My Latest Love Lula Picks

maj 17, 2018

Hello lovelies! How are you all doing? As you may or may not know I've been working with Love Lula for quite some time now and today I wanted to share with you what products I picked in April to test out and review. I'm not sure which product should I mention first so let's just follow the alphabet and start with E for Ere Perez.

Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation shade Haze. Swatch, consistency. Love Lula.
Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation* is a lightweight water based vegan foundation. Enriched with quinoa to help heal inflammation & increase elasticity. Blackcurrant is added for antioxidants and vitamins. These ingredients rejuvenate while helping to reduce redness, pigmentation and fine lines. This foundation is available in three shades which really isn't a lot especially nowadays when brands launch foundations with many different shades, even 40! When it comes to minimal amount of shades I usually go for the lightest colour and hope for the best. So the lightest shade of the three is Haze and it's actually a very good match for my skin. Haze has a yellow undertone which works for me but do be vary if you have pink or neutral undertone. The foundation has a runny texture and goes perfectly with the name "quinoa water". It also feels lightweight on the skin which is always wonderful. Another positive thing is the gorgeous frosted glass bottle and I like the pipette too. In many ways this foundation actually reminds me of the well-known Gressa Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation. I didn't really get on with that one and unfortunately it's the same with the Ere Perez one. The foundation gives a light coverage and more of a matte finish. I don't mind that at all but I do also have to use a concealer on top. Which is perfectly acceptable for me! The thing that bothers me is the consistency itself. I can't seem to master this foundation and it just doesn't look all that great on my skin. I've tried it in a few different ways and the best way is to first apply it with your fingers (but be quick about it because it dries quickly when you apply it with fingers) and then additionally blend it all in with a face brush. It depends on the day, sometimes I quite like it and then other times it makes me want to wash my face and use another foundation. Honestly it's not my fave. Sometimes it can also look cakey and it's also not that long-lasting. It baffles me because the first time I tried it I really liked it - I actually did a first impression on my insta stories and said it was lovely so I'm sharing this with you because my experience with it has changed. I can't say I recommend it but I did read some positive reviews (and negative as well) so if you can get a sample I would go for that first. Check it out here.
Hurraw Lip Balm Sun Balm SPF 15 Tangerine Chamomile, organic, vegan, raw. Love Lula.
Hurraw! Sun Balm SPF 15 Tangerine Chamomile* is a must-have lip balm for summer! We are always talking about face and body sunscreens which are both so important but then we mustn't forget about them lips. Skin on the lips is delicate and thin and yes, of course you can apply a face sunscreen on them but it's better to have a nice nourishing lip balm with spf. I'm obsessed with the scent of this product! I can't remember when was the first time I tried Sun Balm but since then I always use it on my summer beach holidays & the scent always brings me back to hot sunny days by the beach. Ah love. I think it's better if I just share Hurraw's description of the scent: "Juicy tangerine with hints of vanilla...the unique scent of roman chamomile lends a calming note. Packed full of amazing cold pressed oils to moisturize, protect and heal." It's lovely! The active ingredient is Non-Nano Uncoated Zinc Oxide (10%) which is my absolute favourite UV filter. It provides both UVA and UVB protection, it provides a physical barrier, it's anti-bacterial and perhaps most importantly - it's also coral reef safe. There are also oils of Safflower, Coconut, Raspberry, Pomegranate, Sea Buckthorn, Cacao Butter, Candelilla Wax and more. It glides on silky smooth, it can give a bit of a white cast if you apply many swipes, it's creamy and nourishing. It's just so gorge! The balm is vegan and made with almost 77% organic ingredients. Love. Get it here.
Isla Apothecary Refine + Radiate Beautifying Face Mask. Turmeric, Sandalwood, Coconut Milk. Love Lula. Mask + cleanser.Isla Apothecary Refine + Radiate Beautifying Face Mask. Turmeric, Sandalwood, Coconut Milk. Love Lula powder
Isla Apothecary Refine + Radiate Beautifying Face Mask* is a product I wanted to try for a little while now and I'm really liking it. Described as: "A gentle but powerful trio of Coconut Milk, Sandalwood and Turmeric to soothe, restore moisture, and nurture even the most sensitive skin to greater resiliency." I love the simplicity of this mask and the three ingredients are all I wanted to have in a mask. First is organic, food grade Coconut Milk powder, which is rich in vitamin A and C, and is mostly known for its moisturizing and soothing benefits. It's a stunning ingredient and I know that Marie (from And The Color Green) loves using it in her masks (see here). Second ingredient is Red Sandalwood powder which is especially helpful for oily skin types and provides reliefs to all skin irritations from acne to sunburn. The last but most certainly not least is organic Turmeric which I L O V E. It's anti-inflammatory, skin brightening, anti-bacterial, rich in antioxidants and supposedly also a powerful humectant (locks in moisture and promotes suppleness). The mask smells like Turmeric and Coconut and has this vibrant & rich orange colour. I love mixing this mask with some water, honey and a drop or two of an oil of choice. I leave it on my skin for at least 15 minutes, but usually more. The lovely Roberta (@beauty.ro), who is actually the reason I got this product, told me that she also uses it as a cleanser and it works lovely like that too. One thing to mention is that I don't recommend using it in the morning as a mask (mixed only with water) because it can lightly tint your skin yellow. That's why I also like to mix it with honey and oil but I still prefer to use it in the evening. This mask is moisturizing (because of the coconut milk), makes my skin very soft and smooth and it's also brightening (which is especially noticeable with regular use). Also don't you just love the packaging and the design? That rose gold label is just so chic! You can get it here.

You can find all these products at Love Lula.

Much love to you all,

Jana xx
