Boudoir Prive Beauty Box October Tried and Tested!

So here is October Boudoir Prive Beauty Box, Ive tried and tested all the products and this is what I think.

Item 1 CETUEM Illuminating Mask & Creme de Lite
According to the Boudoir Prive box this has been listed in the top 100 Beauty Brands in Harpers Bazaar.
Two products from the same range, one and wash off mask and the other a morning and night cream.
How to use it: The mask: Apply thin layer and leave on for 10-15minutes. The creme: Apply morning and night, massage well into face and neck.
I liked both these products, the mask left my face feeling soft and fresh and the cream feels like satin on the skin, its almost like it leaves a film over your skin, but not in a bad greasy way.
Although I liked these products I probably wouldn't buy them as they are a bit out of my price range.
Illuminating Mask £25.00 50g (not sure if this is an error but this is what the booklet says)
Creme de Lite £45.00 50ml

Item 2 Korres Quince Body Butter.
I love a good body butter so was chuffed to bits when I found this in the box.
I have received the Quince Body Butter but some of you may received the Citrus Body milk featured in the booklet.
The quince body butter smells lovely, I've had a Quince jelly served with a cheese board once, it was nice but that is my only run in with Quince until now.
It contains a combination of vegetable oils, and absorbs very nicely.
Nice size product, not full size but a good size.
Quince Body Butter £9.50 150ml

Item 3 Leonor Greyl Huile de Palme.
This is a pre shampoo conditioner. This range is used with only natural ingredients.  Its an oil but seems to crystallise and solidify when cold. For best results leave on hair over night. I used it and left it on for approx 4 hours before washing my hair. I know I go on a bit about smells but I think smells are pretty important if your going to use the products. So this smells lovely, it does remind me of something but I cant put my finger on it.
That's no help to anyone, so I would describe it as a musky oily scent if that makes any sense.
My hair was noticeably soft and manageable after using it, I will continue to use this as I do really like it but not sure I would buy it. The sample is 25ml
Price: £25.00 95ml

Item 4  Memo Paris Les Echappees
As you know from my last posts that I'm not a lover of perfume samples in the Beauty Box.
And this is the reason why!! I normally take quite a while choosing a perfume.
This one is horrible!! I think it smells more like a aftershave is very musky and spicy. It has a little story in it which doesn't make sense to me but has something about being Arabic in it, which I can totally understand as it does remind me of my visit to Morocco. The strong scents and spices of the souks.
As much as that is a wonderful experience condensed into a perfumee is just not for me.
£69 for 30ml and £105 for £75.00

Item 5 Rose and Co Rose Petal Salve.
This is a full size product and I love this company. My Mother in Law bought me a set of three mini salves a couple of years ago and they are great you can use them for a lip balm as Vaseline for your eyes, brow bones or mix it with a shimmer powder for a glow. So versatile
Lovely rose smell to this one and feels great as a balm for the Winters months.
Price: £5.00 for 20g

Item 6 Studio Make up Liner Styler Pen Black
This is another full size items, and although make up is very personal its great to receive a classic make up essential. This liner as a great felt tip to it and seems to little little encourgement when applying. It glides on smoothly and evenly, something I've rarely found with a felt tip, as it always needs a good shake or a dab on the mirror before applying. Really like this item and its found its way into my permanent make up bag. YAY
£12.99 for 1.1ml

Also contained in this months box was an Invite from  RMK Skintuner, a new range. The invite is to Selfridges to experience the skin bar and a skin consultation as well as a goody bag. I unfortunately couldn't make the dates but thought that was a nice touch and I look forward to more things like that.


  1. The rose salve looks lovely, so pretty and girly. I'm very tempted to sign up! :)
