Feel Unique Beauty Box – February

Clockwise – Philip Kingsley Maximizer // Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Hand and Body Wash // Jean Paul Gaultier Kokorico // Decleor Phytopeel Natural Exfoliating Cream // Nuxe Multi Use Dry Oil with Golden Shimmer // Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Pink Diamond

This is my first Beauty Box from Feel Unique, I’ve been super excted about this for ages after seeing how good some of the bast boxes have been so I had high expectations for this little box!

I love the box itself, it’s a little semi matt black pull out draw with a hot pink interior and a little purple ribbon as a handle. I love a good box. The products are sitting in a little nest of shredded black paper which is so sleek and lovely. I can think of so many uses for this so top marks packaging wise.

The products themselves look as though they are going to be good but nothing really grabbed me straight away. I haven’t heard of anything before apart from the Philip Kingsley Maximizer and I am always up for trying new things.

Right, so on to the contents! I was a bit put off by the colour of the Elemis hand and body wash, it reminds me of iodine for some reason!? It smells like something my Grandad would use but I will try it and see how it goes. Can’t knock it ’til I try it can I! I would have prefered it to not smell of ginger though.

The Jean Paul Gaultier fragrance I actually had to seal into a bottle and throw away because the smell was SO not my cup of tea and people in the house were complaining. I would probably insist my boyfriend washed immediately if he wore this. The design was really nice and attractive though but the writing was a little hard to read at first.

The Decleor Exfoliator I’m excited about as I have run out of exfoliator and this looks lovely and creamy although the smell isn’t that pleasant but you can’t always have it all, right? I think my sense of smell is really sensitive or something!

The Nuxe Dry Oil looks interesting, I love the idea of the golden shimmer too although I would have preferred an opaque bottle because I don’t like things that look similar to the colour of iodine. Don’t know why, maybe I’m just weird.

The Leighton Denny polish looks so pretty, it has a gorgeous girly iridescent pinky colour which I love. I don’t usually go for anything shimmery these days, it’s either glittery or plain so this will make a nice change.

Overall I’m pretty pleased with the contents although not so much with their scents. Will let you know how I get on which these beautys.

What did you think of this months box?

    OOooh I adore Elemis, their Skin Nourishing body lotion is amazing, not great smelling but not gross either and obvs being Elemis it's pricey but ooh I love it, haven't tried this Ginger body wash so I'd love to hear your views on it once you've tried it out for a bit!
