Not only was I looking forward to the March Pink Parcel box because I’d seen the previews on Instagram, I just knew that the International Women’s Day themed box would be filled with amazing products.
Plus, I was so impressed to see the brand getting behind the gender equality campaign #PressforProgress. I love that a company that produces such amazing products also has a social conscience and were doing their bit to raise awareness for women’s issues. My kind of brand.
So, what was in the box?
Two things really excited me about this box before it even arrived: Dr Botanicals facial oil and the Balance Me mist. Frankly, I love anything with rose as a key ingredient so I felt sure that I would love this and the mist is an exclusive sample and who doesn’t like to be the first to try something.
Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil
I’ve never tried a facial oil before and this seemed like a good one to start with as it ticked so many of my boxes; it’s plant-based, cruelty free and suitable for all skin types.
The Dr Botanicals facial oil contains both Vitamins A and C to rejuvenate the skin whilst diminishing the signs of ageing. It also includes almond oil to moisturise and nourish the skin. This oil smelt amazing and feels luxurious, a little really does go a long way. This was a beautiful treat to massage into my face after removing the day’s makeup. Honestly, it feels like a spa day every time I use it.
Optiat Coffee Scrub Potent Peppermint
I couldn’t even begin to tell you how much I miss coffee now that I can longer drink it.
Now as a mum to small kids, I can’t tell you if this helps with a hangover but I can tell you that after a night of interrupted sleep and the clocks going forward, the peppermint smell in this really woke me up. It did its job and my skin was left super soft, so I was a happy bunny.
