I started getting The Natural Beauty Box a couple of months ago and I love the themes that fit with the seasons each month. Products are always worth more than what you pay, it’s great value for money and the perfect way to fall in love with new products. It makes a great gift too! Check out the June box here.
In collaboration with Rare Beauty, this edit is worth over £75. For those who don’t know who Rare Beauty are, RB is an online skincare boutique who only feature natural and organic skincare by women-led UK brands. Everything is cruelty free, free from harsh chemicals and shipped using eco friendly packaging.
It’s the start of June and Summer so I’m excited to welcome back Rare Beauty for another exciting collaboration box.
This is the second collaboration with the lovely Corinne, founder of RB and after the huge success of the last box, I’m sure this will be another big hit with subscribers.

- Silvan Skincare Bliss Balm
- Soapfolk Lip Balm (in juniper, lemon, rose or peppermint).

Five great travel items from women led brands ideal for summer days. These products will keep you looking awesome this summer while supporting some great small UK brands.
1. Silvan Skincare Bliss Balm 60ml/£14.50
I absolutely love silvan products and use their moisturiser and sleep balm religiously so was excited to add another one of their products to my collection.
Bliss Balm will soothe and relax you when used as a massage balm making it perfect for a pamper evening. This 100% natural, vegan balm blend is full of organic oils to soothe, moisturise and reduce inflammation.
The solid balm melts on contact with the skin that sinks in easily leaving no residue and comes in plastic free packaging. *Glass container and Aluminium Lid. Recyclable or Reusable.
Silvan Beauty Balms are made with the highest quality, organic and sustainably sourced plant-based ingredients, registered with the Vegan Society and certified as cruelty free with the Leaping Bunny programme. Free from mineral oils, silicones, parabens, SLS/SLES, artificial fragrance and colourings.
Ingredients: apricot kernel oil*; jojoba seed oil*; shea butter*; olive fruit oil*; sunflower seed oil; candelilla wax; arnica flower extract*; vitamin E; ylang ylang flower oil*; vetiver root oil*; lavender oil*
2. Soapfolk Organic Juniper Lip Balm 12ml/£5
I’m a big fan of soap folk and their beautiful products as well. I use their soaps and have the rose lip balm already. I kind of want to collect them all as they’re so lovely and a great price.
They come in these sweet little tins that are great to give as little gifts. All of soap folks products are beautiful and high quality. The lip balm soothes, conditions and protects to prep your lips for your favourite lipstick. A little goes a long way.
Our lips lack the protective outer layer and oil glands the rest of our skin has which means they are more susceptible to the elements. The juniper berry balm is a fab everyday balm, whatever the weather.
Kind to skin and the environment, the ethically sourced lip balm comes in a plastic free pot which is recyclable or reusable.
Ingredients: Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil*, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter*, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil*, Copernicia cerifera (carnauba) cera*, Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil*, Citrus aurantium dulcis (sweet orange) peel oil, Juniperus communis (juniper berry) fruit oil* Naturally occuring allergens: d-Limonene, Linalol
I already have this mask and it’s one of my favourite things I’ve used lately. Pure Savvy’s products are so lovely and definitely worth the higher price tag.
They all contain amazing ingredients that do absolute wonders for your skin. I think they’re fantastic for busy women who need something that really works and is immediate.
Get glowing skin in an instant with Just a Minute Brightening Facial Mask by Pure Savvy. Fruit enzymes of Bilberry, Grapefruit, Orange and Lemon effectively exfoliate dead skin cells. Potent botanical extracts transform tired, dull looking skin into a fresh, bright and even complexion.

4. Freyaluna Regain Your Balance Harmonising Facial Mist 10ml/£1.50 (100ml/£25)
I hadn’t used this product before but I really loved the facial oil from this line, it was actually one of the very first Rare Beauty products I tried over a year ago.
This 100% natural facial mist contains a base of soothing rosewater, with a blend of essential oils. It helps to refresh skin and enliven pale or dull complexions.
Adding a facial tonic to your daily routine and using it after cleansing helps to get the best results from your moisturiser.
It comes in this sweet little glass bottle that very reminiscent of Alice & Wonderland. Freyaluna is very good when it comes to using quality ingredients and making their products as eco friendly as possible.
Ingredients: Rosa Damascena flower distillate (rosewater), essential oils of Cananga odorata (ylang-ylang), Pelargonium graveolens (geranium), Pogostemon cablin (patchouli).
5. Elsa’s Natural Deodorant Creme in Lemon Ice 45g/£11
I have the ocean deo already and use it every day. Scent wise the lemon one appealed to me most but I loved the packaging of the ocean one which looks more aimed at adults.
I’ve really got into natural deodorants this past year and using products like this has made such a difference to my skin and just how fresh I feel overall. Other spray deos have left my underarms feeling sore and itchy in the past and I hated the packaging and that they never seemed to last. This deo has totally changed my life and I feel like I wouldn’t use anything else and love it as much.
Plastic free natural deodorant crème by Elsa’s Organic Skin Foods. The 100% natural deodorant stops odours and soothes skin without blocking pores. Lemon and grapefruit provide perspiration and odour minimisation protection.
The super concentrated 4 in 1 deodorant crème works hard to deodorise, soothe, detoxify and nourish skin. Suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive. Also suitable for use by children or pre-teens. Can be used under arms and on any other parts of the body that need to stay fresh all day long.
Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Maranta Arundinacea (Arrowroot) Powder*, Ricinus Communis (Castor Bean) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Magnesium Oxide, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Himalayan Pink Salt, Kaolin Clay, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Oil, Limonene, Citral, Linalool, Geraniol *Certified Organic, naturally occurring in essential oils.
