Amarya Beauty Box Review - April 2013

I received my Amarya beauty box this morning and I am pleased with the contents.  I have used the John Masters products before and am familiar with  the brand Essential Care (I love their creamy coconut cleanser & rose moisturiser).  You can see my review of the cleanser here.

Onto the contents -


Essential Care Gentle Herb Shampoo 30ml (£3.50) - "the first ever shampoo to be certified to Soil Association standards, this lightweight, delicately scented shampoo is ideal for those with dry and irritated scalps to soothe and nourish". Suitable for all hair types - looking forward to trying this out.

Essential Care Organic Avocado Replenishing Cream 15ml (£7.50) - "Organic avocados have been combined with olives and shea butter to create a wonderfully nourishing face cream".  This is suitable for dry/mature skin or if you spend time outdoors on a cold day.  I've received this before in an Amarya box and liked it.  (My favourite Essential Care Moisturiser is Rose Moisturiser) but happy to use this.

John Masters Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash 30ml - used these two matching products before and really liked them so happy to see them in the box.  "A creamy and wonderfully scented body wash that creates a great lather whilst being sulphate free. Gentle enough for all skin types and safe to use on the face".

John Masters Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk 30ml - again used before.  "A perfect accompaniment to the body wash, this milk absorbs easily leaving you feeling silky smooth".  These are great for weekends away or try me sizes.

Blend Collective - this is a new brand for me and there are two 5ml samples included - Enlivening Hand & Body Lotion (Sicilian Lemon, May Chang, Myrtle, Lime) and Unwinding Hand Cream (Sandalwood, Frankincense, Cedarwood, Neroli).  Looking forward to testing these out.

Have you used any of these products? What are your thoughts on the contents of this month's box?

  3. Looks like a really good box and I have always wanted to try John Masters Organics. I can't really sign up to another beauty box however as I already subscribe to Glossybox and I have just subscribed to Birchbox.....surely a third would be greedy?!? x
