Amarya Beauty Box -May

10 May 2013

What have we got in Amarya's May Beauty Box?

Well this month it's an interesting one. There's only three main products in this box but as you can see one of them is a pretty great size! So included this month is:

Madara Body Soap ~ A refreshing aromatherapy formulated body soap (wash) in the deliciously minty  scent of fresh mint / peppermint. One of my all time favourite scents/flavours!  As you can image the formula is comprised of wonderful soothing fresh peppermint oil and even has Algae extract to give a deep but gentle cleanse!

I've just given this a little tester on my hands and it is beautifully subtle and like they say feels very gentle and not at all stripping. Could be a winner! The formula was quite foamy so i checked the ingredients incase it had SLS in but it actually has Sodium-Coco-sulphate, which is the natural form of SLS and is AOkay with me!

Madara Tinting Fluid ~ As it says on the tin, this is a lightweight tinting moisturiser that is designed to hydrate and tint the complexion to give you a even and illuminated complexion. Included are a sample sachet of each shade available, Moon Flower a Rose Beige that looks suitable for fairer pinker toned skins and Sun Flower a Golden Beige that might suit a more tan yellow based skin tone. Formulated with Rosehip extracts and 100% natural.

Very interested in these, I love finding great natural formula foundations and tinted moisturisers so super glad they were included. Reckon i might have to do a mixology job with the shades though to work with my tricky skin tone.

Madara Time Miracle Day Cream ~ An advanced Anti-Aging day cream for al skin types. Formulated with the anti-aging G7 complex and water free. This is said to repair skin's DNA and stimulate youth protein growth. Helps tackle wrinkles and lines and make skin feel smoother and more supple. 

Cowshed Slender Cow Extra Firming Body Butter ~ This firming lotion harnesses the power of seaweed and dermochlorella to target cellulite and tone up bums, tums, hips and thighs! It also contains an amazing cocktail of essential oils including orange, grapefruit, ylang ylang, red mandarin and carrot seed oil for toning. The dermochlorella is identified to tone and firm the body up to 46% and reduce the appearance of stretch marks by 32% over a 12 week period.

Hmm well i'm always sceptical over big claims but despite a lot of research into why lotions like this don't really work I am still a self confessed junkie for stretch mark and cellulite creams. So as much as i pretend to scoff and act like i'm not expecting miracles, well i secretly am! Teehe.

Overall, I think this is a lovely little box this month. It's got some great products for the body and some even better ones for the face, I always love it best when there is a good balance between skincare and makeup and luckily this box has provided that. Plus I can enjoy Cowshed a brand that i know well and I get to explore a rnage of different products from a brand that I don't. The Madara items came with a whole bunch of really interesting leaflets and info on their products which is always nice to have a read of!
