My Treat 'November Body + Underwear' Box
This November box by My Treat is the largest box I've received from them yet, with a fabulous variety of full-sized products. There are three different boxes you can subscribe to, with this one being the 'Body & Underwear' Box, which is $44.95 NZD per month along with $2.50 shipping. This was however, a replacement box, as the shower gel had leaked throughout the first box. My Treat were helpful when I contacted them and provide excellent customer service, and the replacement box came more securely packaged. In the November box, I received two fun pairs of underwear and five full-sized products.
1. by nature Moisture Replenishing Face Serum
For November, My Treat have again included more 'by nature' products and there's a trio of 'by nature' face goodies in this box! Their collagen enriched face serum contains some gorgeous ingredients such as organic rosehip oil, argan oil, and aloe vera. This face serum is to be used before you put on your face cream and makeup. One of my favourite items in this month's box, this serum feels light and refreshing on my skin, and it smells beautiful. This serum is affordable and I like how My Treat have also included in this box, the day creme and eye creme from this collection. I've been using this daily and it's definitely become a staple part of my beauty regime.
2. Puraz Collagen Capsules
These capsules by NZ brand Puraz, contain 100% natural collagen hydroslate and support your appearance in several ways if you take these on a regular daily basis. There are 60 capsules in a bottle, which I've been taking two of, each day, for the past month. I really like the elegant packaging of this product. Puraz 100% Collagen supports: reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles, improved skin elasticity, strengthened nails and hair, and sleep support. Have I noticed much? I've noticed a couple of things, such as my nails looking and feeling stronger, and I think it's slightly improved my skin elasticity. I can't comment on lines and wrinkles as I'm not quite there yet and the only thing that's going to strengthen my hair is a much needed rescue visit to my hair dresser, but perhaps if you use this for a long time then you will possibly notice all of the benefits. Unfortunately I just can't justify buying this product each month for myself as it is a bit on the pricey side but it's a unique idea that My Treat had, to include this product in their box!
Price: $91.95 per month
3. Black LOVE Bikini :Underwear
My first pair of underwear in the November box is this bikini-style black underwear. This sporty looking pair has 'LOVE'around the waist band and mesh-like panels on the sides. You can never have too many pairs of black underwear and I can't get enough of the variations of colour, style and fabrics of the underwear in each box!
4. by nature Hydrating Day Creme
Like the face serum, the Hydrating Day Creme by 'by nature' is another collagen enriched product that contains rosehip oil and is also infused with Vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and aloe vera. I do prefer the Hydrating Day Creme to the Purifying Day Creme in last month's box as this one has a beautiful scent and it leaves my skin feeling softer. After doing a swatch of both cremes, they both have the same consistency, light, and non-greasy, and both do a great job on your skin. From using these 'by nature' products over the past few weeks, I've noticed quite a change in my skin as it looks and feels softer and smoother which is great because it's made a difference in how my face looks and feels at the end of a long day.
5. by nature Calm & Nourish Body Wash
I was relieved when I saw this bottle of body wash come intact in my replacement box with a secured lid! The packaging with all 'by nature' products is on point and this brown and mint green bottle looks truly pretty on the shelf in my shower. Coconut scented products are one of my faves, and the Calm & Nourish Body Wash makes for a soothing shower with the edition of chamomile essential oil. This is the largest item in the November Box and a little goes a long way with this body wash but I'd recommend using a loofah to get a good lather going. I'm a big fan of shower gels and soaps, and can be a bit critical as my work creates some of the best shower gels, but the Calm & Nourish gets a thumbs up from me, especially as it's so affordable, is paraben and silicone free, and is readily available for purchase at your local Warehouse store.
6. Floral Queentex Underwear
One of the best underwear I've received from My Treat is this floral pair by Queentex. This is the first time I've received this brand of underwear in a box and I love it! Couldn't find much info on the brand but I think they are a German brand. This pair of underwear fits really well and from previous reviews you'll notice that I prefer a more supportive underwear that is fuller around the bum. Made from 92% polyamid and 8% elastane, this underwear is silky soft and your bum is in for a treat.
7. by nature Rejuvenating Eye Creme
My final item in the November Box is a fourth product by NZ brand, 'by nature' and is their Rejuvenating Eye Creme. Again, their key ingredients for this range are collagen, aloe vera, and organic rosehip oil. I haven't used many eye creams and don't tend make it part of my daily skin regime. I have used an eye cream by the brand 'goodness' before, but it wasn't doing for me so I haven't continued using it. But today I will compare the 'by nature' eye creme with the 'goodness' eye cream for this review. I've swatched both and I much prefer the 'by nature' eye creme which I thought I would since I've enjoyed most of their products thus far. The Rejuvenating Eye Creme has the same scent as the serum and daily creme and is again, another light formula that doesn't feel greasy on the skin and absorbs well. This non-comedogenic (means it won't block pores) eye creme, helps improve the appearance of dull skin. I have only used it once so I can't give a final verdict yet, but I will come back and update this post in the future.
Verdict: The November Box by My Treat is one of their strongest boxes yet with the variety and quality of full-sized products that they provide to their subscribers. I can't fault this box as there was not one item that I disliked. For $47.55 per month, I believe you get a lot for your money and I adore filling up my beauty cabinet and underwear drawer with so many beautiful pairs of underwear and new products. It also saves me time as I can't remember the last time I had to go out and buy skin care products. You can get your My Treat box at www.mytreat.co.nz
