Boudoir Prive; October Box

So it's that time of month again, I really can't believe this is the 3rd Boudoir Privé box, how quick does 3 months fly? It's scary! Haha, this month has been an absolute beaut, I think this is my favourite box so far, the samples seem bigger, more relevant and all in all lovely products. It's the first time I've really been over the moon happy about my box, and just as I was beginning to wonder if these boxes were for me, this arrived and won me over!

I can't BELIEVE this box of lovelyness only cost me £10! Such a good deal, and a lot of fantastic products to give a go!

First thing to catch my eye was the Korres Body Butter. Now I'm not going to lie, I love a good body butter, I'm never really without one with my dry skin. This smells so lush and after using it last night I woke up with the softest skin! Definitely a winner and costing £12.50 full size it's probably within budget for a repurchase!

Next is the Studio Makeup Liner Style Pen. I'm pretty sure this is full size and retailing for £12.50, we've already made up the cost of the box and a bit extra! I have been hunting down a good felt tip liner for ages, so this literally couldn't have come at a better time. I can't wait to try this out, I'm really hoping it lives up to my expectations, from what I've swatched it really is BLACK and not a silly grey, so fingers crossed it has good staying power too!

Next are two goodies from Cetuem, who are listed as one of the top 100 beauty brands by Harper's Bazaar (fancy huh?!). I am forever buying face masks, so I can't wait to try out the illuminating mask, and the Créme de lite should be a little treat for my skin used morning and night. Both are said to brighten the skin and eliminate uneven skintones so it should be interesting to see if they live up to it!

Next up a perfume sample, "Siwa" by Memo Paris. Now I never really hold out much hope for perfume samples in these boxes, it's not surprising really when perfume is such a personal thing. However this months offering I actually quite like. It's probably not something I'd repurchase purely because it's REALLY sweet, it's described as "Vanilla revealed by cereal" which as odd as it sounds, it's oddly accurate. You would have to smell it obviously to understand at all, but I'll definitely be slipping this into my handbag!

Next is the Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve. This to me is like a cheaper alternative of the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. It's a multi-use product, soothing chapped lips, dry skin, can be used over lipstick or eye shadow, on brow bones or mixed with a shimmer powder to create a highlight. This sounds so interesting and I'm definitely popping this in my bag, such a handy product to have.

Lastly is the Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme, this intrigued me the most when I opened the box because I literally had no idea what it was! It is a pre-shampoo conditioner that promises to soften and nourish dry and damaged hair. Now with having ridiculously long hair, I'm always up for a bit of haircare so I'll definitely be trying this out!

Overall I'm really happy with this months box. The samples are a better size and definitely products and brands I'm interested and intrigued by, the whole reason I signed up for Boudoir Privé. This company are new and there are going to be ups and downs at first, but I'm hoping now the standards set that this is the way it will be from now on, fingers crossed!
