It only feels like a few months ago when Chic Treat Club launched, I can’t believe it’s actually a year ago! It has been a great year for them and with the 12 boxes that were released, there was just one that didn’t float my boat. Not bad going at all!
This month’s box had a little bit of everything in it (no makeup sadly) but as always some great brands.
Nimue Moisturiser Lite
I have been using the Nimue Exfoliating Enzyme which I received last year with PowderPocket and I love it so I had high hopes for this moisturiser. I used it just this morning and I have to say I wasn’t overly impressed. My skin didn’t feel really moisturised at all, and I actually had to put my usual moisturiser over it. Nevertheless, this may suit others but it’s just not for me. This 15ml tube is worth €17.00 with a full-size retailing at a spendy €56.75. Available at dolledup,ie
No More Dramas – Self Tan Corrector and Remover
This is such a handy product to have! I do use tan quite regularly, and there is nothing worse than seeing a overly tanned hand or wrist! Whilst there are other products out there that will remove the tan by exfoliating, this actually counteracts the DHA (the active tanning ingredient) so you are left with perfectly clean skin. I can see this being useful in Summer especially around my ankles which I always seem mess up! It smells a little strange though so I will see how that fares out! This full size tub retails at €12.95 and available at nomoredramas.ie.
Kiss Flirty Featherlight Lashes
I’ll admit, I sighed when I seen these. We received Kiss lashes a few months ago which I still have in the bottom of my drawer. Although these ones I will definetly give a try! They are made from Remy human hair, with a tapered tip which make them look very natural. These retail at €8.99 from pharmacies nationwide.
Thalgo Firming Gel Mask
This is a brand that I only tried previously through Chic Treat and I really like it! This month there was a mix of either the Gel Mask which I received, or a Smoothing Care Cream. I love face masks so I am delighted with this and this tube will last a while as I will only be using once or twice a week. I can’t find a price for this but judging by similar products by the brand, I would presume around €35.00 making the 30ml sample around €18- €20.00.
CND Kanga Board
You can never have too many of these things! I actually needed to get a proper one, as the cheaper ones I have been using are terrible. Straight into the handbag this goes! Full-size €2.50.
This month’s box comes to approx €59.50 worth of product – great value for the €16.95 subscription I pay. I am disappointed that the Nimue moisturiser just wasn’t rich enough for my skin, as this was a stand out product within the box.
What did you think of this month’s Chic Treat Box? How did you find the moisturiser? I’d love to know!
Thanks for reading, much love,
