This month’s LoveLula Beauty Box is worth £55 and as always contains some lovely natural and organic products. It’s the first time I received a tin of organic tea in LoveLula Beauty Box and I am really happy with it as I love herbal teas and tea blends.
The other highlight for me is Balm Balm Chamomile Hydrosol which is perfect for soothing irritated skin but it has other uses as well. I won’t be using nail polish and a base coat from Glossworks as I don’t paint my nails (shocking, I know!) so do keep an eye on a giveaway with these products coming soon.

Here is what I thought of this month’s products:
It’s the first time I hear of Beauty Brews, an organic tea company which offer a wide range of tea blends. I am really impressed with their offerings actually as I haven’t come across tea blends like this before. Just to mention some of the tea blends you will find in their range: Strawberry & Ginger, Orange & Cinnamon, Orange & Apple and Passionfruit & Ginger. Don’t you think they are all quite unusual? I do. They all come packaged in beautiful tins and I think they would make a lovely gift (I would certainly be happy to receive them as a gift!).
The blend I’ve got to try is Mistletoe & Nettle which I thought was quite nice. The main ingredients in the blend are as follow: mistletoe, whitethorn berries, nettle leaves, lemongrass, St. John’s Wort, Birch Leaves, Bean Peels and natural flavouring.
I’ve never tried mistletoe in herbal tea before so I don’t know what is supposed to taste like but I’ve tried nettle. When drinking this tea, I could definitely taste lemongrass but not so much of nettle. The tea was not bitter and definitely didn’t need any sugar. The flavour overall was great and I’ve been really enjoying this tea before bedtime.
I haven’t tried any of Balm Balm’s hydrosols before so I was really happy to see Balm Balm Chamomile Hydrosol in this month’s LoveLula Beauty Box. This chamomile hydrosol is actually Balm Balm’s best-selling floral water. It’s not only great on irritated skin (itchiness, rashes, etc.) but it’s also perfect for spritzing over bed linen to induce sleepiness.
I’ve been using Balm Balm Chamomile Floral Water like a toner – to remove the last traces of dirt after cleansing and make skin ready for a facial oil. I have also used it as a spritz to reduce skin redness caused by breakouts. I am yet to try it on other skin irritations and see how it performs.
Chamomile is well known for its soothing qualities so this floral water would be great for families but I am yet to test it fully to determine its true value.
I already have a few natural eye liners so I didn’t exactly need this one but it was good to test dark brown eye liner, nevertheless (the eye liners I have are all black).
PHB’s Natural Eye Liner is an award-winning organic product which is Vegan, Cruelty Free and Halal. It’s great for sensitive skin and contact lense wearers as its water-resistant formula is gentle enough for the most sensitive eyes.
I’ve been actually quite impressed with PHB’s Natural Pencil Eye Liner. It doesn’t add as much definition to the eyes as a black eye pencil so it’s great for daytime and more natural look. However, it still defines eyes well as its pigment is quite rich. It’s very smooth and easy to apply – you don’t have to press hard for the colour to show.
What really impressed me was how amazingly resistant it was to smudging. Even after I rubbed my eyes, the colour was still there, almost intact. If you are looking for a long-lasting natural eye liner this PHB eye liner is well worth considering.
As mentioned in the beginning, me and nail painting don’t really go together (just cannot be bothered!) so I won’t be using these two products from Glossworks. Saying that, you might be a big fan of nail polishes so you may want to check out Glossworks’ products here.
