Love Lula Beauty Box February 2018



Hi Lovelies,



Welcome back! And if you are new here, welcome 💕💕💕

GREEN LIFE IN DUBLIN
Love Lula Beauty Box 2018



I am excited to share with you my second Love Lula beauty box this year from the same online green beauty store. They ship worldwide, and the price is 13.95£ monthly recurring for UK customers, and for us international gals there are two options of three months (52.50£) or a year (210£) including post and packaging. Green beauty boxes are a great way to discover new items you might have missed otherwise, and I love that anything coming from LoveLula is cruelty free and guaranteed not to have any toxic ingredients - they have very strict criteria for any product they accept, and that is taking the guesswork off your shoulders. 

So let's see what's in our second 2018 box? By the way, don't forget to check out my interview with the owner and co-founder Sonia White as a part of my Natural Beauties segment here. I still can't believe Sonia said yes!


Psst, I will tell you one secret - after a couple of weeks of releasing their Beauty Boxes, Love Lula is giving them away for free with any orders above £60, so keep your eyes peeled! Also know that you can buy their previous month's boxes at a very reasonable prices - you will see them under "Special Offers" tab on the website. But I am getting a little ahead of myself here :)

So, shall we take a look at what's in this month's box? I thought you would never ask!



One of the three full sized products for this month, and this product alone retails for over 24£ - so the box is well worth getting, isn't it? We are getting a lot of Madara products in the beauty boxes, and as someone who is always excited to test new green beauty brands and products, I am glad. I have collected quite a number of Madara products, both via beauty box and bought with my own money, so expect a review coming your way soon. Fingers crossed everything will suit me, I would be happy to support this Latvian brand.

Ingredients:
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin***, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Aqua, Sucrose Laurate Esters, Sucrose Palmitate, Ethano, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Aroma, Tocopherol (VitaminE), Talc, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel OĂŻl*, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Oil*, CI77019 (Mica)****, CI77499. CI77491,CI77492 (Iron Oxides)****, CI77891 (Titanium Dioxide)****, Linalool**, Limonene** * Ingredients from organic farming ** Natural Essential Oils *** Made using organic ingredients **** Pure mineral pigments



That's second full sized product in this box. I've got Reviving one, but I know some other people got RadianceSoothing, Purifying ones. I have had this in the past, and unfortunately it was too harsh on my sensitive skin. I have tried four full sized products from this brand before, and none suited my sensitive skin. I passed them all to my daughter, who has normal skin, and she didn't like any of the products too, saying they dried out her skin too much. I think the products have too much alcohol for us to handle, so for that reason I will pass on this brand. Be my guest if your skin is different, but be mindful if you are sensitive like me. I know many people who love and enjoy Urban Veda, but I am not one of them, so this toner is going into "pass it on" basket. It does not mean it's a bad product, it simply means it's not for me. 

Ingredients:
Aqua, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, PPG-1-PEG-9 Lauryl Glycol Ether, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Terminalia Arjuna Bark Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Lycium Chinense (Goji berry) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Pogostemom Cablin (Patchouli) Oil, Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Seed Oil, Cedrus Atlantica Bark (Cedar) Oil, Tagetes Minuta Flower (Marigold) Oil, Parfum, Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Sodium Phytate, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Limonene, Linalool, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Alpha-isomethyl Ionone.


Ingredients: 100% Persea Gratissima Oil. Duh! 

Ooh brand came out with this brand new oil and the beauty box subscribers get to try it first! And we goet full size of it. This retails for 19£ on it's own, so you are doubling and tripling the value you paid for this box. Cool, or what?  What's makes it different from other oils is that it is pressed from cold pressed from the Avocado pulp. Organic Avocado oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D and E and can thus provide your skin with deep hydration and protection. And it is organic too! I have used and loved avocado oil in the past, so I know this will be put to good use, if not for my face, then for my hair and body too, diluted in some other oils.


This was on my Love Lula wishlist, so I am really happy to get a chance to try this, as this deluxe sample size will provide enough product to see if it's for me. The official blurb: containing a ground-breaking 27 active certified organic ingredients and naturally rich in vitamins and antioxidants, Pure & Light Organic's Essential Face Cream deeply penetrates the skin to enhance blood circulation, support oxygenation and collagen production and promote supple younger looking skin.

Rich in anti-oxidants, flavonoids and Vitamins A, B, C and E, Pure & Light Organic's Essential Face Cream works to harmonise oil production, calm redness and irritation, improve skin's moisture retention, regenerate skin damage by harsh UV rays and actively counter fine lines, wrinkles and the early signs of ageing.

Ingredients:
Spring water (Aqua), Sunflower (Helianthus annuus)*, Glyceryl Monostearate, Vegetable Gyceryne*, Sweet Almond (Prunus amygdalus)*, Apricot-Kernel (Prunus armeniaca)*, Cetyl Alcohol, Olive (Olea europea)*, Shea Butter (Butyrospernum Parkii)*, Cocoa butter (Cocos nucifera)*, Vitamin E*, Phenoxyethanol-ethylhexyglycerin, Distillates of Orange Blossom (Citrus Aurantium Fleur)*, Rose Damask (Rosa Damascena)*, Geranium (Pelargonium Asperum)*, Ylang-Ylang (Canaga Odara Extra)*, Palmorosa (Cymbopogon Martinii)*.

I have to say I am excited for this! As I mentioned, this was on my wishlist anyway, so I was chuffed to see it in this box. For now it is going into my fridge, as I am testing Bella Aura products (working on a review), and my skin protests wildly if I mix too many products at once. I want to give this my undivided attention when the time comes, not to mix it in too many products at once. A lot of other products from this line are on my wishlist, so I will keep you posted. I plan to do a brand overview and a few products review some time in the future.

So, all in all I am happy with this month's box - this provided us with three full size products, so you are more than tripling your money here - this box is worth whopping 65£! Even if I can't use one of the products myself, I'll take that. One of my girlfriends surely will be up for it. Let's not forget there is always 20% off coupon for the brands featured that month, so that gives you substantial additional savings too. 

I think this is a great way to switch your products to clean products without spending a fortune if you are only starting out your green beauty journey. Even if you are advanced in it, it is always fun to discover something new, isn't it?  I know I still love getting new products, nearly ten years in into my green beauty journey I still get excited getting boxes in the mail. What about you?
