This product is 99% natural and 52% organic
This is my first time trying Absolution, I’ve heard rave reviews. First of all, I love the packaging, you simply turn the cap to dispense the product. It has a lovely almond scent with some citrus tones. The face scrub is really gentle as the particles are very fine. It gently exfoliates leaving my skin super smooth and soft.
Flow Cosmetics Strawberry Milk Facial Mask (full-size) £12.20
Kaolinite (white clay and pink clay), Oryza Sativa Powder, Whole Milk Powder, Fragaria Vesca Fruit Powder*.
*Ingredient from organic farming 100% natural
I’ve never heard of Flow Cosmetics but you know I love powder face masks. You mix 2 teaspoons of the powder and 1 teaspoon of water in a bowl until smooth (you can also use floral water, add yoghurt or honey). Apply to cleansed skin and leave it on for about 10 minutes.
The mask slightly hardens and tightens the skin. After 10 minutes, I rinsed with warm water. I was impressed with the results, my skin was so smooth and looked brighter. I look forward to the results over time.
Kure Bazaar Diva Nail Polish (full-size £17.50)

This nail polish is fun to use for the holiday season and looks pretty too! You can use it alone and layer it to build up the glitter effect as required. I love that it’s quick drying and you can also try using it over your favourite nail polish for a glamorous effect.
Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Blush Rosa (full-size, £20)
Pure, luscious and richly pigmented, Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Blush provides natural luminosity while brightening your cheeks. Easy to use loose-powder. Shade Rosa is a cool, silver-flecked pink that flatters cool skin tones.

I wear blush occasionally, this one is pretty and works well with my skin tone. I like my blush to be subtle, a little goes a long way and it blends easily into my skin giving it a healthy glow.

I was pleased to see my favourite shampoo from John Masters. It cleanses my hair and scalp thoroughly without stripping it and leaving it tangled.

*From organic farming **Component of essential oil
This is another favourite from John Masters Organics. Thankfully it’s not the new formula which annoyingly now contains silicones. This one works wells as a detangler ~ it literally melts away any tangles or knots in my hair and also doubles as a leave-in conditioner. I like that the consistency is very light and doesn’t weigh down my hair but leaves it soft, shiny and moisturised.

I like the feel and consistency of this foundation but sadly it’s not suitable for my skin tone. I will be passing it on to a friend and hope she enjoys it.

Another new brand for me…the serum feels light on my skin and absorbs well without any greasy or sticky residue. I managed to get 2 uses out of the sample and enjoyed using it.

The texture of this cream is light and the scent is fresh and sweet. It absorbs well but for me it’s not hydrating enough for the winter. It would be a perfect moisturiser for the summer.
I’ve really enjoyed this beauty box and have discovered some lovely brands. Many thanks to Jolie for sending me this box.
