WIN: a £45 Natural Beauty Gift Box from A.S APOTHECARY

Amanda Saurin grows flowers in East Sussex that are used to make heavenly oils, creams, butters and balms. To win a set of A.S APOTHECARY products, read on for the competition details…

We interviewed Amanda Saurin, founder of A.S APOTHECARY, back in November and revelled in her tales of an outdoorsy childhood on the rugged Scottish coast, collecting petals and leaves for her potions. She still makes potions but is now something of an expert… with a team of helpers.

In conjunction with The Early Hour, A.S APOTHECARY are offering a wonderful set of all-natural products for you to use yourself, or give to a friend/lover/family member… think post-Christmas pampering, or early Valentine’s Day gift.

In Amanda’s words…
“This little box of delight is a perfect introduction to the A.S APOTHECARY collection and ideal as a special treat for yourself. #3, #5 and #6 are all represented in the box to offer a journey through our scent and key product collection.”

The set includes:
Cleansing Oil #5 – 5ml
Mini Crochet Face Cloth
Lip Balm #6 Coffee, unrefined Cocoa and Orange – full size
Face Cream #3 – deluxe sample
Body Butter #6 – deluxe sample

Cleansing Oil #5 is made with a combination of essential oils that clean, soothe and revitalise. It will soften and condition the skin leaving it bright and well nourished.

The #1 Cleansing Cloth is hand crocheted in Lewes, Sussex by our friend Anne Seaton.

Face Cream #3 has been created to hydrate, brighten and soften the skin, to comfort and soothe body and spirit. When applied to the skin, it is rapidly absorbed and non-greasy.

Body Butter #6 helps to rehydrate your skin leaving it supple, balanced and moisturised. The Rejuvenating and Vibrant Body Butter will rehydrate and soften your skin and lift your spirits with its bright, sensuous scent of lavender, grapefruit and sandalwood.

Lip Balm #6 has excellent anti-inflammatory, healing properties and a scrumptious taste of cocoa, coffee and orange.”
