I keep on focusing on an old normal, bypassing, aside from wearing a mask in public closed spaces, nearly any thought of what is being thrown around as the new normal. The weather is, aside from April-like showers, getting warmer and warmer, I am enjoying the work around my country house, long walks in the forest and receiving my lovely and always generous Love Lula Beauty Box – it has been such a glue to old normal and I appreciate it so much, even more than ever before. This month’s Love Lula Beauty Box contains 3 full sized products  and 1 travel-sized product – checking all the categories: makeup in a form of lip crayon, body care in a form of soap bar, hair care in a form of shampoo and face care in a form of face cleanser, with a total value of £50, but you can get it for a fraction of that with a subscription.

So, what’s in this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box?

Love Lula Beauty Box May 2020

Inika Lip Crayon (3g/£19,50). Ah, I remember when Inika new lip crayons came out and I put them on my wishlist, but haven’t had a chance to get around to getting at least one! Until Love Lula included one of them in my Beauty Box. The color (deep plum) is rich in its color: plum, yes, with a splash of a copper mauve and brownish tone under it all – this is how I see this color. The texture is that of a high quality nourishing and softening lip product: so creamy, so soft and the color pigmented with a long staying power. Easily applying in a combination with lips as a blush as well – paint the lip crayon on your hands and then apply it with your finger on your cheeks. Deliciously looking! This is a rich and overpowering color; I’d suggest a very minimal makeup when wearing this one: bright look around the eyes, very little to no mascara. Hmm… wish a sharpener would be included.

Love Lula Beauty Box May 2020

Madara Soap Bar (150g/£6,50). No matter how often Madara is featured in Love Lula Beauty Boxes and no matter how many Madara products I order, I never seem to “just there” where I feel I am running along with having as many Madara products as there are on my wishlist or as they’ve launched (case in point, they’ve just launched Anti collection and I am eyeing more or less of them). This heavy soap is is a creamy and soft treat for the hands (can be used as a body soap as well). It smells of a lemon, dipped in melissa and lost in a pine wood – there could easily be a scent of tea tree hidden somewhere, even though it does not contain it. Its refreshing scent is suitable for both women as well a men.

Love Lula Beauty Box May 2020

Ayumi Hibiscus & Turmeric Shampoo (250ml/£6,99). I am a bit floating in the middle when it comes to this one. The shampoo smells nice – and the scent lasts for a good day. The texture is of a thicker gel, it spreads evenly on the hair, and creates a rich creamy lather, cleansing the hair thoroughly – and that probably due to quite a heavy working detergent Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, of which I can’t say I am all that fond of – my scalp has not reacted (so far), but skin on my forehead did with a few bumps.

Love Lula Beauty Box May 2020

Skin Alchemists Humble Warrior Cleansing Oil (30ml/£15,00). Can you believe I’ve managed to control my curiosity and kept this oil unopened and thus not having it tested yet? Well, if I tell you I did the same to Skin Alchemists Facial Elixir which I got in one of my previous Love Lula Beauty Boxes, then you’ll believe it. I will dedicate a time to test these two and post a review, I promise. I need to thoroughly test and enjoy these pricey products and with so many other products using and testing, I am just not able to delve into these two the way I think they (and you, my readers) deserve. It is quite pricey, this cleanser…

So this concludes my first impressions of this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box. The theme of this month’s Beauty Box is a mixture of “taking care of you from head to toe” with products covering all the cares – face, body, hair and makeup. I like all the products I’ve tried (for now, I’ve skipped the pricey oil cleanser), sans that one ingredient in the shampoo.

And all these products have a total value of £50,00 whereas the actual cost of the yearly Love Lula Beauty Box subscription is £12,66 (or £16,60 for international customers) per month (yep, even less than it was before). You also get a discount on all the brands featured in a current Beauty Box for 20% off!

Alteya Organics Rose & Mullein Collection Review: Cleanser, Toner and Serum

Alteya Organics Rose & Mullein Collection boasts of affordable yet effective face care treats in a form of face cleanser, toner and serum – all containing Alteya’s signature rose oil, and accompanied with a gentle and lovely scent. The first thing that comes to mind when hearing about Alteya Organics is rose oil – their rose oil of the highest quality. And their high quality floral waters/hydrolates, which I’ve been using for quite some time now and my skin feels delighted. But Alteya Organics are evolving and developing new products on a regular basis and so far, all the products I’ve tried from this brand, I’ve enjoyed them a great deal and have many, if not most of their products […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #6

These past months have surely been strange; so many things that used to be a part of some continuous schedule have, by some weird reasons, fallen aside… including reporting on my current skincare routines. I thought it’s time to slowly get back on track with all the things which are, one way or the other, important to me. My current morning skincare routine is somewhere in between seasons, with a Summer season becoming more and more overpowering: hydrolates are, of course, still present, the mask are quick pick me ups, serums are more on a creamy-side based, at least one face oil is a must, in this edition of my morning skincare routine it’s the lovely raspberry oil… The links […]

Random Thoughts #9

  What I’ve been up to? I am not quite certain, but I’ve been feeling quite lethargic these past few months. Not as energetic as usually. And have been dealing with aches I haven’t previously. In short, I haven’t been feeling well on its own, combined with the world wide situation of this virus, I can’t report feeling all too good lately. I needed to save my energy and deal with only the most necessary things lately, therefore my blog has been less updated than I would have wished, but I can’t force it. I am not too worried, as I have more ideas than I can keep up with, so once I am back on track, so will be […]

Love Lula Beauty Box April 2020

Ah, the strangeness and weirdness of the state of the world continues… Even more so than usually or ever, our thoughts escape into the comfortable nostalgic thinking of how it used to be… just a few months ago! I thought that April Love Lula Beauty Box might arrive (substantially) later due to the world circumstances – but it arrived on time! If last month’s Love Lula Beauty Box was a source of familiarity, it was so much more this month. And I’ve been really liking all the featured products; 4 full sized ones, 3 being face care products and one being a body care product and a sample sachet, with a total value of £57, but you can get it […]
