Welcome to Spring! April’s Pip Box is all about essentials and beauty treats to help you look and feel your best as we head towards the summer months.
With lockdown ending and pubs, shops, and outdoor activities reopening (in England) we know lots of our subscribers are raring to get back out there. After a year of lockdown, a little TLC to help you look and feel your best is always appreciated.
Inside April’s Pip Box we have £62 worth of products and some exciting new brands; MONUSKIN, Q+A, Dominic Paul and Polaar as well as a beloved favourite, Foamie.
MonuSkin’s unique formulations utilise the special properties of pure, natural, ingredients using plants, herbs, minerals and essential oils. They harness the remarkable recuperative power of nature to soother, nurture and protect your skin.
The Exfoliating Enzyme inside April’s Pip Box is the perfect alternative to a scrub for a deep thorough exfoliation. The Papaya fruit enzyme creates a skincare reaction to unglue the bonds between dead skin cells which causes them to slough off. This clever and gentle chemical process does this without disrupting your skins PH, making it perfect for sensitive skin.
The Exfoliating Enzyme tightens pores and revives skin texture, leaving a complexion that is both dewy and glowing. Use this product 1-2 times per week after cleansing and toning. Use 1-3 pumps, avoiding the eye and lip area. Massage in and leave for 5-10 minutes and remove with warm water.
Polaar’s story began in 1976 just off the Icelandic coast. Since the beginning of Polaar, in 2004, products have been formulated without alcohol, parabens or mineral oils. The brand’s ethical philosophy is based on continuity. In addition to protecting our skin, Polaar intends to be inspired by what nature has caused without ever damaging it which is why all of their products are 100% cruelty-free.

FOAMIE launched in Germany in 2018 to re-invent the once-loved family favourite, the bar of soap. They quickly found success thanks to their striking designs, tongue-in-cheek communications, and innovative product design. They are now on a mission to “think outside the bottle” and re-invent the way you think about your bathroom routine. Creating plant-friendly solutions that function as you would expect, smell incredible and leave the last effect on your skin and hair.
Previously featured in our February box FOAMIE are back again with their Shake Your Coconuts Conditioner Bar. A follow-on product from the Shake Your Coconuts Shampoo Bar it contains wheat proteins and coconut for strong, supple hair and additional shine. Your hair will be left with the exotic scent of coconut all day long.
Unlike traditional conditioners, FOAMIE Conditioner Bars don’t contain any nasty ingredients such as added fats and butters. These ingredients give your hair short term shine but do not work to build long-term healthy hair. Over time your FOAMIE Conditioner Bar will work to rebalance the natural pH of your hair, carefully closing your hair cuticle and locking in moisture.
