I adore the Love Lula Beauty Box for so many reasons, but the main one is simple - it allows me to discover so many amazing natural brands that I had not previously heard of or been lucky enough to try.  One such brand is Apple and Bears, a luxury body care business that offers environmentally friendly and non toxic products that are sustainable, affordable, and certified.

This was one of the initial items I encountered in my Love Lula subscription -- back in January last year I opened my very first box, and inside was a deluxe sample of the Pomegranate & Aloe Vera Luxury Body Silk.  I have never been too keen on lotions, as I usually find them wet and slow to sink in.  That was not the case with Apple and Bears.



The formula wasn't thin like other body lotions I have used, and it immediately soothed my calves when I applied it.  Even without having shaved my legs for several days my skin felt smoother!  But my favourite thing about this product wasn't the firming qualities of the ingredients, it was the smell.  It seriously made my mouth water, as it was luxuriously fruity without being overly sweet.  The scent lingered for a long time, and it made me look forward to summer when I could wear less layers and enjoy the body silk to the fullest.

I was sad when I finished up my sample, but luckily it was not too much longer after that when I was surprised by yet another Apple and Bears product in my monthly subscription box!  This time, rather than a lotion, we all received a 50ml bottle of the Honey & Hemp Body Wash.

I would not have believed it was possible to top the fragrant notes of pomegranate in the body silk, but this product really surprised me.  Who would have thought anything with hemp could smell so good!?  I think all the added essential oils help create the lovely sweetness in this body wash, but I honestly find it hard to pin down a description for this scent -- it is just delicious.  The ingredients here are even better than in the body silk (though both are pretty clean!), and the soap lathers well with the help of gentle surfactants.

The body wash feels really moisturizing, and I really noticed a difference after using it for several weeks - the few dry patches I had on my knees and elbows had disappeared, and my skin seemed more radiant and healthy.  I had not been a huge advocate for body wash before, and never really thought something so simple could make such a difference.  What can I say, this one has made me a convert!



I have just finished my 50ml sample of the body wash (I know, it has been ages! It took me a while to initially start using it to be fair), and luckily Love Lula are offering 20% off all Apple and Bears products until April 6th.  No code is needed, so all you have to do is add the items you want to your cart..  The hardest decision for me will be deciding on which scents I want to buy, since there are four: Pomegranate & Aloe Vera, Honey & Hemp, Grapefruit & Seaweed, and Bergamont & Green Tea.

So help me out! Which options should I choose?  Do you have a favourite Apple and Bears fragrance?  Please let me know in the comments, otherwise I might just end up ordering all of them, and that is something my bank balance won't be all to pleased about.

And if you want to order while this sale is still on, be sure to head to Love Lula and check out before next Friday!  You can even make use of their free delivery so you don't have to pay extra for shipping:

  3. I would go with grapefruit and seaweed as I adore the smell of seaweed. So uplifting and refreshing and combined with the zingy citrus, it's a clear winner. My second choice would be bergamont and green tea. I think these are another fantastic combo. Green tea is really light and floral and bergamont is quite earthy. Both good tea scents.
