The months are flying by so quickly and it’s time to share April’s LoveLula Beauty Box.
I mentioned in my last review that LoveLula have recently taken the decision to close their subscription Beauty Box. They will now be available to purchase as curated individual boxes on their website.
I have enjoyed reviewing their beauty boxes for 6+ years and I’ve discovered some amazing brands and products. It’s time for a change and I look forward to their new format beauty boxes.
April’s beauty box contains full sized products from PHB Ethical Beauty, Soul Tree, and Balm Balm and a deluxe sample from MÁDARA.
The total value of this month’s box is £50. There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 20% off the brands featured in the box.
What’s in the box:

My hair also loves it. Aloe vera gel is a great natural remedy for dry hair and itchy scalp. I apply to my scalp and leave it overnight. I also like to use it in my DIY conditioner, I mix with some coconut oil and honey.

I love everything Balm Balm and this is a lovely addition. It has a warm, aromatic and comforting scent.
It is a great multi-purpose balm that can be used on any areas of the body that require moisturising and as a cleansing face balm.
To use as a cleanser – smooth liberally over neck & face. Place a hot damp muslin cloth over for a few minutes and remove all traces of make up, dirt & grime with the cloth.
To use as a face moisturiser – massage a small amount into the skin. It melts and absorbs well into the skin leaving it moisturised and nourished.
