The LAST EVER Feel Unique Beauty box :(

As you may or may not know, the reason why this post is labelled the LAST EVER Feel unique box, is because yesterday, they announced they were stopping their beauty boxes. BOOOHOOO!! I will post the email they sent their customers at the end of this post. I was real shocked and sad when I found out because, although last months box wasn't great, overall I'm in love with FU boxes. And THIS one is nooo exception. What a box to sign off with!

Firstly, a product which I was gutted I didn't receive when alot of others did with GlossyBox...Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (40ml)! I absolutely cannot wait to use this one. It's had rave reviews, and been named as a must have item for Chezza Cole. Well, if it's good enough for her, I guess it'll do for us then? HELL YEAH it will!! Can you tell I'm a bit excited??
This cult treatment will improve or maintain the quality and behaviour of your hair. Great for over-processed, dry and damaged hair (that's me!), the more frequent use of this intensive treatment formula, will give more restorative results. This item is to be used before shampooing, and left on for 10-20 mins.

Next is the Nuxe oil (10ml), which I have received in another beauty box before. Not that I'm complaining as I've used it a couple of times and really liked it. Besides, an oil in the winter is a must, as everything from skin to hair seems to dry up! I'll be using this on my body and hair to get it looking alive again! 
They say: A unique super activated formula to nourish, repair and soften face, body and hair in a single gesture. Mix a drop with your foundation and it will glide on smoothly on your skin for instant dewy radiance or pour a small amount in the palm of your hand and gently ruffle your hair for a natural sheen. Thumbs up!!

Thirdly is the Leighton Denny Nail polish (4.6ml) in Diamond Ivory. Now, I've received a Leighton Denny polish before and got on very well with it. With it's gorgeous intense colour, and the polish gliding on smoothly...I fell in loveee. So I was well chuffed when I received this in a natural shade so I can wear it at work.
They say: This expert and high performance nail colour is easy to apply, long lasting and chip resistant. The colour won't fade and keeps a high gloss shine day after day. 

Now a product which I'm sure alot of you will be excited for... Elemis Lime and Ginger hand and body wash!! I was well chuffed when I discovered an Elemis item laying in my box. I love Elemis products, and it's a brand I was yet to see pop up in a beauty box. It has a gorgeous exotic scent, and at 100ml, is a very decent size. Yet another thumbs up from me!
They say: This fresh and exotic wash has a beautiful, rejuvenating fragrance with a deep cleansing formula that lathers into a super rich, delicious formula for all over the body. Leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, soft and nourished. Use in the shower morning and evening or as a hand wash throughout the day.

Next, yet ANOTHER product I have fallen in loveee with. The Decleor Phytopeel Natural Exfoliating Cream (15ml). I tried a tiny bit of this on my hand, and the area where I used this is so much softer and smoother, so looks like it's going to work wonders on my face.
They say: The soft cream formula gently exfoliates and smoothes, whilst eliminating impurities. A perfect at-home peel that adds a healthy glow to lack-lustre skin. Use once or twice a week on face and neck, gently massaging in upward circular motions and allow to dry. Remove excess with cotton pad.

We got a little extra item this month,  the Jean Paul Gaultier Kokorico EDT. It's a small 1ml bottle, but with the pump spray, it's ideal for popping in your hand bag.
Get 10% off all brands featured in your beauty box.

So an absolutly brilliant last box from Feel Unique. I will definately will miss them!  R.I.P FEEL UNIQUE BEAUTY BOXES.
