Selfish Mother X Space NK Skincare & Beauty Collab – Review

Selfish Mother X Space NK

When the news of the Selfish Mother X Space NK skincare & beauty collab hit my inbox, I was a tad excited. An inspiring woman, running a great business empowering women, collaborating with one of my favourite shopping haunts and proceeds going to charity to boot? What’s not to love?
Have a read on to find out what I thought of the goodies this set contains.

Selfish Mother who?

A quick back story for anyone who doesn’t know. Founded by Molly Gunn, Selfish Mother began as a blogzine where all mothers could (and can) share their stories on motherhood openingly before growing into a successful business The FMLY Store where her classic MOTHER tee launched raising money for female survivors of war. She’s pretty epic.
Female empowerment is what you’ll find here along with a careful outlook for the environment in the brand’s environmental ethos.

The collab

An exciting skincare and haircare beauty bag with a gorgeous lipstick included, this set is described as ‘must have beauty treats’ and contains:

Laid surrounding the the bottle on a white table are fresh daffodils. In the background are two small pots of herbs, the pots are grey the herbs a vivid green. These pots are blurred as to not take away focus from the dry shampoo.
Living Proof – Perfect Hair Day dry shampoo
The ‘Perfect Hair day’ by Living Proof who claim that this dry shampoo cleans and refreshes hair without leaving it feeling chalky and they’re not wrong. It is a multi-award winning, lightweight spray that isn’t heavily scented and does what it claims.
It’s unlike any other I’ve tried, for that reason I’ve already bought another bottle.

Selfish Mother Makeup Bag

The pros and cons

Product type
You’re not getting brand spanking new products that have just hit the shop floor in this kit. Therefore, if you’re a die hard skincare shopper, you’re probably not going to be wowed, and may have tried some of these items before.
Product size
While they are not all full sized products (as with most beauty sets) they are large enough to trial the products more than adequately and find out if they are items you’d like to consider adding to your daily routine. Consequently they are perfect for your handbag, overnight stays and travelling.
Usability
Furthermore there are products here you may not consider purchasing normally which is a nice way to try out new items and different brands. It is certainly a nice way to experiment with new brands and get a feel for them and you definitely get your money’s worth!
The set is very user friendly, there are not any products here that are actives (acids, retinols etc), all can be used across the board.

 

My final thoughts

As a skincare beauty bag I feel this warrants it’s price of £50.00 and has a decent selection of goodies to offer from a variety of brands and price points. It would make a lovely gift if you’re feeling generous, or to treat yourself. The Selfish Mother X Space NK collab is limited edition so if you’re interested you know what to do!
To top it off you’re supporting the charity Refuge while pampering, and that’s pretty cool.
