Carmine January Box

I was annoyed when I received this yesterday morning. I had meant to order the February box but opted for the January one by mistake. Luckily I managed to get it for half price anyway. My first impression was that it looked very professional with the black box but it doesn't look as exciting as the Glossyboxes. It's what's on the inside that counts though, right? Here's what I got:

Balance Me Radiance Face Oil - I'm always pleased to get moisturising products in beauty boxes as I have really dry skin. There's a rollerball in this bottle to help you apply the oil which is pretty handy as it means you don't get a lot out at once and waste it, it is hard to see how much is actually coming out though. I've been applying this underneath my moisturiser and I don't know if it's making a difference but it can't hurt to try!

Korres Wild Rose 24 hour Moisturising & Brightening Cream - I've heard a lot of good things about Korres so I was excited to see this moisturiser in the box. It has a really pleasant but not overpowering smell and it also feels really luxurious. I'm going to wait until I've finished up my Clarins samples before I start on this.

Eldora False Eyelashes - I've never heard of Eldora before but I love false eyelashes so I will definitely be trying these out. I love how they're not too dramatic and are also reusable.

Westlab Himalayan Bath Salts - I was pleased to see these in the box as I love bath products, especially bath salts. I'll be trying these out the next time I get a chance to have a long soak.

Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Black - I was pleased to get another Eyeko product, especially as these retail at £10. However, I was very disappointed when I saw what colour I'd got. I'm never going to use it as I just don't suit black eyeshadow at all. I had a look on the website and I would have preferred the 'Old Gold' shade.

I'm glad that I didn't pay the full price of £10 for this box. I will probably subscribe for another month and see what the next box is like because it is just luck of the draw really. What did you think of this month's box? What is your favourite beauty box?


  1. Love the look of the eye stick & lashes!

  2. Not a bad box, I would have liked the Eyeko Fat Stick!

  3. You got some lovely stuff, :) xx

  4. i love your nails! just saw them in the post below also ,xo

  5. Be sure to take a photo and point out when your wearing those eyelashes I always try different ones so will good to see how these look. Also I love the eyeko stick but i agree with you old gold looks better. Iv never had one of these boxes I think sometimes there a little over priced x
