Winter is here, my sweet green petites! And so am I, your resident Good Green Box beauty blogger to bring you our superb box for July!
We start the month’s proceedings with two bangers from Natura Siberica. Firstly, their Eye Cream Gel with Siberian Ginseng is a cooling natural face-lift for your peepers, smoothing and toning the delicate skin around your eyes, while getting rid of dark circles. The eyes definitely have it! Speaking of youthful and pretty (oh stop it), their Rhodiola Rosea Day Cream is an absolute daily treat for your skin – the scent alone made me ten years younger 😉. I loved that this natural moisteriser is also a sunscreen, and it’s so light and absorbent that it was the first product in my GGB that I used up hungrily! In your GGB you’ll also find the beautiful toner from Akhal, aka their Organic Rose Hydrolat aka nectar of the gods sent directly from heaven to your skin! I dabbed a little of this rosy-posy to my freshly cleansed face before bedtime, and the florid bouquet of the rose water sent me directly to sleep.
There are two versatile and naturally sourced oils featured in the winter Good Green Box: 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil from Atlas Argan Australia, and Siberian Cedar Nut Oil. Argan Oil is packed full of Vitamin B and fatty oils that are great for growth, development, and shine of your hair, skin and nails, while also containing antioxidant properties. Siberian Cedar Nut Oil can be used as a soap, face oil, cleanser, moisterizer, makeup remover, or digestive aid – that’s right, this oil has more variety than Meryl Streep’s acting roles.
Yes, we know you’re cleansed and moisturized, but what of the make-up for this haul!? I hear you, I hear you, and your prayers have been answered with the Halo Illuminator from Vapour Organic Beauty, a stick of luminous happiness that will brighten your cheekbones, your collarbones, and your day. I love makeup that is 100% natural and organic, and uses natural essence such as Frankincense, Tulsi and Lotus to enhance it.
As my dating advisor once told me, always finish with a bang! And the final features for July are Coconut Wipes by CocoBetty, who have produced an adorably pink single-packaged makeup remover wipe for the gal on the go! This single soft serve is doused in 100% pure coconut oil, and will simultaneously remove your glitter eyeshadow, hydrate your skin, and return your mother’s phone calls! But seriously, this wipe felt like heaven and didn’t judge me for using teal eyeliner. Anyone who has used coconut oil in anything can attest that the smell is delish!
Enjoy your winter warmers in your July Good Green Box, I can’t wait to see your face when you unpack this month’s goodies! And of course, no, that’s not me in your kitchen window (nice jumper by the way). Ta ta!
