What I thought:

Pop Mask Starry Eyes Mask

The Starry Eyes mask is your ‘calm in a pouch’ giving you some well-earned rest time. This self-warming eye mask is amazing for aiding relaxation and sleep – something I’m not getting much of at the moment so I welcomed anything that can help me drift off to the land of nod. It starts to warm up within 30 seconds and lasts up to 20 minutes. I found it really soothing on the eyes and I was asleep within 10 minutes, in the morning my eyes felt and looked less puffy too!

Show Beauty Leave – in Conditioner

This opulent Riche leave-in conditioner is easily absorbed into the hair without weighing it down, leaving hair nourished, light and velvet-sleek. I am a big fan of leave in conditioners, and I really liked this one! It absorbs effortlessly into the hair and leaves my feeling soft and silky. Not only that, but it also helps to detangle hair and manage flyaways and frizz. Definitely pricier than my other leave in conditioners but worth every penny.

Klorane Dry Shampoo

Suitable for all hair types, the shampoo helps your locks regain volume and bounce, leaving them looking luscious and refreshed. This is fantastic stuff! I religiously use dry shampoo in between washes and usually stick to one particular brand however; I may have found a new replacement! I have quite fine hair, and this gives it extra oomph when it’s looking a bit lifeless and freshens my hair right up without leaving a powdery residue behind.

Mum & You 100% Biodegradable Wipes

Enjoy wipes without the guilt with Mum & You’s 100% biodegradable baby wipes, which contain zero plastic and are made from naturally derived fibres, which breaks down quickly after throwing away. Every ingredient used in Mum & You products is rigorously tested and specifically chosen for its hypoallergenic properties so are soft and gentle on your baby’s behind. They mop up messes with ease and they’re wet enough to be effective, yet not too wet that you have to dry off after. An essential for your baby bag as this pack size contains 56 wipes so enough to last you a while.

Laidbare Spot the Difference

This oil free, mattifying treatment cream soothes sensitive skin while reducing lumps and bumps. I have combination skin so my t-zone can become quite greasy and now and again it does break out. I’ve tried several different creams but none have worked as well this! I really like this product and I can see a clear difference within 24 hours on any spots/blemishes it’s applied to. I’ve used many products over the years and this is the first one I would definitely recommend.

 Friendly Hair & Body Bar – Lavender & Geranium

A compact bar that is naturally cleansing and refreshing and smells truly amazing! It’s only small but still the perfect size to travel with and great to use on your hair and body. Its cleansing and deodorising properties make it a luxurious little soap, shampoo or body wash. Best of all, it helps those of you who are eco-conscious to cut down on plastic shampoo and handwash bottles, protecting the environment.

Extras –

Lindt 50g & Josh Wood Colour

In the spirit of the festive season LIB have added extra treats into each box this month! I received some delightfully tasty Lindt chocolates and a Josh Wood Colour Everything Mask! Order your box to find out what you’ll get!


My last box of the year and what a box to see out the year! 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.
