It's that time again when all of us beauty addicts receive our beauty boxes! Although I am not always 100% happy with the contents, I always can't wait to glance inside!
This month I'm very happy with my goodies. The box includes 2 full sized products, 3 sample sized products and a £20 gift card to spend at Best Secret, which is a members-only online fashion shop. Some subscribers received 3 full sized products so, in this instance, I'm a bit miffed.
Lollipops Make up Eye Pencil – Full Size RRP £11.14
This is a black retractable eye liner. The formula appears to be very creamy. Almost too creamy to last all day, so for me it works best when I set it with dark matte eyeshadow. On the waterline it does last a little while, but I have to reapply it throughout the day otherwise it looks patchy.
Burt’s Bees Lip Shine – Full Size 14g RRP £6.99
Believe it or not, but I've never tried the Burt's Bees products until now. This lip gloss is 100% natural and is enriched with apricot wax. It is not sticky, and has a rather thin consistency, which means that you have to reapply it a few times through the day. The finish is very glossy, the smell is fruity and the taste is sweet. Overall, this gloss will keep your lips hydrated and healthy looking during the cold winter months.
H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment – Sample Size 8ml
I absolutely love the fact that the formula of this treatment is oil free. If your skin feels dry and dehydrated, then be sure to give this little guy a shot! It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and fills surface lines with moisture. It also contains Vitamins A and E. Unfortunately, the sample size is tiny, so from this amount alone is difficult to see true benefits of this product. However, in the future, I may consider purchasing the full size version.
Monu Skincare Refining Capri Facial Oil - Sample Size 30ml
Monu skincare products are not new to me, I've already tried their SPA range and own a Monu body oil which I love. This facial oil is specifically designed for oily or spot-prone skin. If used on a regular basis, your skin will look refreshed and revitalised.
This product contains natural citrus oils which have an antibacterial action, grape seed oil which helps to repair broken capillaries, and Camphor which has antiseptic properties.
Until recently I wasn't enjoying very oily creams and oil based products, as they all seem to sit very heavily on my face. I absolutely hated touching my skin and having that greasy feeling. In the last few weeks, I have come across a few products that are considered to be oils, but are totally not oily when applied. Monu facial oil is one of them. It sinks into the skin very fast and provides tonnes of moisture! The fragrance of this oil is slightly citrussy and zingy which is great too.
OGX Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner - Sample Size 88.7ml
This product is new to me, and my daughter has already set her sights on using this conditioner to match her shampoo from the same range. This conditioner contains precious blend of Argan Oil of Morocco which instantly penetrates the hair shaft, restoring shine and softness while strengthening your hair and making it silky smooth. This renewing formula is free of sulfates and parabens, and is safe for colour-treated hair which is great.
Overall, I'm very happy with this box. I can safely say that I will be using all of the products sent to me this month (unless my 11-year-old nicks that Burt's Bees lipgloss that she has been eyeing up for the last couple of days!!)
