Laura Mercier Body Butter in Fresh Fig |£26 for 170g| Sample is 30g so worth £4.59| Packed with nourishing shea butter, grape seed oil and protecting aloe vera gel for silky, scented limbs | This body butter smells fantastic. It is a lovely thick creamy texture, however, would I pay £26 for the full-size? I don’t think so. It’s a lovely treat to use but there are other body butters on the market for a much cheaper price tag
Weleda Replenishing Oat Shampoo | £8.95 for 190ml | Sample is 18ml so worth £0.85 | This gentle shampoo contains nourishing organic jojoba oil to smooth, reduce breakage and improve suppleness | This is a very disappointing sample size especially when it is one of the 5 main samples. I have not tried this shampoo as it does not say whether or not it is safe for coloured hair so I don’t want to risk it. Even if I had tried it, it would have been difficult to give a true review as with my long hair I would be lucky to get 2 shampoos out of the tiny tube.
Chella Highlighter Pencil |£15.95| Presumably the sample is full size | Brighten and add glow to areas you wish to accentuate | This is a peach toned highlighter pencil. This is not a good colour match for my pale skin so I will not be using this as a highlighter. When I applied this it did not seem to highlight much at all after you had blended it. However, on the plus side, it would make a good waterline highlighter (however I wouldn’t recommend this as I am not sure how safe it is to use actually as an eyeliner).
Lilla’lli Line Define Fill in Blackmail | £10 | Presumably sample is full size | A waterproof pencil to define eyes | I received the black eyeliner. It is a lovely soft, creamy pencil and the pigmentation is fantastic. However, it smudges very easily and did not last me all day. Definitely not a contender to replace my Rimmel black eyeliner!
English Laundry Signature For Her EDP | £16 for 10ml | Sample is 2ml so worth £3.20 | A divine delicate fragrance with elegant notes of quince, jasmine petals and musk | This is a beautiful feminine fragrance. It is sweet and floral at the same time. This would be a lovely summer fragrance. I will definitely consider purchasing the full-size of this. Or maybe put it on my christmas list.
Lifestyle Extra | Pukka Herbs Teas | £2.29 for for 20 teabags | Sample was 3 teabags so worth £0.34 | I quite liked this as a sample as I love trying new fruit teas. Unfortunately because I am very fussy with my teas I gave the earl grey and the cinnamon to my mom, but the elderberry and echinacea was very nice. If they sell them in my local supermarket I would definitely consider buying them.
Beauty Extra | Pencil Sharpener | £3 | This would have been really useful a week age when I had lost my sharpener and had to repurchase a new one. There’s not much else to say about a sharpener, they’re much of a muchness!
Total Box Value = £34.73
The box was good value, however, there were a few disappointing products in there. I would prefer to see some more well known brands and better sample sizes for some of the products
