A little while ago I was sent two products from Green Energy Organics; the Le Rituel Extra Doux Eye and Lip Serum and La Recolte des Fleur D’Orange Phito-Hair Oil. Both of which I have been really impressed with. The Le Rituel Extra Doux Eye and Lip Serum is described on the website as being:
For dry, dehydrated and stressed skin. This ultra-moisturising and nourishing serum for the skin around the eyes and lips, saturates skin with moisture and smoothes facial wrinkles. It is ideal to be used during and after pregnancy.
So being a mum of 3 (including an almost 2 year old ferocious toddler) this product is exactly what I am looking for. Having babies usually equates to being sleep deprived, food deprived, and water deprived so it is only natural that your skin is going to need some extra TLC putting into it.
Just to let you guys in on a little secret – there will be a competition to win some Green Energy Organic goodies at the start of October so keep your eyes peeled. There is also a 20% off discount code at the end of this post to use at www.millabaci.com (Green Energy Organics UK distributor) because they are a super generous company – and that’s why I love them!
Before I get on with my review though here are a few facts about Green Energy Organics below.

Green Energy Organics: Eye and Lip Serum – Le Rituel Extra Doux
The Low-down: Le Rituel Extra Doux is an anti-ageing hydrating organic serum for both eyes and lips. It totes the following benefits:
- Increases the skins suppleness.
- Plumps out fine lines.
- Instantly hydrates and leaves skin glowing.
- Replenishes the delicate eye area improving the skins resilience and thus making it firmer.
- Contains cacao and grape extracts to aid in the stimulation of cell renewal.
- Rejuvenates and heals the skin.
- Rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, D, E, mineral trace elements and beta carotene, almond proteins, calendula.
- Dermatologically tested, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and recycled packaging.
Pros: This really did instantly plump out and hydrate the skin around my eye area. I haven’t got particularly prominent fine lines around my eyes, only really when I’m not hydrated enough, but the lines that are visible do diminish greatly. The skin feels silky smooth and you can feel a definite ‘lifting effect’. It also worked well with the skin around my lips, being an ex-smoker I do have a few puckered looking bits. The smell is gorgeous – like chocolate and calendula. Also 100% natural ingredients!
Cons: In all honesty I can’t really say that there were really any cons except for the price tag and a slight flaw in the packaging. It’s not the most affordable product but one pump can quite literally cover your entire face so it is definitely well worth the money. The packaging flaw is with the pump dispenser itself although only superficial – the ‘silver’ coating actually flakes off when using it so you can end up with the odd silver fleck on your face. If you like your bottles nice and neat then this may annoy you.
Where to Buy: You can buy direct via Millabaci (Green Energy Organics UK distributor).
I was incredibly impressed by this product, and in fact I would have given it a 5/5 rating if there wasn’t a superficial packaging fault – but if you’re going to pay almost £40 for a product then I would guess that you’d expect perfect packaging. Don’t get me wrong though I loved the packaging itself – it looked super luxurious, it’s not an annoying finickity dispenser pump, and it does kinda look like an ornament whilst sitting on your shelf. Bonus.
If you’re interested in looking at the ingredients list then take a look below and you will find that there isn’t anything sinister in there – just 100% natural ingredients.
Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Caprylic/Carpic Triglyceride, Cetearyll Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil*, Glyceryl Stearate, Oryzanol, Xanthan Gum, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Leaf Extract*, Althea Officinalis Root Extract*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Potassium Sorbate, Leuconostoc (lactobacillus)/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Capryloyl Glycine, Parfum (Fragrance), Linalool.
As for how the product performed I could not be happier, that really would be a 5/5, and I would certainly buy this as and when I had the money. My face has literally been saved by this product; I don’t have dark under eye circles or wrinkles, the skin around my lips has plumped out somewhat, and on days where I have had 30 minutes sleep (yes really I am not joking) I have slathered it all over my face for an instant pick me up. I also like to use it throughout the day to refresh my eyes somewhat.
The size of the product is perfect – 30ml will literally last you a few months as a little of the serum goes a very long way so it really is worth every penny.
So, I will definitely buy this product again and I have to say that it has given me an insight into what the rest of the skincare range could be like. I’m very tempted, although too broke, to buy a few more products from the Le Rituel Extra Doux range! There’s also a cream cleanser, toner, exfoliant, gel face mask, and 24h face cream in the full range (for the face).
