The latest edition is themed around bringing summer to your bathroom so let’s discover what’s inside, shall we?
Heavenly Organics Organic Orange & Grapefruit Facial Oil (RRP £10.50)
This fruity and uplifting facial oil has been formulated with purely natural ingredients to nourish and moisturise your skin. Made from a blend of plant-based oils such as Sunflower and Jojoba, it’s then infused with Organic Orange and Grapefruit essential oils to provide your skin with the natural antioxidant vitamins A and E. A tiny amount is all you need to use each time (just a few drops) so this bottle will last you a long time! It’s handmade in Wales in small batches using only organic and natural ingredients and is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.
Cosy Cottage Mango & Lemon Foot Balm (RRP £7)
For something refreshingly different from the usual peppermint scented foot products out there, this gorgeous Mango & Lemon Foot Balm from Cosy Cottage instead has a deliciously fruity aroma of zesty Lemon and sweet Mango for a tropical twist. Made from Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera and Mango Butter, this is an intensely hydrating and moisturising product that will help to soften dry feet in no time at all. It’s also very concentrated so a little goes a long way.
Suma Alternative Handmade Grapefruit & Mandarin Soap (RRP £2.50)
Filled with a natural uplifting fragrance, this handmade soap from the collective Suma is infused with soothing Calendula Petals and is a real treat for tired skin. It’s 100% natural and free from palm oil. I love how it smells!
Naturally Evergreen Exfoliating Soap Bag (RRP £4)
A simple and practical addition to your bathroom is this clever Exfoliating Soap Bag from Naturally Evergreen, an eco-friendly independent company based in Bristol. To use it, you simply place any soap inside the bag and use it as you would a loofah – the natural fibres will help to gently exfoliate your skin and it’ll work with your soap’s lather to create an easy and satisfying way to wash your body – completely plastic-free! After use, just hang it up in your shower to dry.
Clipper Organic Pure Green Tea
The surprise in the box are some sachets of Clipper Organic Pure Green Tea which are not only fairtrade certified, but also plastic-free as the tea bag is made from natural plant-based materials.
