Darkspots is a subscription box inspired by the struggles that mental health can bring. After seeing it pop up multiple times on my Twitter feed I was too intrigued not to grab one.
I received February's box which included;
Self-Care Fortune Tellers
Stationery Selection (Pencils & Erasers)
Hug in a Bottle - 10ml Pulse Point Essence from BeauxAroma RRP £6.99
Heart Shaped Plaque
Chocolate Heart Shaped Lolly
My favourites were definitely the 'Hug in a Bottle' which smells SO beautiful (everybody knows I'm a sucker for essential oils) and the Dark Spot itself - which provided me with a message that I really needed and still need at this moment. I'm a firm believer in fate, so thank Darkspots for sending me this message.
Darkspots is a monthly subscription box that costs £15.00 per month (including delivery) which is a very reasonable price in comparison to many subscription boxes that I have come across, and it delivers at the beginning of each month.
Self-Care is something I'm really trying to amp up on right now as my work life is starting up again. I often forget about active self-care and think that staying in bed for hours on end will cure my minds struggles. This box is a thoughtful reminder to take care of ourselves with helpful cues along the way.
It was created by Liam Thompson, a 20 year old advocate for mental health and self-care. Through his own emotional struggles with depression he created this business, have a read of his story here.
I think it's an absolutely fantastic product and would recommend anybody struggling with their mental health (or looking for a pick me up!) to get hold of one of these boxes - you are able to grab a one-off box or subscribe!
