Matriskin Collagen Serum MP
This product has some pretty amazing effects on the skin. It's a clear serum that helps to plump up and tighten the skin reducing the signs of ageing. It does feel a bit sticky to begin with but as soon as it dries down it makes my skin feel really hydrated. It promises a lifting effect without surgery and my skin felt a lot tighter (in a good way) after using it. My jawline especially saw benefits from using it and my nasiolabial folds completely disappeared. They're probably the most prominent lines on my face so it was really cool to see how this plumped them up. The full size version of this costs around £95 though so I really am making the most of this sample!
Murad Osmolyte Tonic
I really liked this toner. It kinda reminds me of Hydraluron but in a spray formula. It has that same deep hydrating effect and helps to plump up & firm the skin too. It feels incredibly cooling & refreshing upon application. It's also quite soothing on any blemishes or irritation. Sprays are my favourite method of toning but some of them don't seem to do very much. This one definitely does what it says and will be great for Winter time. It is suitable for all skin types but I can see this being a godsend for those with dry or dehydrated skin.
Anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Revitalising Eye Mask
Sometimes I like to get a little old school with my beauty treatments and this hot or cold eye gel mask is about as old school as it gets. You can either pop in the fridge or heat it up by sticking it in a pan of hot water. The strap on this mask is a little tight for my head but even if you just plonk the gel part on top of your eyes it does help to refresh & de-puff tired peepers.
Nip + Fab Stiletto Fix Leg + Foot Balm
I was really excited to try out this cooling leg & foot balm. I walk everywhere so I often end up with tired legs. I've tried similar products in the past that were effective & I've heard so many great things about Nip + Fab. However I can't say I'm a big fan of this. It has the oddest smell (supposedly peppermint), isn't very cooling and it leaves my legs feeling quite sticky. If you want something that will actually help with tired legs I'd recommend The Body Shop's Peppermint range instead.
Essential Care Lemon & Tea Tree Facial Wash
Upon contact with water this pearly white liquid turns into a lovely foamy cleanser that is ideal for oily or combination skin. I love products that feature tea tree oil because it's a natural antiseptic and brilliant for blemishes. This facial wash is 70% organic and free from nasties. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and soft. It helps to balance oil production and gives your skin an almost matte finish. It's not anything special but there's not much wrong with it either. I'm just used to the drastic effects of my Elemis cleanser so nothing can really hold a candle to that at the minute. The best thing about it is how good it smells, lemon & tea tree are two of my very favourite scents. I could sniff that tube all day long!
Overall it was a really nice box with loads of cool skincare products. The Matriskin & Murad products were definitely the star items so it was a good idea to feature them in every version of the box.
