February 2012 Subscription Box Rundown

With beauty subscription boxes fully alive in Australia, and many awesome reviews already around, I though I would do mine a little different. Instead of posting a full review of all four subscription boxes, I’ve decided to to a quick overview of the products I received, where I pick a hit and miss from each box. So here we go! I will list in order of arrival purely so I don’t choose one I may have liked more.

HITS:

  • Lancome Juicy Tube by far! I adore the colour and the scent, and is not too sticky for a lipgloss.
  • Bobbi Brown Mascara. This has been my go-to mascara since this box arrived. The brush doesn’t leave my lashes clumpy looking!
  • Keratinology Overnight Treatment- I have loved the shampoo, conditioner and hair mask from this range, so I expect this treatment  to be no different.
  • Mememe Face Base- This smells gorgeous and I’m so excited to try this out under my foundation.
SPECIAL MENTION: The sample of the Red Door perfume is unlike any sample I’ve seen, certainly bigger than a standard on you could get from a department store, and the cute miniature bottle is adorable. The only reason it didn’t make the hit list is because I don’t actually like the scent! *sad face*
MISSES:
  • Sassy and Savy Hand Cream. I don’t think a month has passed where I haven’t got a hand cream from at least one box, its not something I’m really looking for (especially after buying the full size A’kin cream!)
  • Jane Iredale Self Tanner. I’m not one for tanning my face, I’d much rather use bronzer to blend in, so this sample is a little too small for me to test it on my body.
  • The Aromatherapy Co. Hand and Nail Creme. Same reason as above, but this is full size, so my mum will be extremely appreciative of this! So this will certainly not go to waste.
  • Star and Rose Confetti Soap Rose. While I adore the idea of these, I don’t have a bath to use it in currently, and it may only be a 1-2 time use if I use it as a regular soap in the shower.
Are you subscribed to any of these boxes, what did you like/not like? If you like this kind of overview post, let me know!

    I’m not subscribed to any of these boxes but I am really tempted to try out one or two. Just reading your blog, I would have picked the same for the Hits. I’m interested in trying the Keratinology Overnight Treatment as well.
