The Parcel by Marie Claire: Spring Edit 

YASSS! My Spring edition of The Parcel has arrived! To be honest, as I have an annual subscription (paid for up front), I totally forgot that it was coming! What a pleasant surprise!!

I had high expectations whilst opening this box up! I had a think about what kind of items would be included in a Spring themed box and my mind gravitated towards pink lipsticks, floral scented perfume and oils – natural products.

What I did receive was:

st-tropST. TROPEZ
Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse
Sample Size received – 50mL $12.49
I’m not really into tanning products but this product is apparently very popular with one sold every minute! For best results, the St Tropez Mitt is recommended (and included!)

ST. TROPEZ
Applicator Mitt
Full Size received – $11.99
Yay for continuity! Recommending use with something and actually including it is a win!

cocolab
C*LAB & CO
Coffee & Coconut Scrub
Full Size received – 100g $9.95
I’ll be baring a lot more skin this summer so a good scrub goes a long way!

mask
THE BODY SHOP
Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask
Sample Size received – 5mL $2.99
This has been allll over my instagram feed lately and I love a good charcoal mask. Excited to give this one a go!

mor
MOR
Mon Amie Adèle Luminous Body Milk
Full Size Recieved – 80mL $16.95
Is it just me or is there always a MOR product in these boxes!?

perfume
NARCISO RODRIGUEZ
For Her Eau De Toilette
Sample Size received – 4mL $10 ( HOLY COW!)
Yas just as I predicted – floral scent!

SUNSENSE
Sensitive Invisible SPF 50+
Sample Size received – 10g $1.46
I love trying out new sunscreen – I’m on a mission to find the most transparent one!

NUDE BY NATURE
Natural Mineral Cover
Sample Size received – 2g $5.32
Made of natural ingredients like kaolin clay, this mineral foundation is meant to adapt to your skin tone and cover redness and pigmentation. Unfortunately this shade, medium, was a little too light for me but it did have a nice effect on the skin!

nuxe
NUXE HUILE PRODIGIEUSE
Multi Purpose Dry Oil For Face, Body and Hair
Sample Size received – 10mL $5.39
Nuxe have gorgeous oils so I’m looking forward to trying this dry one.

essano
ESSANO
Argan Oil Of Morocco Duo-Pack
Full Size received – x2 50mL $15.99
For someone with thin, light hair, the inclusion of oil in a hair product scares the living daylights out of me so it’ll be interesting to see if this shampoo and conditioner turn out to be lightweight!

mny1mny
MAYBELLINE NEW YORK
The Nudes Palette
Full Size received – $25.95
Although I’ve tried the Blushed Nudes palette before, I had never even swatched the original! It’s actually really good for a drugstore palette! The shimmer shades are gorgeous and apply pretty well and the mattes are pretty pigmented. However, they don’t blend as well as matte shades should but they’re decent for their price.

Total Box Value: $130.97
Um HOLY moly! For a $25 box that is QUITE a super-awesome deal!

Please note: This box was NOT gifted or provided for review. I just really love The Parcel as they are consistently great at curating on trend boxes full of value!
