I’ve been a big fan of the LoveLula Beauty Box for a number of years now. I always look forward to exciting, new products delivered to my door every month! I have discovered lots of amazing natural brands and products over the years.

It’s time to share February’s LoveLula Beauty Box .

This month’s box features full-sized products from MY.Haircare, Laidbare, Ooh! Oils of Heaven and a trial size from Ayumi Naturals with a total value of £44.

Monthly recurring subscription costs £14.95 and you can also try one box for £19.95

There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 25% off the brands featured in the box.

 

What’s in the box:

 

Laidbare For Richer For Porer ‘Miracle’ Mask (50ml | £7.99)

Masque your imperfections and reduce your pores with this cleansing and hydrating facial masque.  

Kaolin Clay draws out impurities and toxins, Japanese Seaweed Extract detoxifies and smoothes the skin, Shea Butter gives hydration and conditions skin, whilst Liquorice helps minimise inflammation and Rosewater soothes irritation.  

Ingredients:

Aqua Kaolin Caprylic/capric Triglyceride Isopropyl Myristate Glycerin Glyceryl Stearate SE Cetearyl Glucoside Cetearyl Alcohol Zea Mays Cob Powder Butyrospermum Parkii Butter Benzyl Alcohol Limonene Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Peel Oil Panthenol Illicium Verum Oil Citrus Nobilis Peel Oil Xanthan Gum Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil Dehydroacetic Acid Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Sodium Benzoate Glycyrrhiza Glabra Extract Potassium Sorbate Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract Laminaria Japonica Extract Pantolactone Linalool Rosa Damascena Flower oil Citric Acid

An old favourite that has featured a few times in previous boxes. The consistency is creamy with tiny exfoliating granules. It smells of liquorice, which I really like.

I apply to dry cleansed skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then I gently massage the granules to buff away dead skin cells and rinse with warm water. My skin feels cleansed, soft and smooth.

You can also apply to any spots you have and leave it on overnight.

 
Rescue My. Hair™ Pollution Patrol Shampoo Bar (80g | £13.95)

Hand Made Luxury Shampoo Bar that cleanses hair leaving hair and scalp refreshed and revitalized.  With a soap-free wellness formulation, soft fragrance and sustainable solutions for your ultimate sensory experience.

Ingredients:

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Aqua, Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate, Coconut Acid, Parfum, Glycerin, Sodium Isethionate, Illite, Alpha isomethyl ionon, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Linalool, Eugenol, Benzyl salicylate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Potassium Sorbate

If you’re trying to ditch the plastic and make the switch from liquid shampoo, this shampoo in a bar is a great option.

  • Handmade and cold pressed
  • Waterless Technology
  • Gentle Neutral PH 5.5
  • Free from sulphates, parabens and silicones
  • No Sodium Hydroxide or Lye
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan friendly
  • Biodegradable
  • Features a gentle cucumber & violet scent

To use: wet hair first. Rather than rubbing the bar onto the hair, wet the bar and build a gentle lather on your hands. Then massage into the hair and scalp. Rinse thoroughly. As I live in a hard water area, a slight residue remains so I finish off with an apple cider vinegar rinse.

It leaves my hair nice and clean without feeling dry and a tangled mess!

Afterwards I apply conditioner as usual. You can use the box to store the bar between uses.

Deeply cleanse with our Turmeric Face Scrub, packed with exfoliating Bamboo Powder to gently buff away dead skin cells and impurities. This unique formulation is infused with invigorating Papaya Extract, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Argan Oil and Bergamot Oil to leave your skin feeling clean, smooth and soft.

Packed with revitalising botanicals, this gentle yet effective facial scrub is set to enhance vitality for dry, dehydrated and dull complexions, whilst helping those with hyperpigmentation by balancing skin tone.

With anti-inflammatory turmeric extract, healing papaya, antioxidant-rich Avocado Oil and restorative Argan, this luxurious exfoliator is a treat to both the skin and the senses.

This face scrub has a soft, creamy texture with ultrafine bamboo powder to cleanse and buff away dead skin cells.

I like to use this twice a week. I apply to damp cleansed skin and massage in circular motions. It is really gentle but effectively removes dull dead skin cells, decongests blocked pores and improves circulation.

After rinsing my skin feels super soft, smooth and brighter.

 
Ooh! Oils of Heaven Natural Raspberry Repairing Face Oil (30ml | £19)
Raspberry Seed Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, possessing a superior anti-inflammatory quality, making it perfect for for acne prone skin. It is also nature’s answer for dehydrated and sensitive skin. Being an occlusive, easily absorbed oil it helps protect against moisture loss and improving skin elasticity.
Ingredients:

100% Rubus idaeus seed oil.

I’m always excited to try the latest oil from Ooh! Raspberry seed oil is packed full of nutrients and is a little miracle worker.

Raspberry seed oil contains:

  • Vitamin E – helps minimise wrinkles, tackle loss of elasticity and hyper-pigmentation.
  • Antioxidants which help improve skin tone and elasticity.
  • Omega 3 and 6, which are essential fatty acids and which help the skin’s natural barrier to function well. Omega oils work to carry moisture deep into the skin for long-lasting hydration. They reduce redness and condition and protect. They also help the skin to repair itself, and are super-soothing.

I love the consistency of this oil – light, non-greasy and does not clog my pores. It absorbs very quickly and leaves my skin nourished and super smooth.

 
Laidbare DIY! Two In One Cleanser & Toner 30ml travel size
full size 125ml | £6.99

A no nonsense cleanser & toner in one that even removes your eye make-up!

With Liquorice and Aloe Vera for exceptional anti-bacterial properties that reduce inflammation, tone and strengthen the skin. Apple Secrets Extract helps protect your skin cells and Brazil Nut Extract is a valuable antioxidant working hard to condition, nourish and repair.

Ingredients:

Aqua Sodium Coco-Sulfate Cocamidopropyl Betaine Decyl Glucoside Sodium Chloride Glycerin Benzl Alcohol Coco-Glucoside Limonene Citrus Limon Peel Oil Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate Citrus Aurantfolia Seed Oil Parfum Sucrose Laurate Lauryl Glucoside Dehydroacetic Acid Tocopherol Citric Acid Alcohol Sodium Citrate Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice Citral Sodium Benzoate Sorbic Acid Punica Granatum Extract Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract Bertholletia Excelsa Seed Extract Pyrus Malus Fruit Extract Potassium Sorbate

Another Laidbare favourite I’ve tried several times. I just love how affordable and effective their products are.

This is a clear gel cleanser with a refreshing citrus scent. It feels gentle while giving my skin a thorough cleanse.

After rinsing my skin feels clean and refreshed without feeling stripped or dry.

 

Another great box this month.  I look forward to seeing what goodies we get next month!
