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.

Blending Neem, Tea Tree and Lemongrass oil, our Neem soap is good for drawing out impurities, keeping the skin clean with antibacterials and leaving it with a moisturising touch. An effective way of getting your skin’s radiance back, is by using a cleanser with natural antibacterial abilities, that will remove the oil but not drain your skin of its moisture. 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.

Natura Siberica Gentle Face Peeling - Review*



Made with adaptogenic herbs and plants, this range of face, hair and body care was born in Siberia.
Featuring wild-harvested ingredients, sourced from unspoilt landscapes, Natura Siberica work with local tribes, bringing about positive changes in their lives. To survive the extreme Siberian conditions, endemic and adaptogenic herbs and plants synthesize highly protective active ingredients and have extraordinary antioxidant properties, which offer unique health and beauty benefits.

A gentle face peel with Aralia Mandshurica, Meadowsweet, AHA-acids and Vitamin F gently exfoliates and renews skin to improve the complexion. Our gentle face peel reinforces the skins protective functions, making it smooth and supple. Aralia Mandshurica protects skin from external factors while Meadowsweet restores skin’s natural regenerative functions. AHA-acids gently exfoliate skin while Vitamin F facilitates cell renewal, making skin firmer and more elastic.

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. We believe in nature, honesty and transparency, and your right to know what goes into the products you buy. Our vision was to bring the expertise of the apothecary and our holistic approach to health and beauty to people and communities.

Our best selling organic oil-free cleanser gently removes even the most resistant waterproof make-up. It conditions your lashes while hydrating and protecting the delicate eye area. 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.

For over 25 years, Lavera has manufactured all-natural skincare and cosmetics to the highest quality standards.

Enamel-safe whitening toothpaste with fluoride. Naturally reduces stains, strengthens and remineralises tooth enamel. Contains 1400ppm sodium fluoride to help prevent cavities.

I came across this Lavera Basis Sensitiv Whitening Toothpaste on Love Lula. I've tried many toothpastes by this brand, which I have loved for a few years now. 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.

Benecos Mint Lip Balm - 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!

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.
