What I thought:

Dr Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask

This vegan and cruelty free hydrating overnight treatment is the perfect product for dull, thirsty skin. Using only potent and pure ingredients, this nourishing mask helps to create a brighter, healthier-looking complexion. You apply this mask like a moisturiser and leave it on overnight and in the morning your skin is left feeling amazingly soft and glowing. It’s not greasy like some masks can be and it really invigorated my skin and made it feel really fresh.

Dr Botanicals Kale Superfood Nourishing Day Moisturiser

Another amazing vegan and cruelty free product from Dr Botanicals that aims to smooth and improve the appearance of your skin whilst proving nourishment and hydration. For me, this is a beauty must have. I have combination skin and this time of the year the cold leaves my skin really dry and patchy. This moisturiser feels lovely on the skin and the hydration it gives my skin seems to last a really long time. It absorbs into the skin really easily and a little goes a long way.

Dr Hauschka Lipstick 09 Chessflower

Accentuate your pout with the Dr Hauschka Lipstick; a 100% natural formula that delivers high-pigmented colour with a soft shimmer. Combining mineral pigments and moisturising botanical ingredients, including Rose Petals, Almond Oil and Carnauba Wax, the lipstick applies effortlessly to nourish and hydrate, whilst enveloping lips in smooth, kissable colour. In the colder seasons I favour darker lip colours and this one really caught my eye as it’s a gorgeous deep red/purple shade. The formula is super creamy and glides on so smoothly, it doesn’t dry out my lips like some brands do and I only had to reapply the one time so fairly long lasting.

Clarins Extra Firming Jour

The expert firming wrinkle control day cream with a fresh and silky texture that puts the spring back into your skin. This has a thicker consistency then I expected but having said that it sinks into the skin quite quickly without leaving a sticky residue and smells pleasant. This cream is lovely to use but I’m not sure that it’s tightening the skin, I’d need to use it for longer to see any real difference. However, my skin does feel so smooth and nourished after applying, and I’m happy with how it looks so far.

 Incognito Mosquito Repellent

100% natural incognito anti-mosquito spray is a powerful insect repellent that provides protection from all types of biting insects such as mosquitoes, midges, sandflies, horseflies, ticks and many more, which leads to itching and swelling. I know it isn’t the right weather for this product but I choose it to use on our upcoming holiday. l have tried a number of insect repellents and none have worked particularly well, as I end up getting terribly bitten. So, I’m hoping this product will work as well as it claims to. It doesn’t contain deet so doesn’t have that awful strong chemical smell, and is in an easy to use spray bottle.

Context Micro-Derm Regenerator

A two-in-one cleanser and exfoliator enhanced with the same crystals used in professional microdermabrasion treatments. Soothes and purifies skin as it effectively cleanses. Polishes and removes dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliator leaves skin feeling really clean and smooth. I like how the small crystals feel against my skin, it’s not too abrasive and you can feel the crystals pulling the dirt and grime off your face.

Verdict:

The products selection varies from beauty, skin care, make up, lifestyle and tools, so you’re guaranteed to find something you like and many of the items are also full size! You are able to upgrade or downgrade your monthly subscription to suit your needs. So, what’s not to love about this box?! I have brought previous boxes and I will buy many future boxes! Their collection boxes are also one to keep your eyes on as they collaborate with well-known companies to bring you the best boxes on the market for competitive prices.
