(This post is in collaboration with melanin boxes)
I have finally gotten around to doing the product photography for all the wonders inside the Melanin box, I have had the opportunity to receive one of these boxes and have a look what is inside, plus I have a treat for you!
I wrote a blog post recently about what melanin boxes stand for, which you can read here if you didn’t get to catch it, but a quick sum up is that the box is full of products that work for anyone and everyone. Whatever you skin colour or gender or even your understanding of beauty products, this is the box for you all. Their website offers tutorials to every single product with both videos and diagrams so everyone can understand and all products work for any skin type. I think this is a wonderful thing as we forget that when we get these beauty product boxes, the colours or types of products just don’t work for everyone which means a large amount of people don’t get the chance to have the wonderful surprise of a beauty box, which is just not fair.
So what products were in this box?
Top Left: Monty’s glow peeling mask // Bottom Left: Berså body oil // Top right: Wella salt hairspray // Bottom right: Ziaya goat milk day cream.
Top Left: Picaut hydra lagoon overnight mask // Bottom Left: Ziaia face mask and Biore self-heating mask // Top right: Real Techniques miracle complexion makeup sponge // Bottom right: Scratch nails silver nail varnish.
I found it a very interesting mix of products, it allowed you to try products that I knew about like the salt hair spray or the makeup sponge but then it also offered more unusual products like the Monty’s glowing peeling mask which is basically a bag of powder that you mix yourself into a face mask which gives it a home made feel and is a lot more natural and eco as it doesn’t need the chemicals to keep the mask wet inside the packaging and the Berså body oil which is a fairtrade products and looks very homemade.
The products very obviously work for all skin and hair types which allows everyone to enjoy all the products but it also uses more Vegan, Organic, sustainable products which for someone like me who is not interested about putting any chemicals onto my skin and wants to have the most earth friendly products possible, these products do wonders for me too.
All of these products were Organic, Vegan, sustainable or fairtrade.
I really think this is a great box and opportunity for all of you beauty lovers to try something new and be able to experience products that will absolutely work for you and it is a great price too!
