Unboxing: EcoNaturals, Cult Beauty – Science and surprises

After having my baby boy in early March, I somehow lost track.

Track of time, track of my chores, basically track of everything that wasn’t feeding or nappy changing.

Which means I also lost track of the parcels arriving at my doorstep, even though I had been eagerly awaiting some of the things inside them.

Unboxing: EcoNaturals, Cult Beauty

So when I finally emerged out of the fog surrounding the early days and realized that it was April already, I decided it was time to catch up. And given the decision to catch up on household chores or beauty items, I chose the latter.

Tough choice, I know.

And to make things even more enjoyable, I slapped on some makeup, changed into a fresh (read: no puke) top and turned on the camera.

Do you usually wait for GWP occasions when stocking up on new things?

Or do you feel you will get too much stuff that wouldn’t be working for you?

  • Great video, I’ll definitely be checking some of these products out. Especially the Sunday Riley Sleeping Oil!

    • I have been using it for a few days now, and so dar I really enjoy it. Not drying at all, like some of the Retinol products are. Have you tried anything with Vitamin A?

  • Wellwell Girl

    this is lovely! gonna check them out later!x

  • That’s an exciting haul! The Cult Beauty GWP looks really good, I always miss them. x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • I asked on Twitter before I ordered, and I have shopped so much there that I do get an eMail alert one day prior. As a good customer, you know…

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    Loving your makeup in this video! The warm tones look really good on you, darling. 🙂 x I also really like the look of that contour kit by ABH… I always drool over their products but they’re a little hard to get in the UK! <3


    • Thank you, Kay. It has been my quick go-to look, takes less than five minutes to slap on. I ordered my Contour Kit from Cult Beauty, they stock Anastasia now, so they should be pretty easy to get for you.

  • I would like to see reviews on Sunday Riley Sleeping Oil Luna and VERSO Reviving Eye Mask, please. 🙂


    • I already started using it, I think a review will be up in two months. July, I suppose. And the eye mask, okay. I will probably do a YT First impressions on a few of these products, because it is just that one use, and I will include the eye mask there.

  • A lot of interesting products! I’d love to read your review on Sunday Riley Sleeping Oil Luna 🙂

    -Leta | The Nerdy Me

  • Have you tried the Luna oil before? I’d love to read a review on it, I’ve heard so many good things about it but it is quite the investment and I always trust and practically live by your reviews haha ♥

    • I will have it up in July, so I can test it for two months, but it is a promise.

  • Seen your video pop up in my subscription box today! Loved watching it and loved reading this! Great review!

    Darriyan xx | http://www.darriyancateland.blogspot.com

  • Looking forward to watching this later! xx


  • Can’t wait to see all the reviews!

    Congrats on your baby boy!! What is his name? I’ve been gone for so long (life..) I may have missed your reveal of that. I do have some questions on the products you receive, do you ever look int the environmental impact these companies have? Or what EXACTLY goes into making the products they send you? I’d love to know that as it impacts my buying decisions and I’m sure more of your readers would as well!


    • You didn’t miss it, I didn’t reveal his name. We decided to keep our children private, so no names or pictures on the blog or on social media.
      Regarding your question: No, I don’t look into the environmental impact of the companies. To be honest, I wouldn’t even know where to start looking. I do look at the ingredients and check back if i.e. the palm oil they use is of certified origin or harvested wildly, but I haven’t done yet with EcoNaturals. Even though I try to shop environmental conscious, I am afraid that is not my area of expertise.

  • wow so viele intressante produkte 🙂 das sleeping oil klingt so gut, das würde ich auch mal gerne ausprobieren 🙂

  • thefashionsalt

    Your little boy sounds so cute and he’s so quiet compared to other babies I’ve known. This was a fun unboxing. I’d love to see how the Natura Siberica icy lifting mask does. Is it just for the neck or could it be used on the face as well? I’d also love to hear more about that eye serum, even though it can’t really change dna.

    • That was a lucky coincidence, he isn’t a particular quiet or easy baby. But I learned when he naps and grabbed the opportunity!
      I will check the ingredients of the mask and see if it would be safe to use on the face as well. So far I haven’t tried it yet, but maybe the mint might be to irritating.

  • Oh my you’ve got some really lovely products there! I’ll watch the video as soon as possible, but I can tell from the list of products it’s going to be a good one! But I’ll get back to you when I’ve watched the video! 🙂
    Have a lovely weekend 🙂

    • I hope you have a lovely weekend as well, Emma. Exciting plans now that you have more time on your hands?

  • Pisa

    Sehr tolle Produkte! Hab mir direkt mal eine wishlist erstelllt: Sunday Riley Sleeping Oil Luna und
    Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in „Fair“ muss ich mir demnächst zulegen! 🙂
    Tolles Video!
    LG, Pisa

    • Auf das Luna Oil habe ich auch ewig gewartet, ich habe es auch direkt am Abend nach dem Filmen aufgemacht. Ich habe schliesslich neun lange Monate darauf gewartet!

  • I love the idea of a neck and décolletage mask and cream, especially now as you said!
    The cult beauty bags are always such a treat, I’ve gotten two or three in the past and they are always filled with so many goodies. Enjoy!

    • All the help I can get… Even though, like last time, breastfeeding doesn’t come easy and I have to top up with formula. Oh well, we will get through it. And I have some awesome goodies to keep me distracted, thanks to Cult Beauty.

  • Toyas Tales

    I haven’t received a beauty bag in awhile but when I do I get excited about what they have to offer. I haven’t tried a neck mask and since I’m getting older I would like to see a review on that.

    • I have already started using the cream and will incorporate the mask into my evening routine as well.

  • Wow the range of products you received in this box looks really nice. I totally wait for GWP promos to stock up on my beauty products. I’d love to see a review on the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser. Been quite curious about this brand.

    • Noted, I will start using it asap so I can report back in July.
      GWP are such a great way to get more for your money, so if you know they are coming, it would be a waste not to stock up.

  • Big haul! If I didn’t know you were so busy momming I would ask for a review on ALL TEH THINGS.

  • Oh I know that feeling! Both boys napped at the same time today. I had a choice of chores or relaxing….so I put my feet up and did blog stuff as I ate lunch. Worth the messy house haha!

    You got a great range of products, even if it was a while before you could give them some attention 😉

    • Relax whenever there is the chance, ho knows when it will come back!

  • Congrats on the brth of your son!
    I’d love to see your take on the Sunday Riley Luna oil!




    • Thank you. I already started using the oil, so you can expect as review in July.

  • Oh, you got so many great goodies. I’d love to hear your thought on the Luna oil.


  • Rosanna Briguglio

    Great selection of products, love the video!
    Have a lovely weekend 🙂
    Rosanna x

  • You got some great products, Love the sound of the Econaturals store and will be checking them out thank you. Gemma x

    • I hadn´t heard of them before they contacted me, but they do have some great stuff on the website.

  • Ordering makeup online isn’t something I like to do, I want to see and swatch the stuff before I buy, but skincare is no problem.
    Are you planning a little treat to yourself after you are done?

  • Surbhi Suri

    Loving ur videos lately . Love the products too . I see a lot of these I didn’t know about ANd I doubt about the availability in my country . But am taking notes haha..
    New post on my blog . Do drop by soon <3

    • Some of them can be ordered online, but I understand it is tricky in India.

  • The whole time I was watching the video, I was thinking about how much I loved your makeup – you’re glowing!

    Gabrielle | A Glass Of Ice x

    • Thank you. It is such a quick and easy makeup, my go-to for these days when I have basically no time to get ready.

  • Love your video! Getting beauty boxes like this in the mail is always so much fun!


  • Yulia

    I’ve heard so much about Natura Siberica from European bloggers. I tried to find it for sale here in Canada, but with no success. I guess I will grab a few creams on my next trip to Europe:) Thank you so much for sharing, Linda. You look amazing!:)


    • I never heard about Natura Siberia before, but I am excited to get to know them a little better. When are you coming to Europe? And which part of Europe will you be going to?

  • idu

    Huge congratulations on the babe. I honestly don’t remember reading about baby boy’s debut or did I? I’d totally choose beauty products over chores any day any time, haha. Smelling like coconuts makes this a winner for me. Treating myself is always paramount and I love your present to yourself. Enjoy your goodies babe. You are still glowing, :).


    • I dient do a special annoncement on the blog, as we decides when our daughter was born two years ago that we wouldn’t share any pictures (or names) online. We want to keep our children private and give them the opportunity to decide for themselves if they want to go online someday. But he was born in March, he is a big boy, always hungry and already outgrowing his newborn stuff. And no good sleeper…

  • Lovely picks – that Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Face Mist is beautiful by the way. And congratulations on the new baby!
    Becca | theBeautyInbox

    • I am excited to try it, so far I haven’t found a face mist that did anything in terms of skincare for me. maybe that one is a game changer.

  • I’ll be curious to know what you think of the Queen of Hungary Face Mist since Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is based on something similar, if I remember their claims well!


    • I will test it and probably do a comparison post or something similar soon.

  • love this!

  • I think the reviews I’d like to see first are the Luna Oil, the contour kit and the Aurelia cleanser. No pressure, though! 😉

    • They were the top three requests, so I have scheduled them in and incorporated them into my routine already. They will be up come July.

  • Caliope Couture

    Einige dieser Produkte klingen sehr interessant. Ich kannte die Shops noch gar nicht, aber werde mich dort gleich mal umschauen. Beauty Boxen klingen zwar interessant, aber ich fürchte, ich würde zuviele Produkte ansammeln, die ich dann ohnehin nicht benutze.
    Wünsche dir ein tolles Wochenende!
    Christina ♥ https://caliope-couture.com

    • Da kommt mir entgegen, dass ich so neugierig bin. Ich schmiere mir so gut wie alles ins Gesicht. Also, was Hautpflege angeht.

  • Nadia

    You’re so kind to take on our guinea pig role, hon 🙂
    Skincare boxes are amazing, so many lovely products to discover. Which one are you most excited about to try? Natura Siberica sounds interesting + Oil Luna & eye mask along with eye renewal serum. I’ve been especially interested in discovering great eye products.
    Hope your baby boy is doing perfect. You’re such a good mama looking after your kiddies the best. Also, LOVE your Snapchat hon!
    xox Nadia

    • Oh, thank you. I only just got Snapchat, but it is so much fun! Love following you along as well, the love and positivity you spread is amazing. That is why I think it is a brilliant idea to blog your trips for You Tube!
      I am most excited about Luna, I have been waiting for ten months to finally be able to use it, so onto my face t went immediately after filming this video.

    Regarding the PIXI Glow Tonic: I will do a separate post on it, but in the meantime I have a video on exfoliants where I talk about it as well, it will be up on May 4th. But as spoiler: I love it.

    • I started using it the second I filmed the video, so I will have a review up soon.
