BeautecoBox July

BEAUTECO BOX
Hi Beauts,

As I'm now over this flu/virus whatever it was that struck me down over the last week, I'm bouncing back into posts and the next couple of days I will be featuring beauty boxes. New month, a new menu, BeautecoBox* is back and really I'm a fan if BeautecoBox is new to you it's a new relatively new box that's available but with a twist, you get to select your box! No more guessing, get what you want so I chose my July menu as I wanted to try these Neal & Wolf products and after being introduced to ArtDeco earlier this year being able to add a couple of new pieces to the make-up drawer is never a negative. Four full sized and a sample product - ah, lovely.

neal and wolf
Unfortunately my hair has been washed before this box arrived but open taking a whiff of these two products, I sniffed & sniffed. They smell so good to my senses.
HARMONY Intensive Care Treatment 200ml £12.95 & ELEVATE Volumising Lotion 200ml £11.95. I'm continuing my intensive hair treatment for my hair, after all the bleaching and dyeing it took it's toll and stole my curls from me, so keeping the advice I was given, I am looking forward to trying this as my mid-month intensive treatment for the next couple of months before giving a full blown review on it. It's only fair! Plus it's suitable for all hair types. The volumising lotion will be cool once I get my BaByliss Big Hair styler back, whenever I blow out my hair, it's the volume and bounce I'm looking for...I'm actually excited, geeky huh!

pukka radiance
Pukka Radiance Serum 50ml £24.00
A brand I've heard about but never used. Cruelty free and 97.5% organic ingredients ideal for those like me who prefer products like that. Gotu kola and lemon balm to tone and brighten, Aloe Vera & Manuka Honey, from experience I know that aloe vera and honey are great for the skin, to soothe and battle spots due to the honeys antiseptic properties. Free from parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and colours. I've been including serums in my routine so I'm going to see how this one works for me.

artdeco
ArtDeco I think some of their prices are fair, think drugstore, I've had a lipstick and nail polish from the brand previously so now trying eye products is nice cos finding an eyeliner that's soft and easy to smudge is good for me as I do like to smudge my eyeliner a great deal. Soft Kajal Eyeliner in the swatch below you can notice it transfers soft, I applied it using the side of the pencil, not the tip. Due to how soft it is, putting it on the delicate part of your eyes i.e. the inner rim it will just glide on.

Eyeshadow base comes in a tidy small pot, I don't have any other e/s primers in a pot, different packaging. Vitamin E formula it allows the skin to be protected and moisturised before applying your shadow. Texture is creamy, almost silky it just glides onto the finger, the Bisabolol ingredients helps calm any redness, neutralising the skin tone. The shade is more champagne - highlighting when swatched, gives a brightening look, I did apply eyeshadow afterwards unfortunately the one I decided to pull out of the drawer was MAC Bamboo and just blended into my skin but when I patted it onto the base it adhered evenly and smoothly. FUN FACT : ARTDECO Eyeshadow Base is free from animal derived ingredients.
Later this week when I do a make-up look I will include these two in the look so you can get an idea of how well e/s takes and the eyeliner looks. It'll also let me see how good the eyeshadow base holds up compared to my HGs.

  4. Haven't been impressed with my beauty box experiences so far mainly because of the random items so think this being able to pick exactly what you want is a great idea. Will check out.

    1. I think that's what gives boxes like this that edge, your selecting your box to your own preference for £10 you can't go wrong.
