Boudoir Privé October box

I received my second Boudoir Privé box through the post on Tuesday (by a lovely Sheffield lady postie. Sheffield people are so friendly!) I spoilt it for myself (again!) by reading blog reviews like Lilys, but I was still looking forward to it.

The products in this month's box were: Rose&Co Rose Petal Lipsalve, Studiomakeup eyeliner pen in black, Cetuem Illuminating skin mask and Créme de Lite, Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme pre-shampoo conditioner, Korres Quince body butter and Mémo Paris Les Echappées parfum.

I always enjoy products that I can start using right away, and I was happy to see a liquid eyeliner in the beauty box as I had been meaning to buy one. My liquid eyeliner skills are not great so I'll have a bit of practice before showing you the results of this.

I was happy to receive a lip salve, as my lips do suffer in winter with the dryness of air-con/central heating, however the container of the Rose&Co Rose Petal salve was made of a metal-like material (a bit like vaseline tubs) which I find a turn-off as it can feel greasy to touch and consequently I'm never sure whether the container is clean. I much prefer lip balms to come in tubes.

I really need to start using up my hair treatment samples otherwise I will end up with a backlog from my beauty boxes! In this month's box was a pre-shampoo conditioner for dry and damaged hair from Leonor Greyl. It is to be used before washing your hair as a leave-in treatment from 5 mins to overnight. I think I will give it a try overnight next time my hair is due for a wash. A little looks like it would go a long way with this hair oil.

I really like the packaging for the Quince body butter from Korres, and that really makes a difference to how inclined I feel to use it! (Am quite a visual person). The body butter goes on really smoothly, like a thin cream and sinks into your skin well. The smell is quite mild with a hint of avocado and what seems like rose. It is described by Boudoir Privé as: "An extremely rich and soothing cream for dry and chapped skin. The combination of vegetable oils has excellent compatibility with the skin, allowing for easy absorption. It provides uplifting and long lasting moisture."

The Memo Les Eschappées eau de parfum was my favourite product out of this month's box. I always enjoy different scents and the varying affects they can have on our memory, mood and feelings. This scent is described as "A spicy tuberose underlined by pear." I really liked this perfume as it is so different to my usual scents (citrusy). This perfume is spicy and deep, a little musky, and would be great for winter. It reminds me of drinking mulled wine and eating toffee apples.

What did you think of this months' Boudoir Privé box? Are you subscribed to any other beauty boxes?
