The pencil itself is pigmented, it doesn't drag along the skin in an unpleasant way and it smudges quite easily. To me this feels ever so slightly waxy, but I'm not a huge expert on pencil liners, and it smells quite like crayons. Overall this isn't a product for me, but everyone is different - you may adore this product! The full size pencil retails at £9.50.
The second product that I picked out is the Murad Skin Perfecting Primer and it's promises of a dewy finish are pretty exciting to me because I'm sure everyone knows how much I love the Satin Primer from Illamasqua. This Murad primer is oil free and promises to ignite a radiant glow powered by light-enhancing minerals. This is a product I'm super excited to try out, my only reservation is that it seems to be slightly tinted but I'm hoping that it won't give too much colour to the skin because I am quite pale. The full size 30ml bottle retails for a fairly pricey, £29.
Clarins has always been a brand I've been drawn towards, their products get excellent reviews all the time so I'm not sure why I've never tried anything from the brand before. The Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream promises to infuse the skin with firming benefits that are immediate and long lasting and I'm really excited to try this out. In my opinion it's never too early to start looking into product that promise to firm!
The Clarins Extra-Firming Night Cream contains an intensive night time skin renewal complex and again, I'm looking forward to giving this a whirl. The only reservations I have with these are that they are for all skin types, so I'm unsure if these will be moisturising enough for my dry skin. Like I mentioned before, I've never really delved into Clarins as a brand so I'm not entirely sure what to expect. A full size 50ml jar of the Day Cream is £46.50 and a full size 50ml jar of the Night Cream is £48. Not cheap, but if they do the job then I'd say it's well worth the investment!
Finally, I've saved my favourite product for last and that is the FAB Gentle Body Wash. This is the only product I've really tried out so far and on first impressions I think this is a wonderful product. It's creamy in texture and doesn't have much of a scent to it making it perfect for sensitive skin. My skin feels especially soft after using this and also very moisturised. I have already been perusing the rest of the range on the Boots website and I feel some purchases are going to be made very soon. This is a brand that appeals to me because they don't include harsh chemicals or known irritants in their products and I'm definitely intrigued by the Anti-Redness Serum and the Facial Radiance Pads! The full size 226g or 8oz Body Wash retails for £10.
Overall, I'm pretty impressed and think there are some really lovely products in this months box. Admittedly I would have liked this Valentine's box to have had a pretty pink lipstick, blush or even nail polish in it because I know those are the kinds of colours I'll be opting for this Valentine's Day and that would have got more love from me than the Eyeko eyeliner!
