This month’s Love Lula Beauty Box had arrived after the start of Summer – yep, it’s Summer already. In some strange way, I feel like I’m still stuck in previous Christmas time, or at least – somewhere in Winter, given what happened in Spring, thus having a feeling like Spring didn’t even happen… Strange, I know, that’s why I have a monthly reminder that things are not as different and that somehow, we’ll all get back to normal, old normal. And this reminder is Love Lula Beauty Box. I think there hasn’t been one Beauty Box this year that I didn’t like; all the products in Beauty Boxes from 2020 have been right on time, and quite versatile as far as covering face care, body care, hair care and makeup. The June Love Lula Beauty Box is no different, as it contains 4 full sized products, one a face care product (or – if you wish – an all around care product) and 3 body care products. A total value of this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box is £63,00 but with a yearly subscription, you can get it for a fraction of that – all the info at the end of this post.
So what’s in this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box?
♥ Oils of Heaven Plum Face Oil (30ml/£19,00). We’re getting quite spoiled by Oils of Heaven and their launching of new carrier oils as often as they do, aren’t we? Not too long ago (in fact, in February), OOH launched the wonderful Raspberry Oil, and now we get another fruity carrier oil – Plum carrier oil. Wonderful! The texture is a bit thicker than that of Raspberry, for example, but that does not effect the absorption as it’s quick. Very little goes a long way (even longer way if you mix it with the many other wonderful OOH oils – go ahead, indulge yourself). I just love the feeling on my face in the morning after the skin had all night the time to absorb this wonderful oil: soft, less bumpy… And the scent is quite interesting as well… I think it reminds me of a dry plums. Sweet. Sugary. Fruity. Gotta do a post dedicated to the many (more) Oils of Heaven oils I’ve been lucky to collect since I’ve reviewed their Cacay and Moringa oils…
♥ Kathleen Natural Citrus Cheer Bubble Bath & Shower Gel (150ml/£18,00). Thanks to Love Lula, I’ve now had a chance to try 4 body care products from this UK brand – 2 body oils and now 2 bath/shower gels, and the luxurious indulgence of all of them, but especially the scent, has left an impression on me. This shower gel is, just like the previous Lavender one, feels nice and smells even nicer (and for a third even nicer – it pairs wonderfully with Kathleen Natural Rose Body Oil) – citrus scent is quite powerful at the beginning, following by a gentle breeze of geranium. Lovely, yes, but, gotta say about this one as well – too pricey.
♥ Humble by Nature Sweet Pea & Verbena Hand Cream (75ml/£8,00). Right on time, double right on time at that! As we’re washing (and using mostly alcohol based sanitizers) our hands even more often than usually and thus in a dire need of of a nourishing, hydrating hand cream, which (and here comes the reason for the double right on time part) absorbs under a minute, does not leave any sticky or greasy feeling behind – and important aspect given it’s Summer – , just velvety soft, nourished and hydrated hands, which (and that’s a bonus) smell luxuriously of a mixture of feminine floral and a distant citrusy. The name of the brand may be Humble, but the texture, the nourishment, quick absorption and gorgeous scent are anything but. OK, the price given how wonderful this hand cream is may be the other humble part, but that’s about it.
♥ Elsa’s Organic Skinfoods Detox Natural Deodorant (60g/£18,00). I’ve had a chance to try a few deodorants from this UK brand and wrote a review, so I was quite curious to try this one – especially since it promises quite a lot. It’s an activated charcoal based deodorant – promoting a detox process. Magnesium oxide and Corn Silk Starch lessen perspiration (lessen, not eliminate). There’s quite a number of refreshing scent sources, such as lemon, lemongrass and neroli. The texture of this deodorant is quite hard/solid and difficult to apply to the gentle skin under arms – that’s a docked point for the deodorant. But at the same time, given how sturdy and non-creamy it is, it leaves no greasy residue, and does not feel sticky. Or even visible. The scent, gentle and subtle, lasts for quite some time, so does a limited perspiration. Interesting formulation, texture and performance, have to say, but I’ll need to do some more testing before I say my final word. Oh, the price? Entirely too high, especially given this is a product that’s used every day, a lot and is an essential and such high price is the reason why I still haven’t tried a deodorant from some other brand, which has an unreasonably high price for it.
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 “nourish the body while smelling nicely” with a newly launched wonderful Plum carrier oil. I like all the products I’ve tried – this Beauty Box is deliciously smelling, indeed. I am side-eying the (too) high price for the deodorant, though.
And all these products have a total value of £63,00 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!
