Love Lula Beauty Box October 2015

Today my Love Lula Beauty Box arrived. Sadly I am going to unsubscribe for a while.
 The first item is a full sized packet of Cleansing Wipes from the Yes To range. Although I quite like the products I have tried from the Yes To range, I am not a fan of cleansing wipes. We have also had different varieties of these in previous boxes. I will more than likely use these on the kids grubby mitts.
A 7ml sample of Pommade Divine. I have tried this all purpose medical balm before and really like it. Although this may seem a small sample, a little goes such a long way.
 These lip balms by Fair Squared are really good, but I think this is the third I have received from Love Lula. I am giving this to my daughter as there are only so many I can use. Having said that, these are super gentle and I am more than happy for her to use it.
A full size Frankincense Deep Cleansing Balm by BalmBalm. I have tried this before and really like it. This is a very good cleansing balm and like all BalmBalm products they are very affordable too. I just have a lot of their products courtesy of my LoveLula subscription.
The final item is a sachet of Dr Bronners Lemongrass Lime Shikakai Soap. Dr Bronners liquid soaps are a staple beauty product for me, but I haven't actually tries the Shikakai soaps. I will be interested to see how these compare. 
 
There are some products in this months box that are really good and as a whole it is good value for money. If I were a new subscriber to Love Lula I would be really pleased with this, as a regular subscriber it just doesn't feel very exciting.
 
 I feel like I am guaranteed to get something by either John Masters, Yes To, BalmBalm, or Fair Squared, and either a hand cream or a lip balm. All of these products have been lovely, but I have a stash of very similar products. This is a shame as Love Lula has an extensive range of brands, and the beauty box does not show case the online store's full potential. As I said earlier, it is time for me to take a break from my subscription. I will continue to shop from Love Lula because of the choice of products and their excellent customer service.

  1. I am always tempted by your beauty box reviews! I haven't subscribed to a box for well over a year now. I feel your frustration with this box - although the products may be great, you do want a bit of variety...

  2. That's exactly how I feel Carrie.. It won't do my purse any harm to have a rest though x

  3. This box looks a bit more interesting this month...but I have lots of all of these type of products to use up. Shame they can't seem to get samples from more unusual brands which they stock.

  4. I have cancelled my subscription now. Every time I get an email with a new brand I wonder why they aren't including them in the boxes.

  5. You make some very valid points about brand and product repetition in beauty boxes. I see it myself in those I often buy. Advent calendars too (You Beauty always has 1 or 2 items that crop up year in, year out). GWP offers (Space NK) and in the monthly mag beauty freebies (L'occitane and Nails Inc frequently feature). I totally agree that a wider mix would be welcome! 😊 Tx

    1. I looked at the You Best advent calender and thought the same. I don't mind so much with the GWP because you know in advance, so buy because you think it's worth it. Variety is definitely the spice of life x

    2. Lol, I'm eating my words a bit now as this year's You Beauty advent calendar definitely looks fresh with brands and products that haven't featured before -I mention this in my post this week. One of the worst culprits of repetition is the Selfridges one, I feel. That slipped my mind earlier! Yes, variety is the spice of life. Tx

  6. I totally agree with you, I had a subscription to the Amarya boxes and when I took it out you got a full sized product and it was varied so I loved them. Now however they seem to include the same brands month in month out. Have you seen the sneaky peek of this months Pure Natural box, I am so tempted, great brands and full sizes as well as trials Xx

  8. If you want to buy a beauty box then before going for any of the skin care or beauty products do not forget to have a look on the feedback and reviews given by the previous users. If they sounds good you can freely go for that beauty box.
