SoukSouk September 2014.

 SoukSouk September 2014.
My SoukSouk box came yesterday. Here are my initial thoughts on this month's contents. I am very pleased with the brand selections, but feel it is a very sample heavy box this month. Having said that I like all of my products and will use them all, I am just not blown away.
 I am really pleased to find two samples by The Earth Works Cosmetics. There is a 10g sample of their Virgin Coconut & Lime Body Butter and their Grapefruit Facial Exfoliator. I have tried a couple of their products recently and loved them. This is definitely a brand I want to explore further. The citrus fragrances of both of these suits my taste perfectly. I tried the body butter last night and can confirm it is wonderful. I am looking forward to using these.
The next item is a full sized lip balm by Hurraw. These come in a huge assortment of fragrances, with mine being the Earl Grey. I have seen these on lots of blogs and they always get such good reviews.  The balms are suitable for vegans and contain certified organic ingredients. I am very impressed with mine. It is very rich and moisturising, but manages to feel ever so light on application. I can feel a new obsession forming.
A 10g sample Tangerine & Jojoba Whipped Shea Body Butter by Pure Thoughts. I haven't tried this yet, but it smells gorgeous. Pure thoughts are another brand that I love. They make such good quality products at affordable prices. I know I will enjoy using this. 
A 6g sample of OMG Serum by LJ's Natural Solutions. This is another product I am thrilled to receive. I love her Very Indulgent Organic Face Oil and Scratchy Balm, so have very high hopes for this. Expect a full review shortly.
The last item is a sachet of hand cream by Speick Natural. I hadn't come across this natural brand before. The hand cream contains Speick plant extract which I hadn't heard of either. The hand cream itself is fantastic. It is light and silky and made my hands baby soft. I am very tempted to buy the full size of this.

  3. I agree with you Karen. A nice box but not "wow". I am happy that I got a tinted lip balm though otherwise it would have been even more "meh" for me as I have enough lip balms aha! So happy I got to try TEWC though, used the grapefruit exfoliator this morning & its a little bit scratchy but does a great job! Skin was super smooth after :)

  4. I didn't realise that some of the lip balms were tinted. I think most of us feel the same x

  7. My thoughts this month were nice but not wow. I love TEWC and I guess sample sizes are handy for travel and I'm never one to turn down a lip balm, especially if it's Hurraw x
