I love using organic and natural products. The phrase, “don’t put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t put in your mouth,” comes to mind. Although this isn’t exactly realistic, I do enjoy clean green products. This is where the Vertue Beauty Box comes in, it’s a clean, green and cruelty-free health and beauty subscription box which I won.
Unlike some of the other subscription boxes this isn’t a monthly box, its a bimonthly box. They have a great social responsibility stance and give 10% of annual profits to environmental, health and food charities and use eco-friendly packaging and suppliers. They feature award-winning and new independent brands.
The Konjac Sponge Purifying Green Tea Puff Sponge £8.99
This is a Korean Beauty’s must-have and I can see why, I loved it straight after the first use. Antioxidant-rich green tea has been blended into the sponges which protects the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals as well as improving elasticity. It fitted perfectly in the palm my hand and is was so easy to use, I just added my cleanser and a little water to exfoliate my skin. It can be used with or without a cleanser and is also suitable around the delicate eye area. My skin felt fresh, clean and fantastic afterwards and I can honestly say this product is a must as part of any cleansing routine. There are other sponges in the range and on my wishlist. Buy now

I am not a coffee drinker but this invigorating scrub is divine. It removed my dead skin cells and helped boost circulation.

Another favourite from the box is this natural luxurious charcoal soap which is made from a unique combination of 7 nourishing oils and butters. It is delicately scented with tea tree and lavender pure essential oils.

As it is rich in vitamins and minerals it is perfect for use on the face and body. I have fallen in love with this brand and hope I get a chance to try some of their other products soon. Buy now
