Review: Natural Skincare from Love Lula: My August Choices - Acure Organics, Preserve, Sukin

Love Lula Natural Skincare Acure Sukin Preserve
How are you doing? I'm writing this with a stinking cold feeling very sorry for myself. The month started well as I went to Majorca but within 24 hours of being back on home turf I was struck down with germs. So moving on from my endless complaining, once again I find myself writing about products I chose from Love LulaI really hope you are finding these mini reviews of use, if you have any feedback leave me a comment or send an email.


Acure Organics Day Cream
The Acure cleanser I tried last month won me over so I decided to try the day cream. It’s become a firm favourite and I am really enjoying how it feels on my skin. I probably say this quite often when it comes to moisturisers but it gives me that nice balance between hydration without feeling too heavy. The scent is an added bonus, it’s citrus specifically orange and reminds me of chewy candy but without being overbearing or sickly. The only minor criticism I have over Acure is in the USA this brand is known for being affordable. Through Love Lula you will pay £26 which puts it up there with Antipodes and Trilogy but I guess that’s the price of importing goods. 

Preserve Recycled Plastic Eco Friendly Toothbrush (Medium) 
I wrote about Preserve back in 2012 and I’m slightly embarrassed to say it took me this long to try a toothbrush. The concept is great. Preserve make the handle from recycled yoghurt pots and they have a scheme to take back your old brush for recycling (applicable for both USA & UK more info on their website). I must admit I threw this toothbrush into my basket with no expectations and its ended up being my favourite find. The curve on the brush is fantastic as I’ve always struggled to reach my back teeth and with this it’s so easy. I ended up dragging out all my old brushes (I use them for cleaning around the home) and none of them had the same degree of angle. These are more expensive than my usual toothbrush but I’m sold on the fact that I can comfortably clean my teeth; it really has made a difference. Of course the eco-friendly nature of Preserve products is an added bonus. I’ve been using for a month and the bristles still look in good shape. My one criticism is you can’t pick the colour when you order.........yes I am that person! 

Sukin Super Greens Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser 
I’ve once again encountered an issue with Love Lula not listing ingredients correctly. I’ve ended up passing this moisturiser on to my husband because there are essential oil allergens on the product label which are not listed on Love Lula's site (F.Y.I - I avoid linalool that's why it matters to me). I've used other Sukin products so it is a brand I trust and recommend. My husband is a man of few words but he tells me he likes this moisturiser, he's happy to use it, his skin feels nice after application and he would replace when it runs out. I think it has a unisex fragrance which is not too overpowering and it’s affordable. I’d recommend as a good all rounder for most families.

Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned? What are your thoughts on them? If you missed my July picks then follow this link - Love Lula Reviews for July.
