LoveLula Beauty Box January 2019

It’s been a super busy month for me and I’m excited to share the first LoveLula Beauty Box of 2019.  I’m always happy to discover new products and this month features products that are new to me with a total value of £54.

First up is a brand new product from Balm Balm which is exclusive to Beauty Box subscribers…

Balm Balm Lavender Hand Balm (60ml | £12.50)

Made from Shea butter, sunflower, beeswax, jojoba, calendula & lavender essential oil, gently melted together to create a medium soft balm formulation to soothe, moisturise and nourish your hands or anywhere else that might need caring for.

INGREDIENTS:

Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) seed oil, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter), Cera alba (Beeswax), Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Lavandula anguvstifolia (lavender) oil, Calendula officinalis (calendula) flower extract, *d-Limonene, *Geraniol, * Linalol *Naturally occurring in essential oils.

I love Balm Balm and I can never get enough of a multi-purpose balm. This is a beautiful blend of natural and organic oils, shea butter, waxes and Lavender essential oil.

I love the beautifully calming scent of Lavender and this hand balm is soothing and nourishing for hard working hands. The consistency is soft and it absorbs well into the skin without any greasy residue. A little goes a long way and you can use it on any area that needs moisturising and nourishing.

I like to use it as a lip balm and also as a sleep balm for myself and the kids, I massage a small amount to the temples, neck and pulse points and the deeply relaxing scent of Lavender helps us drift off to sleep.

For an extra treat you can try a home manicure by putting a little amount of the balm into a bowl of warm water and soak your hands for a few minutes. Pat your hands dry, gently push back cuticles and moisturise. For a DIY exfoliator, add some salt or sugar and exfoliate for silky smooth hands.

Envelop your body in divine softness and comfort with this lightweight moisture-boosting formula that hydrates and rejuvenates the skin leaving it irresistibly soft and smooth.  Enriched with a luxurious blend of softening oat extract and aromatic essences of jasmine and meadowsweet, it also enhances the sense of wellbeing.

I was eager to try out this body lotion from MÁDARA.  It has a lovely creamy texture which feels nice and silky on the skin.  It is softening and hydrating and leaves my skin smooth and moisturised.  I love also the beautiful floral scent which lingers nicely.

I don’t suffer from redness or irritation so I can’t tell how effective this is. It is an ok serum to use under moisturiser as it is lightweight.

 
Dr.botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask (15ml | £14.90)

Pomegranate Regenerating Sleeping Mask is a perfect hydrating overnight treatment for thirsty dull skin.

INGREDIENTS:

Aqua (Water), Kaolin, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Acacia Decurrens/Jojoba/Sunflower Seed Wax/Polyglyceryl-3 Esters, Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Sodium Levulinate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Anisate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Xanthan Gum, Phytic Acid, Levulinic Acid, Cellulose Gum, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Sucrose, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Fruit Extract, Citric Acid.

I honestly haven’t used this as an overnight mask as I don’t like to use heavy products on my skin overnight. On days when I’m just lounging around the house, I’ll apply it on my skin and leave for a few hours and then rinse off.

The consistency is slightly thick and it takes a while to absorb. My skin feels soft and hydrated afterwards.

 

Overall I’m pleased with this month’s box and look forward to next month!
