3rd and final Love Lula Beauty Box 

Hi everyone, so this was my final beauty box from Love Lula, I got 3 full sized items and one sample. So far my favourite is the papaya, pineapple lip balm which smells amazing and leaves my lips so soft and I really liked the packaging for the body wash. Overall I really did like the products and I had a few favourites, so I think I’ll definitely buy the Love Lula Beauty Box again. It’s definitely worth the money and you get a range of products to try which I think is great and of course everything was natural. 

  • Unwind Body Wash £16 300ml

  • Pore Minimiser Facial Masque £7.99 50ml

  • Papaya Pineapple Lip balm £4.99 4.3g

  • Daily Moisturising Cream sample

2nd Love Lula Beauty Box 

Hello again, the 2nd beauty box was just as good it came with 5 items and I have to say I think this Maggie Anne nail varnish is my most favourite nail varnish ever!! I absolutely love the nude colour and it has a bit if a gel effect. It lasts maximum without chipping for 3 days which is the only down side but other than that it’s still really good. I haven’t had the chance to use any of the others yet but I know I’ll like them especially the Madara Micellar Water which is supposed to be really good for removing makeup.

  • Micellar Water £14* 100ml

  • Botanical Bodywash £8.50* 100ml

  • Skin Food £10.95* 10ml

  • Natural Marula Replenishing Face Oil £9.50* 15ml

  • Maggie Anne Nail Polish £10.50 11ml

1st Love Lula Beauty Box

I’ve always wanted to subscribe to a beauty box and of course I wanted it to be organic. I was super happy when I found Love Lula check them out here: https://www.lovelula.com 

Love Lula sell a range of items on their website from shampoo, makeup to body products there’s so much to choose from. The subscription box I chose was for 3 months and cost £37.50 which I thought was a little expensive at first but the products I received were definitely worth it. The box came around the 2nd week of the month and I was so excited to see what I got. I was quite pleased that there was no makeup in there even though it is a beauty box beauty is much more than just makeup also I don’t really wear that much. 

There was between 4-5 products in each box, some were full sized and most were sample sized but not too small. Each box came with a discount code off the products in the box. So I’ve tried to find the prices of each product too if you want to see roughly how much the box equates to.

Here goes my first Love Lula beauty box…

    Mini PHB Ethical Beauty haul 

    I absolutely love what this company stands for, they are all about natural, organic products that are free from all those bad stuff. The company is a family run business and they even donate a percentage of the profit to a charity 🙂 so nice.

    My makeup is really simple and I don’t wear too much, mostly around my eyes but I thought I would try wearing blusher again like I used too. My current foundation was almost finished so I needed a new one and I decided to try a new bb cream.


    Botanical BB Cream: £18.95 shade Cocoa

    Mineral Foundation: £15.95 shade cinnamin

    Pressed Mineral Blusher: £14.95 shade Peony

    Organic Beauty Week 2016

    I think this is pretty cool actually, a week dedicated to organic beauty 🙂 something that really interests me as I’m still mostly using organic products. It can be quite hard to know for certain if a product is truly organic however in the UK if it has the Soil Association symbol then you’ll know for certain that both the ingredients and methods used are of the correct standards. Of course you can always check the ingredients for those bad chemicals.

    Use this link here: https://www.soilassociation.org/organic-living/health-beauty-textiles/health-beauty/our-certified-brands/  to see a wide selection of products that are certified by the Soil Association as being organic and of high quality. One of the main reasons I prefer organic or natural products is because of the negative effect it can have on my health. Our entire body is the largest organ we have and we really should look after it because everything we put on our skin is absorbed into our body.

    Every now and then you’ll read an article about a serious reaction someone has had from using a beauty product which you would have thought to be safe, so it just seems like a better idea to use kinder products.


    Also do check out some of my previous posts on organic/natural beauty!!! ❤

    Mostly: the product claims to be organic but I’m not entirely sure.

    Moroccan Clay Pore Refining Mud Mask

    I brought this clay mud mask a while back and finally decided to use it, literally the minute I tore the top a sweet aroma came from the clay it reminded me of a sweet chewing gum I used to have as a  kid.

    It was really nice and easy to apply to my skin, I used my fingers rubbing it in slightly, once it dried up on my face it went a bit flaky and didn’t leave my face uncomfortably tight as other face masks do. I used some warm water to wash it off and pat dried my face before rubbing in some oil. Afterwards my skin felt so smooth, refreshed and soft 🙂 the cost is £1.99 from Holland and Barretts it’s a little pricey but for very good quality and 1 sachet has at least three uses. Using any clay mask is a great way to just relax for a few moments and enjoy your own company.

    The Body Shop: gift bag

    image

    I went to The Body Shop for a special event and received a gift bag worth £40, they had complimentary drinks and canapé style food which was obviously my favourite 🙂 but also the staff were on hand to give skincare advice and explain more about the products. People were getting massages too! There was a presentation mainly hosted by dhdn iebdui which was so informative and gave a better insight into the type of products The Body Shop produce. I’m still interested in natural/organic items which is why I like this particular store. One thing I know for sure is that they do care about where their ingredients come from.

    You did have to spend £15 or more to receive the goody bag, my favourites are:

    I was definitely grateful for the free items however if I got the chance to make any changes 😉 it would have been nice if the Honey Bronze was available in different shades that would suit my skin likewise with the Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick

    Overall it was a great evening and I definitely enjoyed myself.

    Review: Lily Lolo Eyebrow Duo

    Hey 🙂

    image

    So I think my eyebrows are probably my favourite part of my face to do, I really wish I had thicker eyebrows but I don’t so I just fill them in instead. I actually tried the castor oil on my eyebrows and eyelashes but it didn’t thicken or lengthen either however it did keep them moisturised and soft.

    image

    My very used powder

    I’ve been using this eyebrow duo powder for so long now I can’t imagine using anything else. I love that it’s a powder so when applying it to your brows it can be as natural or dark regarding on what you like, I always fill mine in super dark 🙂 and it comes with the gel to keep those brows in place.

    image

    I can’t remember exactly where online I brought it but the brand Lily Lolo is sold throughout many online websites http://www.lilylolo.co.uk
    It cost £7.99 and I brought it in the dark shade.

    image

    I firstly brush my eyebrows using the spooli brush and apply the powder using the angled brush which fills out my brows accurately with precision! The powder is light in texture and can be applied on heavy or natural, even though it’s a mineral powder it literally lasts all day long and washes off easily too.

    Review: Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Skin Lotion

    image

    This week my review is on my favourite skin lotion, from Holland and Barratts at £7.49

    I definitely think the price is reasonable because you get 200ml in the tube which will last for ages. A little goes a long way, it’s really absorbed into the skin and doesn’t leave your hands feeling sticky or a weird layer over your skin like other lotions do. It’s best in my opinion to use this lotion after a bath or shower because it is really moisturising and always leaves my skin super soft.

    image

    The lotion comes out of the tube with a smooth consistency and white colour. The aroma is sweet, light and lasts a while so you may get compliments throughout the day 🙂

    Also I really love the shape of the bottle because it doesn’t take up a lot of space and the lid is very secure so you can carry it around without the worry of it leaking.

    What’s your favourite lotion?
