What an amazing product. Super hydrating and need to apply only a little bit.
I LOVE this product! I was holding off from buying a new moisturiser for so long hoping the box would have one! I have horrible dry skin and this has made my skin feel so nice and refreshed! The smell is even good! It feels really nice rubbing into the skin too, not too thick but not too thin of a consistency either! 10/10 product! Going to go look for some more products from this brand now
I squealed when I saw this in my box! I still use the night cream of this from the last beauty box and it's become a must in my routine.
First off everything about the manuka dr products screams quality the packaging, the branding, the smell, the texture. It just really feels like such a treat!
As far as actual review - so I've been using daily since I received my box instead of my gorgeous moisturizer from Lush (which I thought was my holy grail moisturizer) and my skin texture has already improved. This formula soaked in so easily leaving my skin feeling taut but not tight. I've found that my makeup sits better and lasts longer too.
I have quite sensitive dry skin and haven't reacted at all - well I have but positively my skin practically glows after use!
I love this product and want to try more Manuka Doctor but need to save my pennies pre wedding haha.
This is my new moisturiser for the day time! I love this so much! it doesn't leave me oily or anything, I feel so moisturised and fresh after using it, there's no ridiculous smell or anything it's light and I just love it, and the size is perfect it's not tiny and not huge!
This is amaaaaazing and the smell is so divine!!!
I love this! My skin has been going crazy lately and I've been using this every morning since I got it and my skin feels super soft and isn't breaking out as much so maybe my old moisturiser was the cause of my break outs. Absolutely obsessed and I'll definitely be repurchasing!
Oh this is amazing! Smells nice and makes my skin super hydrated and soft! 100/10 and a little goes such a long way!!
Skinfood Mud Masque
Stockists include selected supermarkets & online at www.skinfood.co.nz
Yes I loved it! It draws out oil like the glam glow mask, left my skin super smooth
I love this! you can see the mask drawing out all the yuck stuff from in your skin and then afterwards you feel like a baby ❤️
Love this mask used it before and makes my skin feel so fresh and awake! I have very oily skin and i find it helps control it 😊
Bought this after receiving the sample from the previous box. Love it and makes my skin feel like sleek, clean, refreshed and amazing
I already own this although mine it almost out, perfect timing I think! I did actually this after rave reviews on MUO. Love this mask it makes my skin feel so good after! Love that you can buy it at the supermarket as well.
Literally sitting with this on right now while I study 😂 this is the third one I now own of these. I absolutely love it! Makes my skin feel so refreshed and smooth!
Absolutely love this. Already have an open one so I know I love it
I buy this constantly. I'm so glad this came in the box cause this is my go to face mask. It's so refreshing and makes you feel so clean when you wash it off
After my sample in the last box I buy this for myself, husband and son. If it wasn't for the beauty boxes I would never have tried it so I would be missing out on all this goodness! It has encouraged me to try their other products too
I've used this one before & have purchased for friends overseas. Such a great mask for value! I do find I'm quite red after using but that goes away quickly. I find I'm much less oily the next day which is definitely a massive positive in my world!! Another bonus is that it's easy to find in NZ!
Love it! Have been using this awhile now. Cleans my pores right out and leaves my skin super smooth! I always look forward to using it.
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Sculpt Contouring Palette
Stockists include Farmers, K Mart & selected pharmacies
I got the light/ medium shade of this. I've never used a cream contour before & was surprised at how much I liked this! Was so easy to use & looked so natural! This was one of my favourite products in the box! Definitely will purchase again!! ❤️❤️
I received the 01 Light/Medium compact & I love it. It matches my pale skin amazingly. It is one of the easiest contour kits that I have used and I find that it's super easy for people who aren't really in the knowledge of contouring. I also love the fact that it's creamy but dries as powder, making it that much easier to blend 😍 one of my favourites from my MUO box and will definitely repurchase this for myself and for my loved ones!
I love this product!! I am not the greatest at contouring but this makes it so easy!!! It makes it so much easier to blend so you don't have the dreaded streak on your face - 10/10 for this product
Such a nice formula! Really easy to blend and it's very buildable! Usually not a fan of cream contour but I really love this and have used it every day since!
I got 01 light and I'm in love. This is the first contour that's really worked for me, it's easily blend able with my brush and so subtle, which I love. Also product goes a long way. I loved the instructions that came with is because I'm still new to contouring it was super helpful
I received the medium dark, and thought it would be too dark so put it aside. Then remembered we had to review everything so thought I would give it a go. And boy am I glad I did! Firstly I love it's so compact. Only 2 colours is all I need perfect for travel or just in makeup bag ( said like one of those people who has a makeup bag haha). Secondly the texture is amazing it blends like a dream and didn't look cakey on top of my base #iaintnobakery . Basically this compact is bomb, it give me all I need and I love that it didn't try and put a shitty brush or sponge that we all know does nothing. 👐 I am very happy with this one!
I received the medium/ dark & I really like it for my pale skin. I had thought it would be too dark but it works! Loving it. This is my first "proper" try at a contour kit & I found this really simple to use. Great kit for beginners (like myself) & I like the creamy texture. I would have loved to see an application brush as I have no idea what to use so just winged it 😂 Will figure that out soon tho & can't wait to do more practicing! Will def repurchase
Tried the contour shade yesterday and found it really easy to blend out!! Love the colour, packaging, formula and everything about this!
This is so cool for beginners the formula is extra creamy and so easy to blend out, I love how there are only 1 highlight and 1 contour so you don't have to pick and choose the right ones if that makes sense. It's super portable and easy to travel with. So nothing to complain about but I thought the spot where the how to book went was a little odd you'd normally have a brush there wouldn't you? This product is lightweight and although it doesn't have a high coverage it's very buildable 😊 I'd defiantly buy this again
The Body Shop Cheek & Lip Stain
Stockists- instore, & online www.thebodyshop.co.nz
I've never used a product like this before, and to be honest when I first saw it I thought that I wouldn't use it or like it.... Well I'm mistaken! I got the darker shade and I tried it on my lips when I had no other make up on and it looks so pretty! Definitely keen to use this on the days where I've got nothing on my face, or if I'm going for a more natural "no make up" look. Haven't tried it on the cheeks yet but I could use up the whole product on my lips alone!
I love how subtle the colour is and how it applies. It lasted ages and looked good the whole time
Im not a lip tint fan, but i can report back what my niece (18years might i add) said about it. She loves it, not thick and sticky and she wears it all the time for a natural look (what ever to impress the guy next door 😂) but i guess its working. She will def be purchasing this lip tint again.
I am a fan of subtle colour and this really delivers. long lasting without creating an obvious 'wearing lip product' look. great for days when you don't want to have to continuously reapply your makeup.
IN LOVE! I received the cherry shade and have to say I am SUPER impressed ❤️ I've never really used a tint so was a bit suspicious at first but after a few goes of wearing it on my lips I am absolutely hooked, I find myself applying it quickly before heading out the door and just love how nice and long it lasts ❤️👍🏼 10/10 and would definately repurchase
I love this as a cheek stain, not sold on the lip stain but it's so nice on the cheeks
I got the red one 03. I don't wear lipstick a whole lot and love this for everyday wear. It looks really good under lipgloss. Looks great if you are wearing minimal makeup. Smelt and tasted really good too! Packing os nice and simple. I will certainly be repurchasing this product in the future.
I love this product and have purchased it in the past and will continue to purchase it :) I haven't yet mastered how to use it as a cheek stain but i'm sure in time i will get there. because i bite my nails i love using lip tints as the colour doesn't get on my hands ( yes i know i should stop but its hard and I've tried ) I usually put a clear lip balm or gloss over the top as well. I also love this particular lip tint as its the only one that doesn't get discoloured like a few other brands i have tried. Was so happy to receive this item in the box :)
LOVE! I haven't used a stain before so I was excited to see this. It wasn't too thick & sticky on my lips & I like the shade (03 Red) for a natural & everyday look. I used a few swipes on my cheeks & also love that! My cheeks don't feel sticky & there is just a slight tinge of colour to make me feel rosy ☺💜
Blistex Happy Lips Mango Lip Balm
Stockists include Farmers, K Mart & selected pharmacies & supermarkets
Blistex is synonymous with happy lips!!! It smells so good and with SPF is perfect for days at the beach or park - roll around summer! I forgot how much I love BListex
This smells AMAZING!! I'm a serial lip balm applier so am always excited to try new ones out!! I find that I can apply every hour and it doesn't wear off too quickly or dry my lips out (some lip balms make my lips worse off!). The fact that it has SPF as well puts it in my good books for summer! Will be repurchasing if I see it around :)
Love it!! Stays on for ages & really hydrating, smells like orange/mango Raro! :)
I love this! I've been using it all weekend. Has helped my cracked lips so much and they're so smooth! This is my new fave lip balm. It doesn't make them feel worse afterwards like some other lip balms. Will definitely repurchase when it runs out!
This is my new in pocket on the go lip balm, I think the packaging is so cute and it smells so yum and it moisturises my lips too so I have no qualms with this product 😎
This lipbalm was awesome!smells great and very moisturising!! Always in my pocket everywhere i go! Love the packaging as well super cute!
This lipbalm now lives with me! I absolutely love the smell, it doesn't leave my lips feeling overly greasy but still moisturised!
I love this product as baby lips is always my goto, smells amazing and shh taste good too lol. And most of all it keeps my lips soft.
Smells yummy, so handy to have in your bag for everyday use. I actually love this one ❤️ I get such dry lips.
Love these lip balms so much!! The smell is amazing. I've been using it everyday since I received it
Yummy smells amazing and delicious! My lips feel super moisturised too!
This is officially my favourite lip balm. Smells (and tastes) amazing! Definitely makes my lips feel really moisturised and stays on for so long which is definitely a plus. I love how it isn't greasy in comparison to other lip balms
Love love love! ! Smells amazing! And keeps my lips moisturized for ages! Will definitely buy again once it runs out.
Love how it glides on saau smooth. Smells super yummy and has the cutest packaging.
This lip balm is amazing ! I am currently on Roaccutane and suffer from terribly dry and cracked lips. Paw paw ointment just doesn't seem to do the trick. But since this lip balm arrived, it has been my number one go to. It smells sooo delicious and is so soft and smooth on my lips :)
Simply Essential Brush Collection

I got the FE2. Recommended for blending eye shadow, concealer, and applying highlight. I tried all three. It's super soft but dense enough to get a decent blend in with eye shadow. A little on the big side for my eyes but most brushes kinda are - thanks filipino genes! For concealer it was actually perfect the right size shape and density to buff my cream concealer out. For applying highlight it's a bit smaller than I would typically use - I normally go for a large fan brush but it worked well for under the brow, cupids bow, and chin. All in all you can never have too many eye shadow brushes and I was stoked to have this in my beauty box :)
I got the F5, loving it so far! The brush itself is really pretty, super soft and really dense! I've been using it for liquid foundation and can already tell it's going to be one of my go to's!
I need to know where to buy these from! A New Zealand company that is bringing out awesome brushes - sign me up!!!!! I can't wait to get the whole set. I would probably not have brought one of these if they were on the shelf but now I am obsessed
I received the F4 brush. I have only used it once but I really like it. Its really soft and doesn't have any horrible loose bristles. I do prefer my real technique brushes but will continue to use this one!
I got the f4, I love it! So good for cream blush :)
I got the F6 and as soon as I used this, it replaced my current concealer brush! It leaves a beautiful finish to the concealer. I love the simple design and soft pretty bristles.
I got the FE2? On the far left I think haha. I hate doing eyeshadow because I'm terrible at it but since getting that brush it seems super easy haha. They nice and soft and easy to work with, would totally buy the rest of the set
I got the F6 it's super soft. It didn't shed when i washed it. It blended out my concealer nicely. I'm really happy with it! does anyone know where we can buy these brushes? I haven't seen them anywhere yet.
I got the FE2 which is a brush I have been meaning to get so that worked perfect :). Use it for blending eyeshadow and am very happy with it. Beautiful brushes and very professional looking. Will definitely keep an eye out for this brand and was super stoked when I saw it in the box!
I got the F5 brush i don't usually use brushes because they make me look dry and patchy but i quite like this one nice and soft and spreads product evenly
I got the angled flat kabuki and i used it to blend my foundation out and it worked so well and is suuuuper soft
I got the F5. First I played with it heaps to see if any of the bristles would fall out - NOPE! None at all came out! Big tick! Love how soft and thick it is. I used it to blend my contour - but found it kinda just smudged it around. So the next day I used it to apply my foundation and it was great! I was sceptical at first, thinking I'd lose a lot of foundation within the bristles, but it seemed to just sit on the ends and go straight into your skin. Will def buy more.
Check out part 2 and part 3 to see what else was in the boxes! :D
