So it looks as though I share my birthday month with one of my fav beauty boxes 💁🏽 lucky me. Although I’m clearly a lot older.. Anywho, this month was just wow. Full of goodies & a really tasty lolly too 🍭😋 I loved the packaging this month, so instagrammable. That’s probably not a word 🤔 yeah the lolly lasted all of 5 minutes before I ate it 🙄
I’m going to start with the item I tried first, the Christophe robin cleansing volumising paste. This has blown my mind. It looks like a face mask.. But you use it like a shampoo. Mesmerised. I honestly can say this was my favourite item this month! My hair was amazingly soft & it really did give my hair volume. I do have quite thin hair so it was perfect 💆🏽 it smells herbally too, like most salon shampoo. So it felt like a treat. Plus you don’t have to use a lot 👌🏼
The hikari eye shadow quad had perfect shades for me. I love warm shades so I was definitely excited to get stuck in. I was a little disappointed as you had to use a fair amount to get any colour to show on your eyes… 😟 when it did finally build up it did look really nice, but I wouldn’t buy it myself. I used the brush that I received in this box too, purely because I wanted to try it out. Loved it 💁🏽
As I already told you, the lolly lasted for 5 minutes… It tasted really good. I clearly needed some sugar when I opened this box 😂
I have tried decleor products before & loved them then, so I wasn’t expecting to not feel the same. I really wasn’t disappointed. I love this product because it’s sort of like a gel/cream. I have used this both morning & evening, it honestly works wonders no matter when you use it. You could even use it as a makeup base. I wouldn’t say the scent of this would sell it to anyone as it smells more like cleaning products than a luxurious scent 😂 well it’s not that bad, but you know what I mean 💁🏽
This is a really unpopular opinion now.. I’m not a major fan of Illamasqua products 🙈 sorry.. So I honestly can’t even review this for you. I used it once, didn’t understand the hype & then never used it again. Sorryyyy 🙄 I suppose that’s a sort of review.
Lastly the eve lom cleanser & muslin cloth. This is more like a balm than anything, so it’s very different. The best bit about this product is that it does so much.. It cleanses, exfoliates, tones & also improves your skins circulation. What more could you ask for? It does have a slightly weird scent to it, but I can get past it 😂 do I have an issue with the way things smell?
A bit of a mixed review this month. What did everyone else think?
