So, thankfully with this post I am up to date with my advent calendars even though I am feeling like I should sleep all the time. I hope you all feel better than I do at the moment and like these posts.
So, here are my day 18 goodies:
For me this an infinitely special Memebox.
Mid September I started to speak on Makeuptalk about wanting a dirty girl box, the name originating from watching way too much Frasier growing up... thanks mom.
I wanted a box where you could get dirty before you get clean.
I then went on to email them to request a box with the Dirty girl name and actually naming a product that appeared in this box.
It could all be a coincidence that this box appeared for purchase a few weeks after the email and Makeuptalk discussion or it may be due to that.
I'll never know but either way this is a great box and I will never know either way.
Welcome to the dirty gal box.
Today's advent calendar picks are a bit meh for me today but all are useful to me, but one, and I like opening the calendars as it is exciting and I knew that eventually I would get a meh day. Unfortunately it is going to be that day today.
It has taken me a very long time to review this box mainly because it has taken me a long time to simmer down since I received this thumbs up bloggers box.
In September some bloggers, myself included, received a survey from Memebox asking about our favourite products.
This box was supposed to constructed from that and we all looked forward to it but when we received this we received what seems like a 'ignore the bloggers, put in leftovers box'.
The main thing that points to that is that some of these products were only in the memeboxes after the survey was filled in and sent back. Not really a smart move on memeboxes part.
So, I bring to you the 'thumbs down psychic bloggers memebox'.
I am a bit late to put my code this month but my code to get $5 off $30 (not including p and p) is V6FAQ0 and if you use my link here you also get additional money off at $100 ($5) and $100 ($10 instead of $5)
Thankyou for reading.
I hope you forgive me for being a little behind but we spent today and yesterday swapping two bedrooms in our house so Edward could get a big boy bedroom.
So I had no internet on my company for two days so now I am catching up.
And here I bring you yesterday's advent calendars.
Another day another box but this time I won't get the rage I got with Glossybox as this one has really pleased me with fair size samples and full sized products from luxe brands and a full sized exclusive coin purse.
Memebox globals generally are the creme de la creme of the memeboxes.
So I was quite surprised to receive a global which was more like a leftovers box than a really good global like most of the past ones were.
For me, these are the showcase memeboxes and were actually the first on the market so this is even more disappointing than if it was a themed box.
A better day than yesterday today and today other than the tea light surprising me a little, as it wasn't pink or white or red, all the items are fab and huge size samples for the formats that they are and I am really happy.
I have to admit that when my box arrived I saw the outer box and thought it was a beautiful box but as soon as I opened it I saw the contents and that was where the festive feelings ended.
How this is this the Christmas box I have no idea but to be honest as soon as I saw the contents I cancelled my subscription.
I knew that this box bundle was a risk but despite them being only $19 each I was optimistic and I certainly never expected the bundle to contain a box which contained four low ticket items and that the scent boxes would blow this box out of the water.
But I'll show you why I am so irritated by showing you what I received.
Day 6 and we are back to a meh day and tbh I am really starting to get irritated that the candles have no names on the bottom of them due to the reasoning that if I loved one and wanted to order one online it would be impossible.
But back to the calendar and away with the grumpiness.
Memebox unboxing posts are a bit behind so I am spending the next week catching up, well hopefully, on my older boxes and although these will be unboxings they will at least give you idea of what was in the boxes... just incase they relaese more..... although at the moment the releses are alow and sparse.
But back to the box.
This is the Miracle Mask box, although I am not sure where the miracle is.
I have quite a few sheets masks stashed so when Genie from Geniesfavouriteproducts, who I know from MUT, suggested that we do a #maskgeniechallenge which involves using 5 masks in 10 days I was completely on board with that suggestion.
When I think of skin elixirs I think of serums and essences and ampoules so what I received in this box was surprising and when I saw the spoilers I wasn't too happy but having it here I quite like it.
This box had five items in it that ranged from twenty to forty four dollars and there was no filler products in here so that it is good.
Also all of them but one seem to show English ingredients either partially or in their entirety which is great as I am trying to find products that are not going to dry my skin out.
As part of my latest in beauty Dream box II box I received the Double Buff exfoliator.
I have to admit that I wasn't sure what I would think as I have never used an exfoliator which was purely an exfoliator before, my Soap & Glory cleanser had exfoliating beads in it, so I was wondering whether this would be too rough on my skin.
I seem to be bouncing back and forth between old and new Memeboxes to review and today I will review one that I only received a few hours ago and this is the fall/winter natural make up which arrived with my Skincare Elixir box.
