Februarys Luxbox

So it's that time of the month again when the postie brings me a little treat. Today he brought me Februarys edition of Luxbox.
If you don't know what Luxbox is, it's a monthly subscription service where you receive 4-5 products to try out. The products range from skin care, hair care and make up. It costs £10 plus £2.95 P&P a month.  http://www.luxbox.co.uk/

So onto the box...
This months box has a slight make up theme which I love!! Some people prefer skincare products ( which is fine) I just prefer make up because you can see the results instantly ( I'm just impatient ) It also benefits from 4 full sized products!! Yes 4!!

* Colour Me Beautiful lip pencil in crimson. This is a full size product and is priced at £7.50.

I haven't tried anything from this brand before, so im excited to use it. The colour is a gorgeous red, with a raspberry tone to it. I think it is a very wearable colour that can be used to brighten up any lipstick. The pencil is not dry and doesn't drag when applying.

*Inika Colour for cheeks and lips in Rosehip. Another full size priced at £22.00

The cream glides on lovely as a lipstick and is slightly moisturising ( not too much that it will slide off your cheeks). It's a vibrant and well pigmented colour with an orangey undertone.

When using it on your cheeks you only need a small amount as it is very concentrated. Saying this it blends in easily with the help from the Jojoba oil and vitamin E that it is infused with.

*Murad pomegranate Exfoliating Mask. 6 Sachets for £25.00

I received one sachet of this zingy antioxidant face mask. I love getting face masks. I use fake tan alot and like to deep clean my skin regularly to remove any traces of the old tan before re-applying. This is meant to  exfoliate away any trapped impurities and dead skin cells for a flawless and smooth complexion I have other products from the Murad range, and look forward to giving this one a go.

*Vinatge Cosmetic Company Retractable lip brush £7.00

This brush is made from natural bristles and has a handy case to keep it in.

 I must say i don't actually own a lip brush ( I'm more of a lipgloss kinda girl) but this will be perfect for me when using pots of lip balms and butters. I hate getting the product stuck under my nails , You girls will understand! Lol

*Balm Balm - Single Note EDP in Ylang Ylang £ 15.00

Again a product from the Balm Balm range, we had a lip balm last month. This is a 12ml size which is perfect for putting in your handbag. As with all balm balm products they only use natural ingredients and I've never seen or smelt a natural perfume before. The scent is very floral and powdery to me and is not one I normal go for. You can definitely tell they use all natural oils as it has a very fresh and almost herby Aroma to it.

So there you go, this months box. I am really pleased with it as I'll use all the products in it ( apart from the perfume which I will give to my mum for Mother's Day).

What did you think to the box? Yay or Nay?
