Feel Unique - February Beauty Box

I’ve not done a post on any beauty boxes for a while, but the February Feel Unique Beauty Box (£9.95) has blown me away so I just had to tell you about it. The theme is “Fall In Love...” and it’s a real head to toe package full of scrummy, high-end brands. 



Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Hand and Body Wash (100ml)


I adore Elemis products, love love love them, yet generally find them too expensive to buy for everyday use. This stuff normally costs £18.40 for 300ml. It’s a gorgeous fresh scent; I expected it to smell quite zingy since its lime and ginger, but it’s much more subtle than that. In a nutshell, it smells like a spa. I can’t wait to use this -  I won’t want to get out of the shower! 


Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (40ml) 


I have tried and loved this product before; it’s a fantastic treatment and makes such a difference to the condition of my hair but at £22.30 for 150ml it’s another one of those products that I can’t really afford on a regular basis. So you can imagine my delight at seeing this in the box! You put it on your hair for 15-20 minutes and then shampoo and condition as normal. Trust me, it’s brilliant.


Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (10ml)



Another product for me to get excited about as I seem to be getting a little bit obsessed with oils recently! I’m thinking about saving this multi-tasking gem to take on holiday with me as it can be used on the face, body and hair, it can also be used on kiddies AND it smells beautiful! It has that holiday smell, the scent of warm sandy skin and evening blossoms. Heaven! At £17.00 for 50ml I can see myself buying a full sized bottle.


Decleor Phytopeel Natural Exfoliating Cream (15ml)


This is a smooth creamy exfoliator rather than the “gritty” kind that I am used to. Thinking about it, I’m not sure if I have ever used any Decleor products before. It smells similar to Elemis skincare – that slightly floral, slightly herbal sort of smell. I’m a bit of a fan of exfoliation so I’m really looking forward to trying this. The usual price is £23.40 for 50ml so it’s another high end product.


Leighton Denny High Performance Nail Colour in Steel Appeal (4.6ml)


This isn’t the sort of colour I would normally go for, but that’s what I love about these beauty boxes, they force you to broaden your horizons. The shade is an shimmering, inky grey-black and applies like a dream. I’ve applied 2 coats in the photo, and whilst I’d need to wear it a few days to be able to form a proper opinion, so far I’m impressed. The price for a 12ml full size bottle is £11.00.


With these beauty boxes you’ll often find a perfume sample, and this month it was Kokorico by Jean-Paul Gaultier. An interesting move by Feel Unique, as I was sure this was a men’s fragrance as I’d read about it on The Chap Blog. Oh well, the boyfriend likes it! 

I think this may just be Feel Unique’s best box yet. There was no hype (that I saw) leading up to this box which made it all the more special when I opened it, I was truly surprised and pleased with what I received this month.

Did you receive this month’s box? What colour nail polish did you get?

    1. I think (though not sure) that people got the same, sometimes just variation in the shades. Shame they stopped it! xx
