When I received an email from What’s In My Handbag last week saying they had a box going on sale for £10 and the contents were worth well over this, I knew I just had to have it. The box was the Complexion Perfection Kit and all the products in the box are sample sized skin care and they’re all products that I’ve never tried before. So I’m excited to try everything.
It came very well packaged and with a personalised label – cute touch. So what’s in the box?!
Elemental Herbology Facial Glow Radiance Peel Masque – 30ml – this smells really botanical and luxurious. In my previous post about my sample stash I said I had a moisturiser from this brand to use up so I am excited to use them in conjunction with each other. I like face masks and I go for hydrating ones normally so to get one that’s aimed at getting glowing skin is exciting. This is a mask that you only need to leave on for 4 minutes, that’s great for when you don’t have a lot of time. The full size of this is £39 for 50ml
Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant + You get two 2.5ml bottle of this oil in this kit.They say this is oil ‘works to improve skin tone, brightness and elasticity’ The bottles are a really handy size to travel with and have a pipette which I love. I put some on the back of my hand it felt soft and smooth, the oil absorbed quickly into the skin. I am a big fan of facial oils and love my Clarins Lotus Oil so I am excited to see if this helps brighten my completion. The full-sized bottle is £26.50 for 30ml
Alpha-H Absolute Eye Complex – 7.5ml. I think eye cream is the one product that I am still trying to find my holy grail of. I have tried so many. I need something to combat darkness and also I have quite a dehydrated under eye area so there is that too. This Aplha -H one claims to be a ‘fantastic eye treatment to combat dark circles, shadows, puffiness and hyperpigmentation under the eyes’ I think this 7.5ml tube is a good size to really see what it can do. I should think it will last me at least a month. Watch this space, I’m expecting great things from this brand! The full size is £34.50 for 15ml.
OSKIA: Day Cream, Get Up and Glow Booster & Eye Wonder – these 3 sachets each have 3ml of product in them and I am going to take them on the plane with me next week to really test them out. I have never heard of this brand before so I popped onto their website and they seem to be quite a high-end brand and offer a great selection of skin care. They have also won awards for Natural and Organic ingredients which is always nice in skin care. I will have to have more of a read around this brand to see if their products are worth the price tag.
KORRES: Wild Rose 24 Hour Moisturising & Brightening Cream SPF6 and Wild Rose Brightening & line Smoothing Serum. These are sachets again and the cream has 1.5ml and the serum 2ml so not a whole lot of product. I have tried KORRES lipbalms and shower gels but never skin care. I have a few samples from a KORRES set I bought from What’s In My Handbag last year to try and I am more exited to try the serum out of these two samples. The Brightening Cream full size is £19 for 40ml & the Serum is £30 for 30ml.
All in all I think for £10 I am getting to try alot of different brands and all are items that I have never tried so for a skin care junkie \ addict that is very exciting. Did you manage to buy this box or have you ordered anything from What’s in My Handbag? I’d love to know.
