This months Boudoir Prive Box just isn't to my taste. Its full of repeat brands that have been in other boxes, including Korres and Studio Makeup, which were in the last months Boudoir Prive box and Dead Sea Skin Magic (which I've got no intrest at all in!) I'm worried about using the mask even though I've actually done a patch test which came out fine. So many people have complained about it on their Facebook Page, I don't think I want to risk using it. The Studio Makeup lipstick is a nice deep red, but a little too dark for my personal tastes. I love the packaging though as it has a really satisfying click mechanism. Korres moisturizer, yeah thats fine as I do actually like and use Korres products. Im interested in the Shampoo/Conditoner as I missed it in a previous GlossyBox, But nothing makes me go "oooh that looks interesting! I'd like to try it!"
I've decided to un-sub from Boudoir Prive after the Christmas box and maybe give Carmine another chance (despite not liking the products they included this month either!). The Christmas box should be out in the next few weeks apparently. Overall with Boudoir Prive I find their service is always late and I find it doesn't appeal to me as the other box I pay for, Feel Unique, which is definitely my favourite and most recommended out of all the sample boxes I've tried. I get that with these boxes its simply not going to please everyone, I can accept getting products I dislike. The thing I'm most interested in is trying new brands, not the same old ones all the time. At the end of the day Im not gonna cry about it and just unsubscribe if Im not happy with something!
PS. Im a touch miffed by their choice of quote for the leaflet? Is this just me? I think the first part is fine, just the lazy bit just seems off to me. I like to make myself look nice as much as the next women but I dont think its fair to say people who dont are lazy or ugly?
Im currently working on a post about the reality behind beauty boxes, which should be up next week. If you can let me know any thoughts you have on any of the beauty boxes, why you like them/why you dont like them let me know in comments!
