REVIEW: Blogger Beauty Box - January 2016

We all love a new beauty box right? I know I do and when I found out about the Blogger Beauty Box run by the lovely Vix I was so excited to give it a try. At only £10 a box this is a lovely idea to get your hands on some goodies and support a fellow blogger whilst you're at it. 

How Now Brown Cow Gradual Tanner - This is the biggest item in the box and so logically I want to start with it. The How Now Brown Cow is an all natural tanning cream that hasn't got all the nasties that usual tanning creams have. What I like about this company is that they're completely transparent with their ingredients and there genuinely isn't anything grim in this! You can purchase this for £15.50 so you've already made your money back on this box! I've not actually tested this yet as I like to embrace the pale in winter but I will definitely be reaching for this come spring time! You can check it out here.

Anubis Barcelona Red Fruit Cream - I really can't find anything about this product online so all I can tell you is that it's a facial moisturiser that is made with red berries and doesn't contain parabens. I'm sorry I can't give you more details (if you have any more info please let me know!) It feels nice on the skin, it absorbs well and doesn't feel too heavy so I imagine I will quite enjoy using this, but I just wish I had more details!!  

I love... Mango & Papaya, Raspberry & Blackberry Shower Creme - I've never tried this brand of shower gel before but I am close to running out of my Roger & Gallet so I quite happy to receive these mini's to test. The Mango & Papaya smells divine, but the Raspberry & Blackberry smells like that "Blue Raspberry" sweet flavour that was super popular back in the early 2000's - which isn't really my thing. That being said I'm still looking forward to using these as they create a nice lather and do leave your skin feeling moisturised.  You can purchase the full sizes on Superdrug for £2.99 so they are budget friendly as well! 

MUA Lip Liner in Softly Lined - Of all the products this is the one that really disappointed me. I don't find myself often searching around the MUA stand when I'm in superdrug just because if I'm spending money out on makeup I always want good quality (ngl I'm abit of a snob like that). But regardless the price doesn't always mean it's going to be correspondingly rubbish so I put my reservations aside and tested this curiously metallic shade out. I can't lie to you. I hated it. It's a shimmery/frosted baby pink and not only does it look bloody awful on but it also sucks all the moisture out of my eternally dry lips. This is a shame as I'm sure if I received a different colour my experience would have been better. But I'm just not a baby pink kinda gal and I'm pretty obsessed with a bold dark lip at the moment anyway so even if I did dig that frosted metallic look... I still probably wouldn't be getting any use out of it. 

Overall I did like this box and for £10 you really can't argue about its value for money. It's a shame that a couple of items hit a flat note with me (that Anubis face cream is still annoying me because I need more info) but I think that's more down to personal preference then anything else. I'm also aware that Vicky had problems with this box as a couple of brands dropped out last minute and I think she has done an absolute bloody amazing job considering. So hats off to you Vicky if you're reading!
