Before I start telling you how disappointing this box is, I have another thing to complain about: they changed my delivery guy:)) My first boxes were delivered by a very nice gentleman around lunch, right before going to work. This one and the Birchbox arrived at 9 A.M, the horror! Now, maybe this one is a nice gentleman as well, but at 9 A.M I don`t work well with people. So please, bring my boxes after 10 A.M., if you don`t want to be welcomed by a Walking Dead extra member. Now that we covered this problem, let`s move to the box…I`ll start with the only product I like, then move to the others:
- Neal & Wolf Ritual Daily Cleansing Shampoo (full-size sample 250 ml, 11.50 pounds)
,, Ritual is a shampoo designed to cleanse the hair, leaving it fresh, full of shine and ready for styling. An infusion of silk and milk proteins combine to boost vital moisture and reduce flyaway hair. Liquid shea extract delivers brilliant shine. The result? Luxurious, easy-to-manage, radiant locks.“
I`m seriously in love with this product. First of all, it smells amazing, I`m a big fan of sweet scents, so that`s a big win. The texture is almost like a gel, so I`m very curious to see how it will perform on my oily hair. Also, it`s a full sample product and on its own is more than the box, so hooray for that!
- Models Own Nail Polish in Fuzzy Peach (full-size sample, 5 pounds)
Straight from the card: ,, stay on-trend right down to the tips of your toes. Models Own nail polishes glide on smoothly and are hardwearing and long lasting. Brighten up your fingertips with ,,Fuzzy peach“ this Spring and Summer.“
I have mixed feeling about this product. Maybe it`s because in this boxes I expect to find new products, that you can`t find in every drugstore. Also, the shade isn`t for me. I`m quite pale, so I like to use colourful nail polishes, to look more alive (and funky). But again, it`s a full-size sample, so that`s a Yay.
- Betty Hula Secret Wonder Oil Roller Ball (full-size sample 10 ml, 6.25 pounds)
The claims: ,,This newest addition to the Betty Hula range is a highly versatile and great smelling moisturising oil. Suitable for all skin types, it boosts the skin`s natural moisture barrier to promote radiance, whilst the roller ball works to encourage circulation through gentle massage.“
I don`t know if I`ll use this one. First of all, I`m not a fan of commercial oils. I adore argan and coconut oils, but the pure versions, not the cosmetic brands ones. (sorry if I don`t make much sense, damn you delivery at 9 A.M.) Also, I`m not too keen on the smell either. It`s somewhat floral, but it comes a bit too strong for my tastes. What I found cool was the design, the roller ball would indeed massage the skin and encourage circulation. Actually, to show I`m open-minded I will give it a try. Preferably in the evenings, when I don`t have to go out anymore. (and people can`t smell this)
- Redken Colour Extend Conditioner (25 ml sample)
,, A conditioner for colour treated hair to resurface the cuticle for a smooth, vibrant finish. Detangles and provides protection from fading agents while restoring colour vibrancy.“
I would have loved this one…if I had coloured hair. Again, I`m a big fan of the smell. I also read very good reviews about this brand, but I haven`t tried it before. I will actually use this one, even though it`s not for my hair type and hopefully, it will work.
I also got 2 samples from Weleda Stretch Mark Massage Oil and 25 pounds gift card at Hello Fresh, which I`m quite curious to try.
Conclusion: A very poor box, compared to the last month`s one. But I guess it`s all about tastes. I loved the previous box while other bloggers hated it. So maybe they will like this one more than me. For me, the only star is the Neal&Wolf Shampoo, but considering its price is the same as the price of the box, it`s still a good deal.
