Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well. It’s been a super busy month for me and I’m excited as it’s my birthday tomorrow!
Now it’s time to share August’s LoveLula Beauty Box .

The total value of this month’s box is a whopping £70. There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 20% off the brands featured in the box.
Let’s have a look at what’s in this month’s box….

Avoid the eye area, if product comes in contact with the eyes wash the eye area carefully
I have a few favourite products from Laidbare but sadly this product is just not for me. Aside from the fact that I clearly don’t need a self tanner, there are way too many synthetic ingredients for my liking.

I’m always pleased to find FOM London featured. The consistency of this cleanser is light and creamy with a lovely fresh scent. I massage onto damp skin and gently massage. It helps remove makeup, daily grime and pollutants effortessly.
It rinses off easily so you don’t need to remove with a cloth. I love how clean, smooth and balanced my skin feels afterwards. My skin has a fresh and healthy glow.

I struggle with trying to find the right sunscreen for dark skin. I’ve tried loads that have been too greasy and leave a white cast. Looking like a ghost is not a hot look!
This one from Mádara says it is suitable for all skin and the shade is invisible.
I’ve been impressed so far. The consistency is creamy smooth and glides onto the skin easily. It also nice a lovely scent.
You can apply on its own or over a moisturiser. I was really impressed that it blended well into my skin leaving an invisible, flawless finish.

Apply 1 to 2 pumps on to face and neck. Massage in until fully absorbed.
I previously tried a sample of this and was really pleased to see the full size featured. It has a fresh citrusy scent and a gorgeous creamy consistency.
I apply 2 pumps to my skin, it glides on smoothly on the skin and absorbs well. My skin is well moisturised and hydrated. This helps to create a perfect smooth canvas for my makeup.
My makeup looks velvety smooth, stays fresh and lasts longer. Definitely a favourite!
