I’ve never been one of those people who are incredibly interested in beauty boxes. I like buying products that I know I specifically want rather than wasting money on getting a surprise filled box of products I might not even be interested in. Although a number of brands have started one-off beauty boxes rather than subscriptions giving you great deals on products and importantly letting you know what you are buying. Feel Unique is one of those offering a collection of non-subscription beauty boxes. The one that stole my heart was the Radiant Skin box packed of four skincare products, all of which I was very excited to try. The great thing about these boxes is that instead of paying full price for a product you can try it out first along with other products making it great value for money. This box was definitely the definition of great value. I only got this box a few weeks ago so I haven’t had the most use out of all the products yet but I thought I would give you all my first impressions of each of the products.
The Radiant Skin box retails for £35 which is amazing considering the actual value of the contents works out at £70.50. Considering one of the products in the box is valued at £32, it really is a bargain! That product in topic is the first pick of the box, the Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. This is a product I’ve wanted to try for the longest time and I was super excited to see a full size included in the box. It’s a product that is pretty difficult to define. It acts really as a skin treatment used after cleansing and it’s suggested to be used every 3 days. The texture of it is pretty unusual. It feels really grainy and has a gel like consistency with a pleasant zesty scent. Basically with this product you apply it then massage it with damp fingers and leave for a minute before rinsing off. As you rinse it off you can feel your skin feeling firm and very tightened. After completely washing off it leaves your skin feeling super smooth. I haven’t had a lot of use out of this so I can’t really say whether its done a lot for my skin yet. Although you can definitely feel it working as you apply it.
Another product I got so excited to see included was the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads, a product I’ve been so desperate to get my hands on! The box included the 28 pads size tub which is great as each pad has plenty of product and you can actually get two uses out of each pad. The radiance pads essentially are pre-soaked cotton pads to exfoliate, tone and brighten the skin. There isn’t any alcohol in the product so it doesn’t feel stripping on the skin and leaves your skin feeling very soft and smooth. I’ve only used these a few times but I love how they make my skin feel after using them. I am definitely going to keep using these and hope they help clear my skin. Although so far so good!
Also included was the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, an incredibly popular product in the beauty world. Its a product I’ve also been keen to try but I wasn’t really sure if it was worth it essentially being one of those ‘fancy’ waters. It has such a lovely scent with an overpower of mint which feels super fresh on the skin. The box includes a handy 30ml size bottle which is perfect for traveling or on the go. It is such a fine mist so it doesn’t feel too wet or sticky on the skin, it just adds a little boost of hydration. It feels super refreshing and it’s supposed to be pretty good as a makeup base or after applying makeup but so far I’ve only worn this alone on makeup free days or at night. So this is definitely a product I need to try out a little more!
Lastly, a mini 15g of GlamGlow’s Youth Mud mask was also included. This was the tingle exfoliant mask which as it suggests creates a tingling feeling on the skin. The mask is quite thick in texture and soon drys down on the skin with a tingly tightening feeling. Being an exfoliating mask it isn’t the most comfortable on the skin especially as it starts to feel tingly. It definitely makes your skin feel tightened but also leaves your skin feeling comfortable and smooth after removing it. The full size is very pricey like all Glam Glow products so if I were to repurchase this I would be expecting miracles from it. Although so far even though it leaves my skin feeling nice, I don’t feel like it has done anything dramatic. It’s one I am going to need to keep testing but I am still not too sure.
Are you a fan of any of these products?
