Amarya Beauty Box Nov 2011

My first Amarya Beauty Box arrived last week! With the success of previous Beauty Boxes Birchbox, Glossybox, Boudoir Privé, Feel Unique etc. Amarya have released their own containing only natural and organic products available in their store. As I'm trying to convert to using as many products that aren't harmful to me as possible I knew this was the one for me! It is currently £10 a month including p&p and always contains full sized products up to the vale of £20, trial sized products and samples as well as a mystery offer only available to Beauty Box subscribers.

 The box is very like a shoe box, made of cardboard but it is sturdy. When I've found somewhere to put the products I will use the box for storage. I love the simple design, very clean and pretty.

So this is what you are presented with upon opening your first box.

The first card has message from the Amarya team welcoming you to your first Beauty Box. The next has a run down of the products and a discount code of 15% off all four brands. The third has a message about inviting your friends to join, by which you both get a free box each (if anyone is thinking of joining let me know then we can get free boxes :) )The final piece of paperwork is a little Christmas catalogue.

They also throw in an eco friendly shopper with your first box!

Hiding behind the pink tissue paper are this months products. Amarya have been really smart with their packaging; only some tissue paper and a few foam pieces, no little bits of paper anywhere to be seen!

WELEDA Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil - £19.95 full sized sample
"Fantastic for tired skin, to nourish and revitalise. Dermatological tests have shown that Pomegranate Body Oil accelerates natural skin renewal by 50% in two weeks. Apply a small amount to your damp skin. Massage in thoroughly until absorbed." I don't really get Weleda's packaging, I always think it looks cheap and dated, but that's just my opinion. I'm a fan of Bio-Oil so I'm keen to try this out.

 BODHI Body Moisturiser - £23.00 full size 250ml, 40ml sample.
"This luxurious range of body creams has just been launched to compliment the fabulous body washes. Leaves your skin velvety soft and wonderfully scented." I received the Ylang-Ylang Incensa Sensual Body Moisturiser and it smells amazingggggggg! Just like an incense I have that has ylang-ylang in it. The other possible moisturisers were Jasmine Falls, Pep Noir & Rosemary Chi. I can't wait to use this and I love the bag it came in! I have a few of them already which are handy for keeping my crystals in.

SANTAVERDE Aloe Vera Cream - £28.00 full size 30ml, 2ml sample.
"A simple yet effective range of face creams that absorb easily, allowing the aloe vera to support your skin's natural regeneration." I'm always on the look out for a new moisturiser so I'm glad one has been included, especially at this price as I probably wouldn't purchase the full sized product unless it worked really well.

REN Glycolactic Skin Renewal Mask - £28.00 full size 50ml, 5ml sample.
"REN make clean products that are free from skin-unfriendly ingredients, allowing you to treat your skin gently whilst ensuring that it's kept in tip-top condition." I assume that the REN sample was random as the info is just about the brand and not the product. The description on the website is "A potent bio active peel mask designed to renew the complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone.
Removes dead skin cells to renew the complexion 
Skin looks brighter, healthier, more radiant 
Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles 
Combats congestion, blackheads and blemishes"
 I'm quite excited to get using a product that costs almost £30 quid, this is why I love beauty boxes!

Overall I'm really pleased with this box and I will definitely try out all the products. A great deal for your money!


  1. I got the Weleda oil in Glossybox few months back. I've just finished it. I enjoyed using it. :)
    The REN mask sounds really promising.


  2. I'm looking forward to see how it compares to Bio-Oil. Yeah, I'm excited to get using the mask :)
