August's Degustabox | The Surprise Food Subscription (£7 Off Promo Code)

Can you believe it's almost September already? This Summer has been a bit of a letdown weather wise. I'm sick of drizzly days and hot humid sticky nights, and excited for Autumn colours, cinnamon candles, berry lipsticks and cosy jumpers. Anyway, my August Degustabox has just arrived and its packed full of delicious goodies and new brands that I'm sure you can't wait to find out more about. 

August's Degustabox | The Surprise Food Subscription (£7 Off Promo Code)

Degustabox* is a monthly food box that is delivered straight to your door and contains a selection of innovative food products, discount codes, recipe cards and other fun stuff for only £12.99 including delivery. You can subscribe at any time and I even have a £7 off discount code for first-time subscribers at the end of this post - that's only £5.99 for your first box! July's box contained products from Rowntrees, Rejuvenation Water, Jordans and Seabrooks, which you can read more about here. Let's take a look at this month's box...


First up is a box of Lime & Ginger Green Tea from Clipper (£1.59). The fairtrade tea is light, refreshing and slightly more flavoursome than regular green tea thanks to the twist of citrus. It makes a nice change from my usual morning cuppa and smells incredibly uplifting. Also inside was a bottle of Fentimans Sparkling Lime & Jasmine carbonated soft drink. Fentimans is a brand known for its traditional values and natural botanically brewed beverages. This blend of Hyssop, Lime Flower and Juniper Berries is the perfect balance between bitter and sweet.

Feel Unique Pick 'n' Mix | Beauty Samples Delivered Straight to Your Door

As a serial beauty box subscriber and all round makeup and skincare hoarder, it's no surprise that I'm a huge fan of Feel Unique's new sample service. As a frequent Feel Unique shopper, I was surprised to find out about the Pick 'n' Mix service not from a promotional ad or email, but from one of my favourite beauty blogs: hannahheartss.co.uk. In fact, even after I had read about it, I still struggled to find the link online. This could be Feel Unique's best-kept secret. 

Feel Unique Pick 'n' Mix | Beauty Samples Delivered Straight to Your Door

Each month Feel Unique customers can select 5 samples from brands such as Benefit, Caudalie, Lancome and Nuxe. Samples range from one-use face mask sachets, tiny perfume vials and micellar water pouches. The service is 'free', but you do have to pay a £3.95 handling and shipping fee, however, you receive a gift voucher which you can redeem on a future purchase for the full amount. You are also limited to one Pick 'n' Mix sample selection per person, per month.

Kokoso Baby | Natural & Organic Coconut Oil for Baby-Soft Babies + Giveaway

Penelope is now 5 weeks old; I can't believe how quickly time is passing! Bath time with a newborn can be a bit of a military operation. There's so much to take into consideration. Is the water too hot/cold? Have I put enough water in? Is she ever going to stop crying? Has she just peed in the bath? And are the products I'm using gentle enough for her sensitive skin? 

Kokoso Baby | Natural & Organic Coconut Oil for Baby-Soft Babies + Giveaway

Like most babies, Penny has a touch of baby acne as well as a dry scalp and lots of folds and creases that are a bit tender so choosing bath and skin care products gentle enough for her sensitive skin was an absolute must. Kokoso Baby* was created by a mum who had a similar experience with her little girl. She was worried about the effects of introducing unnecessary chemicals to her daughters already dry, delicate skin and made it her mission to find the perfect 100% natural and organic solution. She discovered a high quality, organic raw coconut oil from a family-run farm in Thailand with amazing natural nutrients and created Kokoso Baby, a skincare product pure enough for both mum and baby.

August's Natural Skincare & Beauty Wishlist with Naturisimo

August's Natural Skincare & Beauty Wishlist with Naturisimo
As many of you know, I am a huge fan of several natural skincare and cosmetics brands such as Bee Good (I use their Honey & Propolis Cream Cleanser daily), Botanicals, SkinSincere, Living Nature, Buff Natural Skincare and Lippy Girl, just to name a few. The beliefs and ethics of 'natural' beauty companies often vary but usually they share the same basic principle; creating formulas free from unnecessary chemicals, instead choosing to harness the power of plants. They are also usually cruelty-free (but surprisingly not always), contain sustainable and/or organic ingredients and use recyclable packaging. I'm always on the look out for new, innovative products that tick at least a few of these boxes and Naturisimo is always my first destination for premium natural beauty and wellbeing treats. Here's just a few products that have made their way onto my luxury natural skincare and cosmetics wishlist this month...
