Marie Claire’s The Parcel


I’ve signed up for a few subscription boxes in the past but I really do think that this one is the best!  It has some brilliant products including a lot of full size ones which is a real bonus!  So I though I would share what came in this seasons Parcel


The first products is an OPI nail polish in the shade Romantically Involved – it’s a beautiful almost burnt red shade that will be absolutely perfect for this time of year.  Next up is L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes So Couture – Looking at the brush on this mascara, it looks quite similar to the Covergirl Lash Blast so I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this mascara.  Volume is the main thing I look for in a mascara so considering this is called ‘Volume Million’ I have high hopes!  It also has the Lanolips Lemonade Lip Aid – I love Lanolips, they are so nourishing and are the one of the only products that really keep my lips from drying out.  Coincidentally I just ran out of my 101 ointment so i’ll be very happy to start using this one.  Now I haven’t used a lot of Estee Lauder skincare but I am very much looking forward to trying their Revitalising Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme – It feels lovely and claims to soften skin so I really want to see how this works on my dry patches.  More skincare is from the Neutrogena Hydro Boost line, it has three of their sheet masks which I am a big fan of!  I tried one of these the other day and they really do hydrate the skin, my skin was left feeling very plumped and smooth.  When I run out of my many, many Korean sheets mask I think I will be giving these ones another go.  Neutrogena also included a small pack of makeup removing towelettes, these are perfect for travelling!  Next up is the John Frieda Beach Blood Cool Dip Purifying Shampoo and Smooth Seas Detangling Conditioner – I am currently using this shampoo and conditioner anyway so I was happy to get some little bottles of it.  Again this is perfect for travelling and I think i’ll be saving these for my trip to Europe.  It also came with the John Frieda Ocean Waves Sea-Salt Spray – I love sea salt spray for when I couldn’t be bothered to do anything with my hair so I’m excited to see how these all work together.  Finally it came with Woolworths Select Quick & Easy Nail Polish Removal Wipes – I tried these straight away as my nail polish was looking pretty crappy and I was very disappointed.  They’re acetone free so they don’t remove anything!  I know acetone free is better for your nails but it just doesn’t work, they removed nothing and just made my nails sticky so I just had to use my regular nail polish remover.  If they had worked I would have been so happy, they would have been perfect for travel and much easier to use than cotton balls.

All in all I am very happy with this seasons Parcel and I can’t wait for the next one.  Do you subscribe to The Parcel?  Are there any other subscriptions that I should check out?
