The Green Machines

green beauty products garnier fructis dr bronners magic soap dkny be delicious pixi glow tonic irigins drink up intensive essie absolutely shore boots essentials cucumber ribbands

After my previous pink and blue posts we are now moving onto green! I’m so unimaginative, I hate coming up with the titles for these posts! Anyway, here are my favourite green (or packaged green) products!

I have been using this shampoo for years now and when I just want a real good clean it’s still what I reach for! It lathers up well (full of sulphates!) and smells lovely and my hair always feels fresh and clean after using it! I always have one of these to hand! The best thing about it is its £1 in Poundland!

I’ve had this bottle for about two years and it’s still going strong! This is my favourite thing to wash my brushes with (I used to use shampoo) as it’s so lightweight, lathers up well and gives such a good deep clean! It’s a very watery consistency so some product does go down the plughole when you pour it out if you’re not careful but the bottle it massive and it’s lasted me ages!

While I wouldn’t recommend this as an eye makeup remover if you wear waterproof mascara or heavy eye makeup, it works so well for me as a morning eye cleanse and takes off anything I’ve missed the night before while being cooling and refreshing! It’s so affordable too and really gentle!

I got this in a set of masks last Christmas I think and it’s lasted me such a long time! I use this at least once a week when my skin is feeling a little dehydrated and it feels so luxurious! It works overnight to replace moisture and I find I always wake up with plumper hydrated skin! I’m nearly finished this tube and definitely will replace it! It also smells amazing!  

I’ve gone through a few of these in the past then didn’t bother repurchasing as I couldn’t see much of a difference in my skin. I still don’t, but I may have needed to reach a certain amount to get a free gift or something so of course I filled my basket! I usually use this in the morning if I’m not using Serozinc and I just find it to be a really refreshing step in my routine that helps to wake me up. I love the smell (main ingredients include grape, orange blossom, rose, mint and rosemary) so although it’s not a necessity for me it’s still a product I enjoy using!

This has to be my favourite toner ever! It’s an exfoliating toner that dissolves dead skin cells helping to reveal fresh cells underneath. I find it really gentle and use it daily and its one of very few products that I see a noticeable difference in my skin with! It looks a lot more even, clearer and smoother and I couldn’t be without this now! It also featured in a repurchases post here!

essie absolutely shore swatch pastel green nail polish

Essie Absolutely Shore
Another perfect pastel shade from Essie and one of the the only green shades I have! I actually think this is now discontinued L but it’s described as a “sea foam green with a cream finish”. Again, it’s another nail polish I like to wear when I have a tan as it just makes it look 10x better!

I have become addicted to these bobbles since I first got my hands on them last year! I actually thought these were just Popbands which I also talked about here but they are by a brand called Ribband and I got them in a Selfridges Beauty Box last summer! Just like Popbands they keep my keep my hair secure but don’t pull it too tight and they don’t leave kinks!

This is probably my favourite fragrance and I love layering up the body lotion and the perfume! I actually prefer the original but it was too difficult to photograph so I gave up! The skin hydrating version is meant to moisturise, smooth and brighten the skin which to be honest I haven’t noticed. I do however notice how light and fresh the scent is and it’s also a bit more affordable than the original Be Delicious so handy for popping in your bag for top ups! I think all three versions of the fragrance have featured in my empties over the last year too!

Do you have any of the products I talked about? What’s yours favourite green beauty product?

  1. I LOVE that nail varnish! So cute!. Dr Bonnars is my favourite for cleaning brushes too, but it makes me break out so badly :( Took me ages to realise it was that, I was blaming everthing else lol

    And I so love DKNY scents too, I am so tempted by the new summer neon ones, they look amazing!

  3. Great picks Danielle! Garnier shampoos are my faves! I've been wanting to try the Glow Tonic for a while now - it sounds fantastic! And I'm been obsessed with Origins skincare lately - I'll need to give that mask a try!

  6. That is such gorgeous shade and I wonder why Essie discontinued it? And gosh, I completely forgot about DKNY Be Delicious! It's such a fresh scent and I remember loving it so much years ago.

  7. I love both the Origins drink up intensive and the Pixi glow tonic! I wasn't going to get the glow tonic at first but they had too much of a good offer to miss out, and just like you after a few days of using it I could already see a difference :)

  33. I'm desperate to try out Pixi's Glow Tonic! Everyone keeps saying how amazing it is and my skin's just been looking so dull lately. I'm so sad that Absolutely Shore has been discontinued, it's such a pretty colour and definitely one I haven't seen that often! I'm going to go on a hunt for a dupe! :)

I am a huge fan of the Pixi Glow Tonic too, I used it up so quickly. I need to repurchase another bottle asap. I love the DKNY Be Delicious scent too, its so crisp and fresh. Also the fact that it smells like a real apple as well is just amazing.:D
