Here is my latest 'latest in beauty' box, it follows the same concept as glossybox and all the other beauty boxes out there but with this one you know what you are getting. You can often choose two extra samples yourself and it is £6.95 including P&P. You become a member for free and it doesn't follow a subscription like glossybox but is a one off payment.You simply put the box in your cart/shopping basket and pay for it at the checkout.
I received the refresh&recover box ready for the new year ahead. They say 'kick start your healthy regime for 2012 with the Refresh & Recover Box, packed with products designed to help you look and feel beautiful from the inside, out'
Inside my box was; figs and rouge sweet geranium balm, lavera hand cream, monu recovery balm, monu face wash, monu moisturiser, monu face mask, cosmetofruit dinkable elixir, teapigs tummy tonice tea bag, actimint probiotic mints and i chose burt's bees honey and milk body moisturiser and clarins mutli-active day cream.
the 'figs and rouge sweet geranium balm' -8ml tin is lovely, the tin is so pretty and girly. It has art nouveau decoration on the lid and it can be used on the lips, face or body and who doesn't love a multi purpose product! It is a brand i have heard only good things about in the past, it is 100% organic and is made from natural botanical ingredients such as - sunflower oil, shea butter, beeswax, rosehip oil, calendula extract, rose geranium essential oil and ylang ylang essential oil. You can purchase the 8ml tin for £3.49 from lovelula.com.
I am always pleased to see hand creams in beauty boxes as they are something i always love to have floating around in the bottom of my handbag but are never something i go out to buy, i was pleased to see it was a 'Lavera' hand cream -20ml tube as i have used their fake tan and sun screen before but i was actually dissapointed with this product, the smell was very over powering and it took a while to settle into my skin. You can purchase these from feel unique for £6.95 -75ml tube.
I was so very excited to recieve more 'monu' products, i can not rate them enough see my post here. i love them and think that they are fantastic. i was expecting to recieve the 'monu' recovery balm -8ml tube which is my all time holy grail moisturising product but instead i was sent four miniature products, at first i was dissapointed but with the chance to try three other 'monu' products i was then delighted!
Fruit enhancing really good for you drinks are products that i am always scepticale of, they confuse me and i feel as though i should be taking vitamins in tablet form, drinking lots of water and eating my five a day etc to keep healthy but this 'cosmetofruit drinkable elixir' says 'it is a drinkable elixir dietary supplement for total beauty and health from within in just one delicious step, it is a powerful concentrate that works to detoxify and revitalise the skin' but i must say it tastes very metalic and is slightly unbearable for my liking! You can purchase the whole range from MichaelJohn.co.uk for £35.00 -120ml bottle.
The teapigs tummy tonic tea are really cute and come in a sweet brown paper recycled sachet and the mints come in small plastic packaging. Both are pleasant samples and is what i would expect to find in a refresh and recover box to fix the inside and out! You can purchase the whole range of tea from Teapigs.co.uk
I loved the 'latest in beauty box' it is so nice that at the checkout you can choose two samples of your choice out of 10. I chose 'Burt's Bee's' Honey & Milk body moisturiser and 'Clarins' moisturiser two fantastic products and again two of my Holy Grail always go to items.
