I have been enjoying all the goodies in the June Native Box so much, we’re almost a full week into July and I’m only just getting around to blogging about it!
I have written about the many benefits of Native Box before. It’s an excellent service that introduces you to more conscious brands and products, by delivering samples right to your door. I have often commented on the fact that some of our big retail chains and supermarkets haven’t quite cottoned on to our increasing interest in eco friendly, ethical and Australian made products and it’s often a hunt to find them. Native Box is like a ‘try before you buy’ of some of our most exciting brands (who just happen to be doing the right thing by the planet!)
As a genuine fan of the concept and the company, I’ll be reviewing a Native Box every two months and will also be giving you a peek at some of the gorgeous products in their beauty box (for us green girls).
The June Native Box was filled with loads of lovely things, including a Bondi Chai which is perfect for this winter weather and a natural Weleda Shampoo & Conditioner. In amongst all the stunning samples, these are my top three product picks.
Olivella Face & Body Bar
I often wash with coconut oil (yes, I am that addicted to the stuff!) but that’s mainly because I haven’t been able to find a ‘soap like bar’ that doesn’t dry out my skin. This one from Olivella is gentle enough to use on the face and has a nourishing, lasting after effect. Olivella is one brand I’ll be on the lookout for from now on.
Sweet William ‘Sweet As Chocolate’ range in Dark Orange
After forcing myself to eat chocolate with an incredibly high amount of cacao because it’s better for you, it was refreshing to come a cross a ‘better’ version of chocolate that still tastes like ‘the good stuff.’ Sweet William’s Dark Orange has a light, creamy texture with a strong orange flavour and was the perfect treat for tea time.
Brookfarm Power Porrij
I love a good sleep in and am always looking for easy breakfast solutions that don’t involve waking the neighbours with my juicer! This is truly a gourmet style porridge that you can make in 90 seconds flat. More than just oats, Brookfarm has also included supergrains like quinoa and it packs a powerful flavour punch.
