*Nourish Beauty Box – February 2017
Monthly Subscription is £23.00 including free world-wide delivery
No. of Products – 4
Value – £96.50
It’s been a while since I’ve featured a Nourish Beauty Box review so it’s great to welcome them back to the blog and what a fab curation they’ve put together for us for their February edition plus they’ve also incorporated some positive new changes to their subscription – for example they’ve scrapped the canvas bag for a branded box instead and most excitingly you can now expect to see four products as opposed to the three – a great start to the new year I’d say. This month’s well-rounded line up features an interesting selection none of which I’ve actually tried before so that was a lovely bonus and with four full sized products on board totalling up to an incredible £96.50 as well as the exceIlent quality of the products I think it’s going to be a tough edit to beat!
Filled with beautifully crafted, organic, cruelty-free products, the Nourish Beauty Box will offer 4 full-sized beauty products ranging from skincare/bodycare to makeup products, all of which can be purchased within their online shop if you happen to fall in love with something. The price of the box is $34.95 (£23.00)/month (FREE Worldwide delivery) and subscribers get at least $70 (around £46.00+) retail value in every box.
The February edition features products from Juice Beauty, Seraphine Botanicals, Peony Cosmetics and a nail varnish from Nourish Beauty’s very own collection.
Up first is a very generous addition from Juice Beauty in the form of their Green Apple Peel Nightly Brightening Peel Pads (Full Size RRP £48.00). Juice Beauty isn’t a brand I’ve come across before but this California team are passionate about healthy lifestyles and their organic products are backed by powerful and innovative science – I love it when beauty and science join forces! Helping to brighten, smooth and tone while reducing the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, these luxurious, eco-friendly bamboo pads are saturated with antioxidant-rich organic fruit acids to brighten while extracts of algae, Vitamin B3 and hyaluronic acid reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark spots and discoloration. I always get a little nervous with peels and exfoliants having spot prone skin so I hope this isn’t too harsh for my face although it is advised that if you have very sensitive skin then the gentler version is more suitable!
Sticking to skin care up next we have the Seraphine Botanticals Lip Polish in Orange and Cream (full size RRP £14.49) and the packaging alone is just so beautiful! This gentle lip exfoliant primes lips for any infusion of colour with a golden sugar-based formula gently works to buff dead skin cells away while rich avocado & apricot oils work to repair chapped lips. It’s also infused with mango butter to help provide lasting moisture. Being a fan of matte lipsticks this scrub is definitely a handy essential for me and smells so refreshing – and tastes rather nice too oops!
Sometimes you really do find hidden gems inside subscription boces and this was certainly the case when I discovered the Peony Cosmetics A Fig Deal palette (RRP £36.10) which features a gorgeous selection of warm neutrals, deep smokey shades and three pretty highlighters giving a whole lot of flexibility out of just one (extremely portable) palette. In terms of the actual quality of the formulas of the shadows I was pretty happy with this palette, the colour payoff is pretty amazing and I love that they add shimmer without looking overly glittery or metallic. The variety of shades give endless options for a sultry smokey eye to a “no-makeup” look and is going be so handy for traveling due to it’s compact design. The only downside is it’s a little pricey for such a small palette.
Lastly is the Nourish Beauty’s very own Nail Varnish in the shade ‘Gratitude’ (full size £10.03), a very pretty mint hue that’s perfect for spring!
There was so much to love about this month’s Nourish Box from the new changes they incorporated to all the cruelty-free discoveries on board and I must say their well-rounded February line up has definitely made its way to the top the list when it comes to my favourite editions from them. I can’t say I was disappointed with any of the contents and so far my firm favourites are the palette and the spring inspired nail varnish. I’m also glad that I received the Brightening Peel Pads from Juice Beauty as I’ve not tried anything from this brand before so fingers crossed it’s not too harsh for my skin. Value-wise this month’s box is worth an incredible £96.50 so it’s well worth the £23.00 subscription cost.
If you love organic, natural and cruelty-free products or want to detoxify your beauty regime with a more friendly alternative the Nourish Beauty Box is the perfect way to enhance your beauty the natural way.
