Winter Is Here!
Hello! It's been a few days since I have blogged because I have been on holidays with my husband and baby, but I'm back now with an Unboxing of the Winter Eco Box from Lust Have It*
So let's get into it.
I have noticed that the Eco Box Doesn't have a separate box the the mailing packaging, I'm guessing because its more Eco friendly to just use one box. I actually like that system because even though its nice to get lovely boxes with pretty prints every month, I know that I wont use them and they will end up in the recycling anyway.
All the items in my Eco Box for Winter 2014
I have used Billie Goat Soap before receiving this one and I really liked it. Goats milk soap it really moisturising and I am always on the hunt for good quality soaps that don't dry my skin out. Billie Goat Soap is Eco concious as well, using sustainable Palm Oil as well as moisturising Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Grape Seed Oil and Castor Oil. This soap has a bit of a milky smell to it but that doesn't bother me and I am really looking forward to getting stuck into this!
I am really curious to give this The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Australian Jojoba oil a try. I have heard about this company from other bloggers but have never had a chance to try it out. According to 'the card' it moisturises pretty much everything, from the face to the lips to hair to nails. I would love to try this on my hair! This is a really light oil and I think it would last ages. One pump seems to be enough to cover my face and neck. Jojoba oil is really good for problem skin such as psoriasis, acne, cradelcap, rosacea, dermatitis and nappy rash. Goodness the list goes on! I may do a review on the product after I have used it for a while so let me know in the comments if that interests you.
I am a major fan of Sukin Products. I have the Nourishing Lip Treatment in my bag which I LOVE and bub is using the Eddie Energy Saver Bath + Body Wash in the bath every night. I have also used the Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser for a while last year. I found it really good for making my skin feel squeaky clean, and I also dabbled with the Sukin Cream Cleanser for a while, so naturally I was pretty happy to see a travel size cleanser in this seasons Eco box. Sukin uses chamomile, Aloe Vera, witch hazel, Macadamia and green tea to balance the skin and make it looking fresh. On my holiday I found myself without a cleanser so I will pop this straight in my suitcase for the next adventure!
It's always nice to receive a make-up item when it is unsure if one will be included or not. I will use this Natural Glamour 2 Glo powder a lot more during Summer because that's the only time of year I really wear bronzer. This is a surprisingly light and easily bendable loose powder. As you can see from the swatch on my wrist it is quiet a dark bronzer for me so I will have to use it sparingly. I like the packaging though because there is a mesh cover where the powder comes out so it doesn't come out everywhere. The powder comes in two shades Summer (dark) and Winter (light.)

It's a bit messy but I accidentally dropped it. oops
Of course we got a few sachets included in our box, I'll start from the left. I received the Karpati Bio Intelligent Eye Essence Mask. I am a bit iffy about this company because I cant seem to find much information on them or their animal testing policy. Every other product here so far is cruelty free but Karpati hold big ??? over their name. hmm
I also received the Weleda Oat Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner which I will pass on or put in my travel stash for emergencies. Also in a cute little plastic jar is a sample of the La Mav Bio-A7 Firming Eye Cream. I am looking forward to trying this out because it looks fantastic. I will wait until my Dr Hauschka Eye cream has finished first.
Final Thought: This was definitely an interesting combo of tried and true products- the Billie Goat Soap and Sukin Foaming Cleanser, new finds - the Natural Glamour Bronzer and Jojoba Oil and even more things to come ( hello fresh voucher.) So I really enjoyed this box and I think I have a few more in depth reviews to post up on a couple of these items soon.
In the mean time...
