FeelUnique - October Box

It's time to review this box! This was my first FeelUnique beauty box and gets thumps up all the way from me.
First, the actual box. I like the colours: black on the outside and the fuchsia inside - I adore Fuchsia btw.
Also the drawer type of aperture which makes it really sturdy and it's a good size as well (a tad smaller than the other brands).

Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash

Really excited to receive this one. I like to try different face washes, because I don't like to use the same one all time and give my skin a change. This product is a two-in-one exfoliant, the granules are very small and not too abrasive so suitable to use every day. I've been using it since I got it and I didn't experience any tightness or spots. It also smells so good, like candy floss. :)
Also, I always wanted to try Bliss, especially the FatGirlSlim but never got around to buy it (anybody recommend it??!!) - I haven't been disappointed by the brand and I would purchase this wash in the future.

TIGI Catwalk Sleek Mystique Straight Collection Blow Out Balm

If you read any of my previous beauty box reviews, you'll know I'm not a fan of styling products; I just don't like to add unnecessary chemicals to my hair. Anyway, for a second I got excited about this one because, as you can see in the pictures, It has got some sparking particles in it. Unfortunately, I didn't see any difference to my hair whatsoever, so this item will go in the swap pile.

Crabtree & Evelyn India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy

My god - can a hand cream have a longer name??!!
Anyway, I devour hand creams so this is definitely a product that won't go to waste. 
It's a posh hand cream - something that I wouldn't normally buy - but it will be a nice treat for my poor hands, for sure. Nice smell and right consistency (not too thick).

Orly Nail Lacquer in Naughty

Unfortunately, the brush of my bottle is split in half and I haven't received a replacement yet so I will do a separate post when I'll be able to try it.
All I can say for now is that I like the colour and I know the brand but I never tried it before.

Caudalie Vinexpert Radiance Day Fluid SPF10

Caudalie - another brand I've read so much about and I always wanted to try and here is my chance now! :)
This is a day cream which also offers firming, protective and anti-wrinkle actions during the day. 
I definitely noticed a radiance enhancement as soon as I apply it but the smell is too strong I'm afraid, and that;s reason why I'm not planning to purchase it again. It's a shame as I'm liking the performance of the product. Also, It's described as 'fluid' and I would expect a lighter consistency as gel, serum maybe but It just feels like a cream really.
The other criticism would be with the packaging: it's too big for the actually amount of cream in fact it feels like it's empty (and I'm sure you all read the complaints on their Facebook page).

Burberry Body Eau de Parfum

This is a 6th bonus item so I don't mind it's a parfum. I actually ordered a sample on their Facebook page few weeks ago but I never received it so I'm glad I can try it anyway because... I like it!

All in all, I love this box and I'll keep my subscription for now; maybe, I'd like a make up item in the next one (I don't see nail polish as make up, personally)...
All products are for sale on FeelUnique.com, of course - and if you order before the 31th of October, you can get 10% off with code BBOCT10

are you going to take advantage of the discount?


  1. this is the subscription I'm sticking with too! though I'm surprised about the Tigi, I thought it was fab! I hate straightening my hair and I would never do it every day, but it leaves my hair poker straight and shiny! my only complaint is that it feels so nice I touch it too much and it gets greasy by the end of the day, but I have to wash my hair everyday anyway!

  2. I bought the caudalie face cream - love it and really notice a difference in my skin. I like the fact that I could use just about everything in the box (nail varnish too bright, went to a colleague who was pleased). The cheapest box and one of the ones I liked the best x

  3. I love the feelunique box! I have suffered breakouts since using the Bliss product - sad times, I never ever get spots! x x

  4. The Bliss product sounds amazing - a facial wash that smells like cotton candy?! I have to try that!


  5. Love the goodies you got inside the box Xx

  6. the nail polish looks really good. :)
    thanks for commenting on my blog.following yyyyou now.please follow back if you like my beauty and fashion blog. :)

  7. I tried the parfum here in italy too.. I love it! probably I will be able to have a free tester soon (full size!) :D
