Apologies, I have been so slack with the Parcel Autumn edition. I forgot to take a photo of the outside packaging before I disposed of it. I took way too long to try everything. Then I took even longer to sit down to write about it.
Burt’s Bees – Lip Crayon 100% Natural
I do quite like the few Burts Bees products I have tried & this is no exception. The colour is a good match for me, it looks quite natural. The only let down is it smell quite waxy, like a crayon.
Biore – Baking Soda Scrub
This looks interesting & fun to use. The packaging is fun & easy to use. It smells quite zingy but leaves a bit of a film on your hands & face for a moment. Have you ever hand washed something & your hands feel slimy afterward? It feels like that but it goes away quickly.
Elizabeth Arden – Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet
I think there is way too much liquid to n these caplets. Even after slathering it over my neck & décolletage
La Roche-Posey – Micellar Water Ultra For Reactive Skin
Another micellar water. I’m still using the Nivea one from the winter parcel! I did give this one a try. It seems to work just as good as the other brands I’ve tried. Although I don’t like the wide opening for the top, too much product comes out.
Bioderma – Sebum Pore Refiner
I love how smooth this makes my face feel. If airbrushed had a * this would be it. My face is generally smoother, especially across the larger surface area of my cheeks.
Palmer’s – Cocoa Butter Moisture Rich Night Cream
I’ve sampled this product before & quite like it. It’s a thick, rich cream that smells the same as the other Palmer’s Cocoa Butter products. I think it’s a great cream for intense overnight repair of dry skin.

John Frieda – Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Shampoo & Conditioner
This product surprised me because from what I can tell, everyone gets the same products in their Parcel. But not everyone that receives the Parcel is not blonde, let alone bottle blonde.
Jergens- Hydrating Coconut Lotion
I’ve appreciated each Jergens product that I’ve tried& this one is no different. Later in the day, after applying it in the morning, I got the occasional waft of tropical that takes me a while to place. After a few days, I realized that it was this moisturizer.
Estée Lauder – Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent
Normally when I get perfume in samples boxes I pass them on to my mum as most don’t appeal to me. If I were to describe this to someone I’d say it’s summer, tropical & slightly floral.
