When choosing what would go inside the spring 'Embrace' retreat, we wanted to find products that would make you feel vibrant, glowing and comfortable in your own skin.
The spring season is a time where we clear away the winter cobwebs, literally and metaphorically, and step out of hibernation and back into the world.
We wanted to include goodies that enhance your springtime experience, and give you all of those warm and fuzzy good vibes. We think we did a pretty good job of this!
So without further ado, let's show you the goodness inside the 'Embrace' retreat, and why we thought they’d be perfect...
Retreat Yourself - Hug Mug
We created this peachy Speckled Hug Mug, especially for the spring ‘Embrace’ retreat. We wanted something that you could hold and that would give you the same feelings of having a big cuddle. So we designed the Hug Mug; your most loyal ‘me-time’ companion, crafted into a perfectly imperfect shape with a smooth and soft look and feel. Made to fit snuggly into the palm of your hands, giving you the feelings of a warm and cosy embrace, every time you sit down with a hot drink.
Retreat Yourself - Good Vibes Spritz
Retreat Yourself’s Good Vibes Spritz is a warming body & room spritz, created especially for the spring ‘Embrace’ retreat, and designed to transform your minute into a joyful moment. Made with the mood boosting, stress reducing and relaxation inducing powers of sweet orange, fennel, clove, rosemary and cardamom essential oils, the spray is intended to be used alongside a mood boosting practice, whether it’s as simple as closing your eyes and letting a big smile stretch across your face, or as elaborate as an impromptu dance around the room.
For Sunday People - Retinol, Hyaluronic or Vitamin C Serum
When we started talking to For Sunday People it was truly love at first sight. Apart from the fact that their packaging is gorgeous, their products are truly incredible too. Their naturally derived, vegan formulations have been created by leading skincare experts with YEARS of research. Having thoroughly tried and tested the serums by the team, and based on all of the compliments we all started to receive about our "glowing skin", we knew that their serums would be perfect for the spring 'Embrace' retreat - because we all know that when we look after our skin, we can't help but feel beautiful.
11 Pearls By Unichi - Photo Calming Essence Water
We chose the Phyto Calming Essence Water by 11 Pearls to go in our 'Embrace' retreat because we wanted a product that would revitalise and re-energise your skin, right as we bounce into the warmer months. 11 Pearls Phyto Calming Essence Water is a lightweight, refreshing essence. Powered by antioxidants, this fast-absorbing treatment helps revitalise and re-energise skin’s natural renewal process, activating skin’s ability to retain moisture. The soothing effect improves the overall appearance of the skin, resulting in a soft and supple complexion. That's a yes from us!
Empire Australia - ‘Therapeutic’ Body Scrub
We all know that spring time means time for a spring clean! Literally and metaphorically scrubbing away the cobwebs so that we come out as a fresh and more vibrant version of ourselves. So it made total sense to include a body scrub in this retreat. Empire Australia 'Therapeutic' body scrub is a wonderfully aromatic scrub which leaves your skin soft, smooth and hydrated. It includes essential oils and crunchy, natural sea salt for effective exfoliation of dead skin, leaving you with a radiant glow.
Mindful Food Eros Granola - Love & Vitality
When it comes to self-love, there's no better way to show it than with the nutritious, wholesome food. So when we came across this unique Eros 'Love & Vitality' granola by Mindful Foods, we knew it was perfect. With the combination of pomegranate, ginger and maca root, this delicious granola encourages the movement of love-promoting hormones. Add in the heart opening qualities of rose and vanilla and it's the perfect brekky or snack to help you feel loved and embrace all parts of you.
Grow Haircare - Longer Stronger Stimulating Scalp Scrub
With the body getting a good scrub, we couldn't leave one of the most important parts of our body - our hair and head! Scrubbing your hair and head stimulates the scalp and leaves you feeling energised and fresh. Grow Haircare’s Longer Stronger Stimulating Hair Scrub is formulated with natural sea salt and peppermint oil to effectively eliminate impurities, whilst invigorating and purifying, leaving your scalp balanced and refreshed. It's also vegan, cruelty free, artificial fragrance free, and silicone free - it gets the tick of approval from us!
Well Naturally - No Sugar Added White Chocolate Coated Almonds
Let's be real here, chocolate is the way to the heart. When we started chatting to Well Naturally it was an absolute no brainer to include their white chocolate almonds (with no sugar added of course!). Not only are they gluten free, artificial colours, flavours and preservatives free and sweetened with stevia (instead of sugar), but they are seriously YUM. We knew it was a match made in heaven. The perfect treat as you watch the sun set on a sunny spring day, or to share with loved ones as you curl up on the couch.
Koala Eco - Rosalina & Peppermint Natural Hand Wash
When thinking about products for our spring 'Embrace' retreat, we knew we wanted a beautiful hand wash. Our hands get neglected during the cold winter months, and as we enter spring time and start to clear out the cobwebs, they need a little extra nourishing. This 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly plant-derived formula effortlessly and safely cleanses hands without the need for toxic chemicals. And with Rosalina’s subtle blend of lavender tea tree, together with the freshness of peppermint, you'll find yourself a stress-relieving and anti-inflammatory hand wash. Not only that, but Koala Eco’s Rosalina & Peppermint Hand Wash combines two of nature’s best antiseptics in one powerful, aromatic formula. The perfect spring-time companion.
Natures Commonscents - Natural Goats Milk & Peppermint Oil Soothing Foot Balm
With the activity that the warmer spring months bring, we're often out on our feet more. Sometimes barefoot (if you're like us and live by the beach), and in need of some seriously pampering. When we discussed including a foot balm in the 'Embrace' retreat, we all agreed that nurturing our feet is a true act of self-love, one that we often forget to do. This Natures Commonscents’ soothing Goats Milk Foot Balm, infused with natural peppermint oil, lavender oil and menthol will help to relieve inflammation, and give your feet relaxed and happy vibes.
KOJA Health - Oat Bar
One thing that comes along with the warmer spring months, is being out and about more often. And what do we need when we're out and about? Snacks, of course! When we tried the KOJA health Oat Bars we couldn't believe they were healthy too. Chewy, moist and made with 100% Australian Oats and other simple (but drool-worthy) ingredients, these bars are sure to become your next go-to healthy snack. They're also 100% plant-based, Australian-made and contain 60% less sugar to any other natural oat and breakfast bars on the market. If you haven't tried, them, we suggest you do - immediately.
Beforeyouspeak - Collagen Original Coffee
+ Adrenal Mocha Decaf Coffee
Coffee, coffee, coffee... where would we be without you!? We're sure you can agree with us that coffee is one of those things that just make life that much better. When chatting with Beforeyouspeak we decided we'd add in two different varieties, for the caffeine, and de-caffeinated lovers. There's the Collagen Original Coffee, which will help you to glow from the inside out with it's all-in-one blend - enriched with Marine Collagen, Silica, Camu Camu, Proline & Biotin. All hair, skin and nail-loving ingredients! The Adrenal Mocha Decaf Coffee which can be drunk alongside some chilled out, relaxation time - infused with nine powerful & restful ingredients including Zinc, Ashwagandha and Camu Camu. If you could sleep with a coffee it would be this one! Adrenal is perfect for when it’s time to rest, relax and reset.
