Hello greenies! It’s that time again – time for a mega discount post for this black Green Friday edition! This week has been pretty brutal as far as being all over the place and being at 5 different places all at once: busy as heck and equally tired. By the time this post goes live, I’m gonna be already giggling at heart-shaped fluffy tails of deer – escaping into the forest. I need some time off, desperately!

This week has been busy on this lil’ blog of mine; I posted the first impressions of Love Lula’s November Beauty Box as well as a whooper of a Green Beauty Holiday Gift Guide with over 100 recommendations – this year has been the fourth annual holiday gift guide on my blog already! You can easily use the gift guide with today’s discount post and use the opportunity of all the big deals within green beauty, but I would like to point out something: just because there’s a great deal, a big discount – don’t get swayed into buying things you don’t need, you may wish to have but would buy because of the discount. If you still have enough of a, say, facial oil, there’s no need to buy 3 new just because they are now available with a big discount. If you’ve had a few products on your wishlist for a long time now and would feel better had you not paid the full price – then go ahead. If you need to stock up on, say, shampoo – go ahead. Just make sure you do not get sucked in by what you need in your life and having 30 highlighters as your life goal. Life goals and what we truly need in our lives have nothing to do with money and whether we have as much products as bought and paid “influencers” on Instagram would want you to believe. At the same time, taking advantage of a a great deal is perfectly fine; such deals should be used for you to save some money and not for you to feel bad for your purchases the next day. Being green also means not falling for the consumerism. And you don’t have to be an American to be thankful and grateful, every day for the matter, for all the things no money can buy: hope, faith and love. But – for 10 highlighters?

But yeah, the offers below are caarayzee!

Nov 222017
 

A gloomy, grey and cold has this November been so far, but when you receive a much anticipated Love Lula Beauty Box … This month’s beauty box contains hair care, skincare and makeup products – and a total worth of it is £60!

As preciously mentioned, Love Lula’s Beauty Box does not only fall under a great deal for containing products (many of them full-sized, mind you) worth up to £60, for example, but because you can get it for around £13-£14 for a yearly subscription as well as 20% discount for all the brands in a current Beauty Box . Well, it’s the Holiday season, right, so now Love Lula has an additional 20% discount on a yearly subscription – and that, I think, is a major great deal!

Below you’ll find my first impressions of this month’s Beauty Box products; most of these products will receive a full review once thoroughly tested, and I am planning on buying a full size of one of the products… well, 3 out of 5 products are already full size as it is – great deal, indeed!

So, what’s in November’s Beauty Box?

 

Love Lula Beauty Box November 2017

 

Inika Organic Lipstick in Naked Kiss (4,2g/£18). Inika recently re-launched their products and I’ve been testing some of their products for the reviews to come soon. The packaging is really elegant. The Naked Lips lipstick is a shimmering mauve color – quite pigmented, so if you prefer a more subtle color, I’d suggest using a lipbalm and a more light-handed application. They staying power of this lipstick is pretty strong and does not run. With shea butter and jojoba oil, this lipstick is very nourishing and softening, while also feeling very light on the lips. While I prefer matte lipsticks, this lipstick is nonetheless very pretty and elegant – especially for evening, but as mentioned, you can achieve a natural look by light application as well as by using lipbalm as well. I’m having two other Inika lipsticks on my wishlist: Honeysuckle and Nude Pink but above all – Inika’s liptints caught my eye!

Madara Smart Eye Rescue Cream (15ml/£31). I remember well over 10 years ago I had this eye cream from a German natural brand Alverde, which had a velvety soft finish and would have a lift effect – basically would smooth out fine lines while giving a rested and hydrated look. This Madara eye cream comes very close, if not even surpassing, those effects. A while ago I reviewed another Madara eye cream (read all my Madara reviews), and while that one is excellent for night routine, the Madara Smart Eye Rescue Cream is excellent for day wear, especially under makeup. It acts almost like a concealer – it smooths the fine lines, giving a smooth velvety look. Very impressive, and given how much I like the previously reviewed Madara eye cream, I would have, sooner rather than later, get this one as well – had it not arrive in my Beauty Box. I have to point out another aspect – the scent – I am really liking it! it’s so Worth to mention – just this eye cream alone is over two times the cost of the whole Beauty Box. Naturally, this is only my first impressions look into this cream – it will receive a full and detailed review after I thoroughly test it, but even after a few applications, I can say we’re talking about a great skincare product!

Laidbare Working 9 to 5 Anti-aging Cream (50ml/£7,99). Laidbare is know for their affordable products (read my previous reviews of Laidbare products) and this one is no different – a whooping 50ml cream for only £7,99. The texture of this cream is very light and almost like a runny lotion. It has a very pleasant scent, with the scent of roses being prevailing – yes! It absorbs very quickly and would be suitable for all skin types – even oily ones. Excellent for a quick morning routine, while also being sure your skin will receive hydration. A little of this cream goes a long way, so the generous tube of 50ml will last you the whole winter! This cream will receive its full review once I thoroughly test it.

REN Perfect Canvas – Skin Enhancing Priming Serum (2ml sample). I’ve been having this priming serum from REN on my wishlist ever since it came out not too long ago. A natural serum, which also works as a makeup primer? Yes, please. This priming serum is without silicones, so that’s a major plus. Yes, this is a tiny sample of only 2ml, and I may have gone a bit overboard with the amount I used – the thing is, this priming serum just – disappears into your skin, so I thought I may not be using enough of it. It makes the skin look and feel smoothed out and tightened. I did play a bit with adding it to my other cream primer, as well as to moisturizer before applying makeup, and I plan on mixing it with my BB creams and foundations as well. I am really liking what I’ve seen so far, but for a thorough review – especially since this priming serum is more on an expensive side – you’ll have to wait until I try, test and review a full sized product; I’ve been planning on getting it anyway, so when the Love Lula reminded me about it with its beauty box – and I have now finally given it a small test, this REN priming serum jumped higher on my wishlist.

The Seaweed Bath Co. Shampoo and Conditioner (samples) – I do use quite a lot of shampoo and conditioner when washing my hair, so these two sample sachets were not enough to be adequately used, but here’s what I can tell you: the ones I got are eucalyptus and peppermint and both the shampoo and conditioner are quite – minty and refreshing. I dig the retro look of packaging/typography. But for a more detailed review, I’d need a bit more product to give it a good try.

* * *

Found any new favorite products from this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box? Quite an impressive selection of products for such a low cost, right? Well – it gets even better, as mentioned earlier – now the Love Lula Beauty Box comes at your door for an even additional 20% less with a yearly subscription!

Hello greenies! Every time I sit down to write my weekly edition of discounts and free gifts I realize how quickly a week flies by. Meh, it’s still gloomy and what not, and trying to find a suitable light for taking photos for reviews is like trying to take a photo in a cave. But nonetheless, in case you’ve missed, I reviewed PHB Ethical Beauty makeup this week – a mascara, an eyeliner and an eye shadow.

Just got my November Love Lula Beauty Box today – expect my first impressions post of it early next week! Speaking of Love Lula Beauty Box – I’ve been saying for a long time now how Love Lula Beauty Boxes are very affordable, on its own, but especially given how many great products you get in every beauty box – and if that did not already fall under a great deal – Love Lula has now taken it on another level and is offering an additional up to 20% off on their Beauty Box subscription; when you think, you can get the beauty box for around 13€ per month now! Wow, right?

Just saw that now even my ponderings about the mentioned beauty box are not safe from thieves… There’s gotta be something original some of these bloggers could come up with… Gotta be.

So, in addition to my first impressions on Love Lula Beauty Box, I’ve been preparing my annual Green Beauty Christmas Gift Guide – so make sure you check back! And yes – on Friday, you can expect a crazy Green Friday discounts and free green beauty gifts edition as well! I’ll do my very best to squeeze in another review as well. Yep, it’s gonna off the hook on my blog! But for now, check all the great offers, sales, discounts, free gifts and what now below!

PHB Ethical Beauty Mascara unexpectedly gives volume, length and thickness – all in one, the eyeliner works well as a creamy eye shadow, while the eye shadow, with barely any fallout, offers a nicely pigmented color.

While I had already posted my first impressions on PHB Ethical Beauty makeup goodies which came in my various Love Lula Beauty Boxes, I thought, given how well they perform, I should write a full review of all the above mentioned makeup products. PHB Ethical Beauty has quite a selection of makeup (and skincare, of course) products, and I have to say I am quite impressed with their makeup – mostly – mascara. Another good side of this brand is the fact the products are not very expensive.

PHB Ethical Beauty Mascara (10ml)

PHB Ethical Beauty Mascara

I got this mascara in my July Love Lula Beauty Box, and after nearly 4 months of using it, I can say I am much impressed with its performance, but a bit less with two ingredients (one, in particular).

The PHB Ethical Beauty Mascara is an all-in-one mascara: it is volumising, thickening and lengthening mascara – truly. Just with one layer you get beautifully separated and lashes. You can work the mascara on the first layer, to achieve length and volume, or wait just a bit, and go for another layer. Aside from rich black color, the lashes are full of volume. The mascara does not smudge and lasts basically all day, but it does lose some definition during the course of time. It’s a bit of a water-proof as well, but at the same time, comes off with no problems. The wand is pretty big and easy to use. I have no eye irritation to report.

The formulation of this mascara is quite simple, with ingredients you would expect in a natural mascara – various natural waxes and olive oil. But there are two ingredients of which I am not fond of – one is a preservative Phenoxyethanol, the other a bit more serious in regards to being toxic – Aminomethyl Popandiol. This ingredient, while being a pH adjuster, can be toxic and potentially carcinogenic in higher quantities, but I have to point out a cumulative issue.

The PHB Ethical Beauty Mascara, aside from that one ingredient, is a really great mascara – it covers many needs one looks for in mascaras, but usually we have to buy several to achieve the same look – it separates the lashes, it gives volume and length as well as nicely pigmented black color. The price is not too steep, though it may not be as affordable as some other mascaras – around 18€ for 10ml. There’s quite a lot of product in the tube and the mascara is very wet, so this mascara can be stretched over 3 months, which is a recommended limit for the life span of mascara.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Oryza Sativa Wax (Rice Bran Wax), Olea Europea fruit oil (Olive Oil), Vegetable Source Cetyl Alcohol (Coconut), Coernica Cerifera (Carnauba Wax), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla Wax), Vegetable Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Acacia Gum, Black Iron oxide (CI 77499), Aminomethyl Popandiol (Ph Adjuster), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative)

PHB Ethical Beauty Eyeliner

PHB Ethical Beauty Eyeliner

The eyeliner came in my August Love Lula Beauty Box and I’ve been using it quite frequently. It’s a very creamy eyeliner and since I don’t use eyeliners in my water line (my eyes are too sensitive and I do not like that look), I prefer using them on my lids – mostly to smudge them, and this eyeliner looks really nice on my eyes. I’ve been actually using it as a cream eye shadow the most, or in combination with brown eye shadows. The PHB Ethical Beauty eyeliner is very soft, its application is easy and fast and works really well when I want to achieve a natural look and don’t have much time (which is – most of the time). Its staying power is around 4 hours, but that’s not the problem, as it can be re-applied really fast. The color is a nice, natural earthly brown, so all those, with brown and hazel eyes – this eyeliner would look really nice on you.

The price of this eyeliner falls somewhere in between – with approximately 12€ for 4g. Given the eyeliner is soft, you may use it faster than those eyeliners, which are of a harder consistency, but that doesn’t mean you’re gonna go through it in a month, of course not.

Ingredients: Octydodecyl Srearoyl Stearate,C10-18 Triglycerides, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) oil, Copernicia Cerifera Cera, Olus Oil, Candelilla Cera, Mica, Sesamum Indicum Oil, Polyglycceryl-3 Diisostearate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sorbic Acid, C.I. 77499, C.I. 77891

PHB Ethical Beauty Eye Shadow (in Almond)

PHB Ethical Beauty Eye Shadow

This eye shadow came in my October Love Lula Beauty Box and wrote a short first impression: This eye shadow, even though its name is almond, is actually a goldish champagne. It’s quite pigmented, there’s barely any fall-out and it’s finely milled and soft. Great color to be used as a base eye shadow or just in the corner of the eyes, and, if you’re inclined, which I am not – bellow the eye brows. Given this is a natural eye shadow, a pressed mineral eye shadow, you should not expect it to last as long as conventional – it lasts for about 4-5 hours. Now I’m curious about a few other PHB Beauty eye shadows.

Ingredients: Mica, Iron Oxides, Calcium Carbonate, Caprylic Triglyceride, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Organic Jojoba), Ultramarines, Titanium Dioxide

My final word?

PHB Ethical Beauty Mascara, Eyeliner and Eye Shadow Review

Despite that one ingredient, the PHB Ethical Beauty mascara gets a thumbs up from me: its performance is that good. I’m also like both the eyeliner and the eye shadow and will check more of their eye shadows in the future. Now, as far as the price goes – all the above mentioned makeup products might fall somewhere in between, though at the same time – it could be argued they may be a bit over-priced – eye shadow and eye liner in particular. Mascara? Again, its performance makes for an excuse to spend 18€ on it. Now, here’s the catch! Love Lula has a limited-time offer of the mascara and eyeliner duo at 50% off – that is for both the mascara and eyeliner you pay less than just for mascara alone. I’d call that a great deal, wouldn’t you?
