My Treat's 'March Sweet Dreams' Box
I can't begin to describe how excited I've been to receive this month's My Treat Box!! Having a good night's sleep is crucial for your mental wellbeing as well as for your body and skin, and I value a decent night's rest. But I do have more than a few nights where I struggle to get to sleep. This is where My Treat's 'March Sweet Dreams' Box comes in and it's full of natural mind and body treats to help you relax and be calm. My Treat offer three different monthly subscriptions; the Body Box, the Body & Underwear Box, and the Mini Box, as well as a variety of one-off boxes featuring popular items from previous boxes. The Body & Underwear Box has just recently been brought by My Treat, which I'm so happy about as their underwear is the most comfortable underwear I've ever worn!!! Today I am reviewing My Treat's 'Body Box' which is $38.95 NZD per month, along with $6 shipping. The March box contains six treats all from My Treat regulars whom subscribers know and love.
1. Eye Compress Patches by Arture
The first product in the 'Sweet Dreams' Box, are these Eye Compress Patches by Arture. Arture is an NZ specialist skincare company that uses natural ingredients to make some of the highest quality skincare products I've ever used. This set of Eye Compress Patches can be used either hot or cold, to relieve puffiness, circles, and tiredness. Using these patches cold will help calm puffy eyes and reduce dark circles, whilst using them hot will provide relief for dry and tired eyes. I tend to get quite hot in the face especially around the eyes, and I like my body and face to feel cool whilst I sleep, so using these eye patches before bed helps cool me down and makes me feel comfortable and relaxed.
2. Hormone Balance Essential Oil Roll On Blend by Sirius Skincare
The second product in this month's My Treat box, is the Hormone Balance Essential Oil Roll On Blend by Auckland based company Sirius Skincare. Sirius Skincare's products are free of compounds that can be found in other natural products which can irritate skin (this is big for me as I have a skin condition which makes my skin super sensitive!). Their products are also made from plant-based ingredients which are sourced responsibly, using local businesses when possible. Sirius Skincare make a varied range of bath and body products, face products, as well as room and linen sprays for your home. The Hormone Balance Roller is a product I need in my life; I've experienced bad cramps all my life and do manage this with the pill, as well as turning into a bit of a monster. This Essential Oil Blend contains Almond Oil, and essential oils of: Rosemary, Peppermint, Lavender, and Clary Sage. I love the scent to this oil, it's very herbaceous and has a slight hint of musk. To use, you should apply the roller on your liver area each morning and night, and you should feel the benefits after a couple of weeks. This is a perfect product to include in the Sweet Dreams Box as all women know, it's tough getting to sleep (sometimes impossible), when you're experiencing bad cramps! I'm excited to incorporate this product into my daily routine, and it's good timing as I have a couple of weeks before my next period, and I'm looking forward to a calmer month.
3. Damage Control Essential Oil Spray by Nudi Point
Next, we have the Damage Control Essential Oil Spray by Takahue Valley based skincare company, Nudi Point. Nudi Point are My Treat regulars, and through My Treat's boxes I've been lucky enough to try their lip butters, essential oil roll-ons, their konjac sponge, and teeth whitener, to name a few. The Damage Control Essential Oil Spray is a new product by Nudi Point and contains Witch Hazel and essential oils of: Eucalyptus, Clary Sage, Clove, Cinnamon, Lavender, Peppermint, and Bergamot. We all get aches and pains in our muscles, and going to bed feeling sore is never fun. I tend to get a stiff neck from spending a lot of time on the computer, and have found that using the Damage Control Spray gives my neck some much needed relief and helps ease the tension! This is an amazing spray to carry around if you have regular problem aches!
4. Lavender Love Soap by Ahhh Cosmetics
Having a hot shower before bed is a good way to relax, hot water can help ease any tension you may have, and what better way to get ready for bed then combining your hot shower with the Lavender Love Soap by Ahhh Cosmetics! The Lavender Love Soap is handcrafted and contains coconut oil for skin hydration and titanium dioxide for exfoliation. Ahhh Cosmetics Soaps are also Paraben and SLS free, with zero plastic packaging #ditchthebottle. I'm always happy when I see soap in a subscription box, and this is a decent slice of soap which will last me more than a few night's!
5. Sweet Dreams Room & Pillow Spray by Sirius Skincare
Here we have a second product by Sirius Skincare, and that's their Sweet Dreams Room & Pillow Spray! This spray contains: Chamomile Hydrosol, as well as essential oils of Lavender and Cedarwood. This is a beautiful smelling, dreamy spray and I'm going to have no trouble falling asleep surrounded by this scent. This is one of my fave items in this month's box and I'm sure every subscriber is going to love spritzing this on their sheets and pillows each night!
6. Lavender & Cedarwood Bon Bon by Linden Leaves
The last item in the box is the Lavender & Cedarwood Bon Bon by the wonderful Linden Leaves. Linden Leaves have a range of Bon Bons featuring their hand creams and body oils. This Bon Bon contains their Nourish & Soothe Lavender & Cedarwood Natural Hand Cream which contains Shea Butter, Vitamin E, and Evening Primrose Oil, and their Absolute Dreams Body Oil which contains Organic Rosehip and Avocado Oils, both in cute mini sizes. Linden Leaves make the best hand creams and I always give them to friends who love them! The Absolute Dreams Body Oil works wonders if you apply it after a hot shower, right before bed.
Verdict: The 'March Sweet Dreams' Box has to be one of my all-time faves from My Treat, with each product in the box made to help you relax and and have a restful, sweet smelling, sleep. Using all of the items in this box, I've found falling asleep and staying asleep easier, and I've been enchanted by all of the beautiful essential oils in these products, such as lavender, clary sage, and cedarwood. This month's box contained $83 NZD worth of products, and subscribers that suffer from sleep problems will appreciate and love everything in this box. You can sign up to the April My Treat box here.
