The Natural Research
Over the last few years, I’ve spent a lot of time researching and curating lists of brands and products that I feel comfortable using. It wasn’t a five-minute job. I had to research the ingredients in the products, research if the ingredients they used are considered safe for use in cosmetics, if they’re ethical and if they’re “good”. Then I had to decide if, after all that, it was still a product I would feel comfortable using and allow my children to use. It was not easy.
Feeding My Subscription Addiction
I love subscription boxes. It’s like a present arriving every month because you never know what new gems you’re going to discover inside them. I’ve had so many subscription boxes this year, but the LoveLula one is consistently my favourite and the one I’ll continue to subscribe to. It really is great value for money (starting at £13.95 per month) and I know I never need to worry about the ingredients in the products.
I happened upon LoveLula, by chance, last year whilst on one of my product seeking missions (there have been a lot!). I ordered one of their subscription boxes and been a huge LoveLula fan ever since.
LoveLula Natural Beauty Club
A few months ago, LoveLula started up a Facebook group called LoveLula Natural Beauty Club. I joined it a couple of months back but I’ve been joining in with the chats more and more lately. I’m really enjoying chatting to people and reading about what products they’re using, what’s working for them and about their various new discoveries. There are lots of other knowledgeable people and brains to pick if you have a question. There are even some amazing skincare product founders in the group, such as Kimberly Sayer, Dee Stein from ESSE and Ben Lyons from Lyonsleaf. It really is the best place to go for natural beauty chats. Everyone in the group is like-minded as we all have a similar ethos about skincare ingredients. It’s a great little community.
