I love receiving little boxes full of fun new make-up and beauty options, and knowing that they are eco-friendly makes it even better.
I loved three of the five items I received: the Chain Bridge Honey Farm Heather Honey Lip Balm, the Green People Age Defy+ Skin Buff Exfoliator & the Bohemian Chic Mineral Eyeshadow.
The Chain Bridge Honey Farm Heather Honey Lip Balm has now made its place on my desk at work. I’ve almost used up all of the Green People Age Defy + Skin Buff Exfoliator and my face feels smooth and soft as a result. The Bohemian Chic Mineral Eyeshadow is a subtle shade of green, which is perfect for me as I have green eyes and I’m not a fan bright eyeshadows.
The Chain Bridge Honey Farm Heather Honey Soap was just ok. It smells very nice and does the job it’s supposed to do, but it doesn’t lather as much as I’d like. The Bloom Remedies Daily Revive Moisturiser was my least favorite. I tried it once, but it left my face feeling very oily, so I won’t be using it again.
With a beauty box of items that you didn’t select yourself, there is bound to be one or two that aren’t quite right. Overall the beauty items in Little Green Beauty Box from Souk Souk did not disappoint and the mini-magazine that came with it had some great articles on organic and eco-friendly beauty products. For £12 a month it seems a pretty good deal to boot. If you want to build up your stock of green beauty products, they even have some bespoke and limited editions boxes filled with even more products.
As of May 2015, SoukSouk has closed its doors and is out of business. We are keeping this post up as a record only.
They offer a subscription-based monthly Little Green Beauty Box, each containing a selection of organic, natural, chemical-free and cruelty-free beauty products, plus a copy of our monthly Little Green Magazine. There are four different subscription packages, from Pay Monthly to a 12 month upfront subscription.
They also offer Limited Edition Beauty boxes (one-off boxes that won’t be around for long!) and a Bespoke Beauty Box service – great if you have particular preferences or as a gift for someone.
