SoukSouk Little Green Beauty Box - August 2013

I'm a sucker for a beauty box. I love the surprise and getting to try products I may never have discovered before. SoukSouk Little Green Beauty Box* offers 5 samples that are natural, organic and chemical free all in a monthly box with a free magazine dedicated to green beauty. I was kindly sent the August 2013 box to review for you.



The first thing to notice about this box is, unlike other boxes, there is no inner box. Instead the products are housed within the outer box, surrounded by shredded paper to protect them meaning less waste. Also unlike other boxes, SoukSouk comes with its own magazine as well as a product menu. The magazine is packed full of green beauty hints and tips plus some natural product recommendations. This is a lovely touch and I really enjoyed reading it. 

 
Dr Alkaitis Organic Day Cream RRP £6.95 (5ml)
This cream is in a small pump bottle like a perfume sample. I found the packaging very difficult to get the cream out of. The ingredients boast echinacea root, St John's wort flowers, water navelwort, horsetail, coltsfoot and marigold blossoms with organic shea butter and aloe vera gel. The cream has a lovely smell and soaks into the skin well.

Dr Alkaitis Organic Night Cream RRP £6.95 (5ml)
I had the same packaging problems with this one! The night cream contains olive, jojoba, wild carrot, Roman chamomile and hundred-leaf rose blossom.


Bloom Remedies Daily Balance Cream RRP £10.99
Much better packaging with this product. This comes in a glass bottle with a pump top and is a fairly thin cream so is pumped easily. This cream contains 77% organic ingredients including sweet orange, geranium and rose. Tis runs in well and a little goes a lovely way. The scent of this is gorgeous and so natural smelling.

Alva Stressed Hands Cream RRP £2.03 (18ml)
This hand cream contains avocado, calendula and chamomile and is said to soothe dry, coarse and hardworking hands. This has a strong smell which, although not unpleasant, smells almost medicinal. It leaves hands feeling soft but not greasy.


Avril Certified Organic Mascara in Black RRP £7
This mascara is new to the UK from a French company. I have never used a green beauty mascara before so I'm happy to see this in the box. The want is a great shape, bristly but not too big. 

Box Bonus! Avril Eyelash Curler
It's always nice to get something extra! 

This box is £12 plus postage making it £14.95 a month. The products are worth more than you pay and this box included a great mix of lovely natural things. I also love the addition of the magazine.
