Boudoir Prive August Box

I didn't get on so well with Glossybox so cancelled my subscription in the end. I found out about Boudoir Prive from Fee and decided to subscribe and see how it compared.

A similar shade of pink but the box actually opens differently. Instead, the lid is magnetized instead of a box. Inside is a little personalized card and a little leaflet about all the products. This includes how to use the products and prices. It also has little "give me to a friend" tokens so they can get their first box half price. If anyone wants one of mine I'm happy to email the code to you, just leave a comment.

So in the August box you get 6 samples, one of each: bodycare, make-up, hair care, lifestyle and skin care.
I haven't tried any of these brands or products before!

Olavie Antioxidant Body Butter - This smells great, reminds me of shampoo and conditioner. Quite unusual for a body butter but I like it. A large sized sample of this too.

Jane Iredale PureLash Extender and Conditioner - This looks a small sample but as it's a mascara base it'll last a long time. Haven't tried a product like this before so intrigued in how it'll work.

Sachajuan Hair Repair - I really like trying out new deep conditioners and treatments. I think this is a full sized product. Not so keen on the scent but I'm still going to give it a go.

Bloom Green Tea & White Tea Duo - I love green tea and haven't tried white tea, especially full leaf teas.

Babor HSR Lifting Extra Firming Cream - Think I might pass this expensive little treat to my mum.

Etat Libre D'orange Like This & Rien perumes - Like This reminds me of a perfume my mum either has or used to have, really nice and warm. Rien on the other hand, I really don't like. Bit of a old women scent I'm afraid.

Over all I'm quite impressed with this months box and am excited to see what's in Septembers box. For only £10 it's a perfect way to try out new products and brands that you may not have heard of or tried before.
