The Parcel Marie Claire Summer Edition

Hi guys, today I have another unboxing for you. It's funny but I thought that I had cancelled my subscription to The Parcel so i'm not sure if this one had already been paid for and that's why it came or if I didn't actually cancel my subscription. Not a big deal either way cos this box is always well worth the money. I was just cancelling it to save some dollars. If you are looking for a good beauty subscription box then I definitely recommend The Parcel. It only comes every 3 months but there is always a great range of good quality products and you easily get your money's worth plus more. The parcel will cost you $25 every 3 months and as you're about to see this is an amazing price considering the products that you get.

Maybelline New York Colossal Pumped Up Volume Express Mascara: Gee, that's a mouthful and a half. Anybody who know's me know's that I love my mascara's and I don't think I have this one yet which is a little surprising. I can't wait to give this one a try. Retail price is $19.95

Paula's Choice Vitamin C Spot Treatment: I am a huge fan of Paula's Choice and if you have the money I definitely recommend buying their products. Everything that I have tried from the Paula's Choice range has been amazing, unfortunately it's just a little bit too expensive for me. We received a 5ml sample and retail price for 15ml is $70.00

Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster: Look out guys we're getting a little fancy now. I use a lot of moisturisers and serums so I always love receiving these little samples especially because we all know i'm not going to fork out that much money for the actual product. I don't have any little samples on the go at the moment just full size products so I will definitely give this one a go tomorrow. We received a 5ml sample and retail price for 30ml is $85.00

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish: Apparently there were 14 different shades available to subscribers and I tell you what the subscription boxes have been nailing the colours lately. I got the shade Barracuda which is a light pastel blue coulour and is exactly the kind of colour that I would pick for myself. I have a lot of nail polishes. Nail polishes and mascaras are my weakness so I always get excited when one comes. Retail price is $14.95

Maybelline New York Colour Elixir: I thought this was a lipstick when I first picked it up but it's actually a gloss. I prefer glosses over lipstick anyway so this works perfectly for me. You could receive 1 of 2 different shades and I received Petal Plush. It's a very light pink colour and my only concern is that it might be too pink for me. I will give it a try though and see how it goes. I'm currently using a Revlon gloss which is just my everything at the moment. Retail Price is $17.95

Zoeva Luxe Crease Eye Brush: I don't really use brushes so I honestly couldn't tell you if this is good or not. The fact that it's available at Sephora would suggest that it's a good brush. I will just give this away to a friend. Retail price is $17.00

Michael Kors Gold Collection Fragrance: There were three different fragrances that you could've received any I got the Rose Radiant Gold. It has quite a strong scent so you wouldn't need to use too much of it. It's definitely a scent that I would wear but I don't think it's really an every day scent more a going out at night to fancy places scent. We received a 1.5ml sample and retail price for 50ml is $110.00

Swisse Deep Sea Hydrating Mist Toner: My face doesn't really agree with toner's I don't know why. It's just my stupid face being all stupid. I will give it a go anyway and if no good i'm sure there will be a few of the ladies at work that will be willing to take this little baby off my hands. We received a 15ml sample and retail price for 125ml is $9.99

2 x Lonvitalite Face Masks: We received the Coconut Milk Hydrating Face Mask and the Collagen Firming Face Mask. I have previously used both of these and I love them. I like using a good mask once every week to two weeks so I go through them very quickly and it can be expensive. I refuse to pay Lonvitalite prices but they show up so often in the subscription boxes that I don't really need to buy any. A pack of 5 retails for $39.00

Trilogy Make-up Be Gone Cleansing Balm: This is an interesting little product. I use either make-up removing wipes or micellar water each night to remove my make-up so i'm really interested to give this a go and see how it compares. To be honest it probably isn't something that I would buy based on the price alone because my current products work okay and are much, much cheaper. We received a 10ml sample and retail price for 80ml is $36.90

OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner: I was so excited when I saw these in the box. I see these in the shops all the time and love their cute packaging. I have very finicky hair so generally just stick to my Schwarzkopf as that's what seems to work best. Can't wait to give this a go though and see if it's as amazing as i've always hoped it would be. We received 2 x 60ml samples and retail price for 385ml is $17.99 each.

Well that's everything that I received in my box and for $25 how can you not be impressed. There is always something in the box for everyone and if there is something that you don't like or use it's never hard to find someone who does want it. The best thing about this box is that the products are always higher end products so you feel pampered and fancy even if it is only temporarily. I will need to look into whether or not I cancelled this box and if I haven't I may decide to keep getting it anyways. You can't really lose when it's only $25 per box. As a side note my apologies for the quality of the photos. As a lot of you know the office recently underwent a complete renovation so i'm still trying to find a good spot to take all the photos cos you know these things need to be done at work and not when you're at home. Bye for now my lovelies.
