Marie Claire - The Parcel - Special Anniversary Edition



This season The Parcel is celebrating Marie Claire's 20th Anniversary with a special edition box.  The following 8 items were jam packed into the box:

John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner
At 250ml in each, these were by far the largest items in the box and products I haven't tried before although I've seen the range around a lot.  I look forward to trying these out.

MOR Hand & Body Milk - Rosa Noir
Containing shea butter and macadamia oil this sounds divine.

Redwin Coconut Balm
Is this the new Paw Paw Ointment?  I'm not really sure about this product - you'd think by the name that it would primarily be coconut oil which is a product well known for its hydrating properties but the ingredient list shows its first ingredients are castor oil and vegetable oil.  I'll give it a try but I think I'd rather just use Coconut Oil.

St Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan
This is the product I was most excited to see in the box as I'd seen it advertised recently as a new release.  A tan you can apply and wash off after 3 minutes in the shower? Sounds like a dream come true!

Loreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick - Matte - Ouhlala
A gorgeous matte hot pink shade to celebrate Loreal's 30th birthday.

Clinique Custom Repair Serum
It's been a long time since I've used any Clinique skincare so I was pleasantly surprised to find this in here and I'm always keen to find a good serum.  Look forward to trying this out and hopefully seeing some good results.

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge
A small vial of perfume that unfortunately is not a scent I'll be wearing anytime soon.  I'm shit at describing scents so I won't bother and perfumes are hugely personal things anyway that change from person to person so best just to try it for yourself next time you see a tester in store.

That's all for this seasons 'The Parcel' by Marie Claire.  Again I was really happy with what was in the box and I think Marie Claire continue to nail the beauty subscription box concept with ease.  Other companies should take notes.  You can sign up or find out more info at www.theparcel.com.au
