Blogging Perks! Rakuten Bonus Box

22 September 2015 1 comment


As bloggers, we spend.. a lot to primp and pamper ourselves, and of course share the worthy products with our readers, so every now and then, it's nice to get a little treat back.

Rakuten, an affiliate network, run a Bonus Box program where they select a number of publishers to review a little package of products from their advertisers, and this quarter, I'm lucky enough to be one of them! (Thank you very much Rakuten!) Definitely relishing the treat, let's see what we've got.



The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay.

Clay and charcoal are some of my best friends, especially since I fell in love with this Ancient Clay. This squidgy tube of pewter tar detoxifies your skin by drawing out the impurities, softening and smoothing. I smother this onto my skin that needs the most help (or just all over..) and leave for 10-15 minutes.  If I can frankly be bothered, I'll moisten it then wrap in cling to aid the benefits. But either way, wash it off and you'll reveal smoother, better skin, I love it! Especially for the incredibly inexpensive price point. It's great for KP too, my upper arms have never looked so smooth.


Origins Clear Improvements Face Mask.

A good clay face mask is my new favourite thing. I'm in love with my Ancient Clay mask (you can check out my full review) and another charcoal-clay mask from Origins, a brand I love, can only be a good thing. Slap this dark sludge-y goodness all over your face and it gets to work at extracting all the impurities from your skin.

Darphin Ideal Resource Serum.

Darphin isn't a brand that I've played with much and in all honesty, a weeny sample isn't enough to proper test out a serum in my eyes! However from what I've seen so far, it's delicious. A lotttt of natural and active ingredients and it's feather light and easily absorbed. Tick tick tick so far. I've noticed it makes my skin lovely and luminous which is a major factor of any serum I invest in, I think it might be making it's way onto my lust list!


Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover.

Waterproof mascara on the daily is a tough ask for any makeup remover and having made the switch to pure, organic oils to remove it, I never thought I'd now choose otherwise. Cliniqie's Take The Day Off is a 2 part makeup remover you shake up to emulsify and it takes off my mascara (and everything else!) like a breeze. This lovely little bottle has gone straight into my travel bag, it's the perfect size with a nice, tight lid.
