Last month’s LoveLula Beauty Box contained four full-sized products and three samples, all of which are worth £65 which, as always, is such great value for money.

April’s LoveLula Beauty Box contained the following products:
The first product that caught my attention was the Balm Balm Little Miracle Rosehip Balm (30ml, £12). This is a brand new release from one of my favourite skincare brands, Balm Balm, and I’m really loving this balm so far. As with all Balm Balm products, it has a rather simple but powerful formulation, with sunflower, rosehip, jojoba and borage oils as key ingredients. It’s a really great multi-tasking product so perfect for travelling – use it on dry knees and elbows, or on chapped lips! I’ve also used it as an overnight treatment on days when the skin on my forehead felt quite tight – by the morning, this was gone!
Being such a huge fan of Inika, I got really excited when I saw the Inika Certified Organic Cream Eyeshadow (in Champagne) (7ml, £21) inside the box. It comes with a tiny tube and has a rather runny consistency, more like a liquid foundation with a dose of glitter. I hadn’t really used cream eyeshadows before but I can’t quite see how this one can stay on your eyelid since it’s so runny. Am I missing a trick here?
The other two products are from a brand previously not known to me. These are the Dr.botanicals Kale Superfood Nourishing Day Moisturiser (30ml, £14.90) and Dr.botanicals Coffee Superfood Renewing Facial Exfoliator (30ml, £14.90). So far I’ve used the coffee scrub a handful of times and really like it. It obviously smells of coffee which I personally like a smell of, and has gentle, non-abrasive micro beads to exfoliate your skin.
As for the day cream – I’ve used it a few times now, ironically at night though (I obviously hadn’t read the label properly!) and it worked really nicely, I must say. My skin much prefers oils but I think I could get on with this cream.
And finally, the remaining items were the three samples from Madara, a frequently featured brand inside the Beauty Box. The samples were for the AHA Brightening Peel Mask (60ml, £24), Cleansing Milk (200ml, £17.50) and Smart Antioxidants Fine Line Minimising Cream – Day (50ml, £35). I use the AHA mask regularly (review here) and have previously tried the day cream (I thought it was ok but my Mum loved it) so the only new product was the cleansing milk. I really enjoyed using it (the sample lasted for three uses) and I’ll definitely be buying a full size bottle. The consistency is quite creamy and it doesn’t dry up your skin which is very important to me as my skin does have tendencies to go dehydrated very quickly, especially on my forehead.
