|AD – PR Product| It is always an exciting day when The Natural Beauty Box arrives but I have to say that March’s edit has been among my favourite boxes to date as it has introduced me to some truly incredible new-to-me brands...
The Mother Earth Collection featured a combination of skincare for both face and body as well as a hair care treat too. What was even more impressive was that all the products were full-sized, something which is rare to see in any beauty box, and with a total value of over £80, it made it exceptional value for money too.
As someone with a dry skin type, I usually reach for balms and oils within my cleansing routine so not only was Purity London a new-to-me brand, but the cleansing lotion was a first for me too. The Conditioning Cleanser contains some truly beautiful ingredients including oats, sweet almond oil, aloe vera, glycerin, avocado oil, euphrasia and rose water, so was gentle and not drying at all.
The texture is very light and creamy, allowing you to work it into the skin and rinses off with a splash of water (or a face cloth if removing make-up). I have to say that this did a fantastic job at not only eradicating all traces of make-up and SPF but also didn’t cause any irritation around my eyes when removing mascara. I have been reaching for this time and time again, even on no make-up days, and I cannot wait to explore the brand further after this fantastic experience.
Face masks are an essential part of any skincare ritual so i’m always excited to find one that is innovative and promises great results. GAIA Skincare’s Crystal Purifying Mask is certainly that, with a gorgeously packaged mask that looks as good on the inside as it does on the outside. The mask harnesses the energy and healing properties of rose quartz and contains a wealth of natural ingredients to detoxify the skin, leaving your complexion looking rejuvenated after use.
I loved the texture of this pre-mixed mask as it held well on the skin, not drying out too quickly like traditional clay masks and washed off easily with a warm face cloth. The antioxidant-rich formulation really improved the look and feel of my skin with each use, leaving me wanting to explore the brand’s range even further. If you’re looking for a face mask that delivers great results with each application, then GAIA Skincare’s Crystal Purifying Mask is certainly the one for you.
If you’re looking for an effective yet affordable body lotion then Urban Veda’s Reviving offering is well worth a look, ticking so many boxes when it comes to both application and great results. The Reviving Body Lotion has a luxurious floral aroma thanks to the addition of rose damask oil, jasmine and rose geranium but is perfectly balanced and not overpowering in any way. The texture is relatively rich for a body lotion, making it great for drier skin types, yet it still has the high absorbency and weightless feel on the skin that you’d expect from a lotion compared to that of a butter or balm.
What I love most is the way it leaves my skin feeling deeply nourished all day long, with a omega-rich and collagen boosting formulation that makes my skin look and feel at its best. I feel like Urban Veda create great experiences within their skincare, not only giving fantastic results on the skin but also on the senses too, with a well-rounded performance that delivers on its promises of nourished skin with each application.
This was one of the items I was most excited about in last month’s box as I am always on the lookout for great natural haircare. Thankfully, I was not disappointed when it came to amazing results, with Nereus London’s Hydrating Natural Organic Conditioner making a difference to both the look and feel of my hair. As someone with a thick and wavy hair type, conditioners are a must within my haircare routine and this is honestly among the best i’ve tried. The texture is thick and creamy, applying to the hair with ease and coating each strand with its nourishing formulation that is softening, hydrating and protective. I love that you can leave this on for longer to get a deeper conditioning treatment or can still reap the amazing benefits by rinsing straight away.
What makes Nereus London’s Hydrating Natural Organic Condition special is the aroma, which is decadent, luxurious yet not overpowering. The bergamot and Australian Buddha Wood scent is both zesty and warm, with each aroma working in harmony to create something very special indeed. This conditioner makes the mundane task of hair washing feel like a pampering, sensory experience that goes beyond a simple haircare product to leave tresses more manageable and smelling incredible. The experience is only improved by the plastic free packaging that is both stylish and great for the environment – offering a guilt-free haircare ritual for all hair types.
It is safe to say that The Natural Beauty Box has curated yet another amazing box with the Mother Earth collection, featuring a great selection of natural, vegan and cruelty free products that have certainly made a positive impact upon my beauty routine. If there is ever a reason why a beauty box subscription is a great purchase, it is my experience each and every time I have a delivery from The Natural Beauty Box. The contents never fails to impress and is testament to Emma’s hard work and determination to curate great value boxes each month.
