This box was really exciting as it was the first box with the now merged glambox and rubybox and it was fabulous I started jumping up and down as soon as I opened it. And it is also rubybox’s birthday this month so a very happy birthday to the rubies and here’s to many many more years.
Because this was my first rubybox I was really surprised at how such an eco-friendly packaging could look so glamorous and chic. The cardboard is really thin making it easily recyclable with these glamorous metallic rubybox logo on a matt black box(giving a new meaning to little black box lol)also when you open the box you are greeted by the cutest pink tissue paper and card.
From the contents of the box you definitely can see the rubybox and glambox element if you look at the brands. All products were of great quality and contained a few luxury brands. So let’s get down to the contents.
1. Camilla nail polish- full size (R25.99-10 ml)
There were a variety of colour choices selected by the rubies I was thrilled at the shade I received as I don’t yet have this and was actually hunting it down as it looks exactly like tip top’s watermelon jello (which has now been discontinued from the brand). When I saw this I immediately painted my nails. It goes on really smoothly is very glossy, sheer on 1 coat but after a second coat it looked pigmented, dried really quickly and I am on my 5th day and it still hasn’t chipped yet and the brush is really easy to hold making using it a great pleasure
2. Givenchy very irresistible l’intense-1ml (R945-50ml)
This is edgier than the original with notes of purple plum, Turkish rose, patchouli and white musk. This fragrance is intense and I pick up the white musk and floralness. It lasted me the whole day. I absolutely love changing my perfume all the time and the perfume samples have seemed to become a staple in the monthly boxes which I fabulous because then I get a different perfume to use each month.
3. Jean d’Aveze white lotus cream-15ml (R560-50 ml)
It is packed with white lotus extracts and plumping hyaluronic acid which helps to eliminate dark spots and imperfections for an even tone and glowy, healthy looking skin. This is a very high end product which comes from France. This product smells amazing and is really easily absorbed into the skin. I get rashes from quite a lot of products because I have sensitive skin but this product is suitable for sensitive skin and I have not had any reaction to it.
4. Palmolive Thermal spa Turkish bath-full size (R34.99-250ml)
This is a shower/bath gel which contains a combination of stress-relieving eucalyptus and circulation-boosting steam to recharge both body and mind. Perfect for a long day and to feel pampered like you are at a spa.
5. (New) Piz Buin tan & protect SPF15 lotion-15ml (R190-150ml)
A super moisturising lotion which is non-sticky and sweat-and water-resistant and helps to helps to prevent peeling and to be protected whilst still getting a tan. A lotion with a SPF is so important due to harmful rays of the sun causing premature aging and skin cancer so I never go anywhere without applying some form of SPF. This is great as it protects from both UVA and UVB rays. It smells amazing and is easily absorbed into the skin without the annoying sticky feeling or the fear of it coming off after I have had a swim.
Rubybox is so amazing and I really couldn’t imagine my life without it now. Am officially hooked it makes you feel like it’s your birthday each month.
