Review: Love Lula May Beauty Box

Here's my review of this month's fabulous Love Lula Beauty Box.


I've used a few Alteya products and it's always a pleasure to try more. In fact, I'm still using their white rose water which was a Love Lula pick for February! I just love the scent of these waters and how refreshing and soothing they are on the face. They are of course, multi-use such as food additives and for cleaning, but I've been just using them on face and body. I would say the white one is my favourite scent of the two, but this is a welcome addition and a great size for travel.

This is the second eye product I've tried from PHB, as I've recently been using their brightening gel. This one's just as nice with a pleasant scent. It feels soothing and sinks in well. However, I'm not going to use this one during the day as I found the brightening one flakes off when you try to apply make-up over it, so I'm guessing this one might do the same. At night though, this is a relaxing product to use and I'm looking forward to testing its claims.

 I was thrilled to get this as I've had my eye on it for a bit. You can't beat LyonsLeaf, I've got their Beauty Balm and I've also used their body butter and calendula cream. I love a good balm for my various dry bits and my son's too.
This doesn't smell of much and it's a very nice bright orange (Lyonsleaf's colours cheer me up). I've been using it at night and it's proved to be a very effective hydrator (spell check says that's not a word, but never mind) and moisturiser.
Note: the balm contains beeswax, so not suitable for vegans.

Ingredients (English): Organic Sunflower Oil, Babassu Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Avocado Oil, Cold Pressed Borage Oil, Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil, Calendula Extract, Marsh Mallow Extract, Natural Vitamin E Oil. Ingredients (INCI): Helianthus Annuus, Orbignya Oleifera, Cera Alba, Persea Gratissima, Borago Officinalis, Rosa Canina, Calendula Officinalis, Althaea Officinalis, Tocopherol.

This is a really nice, shimmery brown that looks great on the eyes and doesn't crease.
Bellapierre is certified cruelty-free but their ingredient list for this says 'may contain carmine'. This is an ingredient permitted by Cruelty Free International, which I don't agree with. I'd be happier if Love Lula only stocked products without carmine.

Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron oxides. May contain: Carmine.

This award winning brand are vegan, organic and Leaping Bunny certified. Their Sacha Inchi ingredient is the earth's richest plant source of omega 3. Their products are gentle enough for babies and children and recommended for pregnancy.
I was lucky enough to try a couple of samples of this from the company when it was first stocked at Love Lula, so it was great to see it included in this month's box. As well as myself, I used one all over my son after his bath and while messy - which oil in sachets always is! - it was very nourishing and smells absolutely gorgeous. I'd definitely buy this again with a view to using it as a face oil too.
Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Coco-Caprylate, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Persea Gratissima Oil, Citrus Nobilis Peel Oil, Tocopherol, Citrus Paradisi Peel Oil, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Citral, Geraniol, Linalool, Limonene

In summary: Another great box this month. My favourite products were the toner, the oil and the balm.
