If I was to sum up my box in one word is would be disappointed....actually two words would be COMPLETEY disappointed!! I had seen a review of the box on Ingrid's blog which you can read here and was so excited. A deluxe Clinique Sample, Bed Head Manipulator and a full sized Sally Hansen Diamond Shine Base/Top Coat!!!!!
Welll...I opened my box and mine was different. And compared to Ingrid's box it looks like they had run out of the SH polish and filled it up with whatever they had.
So here is what I got....
Clinique Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturizer (7ml)
I haven't really used many Clinique skincare products, besides the 3 step products, and cant wait to try this once i have finished my moisturiser. It also comes with a card so you can go to Clinique and receive a 7 day supply of a foundation.
Bed Head Manipulator Texturizer (57ml)
I don't actually own a texturizer, so I cant wait to try this. I'm sure hubby will use it if it isn't really good for my hair. *Sorry for the photo being the wrong way!!*
Gorgeous Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Premier (full size)
This is perfect for my lips as they are quite dark, so I was really happy. I really like Gorgeous Cosmetics products. They have really great eye shadows!!
John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Spray (29ml)
Even though it sounds great, I wont use this as i get my hair dyed blonde at a salon, and don't want to mess with my colour. This would be great for someone with natural hair though.
Now the last prduct is what reallllly ruined it for me.
Instead of a full size SH nail product i was sent a Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria sample....and i mean SAMPLE! 1.2ml compared to a full size product. I know they try and customised boxes, but they HAVE to have an equal amount of full sizes vs sample sizes. The perfume is actually nice (very fruity and sweet) but they should have more than one sample.
Overall I loved the first 3 products. But the CK perfume really was a huge let down. So much so that I am thinking of cancelling my subscription if my January box is disappointing. It is really frustrating when everyone pays the same, but some people get more than others.
Am I being too picky, or would you have been disappointed too?
