Discovering LoveLula.com



I could come up with a few more productive ways to spend my Sunday than online beauty perusing, but hey, ain't that what they're for? My most recent discovery is the edited selection of natural and organic beauty products that LoveLula.com have to offer. You won't see any parabens, SLS's or animal testing around these parts, just a hand-picked and tested bunch of brands that just so happen to include some of my favourites, though there's a whole lot more to it other than that one reason as to why I'll be logging in for future beauty buys...

Nothing says stingy like avoiding all delivery charges, but I think it sucks when an extra fiver is slapped on top only for my parcel to turn up 4 days later, so the fact that free worldwide delivery is offered is good news to me - I like that, I like that a lot, especially as I'm now outside of the UK and what's more, they offer a point scheme that puts any other to shame - earn 1 point for every £1 spent, every point earned is worth 10p when redeemed - let me do the maths here: spend £50 to earn £5, spend £100 to earn £10, you get the picture? Not only that, I've come across some bonus discount codes floating about and their 'Gift with Purchase' section sure enough tempts you into spending over the limit just to get a good sized freebie. But onto the brand selection - my recommendations? There's a few, so i'll keep this snappy...

Dr Bronner - A bottle of the 18-in-1 Liquid Soap should be in everyone's bathroom cupboard IMO. Free from your usual chemical suds, it still does a deep cleaning job and can be used to wash anything from your vegetables to your teeth - I use it for makeup brushes laundry and opt for the tea tree version for antibacterial properties, but the product comes in a whole range of scents.

Dr Lipp - A little multitasking tube of 100% pure lanolin that turns out to be far from greasy, but instead nicely nourishing for lips, cuticles, dry patches, eczema and burns.

Neom - In terms of body care, their offerings are seriously lovely, but their candles are on a whole other level of dreamy. Made with purely vegetable wax and essential oils, they burn without churning out soot, pollutants and toxins, and in effect help treat you holistically with aromas that smell all kinds of amazing.

Nuxe - A firm French pharmacy favourite with a lot to offer, but if you're to try one thing, make sure it's their Reve De Miel Lip Balm - thick, rich and slightly grainy, it exfoliates whilst adding a decent dose of moisture. 

Oskia - You know I've got all the love for this one, and would suggest a purchase on everything and everything, but as always I've got to give a shoutout to my faves: Renaissance Cleansing Gel, Renaissance Mask, Micro-Exfoliating Balm, and Eye Wonder.

Orico - Another brand I'm yet to delve into deeper, however, I've misted my way through their Streetwise Coco Spritz - a highly hydrating toner that consists of coconut water and cocoa seed. It's beautiful. Really, need I say more?

Pai - One of the best when it comes to organic, plant-based products. Sensitive skin gals look this way as these will be your high performance saviours, one of those being the Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser, I can only sing praises.

Rahua - Here's a haircare brand I'm yet to explore, but I've heard nothing but all good things in regards to their Omega 9 Hair Mask. Using all-natural rainforest-grown ingredients, their shampoos, sprays and serums protect and improve not only your hair, but the Amazon rainforest as with every purchase a portion is donated in order to prevent deforestation. 

REN - The one that takes up a good chunk of my skincare stash; Clarifying Toning Lotion, Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial and Glycolatic Radiance Renewal Mask name but a favourite few. 

Zoya - Free from chemicals and toxins, this brand is as natural as nail polish can possibly get - there are over 500 shades on offer and in terms of formula and wear, they definitely get the big thumbs up.

I'm not sure how or why it's taken me so long to stumble across this online gem of a store, but let's just say it's currently sat tight in my most visited tabs...

  5. I love this site, they have such a variety on indie brands! I would check Mels Millis. Though my fave for natural beauty is always beingcontent.com.
    Also to note I don't think they will be stocking REN for much longer since they sold to unilever and wont be classed a cruelty free :( x

  6. Unfortunately REN has just been sold to Unilever and therefore won't technically be classed as cruelty-free anymore :( Going to stock up now on all my favourites!
