Lemonade Box Review by Nazia – December 2019

What is Lemonade Box?

It’s simple. They want as many people as possible to enter the world of self-care. They aim to make it as easy and as smooth as possible by showing you that it does not have to be time consuming or an overwhelming inconvenience to your life. Instead, they want to walk with you on your self-care journey and see you glow with positivity and self-love. No matter what is going on in your life and no matter how much you don’t believe it is necessary, your mental and physical health should always be your priority. Life can get really stressful at times and they want to aid your happiness and relaxation as much as possible. So, when life does give you those sour lemons, let us be your Lemonade.

I must admit, since becoming a mummy I haven’t been practising self-care as much as I should, as all my time and effort goes into making sure my little one is happy and healthy so it’s been low on my list of priorities. Sometimes life as a new mother can be challenging so it’s good to stop and take a step back, so I’m really looking forward to some me time. I’d like to say thank you to Kyra and Priya for sending this box out to me, I am truly grateful to be reviewing this subscription.

What I thought:

The items arrived in a grey and white marbled box with the name printed clearly on the front. On the side the quote ‘when life gives you lemon, we give you lemonade’ and their website printed on the back. On first impressions the box is very pretty and the scents coming through the box smell divine! Inside the flap there is a heart- warming note from the Lemonade box team to remind you that it’s ok to slow down and take some time out for yourself. There is also a lovely handwritten welcome note and a monthly mission slip to have some fun this festive season! Additionally, there is a contents letter detailing the products within:

Creightons H2O Boost Hyaluronic Hot Cloth Cleanser with Muslin Cloth

Designed to even out skin tone to reveal a radiant complexion, effectively removing makeup and gently lifting away dead skin cells. This was my first time trying out a hot cloth cleanser and I must say I really liked it! I know some of the BoXession members rate hot cloth cleansers but it wasn’t something that appealed to me – until now. My face feels so much fresher and cleaner than my regular cleanser and I love that it’s so affordable too.

Whittard Christmas Hot Chocolate

Whittard signature luxury hot chocolate blended with a hint of allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. My cupboard is full of Whittard items from rocky road hot chocolate to their instant ice teas – I adore their products so I was excited to try this. What can I say, this was like a warm hug in a mug – perfect to warm you up through these cold and dreary winter nights! Delicious silky rich chocolate with a dash of warmth running through it from the spices, best enjoyed curled up on the sofa with a good book and a handful of marshmallows.

Amoora Awaken Shower Bomb

Kick start the day with this revitalising mix of grapefruit, geranium and mandarin. Wow just wow! I have never used anything like this before! The scent the shower bomb gives off is insanely good and fills the whole bathroom with gorgeous floral and citrus smells which are sure to invigorate and tingle your senses. I take a shower every morning and I definitely felt really uplifted and energised and ready to start my day. I love that this shower bomb is easy to use, is suitable for all skin types, vegan friendly, ethically and sustainably sourced and I’m definitely going to check out their other products. Transform your bathroom into an exotic haven and let your hair down with this unique shower bomb!

Elemental Herbology Mandarin & Geranium Hand and Body Cream

Transforms parched dry skin and infused with botanical oils of mandarin and geranium for an uplifting scent that also restores moisture and soothes the skin. This cream is silky smooth and sinks effortlessly into the skin keeping it thoroughly hydrated. It has a delicate scent of mandarin and geranium that lingers gently on the skin keeping it soft and supple. This is exactly what my skin needs at the moment as the cold harsh weather is really drying it out at the moment. I like that it has a pump dispenser making it extremely easy to apply.

BuBu Skincare #YouPucker Lip Plumping Mask

Pucker up and perfect your pout with this Botox infused advanced glitterati lip mask, leaving your lips pumped, primed & ready for action. I really like using masks, whether it’s for my face, hair or in this case my lips! The lip masks are always great, especially how comical they make you look! When applied it did tingle my lips, but not in an uncomfortable way and I did notice a slight difference in their appearance. My lips also felt super soft and hydrated and I love that it’s vegan, cruelty free and environmentally friendly too!

BusyB Busy Life Notebook

Life is busy and most days I end up forgetting what I need to be doing (I blame the baby brain!!). This cute and handy sized note book has become a permanent item in my handbag to jot down my never-ending list of things to do. What I didn’t expect was all the little extras this note book features, like the tear out pages, stickers and ribbon marker which are all helping to keep me organised!

Verdict

One of the things that I really like about this box is all the uplifting messages and notes from the Lemonade Box team and paired with the products it was like receiving a much-needed little hug in a box! This subscription is filled with pampering products for mind, body and soul which encourages us to take some time out, rest, relax and focus on our health and well-being. It’s easy to forget to that your physical and mental health matter so this is such an incredible box, highlighting how important it is to take care of yourself. So, start your wellness journey with a Lemonade box and with our exclusive discount you can get your first two boxes for only £17!!
