Dollibox January

I've been stepping out of my comfort zone a lot lately, experimenting with new products, brands and techniques. I was contacted by the lovely team at Dollibox who asked me if I would like to receive one of their monthly subscription beauty boxes to try. Dollibox is a monthly subscription service that costs only £10.00 plus P&P of £3.90, you receive 6 fantastic products which can total the value of nearly £60.00. The beauty box is delivered directly to your front door, giving you the chance to try brands that you may not of heard of yet, as well as containing some well known brands in there too. 

I was lucky enough to receive the January edition of Dollibox which has a total value of £70.00 and the products inside are some really fab ones, I am excited to see what the future months boxes contain now!

The first item that caught my eye inside the box is the ModelCo PowerLash Mascara which is a full size long wear black mascara with a super amazing wand. This mascara claims to give you fuller, longer lashes in just one coat which is exactly what I look for in my mascara. I am a little disappointed that the mascara isn't waterproof as usually I have to opt for the waterproof version of any mascara, but I am looking forward to giving this a go. 

Next there are a set of beautiful eyelashes by Invogue, a brand I have never heard of before but absolutely love the look of their products, these lashes are so pretty and fluttery! These particular eyelashes are handmade, lightweight and easy to apply which ticks all of the boxes. I'm not the best when it comes to applying false eyelashes but these look like they will be super easy to apply with their super slim band and lightweight texture.

The last makeup item in the box is the Pixi Lip Blush, again a full size product with a value of £12.50. I hear many good things about Pixi products but I just haven't got round to trying any yet therefore this is a great way for me to be introduced to the brand. The Lip Blush is in the shade _____ which gives a beautiful subtle hint of colour to the lips, without being overpowering or too bright. I really like this and I think it will be a product that ends up in my handbag quite regularly! 

Moving onto skincare, the first item is the Anubis Barcelona Red Fruit Scrub, this is a mini sample size but you actually get quite a lot of product in here plus you only need to use a small amount. My favourite thing about this scrub is its moisturising properties, it makes my skin feel so soft and nourished after use and because its packed full of amazing ingredients such as pomegranate, strawberry and blueberry, it means it smells amazing too. My bathroom truly smells like a spa when I use this! The scrub also claims to encourage skin renewal without causing irritation. 

Another skincare item inside this Dollibox is the Clarity Cleanse I'm Oil of a Glow Serum Moisturising Oil (what a mouthful!), again this is just a sample size but a pretty good sample size, definitely enough to be able to give a decent review of the product. I absolutely love facial serums and oils, I have always suffered with dry, dehydrated skin therefore anything moisturising or hydrating just screams my name. This particular oil is made of 100% organic oils and is 100% vegan and cruelty free. It claims to brighten the skin, add moisture, even out fine lines and wrinkles as well as leaving your skin feeling nourhsied and plump. This product sounds like my dream product and so far I'm really enjoying it, I love the texture and how it sinks into my skin instantly, leaving my skin feeling refreshed and super soft.

Lastly inside the box is a full size FabLittleBag which is a very useful little thing to have for us ladies, its basically a tiny bag for tampon disposal that is environmentally friendly and stops you from potentially blocking toilets with any tampon related products. I think this is a great idea and I'll definitely be using it when mother nature calls! 

Have you heard of Dollibox before? You can pick one up directly from Dollibox, a great way to try new brands and products without breaking the bank.
