Lulu & Marula have the most gorgeous products, making it a real treat to use. They live by 4 simple principles and I absolutely resonate with each and every one of them...
SIMPLICITY IS THE NEW AWESOME
I totally agree! We can so often and easily over complicate our routines resulting in unhappy skin & no results. L&M have created multi-tasking products that deliver everything you need from hydrated, glowy, dewy skin!
NATURAL IS POWERFUL
Lulu & Marula uses only plant-based ingredients that actually work. They're as passionate about results as they are about nature, and don't believe that you have to compromise one for the other.
RELISH SIMPLE PLEASURES
Oh how we love a daily ritual - a moment of calm in everyday life. That is why L&M have created a sensory experience, from balancing to calming.
Lulu & Marula doesn’t test on animals, use minimal glass and cardboard packaging that can be recycled or reused.
Let's Dive straight into a full review of the Lulu & Marula products I own:
Starting with Skincare
Balancing Cleansing Balm
My absolute favourite from the brand! I fell in love with this product a year ago and it has been a beautiful addition to my routine. It's ability to melt away makeup, SPF and the days dirt/pollution is so satisfying. It makes pre-cleansing or double cleansing so enjoyable. From the texture to scent - it's heavenly! The oil to milk technology leaves the skin clean, soft & glowing. Contains Bergamont, Sweet Orange & Neroli which warm your spirit and detox the skin. The perfect way to end off the day!*Tip: Use a warm, dampened microfibre cloth or mitt to assist in removing, this allows for better results. R360
Purifying Treatment Oil
I have slowly learnt to love a facial oil, thanks to this one! This oil is suitable for reactive, oily or acne prone skins. Containing 1.5% Salicylic acid which helps decongest & gentle exfoliate the skin. This helps prevent blockages resulting in breakouts. Olive Squalene helps hydrate the skin while maintaining our oil production. Resulting in a happy equilibrium of moisture & oil in the skin. *Tip: Apply after your moisturiser to amplify the benefits of your moisturiser. Due to this being a dense oil, it still will be able to penetrate through your moisturiser. I like to apply 2-3 drops before sunscreen which allows for a dewy finish to my makeup routine. R430
Balancing Face Hydra Serum:
This is such a beautiful serum! This hydra serum is a beautiful lightweight one for all skin types. With a very light creamy consistency which leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and velvety smooth! It has collagen boosting & anti-ageing benefits due to the powerful anti-oxidants and marine actives to improve elasticity and firm the skin. It also contains hyaluronic acid which aids in hydrating the skin. I absolutely love using this during the day as it is light & hydrating but also offers you the anti-oxidant properties you want to fight off pollution/sun that cause free radical damage. Apply 1-2 pumps under your moisturiser. R500
Nourishing Face Mask & Polish
This is my newest L&M addition I recently purchased. This is a two-in-one mask and exfoliator which makes for the ultimate facial rejuvenation ritual. It contains a perfect mixture of French Pink Clay, Moroccan Rhassoul and Bentonite Clay to draw out toxins deep within the skin. Chamomile flowers help to calm redness and irritated areas. Hibiscus flower, Pineapple and Papaya enzymes exfoliate the skin, revealing a brighter, more radiant complexion. It is also rich in vitamin C & Rose-hip to assist in evening skin tone and improving hydration for a firmer, younger appearance. The colour & consistency is exquisite! Smells and looks like the perfect berry smoothie... R350
I am quite religious when it comes to applying a body moisturiser after a bath or shower, however I haven't been too good at exfoliating my body! This makes my moisturising pretty pointless at times. Without even noticing dead skin can build up and result in very little penetration of your product... That being said its time I put in the effort. Thanks to L&M they sent me the perfect winter combo!
Energising Body Polish
This invigorating body scrub has a fine blend of Sugar and Pink Himalayan Salt to buff away impurities and leave skin with a smoother, firmer appearance. #thatsmorelikeit
Exfoliation is great for increasing circulation which aids in combating stretch marks, cellulite and uneven skin texture, while sloughing away dead surface cells allows other beneficial ingredients to be effectively absorbed into the skin. This tropical scent is heavenly- Feels like I'm on an island sipping cocktails... Enriched with luxurious Mango Butter, Marula and Sweet Almond Oil to nourish and condition your skin, leaving it soft and glowing.
Calming Body Balm
This is such a lovely body balm to end off a long day. It deeply nourishes the skin and honestly leaves you feeling fabulously relaxed. The Mango, Avocado and Abyssinian butter are easily absorbed, and form a protective layer on the skin to prevent moisture loss. "With essential oils like Lavender, Bergamot and Geranium allow your mind and soul to be relieved of stress and tension."Perfect to repair dry, neglected skin during the winter months. R285
