This is the second box of The Parcel by Marie Claire. It is the Summer Edit, and it is jam packed full of goodies! I was very impressed with how quickly AusPost and The Parcel have sent out this box. It was dispatched yesterday and delivered today. Amazing (never thought I'd use this word when describing AusPost's service)! Upon first glance, I was also extremely impressed with what was included in this season's box.
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo (44ml; RRP: $15.99 for 250ml), Conditioner (44ml; RRP: $15.99 for 250ml), Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray (29ml; RRP: $16.99 for 118ml)
"Party season calls for beautiful bouncy hair, so get set for your next big night out with this volumising range. Wash with the shampoo and conditioner, then mist the spray to your roots. Then comb through before blow-drying for va-va-voom volume with a naturally soft feel."
I have tried a few John Frieda hair products. My favourite has got to be their foam hair dye. However for some strange reason I don't normally purchase John Frieda products. As such, I'm happy to receive them in my beauty boxes. I would definitely use both shampoo and conditioner. Not sure about the blow-out spray, as I try not to blow dry my hair especially after I've bleached it to death.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye - 5ml (RRP: $95 for 15ml)
"Zone in on fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skin tone around the eyes with this powerful gel serum. Suitable for all skin types, Australia's number one eye treatment works to visibly repair, hydrate, brighten and protect this delicate area - and all while you rest."
I have tried the Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II for the face, and I quite liked it. I did a repurchase, but have not used it in a while. I'm hoping I'd hate this eye serum, and it is super expensive (like the one for the face).
Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat (13.5ml - full size; RRP: $17.95) & Peach Daiquiri Nail Lacquer (13.5ml - full size; RRP: $16.95)
"From pretty pinks to classic red, you will have received one of Essie's top-selling nail polishes. Apply two coats of the feminine shade and then finish with a slick of top coat (available in All In One, No Chips Ahead or Good To Go) for a high shine, longer lasting mani."
It's no secret that I have a rather unhealthy obsession with nail lacquers. Essie is one of my favourite nail polish brands, and I welcome these two polishes into my nail polish collection with open arms.
