My Beauty Box: March

Hey, lovely people! I just wanted to say that I'm sorry that I've been MIA lately, but have been a little busy with school and other stuff. But it's gonna change since I'm done with classes this Friday, so I've plenty of time to do what I love, which is writing posts for you guys :) Lets get going with this post.

Ever since Birch Box came out in the states, I've wanted one! Since then there have been loads of different subscription services all over the world. And finally it came to Denmark! Oh yeah.. But at the time this started I was studying abroad.

Soo, when I came home, started school and got settled in my apartment again, I subscribed to
My Beauty Box. This is my first box and I was so excited when I saw it standing outside my door when I came home from school.

These beauty boxes gives you the opportunity to try new products without spending too much money. I pay 129 DDK (£14) a month for 4-5 products. Some of them are full size and others are samples - I'm already a big fan of the idea.

What was in the box, you ask? Well, I'll show you here:
The box is nicely put together and you get a little card which describes what the box contains this month. And the great think about these boxes is that you can use them to organize your makeup or other stuff.

On the card they descibe seven products, so at first I didn't know if I didn't received all of my products or what was happening. But it turns out that not every box contains the same products, which, for me, is fine but I just don't wanna know which products I was missing out on. I don't know if it's just me that's being weird? 

Now to the products! I received two skin care products and two makeup products which I'm really happy about. 

DR. HAUSCHKA Blackthorn Body Wash 150ml: This is a full size product. I immediately wanted to smell it - is that weird? I don't know if you've ever been to a beauty salon but it smells just like when I step into the salon where I get my brows fixed. I think it is the Rosemary essential oil that gives it that smell. I'm looking forward to try this, especially on my, very, dry legs!

KORRES Wild Rose Moisturising Cream 10ml: This is a sample size, a full size is 40 ml. I haven't heard a lot about this brand but I'm really looking forward to try this. It is a 24-hour moisturiser and has SPF 6, so just a mild SPF. The cream contains wild rose oil which delivers natural vitamin C to your skin and is free from a lot of things. The smell is nice and subtle, which is nice when it is for the face.
DAINTY DOLL Mascara and Eyeliner Duo: This is a full size product. This brand is pretty new, I think, and it's specially designed for fairer skin tones. I got the black/brown colour 002 Shape Up Little Suzy - cute name! I like the colour, which I think is going to be nice for an everyday makeup look.
The eyeliner is nice and thin, whereas the mascara brush is big, which I really like.

O.P.I Nail Lacquer 375 ml: This is a sample size. It is a light grey colour, almost white. The brush and colour is going to nice to create geometric designs - this years spring trend. Unfortunately it doesn't say anywhere the name of the colour, so if any of know the colour then tell me in the comments below - I'm just curious ;)

So, this was my first beauty box and I'm really happy and positive! Already looking forward to the next one. Are you subscribed to any beauty boxes? Or have you tried any of these products? Let me know what you think in the comments beeeelooow :)

Have a nice Wednesday, wherever you are

Thanks for reading

Love
Marie-Louise

  3. Review på den Mascara/eyeliner? Hvor smart at putte begge dele i en pakke, så sparer man den plads i makeup-pungen.

    Fin blog. Vil du ikke tage et kig forbi min?
