Best Beauty Boxes UK

Beauty boxes. What’s not to love?! You get to try new and amazing beauty products tailored to you from the comfort of your own home, and sometimes you get full-size products as well, saving you tons of money.

The issue nowadays though is that there are so many around, and that can make it difficult to choose the perfect one for you. Some people want to choose just one box, some don’t mind subscribing to a bunch. All of us though want to get the most for our money. Today I wanted to help those of you who are on the hunt for your new favourite beauty box by talking about a few of my personal favourites. 

I’ve decided to compile a list of the beauty boxes that I am currently subscribed to, enjoy and therefore recommend to others. There are still beauty boxes out there that I am yet to try and there are new ones appearing all the time, so if you know of one that I’ve not mentioned that you think are worth a recommendation too, please do leave a comment at the end and let everyone know!

For each box, I’ve written the pros and cons so that you can use that to work out which would be the best box for you, and I’ll be showing examples of what products I’ve received from each as well.

PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick review

Who is loving the beautiful weather? Who isn’t loving the smell of body odour that comes with sweating in the hot weather? Well, if you are one of those who hate body odour but prefer using natural products, then this post is for you.

The PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick is a natural, crystal deodorant that is fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin.  It works by applying a thin layer of mineral salt which is a bacteriostatic agent that prevents odour causing bacteria from growing, and it does not block pores. It is suitable for sensitive skin, is free of Aluminium Zirconium and Aluminium Chlorohydrate, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, parabens, fragrance and silicones.

When a product has as many 5-star reviews as this one does, it’s worth paying attention to it and checking it out. It definitely captured my attention and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with all of your beautiful faces!

It comes packaged in a shiny, black plastic tube with the PitRok logo in white and gold in the front. It has a screw cap lid and the product itself is a hard, translucent crystal that can be pushed up from the bottom. It hold 100g of product.

E45 Daily Lotion Spray review

Hey guys! Do you ever get dry, itchy skin? Flaky skin? Eczema prone? Looking for a product to get rid of your eczema or dry areas but prefer to put minimal effort into your skincare routine? No fear! This post is for you.

Of course, it’s not just for those with drier skin. Even if you just want a low maintenance body care product to incorporate into your routine, this post is also for you.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the brand E45, especially if you do have dry skin. They’re a great brand for eczema sufferers, and recently they released a new body moisturiser in the form of a spray: the E45 Daily Lotion Spray. This product also comes in an intensive version, but today I shall just be reviewing the Daily Lotion Spray.

E45 explain that this is their trusted formula, but in a fast-absorbing spray for quick application. It contains no added colours or fragrances, is suitable for dry and sensitive skin and is dermatologically tested. It promises 24 hour moisture with a non-greasy formula.

So what’s the difference? What is it for? Well, instead of having to either pump or squeeze lotion from a bottle, with this you simply get to spray it onto the skin, massage in and go. It’s so minimum fuss and effort and really helps to attract those who just either don’t have time or don’t have the effort to give their body care routine any thought. 

Of course that’s not the only reason you may want to try a spray version. I bought this for my daughter to try as well as myself as my little girl gets terrible eczema that really flares up in the warmer weather. Sometimes she doesn’t like having a regular cream applied either, and she will pull her legs away or run away and so on, so something a bit different to get her to cooperate is sometimes a plus.

It comes packaged in a white spray can in the same style and design as other E45 products, except it looks more like a deodorant than a moisturiser, so make sure that you remember which is which!
