Dollibox - May's Edition - Lots of new brand discoveries!

May 24, 2017

If you read my last Dollibox post, you'll know that back in Feb I won a 3 month subscription and I was blown away by the contents I received in those 3 boxes. I've now signed up for a 6 month subscription so you'll be seeing a Dollibox review each month on here. I received May's box earlier on in the month and have now sampled every item. Opening this box was so exciting as it was a different box packaging than the last few months, with a pink branded box and pink tissue paper shredding a inside protecting the items. I kept finding products within the tissue paper, it was like a lucky dip :)



My favourite item in this months box is the exclusive Deborella Mermaid Necklace - £6.00
This mermaid inspired necklace was made exclusively for Dollibox and is just beautiful! The pink laser cut shell shapes contrast and the slogan 'Mermaid Life' is just perfect. Deborella is a new company crafting laser cut jewellery and stationary, they have an Etsy shop with lots of fabulous goodies available. I think this necklace is great for summer with the Pastel pink colour and mermaid themed items are really hot right now. I'll be wearing this all summer long! 


Focallure Face Blush in shade Coral - full size - $7.99 
First off this is the perfect shade for my pale skin tone so I'm very pleased with this matte blush from Focallure. A new brand to me and I'm super impressed with the quality of the product. Applying with a soft blusher brush left me with a healthy glow on my cheeks, the fact that this is a matte finish blush makes me use less product as I don't need much to gain my desired look. The compact is thin and fits into my smallest handbag easily so it's in my night-out makeup bag now as well daily uses. 


Leopard Cat Eyebrow Palette - full size - £5.26 
Again this is a new brand to me and has some pretty creative packaging with the Leopard Cat printed on top of the palette and the box. Inside the palette is two eye brow powders, a mirror and a small brush; great for travelling with as you have everything you need. The shades I've received are quite dark and now I have blonde hair they are a little too dark for me but when I apply them sparingly I can achieve a decent brow look. The powders are smooth, buildable and long lasting. I'd like to try some other shades from Leopard Cat. 


Seacret Makeup Removing Wipes - full size - £19.95
A third new brand in this months box and the most expensive product featured at £19.95! The value is amazing since the box price is £10.00 but would I pay £20 for face wipes in the future... nope! It was a nice treat to try these wipes and a change for my skin since I haven't used face wipes for some time. I do use them occasionally on weekends away or days out etc so these have come in handy over the past couple of weeks. The wipes remove all my makeup with just one wipe so I'll get 25 uses out of this packet. The wipes also help hydrate my skin too so that's an added extra! 


Cougar Rich Honey Moisturiser- full size -$17.90 
I first discovered Cougar Cosmetics though another subscription box so I knew about the brand. This Moisturiser is rich in minerals, vitamins and honey which is a natural antiseptic so it can heal minor skin irritations. Honey for me is great for dry skin and really nourishes my problem areas. The consistency of the product is quite thin so it goes a long way when I apply it which makes the product more value for money. The only let down I have with this product is the packaging is pretty basic, it's a bottle with a printed sticker on it. It would be nice to have a little more to look at but this of course doesn't affect the product working and having great qualities. 


The only travel sized product in the box and the 6th item, Dollibox has really put together an amazing box this month! Palmers is known for nourishing beauty products, I've previously used their body lotion (also featured in a previous Dollibox) and there lip balm is a true favourite of mine; I've also had their foot moisturising stick which worked wonders on my dry feet last year. This protein pack is for your hair and I will definitely be picking more of these up. My hair feels amazing after just one use, the treatment can be left on overnight or applied after shampooing and left on for 10-20 minutes. I went for this option as I never have time to wash my hair in the mornings. After my hair was dry it felt so smooth and looked healthy, I was amazed at the results; the coconut scent was really refreshing too. 


As you can see May's Dollibox was filled to the brim with goodies and I've been able to use each product. I loved that a jewellery item was featured this month and I've discovered 4 new brands to check out!

  1. Dollibox looks utterly divine and I'm so happy you won the comp back in Feb beaut babe as this box is so mermazingly YOU! The pink design is utterly gorge and you can't beat the feeling of an old school lucky dip hehe. I'm crushing so hard on the pretty mermaid necklace, what a transfixing treasure. So in love! As we both know mermaid life is the best life and what a perfect trinket to sum up our inner seaside vibes <3

    The Cougar Rich Honey moisturiser sounds so soothing, I agree it's a shame the design isn't a little dreamer. The Coconut Oil Deep Conditioning Protein Pack sounds like such a life saver, so nourishing and perfect. Their lip balm and body lotion products sound so tropical and blissful for these hotter months coming. Yet another fabulous review from you sugar 😍
