
Rare Indigo is it for me

Again, a repurchase on the repeat.

That's it for today. What have you used up and repurchased recently, please share?

Lots of Love,

  1. some of my favourites here! totally agree about JMO :( it is such a shame as they made my favourite shampoo until they sold out. I just received my first Inner Senses oil and I can't wait to use it after yoga tomorrow! and now I have a few new brands and products to check out too
