I was delighted when Beauty Expert got in touch and offered me the chance to sample and review their latest beauty box, a hand-picked selection of 6 of the best pampering must-haves. And if that’s not exciting enough, they also offered a fabulous 15% discount for all my followers – hurrah!

What’s in the Beauty Expert Box?
This Works is the much-loved British beauty brand founded by former Vogue Beauty Director, Kathy Phillips. Their Sleep range has gained a cult following, along with winning stacks of awards and accolades. The newest arrival to the range, I love this Sleep Together Calming Spray (£27.50) which is packed full of herbs that help to promote sleep including lavender, chamomile, and vetivert.
I mist it over my pillows and bed linen regularly and it really does help me get a more restful night’s sleep, as well as making me feel generally calmer. It’s also perfect for diffusing emotional tension in your home – definitely needed in lockdown! Simply spritz it around to restore a sense of calm.
Looking for a lightweight, hydrating night-time skin treat? Rodial’s Pink Diamond Magic Gel Night is a super-lightweight formulation that absorbs quickly and easily to leave skin feeling smooth and hydrated. It also smells great and you really only need to use a small amount to treat your face and neck. Infused with skin-smoothing Retinol and brightening Vitamin C, it helps to firm, tone, and boost-radiance while you sleep. And as this ‘dream cream’ normally retails at £75, purchasing this Beauty Box is worth it for Magic Gel Night alone!
One of the best-loved Greek beauty brands, I love Korres’ products. Made with the purest, hand-picked ingredients native to Greece, it was founded in 1996 by pharmacologist Giorgos Korres who started his career working at Athens’ oldest homeopathic pharmacy. A recent addition to the range, their White Pine Meno-Reverse Volumizing Serum-in-Moisturizer (£54) wowed the Good Housekeeping team of testers which is always a good sign!
Specially designed for menopausal women, it has been formulated to help increase plumpness. Us ladies experiencing the menopause know that collagen loss comes hand-in-hand with reduced hormone levels, often leaving skin feeling dehydrated and looking a bit saggy! So I’ll be ordering this serum-in-moisturiser by the bucket load, please!
Not only is it a great moisturiser, but it also has a built-in serum giving you the benefit of 2 products for the price of one! A blend of natural ingredients including Soybean Fibre, Black Oak, White Pine, and Artichoke extract – clinically proven to restore the skin’s volume and reduce sagging. Your skin will feel smoother, look brighter and plumper with regular use!
I love discovering new ranges, so I was thrilled to find products from cult Danish skincare brand, Ecooking in my Beauty Box. It was founded by Tina Søgaard, who started making her own products around her own kitchen table! Literally – hence the name Ecooking! Having experienced a personal skin crisis, Tina began to blend up restorative products using natural and organic ingredients that would be suitable for sensitive, troubled skins like her own.
This vegan-friendly facial scrub (£23) gently exfoliates and brightens your skin. Made with finely-ground almond seeds, it’s so gentle that it can be used on the most sensitive skins. It’s also rich in organic almond and sunflower oils, and moisturizing shea butter to exfoliate without leaving skin dry. My skin feels baby soft after using this scrub. Definitely a real beauty discovery!
A firm favourite with beauty buffs across the world, an indulgent French beauty brand, Nuxe, never disappoints. As with all Nuxe products, this honey-rich Lip Balm (£10) looks and smells as appealing as it sounds! Lovely to apply before bedtime to prevent chapping, it’s also a great lip primer. Smooth it on under lipstick to keep lips moist and to prevent lipstick from drying out.
This luxurious Cream Cleanser (£36) transforms into an oil once it’s emulsified with warm water. So easy to use, it dissolves make-up instantly to leave skin feeling clean, soft, and smooth without drying it out. With a pampering blend of Sweet Almond, Coconut, and Soybean oils, it’s also rich in Vitamin E, so no wonder it’s super-hydrating.

Although Nuxe and Gatineau products are not tested on animals in Europe or the US, their products are sold in mainland China who do require most brands to test on animals. However, there are some brands such as Neal’s Yard Therapies, who are working with the Chinese to use alternative methods. I’m hoping that this pandemic will encourage the world to challenge China on the way it treats animals, whether it’s selling them in markets or using them to test cosmetics. Fingers crossed!
