Inside the box are (L-R)
Toni & Guy Glamour - Firm Hold Hair Spray - 75ml (RRP £6.39 for 250ml)
Alex chose this hairspray because it keeps hair in place without stickiness or dullness. I love that it's the perfect size to put in your handbag or overnight bag, and doesn't have that old-lady hairspray smell!
Eyeko Lash Curlers (RRP £12)
Eyelash curlers are an essential in my book - using them will help to open up your eye and give you a full on fluttery look. I'd never tried the Eyeko ones before - the combo of the big gap to fit your lashes and the big velvety handles makes them easy to use. Plus they come with two spare rubber pieces so these will really last you a while.
Maybelline Baby Lips - Mint Fresh (RRP £2.99)
These are *the* thing for softening your lips at the moment, I've done a whole blog post on them (here) - in this weather a lip balm in essential, and this will do the job nicely.
HD Brows - Eye & Brow Palette - Foxy (RRP £19.96)
I already own one of these and use it in my makeup kit - it's a great little brow palette that you can also use as an eyeshadow palette. Its really versatile and can be used for auburn to light brown to dark haired people as a brow palette, or really lovely neutral browns as eyeshadow, perfect for daytime and smokey eyed looks.
Balance Me - Extra Care - Radiance Face Oil - 10ml (RRP £15)
Another great sized product for whipping in your bag, Alex says this is the "perfect rescue and repair for partied-out, sleep-deprived skin" that will leave your skin nourished, conditioned and glowy. It's 100% natural and comes with a rollerball applicator so you don't get oil all over the place. A really genius product for radiant skin.
Philip Kingsley - One More Day 50ml
This is a life saver when getting in late from parties straight to work the next day and need that extra time in bed without having to do your hair.... a quick spritz from this dry shampoo and you go from limp to lovely. It can also be used to add texture to your hair when you want to create volume or backcomb. It's one of Alex's desert island essentials - that's good enough for me!
Benefit - They're Real Mascara - 3g (RRP £18.50 for 19.5g)
This is a best selling mascara, which in tests 90% saw dramatic length and volume, 90% saw base-to-tip curl, 94% saw visible lift and 100% saw long-wearing results. I bought this when it first came out, and remember the lady in Boots demo-ing it over the mascara I already had on, and I was amazed at how much fuller my lashes looked! I hadn't tried it again since that first tube, so this is a really nice way to try out a mascara with the mini version.
As you can see, the box contents are worth a lot of money - they are really generously sized samples, many being full sized, and was nice to see the box so tightly packed when I opened it! The box is for sale for £14.95, but you are getting a whopping £65 worth of products in there. You even get codes for 10% off Benefit, 20% off HD Brows and Philip Kingsley, and 15% off Balance Me. It would make a great, thoughtful present for Christmas.... or a nice present to yourself, let's be honest here!
