The Green Beauty news and releases #12

    These green beauty news posts have become some of my favourites to write even if they are a little labour intensive so I hope that people are still enjoying them. There are lot's of great releases and a couple of new brands that popped up on my radar so I am going to get stuck right in!

Odylique by Essential care have a shiny new website and some shiny new products! The delicious sounding Lemon Butter hand smoothie and Tropical bliss body silk, I would definitely recommend you pair these with the gorgeous Coconut candy scrub for a blissful pamper session! Both products are packed full of great ingredients and are Soil Association certified organic, perfect additions to the Xmas wish list! 




 Green People's age defy + range goes from strength to strength and they have added the Purify and hydrate cleanser to the line up with Hibiscus and a blend of essential oils to give glow such as pomegranate which is a star skincare ingredient and cranberry to fight free radical damage. Through November orders over £20 receive a mystery free gift too!




Tata Harper has released not one but two cleansers and made their already successful beautifying face oil available in a larger 30 ml size with a dropper bottle. Anyone else lust after these green bottles.. I can't be the only one!




Another favourite here is Herbfarmacy and they have launched a new Hydration Serum which I am testing out and is providing much need moisture to my parched winter skin, the new serum retails for £24.50 and has one of the signature herbs from the range which is marshmallow. If you purchase now you get some free organic tea from herbs grown on their very own farm which is a lovely treat. 




Inner Soul organics nordic berry bliss salve launches Tuesday the 4th of November on Love Lula and retails for £25.50, I have a small sample and it is a sumptuous thick cream bordering on a balmy texture with the fantastic fresh nordic scent that is also in the rest of the range which I reviewed here, very festive and perfect for this winter season. 




British brand Lyonsleaf is a firm favourite here at Ana goes green and they have some gorgeous gift sets available as well as the new Goats milk, manuka honey and calendula soap I mentioned in my previous post. I am coveting the complete skincare gift set pictured below which is a steal at only £27.49 and until November the 21st there is a discount code which will get you 20% off any orders over £50, perfect for stocking up on early presents or simply treating yourself! Enter code: GIFT20 at checkout. 



A brand that is just two months old but has already won two awards, incredible but true SkinLix has joined the green beauty world with some lovely organic argan oil based products, I loved the Orange and Lemon body scrub and argan oil and I am looking forward to seeing how the company progresses! My readers can get 10% off purchases with the code BLOG at checkout, enjoy! 





Another new brand to pop up in October is The Naked Skincare company with a capsule collection of products with simple ingredients lists, some gorgeous sounding balms and an oil cleanser at prices that won't break the bank, one to watch I think. 




Green Beauty heavyweight Ilia have released two new face products a concealer and tinted moisturiser and two new lipsticks. I was disappointed to see the tinted moisturiser includes dimethicone but can't grumble at the rest of the formula, it didn't seem to stop the hype around these being huge either, I am reserving final judgement until I have tried a sample but good on Ilia for having shades that cater to a wider variety of skin tones than just beige for a change! I didn't think I needed the new lipstick releases and then I saw how gorgeous Strike it up is, hello party season lip! The new products are widely available from most Ilia stockists. 



I am loving the look of these Sewlomax make up bags which are hand stitched and can be personalised, they are designed by Emma Lomax in London and there are plenty of styles and sizes to choose from, perfect for make up lovers everywhere and for storing your gorgeous green make up purchases!




Combining two of my favourite things Aromatherapy and chocolate is skincare brand JustBe Botanicals, I love founder Gail's skincare and the chocolate combinations sound divine and would be a fun and different stocking filler or Christmas gift too. You can find the full range here.

  2. I've tried samples of the Ilia releases and Strike it up is just gorgeous. Red is way out there for me but it's just too pretty not to buy! The tinted moisturisers I'm not sure about and the concealers look really dark - waiting for some better sunshine to do some under eye testing :) I have the herbfarmacy serum too, but unfortunately it has potassium sorbate in which causes issues for me. I really enjoy these round-ups, thanks for making taking the time x

    1. Yes strike it up really is gorgeous! I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the rest of the Ilia releases, shame about the Herbfarmacy serum, it is an ingredient so many organic brands use as an alternative to parabens and Phenoxyethanol Xx

  6. I recently just tried my first Ilia Lip Conditioner and I have to say that I am completely sold! As a first insight into a brand it was a very good one and I am keen to try more. I love the look of the two new lipstick shades, although I must admit that I think I may go for one of the "old" shades - Neon Angel. I loved this overview post as it pointed me in the direction of other brands and products that I need to keep my eyes open for. I've seen Lyonsleaf on Evelyn's blog and she's raved about their products - I think that may be one of the next brands I check out :) xx
