Summer holidays are finally here and I’m so pleased to have some down time. It’s been pretty hectic!
As always it’s time to share the lovely goodies from this month’s LoveLula Beauty Box.
I was pleased with this month’s selection of products which includes skincare, haircare and makeup and the total value is £60 which is fabulous.
PHB’s Award Winning All-In-One Natural Mascara is the perfect all-encompassing mascara. It lengthens, thickens and volumises lashes with a gentle water-resistant formula that lasts all day without ever smudging or flaking. Made with a unique blend of botanical oils which nourish and protect, helping to lengthen and strengthen lashes naturally for beautiful eyes.
Best Natural Mascara – Winner at the Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards 2013
I was in need of a new mascara and was pleased to try this one from PHB which is a lovely true black. The brush is easy to apply and I find I only need one coat on my lashes without any clumping. I’m pretty impressed with this ~ my lashes were pretty and had great volume and length but still looked natural as I’m not a fan of over the top lashes.
The formula is great for sensitive eyes which is an added bonus as I wear contact lenses. It was easy to remove at night with my cleansing oil. I would definitely recommend this.
An extraordinary oil, light and easily absorbed, yet rich and deeply nourishing. This oil is host to a range of five star ingredients in very meaningful quantities. Rich in antioxidants to halt damaging chain reactions caused by free radicals and a broad range of fatty acids that boost lipid content, bolstering skin barrier and helping the skin retain moisture.
I’m a big fan of Lyonsleaf and was pleased to see this new product. This oil is jam packed with nourishing oils. The texture is surprisingly light and absorbs easily. I prefer to use it at night after cleansing to help repair and rejuvenate my skin. It really helps to soften my skin and help with dehydration.
It does have a strong scent, but I quite like it, a combination of warm, woodsy from Vetiver; floral from Geranium and rose flower.
REN Satin Perfection BB cream 3ml (Full size 50ml – £29)
A silicone free BB cream with colour adaptive technology. It adjust to a wide range of skin tones and leaves the skin looking flawless, even toned and luminous with a perfect non-oily, satin finish.
This BB cream is obviously not suitable for my skin tone so I have to give it away.
This purifying shampoo optimizes scalp conditions for healthy, manageable hair. Six certified-organic ingredients remove buildup and stimulate the scalp while soy proteins hydrate hair and lock in moisture.
- spearmint & peppermint – stimulate scalp for optimal hair growth
- meadowsweet extract (spiraea ulmaria) – natural astringent; prevents hair loss
- eucalyptus oil – removes bacteria; anti-inflammatory
- zinc – reduces irritation and protects the scalp
- soy protein – strengthens hair follicle
- guar gum – natural thickening agent; builds volume; locks in moisture and increases shine
I love John Masters and I’ve used this shampoo previously. It is one of the shampoos that works well for me as it doesn’t leave my hair stripped. It lathers well and leaves my scalp and hair squeaky clean and refreshed. It smells amazingly fresh and I just love the minty sensation on my scalp, it’s great for unclogging pores and increases blood circulation which in turn helps encourage hair growth.
Madara Smart Antioxidants Fine Line Minimising Cream – Day
This rich, youth-preserving cream melts into the skin and provides comfort and protection all day long. Formulated with an age-defying SMART ANTIOXIDANT complex of Lichen, Moss, Fern, and Alchemilla to deliver intense hydration, reverse the first signs of ageing, and smooth out fine lines. Natural antioxidants provide continuous defence to preserve collagen and promote resilience and firmness of the skin.
I don’t need to reverse ageing or smooth out fine lines so it’s hard to tell how effective this cream is. However for me it’s a lovely cream. The texture is light and absorbs quickly and leaves my skin well hydrated.
What do you think of this month’s box?
A great box this month. If you love green beauty and are in search of a monthly beauty box I would definitely recommend trying the LoveLula beauty box.
