LOVE LULA FEBRUARY BOX



MyChelle Dermaceuticals Sensitive Facial Pack: In this pack came the Pure Harmony Cleanser, Pure Harmony Mask, Pure Harmony Serum, and Pure Harmony Cream. Considering it was a range designed for sensitive skin, it didn’t feel particularly gentle. The mask is meant to be kept on for 20 minutes but I had to take it off because it stung and made my eyes water a lot (a problem I don’t think I’ve ever experienced before). As for the Cleanser, Serum and Cream, I thought they were OK but didn’t feel particularly gentle or do much. I actually think my skin looked more inflamed after using this line!
Would I buy? Nope.

GlamGlow YouthMud Tingle Exfoliate Treatment: I really felt like I was getting down to the elements here. I sort of had fun smearing the muddy mask all over my face and was a little surprised at the pieces of foliage that also came out of the tube (I presume they were tea leaves). It goes on wet, becoming tighter and tighter, tingling as it dries into a lighter sheet of mud (which is then scrubbed off with water). I enjoyed the process, feeling like I was getting beautified over the 10 minutes I kept it on, however I can’t say that my skin benefitted particularly from it.
Would I buy? I don’t think so

EOS Lip Balm Strawberry Sorbet: I’ve come across these several times online but have never been tempted. I found this however, to be great! Delicious smell, not much of a taste and really conditioning. Lovely. Plus the shapes quite fun.

Would I buy? I have done and will continue to!
