LoveLula Beauty Box January 2019 Review
This month’s box features 3 full-size items and 1 deluxe sample. Let’s check them 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.
Balm Balm Lavender Hand Balm, 60ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $16.11 (£12.50)
I love Balm Balm balms (ha) because they are super versatile. They can be applied straight out of the jar, added to warm water for a foot and hand soak, or mixed with salt and used as an exfoliator. This Lavender Hand Balm is brand new and exclusive to Love Lula. The texture is soft and smooth, sinks in fast, and nourishes dry hands and cuticles. It smells lovely too!
Madara Infusion Blanc Supreme Hydration Body Lotion, 200ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $21.91 (£17)
I can’t have enough body lotion and this one smells like the spa. It has a light citrusy scent that is comforting and refreshing. The formula has a thin consistency, is super hydrating, and sinks in fast. It leaves a soft finish and a hint of fragrance.
Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask, 30ml – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $19.20 (£14.90)
Sleeping masks are everywhere right now which is great for the overnight dryness I suffer from. I like the cute pink tube and that there’s no added fragrance or coloring. Some sleeping masks I’ve tried have been so heavily fragranced that I wake up with a headache. This one feels like a thick moisturizer when applied. After it dries down, it leaves the sensation of a film on my face but no goopy layer of product to get all over my pillow. I like layering it over another moisturizer to make sure I wake up with plump, nourished skin the next morning.
REN Evercalm Anti-Redness Serum, 10ml – Estimated Value $12.46 (Buy 30ml for $37.38, £29)
This is a generous deluxe sample (it’s 1/3 of the full size). I like that the gel texture of this serum glides on easily and sinks in completely without leaving a film. My skin has a tendency to get irritated and red but it feels soothed and hydrated when I layer this under my moisturizer.
The Verdict: I’m happy with the variety of products in this month’s LoveLula Beauty Box. I am thoroughly enjoying each of them and am so impressed with how luxe everything feels considering there is such a rigorous vetting process (and so many ingredients that can’t be included) in the brands. I like knowing that every product from LoveLula is ingredient conscious and comes from brands that are environmentally and socially responsible. It is also very easy to look up the ingredients on the site. This box has a value of about $70 plus free shipping which I think is a win for a cost of just under $25. Though being outside of the UK makes this box a little more costly for me, I think the curation of products rigorously vetted for their effectiveness, sustainability, quality, and policies against animal testing make it worth it.
The Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, if you sign up today your first box will be the March box.
Value Breakdown: The box cost about $22.56, and I estimate that a total of $69.68 was received. That means I’m spending approximately the following on each item:
- Balm Balm Hand Balm – $5.22
- Madara Body Lotion – $7.09
- Dr. Botanicals Mask – $6.22
- REN Serum – $4.03
