Hello hello! This week, a VERY exciting package arrived in the post for me, courtesy of Social Network Solutions – a company committed to helping influencers and brands unite. It’s kind of like a Love Island re-coupling, except way less dramatic and certainly less raunchy. In this blog post, I thought I’d unbox the beautiful hamper of goodies, and share with you what was inside! Let me kick off by saying an absolutely huge thank you to all of the incredible, very generous, brands who kindly gifted me these products – I’m so excited to use them all – and to Social Network Solutions for matching us up! So, without further ado, let’s get cracking…
The cornerstone to a great day… the perfect shave! Thank you to the lovely people over at Cornerstone who kindly sent me this beautiful box filled with a full shaving kit. You really notice the difference using a super high-quality razor and shaving gel, and these items really are the gift that keeps on giving. The razor itself has a stunning chrome finish, and includes a precision trimmer blade – the brand’s newest and most impressive design yet! This is a montly subscription box service, so you NEVER have to worry about going out and buying razors ever again… they come straight to you! Head to their website now for £10 off your first order!
Hawkins and Brimble
Firstly – OH MY GOD LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING. Hawkins and Brimble are an authentically British men’s grooming brand, established in London. Their products are naturally produced barber grade tonics, perfect for the modern man. They’ve kindly sent me a body wash, conditioner and shampoo, which I like so much that I’ve already ordered more items from their collection from their website! This is a really cool, natural, and high-quality brand you should definitely check out!
Charles Farris is a luxury candle and reed diffuser brand, available in both Heal’s and John Lewis. This beeswax candle is composed of warm cloves and light ginger mixed with the freshness of sweet tobacco and mint tea, and has been making my Uni room smell UH-MAZING. It’s encased in a dark textured glass and burns for up to 50 hours!
Brighton Beard Co.
BRIGHTON REPRESENT! As you may or may not know, I recently moved to Durham, and so these products from Brighton Beard Co. are a lovely reminder of my home in the South! The packaging and branding of these products is really cool, and I love the nautical style. Personally, I (unfortunately) don’t have a beard or moustache – so I’ll have to share with my flatmates and give a proper review soon!
I can’t BELIEVE I didn’t know about this incredible brand before working with SNS (I guess that’s the beauty of their ethic) but, trust me, I’m already obsessed. Tied Together make sure nothing is ever odd, with their matching tie, pocket-square, and sock gift sets. I was kindly sent this really lovely baby blue set, which feels incredibly high-quality and luxurious. This would be the PERFECT Christmas present, and the packaging is absolutely spot on. I’m also a huge fan of their logo – an ampersand created using a tie! Overall, there’s nothing not to love about this brand, and I can’t wait to rock this dream combo to my next University formal dinner on Wednesday!
Pro Teeth Whitening – a brand committed to helping you find your perfect smile with their charcoal powder teeth whitening kit, which is 100% natural and vegan friendly! This apparently removes stains and discolourations from your teeth, so I’m super excited to give it a go!
Swole Panda – co-founded by Oliver Slacke – a Kings College London Geography student – this brand seeks to maintain sustainable development with their incredible bamboo socks… yes, BAMBOO SOCKS! These high-quality and incredibly cosy socks are not only good for your feet, but for the environment too!
Adam Revolution – a luxury skincare brand who have very kindly sent me a hair-care treatment to make my locks luscious! Love it!
