March Rubybox

I haven't done a Makeup Monday post in forever and I am almost sure my May Rubybox will be dispatched this week and I haven't blogged about the March Rubybox yet. Well I am finally getting to it and this is also a scheduled post so I am guessing that being trapped in bathroom renovations may just as well be a good thing.

I would be lying if I said I loved the March Rubybox, because I really didn't, but the good thing about life is that we are all individuals with different likes and tastes and what I don't like someone else may and will love. The product that I did love was the sample of  Marc Anthony Morocco Argan Oil Treatment - I can never get enough of that stuff. I am also not lying when I say that a 50ml bottle lasts me 3 months and I use it almost everyday. This little bottle lasted just under a month, so although R149.95 for 50mls seems expensive, it isn't.

Then there was the Mascara and initially I was happy to see that there was Mascara in the box, because I needed new Mascara, but although this Mascara is called Va Va Volume, it doesn't live up to it's name. I have short barely there eyelashes and it doesn't work for me. I use Maybelline and this Mascara does not come close to Maybelline in volume. It is cheaper than Maybelline at R139.00 and if you don't need a Mascara that makes your eyelashes thick and dark then this may be for you.

This month we received the Attimo L'Eau Florale Eau de Toilette and I really liked this fragrance compared to the Ferragamo perfume from February's box. This is the product description from Rubybox 

 "What’s this?

An Eau de Toilette with white floral, fresh and aquatic accords.
What does it do?
A fragrance that exudes the most graceful side of femininity, with a touch of seduction and sensuality.
What does it smell like?
Opening with luscious and crisp Nashi Pear, colourful hints of Kumquat and delicate watery Lotus Flower notes. The graceful and naturally elegant  of the fragrance is a triumph of rosy and subtly spicy Peony with a sophisticated touch of Bulgarian Rose and soft Jasmin. Why we ♥ it
It’s truly feminine, summery and would make a great gift for lovers of nice light floral scents!".
Less is definitely more when it comes to this fragrance and the R849.95 bottle will last forever or you can buy the sample 1.5ml to try it for R20.00

I did not enjoy the Beaucience Cleansing Gel at all. I use Nivea Cleansing Gel and there is no comparison at all. I used it once just to try it out, but was not impressed enough to even just finish the sample.

 Dove Deodorant - who doesn't know Dove. I use Dove Roll On Deodorant, because I prefer roll on and then perfumed body spray or just perfume. I tried the Anti-Perspirant a couple of times and then forgot about it, but still prefer the roll on. There was a full size spray in the Rubybox, but I think R24.95 is a bit more than what you would pay for the spray in stores.

Then finally there was a R50.00 discount voucher for an Ipad Sleeve or Charge Purse and I can't comment on this as I don't have an Iphone or Ipad and didn't even look into it.

March Rubybox was a disappointment, but that is my personal opinion base on my personal taste and preferences.
