July Good Green Box!*




Oh hi! I was so excited to receive the July Good Green Box* recently, tear it open and see what was inside! This one was full to the brim and bursting with natural goodies, with some very interesting products thrown into the mix. The contents are worth over $78, which is such great value! This includes two generous full sized products plus five other samples. Let's take a look!


Contents
Akhal Organic Rose Hydrolat (100 ml)
Siberian Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil Extract (100 g)
Atlas Argan 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil (5 ml)
Natura Siberica Siberian Ginseng Eye Cream-Gel (6 ml sachet)
Natura Siberica Rhodiola Rosea Day Cream (6 ml sachet)
Vapour Organic Beauty Halo Illuminator (sample pot)
Cocobetty Coconut Wipes (1 wipe)



As always there's a handy What's In The Box? card that details the box inclusions on one side and the product's key ingredients on the other. First up is a generous 100ml bottle of Akhal Organic Rose Hydrolat. This product is a dry skin quencher and hydrator, which is perfect for Winter! The distillate is extracted from rose blooms picked by the indigenous women of Morocco and the product is 100% natural, organic and vegan. This Hydrolat is water-like and absorbs quickly, leaving my skin soft and toned. I absolutely love the gentle rosy floral scent and I'm really enjoying using this!



Honestly I'm slightly confused regarding the Siberian Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil Extract, as both my information card and the website list the product as Siberian Cedar Nut Oil with Cedar Soft Resin Extract. Apparently it's a natural antiseptic and an efficient immune modulator that restores the body's energy and you're supposed to inhale it. However the Berry Oil packaging implies ingesting it and basically I'm so glad there's a thick information guide in the box, because I'll be needing to do my research! I'm saving the Natura Siberica eye and day cream sample sachets for a later date because I'm concentrating on using my Project Pan skincare at the moment, but I'm still so excited to see Natura Siberica products in this box, as it's a brand I love!

The Atlas Argan 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil is a great multitasking product, as it can be used as a treatment to nourish and repair the hair, skin and nails due to the high fatty acid and Vitamin E content. It's ethically sourced from a women's co-operative in the foothills of Morocco's Atlas Mountains. I've been using it to soften my cuticles and can't wait to give it a go in my hair!



The Vapour Organic Beauty Halo Illuminator was a little difficult to use due to the nature of the sample, which appeared to be a thinly sliced cross section of the full stick version. I had to pick it up and lay it across my fingertip then slide that across my cheekbones to apply the product. However the formula was super creamy and easy to blend out, leaving me with a subtle sheen of moonlight-hued highlight. I'd definitely be interested to try the full version of this!

My 100% natural and cruelty-free Cocobetty Coconut Wipe smelled ah-mazing, kind of like a tropical holiday or a chocolate Bounty bar. So coconutty! The wipe felt deceptively dry until rubbed on the face, at which time the oils were released. This left my face very oily and I had to wipe the excess off with a tissue. I went in with some Micellar Water afterwards as a test and yes, the wipe had removed 95% of my makeup. This is a great option if you're after a less boring, unconventional and fun makeup wipe.

An information booklet is always helpful there Di - ingesting and inhaling are two completely different things haha! xx Let's hope you find the right one! x I've been sent a few products from Vapour Beauty for a post (a while ago, so I better get it up, I'm SO behind on my blogging schedule) and I have one of the stick highlighters and it's so stunning!

  8. As usual (and as a sign of my ignorance) I've not heard of most of these products and brands. I love the idea of a surprise box arriving though.... the anticipation as you open it and unsure what's inside. #teamlovinlife
