Since I began blogging last year my awareness about what goes into beauty products and the impact certain ingredients may have in our bodies has really grown. Nowadays I’m much more likely to check labels to see what is inside a particular product and clearly many others are doing the same, as a result a wealth of organic, ethical and natural beauty brands have sprung up.
Naturisimo is a company that stocks only natural beauty products and recently they began bringing their customers Discovery Boxes – neat little boxes chocful of sample and travel sized products priced at just £9.95 – that give a taster of what they offer. Each box has a theme and the most recent one is the very aptly named Travel Essentials which, containing a great array of top-to-toe treats, is perfectly timed for the summer holidays.
Giovanni Shampoo & Conditioner (60ml each) – First out of box is a travel-sized shampoo and conditioner duo by Giovanni, which is a brand I’d not heard of before. The shampoo is from the Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat range and includes an invigorating blend of ingredients that really do leave the hair and scalp feeling thoroughly cleansed and revived. The conditioner is from their 50:50 Balanced range which promises to add moisture, defrizz and leave the hair looking glossy and full of health.
Dr Bronner’s Rose Liquid Soap (59ml) – I’ve long been wanting to try Dr Bronner’s famous soap which is said to have eighteen uses, including household cleaning and laundry washing as well as being kind enough for the face and body, so this is one of the products that sold the box to me. Personally having smelt this gorgeous rose scented liquid soap, with its soft, gentle lather, it’s far too good to use as a cleaning product!
Barefoot SOS Face & Body Rescue Cream (25ml) – Silly me thought this was a foot cream until I read the packaging properly and discovered that it is actually a multi-purpose cream that can be used on the face and body to moisturise, soothe and hydrate the skin. Combining high quality botanical extracts, pure natural moisturisers and precious essential oils it helps provide instant relief to dry, sensitive skin and can also treat eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
Balance Me Moisture Rich Face Cream (25ml) – This 99% natural face cream from Balance Me promises to plump, protect and prime your skin. Enriched with a trio of butters and oils including organic shea, camellia and rosehip, it’s a little heavy for my oily skin but is perfect for nourishing the delicate skin on my décolletage. A bespoke blend of rose and benzoin essential oils provides a gorgeous scent.
Caudalie Divine Oil (15ml) – French brand Caudalie is a favourite of mine and their Divine Oil, which I featured previously, especially so. A luxurious multi-use oil, I love the sheen it lends to the skin whilst providing deep-down hydration and nourishment; just what you need after sun exposure. And like its name it smells divine!
Caudalie Divine Legs Tinted Body Lotion (5ml) – I own a full size Caudalie Divine Legs already having reviewed it last year, and it’s one of my go to products when my legs are looking a little pasty and in need of some colour. This tinted moisturiser, packed with Caudalie’s unique blend of botanicals, gives the body a lovely natural glow without the commitment of fake tan.
The Travel Essentials Discovery box includes the perfect mix of key beauty essentials; whether you’re staying at home or jetting off somewhere sunny this summer Naturisimo has all bases covered. If you’re already a fan of Green beauty, or even if you just want to dip your toes into the world of organic, natural and cruelty-free beauty, at £9.95 this box is fantastic value. Beautifully packaged it also makes a lovely yet inexpensive gift.
The Travel Essentials Discovery Box is available now at Naturisimo.
