I started getting The Natural Beauty Box a couple of months ago and I love the themes of the boxes each month. Products are always worth much more than you pay, it’s such good value for money and a great way to try new products. It makes a great gift too! Check out the May box here.
There will be 5 items, all carefully chosen as we head into summer to revitalize and refresh skin whilst switching on your senses with invigorating and energizing aromas to reduce anxiety, restore calm, uplift you mood and create feelings of positivity.

I loved the fresh citrus scents of the products that really made me feel in a Summery mood. This box includes 4 full-sized products that will help you look and feel your best this summer.
1. Kathleen Natural Citrus Cheer Bubble Bath & Shower Gel (150ml/£18)
When I first got this I saw the name I knew it was going to be a zingy uplifting product. It’s a shame about the packaging and that the bottle is plastic but I can’t fault the product itself. It foams up nicely under running water and smells amazing. Great way to start the day!

2. Kathy Sue Ann’s Super Nourishing Organic Body Scrub (200ml/£14.95)
I absolutely love sea salt scrubs and this one is so good. I love all the nourishing oils that make my skin super soft. This product doesn’t have a citrus scent but a gorgeous tropical, coconutty scent that transports your senses to being on holiday. This is good for those who have sensitivities to essential oils or just don’t like a lot of fragrance in their products.
The coconut and avocado oil work in harmony to give you soft skin with no need to moisturise afterwards so it’s a great 2 in 1. I really enjoyed this product.
Ingredients: Maris Sal (Dead Sea Salt), cocos nucifera ( extra virgin coconut oil), prunus amygdalus dulcis( sweet almond oil), vitis vinifera (grapeseed oil), persea gratissima (virgin avocado oil), a-tocopherol (Vitamin E).
3. Aromantic Skincare Organic Orange Blossom Hydrolate (30ml/£6.50)
I’m a big fan of face sprays and use them a lot in the summer. I usually use ones with rosewater in so was interested to try this one. It was really refreshing and felt lovely on your skin. My skin can get irritated and have little flare-ups, especially when it’s hot. This really helps with that and is a must have product. I always carry this in my handbag now.
Ingredients: Citrus aurantium Amara Flower Water.
4. Ben & Anna Lime Deodorant (60g/£9.95)
I’ve used this product before and really loved it. This was before they added these eco tubes and they just had the plastic deo sticks then. Not only do these products look absolutely stunning, are eco friendly but they actually work too. It’s also vegan certified!
It’s full of gorgeous organic ingredients, lots of lovely oils to look after your skin while keeping you fresh all day. I find it works very well after you’ve had a bath or shower and your underarms have some moisture to help it go over smoothly.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter*, Maranta Arundinacea Root Powder*, Zea Mays Starch, Cocos Nucifera Oil*, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil*, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Helianthus Annuus Seed Cera, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Shorea Robusta Resin, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Limonene**, Rhus Succedanea Fruit Cera, Citrus Limon Fruit Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Fruit Oil, Citrus Reticulata Peel Oil, Tocopherol, Linalool**, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Citral**, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil*, Geraniol**, Daucus Carota Sativa Root Extract*, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract* .
5. Benecos Sea Buckthorn & Orange Hand Cream (75ml/£3.45)
I loved the look of this hand cream and thought it was a great size for my handbag. It smells gorgeous and takes care of my hands which get very dry and chapped. The fragrance and ingredients don’t seem to upset my sore skin though.
It smells so uplifting and like pure sunshine. The formula is thick and more heavy-duty than you would think, it’s a great little product. Would definitely get again.

The Natural Beauty Box created a great edit with great products that are perfect for summer. Uplifting scents, deodorant to keep you fresh, nourishing cream and exfoliant to make your skin smooth and ready to bare.
This collection was worth over £52 and great value for money, subscribers got more than double what they paid for! Want to buy this past box? Check it out here.
I’m always impressed by the value offered by this beauty box, and the theme is always lovely. The boxes help you discover the best small businesses that aren’t full of junk and are 100% vegan ALWAYS. You can get one off boxes or subscribe to get one every month.
Interested to see the last box (June) in collaboration with Rare Beauty? Check it out here. *Get your order in ASAP though as they’re almost sold out! The new July box will be available at the end of the month I believe.
*I was gifted this box but not expected to review, this in no way biases my opinion of the brand. This is an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I hope you enjoyed this post and that you check them out.
