CC Beauty Review by Sam – February 2018

Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to Aqib Javed from CC Beauty for sending BoXession this box to review.
I absolutely love CC Beauty box! This is one I regularly subscribe to So imagine my excitement when I found out I would be reviewing it for a second time! CC Beauty Box (in case you haven’t already heard me rave about it) sends you 4-5 normally full size high-end items a month! Brands like Too Faced, Lancôme, Gucci, YSL and Dior just to name a few regularly get sent to your door for under £30 a month!
It gets better, they also have a generous points system as well, 10 points to the pound! So it’s easy to build up an extra treat for yourself from the large selection of high-end items on the Website.
You can see my excitement and sheer delight in my live unboxing here and give me a cheeky like:

So into the Box…

This month it came packed in a sleek black magnetic close box With a CC sticker on. the items inside are wrapped in a faux silk cloth everything about this box screams luxury! And let’s face it that’s what we all crave in a box.

And what was in the truly amazing February edition?

Gucci Guilty Black Body Wash 50ml RRP £9.99
I have had this before with my points and I must say This smells amazing and foams up well leaving you feeling and smelling like a million bucks. It really adds a little luxury to your shower and I’m so glad it was in this months box.

Lancôme Advanced GENIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrate 5ml RRP £7.25
This is far more powerful than the original  from Lancôme to the tune of 40%! It targets 48 skin proteins instead of 2; impressive I know. A little goes a long way with this so the 5ml sample gives you a decent chance at seeing the results!
Dior DiorShow Bold Brow Instant Brow Volumizing Brow Mascara shade 021 Medium RRP £22.00
I love this! Well who doesn’t like Dior?! I found this product becoming a part of my daily routine, it’s said to achieve lush, full, groomed brows and it does exactly that! It’s a game changer for sure. It’s easy to apply and gives instant results and the packaging is to die for.

Velvet 59 Lipstick in Pink Pipeline from The Malibu Sunset Collection RRP £18.00
This creamy opaque lipstick it’s amazing. How gorgeous is that packaging and the pink shade is just, words cannot describe. I’m not a huge pink fan but I love this the shade will suit almost anyone and the formula is amazing! It’s long lasting, stays well and smells truly good enough to eat.
I’ve not really come across this brand before but now I have I want more! This is a must have for any lipstick obsessed or non obsessed for that matter! You have to get it just to try it. It looks, wears, and smells amazing what more do you need?!
IMG_6164Talika Lipocils Expert Eyelash 10ml Gel RRP £39
This is a very welcome repeat! I swapped my bits off on BoXession to get my hands on a few backups of these. I’m currently on my 3rd one and wasn’t looking forward to shelling out all the money on another! This serum is amazing I get so many compliments on my natural lashes now and it’s thanks to this! I don’t need to get professional treatments on my lashes anymore (much to my beauticians disgust) thanks to this. It helps strengthen lengthen and curl you lashes! It really is all that and more. This alone is worth the box price wise and a little more!
FullSizeRender-3Giorgio Armani Eyeshadow Brush no14 RRP £29
I must say I have a fair few brushes and this easily beats the likes of nars it’s so soft but also firm giving you amazing application and precision. Its dome shaped so lets you add a precise sweep of colour over the eyes. The eye shadow not only applies amazingly on the eyes it’s also firm enough to contour and highlight to create dramatic and glamourous eye looks.

What’s not to love about this Box?

I loved everything about this box! There is so many new and old favourite products this month! I’m always super excited for this box to arrive because this is a box that never fails to impress and amaze me and i’m admittedly very hard to please when it comes to makeup!
I believe cosmetics are a luxury and should feel like one, I want to feel like a million bucks when I put my make up on and this box helps me achieve that on a budget!
Anyone that knows me will tell you CC Beauty is the first box I recommend to anyone that asks, it’s just always astounding value for money  and amazingly luxurious!
I have brought previous boxes and I will buy many future boxes, so I really have put my money where my mouth is with this box. So ditch the boxes that fail to impress and get something truly amazing delivered every month!
Stuck for a gift idea? Not anymore hint hint men of the world! (Perfect valentines gift).
I can’t see how any make up lover would dislike this box, it has timeless classics like Dior and more funky top of the line new brands such as Too Faced this box is great for the young and the old. Even if you’re not a brand junkie like me it give you a great way to try out the higher end products for a snip of the price. I’ve honestly made so many must have beauty discoveries since getting this box and this months is worth every penny!
