Feelunique December 2011 Beauty Box - don't read if you're still waiting for your one ;)
I've received my FU Beauty box Saturday early morning (EVERY Sat 8am, I hate package service so early!) and opened it straight away! I must admit I was very impatient and I've peeked to my FU account to find out what to expect. So what was in my box?
Box theme was Finishing Touches. "Sparkle your way through the festive season with this month's fabulous finishing touches. With a sprinkle of sugar, a touch of gloss and spritz of fragrance, all eyes will be on you!"
Plus every beauty box subscriber gets automatically £5 off when £30 spent....I've already used mine for my bf's xmas present :)
Annick Goutal Mandragore EDT - this is unfortunately very strong and musky fragrance for me, I just can't stand it :( But look at the bottle!!! It is very gorgeous dark purple matte bottle with gold print on it and long gold cap, wrapped in purple pouch with tassels..fabulous! 50ml retails for £43.35 and sample size has 25ml. That makes the value about £21.60
Figs & Rouge -100% organic balm can be used for dry lips and skin. The scent is Sweet Geranium which again is not my scent so it will go to swap box. However I've tried it and the balm melts into oil under a warm finger and it feels really nice on the lips. If you're into organic brands and don't mind geranium smell, this is a nice product. Value of this product is £3.49
Nails Inc. Oxford Circus - a miniature which has 4ml. The colour is light baby pink and has the usual Nails Inc. quality - good pigmentation, good drying time etc. Full size is 10ml and retails for £11. Miniature is the worth about £4.40
Clarisonic Cleanser - My cleanser is for oily skin which I can't use for my very dry skin so I won't be even trying it and straight to the swap box. I would like to swap it for the beige one-Nourishing for dry skin. The full size is 177ml and retails for £21. The sample is generous - 30ml and value is £3.56
TIGI Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Dust - this is very similar product to Schwarzkopf Osis+ from previous FU box. Since I kept the Osis + I won't be using TIGI (it doesn't work on my long heavy hair anyway) This is apparently full size and retails for £9.35
As an extra I got Living Nature 100% natural New Zealand cosmetics leaflet containing three 2ml samples - vitalising cleanser, extra hydrating toning gel and nourishing day cream.
This month's box was very generous but really products of my taste. The value of the box is about £42.40
