The self-care beauty box that provides mental health support too
February 1st 2019 / 0 comment
It’s designed to help you to unwind and with every box bought Feelunique will donate money to mental health charity Mind. Here’s why this Treat Yourself edit will help you sleep better, reduce stress and save you money
The weather’s cold, the evenings are dark and hibernation seems particularly appealing. Short of chartering a flight to the Maldives, you crave TLC and need to catch a break, which is where this purpose designed beauty box comes in.
The Feelunique Treat Yourself Edit, £30, contains a curated mix of chill-inducing beauty and wellbeing products, with the lot coming to a combined worth of £90. Not only does it bring a luxe candle, award-winning aromatherapy sleep spray and no fewer than 30 caffeine infused energising eye masks to your bathroom shelf, but £3 from every box bought will be donated to mental health charity Mind to provide advice and support to anyone suffering from a mental health issue. The box was designed by illustrator and self-care advocate Stacie Swift, who has also created a ‘5 ways to wellbeing’ guide in partnership with Mind that you’ll find within the Treat Yourself collection. It contains practical tips to give your mood a boost, from the simple action of taking five minutes to find out someone’s really doing to buying a plant for your workplace to give you something green to look at. Check Stacie out on Instagram for more daily wellbeing-focused art while you peruse the contents of the box…
