Good evening beauties! So today I found this on my door step! So excited to receive this month’s because all of the boxes I’ve received have been pretty amazing.
This month’s box is about Sun, Sea and Sand. Whether your staying home and hoping the best British seaside towns this summer or escaping to a sandy Island hideaway, this box provides samples that will see though the hottest season. This month’s box includes nourishing eye cream and a chunky Lip pencil to take you from beach to bar in a jiffy!
So let’s get cracking on what I received then!
Benefit The Professional
An award winning primer that magically erases pores and leaked skin velvety.
I’m always happy to see any Benefits product. Even more happy that it’s a primer! I need primers for my skin because I have quite a lot of pores on my nose so this will be put to the test! The sample is a 7.5ml which should last me a while. Full price product is £24.50. Full review is available here.
Models Own Nail Polish
Stay on trend down to the tips of your toes with these gorgeous hard wearing nail polishes.
To be honest, I’m not that crazy about glitter nail varnish. It’s a nightmare to get off. This one is called Roman Candle. I’ll still try it out. Maybe I will love it that much I won’t care that much about how long it takes to get off? Hmm. This is a full size item at 14ml. RRP £5. Full review of this item is available here.
Whish Three Wishes Lavender Body Butter
Not your granny’s lavender, this week scented antioxidant rich Lotion nourishes skin.
Like I said on my last post, I have loads of body lotion to get through so I’m kind of sick of receiving them. Would like a bit more variety then a nail varnish and body lotion every week. It does smell amazing how ever. This is a 22ml sample size. Full size product is £14.50
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
A light, hard working formula to brighten the eye area and keep wrinkles at bay.
I’ve already had a sample of this before from glossybox. I did enjoy using it but It would be nice to do a review on this this time around. The last time it lasted me a while so I’m kinds glad to see this again! This is a 7ml sample. Full size is £20
LAQA & CO Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Menatour
A high gloss pencil to add a pop of sheer, nourishing and wearable colour.
Im not sure what I think about the colour to be honest. I like purple, but I’ve never tried it on my lips. I did a quick swatch..
It really is glossy.. And purple! I’m gonna have to try this out before I say anything because colours have surprised be before when they are applied! I’m not sure if this is full size or not but it’s a .07oz sample and the full size one is £14
Lifestyle Extra – Filosfille 4 Sided Nail Buffer
Your at home DIY manicure made easy. Just add nail polish!
I have used these before and they are amazing. They make your nails super shiny. I haven’t used one is quite a while so this is a nice little extra! Priceless!
So I’m pretty pleased with this month’s box. Mostly to do with the Benefit Primer. The other items are okay. I’m kind of sick of receiving body lotion and I’ve already tried the eye cream out before. But when you have been receiving beauty boxes for as long as I have your bound to receive the same products from different boxes. I’m interested in trying out the Lip Crayon to see how it looks on. Reviews will be available soon!
