Ok so I’m going to start with the Nails Inc polish, as this really caught my eye! The shade Soho Place is just beautiful – I love greens and blues on my nails so this definitely gets a thumbs up from me! It also has a gel effect finish so it gives a super shiny, ‘salon’ finish to your nails which I love.
The Dr Organic Bioactive Skincare Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-Plasma Mud Mask (what a mouthful) caught my eye next, because I’m a big fan of masks and I haven’t heard of this brand before. This is a detoxifying mask that penetrates deep into the skin to remove excess oil and impurities whilst stimulating new cell regeneration. I’ve just tried this mask and my skin is now feeling super clean and fresh!
Next is the Malin & Goetz mini set, which includes their Grapefruit Face Cleanser (10ml), Vitamin E Face Moisturiser (10ml) and Lip Moisturiser (5ml) I haven’t had a chance to try the face products out yet, but I can tell you the cleanser smells lovely! The Lip Moisturiser though, I absolutely love! I’m forever getting dry lips and I pretty much have lip balms coming out of my ears after collecting so many of them. I’ve only used this Lip Moisturiser a couple of times so far but I can confidently say it’s one of my all time favourites already – possibly my actual favourite! Seriously, if you suffer with dry lips, you need this product. Also, a full sized Lip Moisturiser is only £10 from Space NK – take a look and you may notice everyone that’s left a review has given this product 5 stars!
On the subject of lip balms, there’s also a rather nice Carmex Moisture Plus Tinted Lip Balm in the box, this is handy if you like a hint of colour but aren’t keen on a full on lipstick. This will definitely be added to my makeup bag!
Next up is the Co Lab Dry Shampoo in Paris. This apparently has a ‘floral fragrance’ – I can’t quite put my finger on it but there’s something really quite masculine about this scent, it smells like a man’s deodorant to me! If the fragrance doesn’t deter you, the mini 50ml bottle is the perfect size to throw in your handbag.
Keeping with the theme of hair, there’s also a new Fudge Urban Spray In Hair Colour in Violet Haze in the box. This is the spray in / wash out type of hair colour, so it won’t permanently dye your hair. I’ve just sprayed this in my husbands dark brown hair, and he has a nice lilac streak now! 😀
The Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection SPF30 Sun Lotion is another fantastic product – the cream sinks into the skin leaving no residue, and the best bit? It smells like HOLIDAY! This is seriously one of the best smelling sun lotions I’ve ever tried. I’ll be dreaming of tropical climes tonight after inhaling this!
And lastly the MUA products, considering they’re cheap as chips, they’re actually not too bad at all! The eyeshadow palette contains some pretty bright colours so it won’t be to everyone’s taste, but it’s a great and inexpensive way to start dabbling with colour, and the Mega Volume Mascara again wasn’t too bad, it didn’t give my stumpy lashes the best volume ever, but it could have been a lot worse.
Ok so over all this really is a pretty awesome box! I’m so impressed with the range and quality of the contents, at only £17.95 it’s is a complete bargain! Grab one now while you can!
