My gracious goodness! There are only a few days left in 2020 and this will be my last first impression of Love Lula Beauty Box for the year of 2020 – a year, which most of us would rather just forget in some shape or form. I find it incredible how quickly this year has gone by, even if mostly dealing with the same situation, over and over again, and, in my case, coupled with heath issues, Love Lula’s Beauty Box has been that monthly surprise of familiarity – as much of a contradiction this may sound. Receiving it every month carried that feeling of how things used to be and how I wish things would have been, again, in the future. This month’s Love Lula Beauty Box features 3 full sized products in a shape of one face night cream, one hand & feet cream, newly launched scent from Walden Perfumes in a rollerball oil, two travel sized liquid soaps and two feed cream samples. A total value of this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box is £50,00, but with a yearly subscription, you can get it for a fraction, barely worth mentioning, of it.
So, what’s in this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box?
♥ Walden Natural Perfumes Tonic of Wilderness Rollerball (1oml/£17,00). I just adore the whole concept around Walden Natural Perfumes – the excuisite natural ingredients, which are interpreting Thoreau’s Walden through unique scents. The newly launched “Tonic of Wilderness” main note is peppery, with a hint of orange and a bit of ylang ylang, there, at the end and after that, a very distant hint of iris, which prevails after a while… I can see how it can be both for women and men… Unique scent, indeed. I see a green meadow, a few trees and a scent of fresh water somewhere behind the trees… Such are these Walden Natural Perfume scents, they always take me someplace called “We can never have enough of nature.”
♥ Soul Tree Hand & Foot Cream (10oml/£14,03). This is my first time trying something from Soul Tree brand. This cream is fitting for the Winter times, as it’s quite rich in texture and has a herb/spicy scent. As it taken a bit longer to absorb and given its richness, I think this cream falls under a “home spa treatment” category; I think its purpose comes to light after a long hot bath, applied, richly, on feet and then covered with a warm Winter socks and, likewise, applied richly on hands and covered with a pair of moisturizing gloves. Quite a generous amount, which should last throughout the Winter.
♥ The Castilian Soap Company Liquid Soap Travel Duo (2x5oml/2x£4,50). I received the fragrance free liquid soap back in September 2018 Love Lula Beauty Box; this time around, there are two travel sized liquid soaps – one is, again, fragrance free and the other deliciously smelling Lavender one. Of course, I still have the rose scented one on my wishlist, the full sized one, of course. I don’t understand the steep cost of these 50ml soaps, though.
♥ Ayumi Night Cream (5oml/£8,99). While the smooth texture, fast absorbtion and quite a number of good ingredients (such as almond oil, turmeric extract, papaya fruit extract and peptites, for example) might sway this cream into a good territory, there are too many ingredients, which make this cream a firm no in my view, starting with comedogenic Isopropyl Myristate, followed by phenoxyethanol and finally – the Hexyl Cinnamal – the source of immediately noticeable perfumed scent/ingredient of this cream (I’ve raised as issue with this artificial source of scent years ago when I reviewed one of this brand’s creams).
♥ Kiss the Moon Foot Cream Samples (full size 9og/£26,00).
So this concludes my first impressions of this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box. The theme of this month’s Beauty Box is “rich creamy textures” with a mixture of newly launched perfumed roll-on oil, a night cream, hand & foot cream and liquid soaps and a sample of foot cream.
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!
