Beauty Basket April 2012

I always look forward to Beauty Basket each month. I think they are a very under-rated beauty sample company but they are always amazing in my eyes and don't disappoint. Unlike every other beauty sample box service, Beauty Basket advertise what will be in each months box on their website in advance so you know what you are getting. This month's box was a nice little selection of products:

1) Goldwell Dualsenses Rich Repair 60 sec Treatment RRP $20.95 for 200ml Sample size: 50ml

I'm always on the lookout for amazing hair treatments and totally excited to give this a try tonight after my workout. And one that works in 60 seconds is even better for us time-poor chicks who cant spend forever in the shower. I will rate this later this week after I use it. 

2) John Plunkett Advanced Instant Wrinkle Filler RRP $39.95 for 20ml Sample size: 10ml

I am a big lover all things 'primer' and just want to say I LOVE this stuff! It really does have that lovely gel-powder finish and it kept my make-up on all day and it looked flawless. I rate this product a 4.5/5.

3) Innoxa Nail Polish RRP $13.95 Sample size: full-sized product

I do love getting nail polishes in my monthly beauty boxes and was excited to get this one. I got the 'plush velvet' shade which is a beautiful red wine colour which is a colour I lack in my nail polish collection so am excited to use this. It sets beautifully & quick as well. Cute packaging too. I rate this polish a 5/5. 

4) U Little Beauty Dinki-Di Day Cream RRP $22.95 for 75ml Sample size: 30ml

I'm always excited to try new moisturisers, I always tend to go through moisturisers so much faster then all my other skin-care products! This vitamin-C rich cream has a lovely tangy but creamy scent and feels ultra-nourishing on the skin but non-greasy. A really nice product, I rate it a 4.5/5. 

5) Avon Supershock MAX Mascara RRP $22.99 for 10g Sample size: 10g full-sized product

Firstly I LOVE the packaging of this mascara- a beautiful metallic green wand. The brush itself is massive and did surprise me a bit at first but it applies like a dream with no clumps (yay) and made my lashes super massive! I seem to get a mascara with every beauty sample box lately so have a million in my collection but this one certainly stands out! I rate this product a 4.5/5. 

I also received the latest issue of Just Be magazine (not pictured) in this months box and am looking forward to reading this on the weekend! 

Overall I am once again super happy with this month's Beauty Basket. 2 full-sized products and 3 very generous sized samples and packaged in a lovely wicker basket as always. I highly recommend subscribing to them for anyone pondering whether to or not.

  1. Lovely goodies :-) It's a shame they don't do something like this in the UK, I've only come across one company and they charge more than the full size products! ;-)
