Just a quick blog to let you know what's in my Powder Pocket box this month.
Doesn't it look pretty. I love the pastel blue shade and the theme
is for the month is Sweet Treats.
So let's dive straight in!!!
First out was the Nimue Exfoliating Enzyme. This is a brand I have never tried before and that's one of the main reasons I love these boxes - it lets you try out loads of new stuff from brand you may not have used before.
Anyway what is the Exfoliating Enzyme I hear you ask.
Well basically it is a chemical exfoliant that contains pineapple and papaya enzymes to sizzles away dead skin. Now I am a huge fan of chemical exfoliants and love the NeoStrata range which contain ADA's (alpha hydroxy acids) the strongest chemical exfoliator available on the market (my skin can tolerate them). However if you have sensitive skin you will be better of trying an enzyme based exfoliator.
Chemical exfoliants increase you skin cellular turnover and
exfoliate from the inside out. No more scrubbing your poor skin with beads & sand & feckin fruit particles :-).
The Nimue Exfoliating Enzyme promises to help reveal brighter, more refined-looking skin and as with all chemical exfoliators improve the penetration of your serums and moisturisers. It is gentle enough to use twice or three times a week and you simply apply it to clean, dry skin and leave it on for two minutes. Then re-activate it by massaging a little warm water into your face and then leave it on for an additional three to five minutes before rinsing well. I cannot wait to try it out and will let you know how I get on with it.
RRP is €49.00 for 60mls. (We received a 30ml bottle in the box)
Next out was Great Lengths Daily Moisture Shampoo.
(I love receiving mini shampoos as they are great for travelling).
Firstly I thought this shampoo was aimed at only those with hair extensions but Great Lengths use human hair in their products so it is perfect on your own hair also. It promises to protect your hair again the environmental damage & premature ageing, will help increase volume and give maximum shine.
I am away next weekend so will report back to you on
how I get on with it.
Full Size 250ml RRP €17.99 (We received a 50ml sample size)
How cute is this - A Ciate Mini Nail Polish.
It is a beautiful pastel lavender shade and perfect for summer.
Full size RRP €10.95
Now this is interesting - Hollywood Eye Magic Serum.
Now this is something I have never even heard of before.
It promises to work in minutes to reduce the appearance of lines & wrinkles, reduce eye bags and puffiness and diminish the look of dark circles. I'm not really a fan of these "miracle in a bottle" type products but I will give it a go for the fun.
Full Size RRP €75 for 15mls bottle ( We received about 1ml)
And last but not least is the Kinvara Skincare Absolute Cleansing Oil. I absolutely love Cleansing Oils so was very excited to use this product and the fact it is Irish only adds to the attraction.
I have tried this over the weekend and not only does it smell amazing it does a brilliant job of removing all my makeup including eye makeup. I just warmed a few drops between my hands and massaged it onto my skin. I wet a facecloth with hot water, hold it over my face for a few seconds and then simply wipe away. Magic!!! This will definitely be on my shopping list.
Full size RRP €19.95 for 100mls.
And as a little treat we received a pack of Love Hearts to top it all off.
So that's it for another box.
I thought this was a great box and will definitely be using all of the products. If you want to subscribe all you have to do is log on to http://www.powderpocket.com and sign up for only €15 per month.
