My Treat's March 'Made For You' Body Box
The March Body Box from My Treat is called the 'Made For You' Box. This month's range of beautiful, natural products, are made by local NZ brands, and chosen just for you. As always, we have a range of different products, from a drink, to jewellery, to face, and body products. We have returning fave brands along with a new local brand, My Boutique Treat! Today I am reviewing My Treat's 'Body Box' which is $38.95 NZD per month, along with $6 shipping. The March 'Made For You' Box contains six, full-size beauty products.
My Treat's monthly magazine that comes with each box has had a bit of a revamp and is full of bright, vibrant pages.
1. Porcelain Brightening Serum by Linden Leaves
First up, we have a new product, the Porcelain Brightening Serum by Linden Leaves. Linden Leaves are one of my favourite NZ skincare brands, as they make a large range of products that are cruelty-free, and are made with natural ingredients. Linden Leaves are a natural cosmetics company, certified by BioGro and NATRUE, and they ensure that they support sustainable and ethical business principles, as well as supporting low carbon footprint practices. The Porcelain Brightening Serum contains interesting ingredients such as: daisy flower, which naturally whitens dark pigmentation; mulberry and liquorice, which brightens the skin; and organic white tea, which is high in antioxidants and helps minimise signs of ageing. After cleansing and toning, I then applied the Porcelain Brightening Serum, before moisturising. The bottle has a pump for easy dispersing, and the serum itself is creamy, yet light, and has a soft floral fragrance. I'm hoping to see my skin look brighter after a few weeks of using this serum.
2. Silver Sparrow Earrings
Featuring for a second time in My Treat's boxes is Silver Sparrow, an NZ-based jewellery company that curates contemporary and fun pieces. These bright red, dangly earrings will add a pop of colour to any outfit and are the perfect size! Check out Silver Sparrow's site as they have a range of different pieces that come in classic gold and silver, as well as fun colours.
3. By Nature's Hydrating Body Lotion
Next up, we have this large, 500g bottle of Hydrating Body Lotion from a My Treat regular, By Nature. The Hydrating Body Lotion contains key ingredients such as: Pomegranate, which is high in antioxidants and stimulates collagen; and Argan Oil, to soften and moisturise your skin. My Treat has come to the rescue and saved the day again, as I was nearly out of body lotion! I'm loving this affordable body lotion, as its non-greasy and smells amazing.
4. Premium Vodka, Sparkling Water, Raspberry & Pomegranate Drink by green room vodka
Here we have a a delicious drink made by Tauranga based company, green room vodka. green room's drinks are made with a blend of NZ made, triple distilled vodka, a small amount of sugar, and carbonated water, and natural fruit flavours. I usually stick to just beer but I really enjoyed this drink, it's refreshing, light, slightly tangy, and fruity, and I liked how the vodka didn't overpower the flavours of raspberry and pomegranate. green room vodka's have made the perfect summer drink and I would definitely buy their range.
Price: $27.99 for a 10-pack
5. Nova, By Nature's Universal Hemp Balm
Next, in My Treat's 'Made for You' box is a Universal Hemp Balm by Tauranga based skincare company, Nova, By Nature, who hand make natural, cruelty-free, body products. I'm loving the smell and feel of this moisturising Hemp Balm as you can really smell the hemp seed oil. The Universal Hemp Balm contains: coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, tea tree oil, and hemp seed oil. The hemp used in this balm is handcrafted in NZ by Hemp Farm New Zealand. This Hemp Balm has multiple uses and can be used for: itching, chaffing, dry skin, irritation, inflammation, and minor cuts.
6. My Boutique Treat's Exfoliating Soap
The last item in this month's box is a beautiful Ocean Breeze & Pumice Exfoliating Soap by a new, featuring brand, My Boutique Treat! My Boutique Treat are based in Blenheim, Marlborough, and make products such as: aromatherapy, candles, soy melts, bath and shower products, and balms and salves. This one is my fave item in the March box as it's soap and I can never get enough of soap, it's exfoliating, and it has the most beautiful ocean scent. This soap contains shea butter, fragrance, colour, and ground pumice for a moisturising and gently exfoliating wash.
