It may be still Winter officially, but with very warm, sunny weather, birdies chirping as they’re mating and flowers already popping up everywhere – Spring is right around the corner and anticipated as rarely before. My health is still far from optimal, but my hope and faith override these stepbacks. And seeing my Love Lula Beauty Box arriving every month helps, too. I wouldn’t wander too off the course if I said this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box is a bit… different? I think the theme of the Beauty Box, as far as the care categories of the products go, is maybe what sets this Beauty Box apart from previous ones? I named the theme of February’s Beauty Box “happy shinny
people teeth and hair” as the products are focused on hair and teeth/oral care with two shampoos, a conditioner, a hair brush, a tooth brush and a tooth paste. Quite a curious selection, wouldn’t you agree? The total value of this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box is £39,00, but with a yearly subscription, you can get it for a fraction of it.
So, what’s in this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box?
♥ Naturtint Shampoo & Conditioner Bar (75g/£12,99). Another new product available at Love Lula – a shampoo and conditioner all in one – one bar. Most certainly a very handy choice for travel. There are currently three variations of these bars; I got the orange one, for strengthening and revitalizing the hair. The scent is a lovely gentle orange. I was curious and had to try this one immediately; and despite trying quite a few shampoo bars, I think I am still learning how to properly use them. I rinsed the hair and massaged the hair with the shampoo bar, until a good lathering was achieved. The bar cleanses the hair nicely and, given it’s also a conditioner, makes them soft and easily managable. I’m liking this shampoo and conditioner bar, though, as with any shampoo bar so far, the downside of it is it’s not as handy and it’s more time consuming than using regular, usual, conventional, if you will, liquid shampoo. The price of this bar is not all that low, either.
♥ Bass Brushes Bio-Flex Style & Detangle Brush (1 piece/£15,99). Another newly launched product at Love Lula along with being a pleasant surprise in the Beauty Box. This is quite an interesting hair brush: a handle made from cornstarch and pins made of wood. It does, indeed, glide through the hair and it’s so easy to use on a wet hair, especially while having conditioner or a hair mask applied. Made me curious about trying several other products from this brand the Bass Brushes.
♥ WooBamboo Toothbrush and Toothpaste (1 piece/£4,49; full size 75ml/£6,99). I’ve seen and tried a few of such toothbrushes over the years. Sure, the ethos behind it makes it appealing, so does the fact that, indeed, billions of plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year therefore this presents an issue. But the main issue I’ve had with every toothbrush such as this? It’s just not good. A handle of a toothbrush – it can be as bamboo and biodegradable as can be, if the bristles are not of a high if not the highest quality, then it’s all for nothing. I’ve been using Curaprox oral hygiene products, and especially their toothbrushes, for longer than I can remember and it will remain like this for, I suspect, a long long time. The quality of a toothbrush is just not something I can or would compromise on.
♥ Sukin Natural Balance Shampoo and Conditioner (full size 500mlg/£9,99; full size500mlg/£9,99). I’ve tried quite a good number of Sukin hair products over the years, but so far I haven’t tried one that would really impress me – this travel sized duo of shampoo and conditioner included. It takes a lot of shampoo to start its engine, the lather is nearly non-existent and the hair feels kinda hard after rinsing off the shampoo. Conditioner may be a bit better than shampoo, but much like shampoo lack that oomph factor: it just doesn’t condition my hair the way I want to and leaves the hair feeling and looking a bit let down.
So this concludes my first impressions of this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box. The theme of this month’s Beauty Box is “happy shinny
people teeth and hair” with one full sized shampoo & conditioner bar, a travel-sized shampoo and conditioner, a hair brush, a toothbrush and a travel-sized toothpaste. Curiously different Beauty Box than previous ones, right?
And all these products have a total value of £39,00 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!
