Beauty Basket Edition 5



Well, I finally received the Edition 5 of Beauty Basket! For those of you who aren't subscribed with Beauty Basket, or haven't heard what's been happening, but they've basically been missing in action for the last month! No phone, no email responses, no updates on their phone or facebook! If you check out their facebook page you'll find so many girls enquiring (more of them complaining) about the service! It was crazy. I was disappointed as I'd heard such great things, but I didn't bother trying to chase them up for a refund until I heard for sure what was happening with the company.
Turns out they are still alive and kicking! Needless to say, this box was actually very much worth the wait!



Firstly they included this gorgeous little gift of Lindt chocolate, which my boyfriend has already eaten most of, darn him! I thought it was really nice of them to include this as an extra. 



Here is the absolutely adorable basket with all my goodies! I love that it is actually a basket, it adds a very nice touch, and a basket is something I'll definitely reuse! 



The pretty booklet they sent with all the information on this month's products.





Avon Arabian Glow Bronzing Pearls
I'm really excited about this! I've been meaning to buy some Avon products recently, so this will be a good chance for me to try one of their products to see how they go. I'm not a big bronzer, but I love using bronzer for contouring, so this will definitely get used. I've never used anything with pearls before either so this will be a new expiry for me! This was a full sized product which retails at $19.99, so definitely good value!



Avon Genics Eye Treatment
Another Avon product, but you don't hear me complaining! This is a great sample size for this product, as the full size product retails at $59.99! This is an eye treatment that Avon boasts is capable of "shaving up to ten years off your look!" I definitely have tired eyes all the time due to my work hours, so I'm really excited to give this one a go!


DB Cosmetics Kohl Eye Pencil with Sharpener
Another full sized products, and I'll never say no to eye liner! It's always handy to have a few spare to throw in your handbag or leave at work. This one also comes with a handy sharpener at the end! This one retails at $6.99, and I already love DB Cosmetics so I know I'll love this too!



Lalisse Moisture Rich Facial Cleanser
I've never heard of this brand before, but I'll definitely give it a go. I love cleansers! This one is a very generous size too, which I'm happy about, and it retails at $11.95. This will be great for travel!



Bonne Belle Moisture Repair SPF 15 Lip Balm
Always happy for lip balms! Another full sized product I'm happy with, and is something I'll definitely use now that the cold has well and truly arrived! It's important to still use sunscreen even in winter, so this will moisturise my horrible dry winter lips, as well as keep them protected! This retails at $3.99.


So overall, even though we've had some problems with Beauty Basket over the last month or so, they certainly did provide an excellent basket this month, and it was well worth the wait! I will use absolutely every item I received, and everything was very well sized, so over all I'm a happy customer!

  3. The Avon blush is amazing, one of my friends has it and she used it on me and it looked great.
    I've been trying to find it but they don't seem to have it in any of the booklets right now.
