Beauty Boxes - my buy again products (2011)

I have found all the brands above via the beauty boxes (apart from the Emma Hardie cleansing balm which I'd tried before - and love!).

October - Feel Unique

Tigi Catwalk Sleek Mystique Blow Out Balm - absolutely love this, makes hair so smooth and smells so nice.  

Caudalie Radiance Day Fluid - love this, have since bought full size (and got small size pictured here in a gift pack).  

October - Boudoir Prive

Korres Citrus Little Moisturising Body Milk - lovely light lotion with lemon scent.

Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme - if I had to choose one favourite from the boxes it would be this.  You can read my review here.  I'm definitely going to check out other items in the range.  I have also stocked up on this via swaps on Beauty Box Swaps on Facebook.

October - Glossybox

Stila Smudge Waterproof Eyeliner in Moray - lovely shade (olive green) with gold fleck and great staying power.

November - Feel Unique

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm - already loved this so welcome addition to the November box.  

Loved the Prady Candy EDP sample vial and was lucky to get the full size at Christmas.

November - Glossybox

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer - already loved this product, welcome addition to the box.

Illamasqua Freak EDP sample vial - love, finished it. (no pic).

November - Boudoir Prive

Korres Wild Rose 24 hour moisturiser - really moisturising with light scent.

Rahua Volumising Shampoo & Conditioner sachets - really loved this product but wouldn't pay full size price (£27/£28) so always on the lookout for sachets.

December - Feel Unique

Annick Goutal Mandragore EDT - would never have picked this scent but love the fresh, fruity minty scent and a huge 25ml.

December - Glossybox

Cargo Lipgloss - I got Paris in my box (since acquired Morocco and Tokyo via Beauty Box Swaps).  Really great lipgloss, great colour and feels smooth on the lips and not sticky.

December - Joliebox (formerly Boudoir Prive)

Kusmi Detox Tea - delicious!

I loved trying just about all the items in the boxes.  The ones above are my favourites. If you want to read more about the product - check out the blog posts month by month. x


  1. Great products :) Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. I love the Illamasqua, EDP, I've recently tried it and I just love it!

  3. I love Caudalie skincare - they put the quenching sorbet in the October Carmine box and I was converted immediately! Really tempted to try the feelunique box - do they have a good balance of skin/hair/cosmetics products?

  4. I loved the tea too. Nice extra!!

  5. I love the Tigi Catwalk Sleek Mystique Blow Out Balm it smells so amazing! x

  6. @Drama and Makeup, its on my wishlist! x

    @Hannah, the Caudalie products are really good. Normally Feel Unique has good range but this month (I picked up my box this morning) is all skin/hair/body and no make up at all! x

    @Alex, agree tea is yummy, great extra! I've got 3 from swaps :) x

    @Shopuntilyoudrop, I know the smell is fab! x

  7. Ah good to know - I always like at least one make-up addition!
    Just popped up a new post if you fancy heading over:

  8. Nice idea posting the products you've actually bought! I'm only on my second feelunique box and am not particularly taken by anything yet but am going to try a few more months :) Please follow at

    Thanks! x

  9. Great post, I like seeing what people are buying the full sizes of from the beauty boxes! I think I'm going to get some of the other Cargo lipglosses, I loved Tokyo x

  10. @LottysLuxuries, I thought Feel Unique wasn't as exciting this month but still great value at under a tenner. Thanks for following, following back x

    @Evelyn, thanks! I love the lipglosses x

  11. Love Kusmi detox tea and I've been using a Rahua conditioner sample this weekend, didn't realise how expensive it was!

  12. @Becky, its yummy! Love Rahua but so expensive x
