One Off Beauty Box - DECEMBER 18
It's Party Time!
Have we got a selection to jingle your bells this month (note, Shortbread NOT included!)
Okay, I'll stop with the Christmas silliness, but really, these products are great. They're all about glamour and looking fabulous so let's dive right in!
BLAQ FACE MASK (15ML / £6.95) Well, if you're going out, you need to give skin a little help and this face mask is fantastic. It works with bamboo and charcoal, to draw out impurities in the skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes, let it dry, then peel it off in an upwards direction. Wash off any remnants of the mask with warm water and a flannel to leave skin looking fantastic.
STUDIO10 YOUTH LIFT GLOWPLEXION (15ml / £26.00) is also in this box to give you choices. Not everyone loves a full face of make up so this has four different uses. It's an all-in-one primer, radiance crème, illuminator and highlighter so use it under foundation, on it's own all over or on cheeks or eyes, it's totally up to you. As a primer, it's a great base to even out skin and as a highlighter, it's just a soft draw on the eye to make your skin look amazing.
BELLAPIERRE LIQUID GOLD (15ML / £30.00) brand new for this season, I love this product! It is full on gold in a tube and I've been using it as eye shadow. Deeply pigmented, it gives a gold shimmer wherever you want it. I use a couple of layers to really bring out the depth of the gold, but you can use it on shoulders, cheeks or decolletage as well. It's much stronger as a shimmer than Glowplexion - you'll see the difference when you use it.
MAVALA NAIL POLISHES IN LONDON, AROSA AND CAIRO (£4.75 EACH) so there are three of these lovelies. To be honest, I just couldn't choose between them but the great thing about Mavala polishes is that they are small bottles. In short, you'll run out before the thing gets sticky and too gloopy to use.
London is a traditional Christmas red, Arosa is a nude so that it'll see you through to January (or you just might like a softer look on your nails) and Cairo is a full on bronze/gold, because it's that time of year. You can always hang onto Cairo until summer as we're all more adventurous on colour for pedicures than for mani's and gold looks great on toes. So, the choice is all yours.
JAMES READ COCONUT WATER TAN MIST (200ML /£25.00) is a really soft way to tan. When I'm going out, sometimes I just want a bit of colour on legs or arms/shoulders without the full hassle of fake tan creams. This mister helps you develop a tan in 3-5 hours, that lasts 4-5 days. It's packed with coconut water to nourish and a soft coconut fragrance that makes you feel like you're off to the Caribbean for the New Year with Simon Cowell and the jet setters!
So that's our Christmas selection worth over £102.00! Oh yes, and a tiny bit of cheer from us, we've included a Hotel Chocolat mini Christmas Cracker. We haven't opened one yet so we don't know if there's more than one choc in it and we suspect that if you have any allergens (dairy, nuts) it's better to give it a miss, but the thought is there!
Finally, we wish you a wonderful Christmas, thank you for all your support in 2018 and here's to a fantastic 2019 when we will be launching some major new initiatives, which we hope you will love!
