Boudoir Prive; November Box!

So after last months beautiful box, I was expecting good things for this months installment, I practically mugged the postman for this beautifully packaged box of treats, but guaranteed with these beauty boxes, each month is a risk, and this box just isn't really my cup of tea. Of course I'm keeping my subscription etc, the problem is just that some months are going to suit better than others, this one just isn't really for me!

I must admit, I was a little disappointed that two of the brands featured in this months box were also a feature in last months. I joined this service to discover new beauty brands and try different things, and although I loved both my Studio Makeup eyeliner and Korres body butter from last month, I still was a little gutted to see the brands in this months box.

First up is Rahua Voluminous Shampoo and Conditioner. Now I am admittedly a hair product junkie, so these get my vote straight away. I love trying new products, and though there is no way I'd ever be able to afford (and even if I could I still wouldn't) a shampoo for just under £30, it's still a nice little treat to my hair! Really looking forward to trying these!

Next is the Studio Makeup Rich Hydration Lipstick. These retail at £12.25 each and promise to be both creamy and hydrating, a must if like me you suffer dry lips! The only problem with this is, it's really not my kind of shade. Tender Pink is a shimmery light pink colour, and it's just not the kind of colour I'd ever reach for, which is really a shame because these lipsticks sound really good! 

Next is a luminous skin mask which has featured on and retails for a whopping £32.85 (I think I'll stick to buying ones for a quid in superdrug but whatever floats your boat!). Now I opened this and gave it a cheeky sniff in the morning, and I'm definitely not a morning person. The smell of this made me literally gag, it's absolutely vile. I can't even describe it, It's just disgusting, made only worse by the really unappealing brown colour it is. There's no way in hell this is ever going anywhere near my face, bit of a shame especially as they popped two samples in but what can you do!

Next is a body lotion from Dead Sea Spa Magic, a name that automatically appeals to me. This promises to leave your skin feelings deeply hydrated, I can't wait to give this a go seeing as my skin has gotten really dry recently, and a really decent size sample so I'm happy!

Finally a Korres Moisturiser. I'll definitely try this out, but as I said before I'm a bit disappointed that two consecutive months I've had a moisturiser from the same brand. The sample size isn't as big this month, but I'll give it a fair go and who knows, I might end up loving it!

So that's everything for this month, I'm not overly impressed but with these beauty boxes it's never going to suit completely every month, but I have discovered some really nice products so far so I'll let this month pass by, and hope I get a gorgeous box in time for christmas!


  1. I got a red lipstick instead, they gave out two lipstick shades that would be either hit or miss for people, bit odd really.

    I thought this box was ok, hope the Christmas box is good!

  2. I got a GlossyBox this month and it also has a Dead Sea Spa product (I got a face mask). It is a little hit and miss.. shame about the product not smelling nice! The lippy looks like a good product though :) xo

  3. I got the same as you but my lipstick was red! XX
