I received my A Beautiful World's Autumn/Winter Beauty Box and I wanted to share with you my initial impressions.
After spotting posts on various blogs on the spring/summer sampler box and the gorgeous goodie's inside I knew I had to get my name on the waiting list for the autumn/winter box. And let me tell you I am not disappointed that I did, because this box is jam packed full of full size and sample products that I am eager to try out. I've actually never tried products from any of these companies which is great because this will be a great opportunity to discover new brands.
I have to mention I was rather impressed with the service, I ordered the box on Wednesday morning and the same evening I received a text informing me that the box would be in my hand son Thursday morning.
Anyway without further rambling lets get into the products...
The Konjac Sponge (due to go on sale soon)
This is a 100% natural vegetable fibre sponge with nourishing rich french pink clay. Thi sproducts sounds interesting,you can use the sponge to cleanse and exfoliate the skin as well as to remove makeup. I've had my eye on this product for a while so it was definitely the product I'm most excited about!
Naisture Collagen Paper Mask Pack ( 5 packs retail for £10)
I've never tried a paper face mask so this will definitely be one of the first products to be tried. The mask contains vegetable collagen from carrots to help strengthen the skin as well getting to the skin to look more radiant. With the colder whether my skin has started to look a but dull so hopefully this mask will it give it a much needed boost!
Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-in Conditioner and Heat Protection Spray 2oz (8oz retails for £19)
I love that this company makes products that are 100% vegan, free of gluten, alcohol, parabens and sulphates, as well as cruelty-free. My heat protection spray is towards it's last legs so this will make the perfect replacement.
VMV Hypo-allergenic Know-It-Oil 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil 50ml (125ml retails for £26)
I love to use coconut oil as a deep conditioning treatment for my hair. Coconut oil has mainly uses and is a great little multi-tasker to have handy.
S.W. Basics Shea Butter Cream 1oz (3.75oz retails for £26)
This cream is made of only 3 ingredients fairtrade shea butter, organic coconut oil and organic olive oil. I'm thinking that this will be a great little skin rescuer during the winter.
S.W. Basics Cocoa Lip Balm 0.15oz (4 lipbalms for £12)
As with the Shea butter cream the lip balm is also only made with 3 ingredients, I love that this company makes products with minimal ingredients and are chemical free.
Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquer-Vermis in Primrose Hill Picnic Full Size (£11)
I was excited to see a full sized nail varnish within the products. The shade is similar to something I already have and more summer than autumn-winter so I would have preferred another colour. However I have never tried Butter London products before and I love that their polish's are free from formaldehyde, DBP and toluene.
Indie Lee Squalene Facial Oil (1oz £22)
I have to admit squalene oil is not something I have heard of but I'm definitely intrigued. Believe it or not my night cream is nearly finished, I feel like this box somehow knew just exactly what I was in need off.
Marble & Milkweed Nourishing Body Oil 3.7ml (118ml retails for £29)
This nourishing body oil is a blend of rose, cardomom and sandalwood oils, it smells absolutely heavenly. And I know it's going to make a great treat for my skin.
Marble and Milkweed Modern Chai Tea Number 2 (2oz retails for £9)
I have to admit I'm not a tea drinker so this product will be passed on.
001 Intense Elixir Precious Finds 10ml (due to go on sale soon)
001 is niche botanical skincare brand which new to a beautiful world and due to go on sale soon. This is a facial oil which smells absolutely gorgeous and with its blend of sandalwood, patchouli, rose, frankinscense and vitamin E sounds absolutely luxurious.
Tili bag (12 pack retails for £6.50)
To be honest this is just a glammed up version of plain zip lock freezer bag. I wouldn't buy it but seeing as it's come in the box I guess it adds a extra bit of cuteness rather than using a plain bag for your liquid items whilst travelling.
Last but not least there's a handy A Beautiful World Pink Tote bag!
I have to say overall this is an amazing box, well worth the 20 quid I spent on it! I can't wait to have a play with the products and I'll definitely be following up with some reviews.
The box sure was super popular as it is already out of stock, however you can sign up to get on the waiting list to be emailed when the Spring/Summer box is released by clicking here.

P.S I am still on my buy nothing new for a year challenge however if you read my original post personal hygiene items are excluded.
