Feel Unique Box Feb 2012 & Brief Review *UPDATED*

Hello my lovlies! Look what arrived yesterday! 
( Don't worry I photoshopped my address out ;) ) 

I was so excited to open this! I've been waiting since January because I had a bit of trouble with the website and then my order went in too late! So I've had to wait until now but it has been worth it!
I also actually had the will power of not to open it like savage as soon as it arrived and waited until I could take pictures and stuff first (like I have done with lots of things and have then not been able to do such photo friendly blogpost when it came to it!) So proud of myself! 

This is it from the outside, you can see the little tab on the right hand side that makes it a little draw.
Totally love this as it makes  it so great for storage! 

I was tempted to type this all out but it just basically explains that this box is based around Valentines Day and helping you look / feel luxurious with the samples.

It has the shredded black paper inside, which no doubt I'll be able to reuse!

Here are the products: 

No.1)  Decleor Phytopeel Face Peel Cream
"This soft cream formula gently exfoliates & smoothes, whilst elimination impurities. A Perfect at-home peel that adds a healthy glow to lack-lustre skin. Use once or twice a week on face & neck, gently massaging in upward circular motions & allow to dry, Remove excess with a cotton pad."
I squeezed a bit of this product onto my hand and it feels so soft and lovely, the smell reminds me of that balm stuff, Vicks is it? Anyway, can't wait to try it out! 
Sample Size= £7.05 for 15ml.
(£23.40 for 50ml found here)

No.2)  Philip Kingsley Maximizer
"This Vogue Beauty Award Winner adds super volume, body, bounce & shine to hair that's fine & lacking life. It also helps prolong the life of colour treatments. Spray onto your roots for lift or throughout lengths before syling for overall volume & control or gently blow dry for maximum volume."
Really nice sized sample. Tried a bit out today and it works so well! Can see why it won an award!
I have very fine hair and it made my hair look so thick, it's great! 
However, it is a bit pricey for me, but if first impressions are anything to go buy, I would be tempted to buy it.
Sample size= £5.38 for 60ml
(£11.20 for 125ml found here)

Oil rubbed in
No.3) Nuxe Hulle Prodigleuse OR Multi-Usage Dry Oil Golden Shimmer
"A unique super activated formula to nourish, repair & soften face, body & hair in a single gesture. Thanks to its small golden particles, your skin glitters and reveals its beauty whenever you move. Apply on face, body & hair throughout the year, summer and winter alike for glowing radiance."
This has a very luxurious smell, it's hard to explain really, but I don't really know if I like it. My boyfriend liked it however, and when I poured some on my hand to show him the amazing glitter particles, he swiped it off my hand and rubbed it into his hands instead! (Bit worrying perhaps?) I did test a bit on my hands prior to that and I did notice how moisturised my hand felt. Really pleased! Definitely going to use this on my birthday! 
Sample size= £3.80 for 10ml
(£38. for 100ml found here)

No.4) Elemis Lime and Ginger Hand and Body Wash
"This fresh & exotic wash has a beautiful, rejuvenating fragrance with a deep cleansing formula that lathers into a super-rich, delicious formula for all over the body. Leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, soft and nourished. Use in the shower morning & evening or as a hand wash throughout the day."
This is a great sample size at 100ml, plus I really love the smell of this product, can't wait to use it. The idea of it being a body wash but you can also use it as a hand wash is really clever! Although I'd end up washing my hands every five minutes just to smell it!
Sample size = £6.13 for 100ml 
(£18.40 for 300ml found here)

Leighton Denny High Performance Colour in Diamond Diva
"This expert & high performance nail colour is easy to apply, long lasting & chip resistant. The colour won't fade & keeps a high gloss shine day after day. Top tip: For the fastest finish, drip a little 'Miracle Drops' over the polish to speed drying time."
So in love with this colour! I have quite a few silver polishes but nothing quite like this. You can really tell it's high quality when applying as it applies beautifully. This is my first Leighton Denny polish and I can't wait to show it off! 
Sample size= £4.21 for 4.6ml
(£11 for 12ml found here)

Also included was a little freebie of the Jean Paul Gaultier Kokorico perfume. I didn't really like the smell but my mum liked it so I gave it to her (even though its a men's one!)
Sample size= £0.46 for 1ml)
£45.90 for 100ml found here)

Overall price of the samples in the box = £27.03
So can't believe that! At it only being £9.95 that's a real bargain!
All in all, I'm definitely pleased with this box, the samples are all something I'd be more than happy to use and try out, and no doubt enjoy! So so happy! :D

Hope you enjoyed this post, I will most definitely keep my subscription with them, can't wait for the next box!
Until next time xoxo

*UPDATED* I got an email yesterday saying that this will be the last box, but they have something else coming up. Pretty disappointed because I was definitely going to carry on with my subscription as I loved this box so much! :( Such a shame really, however I will be looking forward to whatever they have lined up. Looks like I'm going to have to get a subscription for another box for now! RIP Feel Unique Box! 


  1. Ohh I am so bad I know I should wait until mine arrives but I always want to know what I am going to get! This box seems ok I wasnt too impressed with the Jan one but am glad I didnt unsubscribe.

    I have started my own blog today! If you would go have a look i would love it :)although there are only two posts so far!

    Hugs and best wishes

  2. This is my first beauty box ever so I have nothing to compare it to, but I seriously love everything in this box, (except the perfume) and I don't think there will be anything that will go to waste. I hope you'll feel the same when you receive yours.

    I shall follow your blog! Don't worry about the posts, it may take a while to get into it properly, I know it did for me!

    Thanks so much for the comment, xoxo

  3. this seems to be one of the vest beauty boxes around wish they would deliver to ireland :(

  4. That's a shame :( Perhaps you could ask them on their facebook page if they're planning to be international?


  5. Fab post! Still waiting on mines being delivered :(

    Just started my own blog


  6. Thank you! It's worth the wait! :)

  7. A few months ago Birchbox sent out the Multi-Use Dry Oil Gold Shimmer in some of their boxes, and I really wanted it, but wasn't lucky enough to get it :(

    1. Oh, that's a shame :( It's a rather good product, I used it for my 18th birthday party I was glowing! xo.
