Bellabox 'Raw Beauty' Box - March 2017
I love Bellabox.
The concept of getting box-sized beauty goodies delivered to your door each month is genius!
I have also been making an effort to use more natural beauty products without any nasties lately so I was super excited to receive their March box themed 'Raw Beauty' which was filled with natural makeup and skincare goodies!
In this blog post I am going to share what was in this must-have box, what I am loving and what I can't wait to try!
PACKage Everyday Bouncy Sheet Mask
The K-Beauty trend is definitely on the rise and I am a huge fan of sheet masks so I was excited to receive one in this months Bellabox! To be honest this was the first thing that caught my eye probably because of its adorable packaging! The front of the sachet has a brown bear sitting under a tree smelling a flower while a bee hive hangs off the branch and bees buzz around it - so cute right!? This particular mask is the Bouncy Sheet Mask which deeply hydrates for bouncy, glowing skin and contains honey extract, propolis extract and hyaluronic acid - my fave! Like most sheet masks it is easy to apply and has cut out holes for the eyes, nose and mouth. Place on the face, position in place, leave on for 10-20 minutes and relax! As soon as the mask hit my skin it was really nourishing and the mask is soft and soothing. I left it on for the directed amount of time and when I took it off I massaged the excess serum into my face and neck. My skin instantly felt softer, more supple and hydrated. I will definitely be picking up more of this mask!
Woohoo Natural 'Urban' All Deodorant Paste
I have never tried a deodorant paste before so I was keen to see what it was like. The sample size I received is the travel version of 'Urban' and comes in a lip balm sized pot. It is a solid paste until you wipe your finger through it and the heat from your body makes it softer and has a lovely citrusy fresh smell. It is very easy to apply, you simply get a bit on your finger and rub it under your arm until it has melted into your skin. This is perfect for anyone with sensitive skin or for after shaving and this travel size version is perfect to throw in your bag!
Eye of Horus Bio Lash Lift Mascara
I have never tried the Eye of Horus range so I was really curious about this 100% vegan, 98% organic formula which contains Marine Algae and plant derived Collagen.
The specialty double-sided wand is designed to load, comb, lengthen your lashes, add volume and promote growth. The small bristles on one edge of the wand load the product onto the lashes while the large bristles on the other side comb it through to create ultimate length and volume. I am yet to try this one yet but I am really excited to see how it works - stay tuned on my insta-stories (@marisarobinson.mua) for a live demo!
Bronze by La Mav Gradual Tanning Moisturiser
As the summer sun starts to fade I do not want to lose my sun-kissed tan so I am really looking forward to trying this gradual tanning moisturiser. The certified organic La Mav formula is a nourishing blend of Argan Oil, Macadamia Oil, Camellia Oil, Cranberry Extract and Green Tea Extract and hydrates the skin while gradually building up a golden glow! I received the 'light' formula so I am going to start applying this on the daily to maintain my streak-free tan.
Amie 'Morning Clear' Purifying Facial Wash
I have seen a lot of Amie products popping up on Instagram lately so I was looking forward to putting their purifying facial wash to the test. You simply massage a small amount onto a wet face until it builds into a nice lather, rinse off and pat dry with a towel. The formula has more of a moisturising cream texture unlike other facial washes I have used before and it was really gentle on the skin. I am really enjoying this so far and will continue to use it and report back with results soon!
The Australian Natural Soap Company 'Activated Charcoal' Soap
I have been loving anything and everything lately that contains activated charcoal. Not only is it a natural cleanser and detox but is also known for its purifying properties. At first glance this block of Activated Charcoal soap could pass for a delicious brownie but definitely don't mistake it for that! It is however ideal for cleansing your face and drawing dirt and toxins out of your pores. I am yet to use this but I am so happy it was in the box as it is something I definitely would have bought for myself!
BONUS Palmer's Shea Formula Raw Shea Body Lotion
Another thing I love about Bellabox is that you always get a bonus product to try and in the Raw Beauty Box it was a sachet of the Palmer's Shea Formula Raw Shea Body Lotion. I recently ran out so this couldn't have come at a better time especially since my skin has been drier and more sensitive than usual. The shea butter formula contains Vitamin E so it is super nourishing, isn't sticky and absorbs beautifully into the skin. I like to apply it over my body after I have showered as it has a beautiful scent and leaves my skin feeling fabulous!
