Mossa Youth Defence Moisturising Antioxidant Day Cream - Review*



Good skin starts with kind ingredients. That's why we ethically source the juiciest berries from Nordic nature, which are a mega source of nutrients and vitamins. Mossa ingredients and final formulations are ECOCERT/Cosmos certified. So whichever formulation you pick, you can be sure it’s safe, effective, good for your skin and good for the planet. We also take a big step to reduce the ecological footprint by providing our unique formulas with recyclable packaging.

Your skin will appreciate this Moisturising Antioxidant Day Cream! Made from a formula with blueberries and vitamin E which deeply hydrates the skin. The fragmented hyaluronic acid promotes a smoother look of the wrinkles and Blueberry antioxidants protect against harmful environmental pollution and work against the aging process. The silky and lightweight texture is quickly absorbed, leaving a smooth feel.

With my current day cream running low it was time to find a new product to try out. I came across the Mossa Youth Defence Moisturising Antioxidant Day Cream on Love Lula. With the day cream being specifically for normal to combination skin I thought it would be perfect for my oily skin. I find the cream is lightweight on my skin which means it doesn't leave it feeling heavy or greasy.

Alteya Certified Organic Moisture Dew Hand Cream - Review*



Alteya Organics is a fast-growing and a multiple international award-winning family-owned USDA and NaTrue certified organic beauty and skincare company with our own rose and lavender fields, distillery and a state-of-the-art skincare manufacturing facility in the heart of The Rose Valley in Bulgaria. We grow and harvest roses, Lavender, Chamomile and Calendula and we distil premium quality certified organic rose oil and other essential oils and flower waters using generations-old recipes.

This NaTrue certified organic lightweight formula provides intense hydration and long-lasting softness. Enriched with soothing rosewater and sweet jasmine extract, this fragrant flower that helps nourish, soften and protect your hands, this cream is the perfect solution for dry or rough hand skin.

I use hand cream in my morning skincare routine, after washing my hands (if they're drier than usual), after washing up and in my evening skincare routine. Due to using hand cream a lot, I tend to go through a tube quite quickly. On the plus side, it does mean that I get to try a variety of hand creams! I found the Alteya Certified Organic Moisture Dew Hand Cream on Love Lula and it ticks all of my boxes. It has a lovely scent of Roses which I personally like, but some people may find it on the stronger side. The cream itself sinks into my hands very quickly and doesn't leave them feeling sticky or greasy. Although this tube probably won't last me long, it's a great size to carry around in my bag as a spare.

Mossa ingredients and final formulations are ECOCERT/Cosmos certified. So whichever formulation you pick, you can be sure it’s safe, effective, good for your skin and good for the planet. We also take a big step to reduce the ecological footprint by providing our unique formulas with recyclable packaging.

Shhh... Let the magic work while you dream with a Deep recovery Collagen night cream! This juicy and unique formula with juneberry extract boosts your skin during the night while biopolymers of natural origin help to efficiently improve the hydration and smoothness of the skin. Juneberry is the star of the show here as it treats your skin with antioxidants and 21 youth-activating elements. Enjoy the result of smoother, firmer-looking and more glowing skin!

It's only recently that I've started using a specific night cream. Before this, I was using my day-time moisturiser in my night-time skincare routine. This one from Love Lula caught my eye as it's suitable for all skin types. I find the cream is soft to apply and doesn't feel heavy on my skin, which is good for my oily skin.

The Castilian Soap Company Natural Hand Sanitiser with Peppermint & Chamomile - Review*


Natural Castile Soap is a biodegradable, true liquid soap made from an organic base with natural vegetable oils of the finest quality. Ideal for sensitive skins or those looking for a hypoallergenic alternative, Castile soap also holds a multitude of uses for bathroom and beyond!

Our natural hand cleanser with Peppermint & Chamomile cleans without drying out hands with just four natural ingredients - organic alcohol, organic chamomile water, natural plant glycerin and peppermint essential oil. With a fresh and breezy scent, use at home or on-the-go to freshen up.

Having lost my small bottled hand sanitiser at work (what a time to lose such a thing!), I was on the hunt for a replacement. I came across the Castilian Soap Company Natural Hand Sanitiser with Peppermint and Chamomile on Love Lula. Firstly, the bottle is a great size and is perfect for carrying around with you. Although this isn't a gel and is a lot thinner, I personally find that just one pump is enough to fully sanitise both of my hands. The Peppermint and Chamomile scent is refreshing and my hands are left feeling clean and soft after use.

Lovea Organic Purifying Green Clay Face Mask - Review*



Lovea Nature beauty care products use nature’s riches to keep you beautiful, the ingredients are selected with infinite care to guarantee maximum delight.

This naturally made face mask is designed for combination and oily skin. It purifies combination and oily skin, leaving skin completely cleansed and fresh. It's also paraben, dye, silicone, Phenoxyethanol, PEG, nano and artificial fragrance-free. To use this mask all you have to do is apply a thin layer all over the face, but avoiding your eye area. Leave it on your face for about five minutes, but without letting the mask fully dry on the skin. And then rinse it all away with warm water and then apply your usual moisturiser, easy peasy!

This mask is lovely and thick which makes it very easy to apply. It seems to dry well and it doesn't flake off everywhere like most do. It seemed to soak up all of the excess oil that I had around my T-Zone beforehand, leaving me with oil-free skin! After washing the mask off of my face, I was left with smooth and soft skin. It did make my face feel quite tight and a little red after washing it away, but after applying my usual face moisturiser my skin was fine. I'll definitely keep this face mask in mind when I run out of it, as it's so easy to use and is much better than previous ones I've used before.

Alteya Certified Organic Stretch Mark Oil - Review*



Alteya Organics is a fast-growing and a multiple international award-winning family-owned USDA and NaTrue certified organic beauty and skincare company with our own rose and lavender fields, distillery and a state-of-the-art skincare manufacturing facility in the heart of The Rose Valley in Bulgaria. We grow and harvest roses, lavender, chamomile and calendula and we distil premium quality certified organic rose oil and other essential oils and flower waters using generations-old recipes.

Our Organic Stretch Mark Oil is a premium blend of plant-based oils, butter and organic Bulgarian Rose Oil, that may help against stretch marks, and keep skin nourished, soft and beautiful. Relieves dry, itchy skin and significantly improves elasticity.

Rather than using the same body product all over, I like to use products that are designed for certain areas. I was looking for a new product to hydrate the stretch marks that I have on my bottom. I ended up choosing the Alteya Certified Organic Stretch Mark Oil from Love Lula, as I haven't used an oil-based product for a while. The oil smells sweet and rubs in nicely, leaving my skin feeling soft after use.

Bloomtown The Rose Garden Organic Hand & Body Wash - Review*



Inspired by the woods, gardens, groves and other charming nooks of our ideal green community, where every ingredient is nourishing and sustainable. Bloomtown was founded in 2016 by husband and wife team Preyanka Clark Prakash and Medwin Culmer after spending two years in Indonesia and witnessing first-hand the loss of virgin forest that is home to endangered orangutans, tigers and so much of the world's biodiversity. Bloomtown is proud to be the UK's first independently certified palm oil-free company, offering beautifully scented, expertly formulated body & skincare, hand-crafted in Cornwall.

Certified vegan, cruelty-free & palm oil-free. We're proud to offer one of the few truly palm-free liquid soaps on the market. Our natural, organic Hand & Body Wash is 100% free from SLSs, parabens and synthetic detergents! Gently cleansing, beautifully scented and packaged in elegant, eco-friendly glass bottles. While away long summer days in Bloomtown's lush, rose-strewn gardens. This isn't your gran's rose scent, though she'll probably adore it, too. A gorgeous modern rose balanced with not-too-sweet white florals.

I originally ordered the Bloomtown The Rose Garden Organic Hand & Body Wash from Love Lula with intentions of using it as a body wash. With Rose being a favourite scent of mine I was looking forward to trying this product as a body wash more than a hand wash. When it came to using it in the shower I was a little worried about the bottle being glass. I took extra care in the shower and because of this, I'd prefer to use it as a hand wash. I also wasn't sure about using this product as a body wash as it feels like you've washed with a bar of soap, which I personally don't like. The soap itself smells lovely and fresh and lathers up well on both hands and the body.

JOIK Organic Pink Grapefruit Body Lotion - Review*



JOIK is natural luxury. All the goodness from nature combined with luxurious emotions of scent and colour. Using nature to our best advantage, but also caring for nature. JOIK is Northern, pure and minimal style. All products are hand made in Estonia in small batches using only the finest ingredients to ensure high quality and ultimate pampering. All products are formulated to be skin-friendly, free of parabens, petrochemicals, sulphates, other harmful ingredients and are not tested on animals.

Pink grapefruit body lotion absorbs instantly, provides quick but longlasting moisture and leaves skin soft and silky. The lotion is rich in organic cocoa butter, coconut oil, safflower oil and sunflower oil that relieve dry dehydrated skin, protect skin from moisture loss and help it to renew and maintain its elasticity. Organic aloe juice calms, while natural Vitamin E helps to prevent premature aging of the skin. Scented with a naturally fresh and bitter-sweet pink grapefruit scent.

With the warmer weather approaching, I was on the hunt for a more summery scented body lotion. I came across the JOIK Organic Pink Grapefruit Body Lotion on Love Lula and added it to my basket right away. With a summery scent being the main factor of my search, I'm happy to say that this body lotion absolutely ticks that box. It smells lovely and is exactly what I was looking for, for this time of year. The lotion applies well and rubs in nicely, leaving my skin feeling soft and smelling lovely!

Unfragranced Yes Cleanse Intimate Wash - Review*



The idea that started The Yes Yes Company Ltd in 2003 arose between two friends, Susi Lennox and Sarah Brooks. Susi and Sarah's experience of working in the Drug Safety divisions of major pharmaceutical companies meant they were very aware of the health risks associated with certain synthetic, chemical ingredients. They set themselves the challenge of designing a range of intimacy products that would be completely benign, have no side effects, free of all known skin irritants and be highly effective.

YES CLEANSE - a sensitively formulated organic intimate wash, designed to respect the delicate vaginal ecology, with a refreshing and effective cleansing action. Traditional soaps and shower gels can disrupt the vaginal pH balance, causing irritation and discomfort. YES CLEANSE has been carefully pH matched to complement and protect the intimate environment. Washes away odour-causing bacteria without irritation. Economic foam pump producing soft gentle lather.

I've used the Unfragranced Yes Cleanse Intimate Wash from Love Lula for a few weeks now. I love that the product is a foam wash, as I feel it gives a more of a gentle wash. The wash itself is unfragranced which is great if you're wanting something plain to wash with. I find that the pump on the bottle is really easy to use in the shower, as there's no need to tip the bottle upside down! This is overall a good product that does exactly what it's meant to do.

Safe and non-toxic certified organic liquid soap to gently and effectively clean skin. Our organic liquid soap “Citrus & Mint”, with its mild and balanced formula, gently and effectively cleanses, leaving skin feeling smooth and moisturized. It creates a rich lather and delicately helps maintain the natural moisture balance of the skin. The uplifting citrus and mint scent inspire cheerful feelings.

Since moving into my own place I've been able to choose the hand soap that I use. I came across the Alteya Certified Organic Liquid Soap in Citrus and Mint on Love Lula and thought I would give it ago. The soap smells lovely and fresh which is what I like when it comes to hand washes. The pump is easy to use and disperses the product well. The soap lathers up well and leaves my hands feeling fresh and clean when needed.

Ayumi is a natural skincare brand, inspired by the ancient principles of Ayurveda. A holistic brand, lovingly made in the UK, Ayumi is certified as both vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Dating back approximately 5000 years, Ayurveda is an Indian system of health and wellbeing with the aim of reaching a state of content. Now, however, it is more difficult to maintain a balance in our new, urban environment. This is what Ayumi stands for - maintaining balance in our new surroundings. Ayumi is committed to making natural and mindful living available to everyone, bringing back the natural environment even to the busiest of cities. Bursting with aromatic essential oils, organic extracts and Ayurvedic ingredients, Ayumi is designed to balance the skin and the mind.

Gone will be the days of hair bothered by grease with the astringent and clarifying power of Ayumi's Neem & Tea Tree Shampoo. Neem, Nettle Leaf Extract and Tea Tree Leaf oil will help to regulate the oil production from your hair follicles while Argan oil and Moringa Seed oil will restore moisture and nourishment. Hair will feel refreshed and healthier with this coveted Ayurvedic blend. Our conditioner targets oily or thick hair to keep it in balance and harmony.

Oils of Argan, Coconut, Pumpkin, Neem, Moringa and Tea Tree work with the natural oils in the hair to give the perfect shine and lustre.

I love a good shampoo and conditioner duo. I came across the lovely looking Ayumi Neem & Moringa Shampoo and Conditioner for normal to oily hair on Love Lula. Firstly, I absolutely love the scent of these two products, as they both smell very fresh. When using a reasonable amount of product, I find that the shampoo lathers up well and gives my long, thick hair a really good clean. The conditioner isn't too thick which is perfect for my oily hair. My hair feels super soft after using both of these products together.

Bloomtown The Clearing Charcoal & Tea Tree Treatment Mask - Review*



Inspired by the woods, gardens, groves and other charming nooks of our ideal green community, where every ingredient is nourishing and sustainable. Bloomtown was founded in 2016 by husband and wife team Preyanka Clark Prakash and Medwin Culmer after spending two years in Indonesia and witnessing first-hand the loss of virgin forest that is home to endangered orangutans, tigers and so much of the world's biodiversity. Bloomtown is proud to be the UK's first independently certified palm oil-free company, offering beautifully scented, expertly formulated body & skincare, hand-crafted in Cornwall.

Give your skin a much-deserved breather with our Charcoal Mask for oily and acne-prone complexions, formulated with anti-bacterial tea tree oil and white willow bark extract, a natural pore-exfoliant. Our plant glycerine formula does not dry out like traditional masks.

Face masks have always been a staple in my cosmetics collection and I've always loved masks that dry on my skin. However, the Blooomtown Charcoal and Tea Tree Treatment Mask that I found on Love Lula is a little different. The consistency of this face mask is lovely and thick making it really easy to apply. With the mask being black it can get a little messy at times. To help with the messiness I prefer to apply this mask with a brush. I also like to rinse it off in the shower so I don't splash it anywhere! Once the mask is applied I can feel the mask heating up which is a lovely sensation. The mask itself doesn't dry out so my skin always felt moisturised whilst wearing it. There's a possibility that the mask bought everything to the surface from underneath my skin, as I had a few spots appear the day after using it, so keep this in mind. The best thing about this mask is that it smells amazingly fresh!

BeOnMe Body Hand Cream - Review*


Organic cosmetics made in Italy, certified by Ecocert. BeOnMe was born from the desire to develop the pure, natural and organic cosmetics that people need, to satisfy the desires in particular of those who choose only cosmetics without synthetic ingredients, allergens and components of animal origin.

BeOnMe Hand Cream is rich in natural, organic ingredients that create a protective film for your skin against external agents and is ideal for dry, chapped hands, leaving them soft, smooth and hydrated. It is based on a hydrosol of organic Chamomile, known for its effective calming, anti-inflammatory powers, and a hydrosol of organic Helichrysum Italicum, known for its hydrating, healing properties and for its ability to stimulate circulation and promote cell renewal. Glycerin holds moisture in the skin, while tocopherol (vitamin E) is a power antioxidant long used in cosmetics to prevent skin aging. BeOnMe Hand Cream contains no fragrances, although may chang oil lends it a naturally fresh, citrusy aroma. This essential oil also gives an immediate sensation of wellness and is often used in aromatherapy as a natural anxiolytic and antidepressant.

One product I can't live without is hand cream. I don't suffer from overly dry hands, but I do like to keep any dry skin at bay. I came across the BeOnMe Hand Cream on Love Lula and thought I'd give it a go. The cream itself smells okay but it isn't a favourite of mine. I find the product to be thin and liquidy so a little goes a long way when using this hand cream. Other than that my hands are left feeling really soft and non-greasy after using this product.

A few months ago I was kindly contacted by Louise, I was offered these lovely sounding vegan bath jellies from No Secrets in exchange for a review. I accepted the samples knowing that I could try them out in my new bath in the flat I was about to move into! After a hectic couple of months I finally got around to trying out these luxury bath jellies. One evening, I lit a candle, put on some soft music, and gave my dry skin a good massage with one of the jellies whilst waiting for my bath to fill up. Oh wow, these little tubs of luxury are amazing! My skin was left feeling warm and soft after the massaging, which was heavenly. I then got into the bath tub, nearly falling asleep due to how relaxed I felt. I'm so glad that I finally got around to trying them out, I just wish I had used them sooner!

Benecos Angled Brush Colour Edition - Review*




For a long time, natural cosmetics had a bland, generic look, limited product choices and, generally, high prices. However, this is no longer the case because at Benecos we offer bright, modern, cruelty-free products all at affordable prices. Our products are natural and organic and our makeup range is filled with a variety of colours, so say goodbye to dull and boring and hello to the vibrant and dynamic world of Benecos colour cosmetics!


Angled brush made from high-quality synthetic fibres, with FSC certified handle and recyclable aluminium.

This Benecos Angled Brush from Love Lula is a must-have when it comes to liquid eyeliner. I have a pot of liquid eyeliner that doesn't come with a brush, so I thought this would be a great tool to use to apply it. The brush is really easy to use as it's a lot easier to apply the eyeliner with.

Teeth Whitening KIKI Health Activated Charcoal Powder - Review*


IKI believes in adding only the purest of ingredients with the highest potency available. All ingredients are meticulously chosen and ethically processed to preserve and maximise the beneficial and powerful elements, ensuring unsurpassed bioavailability. KIKI does not compromise their products with inexpensive fillers and synthetics. KIKI was born out of a desire to promote optimum health and well-being and is fast becoming one of the leading manufacturers of natural plant-based health products in the UK.

KIKI’s Activated Charcoal is a finely reduced powder (5-10 microns), which presents a huge surface area for the absorption of unwanted substances. So when taken orally or used on teeth or skin it works like a sponge to soak up contaminants. Activated charcoal contributes to reducing excessive flatulence after eating. KIKI ‘s Activated Charcoal is produced from sustainable coconuts which have been highly purified with steam to remove any contaminants for use as a pharmaceutically active ingredient.

I'm really glad that I came across the Teeth Whitening KIKI Health Activated Charcoal Powder on Love Lula, as it's made my smile a lot brighter. I've never used anything like this before so I did find the process a little messy at first. Just after one use, I had honestly already noticed an immediate change in the colour of my teeth! I try to use the powder every other day or night to help keep my smile brighter and stain free.

Using a glycerine base, our Neem soap is a great addition to your bathroom, using Neem, Tea Tree and Lemongrass to clean and refresh the skin.

The Ayumi Neem & Tea Tree Soap from Love Lula had been on my wish list for awhile so I decided it was time to try it out. I've loved using soap bars to wash my face with over the past year or so. And I've really enjoyed using this one as it's so gentle yet effective on my skin. It brightens up my skin after use and also leaves it feeling soft.

When I choose the Natura Siberica Gentle Face Peeling to review from Love Lula I was expecting it to be a peeling mask, hence the name. The product wasn't what I thought it would be, but I'm kind of glad about this due to it being a really nice face scrub. The product gives the skin on my face a really good scrub and leaves it feeling soft after use. The product itself also smells really fresh which is an added bonus.

Neal's Yard Remedies Eye Make-Up Remover - Review*



We opened our doors on 4th December 1981 in Neal’s Yard, a once forgotten corner of Covent Garden, in the heart of central London, England. Our passionate belief that beauty should be natural, not synthetic, has been at the heart of our business since we started, over 30 years ago.

A blend of nurturing damask rose, antioxidant-rich white tea and cooling aloe vera, creates this calming infusion. Removes waterproof make-up and conditions lashes oil-free.

I was in need for a new make-up remover and ended up going for the Neal's Yard Remedies Eye Make-Up Remover, as it had been on my Love Lula wish list for a while. Firstly, I love the delicate rose sent that this product has! I find that the remover works really well at removing my mascara and it doesn't leave behind any residue.

The paste itself smells very minty and fresh. It foams up well unlike other natural toothpastes. The only thing that I dislike about this toothpaste is that my mouth doesn't feel fresh afterwards.

Nourishing lip care with Vitamin E, Jojoba oil and Shea Butter to hydrate and nourish dry and chapped lips.

The one cosmetic product that I probably couldn't live without is lip balm, as I hate having dry lips. I have a variety of favourite lip balms meaning I always have a couple on the go. This Benecos Mint Lip Balm is now one of my favourite lip balms. I wish I could apply this one all day long, as the mint leaf oil makes my lips tingle as soon as I apply the lip balm. Unfortunately, the tingling does stop after awhile, but on the upside my lips are left feeling really soft.

Kathleen Natural Deep Pore Treatment Mask - Review*



Created in the beautiful town of Royal Leamington Spa in 2014, Kathleen Natural is dedicated to producing luxurious and high-performance skincare made with only the best natural and organic ingredients. The entire range is formulated using a blend of precious plants, marine extracts and essential oils, sourced from all corners of the world – from Europe to Africa, America to Asia – without the inclusion of any harmful artificial chemicals, e.g. SLSs, parabens. Kathleen Natural has never tested any of the ingredients or products on animals and never will.

This is the perfect solution for blackheads and breakouts. This Deep Pore Treatment Mask works to deep clean the skin, minimize pores, reduce blackheads, and calm redness for a clear, balanced, and renewed complexion. It also acts as an aromatherapy product to soothe and relax your mood. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skins. 100% natural, 94% organic and vegan-friendly.

I've tried this Kathleen Natural Deep Pore Treatment Mask a few times but I still can't seem to get on with it. The mask itself seems to be runny, but when applied it's really difficult to apply to the skin, even with a brush. On the plus side, the mask does leave my skin feeling a lot softer and smoother after use. And I'm looking forward to trying out more masks from Kathleen Natural.
