April’s You Beauty Box celebrates natural and organic beauty with the creme de la creme of eco-friendly beauty brands featuring in the line-up. From skincare to haircare, makeup and body care there is a product for every eco-concious beauty fan out there and I couldn’t wait to make my selection when April 1st came around!
The Natural & Organic shortlist really contained some fantastic products, I was spoilt for choice and definitely torn between a few of the products. After a few minutes of agonising I made my choices then eagerly waited for my box to arrive so I could delve inside and take a closer look. Join me as I unveil the contents!
My first pick was AD Skin Synergy Organic Rose Geranium Nourishing Night Treatment Facial Oil (50ml, RRP £38). I’m really excited to try this oil as it smells beautiful and being a night oil means I can continue to use my other favourite facial oils during the day as I please! This oil is a limited edition which takes all the qualities of the original Nourishing Night Treatment Oil including nourishing and softening rosehip oil, hand-picked and cold-pressed to preserve its valuable nutrients, and blends it with Rose Geranium for a truely relaxing aromatic experience.
As a avid gardener i’m never without a hand cream and my next choice the Organic Pharmacy Marigold & Comfrey Hand & Nail Cream (50ml, RRP £21.95) sounds perfect for soothing and healing chapped hands. Enriched with nourishing Shea Butter and Aloe along with with healing herbs of Marigold and Comfrey the hand cream is light and instantly absorbed making it deal for every day use and fantastic if you dislike greasy hands.
As usual each box also includes a handful of bonus items which this month include a Neom Organics London Daily Energy Boosting Burst Capsule and a Daily De-Stress Burst Capsule, which are designed to be used whenever you want to surround yourself with a feeling of calm or need a shot of energy, and a HASK Argan Oil or Keratin Protein Deep Conditioner (50ml). HASK is an affordable haircare range that is available widely in the USA and it is very much a new kid on the block over in the UK but already i’m noticing their products creeping onto the high street. Having tried one of their shampoos and hair treatments already I would say they’re definitely a brand to watch and I’m looking forward to trying their deep conditioning treatment!
Other products also available for selection this month are; Urban Veda Purifying Daily Facial Wash (20ml), Kneipp Sweet Dreams Herbal Bath Oil (20ml), Balance Me Radiance Face Mask (30ml), Dr.Organic Organic Hemp Oil Intensive Eye Serum (15ml), Sönd Hydrating Face Spray (10ml), and INIKA Organic Eyeliner in Black Caviar (Full size).
This is a fabulous lineup for any beauty fan, but particularly if you love natural products, and for £6.95 per month I really don’t think you can go wrong with this fantastic little beauty box. The concept of picking your products is also genius meaning you’ll never need be lumbered with a dodgy coloured lipstick or a skincare product that doesn’t suit your skin type. Unbelievably my little box had a value of approximately £60 excluding the extras!
