The total value of this month’s box is £43. There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 20% off the brands featured in the box.
What’s in the box….

This is a well known and loved product for me. I tried it years ago when it was called Purepotions Skin Salvation Intensive Moisturising Ointment. My kids had terrible eczema as babies and the Skin Salvation worked well on them. The formula is super nourishing and it has a lovely herby scent.
I love a good multi-purpose product and this one can be used on any part of the body. I’ve been using it on my dry hands and cracked heels. It absorbs really well without leaving a greasy feel. It makes my hands so soft and smooth.
I apply to my feet before bed and then pop on some socks. It has helped heel my cracked heels, my feet are now super smooth and soft.
Ayumi Neem & Tea Tree Face Mask 100ml
An intensive treatment to deep clean and refresh the skin. Kaolin helps to draw out the deep seated impurities and soak up excessive oiliness in the skin to leave it radiant, revitalised and restored. Neem, rosemary, eucalyptus and tea tree oils known for their antibacterial and balancing qualities help protect the skin from potential external damage. A blend of peppermint, orange, and lemon oils uplift, invigorate and energise the skin and senses with a burst of zesty freshness.

The consistency of this mask is quite runny and it has a strong tea tree and minty scent. I didn’t enjoy using it as it’s uncomfortably tingly. I’ve passed it on to my hubby who got on better with it.

I avoid silicone based products in my everyday hair care routine. However the only time I will use them is when I use heat styling tools.
It smells really good so I will save this for summer time when I will likely straighten my hair.

My skin craves hydration so I was eager to try out this gel. It has a light and silky consistency and smells great. You only need 1 pump as it spreads well and absorbs quickly.
It feels so refreshing on my skin and leaves it hydrated and dewy. I apply my regular moisturiser afterwards to lock in the moisture. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well this product works.
