At the start of this month, I was privileged to attend the Wellness Awards at BAFTA as deputy editor of i the stylist. To read all my coverage click: The Pure Package Wellness Awards. I received the most amazing goody bag from them, full of healthy and natural products. Here are my favourites:
KINN Organic Body Wash
KINN is an organic lifestyle brand, which is a family company established in the spring of 2017. They create non-toxic, plant-based products using heritage aromatherapy family recipes. The ingredients are vegan, eco-friendly (packaging is fully recyclable) and ethnically sourced.
I adore brands who care about the environment and place such a high emphasis on good ingredients. This body wash has a really fresh smell – possibly due to the flower oils and leaf juice powder. Incredibly gentle and 98.6% natural.
Little Butterfly London
Exclusively made in England, dermatologist and Vegetarian Society approved, The Little Butterfly London is for people with sensitive skin; hypoallergenic, not tested on animals and free from mineral oil, paraffin, parabens, silicons and artificial fragrances. It’s a multi-award winning mother and baby skincare brand.
Firstly, the smell again is incredible and I would actually love to bottle it in a room spray. It contains mulberry, passionflower and pomegranate extract. I have quite oily skin which is usually sensitive, and so I wasn’t sure what results this moisturiser would have. My sample was small, however from a week of using, my face didn’t feel tight or dry (sometimes dehydrated) and no additional shine.
Better You Magnesium Flakes Original Foot Soak
This is the only product unopened from my goody bag. I have already worked with Better You a couple of times for i the stylist and have received previously to review. I’m currently half-way through their magnesium oil and towards the end of my other flakes.
I can’t say enough about how much I love this company. Without taking any form of a supplement, you can take in magnesium simply by using a beauty product. They have won so many awards and work with amazing organisations – including universities, and soon the NHS on a clinical study. There is so much researched involved, and they are 100% natural.
They use the purest and most easily absorbed form of magnesium known. I adore their Magensium body butter and lotion. If you do want to give this brand a try, I would suggest alongside their foot and body soak flakes, which you can pour in the bath.
VITL Vitamin D3
VITL offer personal vitamin packs and bespoke content, partnering with doctors, scientists and nutrition experts from leading organisations around the world. All products are 100% free of harmful bulking agents and contain sustainably sourced ingredients.
Meeting the woman behind the brand, I felt impressed with her in-depth knowledge of various vitamins. I was super happy when she told me that she had a vitamin product in the goody bag.
Since my diet turned vegan, most people go on about B12 and protein, but I have always wanted to test a vitamin D supplement. Partly due to all the media reports. This one is a softgel, easy to swallow and contains a small amount of sunflower oil to maximise absorption.
It’s £5.95 for a month’s intake which I think is good value. It’s hard to tell the exact effect it’s having (I am also taking Omega 3) but I do feel more awake and I have noticed that I’m having far more good skin and hair days. I also appreciate the tiny packaging unlike most supplements.

- Strawberry Peppersmith Dental Pastilles – just delicious
- Clearspring Organic Japanese Matcha Shot – first moment of trying Matcha
Let me know what your thoughts are on these brands from my goody bag. How important is a natural product to you and does it matter how long a company is established before buying?
