The Body Shop – Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask
I was expecting a thick cream-like mask however it was quite runny. There were chunks of what appeared to be seaweed, which I found odd. Overall it left my face feeling smooth & clean.
Nude by Nature – Natural Mineral Cover
This is my favourite product from this parcel. The shade is a tad dark for me at the moment but will be great for summer. It can be a little hard to blend if there is too much on the brush. I think this is the most natural looking foundation I have ever used.
Nuxe Huile Prodigiuese – Multi Purpose Dry Oil for Face, Body & Hair
I actually sampled the Huile Prodigieuse Or in the November 2014 BellaBox. I’ve actually still got it, I should pull it out & start using it!
Maybelline – The Nudes Pallette
This palette is almost identical to my Urban Decay Naked palette. Although the colours appear to be more matte than shimmery. I don’t think I will open this or keep it.

St Tropez – Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse + Applicator Mitt
I rarely use fake tan but I have heard St Tropez is the best of hte best. Now I know why. Firstly, for fake tan, it smells great. It was so easy to apply, you don’t need to use much & it dries incredibly fast. I’m a bit surprised to see that the Bronzing Mousse doesn’t come in a variety of shades, just classic & dark.
As for the mitt, it looks the same as the one I got off eBay for $1.
CLAB & CO- Coffee & Coconut Scrub
I haven’t actually tried a coffee scrub before. I wish I could eat this. It smells & looks like the ingredients for coffee & coconut bliss balls. It left my skin lightly moisturised & smooth. The shower base was a bit slippery from the oil & I am a bit concerned about what prolonged use will do to the plumbing.
Narciso Rodriguez – For Her eau de toilette
I haven’t bothered to wear much perfume lately, I keep forgetting. Somehow, I don’t think I will be wearing this one though. I can’t pick what it smells like. After some searching on the Narciso Rodriguez website, I found a description of the scent. I guess I don’t like musk, which features heavily along with rose, peach & amber.
Sunsense – Sensitive Invisible SPF 50+
This small sample managed to cover my face, neck, arms, chest & the top of my back. I wasn’t able to test it in water but for the 2 or so hours I was in the sun I was well protected.
Essano – Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner
I am surprised by how much both the shampoo & conditioner smell like perfume. Not just any perfume either. Strong, overpowering, old lady perfume. Nevertheless I will still use them. I also wish the lid had a smaller hole to make it easier to get the product out.
