Feel Unique November Beauty Box

Since receiving my first Feel Unique box last month, I'd been eagely awaiting the November edition, so you can imagine my delight when I returned home from work to find a little note from the Postman on Saturday :)

Unfortunately i had to wait until this morning to collect my box (oh the agony!) but judging by its contents, it's well worth the wait!

I love the black / hot pink colour theme of the Feel Unique Beauty Box

This month's theme is PRIMED TO PARTY so the products are all perfectly suited to the festive season

My November goodies!

First up - Bella Pierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder

I received the 'Penny' shade, which I'm really pleased with as bronze/ coppery tones suit blue eyes. This is a multi purpose powder but I'll definitely be using it as an eyeshadow. This is a full sized product worth £12.99 for 2.5g. Excellent value!

The shimmer powder is a beautiful richly pigmented product

There are 2 hair products in the November Box (both voluminising) and the one that I'm probably most excited about is the Goldwell Dualsenses Ultra Volume 60 Sec Gel Treatment

Apologies for the  dodgy pic!

This gel is to be combed through shampooed hair and left to activate for 60 seconds - much like a conditioner I suppose, but with super volumising power. I'll be testing this one out tonight and shall report back! We received a 50ml sample of this. The full sized 200ml product retails for £7.70

The next hair product we received: Schwarzkopf Osis+ Dust It Mattifying Powder

Had I received this earlier, I would have been over the moon, but I actually bought something very similar by Tresemme last week! I think powder styling products are pretty revolutionary because they actually do what they say they will so I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this one. At 10g this is a full sized product that retails for £9.55 - that's nearly the cost of the whole box :)

Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Weekly Self-Tan in Dark

I'm a bit of a faux tan fiend (in the warmer months anyway) but I've never tried anything by Xen-Tan so I'm excited to give this one a go. It has a guide colour and a pleasantly sweet scent so it should be a treat to use. This is a 30ml deluxe sample with the full size 236ml retailing at £21.50

The perfume sample in this month's box is Prada Candy

With notes of Musk, Benzoin and Caramel, this sweet and flirty offering from Prada certainly lives up to it's name - it actually smells like candy! Because of the almost sickly sweetness of this fragrance, I'm sure it won't be everyone's cup of tea. If, like me, you're a fan of Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb, you'll probably really like this one. Priced from £40 for 30ml. In the November box you'll find a standard 1.5ml sample - perfect size for your purse. Mine's already found a home in my Vivienne Westwood clutch :)

And to take off your party face and pamper the skin: Emma Hardie Amazing FaceNatural Lift & Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm + Dual Action Professional Cleansing Cloth

I'm a massive fan of hot cloth cleansers, especially balms. This one reminds me a lot of the Eve Lom cleanser as the consistency is quite similar - sort of like congealed honey. The scent of the balm is quite strong and floral thanks to the moringa component and I really like the smell so I think this will be a joy to use.I'm an Emma Hardie virgin so I'm keen to test this one out on my dry skin. The November box includes a generous 15ml of the balm and a full sized cleansing cloth. The balm retails at £34 for 100ml and the cloths are £10 for a pack of 3.

Feel Unique has kicked another goal by producing such a fantastic box this month and I can't wait to see what's in store for December!
