- Nuxe - Huile Prodigieuse
Part of the March Deauty Box, this rich body oil can be used on body, face and hair. It consists out of 8  essential oils and makes your skin as soft as silk. You can also use it as bath oil.
I started using it after my body butter ran out and was amazed by the scent of the oil. It's just heavenly. It's not too greasy and leaves your skin wonderfully hydrated and indeed very soft. I love using it. The only downside is the clumsy way of applying it. A spray or something would have been useful.

- L'Oréal Professionel - Mythic Oil
This lush shampoo containing argan oil is quite amazing. Just a pity it's a L'Oréal product. My hair feels lush, fresh, silky, shiny,...and for quite a long time. It actually looks like it's been washed at a salon. It was part of the February Deauty Box.

- N°7 mascara Lash Adapt
This is a no frills sort of mascara. You can build it up, it has a great jet black colour and basically does what it says. Not a real Wow-factor but basically a good decent mascara.

- Jason - Brightening Apricot Scrubble
A rather grainy scrub for everyday use with walnuts and apricots. It smells lovely and leaves your face very soft. In fact, after only one use I noticed that my skin looked more radiant in the morning! It's quite grainy so don't rub too hard on your face.

Animal testing info:
