Being our birthday month here at bb, we thought we'd take a little trip down memory lane and tell you our favourite products from all of our boxes. Yep - you heard us! We'll spill which products got our hearts beating the fastest, because believe it or not, we like to discover the amazing brands and products right alongside you! Read on to see if your favourites were also ours!
Out with the old, in with the new naturals
Here at bb we rang in the new year with a heap of natural products to bring out the best in all of our members, but of course, the ones we loved the best were those that put a natural spin on a classic...
Herban Essentials Essential Oil Towelettes
These towelettes beat a 'wet-one' anyday of the week! Not only do they come individually wrapped in small packets, so you dont have to lug 30 wipes around with you in your handbag, they are enriched with essential oils, making them naturally scented and antibacterial. Available in a range of flavours/scents, these are ace for throwing in your handbag, car consol, gym bag... the list goes on!
Soleo Organics All Natural Sunscreen
One of the most important aspects of a beauty routine is incorporating an SPF factor, but many are a little unsure about what else goes on your face when you slap on your sunscreen. This is one of the reasons we loved the Soleo sunscreen in the January box. Including no chemical UV-absorbers, titanium dioxide, or synthetic preservatives, this organically produced sunscreen is also water resistant, biodegradable, with a low skin irritation factor and neutrally scented. We like!
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
The FAB cream was a smash hit with bb members and the bb team alike. Not only does it hydrate, calm and soothe, it also helps to improve the natural barrier function within the skin, keeping it naturally plump and moisturised. Plus, it contains no parabens, harsh chemicals or colourants, making it super safe for sensitive skin.
A little bit of love
There wasn't much not to love in our Feb boxes (if I do say so myself..) Whether you wanted to impress that special someone, or just show yourself some self love, these three products no doubt helped...
B by Bloom Col.lecta Eyeshadows
It's not often beauty lovers are able to find higly pigmented, silky soft shadows that wear well without a whopping price tag. However, we think we found the answer last Feb! These long-lasting, velvety shadows come in 6 stunning shades and blend like it's nobody's business! Plus, they come in stackable containers, so you can build your own personal totem pole of pretty colour.
MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Face Base
The rich yet lightweight moisturising formula, enriched with shea butter, vitamin A and beta-carotene, rejuvenates, nourishes and hydrates skin. We love using this cream to brighten, smooth and even out skin tone as a priming product - the perfect base for make-up application! It also feels delightful tapped onto skin, mixed with a little foundation, or even worn alone for a very natural glow! The perfect weekend look!
Sasy N Savy Rose Lavender Hand and Nail Repair Cream
Hand cream can be more exciting than it sounds - trust us! There is nothing like a dollop of delecatable cream rubbed into tired hands for a mid-afternoon pick me up, especially when it smells as amazing as this one from Sasy n Savy. Deeply nourishing and hydrating, this cream contains all the natural oils, butters and vitamins you'd expect to keep your hands looking and feeling young. I keep mine on my desk, so it's always within reach; the best compliment to my mani is always soft and smooth hands.
Bare faced Beauty
Embracing your bare face can be difficult, especially after years of makeup wearing. Luckily, we had some of the best brands in our March box to take the sting out of benching your heavy foundations. These continue to be our faves...
Yes to Carrots Lip Tint
These little lip tints pack a moisturising punch to your pout! Containing the goodness of coconut, jojoba and sunflower oils, these tints add a natural touch of colour - exactly what you want for everyday wear. Another reason we love them? They were our first 'taste' of the entire Yes to range... it goes without saying that we are now totally hooked!
Planet Eve Facial Cleansing Oil
bb's Marketing and PR Manager Lucy has long been a fan, so we were thrilled to introduce this amazing cleansing oil to bb members. You may be thinking - 'Oil to cleanse my face? Yeah right!' But just wait until you try it. As oil attracts oil, this cleanser does a pretty incredible job as drawing sebum out of the skin, including the oils left behind by makeup. It is also very gentle, so those with sensitive skin can wash away without the fear of irritation. Perfect for creating the cleanest bare faced beauty in town!
Bellamer Botanical Skincare Eye Treatment Balm
If there is one thing my mum taught me about skin, it's this: 'take care of it!' Sounds simple enough, but it's a concept many forget about in their daily beauty routines. If your eye area is lacking a little in the TLC department, get some Bellamer Balm on it ASAP. This nourishing balm formula helps to hydrate tired peepers overnight (literally! Just pop on before bed) Nothing like waking up to find your under eye concealer can call in sick because your eyes are just too darn bright and lively looking! Don't know the feeling? Try this miracle balm out now.
