The end of 2021 is fast approaching and what a year it’s been! I can’t believe it’s time to share the last LoveLula Beauty Box  of 2021. I have enjoyed discovering new brands and products this year.

This month’s beauty box contains full-sized products from PHB Ethical Beauty, Balm Balm, The Castilian Soap Company and travel-size products from MÁDARA.

What's in the box: 

PHB Ethical Beauty – 2-in-1 Shampoo & Body Wash 300ml

Welcome simplicity into your life with PHB’s 2-in-1 Shampoo & Body Wash. This multi-tasking hair & body cleanser perfectly blends gentle yet nourishing organic extracts that will keep your hair soft, shining and healthy. Handmade with natural foamers to refresh & moisturise your skin, plus our signature Oat milk & Argan Oil complex to boost hair strength, softness & vitality whilst soothing your scalp.

I love a good multi-functional product and this is a great body and hair cleanser. The formula is gentle and also fragrance free so ideal for sensitive skin. The product is runny and gushes out of the tube so you have to be careful.

It lathers gently cleansing my hair and body without stripping it. It leaves my hair and body cleansed and refreshed.


The Castilian Soap Company – Natural Castile Soap with Lemongrass essential oil 250ml

Our Natural Castile Soap with Lemongrass Essential Oil is a true liquid soap made from an organic castile soap base with natural vegetable oils of the finest quality.

Castile soap is a staple in my home and I love this Lemongrass version. It has a vibrant citrus, earthy and herbaceous scent that has a refreshing and uplifting effect on the senses.

It is a wonderful multi-purpose product that works well as a hand and body wash, shampoo, household cleaner (washing up, cleaning floors, laundry), makeup brush cleaner, shaving gel and the list goes on…


MÁDARA Active AHA Brightening Peel Mask 17ml

This mask has been a regular over the years so I’m very familiar with it. If you suffer from acne, clogged pores and dull skin then give this mask a go. It helps to unclog pores and remove dead skin cells leaving my skin soft, smooth and radiant.


MÁDARA Time Miracle Hydra Firm Hyaluron Concentrate Jelly 15ml

Craving for intense hydration and freshness? Problem-prone skin? Signs of ageing?

With a superdose of multi-molecular Hyaluronic Acid, this luxurious, oil-free hydra jelly instantly quenches the skin for a firmer-looking and more youthful complexion. Replenishes thirsty skin by locking in moisture and reducing transepidermal water loss.

Ingredients:

Aqua, Glycerin, Betula Alba (Birch) Juice, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium PCA, Sclerotium Gum, Lactic Acid, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Aroma, Sodium phytate, Linalool

This is a lovely oil-free and fragrance free gel with a lightweight jelly consistency. The bubbles in the tube are cool to look at.

It doesn’t feel very sticky, spreads easily and absorbs quickly. It quenches thirsty skin and helps to lock in moisture. I use it before my moisturiser during the day and it leaves my skin soft, smooth, plump and deeply hydrated.

The lightweight texture is perfect for my evening routine when I like to use my facial rollers and Gua sha.


Balm Balm Frankincense Light Facial Oil 30ml

Made from Apricot Kernel oil, Evening Primrose oil, Jojoba oil and Rosehip oil to nourish, condition and protect the skin, Frankincense essential oil to rejuvenate and smooth out fine lines and Grapefruit essential oil to refresh.

Ingredients:

Prunus armeniaca kernel oil, oenothera biennis oil, simmondsia chinensis seed oil, rosa canina fruit oil, boswelia carterii oil, citrus grandis (grapefruit) peel oil, citral*, limonene*, linalool*.

*naturally occurring in essential oils

This oil has a light consistency and sinks well into the skin without leaving it feeling greasy. It smells amazing thanks to Frankincense which has a very distinct sweet balsamic, earthy and woody aroma with notes of citrus and spice. Beautifully combined with grapefruit oil this blend is comforting and warming.

I apply 3 drops to my palms, inhale deeply and massage over my face and neck. My skin feels soft, smooth and balanced.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed reading all my LoveLula beauty box reviews.  I look forward to sharing more with you in the new year.

 

 

Until next time,
