This special edition was a Pearl Lowe inspired box- song writer turned designer- a white floral print against a pretty pastel coral with the theme ‘Vintage Floral’.
A-Derma- Intense Repair Lip Balm (£7.95) Received in full size, I was very pleased with the results of this product; the lip balm had a long lasting, scent free glossy looking finish.
Yves Rocher France- So Elixir Yves Rocher Eau de Parfum (£44) Nobody ever wants to receive 1ml perfume sachet samples but this small 5ml bottle is very handy for a carrying in a small purse. Neither fruity, sweet, fresh, youthful nor floral; this is definitely a classic scent, but one I feel I’ve purchased so many times from so many different brands.
Nip & Fab- Dry Skin Fix Body Butter in Mango (£9.95) Smooth and creamy in texture, this burst of fruit is perfect for waking you up on those gloomy Monday mornings and feels great on the skin; but disappointingly, not exceptional at dealing with dry skin.
Essie- Nail Lacquer (£7.99) A brand I know and love well; I was very glad to receive a full size product in the colour Rosebowl- a perfect bright shade for both spring and summer. The glossy finish didn’t last more than two days however, even with the use of a top coat.
Sleek Makeup- Blush (£4.49) Another brand I am extremely familiar with, but a colour I will probably never use (Flamingo); nevertheless I would expect, that as with my other Sleek Blushes, it would provide easy application, with fairly high pigmented colour to provide a natural looking finish.
Overall, the box was worth about double what I had to pay thanks to the three full size products and I am likely to repurchase four of the five products- I’m sure I’m not alone in wishing that beauty boxes stopped sending us perfume samples.
