Pink Parcel – November 2016

The November Pink Parcel was partnered with Look Magazine, so in addition to all of the beauty products (and of course a month’s worth of tampons!), subscribers also received a copy of the Look Magazine. How amazing does J-Law look on that cover?! I am constantly impressed with Pink Parcel – you definitely get well more than £10.50 worth of products every month! This month saw a great range of goodies – let’s get straight into discovering the products!

One of the first things I reached for was the Carnaby and Cross Gemmotherapy Face Mask. How better to treat yourself at that time of month than pop on a relaxing and indulgent sheet mask!? The face mask itself I was extremely impressed with and would definitely use it again. It was an extremely large sheet mask, meaning it fit my face well, fitted the contours of my face and stuck to the skin like a second skin, too. It was absolutely saturated in serum, so you really do get an intense, deep hydration. There was even some serum left in the packaging to massage into my neck afterwards! This was a brilliant product to start off this month’s Pink Parcel!

The Korres Bergamot Pear Body Milk definitely looks pretty on a bathroom shelf – that’s a given. It also smells absolutely divine! It smoothes and hyrdates your skin without leaving it sticky or wet – surprising seeing as it is a fairly wet milk itself. This is one of the more luxurious body moisturisers I own, and I just know I’m going to be gutted when it runs out.

Oh how I love it when subscription boxes just seem to KNOW what I love! The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor is one of my long time fave budget hair treats, as it deeply conditions your hair and leaves it beautifully smooth and shiny, and Batiste tropical dry shampoo is a LIFESAVER for a busy working woman like myself – spritz a tad on and your hair looks freshly washed! Both are in handy little travel size, too – perfect to pop in my gym bag or in a carry on!

Nails Inc is definitely a brand I have a love/hate relationship with, but I must say that I have been fairly impressed with this shadeWhitehall. Dubbed ‘The New White‘, a subtle hint of pink gives a delicate, feminine touch (and matches SO well with my phone and Apple Watch!). It’s not too bad on chipping – without a top coat, you’ll get a couple of days wear out of it, but with a good top coat you are looking at around a week chip free as long as you’re not doing anything too strenuous. Actually, as I type this, I’m reminded I need to go and paint my nails – Nails Inc I’m coming for ya!

Who doesn’t love a good velvet finish liquid lipstick? These little fellas have taken the world by storm and I absolutely love to grow my collection, so of course I was a very happy bunny when I pulled this Ciate Mini Liquid Velvet Lipstick in shade ‘Diva’ out of my Pink Parcel.  It glides on your lips so smoothly, stays perfect for hours, doesn’t smudge and has the perfect creamy matte, velvety finish. ERGH. I LOVE it! Plus, you can’t get much better a bold lip than a deep, bright red, can you?!

As always, there was some edible goodies in the box, too. The Strawberry Mylk flavoured Ombar bar was a deliciously dark, healthy chocolate with a sweet strawberry zing throughout. One word – delicious! The Drink Me Chai Spiced Chai Latte however, I was not a massive fan of. I know some people rave about chai lattes, but for me, it just didn’t do the trick. It had such a weird texture and flavour that I just couldn’t get used to.

Shop the box –


Overall, this was another top notch box from the Pink Parcel gang – a fab variety of products and plenty of goodies to distract me from the pains and woes of *that* time of month.

Let me know if there are any beauty boxes you think I’d like in the comments below – I’m always on the look out for new ones!
