Happy Monday! I hope everyone’s weeks have started well after a lovely weekend. I have been a bit up and down the past few weeks since getting out of hospital, so I am trying to get back on an even keel this week. I may not be posting as regularly for a little while but am aiming for two posts a week, and am starting to post videos on my YouTube channel again but please bear with me.
I have been mentioning The Mummy Club subscription boxes for a while now (check out my January Favourites and Mother’s Day Gift Guide posts). I first came across The Mummy Club on Instagram and thought the idea was a brilliant one. There are many subscription boxes out there, mainly containing make up and skincare products but I feel like they can be very hit and miss with introducing you to products you may or may not like. I loved this idea as the items contained are pretty dislike-proof and can be used by everyone. I have been writing a lot recently about taking time for yourself as I feel this is important for everyone to do, and I feel like a lot of women and mums, don’t give themselves this time as they can be so busy. This box gives you everything you need to take that time out for a bit each month, whether it be a little every day or some time once a week.
I received my first box in January as a gift and couldn’t wait to get into it. I was delighted at the contents. The box included
- A spacemask
- ‘Sketchy Mama’ by Anna Lewis
- A pack of four Optiat coffee face exfoliating scrubs
- Albus & Flora lip balm
I have been enjoying testing the items out and have found them all useful so far. The spacemask was a huge hit. I had a relaxing bath then got into bed and popped the mask on. It was made of soft cloth and looked really pretty, I almost didn’t want to put it in the bin when I finished with it. The mask heated up on my eyes and the smell was subtle but nice. I enjoyed twenty minutes of relaxing and really zenned out, even with Ste getting out of the shower and starting harassing me. I took my bedtime meds, picked up my book but within ten minutes I was asleep! Ste had to put my book away and turn off my lamp. I’m not sure if it is supposed to help you sleep but it was certainly a welcome side effect for me, as I often struggle to drop off.
I’ve only had a quick flick tbrouth the book but have had a giggle so far at some of the pictures. I’ve also used two of the face scrubs, they are really lovely. The exfoliating beads are small but do the job and as long as you don’t mind quite a strong scent of coffee you will love them!
The lip balm has also had plenty of use as I’ve been really struggling with dry lips and this was just what I needed. I love the packaging of it too, looks great int he handbag.
I was so impressed I just had to sign up. Each box is £18 and p&p is £2.75. you get an email at the end of the month reminding you that your payment will be taken and the date it will go out in case you want to unsubscribe – there is no contract so you can miss a month or unsubscribe at any time. There is also an option to get a mini box which I believe is £11. You can also purchase boxes to send as gifts which I think would be a lovely idea for a mum to be or new mummy, as well as a mum friend in need of a pick me up.
My second box in February was equally as fab and contained
- A spacemask
- Bath Tea
- Bath Salt Soak
- Salted Caramel Marshmallows
- ‘Five Go Parenting’ book
I have also just received my March box but won’t go into what is in that one as I don’t want to spoil the contents for anyone who hasn’t had theirs yet!
Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the contents and the absolutely lovely customer service you receive from them. These products have definitely given me that nudge to make a little more time for myself which I probably wouldn’t normally get if I was expected to go to the shops and actually buy products for this purpose.
If you are interested in signing up, head over to their website and take a look, it is really simple to join and I am sure you will be impressed. Hope you enjoy your boxes as much as I do!
