Feel Unique Beauty Box December 2011

I received my second Feel Unique Beauty Box today and thought I would do a review post on it as I am really happy with the box! I was hoping the box would be great as it is the Christmas box and all in all I am really pleased. It is such great value for money and I think I will get use out of all the products included.

Firstly like always it comes in the cute little drawer box which I can't wait to stack up to store all my beauty bits. This box was focusing on finishing touches and although I was hoping for a bit of glitter and sparkle it is definitely full to the brim of great products.

1. Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser - 30ml - approx £3.50
Strangely I was looking at the Clarisonic Cleansing Brushes this morning before the box came through I was really intrigued. I don't normally suffer with bad skin but since working in London every day I have found that I have more break outs and uneven skin tone. I am hoping that even without the brush this cleanser will still help rid my skin of impurities. Luckily it is suitable for sensitive skin too which is great for me as this time of year I get really dry and sore patches on my cheeks and nose :(

2. Figs & Rouge Sweet Geranium Balm - 8ml Full Size - £3.49
I love a good lip balm and at the moment I have 4 different ones in my handbag! This one is 100% organic and has a lovely delicate fragrance of geranium which isn't too floral. The texture is very soft and soothing and was absorbed quickly without feeling sticky. The balm can also be used on face and body so I will definitely be trying it out on any dry patches.

3. Nails Inc. Polish Oxford Circus - 4ml - approx £4.40
I love anything diddy and this polish is no exception. I like Nails Inc. polishes and I think the pastel candy pink colour would look great in a cupcake nail art design or with a matte topcoat. It is a nice little addition to the box.

4. Tigi Bed Head Sugar Dust - 1g Full Size - £9.35
I was a little disappointed at first as there was a very similar Schwarzkopf product in the November box but since I am constantly battling with lack of texture and lift in my hair I am quite pleased to get another product to try. Once again it is a full size product which is great!

5. Annick Goutal Mandragore Eau de Toilette - 25ml - £21.67
I am always a little wary with perfume samples as I don't really wear it. I love that this one by Annick Goutal is 25ml - which is half the size of the full size bottle. The bottle itself is a simple rectangular design in deep pink with a gold lid and gold decoration. It feels expensive and luxurious. The scent itself is really interesting. The card describes it as 'a magical potion' and it definitely has a mysterious edge. It smells spicy and warming and I actually really like it. It is quite potent to when first applied but it mellows down nicely.

6. Living Nature Cleasner, Toning Gel and Day Cream - Samples
As I mentioned before, at this time of year, when the weather is changing on a daily basis I suffer from very dry and sensitive skin. I am constantly on the look out for new products to try and these samples from Living Nature full of Manuka Honey look great.

Approximate Total Cost - £42.41!!!
