1. Balance Me Revitalising Hand & Body Wash. 100ml. RRP £12.50 BUY HERE
This natural cleansing wash is packed with zesty and fresh ingredients such as mandarin, grapefruit, bergamot, sweet orange and mint. It’s a perfect pick me up for the day when your hands are in need of some TLC. I suffer with dry and chapped hands from work and using this wash has soothed and nourished my skin. It absorbs easily into the skin so there’s no need to worry about having that tacky-feel.
2. Korres Aloe & Soapwort Shampoo. Travel size 50ml. RRP £9 BUY HERE
Korres pride themselves in using organic and environmentally-friendly ingredients. All their essential fruit oils and herbal infusions are locally sourced and kept free from nasty synthetics. As for this Aloe & Soapwort shampoo, it has a lovely fresh and light scent, perfect for those early mornings. I’m yet to try it, but I’ve heard the results are impressive; leaving hair fresh and light, glossy (in the right way) and airy. This travel sized shampoo, packed with over 80% natural ingredients, is perfect to pack for weekends away.
3. FORZA Multivitamin for Dieters. Full size. 30-day course. RRP £7.49 BUY HERE
One of this months full size products is Forza Diet Multivitamin, a 30 day supply of multivitamins designed for women who are maintaining a low calorie diet. Each pill contains 13 different vitamins and minerals such as Zinc, Vitamin K, C, B, D and Vitamin B12. This pill is not in any way a meal or food replacement, but simply a boost of vitamins and minerals that your body needs on a daily basis. The box also contains a handy little notebook containing healthy recipes and space for a food journal – nifty!
4. CB12 Safe Breath Rinse Mild. 50ml RRP £3.50 BUY HERE
I was a little surprised to see this mouth wash in a beauty box, but I see how it can fit in with the healthy-lifeestyle bits and pieces in the box. CB12 is made up of zinc acetate and chlorhexidine, which helps to neutralise the substances in your mouth that cause unpleasant breath. The mouth wash binds with the lining of the mouth, teeth and tongue, ensuring up to 12 hours protection. The CB12 Mild option is designed for those who are more sensitive to strong flavours, so this milder fresh menthol flavour is perfect for you. I’m yet to try this rinse as I always use mints at work, but this might be a handy alternative to pop in your bag to try out.
5. TIGI Bed Head Manipulator. Sample size 30g RRP £13.50 BUY HERE
I love adding texture to my hair to style it, so I was pleased to see a sample size in this months beauty box. TIGI Bed Head Manipulator is a sticky-waxy substance made up of ozokerite – to create texture – petrolatum – to condition & moisturise the hair – and PEG – to thicken the hair and give a silky feel. The gel can be worked into clean, wet or dry hair, and can be either blow dryed or left to dry naturally. A little certainly goes a long way and when I use it, I take a tiny scoop and rub it in between my fingers, then work it roughly into my hair to give it volume. It’s perfect for fly away hairs and leaves a matte finish. Its effects are more noticeable on shorter hair styles, but still gives flattering volume to other lengths.
6. INIKA Certified Organic Eyeliner in Black Caviar. Full Size RRP £12.83 BUY HERE
INIKA is a luxury natural cosmetics brand, with all their products certified vegan and cruelty free. The INIKA certified organic eyeliner is made from natural plant ingredients and mineral colour blends. The texture is soft and creamy and I was able to wear it all day without smudging. I’m usually a gel-eyeliner kinda gal but this pencil really impressed me! There’s also a convenient built-in pencil sharpener in the lid which is super handy. This is the second full sized product in the April Beauty Box and I’m looking forward to exploring INIKA more, I’ve found some fab eyeshadow kits with amazing pigmentation.
