No, it’s not a typo in the heading. This box is indeed Apr 2016’s. I just missed reviewing it!. Even though the box is old, my opinion about the products in the box is new right?. Lol, so I decided to do the review anyways 🙂
The box concentrates on skincare products, which I love. Onto the products, in detail :
● Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash – This face wash’s main ingredient is Neem, known for its purifying, antiseptic properties. This product helps fight pimples, prevents acne marks & cleanses impurities and keeps bacteria that causes pimples away. This is a highly effective herbal cleanser, perfect for those with oily skin. However, it does not suit me since I have normal / dry skin. I gave it to my father who has oily skin and he absolutely loved it. It came in a full sized 50 ml tube, along with a flyer about it.
● Pond’s Flawless white Visible Lightening Day Cream – I am not one who wants to achieve ‘lighter, fairer’ skin. I don’t see the need to set that as a goal. That being said, this cream is so lightweight and creamy and I love it. Only a little goes a long way. So, work with small amounts. I finished this tub completely and to say the truth, I did find my skin to be more luminous and lighter in color. It’s light pink in colr and came in a full sized tub containing 50g.
● Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising Mist with SPF 30– Sunscreen in a mist form?. Sign me up!. Lol. This is such a fantastic & convenient concept. The mist feels soothing and moisturizing on the skin while giving a protection of SPF 30 throughout the day. It came in a spray bottle containing 50ml. I have it in my purse for protection on the go. Love this one ♡
● Lady Speed Stick Fresh & Essence – This deodorant/anti-perspirant roll on is quite nice. It has a fresh scent. But unfortunately, it is not long lasting. It came as a 50ml roll on. There was a larger than life sized brochure too, in the box. I found it really creative!
● Hiluxe HI Color & Shine Nail Laquer – This is a 5 Free nail polish by the brand Eleanor. It’s in the color NH03 Pretty Purple and is a cool toned purple, which is pleasing to the eyes. In the pic below, I have applied double coat on all fingers except on the little finger, which has a single coat. You can see the difference.
Forgive my ‘not so good’ application. I rushed while applying it, this time. The bottle contains 9ml. Even though its a nice color, it started chipping really fast. Am talking about the second day itself!. I don’t even bite my nails.. I dislike it’s quality.
● Jane Iredale Just Kiss Lip & Cheek Stain – This is such a magical product. I was quite disappointed at first to see the color of this lipstick. I thought it wouldn’t match me.
However, I was in for a pleasant surprise when I swatched it!. It turned the most gorgeous shade of natural pink, on my lips. It’s superb. On the hand though, the color is barely visible and looks more peachy. I haven’t tried it as a cheek stain. Here are the hand and lip swatches :
● Quizas Loewe Seduccion Eau de parfum – A sample sachet of perfume, containing 1 ml was also included in the box. This one has a very strong scent, which is usual for a men’s perfume. However, this is a women’s perfume and I am surprised by how bold it is. It has notes of Passion Fruit, Blackberry along with Jasmine, Tuberose and the seduction of Vanilla & Caramel. Too strong for me but my husband loved it..
