What was in my box?
This months theme is Hydrate. Inside this box are six products.
The card has details about all the products and discount codes if you decide to buy.
Sofia Latif: Facial Oil (sheet lists price as £20.00)
This product was shortlisted for the Free From Skincare Awards 2018. This is a night oil that you can use to massage you cleansed face before bed and lift your senses. You can also add a drop to your morning moisturizer.
I have got a lot of facial oils at the moment but I will try it out before the end of the month so I can let you know how I got on with it.
Bowe Organics: Organic Lash Oil (sheet lists price as £19.99)
This product was also shortlisted for the Free From Skincare Awards 2018. You massage the oil into clean dry lashes and it helps them become thicker and longer.
It sounds very promising. I will need to get using this right away as I’ve booked in for a lash tint and lift at the end of the month and I’m not sure I can use it after that.
The Cosy Cottage: Mango Nutter & Lemon Foot Balm (sheet lists price as £5.00)
An intense foot balm to smooth and hydrate feet with mango butter, coconut oil, aloe vera and lemon oil.
I’m hoping this smells so good that I can entice my husband into giving me a foot rub *fingers crossed*.
Lucidlure: Allava Hair Mask (sheet lists price as £5.50)
This hair mask is suitable for all hair types. You can either leave it on for 2 hours or over night for a deep condition.
I have never used a hair mask before. I’m excited to see how I get on and whether this is something I should add to my beauty regime.
Refreshing Peppermint Facial Mist (sheet lists price as £4.25)
This is a floral water for refreshing your face throughout the day to pick you up when feeling sluggish in the heat.
I recently bought the Naturismo limited edition box which included Odacite, black Mint Cleanser. I’ve found the cleanser to be an amazing refreshing way to start the day and love the minty smell. That’s why I think I am going to get on well with this facial mist. Plus, it is just what I need in this hot weather and being heavily pregnant.
Peppermint & Lemongrass Pulse Point Oil (sheet lists price as £4.25)
This is for sharpening your senses and to treat headaches. Also helps treat cold or flu, jet lag, and combat tiredness and stress. Simply apply to pulse points.
This sounds really good and just what I need as I am finding it increasingly hard to stay awake at work by the afternoon – I am counting down the days to maternity leave (24 July – not long now).
Would I recommend?
Yes, another amazing selection of high quality products and by brands I’ve not heard of before.
I’m keen to use the Bespoke Aroma products and can’t believe how affordable they are. I’m looking forward to using the foot butter. I’ve never used a hair mask or lash oil, so I am unsure how I’ll get on with those. I never would have thought to buy them. My bathroom cabinet is full of facial oil, I doubt I’ll get around to using this one this month.
All the products meet the promise of clean, green and cruelty-free – so if that’s something you desire, this is a great box for you.
Reflect on previous box
I’ve had a month to use the products I received and share my thoughts.
This is how I got on using the products from my April box:
Sadly, I have been a bit stressed at work and returning home too exhausted to even pamper myself which has resulted in some products not getting used as expected. In addition, the past two weekends my little boy has been ill which steals my time and energy. Hopefully, June will be a better month and I’ll find a little bit of ‘me’ time.
A.S Apothecary: Wild Beauty Balm (website lists price at £42 for 30mls & sheet lists price as £21.00)
This has easily been my favourite product in this box. It is quite pricey so I am not sure if I will be able to afford it on maternity leave but it definitely will be on my wish list.
Just Be Botanicals: Loved Aromatherapy Chocolate (website & sheet lists price as £2.75)
I knew right away that this wouldn’t be for me as I don’t enjoy the bitter taste of dark chocolate. However, it is the most beautiful chocolate I have ever seen. It has rose petals within the bar and looks very elegant.
I’m going to share give it to my mum (she won’t mind that I had a little nibble). She’s not usually a chocolate person but does indulge sometimes in dark chocolate, plus, I need to find out how her holiday went.
Isla Apothecary: Neroli Body oil (website lists price as £32 for 100mls & sheet lists price as £4.50)
I haven’t used this. I put it in my hospital bag as it is a handy travel size bottle. I’m sure it will be lovely after my post birth shower.
Bodhi & Birch: Desert Rose Facial Oil (website lists price as £38 for 15mls and sheet lists price as £9.95)
I’ve just got too many face oils at the moment that I haven’t had a chance to use this.
Lucky Cloud: Nourishing Cleansing Balm (website and sheet lists price as £8.00)
This is the sort of cleanser I do really love but I’ve got a few cleansers on the go at the moment so I’ve decided to save this one for later in the year. I’m afraid I haven’t tried it out.
Roques O’Neil: Himalayan Detox Bath Salts (website and sheet lists price as £10.00 travel size)
A salt bath is very healing so this is in the draw in my bathroom ready for a relaxing bath when I return from hospital. I remember feeling very sensitive after delivering my son and a salt bath did help soothe and make me feel better.
Botany Blend: Meru Facial (sheet lists price as £2.50 sample size)
Again, I’ve just got too many face oils at the moment that I haven’t had a chance to use this.
