Glow Mama Box Review by Nazia – July 2020

A huge thank you to Danielle who owns Glow Mama for sending this beautiful parcel of selfcare products to review. Being a busy mama, it is important to take time out for myself so this box is a healthy reminder that it’s okay to take a moment to rest, unwind and recharge. The beauty of a subscription box is that with just a click of a button surprise goodies are delivered to your door so even the busiest mums can have a little something to look forward to!

What I thought:

The items are packaged in a small recyclable box that has the elegant Glow Mama logo on the top. The products are wrapped in white tissue paper and inside I found a lovely little hand written note from Danielle which was a nice touch and shows how much thought has gone into the box. Included in every box is a monthly self-care checklist that are comprised of realistic activities that involve looking after your emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. I made sure to set some time aside to tick off some of these activities each day. Other items I found in the box:

Livia’s Million Squares – Salted Caramel

Gooey salted date caramel covers a crumbly oaty base topped with raw chocolate, how delicious does that sound? Bursting with nutritious natural ingredients and a blend of vegan proteins that tastes so amazingly good for a healthy snack! The deep rich silkiness from the dates goes hand in hand with the crunchy texture of the oats which easily pleased my growling tummy. It is the perfect size to pop in your mouth to beat those pre-lunch hunger pangs. I wouldn’t say it tastes much like a millionaire slice, but for a healthier alternative it still tastes pretty great.

Bampton House Clear Mind Bath Salts

What better reason to have a long soak in the tub than to try out a new product? These bath salts from the Bampton House range will infuse your bath water with the relaxing aromas of rosemary, lemongrass and peppermint and bring a herby, earthy scent that soothes and de-stresses. Containing Epsom Salt with Himalayan Salt – the purest salt on earth known for its detoxifying properties and infused with essential oils that has left my skin feeling radiant, and Jojoba oil that has helped hydrate and nourish my skin. I’ve had an awful headache this past week that nothing seems to shift but after a long relaxing bath inhaling in the lovely aromas not only did my headache disappear it also helped open up my sinuses – what a result!

Skin Sapiens Face Cream

This lightweight, quick-absorbing formula soothes and calms stressed skin for long-lasting comfort. The unscented moisturiser delivers immediate hydration to deeply replenish dry, wanting skin on the face. I have combination skin and this works wonderfully. It applies silkily to the skin without feeling sticking or greasy and only a small amount is needed to cover my full face. The thing that appeals to me the most is that it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals as it’s made using natural ingredients.

Willow & Blossom Botanicals Candle

Create a sense of tranquillity in your home with this gorgeous smelling candle from Willow & Blossom! Scented with rich seductive jasmine and warm musky amber, this candle has a luxurious element that adds a sophisticated aura to your home! Packaged in a sleek tin it is the perfect addition to any decor, either in your own home or as a gift to another. Light this candle, and drift away as the warm calming aromas surround you.

Eclat Skin London 24k Hydrogel Eye Pads

I must admit I do love using eye patches so I was really happy to receive these in my box. Being a busy tired mama my eyes (bags!) can use all the help they can get! I LOVED these patches, my eyes looked visibly smoother and feel refreshed and so much brighter. I also noticed it made applying my eye make-up so much easier, as everything applied more smoothly. My eyes definitely look and feel better than they have done in months! Provide your eyes with a dose of essential moisture with this brilliant 24k hydrogel eye patches.

Verdict?

This subscription box is filled with pampering products for mind, body and soul which encourages us to take some time out to focus on our health and well-being. As a mum it’s easy to forget that your physical and mental health matter when your time is taken up looking after a little one, so this is such an incredible box, highlighting how important it is to take care of yourself. This box is the perfect pick me up treat as it’s given me the perfect excuse to indulge in some much needed me time. It’s packed full of exciting brands and products I couldn’t wait to test out! I believe the price is an absolute bargain especially when the contents are worth over three times what you pay and you can get 15% off your first box with the code ‘BOXESSION15.’ I have linked the website and social media handles below, go check them out! So, whether you’re pregnant, have a newborn or a fully grown adult, Glow Mama is just for you!
