Love Lula Beauty Box - May 2016.



It's that time of the month again - when this amaze beauty box is delivered to my door and I shriek with excitement whilst opening it, then go on to show all my house mates and over-excite myself completely. 

This months box smells AMAZING. In order of my favourite products the things I received were :



I've been needing to purchase a sea salt spray for months since mine got thrown away as I accidentally left it in my hand luggage when I was going on holiday (whoops). But this one looks and smells lush!! It smells of a soft lavender, not too much but enough for people to realise and contains no harsh chemicals for your hair, no sulphates or parabens! I am so excited to try this and will definitely be taking this travelling with me, as spraying sea salt spray into wet hair on holiday mixed with the humidity just creates THE nicest natural hair waves!! It is said that the sea salt in this product aims to give the hair volume and texture and the lavender slows hair loss, perfect!

Ingredients:
Aqua (water), sodium chloride (sea salt), lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil* * Certified Organic

JOIK Lemon & Vanilla body scrub:

This is literally the most amazing smell, ever. It reminds me of being a child and when the ice cream man came round, because it smells of actual lemon ice ice cream!!! I would actually consider eating this! This scrub claims to be 100% natural and vegan and gluten free. Its aim is, by using the sea salt and sugar, to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. The shea and cocoa butter work to moisturise and smooth the skin whilst the olive oil is very high in antioxidants and nurtures the skin and sea-buckthorn oil is rich in vitamins A, E and C, stimulating the skins natural cell renewal.

"Gentle scent of lemon & vanilla comes from natural essential oils. JOIK scrubs do not contain any environment and water burdening plastic particles."

Ingredients:
sucrose, sodium chloride, olea europaea fruit oil, ricinus commuunis seed oil, theobroma cacao seed butter, butyrospermum parkii butter, polyglyceryl-3 methylglucose distearate, stearic acid, helianthus annuus seed oil, sodium benzoate, lavandula angustifolia oil, hippophae rhamnoides, potassium sorbate, propylene glycol, litsea cubeba fruit oil, limonene*, citral*, styrax benzoin gum, linalool* * components of natural essential oils

I'm actually really intrigued to try this as I have really oily skin and apparently adding oil to oily skin helps (Weirdly enough) but it has been said that people with oily skin actually lack oils in their skin so giving it oil feeds it and makes it create less oil.  This oil feeds your skin and allows it to breathe, even out texture and feel completely rejuvenated whilst moisturising and refining the skin. The product is made from luxuriously fine carrier oils which when put on the skin they are completely absorbed leaving your face oil-free. To use this you can either put a few drops into your moisturiser day and night or use alone!

Ingredients:
Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis(Borgae) Seed Oil, Boswellia Neglecta Oil, Pelagonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Juniperus Communis Fruit Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, citronellol, geraniol, linaool, citral, limonene, farnesol.


These products are "Made on a small farm in Somerset, England, using home-grown ingredients. Founders Ben and Vicky Lyons are passionate about producing award winning skincare that is 100% natural and 100% active." This body butter is handbag size, and is an intensive moisturising treatment for the skin. I would only use this in places that I have extremely dry skin like on my elbows or my knuckles sometimes. The product hydrates the body for beautifully soft, smooth and healthy skin, no greasy residue is left after using this product as it is water free and uses solely natural oils that can be absorbed easily into every layer of the epidermis. This product should NOT be used if you have a nut allergy.

The Love Lula website states: "The natural fatty acids within the Lyonsleaf Body Butter are the same natural lipids found in the skin, so they are readily accepted to repair and maintain the skin's moisture retaining barrier, without upsetting its natural balance. The unique blend of essential oils also helps to balance sebum, while the addition of calendula penetrates deep into the dermis to promote collagen cell regeneration and speed healing of any minor inflammations. The huge array of antioxidants in this product will neutralise unavoidable free radicals caused by UV light and day to day pollutants, stopping damaging chain reactions in their tracks, greatly reducing premature ageing."
