What’s in the box & why?
Vegan Leather Notebook, RRP £7
Journaling can help you process your emotions and overcome the mental challenges of chemotherapy. Keeping a diary aids in keeping track of how you feel or have felt at different stages during treatment, which can help you manage future expectations and be aware of any negative and positive changes in your progress.
Chemotherapy sucks the moisture and essential nutrients from the skin, making it dry, flaky, and rough. Ere Perez’s Papaya SOS Marmalade is a thick multi-purpose, nourishing balm that heals, soothes, and protects the skin, making it perfect for super dry bits like lips, cuticles, and nipples or anywhere that needs a boost of moisture and a bit of extra care.
Make Skincare’s Body Rejuvenate is made with a blend of argan oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and aloe vera extract to soften and restore the skin’s moisture. This toxin-free rose-scented body moisturiser can soothe skin inflammation and discomfort whilst relieving itchy and irritated skin that often comes with chemotherapy.
Nausea is one of the most common side effects of cancer treatment. So we specially selected Hottea Mama’s Morning Rescue Tea, initially made for morning sickness relief. Its blend of natural ingredients like whole leaves of lemon verbena, lemon balm, African mint, and lemongrass combined with ginger root make for a caffeine-free soothing cuppa that is ideal for reducing nausea.
Green Tea Konjac Sponge, RRP £9.99
Not only is dry, flaky skin uncomfortable, it is also prone to damage and infections during chemotherapy as the immune system is weakened. One of the best ways to avoid this is by changing how you cleanse your skin. This Konjac Sponge, made with antioxidant-rich, anti-ageing green tea, gently but effectively cleanses the skin, reducing or eliminating the need for harsh soaps that could make the skin even more sensitive and cause irritation.
