Boudoire Privie

Okay, so this is probably post number 65479856785 on Boudoire Privie but, bugger it, I'm going to do one anyway so :p....
This is my second Boudoire Privie box, I've already been receiving Glossy Boxes for a few months so as I soon as I heard about this I signed up ASAP :) And I am super glad I did! I was super impressed with the first box and now even more so with this one! Compared to the Glossy Boxes it feels like you get a wider variety of products and also are receiving more, which is always good in my book. So let's have a look inside this months...




(L-R: Cetuem Illuminating Mask £25 for 50g, Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme £24 for 95ml, Sundance Eau De Parfume
Memo £60 for 30ml, Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve £5 for 20g, KorresQuince Body Butter £12.50 for 150ml, Cetuem Creme de Lite £45 for 50ml, Studiomakeup Liner Style Pen Black £12 for 1.1ml)

What I like about these boxes is that I want to use everything you get and it actually includes things that I would consider buying. Sometimes the things you receive in the Glossy Boxes can be a little hit and miss. I am massively excited to use the Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme, I love trying out new products for my hair. This is a 'pre-shampoo conditioner' that basically nourishes dry hair. Which is always needed for my dry, frizzy mop :( I've never come across a pre-shampoo conditioner so will defiantly be trying this, plus it smells so lovely and rich :)


The Rose Lip Salve smells absolutely divine ( a bit like Turkish Delight, yummy!) and feels so soft and creamy too. This is a bit like Vasaline, an all round product. According the the description it can be used on lips, to tame eyebrows, on lashes, brow bones and cheek bones to give a nice shimmers glow :) You only need a little of this as a little goes a long way and feels so nice and instantly soothes dry lips, which unfortunately I suffer from boo :(


This perfume is probably something I wouldn't normally choose, but I guess that's the good thing about these boxes they introduce you to things you would never normally buy! It's quite a nice one to wear in the day and is light and fruity with Pear, Lemon and Bergamot in it :) I really like how it's a sample bottle with a spray top making it much easier to use unlike a lot of other sample bottles that just come in the little glass containers!


The eyeliner is something that I am also looking forward to trying. I'm always on the look out for a new eyeliner and I have high hopes for this one. It's a felt tip style liner which quite a think nib. I like how, as it's thin, it's good to use in the day for just a simple line but can be built up for night time wear to create flicks and a thick line. The nib is also super, super soft! I tried it on my hand the first line is just one application and the second is after a few coats...


So, I have to say that I love the Boudoire Privie boxes and have to say I prefer them to the Glossy Boxes. I am excited to see what I will get in November's box :)
