Green Beauty Haul feat. Odylique, Madara, Pai, Handmade Naturals, Evolve
I wanted to show that I really do love the products I've been writing about for the past six years. You may notice that majority of these products are not new to my website. Before Christmas I was running low on skincare so I decided to make a list for anyone who didn't know what to buy me. It's worthwhile because it eliminates getting unwanted gifts. Anything I didn't receive I just bought for myself.

Everyday Minerals Semi Matte Base (Rosy Beige 3C) - I've been buying and using this foundation since 2013 yet I don't think I've written a full review. I've never found another mineral foundation that sits as nicely on my skin or matches as well with my skin tones. I am finding it harder to get hold of in the UK so I've been ordering direct from USA. 

Evolve Organic Beauty Daily Renew Face Cream - my favourite cream to get me through winter, super rich with an amazing natural fragrance so no worries about my issues with essential oil allergens. I mainly use in the mornings but you can also use as a night cream.

Handmade Naturals Face Cleansing Oil - I've been using this oil on and off for the past six years. It is made from Japanese Camellia, Rice Bran, Coconut oil and Monoi de Tahiti oil, it naturally smells amazing and no essential oils to worry about. I only wish I could buy it in larger quantity. In the mornings I enjoy using a cream cleanser so I picked up the Plum & Avocado face cleanser (unscented). Plum Kernel oil is one of my favourite ingredients and it gives a wonderful natural fragrance reminiscent of marzipan which I adore.

Pink Clay Konjac Sponge (Body) - It's not pictured here as it was soggy in my shower at the time. I first introduced the face sponges in 2011 and some years later I started using the body version. I adore the softness of the sponge and I can “scrub” across my eczema patches without causing further irritation. It's not pictured here as it was soggy in m shower at the time. 

Odylique Gentle Herb Shampoo - I think I've been using this shampoo since 2013. I have experimented over the years with other brands but nothing matches up. Gentle Herb Shampoo honestly changed my life, I was battling eczema and scalp sensitivity but this changed everything for me. I also have a 500ml bottle waiting to be opened, the smaller one pictured above was a Christmas gift.

Madara Colour & Shine Conditioner - this conditioner came into my life last year and I went on to purchase a few times. It replaced a holy grail product which started to cause me scalp problems. It will be staying for the foreseeable future.

Madara Moon Flower Tinting Fluid - I've lost count how many times I've replaced this, I use it daily. It provides an extra layer of moisture which helps combat dryness and evens out my skin tone. In the summer I will wear it alone but I often top it up with my Everyday Minerals Foundation.

Pai Fragonia & Seabuckthorn Instant Hand Therapy Cream - this came into my life in 2013 and I've been using it ever since. I'm happy with the way my skin responds to this hand cream as it keeps dryness at bay and feels luxurious without stickiness. 

John Masters Organic Bare Unscented Body Wash - I discovered this shower gel last year and have been through a couple of bottles. Sadly the new bottle has different ingredients to my last one so I don't think I will be repurchasing. Nothing overly dreadful has gone into the new formula but there is a couple linked to contact dermatitis so I'm cautious due to my skin problems. Up until Christmas I saw myself buying this shower gel for the foreseeable future.

Are any of my favourite products also ones which you enjoy using?
