If you’re looking to subscribe to a monthly beauty box, it can be a little overwhelming, with so many to choose from…
The Natural Beauty Box Features the best of British, award-winning natural skincare brands; along with up and coming, eco-luxe artisans. Included each month are five or six eco-friendly, 100% cruelty-free products (full, and travel sized), with carefully coordinated packaging to match the month’s theme.
Box value will always be over £50
Everything you’ll find in The Natural Beauty Box is vegan-friendly and free from nasty chemicals, known skin irritants such as parabens, SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate), synthetic fragrances, phthalates and mineral oil. Nothing but clean, green skin loving goodness.

Being honest, even as a die-hard product junkie, subscribing to a monthly beauty box isn’t something I do. However, I’ve previously subscribed to a well-known box and found that one or two products were going by the wayside each month and it wasn’t really working for me.
Personally, I wouldn’t choose cruelty brands or products with harsh ingredients so naturally, my box of choice would be a green, ethical box such as this. You can be sure that all the products will be earth-friendly and naturally gorgeous. Green beauty is something I became interested in back along as I started leaning towards a more ethical approach to beauty and I’ve not looked back.
Subscribing to a Monthly Beauty Box is a great way to discover brands which we may not have otherwise stumbled upon.
Included in November’s “Winter Skin Saviours” box are brands which are all new to me, so let’s see what we have!
Guiltless Skin Illume Moisture Serum £26
Lightweight and fragrance-free, Illume Moisture Serum protects and strengthens the skinʼs barrier, prevents moisture loss and reduces the appearance of fine lines. The result is improved luminosity and skin texture.
Guiltless Skin is developed and manufactured in the UK and focusses on high-performance, biodegradable ingredients which support and benefit the skin’s natural processes.
Apply Illume Moisture Serum to clean, dry skin and follow with your usual moisturiser and/or face oil.
A gorgeous, colourless serum which comes boxed and feels luxe. It’s perfect for layering to give your skin an extra boost of hydration. I found Illume serum has good spreadability and absorbs well, leaving my skin smooth and soft.
ILOVESKIN Face Oil £19.20
Felicity McDonald Mini Bath Salts £8
Uplift the mind with this therapeutic bath soak and enjoy full body relaxation with soothing and sensual rose otto. Other ingredients include purifying juniper berry, anti-inflammatory cornflower, calming lavender and detoxifying Himalayan salts. if you’re a gym bunny, indulge in a relaxing soak and ease tired muscles after your workout. Sprinkle a handful into your bath to cleanse the mind and restore calm.
Always vegan, and made from organic ingredients wherever possible.
Cruelty-free and formulated without parabens, phthalates and artificial additives or preservatives. These Mini Bath Salts are so attractive with a sprinkling of rose petals, cornflower, lavender and juniper berry adorning the top of the salts making a lovely touch and something a little different.
Okko Skincare Mini Balm Duo £3 Each
OKKO Skincare says its ambition is to make people feel comfortable in their skin. No nasty stuff! Our oils are authentic, real, and our everyday ingredients are reassuringly simple.
Ingredients include organic rosehip and jojoba oils, aloe butter, organic cocoa butter, organic chia seed oil, and organic calendula oil, to name but a few.
Solid, deeply moisturising sticks but without the spills. Meeting your busy, everyday needs; you can throw it in your bag and use it as needed.
‘OKKO say “We love our planet, and we care about our future and our children’s futures”.
Utilising the latest innovation in eco-packaging technology, OKKO has developed a product that is 100% natural and 100% environmentally friendly.
When I first saw the Body Balms, I immediately thought they were lip products but these are unusual and a little different from the average. I’ve kept the Body Balm in my handbag, it’s so handy for using around my cuticles and any other little areas which need a bit of TLC on the go. These really are such a neat idea, I imagine the foot balm would be perfect for keeping with you during sandal season for a quick application to the moisturise dry heels!
Niskama skincare Gentle, Smoothing Face Polish £7
Relax and enjoy the calming chamomile and peppermint oil aroma. Massage a little of the Niskama Scrub into damp skin with gentle, circular movements for around one minute. If you prefer a milkier consistency, add a little more water and continue massaging. Remove with a warm muslin or washcloth.
More often than not, a physical exfoliator is too harsh for my skin and I tend to favour an enzyme peel instead. However, this is a dense scrub with a fine texture and feels gentle on the skin. It has a lovely peppermint scent and is locally made, just over an hour from where I live which is lovely!
“Total value for this box is £56 all for £24.95 and postage is free!
