BeautEco Box is the brand new beauty sampling subscription service on the block. Perhaps you’ve had your fill of sample boxes by now, but this one is something a little bit different to the rest.
BeautEco only include organic and/or natural products in their boxes, all from top quality brands. Some you may be familiar with, some you may not. But regardless of the name, these products will satisfy the urge to try new things whilst still being a little bit ‘green’.
As well as the eco friendly arc, BeautEco give you the choice of three boxes each month, so you can handpick the selection of samples you’d like to try. Neat idea, right? There will be no more disappointment when it arrives on your doormat, nor comparisons with others’ having better boxes than yours – which let’s face it, we are all guilty of doing!
I chose the box that had, in my opinion, the best all rounder products, ranging from low end to *cough* exceedingly high end.Let’s have a closer look at the contents, then!
Anatomicals Don’t Just Clean It Woman, Scrub It! (£3.49 for 200ml)
I’ve received a sample of this in a GlossyBox months prior, and I liked it very much. This is a full size product, 250ml, which is very generous indeed. The scent is unmistakeably grapefruit – perfect for Spring!
Anatomicals Help The Paw Hand Cream (£3)
Once again a full size product, once again from Anatomicals! However you can never have too much of a good thing, right? Lovely fresh scent, very moisturising, great stuff!
Mitchell & Peach Body Cream (£36 for 180ml)
I had high hopes for this, I think the inclusion of the word Peach in the brand’s title misled me a little! It’s a typical lavender, English Country Garden scent, not my sort of thing, sadly.
Melvita Rose Milky Cleansing Oil (£27 for 40ml)
I’ve tried a few products from Melvita in the past and enjoyed them immensely. This rose cleansing oil for both eyes and face looks lovely, however it doesn’t have any discerning smell to it, which is a shame. Looking forward to trying it out!
Dr.Bragi Age Management Moisturiser (£120 for 60ml *gulp*)
Saving the best for last, this is the seemingly unassuming facial moisturiser included in one version of the BeautEco box. As soon as I squeezed it out of the tube, I was intrigued. It’s a clear gel formula, no scent whatsoever, and comprised of marine enzymes to combat the signs of ageing and eradicate dryness. I have been using this every night since the box arrived, and I am completely in love! It’s not until I looked at the little info card and saw the price tag that my heart sank quite a lot. £120 for 60ml is rather astronomical, but boy, is it worth it! Take my advice and get your hands on a sample of this – it’s incredible!
(Keep your eyes peeled for reviews coming soon of other Dr.Bragi products!!)
All in all, I am impressed with BeautEco and the new route they are taking in their approach to beauty box services. If you’re interested, each box is £10 per month plus P+P and it launches the end of this week, here: http://www.beautecobox.co.uk
