Okay I am afraid I am going to have to do this more or less with no photos this month as I cannot find them on my computer. I took lots of photos and uploaded them but I must have deleted them along with last months photos or they must have been deleted on the day the computer decided to wipe a full story as well.
The first item I received was…
Emite Make Up Lip Brush – L312
I put my hands up I would never have paid the full price of £17 for a lip brush but I love this it is by far my favourite item I received this month. It also was fate as I lost my other lip brush only a few weeks before I could do with a new small blending eyeshadow brush so maybe if I lose that next…
My next product was…
MONU Spa Warming Ginger Massage & Body Oil
This is one of these products that can be used in one of two ways, either as massage oil or you can put it in your bath. I have to be honest I was not keen on it in the bath and although it feels lovely as massage oil I was not overly keen on the ginger smell, will I be paying £25 for a full size 200ml bottle, erm nope.
MeMeMe Cosmetics Beat the Blues – Pearl Pink
I have the same issue with this that I had with the previous MeMeMe product I received a few boxes ago which is that as the product is so runny, literally like water, that for older skin it is just not very complimentary, however, like the previous product my daughter loved it. This is aimed at being a highlighter, for eyes and cheeks and costs £5.50 for 12ml which it goes without saying I will not be buying.
Vichy Liftactiv Advanced Filler
They provided two samples one for the face in general excluding the eyes and the other specifically for the eyes. I have to be honest I like the eye one but the other really did not agree with my skin, I tried it a couple of times to be sure of the cause and effect but I found that each time I did I ended up with spots on my forehead in areas which I am not prone to spots, as soon as I stopped using it they cleared up again. The full size of 30ml costs £31 and I have to say I have tried lots of other products that I much prefer for the price.
TRESemme Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo
I have used various brands of dry shampoo, especially following my surgeries when I was not allowed to bath because of needing to keep the wound dry and I have to say of all those I have used this is the best. Although the smell is not great at least with this one you do not end up looking like someone has tipped talcum powder over your head. It also is great for adding volume to hair if it is a little lank and greasy. I have now managed to lose my list with the price on but it was only a few pounds and I will probably buy another once this is gone just to keep in just incase.
Okay I promise next month I will not lose the photos lol

So basically no to most of it.
Sadly this month yes although the lip stick brush is still worth more than I paid for the whole box so not a total bust 😀
