WELCOME TO THE HEALTH & WELLNESS BOX
I hope you love this box. I accept that it's really specific to women over 40 but if you are, it's fantastic and you won't be able to try it anywhere else.
I thought it would help for you to know why I've selected these products as they really are thought through and if you're looking in the market for 40+ products to help you, these are amazing!
I suspect that most of you won't have heard of Nurture Replenish (30ml, £17.99), but they are an incredible brand. There are quite a few skincare brands out there that I bet you haven't heard of that are superb for the 40+ woman. Why haven't you heard of them? Well, some are only sold in high end clinics and just have smaller marketing budgets than the big brands so can't afford the prime time adverts. Nurture Replenish skin care is very high performance and is designed for women who are seeing their collagen decrease in their skin as the years go by.
The range is made by Healthspan (www.healthspan.co.uk), a company that originally started in nutrition and I like that they feel good nutrition is intrinsic to wellbeing. Their Nurture Replenish range isn't organic but all their products contain natural plant oestrogens (phytoestrogens) to help replenish natural hormone levels and tackle skin changes during this time. In other words, it's specific to the peri, during and post menopausal woman and they've really thought about their market.
Bellapierre's Waterproof Gel Eyeliner (full size £16.99) is a must have to update your make up look. Most of us just don't update our make up and continue doing it in the same way, but our eyes seem to get smaller in our heads as the skin around them loses fat. This pencil is soft, natural and should be okay for even the most sensitive eyes to use (but please remember to patch test if you are super sensitive). Apply it on the top waterline of the eye under the lashes to create an almost magically defined eye look. It's much better than black eyeliner as it's almost invisible definition - do try it and let me know how you get on.
Dr Marilyn Glenville's Meno Support Plus tablets (£27.38) are something that you really should try. She absolutely knows her stuff (click HERE to see her full bio) and I've long been an admirer of hers. She actually works in nutrition for women of all ages including pioneering work looking at nutrition and miscarriage, Endometriosis, Cystitis, fybroids, infertility, all sorts, but she kindly has given us a month's worth of her natural supplements to test. They are natural food supplements packed with ingredients she knows helps women during the menopause and there's enough supply here to see if they work for you.
Finally, The Organic Pharmacy Hand Cream (£13.17). Well, all of us like a good hand cream at the bottom of our bag and if we're going to have one this has fabulous ingredients, smells marvellous and is non-greasy. I can't bear greasy hand creams!
I do hope you like it and look forward to your comments.
