Beauteco Box Review

Beauteco is a new beauty box with a twist, instead of it being a box full of surprises like other monthly boxes you choose from a menu of three different boxes.  The main products seem to be the same in the three boxes with slight variations on the other items.

I signed up in July for this box, the box costs £10 plus P&P.
Beauteco doesn't come in it's own box or bag like other beauty boxes but makes use of the packaging which I think is a good idea as I was building up a large stash of empty boxes (the house fire did take care of this problem though!).
As you can see the box was packed full!

Unfortunately I had a bit of a problem with my box (hence the late post) I chose the box that contained a full size Art Deco liner but I was sent a product from one of the other box choices - a full size Art Deco clear lash and brow gel.

I ordered the box on a Tuesday, got a dispatch notice on the Wednesday and then an email on the Thursday saying that the liner was out of stock so as they thought I wouldn't want to wait they sent me out the box with the replacement product and as an apology they added the two sample sachets and the sample of the moa balm.

I replied saying I would have been happy to wait until they had a restock, which was only the following week and that I would have preferred to have been asked before they posted out the box.  They replied that they would send me out a liner the following week once they came back into stock, but it's a month later and I am still waiting....

I feel that if the selling point is that you choose and pay for the box that you want from the three options then this is what you should receive, or they should state that they have sold out/there is a wait for the option you have picked.

Anyway, on to the contents!

It contains 4 full size and 1 sample size (ignoring the moa and sachets)

Neal and Wolfe Evelate Full Size 200ml, retails for £11.95 on their website
Neal and Wolfe Harmony Full Size 200ml, retails for £12.95 on their website
Art Deco Clear Lash and Brow Gel Full Size 10ml, retails for £9.75 here
Art Deco Shadow Base Full Size 5ml, retails for £8.00 here
Pukka Radiance Serum Sample Size 10ml, 50ml retails for £32.00 here making the sample worth £6.40.

The whole box is worth a whopping £49.05!

I am looking forward to trying everything in the box, even the lash and brow gel ;)

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm Review

The Thermal Cleansing Balm was the first product released by Omorovicza back in 2006 when they opened their flagship spa in Budapest.

They incorporate unique natural resources into their products, including black organic Moor mud (this gives the balm it's unusual colour) which is harvested from Europe's largest thermal lake, just outside Budapest.
As you can see the balm is black but it actually applies clear!

The glass jar gives the product a luxurious feel, a little of the balm goes a long way so even though this is a luxury sample size jar it lasted me for about two weeks. 
The balm is so gentle that it can be used by all skin types.  

It removes make-up easily, including eye makeup.  It doesn't sting at all when used over the eye area and every last bit of mascara was removed.

My skin feels absolutely gorgeous after using this balm, it is left soft and glowing.  I can't get enough of it!

Now it is not cheap, it is priced at £46.00 per 50ml on their website but this sized jar would last for ages.  They also offer free shipping and samples when you purchase it from theur website.

I will definitely be repurchasing this product! 

If you want to try this product you can buy a 5ml sample for £5.00 from Latest in Beauty.
