Scentpick – August 2016

Scentpick is a new monthly subscription for perfume. Every month you get to pick a new designer fragrance to wear from a selection of 6 and then Scentpick sends you a 30 day supply for £9.99 (including p&p). Your first order of Scentpick is £4.99 and you get a cute reusable case which you can then use for your future picks. Scentpick send your chosen fragrance on the 22nd of the month so you receive it at the end of each month between the 27th and 29th.

The fragrance comes in a padded envelope which is great as it can just be posted through the letterbox so I don’t have to worry about going to the sorting office. Inside the envelope, the perfume comes packaged in soft pink tissue paper secured with a Scentpick sticker. Alongside the perfume, there is a card which confirms your choice of perfume and provides further information about the notes.

For August, I had the choice of the following perfumes to pick from:

  1. Bamboo by Gucci
  2. Be Delicious by DKNY
  3. Beautiful by Estee Lauder
  4. Bright Crystal by versace
  5. Chloe EDP by Chloe
  6. Classique EDT by Jean Paul Gaultier

None of these fragrances appealed to me, even when I googled them to find reviews. Thankfully Scentpick now allow you to pick perfumes from previous months that you might have missed. Therefore, I chose Jimmy Choo EDP by Jimmy Choo. It was described as “dark, sweet and slightly spicy. A confident balance of smoky patchouli and toffee with a little sweet pear in the background.” As previously mentioned, I love sweet scents and this one seemed mysterious.

Jimmy Choo is quite a “sexy” flirty scent.¬†The scent is alluring. The silage and longevity is perfect. Whilst it is sweet,¬†it isn’t overbearing. In fact I find it to be more sophisticated and smoky, adding just the right amount of sweetness during the dry down. Overall, this scent is a classy attractive scent.

Unfortunately, this month’s scent didn’t have the name of the perfume on the bottle like I have previously seen on others. Hopefully it was an oversight and next month’s scent will be labelled so I don’t get confused!

Feel Unique Pick n Mix Service

I don’t know about you but it is often really annoying for me when I blind buy a product and end up hating it. I get frustrated when I think about what I could have spent my wasted cash on. Thankfully Feel Unique have found a way to alleviate my pain by offering a new service!

The Feel Unique Pick ‘N’ Mix service is a new programme which allows you to pick up to 5 product samples a month for¬†only ¬£3.95 which is simply the postage + packaging.¬†That¬£3.95 is then redeemable against your next order.

This is a great way to sample brands that are exclusive, or ones that you’ve always wanted to try but have been too cautious to make a big purchase. You can only purchase this service once a month, kind of like a subscription box but you get to choose exactly what is in it. There are literally hundreds of samples to choose from, when I chose mine there were 408! These samples range from skincare, hair-care, make-up and perfume products. They are all good sizes, in fact they tell you the size of the sample in advance.

These are the samples I chose:

It can be a bit hard to find the Pick ‘N’ Mix service, ¬†you have to be logged in to your Feel Unique account, go to Samples (found on the top menu) then click Pick ‘N’ Mix. If you do not already have a Feel Unique account, you can use my referral code (here)to get 15% off your first order.

I think this is a fantastic service offered by Feel Unique. I hope other companies decide to follow suit. I have always had trouble buying products I end up hating so this service is perfect for me. Furthermore, if you have sensitive skin it is perfect for finding the products that work for you. It is simply a win win!

Nailbox No More…..

Just before receiving my August Nailbox, I decided to cancel my Nailbox subscription.

I have had my Nailbox subscription for a year now so I feel I have completed a full cycle. I have enjoyed the subscription as it caters to my inner nail polish urges. In fact it has truly helped to reduce my polish spending.

With the popularity of subscription boxes, Nailbox were bound to eventually get some competition! One of their competitors truly stood out for me as I have heard and read nothing but good reviews. So whilst I have cancelled (potentially paused) my Nailbox subscription, I will still be satisfying my nail polish addiction with the help of Meebox.

So be ready for my September Meebox review….the theme is Pumpkin Spice
