Because why not?

Marie Claire - The Parcel Ageless | Autumn 2016 Edit

15 March 2016

I have gone subscription box crazy. I have somehow found myself subscribed to 4 different boxes, all with year long subscriptions but three of them are only bi-monthly or quarterly boxes. Justify!

I had high hopes for the Marie Claire Ageless Parcel, I've seen some impressive unboxings of the standard box so it makes sense that I would expect great things right? I'm just going to get in to the contents and save my opinions for the end.

Essano Rosehip Collagen Repair Serum Full Size RRP $29.99
A rosehip serum aimed at plumping fine lines, tightening pores and improving elasticity. I really love rosehip oil so this will get some use for sure.

Garnier Miracle Sleeping Cream Full Size RRP $19.99
A night cream with the benefits of a mask but the feel of a lotion. Dear God, I do not need any more moisturisers. I like to think that I'll use it but it'll likely sit on my stash for a year until I have another clean out.

Elucent Whitening Hand Cream Full Size RRP $24.99
A hand cream that contains vitamin C to brighten, vitamin E to hydrate and B3 to even skin tone. I'm not jumping for joy over this, I generally don't care for whitening products and since I've found my Holy Grail hand cream I'm not chomping at the bit to try this.

Tresemme Fullness Emulsion Spray Full Size RRP $10.99
Thickening spray for the hair. I hate the spray applicator on this, it's like a jet stream of fluid rather than a spritz, I will however try this because I'm still on the hunt for an easily accessible thickening and volumising product.

Lonvitalite Collagen Crystal Eye Mask Sample Approx Value $5.33
Collagen eye mask to help brighten dark circles and reduce fine lines. I've tried these before and don't mind them so this will definitely be used.

Elizabeth Arden Pro Triple Action Protector Sample Approx Value $29.70
A tinted moisturiser with SPF that is supposed to fix all your ageing woes. I'm not in to this, in the video I said I'd try it out but I've come to my senses. I don't like tinted, oily, sunscreen/moisturiser things, I like products that are targeted and do one job well instead of five jobs badly.

Value of box $120.99

You can probably gather that I'm not overwhelmed by the products in the box but this is simply personal preference, I can't slam it because MY GOD THOSE FULL SIZE PRODUCTS!!!

I also feel that the value is really damn good and lets face it, the box would likely be well received by many, just because I'm being picky doesn't make it a crap box. If you are interested in trying more 'drug store' branded products then I would definitely say this is a good option.
