My spring Flora & Fauna box arrived in the last fortnight and I have been loving it so I thought that I would share the eco, cruelty-free goodies it contained with you all.
I have been wearing the Kosmea Moisturising Lotion for the past week and I really like it. With summer just around the corner I am looking for face creams with a high SPF so this is perfect. The cream is beige in colour with a slightly odd smell – I can’t pin point it but it is a little off-putting BUT it doesn’t linger. Once the cream is rubbed in the smell is gone. It feels lovely on the face and is really hydrating and it hasn’t triggered my sensitive skin! This retails for AU$44.50.
Next was the Vanessa Megan Darling Perfume. I thought this was a great trial size. The smell is spicy and warm with a hint of flora scents. It is slightly ‘herbal’ smelling, but in a good way. The card says the essential oils in this perfume are known to encourage a positive outlook, dispel tension, stimulate the mind and have aphrodisiac qualities! Here is hoping 🙂
The third item in the box this season was the Eco Tools spa moisture gloves. I have never used anything like these before and at first figured that these would sit in my drawer without being touched but I forced myself to give them a go while I slept with a thick, rich moisturiser and I certainly did wake up with very soft, hydrated skin. I was surprised by the point-at-able change to my skin texture and have used them a number of times since. The hydration does wear away during the day but the process of wearing these is a nice treat for yourself.
I haven’t used these foil samples yet but I will be taking them with me on my trip to Japan next week where they will be a handy size in my bag.
The Tula Naturals Ultra Nourishing Facial Serum is the sixth item in the box and was a very welcome addition. I use rosehip oil at night time but I am nearly out so this will be my new night moisturiser soon. This is heavy to be described as a serum. It contains a combination of hemp, rosehip and macadamia oils. I have tried it once and it is very rich – perfect to wear at night! I look forward to trying this out more.
The last item in the box was this generous sample of the Adorn Cosmetics Natural Loose Illuminiser. The colour looks quite champagne in the pot but as you can see from the swatch it is quite a bright, gold on the skin. If this is too dark for highlighting my cheeks it will be stunning as an inner-corner highlight for the eyes. Again, I haven’t tried this yet but it is in my cosmetics bag to take on holidays. I love highlighter so I was really excited to see this!
By my very loose calculations this box was worth about $73 which is fantastic value for money and it offers such a great opportunity to try really good quality products without committing to the cost of paying for a full size upfront.
I thought this was an excellent box. I really do love these seasonal beauty boxes from Flora & Fauna. You can purchase a single box for $29.99 plus shipping or you can pay for four seasons for AU$119.99 and the shipping is free.
