What a busy month it’s been. Lots of family birthdays to celebrate including mine. Summer holiday’s are almost over so we’ve been trying to squeeze in catching up with family and friends.
This month’s LoveLula Beauty Box was a lovely surprise with new goodies to try out.
August’s beauty box contains full-sized products from Ooh! Oils of Heaven, Butterwhips, Inika and a travel size product from Terre Verdi.
The total value of this month’s box is £71. There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 20% off the brands featured in the box.
What’s in the box?
Terre Verdi Acqua di Rosa Balancing Mist – 30ml
100% organic | Certified by Soil Association COSMOS | Vegan | Cruelty Free Approved
Rose water and its beautifying properties have been known for thousands of years – and there’s a reason for that! Enjoy the multiple benefits of this delicate, organic rose water:
- use as a skin cleanser (when mixed with oil)
- as a refreshing skin toner after cleansing, removing any residual makeup and dirt as well as rebalancing the skin’s PH levels, leaving it ready to be moisturised
- skin calming anti-septic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties
- spritz onto freshly washed hair and breathe in the subtle scent
- give your skin a boost of hydration throughout the day (ideal when travelling)
100% Organic rosa damascena (rose) flower water
I love using rosewater in my skincare routine as it helps to balance, soothe and hydrate my skin. This one from Terre Verdi has a beautiful sweet flora scent that is so fresh and uplifting. I spritz onto my face after cleansing and then apply my moisturiser or face oil. My skin feels more balanced and hydrated.
This is also a great size to pop into my handbag so I can spray it on throughout the day when I need a refreshing mist.
Ooh! – Oils of Heaven Natural Blackcurrant Face Oil 30ml
This delicious sounding oil is the perfect skin soother. Aids skin prone to inflammation and uneven skin tone. Hydrating and therapeutic, its high antioxidant content makes for an excellent healing oil. Suitable for day and night. Can be used under makeup.
100% Ribes Nigrum seed oil
Another fantastic new face oil from Ooh! Blackcurrant seed oil helps to relieve inflammatory skin conditions and is beneficial if you are experiencing acne, skin irritation, eczema, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation.
I was excited to try this oil out and it did not disappoint! The consistency is light and it absorbs well into the skin without feeling greasy. It makes my skin soft and supple, leaving it wonderfully smooth, nourished and protected.
It is also great for the hair and scalp. I like to massage a few drops into my hair and scalp to strengthen my hair and stimulate hair growth.

This beautiful Warmly relaxing body butter contains the warm and luxurious scent of Bergamot & Lavender to relax the body and calm the mind.
Bergamot is said to be one of the best stress busting oils with relaxing properties, while the scent of Lavender is often used to promote emotional calm.

This is a new product from Inika and is available in 3 shades. I got the shade ‘Morning’ which is a peachy colour. This shade wasn’t flattering on me and is more suited to fair skin tones. I think the shade ‘Petal’ would be more suitable for me.
I love the handy handbag size and it comes in a recyclable glass packaging. The formula is silky soft and it blends seamlessly onto lips and cheeks creating a beautiful, natural finish.
How to use:
1. Using your fingertips to warm up the natural oils in the Lip & Cheek Cream, gently dab onto your lips and the apples of your cheeks. 2. Gently blend into the skin, building colour as needed.
