|Gifted| If the current situation has taught us anything, it’s that letterbox gifting has been a welcomed gifting option to help show loved ones that we care, even if we haven’t been able to see them in person.
One brand that offers an exceptional array of letterbox gifts is The Natural Beauty Pot, not only offering a gift for every budget but also a scent preference to suit every lucky recipient. One letterbox gift that really caught my eye last year was the Pampering Self Care Letterbox Gift, a product which featured in my Natural Skincare Christmas Gift Guide 2020. The Pampering Self Care Letterbox Gift is incredible value for money, costing only £22 with free delivery direct to you, or the recipient. It contains 6 items that will not only pamper your skin but also boost your self-routine routine for the better. The pink-themed gift is perfect for all occasions and ages from teens to grandmas – and everyone in between, and is the hassle-free gift that keeps on giving.
I have really enjoyed the Pampering Self Care Letterbox Gift, not only as a great spa-at-home experience but also as a beautiful way to explore several products from The Natural Beauty Pot’s range of skincare goodness…
The Natural Beauty Pot: Rose Bath Salts
The Natural Beauty Pot’s bath salts are my go-to bath time treat thanks to their Epsom salt, essential oil and natural botanical creations that are a treat for the skin as well as the senses.
The rose variety are perfectly floral, with a balanced scent that is naturally sweet yet not too over powering. My skin is always left feeling soft and supple after use, with my mind and body feeling calm and relaxed. What I love most about the mini biodegradable, kraft pouch of salts is that they provide enough salts for 2-3 baths, so ample usage to really get a feel for the product and truly pamper yourself.
The Natural Beauty Pot: Rose Garden Wax Melts
No self-care routine would be complete without a beautiful aroma filling the room and The Natural Beauty Pot’s Rose Garden Wax Melts are absolute perfection.
These tiny stars not only look the part, but they produce the most beautiful aroma that provides a delicate rose scent that slowly builds within the room and lightly lingers for quite a while after use. If you are a wax melt fan then these will be a great addition to your collection as they truly provide a beautiful experience for any time of the day.
The Natural Beauty Pot: Rose Lip Butter
Who else is a lip balm hoarder? As someone who has a stash in every pocket, drawer and handbag, seeing a new one to try is always an exciting prospect! The Natural Beauty Pot’s Rose Lip Butter comes in a recyclable and reusable aluminium tin, not only making is easy and effective to use but also helping the environment with plastic-free packaging.
The lip balm itself contains some beautifully nourishing ingredients including:
- Shea Butter,
- Cocoa Butter,
- Mango Butter,
- Apricot Kernal Oil,
- Vitamin E,
- Rose Damask Essential Oil.
The carefully selected ingredients not only keep lips soft but also create a very firm, dense butter that once softened, melts onto the skin leaving lips supple and protected, with a light sheen that has a delicately sweet, rose aroma. I particularly enjoy the firmer texture, as I can have it in my pocket or in a warm room without it melting and can see this being my go-to lip butter during the warmer seasons.
The Natural Beauty Pot: Cranberry Facial Grains
When it comes to great all-rounders, The Natural Beauty Pot’s Cranberry Facial Grains is one of my new found favourites, not only tackling a variety of skin concerns but also multiuse in its applications.
The facial grains contain a blend of ingredients designed to detoxify, exfoliate, reduce inflammation, nourish dry skin and boost collagen production:
- Coconut Milk Powder,
- Rhassoul Clay,
- Vegetable Starch,
- Rosehip Powder,
- Elderberry Powder,
- Cranberry Powder.
The powdered formulation easily mixes with a little water to provide a paste-like consistency that sits well on the skin and smells fresh and ever-so-slightly fruity. If masking isn’t for you then the facial grains also make the perfect exfoliator which is gentle yet incredibly effective. Again, mix with a little water and apply in circular motions and wipe away.
Both applications really made a noticeable difference to my skin, as it certainly left it feeling softer and smoother after use without causing and redness or irritation on the skin. I also loved the way that it didn’t leave my skin feeling tight after use and instead left my complexion looking brighter and my dry skin flake free. The pouch had enough for 2x mask applications and an exfoliator use, so a decent amount to get a feel for the product. I would certainly try the full-sized version as I feel it would make a great addition to my skincare stash as it is quite unique in its ingredients.
Green & Black’s Raspberry and Hazelnut Dark Chocolate
No self care ritual would be complete without a little treat and Green & Black’s Raspberry and Hazelnut Dark Chocolate fits the bill perfectly. Not only does the bar co-ordinate with the Pampering Self-Care Letterbox Gift but it is an ethical (and tasty choice) too.
Green & Black’s chocolate is completely plastic free, sustainable, fairtrade and organic – plus it tastes incredible too! The raspberry and hazelnut add a sweet and tangy quality that softens the bitterness of dark chocolate, complementing it beautifully. It really does add to the pampering experience and is a great addition to this gorgeous letterbox gift.
Pukka Tea: Elderberry & Echinacea Herbal Tea
Last and by no means least is a warm yet fruity herbal tea by Pukka, which is perfect to calm and comfort.
The fruity blend is a nice edition and really does complete the pampering package that The Natural Beauty Pot offers. The tea is full of great tasting ingredients, which also have additional health benefits, and is naturally caffeine-free, vegan friendly and plastic-free.
To say that I loved The Natural Beauty Pot’s Pampering Self-Care Letterbox Gift feels like an understatement as the box really does offer a great selection of products that truly look the part. From the colour coordinating packaging to the carefully selected products themselves, the attention to detail is exceptional and would certainly make anyone’s day. The Natural Beauty Pot have shown that no matter what situation we’re in, and how far away we are from loved ones, we can show them we care with a carefully curated gift that is sure to bring joy in the most cost-effective, eco-friendly and hassle-free way possible.
