LoveLula Beauty Box July 2019

Ad: Gifted box received as part of the LoveLula Accredited Blogger Program. As always I give honest and unbiased reviews of products I receive.  This post contains affiliate links.

Summer holidays are finally here! I’m so happy because I hate school runs.  I can be more relaxed and take things at a slower pace, enjoy quality time with family and friends. 

It’s time to share July’s LoveLula Beauty Box 

I have to say this month’s box is pretty amazing. I’m so happy with all the products featured and the value is £101 which is pretty outstanding.

Monthly subscription costs £14.95. There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 25% off the brands featured in the box.

This month’s box contains full sized goodies from MÁDARA and Kathleen Natural, a travel size product from Skin Alchemists Apothecary, plus a travel set from Dafna’s Personal Skincare.

 

What’s in the box:

MÁDARA Plum Plum Lip Perfection Balm (15ml | £10)

Intensely rejuvenating lip balm. Use alone for a sheer finish or as a base for your favourite lipstick. Lips stay soft, protected, and hydrated to perfection.

Based on moisturising jojoba oil, richly nourishing shea butter, and repairing plum oil. Perfect for dry lips – damaged by sun, wind or cold. The vitamin and nutrient-rich plum oil rehydrates the lips without being too heavy, and adds both suppleness and volume.

100% NATURAL, 88% ORGANIC.
NO parabens, NO petrochemicals, NO synthetic fragrances or colours. Only pure ingredients for soft and kissable lips.

Ingredients:

Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil Cera Alba Sorbitan Olivate Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit Butter Aroma Prunus Domestica (Plum) Seed Oil Tocopherol Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil Propolis Extract Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea-buckthorn) Fruit Extract Chamomilla Recutita (Camomile) Flower Extract Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract Stevia Extract CI 77491 (Iron oxide) Limonene Linalool Citral Geraniol

This lip balm is new for me and I love it. The consistency is thick but melts into your lips once you apply it and feels more like a gloss.

It feels soft, smooth and moisturising on my lips without feeling greasy or sticky. I love the sweet and fruity fragrance… juicy plum and red berries with light hints of vanilla, almond and marzipan.

It looks great on its own or with your favourite lipstick. Definitely a favourite now.

This cleanser is really gentle and leaves my skin clean and balanced.  I like to use it to cleanse my skin in the morning.  The scent is lovely and refreshing.  To use I apply to dry skin and massage gently for 1 minute, then I wet my hands and massage for another minute before rinsing.  My skin feels nice and soft afterwards.

Active Mist – An innovative light active facial mist and toner that combines plants essence and oil concentrations by a pioneer formula-MelaCareTM (dry oil) to actively restore skin natural tone, fight photo- aging signs, while proving hydration, glow and sense of freshness. 

This is a lovely mist and toner that soothes, softens and hydrates the skin.  I like to spray lightly over my face after cleansing and then apply the moisturiser.

I also like to use it after applying my makeup, my skin is nice and dewy afterwards.

Moisture Light – light moisturizer with fast absorption. Includes 19 hydrating and renewing ingredients as Hyaluronic Acid and Argan oil and fresh and calming extracts of Calendula and figs. Neroli and Rosemary essential oils uplift the spirit and provide skin with special glow.

I love Dafna’s Moisture + so I was excited to try the light version.   The consistency is light and silky so perfect for the warmer weather.  It absorbs well and moisturises my skin without any greasy residue.  My skin feels super soft and smooth.

Eye care – ultimate high performing solution for the eye zone. Light serum-lotion packed with pure oils, Hyaluronic Acid and Tense’Up TM pioneer biotechnology.  Hydrates the skin and provides a feeling of comfort and vivid look.

The lotion is enriched with Rosehip oil that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and Calendula extract which help to reduce puffiness at the eyes area. 

I love the light serum consistency of this eye cream.  A little goes a long way, it glides on smoothly onto my skin and absorbs quickly.  I enjoy using this and I’ve found it helps reduce puffiness around my eyes.

This is a truly luxurious face oil brimming with exotic oils and spices.

I prefer to use it as part of my nightime routine when I have more time to indulge and pamper myself. The consistency is light, you only need a few drops and it absorbs well. Before I apply to my skin I take my time to appreciate the gorgeous scent which is sensual and hypnotic.

This has got to be one of my favourite face oils. I’ve noticed a difference in my skin, it feels more balanced, happy with a healthy glow.

 

What an amazing box from LoveLula this month.  I can’t wait to see what’s in store next month!
