Hey girls :)
So I got home from work today (after getting frustrated, impatiently waiting at the office for a delivery) and found that my Boudoir Prive box was waiting for me! I didn't realise I had put my home address for delivery. What a nice surprise for the day :)
I opened the outer packaging to reveal the gorgeous pink box, which is reusable and will certainly be reused! There is a lot of packaging (tut tut Boudoir Prive), but it does add to the look and feel! and I shall recycle and reuse everything that I can, naturally. Everything looked so pretty, adding to my excitement.
Without hesitation, I opened the wrapping to find 9 great products!
What's in the box?
- Rose & Co Apothecary Rose Petal Salve (20g)
- StudioMakeUp Line Styler Pen 'Blackest Black' (1.1ml)
- Memo Paris Les Echappees 'Inle' Eau De Parfum (small sample bottle)
- Korres Guava Body Butter (50ml)
- Leonor Greyl Palme (25ml)
- Cetuem SCR Gold Illuminating Mask (5ml)
- Cetuem SCR Gold Creme De Lite (5ml)
- Zoya Nail Varnish 'Jem' (7.5ml)
- Tropic Body Smooth (small pot)
I got 2 extra products from last month's box, as I received an email saying if I registered by Midnight on the set date I would receive these. This sold it to me, though I forgot about it and ended up completing my order at 11:59pm!! I did wonder if I would have made it in time to get the extra 2 products, and it seems I did, yay!
The products were all by brands I had not heard of, except Zoya nail varnish, of which I was sent a stunning colour (the best IMO), Jem - a dark pinky/purple glitter varnish. There was also a plastic nail set, with samples of all of Zoya's Smoke and Mirrors nail varnishes. This is a good way of showing what colours are available, though it is also pretty wasteful as lots of people now have a plastic cover, with leaflet and plastic nail display piece of not much use! I figured I will probably keep mine for my dressing table display (whenever I get and sort this!).
I will and have already (yes!) used all the products. They wouldn't necessarily be things I would go out and buy, but it is nice to have a sample of different products and a nice treat.
The eyeliner is great, the nail varnish is gorgeous and the Guava Body Butter is just yummy!
The Rose Petal Salve is a nice product too, though I covered my lips in this and could taste the Roses...which was slightly wrong! It is described as 'An excellent all-round salve', for dry lips, rough skin, lashes and brows and 'anywhere you need a little shine!'. I also tried it on my lashes and eczema!
Value For Money
With the eyeliner being worth £12 alone and the Rose Petal Salve being £5, the box is worth a lot more than the £10 you pay!
Above (more towel turban shots lol!): wearing the StudioMakeUp Line Styler Pen, which I was pleased to find was not a random colour, it is Blackest Black :)
My sister was fascinated by the box, being sceptical at first, until I opened it. Now she wants a beauty box!
This is my first beauty box and I am impressed! Now I have a problem...I don't know whether to stay with Boudoir Prive, or try another box! There are a few now and I've heard mixed reviews on them. Anyone got any advice?? Recommendations?
