Amarya Beauty Box Jan 2012

So it's the first Beauty Box of the year and I have to say I was surprised when I lifted a very small and lightweight box from the hall when I came home from school. This month's products didn't come in the usual Amarya Beauty Box, but instead a regular Amarya delivery box. I wasn't too worried when I found out what was inside.

sorry there's a usb in the corner :/

There were only 3 products in this month's box but never fear, something special is hiding inside that pretty purple bag...

Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream - £23.95 30ml full sized sample.
"With the extract of over 1,075 organic Rose petals in each tube, this rich, beautifully scented and bestselling moisturiser will regenerate the skin, leaving it feeling smooth and calm. A fantastic cream for reducing redness and couperose conditions." As someone who suffers from redness and broken capillaries, I'm highly excited for this cream. I've only been using it for the past two mornings so haven't yet noticed anything drastic so I just have to give it time. It has a similar floral smell to Pai's products which I like but it doesn't linger on the skin. It has been a good moisturiser so far and coming from a person that has to use eczema cream on their face and doesn't actually have eczema that's a big claim to make!

John Masters Organics Jojoba and Ginseng Exfoliating Cleanser - £26.00 full size 118ml, 5ml sample.
"A luxury beauty range that combines high performance products with ethical, yet innovative, ingredients. Treating the skin and the earth with equal respect." This must have been this month's "random" product from a brand. I love John Masters Organics hair products and have been keen to try some of their skin products too. It is described on the site as being, "For all skin types Herbal extracts and plant & essential oils are combined to reoxygenate and nourish the skin as they gently cleanse. Ginseng improves circulation, which can reduce fine lines and make the skin firmer. Jojoba beads gently exfoliate without scratching, stimulating micro-circulation and lymphatic drainage Properties:

  • spherical structure of jojoba beads allows exfoliating without risk of scratching skin

  • stimulates blood circulation

  • restores vibrancy Usage:

  • for all skin types

  • use for gentle exfoliation on face & neck

  • use daily for thicker skin, weekly for more sensitive, thin skin."

  •  Caudalie Vinexpert Radience Day Fluid SPF10 - £38.00 full size 30ml, 3ml sample.
    "Using a patented formula of grape-seed polyphenols from their own home-grown grapes, Caudalie offers a range of high anti-oxidant, anti-aging products." Another "random" product. Personally I won't be using this as I'm just about to hit 18 so I don't think I'll need anti-aging products for another few years but my mummy is keen to try it. "This silky fluid offers exceptional anti-ageing effects. As a firming, anti-wrinkle cream, it also ensures optimal moisturizing and anti-oxidant protection. Its subtle pearly tones give you a radiant complexion throughout the day. Who is it for? For anyone who wants to fight against wrinkles and loss of firmness. Main Ingredients: Patented vine Resveratrol titrated at 500ppm, patented grape-seed polyphenols, Vinolevure®, coppery pearlizers and light reflecting pigments, cassia angustifolia, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, olive squalane, peas, sun filters, mint, mandarin...  Caudalie cosm-ethics:  0% parabens, phenoxyethanol, artificial colorings, mineral oils… No animal testing. Non-comedogenic."
