The Parcel by Marie Claire Summer 2015 Edit Box Reveal & Review

The Parcel by Marie Claire | Summer 2015 Edit
I have nothing but high praise for 'The Parcel' beauty box. Last season's premiere (click here to read my review) was impressive and the Summer 2015 edit is by far THE BEST beauty box I have ever received. This season's beauty box contains 11 goodies 5 of which are full sized products. So, without further ado here is what was included and what I thought about the products.

The Parcel by Marie Claire | Summer 2015 Edit

  1. Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara. RRP $23.95, 12ml. Received Full Size Product

    This was a bonus for signing up to the Summer 2015 edit. If you follow me on instagram you'd know that I have a drawer full of mascaras yet to try. I'm fond of Max Factor. Having been the first makeup brand for films, I trust that their products will deliver what they promise. It's just a shame though that their marketing isn't as good...or maybe I should be happy cos it just means that their prices will be kept reasonable and I can continue buying my old time faves haha!...But really more people should try their range.

  2. Jergens Ultra Healing Body Moisturiser. RRP $5.99, 100ml. Received Full Size Product

    I llooovvee Jergens! I was over the moon when I found out that it was going to be available in Priceline stores because I only got Jergens when my Godmother would come over from the US. Jergens is one of the top selling body lotions in America. It's super affordable and best of all it works wonders! I have sensitive skin but I never had a reaction from using the original formula however I think they also have a range for sensitive skin. If you haven't already tried Jergens I highly recommend you do and at under $6 you really can't go wrong.

  3. Revlon Age Defying CC Cream. RRP $26.95, 30ml. Received Full Size Product
    Aimed to address hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, dehydration and uneven skin tone. This all-round face base also offers SPF 30 protection. I'm about 2 shades darker on my face at the moment so the shade I received "medium" would have been perfect but I'm going to have to wait until my "tan" disappears.

  4. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. RRP $25, 50ml. Received 15g deluxe sample

    I got sunburnt from my recent camp get away so this product is heavenly for my peeling and sun damaged skin. It's a beauty all rounder that you can use on your face (including lips) as well as your body. It's fragrance free but I can smell a hint of menthol, nothing drastic but I'm not a fan of the scent so it's a good thing that this product hydrates quickly and soothes the skin.

  5. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye. RRP $95. Received 5ml deluxe sample

    This product is Australia's number eye treatment. I have heard nothing but good things about this product. I've only ever used samples of it because I still have a lot of eye creams to use up. I started using eye creams about 5 years ago and I can't get enough of them. I'm prone to dryness around my eyes so having an extra moisturizing eye cream really helps when I apply foundation. I love the hydration that this gives but I still can't justify the $95 price tag.

  6. Essie 'Good To Go' Top Coat. RRP $17.95, 15ml. Received Full Size Product

    I love Essie nail polishes so when I saw that there was two of them in this months box I literally squealed with excitement. I received the 'Good To Go' Top Coat which is a rapid dry + shine product. I haven't used it yet because I'm finishing up my Seche Vite top coat but I'm sure that this will dry nails faster and leave a shiny top coat as promised.

  7. Essie Nail Lacquer in Sand Tropez. RRP $16.95, 15ml. Received Full Size Product

    This gorgeous nude/beige shade is perfect for all seasons in my opinion. As with all polishes, 2-3 light coats of the product is recommended for the perfect finish.

  8. Philosophy Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser. RRP $15,90ml. Received 30ml deluxe sample

    I haven't tried this cleanser yet. I can smell a herbal scent from it. I'll most likely be reserving this for when I travel next or go camping again.

  9. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Conditioner. RRP $15.99. Received 44ml deluxe sample

    Designed to give fine hair volume. I'm fortunate to have been blessed with thick
    (albeit difficult to manage at times) hair so this product didn't excite me as much as an anti-frizz serum would, but nonetheless I love John Frieda and the handy purse size will come handy when I travel.

  10. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo. RRP $15.99. Received 44ml deluxe sample

    Pretty much all of the above but I'll add that the scent of both products is just divine. It's floral, fruity and fresh! I love using gorgeous scented products so this is a major bonus for me.

  11. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Blow Out Spray. RRP $16.99. Received 29ml deluxe sample

    Again, I don't have much use for a volumising spray but it'll come handy when I need to do a doughnut updo and I need an extra lift in my hair.
There you have it, the beautiful contents of the Summer 2015 edit. The full sized products alone cost a total of $91.79. The subscription costs $25 so as you can see the contents more than cover the subscription price. I can't help but gush over how good this box is. I've recommended it to everyone I know. If you're new to beauty boxes, I suggest giving this a go. If you want to find out more click here. This box is going to be a tough act to follow but hopefully it only gets better.
