February rubybox 2014

Being the month of love rubybox made sure all items included were to prepare rubies to be “date ready” so to speak and I’m sure each ruby must have fallen in love with all the amazing products included this month. So let’s get down to what I received:

1. ESSE deep moisturiser-5ml (R319.95-50ml)

This is a proudly south african brand packed with all natural ingredients. The marula oil and olive leaf penetrates the skin below the surface and treats dry skin and fine lines. I get an uneasy feeling when I see products specifically fomulated for dry skin as they often make me look like an oil slick the next morning but this one really surprised me as it moisturised really well but still nicely matified my skin.

2. PIZ BUIN in the sun lipstick SPF 30-full size (R41.95)

A nice lippie with an SPF to apply before the lipstick that came in the box. Can’t get over the amazing vanilla scent of this one.

3. Shield women clinical protection in summer fresh-full size (R69.95)

Was interested to give this one a go as I have had many situations where I have forgotten to apply a roll on or the effects have worn off by the time I gym in the evenings and perfumes can’t cover that horrid scent. Wow 2 clicks of the applicator applied to arm pits before bed and 48 hours of protection sounds like a miracle in a bottle. And wow was I impressed even hectic scrubbing while shower does affect the lasting power and it doesn’t contain any alcohol, it is quite creamy and moisturising and it dries in a flash unlike normal roll ons where I have to wait at least 5 mins before I dress in fear of ruining my clothing.

4. Yardley colour rush lipstick in frosted pink-full size (RR69.95)

This lippie has gorgeous colour payoff and fades subtly throughout the day. Perfect colour to pucker up for vday. The packaging looks sophisticated and is sturdy. The scent is a pomegranate scent but luckily is not that noticeable once applied. It also has a nice shimmer in it.

5. Vital rice cakes

A nice snack for the day.

6.Discount coupons to purchase crocs
