It’s time to share October’s LoveLula Beauty Box. This month’s box is worth £59 and features full-sized products from Seascape Island Apothecary, Balmonds, Laidbare, Dr Botanicals and a sample sachet from Mossa.

What’s inside:

 
Seascape Island Apothecary Uplift Body Lotion (300ml | £16)

Contains 100% natural essential oils of Jersey Eucalyptus to stimulate the circulation, Lime to energise the body and Lavender to refresh the senses. Enriched with Jersey Beeswax and natural Shea Butter to nourish and protect the skin. This light but effective body lotion sinks in quickly and leaves a lovely finish to your skin.

The consistency of this body lotion is perfect and it spreads easily on the skin. It’s easy to massage into the skin and doesn’t take long to absorb. My skin is really dry and this leaves it soft, smooth and moisturised without any greasy residue. It also smells amazing, the unusual blend of eucalyptus, lime and lavender works really well. The scent is truly refreshing and uplifting!

The consistency of this mask is light and creamy and it has a light scent. My skin is dehydrated so I love to use a hydrating mask twice a week.

Intensive Facial Oil is a gorgeous blend of beneficial oils specially chosen for their incredible rejuvenating properties, feeding tired, delicate or damaged skin with the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay soft, healthy and hydrated.

I love face oils and this blend from Balmonds contains skin nourishing oils Rosehip oil, Grapeseed oil and Calendula. It smells beautiful as well thanks to Lavender, Palmarosa and Roman Chamomile essential oils which also have benefits for skin.

I use it as a night treatment on damp skin. A little goes a long way, 2 drops is enough for my entire face and neck. It helps lock in moisture and leaves my skin supple and smooth.

 
Mossa Glow Cocktail Illuminating Anti-Pigmentation Serum sample

A juicy team of berries that deliver an instant smoothness and brightness. Formulated with vitamin C-rich Nordic cloudberry and quince, this Illuminating Anti-Pigmentation Serum promotes a brighter and smoother complexion. The lightweight formula instantly improves the skin’s texture and reduces the appearance of pigmentation spots caused by ageing, sun exposure and environmental stressors. The serum illuminates and refines your skin, leaving it bright, smooth and silky.

25ml | £13

This serum promises to improve skin texture, brighten and smooth the skin, and reduce the appearance of pigmentation spots. Just what I need!

The consistency is light and silky and it smells like a sweet and fruity cocktail. I only managed to get 2 uses out of the sample, it leaves a smooth matte finish on the skin once it dries. I will consider trying the full size to see how it performs over time.
