I always tend to do posts and videos about my first impressions when it comes to beauty boxes with the occasional product sneaking into my skincare or make up routine and then a new box appearing with new bits to try. I thought it would be good to actually stop for a minute or two and have a look at the products I've really loved from the boxes I've received in the past.

So first of all we have an oil! I'm not overly keen on oils as they are always a bit too oily for my liking but I've been using this post manicure on my cuticles and have been loving it! It makes them look perfect and moisturises so well without being too greasy. I have the version with the shimmer but once this is used up I will re purchase the one without the shimmer purely because i don't need the shimmer on my cuticles! As you can see I've made it sit so the shimmer sinks to the bottom. Haha! It has a light scent which is almost floral(?) which is pleasant but not really noticeable.

Next we have the surprising perfume sample! Now I usually turn my nose up at 90% of perfume samples in beauty boxes and have never really liked any I've received before but this scent from Lolita Lempicka is beautiful! Lovely and feminine and perfect for summer, it has notes of raspberry, musk and violet which is amazing! The packaging reminds me of fairy tales which maks me love it even more! Thanks Glossybox!

There has been a lot of hype over this serum from Caudalie and rightly deserved! This serum is lovely, it has a gorgeous grape scent to it (that'll be the grape water haha) and my skin just drinks this stuff up! I get quite dry patches on my nose and I have been using this when my skin is really struggling and it's sorted the next day! Amazing stuff although it did seem to make me break out a little if it got onto my cheeks for some reason.

I think if I remember rightly this came in the Valentines GlossyBox and it didn't really excite me much but I used the day version of it and loved it and slapped a bit of this night cream on when my skin went through a bit of a stroppy phase when it was so dry it was peeling and this cleared it up in a night so top marks from me on this one!  It has quite a weird scent to it which I can't quite put my finger on but it's not un pleasant and it isn't really noticeable when it's sunk it. The texture is lovely, thick and creamy like a night cream should be and I have been really loving this when my skin needs a bit of a moisture boost. As for the firming properties by skin felt "juicier" and more plump after using this but as of yet I have no wrinkles to test it on.

Last but not least we have a Figs & Rouge balm! I'm sure everybody has seen/heard about these and you can pick them up from Boots for under £4. The one I have is rose scented which is beautiful! I really love most rose scented products and this has the most natural smelling rose I have ever inhaled from anything other than an actual rose! The texture is pretty surprising too! I was expecting quite a hard substance but it's actually really quite soft, a bit like putty but once applied it is lovely and balmy. It's beautifully moisturising and can be used pretty much anywhere!

So those are my top 5 beauty box products so far! There are a few others I have really loved but I have spoken about them quite a bit before so didn't want to repeat myself here!
