LoveLula Beauty Box March 2018 Review
This month’s box features 3 full-size items and 3 deluxe sample sizes. Let’s check it out:
Each box comes with a card detailing the brands and products included plus a 20% off code to use towards purchasing products from the included brands.
Laidbare Guess My Age, 50ml – Retail value $13.99 USD (£9.99)
This multipurpose cream can be used day or night and is supposed to help maintain a hydrated, lifted appearance. There are lots of vitamins and oils packed in here, yet it still feels pretty lightweight and sinks in fast. I like the base this creates for makeup and that it doesn’t look greasy even on its own. The scent reminds me of orange jello. Not a terrible thing…
Sukin Purifying Shampoo, 50ml – Estimated Value $1.79 USD (Buy 250ml bottles for $8.95 USD)
Sukin Nourishing Conditioner, 50ml -Estimated Value $1.79 USD (Buy 250ml bottles for $8.95 USD)
I think this combo of shampoo and conditioner is best suited for thin hair which I do not have. The shampoo is a clear, clarifying cleanser that doesn’t suds up very much. The conditioner is lightweight and would be great for fine or thin hair that doesn’t need much detangling. I only comb my hair in the shower with conditioner in and I need lots of slip, so this just isn’t meant for me.
FOM Hydra Bright Night Complex, 10ml – Retail Value $22.40 USD (Buy a 50ml bottle for $112.02 USD)
This is an intriguing, and expensive (for the full size), facial serum. I love serums, by the way! The mix of ingredients brighten, hydrate, and exfoliate. I use an AHA every day and this has one in it, so I like that it is a product that combines multiple benefits. It’s housed in a little glass jar with a glass dropper and the milky solution feels like water on my skin. It sinks in super fast and leaves a hydrated but not shiny finish. This deluxe sample size is great and will last for weeks.
Balm Balm Frankincense Light Facial Oil, 30ml – Retail Value $21.71 USD (£15.50)
I’ve received another product from this line and could not get past the smell. This one is much less pungent though. The oil is so lightweight and perfect for daytime application. Some thicker oils can cause my makeup to smear, but this one doesn’t. Frankincense is said to be good for rejuvenating and helping to increase blood circulation, two necessary things for glowing skin. This bottle will last me a while and I’m really enjoying it so far.
Elsa’s Natural Deodorant in Dew, 45g – Retail Value $14.24 USD (£10)
Who else desperately wants a natural deodorant to work? This packaging is cute and the product smells great, but it just doesn’t do anything for me. My pits don’t stay fresh and worse, they feel greasy all day and the product bunches up into crusty bits. I avoid using antiperspirant and will be sticking to my men’s Axe deo for now. Does anyone have any other recommendations that work for you?
The Verdict: This LoveLula Beauty Box is hit or miss this month. I’m loving the facial oil, serum, and cream but the deodorant and hair set just aren’t for me. I do appreciate the chance to try new brands and products and I like the fact that I know every product from LoveLula is safe for my skin and comes from brands that are environmentally and socially responsible. This box has a value of $75.92 plus free shipping which I think is a great value for a cost of just under $25. Though being outside of the UK makes this box a little more costly, I think you are paying for a curation of products that are rigorously vetted for their effectiveness, sustainability, quality, and policies against animal testing.
