It has been a while since I’ve been able to get my hands on a monthly box from The Natural Beauty Box, as they have been so popular, they are usually out of stock before the first product reveal. When March’s Green Goddess Box, worth over £56.00, had stock remaining, I couldn’t wait to explore the products further – especially as I spotted some of my favourite brands inside.
March’s edit featured 5 products ranging from £2.49 – £25.00, with a great mix of affordable and luxury products. The Green Goddess theme suited the box perfectly, with a selection of goodies that seamlessly integrated into my routine and were a true celebration of all things green. As I wasn’t subscribed, my box did arrive a little later than normal however I wanted to share my first impressions as the contents was just so good…
Anti75: Hand Santitiser: Hand Sanitiser Gel
Hand sanitiser is one of the essentials we can’t be without at the moment and it is safe to say over this past year, i’ve certainly tried a few. Anti75’s Hand Sanitiser is formulated with 75% alcohol, strong enough to kill bacteria, germs and viruses, but not too strong to dry out your hands. The gel contains aloe vera as well as an essential oil blend of orange, spearmint and may chang to hydrate, protect and leave hands smelling clean and fresh.
What I love most about this is the scent, which is minty fresh with that lingering citrus aroma in the background. It remains on the skin for a while after use and really does detract from the alcohol scent that can be unpleasant in a lot of other hand sanitisers i’ve used. The minty freshness also gives hands a cool feel on initial use, which soon wears off and leaves hands feeling soft without any dryness, and it hasn’t caused any irritation or redness, even on areas of healing eczema. The packaging, which is made from sugarcane, is biodegradable and lightweight so you can pop it into your handbag or pockets without feeling weighed down. I love that Anti75 have opted for a gel formulation in a tube like this as it makes on-the-go application quick and incredibly easy and is a great alternative to a sanitiser spray.
Sonestia Skincare: Rosemary English Face Oil
I am a big Sonestia Skincare fan so was excited to see their Rosemary English Face Oil feature in March’s edit. I tried the brand’s facial oils previously and have to say that their Rosemary Face Oil is a truly beautiful product that delivers on its promises.
You can find my previous review here, back when the brand were called No Secrets Cosmetics, but if you’re looking for an affordable facial oil that truly celebrates the best of British then Sonestia’s Rosemary Face Oil is the one for you.

Wildtree Skincare: Nourishing Bath Salts
I am a huge bath salt fan so was incredibly excited to see Wildtree Skincare’s Nourishing Bath Salts feature in March’s Green Goddess box. As a dry-skinned girl it always excites me when I see a product that promises to nourish my skin and these bath salts certainly didn’t disappoint.
Dead sea salts are blended with sweet almond oil that really help to moisturise the skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth after use. The essential oil blend of orange and lavender blend together beautifully to calm the mind and uplift the spirits with a perfectly balanced aroma that really was a treat for the senses. These were a really nice addition to my bath time routine and are certainly a brand i’ll be exploring further in the not-so-distant future.
No Secrets Beauty: Shower Cream
If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll have noticed that No Secrets Beauty are a favourite of mine as I have never tried a product I didn’t enjoy. The shower cream is certainly no exception, with the beautiful signature ‘Four’ blend of geranium, ylang ylang, neroli, patchouli and lavender that is warming and calming for a luxurious showering experience.
I have previously reviewed the brand’s shower cream before, which you can find here, but if you’re looking for a shower experience that leaves both your skin and senses pampered, then look no further than No Secrets Beauty Shower Cream.

Green Fibres: Muslin Cloth
If you have a green beauty routine then you probably get through a fair amount of facial cloths when cleansing, so I am always happy to see one appear in a beauty box to add to my collection. I have previously tried the brand’s dual-sided cloths in the past and have always been impressed with their performance and durability – although this was the first time using their muslin cloth.
The muslin cloth boasts a generous size and is double layered so feels substantial enough during use. For me personally, I prefer a slightly more fluffy cloth when cleansing my face however, I found this particular muslin cloth was great for exfoliating my skin in the shower. I find that when my skin is feeling more sensitive than usual, using a physical exfoliator like a scrub in the shower can be a little too harsh so this did a great job and gently exfoliated without aggravating the skin in any way. It also washes well, which is great for the money, and is made from organic cotton too – what’s not too love?
March’s edit of The Natural Beauty Box was incredible value and contained some great products with a fantastic selection of price points. I loved that I was able to stock up on some existing favourites, as well as try some new products and explore different brands. I feel the variation in product types are always exceptional in each edit and I can’t wait to find out what is in the next box.
