This monthly subscription beauty box starts at £13.00 per month (including P&P)
I was very excited to see the design of the box. “Indulge Me” screams pampering, skincare & feeling great about yourself! It’s a very pale pink colour with rose gold detail & this month’ quote inside the box says “Nourish to Flourish” which is pretty simple but nice all the same.
I was initially quite excited when I started picking the items out but then I felt a bit deflated as I put them back in. I’m not sure why but I think I expected a bath bomb or bath salts, a moisturiser would have been good and maybe a universal warm nude lipstick perhaps? I also see they have duplicated one product that was in another beauty box last month… I’ll tell you how I truly feel about this later…
SKIMONO INTENSE NOURISHMENT HAND MASK: RRP £9.99
I mean, I understand why they put this in. It’s Autumn, dry skin etc. I would have preferred a body moisturiser or even a hand cream. Hand glove masks though?! I’m not convinced. I have hand creams that are fantastic, this is one application and I don’t think it’s THAT much better than a rich & creamy hand cream that you can apply as and when you need it. I have chosen to set this aside for my Nan for Christmas as it’s just not something I’m interested in using for myself.
MONUSKIN FIJI FIRMING FACIAL OIL: (Travel Size)
It’s no secret I bloody LOVE this stuff! It’s perfect for my combination skin. The oils balance out my own natural oil & my dry patches are no more. I do think it’s a bit naughty to be using a product that was in Glossybox last month. It feels a bit desperate for them to have to use it the following month. I’m NOT complaining, honest, I really love this product. For those who don’t though, they’ve possibly got it twice.
LANCER, THE METHOD POLISH: (Travel Size)
This one is pretty exciting. They claim that Victoria Beckham’s ‘go to’ favourite skincare product. That’s promising! I love VB & trust her with her favourites when she looks so good. This is 1 product out of 3 for a formulated daily skincare routine by Dr Lancer. It’s an everyday exfoliating facial treatment that claims to resurface your skin & even out its tone.
CIATE WONDERWAND MASCARA: (Travel Size)
I like Ciate Nail varnishes so I was excited to receive this. The wand isn’t my preferred shape but I gave it a go anyway. It’s a good product, not one I’m likely to buy in full but I was happy to receive it anyway. It probably won’t replace my Loreal Baby Roll mascara any time soon though.
BEAN BODY COFFEE BEAN & COCONUT SCRUB: (Travel Size)
I was very happy to receive this! I suffer with Psoriasis so when I noticed that it’s not only cruelty free & vegan, it contains no parabens! Hooray! It smells divine & it feels pretty awesome to apply too.
MODELCO INSTANT RADIANCE CONCEALER: RRP £12.99
I like this product & it’s exclusive to Look Fantastic. It’s my colour which is a good start I suppose! It conceals well and the formula is good. It creases quite a bit so does need setting powder. I don’t mind that too much.
OVERALL: I’m not overly excited, this was a little bit underwhelming… it didn’t leave me wanting to go take off all my make up & jump in the bath to try it all. Unfortunately, I am thinking about cancelling this box and replacing it with another…
Any suggestions for new beauty boxes I can try?
