February Beauty Box!

Helloo all,

This post may seem a little random as I haven't actually updated about Beauty Boxes since November! I have still been receiving them but boring life priorities like studying have got in the way of me updating on all the goodies (they have all been fab, I'm sure there are hundreds of reviews on blogspot of Dec and Jan if you fancy a peek). But here we go, I am back on the productive train and here is a little information on what is available in this month's edition..

February Beauty Box 2012
  • Elemis Lime and Ginger Hand and Body Wash - This sampler is a pretty generous 100ml, I was pleased with this one.. I have an Elemis sample given to me by a spa and it's teeny - I'm surprised they offer samples this size! For the full 300ml whack it will set you back £18.40. I've heard the occasional rave review about Elemis body washes, so perhaps worth the rather steep price tag.
  •  Philip Kingsley Elasticizer - I've never heard of a post shampoo treatment before (am I being dim here?) so I'm excited to give this one a go. Again, this 40ml isn't to be sniffed at.. the full product isn't even double that at 75ml and will cost you £12.25. A nice little bargain I think.
  •  Decleor Phytopeel Face Peel Cream - Yikes, the name of this makes me a little terrified for my sensitive skin. I am a big fan of Decleor though and have used a few of their products from the same Aroma Cleanse line. They have always been soothing and never caused me any irritation - fingers crossed for the same results here! The sampler is a bit of a weeny 15ml, but not bad considering the full sized 50ml tube is £23.40.
  •  Nuxe Hulle Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil - I have absolutely no idea of this brand, so all I can go by is the description on feelunique's website. According to that you can mix this oil in with your foundation for a dewy finish (a tad bizarre but will have to try that), apply directly onto skin, in your hair, in your bath... I assume it's suitable for everything but your eyeballs so seems like a good all-rounder. Another thumbs up is that this oil is suitable for all skin types, even for little ones past the age of 36 months - so ideal for mums! The sample I've received is 10ml and for a 50ml bottle you'll be paying £17.00.
  •  Leighton Denny High Performance Colour - I really like this sample, it's a lovely gunmetal grey nail varnish called 'Steel Appeal' but I've noticed others have received different colours so I guess it is a bit of a lucky dip. Might do a NOTD when I try this one out! The sample is 4.5ml and for a 12ml bottle it will cost you £11.00.

So that's everything included in the box, bar one men's perfume sample from Jean Paul Gautier which  I gave away to my boyfriend. I have to say that was the only downside to this box.. all in all, a good month! You can subscribe to beauty boxes here at £9.95 per month.

Hope you're all well.. let me know about the beauty boxes you've been receiving! Colly xxx


  1. Great post:) I really want to try the philip kingsley product. Heard lots of great reviews:)

    1. Thank you hun. I used it earlier Hollie and my hair does feel more healthy now. Thumbs up from me! X

  2. I liked the look of Feelunique boxes at first, but then I noticed that they seemed to include a lot of lower-end brands which didn't place the value of the box very high. I have to say that with this month's box they've completely overturned my view of them in that respect. I'm almost a little bit jealous, the contents really look fabulous!

    1. Thank you for your comment Chrissy, I have to admit this was one of the best I've received.. even more of a shame they've stopped them really! X
