The Libbie Club: November 2016 Beauty Box

When I arrived home today to find a large brown package waiting for me on my bed, I couldn't contain my excitement, knowing that my November Libbie Club box had finally arrived!
Wasting no time at all, I hastily tore into the packaging and lifted the lid, to be hit with a deliciously sweet aroma that was festive yet zesty, not to mention a welcome surprise! With this having been my fourth Libbie Club beauty box, I'm used to the undeniably gorgeous selection of products that usually arrive, but the company have truly outdone themselves with this assortment. I'm a bit of a packaging fiend, and the combination of Christmas products and luminous rose gold accents made me internally squeal with delight upon first sight.

Nestled inside the box were four luxurious products that I've had the chance to put through their paces:

- Isla Apothecary Lemongrass & Rosemary Renew Foot Scrub
- The English Soap Company Festive Soy Candle & Soap Duo
- LOLA Makeup Exclusive Libbie Club Satin Eye Shadow

 First up I'll share my thoughts on the Isle Apothecary foot scrub with you all. I actually walk to work every day. Come rain or shine I'll step outside my house and travel for 30 minutes on foot, to and from work. It's become a routine that I actually enjoy now, but it does mean that my poor feet are more active than they've ever been and this product has literally been the treat that I've been needing in my life, and it smells unreal. When I initially opened the tub, I actually stirred the attention of my Mum who'd been deep in cyberspace, scrolling away on her iPad - "That smells good enough to eat, what is it?!" 

The combination of Lemongrass and Rosemary creates a really refreshing and unique aroma that I happen to love. The scrub itself is a really chunky and rugged, and beautifully massages into the skin with the help of the oils, but the grittiness of the salt doesn't disappear too soon meaning that you really get a chance to work at areas that need a bit of TLC. I grabbed a handful of this scrub to work into my feet whilst in the bath, but apparently you can also add a spoonful to a bowl of warm water to create your own mini spa too - an idea I'll definitely be using if the temperature continues to drop!
Next I turned my attention to the LOLA Makeup eye shadow. I received shade 018, which I'd like to describe as a rusty, rose gold with sparkling yellow gold glitter running through it. Perfect for the party season (and feeding my ever-growing rose gold obsession!) the shade is highly pigmented and applies beautifully. It blends out easily, adding depth and mystery to a day time look, or can be built up on the lid for a twist on the iconic, smokey eye. There's nothing bad to say about this little gem, I can definitely see myself using it to some of the Christmas events I've got lined up.

And last, but certainly not least, The English Soap Company's soy candle and soap duo. Before I even go into how amazing these products smell, I just want to clarify how stunning the packaging is for these. The particular 'Winter Village' duo I received had been decorated with a 'Night Before Christmas / Sleighing Santa' design that immediately transported me back to the magic of Christmases as a child. With decadent gold text overlaid, I feel like this company could've just given me the boxes alone and I'd have been overjoyed. Exuding luxury and sophistication, I can already tell this duo would go down a storm as a little Christmas gift for a loved one.

Moving onto the actual products though, my candle is said to be "infused with the scent of cinnamon and mulled wine" - two of my favourite ever Christmas scents, and they definitely work together in harmony. I love the fact that the soy candle is more ecologically friendly and is also said to burn longer, with an approximate burn time of 35 hours. I can't actually bring myself to light this just yet, I'm going to save it for Christmas Eve, but I know it's going to make my house smell like pure heaven. 

The soap bar itself is a particularly substantial size too, with cleverly designed, origami-like packaging. Scented with Shea Butter, the bar is SLS and paraben free, vegan friendly and not tested on animals, which only adds to its appeal in my opinion. Once again I'm saving this for the guest bathroom over the Christmas period so can't give a full review, but as a little gift set you're guaranteed to make someone smile if you treat them to this, this Christmas. 

November's Libbie Club box has certainly been full of gorgeous treats that I want to share with you all, so I'm glad to be able to offer you guys some amazing, exclusive discounts for all of the goodies above - simply pop over to my page here, and treat yo'self!

Thank you as always for reading!

Until next time..
