Another busy month, can’t believe how quickly time flies. It’s time to share the goodies we received in May’s LoveLula Beauty Box
I was pretty excited to see 4 full sized products (all new for me) and 1 sample face mask.
The beauty box monthly subscription costs £14.95 and the total value of this month’s box is £67 which is pretty good value for money.
There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 25% off the brands featured in the box.
Here’s what’s in the box…

I have a growing collection of face masks, I’m always keen to try out new ones though. This face mask is nice and creamy and glides on smoothly. You can leave it on or wipe off after 15-20 minutes. The scent is quite mild which I like and I use it as an overnight mask. It absorbs quickly so once I go to bed it won’t stain my pillow. In the morning my skin feels nourished, super soft and smooth.
Ayumi Sandalwood & Ylang Ylang Body Scrub (200ml | £6.99)
Scared Sandalwood body scrub to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin with finely ground olive seed powder without stripping away precious hydration. Exotic oils of Amazonian Babassu and caressing Jojoba feed a soft silkiness to the most sensitive of skin. This luxurious treat full of precious essential oils contains sultry, seductive sandalwood, soothing lavender, prevocative patchouli, and a kiss of sumptuous ylang ylang tinged with a tingle of ginger to swamp the skin and senses in supple, sensuous softness.

This is a new brand to LoveLula and I’m currently trying out some of their hair care products.
Summer is around the corner so I regularly exfoliate at least twice a week to get rid of dull winter skin.
The consistency is what I expected from a body scrub. It feels more like a shower gel with exfoliating pumice. I use it twice a week instead of my regular body wash. It foams slightly, cleansing and exfoliating at the same time. After rinsing my skin is silky smooth and soft.
The scent is quite distinctive. I love the warm, balsamic and woody scent of Sandalwood paired with the floral sweet scent of ylang ylang. The scent is deeply intoxicating, fills my entire bathroom and lingers beautifully on my skin.

Let me start of with how gorgeous the packaging is… so eye-catching. It sits beautifully in my bathroom or bedside table. The dispensing pump is handy and my kids love using it after washing their hands.
The consistency is light and it sinks in quickly without leaving my hands tacky or greasy. My hands feel nice and soft and the scent is fresh and refreshing.
JOIK Silky Lipbalm – Pastel Pink (7g | £6)
