What I thought:

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist Intense Deluxe Edition

The first item I chose was a brand I’ve been wanting to try for ages and I was thrilled to see that it was a full-sized product! The packaging is so sophisticated and classy and is very appealing. This mist is so lovely it has an uplifting rose fragrance which just smells amazing! The mist is really light and helps to provide extra hydration to the skin, not only that it also cools it down which is exactly what I need during this gloriously hot weather we’re having! I really like that it dries extremely quickly without leaving behind any sticky or greasy residue.

O’Keeffe’s Healthy Feet Foot Cream  

O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream is a moisturiser that heals, relieves, and repairs extremely dry, cracked feet. This is fantastic as you can notice the difference after just the first application! My feet have vastly improved and have gone from being rough and dry, to being really soft and smooth. It is non greasy and absorbs into the skin really well and a little also goes a long way. I will definitely be buying more when I require some and I absolutely recommend you give this a go if you have rough, dry or cracked heels.

Basic Beauty Tools Spongeclean

The Spongeclean liquid foundation blender cleanser gently cleanses, conditions and refreshes your foundation blender sponge to keep it hygienically clean and in good condition. It did a pretty good job at removing and cleaning my blender but it was not 100% devoid of foundation, had I spent longer cleaning it I’m sure it would have removed it all. It has a gel like consistency and has a lovely fragrance that has transferred onto my blender making it smell fresh and clean. It contains conditioning ingredients that soften and keep your blender nice and bouncy after washing which is also a bonus!

The Sign Tribe Remove and Chill Reusable Pad

This nail polish remover pad is reusable and washable and can be used up to 25 times, saving not just your money but also the landfill from the use of plastic or cotton fluff-based wipes/pads. The reusable pad is really effective at removing nail polish and is suitable to use with any nail polish remover. It is lightweight and portable which makes it convenient to keep in your travel bag, or purse for easy clean up on the go. The material and stitching are really good quality and the fabric is lovely and soft which is gentle to use on your nails.

Jurlique Moisture Plus Rare Rose Gel Cream

Unlike the balancing mist this is only a deluxe sample which I was aware of when I chose it, but I wanted to make the most of trying out this brand while I could. Even though it is only a small size, I was thoroughly impressed on how much I liked it and a little really goes a long way as the tube has lasted me a week and there’s still some left! The rose scent is absolutely heavenly and it applies like silk. It absorbs into the skin really well and after a weeks use I have noticed how hydrated and soft my face feels, it also has a little glow to it too!

Polaar Night Relaxing Cream

I really like Polaar as a brand, I’m currently using a few of their products so I’m pleased to add this into my daily skincare routine. I’ve been applying it every night for a week and I like it just as much as the other Polaar products I’m using! The cream applies really evenly into the skin and smells really delightful! In the morning my skin looks and feels bright and refreshed and is soft to the touch. I have combination skin and was worried it would leave it feeling greasy but it left it feeling and looking really fresh!

Verdict:

My second LIB box of 2020 and I’m really pleased with everything I have received. Near enough all the products are full sized and for a bargain price! The products selection varies from beauty, skin care, make up, lifestyle and tools, so you’re guaranteed to find something you like. 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.
