Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and well. It’s time to share my thoughts on September’s LoveLula Beauty Box .
This month’s box contains full-sized products from Ayumi Naturals, Inika and Dr Botanicals and travel size products from Mádara and Urban Veda.
The total value of this month’s box is £62. 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….
Ayumi Glow Turmeric & Papaya Glycolic Acid Face Toner (150ml )
A blend of proven actives and respected naturals to encourage a dew-fresh complexion and natural radiance. Glycerin used by generations for its water binding qualities helps keep the skin hydrated. Aloe vera is respected for its skin cooling and soothing properties while glycolic acid quietly encourages new skin cells as it gently tones the skin. A delicate infusion of traditional botanicals Turmeric, Papaya and Amla caress the skin with their sensitive care.

Use daily in the morning and evening. Apply generously to cotton wool and sweep gently over face and neck. For optimal results, use after cleansing with an Ayumi face wash or a facial scrub and follow with a day or night moisturiser from the Ayumi range. This product can also be used to refresh your skin during the day.
I haven’t gotten round to using this product yet as it contains glycolic acid which is quite strong for my skin. I’m currently doing a course of AHA treatments and don’t want to overdo it with acids. I will hopefully share my thoughts once I get to try it out.
Dr.botanicals Hemp Infused Natural Nutrition Moisturiser (30ml )
Hemp Seed Oil and Cocoa Butter infused day moisturiser that works to protect, nourish and hydrate skin for a smooth looking complexion. Due to Hemp Seed Oil containing all of the 21 amino acids, it is known as ‘nature’s most perfectly balanced oil’. It is also extremely rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids which are key components for maintaining healthy skin and plumping tired, dry skin. Applying this moisturiser daily in the morning to restore the skin’s complexion. Cocoa Butter helps to lock in moisture and reduce water loss to reveal a glowing, hydrated complexion.

I love face masks and this is one I received in a previous box a while back. The consistency is really smooth and it is easy to apply to the skin. I apply to cleansed skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. It thoroughly cleanses and decongests my skin. It rinses off easily and leaves my skin refreshed, soft, smooth and radiant.
