It’s time for the 2020 Autumn Moi-Meme unboxing! This seasons box is focused on the theme of ‘Sweet Dreams’ and has been filled with a variety of products that will help to give the best nights sleep ever. We all know that self-care is important in our lives but it has become even more important with the current pandemic situation that has been and is still going on this year… it’s created anxiety, exhaustion, restlessness and a whole mix of other emotions too so, this box has been set up to help give some TLC, unwind and calm the mind and wake up feeling rested and rejuvenated after a good nights sleep. Something that we all are probably in need off… The theme for this season is spot on for sure.
MONUSKIN MONUSpa Papaya & Ginger Bath Salts (£20)
This is the perfect product to unwind and relax in a warming bath with. These are Papaya & Ginger bath salts that are infused with; Sea salt, Lactic Acid, Papaya Extract, Linseed Extract and Oat Flour which combined helps to improve the appearance of skins imperfections, replenishes skins elasticity, moisturises and soothes any irritation. This is in a big bottle with 300ml worth of product inside and retails for £20. I’m really looking forward to relaxing in a warming bath with this as the smell is so wonderful.
AVANT Deluxe Hyaluronic Acid Vivifying Face & Eye Night Cream (£98)
I’ve received Avant skincare products before in other subscription boxes and Avant never disappoints, it is a luxurious brand that does wonders for your skin. This is their Deluxe Hyaluronic Acid Vivifying Face & Eye Cream which retails for a huge £98 for 50ml!! This face and eye cream will help to keep skin radiant and moisturised aswell as improving the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin tone and enlarged pores. It contains; Hyaluronic Acid (which is a super hydrating ingredient perfect for this time of year now the weather is so much colder), Maris Aqua (which is packed with calcium, potassium and magnesium that helps to balance oil and moisture levels in the skin) and Vitamin B3 (which helps to strengthen the skins surface and improve it’s appearance.) What a treat to receive in this box and I’m looking forward to letting my skin seep up all of it’s fabulous benefits.
CATHERINE COLEBROOK Cute Hot Water Bottle (£15)
When I saw this I was over the moon as I have been needing a new small hot water bottle. They are extremely useful to have lying around the house and really give so much comfort in the colder months… honestly I couldn’t believe it when I saw a hot water bottle has been included. This hot water bottle is by the brand Catherine Colebrook and is worth £15, the cover is made from a padded grey soft linen and luckily includes the actual hot water bottle too.
I think it’s super lovely as Moi-Meme have even got these hot water bottle covers personalised with our first initials on them, that’s extremely thoughtful and that’s exactly why I love Moi-Meme boxes as they are attentive and caring to their subscribers. It’s a lovely size being smaller as you can even pop it in your coat for that little bit of extra warmth when you go out…which is what I will be doing on my winter dog walks for sure! Really delighted with this item.
LOLA’S APOTHECARY Sweet Lullaby Perfume Oil Deluxe Roll On (£23)
Lola’s Apothecary!!! One of my favourite brands, and I am bursting with excitement as this is the third time over the years that they have been included in Moi-Meme boxes. This is their Sweet Lullaby Perfume Oil which smells like the best scent in the world! The fragrance is of Vanilla, Sweet Orange with some Patchouli and Ylang Ylang too. There is such a sweetness and softness about the scent and literally smells like ‘a hug in a bottle.’ It’s presented in the most gorgeous packaging and the perfume oil is in a stunning glass bottle with a roller ball top for application.
I have been applying this daily before bed since I received and it really has helped calm my mind and settles me into a more relaxing deep sleep. I will be purchasing this again for sure when I run out of this product! It retails for £23 usually.
MOI-MEME 22mm Silk Pillow Cover (£35)
Moi-Meme must have read my Christmas Wish List as a silk pillowcase was an item that I was hoping for…so that can be checked off now *Squeals in excitment.* This silk pillowcase is from their own range and it retails for £35. Sleeping on silk if you didn’t know offers incredible benefits compared to sleeping on a standard cotton pillowcase. It is incredibly kind to the hair and helps to prevent split ends and morning frizz due to the smooth surface of the silk allowing hair to glide across the fabric if tossing and turning during sleep and it helps to lessen the chances of creases in the face and fine lines due to the softness of the silk. Silk contains only natural fibres and is naturally hypoallergenic too which means overall you get less chemical exposure than other fabrics.
I’m impressed that Moi-Meme have chosen a good high quality silk of 22 momme grade as lower grade silk/satin substitutes won’t give the same benefits. There are two colours available; Pink or Dark Grey. I got given the pink shade which I adore as it’s my favourite pale pink colour. This pillowcase isn’t exactly a full pillowcase though it’s more like a large piece of silk with ties at the back which gives flexibility for wrapping the silk around any size of pillow. This is a good idea however, it’ll be interesting to see if this slips off or not if it’s just being held on by ties. Hopefully it’ll stay on well during the night and won’t slip around.
LSW LONDON The Sleep Well Collection Of Guided Meditations (£10)
In the box there was a postcard with instructions on how to download (with a personal code) a set of guided meditations for sleep by LSW London. The instructions were easy to follow and I’ve managed to download on my laptop and phone (for quicker convenience.) I love this idea as it’s a guided meditation collection to set you up for a deep and restful sleep. The Sleep Well collection itself is worth £10. There is an introduction and 4 different guided meditations for sleep. The brand is founded by Lili Sinclair-Williams who is a practitioner of Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic programming. I’m guessing she is the voice behind the guided meditations and if so she has the most soothing and calming voice which is perfect for the meditations. I’ve already tried one out and I loved it and literally ended up sleeping like a baby, they are nice and long too ranging from 25 mins to 45 mins. I think this is a perfect idea for this box as it really is the cherry on top for getting a very good and restful sleep.
Overall, this box is easily my favourite that Moi-Meme have curated. It is just the definition of sleep perfection, every single one of these products included fits in well with the sweet dreams theme and there is such a variety in here. To include luxury brands like Lola’s Apothecary and Avant is just an absolute treat and the cute hot water bottle and silk pillowcase are exactly what I was looking for… I needed a new small hot water bottle and the silk pillowcase was on my Christmas Wish List. I am just blown away by the products for this season and they have definitely set the standards high for their Winter box. The total worth of this box adds up to a HUGE £201!!! Which is an incredible value. Absolutely thrilled to pieces with this box.
A Little Bit More Information… Moi-Meme include products from unique brands and every box they dispatch has a lovely variety of items included. They are slightly different from other subscription boxes as they offer an exchange option for products that have different choices (eg: Colour, design, fragrance etc…) so if your not happy with the item they picked out for you, you can get your hands on the one you wanted instead. Which is a great addition to a subscription box!
If you love the contents of this box and their previous boxes I highly recommend subscribing to them, their boxes are always worth the money. The Moi Meme Luxe box (quarterly box) retails for £54.95 and with every box you always get roughly double the amount you paid for. Or you could opt for their Moi-Meme Monthly box which retails for £22.95. Or perhaps you’ll treat yourself to both!
