I was checking my e-mails on my phone this morning and saw that Feel Unique had sent me an e-mail telling me that my box was dispatched so imagine my surprise when 10 minutes later there was a knock at my door from my postman with my beauty box! Now that's fast service... ha ha!
I'm not going to lie, the Feel Unique beauty box is not one of my favourites (I get Glossy, Jolie and Feel Unique). I am never excited by the contents and I think this is because it never includes any products/brands which I haven't heard of before. To some this could be a dream come true as there's no risk taking involved and you'll always expect something that readily available and probably something you've seen before which makes the box 'worth the money'. To me, this isn't what I signed up for. I want to hear about new products that could possibly become my 'holy grail'. I don't really want to hear about products which I've seen/heard about before.
I've been thinking about cancelling this box for a while now and I'm going to give it another couple of months before I decide what to do. I'm liking the look of the She Said Beauty Box and may subscribe to that one instead. I was debating about subscribing to Carmine instead as well but I'm unsure at the moment.
Enough rambling... Onto the box :
Decleor Phytopeel Face Peel Cream - Promising to exfoliate and smooth. Interesting to see how this compares to the Dermalogica Thermafoliant as I'm loving using my sample at the moment. I think I got the Thermafoliant from Glossy Box.
Phillip Kinglsey Elasticizer - A pre-shampooing treatment to moisturise. Again, Interesting. I've looked into buying this in the past from raves from other bloggers but the feelings past. I hope this going to be something I'll end up raving about. I'm currently blogging with this on my hair at the moment!
Nuxe Hulle Prodigleuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil - Oil for face, body and hair. I love oils at the moment. I don't know why but the term 'dry oil' doesn't make me want to put this in my hair. We'll see...
Elemis Lime and Ginger Hand and Body Wash - Exactly what it says on the tin - A hand and body wash. Smells lovely! I always see Elemis products as something of a treat and I wouldn't normally buy from this brand as it is a lot of money to shell out for something you may not like. Really happy to see this in the box!
Leighton Denny High Performance Colour Nail Varnish in Steel Appeal - A nail varnish is always a welcomed product. I don't have anything like this colour so I'm happy with this to try out.
Jean Paul Gautier Kokorico perfume sample - At first spray it smells like PERFUMECOFFEE but now its worn off its just your bog standard stinky bearing on granny-ish perfume. Nothing exciting.
Id like to know...
