I have honestly lost track of time and I didn't even realise this box was due. Perhaps because I was still enjoying last month's goodies or perhaps because the year is literally flying by, who knows. All I do know is that I was genuinely impressed by its contents; 5 full-size products to make dark afternoons and cold days a little brighter?! Yes please!
Talika Photo-Hydra Day | £24.85
Shown to us in a sneak peak in last month's box, this was the product I was really looking forward to. It claims to hydrate as well as prime the skin and I can vouch for that. I've used it twice now, applying in the morning following my toner and before the primer, and I am impressed at how quickly it is absorbed by the skin. It has kept my make-up for longer (in day 1 of trial) and I have noticed less shine in my t-zone for sure. Not entirely sure if this is the reason or if my current day cream just really sucks, but I am surprised at how this has worked so far and am eager to see how it will help as the months get colder, and as a result, the skin gets drier.
Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara | £17.95
Claiming to leave lashes with dramatic volume and definition, I am not sure if I am doing something wrong here. Yes it is 100% cruelty-free and yes it has a unique (but weird) wand, but volume was nowhere near to be found. I know this sounds harsh, and maybe it is, especially as I have already found my favourite mascara of all time. But honestly, this just didn't it do it for me and I will be passing it forward. For the price you pay, you are better off getting 2 Maybelline mascaras if you ask me.
Lanolips 101 Ointment | £7.99
This multi award winning and multi-purpose ointment with 100% naturally derived ingredients is greatly raved on the internet and given my Lollipops Lip Balm Délicieuse has almost run out, I am glad to see a replacement in this month's box. When applied to my rather dry lips (thanks wind!), I loved how soften they felt for hours. This stuff is match made in heaven for chapped lips and I will give it a try on my cuticles and around my nose too; didn't I say this was multi-purpose?! Say goodbye to winter dry lips and skin, thanks to this little guy!
So Susan Haute Light Highlighting Pencil | £14.95
At first glance, I wasn't too sure what this was, but a tutorial or two after, I was excited. Like the ointment, this can be used in various ways; highlight the brow bone, down the nose bridge, cupid's bow and to mask dark circles. On my circles it worked really well and I like how it gave my face that boost of clarity and radiance that it so desperately needs. Made with White Truffle extract & Eyeseryl® peptide, this crayon aims to diminish eyebags and increase skin elasticity; I am eager to keep using and see how that turns out. Being cruelty, parabens and mineral oil free, this pencil makes the perfect highlighting tool and despite the high price for such a tiny thing, it is worth every penny.
Nicka K Airbrush Blending Sponge | £6.50
We are all familiar with Beauty Blenders and despite having two, I wanted something a little more defined and contoured to yield flawless application. Regardless of it being in an odd dome shape, I have found that it really does help apply foundation around the nose and inner corners of the eyes. , This works with other liquid products too and it has to be number two favourite of the box.
