Wherefore Art Thou Organic Wednesday?

A few people have been wondering where Organic Wednesday is … well, it’s gone walkabout!  I was too ill to post much last week, which is why it didn’t happen then, but don’t worry! It is coming back, just not today, sorry! That is because I’m moving my organic slot to Saturdays from now on (for reasons far too boring to go into here), and […]

Organic Wednesday – Jurlique

I first discovered Jurlique about ten years ago, after getting myself a nasty bruise whilst on a trip to Brisbane.  My host smothered the affected area with their arnica cream, and I’ve been interested in the brand ever since.  Once exceptionally difficult to find in the UK, their products are becoming easier to track down over here these days, which is a good thing as […]

Organic Wednesday: Jonathan Ward Candles

There are few things more surreal than dragging the rugby-loving, cider-drinking, not-interested-in-male-grooming, will-only-get-his-hair-cut-when-ordered-to, shouldn’t-be-reading-this Mr Lippie along to a candle viewing and scent testing session, and then watching him take over the proceedings to the extent that the Official Lippie (me) can’t actually get a word in edgeways! It might have happened because Jonathan Ward’s candles are truly things of beauty, and it was a […]

Organic Wednesday – Organic Surge, the return

I’m delighted that another of my very favourite bloggers, Helen from the lovely Just Nice Things site has offered to guest blog for me this week. If you’re interested in nails – and other cosmetics! – then you simply have to make Just Nice Things a port of call on the internets!  Helen won my first ever blog giveaway way back in November last year, […]

Organic Wednesday – Neal’s Yard Wild Rose Elixir

I’ve mentioned Neal’s Yard a few times before, I’m a big fan of their distinctively packaged, gloriously scented and usually highly natural products.  When the chance came up to take a look at their new Beauty Elixir, which is part of their Wild Rose range – I already own the balm, and the facial oil in this range too! – I jumped at it.  Here’s what […]

Organic Wednesday – NEOM Candles

Candles.  Oh, how I love candles!  Jonathan Ward, Kenneth Turner and now NEOM, I love them all …  was especially delighted when I found out this week that NEOM are expanding their fragrance library to 12 this March with the addition of two new varieties of candle. Serenity, which has hints of vanilla and sandalwood and about which NEOM say: “For the ultimate piece of […]

Organic Wednesday – Dr Bronner vs Method

Doing things slightly differently this week – haven’t done a side by side comparison for a while, so I thought I’d do one now. I’ve mentioned how much I like Dr Bronner soaps before and they have a new one available from their Shikakai range, and in this trial, I’m using the peppermint version – I’m a sucker for peppermint: And in the clear corner, […]

Organic Wednesday – Balm Balm

My love for lipbalms is well known worldwide (seriously, I don’t think Badger have forgiven me for kicking up such a fuss about Chai Rose yet, but they’re still lovely people! And lovely balms too), so I thought I might be forgiven for talking about yet another one that I really like. BalmBalm I love, because unlike a lot of organic companies, their labelling is […]

Organic Wednesday – A change from our usual programming.

In which Get Lippie goes off on one and hopes she’ll be forgiven … Here at Get Lippie, I have a lot of organic products, and I read a LOT of pseudo-scientific gubbins about why organic products are better than products that contain ingredients which are not organic. And, by and large, I take most  of these claims with a pinch of salt.  You can […]
