November Boudoir Privé Beauty Box

This is my first Boudoir Privé beauty box so I was super eager to receive it this month. It arrived this morning.

As I always mention, I absolutely love the concept. It's like getting a box full of miniature presents every month. Who doesn't like getting presents?... Oh, the Helena Rubinstein quote above made me el oh el... Here's what was inside:

1. RAHUA Voluminous Shampoo (£27.00 - 275ml) & Conditioner (£28.50 - 275ml) 
2.VINIES AYURVEDA'S SOUL Luminous Skin Mask (£32.85 - 40gm)
3. DEAD SEA SPA MAGIK Silky Smooth Body Lotion (£7.70 - 350ml)
4. STUDIO MAKEUP Rich Hydration Lipstick (£12.25 each)
5. KORRES Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisuriser (£19 - 40ml)

I'm very strict about the shampoo and conditioner I use on my natural hair so I'll be giving this one of my friends to test it out for me. It's a shame, because I would have loved to have tried it myself. 
Guys, I'm not going to lie. This looks a little gross. Luckily, it smells OK. It's got an incense fragrance to it and is made with the "finest ingredients", including mint leaf, licorice root and magnolia extract. Despite how it looks, I'm really eager to try this tonight. 
I'm always on the lookout to try new body lotions so was chuffed to see this inside, especially as I've heard very good things about the Dead Sea therapeutic and cosmetic properties. 

The Studio Makeup lipstick is by far my favourite item inside. Being dark-skinned, I'm always very weary about red lipstick. If you remember, I did a post on red lipsticks that suit black women (read it >> here) and came to realise that plum reds suit my skin tone the best. Now, when I saw red lipstick in the box, I had mixed emotions. However, as soon as I swatched it on the back of my hand, I instantly, to much relief, knew it would suit me! Yay! It's gorgeous. Oh and I'm totally loving the undercover-agent-esque way it opens.

This face moisturiser has got vitamin C, grape seed and phytic acid in it and "helps repair fine lines and uneven skin tone". I thought "Great!" because I'm a gazillion shades of brown (not that I'm complaining). 

I'll be trying these products out over the coming week so watch out for my YouTube in-depth review on them. Really happy about my first box.
