Pink Parcel March 2017

I was thrilled with my first Pink Parcel back in February. If you haven’t read my review on it you can check it out here! So I decided to keep my subscription to the service, as what girl doesn’t deserve a little pick me up each month?

I received my March Pink Parcel around a week ago and was so excited to open it and see what goodies were inside. I was pleasantly surprised again with the selection of beauty bits, accessories and sweets.

As with every box you receive a top up supply on your choice of either sanitary towels or tampons. I didn’t realise how handy this actually was until the last two months since I subscribed to Pink Parcel. I think everyone can relate to the panic of not having one handy or running out completely!

The first thing that caught my eye was the cute pin from ‘Lapel Yeah’ . It says “Happy Everything”. I love the colour and think it will jazz up a jacket or bag! I’ve got a few Disney Pins on my gym bag so it will fit in perfectly.

I love having a big selection of lipsticks so I was thrilled to see a full size of Rimmel’s new ‘The Only 1’ lipstick in this months parcel. I fell in love with the colour and thought it was the right timing with Spring just around the corner. The shade I received was ‘120 You’re All Mine’ which is a gorgeous pop of pink. I tested it out and found it very pigmented and moisturising.

I feel like Pink Parcel know me too well- with last month sending me my favourite peppermint tea- as this month they included a little sachet of ‘Kneipp Bath Crystals Cold Season in Eucalyptus. This was perfect timing as I was on the brink of a nasty cold so this helped me feel so much better.

I’m not a coffee fan, however I wish I was as I love the concept of this next gift, as it is a coffee bag! Yes just like a tea bag but for coffee. It is by ‘London Coffee Bag’  and they specialise in gourmey coffee on the go.

I also received some lovely toiletries this month; a little sample-size of Dove’s new ‘Advanced Hair Series’ range, the Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo, and a lovely smelling ‘Boozi Bodycare’ Cheeky Woo Woo Body Wash sample.

A little packet of the ‘Beauty Papier- Green Tea Blotthing Paper’ was included in the parcel as well. I love the bright leaf print on the packaging! I’ve never actually used blotting paper as I find my skin is dry and I don’t get too much excess oil throughout the day, but I may find these useful during the summer or if I’m on holiday.

Last but not least, I received a treat size ‘Maza Chocolate’ bar- just perfect!

Mini Boots Makeup Haul

Today I had to nip into town to return a few things, and I decided to pop into Boots to have a look around. They had a few really good offers on makeup, and they’re were a few things that I needed  ok, wanted.. as well as one or two things that caught my eye while I was browsing, so I took advantage of the offers!

First of all, I picked up two Barry M Nail Paints. It was 2 for £6 on selected  Barry M nail varnishes. The first colour that I really liked is the ‘Gelly Hi Shine’ in ‘Sugar Plum’, I thought it was a very pretty colour to brighten up gloomy January. The second one I picked up was one from they’re new Manicure range. I got the ‘Mani Mask Camouflage, Colour and Condition’ in ‘Birthday Suit Nude’. I’m not one to always have a bright colour on my nails but I like the look of a french pink or top coat on my nail.

I recently misplaced my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge so I thought I’d get another one as I absolutely love it, I use it almost everyday. I think it make my complexion look so smooth and almost air brushed. My skin is super dry and eczema prone so this sponge is really gentle.

It was also buy one get one half price on Rimmel products so I picked up 4 products. I’m a big fan of the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, however I’m trying to head away from wearing foundation every day. So I thought I’d try the Rimmel Radiance BB Cream. I got the shade ‘light’. It feels so light on my face and looks very natural. I also picked up a ‘Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eye Liner’ in Nude. I thought this would be good for lining the waterline to make my eyes look bigger and more awake!

I admit that my lipstick collection is far too big already but I picked up two lip products. The first one I got was the ‘Lasting Finish Colour Rush Balm’ in ‘Not An Illusion’, I thought this balm would be good as like most people my lips get very dry in the Winter yet I still want to have a bit of colour on my lips. Rimmel has recently brought out the ‘Only 1 lipstick’ I thought it sounded quite good as it promises lasting colour and moisture. I got the colour ‘700 Naughty Nude’. I’ll report back on how good it is!
