|Gifted| During these unprecedented times, we all could all do with more moments to relax, unwind and distance ourselves from the overwhelming situation we all find ourselves in, whether it be a change in working environment, home schooling or simply missing friends and loved ones as we all try and stay safe.
Thankfully, when it comes to talking a moment of self-care, Bumi Naturals have you covered with the Calm Box that is the perfect treat for the skin and senses alike, while also offering a great gifting solution to cheer someone up in these crazy times.
The Calm set contains 2x lavender bath melts, a body polish, body butter and scented candle to complete the full pamper experience. All the treats and packaging are plastic free, with a magnetic kraft giftbox holding all the items inside, safely nestled in shredded, brown paper which can be re-used or recycled. Each product comes with its own little tag, so you know exactly how to use each one, and has product information as well as full ingredients lists so you have all the information you need at hand.
Lavender Bath Melts
These gorgeous, little hearts may be small yet they are certainly mighty, with the performance of a bath oil and bath salt in one very pretty, heart-shaped bath time treat.
The bath melts combine lavender essential oil, dried lavender, Himalayan salt, organic cocoa butter and coconut oil to help relax the mind, draw out toxins from the body and soften the skin. The lavender aroma is perfectly balanced, providing the floral scent which is not too overpowering and brings a lovely calming experience to your bath time routine. They melt into the bath with ease, especially in a warmer bath at this time of year, and they leave the skin feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished after use.
Nothing says relaxtion quite like a candle, and when it comes to calming aromas, lavender is certainly at the top of the list.
The Calm Candle comes housed in a glass jar with aluminium lid and signature Bumi Naturals labelling which looks perfect with any decor. The candle itself is formulated with 100% natural soy wax, which promotes a clean, longer-lasting burn when compared to paraffin wax candles, and also boasts a wick made from cotton threads and paper, which is pre-coated with soy wax to stabilise the burn.
The scent is absolutely stunning, with organic lavender essential oil and a hint of sage filling the room with the most beautiful aroma that instantly calms the mind and really relaxes the soul. The candle is lasting a good amount of time and doesn’t take long to release the aroma into the room. This is the perfect accompaniment to my pampering, bath time routine and is a great scent for any season.
Body Polish: Hemp, Poppy & Lavender
I would say that Bumi Naturals have the most recognisable body polish on the green beauty market, with a texture that really is unlike any other.
The polish is formulated with hemp seed oil, vitamin e, shea butter and avocado oil to deeply nourish the skin, while poppy seed and pumice powder gently exfoliate different layers of skin to leave your body feeling silky smooth after use. The addition of lavender essential oil is delicate yet perfect to really pamper your skin and mind while allowing the natural aromas of the ingredients to still shine through.
The texture is what really provides such a great exfoliating experience, as the polish has a firm, dense texture that allows you to buff it into the skin with ease without it sliding or falling off the skin during use. Due to this, a little polish also goes a very long way and makes it incredible value for money. It leaves my dry skin feeling deeply moisturised and free from dry patches after use, and doesn’t cause any irritation at all. What I love most is how the results last for several days, making it one of my favourite products within my body exfoliating routine.
Body Butter: Avocado, Hemp & Shea
Nothing says skin pampering session staple like a great body butter, and as a dry-skinned girl, i’ve certainly tried a few!
What I love in particular about Bumi Naturals’ Body Butter is the decision to eradicate essential oils from the formulation which makes it a great choice for everyone, even those who have particularly sensitive skin. The body butter has a minimal INCI list, with just four ingredients of avocado seed oil, shea butter, hemp seed oil and vitamin e. Avocado seed oil is naturally rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E for overall skin health while hemp seed oil is high in magnesium and has very small molecules that helps the product penetrate deeper through those skin layers. Shea butter is of course one of the best butters to help lock in moisture and also makes your skin look and feel deeply moisturised without looking too greasy or feeling heavy on the skin.
The texture is so creamy, with a true buttery consistency that melts on contact, allowing you to buff it across your skin with ease, absorbing quickly after application. What I love most is the beautiful colour that really adds some vibrancy into your skin moisturising routine, leaving your body soft and smooth to the touch and looking incredibly nourished after just one use. Due to the lack of essential oils, the natural aromas of the natural and organic ingredients really take centre stage and adds to the lovely skin pampering experience.
The calm box has only added to my love of Bumi Naturals, as the brand continually impress with their range of natural, organic, vegan and cruelty-free products that deliver with each application. I love everything from the simplistic packaging that reflects upon the minimal, Earth-conscious ethos of the brand itself to the collection and packaging of the Calm box that makes it the perfect gift for someone special.
