What better way to start a month then to get some beauty products through the post! What’s even better is when they are cruelty free, green and clean. Step in the fantastic Love Lula. At the end of 2016 I started to get their beauty box and I’m so gland I did, I haven’t been disappointed yet. Like most months, March’s box was outstanding, with products from three brands I knew and one I had never heard of which is always exciting. It costs £12.50 and the value of each box is always way over that. This month’s was £40!!!
Containing 100% natural essential oils of Jersey Lavender to soothe and relax and exotic Ylang Ylang to balance the mind and ease tension. This was the brand I had never heard of and while excited by new brands I was a bit nervous of this one as I thought the scent may have been too overpowering as Lavender can be really strong and I’m not a fan of Ylang Ylang. I am not fond of highly scented products as they make me sneeze so I stay clear of them. I had no need to worry. This is just a really lovely delicate clean lavender that doesn’t blow your head off and the ylang ylang is faint. I really loved it and will look into the brand more.
Really lovely gentle mask with Kaolin Clay and Japanese Seaweed Extract . The Kaoline draws out impurities and toxins and the seaweed detoxifies and smooths the skin. It also contains Shea Butter which leaves the skin nicely moisturised. There are tiny exfoliating particles which are very gentle so don’t leave your skin red raw, just nicely sloughs off the dead and dried skin that may have built up on our face.
PHB is a British family run business who high beauty products made using 100% naturally derived ingredients that don’t cost the earth. Cruelty free & Vegan.
I have used a few PHB products before and have like what I have used in the past. This hand cream is a really nice texture and made my hands feel lovely. Unfortunately the smell is just not for me. I got the neroli and ylang ylang and it is very strong. Not for me only because of the scent so I will pass this on to someone it doesn’t bother so much.
I love Hurraw! lipbalms and they are a staple in my makeup bag, hand bag and kit. This one smells amazing and as all the others is really moisturising. This is in part due to the papaya seed oil with is full of essential fatty acids. I’ll be saving this one for summer as I still have sun protection, lime and coffee ones to use up.
For all the above if you want to read more about the properties of the ingredients pop on over to the site and read all about them.
