These beauty boxes have taken the beauty community by storm *queue lightening*! Now I haven’t tried any of them as I kind of wanted to sit back and really analyse the best one for me, if any at all!

The box is really big (not too sure why but it is!) so considering the size of the box I’d expect more products (greed) however 5 seems to be standard. 

Three full size products? That’s superb! 
Inside the October box there is…

Trind Nail Repair Natural: Can’t say I’m familiar with this one, perhaps because it’s a Dutch brand. I can’t seem to put it down as my nails can sometimes be as stressed as me, so they get weak and break. Lets just say since using them my nails haven’t been weak.

TheBalm Fratboy Blush: Loving this smooth peachy pinkish blush; its matte and powdery texture don’t look ashy on my skin which is a pleasant surprise considering I never wear this sort of pink. Oh and the packaging…ADORE!

Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream: Never tried anything from Balance Me before so it was great for me to try it. I was given the 30ml sample size, the 100ml full-sized version retails for £14.50. I didn’t like the cream very much as I found it quite heavy but it did absorb quickly into my skin without the sticky greasy feeling. I adore the scent, but it’s not for everyone as my sister said it smells like something for old people – maybe it’s the Rosehip and Lavender.

Caudalie Quenching Sorbet-Crème: I’ve recently started using the Caudalie Premier Cru LA Creme Yeux (eye cream) and the  Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminee. I was very keen to try this out 🙂 I’m used to heavy moisturizers, however this is quite light and softly scented, oh and not forgetting the fact that it’s for dry skin too. WIN

Daniel Sandler Eye Delight in Peach: From looking at the colour it is a loose eye shadow with pink with speckles of shimmer, but on me it looks white/silvery. It’s easy to blend with your fingers and I didn’t get any fallout whilst blending either. I’m very impressed – just wished it showed up pink on me.

Overall Impressions:

Quite liking the contents, as there’s a mixture of skincare and makeup in addition to products I’ve never used (let alone heard of). Loved the fact that there were three full sized but I’m not sure if that’ll continue. 

The Carmine box is £10 + P&P and is a monthly subscription, although if you go with the 12 month plan you get a free box.
