NEW_NEW_Join_Banner_TakeChargeHow amazing is this latest competition?? Offer ends on the 14/02/2015 so sign up to stand a chance.

 The wonderful Head Rubies were kind enough to send me a Rubybox, they know that every girl wants to start their year off with some great beauty products! And on top of that, everyone loves to get parcels; posted, couriered, hand delivered, everyone loves to receive a box filled with awesome and this is what Rubybox supplies.

My box contained:
  • Natural Lab SPF30 Natural Face Cream –I was very excited to try this. With summer upon us a tinted sunscreen is perfect for my daily make up wear, it makes you feel like your skin can breath and there is enough coloring to make you feel like your skin is #flawless! I’m very surprised at how adaptable the tinting is, I’m super pale after my trip to winter wonder land aka Europe and this adapt perfectly to my coloring!
  • Rubybox Super Seamless Foundation Brush –This is my third Rubybox foundation brush. (I received one in a Rubybox, another at the #Durbanbloggermeet and now this one.) As far as foundation brushes go this is a great, cost effective brush, it does shed slightly but has great application, soft bristles and makes you feel like a pro.
  • Africology Body Butter -Being summer I was a little skeptical about receiving a body butter – we all know that body butters take a while to soak in, are extra moisturizing and can leave you feeling just as hot and humid as when you first showered. Surprisingly this body butter was lovely, I applied immediately after I showered two mornings in a row, although the formula was slightly harder and less pliable than most others, it left my skin feeling moisturized without the sweaty after thought. My one criticism would be that it smells very herb-y/ grassy/ vegetation like and although this didn’t linger I would have preferred a more feminine scent.
  • Mavala Cuticle Remover –Before I left for my winter wonderland holiday I did what all beauties will tell you is a possible mistake. I had gel nails done. *shock horror!* The only reason why is because it makes life a lot easier when you are travelling. Because of this I haven’t been able to try out the Mavala Cuticle Remover as yet. Believe me I will because I really like Mavala’s nail ranges and have heard great things about their other products. (So keep an eye/ ear out)

So why not join the 25000 women who subscribe and enjoy getting a wonderful customized parcel worth approx R250 every month, filled with hair care, skin care, make-up, fragrances and more. I’ve had some amazing brands in boxes that I have received; John Freida, Salvatore Ferragamo, Aussie, Sally Hansen and more! If you are wanting more bang for your bucks there are other options which include a MANBOX (a perfect valentines pressie for him), Beautique Boxes (can someone send me one of these!! They sound amazing.) and Build-a-Box.

p.s. I promise to update with images later this afternoon! XX
