Hi lovelies, it’s been a long time hasn’t it? But I’m here to tell you that I’m back for good. No more stressing out just because my laptop’s taking a long while to do what I ask it to do.Anyway, it’s the first day of June! And I’m here to show you what I got from my last month’s Nuoobox.There wasn’t any particular theme for May, I wonder … they might have forgotten to put the card or something.I received 6 products in total and without further ado, let me tell you my first impressions on each one of them.
- Patyka Double Action Smoothing Scrub (sample size 20ml) | Full size: €39 50ml
Patyka is a highend skincare brand in Paris, the brand means apothecary in Hungarian. It’s my first time using an an anti-ageing product, I do hope that it won’t do anything weird to my skin … I tried this product yesterday to have a first feel to it. I’ve been using Ocean Salt from Lush ever since I started using facial scrubs and masks, this facial scrub compared to Ocean Salt is milder and really gentle on the skin. I actually liked how the cream sinks into the skin the more you massage it. After rinse, my face felt smooth and clean. Odor wise, I don’t have any negative comment, it’s mild and simple, I really like it.
- Evolve Organic Beauty Satin Leg Gloss (sample size 30ml) | Full size : £20 100ml
Evolve Organic beauty is an English hair and skincare brand. I was actually quite excited when I first saw this in the box because I’ve never used anything like it before. I better work out my legs before summer really strikes!
- Aromadunes Rhassoul Mask (sample size 10ml) | Full size box of 10 sachets of 10ml : €24.90
This brand is based in France, I’m not really familiar with it (like most of the brands in this month’s box btw) but really quickly, they specializes in orielntal organic skincare which is pretty interesting. So I tried this facial mask last night, after using Patyka facial scrub. It’s a volcanic clay type of facial mask, enriched with seaweed. It’s supposed to exfoliate, detoxify, remineralize and tonify your skin. Big words but I’m curious about the tonifying factor of this mask … I’m not saying I don’t like it but the texture feels weird that’s for sure. It has a jelly-like consistency unlike other volcanic masks that I’ve used thus far. I still have to use this a few more times to see if it’s worth continuing or not (because yes, as I said I’m quite curious), it will definitely take some getting used to due to its texture but other than that I quite like the smell – it’s orangey and refreshing.
- Oceapin La Poudre de Graines de Pin Maritime (sample size 15g) | Full size: €20 100g
“Finely crushed maritime pine seeds, steeped in natural anti-oxidants, is a fabulous exfoliating powder for the body that invigorates, smoothes and revives skin. When frictioned on skin, maritime pine seed powder eliminates dead cells and impurities for a real skincare experience with « seaside » and woody notes. It softens and evens up the epidermis, speeds up skin renewal and helps the skin to recover new-found radiance. It performs a beneficial scrub that also stimulates the circulation and facilitates the absorption of the active ingredients contained in the skin products applied afterwards.
Being totally organic and non-irritating, LA POUDRE DE GRAINES DE PIN MARITIME® is suitable for all skins. It applied by massage on damp or lightly oiled skin and can be mixed with a body cleansing gel. Durable, one spoonful is enough to vivify both the body and soul”.
Another interesting product in the box this month, I’ve never used body scrub this way and I’m really thrilled to try it. You can either use it as is, on a damp or oily skin or mix it with your body gel. I think I will try both.
- Aimée de Mars Mythique Iris Perfume (sample size roll-on 10ml) | Full size : €69.10 50ml
This is what I got excited me in May’s box, natural perfume made of essential oils and other natural ingredients, this scent is so mild and lightweight I really like it. Plus, I’m really glad to have received the roll-on version, I can finally put some perfume in my bag and bring it all around where I go, it’s practical. I was quite surprised by the price of the full size version though, not that it’s not any more expensive than the usual brands … definitely thinking of purchasing it in the future.
- Aimée de Mars Eau 21 (sample size roll-on 10ml) | Full size: €59.40 50ml
This scent appeals less to me, on their site apparently, it’s more of a masculine perfume and I confirm that the scent is stronger than the previous one, I’m thinking of giving this to my boyfriend if he likes it.
And voilà for the Nuoobox Unboxing for the month of May, as always I’m looking forward to receiving the next one.
