Because why not?

Marie Claire The Parcel - December 2016 | Summer Edition

26 December 2016

My very last Marie Claire box has arrived, the Summer 2016 edition is jam packed but failed to impress.


Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturiser in Light/Medium - Full size 221ml, RRP $10.99
Gradual tanner that I'm actually interested in trying out, I'm not one to fake tan but I think I'd be happy to give this a go on my legs.

Banana Boat Sun Comfort Lotion SPF 50+ - Sample size 59ml, approx. value $5.72
This is supposed to allow sand to brush off easily, not sure if that claim would be true, it feels no different to other body sun lotions and I'm not really interested in testing it out because sand is Mother Nature's way of torturing people, however the sunscreen smells great, kind of like pineapple and coconut, so I will happily use it.

Avene Micellar Lotion - Full size 200ml, RRP $30.95
Makeup remover, handy item.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor - Full size, RRP $14.25
This is my favourite item in the box, something I feel is necessary but overpriced and hate spending money on. Happy camper.

Klorane Quinine Conditioner - Full size 150ml, RRP $13.95
Conditioner aimed at preventing hair loss by strengthening the hair at the root, would happily try it out but it smell heavily of cheap cologne.


Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads - Sample size 5 pads, approx. value $2.49
Glycolic acid based face wipes, I've used these in the past and they don't really impress me but work fine as a quick toner application.

Moroccan Oil Treatment - Sample size 10ml, approx. value $5.99
Probably one of the most well known hair oils on the market, my hair responds well to this stuff so I'm happy to have it.

Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask - Sample size 10ml, approx. value $2.85
I'm sure I've heard good things about this mask so I'm willing to put aside the fact that it's a sachet sample and give it a go.

Nude By Nature Sheer Glow BB Cream - Sample size 15ml, approx. value $14.97
Light coverage BB cream, colour is too dark for me so I won't hang on to this.

Palmer's Coconut Oil Body Lotion - Sample size 50ml, approx value $1.47
Coconut oil based body moisturiser, I'll patch test this since I've had reactions to a Palmer's product in the past and if all goes well I'll definitely use it.

Approximate value of contents: $103.61

Looking back at a year of Marie Claire The Parcel boxes:
Cost of subscription: $99.00AUD (4 boxes)
Total # of items received: 37 (17 full size, 20 samples)
Approximate value of contents over the year: $416.38

I really don't mind Marie Claire's The Parcel, it's on the affordable side and sometimes they really hit the mark with the boxes but I'm ok with letting this one go in 2017.
