In December I treated myself to the Naturisimo Discovery Box. I’m on a bit of a tight budget right now, so haven’t been buying that many things but as soon as I saw that this box had an Ilia lipstick in it I knew I had to get it. Ilia lipsticks are around £26 on their own and the Discovery Box was only £19.95 so I was getting such a bargain I couldn’t resist.
I was really happy with the box overall so wanted to share with you guys what was in it.
Obviously the first product I’m going to mention is the Ilia Colour Block High Impact Lipstick. I’ve had their Tinted Lip Conditioners before and they’re amazing so really wanted to give the lipsticks a go. I was not disappointed. This also comes in a lovely colour – Grenadine. A bright red that’s perfect for every skin tone and lasts a good few hours on the lips. It’s actually sold out on Naturisimo right now but there are lots of other lovely colours to choose from.
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Sun Touched– £41.00 for full size
I was a little skeptical about this sample, as I don’t like really small samples because you don’t get a proper feel for the product. However this is definitely a deluxe sample and I’ve used it a few times already and not put a dent in it yet. This is probably my second favourite product of the box and I’m so glad I got to try it. Kjaer Weis are quite expensive and this is the perfect way to try something before investing. That being said I will DEFINITELY be investing in the full size of this when this runs out. It’s the perfect blush shade for me and gives me a lovely, natural pop of colour to my cheeks.
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser – £42 for full size
Lots of people rave about this cleanser and it has a cult status in the blogging world but I’ve never gotten around to trying it before. It’s a pretty good size too at 50ml so I’ll get a good few uses out of this to give it a proper try out. I love that this mini size also comes with a cute little cleansing cloth too, so you can still try the full experience. Such cute packaging and a decent sample size.
This is another gorgeous moisturiser and another product I’d love to buy full size. This gives a more matte finish to the skin and dries down a bit quicker than the Tata Harper one. This is great for under make up as it creates the perfect neutral base for foundation – no too matte and not too glowy. I also love how there is a testimonial on the packaging – super cool. I’ll definitely be looking to pick up the full size of this when my other moisturisers run out. It’s much more in my price range.
Tata Harper Water Lock Moisturiser – £59.00 for full size
I’ve not tried any Tata Harper products before as they’re pretty expensive and I can’t justify the price in case they don’t work for me. So having this little sample included was a god send. I’ve been trying this for a few days and it’s a lovely moisturiser. I feel like it would suited for dry skin as it’s aim is to lock in moisture. I love how it leaves me with a glowy complexion – perfect for if you don’t wear a lot of make up and want to let your skin do the talking. I might keep an eye out for any sales on this and maybe pick it up when it’s a bit cheaper, as I really do love how it works with my skin.
Kypris Clearing Serum – £104 for full size
This I was a little disappointed in as the sample is pretty small. It’s a pretty expensive product so I would of liked a bigger sample to really put it through it’s paces before investing. I have tried it though and it feels nice on the skin when applied. Unfortunatly I just can’t get a good enough idea of what it will be like long term, so I won’t be picking this up full size.
Juice Beauty Vinifera Face Oil – £72.00 for full size
And lastly we have a tiny sample of the Vinifera Face Oil from Juice Beauty. As with the Kypris one there’s not enough in here to properly test it, but it did make my skin feel very nourished and plump after I used it. I only got 2 uses out of it so won’t be investing off that but it was nice to try a small amount of it.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for more Naturisimo Discovery Boxes throughout the year as they’re such amazing value for money. I was so happy with mine. I think they do around 5 or so throughout the year but I could be wrong. They do sell out pretty fast though so you have to keep your eyes peeled.
