I’m Amber, writer and founder of natural and organic beauty blog Amber’s Beauty Talk. I’ve been chosen as the expert in letting you know what’s new at Love Lula. Each month I’ll be sharing a new brand or two that you’ll be able to find on the Love Lula website, details on their products & the occasional review from myself too. For my first post I’ve got all the details on You & Oil, so grab a cup of tea & have a read…
The You & Oil range consists of face, hair, body and beard oils which are all beautiful blends of vegetable oils, essential oils and plant extracts. Rich in fatty acids, vitamins, these oils penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to moisturise, nourish and balance.
“I am your skin. I depend on you. Whatever you do, I witness. I store all the information about you. Once in a while I need to remind you to feed me! Nourish me with food just for me.”
I was pleasantly surprised when a couple of products arrived on my desk as the boxes and packaging are such high quality. The bottles that the oils are housed in are sleek, white glass that look beautiful sitting on my bathroom shelf. I was expecting the bottles to be plastic so it was nice to discover a more eco, luxurious alternative.
I have been trying out the Nourish & Balance AntiCellulite Oil and the Nourish & Nurture Eye Makeup Remover from the range. Both are 100% natural and 99.8% certified organic by Ecocert which is a European certification body for skincare products.
The Anti-Cellulite Oil is rich in grapefruit essential oil to refresh skin and orange essential oil which is nourishing for dry areas. It also has Atlas Cedar essential oil which along with the motion of thoroughly rubbing the oil into your skin, helps to remove toxins from the body. The oil smells absolutely gorgeous, really uplifting and fresh. It’s a fairly thick oil in consistency however it sinks into the skin without feeling too greasy. I’m getting married next year and will be trying on wedding dresses soon, so I’ve been going to the gym more regularly and I use this oil after my workout sessions. I haven’t used it for long enough to comment on any results, cellulite-wise, however I will continue to use this on my arms and legs to help tone and moisturise my skin.
The Eye Makeup Remover is a lovely blend of soft cleansing oils such as apricot kernel, rice kernel and jojoba which gently remove make-up. It also has castor oil which is known for promoting hair growth so with continued use, you should see longer and strengthened lashes! This has a softer scent as there are no essential oils – just the four oils and Vitamin E. It has a slightly nutty scent and would be perfect if you have any allergies or sensitivities to essential oils or scented products. It removes makeup gently and efficiently without causing any irritation to my skin or eyes.
You & Oil’s products are fairly priced at £24.00 for a 50ml facial oil and £22.00 for 100ml body oils. They also have hair oils, beard oils, facial serums & oils in their range which are all available at Love Lula.
