This month's box is all about the glitz and glamour of award season. As with the last two boxes it comes packaged in a beautiful matt black box but with the Powder Pocket name embossed in Gold instead of the usual signature electric pink.
The Glossy magazine has a hair tutorial by Great Lenghts to show you how to achieve the perfect Hollywood locks and some beauty tips by Ireland's very own Miss World Rosanna Davison.
So what's actually in the box?
Shiseido - Benefiance Pure Retinol Eye Mask - Full Size RRP €63 for 12 masks (2patches €10.50)
This is a 15 minute express eye wrinkle mask which promises to instantly reduce the appearance of visible lines and wrinkles around the eye area using Pure Retinol Micro-Infusion technology. It is also highly moisturising and the Mukurossi Extract switches off the wrinkle promoting enzymes that cause wrinkles to appear. Sounds amazing...cannot wait to try them!
The Body Shop - Shea Shower Cream - Full Size €8.95 for 250ml
(Sample Size 60ml €2.20)
This is actually one of my all time favourite products mainly because of the DIVINE scent.
Its a moisturising soap free full body cleanser which lathers up to become a beautiful creamy skin softening wash with a classic scent. It is recommended for dry skin but I think it can be used by all skin types.
Herra - Herra Protect Hair Perfume - Full Size 50ml €29.50.
(Sample Size FOC)
Hair Perfume is huge at the moment with nearly every female celebrities in Tinsel Town using it during award season and the various fashion weeks. And this product from Herra is the ultimate finishing product for protecting and refreshing your hair. It contains sunflower, olive and glycerin extract and is designed to protect hair against UV, pollution and air conditioning whilst locking in moisture without leaving hair feeling weighed down. The bonus is the delicious hair perfume which was exclusively designed by Chanel's former house fragrance expert. The keynotes for this perfume are Italian Bergamot, Loquat Fruit, Midnight Orchid, Rose, White Jasmine Mimosa, Heliotrope, Lily, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Sandalwood and Musk.
Don't know if I will be buying a bottle but I will say it does smell heavenly and if someone wants to give me one as a gift that would be delightful :) (Hint Hint to any of my friends or family reading this!!)
Jessica - Brilliance Top Coat - Full Size RRP €13.95 (Full Size received in box),
Jessica nail varnishes are worn by Hollywood celebrities including Rihanna and Julia Roberts. Brilliance is an advanced new formula that speeds up drying time and adds a high gloss finish to your polish. I wear Shellac on my nails all the time (It stops me from biting them) however one of my friends swears that you can use bog standard cheap nail varnish and if you use a good base and top coat it will last just as long as any expensive polish. So I will be passing this along to her to test for me.
Manicare - 4 Step File & Shine
This great nail buffer gives the ultimate high gloss shine to your nails. It has 4 sides - a Medium Grit to shape the nails, a Fine side to smooth and file the nail, the Green side to remove ridges and the White side to buff the nail to a fantastic high shine. A must have for your handbag
So thats it for another month. The total cost of the box if you were to buy all the products would be just under €30 so double the cost of the subscription which makes it great value.
My Standout Products!
I am excited to try the Shiseido Eye Mask and the Herra Protect Hair Perfume smells gorgeous but I don't think I will be investing in a bottle just because I know I won't use it.
Overall I think its a good box so I will stay subscribed for another month :)
