Naturisimo Clean Colour Discovery Box Review


About the box
Naturismo is an online ethical beauty company, who sell ethical beauty brands and occasionally do 'Discovery Boxes' centred around a certain theme. This particular box is the Clean Colour Discovery Box.

Price
This box is as usual a one off, with no subscription required- just pay a flat price of £13.95, with free worldwide delivery.

What I got
I was excited to finally see another Discovery Box available from Naturismo after so long, so as soon as it arrived I was rummaging through to see what was inside. You do get an overview beforehand but I try not to spoil it too much for myself!



The first item was this extremely miniature sample of the Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi Use Blush Stain in Sultry (0.1g sample). This is the teeniest sample I've ever seen, it looks like it's just been shaved off a full stick of the stuff, but a little goes a long way so I think you'd still get at least three or four uses from it. It's soft and glossy in texture, slightly sticky so not something I'd choose to use as a blush or on my eyes like suggested but I would certainly use it on my lips. It comes in lots of lovely shades including Classic shades, Stain shades and Radiant shades.



Next is this Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream (sample size, 5ml). This is made in a 'universal shade' although it's obviously not- those with very pale skin and with much darker skin would not be able to use this at all. I wish companies wouldn't label things universal when it's not. To be fair, when it's blended in you can't see it very well but then it begs the question as to why it's tinted at all? Balance Me is a British based, natural skincare brand whose products are free from things such as parabens, microbeads and artificial fragrances.


This is the Madara Organic Skincare Multi Action Micellar Water (full size, 100ml, £14.00). This micellar water is designed for all skin types, dissolves makeup, cleanses, tones and soothes. It is also 99% natural, vegan friendly and certified organic. I tried this on a swatch of lipstick on the back of my hand and it really did dissolve the makeup straight away, and left my skin feeling soft and smooth, which I think is aided by the addition of hyaluronic acid to the formulation. I am definitely adding this to my stash.


I love this brand- this is the Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Oil (sample, 29.5ml). As this is a cleansing oil I think this would go really well with the micellar water as a double cleanse regime. This product contains coconut and argan oils, and is suitable for normal to dry skin, as well as being 100% natural.



Another tinted cream product, this is the REN Satin Perfection BB Cream (sample, 3ml). This is meant to be suitable for light to medium skin tones, though it's certainly too dark for me so I will pass it on to my mum. You will probably get a couple of applications as again, a little goes a long way with this sample. It has UVA and UVB protection with SPF 15, and smooths and mattifies skin.



This is one of my favourite items from the box- the Juice Beauty Liquid Lip in Gwyneth. I think the shade, a rich berry, is named this because Juice Beauty's creative director of makeup is actually Gwyneth Paltrow. It comes out a smooth and non sticky formula. The Phyto Pigments Liquid Lip comes in 8 shades curated by Gwyneth herself and has a moisturising and conditioning effect.



Finally, my top item from the box is this dazzling Bellapierre Eyeshadow in Champagne (full size, £12.99). I couldn't find this on the Naturisimo website, but looking on the Bellapierre website I think it's actually one of their Shimmer Powder Eyeshadows. It is extremely shimmery, and a lovely icy champagne shade. I can't wait to try this out on my sister (she is my eyeshadow guinea pig!) I think you could probably use a tiny bit as a highlighter as well if you wanted to be daring.

Final thoughts
While this Discovery Box didn't thrill me as much as the last one (take a look at my review here), it was fun to unbox. I think they could have been a bit more generous with the samples for the price. However, this hasn't put me off Naturisimo Discovery Boxes as they are always so much fun to see what the latest theme is and unbox them.

This box is currently sold out, but keep an eye on the Naturisimo Instagram feed here as they often update when they are going to release a new one. You can also find their website here.
