As well as receiving my PowderPocket Box last week, I also got my limited edition Chic Treat Club ‘Yummy Mummy’ Box…….just in time for Mothers Day don’t ya know 😉 Yes it was a present from the kids which I of course picked out myself haha! It was very hard not to open it when it arrived on a dreary Monday morning so I had a wee little peak at the magazine (twitter made me look!!!) so I was even more excited when I seen what I’d be opening on Sunday!
Here is the goodies I got!
CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat
CND Vinylux Weekly Polish in #158 Wildfire
Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream
Dermaglow Skin Health Drink
Physicians Formula Happy Boost Blush
Lily O’Briens Chocolates
25% Discount Vocuher for ElaineCurtis.ie
I am absolutely thrilled with this box! I think any woman, ‘Mummy’ or not would be delighted to get this.
CND recently launched their Vinylux System Polish Basically the new technology makes it very hard-wearing with no need for a base coat and it doesn’t stain your nails either! The top coat gets stronger with exposure to natural light. Looking foward to giving these a good try and see do they really wear well for a week.
Here’s a quick swatch of the polish, I love the colour. I think it may be the PERFECT red!
I don’t like my feet but I still look after them and moisturise them so I’m glad to introduce this Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream to my routine which smells like coconuts obviously, lovely and fresh!
Physicians Formula is a make up brand already popular in the US and made especially for sensitive skins but is launching here in June so I love that I’m getting to try this before it hits our shores. The packaging of this is not only very pretty but clever too. There is a compartment underneath which has a mirror and a bush. I’m delighted this little gem was included in the box
So, onto the Dermaglow skin health drink. This contains collagen…although something usually we think to apply topically to our bodies, drinking this will apparently maintain and stimulate collagen production from the inside out?! As well as collagen there is hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, B, D, E and altogether the drink claims to reduce tiredness and fatigue, regulate hormones, support strong hair, nails & bones. As interesting as this sounds I just don’t know and I’ve yet to taste it….I’m kind of afraid lol? You are meant to take it for 4 weeks once a day, at €3.99 a bottle I suppose it’s cheaper than botox? It would be interesting to try the full course, and with all the vitamins I suppose it can only do good.
I’ve been browsing the Elaine Curtis site to see what to buy with my 25% discount. I’d lvoe to visit the store as the clothes she has in are beautiful and from some amazing Irish designers, unfortunately it’s in Carlow so I wont be there anytime soon. But I’ll still enjoy some online shopping 😉
Last but definitely not least were the Lily O’Briens Crispy Hearts (7 honeycomb chocolate hearts to be exact) which were of course devoured Mothers Day evening with a glass or three of wine 😉 Bliss! They were divine!
Yes, I’m very very happy with this limited edition box which is still available here for €24.99 including delivery from Irish business ChicTreat Club. Give them a follow/like on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to see more of their usual monthly and special edition boxes!
