Anyone following my previous reviews of the Natural Supply Co Subscription Box would know that I love these boxes, so it comes as a bit of a surprise that my initial reaction to the Summer edit was a bit ho-hum. Don’t get me wrong, I still think this subscription box is one of the best in the market. With 7-brands represented in a combination of skincare, makeup, body care and lifestyle essentials there is still a lot to enjoy. It’s just that the wow factor crept up on me a little slower, this time, round. Regardless once I started exploring the products and putting them to use my perception changed, and I began to see the greater value in this Summer box.
The Luk Lip Nourish Tasting Plate is a unique approach to sampling. Highlighting the fact that this creme soft sheer lip gloss hydrates and protects lips with food actives, the tasting plate (see what they did there?) provides samples of the 7-shades of lip colour in the range. Each sample provided enough for two applications and provided the opportunity to try colours I would not normally wear. This product feels incredible on the lips, leaving me with a soft and creamy feel. Just as soon as I wrap this up, I will be heading over to their site to buy the Nude Cinnamon, Pink Juniper and Tea Rose shades.
Another product I will be purchasing as a direct result of this Summer Subscription Box is the Ivadore Tanning Treatment. I was a bit sceptical that a healthy, sun-kissed tan was possible from a product using a mixture of natural and organic ingredients. I needn’t have been, the Ivadore’s self-tanning cream produced a lovely colour (read – no orange tinge) with no overpowering odours or fake tan stains on clothing and sheets. I found it worked best on the arms and face and when applied to the legs using with a tanning mitt. I also found that letting the colour develop overnight resulted in the best colour.
And while I am at the Natural Supply Co online store, I might also add the Atom Clay Mask to my shopping basket. This tingly clay mask delivers on its promise to provide an all-natural deep pore cleansing mask to remove blackheads & minimise pore size (yep - minimise pore size!).
If natural skincare and beauty products appeal to you, I would recommend signing up to the seasonal subscription boxes from the Natural Supply Co. It is an excellent way to explore and test products before purchasing them. Sign up for their newsletter to be notified when the Autumn Boxes are released.
