It’s always lovely when there is a new beauty subscription box released, especially one like the Natural Wellness Box. Not only does it include natural beauty products but also natural health and wellbeing items too! Catherine, the creator of the Natural Wellness Box has curated a fantastic selection of products in her first box. The March Natural Wellness Box is the ‘Beautiful Skin‘ edition, focusing on beauty, health and wellbeing items to help achieve healthy, glowing ‘beautiful skin’.
Catherine has a degree in PR and Journalism, along with five years experience in the health sector, so she is sure to be making some waves with her new subscription box and I can’t wait to see what she will curate for future Natural Wellness boxes.
The Natural Wellness Box is also Bi-Monthly with a price point of £35 + FREE p&p, so it works out with around the same monthly cost as a lot of other beauty box subscriptions. The first box contained very high-quality products too, some of which I was already familiar with, such as Guiltless Skin, BalmBalm and Pukka.
The box comes packaged in a simple, natural box, with a pretty heart label attached, so it looks and feels very natural before you even get to see what’s inside.
The products are bedded in natural squiggles, all delicately wrapped in tissue paper, so they arrive in perfect condition. There is also a beautifully printed information card too, which gives you a brief description of each product.
So let’s take a look at the individual products that were included in the March Natural Wellness Box.
♦ Pukka Blackcurrant Beauty – 20 tea sachets (RRP £2.49) ♦
I’ve tried a few Pukka teas before, which have been really nice, and this Blackcurrant Beauty is no exception. You could smell this tea as soon as you opened the box; tangy blackcurrant & liquorice. Rich in Vitamin C, with ingredients such as Rosehip, Beetroot and Hibiscus, this tea tastes really great. Obviously, I can’t say after one cup that it made me glow inside and out but it’s a really lovely cuppa with fabulous ingredients.
♦ Guiltless Skin Nourish Organic Body Oil (RRP £30.00) ♦
One of the highlight products for me in the March Natural Wellness Box was this gorgeous dry body oil, containing a plethora of antioxidants to help protect your skin against environmental stresses. This Guiltless Skin Nourish Organic Body Oil contains pomegranate, walnut, pumpkin and camelia to name but a few.
Ingredients: carthamus tinctorius seed oil* (safflower oil) , cucurbita pepo seed oil* (pumpkin seed oil), punica granatum seed oil* (pomegranate seed oil), juglans regia seed oil* (walnut oil), camelina sativa seed oil* (camelina seed oil), prunus amygdalus dulcis oil* (sweet almond oil), tocopherol (vitamin e), helianthus annuus seed oil (sunflower oil).
It has a very natural, earthy scent which isn’t overpowering and fades quickly. My skin is pretty sensitive but this absorbed effortlessly and did not cause any irritation or reaction at all. The result was super soft skin and it was lovely not to have that greasy feeling that a lot of body oils can leave behind.
♦ KIKI HEALT+H Alkaline Infusion Beauty Elixir (RRP £14.95) ♦
KIKKI HEALT+H is a brand I hadn’t heard of before but I was really pleased to receive their Alkaline Infusion Powder as I’ve really been getting into supplements the last few months. You can simply add this powder to water, juices and even smoothies.
Ingredients: Lemon-juice powder, Inulin (34%), Potassium citrate, Calcium citrate, Magnesium citrate, Vitamin C, Bamboo powder, Acerola cherry powder
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Naturally free from gluten and wheat.
High in Vitamin C, calcium and magnesium, it will help you maintain a healthy immune system, plus encourage healthy skin growth and renewal. I actually haven’t tried this yet because I am already currently using something similar, so once I have finished that, I will then try this.
♦ SuperFoodio Sweet Clusters – Himalayan Salted Caramel (RRP £6.49) ♦
Yeah, these Superfoodio Himalayan Salted Caramel Sweet Clusters did not last very long! Extremely moreish and packed with protein; Himalayan Pink Salt, and the sweet richness of caramel, and crunchy cashew nuts. These tasty clusters are also Gluten free | Refined sugar-free | Vegan. It was really fantastic to see such an enjoyable, healthy snack included in the March Natural Wellness Box.
♦ BalmBalm Little Miracle Rosehip Serum (RRP £14.95) | Organic Essential Tea Tree Oil (RRP £6.15)| Super Light Coconut Cleanser ♦
I am quite familiar with BalmBalm 100% Organic, they have a really excellent range of products. I have used the Coconut Cleanser before which is really nice. It is indeed very light and not greasy. After cleansing your face with it, it is easily removed with a damp cloth; muslin cloth if you have one.
Ingredients – Light Coconut Cleanser
I have never used their Tea Tree Oil or their Rosehip Serum though. I am a HUGE fan of Rosehip oil in general though and I use it every day in my skincare routine. It’s really fantastic for your skin and great for rejuvenation – at my age, I’ll take all the rejuvenation I can get too!
Ingredients – Rosehip Serum
Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Seed Oil, Boswellia Neglecta Oil, Pelagonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Juniperus Communis Fruit Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, citronellol*, geraniol*, linalool*, citral*, limonene*, farnesol*
*naturally occurring in essential oils
Essential Tea Tree Oil has many great uses, such as for spots, cuts, stings, antibacterial, cleansing. Always remember to dilute essential oils, never use the oils neat on your skin unless advised by an Aromatherapist. They are extremely concentrated. Use a carrier oil with a ratio of 5 drops of essential oil to 10ml of carrier oil.
♦ My Overall Thoughts on the March Natural Wellness Box ‘Beautiful Skin’ Edition ♦
I was really impressed with the March Natural Wellness Box, especially as this is the first box. Catherine did a superb job.
It was beautifully presented and had a really high-quality curation of products. It was also great to have not only natural beauty products but also natural wellbeing and health products like the Alkaline Infusion Powder, Pukka Blackcurrant Beauty Tea and the Sweet Clusters.
The information card was really well done and I really liked the design. It gives you the RRP of each product and a little about them too.
With so many beauty subscription boxes available, it is hard to stand out but this does feel like a more luxe box and I like that it is bi-monthly too.
