I had planed on posting earlier in the week, but life got in the way a little bit (as it often does – am I right?). So now instead of my usual This Week post, I am only going to talk about one thing that I am loving. Plus I really can’t think of much else to be honest.
Toward the end of April (after doing a bit of research) I signed up to receive a monthly Beauty Basket. I must have just missed out on Edition 4, and have been eagerly awaiting Edition 5 ever since. And guess what folks?! It arrived this week! #woohoo
I knew what would be inside my beauty basket, as they published it on their website quite a few weeks ago. I think it’s great value for money and gives you a chance to try some brands you might not otherwise have tried, and to test products you have been thinking about getting. Another reason I chose Beauty Basket over the others that deliver in Australia is the fact that the items are literally delivered in a basket – they are totally re-useable and I like that. The other companies deliver in boxes, and although you can re-use a box, I think the baskets are more visually appealing. You can sign up month-by-month or pay for three or six months upfront. I only signed up for one month, but will totally be signing up again.
So, here is what I got in my basket:
1. Lalisse Moisture Rich Facial Cleanser – Full Size 100ml RRP $11.99
This was a miniature at only 30mls but is enough for quite a few washes. After being used to using a scrub each day, this cleanser was so soft and creamy on my skin. It smells really good, too!
2. DB Cosmetics Kohl Eye Pencil with Sharpener – RRP $6.99
Now I don’t wear eyeliner to work, but I did make an exception this week. This was really easy to apply and lasted the whole day. And, it’s a full size product!
3. Avon Arabian Glow Bronzing Pearls – RRP $19.99
I was most excited for this product, as I have wanted to try bronzing pearls. I gave them a go earlier in the week, and found that my skin showed a natural looking light tan, but obviously the more you apply, the darker it will appear (case in point – today I was a little heavy-handed and ended up looking slightly orange…that’s still cute, right?).
4. Bonne Bell Moisture Repair SPF 15 Lip Balm – RRP $3.99
OMG, this stuff smells and feels divine! I used to be a Strawberry Chap Stick only kind of gal, and have just recently started using a Nivea lip balm, but after trying this Bonne Belle one, I think I am well and truly converted!
5. Avon Genetics Eye Treatment – RRP $59.99
I have used this a few times over the week, although my eyes could definitely use a pep up today! Talk about Zombie. It instantly made my eyes feel fresh and I swear the dark circles under my eyes were much lighter after applying this treatment.
I am super impressed with this edition of Beauty Basket – all my item’s bar one were full size, and I only paid $15.00! They are all products I will use and enjoy, and I will definitely be putting in an order for the next basket. They also sent a wee box of Lindt chocolates, which just happen to be my all-time favourites! Beauty Basket, you are a winner in my books.
