Amarya – July Beauty Box
Here’s what I received today in the July Amarya Beauty Box, a monthly subscription with a selection of samples, trial sizes or full size products from leading natural and organic beauty and skincare brands.
First, I love the shade of the Zoya nail polish! Just yesterday I finally opened the Zoya baby blue nail polish I received in the Amarya March Beauty Box, and I’m very happy with it. The polish is quick and easy to apply on my toes while navigating around my baby bump and as its free of harsh chemicals, it doesn’t have an overwhelming odor.
The NEOM organic hand cream is a welcome addition to my handbag – I love the scent! I look forward to trying the Dr. Hauschka toned day cream, as I’ve said before, I’m always on the lookout for a good tinted moisturiser.
Zoya offers over 300 shades of nail polish that are free from harsh chemicals typically found in conventional products, such as toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP (phthalates) and camphor.
Zoya Limited Edition Colour Cuties, Shelby - £5.50 for 7.5ml (as shown)
This summer, Zoya has a limited edition Cuties collection, with a mix of irresistible summer shades selected by the Zoya Colour Experts. Each 7.5ml Zoya is perfectly packaged in an adorable limited edition, matching polkadot box. The shade I received, Shelby, is a soft but colorful cherry blossom pink with an opaque cream finish and enough tint to keep it from looking pastel or washed out.
John Masters Organics are committed to using the finest, most therapeutic organic ingredients on the planet. John Masters Organics grew out of a desire to create a luxury beauty line that treats the earth with respect. The result is the culmination of the hard work performed by people all over the world, with a dedication to growing and harvesting organic and wild-crafted ingredients.
John Masters Linden Blossom Face Creme Cleanser – £22.00 for 118ml
The perfect preparation for even the most sensitive skin, this luxury non-foaming cleansing milk for dry / mature skin is both gentle and softening. The softening properties of rose and linden blossom essential oils are mixed with a light facial creme to gently clean away dirt and make-up while ginseng revitalises, ylang ylang nourishes and radish root extract defends against environmental pollutants.
A firm favourite with top beauty editors and celebrities, NEOM have created a powerful, organic range of luxury bath, body & home fragrance products that all work as treatments to make you feel more relaxed, more energized or even just a whole lot happier – depending on the treatment you select for your mood – from cult beauty-editor-favourite candles to vitamin packed anti ageing body oils, deeply pampering bath oils in precious glass bottles to organic hand washes and lotions for a touch of every day organic luxury.
NEOM Inspiration Hand Cream - £12.50 for 50ml (as shown)
A fine treat for velvety soft skin, this luxurious organic hand cream is packed with anti-oxidising extracts, including acai extract, great for anti-ageing, and nourishing argan oil, known to aid collagen production and tighten the skin. Scents of violent and chamomile infuse in this super-concentrated yet non-greasy formula that also works well as a nail and cuticle cream.
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care create a healthy, radiant complexion by harnessing the power of wholly natural plant ingredients, where possible using biodynamic agriculture techniques. Plants are harvested and processed at their greatest potency, to ensure maximum efficacy of product formulations and positive results that show in your skin. Dr. Hauschka products contain no synthetic fragrances, colours or preservatives, are certified natural by the BDIH and are never tested on animals.
Dr. Hauschka Toned Day Cream – £27.45 for 30ml
This tinted moisturiser suits all skin tones and gives a light yet radiant, warm summery glow, while offering extra protection for normal, sensitive and dry skin conditions. The warm beige colour of the cream becomes transparent when applied to the skin, balancing irregularities and promoting a smooth, finished look to the skin. A gentle moisturizer, it also soothes sensitive, reddened skin and benefits mature skin, giving a vital, firm appearance. Quince seed and anthyllis extract protect and nourish, while rose extract smoothes.
