Carmine - October Box. . .

. . . . Yep, I got sucked into another box! On the blog of 'Yummy Mummy Beauty Blog' if you subscribed by Monday 17th Oct, you'd get the beauty box half price. Constant nagging to the bro to lend me some cash paid off, and my beauty box landed on my front door 4days after. 

. . .And this is what I got:

  • Balance Me 'Super Moisturising Hand Cream'
  • Daniel Sandler 'Eye Delight in Peach'
  • Trind 'Nail Repair Natural' (Full size)
  • TheBalm 'FratBoy All-in-one shadow/blush (Full size)
  • Caudalie 'Quenching Sorbet-Creme
I have to say in comparison to that of Boudoir Prive, I feel like I can relate to a lot more in this box; it's suited for my age bracket, and I can see myself using everything. I won't go on too much about this box, as there are loads of Carmine beauty box reviews, but a few things I will say is this:
  • The leaflet detailing the products included in the box are not priced; there is no information explaining full sized product costs which is really annoying. But the prices are on the Carmine website, which are as follows:
    •  Balance Me 'Super Moisturising Hand Cream' 100ml - £14.50
    •  Daniel Sandler 'Eye Delight in Peach' - £10.25
    •  Trind 'Nail Repair Natural' 9ml - £12.95
    •  TheBalm 'FratBoy All-in-one shadow/blush - £16.34
    •  Caudalie 'Quenching Sorbet-Creme 40ml - £20.00
  • Getting into the box - what a mission! It took me about 10minutes to get into it, before giving up, and giving it to my mum to open. 
  •  Found the inside packaging (the shredded paper) to be a little on the scanty side, which resulted in all my products settling in one end of the beauty box.
Regardless of the minor grumbles, I do quite like this box, and I shall continue trialling until December, before deciding whether or not it is a box suited for me.

So what do you think of the first box? Are you going to subscribe to Carmine? Or are you not convinced, and had enough of beauty boxes?
