I was excited to find out that one of the mystery samples is going to be Moroccan Oil, as I do love this brand, but never actually tried their well-known treatment oil, which is a shame for someone who call themselves a ‘beauty blogger’. The February box doesn’t have the ‘wow’ factor that January one had. However, it is still better than one I got in December.

I know that this product is considered to be a bit old-schooled, as it’s been advertised everywhere and you won’t be able to find any beauty guru who didn’t recommend this brand at least once. However, I only tried hydrating mask by Moroccan Oil and it was really good, but the price was to high for me to repurchase the product every now and then, so I switched to less popular, but still very effective brands. This oil is comparable to any other oils in the marker, it’s not better than my current favourite Beauty Protector Agave oil . I have very thick, very dry curly hair, which can be very hard to manage, but when I applied this on my wet hair it makes it manageable and smooth, helps detangle and smells lovely. But again, too pricey for me and cheaper substitutes could be found.
That was the second product I tried by Monu brand, the first one was ‘Recovery balm’ that I’ve received in my November Lookfantastic box. Monu is an ethical skincare brand, they are against animal testing and their products contain no synthetic perfumes or colours. This Illuminating Primer SPF 15 contains zinc oxide for sun protection, plus antioxidant vitamin E, and is paraben free.
I can say that this primer is one of the best I’ve ever used, it visibly improves skin’s condition, covering redness and making the tone more even. It makes my makeup glide on and my skin is flawless. I give it a big thumbs up 🙂 Recommended.
I think this is the third time I receive Korres Citrus Body Milk. And I must say once again – I’m not huge fan of this brand. Apart from the policy and philosophy I couldn’t find anything good about this brand. Yes, it’s paraben-free and very healthy, but for me it’s nothing special and even the design of the products is very ordinary. I would say this body milk is OK, don’t expect too much from it.
Another multipurpose soothing balm in my collection, I think the amount of them now beats the amount of hand creams I received since my first beauty box ever.
Dr.PAWPAW products are made in UK and widely sold in many well-known stores, such as Urban Outfitters and even high-end stores like Harvey Nichols. This multipurpose balm is made from super-duper natural ingredients including paw-paw, to create a unique formula. The main ingredient, fermented PawPaw, boasts natural healing qualities and is said to be one of nature’s finest remedies.
I’ve been using the Original Balm mostly as a lip treatment (as my lips are so dry this Winter) and I also like to massage it into my cuticles at night to help keep them soft. The formula is non greasy and easily absorbed. It has quickly become a staple in my routine now & sits on my bed side table. Recommended.
P.S.: I’ve also read that this thing does miracles with mosquito bites. Need to find couple of mosquitos in UK and attack them in order to check this theory.
Erno Lazslo’s iconic, original cleansing bar is said be perfect when it comes to removing impurities and exfoliating for soft, smooth skin. It contains Dead Sea Mud that helps to dramatically improve the overall quality of the skin. They used to sell this in Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols, Dickens & Jones and Harrods (where Princess Diana used to send her ladies in waiting to pick up her Laszlo products).
However, it is not enough to use this soap bar for a week to see some noticeable results, so I will keep using it as a part of my daily skincare routine and will see if it can really improve my skin or not.
Never heard of this mineral make-up brand before, but I was pleased to get this lip pencil and I liked the shade a lot. It reminded me of the Mac Pencil I use on a daily basis, and it looks exactly the same as many pencils in ‘inspired by Kylie Jenner lips’ tutorials.
