I like body mists for summer daytime wear; they are refreshing, and I was surprised by how this one smells on the skin! I had expected to be overpowered by sweetness, but it is mildly fruity on the skin, with a citrine undertone. The expiry date is only in 2015, so I can take my time with this.
I absolutely love receiving nail polish in beauty boxes. I've heard of IBD, a US-made salon-only gel polish specialist, but this is their regular polish. "Molly" is a vibrant purple with blue microshimmer undertones, and the formula is a surprising winner I would rate somewhere around CG (though below my beloved O.P.I.s). I get full opacity in two coats, and here's the surprise - it is an emery board-textured matte finish polish! I've applied topcoat on alternate nails so you can see the difference. I will hop on the Enchantess website and use my discount coupons to pick up more IBDs :)
I would have appreciated the 25ml Nair for travel. But ever since I began IPL hair removal, I've disposed of all the Nair and Veet tubes and sprays I owned, so this will be given away on this blog shortly, to whoever evinces interest. Stay tuned for the announcement!
I'm pleased with the April bag. They've added four items - two full-sizes - without fanfare or previous promises, without any misleading communication, and I like it that they email you each time they ship your bag, with your tracking number. I also like what I received, for £4.70 or Rs 399. I should have liked to see some makeup, such as an eyeshadow or a bronzer, but I'm glad I can use almost everything I got. And, best of all, these are all international brands, most of which I've never tried before. Bring on more polish from other brands, or indies, I say!
