As many of you know, having run Uniquely Organic EcoSpa for the last six years, I am passionate about organic and natural products. Not only am I determined to find products that look after our environment and are chemical-free but I also expect top quality. I don't think we should compromise on quality or efficacy just because these products aren't governed by the ‘colourful' ingredient list we might have got used to. If anything, organic and natural products should give us better results with longer lasting, visible improvements. Our skin, hair and bodies are compatible with natural and organic ingredients – we are essentially cut from the same cloth!
My quest for new products never ends! I am always looking for new products to stock in our EcoSpa, to add to or EcoShop and, of course, to use on my own skin. Genuinely good and authentic organic and natural brands are few and far between – trust me, I have met a lot of them! To make my search easier (and a little more fun!) I decided to jump on the ‘beauty box subscription' wagon.
Firstly, let me tell you, organic and natural versions of said beauty boxes are not easy to come by. But I found one – introducing LoveLula!
Ok, so the box was a teeny bit disappointing but it's what inside that counts and that did not disappoint!
- Rose Floral Water Hydrosol, Balm Balm (30ml deluxe sample) – this is a brand I am familiar with and we actually stock their organic essential oils. They are a good, reliable company with great entry level organic products. Perfect if you like simple fragrances. Rose water is great for the skin and is also super handy for a quick refresh on the go.
- London Hydra Plump Serum, FOM (10ml deluxe sample) – this was a totally new brand to me and the pronunciation is anyones guess but the packaging is clean and classy. Very light consistensy with a gentle aroma. The key ingredient in this product is rose so great for ageing and dehydrated skins
- AHA Brightening Peel Mask, Madara (12.5ml deluxe sample) – a new brand to me but very nice packaging. Love a product in a box! This product is designed for more acne prone skin but I have tried this and really quite enjoyed it. Not something I would use regularly but something for a special occasion. Ooh, they also have a great website!
- Oils of Heaven Baobab Oil, OOH! (30ml full size) – this brand currently just specialise in face oils. This product contains the ‘on-trend' ingredient Baobab. Baobab contains omegas 3, 6 and 9 and is easily absorbed by the skin, making this a fab product for hydration. My skin felt very soft after using this!
Love Lula give you 20% off all of the brands in your box in case you find a gem and want to purchase more. I thoroughly enjoyed my first beauty box and look forward to the next one!
Wishing you health and happiness,
