Right. So i am getting to the last few boxes I've bought...this one was a surprise as i must have ordered it when i was half asleep and i totally forgot about it!! Nice surprise when i got it though!
A very full box, which was an even nicer surprise!!
However, rather than the boxes i have had in the past, where they are all full sized, these are "luxury" sample size - basically meaning that they're a decent size to try and figure out if its right for you or not, rather than the samples you receive in some beauty boxes that are a sachet....
This was a bargain box at just $18.99 delivered (approx £12.50), and even though i didn't mean to buy it I'm glad i did!
What has disappointed me is the new leaflet cards. The one that came with the last box i wasn't the only one to think it was maybe just for the holiday season...but no. This was not a one off. This is what we now get.......
Which may be easier for them, but not so much for us the buyers. The link only stays live for a certain amount of time. By the time i came to write this box up, the page no longer existed. I had to get a "cached" version of it from google, so a basic, but really that's all i need, but the older leaflets were so much easier!
Anyway....enough of the waffle!! Lemme show you the contents of the box...!

Okay! So this was the "surprise" box (need to make a mental note to turn phone off when i go to bed, as i can wake up half dazed and buy anything!!!!). Its...OK. Not sure what to do with the hair loss treatment thingie....:/
Looking forward to trying the Tonymoly BCDation cream, the Ampoule and also the Cinema City CC cream - it is the make up i tend to enjoy getting from the boxes.
The others.... I'm pretty sure i can find a home for them and replace them with something i can use!
Good news - Value box sets have returned after the festive season....I'm hoping they have more variety soon. I'm gutted i missed the Korean started kit as i would have loved to play with that!
The only thing that's different with this post is i cant give an accurate approximation of RRP's - this is due to the fact all of them bar one are luxury samples, and my math sucks and the amount of brain cells working at the moment, cant do much!
If you click through the below picture it takes you straight to the front page, and you can navigate where you want to look from there!
