I am very, very excited to get this product. First, on my beauty box wishlist blog post, I asked for Dermalogica anything :) Second, whenever I get a facial from my esthetician, she only uses Dermalogica and gave me samples to take home. I couldn't live without the skin smoothing cream, so I got that from her, but as this line is quite pricey, I couldn't get anything else at the time. I still had tiny samples of this, but now I have a giant 13 gram sample so I'm quite stoked. You just have to put a dime-sized amount onto wet hands, make a paste and massage on your face, then rinse. It is the most gentle exfoliant ever!
|China Glaze Polish in Mediterranean Charm|
I am also quite happy to receive this - a full-sized polish and in a nice deep red. Here is another view:
I do not have many reds, so this is a welcome addition to my polish collection. I have not had the best of luck though with this brand; their neons always majorly chip fast. But bright colours tend to do that; this is a darker shade so I'll give it a go.
|CHI Silk Infusion|
The card: "This leave-in reconstructing treatment, enriched with pure natural silk, wheat, and soy proteins protects your hair against thermal styling and environmental damages while giving your hair incredible lustre. Alcohol free, enriched with pure silk and wheat and soy proteins". (Full size - 50 ml- $15; 150 ml - $25; 300ml - $42).
Also am quite excited for this, as my wishlist post also listed serum to combate the frizzies. I have never tried CHI but have only heard good things. You can use this product on wet or dry hair and this sample size is 15 ml, which is not bad considering you only need a pea-sized amount. A little goes a long way!
|L'Air by Nina Ricci|
Ahh, this scent is amazing. I already have and love L'Air du Temps - I asked for and got the full size for Christmas, but I think I like this one even more. It's just like the card says, a bit fresher and a bit more modern - and smells very soft and feminine. Even the sample bottle is gorg!
So that was my February Luxe Box. Overall, I loved it; I got four products that I really like and will definitely use up. I thought that because they collaborated with Flare this month that all they boxes would be the same, but I looked up some other unboxings and it looks like there were several different ones that went out. If you got a February box, what did you think and what did you get?
