Mbotanicals Mini (M) Box


When this cute little mini box of skincare products arrived I was taken aback as to how cute it was. Coming from a brand known as (M) Botanicals this selection of products is a great idea to give you a welcome introduction to a brand, an opportunity to try some of their natural skin care plus it would make a lovely gift too.

Within the box you get five products and those products are sized so that they last between 2 and 4 weeks. I am a huge fan of sample products and I always take them with me on holiday, nights away or long weekend breaks and to get something that lasts this amount of time is fantastic. The box was simple and understated which I really liked and think it fits in well with the company ethos. The logo which is emblazed across the top of the box again, understated. Inside there is everything you need including all of the products which were individually wrapped in tissue paper and an information card with details about all of the products. The powdered cleansers and oils come stored in good quality glass jars, while the creams were sealed in small metal pots to keep them as fresh as possible.

Inside the Mini Box you will get;

10g Exfoliating Bamboo Cleanser - This for me is best described as being a very gentle yet effective facial cleansing powder and it is designed to revive tired skin. Using a combination of Copaiba balsam, Acai and Andiroba the cleanser will protect the skin from break outs and add much-needed emollients.

It also has the addition of both Bamboo and Kaolin Clay which gently but mechanically exfoliate the skin to not only leave it soft and smooth but also give that clean feeling. Andiroba is an ingredient I haven't come across before but the notes tell me that it has been proven to decrease acne and combined with the anti inflammatory properties of Copaiba and Acai this kaolin rich clay cleanser will brighten and detoxify acne prone skin.
10g Hydrating Beauty Balm - Hydrating beauty balm is a water and preservative free balm and it uses high levels of Rosehip oil – a potent anti-oxidant that repairs, firms and hydrates the skin along with Borage is high in essential fatty acids which support the skins natural healing process and Sea Buckthorn Fruit CO2 extract which is an amazing wound healer, wonderful as an after sun treatment and  it also helps restore prematurely aging skin.

It also smells just incredible and is the kind of product I would love to have a room spray for when I need a bit of a lift.  On the skin, it is luxurious and rich and incredibly delightful to catch the scent of.
10g Daily Rejuvenator - This is described as being a potent targeted moisturiser and it is the perfect natural solution for protecting and keeping mature skin looking great. Using ingredients to plump the skin, revive and rejuvenate you can expect to find:
  • Palmitoyl tripeptide-5 prevents collagen breakdown.
  • Vitamin B3 otherwise known as Niacinamide, a multi-functional superstar,  is proven to help fade hyper-pigmentation and discolouration, improve skin barrier function and gently exfoliate.
  • Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant that draws in moisture, keeping skin plump and youthful.
  • Amino rich emollients of Prickly pear, Rosehip extract and Pumpkin seed oil help improve skin texture, revive and rejuvenate.
  • CoQ10 and Vitamin E acetate are anti-oxidant powerhouses to help defend against free radical damage
Having used the Rejuvenator, what I liked about it was the natural spa like scent and how easily it absorbed into the skin.

I am not too sure that I fit into the 'mature skin' age range just yet, but it definitely did moisturise and hydrate my skin.

5mL Rejuvenating Facial Elixir - Prickly Pear Elixir is described as being a light weight oil that absorbs easily into the skin and in doing it not only nourishes but also tightens pores. Add to that, the use of Squalane helps to create a protective film on the skin as blackseed oil adds amino acids and other vital nutrients.

This lovely Elixir is said to be an oil which is good for mature, oily and combination skin types.
The Final product is a 10g bar of Pink Clay Soap for face and body - This soap is based on red kaolin clay which imparts a rich brick red colour.

What I love about it is the scent as it is scented with Rose Geranium, Lavender, Orange and Patchouli essential oils which give it the most amazing sweet but floral citrus scent which has a hint of earthiness to it as well.
This Mini Box of products is priced at just £15 which you can find here and I would love to hear your thoughts.
