When the April You Beauty Discovery line-up was announced I was super excited because the focus of this month’s box is Natural and Organic Beauty and the selection of products includes some of my favourite brands!
With a really solid selection of natural and organic beauty products, it was a tough choice, but I had my eye on a few standouts and I was really pleased that I was able to beat the rush on April 1st and make my selection. Read on to find out what treats I picked.
The first product I chose was the full sized Our Tiny Bees Lavender Hand Balm and Beeswax Lip Balm duo (RRP £7.95 & £3.95). This was a no-brainer as I already fell in love with this brand when I reviewed their Über Balm. Based in Sheffield (my home town) this friendly company harvests their very own beewax to use in their all natural products, which are packed full of nourishing, skin friendly ingredients including Almond oil, Coconut oil and honey.
The next product I picked out from the shortlist is the Scentered Sleep Well Therapy Balm (RRP £14.50); a beautifully fragranced balm containing Palmarosa, Lavender and Ylang-Ylang that you can use on the temples and pulse points to aid relaxation and help you drift off to a peaceful night’s sleep. It can also be used to calm anxiety or stress. Scentered sounds like a lovely company, not only producing gorgeous products, but also channelling 10% of its net profits into supporting Women for Women International, an organisation that empowers women to improve their lives, and rebuild communities in war-torn regions. I’ll definitely be checking out more from this brand!
As a bonus every box includes two extras; a 10ml sachet of Yours Truly Organics Fix Me! Repairing Serum and a 15ml sample of Linwoods Milled Organic Flaxseed Cocoa & Berries, which is a product I’ve tried before and is great sprinkled on porridge or added to a smoothie to boost the antioxidant content.
The April box is a must-have for natural beauty fans as it contains some fabulous products from well respected brands. At £6.95 including postage it is also a snip and you can feel good that you’re not only indulging your skin luxurious, eco-friendly products but also not denting your wallet too badly in the process!
You can still pick up the April You Beauty Discovery box here for £6.95 and the full selection of products is as follows: Age Defy+ Soft Buff Skin Exfoliator (10ml); Tisserand Sweet Dreams Bath Oil (20ml); he-shi Express Liquid Tan (50ml); Scentered Sleep Well Therapy Balm (5g); Heaven Skincare Hydrogel in Chamomile Desensitising, Peppermint Clarifying, or Orange Flower Cell Renewal (10ml); Spa To You Konjac Sponge (full size); Our Tiny Bees Lavender Hand Balm & Beeswax Lip Balm Duo (45ml & 15g). What will you pick?
