After the long wait for last months box, I wasn’t expecting to see February’s box until the middle/end of the month, but surprisingly, this arrived within a few days of the month starting!
Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum
Calling all those with dry and sensitive skin! This is the lastest addition to the Caudalie Vinosource family and it is a little gem. With this extra cold weather, your skin can get dehydrated very quickly, so it is important for you to add some moisture to your routine. This serum diffuses water to restore moisture balance and leave your skin soft and supple. The extra grape water and hyaluronic acid added in the formula will give your complexion a radiant and dewy look.
How to use:
On clean skin, use it morning and night before applying your moisturiser.
With the ability to revitalise your skin on it’s own, try using as a makeup base – it makes the perfect primer!
I can’t see me reaching for this as a skincare product any time soon. However, I am really interested to see how well it works as a primer!
This mask is a real super star product and here’s why: it will give your complexion radiance and lumisonity, whilst also diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and helping to prevent them. It will also relieve your face of any signs of fatigue and even out your skin tone. All of this magic in a cream texture with extra easy application. What’s not to like?
How to use:
Apply generous amount to your face, neck, décolleté and eye contour, leave for 15-30 minutes, then remove using a damp cotton wool pad.
We like to leave the mask for the whole night to allow the skin to fully absorb all the goodness from this mask! Rinse your face in the morning with warm water to reveal true radiance and start your routine!
I bloody well love a face mask. My collection of them is growing at a rapid rate, so I’m definitely not disappointed to see this in this months box.
Dr. PAWPAW Orignal Multipurpose Clear Balm
If you are not already familiar with this multipurpose balm, then let us introduce you to the Dr. PAWPAW family! These little tubes might look small but they are oh-so powderful! They can be used wherever your skin needs hydration, literally. On your lips (duh), on your face if you have a few dry patches, elbows, feet, cuticles, as a nappy cream, for sun burn, skin irritation – you get the picture! In this month’s Beauty Box, you will find the Original Dr. PAWPAW Multipurpose soothing balm, containing three fabulous, all-natural ingredients: fermented Pawpaw fruit (Papaya), Aloe Vera and Olive Oil, making this balm a natural beauty must-have!
How to use:
Just apply it on your lips and everywhere else you need!
We like to use it as a highlighter during the day. If you just pat a pea size amount on the tip of your cheekbones, it will look like the most gorgeous, dewying highlight. If you want to go a bit bolder, try it on the eyelids and say hi to a gorgeous glossy look.
I already have one of these from another subscription box and never really used it until the other day. Boy, am I HOOKED on this stuff! Possibly one of the best affordable lip balms out there.
Bellapierre Shimmer Roll in Champange
The perfect product to complete your rendezvous look! This easy-application shimmer roll with leave you with an instant glow whenever you need to add some glam to your look! We selected a colour that could work on all skin types – whether it is applied as an eyeshadow or as a highlighter.
How to use:
You can use to help create a full look by applying all over the eyelid or use just a touch in the middle of the eyelid to make any colour underneath pop out. When blended in, it makes a perfect highlighter too so be such to add a touch of sparkle to those cheekbones as well!
Speaking of that sparkle, try and add some to your collarbones – when you wear a décolleté it’s such a nice touch to add some glamour and shine to your outfit!
This shimmer is really stunning, but the packaging completely lets it down for me. I like my products to feel some what expensive – not like I just picked it up from Claire’s Accessories. I’m going to attempt to open this up and depot it into a little tub… Wish me luck!
Trifle Cosmetics Sublime Lip Scrub in Sugar Pear
A crunchy sugar scrub that will make your lips as soft as butter. It is formulated with Cacao Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Pecan Seed oil so that it hydrates and nourishes your lips while taking away all dead skin cells. To make this product even ore heavenly, it is infused with toffee mixture and pear extract – your lips will thank you for this little treat!
How to use:
Scoop some product with your fingers and using circular motions scrub your lips until smooth. Wash if off with some water.
We like to use lip scrub once a week to make sure our lips are nice and soft. It is also a non-negotiable step when applying red lip stick! It will help the lipstick to last longer on your lips!
As much as I love a lip scrub, I’ve never brought one and only made my own. I feel like they’re somewhat over priced for something you can make in 2 minutes at home…
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
A bestseller within the skincare world, this cream is as famous as Chanel Numero 5. This cream is perfect for all skin types and is designed to increase hydration and help improve the apperance of dull skin and fine lines. Super hydrating yet not sticky, the lightweight formula makes it perfect applied as a primer. The powerful anti-ageing ingredients of the award-winning Pro-Collagen Marine Cream have been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness and hydration in as little as 14 days.
How to use:
If you have a full skincare routine, then this cream is best applied after the serum or oil. Just a pea size amount is needed as the formula is concentrated and super light, place onto your hands and warm together before application. Then gently smooth over the face, nexk and décolleté every morning.
Again because of its amazing lightweight texture, if during the day your skin looks a big tired, then instead of using a mist try pressing it into the skin. Instant pick-me up for the skin and muvh more effective than any mist we tried! Partner up with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum for maximum benefits!
At the age of 20, I don’t think I need to worry about anti-ageing creams any time soon (also, I have such bad oily skin, so I’m praying that my face will never see a wrinkle). I will keep hold of this for now, but I really don’t think I’ll be using it.
