Introducing the Spring Twenty Twenty One Welcome to Wellness bundle from bellabox! Since I began a partnership with them last month, I couldn’t resist shopping the rest of the range. I decided to splurge a little and treat myself to a seasonal box every three months for the next year. A new tradition in the making I hope! Elevating my health and wellbeing with products that target mind, body and soul, starting from within, is priority and what I endeavour to achieve.
First off, I received the Forty Fathoms skin regenerator renewal essence from Unichi Wellness, valued at fifty four dollars. When evenly massaged across the face, this serum rejuvenates skin for a glowing and youthful appearance before and after sun exposure. It’s concentrated with a light texture that deeply penetrates skin barriers to reduce wrinkles and boost radiance. Star ingredients include Squalane, Majestem, Maritech Bright and more. As a bonus, it’s organic and suitable for sensitive skin. The science behind the serum is focused in the powerful Fucus Vesiculosus extract that serves to regenerate cells and activate the body’s natural healing and restorative capabilities.
Next is the 11 Pearls SPF 50+ sunscreen lotion which I now have in surplus after receiving initially in my September bellabox- you can find an in depth review of all the items in my bundle here. I envision lots of trips to inner city beaches and a holiday on the horizon so I imagine this will come in handy! Oh, to be by the sea. I imagine the cool, salty air creating a natural wave in my hair, the warm grains of sand enveloping me as I lay down and soak up the sun’s rays. I’m slowly building a swimsuit collection and with that the expectation of much water play!
Then come the Tasti superfood wholefood balls with quinoa and cacao raspberry. They use high quality ingredients like sunflower seed butter, hazelnut, puffed chickpea, maca root powder and more to create these all natural, vegan protein balls. They are perfectly proportioned for handbag snacking on the go, lunchboxes, a picnic basket treat or to enjoy with a cuppa tea. I have no doubt I’ll enjoy these immensely as a pick me up snack come late afternoon when my energy levels begin dipping and dinner is still hours away.
Speaking of hot drinks, Nerada black tea is my next beverage of choice. They are proudly Australian grown and pesticide free, travelling from leaf to your cup in as little as a month depending on the season. In this short span of time, the tea is harvested, fermented, dried, packed into reusable woven bags and sent from Atherton Tablelands in far North Queensland. The terrain there is high altitude, rich volcanic soils and ample rainfall creating the conditions under which Nerada’s unique, aromatic and undeniably full bodied blend comes to be. Their black tea rivals the best in the world and for good reason. Imagine being so dedicated that you hire a professional team of tea tasters to sample the finished product!
The Wrinkles Schminkles infusefast decolletage sheet mask works wonders on mature skin. Hyaluronic acid provides intense hydration, snail extracts smooths, Vitamin C brightens and Vitamin B regenerates. This decolletage sheet mask targets not only facial skin but the neck which can show rapid signs of ageing in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, loose and crepey skin, pigmentation and undesirable texture. The mask is made of an advanced biocellulose technology material wise and fits like a second skin. This allows for a quick infusion of ingredients. A single use will reveal firmer, younger looking skin. This sheet mask is also eco friendly and biodegradable, making it easy on the environment. Collagen production is enhanced, free radicals are fought and skin retains its elasticity.
Wellgrove immune support olive leaf extract capsules are the latest edition to my daily supplement regimen. I’m used to taking a women’s multivitamin come breakfast time. These vitamins contain active olive leaf antioxidants and help to reduce free radicals formed in the body. They are traditionally used in Western Herbal medicine and relieve symptoms of common colds and flu whilst supporting your general immune system health. Their olive trees are grown on the groves of Boundary Bend, a place where fertile soil raises the healthiest and most premium trees. I’ve felt more run down lately and increasingly lethargic with flare ups of a pre existing medical condition. I have enlarged lymph nodes in my neck that activate and bulge out when I’m stressed or compromised and this can affect my breathing and lead to a sore throat. I’m hoping a sustained wellness routine will counteract this.
Cel microstem thickening shampoo and conditioner is a cruelty free haircare brand based in America. They utilise a patented stem cell technology that improves the condition of thinning hair by encouraging follicle recovery. A simple scalp massage could be the way to fuller and thicker hair. This cutting edge formula uses powerful biotin infusions to prevent shedding and excess oil build up on the scalp. It’s suitable for all hair types and won’t weigh your locks down or make them limp. Olive Fruit Oil and protein extracts nourish hair and sooth any scalp irritation. Ingredients are all natural, sulfate, paraben free, hypoallergenic and safe for colour and chemically treated hair.
While there was only a sample of the Unichi Rosa Prima collagen powder included in this bundle, I’ve been curious as to how it could benefit younger skin. I’ve seen models, influencers, dieticians and more in their mid twenties taking collagen with smoothies. I imagine it works preventatively and would keep already youthful skin with great natural collagen production in even better shape for longer. After their success with Rose Collagen Gummies, Unichi developed a Rose flavoured marine powder that is naturally flavoured with real rose petals to improve the appearance, firmness and hydration of skin. It’s Australian made and gluten free.
Most exciting of all is the Switch Nutrition coffee sachets that are so raved about! They come in three great tasting flavours- Naked Espresso, Espresso and Cafe Mocha and have long lasting benefits. They are vegan and keto friendly with no added lactose or sugar. Switch Coffee utilises nootropic botanicals, coconut oil, acacia fibre, turmeric and organic mushrooms combined with carefully selected Colombian single origin Arabica Coffee Beans for a premium taste and experience.
