* UPDATE – Carmine are no more. They sold to Glossy Box Boo Hoo :(
This is by far the best Carmine box I have received to date. Three full size products, an amazing tooth product and some lovely samples. Big smiles all round from me.
Here’s a little look at why it’s my favourite…
Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Was: I‘m a big fan of Balance-Me products so I was delighted to see this one. It has 99% natural ingredients and smells fresh and natural. Left my skin soft and smooth. Best of all, no dry skin afterwards! Full size 100ml. The scent you receive is just the look of the draw – I see others got Rose Otto wash, have to say, want that one too :)
SteamCream – Steam Infused Skin Care – This is apparently a wonder cream. It’s an anti-inflamatory, improves elasticity, contains vitamin E to keep skin plump, super moisturising Jojoba. It also contains healing essential oils and cocoa butter. Now, if you don’t like the smell of lavender you may have issues with this one, I like it though. My skin felt amazing after application. I will be smearing this all over the bump regularly. If I had dry skin I would smear this all over my face to see if it worked the same magic. But alas, I am too spotty. This is a full size product, although the design on the tub varies (£12.95 for 75g)
White Glo Extra Strenght Whitening Toothpaste – This stuff works! It’s designed for coffee and tea drinkers. I’m off to source where to buy it from online. I’m very impressed with the results. (*Update – it’s in Boots apparently! Didn’t have to go all the way to Australia for it).
Yardley Peony Frangrance Sample & Il Rossetto the Lipstick sample – I was expecting Peony to be a little grannyish, it’s actually quite soft and pretty – if you like floral fragrances. The lipstick I received is browny, rosy toned (No42). Not great for my skin tone but I might try it over a nude base and get back to you. The shade sent out in the box varies.
Andrea Fullerton Nail Polish in Matthew (shade may vary) – Pretty, oyster, peach. It’s a nice polish. Will be back with swatches. I was a little jealous when I saw the bright shades that other people received in their boxes though. We’ll see. (Superdrug £4.99 for 5.5ml)
