Wednesday, 14 September 2011 Beauty Box - September

I know beauty boxes have been around for a while but I've never been one to lust over them. But a month or so ago I recieved an email about's foray into the beauty box world. Feelunique is a website I've ordered from before and liked, so I guess that's what swayed my decision.

I'd pretty much forgotten I'd signed up until I got an email a few days ago saying that they were sorry but the September box was going to be late. So I eventually recieved it today, after they sent a dispache email on Monday (pretty speedy delivery)

Excuse the picture heaviness. I haven't had a chance to try out the new products really so reviews in time I guess!

Eek stuffed full!

I didn't mind it was late, but I always like free stuff!

New CID Cosmetics Picture Perfect Kit - full size

Contains 2 eye shadows, lipgloss, highlighter and mascara. 

Lipgloss, eyeshadows and highlighter

The eyeshadows are actually really nice, soft feeling a really pigmented. Can def see me using the brown a lot. Lipgloss is good colour as is the highlighter, the mascara is so bloody small though, it's pretty pointless!

Redken Quick Dry 18 Mini 0 mini sized 100ml retails £3.15

Am a fan of Redken and I actually was about to buy a mini hairspray for my holiday, so this is perfect. But at the end of the day it's hairspray. Smells ok, works well, I'm not quite sure what the quick drying part is about though. Since when does hairspray take long to dry anyway? Anyway I needed this, so WIN

Balm Balm 100% Organic Tea Tree Face Balm - 30ml (full size) Retails £5.99

This balm is the same concept as Elizabeth Ardens 8 Hour Cream etc. So basically you can use it anywhere, I have however never used those creams/balms on my face as they are so damn greasy. I am inclined to try this one though as it contains tea tree oil and is organic, boy does it stink though! Like I said I'm going away so I reckon this might be used as a sort of mask for my face on the 7 hour plane journey. Tea tree is a old favourite of mine for getting rid of spots on my skanky skin so this is pretty useful for me and I'm willing to get over the smell for that reason. But for people with lovely spotless skin, be warned it really does stink.

Ella Bache Creme Tomate Vitamin Radiance Cream - 30mls (Full Size 50mls - retails £45.95)

Containing tomato, this is supposed to be a complexion brightener. Has a lovely pearl like sheen to it that doesn't make you look like a disco ball face. I like.

Di Palomo Wild Fig and Grape Enriching Hand and Nail Cream 25ml (Full size 75ml - retails £6.30)

No-one can ever do wrong by giving me hand cream, as my hands a constantly being washed or covered in alcohol gel. This smells nice, doesn't particullary feel like anything special on though, but I'm happy enough

Caudalie VinoPerfect Day Perfecting Fluid

This is an extra in the box. Feels nice, only a tiny size but as it was an extra I don't care!

Elle Saab perfum Echatillon 1ml

This picture makes it look huge! It's just a perfume sample though. Smell nice, I like keeping little samples in my bag for top ups through the day. This was another extra too!

So all in all I'm pretty pleased, but then at the end of the day I love a surprise so for me this was kind of like opening a Christmas present! 

Did you receive the beauty box. Or have I ruined the surprise?
