I have never been a beauty subscription box person, I’ve not been interested in subscribing to either affiliate boxes or boxes like BellaBox, however, I signed up to Marie Claire “The Parcel” in Summer when I saw their great offering for only $25 a quarter. I prefer the idea of a quarterly box, as I feel like you generally get better products, and it’s also not so draining on the bank account!
First up, in this box you get:
- John Freida Anti-Frizz Primer Leave In Treatment
Full size at 100ml valued at RRP: $16.95
- Nivea Sensitive Micellar Water
Full size at 200ml valued at RRP: $9.99
- Garnier Miracle Wake Up Cream (Day Cream)
Full size at 50ml valued at RRP: $19.99
- Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm in Sweet Violet (not pictured)
Full size at 4.3g valued at $12.99
- MOR Rosa Noir Hand and Body Milk
Deluxe sample at 50ml = $3.49 (regular bottle is 500ml at $34.99)
- Ritual Cosmetics Fortune Oil
Deluxe sample at 20ml = $1.73 (regular bottle is 200ml at $17.34)
- Klorane Shampoo with Quinine and B Vitamins
Deluxe sample at 25ml = $1.37 (regular bottle is 200ml at $10.95)
- Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
Deluxe sample at 17ml = $1.06 (regular tube is 160g at $9.99)
- The Body Shop Drops of Youth Concentrate Serum
Deluxe sample at 7ml = $11.66 (regular bottle is 30ml at $49.99)
- Garnier Miracle Skin BB Cream
Sachet sample 2ml = 60c (regular bottle is 50ml at $16.99)
Total value: $79.87
Overall, well over the $25 investment the box costs, however much less than the Summer box which was valued at over $140, and the Autumn box which was $123+. Not really any exciting products in this one for me, except for the Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm and the MOR hand cream. I will definitely use all of/try out all the products, but I agree with some of the reviews that have said there weren’t that many makeup products this season which is disappointing.
I rate this box higher than the Autumn box but lower than the Summer box. Can’t wait to get stuck into the products. I still think it’s the best subscription box on the market in Australia, where we are unable to gain access to many boxes.
You can sign up to buy this season’s plus future boxes here.
