Was delighted when I received my *August Libbie Box earlier in the week. For details on the Libbie Box and the July 2016 box please see my previous review here. The August Libbie Box contained the following three full size items (worth over £53 – prices of products may vary online so could work out cheaper), additional sachet samples this month and product information card:
NIZZ COSMETICS LUSTRE LIPSTICK IN ‘CASHMERE NUDE’ – £16
I had heard of the brand but had never tried any of their products – The brand was founded by a Nurse turned Beauty Buff Charlene and they state that Nizz Cosmetics specialise in creating vegetarian, hypoallergenic, parafen free lip colours. The lipstick is described as being a fab lustre lipstick made with luxurious blend of fair trade butter, oils and waxes for an ultra smooth application and the creamiest finish. My initial thoughts were I loved the chic silver tone unique packaging and the way you could see the colour of the lipstick at the bottom. I was bit disappointed when seen the colour but loved the smooth application, glides onto the lips, colour is buildable and has a beautiful creamy consistency and left / leaves my lips hydrated not dry at all – although would have preferred a different colour this is the perfect colour when you prefer a cool tone nude lip. Definitely would recommend trying these lipsticks. I intend to purchase in a different colour – maybe the Rose Nude.
INDEED LABS NANOBLUR– 30ML – 15% off Now £16.99
This is a brand I had heard off but never got round to trying so was happy to see it included in this months box. The cream is described as instantly correcting and perfecting the appearance of your skin, miracle in a tube, whether used directly on moisturised skin or on top of your makeup. Nanoblur noticeably reduces the signs of skin ageing, including fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s-feet and enlarged pores. You are advised, without makeup – apply over moisturised skin, with makeup – pat gently over liquid foundation or under pressed / loose powder. I used this product as directed and although I found the cream slightly sticky at the beginning this only lasts a short time and the trick is less is more – you need very little product and the results are excellent – leaves your skin smooth and refreshed, my concern would be fine lines round the eyes and this is perfect for that – definitely reduces the appearance of any fine lines and I believe you would achieve / see even better results if you had deeper lines too – no strong fragrance either which I love – definitely will consider purchasing once I use this up but I believe this will last a period of time as I personally find you do not need much product. Although cream worked all ways for me my preference is mixed with moisturiser but happy with the results either way. Highly recommend.
MIZON PLACENTA AMPOULE CREAM – (50ml) – 20% off Now £20.40
I had never heard of this brand or this product before – but the name alone is slightly off-putting. However information card states the Placenta Ampoule Cream contains no animal products, instead utilises nutrient-rich plant placenta to promote skin regeneration. Described as a double functioning ampoule cream to improve whitening and wrinkles. You are advised to apply onto clean skin at the last stage of skincare. It is a thick cream with a spongy consistency and thankfully has no overpowering fragrance. I applied as advised and found it sank in quickly, not greasy and although I did not have any breakouts, reactions and it did initially leave a slight glow to the skin, did not notice any real difference to the appearance of my skin and although will try it for another week to see if I notice any benefits I currently could not recommend this product. However if I see any changes after further use will update this post.
