Dollibox | July 2017*


I love Dollibox* day - it's always such a pink, magical unboxing experience; packed full of over-excited swearing and weird  grunts / noises. Which, when I read these opening lines back, sounds a bit sexual.. so soz about that. It's not, I just guess unboxing with Nikki is a little more vocal and a lot more northern than you'd typically see on YouTube - and delighted swearing is just part of the deal.

I'm yet to receive a Dollibox that has disappointed me, and I doubt I ever will. The packaging, products and low cost please me immensely and I really enjoy unboxing it - it's always a varied range of products and I'm always left surprised at what I find nestled in that pink paper. And that's the most fun part; like a mini Christmas on your doorstep each month and not knowing what to expect. Here's July's curation - and spoiler alert, there's mermaids, cats and bunnies imminent.

Maxi Black Liquid Eyeliner, Full Size
RRP £5.00

I'm actually really impressed with this eyeliner; it's not dry or scratchy like some of the cheaper liquid eyeliner pens can be. At all. It's long lasting, easy to apply and comparable in quality to the eyeliners I use on a daily basis. Well, when I can be arsed to get dressed. A dead useful product to have - I go through eyeliner like there's no tomorrow, as I'm totally dedicated to the winged life.

Buff Body Oil, Travel Size [15ml]
RRP £4.00

I love how cute this little bottle is; I'm a full on sucker for glass packaging. I've actually been recommended this stuff from other bloggers as it's supposed to be really effective; which is always a good sign! 

This Buff Body Oil is handmade, 100% natural, light and nourishing; available in 5 different blends. I got the Post Workout Blend in my Dollibox; which is actually pretty useful for me right now, as it's great to soothe sore muscles and like - my whole body aches these days #FossilProbs. I'm saving this for after my surgery, as no doubt it'll be super relaxing and perhaps help ease any muscular pain as I go through physio.

Seacret Dead Sea Bath Salt, Full Size
RRP £12.95

I've seen a fair bit of Seacret in subscription boxes recently - but luckily, they're a brand I really like, so I don't mind. Although I'd have to remortgage the family home and live in a box outside Aldi to be able to afford to spend so much on bath salts, I really relished the experience of soaking in pure luxury; thanks to Dollibox!

Bath salts are great for drawing out impurities and aches from the muscles and skin, so as soon as my Dollibox arrived I ran a bath, poured these in and soaked for approx 2 hours.  It was a super relaxing experience and definitely left me feeling more chill. I'm really enjoying this brand and their natural products; packed full of the calming powers of Dead Sea minerals.

Cats Wink BB Cream, Full Size
RRP £4.25

CATS! Need I say more?! How cute is this packaging? To be honest, I wouldn't have even cared if this product was sh*t with a tube that pretty and feline themed. I was a little unsure of what it would be like quality wise / dubious initially; all excitement about cats aside, as it mentions whitening on the front of the tube - and I don't wanna get any paler, I'm already like frigging Casper.

Pleasant surprise though, it's actually a pretty decent colour match for my skin and not bad coverage at all for a BB cream. If I'm just nipping to the shop or something, I've been wearing this as a light foundation with a little lipgloss and some mascara. It makes for a fresh, clear, dewy look; that the man in the corner shop digs as much as I do. I'm really happy with this product, one of the stand out pieces of this month's curation for me.

BioAqua Hydrating Seaweed & Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Facial Mask, Full Size
RRP £5.95

I love these masks - there's no way of wearing one and looking sexy, but they don't half leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed afterwards. I popped this on whilst enjoying my Seacret bath salts and my skin felt younger and much more hydrated when I peeled it off. Sheet masks are my new addiction. And the mermaid packaging is super fun / cute / me

Silicone Sponge, Full Size
RRP £3.95

BUNNIES! I can't cope!! HOW CUTE IS THIS?! I nearly died when I saw this little siliblender tucked away in the corner of my Dollibox. It's just absolutely adorable and too cute to even use - look at those little rabbits! I'm a big fan of silicone blenders, they really do help you get more out of your product and they're much more hygienic / easy to maintain than sponges [I'm all about that lazy life] so I was pleased to see such a cute one included in this month's curation.

Well, once again Dollibox have slayed my life. A box crammed full of really useful, cute and fun to unwrap products - all at a fantastic price. AND out of the 6 products in July's box, 5 are full-sized - which is amazing and super rare from a subscription box; let's be honest. I've already had plenty of use out of the products included - there's not a single one I won't utilise in my skincare / beauty / bath obsession fuelled life. Which makes it fantastic value for money in my book.
