Aura Mirabilis is at the epicentre of Roger & Gallet’s first skincare range, as originally it was the monks who created the powerful natural Aura Mirabilis which was used as a remedy for many topical ailments. Roger & Gallet have created this unique skincare range from the inspiration of the original natural formula (which they own the patent for) and the 18 distilled officinal plants. These natural plants are the key to the ancient and very secret restorative recipe and the blend of Aura Mirabilis within the new skincare range help to nourish and heal the skin naturally.

Roger & Gallet are well known for their incredible fragrances and body care products with so much care and attention going into using traditional distillation methods. This results in beautifully pure scents and if you have previously owned any products you will know first hand how natural the fragrances are. Established in Paris in 1862 they have a loyal global following and it’s no wonder, as each product and range have been carefully curated by traditional French perfumers. With their new launch of the Aura Mirabilis skincare range set to become firm favourites with their no-nonsense restorative natural formulas I was thrilled to try the clarifying Beauty Vinegar and the nourishing Legendary Cream.

It’s been a busy week and with our youngest back to school and the HelloFresh delivery of a tasty Family Box was perfect timing to change mealtimes up a little and give the family some new dishes to try. We have been trying out some made-for-families food boxes from HelloFresh and one of my favourites was this tasty Chicken Satay Kebabs recipe from the Family Box. Easy to follow and make and even more fun when I had two keen helpers in the kitchen who were happy to chop, taste and cook the meal with me. Since our introduction to HelloFresh we have tried some varied tasty family meals, all come with fresh ingredients and a recipe card to follow along and the only component you need to add is water as everything is supplied to make each recipe. We made Beef Roly Polys Mexican Style  Oven baked Greek Meatballs and Spiced Chicken With Coconut Rice from the Family Box already and we have found it very easy and user friendly to follow and very tasty too. The Spiced Chicken was a little too spicy for the kids (although the adults loved it!) but it’s all trial and error and it was good for us to try something out of the kids comfort zone, even if it was a little spicy.
