Green Beauty Box: April 2017 LoveLula

Time for a quick look at the latest LoveLula beauty box from the green beauty online store of the same name. l’ve found this to be the best value natural and organic box I’ve come across at £12.50 including post and packaging. Each month there’s a mixture of full size and travel size products from skincare companies mainly. There is occasionally a makeup item but it’s quite rare.

APRIL 2017 LOVELULA BEAUTY BOX*

Love Lula April beauty box review

The April Love Lula Beauty Box contains the following:

  • Madara AHA Brightening Peel Mask (60ml full size) – a brightening mask using fruit acids and Vitamin C, promising instant radiance. During winter my skin is particularly sensitive and I rarely exfoliate, which means when spring comes I’m ready to slough! I’ll be using this to peel and deal with some post inflammatory hyperpigmentation that I’m battling.
  • Greenfrog Geranium and Peppermint Botanic Handwash (100ml travel size) – this handwash includes organic soapberries, grown sustainably in the pristine foothills of the Himalayan mountains. Soapberries are from a rather marvellous plant which lathers naturally and has been used for cleaning clothes and bodies naturally for an eternity in the regions where it grows. I wash my hands a lot so hand wash that won’t strip and irritate is always handy.
  • FOM London Hydra Plump & Firm Cream  (15ml travel size) – I’ve previously mentioned FOM London in my 2017 Green Beauty Predictions as this brand has a big focus on tackling pollution and environmental stresses on skin. This cream contains nourishing ingredients such as shea butter, avocado and marula oil combined with various antioxidant rich and collagen boosting botanicals. It is designed to protect and hydrate and also promises some skin lifting action.
  • Apple & Bears Pomegranate and Aloe Vera Body Wash (50ml travel size) – another handy size for travel. This is a new to me brand. The name is inspired by natural qualities that the founders find inspiring. Apples for their healthy skin and bears for their ability to live a natural rhythm without impacting their environment. The logo is a tribute to people diagnosed with breast cancer with the mermaid and koi representing a celebration of life, hope, courage, perseverance and new beginnings. A percentage of profits goes towards charity.

The box also had a Marlenha eye cream sachet but I don’t count sachets as a valid item in a beauty box so that’s just a little bonus as you can still get 20% off all the brands in the box using the discount code included.

I like that the boxes tend to contain practical products that you’ll use. Over the months they’ve incuded cleanser,toner, mask, oils, shampoo, hand cream etc. You can see past boxes on their website. If you are looking for a cost-effective and savvy way to switch all your skincare staples to green beauty, without spending a fortune, the LoveLula beauty box is a great place to start.

  1. From the brands mentioned, I am just discovering Madara. Obviously the brand’s been around for the last 10 years, but I suppose anything can be new to anyone, eh? 😉 Will wait for your review, brightening sounds like a good idea. I have some hyperpigmentation that’s about three years old, and sometimes would vanish, then sometimes would show again; such a mess :/

    • I really like one of the Madara repair serum – partly because it’s green coloured i think 🙂 Hyperpigmentation is so stubborn. Teeny bit of sun and can be back in a flash! I’m throwing lots of Vitamin C serum on too so we’ll see.

      • Ah, which one do you choose? I tried Mukti and it was amazing, but also VERY expensive. (They chimed in on Instagram, stating that their ingredients are very pure and excellent, and I totally get it. It’s just 30 ml at 97€ – and I try to stay within a bit of a common sense lead price range. Will probably repurchase anyway. So good. Sigh)

      • I just finished cellular repair for daytime -i’ve been using travel sizes that came with various orders so actually need to check what full size costs but i’m sure it’s reasonable and i’d buy. Best budget serum I’ve used is the Sukin supergreens serum – around £15! (it deserves a review actually). For night time serums, I tend to sell a kidney lolz. Currently using Vintner’s Daughter…which i wouldn’t repurchase.

  2. I always think the Love Lula beauty boxes are great value for money and 9 times out of 10 I can always use the products it contains. A make up item is always a nice surprise when there’s one in the box.
