The subscription beauty box industry is booming. The idea is that you subscribe and then each month you receive a box full of new sample, travel and full size beauty products to ‘try before you buy’. While you can’t choose what’s in the box, you are profiled at the start to make sure your preferences are taken into account.
It’s a brilliant idea for beauty junkies who want the latest products and brands out there.
And now there is a specialist subscription beauty box especially for the pregnant ladies and mums out there.
My Beauty Bundle was started by brother and sister team Kevin, a sales and marketing professional and Hannah, a journalist after a lightbulb moment just before Kevin became a dad to twins Louie and Lexie (now two).
Hannah says: “It was actually Kevin’s wife, Melissa that became the inspiration for My Beauty Bundle.
“When she was pregnant she used to often talk about needing to feel pampered. So every month Kevin began making her a little bundle of goodies including chocolate, lip glosses, anything that would make her feel special. As you can imagine, being pregnant with twins and running a business from home (she runs Fit4mum, a mummy fitness company) was a handful.
“She told her friends what Kevin had done for her and they ALL said ‘I wish I could have been treated each month!’
“Those that already had children also commented that they needed it even more after becoming a parent.
That was when the penny dropped! I spend most of my time in Los Angeles as a journalist for the UK press and was already a member of a subscription beauty box over there. I just thought, ‘why not do the same for pregnant women and new mums?'”
Despite living across the pond Kevin and Hannah worked together to discover what natural products were out there that would be safe for mums-to-be to use and that you wouldn’t be able to pick up everywhere.
Every brand they use is 100% natural and organic, including Weleda, Green Baby and Little Me Organics.
Now Hannah is a mother too – to a 4 month old baby girl, Henley – and she gets the ‘need to be pampered’ even more!
It’s a great idea for a friend who is just about to pop, or even a mum who just needs spoiling.
And MMM have teamed up with My Beauty Bundle to offer ONE reader a three-month subscription absolutely free.
