Aveda Experience Box : The British Beauty Blogger Edit

So, we’re back! This time, instead of the multi-brand Dream Boxes, I’ve decided to focus on single brands or brand ‘families’ so that you can really get to know them in a more in-depth way. It seems to me that this is the future of the beauty box (definitely the future for my boxes) and that consumers want to find brands that they can understand and relate to in a bigger way than one single item would allow. After all, you are the ultimate brand testers. Please, please use the #BBBAvedaBox – BBB box days are so busy on social media and it helps us to make sure any questions are properly answered and any feedback is seen. As always, Latest In Beauty is my partner on this box.

Aveda is a hair brand that’s been on my radar since the word go – if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that if I do go for a proper hair pamper, it’s to the Covent Garden Aveda salon. I see the same stylist – Zak – who once offered to give me a fire-eating lesson! The hidden talents of hairdressers – I’m sure that’s a blog post in the making! I also once met the person responsible for naming the Aveda eye shadow colours – I was so envious! One of my very first Aveda posts on BBB was in 2009 (Caribbean Therapy), and I’ve used and loved many of their products both for hair and body.

The BBB/Aveda Experience Box is really all about finding the right hair products for you. We’ve managed to keep these boxes at £20 (inc P&P) but if you do the maths you’ll see that their value is over four times what you pay. The reason for that is so as many of you as possible can try the brand if you would like to.

It’s important to ensure that you order the box that is for your hair type: one of Aveda’s strongest points is prescriptive hair treatments with active ingredients that will truly make a difference. So, after working closely with Aveda experts, for this box, I have three splits, each curated to target and revitalise. I’m also following Aveda’s strong earth friendly policy: the box is 100% recyclable (even the ink) and we’ve used no extra, unnecessary packaging.

I hope you enjoy experiencing next level hair care with conscience (and a cup of delicious herbal tea!). In each box you will find four retail size products, 3 Comforting Tea bags and a £10 voucher redeemable against any £30 or over spend so you can replenish your supplies with Aveda’s compliments.

Damaged/Dry Hair Aveda Experience Box

This is the range for you if your hair is brittle and dry, and you find it difficult to get any moisture into it. Typically, dry hair feels coarse with brittle ends, is difficult to shine, and frizzes easily, weakened by heat styling or chemical processes. Inside each box is:

Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo, 250ml: A gentle sulphate free formula made with babassu and coconut based cleanser that uses quinoa protein to repair.

Damage Remedy Restructuring Conditioner, 200ml:  Again, with quinoa protein to repair hair damage, sandalwood and barley provide smoothing and shine.

Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair, 25ml: Gentle soy derived oils detangle, while wheat proteins protect from heat damaged in an organic essential oil aromatic formula.

Aveda Shampure Hand & Body Wash 50ml: A beautiful wash infused with 25 pure flower and plant essences in sulphate free, protective formula.

Aveda Comforting Tea x 3: Peppermint & Liquorice Root is soothing and calming.
