While I do not love cold weather and the early onset of darkness, when it comes to green beauty the pre Christmas time is pretty amazing. Not only are there loads of discounts floating about but there are always some fantastic new product launches and limited edition gift sets. Also a few intriguing green beauty goodies are on the verge of being released. There have been so many things that caught my eye, but I managed to whittle it down to just a few that I am personally most excited about.
Leahlani Skincare are having a complete makeover. If you follow them on social media, you probably have been waiting for this since spring, it looks like we won't have to wait too much longer. Not only is all the packaging getting a face lift, there will be not one but three new products. Two new face masks and a multipurpose balm. I have been waiting to get my hands on this magical balm for oh so long, but now I am absolutely torn because Leahlani's masks tend to be pretty epic. I give up, I have no idea which of the three upcoming launches sound more exciting.
Kari Gran has teamed up with Jolene Hart (the author of "Eat Pretty") to create a limited edition lip colour. It is the most beautiful vibrant pink, and as soon as I saw it my heart was beating a little bit faster. It is already available for purchase, and is even stocked at one of my favourite online boutiques the Choosy Chick (who will be have 15% off the entire store between 27th-30th of November with the code THANKS15). I absolutely love Kari Gran lip whips, the texture is heavenly and this colour in particular is simply stunning.
Itha London seem to have a lot going on. Not only are they working on stunningly beautiful new colours, it also looks like there will be products in tube packaging as well. I have reviewed the line in the past, and I absolutely can not wait for them to release their new goodies. This promises to be seriously good. I am definitely keeping a watchful eye on them.
Terre Verdi is a small UK brand with Italian roots. They already managed to win a number of awards and just recently made a big change with their packaging. Some of the products are also different in their formulations, and they have brought out a number of single oils. Most of the line is certified organic with Cosmos (at the moment only 2 products are not certified). I am particularly excited about the Orange coffee cleansing mask which is not yet available online. I had a play with it at their pop up shop in South Kensington. I thought it sounded really interesting and I will be giving it a test drive shortly. Terra Verdi have a 20% off with the code BLACK20 valid until midnight GMT on Friday 27th of November.
So these are my top current and future launches, however I feel there are a few more that deserve a mention. La Bella figura has just released two beauty creams. Gressa have brought out a gorgeous purple colour. There is a brand new kid on the block, Holistic Green beauty. I am currently testing a couple of products, so you hopefully it won't be too long before a review. Content beauty have released a gorgeous limited edition well being box that would make a fabulous Christmas present (seriously if anyone got this for me I would be bouncing from happiness like a three year old hyped up on sugar). Also while these are not new products they have just now become stocked in UK: Vintner's daughter is available at Naturisimo ( until 1st of December you can enter BLACK15, or BLACK20 if you are spending over a hundried pounds, for some money off ) and Kypris is now available at Selfridges.
What products are you waiting for to get released? Any exciting new launches that you have come across? Let me know in the comments.
