My first Love Lula beauty box, February 2016.





I have honesty never been happier with a beauty box ever. This box is an absolute bargain! I was very hesitant to try a different beauty brand since Birchbox, and after reading reviews and things about Love Lula I decided to try it for a month! I will 100% be re-purchasing this! I always find that with the majority of beauty box's they don't really put any effort in to making it mouth droopingly good. Also this box contains some products which are full size, yes, full size!!  All products contained, each month are cruelty-free, natural and organic- what could be better? I love love love trying new brands and beauty box's make that so easy, by not having to spend lots of money and buy a full size product on its own.







Things this conditioner is good for:
Oily Hair
Easily tangled hair
Wavy/curly hair
Colour treated hair.

This conditioner is perfect!! I have been waiting so long to find a conditioner that detangles my hair, it is literally uncontrollable. This is a saviour!!! You can either use it as a wash out conditioner after shampoo'ing and leave it on for 3 minutes or you can leave it in and comb your hair through and then blow-dry. My hair is wavy and if I leave it to dry naturally it is a bush, but I found that my hair dried much nicer naturally after using this, it actually looked okay to be seen out in public with! If you have oily hair this product is THE bomb!

Things this product is good for:
moisturising your lips
conditioning your lips
antibacterial properties help soothe away problems (coldsores etc)

The main reason I like this so much is because I really hate how lipgloss and vaseline like products look on your lips, and this product looks so different. Its very hard to explain, but obviously this is oil based as its a tea tree oil lip balm but it makes your lips look so much nicer, a nice amount of gloss. There is also no fragrance in this product so it won't interfere with eating, drinking or even kissing ;). This is a multi-purpose lip balm, so it can be used anywhere and it can actually be used on babies to soothe dry skin in little places.

All ingredients are organically grown:
Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)
helianthus annuus (sunflower oil),
cera alba (beeswax)

This product is available to purchase here at a price of £4.50 for 10ml.

I don't actually own a pencil eyeliner, so when I saw this in the box I was very excited to try it! I used to wear it but for some reason I changed to liquid. I re-discovered my love for it and now I am actually over-using it! I love it! the only down side is that in order to get a super straight line you need to sharpen it a lot, can be rather annoying. This is also super pigmented and will stay on all night, The second time I wore it I accidentally slept with my makeup on and it stayed on for honestly 24 hours!

This product is available for purchase here at the price of £12.50.

Things this product is good for:
cleansing very delicate skin
deeply removing makeup
removing eye makeup
Im not sure how I feel about this product. When I first tried it it was very oily and I'm not sure if adding oil to my extremely oily skin is a good idea. Im going to try this out a few more times before I properly give an opinion on it and I'll write a individual post on it!
Ingredients:
Caprylic/capric triglycerides
(Coconut Oil)

This is available to purchase here for £13.25 for 100ml.

Things this product is good for:
Hydrating the skin
Makes skin appear lifted, firmer and more youthful

I've only used this once, so I can't really comment on anything or say that it does anything imparticular as I obviously haven't seen results yet. However this is not oily skin friendly as its very hydrating, it makes my face very matte after application but then within 30 minutes oil has broken through. To use this you simply just apply it onto a clean face, a pea size amount is enough and just cover your face with it and then continue to moisturise etc when its dried. It can also be used on top of make-up and just patted on top to add hydration.

Ingredients:
Aqua (water), Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Phenoxyethanol, Pullalan, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Porphyridium Cruentum Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Citronellol, Geraniol

This product is available to purchase here for £36 for 30ml.


I also received two sachet samples of RES Skincare Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift and Doctor Hauschka Hydrating Foot Creme. Both of these I am yet to use!
