Marie Claire’s The Parcel: Winter 2016

Hey friends!

So, I usually film my unboxings but I refuse to get out of my monkey onesie and don’t think it’s “socially acceptable” to post a video of myself in it… so blog post it is!

I’ve spoken about The Parcel sooo many times before but as a quick summary – curated by magazine Marie Claire, quarterly & pretty deece!

I received my box this morning and without further-a-do, here’s what’s inside!


JOHN FRIEDA Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Anti-Frizz Primer 100ml, $16.99
We received John Frieda in a previous box and I am yet to use those! I do get frizzy hair but I also have thin hair which means that some of these “smoothing, de-frizz” products weighs my hair down quite a bit. I’m hoping that this doesn’t do the same! This month we got a leave-in treatment. Excited to see how it goes!

GARNIER Wake Up Cream 30ml, $19.99
Having used the Garnier Night Time cream, I have high hopes for this one!

NIVEA Sensitive Caring Micellar Water 200ml, $9.97
I love micellar water but have never used this Nivea one before. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it so I’ll let you know how it goes!

BURT’S BEES Tinted Lipbalm 4.25g, $12.95
I have about 1000 lipbalms going at the moment so this will have to take a seat in my reserve for a while.


COLGATE OPTIC WHITE High Impact White 85g, $9.99
Colgate are going all out with this toothpaste with booths in supermarkets and red carpets and things so I’m not surprised that we received this sample. As an avid coffee drinker, I am in need of teeth whitening so hopefully this works out!

RITUALS COSMETICS Fortune Oil 200ml, $18
I initially thought this was a facial oil BUT it’s actually a shower gel kind of thing. As soona s the oil hits water, it turns into a foamy lather. i love the sound of this and am excited to try it out!

KLORANE Shampoo with Quinine and B Vitamins 400ml $20.95
“Designed especially for weakened hair…”. Yup, got my attention.

MOR Rosa Noir Hand & Body Milk 500ml, $39.95
Ok I swear i’ve gotten this exact same hand cream (scent and all) in another subscription box last year. Anyway, we’ve seen MOR in last months box but in the form of a soap.

THE BODY SHOP Drops of Youth Concentrate 50ml, $69.95
I’m excited to try this! It uses plant stem cell technology to encourage the skin’s natural renewal process.

GARNIER BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector 50ml, $13.95
Meh. Wrong shade.
