LivBox – March

0

Time for another LivBox, a cosmetics subscription box only available in Finland but many products in it are usually international.

 

It was quite a nice box this month too. Most of the products I will definitely test and use.

I did a quick test on Bangerhead Fresh Me Up! dry shampoo and though it smelled very nice it was also a little too lightweight for my taste. It’s supposed to add volume to my hair but I can’t say I really saw or felt a difference. I will definitely give this another try later on.

Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Shine Control Cream-Gel for face. I did a quick test on this too. Felt pretty light weight as you would expect a gel like cream to feel like. The scent was also very nice and fruity. I didn’t see a clear matte effect immediately but I will have to test this under makeup to really give my opinion on it. So review might be coming up later on.

Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture shampoo and conditioner came in travel size tubes. I had a moment to test these already. The shampoo is clear and gel like, lathers well and washes your hair clean. Though it left my hair feeling kinda heavy which is weird result for a product that is meant for fine and flat hair. Conditioner made my hair silky smooth and easy to comb through. After my hair was dry it was shiny and really smooth but also pretty flat. Though I love the silky feeling on my hair now I still expected a different result. I will probably use these tubes but won’t buy these again.

Best product in this box for me was Rimmel Provocalips 310 Little Minx since I love Provocalips lip colors and I didn’t have this shade yet. I will have a review for these lip colors later on.

There was also Nailfix cuticle oil (Finnish brand) which I most likely won’t use on my nails since I swear on Bliss Kiss Pure Nail Oil. This oil comes with a hygienic dropper so I might use this on my toes when I do my pedicures.

At last there was two perfume samples. Calvin Klein Reveal for men smelled absolutely divine on my husband so we’ll definitely be buying a bottle of this later on. Chloé Love Story was a floral scent and not my kind of scent at all. I gotta give that one to my mother cos it’s something she might like. I myself like my perfumes sweeter and heavier.

 

 

LivBox – February

2

This is LivBox, a monthly cosmetics subscription box that is only available in Finland. I’m writing about this cos even if the box itself is only available here in Finland it usually has products in it that are internationally available.

I tried this box for three months last year and wasn’t too impressed. Now I decided to give it another try for a few months and this time I quite liked this first box I got. Most interesting products for me were the new Lumene Nude Perfection Fluid Foundation and Nivea 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water.

 

A quick testing of the new Lumene foundation gave me a very positive first impression and I’ll have a review up for this after using it a few more times. I’ve been hearing good things about micellar waters but never actually remember to buy any when I’m out shopping so it was perfect to find one from this box.

I also haven’t tried In-Shower body lotions so I’m excited to try the Eucerin one. I’m pretty bad when it comes to body lotions after shower cos I usually don’t have time to wait for them to absorb. So this might be perfect for me.

I don’t really have an opinion about the Fructis Densify Lengths Plumper leave in conditioner for hair yet. I’ll give it a try and let you know what I thought of it later on.

Paese eyeshadow in Kashmir was a little meh, but it might be a good color for contouring or brows so maybe I’ll get some use out of this one too. If not I’ll just give it to my mother. She likes these kind of matte shades.

There was also a necklace as a Valentines Day surprise.

All in all this was a good one for me and now I’m really looking forward to testing these products and receiving another box next month :)
