So this month, I have selected some old favourites that I’ve tried before and some products that are new to me. Here is what I have chosen.
Weleda Men 24h Roll-On Deodorant
I like to switch up the deodorants that I use because, whilst I’m not especially sensitive to bicarbonate of soda, I find if I use it every single day, my armpits do complain. I love this deodorant. MrLovely uses it too, as does my teenage son (not the *actual* same one that I use, might I add). It’s super gentle on my skin and I like the way it smells. It’s not overtly masculine so women can easily get away with using it too. It smells really fresh and it’s long-lasting. You can buy yourself one here.
Hurraw Black Cherry Tinted Lip Balm
Hurraw! is my favourite brand of lip balm. I have a few of these, I have the night time one and the sunscreen one. I used to make my own lip balms in the past so I’m quite the fussy customer when it comes to the perfect consistency and these ones are bang on. They offer the perfect ratio of moisturisation to slipperiness. This tinted one is perfect if you want a touch of colour to your face without wearing a full-on lipstick. It’s a very pale tint as you can see from the swatch below. I’m really pleased with this and love this lip balm.
Biovène Barcelona Moisture Volume – Biotin & Apple Cider- Shampoo In-A-Bar
This shampoo bar smells absolutely gorgeous! It was the very first thing I noticed when my LoveLula delivery arrived. I love the packaging but the wording is super tiny and tricky to read. It’s quite a small bar so it would be perfect for travelling.
I’ve been obsessing a little over shampoo bars lately since reviewing this one. I had high hopes for this little bar but having used it once, my hair didn’t feel as good as it did after the My. Haircare one. I felt like it left a little residue in my hair as if I’d washed it with a normal bar of soap. Sadly, this one isn’t for my hair but I’ll be passing on to a friend with shorter hair who I think will love it.
Inika Living Colour Lipstick – Spring Bloom
I like the fact that this lipstick has a magnet holding it closed so it won’t come open in your makeup bag. I like to swatch on the outside of the case too. It’s a metal case so recyclable. The shade of this lipstick, Spring Bloom, is a beautiful neutral shade. It’s my perfect neutral because it’s pretty close to the natural colour of my lips.
It has a really lovely smooth and velvety texture to it and it is lovely and long-lasting. It also boasts being cruelty-free, vegan and organic. If you want to see a photo of me wearing it, it’s on my Instagram (swipe across to see).
Zoya Naked Manicure Mauve Perfector
Zoya is one of my favourite brands of nail polish. Their polishes are always really hard-wearing and long-lasting. When I selected this, I was expecting it to be a mauve nail polish. It isn’t. It gives your nails a really beautiful natural sheen and makes them look really healthy. I’ve been wearing the same coat for the last week and it’s lasted really well. I’m really pleased with this purchase.
SOiL – Remedy Rollers – Relax
SOiL is a brand that’s completely new to me. I chose this remedy roller because I sometimes suffer quite badly from anxiety when out and I wanted to be able to take this with me and pop some on when needed. I did and I did and it was fab. Smelling it made me feel quite comforted and I found it worked well. I was really impressed. I’ve had a look and SOiL have a large range of essential oils and ready blended oils so I’ll definitely be making further purchases from their range.
Thanks for reading. I’ll be writing my LoveLula Beauty Box Unboxing post next so stay tuned!
