The Parcel Spring 2016

//The Parcel Spring 2016

The Parcel Spring 2016I have been so slack in getting The Parcel Spring review organised. I’ve waited for ages to try most of the products and now that I am watermarking my photos it seems like such a chore.

FACE

the-body-shop-himalayan-charcoal
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
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
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.

BODY

st-tropez-classic-bronzing-mousse
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-and-co-coffee-scrub
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.

mor-body-milk
MOR – Mon Amie Adele Luminous Body Milk

The lid had come loose on this & transfered some shimmer to the other products. But when I put it on my body you barely notice the shimmer.

Narciso-Rodriguez-for-her
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-spf50
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
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.
