I'm really annoyed with myself, I got no swatches done what so ever due to me getting home so late today, what a wally. Never mind. I also got some fabulous news, I was the winner of Melanie's 23rd Birthday Giveaway over at The Color Palette. SO blooming chuffed, I've never won a giveaway before. I'm so very grateful to Melanie for the prize. I can't wait to try out some of them great polishes. Her blog is also awesome, so check her out here.
Further good news - I got my Feelunique Box this morning. I was really shocked to get a delivery on a Sunday? Post office must be starting a holiday schedule or something??
TIGI Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Dust 1g (FULL SIZE) Very similar to last months product, (Schwarzkopf Professional Dust It Mattifying Powder) although that was 10g. This is pretty big packaging for just 1g. Still a full size product which is usually priced at £9.35.
Annick Goutal Mandragore Eau De Toilette 25ml - Really impressed with the size of this scent bottle. I can't work out if I like this scent or not? Slightly reminds me of a 'hippy old school teacher' type of smell which doesn't sound appealing. Anyhoo, a really good amount of smelly stuff which usually retails at £58.65 for 50mls.
'Annick Goutal Mandragore Eau De Parfum has a higher concentration of aromatic woody notes that accentuate the power and vitality of this mysterious blend. A magical potion that acts as a soothing balm for the skin.'
Top Notes: Bergamot and pepper.
Heart Notes: Mint and star anise.
Base Notes: Boxwood, ginger and mandrake
Figs & Rouge Sweet Geranium 100% Organic Balm 8ml (FULL SIZE) - Wearing this as I write, Very hydrating and feels great on my lips although this also has the 'hippy old school teacher' kinda smell to it. I'm not a huge fan of floral scents, and this is a bit too floral for my liking. I would like however to try some of the other varieties which Feelunique stock such as the Pomegranate balm. Usually retails at £3.49 a pot.
Clarisonic Nourishing Care Cleanser 30ml - Not tried this yet, although I'm glad I got a match to my skin type (Normal/dry skin). Feelunique writes:
'This luxurious, hydrating, creamy skin cleanser provides natural moisturisation for dry, delicate skin. Olive oil and shea butter help condition and moisturise. Provitamin B5, sodium hyaluronate and sodium PCA promote skin’s ability to attract and retain moisture. Japanese green tea helps protect against free radicals associated with skin ageing. Specially formulated for sonic cleansing'
Usually retails at £21.00 for 177ml
Nails Inc Oxford Circus Nail Polish 4ml - Yay! another polish...although it's pink grrr. Why oh why does it have to be pink?! Oxford Circus is a very pretty shade of pink, but its not me at all. Retail Price £11 usually for 10ml
Living Nature Samples x3 2ml - Consists of three samples, a Vitalising cleanser, Hydrating Toning Gel and Nourishing day cream. Not tried these yet either, but might give these a go before bed tonight.
SO final thoughts on my December box? A tad smelly or should I say fragrant box this month although I'm still very impressed. So some of it isn't to my taste. True. But its fair to say Feelunique are not going to please everyone, every single time. I'm gladly going to continue my Feelunique beauty box in to the new year with eager anticipation for my January box. :)
Have a wonderful week everyone! Are you looking forward to your Feelunique Box?
