Look what came in the post this week! Yes, it is the final LoveLula Beauty Box of 2017! Brought to my door by a jolly fella in a red coat with a beard. No, Father Christmas hasn’t been to my house early, it was my trusty, chirpy postie!
Look at that stunner of a box! Three full sized products and 5 samples in total, this month’s box is worth £58! For £13.95! Proper spoilt just in time for Christmas. And a coupon for 20% off any products by any of the brands in the box.
The largest and most expensive product in the box is the Madara SOS Instant Moisture + Radiance Hydra Mask (60ml) which retails for £35 alone! I love masks but I’ve never tried this mask before… I did try their Peel AHA mask from a previous box, but it wasn’t for me. So I was thinking this mask might be similar and not work with my skin. But this one is super gentle, no stinging. It contains, among a multitude of yummy natural ingredients, hyaluronic acid which my skin just loves. I tried it pretty much immediately and I can tell you I noticed a difference right away. After taking the mask off my face was plumped, hydrated, smoothed and my pores appeared much smaller. I’m looking forward to using it again as it felt so good. I might be tempted to leave it on as an overnight mask, which the literature does suggest you can do. Oh and it is vegan too! Check back: I’m using this mask for the second time now, it’s delightful!
Next we have the PHB Ethical Beauty Liquid Eyeliner in Black (4.5ml). This has a lovely fine and flexible brush tip and looks pretty easy to use. I haven’t tried it but I will update back once I have. I’m not the best with a winged eyeliner since my eye shape turns down and in at the edge and my eyelids are hooded! But I will definitely line the top lash line and let you know of how well this wears. It’s all natural, cruelty free (of course), vegan and halal, as are all PHB products and it’s worth £12.95. Check back: I wore the liner for work today. Went on evenly, opaquely and dried with a slight shine finish, not matte. Didn’t budge all day but super easy to remove in the evening.
Onto the PHB Ethical Beauty Lip Liner in Peach (4g). This lip liner is super creamy, pigmented, glides on really easily and lasts well on the lips. Worth £8.95 and with 20% of all PHB profits going to charity, this is a beautiful dusky peach shade which can be worn alone all over the lips or under lipstick. I didn’t own a peach shade until now and I’m super happy it’s this one in the box!
Three samples from UrbanVeda. I’m looking forward to trying the facial oil, but the other two do contain some ingredients I usually do avoid in my facial skincare. However they do look to be packed with fruit and botanical extracts. I might give them a go or pass them on.
Another mask now in the form of a sample of the Dr Hauschka Hydrating Cream Mask. Looks like nice ingredients here, but does contain beeswax and lanolin if those are ingredients you prefer to avoid. I have never tried any products from Dr Hauschka before, and I’ll let you know what I think in an upcoming Empties post.
And the final sample in the box is a new brand to LoveLula. The Mossa range is based on the vitamin formulae of organic Nordic berries. I really like the sound of this range and the front of the packaging tells you which berries the products contain and which active acids. The Mossa Miracle Peel contains black elder antioxidants and natural AHA. I’m a bit apprehensive to try this as it contains lactic acid, which I’m sure I have been sensitive to in the past, but not as much as glycolic acid which my skin will not tolerate. So I might be brave and give it a try, it’s only a sample!
What a great selection of products! Masks and makeup… my favourites. I will definitely be keeping up my subscription in 2018, even though one of my New Years Resolutions will be to buy only things I need and love, this is always a great way of trying products and shopping smarter.
If you have received this box do let me know what you think in the comments. Hope you have a great Christmas! Love Em 💖
