Total value of box = £62.57.
Ok so there’s a great selection of skincare and makeup products here, with a couple of full sizes, a couple of luxury sample sizes and two bonus sample sachets. Also, I’ve never heard of any of these brands before, so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in!
Starting with the Oxynergy Power Infuse Cushion Foam – this is a full sized bottle of cleanser, from French skin care brand Oxynergy. This is an ultra-smooth, mild yet rich foaming cleanser with amino acids and essential trace elements that’s suitable for all skin types – it also smells amazing! This is definitely a luxury product, and I’m really pleased to find it in this month’s box.
Next the Manna Kadar Beauty Eyeshadow in shade Fantasy – this is described as a 3-in-1 product, acting as a pearlized powder blush, highlighter and eyeshadow. The formula is just like a shimmer eyeshadow, and the shade, well I’ve just had a rather heated discussion with my other half as to what colour this product actually is. To me it’s a warm nude peachy beige – but it’s described as a Nude Blush Pink on the Manna Kadar site, and my other half said it’s pink too – of course they’re both wrong and I’m right 😀 This shade is perfect as an eyeshadow on my pale completion, it would be gorgeous as a highlighter on darker skin tones too.
Next is the PHB Ethical Beauty Anti Ageing Serum – as expected, this serum is designed to combat signs of ageing. It contains essential nutrients, antioxidants and omegas, as well as vitamin rich Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil & Rose to help rejuvenate skin, smooth wrinkles, reduce dark spots and promote a radiant complexion.
The Lucy Annabella Organics Treatment Oil in Orange & Marjoram – is a 100% organic oil that can be used as a daily body moisturiser, nightly on the face, or even as a hair treatment. It contains Juniper, Geranium, Orange and Camomile to create a serene scent designed to lull your senses and envelope you in tranquillity. The exquisite aroma cocoons and supports you, encouraging mindfulness. The treatment Oil also utilises Argan, Avocado and Apricot Oils to infuse skin with antioxidant vitamins to deeply enrich and nourish without leaving a greasy residue.
And lastly the In The Buff Mineral Makeup Loose Powder Highlighter in Sunshine Glitz – now I must admit, the packaging doesn’t look too expensive and because of that I wasn’t expecting too much from this product – well that will teach me to judge a book by its cover. This was actually a really nice shimmery highlighter. Though powder formulas can be a bit messy and the shade Sunshine Glitz was a bit too yellow for my liking – I still really liked the product, and I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a golden / yellowy highlighter.
Overall I think this is a great second box. The brands included are all new to me, the products are all interesting as well as being of a really good quality, and I’m definitely looking forward to the next box!
