July has been a super busy month for me, I can’t believe it’s the start of August tomorrow.
Here is my review of July’s LoveLula Beauty Box .
The Beauty Box is a great way to try out different natural beauty brands. They offer various subscription options, so there is something to suit everyone.
July’s box features products from The Castilian Soap Company, Balm Balm, Laidbare and Urban Veda.
The total value of this month’s box is £46. There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 20% off the brands featured in the box.
Let’s have a look at what’s in this month’s box….
The Castilian Soap Company – Limited Edition Natural Castile Soap with Tea Tree Essential Oil (250ml | £8)
Our Natural Castile Soap with Tea Tree Essential Oil is a true liquid soap made from an organic castile soap base with natural vegetable oils of the finest quality. Enriched with Tea Tree Oil, a known natural antiseptic, this soap is particularly suitable for skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis.
Aqua, Potassium Oleate, Potassium Cocoate, Glycerin, Melaleuca alternifolia oil, Citric Acid, d-Limonene*
*Naturally occurring in essential oils.
How to use:
Pump onto hands and work into a lather under mildly warm water. Rinse off completely when hands are clean.
I love castile soap as it is amazingly versatile. I use it as a hand and body wash, washing up and all purpose cleaning spray, floor cleaner, laundry detergent, makeup brush cleaner, shaving cream and the list goes on…
I’ve enjoyed using Castile soap from The Castilian Soap Company and this Tea tree version is great for its added antiseptic properties. The consistency is slightly thick, a little goes a long way to create a lather.
As a hand and body wash it is soothing and antibacterial. I love how clean and soft my skin feels after using this.
Balm Balm Rose Floral Water Hydrosol (30ml | £8.50)
This beautifully fragrant Rose Flower Water is wonderfully versatile. Use it as a gentle toner or simply as an all over freshener or ‘pick me up’.
The beautiful fragrance of Rose is soothing & balancing & is reputed to help you to love yourself and to dispel anger.
All organically grown. Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Distillate.
I love using rosewater as a soothing and refreshing spritz and also to mix my powder face masks. Balm Balm’s Rose floral water hydrosol is beautifully fragrant and uplifts my mood.
I like to store mine in the fridge when the weather is hot as it feels wonderfully cooling on my skin. It helps to calm, soothe and hydrate my skin. It is also perfect as a makeup finishing spray.
This handy size is perfect to pop into my bag and refresh my skin on the go.
Laidbare Butter Me Up Organic Shea Body Butter (50ml | £10)
A delicious concoction of Cocoa Butter, Avocado Oil and Rose Hip Oil, this thick and creamy body butter is a sheer delight to use. The intense healing properties of the Shea Butter together with the therapeutic effects of the Avocado Oil creates a rich moisturising experience that is indulgent beyond measure to encourage renewed, glowing, soft and supple skin.
Butter Me Up is fragranced with Laidbare’s 100% natural signature scent of jasmine, bergamot, patchouli and vertiver to promote relaxation and sensually lift the mood – all through the holistic powers of wild flowers.
Now in a handy on the go size!

Butter me up has a light, smooth, whipped texture that spreads easily on the skin. What I love most about it is how quick it absorbs into the skin, you don’t have to keep rubbing for a long time till it fully absorbs.
It leaves my skin super soft and moisturised without any greasy residue and the scent is like a floral bouquet that lingers delicately on the skin.
UrbanVeda Soothing Clarifying Night Cream (50ml | £19.99)
Plump, renew and repair overnight with deeply moisturising Sandalwood, harmonising Ylang Ylang and balancing Palmarosa in our Soothing Clarifying Night Cream.

The consistency of this cream is light and silky smooth. It hydrates the skin without leaving it greasy. I’m not too keen on the smell and much prefer using facial oils at night so I’ve given it to my hubby.
Another great box this month. Thanks LoveLula!
Until next time,
