FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF PRODUCTS
Schick Hydro Silk Razor:
I love these Razors already. They always make your skin feel nice and silky because of the moisterising strip. This product was a winner for me!
Garnier Miracle Skin Cream:
This was my first time trying this product and I like it since it's quiet light on application and has a nice scent. Although towards the end of the day my skin was slightly oily.
Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate:
Love it! If your skin is a bit dull and needs a boost I recommend this. In fact I think I might start buying this again.
Mor Modern Apothecary Soap:
I haven't tried this yet since I don't really use soap but I can tell you it smells amazing!
Loccitane Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream
This has a nice consistency and isn't too greasy. It smells alright too but I don't know if it's my imagination but it slightly reminds me of sunscreen! Let me know what you think too?
Rimmel BB Cream:
I tested this on my hand and it blends really nicely and smoothly. I won't use this on my face as the shade is medium and I am fair. However when I fake tan I like to use BB cream's to mask my fake tan mishaps especially on my legs. lol.
Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes:
Always a fan of these. Very cleansing without drying the skin out.
Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara:
I loved this mascara. It has a neat little wand which is perfect for getting into the corners of your eyes and the lower lash line. It also made my eyelashes look nice and plump!
So far The Parcel is the best beauty subscription I have tried. It is definitely great value for money and you receive a good variety of products. This edition even contained 6 full sized beauty products which is a bonus in my eyes.
