Here it goes...box contained the following products:
Premae rescue face tonique (30ml sample worth £5.25): This came in a somewhat cheapo looking bottle even though it's not a cheap product to purchase (full size retails at £17.50). It's probably great for oilier skins but it was a while since my ageing skin felt oily so I gave this one away to someone who is still at the right side of 35.
Monu micro exfoliant (30ml sample worth £4.35): Love Monu products and this one promises radiant skin. Yes, please. :)
Paul Mitchell tea tree body bar (soap to you and me)...(35g worth £1.45): Hmmm...Paul Mitchell makes amazing hair products. And I mean AH-MAY-ZING. But this....well...it's a soap. Not a particularly great one either. Sure, it does what it says it'll do, but it doesn't smell particularly nice and it feels a bit harsh too. Maybe it would come in handy for gung-ho manly males who are just too testosterony (yes, it's a new word :D) to use girly things like shower gels, but then again, I can't imagine many manly men who use soap for washing their manly bodies to use anything else than bog standard supermarket soap. All in all, a fail for Paul Mitchell.
Jason lip balm (full size worth £1.99): An affordable product I tried before. It smells really lovely and leaves your lips super soft. However, the texture is rather crumbly and it breaks easily which is not so good.
Sanctuary Spa mask (sachet sample worth £6.30): I HATE sachet samples. They usually hold one; possibly two applications only and it's super hard to to judge any product performance based on one measly application. So while this is a nice luxury product and it certainly felt lovely to apply I have no idea of its effectiveness and whether or not I would buy it again.
The whole box contained £19 worth of products. It was not a particularly good box considering the previous month's awesome box, but it wasn't shockingly bad either.
