One of the best things about a new season is the arrival of another new Marie Claire The Parcel subscription box!
Marie Claire's The Parcel Autumn Edit arrived at my home two weeks ago.
Listed below in alphabetical order are all the products I received in the Marie Claire The Parcel Autumn Edit. I have quoted the product information that The Parcel provides on its information card in italic print and I've followed this with my comments in normal print.
Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Cream
"Upon first contact, this clever cream auto-adjusts to each skin tone, working immediately to illuminate and smooth skin, while the added antioxidants work long-term to tackle wrinkles, dark spots and dehydration."
This Garnier anti-ageing miracle cream sounds brilliant and exactly like what my 40+ year old skin needs at this point in time! I love the sound of both the immediate and longer term benefits it claims to result in. 7 anti-ageing actives - wow! My skin definitely needs this!
"This multi award-winning serum works to repair and reactivate the 10 visible signs of youthful-looking skin. After cleansing and before moisturising apply three drops evenly across your face and neck each morning and evening for skin that instantly looks smoother and more supple and luminous."
I'm currently trialling another luxurious Lancome product, Renergie Multi-lift cream, which I'm absolutely loving and finding really suited to my 40+ year old skin so I'm looking forward to trialling this Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate also. I love how The Parcel includes deluxe sized samples of high end products because I'm often hesitant to buy such expensive products without adequately trialling them beforehand.
"Enriched with 20 per cent shea butter, this balm penetrates quickly to protect and nourish even the driest skin. With one sold every three seconds, we have no doubt that you'll love this hydrating hand cream."
Having said that this sample sized hand cream will be very convenient for popping into my handbag especially in the upcoming drying autumn and winter seasons and for travelling with.
"No matter which make-up trend you're sporting this season, beautifully defined lashes are essential. This slender wand with shorter bristles ensures that every lash is coated from root to tip - make-up guru Pat McGrath used this backstage at the Victoria Beckham show at New York Fashion Week for a naturally full effect."
MOR Emporium Classics Snow Gardenia Triple-Milled Soap
"Hand-wrapped in tissue paper, these triple-milled soaps add a touch of luxury to every day. They combine floral notes of gardenia with sweet almond oil, shea butter and vitamin E to leave the skin feeling nourished and fragranced."
As soon as I removed the plastic wrapping from this subscription box I could smell the gorgeous gardenia scent of this soap. Absolutely divine! I look forward to pampering myself with this soap. I love the fact it also contains shea butter.
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
"Nothing beats the convenience of a cleansing towelette. Wipe away all traces of dirt, oil and make-up in one easy step and, unlike other wipes that can cause irritation, these ultra-soft cloths can remove even waterproof mascara without stinging your eyes."
Rimmel BB Cream Radiance in Medium
"Due to hit stores next month, we're delighted to be able to offer you this exclusive preview. Formulated with skin-brightening vitamin C complex and comforting shea butter to tackle winter dehydration, this do-it-all skin perfecter will leave you looking naturally glowing."
Full Size. Value: $14.25.
"Make your morning go a little smoother with this nifty razor. The water-activated moisturising serum hydrates for up to two hours post-shave, while five blades with skin guards provide closeness minus the nicks, so you get silky legs every time."
In conclusion Marie Claire's The Parcel subscription boxes are continuing to impress me. The products once again have been well selected to match the upcoming season, in this case autumn, and are a good mix of new products and old favourites. There is nothing in this box that I won't use!
The value of this box is fantastic. This season I calculate the value of the box to be $116.64. For a small outlay of $25 this represents absolutely brilliant value! I will definitely be continuing to subscribe to this box.
