Clean Decoded by SpaceNK x Caroline Hirons
The Clean Decoded by SpaceNK x Caroline Hirons box has arrived and orange segments, peas in their pods, coconut and lemons make up the cover of this box of wonders!
So whats it all about? Well in Caroline’s own words “It’s all part of SpaceNK’s Clean Decoded campaign which breaksdown what it means to be clean, whether its looking at sourcing and sustainability, or what vegan beauty really stands for. In partnering with Space NK I’m excited to embrace transparency; I want to help decode the labels you often hear about and highlight the products that work to deliver what they say they will, while still being clean. For me, clean beauty is great, but it’s got to be about the science too; the products that i’ve chosen in the box are ‘clean’; but more importantly, they deliver results.”
The box which contains 9 products is a very clever way of helping and keeping people informed when it comes to chosing beauty products. Consequently, they are products that work and are ‘clean’ products to buy.

The box is available from SPACE NK, however, the products can be purchased separately, so, if you are looking for new serums, oils, SPF, masks and creams to stock up on, look no further. Therfore, I highly recommend any of the above.
