January Amarya Box

Im a bit late with this post - so I'll keep it short.
Ive been meaning to blog about this for a couple of weeks but other things just seem to keep popping up ! Oooops ! Anyway better late than never and I didnt want to miss a month so here is my review of the January Amarya Beauty Box.


One thing I will say was I panicked when I seen the size of the box but when I opened it I just thought WOW ! For £10 and no extra fee for postage I received a full size Dr Haushcka Rose Day Cream which was one of my hero products for 2011 and is retailed at £19.99. I am absolutely in love with this day cream - my skin seems to look brighter and healthier when Im using it and someone even told me my skin was glowing the other day - result!
I also received 5ml of John Masters jojoba and ginseng exfoliating face cleanser - its got a nice refreshing smell and is said to stimulate the circulation and restore vibrancy whilst reoxygenating and nourishing the skin. Its a gentle exfoliator so you dont feel like your scrubbing away the surface of the skin and I managed to squeeze two exfoliating treatments out of the 5ml. The tester wont really tempt me to buy this though as I am hooked on my Elemis Skin Buff.
I also received 3ml of the Caudalie Day Perfecting Fluid - You use this in the morning and it has the added bonus of containing an SPF 15.  The fluid is an oil-free moisturiser which is said to help regenerate the skin and give it a radiant glow. It also helps to smooth out lines, minimise pores and reduce dark spots. This had a lovely fresh smell and I found that it definately gave my skin a little bit of a glow, but I dont know if Id be tempted to buy the full size of this or not as I felt like I just covered up any of the benefits of it when I put my makeup on.
Overall I really liked the January box it was fantastic value for money.
Anyone thinking about subscribing to a beauty box should definately give Amarya a try.

Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes ?
