My First Impressions...

This box contains a lot of product!! Two full sized products (lipgloss and lashes), well three if you count the soap which is a big full sized bar (150g) but technically is part of a trio pack. You really do get your moneys worth! I can't say that it would personally be my ideal box because I never wear eyelashes and dont use bars of soap - I prefer liquid soaps and shower gels as I find them less drying but the soap will get used by my family and I will have a try out at the lashes (love the packaging btw its supercute and retro)...maybe my cousins wedding.

Personally I'm not too keen on the scent of Kim K perfume. I'm not going to attempt to describe it because I'm rubbish at describing and tbh with perfumes you just have to go and try them for yourself right?! But for me it was abit too strong, I prefer more sweet and citrus scents but I did like the size and the fact it was rollerball...perfect handbag size that will actually last you more than your average 2 skwirts. The KK perfume came with a 40% off code if you purchase from here so if you do want to buy it just use the code KKSS12 for your discount.

I'm looking forward to trying out the Snowberry samples. I hadnt heard of them before but I noticed they are a New Zealand brand. The product look like they contain lots of natural and exotic ingredients so I hope they are good! They were certainly packaged very sweetly in a cute pink organza bag..I'm a sucker for cute things!

I have to say I love the Inika lipgloss!! It feels gorgeous, has a very subtle hint of orange soda (whooooooo loves orange soda???? #keenan&kel) and I'm so happy that I got the peach colour! Loving peaches and coral tones at the moment and as tangerine is Sephora's colour of the year it's kinda apt too...ok so I know we dont have Sephora in the UK but I'm sure alot of us still keep and eye on them as they are so huge and are a big influence in the industry.

So overall....very happy with this month's box :-)

  2. Green People & Inika are lovely brands. Never heard of Snowberry I checked out the website, I love the company ingredient policy (no chemicals!). I love Aussie & Kiwi skincare.

    1. yeah me too! Lots of natural ingredients! I guess its because they has such rich land and lots of sunshine so these lovely natural plants are more easily available to them. Thanks for stopping by!xx

  5. Hi, just found your blog and am following you now! Love the colour of that gloss and the packaging on the lashes and the Snowberry samples are fab! Can't say I'd have any interest in smelling like KK though! This seems like really good value for what you get! :-)

    1. Thanks so much CeeCee!! (totally thinking of New Girl right now!) Yeah the KK is not for me either but they rest are great! :-)

  6. the lipgloss does look pretty and flattering! :D
