Natural Skincare at Love Lula: December - Skin & Tonic, Isla Apothecary, Ere Perez

One of the biggest problems I encounter with online shopping is when the item arrives I notice the packaging information differs from the website. It might seem insignificant to some consumers but when you have allergies and a vital piece of information is missing, it can be money down the drain. Unfortunately, on a few occasions Love Lula has let me down in this very way and it happened again with the Skin & Tonic Coco Mask. I spotted on the bottle three allergens which are not listed on the website (I also check S&T site and it's not noted there either). Allergens only have to be listed when they are at a certain percentage within the formulation so I just assumed it was irrelevant due to the the nature of the product. Cosmetic laws requires labelling of 26 fragrance allergens but I don't think that stretches to websites.


While I appreciate Skin & Tonic/Love Lula are not doing anything wrong its just extremely frustrating. I don't want the hassle of double checking everything by email before ordering. I have contacted everyone concerned, promises were made to get the situation addressed but I haven't seen the changes. I've been unable to test the mask for review and have passed it on to my sister. Perhaps at a later date I'll share her thoughts on my social media channels.

Moving on from the mask, I can say I'm very happy with the Skin & Tonic Naked lip balm. A brand that offers a fragrance free product will always receive praise from me. The ingredients are simply shea butter, beeswax and coconut oil, all of which are hydrating for skin. It might have been nice to see a vegan formulation but beeswax isn't something I've completely eliminated from my skincare routine. I find this lip balm comfortable to wear, I enjoy having no flavour and the packaging works well for application.

I've been banging on about Ere Perez non stop recently and I ordered another Carrot Colour Pot in Holy. I actually featured this in another article so I won't go into great detail again but I really like these multipurpose products.

I've seen many people speak highly of Isla Apothecary so that prompted me to try something from their range. I opted for the Ritual Pulse Point Therapy but it's a naughty one because it does contain linalool. You're probably all confused why I'll test this but not the mask. Linalool can trigger my dermatitis and I currently have eczema on my face so I can't take the risk to worsen my situation. I've been able to tolerate the pulse point on my wrists. The blend of ingredients is lovely and includes coconut oil, roman chamomile, eucalyptus and lavender. I find the aroma pleasant and soothing. If you're someone who enjoys using aromatherapy for headaches, stress etc then I'd recommend checking out Isla Apothecary.

Have you tried any of the products mentioned?
