Hey guys, I know I haven’t been sticking to schedule recently but my body is not co-operating with me. I’ll write when I can and just want to say thank you for reading/following/good vibes…everything really.
OK, so this weeks new product will be a first impressions of this months Dollibox. For those of you who have never heard of Dollibox, it is a beauty subscription service. You pay £10 + £3.90 p&p for five products every months. There are pre-pay plans which makes it a little cheaper e.g If you take out the 3 month subscription the box works out £9.50 per box. The contents can range from deluxe sample sizes to full size products and they are always a surprise. There is no contract. They do ship outside the UK (I would expect delivery to be more).
This was the contents of my August box:
- Meow Lashes
- Technic Colourfix Blush & Bronze palette
- Egg Face Mask
- Space Mask
- Awake Organics Aura Clean Deodorant
These lashes are made with 100% mink hair. They can be brought from http://www.meowlashes.com for £10.95. The site claims they can be used between 20-25 times with proper care. They state the mink hairs are ethically sourced but I cannot say these are cruelty free. They do feel very soft and I love the style that I have received, I haven’t worn them yet so I can’t say how comfortable they are but I am happy they were included, it’s not something I would have brought myself.
I have never heard of a natural deodorant actually working (feel free to leave me a comment if you have). I’ve tried a little bit of this product on the back of my hand, it feels very gritty. Once it melts into the skin it does make the skin feel a lot smoother. There is a lovely clean, spa like scent to it but I don’t think it would be to everyone’s taste. It does not tell me how much product is in the pot (just travel size) but 30g is £12.99 on their site at the moment (www.awakeorganics.com). It also says this is not an antiperspirant so will not stop perspiration. This is probably something I will never reach for.
I love a good face mask. I can never have to many, I even have my husband doing them with me! The Egg Face Mask sounds right up my street. It is more tailored for those with oily skin which if I’m honest, I could fry an egg on my face the amount of oil I produce. The spacemask is a warming eye mask said to relieve tired and strained eyes. Sounds interesting! The egg mask retails at £4.00 in http://www.thisisbeautymark.com and you can get the space masks for £15.00 for 5 at http://www.spacemasks.com.
This is not something I was excited about. Don’t get me wrong, most Technic products are great for the price point but I prefer powder products when it comes to blush, contour and bronzing. They are really creamy, pigment is nice and easily blended. A good product, doesn’t blow me away but retailing at £4.99 from http://www.techniccosmetics.com, will do the job!
Verdict: If I walked into a shop, saw these products in a bundle for £13.90 would I buy it? No I wouldn’t, you’re not getting a bad deal but other than the face mask, there is nothing I’m jumping for joy over. Yes, the lashes are pretty, and the palette is a full size product but I’m still underwhelmed. Maybe I’m expecting too much. I think I’ll save my money one product that wows me rather than five that are “meh”.
What do you guys think? Does the Dollibox interest you at all?
