The third Marie Claire Ageless Parcel arrived mid-week, but I couldn't collect it from the PO till Saturday. Was it worth waiting a few extra days for? Most definitely! While not quite as exciting as earlier editions, the contents are once again very good quality, and there's no denying it's amazing value - total comes to around $120, and considering I paid $25, that's a pretty awesome deal for items specific to my needs. Four full-sized products, one 15ml sample, and a single eye mask - this last beauty product is the one I'm most eager to try ♥
Tresemmé Fullness Emulsion Spray (125ml, $10.99)
This is described as a thickening spray, "infused with antioxidants and omega3s" - can be sprayed on wet or dry hair, and is designed to give more volume. I would normally avoid such products as my hair is naturally thick and bushy, but since having it straightened, it's all sleek and flat so I can experiment a little with something like this ♥...
Elucent Whitening Hand Cream (50g, $24.99)
This is a beautiful hand cream - I know, I've used it before. While there was definitely a lightening of my age spots, I need a specialised regime to achieve any major fading, but I'm delighted to have this in my stash for when I finish the treatment products I'm currently using. Contains Vitamins C, E & B3 ♥...
Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Sleeping Cream (50ml, $19.99)
Love the name! Haven't tried this before, and I'm champing at the bit to introduce it into my routine - the parcel contents card says this "has the benefits of a mask, but with the feel of a lotion". OK, you got me, I'm in!
This will most definitely be the very first product I try from the box - 100% natural (plant-based) collagen, and it'll help reduce my fine lines, and hopefully give my deeper ones a scare. Dark circles are targeted too - the aim is brighter eyes. Could sure do with a couple of those ♥
My eyes feel cool and soothed just looking at these cute little mandarin-shaped slices. There's no instructions as to how long to leave them on for, so I'll assume it's like their other masks - 20 minutes. Might give these a whirl tonight...
Elizabeth Arden Pro Triple Action Protector (15ml, 50ml is $99)
Well this sounds interesting - DNA Enzyme Complex + Antioxidants. I'm gathering it's a tinted sunscreen with major benefits! For face, neck and decolletage, this is supposed to moisturise, boost the natural repair system, and protect. It's fragrance free (which is a bit of a bore), but it's also paraben free and non-comedogenic. It's expensive, so it's a SURE BET I'll fall in love with it ha ha ♥...
essano Rosehip Collagen Repair Serum (30ml, $29.99)
I really like essano skincare, especially the fact that I can buy it at the supermarket - I have their Rosehip Oil which is excellent quality for a great price, so I'm very much looking forward to trying this serum. At this stage in my life, I'm in dire need of collagen so this baby is very welcome thank you! Had a quick sniff and it smells like Mother Nature whipped it up in her kitchen - yum ♥
All up another terrific selection - there's nothing here that I'm not going to use stat. Of course I'll report back once I've tried them all - still haven't cracked open a couple of the products from the other two collections, so it may be a while, but I'll get there ♥...
