Georganics Oil Pulling Mouthwash - English Peppermint - Review *




Georganics is a natural/organic, sustainable, and ethical oral care brand made in England. Georganics is a premium brand and in line with beauty trends and consumers' concerns. Established in 2015, Georganics had the goal of creating a full oral care range that is both natural and sustainable, using simple ingredients from pure and organic sources which are safe for everyone. All products are made from a selection of natural ingredients rigorously selected, the aim being to develop more innovative products using handmade formulas. Georganics is one of the very few true zero waste brands on the market and we pride ourselves to be using plastic-free and biodegradable packaging to ensure a minimum impact on our environment.

This blend of organic Coconut oil and Peppermint oil holds extremely effective anti-anaerobic properties, attacking bacteria that thrive in a low oxygen environment such as the mouth, and can lead to gum disease. For this reason, Peppermint is one of our favourite oils for use in oral care.

Firstly, I love the packaging of this English Peppermint Oil Pulling Mouthwash by Georganics from Love Lula, it looks so lovely. Secondly, I've never tried oil pulling before so it was a really strange experience for me. The recommended time for swishing is between five and twenty minutes, I managed a measly two minutes before I felt I couldn't carry on anymore! So I definitely need a bit more practice when it comes to oil pulling.

Fair Squared Period Cup Cleaner - Review*



Fair Squared offers cosmetic and personal hygiene products made from certified fairly traded and natural ingredients. They are an alternative trade organization that has fair dealings with producers from some of the world`s poorest countries and were one of the first companies to be labeled with the well-known Fairtrade logo.

With the period cup cleaner, the FAIR SQUARED menstrual cup can be easily cleaned before and after use. To use you should clean the cup with soap and water, then spray the period cup cleaner onto the cup. Wait for a few minutes before rinsing with clear water.

I thought this Fair Squared Period Cup Cleaner from Love Lula sounded like a great idea. It's a great product if you're after a light clean, but it's not good for a deep clean as it doesn't remove stains.

SCRUBD Energising Face Wash - Review*


It all started with soap, and today SCRUBD’s much-loved soap range has developed into our hand-crafted all-natural, organic triple-milled soap block, and is joined by our naturally effective Energising and Anti-Ageing skincare ranges.

Specially created for tired and dull-looking skin, this all-natural, non-drying formula gently cleanses the skin from surface oils and impurities, whilst leaving skin feeling rehydrated and energised. Eco-friendly renewable sugar cane tube.

This SCRUBD Energising Face Wash from Love Lula is now a great staple in my daily routine. Firstly, I like to wet my face a little bit and foam the product in my hands. I then massage the product into my skin and wash it away with water. The product foams up really well and gives my face a really fresh and clean feeling. After washing the product away my skin immediately felt softer.

White Rabbit Natural Skincare - Review*


White Rabbit is a premium vegan skincare brand that enriches its products with natural skincare ingredients to give you the best quality skincare aimed at tackling any of your skins needs. Melanie started White Rabbit Skincare in April 2014 after being diagnosed with the skin condition psoriasis. They had researched into traditional treatments for such skin conditions, and was horrified to discover that not only does our skin absorb quite a considerable amount of what we put onto it, but the majority of products on the market were full of irritants and synthetic ingredients. So Melanie set out to create a range of vegan skincare products that not only they could trust, but others could too, and help you feel confident in our own skin again. White Rabbit products are carefully crafted by hand by their skilled team to ensure the highest quality. All their products are natural skincare products, we never include animal-derived ingredients (such as beeswax), Parabens, SLS, Silicones, Mineral oils or derivatives of petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, artificial colours, or anything else confusing and synthetic. They believe in harnessing the therapeutic aspect of essential oils, base oils, butters and waxes in each of their products help to nourish and nurture your skin - that's what we call plant power! 


Unleash your glowing skin with our vegan beauty Lavender & Apricot Glycolic Cleanser. Full of natural skincare ingredients this gently exfoliates your skin leaving it smooth and fresh looking. The perfect addition to your daily skincare routine! even suitable for sensitive skin types! Glycolic Acid reacts with the sebum (natural oils) on the top layers of your skin, breaking down the oils and other substances that hold the cells together. As Glycolic Acid is made of tiny molecules, it is able to penetrate the skin deeply and easily. When the 'carrier' cleanser is washed off, dead skin cells are removed, revealing smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin.


A re-energising and fresh start to your day, Our Vegan beauty orange blossom & Aloe Vera Toner is the ideal addition to your daily skincare routine. The fresh and crisp scent of this toner is simply stunning. The purpose of a toner is to help you maintain clear and healthy skin.  It does this by removing any oils, dirt and debris left may be left behind by a cleanser, using a toner will help soothe, hydrate and nourish your skin all whilst restoring/maintaining its very delicate pH balance. Simply use between cleansing and moisturising by directly spraying onto face or using a cotton pad. It can also be used throughout the day as a refreshing skin pick me up.


The most soothing and nourishing cream goes to our vegan skincare Coconut & Rosehip calming cream. Full of natural skincare ingredients this cream is a miracle worker, helping tackle any of your skins problems whether that be irritated, dry, itchy or breaking out, this creams cooling and calming properties will leave your skin feeling softer and smoother - the perfect addition to your daily skincare routine. Simply massage into cleansed skin. Apply carefully with firm upwards strokes over the face and neck. Can also be used to soothe rashes, sunburn and acne.


I was kindly sent these lovely items from White Rabbit Natural Skincare to review. I find the quality of these products great and the packaging has been thought out well, as they all look amazing. I also love how they all smell naturally fresh, my favourite being the Lavender & Apricot Glycolic Cleansing Cream due to the Lavender (which is my favourite scent). These products would make a lovely and special gift for anyone!

Saint Come is widely known in France, in pharmacies, for its Arömspray products line. Airborne Aromatherapy diffusion allows easy use of essential oils to subtlety deodorize the home, car or office ambient air, naturally, while benefiting the inherent and psycho-censorial benefits of essential oils to the fullest.

This Aromaspray is a quick and easy way to freshen up any room. I like the fresh Tea Tree scent, but be careful not to spray too much as it can get quite strong. A must have in the bathroom to quickly freshen up the room.

Fair Squared Zero Waste Black Hairbands - Review*



Fair Squared offer cosmetic and personal hygiene products made from certified fairly traded and natural ingredients. They are an alternative trade organisation who have fair dealings with producers from some of the world`s poorest countries and were one of the first companies to be labelled with the well-known Fairtrade logo.

Made from organic cotton and fairly traded rubber these hair ties are gentle on the hair and leave no pressure points.

I've been on the search for some Earth friendly hair bands for a while now. I ended up coming across these Fair Squared ones on Love Lula. The hair bands have a good stretch and keep my thick hair in place when needed. I also like how the bands are flat which makes them soft on the hair. The only thing that I would change is the noticeable white label that's stitched onto the bands.

Organically Epic is a multi-award-winning business, launched in 2015, founded and owned by Jayne Clark-Denyer and Karon Robertson (a Daughter and Mother duo).

Compostable and biodegradable cotton buds made from sustainable bamboo and organic cotton.  Reusable, recyclable and compostable packaging. Once used the cotton bud can be put straight into your compost or recycled.

I switched to paper stick cotton buds a couple of years ago and I'll never look back. Switching from plastic stick cotton buds to either paper or bamboo is such an easy switch! I came across these bamboo stick cotton buds on Love Lula and thought they looked really cute. Using these cotton buds is pretty standard, other than the fact that you can pop them into your compost bin after use, unlike plastic stick cotton buds. I also love the fact that that pot is fully recyclable.

Alteya Organics Rose Otto Invigorating Shampoo & Conditioner Duo - 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 luxurious Rose Otto Shampoo is formulated to invigorate and rebalance hair, without stripping it of essential moisture. Rich in antioxidants and potent botanical extracts, it helps strengthen and repair the damage, improving manageability and vigour. The nourishing blend of invigorating Rose Otto and transforming Inca Inchi helps improve shine and reduce frizz. This rich conditioner, formulated with strand-building proteins and organic emollients, helps strengthen and mend hair and protects it from further damage. By providing deep moisture, it helps improve manageability and shine, instantly transforming dry, limp hair into soft, smooth and silky. It contains shine-enhancing Mullein Extract and moisturizing Babassu Butter for smooth and healthy-looking hair.

I had high hopes for this Alteya Organics Shampoo and Conditioner duo from Love Lula, but unfortunately, they're not in my top five duos. I find the scent to be pleasant for both products, but they're not my most favourite in the world. I feel like I need to use a lot of this shampoo to get my hair feeling clean, which meant I used the bottle up pretty quickly. And I find the conditioner to be too thick for my hair, even though it does leave my hair feeling silky soft. Overall, I personally wouldn't use these products again but they might be the perfect duo for you.
